Irish Coffee Created in San Francisco and Dancing on Lombard Street

Hello again! I’m blogging from San Francisco on a fun StitchFix trip. Follow along at #StitchFixLunaVacay on Instagram for the randomness.

After breakfast and yoga we headed to the Stitch Fix Headquarters to check out their latest fashions.

I spotted a few pieces I would totally keep in my ‘Fix! I love massive purses and this big blue one is vegan leather – awesome, right?!

The StitchFix planning fashion board. It’s like Pinterest, but real life.

And the sample room… this room has one of each item that’s out in the fixes right now.

Also, a stick necklace. I don’t know why, but I dig it!

We had a picnic in the park for lunch. It’s a gorgeous day in San Francisco, but still cold for me.

The SF girls realized I was cold and let me borrow this denim jacket from the samples closet. The only problem is I can’t act like a non-weirdo. Oh well.

After lunch we went on a scavenger hunt adventure!!! Stitch Fix and Luna joined forces to host this event and challenged us to complete six awesome tasks around the city!

This was the best way to explore the city! We hit up the Golden Gate Bridge, Presidio, Palace of the Fine Arts, Lombard, Buena Vista and Ghirardelli Square!! Hello – all the best of San Francisco!!

I can’t even decide what my favorite part of the day was – it was the best.

    I love this post and I love SF and Stitch Fix. Have you run any of the hills since you’ve been there?

    Ahahaha, welcome to my city! It was gorgeous over the weekend and cold cold this week. Welcome to SF summers :) Glad you guys are having a blast and LOVE the lady that joined you dancing on Lombard. She knows a good time when she sees one!

  6. says

    Oh my gooses, I want all of those purses! <3 What a fun time!

    I have never done a scavenger hunt, other than when I was a child. I'm sure it's much more fun as an adult, seeing as how you can go anywhere, and drink. Surely an Irish coffee makes it even more fun. Hehe!

  7. says

    Sounds like you had an AWESOME adventure day in SF :) I would have not been able to leave that sample room! Lol!

    There’s an old restaurant just down the street from my parent’s house. It’s run by an adorable old man and his wife. After dinner, we sat at the bar and chatted with him for hours (we were literally the only people in the place). He crafted us Irish Coffees can told us the story of the first Irish Coffee in San Francisco. It was an amazing evening filled with fascinating stories (and delicious food and drink)

    We do a running scavenger hunt first thursday each month. You run certain distances to collect raffle tix. The further you run, the more tix you get. You get an hour… so the farther out and back is 5 miles. Looks like you’re having a blast (as always) !

    Stitch Fix closet looks like my paradise! You lucky girl! I”ve been meaning to try it for awhile, but I think it’s about time I finally did! I’m OBSESSED with those stick necklaces, so dainty and different!

    You’re also inspiring me to visit SF!

    Scavenger hunts are the MOST fun. My friends and I used to invent silly grown-up scavenger hunts for road trips in colllege with clues like: “consume bacon with every meal,” “convince a bartender to name a drink after you,” or “lead a sing-a-long of ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ on public transit.”

    I never knew Irish coffees were invented in SF. That’s awesome! One more reason why the Bay Area is the greatest!

    I think everyone needs a girlfriend like you, Monica. You just seem to bring the fun wherever you go! I don’t think people could be sad or negative around you for too long.

    I loved this visit you had I got to see San Francisco through your eyes! never been to California, and a intro to Stich Fix and Luna. Girl Keep it up!!!

    Ugh. I wish Stitch Fix would stop their promoting by sending bloggers on sponsored trips and/or sending them boxes of clothes. Nothing against your blog. I love your blog. I’m just getting tired of reading about Stitch Fix all the time. And the clothes never look that great. Bloggers, please stop letting Stitch Fix buy you clothes so you feature them on your blog!
