Style + Design
Like it or not, jelly sandals are back in a big way this summer. Luckily our statement shoe of choice in elementary school has grown up a bit since the playground days, revamped by a few of our favorite designers. Despite our love for nostalgia, we've been hesitant to embrace this trend as of yet but now we're dying to scoop up a pair in every color. After all, the flip-flop's edgier cousin looks equally as fresh for day or night. Check out some of our favorite finds:

It's official, Pride is in the air. Something about the combination of giant rainbow flags waving down Market Street and the warm summer air is bringing out the best of San Franciscan's wardrobes, which has us perpetually thinking about what on earth we're going to wear to the Pride festivities this weekend. After a bit of deliberation, we opted for an outfit that's a bit more discreet than gold sequins and feather boas, yet still exudes a carefree vibrance that is the nature of such an SF institution.
