California Calling

January 31, 2011

I spent the weekend hanging out with my brother Austin and it made me unbelievably homesick for my family and San Francisco. Even though I was home a month ago, I miss sitting around the kitchen with my fam, munching on delicious home cooked meals while the dogs chase each other around the room.

I wore this outfit back in December while I was home for the holidays and don’t know why I’ve taken so long to share it. I found this cape waiting for me under our Christmas tree and literally could not wait to wear it, which explains why I put it on on such a gray and rainy day. Although not at all waterproof, it turned out to be the perfect piece of outerwear for a day of light drizzle and big gusts of wind. Whenever I got tired of holding the umbrella I could just pop on my hood and poof! my hair was protected from the evil frizz gods.

While I don’t have any immediate plans to go to San Francisco, I imagine that my perpetual homesickness will bring me there sooner rather than later. And since the chances of me returning to San Francisco are likely to come sooner than the weather heating up in New York, I can guarantee that this cape is going to be making another appearance on the west coast, most likely more than once.
