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!!

I should have posted this when it was actually the holidays…but oops! I’m sure this dress will make an appearance again during wedding season! I also have a 2016 roundup coming soon!

Ay Caramba

I had become a bit obsessed with the weirdest thing a few months ago. I got it into my head that I NEEDED to find a vintage Simpsons sweatshirt. Don’t ask me why, I can’t even remember why. And the problem was that it was hard to find. Mostly because I’m neurotic about buying things online you cannot try on (and return easily.) Half the time, the sweatshirts were too big – mostly because they were for men. Or they were really expensive – because they were rare and funny. Sometimes they were just too worn or weird (aka dingy) looking – not what I was going for…I ended up jumping for something I thought was cute. It did end up a tad bit too small for me (okay, really small.) It fits more like a top than a sweater, but with our mild San Francisco summers, it works.

It’s hard to read what Bart is saying, but it’s the famous “Jingle bells, Batman smells…” line! I’m actually shocked to realize I haven’t shown this skirt more here on the blog – I practically lived in it last year!
