In Sausalito

Days off are starting to give me this itch – I can’t just stay home! I’m starting to feel a weird anxiety if I do. I blame this on my Tokyo trip back in May, I want to travel more and more now! Lucky for me, there are lots of different places a short drive or ferry ride away. I went to Sausalito just to get away – there isn’t very much to do, and it has become overrun with tourists. There’s a lot of beautiful and classy places to eat, one jam-packed ice cream place, lots of quiet beachy fronts if you want to just read a book or write (like me!), and my favorite, visiting the original Heath Ceramics store and studio (get a free tour of the factory on the weekends!). Or maybe I have it all wrong, tell me if I’m missing something! But it’s a quick ferry ride across from San Francisco – enough to feel like you’re away from the City. I need to take more of these afternoon trips!

So right after these photos were taken, a huge wave splashed up to the waterfront here – everything below my knees were soaked, ha!

I wish sandal weather was here to stay more often – I own two pairs of sandals now since living in SF. I rarely wear them in the city, but love taking them on vacation (and wearing them on rare sunny days!). They’re not in the best condition any more since having to trudge across a river in them (long story) – I’m hoping to eventually replace them, especially in a fun color! But right now, they’ll do :) Get yours HERE

I don’t wear sandals to work anymore (feet easily get run over at the library by book trucks), but my old library job that was in the office allowed me to wear them when I wanted, like this!

Yikes, I don’t think I’d wear this outfit or anything like it again.

Sadly, the shoes are the only part of this outfit I still have. After I lost weight, all of this had to go! I’d wear it again if I could…

The funny thing about these shoes (besides running small) is that they’re literally the most uncomfortable shoe ever the first time wearing them – they feel exactly what you would imagine walking with a piece of wood tied to your foot feels like. But then your foot learns to adjust to the curve carved in (or maybe the curve adjusts to you?)

Into the forest

My weekends spent in Golden Gate Park are my favorite weekends. Sometimes I hang out at one end near the Conservatory of Flowers, other times I make it all the way over to the windmill by the beach! But in between, there are so many lovely and beautiful things to do – and for free! SF residents can get into the Botanical Gardens at no cost, and sometimes I just go to read, other times I take a blanket and mini picnic and just rest. This park within the park helps escape the feeling that the city life is consuming you whole.

If you ever visit San Francisco, please do me a favor and visit something, anything in Golden Gate Park. Even better, most Sundays, a long stretch of the road that runs through the park is closed off to vehicular traffic, and you can ride your bike or walk through without worry about competing with cars!

Remix: American Apparel

I don’t usually follow up my Spotlight posts with a Remix – but considering the vast amount of American Apparel has dotted my wardrobe over the course of my blogging years, it was a no brainer. It has always been a basics brand I’ve supported! But whilst living in Las Vegas (can you believe it’s already been almost five years since I moved away? I can’t!) I had lots of friends that worked for the brand, and as a student & someone starting their career, their price points always worked for me.

Let’s go down memory lane – some posts will be going back to the beginnings of the blog. You’ll see how much my style (and picture quality) has evolved! Funny enough, there is no way I can even show you in fact how much more American Apparel shows up here. These are just some of my favorites :)

I still really like my twist scarves, I have it in black now too!

American Apparel is known for versatile pieces – once upon a time, I wore this as a dress! It’s now strictly worn as a skirt!

The jumpsuit is now gone (I didn’t want to admit it was too short for my torso length), but I had fun wearing it anyway.

I still love my Le Sac dress, even though I rarely get to wear it in SF. It’s the easiest vacation dress because it takes up so little space in the suitcase!

I recently also got rid of this leotard - I loved it while I had it, but since you basically have to wear it braless – those days are behind me ;)

Once upon a time, I would have worn this as a dress too! (in Las Vegas, you get away with wearing really short stuff!). But used it as a top for my trip to Mexico. Eventually, this left my closet because it ripped!

I have no idea where this oversized grey top went! If I didn’t have another similar one by another brand, I’d buy it again.

Why was I so emo here?! I remember buying this because I thought I needed more pink in my wardrobe.

Holy cow this is short! I can’t believe I wore this to work!

Another one of the colorful basics tops! I’m pretty sure these aren’t my wardrobe anymore because I carelessly let them get stained :(

There’s a few things in AA stores right now I wouldn’t mind getting – but sometimes their clothes are just way too short for me (when I have to be professional at work!) My first American Apparel piece was a triblend top that was given to me at a 2006 Las Vegas tradeshow for free when they were first branching out wholesale – I still have that top! It has turned into a very soft, almost vintage-like piece that I won’t be getting rid of any time soon.
