San Francisco Wall Crawl – Day 1

Thank you to Studio DIY for their guide to the best walls in San Francisco. I was smiling from ear to ear as I walked from one wall to another. Who knew that this simple and free activity would make me so happy. Here are the walls I visited on Day 1 of my wall crawl. I have included addresses for each wall in case you are in the San Francisco area and want to go on your own wall crawl!

400 Valencia Street

On the corner of Valencia Street and 15th Street

411 Valencia Street
The artist was in the process of updating this piece and it was by far one of my favorites! The colors were just so gorgeous and vibrant!

1691 15th Street
This piece was not included in the Studio DIY Wall Crawl, but I got a little carried away by all the awesome walls and I couldn’t pass up the shark wearing shades.

Sparrow Street
This is the short street leading to the two amazing walls you are about to see below.

Sparrow Street + Caledonia Street
This one was easy to miss. It is tucked away in what I would consider an alley way. I stumbled upon it by accident and was literally skipping down the alley way with joy!

155 Caledonia Street
This black and white piece was right next door to the colorful one above. Could you imagine this being your front door?

74 Clarion Alley
This alley was full of wall murals. Many of them with some hidden agenda. I have no idea if this painting is trying to tell us something, I just know that I liked the colors. 🙂

Stay tuned … Day 2 of my San Francisco Wall Crawl coming soon.

It’s so fun when unexpected pieces come together to make a really awesome outfit. It’s not everyday that I pair a pink and navy plaid with a knife pleat skirt, but in this case it just works.

The term “Cozy Cold Shoulder” is a bit of an oxymoron, but if you felt this sweater you would know what I mean. The fabric is made from the softest material that just makes you want to curl up in it. This look will be on repeat throughout fall and winter!

Target Dress with Details

I really like the military trend that is happening in fashion right now. Maybe it’s just the color of this dress, but it feels like it fits the trend. I love the contrast of the dress with the leopard clutch, but the shoes tie it all together.

There’s something about adding a leather jacket to an outfit that takes the entire look up a notch. I have a little secret about this striped dress … it’s a maternity dress from Target (insert shocked emoji here)! The maternity version just fit so much better than the regular version.
