Made in USA Monday

Welcome to Made in USA Monday’s – where I’ll be exploring trends that caught my eye in small doses, but supporting sustainability and Made in USA!

This weather – both the sunny sun and rainy rain, has me pulling all my hats out now. I also would have never in a million years thought I’d be one to wear baseball hats – but I recently bought two for running and now I’m wearing them all the time, even outside of running. So I literally have hats on my mind! I wish there were more Made in USA options, but many hat specialists are located all over the world, and I’m okay with that too!

Made in USA Monday

Because I’m flexing my fingers (and brain) to challenge myself to write more and get into blogging regularly again, I’d had this idea brewing over some time to create some short posts about within my larger Made in USA theme. Of which, has sadly taken a backseat on this blog, but still VERY important to me in real life. A bigger post will be coming soon about my observations over the years, my accomplishments and failures, and current state of fashion.

In the meantime, I’ll also be doing these smaller themed Made in USA Monday posts! So I’ve kind of been enjoying the jumpsuit look. I’ve recently purchased another one and I’m shockingly into the look and seeing other people wearing them! I may get another…but if I did, I want to make sure it’s something I can layer easily so as to not crash into the overly trendy zone. Which typically ends in falling out of fashion too quickly. I want something classic that I can wear for a long time. These four jumpsuits caught my eye! Best part, they’re Made in the USA!

A coral crush

I learned a long time ago to not apologize for not posting – but holy whoa, I’m so sorry for not posting. It’s as if time escaped through some vortex and now my life has been fast-forwarded a few months. How is it already March?! How is it almost April?! I’ve been super busy – I hate saying that, because EVERYONE is freaking busy! But I’ve filled my calendar up with so many things, of which running has become a huge piece of my life, and something had to give. Sadly, this blog was one of the first things to lose a piece of my time. I’ve had slumps, but this isn’t even that, I have the content – just no time to post it!!

So while the timelines of photos may not be current, it’s all still me 🙂

I wore this outfit on a way-too-sunny day. If you know San Francisco, then you know we don’t get too many of them. Especially not sunny AND warm days. I’ve been really feeling this beautiful and warm shade of coral. I think it brings out the green in my eyes? The auburn in my hair? I see it everywhere now. I may invest in a pair of coral pants now too, that’s how much I’m liking the color. Also, because I think it would mix well with all the grey and navy blue I have in my current wardrobe.

A vintage skirt

Being a collector of clothing (I’m going to start referring to myself as that from now on, heh) I tend to stow things away in one closet, then find them ages later having totally forgotten about them. And the urge to clean and organize comes in HUGE spurts for me. I’ll just go ahead and redo a whole area and clean it up so much, I don’t have to worry about it for months. And then…then in those things hidden, I find something that catches my eye.

Like this skirt, I bought it with the intentions to sell it, because it didn’t fit me. I knew I could find it a loving home in all its vintage glory. And by the time I rediscovered it, I’d gotten into such good shape from running that it fit ME! I love it so much right now.
