look book: sausalito

September 27, 2010


While Matthew and I were in San Francisco we went to Sausalito for the afternoon. Sausalito is such a cute little town across the Golden Gate Bridge. It was a cloudy and overcast day but it was beautiful seeing San Francisco right across the water. I wore these adorable shorts from Style by Marina that have these awesome side pockets that I could hide things in!

How was your weekend? It's slightly sad to say and admit but 90% of mine was spent in front of a computer screen..and I wasn't blogging {ugh}!! Searching for an affordable venue for next year has been soo time consuming..and frustrating! But more about on Wednesday. Hopefully things will be making more sense by then. Crossing my fingers.

And before I forget. The winner of the tminx Zodiac t-shirt is Felicity! Congrats girl! {Email me your info!} Stay tuned for another fun giveaway later this week!

P.S. Does anyone understand the new editor on Blogger? I'm having the hardest time adjusting my pictures. The Extra Large is too big and the Large is too small. eek any advice/tips would be SO appreciated!

  5. You guys look great! Love the photos! And I love that coat!

  6. Love the pictures!

    Okay, here's what I do with pictures. First I choose the "Extra Large" option, then I go into html mode and resize it down to 540 (width). I believe your layout supports pics up to this width, as mine does, so that should work.

  7. Yeah you have to go into html. PAIN!!!!

  9. I love this outfit, thoe shorts are devine!

    We am having our wedding on a Sunday. We didn't choose a Sunday because it is cheaper, but it turns out Sunday's are cheaper! In Australia (I'm not sure about elsewhere), most venues are half the price of a Saturday booking. We landed ourselves a great bargain because the restaurant we're having our reception at isn't open on a Sunday normally, so they don't have a price to reflect what they would normally make that day. Might be something worth looking into? Good luck!

  10. The shorts are adorable! And what a beautiful spot!

    As for advice - I normally resize my pictures to the size I want before I upload them to photobucket, then just click 'original size' on blogger! A little more complicated but always works :)

  11. Sausalito is one of the best places I've been to. First would be Santorini, next would be Tahoe. Sausalito is climbing the charts :)

  12. you wear things so well that would probably not be pulled off by most people.

  13. That shirt is so adorable Mara! Love the pictures in this set. Sausalito is gorgeous, I've been there once before but wish I could remember more of it. I think I only stopped for breakfast! Can't wait to hear more about the wedding plans!

  16. When you find an easy way to explain the new editor please share ... one of the main reasons why I haven't changed my photo settings is because the large photo setting is just too big. Any who ... love these photos and your outfit. Sausalito is such a cute town ... and just a bit down the way is one of my favorite hikes. Hugs my friend!! Oh and don't you worry the right venue will come along ... Marc and I actually switched venues two months in and everything worked out!!! XO

  21. Rocking it!! Sausalito was one of my faves visits when I came to the Bay Area!!!

  22. I totally know how you feel. but i'm sure what you show matthew and go over what kind of feel you want to have, budget, # of guests, that will help you narrow down your search. you will pretty much know what you are looking for.

    as far as the new blogger, I have no idea. I'm just going with the flow for now. i hope someone can give you an answer.

    love your shorts in these photos! I spent my weekend making dress patterns(yup, I started The Collections!)

  23. sausalito is such a cute town. i like spending all day there eating and going in cute shops. also, i love you outfit (like always).

    i don't really mess with blogger's sizing because it isn't always the same (and i'm so anal, i MUST have all pictures the same width). so i adjust them all to the width i want in photoshop, then upload them to my own server and use the url of each picture when i add them to my blog, that way they won't be resized.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Adorable! I especially love the photo of the two of you!
    And I'm so happy you asked about the photos... I was having the same issue!

    ReplyDelete
  25. And so the planning begins ;o) Don't forget to just soak this beautiful time in! Don't get too caught up on all the wedding day stress. As long as you and Matthew make it to an alter, that's all that matters in the end :)

  26. Aww It looks beautiful. I really wanted to see Sausalito when we visited Sf but there wasn't enough time:( I heard it's so gorgeous!
    Love your shorts... they are the coolest pair I've seen in a while.

  30. About the editor: I'm with you there girl, it is so so so frustrating - and I'm not computer literate enough to change the picture size myself! So annoying! Sounds you had a busy weekend - looking forward to hearing all about it on weds <3
    Much love xxx

  31. Why are you not a stylist? You always come up with the cutest outfits!

    ReplyDelete
  32. um, hi, cutest outfit ever!

    have you ever shared what hair products you use? id be interested. your hair always looks so healthy.

    i also just got engaged and the venue route is daunting, so we are going to get married at a family members private residence.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Good luck with venue hunting! I have been loving your engagement story by the way; you guys are very sweet. I use photobucket for all my photos and I love it!

  34. You look so adorable and beautiful in everything, Mara! I absolutely fell in love with Sausalito when I went there a couple years ago...such a beautiful place, as is San Fran! :)

  36. I think I do the medium size pictures on blogger. I definitely have had a hard time with the pictures not working well in the new editor, but it's nice to upload all of them at once. You know, I kind of love those shorts. I don't know if I would wear them, but I'm glad that you have them. They kind of remind me of an anthropologist's pants of way back when.

  37. Love Sausalito, it's so romantic. I cant wait to visit with my bf! I think the trick to the blogger is finding the original size? I just put mine in from flickr, which also had a kooky revamping

    ReplyDelete
  38. oh i love sausalito - this post reminded me that i seriously need to go more often!!

    ReplyDelete
  39. ps: does this mean you've set a date already?!

  40. my roomate has a shirt with pockets like those and it's awesome. sometimes i want to borrow it :)

    AND the blogger picture sizes are totally weird now ... i was having the same problems

    ReplyDelete
  41. great ensemble you put together, it looks so sophisticated at the same time, so easy to wear <3

    ReplyDelete
  42. You always have fantastic hair!!! Love it!
    and I agree with the picture sizes being weird now...

  43. Hi there! I just found your blog and you are such a pretty lady! I also love that green bangle you have on. I am having issues as well with Blogger's new picture uploader. I hope they'll simplfy it soon!

    PS. I wanted to let you know that I'm hosting a giveaway right now for a $50 giftcard to Anthropologie! I didn't want you to miss out on it. :)
