My First San Francisco Adventure

Hello everyone, I'm back and missed you all! Last week Chase and I flew down to San Francisco for the first time to attend TwitchCon and explore. The TwitchCon event went on for 2 days and the reminder of the 3 days were spent exploring. Fisherman's Warf, Golden Gate Bridge, and Alcatraz were on our list of things to do. Today, I'm sharing some photos with you all from our trip! Hope you enjoy:-).  

Tee: Dynamite (buy here)| Jeans: Banana Republic (buy here) | Flats: Aldo (similar)| Necklace: Forever 21 (similar)

Loafers: J Crew Outlet (buy here)| Capris: H&M (similar) | Bucket Bag: Banana Republic (similar)| Blouse: XCVI (similar)| Necklace: BaubleBar (buy here)

Luckily we booked our tour to Alcatraz a month in advance as the tours were all sold out when we got there. Alcatraz was one of the best tours we've ever done and would highly recommend to anyone visiting San Francisco for the first time. 

When we got home we watched the movie, Escape from Alcatraz with Clint Eastwood!

Our first time trying Johnny Rocket's Burger and we loved it! We don't have one in Canada, so we wanted to ensure we checked out restaurants we don't have back home. We also got a chance to try In-N-Out Burger, which I actually liked more than Johnny Rocket's. 

T-Shirt: H&M (buy here)| Skirt: Forever 21 (similar) | Flats: Aldo (buy here)| Purse: Forever 21 (similar)| Sunglasses: Forever 21 (similar)

I finally got a chance to wear this denim mini skirt, as the weather wouldn't necessarily allow for it back home. Unfortunately, I'll have to put it away until next summer...:-(. 

Tank Top: Zara (similar)| Skirt: Forever 21 (similar) | Flats: Aldo (buy here)| 
Purse: Banana Republic (similar)

We checked out the Beach Street Grill in Fisherman's Wharf for breakfast, so amazing! Chase was really excited for his pancakes. As you can see...lol. And I had the most amazing Fresh Crab Benedict!!

On our last day we went back to the Golden Gate bridge because I wanted to check out Baker Beach. It was super chilly the last day, so I made sure to bundle up with lot's of layers this time:-). 

Top: Em (similar)| Cardigan: Forever 21 (similar) | Flats: Top Shop (buy here)| Jeans: Banana Republic (similar)| Purse: Nordstrom (buy here)| Scarf: Forever 21 (similar)

The trip was great and I truly enjoyed every little bit of San Francisco. Unfortunately, we missed our flight back home which left us having to book with another airline, as Allegiant didn't leave again until 2 days later. We didn't necessarily estimate our time properly for how long it would take to get back to the airport from our hotel and showed up 10 minutes before departure. At that point they had already closed the gates and we were unable to board. 

Definitely plan our time better next time! 

Stay blissful:-)
