California has been truly phenomenal and I have so many lovely restaurants, stores, spas and retreats to share with you from this holiday of a lifetime, but in the meanwhile I will be super boring and simply post shots from holiday wardrobe!
I know that i'm no Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and my wardrobe doesn't exactly rival Poppy Delevingne's, but I am a real nosy parker when it comes to holiday style and I hoped you may be too!
The first part of our wonderful West Coast journey was a few days spent in San Francisco. My only niggle? It is much colder than I had anticipated- so excuse the abundance of goosebumps in my SF posts.
We began our first day with a glorious breakfast by Union Square (porridge -or oatmeal- for moi and strawberry studded French Toast for my companions) and then went on to spend the rest of the day down by Fisherman's Wharf. We feasted on glorious fresh crab (with stolen sips of dad's fiery Blood Mary) by the bay before heading out on a boat across to Alcatraz, a must see for all other keen tourists.
For this trip I wore my beloved Zara lace midi-dress (a similar style here), my faithful Zara jacket with aztec embroidery (on sale now) my H&M aviators and my sandals du jour from Dune (see them here).
I carried about my ultra heavy DSLR in my panic-bought Zara studded tote (also on sale), which I have found to be a great bag for Shona the Explorer.
Dora, eat yer heart out.
