How often do you get the opportunity to attend a wildly extravagant birthday party in City Hall? Well, once every year - if you know the guy.

California Snow Day
The torrential rain we’ve been experiencing in San Francisco has translated into several feet of fresh snow up in the mountains, and I was lucky enough to already have a house booked in Tahoe this weekend. Although the temperatures were surprisingly warm, there was still plenty of fresh powder on the slopes.
What I Wore Yesterday - working on a new product review. More coming soon.
Yesterday I took advantage of the beautiful San Francisco weather and ran around the city with some good friends. Then Gerald took some photos that make me look cooler than I actually am, which is ideal for blog posts like this one.
In a few hours I’m heading down the street to a private event at the new Ghurka store in San Francisco. I’m definitely looking forward to seeing their products up close, as well as hanging out with the SF menswear gang. Here’s what I’m thinking about wearing…we’ll see if I change my mind. That scarf in particular might be a bit too hopeful since the local temperature is currently hovering around 60 degrees. Oh, San Francisco.

As a native Oregonian I grew up loving the rain, and it’s unfortunate to say that California just hasn’t been getting enough of it. Our state is deep into a drought, but the good news is that we had a day of showers recently, and that gave me the opportunity to wear my rainy day gear.
All told, I’d say that this is a good example of how I like to dress - neutral colors and fairly classic proportions. I’m not much of a risk-taker when it comes to clothes, so I try to stick with simple things that are hard to mess up.

I hope that all my readers getting hit with that brutally cold weather are staying warm - the temperatures in San Francisco are still as mild as ever.
