A City Within A City

So after like 3 days being stuck at home, I finally went out, which means you guys get a new OOTD post! Yayyy! Today, my boyfriend and I went to Chinatown, where we visited the Golden Gate Fortune Cookie Factory!! It was pretty cool to see how fortune cookies are made because I tried making fortune cookies before at home, but it was a failure :( came out like bread..Anyways, I bought a whole bag of unfolded cookies for $5 for  my mom buuuut my boyfriend was addicted to it and ate like half LOL 


Anyways, we went to the Cable Car Museum after that, which was FREE!! Woooot! Did you know that the cable cars in San Francisco move by the rotating wheels and cables under ground?? I though that was pretty crazy. I have so much San Francisco pride haha! 

Anyways here, I'm wearing a pretty dark outfit which is a bit uncommon since I usually have a bright something in my outfit. The tie-front tank was DIY. I just cut a slit up the middle of the shirt and voila! You get a tie-front tank! :) 
You can't see it in this picture but my leggings are made out of suede which is quite interesting. I absolutely LOVE the little light grey lines on the side of them, makes them look modern! 

Going shopping tomorrow! So cuter outfits coming soon!

    1. You definitely need to check out some of the places on this list:
      http://blog.sfgate.com/sfmoms/2009/04/27/103-things-all-s-f-kids-should-do-in-the-city-before-they-grow-up/
      Alcatraz, Pier 39, Golden Gate Bridge, Chinatown, Palace of Fine Arts, Alamo Park, Coit Tower, riding the cable cars --they're all the mandatory touristy places to go obviously :)

      However, there's so much more to SF than just those things. Each district really has its own culture and vibe (and sometimes microclimates LOL). I suggest thrift stores in the Haight and Mission districts. Definitely need to check out the Marina/ Presidio too! :)
