Hey, a simple outfit

I started this blog post with all different kinds of words – first with a whole breakdown of blogging, about style, and then I scrapped all the ideas. What this really is, is just a post about me and how some days, dressing down feels really good. I went to visit my family in Southern California to meet my new nephew and these travel outfits always end up quite interesting. Mostly because traveling between San Francisco (where it’s chilly, and has been rainy) to Southern California (where it’s inevitably sunny and warm) gets difficult when you only want to bring a carry-on. This outfit isn’t flashy, it’s not bright, it’s not even dark! (I do enjoy my all black outfits). It’s just comfortable, plain and simple.

My thrifted outfits are starting to lean heavily towards the Made in Asia side…I have a few things I need to do. I’ll have a Made in USA post coming up soon!

Clean lines

Hello December! Hope you all had a great Thanksgiving time, I was traveling non-stop but took some time to see the Keith Haring exhibit currently running at the De Young Museum here in San Francisco. It’s a must see! I’ll share pictures below. These past gloomy days have me dressing like the weather, in a rainbow of grays to match. I finally have pulled out the cozy sweaters. The great thing about thrifting, is that you’re never far from a cashmere sweater. I plan on eventually replacing all itchy sweaters with thrifted cashmere one day.

It’s very moving for reasons I don’t even have to state here. If you’re in the area, it is a must see!

Shades of green

Sooo…I owned (yes, past tense) only one black belt. Because why would you need more than one? And then…it disappeared. I can’t find it. I don’t know if I lost it while traveling. Maybe I threw it away on accident. Something so simple as a belt can change an outfit. I’m not in a rush to replace it, because alas, I have a handful of other belts I rotate (and because most of the time, you can’t even see it).

This outfit for example, I pulled together these three different shades of green, and a black belt would have just thrown the whole thing off. On that note, I think if I had the black belt, I may have fallen into a safer version of what this outfit could be.

It’s fitting, especially being surrounded by this moss that is slowly eating our back patio :)

Remix skirts

As a former dress addict, I’ve grown to love the simplicity and easiness of a skirt. When you wear a dress, that’s all you get. Wearing a skirt, you get the freedom to mix and match, much like you would when wearing pants. Plus, skirts feel a little more professional for work – where dresses can feel more constricting for what I do now (and they feel to sexy in a weird way #librarianproblems). What kind of skirts do you like to wear ? That is, if you like them at all!
