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 🙂

New darkness

I’m gravitating towards wearing a lot of black again, drawn to the dark side once more. Even though in my heart I really love to be polar opposites. Sometimes I wear all black and then neon brights, I like to be dressed up and can rock the casual like nobodies business!

This is an outfit I learned to be comfortable with because it was indeed out of my comfort zone of what I typically wear and how I typically wear these said things. It’s a little masculine, it’s a little modern, I don’t know how to frame this outfit! It’s just edgier than I normally wear my clothes!

The fact alone that I found these pants at a thrift store still amazes me!

Little Blue Dress

So I’ve had this thing lately where I’ve REALLY enjoyed wearing navy blue and black together! And this particular outfit here has been my go-to outfit! I’ve worn this exact outfit so many times in the last few months, it’s not even funny. The scalloped bits of this dress have me in love with it, if I could find and buy it in every color, I would! (what I really want is one of those awesome scalloped bathing suits…but can’t justify the price!)

A perfect dress for throwing not so tiny but cute nephews into the air!

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.
