Morning stroll on Lakeshore in Oakland

Morning stroll on Lakeshore in Oakland

Scarf- Buffalo Exchange, San Francisco, $8

Shirt- Goodwill, (Old Navy), Nashville, TN, $2.15

As I have mentioned, I am on vacation right now in the lovely Oakland, CA. My friend and I are staying with her sister here, but we are spending most of our days traveling into or around San Francisco, which is a quick trip across the bay.

Yesterday evening we drove into the Haight and Ashbury district (these are also two actual streets that intersect) for dinner and walking around. This is a very progressive/hippy kind of area of town and I loved it. Plenty of consignment and second hand shops and 3 piece bands playing on corners or outside music stores. And then obviously beautiful architecture and apartments, like everywhere else in San Francisco.

My friend in TN had told me about a store called Buffalo Exchange, and so when we walked by one here I had to check it out. Despite the cashier saying they were closed :/ I pleaded like any good (or bad?) shopper would do, to just look at the jewelry and scarves real quick! I picked this one out in under two minutes and paid. Or maybe it was under 5 min. I really was quick I swear! 🙂 Wish I’d had more time to check out the statement necklaces cause they had some good ones!

This scarf will do, for sure.

I wore it at dinner immediately after I bought it, with a shirt I also bought last night at a vintage store. And I put it on again this morning to walk down lakeshore blvd.

I don’t live in an area where I can walk outside my house to a street of shops, restaurants and coffee shops, so when I am somewhere that is like that I like to take advantage. Three other mornings I have gone for a run, also amazing:) but today I decided to take a stroll for coffee and donuts to bring back.

Sweets are my WEAKNESS!!

Anyway, I threw my scarf on with this bright green short puff sleeve old navy blouse I recently got at goodwill for $2.15, and off I went.

Nice and bright colors for the morning walk. Why not. Wake people up as they pass by:). I’ll consider it my civic duty for the day. You’re welcome people.

Do you enjoy a good donut as much as me?

Why are they soo good???

    Donuts are the very best! I can’t pass them up. And the Buffalo Exchange is my absolute favorite store. Too bad there isn’t one in Nashville – which there should be, by the way. 😉

      There should be…it’s kind of like a plates closet tho? I thought my friend who told me about it was saying there was one in Nash? But maybe not. She’s from Cali so maybe she was just saying I’d like it, which is correct:)
