March 19th: Vintage car and cherry blossom fanatic? Then, head on over to Saratoga for the 2016 Blossom Festival for free tissue flowers from the Girl Scouts, awesome music from the 30’s and 40’s, and more muscle cars than your gear-head could even dream of. I’ll be citybound today, but lucky for us city dwellers (and corndog lovers) the country’s largest corndog festival is happening today!

March 20th:The lucky first 150 customers that strut into Chantal Guillon on the 20th will receive a FREE MACARON in honor of Macaron Day (after making a purchase and whispering the secret phrase found on their website). Take your macaron over to Ameba Records for a free show featuring Japanese guitarist Rei. I just gave her song JUMP a listen and LOVED IT!!!

March 24th: For those of you considering a career in fashion, PeopleWearSF’s lecture in crowdsourcing your fashion business might be right up your alley. Hear sage advice from two successful crowd-sourced fashion entrepreneurs Julia Zolinsky, the business strategist at Blackbird Underpinnings, and Mary Going, founder and CEO at Saint Harridan. Grab your tickets here!

March 26th: Attn Flora Fans: Don’t miss the last beautiful magnolia blooms of the season at the Botanical Gardens. Looking to beautify your home with blooms of your own? Head over to Oakland for the Free Plant Exchange and get growing! If I were to go to one event this month, it would be this: Learn if Your Cat Loves You and More Answers for Cat Lovers. Cat Guru of Ohio State Dr. Tony Buffington talks everything feline and how to keep your kitty purrrrfectly content. Plus, free snacks for humans and cats!


The Barracks

Sunday was spent accidentally driving to Sausalito, drinking Dark and Stormys, celebrating Mothra’s Day, and taking pictures in the Presidio. The fella was more than happy to comply when I asked him to do this little photo shoot for me. It has been AGES since I posted a OOTD!pja1 pja2

This was the first day I wore my School’s Out Chambray dress from Nasty Gal. It shows a little more skin than I’m used to, But it was perfect for a warm, breezy day! I paired it with my new favorite ankle boots I found in Anthropologie’s sale.

“Spin around,” he said. I love twirling in this tulle-skirted dress.

I’m not 100% certain what this building is used for today, but we had a great time exploring. The stark white clapboards of this renovated Military building has an slightly-eery charm.
