I hope you all had a safe, joyous, and loving Thanksgiving! One childhood holiday memory that always makes me smile is the family sitting around the table after dinner looking at the paper. We would make our plan of attack for Black Friday. Who would make the run for the televisions? Who would get the lawn furniture? Which refrigerator or washer and dryer would mom get this year? What stores had the latest boot style on sale? It was all so invigorating.
A lot of people think San Francisco Bay Area is all hipsters who drink too much tea and sit around playing guitar. There are definitely a lot of those people, but SF style is more than that. It is driven by this stereotype and beyond.
“Midwest kindness” is definitely an active term on the East and West Coast. I moved to the West Coast three years ago, and I quickly learned that these people live a bit differently. Everyone has somewhere to go, and no one will stop them from getting there. It sounds a bit intimidating, but once you get into the swing of things, it turns into adrenaline.
I am usually not a white denim person. It is such a bold material, and if it’s not used correctly it can ruin an entire look. Here are a few ways to wear those white skinny jeans or old white denim jacket that has been collecting dust in your closet.
Never be afraid to venture to other departments while shopping. Sometimes I can’t find exactly what I’m looking for, so I search the men’s or plus size section. This button down mini is a 1X and lightly sewn to fit my body better.
I am finally back in San Francisco. As much as I loved seeing my family, being in the middle of nowhere makes your brain go numb. Baker Beach is definitely a spot that I will race to on my down time.
Wind is either a nuisance or a welcomed addition while you are on set. During my blog photoshoots, there is only me and the photographer. We do not have help setting up the shot, and it is all organic. The wind was a bit strong, but it captured the raw beauty of this place.
