Old school

I was a young teen girl in the 90′s, where California cool ruled the world. I would browse my brother’s yearbooks constantly to see what older girls wore (it was one of my favorite summer time hobbies as a kid). Seems fitting, as I caught a rerun of Baywatch last night. So I always feel somewhat connected to that familiar 90′s wardrobe – even though it’s not something I always wear. So lately I had been on the hunt for the perfect vintage Levi’s (had to be made in USA!) and had an urge to pair them with this simple button up top, it was the perfect hint of the 90′s I was looking for. They’re a little snug, but considering I like how they look from behind, I can’t complain :)

Funny enough, I was able to find a companion pair to these blue jeans on the same trip – an identical cut of Levi’s but in a darker wash BUT in spite of being the same size, they do not fit me. Like at all! This is what happens when you shop at a thrift store that doesn’t let you try on clothes (womp, womp). But since I had been browsing for some denim to try an embroidery project on, this is the perfect opportunity. Hoping I can share that with you guys soon!

Night at the museum

I told you I wasn’t done with the museums quite yet – we have a fashion exhibition currently rolling through San Francisco at the Legion of Honor and I HAD to see it! I love seeing these fashion and style exhibitions whenever I can, they are truly inspiring to understand how different generations have dressed (then to see it come full circle in contemporary fashions!). I kept my own fashions simple but fun.

Besides the special show, the Legion of Honor itself has some amazing classic art

Some of you may recognize the Charles James dress that was part of the MET exhibit last year. What a dress!

Navy blues

When you find out that you’ll be on a boat for a few hours, what do you wear? This is not typically a predicament I find myself in. A luxury really. But one that I had the joy of joining last weekend, and even more lucky we have many boats here that will take you cruising in the gorgeous bay. This atypical January weather has allowed for Spring outfits. My goal has been to wear things I haven’t worn in a long time – what I got was a street guy yelling at me “Hey, you look like the 40′s” all I could do was laugh, he was right!

Romper time

When in Rome! I haven’t worn this romper in a hot minute (no pun intended). So I figured, if I can’t wear it in San Francisco, I’d have to wear it when I visited Palm Springs (posts are delayed because of Halloween posts, I promise this is the last time you see shorts here this season – but I have winterized this romper before, evident in this past post).
