I am writing this post from San Francisco...Chicago, you know I love you, but man oh man am I considering a permanent relocation. Everything here is painted pastel colors. And there are clouds in the streets. And there are colorful fire escapes on every other building. And there is ocean in every direction. And there are street cars that look like post cards. And everybody wears denim jackets really successfully. Sigh....

I once promised myself I'd never wear these shorts without tights - I guess I should know better than to ever say never by now.

This outfit is a combination of all my daily hot day choices. 

A tissue thin tank
+ short, wide, enormous shorts
+ a sock bun
+ strappy sandals
+a swipe of blush

I never noticed that I like racerback silhouettes til this year - I actually never noticed that it was much different from a regular back.

Belt: here
Shorts: here
Sandals: here
Bracelet: here
Sunglasses: here

Tomorrow I leave SF and head to LA.
Sending all my California love, friends.

Those shorts are so pretty, I love the detailing close-up.

San-Francisco (and Chicago) are definitely high on my list of places to visit in the near future. I'm think ing of doing a trip on my own possibly in the Autumn, is it an ok place for a female travelling on her own?

Oh, Such a Primadonna
