I have found myself asking whether or not it is a coincidence that the one week we come to Cali, the drought suddenly ends and we get three consecutive days of near-flooding. To be honest this week has been more turbulent than the skies- in a somewhat beautiful, adventurous kind of way. This was supposed to be my first independent travel and it sure does feel independent at times. I’ve forgotten my wallet, missed trains, ordered overpriced taxis, gotten lost and spent more time disorientated than orientated. And it’s been amazing.
With Cali’s crazy weather turn I’ve finally been able to bust out those layers I packed. And had the time to perfect the science of the turtleneck-hair-tuck. It’s an art, no? Speaking of art forms- it’s hard to layer without being lumpy. It really is. My suggestion? If you’re wearing something high-waisted, (which, more often than not, I am) don’t tuck in- go cropped. Cropped sweaters, tees, blouses… then layer your coat or jacket over the top. Another option is to go a little off-centre and do the longer/shorter layer thing… think a button-down shirt left untucked, under a cropped sweater, paired with cuffed trousers and oxfords. It’s very Vogue.
Well I’m off to San Fran tomorrow and haven’t packed a thing. Excited for more adventure, though, and will be back very soon with more embarrassing stories. Much love xo
