What to wear on Sunday morning

As much as I love getting dressed up, I fully embrace dressing down. Of course, San Francisco is a very casual town, so dressed-down to me is like normal for a lot of people. Still, it's kind of a fun challenge to see if you can make something incredibly low-key look interesting. So in the interest of blending in with the natives, I threw on a sweatshirt, jeans, and Birkenstocks (yes, Birkenstocks) for a Sunday-morning walk through the Presidio, the gorgeous national park that's a mere seven blocks from my apartment.

This sweatshirt was a Nordstrom Anniversary Sale find (and it's still on sale) and, more importantly, it's by Sincerely Jules, a blogger I've followed for ages and still one of my favorites to this day. (Not only does she have her own clothing line, but while nearly every fashion blogger was out hustling at New York Fashion Week, she was relaxing at at the Four Seasons Bora Bora, and that's why she's winning at life.) This sweatshirt runs a bit small (I'm in a medium), but it's really nice quality, and I love the lacing detail on the side.

These jeans are the straight skinny fit in Re/Done Levi's, which you've probably seen on Kendall Jenner and every other model and/or social media superstar; I finally caved and bought a pair after having tried on approximately 800 vintage Levi's, all of which looked like actual mom jeans on me, i.e. FUPA and peg legs, not a good look. Re/Done jeans are true vintage but re-tailored for a more precise fit, and I think they're worth every penny (ok, yes, we're talking a lot of pennies). Lucky for you, dear Cheryl Shops readers, you can take 20% off your purchase, which should lessen the pinch.

A big but not-too-big bucket bag is great for being out and about. I've had this Mansur Gavriel one for a little over three years, and I still love it—I don't like a lot of bells and whistles on my bags. The leather on this one has developed a nice patina, and I like that it's a little roughed up. One thing to note: I have a freakishly short torso, so I had more holes added to the strap so I could shorten it. I'd recommend doing the same if your shoulder bag is giving you lower-back pain. (Ahh, aging!)

Of course, I can't not accessorize, so I doubled down on millennial pink with these fun tassel earrings...ok, tripled down with my pink sunglasses too (if you haven't guessed by now, they're a favorite pair). Can you wear millennial pink when you're a Generation X-er? I don't see why not...
