On repeat

The coincidence of posting this outfit in it’s almost entire repetition, exactly a year later, is pretty hilarious. But I love that it shows I’m sticking to embracing the commitment to my wardrobe and slow fashion. The same concept as before lies true – I try to make the most of wearing my Summer dresses in the cold weather months (which happens even during the “summer” in San Francisco.) This is always remedied by layering, especially with turtlenecks!

My new little black shoes¬†are also my FAVORITE shoes of the last few months. They just can’t seem to make an appearance here, for the outfits I take photos for, sadly. But I love them so much. I hate that I’ve had to not wear them for several weeks because I don’t want to ruin them in the rain (but I’d rather keep them as nice as possible for as long as possible!) I still love this dress SO much. I need to find another colorful way of wearing it besides paired with black. When I wear it, the colorful stripes make people stop me to say they love this dress. I just honestly love it because it has pockets!!

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!)

A quick hello

Will you hate me if I tell you this quick post has photos from a museum again?! It’s seriously addicting you guys!! It’s become my new favorite place to go and think…(besides the gym.) I have been taking my notebook and just sitting in a nook of the museum to write, not even observing the art. More so observing the people, which I love to do too! This post is a quick hello before I leave to LA for the holiday weekend. I have some more exciting outfits and photographs to share, but also a book giveaway!

This was my museum minimal outfit – with the luminous Richard Serra piece.

MoMa

So a lot of my outings lately have been to museums. Sorry (not sorry.) I’m now the proud member of three different museums in San Francisco and cannot urge you enough to do something similar near you! In the long run it becomes affordable if you visit often (like I do) and you typically always have a bonus ticket to invite a friend – and what good friends wouldn’t take you up on an offer to visit world class museums for free?!

So when I got the chance to visit the SF MOMA for the first time, I jumped at the opportunity to get a membership. Solely for the fact that it’s also too large to enjoy in one whole day. So now I get to come back as much as I want for a whole year! I feel lucky.

I’ve been trying to figure out where one can wear a bright yellow, wool, mini skirt…and if a museum isn’t perfect, I don’t know where else you’d wear the damn thing?! I still can’t believe I found it at the thrift store! It’s by Sonia Rykiel, who seems to have just passed away (RIP)
