‘What to wear in San Diego’ might seem as a surprising title for the post, but I wanted to share a style tip with those of you who are planning on a weekend in San Diego or elsewhere similar.
Everyone will agree that it is very hard to figure out what to wear when you are planning to be out all day without returning to the hotel, doing a variety of pleasurable things such as brunchin’, beach walking and restaurant hopping:) All this in one outfit?
I feel like I have finally figured it out last weekend so I am very impatient to share the little secret.
So, here are my 3 tips on what to wear in San Diego :
Wear comfortable flats: San Diego is a walking city and you certainly have to be comfy if you are planning to explore by foot.
Go for layering or long sleeve: even if you are visiting in summer, evenings in San Diego are quite chilly and you certainly need something not too open to feel comfortable.
Bold prints over complicated structure: if you do love taking pictures when you travel and worry about looking amazing I would advise to wear simple cut clothes in bold colors.
I personally opted for a pair of the most comfortable jellies I have ever owned by Ancient Greek Sandals – they feature a beautiful and unique wing-shaped design and look quite fancy, which make them a perfect day-to night sandal that you can be comfortable and look good in wherever you go. They come in every shade but I have chosen this royal blue which I find gorgeous but also easy to match.
I wore my Ikaria jellies with a beautiful yet simple H&M Conscious Collection dress. The length and long sleeve certainly makes this dress more ‘evening’ but at the same time quite bohemian I feel.
I think that with a pair of heels this dress would be too much anywhere else but a fancy dinner party, but the sandals tune the outfit down and make it very versatile in usage. Length and sleeves are also an advantage as San Diego gets quite chilly in the evenings and also windy if you walk on the beach around sunset.
In this outfit I had a brunch in Sweet Maple and got lots of compliments, visited the city, then we drove off to the beach and I could walk right by the water without worrying about my shoes getting wet! Then off to dinner followed by drinks in the coolest Mexican bar.
Result: five totally different places where I felt comfortable and appropriate in my outfit. That is what I call versatile 🙂 I hope this post will help all of you who are wondering what to wear in San Diego.
