Travel Diary: California

August 13, 2014

I don't have a second outfit post lined up this week (too busy savoring every minute in CA with Mark), but here are some snaps from the past week in northern California visiting my beau. 

Mark's campus is so quaint and beautiful, and so different from the University of Minnesota.

The beautiful view from Lombard Street in San Francisco. 

Lombard Street was so fun to see (crazy packed with tourists though). The houses on the street were stunning!

When Mark mentioned something about a vintage arcade, I had a feeling that a scene from The Princess Diaries took place there. Sure enough, I spotted this guy that Julie Andrews the Queen of Genovia arm wrestled.

Concert selfie. 

One of the highlights of my trip was the Beyonce and Jay-Z concert in SF (best boyfriend ever!). Needless to say, they were amazing. The entire thing was just a huge production: pyrotechnics, dancing, videos. The concert was outside at AT&T Park where the Giants play. We had a pretty good view of the Bay Bridge, but this picture doesn't do it justice. 

On one of our last days together we took a ferry across the SF Bay to Sausalito. Here's a view of the Bay Bridge from the ferry (with some much needed chai tea to keep warm).

Sausalito was stunning. So many beautiful houses built up into the hills with what I can only imagine are insane views of the bay and SF. 

We had a lovely lunch sipping long island ice teas and watching sailboats go by. 

We ended our time in Sausalito sitting at a bar on a balcony with this view. Doesn't get much better than that. 

Overall it was a fabulous trip. I loved being able to spend the whole week with Mark and explore more of the area that he calls home!

  1. I love Cali! Looks like an amazing time! My sister used to live in San Jose, so we would ride the Cal train up to San Fran all the time! Now two of my boyfriends' best friends are moving to the area, so hopefully we can visit them soon :)

  2. Looks amazing!

    Hope you had fun shakin' it with Beyonce! Beautiful photos!

  3. Lombard Street was so fun to see (crazy packed with tourists though). The houses on the street were stunning!
