MEMORIAL DAY IN CARMEL

CROPPED OVER SILK CAMI

Last weekend was spent in beautiful Carmel, Monterey and Big Sur. Not knowing exactly what plans were in store, I packed just enough clothes to get by for different occasions while utilizing layering as a key component. One thing that's always on my travel packing list are silk camisoles because they're comfortable as an under-piece, perfect to layer under crop tops, and also great to wear independently for a more formal look. These particular photos were taken after grabbing lunch at Carmel-by-the-Sea, and also right before I rolled my ankle and sprained it real bad on the way to McWay Falls in Big Sur. My ankle turned cankle for sure. Although this unfortunate incident resulted in me not being able to walk all week, the weekend getaway was still manageably just as fun thanks to my boyfriend who was willing to piggyback ride me everywhere until I got a hold of some crutches. What a Memorial Day weekend to remember.

EVERYDAY PLAID

CLASSIC COMFORT IN AUSTIN

It's interesting how different climates and cities really alter your wardrobe preferences. Living in San Francisco for quite some time now my style has shifted to more comfortable everyday wear that can easily adapt in different conditions (work to happy hour to dinner...). I visited Austin last weekend to compete in Tough Mudder (badass photo here) and with the recent adjustments to my attire, my typical San Francisco wear was very appropriate for walking and exploring the city of Austin. I spent one morning walking south first street to eat at Torchy's Taco and to admire storefront signs, and this plaid shirt that I've grown to love due to its breathability and color combination transferred almost too perfectly from SF wear to Austin wear. While I miss wearing heels, skirts and flaunting chic looks, comfort definitely wins especially when traveling.
