While this photo looks like it was taken in Park City, Utah- it was actually taken while standing in line at Disney Land! I just got back from California, and it was FREEZING!!!!! I had to wear a scarf, gloves and multiple layers when at Disneyland. I was miserably cold, and so thankful that I had the supplies to keep me warm! I looked like a fish out of water, with my dark scarf, black leather coat, and black gloves and accessories. Among the crowed of brightly adorned California girls, we kind of looked like vampires. I did however, have a fabulous pair of Sunglasses- even thought it was cloudy. That should have helped me to fit in right? Also- canvas shoes are DEFIANTLY all the rage in California, so my red TOMS fit in perfectly!
While I didn't see anyone actually running around like the picture below- I was surprised by the Southern California girls stamina when it came to the cold. While I was FREEZING my buns off, and drinking hot chocolate one cup after another. They were stubbornly wearing their sandals, and their VERY short short. Tank tops, and belly shirts. I even saw one girl that was wearing her bikini, under a see through belly exposing tank top, and short shorts, that gave her to opportunity to let her bikini strings hang out . I mean COME ON! It was 50 degrees!
Like I said, there were no Katy Perry California Girls running around ( thank goodness!) however, I did realize that California girls are dedicated to their craft. In contrast to my self, a UTAH girl, who is dedicated to keeping all my fingers and toes, and mainly staying warm, and covering everything up until I reach and can maintain a certain body temp! Speaking of which, sitting here writing this post- I have three top layers on, and my fingers have gotten so cold they feel like they are no longer working properly.
Note to self: Buy fingerless gloves, so when typing about staying warm, I can actually try and stay warm.
In conclusion. I think its lame to dress like its one season, when clearly its another!!!! On that note- I'm off to make some hot chocolate and toast.
PS. I fell off the shopping bandwagon. I bought a couple of really adorable tank tops to wear on my sunny California trip. What a waste of a re-lapse! Back on the budget starting this week! (:
