While we unabashedly adore show-stopping garb, there’s something about minimalist, fuss-free fashion that can drive us just as wild. Sure, our bauble-loving hearts desire a daring statement piece or two, but we have a serious soft spot for classic staples, too. And no one does streamlined style (think structured satchels, crisp blouses, and tailored trousers) quite like S.F.’s own resident stylephile, Annabel Ly of Blushing Ambition. Her fun-loving blog is all about gallivanting ‘round town whilst sporting touted brands and chowing down at much-loved eateries. Food and fashion? Sounds like a stellar combo to us. So, we hit up the sleek-and-chic blogger to give us a personal walking tour of her hot Lower Haight ‘hood. That's right, she showed us some of her favorite shops and restos, and, of course, played dress-up all the while.
