So this rain…

I’ll be the first to admit, I really don’t know what to wear when it rains. Either I’m staying home or en route to somewhere where I won’t need all the rain gear. You’re basically stuck overdressing or underdressing. Considering it’s been raining almost  non-stop here for the last two weeks, I’ve found no inspiration to getting dressed (other than the few hours it has stopped, I’ll share those outfits soon). Worse yet, I’ve found only THREE rain outfits in my 8 years of blogging!

I’ll share those three here in hopes they’ll inspire me to be more creative with even what I wear on rainy days! As always, click on the image to see the original post!

Wow, I’ve lost that clear umbrella. But I still have this trench and these boots!

Layers galore, gotta dig out those boots!

Seems fitting, this was one of, if not the last, outfits I shot right before I left Las Vegas four years ago almost to date! My, how I have changed!

Happy Friday!

Wearing these boots the same way

Taking a cue from my previous post to see how I’ve remixed these black booties, and I see that I’m a terrible creature of habit! *note to self* get more creative in finding ways to wear black boots!

Per usual with these remix posts, click on the image to see the original post!

Feeling the green

When I did my previous post, I first thought I didn’t wear much green – but after an evening of going through my blog archives, I’m amazed that WOW, I do have lots of green in my wardrobe. When I was young, I went through one of those phases where green was my favorite color and I wore a lot of it. I must have over-saturated myself, because it just wasn’t my color for a long time.

I have rounded-up some of my favorite past greeny outfits. As always, click on the photo to get to the original blog post!

Oh shorty

My last post got me thinking about how much I used to like showing my legs – it’s not that I don’t anymore, it’s just that the weather doesn’t really permit it here in San Francisco (and who am I kidding, I’ve become self-conscious about it!) So having been in Palm Springs gave me a flashback of a real summer where it’s okay to dress like this and not feel like you’re showing too much (cause everyone else is too!) just like when I lived in Vegas. This is my goodbye to summer post!

As always, click on the photo to get to the original post. And don’t worry folks, I always wear a pair of shorts underneath!

Bring on the cold weather outfits! Bon voyage short dresses.

A Marc Jacobs kind of girl

My previous post reminded me of how much I have admired Marc Jacobs – there is always a great vintage-like twist to his brand, which I really love. I just wish it wasn’t made in China, but I’ve been lucky to have gotten most of the clothing second-hand at great prices! Do you ever feel like there are just some designers that get you!? So I’ve rounded up some of the Marc Jacobs things I’m lucky to have collected over the last few years!
