One thing I’ve been trying to do this summer is discover new places in the city since we aren’t traveling. I’m so excited about the new shop that opened in San Francisco – Modern Citizen (if you don’t live in the Bay Area don’t fret, their online shop is amazing!). I went last week and wanted nearly everything in the shop. I ended up with three tops – a black mock turtleneck with flared sleeved, a sweatshirt with an open back, and a sleeveless white ruffled blouse. I honestly could have purchased so much more! I love the clean line, monochromatic neutral colors, and the prices just can’t be beat.
They also have a well-curated selection of home items that will knock your socks off! I think this will be a wildly successful company and I am so thrilled they have opened in San Francisco.
You can find the new Modern Citizen shop nestled in the Marina. Add it to your weekend to-do list!
2070 Union Street
Open 9 – 5 PM
On June 5th, our family grew with the addition of our sweet Amelia. It feels as if she has always been with us – we are all so happy she is here! Jackson has shown his tender and loving side and showers her with kisses (and much to our chagrin, licks!) and tries to comfort her when she is crying.
Amelia looks so much like Jackson did when he was this age (see resemblance here) but her personality seems different. I can already see the difference between having a boy and a girl! She has been such an easy baby (knock on wood) – something I wasn’t expecting but have happily embraced. It probably feels easier due to the fact that she breastfed immediately, something I struggled with with Jackson. Its amazing how fast they grow. There are moments when I can’t believe she’s already a month old. We are trying to enjoy every minute, as we know this time passes so quickly. My days were definitely spent on the sofa gazing into Amelia’s eyes!
Thanks for being understanding with my absences on posting. It was a treat taking a little quality time off to take in this transition to a family of four. To everyone that has been sending their sweet comments on instagram – thank you!
I’ve got some great posts in the making – new SF finds, tabletop inspiration, interior projects to share and much more!
