The Hidden Garden Steps are tucked away in the hills of the Inner Sunset. I was thinking during our walk to this location how peaceful it felt and how much I was enjoying it. Coincidentally, a few days after we took these photos, this location came up in my Facebook feed as a good place to visit when you're feeling antisocial in San Francisco. I often have introverted tendencies and it's easy to get overwhelmed with all the hustle and bustle of the city. I feel the need to "get away" from time to time and this walk gave me time to decompress.
For the first look I am wearing a green and black striped turtleneck dress byEverly and a cozy knit vest by LOOK. I was unsure how the two olive tones would look against each other, but felt the subtle stripes in the dress would create enough contrast to make the look work. Layers like this are ideal for San Francisco because the weather is so unpredictable. All you have to do is peel the vest on or off depending on the change in temperature throughout the day.
We made our way to the top of the steps and I felt it was time for an outfit change. Green was the theme this day, apparently, and I shimmied into a t-shirt dress by Teenplo The walk over was full of fog and mist, but we finally met with the sun kissed hill and this lightweight option was more appropriate. I kept the BC booties and Urban Expressions bag the same and added three layered necklaces to spicen it up. I wasn't crazy about the lighting here, but loved that you could see Sutro Tower peeking behind me.
We continued our walk down the hill and found a fun fence that complimented the dress even more. Once I decided I was happy with this shot, for advertising purposes, I was ready for another outfit change.
I love that this house is different from the rest in the neighborhood. It reminds me of the architecture found in Texas or Palm Springs. I also loved the contrast of my dark look against the cream house. For this shot I layered the previous dress I had on with a cozy sweater dress byLumiere Fashion. The dress length is appropriate in the front, but has slits on the side which is why I did not want to wear it alone. Again, we kept the purse, shoes, and necklaces the same. This post reinstates why booties are my favorite shoe. They are a versatile style for cuteness and comfort.
This is what a day is like for me as a blogger. I often shoot several looks in one day, but usually create different posts for each look. We walk around the city with bags full of clothes in hopes of finding complimentary locations. Blogging is fun, but very time consuming. It takes hours and hours to style, find locations, take good photos, write the post, add links, etc. I appreciate everyone who takes the time to look at my work and who truly support me. Thanks for taking a walk with me today!
