It’s August and the days are long. From the East side of the city I watch the sun set behind Twin Peaks each day into a featherbed of fog. Late in the day I walk through the streets and all that old Victorian glass gleams silver and the moldings and decorations — lions, scrolls or fans —…

Shorts: Thrifted/Blouse: through Modcloth/Sweater: Free People/Shoes: Jeffrey Campbell/Bag: Zara It’s not hard to imagine this beach — with its stillness, its haziness, its prickly dune grass-iness — as a world apart from the rest of the city.

      I keep throwing on these nude, high-waisted, two-toned shorts for the hot mornings and afternoons we’ve been having in San Francisco. As it would obviously take far too much time to both borrow and set up the neighbor’s ironing board, the shorts remain wrinkled. Despite this, I wear them frequently and with…
