Whenever possible, I prefer to walk to get where I’m going; I just generally find it to be the most pleasurable way to get from point A to point B (in most cases). So when I moved to San Francisco, I found that careful planning of all walks was imperative to avoid unexpectedly walking up hills that are basically vertical faces, in both directions. I’ve started figuring out where the real beasts are (and luckily my neighborhood is pretty flat, at least by SF standards), and I’m able to avoid them when I want – but I’ve also learned something else: bigger hills=awesome views. Tradeoffs.
The growing numbers of terry/sweatshirt/jersey options on fashionable shelves is really challenging my self-control when it comes to shopping; I just can’t seem to get enough of the comfortable stuff. I’ve been living in this terry cardigan since I got it and honestly don’t plan on taking it off anytime soon, since it somehow seems to work just as well over PJs as it does out and about. Hopefully it’ll satiate the comfortable addiction, for at least a little while.
You know that item of clothing you’ve been hunting for for years? You’ve got the image in your mind, and you come across countless pieces that are almost it, but not quite? I’ve been looking for the perfect pair of skinny cargo pants since approximately 2007, and I’m proud to say that I’ve finally found them. I had some key requirements – they needed to be the perfect shade of olive green, have a skinny yet comfy fit, be made of a super-soft cotton and have details, but not too much superfluous BS (don’t you hate it when there’s some random rhinestones or a stupid emblem?). While I didn’t think that was too much to ask, apparently it was, at least for a while – so I’m happy to say that I’ve found my perfect pair, finally.
Things have been mighty stormy and dreary around here as of late, and I’ve been feeling a bit uninspired when it comes to style, so I turned to a little blue and green to blend into the landscape. Here’s hoping the golden days of summer return soon!
