cherry tomato in spring






There's something about the color of this dress that induces the phrase: "Oh, it feels like spring today." Warm cherry tomato red, which admittedly I don't wear very often, but whenever I do, I feel like I should wear it everyday, all the time. Live in it, even.

As for other matters, thanks for all the San Francisco apartment tips! I really, truly appreciate all your help. I'm still on the hunt, but the neighborhood suggestions help tremendously. I'm no stranger to the SF area, but don't have a good grasp of the "vibe" so to speak of different parts. Instead, I tend to just be sold on the first cute photo of bay windows I see on Craigslist. Probably not the most practical criteria, but hey, I've always wanted bay windows.

So in other words, keep the suggestions coming! Oh, and happy spring, albeit, a bit belated.

Trench: Ruched shoulders trench coat, Zara
Dress: Cherry tomato red ruffled dress, Old Navy
Shoes: Platform heels, Michael Kors
Sunglasses: Tortoise shell sunnies, Fred Flare

  6. If I had any suggestions as far as SF neighborhoods, I'd definitely try to help. However, I have no idea. Just go look at the places with the pretty windows on craigslist, who knows it may end up being a total gem.

  27. I really love the colors here. As you said- they're very springy. And I never thought of tomato red as an attractive color, but I may have to reconsider that opinion.
