Overall July has been a pretty amazing month. The month started with a pretty incredible post-graduation trip to Mexico, which was all-in-all the most relaxing vacation I've been on. The rest of the month was pretty exciting too with finishing moving back to San Francisco and getting settled back into city life. I feel like this month flew by and before we know it it's going to be fall.
Walking around downtown with a friend I saw this tiny old building sandwiched between two big buildings, I don't know why it caught my eye so much but I absolutely loved it.
The Castro theatre is one of the best (if not the best) movie theatre in San Francisco. They regularly screen old movies and do sing-a-longs, which people get really involved in. I'm definitely looking forward to going to their screening of the Rocky Horror Picture Show around Halloween this year.
Went over to Golden Gate Park with my boyfriend and sister and snapped a shot of Donut World, which is a kind of grimy (but not gross) and super cheap donut shop nestled right in the inner Sunset. It's places like these that remind me that while San Francisco has changed a lot while I've been in college, there are little corners of the city that hopefully will never change.
Went up to the observation deck at the DeYoung Museum after seeing the Summer of Love exhibit. I would definitely recommend seeing the exhibit if you'll be in San Francisco during the summer and it's definitely worth making a trip up to the observation deck afterwards to get some pretty incredible 365 views of the city.

Walked down Dolores Street to meet some friends at Dolores Park. I love walking down Dolores during the summer because its one of the few parts of San Francisco where it actually feels like a quintessential California summer with the palm trees and sunshine.

I feel like July has been the month of taking walks. Where I went to school there weren't many places to just go and take a nice walk, but now that I'm back in a city where there are tons of great places to take walks I've been taking full advantage of it. This particular walk was out at Land's End on a clear enough day to see the Golden Gate Bridge.
One of my favorite coffee shops is the Mill, a place where I have been spending a lot of time this month brainstorming content for the blog.
Had a really fun day with one of my best friends wandering around North Beach. All of the juxtaposing architecture is one of my favorite aspects of that neighborhood.
We also wandered over to Jackson Square, which is right next to North Beach, and is easily one of my favorite neighborhoods. It is one of the oldest neighborhoods in San Francisco and because of it has some really amazing brick buildings that remind me of the West Village in New York.
All of this foggy weather is making me very excited for Autumn and Winter, especially autumnal clothing.
