Rocking a very monochrome outfit today—except for the pop of red, but who could resist?

off the grid

One of the best parts of living in San Francisco? The food. The selection at Off the Grid on Friday nights is unparalleled. My favorites are Bini’s Kitchen’s turkey momo dumplings, the Lobsta Truck’s lobster bisque, the Chairman’s Coca-Cola-braised pork bun, and Curry Up Now’s chicken tikka masala burrito.

Mint, burgundy, dark grey, gold and brown… this is seriously my favorite color palette ever, so I had to document the outfit last week on my lunch break during work. I also can’t get enough of Q-Pot’s jewelry… the line is exclusively sold in Japan, and sadly the one U.S. store location on O’ahu closed. I guess I’ll have to cherish the pieces I have!

 Nothing like a chilly, overcast day to haul out some overalls. These babies are actually a new addition to my wardrobe and are incredibly comfy. I foresee many an afternoon lazing around in them.

This little urban garden is a magical spot. So many succulents, so little time. The contrast with the concrete really makes these plants pop. As for my outfit… I came to the camo trend very late, and only have this one piece in my closet, but I love it in the motorcycle cut. This quintessential San Francisco weather has me layering up again—I can never get enough of Karl the Fog, so I hope he sticks around! Also, meet Tag, a little Shiba Inu friend who came round to say hello.
