The City by the Bay

 The agenda for the day was simply running/driving around the entire city, therefore I decided to wear an appropriately comfortable yet cute (well I hope it was cute at least) outfit. You see, my friend Katy's friend from college was visiting from college (Harvard to be more exact), therefore we had to show him the great city of San Francisco. The small catch, we met him at 3 and my friend had dinner reservations at 5:30. So a quick tour of the city. We started off downtown, swung over the marina, took some pictures of Golden Gate Bridge (which is where these pictures are from), Crissy Field, Golden Gate Park, the Haight, then finally Ocean Beach to watch the sunset. CRAZY!
It's funny meeting home friend's friends from college. More often than not, I like these new friends (I actually think of them as replacement friends). This makes sense because they get along with your friends, who you get along with. But it's also interesting to see how your friends act slightly differently with these friends from a whole other world. I'm not quite sure if that makes any sense but, whatever.
So on the comfy yet cute outfit description. I'm wearing one of my new favorite sweaters that I bought this past winter. It's this slouchy box sweater from the Gap in an XL. I love everything on my top half being super big and loose and everything on my bottom being super tight. Therefore, my tops usually look like they could cover up a pregnancy well into the second term. I bought these leggings the other day and although they look normal from the picture above they actually have a side panel of leather (ok it's pleather shut up, I'm poor!) from H&M.

  5. I love this outfit! I also am a fan of slouchy on top/tight on bottom--it's the perfect medium between bag lady & cat woman ;) And that top is such a pretty color on you!
