Hello! 

Today is the first day of fall so I thought it would be appropriate to feature a fall outfit :-). The struggle to take these photos were real as I kept slipping on the rocks – they’re higher than they look! For this outfit, I wanted to layer for SF’s ever-changing weather; I donned a simple striped tee, blue jeans, and added a pop of black color (lol) with my black booties and a trench coat. As always, this was shot in Golden Gate Park outside the De Young Museum – after 4 years of Flying Neon Lights, Amanda and I are realizing that this place offers limitless spaces to photograph. Stay tuned for more posts in our favorite area! Anyway, wishing you a fantastic weekend. Happy Friday! 

Cheers,

Tiffany

April Highlights

Didn’t get to go to Coachella, but had a great month of April. I compiled a bunch of highlights from my short stay at home in San Francisco as well as adventures around Los Angeles. My definition of fun is somewhat lame because I basically just visit coffee shops and eat 24/7. I did end up driving north to Antelope Valley Poppy Reserve where I saw stretches of poppies in full bloom. I picked up a couple vintage items at Melrose Trading Post as well. Location descriptions are in the video. It’s my first time doing this type of video, so let me know if you like it. Have a great beginning of May!

Bell Sleeves + Florals

img_2237img_2254img_2234Kate Spade bag, Banana Republic boots, F21 skirt, tights, coat

Decided to bust out this understated floral piece (with oversized bell sleeves!) when visiting a rooftop garden in downtown San Francisco. I love strolling around the city when the seasons are in transition, as the air is cold and crisp but there’s a hint of spring. I dressed down this look by wearing tights and brown boots. Threw on my black coat for warmth, and I was ready to enjoy the views of downtown SF. Thanks for visiting and hope you’d enjoyed this outfit!

Trench Weather

Trench (Forever 21), flannel and scarf (H&M), jeans (Levi’s), boots (ASOS) 

 Hey all!

This week’s outfit was shot at Fort Point in San Francisco, an old military base during the Civil War era. To me and Amanda, Fort Point is also notorious for being incredibly cold and windy (well, to us San Franciscans it feels chilly). I tried to prepare for the inevitable by layering my thick trench coat over my flannel and topped it off with a heavy scarf. I covered my entire lower body by wearing jeans, fuzzy socks (not shown), and my go-to boots. Little did I know, I should’ve added another 3 layers because the wind and cold tore right through my outfit. Ugh, I’ll keep that in mind next time. Thanks for visiting ya’ll! 🙂

Best,

Tiffany 

 

On Repeat

img_1994img_1965img_1972Nike sneakers, ASOS jeans & cap, Zara bomber jacket, H&M black blouse, Aeropostale sweatshirt, backpack (Amazon)

Perhaps my favorite items meshed into one outfit. I’ve been living in this Zara bomber since the day of purchase, and have worn my boyfriend jeans their fair share as well. Althleisure has been my favorite fashion trend as of yet, so I popped on my sneakers and a cap for a day of exploration at San Francisco’s Lovers Lane. Not to forget, happy 2017 everyone! Thank you for continuing our journey with us on Flying Neon Lights. We truly appreciate your support.

Love,

Ode to San Francisco: 1st video!

After three years of blogging, we finally have Flying Neon Lights’s first official video! Both of us have mulled for the longest time about posting vlogs/ videos on the blog. Well, we finally pulled the trigger and compiled footage of our favorite San Francisco places when our friend, Nancy, was visiting. This video is an ode to SF, our hometown and favorite city. We have featured our most frequented locations, which includes Turtle Hill, Sutro Baths, Golden Gate Park, Downtown SF, Clarion Alley, Fort Point, Lovers Lane, and Palace of Fine Arts. Click the video above and let us know your thoughts! We’re still shaky on our camerawork but we’ll attempt to improve in our next videos featuring Los Angeles and Maui. Thanks for visiting!

Love,

Amanda and Tiffany

Post-Fall Fall Post

Hey everyone! 

Weather in San Francisco has always been pretty strange; hence this post’s title. This fall foliage happened well into the winter season, but it is never too late to take fall photos! Amanda and I shot this post at the Japanese Tea Garden in San Francisco; the fall colors were gorgeous and perfect for my warm layered outfit. I layered my hefty denim jacket over my grey hoodie and added a printed scarf to keep me warm. I balanced these colors with black jeans and black chelsea boots, and threw on a brown knapsack to hold my valuables. For those of you that have been following us, you probably know that this is not the first time we shot in Japanese Tea Garden. However, it is the first time we saw so much beautiful fall foliage there. Pictures don’t do it justice, but we tried!

Have a wonderful week,

Tiffany

Anti-Social Social Club

Hello all! 

This week features an outfit very fitting for foggy San Francisco! Walking around the city can be very tiring and sometimes painful, and these ASICS I recently bought are the perfect solution! We went rooftop hunting in the Financial District, and managed to see some spectacular views. (see last year’s post on this here) Today I wore a lace-up top (so into those right now) and paired them with dark blue jeans. I continued the comfortable and somewhat minimal theme with a black bomber and threw on a cap (courtesy of Rizky!). If ya’ll ever have time in San Francisco, be sure to check out some rooftop gardens, sometimes with views as high as 15 floors up. I’d be happy to provide a list 😉 Thanks for reading!

Love,

Tiffany 

3rd Anniversary

We both can’t believe it has been three years since the start of Flying Neon Lights. This blog has pushed us to experiment with crazy outfits, explore new places, and ultimately push us to exceed our comfort zones. Thank you for stopping by every week to check out our little corner of the web. We promise to continue improving our content in the future. Happy 3rd Anniversary, Flying Neon Lights!

Love,

Tiffany and Amanda

In the meantime, we’ll celebrate with our favorite looks and adventures from this year.

Fall Uniform

img_0337img_0373img_0340

ASOS jeans,bag, brogues, Banana Republic belt, Gap hat, Van Heusen top, Forever 21 jacket

Over the years, I’ve become dependent on certain items for the times I am unable to connote up an outfit. My fedora not only keeps me warm from incoming winter drafts, but also shields sun out of my face during this Fall period of transition. These boyfriend jeans, which I’d bought last year as a impulse buy, have served me well in both the LA heat and SF fog. Finally, I finished the outfit with a chiffon top and brogues which transition well from the workplace to everyday wear.

Tiffany and I shot these photos while rooftop hunting in San Francisco. This background is one of the many views showcased on top of SF’s financial buildings. Let me know if you want the location details!
