Exploring

Shirt c/o StyleMint, Dress (worn as skirt) Free People, Purse Coach Classics, Sunnies Ray Ban, Shoes Converse, Lipstick Revlon "Really Red"

On Saturday, Thomas and I decided to explore San Francisco all on foot. 
And spend $0 while doing so. 
We packed up some snacks and water and headed out the door.
Total, we walked about 6 miles and pretty much covered a large portion of the city.
We had blast getting lost in different areas and acting as tourists in our new home. 
We both wore our converse sneakers, which have been a huge life saver
on weekends when we walk everywhere. I already have a least five blisters 
from trying to walk to work in heels :(

Awww, you look so cute! After living in NYC for a few months, I finally gave in and started wearing flats to/from and left all of my heels under my desk at work! Glad you two are having so much fun exploring your new city!

Love the outfits, you both look so all-American! :)

Keep calm and carry lipstick.

La Petite Olga said...

Both outfits are great! I always walk in flats to work and then change into heels. That works best for me cause I'm always a bit late and this way I can be faster than in heels...

San Francisco is such a fun city - sometimes I think the best way to explore is just walking around...you discover the best places that way! Love that striped top and the red lip! :)

When I first started taking mass transit and had a 10 minute walk to work in my commute I refused to be one of those women all dressed up and with sneakers. The look reminded me of Working Girl and the fashion in that movie still scares me! Within the first 6 months of working I ruined so many pairs of shoes because routinely walking that much on concrete isn't exactly what heels were designed for it seems. Now, I rock my Converse on a daily basis and keep a stash of shoes at work!

Naghmeh said...

love the outfit, you look so cute!! I love walking, sometimes in the summer time I'll walk around in an area I haven't before and explore it for special little places!
oh and I would definitely suggest you wear your comfy shoes to walk to work and take a pair of heels with you :)

I love the red and the white! :-) So cute! And I hear ya about the Converse sneakers -- they are great once they are worn in, but breaking them in is killer. I wore mine all over New York City and had the blisters to prove it! :-)

I don't think there's anything I love more than a striped tee. Paired with the white sneakers, it's a perfect combo.

Also, that is the most perfect shade lipstick!

I have the same problem with wanting to wear heels all the time (and I actually do wear them a lot), but I lived in NYC where it's not uncommon to walk a few miles each day. Most women here tuck a pair of flats in their bag and change shoes on the subway when they're getting to where they're going. I also leave a few pairs of heels at my desk and will wear flats into work and change once I'm in the office.
