Memo 169: Bundled Up

On my recent visit to San Francisco, I read a list online about all the things that you should not do while you’re visiting. Of course, I wanted to window shop but the list told me NOT to go to Union Square. Instead, it said to browse the boutiques in Hayes Valley and that’s just what I did!


Albeit, the boutiques were super cute and unique, I was, however, in San Fran right after Christmas and the person that I was with (read: my mom) wanted to experience a little bit more holiday cheer. Do you know where they had the holiday cheer? At Union Square. I will definitely return to Hayes Valley hopefully during an end of the season sale and a warmer less breezy day. Count on that!


Yeah, so about that breeze. I wasn’t ready for it.  I hear 56 degrees Fahrenheit and it really doesn’t translate. Living in Arizona has completely thrown off my weather barometer. I thought that this look would be appropriate for 56 degrees of coolness and I would have been right if not for the wind. See, that wind is a completely different beast.

Note to self: Stay Inside.

    Hayes Valley is the place to be. I got my first dose of Cali life there. I did some research and the online folks definitely were on point about that place. I will be going back. I left some stones unturned lol. I conquer the city as a solo travaler. Wonderful memories.
