pink suede and sushi

 {thrifted boys blazer, Kensie sweater, Asos suede shorts, UO shoes, vintage Coach mini satchel, J. Crew flower pin, rings: H&M, Marley B Parker}

These are the newest suede addition to my closet, and by newest I mean only suede clothing item in the closet! But so far they do not disappoint, a perfect piece to transition from our very short Indian Summer, to the now chilly fall weather I've come to expect from San Francisco, albeit with heavy tights and maybe even tall boots.

I wore this to grab a bite to eat at one of my fave reasonably priced sushi shops in the city- Kiki Japanese Restaurant, and it was perfect for the low key vibe. But next time I wear my shorts I'll make sure to not eat anything in them, since dry cleaning suede costs more than what I paid for them, and because apparently I can't eat without spilling food on my brand new shorts! Yep, you heard right! Already a small blemish on my precious shorts! And no, I'm not dry cleaning them- I'll save that money for more clothes, and-- food!


  1. love the blazer and shoes. I bet your coldest day in SF is nothing compared to our horrendous winter.

  2. Ahh, thats so frustrating! I ALWAYS spill things on my clothes, honestly I'm the clumsiest eater EVER. I just can't buy nice fabrics anymore hahaha. Is the stain in a bad place??

    I love the colour of those shorts - salmony/faded coral - one of my favourite colours.

  3. Loving the color of the shorts and the shoes!

  4. @Huda- haha I guess your right, no more complaining from me unless it starts snowing here!!

    @morganvsmorgan- omg clumsy is my middle name! The stain isn't so noticeable it's actually closer to the bottom- so it can be hidden :) cuz I'm so wearing these again!!

  5. I love your combination! Very street style..

    Would be a pleasure if you visit me on my blog too!

  6. oh,that's bit frustrating,hope it's not showing! great color of the short, very chic!!

  7. I adore your new suede shorts! I've been really wanting suede booties (or a suede jacket, but Sharon won't let me) but that's totally wrong for Bay Area weather (especially the weird rain that comes out of nowhere!)

    AND DITTO on drycleaning costs. I picked up my dry cleaning today for some silk shirts - $80. There has to be a better way.
