My roommate has been bugging me about this set of photos for a past few weeks. We keep poking fun at ourselves for how ill-prepared we were for San Francisco weather (yes, these are a little old).
We spent July 4 on the piers, camped out waiting for the fireworks to start. Sadly, since we spent the entire day in the city, we only dressed for the day and not the evening. We brought along a few extra sweaters and a sleeping bag (which was meant for sitting on during the fireworks) hoping that we would be able to stay warm enough to comfortably enjoy the fireworks show.
We were SO COLD walking from the piers to the car. Being in shorts and a tank top, I had to put on two extra layers of sweaters to keep warm. Denim shorts didn’t help either. I ended up stealing the sleeping bag from the others to use as a makeshift maxi skirt (I think I deserve some brownie points for being in red, white & blue!).
I think my roommate’s creativity trumped mine. She used a hoodie as a skirt! I was laughing so hard from how ridiculous we were both dressed. It didn’t help that I tripped over the sleeping bag at almost every intersection, tattering the seams in multiple places and she kept dragging the sleeves on the ground. Oops!
Feel free to poke fun of us some more! Looking back at these photos makes me realize how much I prefer comfort and warmth to being fashionable. It’s all about the practicality!0
