Just call me your typical CA girl

5 things I love about California

One // All weather is dress weather. 


If it's hot? We dress like the left picture. Cold? Add a few more accessories or layers, and dress like the right picture. 

Now, keep in mind that "hot" for us is anything over 70, and "cold" is anything below 70. But hey, it's all relative, right?

Two // Want to go to the beach? You can drive there. Camping in the mountains? You can drive there. Snowboarding? You guessed it, you can drive there. 

Now that's what I call diversity. 




Three // We're smack dab between Hawaii and the East Coast. 

Maui? 5 hour flight away. 


Boston? 5 hour flight away. 



Any longer and you may as well fly to Europe instead, am I right? 

{Which probably explains why I have yet to fly to Europe. Need to fix that asap}

Four // Mexican food. 

I've heard that we're known for our amazing Mexican food, and I can 100% affirm that rumor. 



We have some bomb Mexican restaurants, and after looking at that picture, I may need to jet on over to one. 

Five // How can you ever be upset about traffic when this is your view?



And there you have it folks, 5 reasons why I love California. 

If you ever want to visit, you'll probably find me at your local Mexican restaurant. I'll have a burrito waiting for you.

Love this showcase! I've only been to CA once to visit Sacramento and loved it, would love to go back and explore.

Might have to steal your idea to post about my own home!

Reminds me of being in NC ;) Except the middle in the middle of Hawaii & East Coast, ha!

I've never been to California, but I can totally relate to the anything over 70 is hot and under 70 is cold! That's so me! I hope to visit the west coast someday and maybe get some mexican food too!

xo, gina

no fair! Only a super tiny percentage get to enjoy that view everyday in traffic. What about the rest of us :(
I do love wearing dresses all the time though!

Kerrie Williams said...
