Memo 219: Throwing Shade

Happy New Year! It’s already a full week into the new year. Crazy, huh?!

That’s why this is something like a flashback going up on a Friday.

On my most recent visit to San Francisco, I was instructed to visit the Muir Woods National Park. There were giant redwood trees throwing mad shade EVERYWHERE. It had to be between 10 to 15 degrees cooler in the park. Talk about a pretty magical (and cold) experience. 

Of course, I was sort of prepared for the occasion with Pour La Victoire knee high boots paired with over-the-knee socks and layers consisting of a faux fur cardigan with my trusty Zara Coat with the faux leather sleeves. Woods, Trees and Layers is a part of how I pranced into the New Year!

How did you guys bring in 2016?

    I have recently started blogging and I am realizing more and more that I need to experiment more with surroundings because they add a certain ingredient that taking pictures at the same place will not do. I am one for finding comfort in what I like and sticking to it. The scenery of this shoot is breath-taking. I love it, keep up the good work.
