Falling for jumpsuits

I confess, I have recently become addicted to jumpsuits…

I’m not the kind of lady that likes maxi dresses, but I do like sleek and long looks. So I think the jumpsuit achieves that for me. Maybe I’m just late to this train ;) As someone who loves dresses in general, the jumpsuit gives me the same ease of getting dressed in the morning (especially on a day I’m running late to work.) The cons…going to the bathroom in public areas, not fun at all.

I realize I had largely removed my outfits from this blog…this is something I want to remedy, and of which I will address hopefully in another post soon! These are photos from the Fall. I’m wearing similar styled jumpsuits for the Winter, but with boots and a thick coat now.

I had become a bit obsessed with the weirdest thing a few months ago. I got it into my head that I NEEDED to find a vintage Simpsons sweatshirt. Don’t ask me why, I can’t even remember why. And the problem was that it was hard to find. Mostly because I’m neurotic about buying things online you cannot try on (and return easily.) Half the time, the sweatshirts were too big – mostly because they were for men. Or they were really expensive – because they were rare and funny. Sometimes they were just too worn or weird (aka dingy) looking – not what I was going for…I ended up jumping for something I thought was cute. It did end up a tad bit too small for me (okay, really small.) It fits more like a top than a sweater, but with our mild San Francisco summers, it works.

It’s hard to read what Bart is saying, but it’s the famous “Jingle bells, Batman smells…” line! I’m actually shocked to realize I haven’t shown this skirt more here on the blog – I practically lived in it last year!

Spring transition

There’s something awesome but frustrating about dressing for this season – you’re just stuck! Not really Winter or Spring. So you just go with the flow. I recently found this electric blue dress that’s really adding a pop of color to my everyday wardrobe. So this weather called for this scarf shawl thing that’s almost like wearing a blanket! Because when that wind hits sometimes, it chills you to the bone and you wish you could teleport yourself back home.

This isn’t a typical outfit for me – so I’m using new colors and shapes to experiment for a new year!

I have been on a serious roll at the thrift store! And finding some awesome gems to add to my wardrobe in terms of both quality and adding COLOR!

This is an outfit of pieces I found on the same thrift store visit, in different departments, but just seemed to work well together! I would have never pictured myself adding much more vintage to my wardrobe again. I used to have my closet organized vintage hanging on one side, new on the other, split right down the middle. As I grew older, my vintage slowly disappeared for more vintage “inspired” pieces. Eventually, the vintage half has now become a tiny slice of the closet instead. I think losing weight had a big part of departing with some beloved clothing – it also didn’t inspire me at the same level it once did.

But now…look! I’m finding some more interesting vintage that instead “inspires” modern!
