Since moving to San Francisco, I have become a weather wimp. Like, if it dips below 60° I’m cold. If it goes above 68° I’m hot. So basically, there is an 8° window when I’m just fine. Luckily, that’s most days here, but since moving to Potrero Hill, we get more sunny warm days than any other part of the city. So if you’re coming to SF for vacation and don’t want to see fog, well, we don’t have any hotels, but I’m sure you can AirBnB a place here.
Anyway! Let’s see, summer.
When it gets hot, the thing is, I hate wearing anything constricting. Anything complicated. Or basically anything at all. I would wear a muumuu if it were socially acceptable. And hey, maybe I will anyway! But on hot days like we had yesterday, I find wearing a shirt dress is the best thing. I’ve tried to wear those white shirtdresses, but most of them are basically see-through, and well, I’m not Rihanna or Cher. But a lightweight denim shirtdress is always great to have on hand. You can just throw it on. Wear it with sandals, flats, heck, even dress it up with a pair of heels. You can belt it up, but most of the time I wear a crossbody handbag because it’s convenient and also *I think* it gives the shirt dress a bit of shape. Even if it really doesn’t do anything to show off my actual shape. It’s a mental thing. Anyway, I paired this dress with a pair of sandals and crossbody handbag, along with a statement cuff to make it an “outfit.” And when I get home, take off all the accessories, and wella! I can lounge around the house in this thing because it’s so comfortable. Now, that’s a double duty dress!
