I have an outfit similar to this that I'm packing for the beach. In North Carolina, they have real summer. I hear they have real summer in other parts of Northern California, but seeing as it's completely impractical to drive 1.5 hours round trip on a weekday whim to prove it to myself, I am instead going to attempt to front load my summer in 10 days. In North Carolina, this isn't even real summer yet, but to my malnourished senses I believe this will be as close as I can get. As you can tell by the sweater and scarf, my mind is telling me that the weather I knew and loved cannot be trusted - I'm a silly San Franciscan now, planning for an unpredictable chill.
Dear East Coast,
Please be hot and humid, just like I remember so that when I sip lemonade, my lips smack with refreshment. And if you could, please also make toting around a fleece a laughable action.
