We arrived in San Jose late the first Friday of our trip. Chris’s cousin and his fiancé were kind enough to have us stay with them for two weeks. During that time we worked from home, took day trips, and hung out with family and friends.
The first day trip we took was into San Francisco, a city that we both know (a little bit) and love. We had been to SF a few times with family but hadn’t ever explored on our own, so we decided to.
First stop after we arrived in the city was of course, for coffee. We had seen the Creamery before when we took the CalTrain in from the city, but hadn’t had a chance to try it. We sat outside and had espressos. Amazing.
Next we took an Uber to Chestnut Street, by Fishermans Warf and decided to shop. We walked around for a few hours before deciding to grab something at Squat and Gobble, where we sat on the garden patio and enjoyed an amazing brunch. The crab cake benedict is something I’m still thinking about. If you are in San Fran for breakfast or lunch, go there and order it.
We found so much street art in SF. Every mural we passed I fell in love with, especially around Haight/Asbury.
I had worn a sweater into the city, thinking that it would be chilly, unfortunately I was warm. I was on a hunt to find something lighter. I found a kimono in a tiny, adorable little shop on Haight and was trilled about my purchase. I love to mix my outfits with pieces that I randomly find so I was excited to add this to my collection. I had decided that day on high waisted jeans and a white tank, flat sandals. Basics with a statement piece is usually what I go for.
Before heading home we grabbed a few watermelon beers from 21st Amendment, one of our favorite microbreweries in the city. Highly recommend it in the summer.
