Just a little fancy

When I began this blog and lived in Vegas, getting dressed for nightlife was a bigger part of my life (hence why I have an #OotN category as wells as a #OotD one). But living in San Francisco, those chances to dress up at night became fewer and fewer – and it’s not that people don’t like to dress nice here, but that you can get away with casual dressing practically every single day and for almost occasions! That when I do get to dress up, it’s really nice, I take full advantage of it!

And while our daytimes can be sort of warm, I had to take a sweater with me before it got dark because it always gets cold at night again. No matter the daytime weather (sorry to all of you melting away)

Sweater: Marc Jacobs, thrifted. Dress: Diane von Furstenberg, thrifted & Made in the USA! (the style is called Bridget, here are a few in different colors for sale). Lipstick: Revlon Colorburst in Raspberry Pie. Shoes: Dries Van Noten.

PS. I love bringing back outfits like this, that are showcasing style on a dime. I think this whole outfit cost less than $50!

My new striped dress

I’ve had a certain striped dress at the back of my mind these last few years – I was (and still am!) completely enamored by a certain Marc Jacobs striped silk dress (I even tried it on). But the price tag? Ouch, was several hundred dollars out of my budget. I’ll keep the story short, but I found this fabric with my mom and we immediately thought of THE dress and she agreed to make me an inspired version. How lucky am I to have such a talented mother!

I’m still laughing at this silly pose, but we had been watching a new Bettie Page documentary on Netflix the night before – apparently she had a knack for the weirdest poses, I on the other hand, do not :)

Summer Solstice Stripes

Nothing quite says Summer like putting on something short to enjoy a warm day at the park! Don’t worry, I wore shorts underneath :) this striped tunic is one of my favorite summery things to wear on weekends, pairing it with these old boots was an unexpected look I quite liked!

Tunic: Rag and Bone (here’s a link to a similar Rag & Bone striped tee). Boots: Target, very old. Backpack: Fjallraven. Lipstick: Revlon Matte Colorburst in Showy

Also, I have been having issues lately with resizing my photos – of which, I don’t know if it’s Flickr or my theme. And all of which, I also cannot tell how it will look until it is published. So I’m gonna try these larger photos for a bit. I hope you don’t mind as I figure things out. Please let me know if you see anything funky going on.

A rainbow of pants

I just added a pair of purple pants to the mix as you just saw, but I went back into my archives (can I say archives after 7 years of blogging can I saw archives?) and found some of my more recent rainbow array of denim/pants! Now all I need is yellow to complete my rainbow! Where can I get some mustard pants? :)

Pants of color

When your “pops of color” are your pants, does it even count as a pop anymore? Now that I’m back in the public library (as opposed to library behind the scenes), it is crucial to be comfortable when you’re on your feet, up and down from the desk all day. Flats are my new best friends, as well as pants.

When I lost some weight a few months back, I had to get rid of most of my pants because they no longer fit. So I’ve slowly had to find pants that fit again. So I’ve been having fun collecting a rainbow of pants! (as you will soon see).

Top: Madewell. Pants: JCrew, thrifted. Shoes: Matt Bernson, purchased with Shopbop sponsor credit. Earrings: can’t see them cause they’re itty bitty, but they’re from Marc by Marc Jacobs and I love them!!
