On Saturday Tim and I had a day-long date in San Francisco where we ate Dynamo Donuts, wandered around Yerba Buena Gradens, Westfield Shopping Centre, Union Square, and ended the day watching Sara Bareilles at Bill Graham Civic Auditorium. HELLA EPIC! Technically we ended it by eating In-N-Out.
Anyhow, I wanted to wear something fancy, but I had a hard time putting outfits together. Everything was either too casual looking or it required my pink slip dress that wasn’t anywhere to be found. Half of my closet found its way on my bed. RUGH! But I settled with my modern flapper girl outfit: my maroon felt bucket hat, cardigan, and pink frilly dress. I ditched my t-strap heels for obvious reasons. Ever since I saw that 100 years of London style video back in August, I’ve been wanting to put together a 1920s inspired ensemble. I think I came up with this outfit in October, but couldn’t think of an appropriate place to wear it until Saturday.
Before I headed out, I threw on my furry paw scarf. Fashionable women in the 20’s wore fur stoles, so I thought it made sense.
And now I’m going to finish off this post with tons of pictures of our day!
I’ll be putting up my next post later today which will be all about the foul mouthed goddess: Sara Bareilles. 😀

What a fun date! (And those donuts look deliouc!)
Oh my God, Dynamo Donuts is so amazing. Actually, that’s an understatement. If you ever find yourself in San Francisco, you HAVE to go to Dynamo!
I love your furry paws scarf! I’ve actually been planning on knitting something somewhat similar – wouldn’t be as fuzzy, but a scarf with paws or puppets on the ends. Once I’m finished all my Christmas knitting I’ll give it a try! 😀
Ooh, that sounds like it’ll be cute! Be sure to post what you end up with 🙂
You guys have such interesting donut flavours! We don’t get that here in Australia sadly 😦
I love the lip colour you are wearing!
Those donuts aren’t a common thing here. There are all kinds of specialty donut places scattered across the country, but Dynamo is my favorite!
