Last September I was contemplating moving from SF to LA for a change of scenery and because the weather in San Francisco was ‘too cold.‘ Fast forward a year and I’m gearing up for my first winter in Switzerland. Isn’t that an icy bit of irony. But before the rain, sleet and snow sets in, we flew 90 minutes to spend our last summer’13 weekend soaking up the sun in Majorca, Spain.
Here’a my Top 4 Summer Reflections from styles to Cervezas before this blond California bear hunkers down for winter in the Swiss Alps…
1. Retro Denim Cutoffs ~ I wore these all summer! The wash screamed 90’s and I loved their high waisted Farrah Fawcett 70’s feel. Plus, they’re longer in the back so preventing an ounce of Miley Cyrus-esque overexposure. BONUS: These shorts could still be sported with booties and a long cardigan this fall.
2. Mirrored Sunglasses ~ Keep an eye out for metallic shades because they’re sticking around for next Spring & Summer, especially blue mirrored sunglasses.
3. Fitness Shoutout ~ I was spoiled with outdoor workouts in Cali like night runs in November and tennis in January. Because it randomly rains in Europe a lot I joined a gym and have to give a shout-out to Body Pump. If you want a full body workout that’s less intense than Crossfit (which I can’t handle) but seriously tones legs and thighs; see if your city has this workout.
4. Oh Shandy ~ Every country has its own version of this, but Shandy in Spain is about 3/4 ice-cold beer mixed with 1/4 Fanta Límon and I loved it! Have you heard of this drink?
Is it already feeling like fall where you live or still summer?
