If You're Going to San Francisco... sure to wear flowers in your hair. Jk.

I'm going to San Francisco for my grandfather's ninety-ish birthday this weekend. Ninety-ish because he can't remember his age, and he doesn't have a birth certificate that documents it. Classic Ellis Island, amirite?

The quick weekend trip presents me with the ultimate test of minimalism. How many outfits can I create by bringing a minimal amount of individual articles of clothing? Input/output, this is not the type of economics my dad hoped I would use post-econ 101.

I've been lit-rally obsessing over the self-imposed challenge for the past 24 hours. I drew a Punnett square-esque diagram to organize my packing list at work, which resulted in one too many "who hired her?" glances from the thirty-something guy who sits adjacent from me. We'll see who's laughing when I've got the French/Isabel Marant thing down, and he doesn't. (Nope, he could care less).

I got the chunkiest of cotton sweaters on sale from Acne earlier in the summer, and it can be worn with white jeans (rolled up, just a leeeetle bit above the ankle), or with a pleated skirt. Both iterations of the look can be worn with Birkenstocks (they're here, they're queer, they're not going anywhere) or Vans slips-ons, both of which seem to be ubiquitous in San Francisco. Will also be throwing in a chambray shirt, which can be worn over the sweater, under the sweater, around the waist, or over the shoulders.
