‘What to Wear’ to America’s Cup

SS_072913_AmericasCup_COVER

Brrr! It’s great to be back in San Francisco. Despite the chilly, fog-filled days SF summers are known for in July; I’m doing my best to venture out sans hoodies and hot cocoa in between the final days of wedding prep. On Sunday I met up with America’s Cup marketing for a tour of the posh premises full of spectators, pop-up restaurants, LV swag and of course, catamarans. I wanted the full scoop on the action taking over the Bay this summer.

This year, the Louis Vuitton Cup is being held in San Francisco and to be honest, I didn’t really know what it’s all about. From one fashionista  to another, I’d like to answer a few questions in case you’re thinking of taking a stroll down the Embarcadero from ‘what to wear’ to what you’ll see….

What is the America’s Cup? ~ The world’s ‘oldest active trophy’ in an international sport, but the sport itself is yacht racing. Super fast yacht racing that lasts from through Sept. 21st this summer in SF.

What’s with the LV Swag? ~ Louis Vuitton is one of the official sponsors and yes there is a special pop up store near Pier 23 with a special edition LV collection.

What Do You Actually See? You can watch qualifying races, see stylish exhibits and soak in the historical roots behind the sport. Or, grab a bite at the authentic New Zealand cuisine pop-up restaurant or take a peek at Larry Ellison’s yacht like I was doing here.

What to Wear ~ The temps drop into the 50’s and 60’s near the Bay, hence the heavy sweater and Nespresso Cappuccino in mid-July.

Insiders Tip ~ Each morning a few special San Francisco edition LV bags with orange details are released. This lasts through the end of the races and there were only about 400 made total. (Sidenote – If you love LV and the Giants, you will want this bag.)

  1. I love your outfit! I live near SF and I have not heard of this. It sounds interesting!

  2. I’ve never heard of America’s Cup, but I love how you dressed for it — and all of the LV swag! Your sweater and skirt combo is so cute.

  3. Great pics! It’s been cooler here in Ohio this past few weeks–perfect for a light sweater. The LV bag is fab! xo T.

  4. Dale, the America’s Cup races are vested in history and are extremely sacred. Only the finest yachtsmen on Earth compete and the specifications of the crafts is precisely defined. They only occur every 4 years. How fortunate you are to be in SF during this time. How are the wedding plans going? Can’t wait to hear more.

  5. Great shots – What fun! <3

  6. You look so perfect in this outfit! I love the sweater with the skirt and I wore a similar look yesterday, but with a blue pair of shorts. 😉 The weather here has been so weird, that I can’t believe I have worn sweatshirts this time of year even! Hope all is well Dale! xx Pip
