The best part about living in Los Angeles, in addition to being in this bustling and diverse sprawl of a city, is having Santa Barbara, San Diego, Palm Springs and Las Vegas all within driving distance. San Francisco, however, is always on the top of my getaway list, although it's more than a few hours drive away. An impromptu road trip up north allowed me to seize the opportunity to visit some of my favorite destinations in the Bay, namely the

Golden Gate Bridge

. Nothing beats the majestic, golden hues that casts over this manmade monument.

As some of you know, SF climate can be rather unpredictable. Layering with a light hoodie under my outerwear obsession, a moto-inspired, leather jacket, was essential to keeping warm. In doing so, it also created a quasi-jumpsuit effect that seamlessly blended in with my hybrid trousers from

Post Bellum

(another clothing obsession of mine). The trick to looking stylish can be as easy and simple as having one or two versatile pieces in your repertoire.

To give you a jumpstart, I've partnered up with
