I almost shudder to say this….but fanny packs are making a comeback in a fierce way. I dont think I’m wrong by stating that fanny packs are commonly considered the black sheep of handbags. It’s not unusual to spot one on a well traveled tourist, along with the obligatory camera around the neck. If I spotted a fanny pack on someone, it used to make me cringe. Literally. Well, that’s not the case anymore. I suppose the comeback of the fanny pack was inevitable, given that fashion trends are constantly finding ways to revive and reinvent themselves.
Springtime in California is not what you think it is. Quite frankly, some of the coldest days I’ve ever experienced have been in “sunny” San Diego. Southern California’s May Gray and June Gloom are the weather phenomenon usually responsible for two months of seasonal depression. Now this particular surf trip to San Diego was bone-chillingly cold and wet. La Jolla’s dark skies shielded the sun like the best pair of sunglasses ever made (Thank you Tom Ford). And to add insult to injury, it was crazy windy….you know….the sharp, biting type of wind that makes your eyes water? Therefore, our attentions turned to shooting photographs and making the most of our stay instead. Thankfully, versatile wardrobe pieces and creativity saved the day for piecing together a few different looks.
In the past, I would’ve described myself as being a punctual person. However, in all honesty…I have never been on time. In Dayna’s world, this notion of promptness and being on schedule is a complete fallacy. Just ask blogger’s husband….he has probably logged at least 100 hours of waiting time. Habitual tardiness has turned into a perfunctory task and I find myself saying, “Sorry I’m late” on a consistent basis. I recently read an interesting article on individuals who are chronically tardy. This made me think about my own rational decision making process and time management skills; or lack thereof. With that being said, these are the real reasons why I am habitually late.
Does it feel as though we have officially bypassed Spring and made a beeline to Summer? I have a confession to make….I have taken so many blog photos of myself dressed in fall clothes, I have major anxiety knowing I could be showcasing fall outfits into mid-summer! Noooo! (picture me sprawled out on the floor, tantruming with feet and arms flailing) How can I inspire you to wear a sweater in temperatures that will melt eyeliner halfway down your face? However, in all fairness, it cannot be that hot yet because my Korean mother is still ordering hot tea when we go out to eat.
A woman’s closet would not be complete without a few cozy and chunky knit sweaters. Long gone are the days of ugly, itchy, scratchy sweaters that only served a utilitarian purpose. I tend to think sweaters are the unsung heros of fashion. Considered banal by some, they are often overlooked in favor of more fashionable pieces. However, modern day sweaters are now chic, feminine, and stylish. That being said, doesn’t it feel wonderful to bundle up in a soft, slouchy, oversized sweater or cardigan? I have a thing for sweaters and I love a cozy cardigan!
When I’m not obsessing over clothing, shoes or my horse, I love traveling and being the intrepid explorer with my husband. San Diego is typically our getaway destination because we love to surf. Ahh, yes….the many faces of Dayna. Equestrian, surfer, skater, dental hygienist, fashionista, shoe addict, step-mom, wife, home-maker, and blogger oh my!
