San Francisco // 3 Spots to Try

If you are wondering if you're reading the right blog, I assure you that you are. If you follow me on Snapchat (username: AdriLately), you probably aren't too surprised I'm talking about food or drinks. Just as much as I live for shopping, I love trying new places to eat (that includes a good cocktail) and traveling. I've gone on a handful of trips this year and haven't shared what to eat or drink (that's selfish as a blogger, riiight?) One place that was practically a second home to me during my early college years was San Francisco. Now, I still keep going back and trying new spots because you can't taste it all and honestly there's so many great restaurants in that amazingly cold city. Side note: I can't handle weather below 70 degrees. But I will endure it for a trip to San Francisco.

COQUETA // Let me just say that coqueta means flirty girl in Spanish. I had no clue because my Spanish is subpar. It's exactly that. Flavors just flirting with your tastebuds in the best way. It is Spanish and tapas style, so be prepared to order several dishes. It's located right along the water near the Bay Bridge. Definitely a good spot for a special meal. You'll want to make reservations or else you might get lucky with a seat at the bar.

LEO'S OYSTER BAR // If you can't appreciate an Instagram worthy spot, then just get past the picture perfect decor and order a drink. But let's be real-I wanted to take all those mirrors home. We didn't actually have oysters because we had been eating all.day.long. and we had zero reservations. This place is tiny, so make the reservations if you want to be sure about having a meal here. As an avid lover of cocktails, you need to come here. The attention to detail will be tasted. Just order the Garden Cocktail. 

LOLO // Your first thought when you hear Mexican food is filling. But this quirky spot in the Mission District was just the right way to start our eating binge. These were fish tacos on thin jicama slices. It's a taco I won't forget. The crunch from the fish and the refreshing jicama makes me want to go back right now. Oh, and you won't be disappointed by the margaritas.

Have you been to San Francisco? Let me know if you have a favorite spot I should add to the list.

Transitioning into Fall

What the what? Fall is around the corner. Let me just say that was so hard to type. I have this strong love for Summer and perfect days or nights at the beach and hello ice cream! But one thing that won't stop is white jeans. White jeans in the Fall is part of me just holding on to Summer and part of me finding more neutral combinations. Yesss, I'm looking at you navy and brown. It's an easy way to start mixing in those darker hues. And thanks Jessica for taking these pictures. We had a blogger date a few weeks back that included matcha and a trip to Madewell. #typicalbloggers

Now let's flashback to last year's look here. I was just thinking about this dress. The print and the pleats make me one happy girl!
Thanks so much for joining us for the linkup! There we so many great outfits. We really loved Emily from She Does and Marta from Sweaters, Stripes & Sweets!

In Love With M

If you haven't noticed yet I've been on a huge Madewell kick. I know, I know. I'm like years behind on this one. It's funny because I think it's that I actually prefer shopping them online verse in store. But every time they have a sale I have a shopping wishlist that I'm ready to bounce on. This top (talked about here) was an additional 40% off and got it for under $25. Basically, it was near to nothing. It sold out on their site, but you can find some sizes available here. They are having another sale guys and I've been eying these cute shorts, this jacket, and this denim dress. Someone.stop.me. Did I mention that I just got another order from them yesterday? #obsessedalot

Now that you know my obsession, we can flashback to last year's look here. This is one of those dresses I bought on a whim and ended up being a dress that I put on when I want some compliments. Does anyone else do that? Because we all those days we could use a boost;)

Thank you SO much for linking up with us! There were so many amazing outfits. Our two favorites were Alice from TYPENU and Alicia from Between the Pearls.
