How to Rock Local Gear at Outside Lands

What to Wear to Oustide Lands

San Francisco’s music event of the summer is here: Outside Lands is bringing awesome bands, performers and local food vendors to Golden Gate Park this weekend. Why not show off the best the city has to offer with a killer outfit built from locally-designed pieces?

Ladies, try staying warm in a cozy Micaela Greg sweater. Let your jewelry be fun and functional with a map necklace to keep you from getting lost and a watch to make sure you see your favorite sets on time. Gentlemen, take in the tunes in mocs from Taylor Stitch and keep the fog at bay with a jacket from local denim maker Tellason.

Check our list below to find the goods pictured above. Need something else for San Francisco’s (colder and foggier) version of Coachella? Head to BeGood Clothing, who’ll be hosting an Outside Lands sale on all the new shop’s festival-worthy gear.

Two Timin’: Jeffrey Campbell for Convert Back with 2nd Collection

Grape Expectations: City Style for Wine Country Jaunts

If there’s one thing we love in the fall, it’s a trip to California wine country. But what to wear? There’s something about swirling treats from the vine in pristine Napa and Sonoma wineries that makes us want to dress up a little from our day-to-day, but without sacrificing our casual San Francisco style.

Spotted and Loved: Miz Mooz Francesca Boot

To say that we dig the Miz Mooz Francesca Boot available at Super Shoe Biz in the Upper Haight is a little like saying we tend to enjoy breathing on occasion (like, you know, every other Tuesday). It just doesn’t get the point across. Simple translation: we love these shoes.

If our feet were independent beings that went on vacation without us, we’re pretty sure we’d find them hanging out at the bottom of these boots designed by the New York-based company best known for its round-toed boots and pumps.

We love the strappy straps, the textured shaft (get your mind out of the gutter) and the wooden wedge heels, a detail that always leaves us smitten. And while we’re never ones to embrace the neutral side of life, the cream hue is one we’d happily don with any shade – and even use to pull off the black brown combos we’ve been oddly drawn to lately.

Suddenly, we find ourselves applauding the summer fog we know is just a few months off. We love a town where new boots just in time for summer sounds like a solid, practical shopping decision.

Sponsor Love: YesStyle.com Lace-Back Hightop Sneakers

yesstyle_lace_hightop_sneakers1

We’ve been having a little love affair with brown and black recently, so it was only logical for us to jump on (or should be say into) this pair of Laced Back Hightop Sneakers from SF Indie Fashion sponsor YesStyle.com. The leather keeps these kicks looking slick, while the fold-down construction on the hightops lets us show that we’re mad for plaid when we feel like it and keep the black and white patterned interiors to ourselves when we don’t. Sure, lacing up in back comes with a little learning curve all its own, but then, we’re always up for a challenge.
