Little Red Beret

I made a mistake a few years ago. I stupidly donated my red beret thinking I’d never wear one again. Why?! Don’t even ask me, I can’t remember. But here I am sitting years later, early this month kicking myself because I REALLY needed one again. I should know better than to get rid of wardrobe staples and basics…I’ll eventually want to wear them again.

Then I had to hunt for one all over again and was met with that magic situation where, when you want something, it’s impossible to find! But I was able to find my little hat and I’m a happy camper again. It came in handy for this bitter cold and rainy weather we’ve been having. Especially on days I know the rain and humidity will turn my hair into a big ball of frizz. It’s easy to put on a bright hat and feel more cheerful (even though this weather mixed with the current state of our nation is enough to make me want to stay at home forever!)

Season transitions

I’m so happy about all the Halloween feedback I got from you guys, great comments on Instagram! 🙂 It took a lot of work to put all the supplies together, shoot, edit, and post. So now I’m glad that’s behind me. I’ve been taking it easy! I’m actually super excited about my wardrobe, because I’ve been able to implement the one in, one out formula – but replacing them with better quality items! (I’ll just warn you now, never ever buy any Alexander Wang T’s, worst money ever spent!)

My wardrobe has been pretty relaxed. I’ve even delved into the flared pant trend (in baby steps) with my version being just a tiny bit flared! I love this dark blue wash on them too! The 70’s are back (ha!) so this is my 70’s redux outfit then

Polka

Our weather has been doing all sorts of fun things lately. We went from 90 degree weather to windy rain in a span of two days – September is typically the beginning of the Bay Area summer, I had my fall things put away. But now, I’m pulling the sweaters out again. So a simple sweater and jeans outfit hits the spot (pun intended) for a casual work day that transitions well into meeting up with friends afterwards.

And remember the last post where I talked about color? Well, baby steps with pink dots for me! Sometimes I feel more brave with patterns than colors in my wardrobe. So when the weather is right, I have a perfect skirt I’d like to wear this sweater with again!

Light summer layers

Weird weather (and lack of water) up and down California has left all us dressing in all sorts of different forms. This has been the summer of weird weather. While we’ve gotten no rain in San Francisco – we have gotten just about everything else (other parts of California are randomly getting drenched then getting scorched). So I’m prepared for all elements in this light layered and white/grey outfit.

I’ve had this burnout top for a few years now, and I’ve washed it so much that the fabric has faded even more! It’s like wearing a light gauze, which is actually perfect for really sunny weather as it keeps me cool from the sun and helps me not burn! While I’m enjoying this warm summer in San Francisco (typically it’s more foggy), I’m still hoping for rain any day. I’ll gladly sacrifice fashion for any rain. A few pictures here in my happy place (aka Golden Gate Park where I frequent the gardens and museums almost every weekend!)
