Now that I’m a costal gal, I can definitely feel the ocean’s influence on my style. The rumours about northern California’s cool Pacific breezes are a true story. It’s a bit too nippy for sundresses, shorts and the other staples of my traditional summer wardrobe, so lightweight tunics are a nice option in this climate – warm, but not too bulky. Meanwhile, the cuffed jeans paired with sandals help me feel like I’m not missing summer altogether.
I’m also feeling the ocean-esque colours. There’s been a lot of aqua happening since we arrived in the Bay Area. This scarf kind of reminds me of the beach, with its bands of turquoise, beige and green.
This may not be the warmest summer of my life, but there sure is a lot of sunshine. San Fran’s bay area has a reputation for fog, but every morning the grey blows away and we’re left with bright, blue skies for the rest of the day.
When I saw this last picture I had to laugh. I am clearly having a Sally-moment here!
