Whenever I'm planning a trip to California, I can't help but think of the song Holiday From Real by Jack's Mannequin. Tomorrow, I leave for a short trip to the west coast, the bay area to be specific, to visit my sister and her girlfriend. I'm predominantly excited, slightly nervous, and very behind on packing. I'm mostly relieved to be getting a short but necessary change of pace. A little time away from work, a little time away from home, is just what I need at the moment. It's my first plane trip by myself, which is making me a little anxious, but I know I'll be alright. I mean, I can watch the Muppet movie on the plane, so that should keep me occupied, right? Right. I was thinking of asking for guest posters, but I'll probably put up a post while I'm away, because my computer and I are sort of inconveniently attached at the hip. As I've been assured by my boss, there's "a lot of fashion in the bay area." Of course. This outfit feels super summery and vacation-y to me with the bright colors and gingham. Pay no mind to the freakishly brown apocalypse sky in my photos. Editing skills at their best. I mean, just look at my bottom in that last photo. It's simultaneously glowing AND disappearing. MAGIC!
