What’s that, you say? You now have a fabulous song stuck in your head and are never going to forgive me? Well, I do apologize (but clearly not enough, since I’m keeping this post title as is).
If you’re ever in San Francisco, I highly recommend walking up and down Jackson and Pacific in Pacific Heights. So many different parts of San Francisco call to me, but there’s just something about that stretch that makes me so happy. The houses are gorgeous, like this brick baby in our photos, and the view of the bay from Jackson and Broadway is a sight to behold. Whenever I’m getting caught up in something silly, all it takes is that view to bring me back to center.
I’ve worn this checked shirt six ways from Sunday (don’t believe me? go here and here), but I had yet to layer it under a dress. Now I think I’m hooked. I hate wearing jackets over dresses with lovely details, which is why most of my clothing is 3/4-sleeved. Layering a punchy shirt under is simply the perfect solution. Why didn’t I think of this before? That’s right- I used to associate layers button-downs with the preppy horror that was 90’s teen movies. Time for a new direction.
