It is not sunny in the Bay area today. In fact, it’s been gloomy and rainy since yesterday. Perhaps this dreary weather is the reason why I find this Southern California bungalow so appealing.The rooms are filled with bright sunshine, there are lots of green plants, and the earth tone color of the interiors are calm and inviting. Not to mention that closet space (a wide open room dedicated to colorful maxi dresses and a seat lined with fur?!?!) is what dreams are made of. But probably my favorite part of this house is the outdoor living space – which looks perfect for soaking up those glorious sun rays. Now someone get me to SoCal stat!

But because my new position is outside of the city, I’ll be doing some variation of walking/busing/riding the train everyday. So what better way to celebrate my new commuter lifestyle by going shopping for some of the things that will make my transition into the real world easier? After consulting with numerous friends who have been doing the whole commuter thing for a while now (I’m so late to the game) I came up with this list of must-have items for my new morning and evening routine. Some of them I’ve already purchased (like the Fossil bag – it was so hard to choose which one I wanted, Fossil has totally upped their game recently!) and some of them are still wants (the bike – hello, Christmas present!) but I’m convinced all of them will make my new full work day that much better.

1/a bag that can carry it all :: 2/a travel mug for on-the-go tea :: 3/a lightweight bike :: 4/a cute lunch bag :: 5/a comfortable walking shoe :: 6/a stylish pouch to hold train tickets/bus passes :: 7/extra phone chargers :: 8/grab + go snacks
