Building a house of cards on a picnic table is out! here are a few others!
Wear our hair down. Ever wonder why so many men and women wear top knots in San Francisco? It’s the damn wind.
Bother wearing makeup. We can’t even wear lipgloss or we’ll find our lips coated with sweater fuzzies, hair, dirt, and other debris as if we just applied a thick layer of Elmer’s Glue instead of gloss. Those of you who are worried about being seen outside without makeup — just wear your hair down; no one will see your face anyway.
Wear a flowy dress or skirt. Take it from Sarah Jessica Parker — wind is a real bitch. Even a gentle breeze can catch us unaware in our underwear (hopefully we’re wearing our good undies when it happens). I’ve seen a whole unbelted dress waft up with a draft. If it’s windy, leggings are a must to go sans culottes.
Ride a bike. I’d much rather walk than feel like I’m riding my bike in an infinity pool. Of course, walking in the wind (that stretch of McAllister at Fillmore; that stretch of Van Ness near Market, I’m looking at you) can totally blow, too.
