As soon as the first relaxing night in San Francisco was over, I was sucked into the whirlpool of work the next day nonstop. There were training and meetings back to back, so much that whenever I looked at the watch, it was either time to go for lunch or to head home. I heard so much about how hard people in Silicon Valley work, but nothing was like what I imagined until I really worked there. Everyone was so focused, dynamic, energetic, and driven. It's hard not to feel motivated when I'm hanging around with people like that. Although, I'm a workaholic by nature, seeing everyone busy chasing their own goals makes me feel like I wasn't working hard enough at all.
I can't tell you how much I enjoyed my time in San Francisco, including the crispy weather of Spring, which helped to fight the jetlag and gave me the perfect chance to power up my fashion games: layering. I brought many basic pieces with me on this trip as they are so easy to style. I mean, we can never go wrong with a white turtle-neck top, a classic black trench coat and thigh high boots. The rest of what I was wearing were my treasures found in San Francisco.
I knew my wallet would be in trouble whenever I'm in the US, but this kind of trouble will surely make me happy.
Thank you so much for reading!
