“Just one more cable car ride, Mommy” said my seven year old on our last morning in San Francisco. We had a hard time leaving “The City”. A one night stay at the Fairmont was extended to two nights and then we were having such a great time we extended one more to make three. I had been reluctant to visit San Francisco with my son. I spent the first nine years of my post college, professional life in San Francisco before moving to New York City. The city is filled with memories of my twenties. Good memories, but I had felt finished with the city. My son and I have started a tradition of taking mother son trips to new cities that neither of us has visited. San Francisco meant returning to my past. I ended up having a completely new experience and it was such a treat to see “The City” through my seven year old’s eyes.
On our last night we went to the Tonga Room at our hotel, the Fairmont, and had a blast. The cover band was amazing and it was so much fun to watch them as they played in a boat that cruised around the plunge pool. Every twenty minutes rain falls (with lightening) around the pool and my son was quick to put up his drink umbrella.
This week’s manicure commemorates our trip and was my son’s idea. The color is “Lace Me Up”, by Essie Gel Couture. The manicure and nail art are by Olive & June.

San Francisco Travel Guide
I just got back from San Francisco where the anniversary celebration of the Summer of Love is in full swing. Check back next week for more on my adventures. It was fun to spend some time in the city where I spent my twenties with my travel loving seven year old.
In the meantime, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is coming to a close and I wanted to share two more floral looks. I styled this floral blouse with these pants and pink suede shoes. The shoes are almost sold out, but I think these and these would both look great. I styled the same shoes with this blouse and jeans. The sale end this Sunday, August 6th.

Sometimes I do crave basic black and white, but not boring. This sweater and pants fit the bill. I paired them with the most comfortable booties. They do break my no black shoes rule, but with the textured detail they add interest.
We are in the final stretch of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. The sale ends on Sunday, August 6th with prices going back to full price on Monday, August 7th. Don’t miss out. It is also the best time to shop for basics like these, this and these cozy pajamas.
