Pismo Redux

Continuing my fog-fleeing pattern, we headed south this weekend to Pismo Beach on California’s Central Coast. I’d never been to that part of the coast before and found something slightly reminiscent of the California beach towns of an era gone by, complete with classic neon signs, a lively boardwalk/surfing scene and Skynard/Eagles/Foreigner cover bands. We posted up at the Cliffs Resort situated on Shell Beach (just north of Pismo) and couldn’t have been more pumped about our (dog-friendly!) accommodations – highlights were sweeping views, direct beach access and a ridiculous champagne brunch. Other than a little surfing (the dude) and seaside jogging (me), we basically spent our time chillaxing; knew that beach blanket would come in handy.

Side note: Pismo served as the perfect place to meet up with one of my pals from LA; highly recommend it as a meet-in-the-middle spot for San Francisco/LA.

Festival Dressing

Music festival season is nearly upon us my friends, and while I won’t be heading south to Indio this month, I’m already planning my festival attire anyway. The Bay Area is playing host to its own awesome music celebration this spring, with Bottlerock hitting the Napa Valley in May, and I certainly won’t be missing that. Music fest getups should be easy but fun, and comfortable footwear is of the utmost importance, since no one likes traipsing around festival fields/gravel/mud pits in heels. Other things to take into consideration are sun and heat, so easy fabrics and sun protection are key.

Happy music festing!
