With our recent L.A.-fling still playing in our minds (on repeat, admittedly), we can’t help but longingly look through our camera roll while we sit on the subway, reminiscing over everything from the street style (beachy! boho!), to the pace (so laid back…), to that gorgeous-all-year-long-beach weather that’s great for our skin, our hair, and our soul. We’d hate to stereotype, but L.A. was everything we dreamed of and then some, complete with all of the palm trees our city-girl hearts could desire. And while we won’t be trading our Metrocard for a convertible anytime soon (tempting as it is), we can’t help but obsess over how the other coast lives. Illustrator Lesley Morphy captures our West Coast withdrawals exactly with these chic #lingeriestyle inspired comics, from the morning routine down to the commute, we can’t help but reel in some serious feels (and giggles) over how true some of these are.
