Howdy

Spring is officially here – hooray! The funny thing is that we’ve been having these foggy/misty mornings that make my hair turn into a frizzy tornado. Totally defeating the purpose of running a brush through it at all. It’s time like this that I really miss my long hair, where I could lasso it down and not have to worry about it. This is a weekend look for me, where we took out of town guests to the De Young museum here in San Francisco. On a sunny day, the 360 degree tower view is unbeatable. Just not the easiest to take pictures of inside :)

This look ended up a great mix of high & low, just how I like it!

Out of Print

I’ll keep this post short and sweet – mostly because I noticed there was a huge smudge of I-don’t-know-what on my camera lens AFTER I took these pictures. This was the best of the bunch, and it still looks pretty bad. Sorry. I’m bummed about it because I’m in total LOVE with this sweater! I never thought I’d find it second hand either. I actually just read the Great Gatsby a few months ago too, right before I found the sweater, so it was kind of meant to be. My most librarian outfit to date ;) I do want to support Out of Print more – but until they start making their clothes in the USA….I just can’t buy it new!

My skirt

How did March get here so quickly? And how is it already half-way over?! I have been trying to force myself to go bare-legged when the sun is poking out – even when I know the fog will roll back in. Who cares if I have to change before the sun sets? My legs are in desperate need of some sun! (and I’ve been keeping an extra pair of tights balled up in my purse in case I really begin to freeze). I saw some photos of girls bare-legged in NY during Fashion Week. I don’t know how they do it (or why they do it?) If you can’t figure out how to dress weather appropriate for snow, then maybe this fashion thing isn’t for you?

I’ll gush some more about how I love it when the things my mom makes me turn out so well. It’s not my first time wearing this dress (as seen here previously). But for a dress that has a more Southern California vibe, I’m trying to figure how to incorporate it into my Northern California lifestyle. This time it was with some casual shoes for a weekend bit of fun while the sun was still out (sorry those of you in snow). But I really want to try wearing this dress as a skirt next, so I can wear it to work! As someone who draws a distinct line between my work and fun wardrobe, this will be hard to do. (am I the only one who does this?)
