Camp San Francisco.

One thing I really love about San Francisco is that it sort of feels like summer camp all the time. There are tons of activities always going on- like festivals and races and dance parties. Everyone knows someone who is basically a cool arts & crafts counselor- and they're willing to teach you how to screen print or make flower crowns or letterpress. If dancing is your thing, you can head to Golden Gate Park and take free classes every Sunday. Do you like riding bikes? They've made an entire course just for you. There is also such a sense of community, like everyone who lives here is in this together. Whenever one of our sports teams is doing well- you know it. In fact, you can't escape it. The entire city is decked out in team colors, BBQing in front of their apartment buildings, entirely ignoring the lack of a front yard. You can't help but be swept up into the hype; all of the sudden you have the Giants roster memorized- including where they like to drink on weekends.

The best part about living in [Camp] San Francisco is that no one ever takes a beautiful day for granted. When I lived in Boise, you went outside or you didn't- there was no guilt attached. Here... Karl the Fog takes a 3 day weekend and the entire city goes nuts. You cannot sit inside your apartment on a nice day or it will haunt you for weeks. On this day, it was 75 degrees and we were headed to the park. In my tote, you'd find a bottle of champagne and plastic cups. We sprawled out on a huge blanket, listened to our favorite songs, and did nothing but laugh and enjoy the warmth. And, for the sake of this originally being a fashion post, this is what I wore. 


  1. Yea, so this makes me want to move to SF.

  2. I'm with Jess, when can I move? Or at least schedule a visit, I need to get my butt to SF!

  3. I love San Fran! I've only been briefly, but it seems like such an amazing place to live. Also, I'd like to borrow those shoes, please and thank you!

  9. Super cute outfit, Kelli! Particularly partial to the bag and your shorts. I'm always on the lookout for shorts that are just the right length! I was just in SF yesterday, and it's looking like springtime. You probably have many more outfits like this one on your wardrobe radar!


Thank you for reading! xoKelli
