Welp, we made it. It’s finally Spring. I remember the first day of Spring in the Midwest. I – and everyone else – would pull out shorts and tank tops and bike everywhere and lay in the grass, even if it was 50 degrees. I saved up all my absences in my classes for those beautiful Spring days when you couldn’t possibly sit in a classroom. We’d open up the garage door in the ceramics studio and feel the sun for the first time in what seemed like years. I would do anything for a sunburn those days.
The first day of Spring in San Francisco is not the same, but this weekend felt like it. I’ve been to Dolares Park twice already and Golden Gate Park once, doing nothing but sitting on a blanket and enjoying the sun. THIS is why I moved to California.
This week, it’s a little harder. It’s mostly rainy, pretty breezy, and threatening to storm any second. Spring seems to be resisting its return, but I refuse to go back to winter clothes. And the best part of Spring? It’s warm enough to air dry my hair.
This seems silly, I realize. It’s a little thing, but wet hair makes everything cold and drying it is, well, a big pain in the ass. My mom and sister both have extremely curly hair, so I’ve learned not to complain about mine. Thankfully my natural hair, beach waves, has come into style in recent years and in Spring I embrace it like I embrace my stuffed animal every night (true story).
So this, this is my natural hair. I love the feeling of blown out, straightened hair, but I always get compliments when I literally DO NOTHING to it. Well, by nothing I mean brush it, put in some curling cream, and scrunch and twirl it ceaselessly during my commute (sorry, 10 Townsend riders).
I’m also a diva and leave it down during Lunch Yoga, which makes me feel super prissy, but hey, it lets me take pictures after work during this golden hour we finally get to come home to.
Long story short, my spring outfit is this: tank, scarf, jacket, jeans, my new favorite kickass clogs, and my naturally wavy hair.
P.S. If you’re in search of the perfect spring scarf, go straight to your nearest LOFT. I seriously get 2-3 new scarves from them every Spring and wear them ceaselessly. They had a pop of color to any outfit, and I get so many compliments on them.
Anyway, happy Spring everyone. Does your hair routine change with the weather? Tell me about it!
