In another lifetime (aka two years ago), turtlenecks and mom jeans were absurd enough when worn on their own, much less together. But now? I’m tired of constantly readjusting low-cut tops, and skinny jeans just seem increasingly restrictive and less appealing.

I’ve been reflecting a lot lately on how San Francisco has been influencing my style. I’ve noticed a subtle and subconscious shift towards looking more dressed-down and unassuming, which has gotten me thinking – does this make me an impressionable human being, or an adaptable one? Does this happen to anyone else? I’d argue that there’s certain elements of my style that I stay true to, but then again, I’m still figuring out what I like and what works on me. If it were up to me, we’d all be dressing up every day though (I love a good excuse to get dolled up and wear heels – and sadly there aren’t too many opportunities in San Francisco).

What about you all? Have your senses of fashion ever been transformed by your geographical locations? I smell a new article idea...

Full of Grace

I arrived at this photo shoot disheveled and confused – literally threw my face on in 15 minutes the morning of and ran my ass down to Grace Cathedral. Although I’m usually quite good about sticking to my commitments, this was just one of those off (slash hungover) days, yanno?

So it is a legit miracle that Ms. Jen Christo managed to make me look as put together as I do in these pictures. God bless this woman (who besides being seriously talented behind the lens also has bad-ass style herself – y'all can follow her at her Instagram here).

As for the venue, I’ve always wanted to shoot at Grace Cathedral. It’s one of my favorite places in all of San Francisco: so peaceful, yet majestic and imposing (like all religious institutions I suppose, but this one preaches inclusive Christianity and also has free yoga classes on Tuesday, so forgive me if I’m biased). Even atheists like myself can’t help feeling small and reverential when you’re standing in the square. 

Hope everyone had a happy 4th – photos from my weekend at a farm in Sonoma to come soon.
