I just asked my husband what he wanted to do tonight and he said: “Hang out, open some wine, light a fire.” Yes, that’s what goes on in San Francisco—Pacifica, I should say, where we live now—in the summertime. Folks huddle around roaring fireplaces. So, much like in winter on the east coast, it’s important to have warm, cozy clothing for hunkering down at home, and it might as well also be cute. (Not that it’s nearly as cold in SF as the east coast in winter. But we’re delicate and we like to complain.) These super cute Zoe Karssen palm-tree-print sweatpants are the perfect solution. And they’re on sale, marked down from $180 to $54 at Net-a-Porter! The extra bonus is I can wear them to teach Pilates, just as you can wear them for your favorite athletic activity, or at least getting to and from it. In fact, just so you know I’m serious here, I just bought bought them for my greedy little self. I couldn’t turn you all loose on them before I made sure I had my own!
I would love to hear how you stay warm in San Francisco in the summer—especially when you want to be ready for that slice of sun that just might peep through, if just for a few moments. Madeline, the studio manager at Core Pilates and Physical Therapy where I teach, was just asking my advice this morning on this particular subject, and I directed her to Stolen Sunday infinity scarves and “scoodies,” which I wrote about the other day. I’ve also become a devotee of layering various T-shirts underneath a blazer. What tricks do you have up your (layers of) sleeves?
