My Current Go To Outfit

 

fullsizeoutput_2577Hello readers! Long time, no chat!

I wanted to share with you one of my favorite go-to outfits lately when I have felt like just throwing something together and heading out the door. For me, a simple T-shirt and skirt can be so comfy but also cute when you throw on some accessories like a denim jacket and a hairpiece.

Can I just have a minute to talk about how much I have been LOVING bandanas the last few months? They are seriously so versatile! I love throwing my unruly curly hair into one, or using one to jazz up a handbag. If you are interested, Carly the Prepster did a great video about how to fold scarfs and bandana on her YouTube channel.

My love for the knotted T-shirt has been pretty well documented on this blog, and I love that Madewell is now selling T-shirts that have tails in the front that are meant to be knotted! It creates the perfect fitted look without adding too much bulk. What have been some of your go-to outfits lately?

Hi Readers,

This week has just flown by! It’s been a pretty productive one for me! Especially since I got a job offer! It’s just part time but it will be good to be making some extra money and feeling more productive since fall has been kind of meh for me. Definitely looking forward to Thanksgiving and an exciting December ahead!

A little preview of something coming to the blog next Monday

Here are some things that I have been loving this week:

  1. Taylor Swift’s SNL Performance of “Call It What You Want”: If you have been following this blog for a while, then you know that I am a pretty big Taylor Swift fan. “Call It What You Want” is by far one of my favorite songs from Reputation. I loved the SNL performance of the song.
  2. Tiffany’s Blue Box Cafe: Alright, I know I’ve been giving Tiffany’s a lot of love in these posts lately, but the holidays are the time where they really shine! They recently launched the Blue Box Cafe in New York City. I can’t wait to have breakfast at Tiffany’s the next time I am in NYC!
  3. Kate Spade Miss Adventure: This marketing campaign for Kate Spade is always so clever! I am loving the most recent Miss Adventure with Anna Faris and Rosie Perez.
  4. John Mayer’s New York Times Feature: Okay, I read this about six months too late, but I really enjoyed this piece on John Mayer. I saw him in concert this summer and it’s been interesting to watch as he has tried to move into a new, brighter chapter. Rooting for you John!
  5. Woke Charlotte: Every Outfit on Sex and the City is one of my all-time favorite Instagram accounts. I love the new series that they are doing with “Woke Charlotte” which creates lines Charlotte should have said in the original show to call out problematic language.

Have a great weekend!

Vlogtober

 

Hello!

I just wanted to write a quick post today to share my October monthly vlog. I have really been enjoying experimenting with vlogs and video editing. It can be tough work but I’ve already learned a lot! For October I recorded on and off for the month and then edited everything into one long vlog at the end of the month.

I hope you enjoy:

Penchant for Pumpkins

Earlier in October, I went down to Half Moon Bay with some friends to go to a pumpkin patch. It was such a fun day complete with a hay maze and lots of festive flair! You can actually see part of that day in my Vlogtober here:

For this day I wanted to wear something very fall feeling, but it was still pretty hot in the Bay Area so I had to wear something pretty light. I opted for this red plaid skirt from Banana Republic that I got a few years ago. It’s one of my favorite fall pieces with its fun full skirt, and the pattern was perfect for a day on the farm! I paired it with a tank top made out of an oatmeal colored thermal material. This was actually the only piece that I picked up from my trip to the Mall of America and it has proven to be a great option during a warm fall. Of course, no fall outfit is complete without some booties!

Hello friends!

This past week has been a fun one, with many out and about activities in The City. I checked out the Aladdin show at The Orpheum which was fun for the Goldstar ticket price, but not a must-see. I also went to the Asian Art Museum’s exhibit on Korean couture, which proved a little disappointing since the historical garments featured are all modern reproductions. Looking forward to spending some time outside this weekend as the weather clears up.

What fun plans do you have for Veteran’s Day weekend?

Here are a few things I have been loving this week:

  1. The “Queen’s” Last Hurrah: Such a random thing, but United Airlines had a goodbye party for its last 747 flight from SFO to Hawaii and it looked so cute! I have been flying on United since I was a little girl, and this party made me reminiscent of the flights I have taken on the 747 jet. And honestly, how cute is the lei that they put on the airplane?!
  2. Sufjan Stevens’ Song: I am such a fan of this angsty artist and I am loving his new-ish song “Mystery of Love“. It is a little whiny and definitely not for everyone (my brother who is a fan usually of Sufjan promptly professed his dislike for the song when I shared it with him) but personally, I’ll be listening to it all weekend.
  3. Meryl Streep Meets Anna Wintour at Vogue: Vogue’s YouTube channel is easily one of my favorites, and I love this recent video with two powerhouse women! They talk about their work and their belief in a future female POTUS, plus there’s plenty of Devil Wears Prada references!
  4. A Confused Cow: I think cows might be my favorite animal they always seem so playful and sweet (if not already plainly obvious by that sentence, I don’t eat red meat). This video of a cow who thinks he is a dog brought an instant smile to my face.
  5. Bow Shoes from Eugenia Kim X Banana Republic: How perfect are these heels for the holidays? The price is not so perfect, but I’ll be keeping an eye out for them if they go on sale!

 

Fall Watermelon Hues

fullsizeoutput_2520Dressing for fall is such a struggle for Northern Californians! It stays warm here basically until Thanksgiving, so it can be hard to pull out the cords and the thick sweaters!

I have loved this outfit throughout the warm fall because of the beautiful rich color of the green skirt matched with the dusty pink top. The outfit is also perfect for warm weather with the loose flowy skirt!
