It's cold out there, somewhere, but that's certainly not the problem in San Francisco this winter. Throughout the hills, valleys, and thickets of the city, warmer temperatures have been luring locals outside for weeks. On Sundays, the combination of sunshine and dozens of gourmet food trucks is too tempting for mere mortals to resist.

Racked joined the rest of the Marina crowd at Off the Grid's Picnic in the Presidio to catch some rays and scan the masses for style standouts. Sure, there were lots of striped dresses and yoga pants, but our team also spotted some original looks on the Main Post Lawn. Check out our favorites, and start planning your next sunny day ensemble.
