Urban Adventure

One of my favorite things about living in cities like New York and San Francisco, there is always an undiscovered area to explore.  It is so fun to pick a new place and plan a mini adventure.  My friend Carrie and I like to call these our "urban adventures".  Over the weekend we headed over to the Mosaic Staircase, or 16th Avenue Steps, in the Inner Sunset.  Carrie has an affinity for urban staircases so of course we had to check these out! The staircase itself was pretty awesome, but the best part was climbing to the top and getting an amazing 360 degree view of the city.  If you live in SF or are planning a visit, I would recommend adding this spot to your list of things to do!
For our little adventure I had to pull out my high top sneakers.  I bought these Nikes on sale at J. Crew thinking I was a little bit crazy, but I am so glad I did.  Besides the fact that I love them, they are perfect for walking around the city, and worked well for trekking up the staircase.  During the slightly warmer months I get a lot of use out of my jean jacket, which is a relatively new staple for me.  I never used to wear jean jackets, but in the last year I have worn mine a lot.  It really is the perfect extra layer to wear over dresses and skirts.

I also wanted to give a quick shout out to Carrie for being guest photographer on this post! Thank you!
