it’s been a pants kind of week here at calivintage. i think this has to do with the fact that the weather has been just a bit more chilly than the sunny skies would suggest. so i opted for comfort in this preppy look for a day of street style hunting. knowing that i would need to wear a pair of comfortable flats for all that walking around, i opted to break in my new black flats! i’ve been wanting a perfect pair of simple ballerina flats for the past couple years so i was delighted when swedish hasbeens answered my prayers and offered to send me this lovely pair after i wrote about them in this post. they’re the exact type of shoes that i expect will last me for years to come!
ooh, and while i was out street style hunting, i finally got to check out the shopping in hayes valley. i happened upon a teeny tiny little garage space called the bull and the bear. the have a beautiful selection of handmade clothing, and when i passed by, i spotted the most perfect sheer lace dress with a little peter pan collar. i’m going back this weekend to see if it’s still there!
