San Francisco: Pleats + Meetup!

I'm sick today and ended up spending the whole day in my pajamas. So instead today's outfit post, I decided to finally sort through some of my trip pictures from when I went out to San Francisco for a wedding back in August.

San Francisco is one of my favorite cities in the world.  The city has such a modern feel to it and yet it still keeps so much of its old traditions -- how can you pass up a ride on the trolley, right?!  I also love a city that's made for walking.  These pictures are actually from Day 2 of my trip out there (see here for Day 1) and after braving the first day in heels, I decided to give my feet a break and wear the practical flats.  :)

I was able to meet up with Jess and Revanche who took Adrian and me to have lunch at Roli Roti -- a food truck found at the back of the Ferry Building. The weather was absolutely perfect for some outdoor eating and it was fun chatting about shopping, finances, and even comic books!

We spent the afternoon hiking up to Coit Tower {thank goodness I was wearing flats!}, which was incredibly scenic and picturesque.

After making it down from our hike, Pam met up with our little group and we huddled inside a Starbucks and chatted the rest of the time away until I had to leave for my wedding.  Thank you girls for making my visit to San Francisco so memorable!!

Hopefully I'll be back to 100% tomorrow and have an outfit post for you!
