San Francisco OOTD #1

I arrived in San Fran yesterday and I couldn't be more excited to explore this awesome city. My brother has lived here for 3 years now and I finally made it to visit him. I have never heard anyone who has been here not like it which makes me even more keen on 10 days of adventures ahead.

I thought I will try to document most of my travel outfits for the blog. I found packing for this trip really difficult for multiple reasons:

Reason 1: When I asked my brother whats the weather in May he said if one day is +14c and then it might be +27c the next. This left me totally confused if I need to concentrate on jackets and pants or can I bring some nice summer dresses.

Reason 2: My current wardrobe in Dubai consist 85% of dresses and skirts -most of them in light materials and not suitable to wear with tights. I also own only one thicker leather jacket and a few light blazers and that is it. I'm not even exaggerating. I have very few jumpers and sweaters, I have left most of these in Estonia.

Reason 3: I wear heels a lot in Dubai as walking is pretty minimal. San Fran however is known for the hills and I knew I need to leave my heels home and try to figure out some outfits with flats.

With all this in mind here is my first comfy exploring the city outfit for a sunny but windy day.

I picked up the light wool grey baggy trousers from Topshop outlet last month. They are really unusual pick for me but as they fit well I figured it would be a fun piece to create outfits with. I have since found out that they look great with heels and crisp white top for work and I equally like them with my dainty converse for a casual days like this.

The cashmere jumper is borrowed from my sister and is by a British brand Luella. I would love to link something similar for you but couldn't find anything online. Bag is my Sophie Hulme Zip Top Bowling Bag that I still adore. I normally dont wear it as a cross-body but for a long day of walking its a good option. This baby is sold out everywhere online but keep an eye out if you are searching for a perfect black bag. Im sure it will be back in stock at some point given its popularity.

Thats it for todays post. A short nap ( and a trip to Sephora) is now in order and then I must go for dinner and eat all the food. See you later lovelies.

  3. I'm currently putting my outfits together for my holiday to Dubai this weekend and thankfully (after your comments) they're mainly dresses and heels!!

    Dare I admit I'm one of the few people who did not like San Fran?! Eeekkk… I went last year for a couple of nights en route to Hawaii and was really disappointed especially as everyone had told us how amazing it was. I'd love to return with a local to show me around and what I was missing.

    Looking forward to hearing more via your blogposts.
