Black and White Maxi Skirt and Visiting the Presidio in SF

Last weekend we went to the Cider Summit in San Francisco at the Presidio. We love visiting the Presidio because of its beautiful location right on the bay.

I was again in a black and white mood and decided to wear my black and white maxi skirt that I got at Loft three or four years ago. I did some pattern mixing by pairing the horizontally-striped skirt with my vertically-striped blouse from Banana Republic (also old). I also wore my black and white necklace from White House Black Market. My denim jacket added much needed warmth and kept everything nice and casual. To add just a bit of color, I decided to wear red sandals and carry my rose gold Rebecca Minkoff MAB bag.

Outfit details: Black white striped maxi skirt Loft (similar), black white striped Banana Republic blouse (similar), cropped denim jacket (similar), red Naot sandals - very comfortable (similar Naot sandals in black), Rebecca Minkoff medium MAB bag in rose gold (I also really like the mini MAB bag in guava)

We tasted some delicious cider, and the kid and I played nine rounds of Connect Four (I won once...).

After the Cider Summit we walked around and explored a bit.

We checked out the Gold Rush exhibit. It’s only a one-room exhibit, but it’s very interesting with diaries, medical instruments from the time period, etc. Unfortunately, photography is not allowed inside the exhibit.

We also got some coffee in the Walt Disney Museum but didn’t have time to actually go inside the museum as our parking meter was about to expire.

We took one last look at the Golden Gate Bridge before we drove back home.
