Brogue Faves on Fillmore & Hayes

This was probably my fave San Francisco outfit. The brogues were an impulse sale buy and were too nice to be covered up by the flares of my jeans, hence me rolling them up. I often find that impulse buys are the best and most versatile items you own, plus sometimes you just can't leave lovely things behind (a bit like not being able to leave that puppy in the pet shop). They served me very well walking up and down the unforgively steep hills of San Francisco, seen here on the corner of Fillmore and Hayes.

Sitting on a Wall of the Bay

Stopping for a rest whilst walking and taking in the wonderful view that is San Francisco Bay (Alcatraz in the background!)... comfort was needed that day as we did so much walking. Loving my pre-holiday purchase of my coral-red bag (how can it go with just about everything???)

A Work of Art

Taken at San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (what a beautiful building) in front of an installation on the top floor. Jeans, comfy tank (worn several times on holiday, I did wash it!) and a statement necklace. Hard not to get your hair stuck in it, though.

40 Minus 1

So here it is - my first post on my 39th birthday. The challenge? To post outfits on this blog for a year and to look as good as possible in my forties, remembering I'm not 22 any more. Who cares that I'll be forty soon - I kinda see it as a challenge. Bring it on!

(Photo taken on holiday the other week in San Francisco... more to come from the holiday soon before I do any daily outfits. Gotta work out this blogger design thing first.)
