Playlist: San Francisco Road Trip

Today Marc and I are getting a head start on the weekend and going on our much anticipated San Francisco weekend getaway. It’s only about an hour plane ride away from LA but we decided that it would be much more fun to take our sweet time, drive up the coast, and check out Solvang, San Luis Obispo, Monterey, Paso Robles and Pismo Beach along the way. And of course, a road trip just isn’t a road trip without a prerequisite playlist that you can sing your heart out to, bop your head to, or cruise along with while you relax and enjoy the scenery. With my musical taste all across the map with Dancehall, Reggae, R&B, Folk, Indie Rock and Pop and Marc’s towards Hard Rock and more Hard Rock, between the two of us, I think we’ve got this road trip covered.

What to Wear: Turban Two Ways – San Francisco Road Trip

Lately, I’ve been pretty infatuated with turbans in good part to it’s a classy quick fix solution to a big bad hair day dilemma. So it was a no brainer hairstyle of choice when figuring out what to wear tomorrow on our road trip up the Pacific Coast Highway to San Francisco, especially since we’ll be driving with the top down. Because the difference between having a glamorous wind against your skin Grace Kelly moment and an embarrassing hair in your face gaff is, more often than naught, simply a well placed head scarf around a thirty second bun. Because we all know that’s all we probably have time for the morning before leaving town anyways. So I came up with two turban inspired, simple California fun looks that are comfortable to wear on the road, and chic enough to make a statement upon arrival.

 

TURBAN TWO WAYS

ON THE ROAD

  • For those of us who are turban confused, here’s a great turban tutorial by the beautiful and very talented Keiko Lynn.
  • Classicly shaped oversized Lanvin sunglasses with the perfect amount of hardware make for old meets new Hollywood chic and enough coverage to protect our eye from the suns beautiful yet harmful rays, especially on those super sunny California days.
  • A flirty little feminine scalloped lace tee by Funktional make even the most casual outfits romantic.
  • I love these Cleopatra like earrings by Eddie Borgo, lending some architecture to this otherwise softer outfit.
  • Southwestern printed shorts by IRO for a South West road trip. What could be more perfect?
  • Slip on. Slip off. These glittery espadrilles by Jimmy Choo are perfect to slip on once you’re at a vista point and to slip off once you’re relaxing in the car with your feet on the dashboard.
  • This outfit would not be complete without a sunny punch of neon in the form of a Tory Burch snake crossbody bag where you can store all your road trip essentials.
