Taking the long route to class was worth the Pacific Coast Highway morning traffic and unexpectedly intense sun exposure on the cliffs overlooking clear skies that matched the seawater. Ditching beachwear during the winter sounds like the sensible thing to do but not when such a season feels pretty much nonexistent in Southern California. I'm surprised at myself for staying fixated on chiffon bow ties at the collar and plaid tennis skirts for such an extensive time period, considering my inclination to promptly switch back my loyalty to basic cotton white button downs, little black jackets, and such of that kind. My guess is that they're classic enough to stand the test of time but almost always call for the additions of 21st century inventions like triple zipper purses and unclassifiable shoes. Otherwise, no need to subdue the teacher, schoolgirl, etc. idea.
