Bay Area Outfit

I don’t know what’s going on with me – I think I may have been living in the Bay Area too long. Or maybe I’m getting older. Or maybe I’m feeling the trends too much right now. Maybe it’s just a combination of it all! Some days, I feel like I’m still recovering from being a former Las Vegas gal and the wardrobe that comes with it…I’m not quite sure that means! Some days I’m still figuring out the balance of being comfortable, age appropriate but also fun & youthful, not too trendy, work vs. play! I think that’s why I don’t have one specific style and my look is constantly evolving.

Lately, I’ve also been attracted to adding loose linen pieces to my wardrobe. Why? I’m enjoying how the earthy and organic colors come out. Plus, I’m barely (duh to me) figuring out how comfy they are! They also tend to be made in USA. Win, win, and win! So this loose and billowy top in this mellow yellow color really spoke to me at the thrift store! Part of me is worried that I’m turning into some stereotypes…but honestly, I’ve never cared 🙂

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.

On repeat

The coincidence of posting this outfit in it’s almost entire repetition, exactly a year later, is pretty hilarious. But I love that it shows I’m sticking to embracing the commitment to my wardrobe and slow fashion. The same concept as before lies true – I try to make the most of wearing my Summer dresses in the cold weather months (which happens even during the “summer” in San Francisco.) This is always remedied by layering, especially with turtlenecks!

My new little black shoes are also my FAVORITE shoes of the last few months. They just can’t seem to make an appearance here, for the outfits I take photos for, sadly. But I love them so much. I hate that I’ve had to not wear them for several weeks because I don’t want to ruin them in the rain (but I’d rather keep them as nice as possible for as long as possible!) I still love this dress SO much. I need to find another colorful way of wearing it besides paired with black. When I wear it, the colorful stripes make people stop me to say they love this dress. I just honestly love it because it has pockets!!

Holiday dressing

Hello 2017!

I love a good party, even more, dressing up for a good party! When I first started this blog, I had a dedicated tag for “outfit of the night” to compliment the ootd! But I just don’t go out as much anymore…nothing like when I lived in Las Vegas!

The weather has been absolutely bananas lately! Some days you get away with bare-ish legs (zipped indoors quickly and put a coat on) and some nights you’re covered head to toe! This wasn’t my NYE outfit, but for a work party! I’ve shied away from the color green for some crazy reason. But I used to LOVE wearing green. As I’ve steered towards more neutrals, the green in my wardrobe faded away – unless it was a green coat! (I have too many of those!)

This Diane von Furstenberg Zarita dress was on my wishlist a few years ago, when I almost bought it for my sister’s wedding. And then…I came across it again recently and now it’s mine!! Oh, it’s so beautiful! I can’t wait to wear it again because it’s just one of the prettiest dresses I’ve ever owned!!
