This blog was first started by my roommate, M, and I. We wanted to share our love of food and my obsession with clothes and shoes with others who shared the same passions. Sadly, we’ve come to realize that M was too busy to post regularly, and it quickly became clear that the blog was becoming mine.
After a few weeks of being a newbie blogger, I’ve got to say, it’s been really fun. My boyfriend and I have been having such a great time finding spots in the city to shoot outfit posts and it’s really given us a fun excuse to go out and explore and take in San Francisco. Helping me with the photography started out as a favor to me, but he says he really looks forward to them now! Who knew something so simple as starting a blog could lead to such new discoveries! So, continue following me on my blogging journeys at http://www.thegirlon23rd.blogspot.com.

It feels like summer’s already here in San Francisco. This past weekend has been nothing but blue skies and a touch of heat, and it looks like the heat is hanging around for a bit. Which means I’ll be throwing on my keep cool basics for a while; white pants and a bright shirt.
Have a great week!
These past few days have been deliciously gluttonous. My wonderful boyfriend, Cole (who took these amazing photos, btw), landed an art directing internship at Butler Shine Stern & Partners in Sausalito! So, to kick off the weekend, I made caramels using this recipe. I’ve got to say, they were worth the extra effort. The flavors were richer than store bought and I intend on making them again.
To continue the celebration, we made reservations for brunch at Magic Flute Risorante. We’d been there for dinner before but didn’t think it was very special. But since they were voted the #1 Best place for brunch in San Francisco, we were curious to see if they lived up to the hype. They did. If you’re in the San Francisco area I highly suggest you take a break and go have some brunch.
We stopped by a park on the way home and snapped up a few pictures of an absolutely gorgeous day.
