Mr. Rogerin' On Em

Got on my Mr. Rogers steez by dusting off this old cardigan from the back of my closet last week. Our Indian summer is slowly dying down, so that means I get to slowly start layering my clothes the farther we get into fall. But in all honesty, the weather here in San Francisco is pretty constant through out the year, so layering isn't something you really have to wait till fall/winter to do. It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood.

When Seed Store in the Inner Richmond open up its doors a couple years ago, I would poke in every now and then when I lived in the area. Now that it's a bit farther from where I live now, I make sure to stop in whenever I happen to be in the neighborhood. I found this Map Tote bag there with a pretty accurate map of San Francisco. You know, in case I get lost. Imelda has a tendency to stumble upon these random murals through out the city, this one being around her block. It was a beautiful day in the neighborhood, for sure.

Modern Furnishing

Stopped by the Contemporary Jewish Museum a couple weeks ago to check out their current exhibition Designing Homes: Jews and Midcentury Modernism. In a nutshell, the exhibit outlined the history of Jewish architects, designers, and artists in the 1930s-40s and their contribution to modern architecture and design.

I always kind of had an interest in modern design because I find the shapes and unique designs to be fascinating on the eye. And also a part of me wants my entire apartment furnished with the pieces in this exhibit. This was actually my first time checking out the CJM, and it's worth a visit if you have a couple hours to spare and are in Downtown SF. Be sure to check out the exhibit before it closes out on October 6th!

Back To No School

Hey guys, sorry for the leave of absence I recently took. I spent an entire 2 weeks over on the East Coast hanging out in Washington D.C. and visiting family in Virginia. I'm officially back in San Francisco now (for about a week and a half, actually) and it's been hell trying to get back into the swing of things. I for real need a vacation from my vacation. Who wants to fund it?

So we are officially into September, which means back to classes from a lot of college students. I graduated from SFSU years ago, so that statement doesn't apply to me anymore. Shout out to all the college kids trying to earn a degree though. As corny as it may sound, I actually kind of miss going to college and the school work to accompany it.

Spent the day hanging out with Imelda at South Park, a little neighborhood I had no idea existed tucked away in the SoMa area. It kind of reminded me of a neighborhood you would see on the East Coast, with all the trees lined up through out the sidewalks, along with the large park area that is in the center of the neighborhood. Discover something new here everyday. 

My canvas Fossil backpack has been pretty much my favorite city bag the last 2 months. I don't know... I just like the vintage look of canvas with the leather trimming. It's also gives me a nostalgic feeling of when I was back in college and would drag 5 tons worth of books in my bag from class to class. Now, it just holds my city essentials from traveling between mine and Cody's apartment.

The start of September actually signifies San Francisco's 30 days of summer. September is actually the hottest month here in SF. So not going to put away my tank tops and coochie cutters away just yet. It's about to get real hot in the City by the Bay :).
