Daughter, Sister

For the first time in years, fashion has been completely off my mind. I’ve been reaching for my oldest jeans and Jim’s Patagonia jacket while spending time with my family around the Bay Area. Walking along Land’s End and hiking through Jack London State Park let me reset myself from fashion to function, and I have to say it was refreshing to get dressed in the morning without giving a moment’s thought to creating an outfit. I love styling different looks and have a blast telling you about them, but it’s still nice to take some time away.

My parents lived here for over a decade when I was younger (and even before I existed), so their visits are always a beautiful combination of me showing them my world and them showing us what their life was like not too long ago. We spent much of our time by the water, be it Sutro Baths in the city or Marin’s Muir Beach, my favorite childhood place. Minnesota may have 10,000 lakes, but we have the Pacific.

Having family in town is always so wonderful, but it never fails to make me miss them more. Lately I’m dreaming of hopping onto a plane to Minnesota this fall, arriving in a sea of golden leaves, chilly nights, and the smell of wood smoke. Who knows what this fall will bring…
