Flower Power

12 Aug

I guess you could say I woke up on the wrong side of the bed this morning. Just one of those days, you know what I mean?

Felt sick, looked like crap, got a bullshit $65 parking ticket, and on and on.

And then it happened… the sun came out for the first time in weeks – just what I needed to brighten my day. I chugged a kombucha, put on some summer(ish) gear, applied coral lipstick, and voilà!.. things are lookin’ up.

…sun, if you’re listening, please stick around… San Francisco needs you.

*wearing: LF shorts & hat, random leotard, Margiela platforms

    You look great – love those culottes!

    I’ve been working in San Francisco for the past year and a half (but live in Chicago) and the weather is just out of control right now. I travel back and forth between the two cities and in Chicago it 100% humidity and 90 degrees and SF is 50 degrees and misty!! eek, it’s been a rough “summer.”

    SO ADORABLE laura!
    im glad the sun came up to cheer you up!
    if you think about it tho, the weather in sf made us get more creative with our wardrobes, of how to look warm while mixing up some summer pieces. It takes practice, and you my friend have mastered it!

    I am loving the hat, the shoes, the whole outfit! Just fabulous :)

    OMG that hat is LOVE! I wish I could pull off hats, my head seems to despise hats of any form on it.

    Awww to the parking ticket. I hate parking in the Bay Area now. I just want a segway or magic carpet to take me places. Parking is such a major bitch now! I remember when I was younger (like 3 years ago) when I was in high school and parking was relatively easy if you were patient. Now it’s near impossible.

    And I’ve tried kombucha too. Not sure it’s my cup of tea, but perhaps have to try again.

    OMG Laura, do you realize during NYFW that I will be looking forward to every outfit you put on? Haha. Just letting it out there we have high expectations for you! =p

    only you could pull off a hat like that, love it! happy weekend to you my dear.

    Sorry you’re not feeling well! You definitely don’t show it in this adorable outfit.

    Also, what’s this kombucha all about? You’re about the 7th person I’ve heard talk about it and I’m beginning to feel like it’s something I need to look into. I thought I read a few months ago that Whole Foods banned it? Do tell!


    Laura Reply:

    Yeah! They Whole Foods banned it bc there were apparently traces of alcohol or something like that (not a problem in my book…). I guess it’s great for your skin, liver, nails, everything… and it totally gives you energy! I usually drink this kind http://www.synergydrinks.com/home.aspx


    Rach is Ordinarily Urbane Reply:

    Thank you so much, Laura! All of those things sound great to me, especially the energy. I’m definitely going to give it a try :)


    Vida Reply:

    Where do you get that one Laura? That’s the one that has been banned all over here. I just picked up two other brands at Mother’s to try them out. I need energy!!!

    Laura Reply:

    They used to have it at Whole Foods but they banned it there. I guess it had traces of alcohol in it or something (which may be why I like it so much). They have it at most of the little corner stores around here.

    Great blog post. I love the shoes! I am glad the sun came out and cheered you up. I am putting in an order for sun and hot weather for when you come down here next week. Can’t wait!


  31. Emma 12. Aug, 2010 at 9:25 pm #

    I am Really Loving that Hat ! So Chic : )


  32. WendyB 12. Aug, 2010 at 8:25 pm #

    You look fab! Great shoes.


  33. brit 12. Aug, 2010 at 7:51 pm #

    is that your patio/stoop/balcony?!? it’s incredible! i need to make it up there soon, i’m missing it!

    i’m absolutely loving the vintage hat and shorts mixed with a sexy modern black top… and of course, the shoes.

    i’d send you some los angeles sunshine if i could!



    Laura Reply:

    Yeah it’s our backyard! We’re pretty lucky to have one in SF.

    I’m headed home to Orange County next weekend for a wedding – hopefully I’ll be able to soak up a little southern California sunshine :)

    If you come to SF you’ve got to let me know so we can get together for lunch or drinks! xx
