My Karina Dress and I in San Francisco

On Friday, I had several meetings in San Francisco, and I decided to wear my black and white Karina dress, my black and white Adam Lippes for Target flats and carry my small Coach satchel.

I love that the dress moves when I move and that it doesn't wrinkle, which makes it perfect for traveling.


I'm still always surprised by the steepness of some of the streets in San Francisco, and I don't think it shows completely in these photos. We saw a woman go down this street with a stroller backwards and slightly to the side. I'm sure she had lots of practice as I don't think I would have dared to do so.



Here is a close up of the dress.


And here are a few shots that show that we actually had some fun when we took these photos.

  5. These are the perfect kinds of dresses to take traveling, Andrea!! And it looks fabulous on you!
    I remember when we were in San Fran---that was the joke between us---up and down, up and down walking the streets. And how the cars parked on the sides---crazy!!

  7. I love this shape of dress on you Andrea. These Karina dresses seem to get such great write-ups, mainly due to the crease free material making them perfect to take away and emerge from luggage looking immaculate. I know I've said this before, but you have the most wonderful smile that just lights up your face. I think you ought to use your fun shots more often - you look so stunning and happy!

  12. I have never been to California or San Francisco, but I have heard the streets can be pretty steep! I can't imagine pulling a stroller up or down one! This dress is so pretty, I love that it is a classic b/w and the pattern is perfect and could be layered with other pieces easily! Def. a travel staple!

Your shoes and bag are the perfect accessories and you chose a lovely spot for your photos. But my favorite part is the that warm, big grin! You are beautiful, my friend.
