When California Dreamin’ Becomes a Reality (Part 2)

My little escape to my “soon-to-be-reality” was a flood of emotions. Exciting, inspiring, new, and surprisingly comfortable. Example: I was terrified at the thought of driving around LA (not to mention in a rental car). Like…moving? Apartment searching? Meh…not too scary…but the thought of driving? But as soon as I pulled out on the first road I was like, “Okay…not so bad.” And Zack will tell you, I fit right in. Yea, 6 lanes sounds insane, but I swear it was really fine! And maybe everyone was just in a great mood those three days, but all the drivers were pretty friendly.

I think that’s just California though. Even though the city is huge and nonstop, everyone always seemed so relaxed. How could you not be though? The weather is almost always amazing, there are palm trees and beaches and mountains. It’s got it all. I mean, it was in the 60’s last week, and people were in winter coats. If that’s cold, sign me up!

So this is me, feeling relaxed and at home in California. Like I said here, kimonos and cut-offs are my jam (even better when you add a little fringe and acid wash to the mix). And I’m loving the new sandals by TOMS. You know my obsession with chambray, so how could I resist a chambray shoe!?
