Meeting Atlantic~Pacific & the Weekend In Instagram

Maybe it’s your favorite movie star, a professional athlete, Madonna, Justin Bieber (jk), Rihanna, etc. who might give you butterflies meeting in person. But as most fashion bloggers might agree, there’s a few at the top who would be inspiring to meet outside the blogosphere. Guys I know do not understand this at all, but I was definitely excited to meet uber fashionista and the creator of one of my favorite style blogs, Blair of Atlantic~Pacific, for a few minutes at the store opening of Alice+Olivia in San Francisco last Thursday.
Here’s a little collage below by the clothing company, The City Supply Co. after its CEO, Wallace the pup, tagged along for the store opening. Wallace seemed less than enthralled with the meeting trying to wiggle out of my arms. But like I said, guys just don’t ‘get’ fashion blogging behind-the-scenes. 😉
Weekender In Instagram…
I also just got my first iPhone ever (not a big deal, I know) but I had to take Instagram for a whirl. I’m learning, but here’s a recap of pics I snapped and filtered in Instagram over the last few days. 
(I recommend this App to everyone. It’s fun, easy and makes any pic a little edgy.)
Filet Mignon Friday ~ My New Favorite Steakhouse in SF ~ Alexander’s
Dinner apparel in Forever 21 fashion finds ~ Gold Metallic skirt (old) & Zebra ring (new)
‘Pimp’n Aint Easy’ ~ A real one walking down Market St. Friday afternoon
Birthday Celebration for one of my best friend’s, Whitney, in Berkeley Saturday night
Late Night Tennis ~ Un-winding from the weekend. Nail polish (Sinful Colors – Neon Fusion)
Tennis in my sometimes lucky neon Nikes

Philz Coffee (My fave in SF)~ Greater Alarm with cream & sugar ~ Monday morning pick-me-up

It’s a Small World Afterall ~ I keep this mini globe at my desk to make sure I know where places are I hear about on the news. I recommend it to everyone who is geographically challenged like myself.

San Francisco lunch time stroll around the Embarcadero ~Bay Bridge

If you use Instagram, do you like it? 
Let me know if you do and I’ll follow you. 🙂

I recently discovered Lauren & her super-cute blog ThreePinkDots (she could design blogs for a living). She just feautured me in her “What’s in her Bag” post. So after I cleaned out all the TJMaxx receipts, pennies and candy wrappers, here’s a peak into the essentials I stash into my purse almost every day. Thanks Lauren!

Hope you had a great weekend.

    • Yea I seriously wish I would have got one a long time ago, I hate AT&T so I got it through Verizon. Easiest phone to use though, if you get Instagram let me know 🙂

    How seriously awesome! I always wonder what it would be like to actually meet the lovely ladies of the blogs I interact with everyday. Probably epic like your meeting with Blair. Just be careful with your Iphone, their wildly addictive;you may turn into an Iphonaholic. I used to hate Iphone users until I became one of them. Now I’m just as annoying. lol. Simply can’t get enough.

    Happy Tuesday,
    Left brain, right brain, pug brain.

    • haha, thanks Andrea and no I didn’t ask him (took that from my car) hehe. BUT I see tons of those outfits at stores in the Mission and some near 7th & Market. There are definitely more stores than you’d think in SF carrying outfits like these 🙂

  35. I love Atlantic-Pacific too! She knows how to pair clothes so beautifully, but I start hating my closet every time I read her posts because they just don’t compare haha. I wish I had an iphone for those instagram pictures- it’s such a cute way to frame your day (didn’t mean to rhyme there).

    Love your blog & love Instagram too!! We participate in Fat Mum Slim’s Photo-a-Day challenge & we run all of our photos through Instagram for that added “wow” factor. There’s also a place called CanvasPop that can turn your instagram faves into large canvases to hang in your house. Definitely check them out!

    Atlantic-Pacific is a total bloglebrity (blogger + celebrity…haha) so I don’t blame you for being so excited!

    By the way, my husband & I just booked a trip to San Fran for the first week of September. (YAY!!!) I know how much you love your amazing city, so if you have any recommendations for things to do/see/eat/drink, I’m all ears!! 😉

    Hope you’re having a fab day!
