Woohoo! First What I Wore post in SF! Several things to note about this outfit:
1. I love pairing colorful cardigans with more neutral, muted colors (as well as the reverse – neutral cardigan to tone down a colorful top. I just love cardigans I guess).
2. Bright kelly green goes really well with navy.
3. I’m in love with ankle boots right now. They look great with cuffed jeans!
Tank top from Banana Republic, cardigan from H&M, old jeans, ankle boots from Taget, bag from Payless, glasses from Tiffany & Co, old necklace, tiered trench coat from eBay (similar to a Burberry one I obsessed about a couple years ago)
PS: Sorry about the bad lighting, it’s hard to find a good time/spot in the apartment that has good natural light!
You might have noticed that I haven’t really done any outfit posts since my move to SF. This is due to several reasons. One, I don’t really have much reasons to go out most days, so I get lazy and just lounge around in leggings and t-shirts and sweaters all day if I know I’m going to be in the apartment most of the day. Two, the weather, climate, and geography in SF is really hard to dress for. It can be freezing in July and hot in October. It could be bright and sunny in one neighborhood and foggy and cold in another. It’s nice and warm in the afternoon but windy and chilly at night. And the hills make comfortable shoes really important. Many days I just find myself unable to come up with a reasonable outfit for the day. Other days I end up grabbing another layer or a scarf that doesn’t match the rest of my outfit right before I leave. So I haven’t quite gotten the hang of dressing appropriately for this city yet. I’ll get there someday.
That said, here are a couple of the outfits I have managed to capture on camera. This was on an unseasonably warm day in July:
Vintage top from mom’s closet; silk maxi skirt, belt, and sunglasses thrifted from Goodwill; sandals from Aldo; necklace that’s actually a watch from Disney
This is a more typical summer outfit:
Sweater from my aunt; dress/tunic from store in Canada; leggings from Seductions; Bucco boots; bag thrifted from Goodwill; free sunglasses from college career fair
Now that it’s fall and the weather should stabilize to a certain degree of coolness, I hope I can have an easier time dressing. Fall is actually my favorite season for fashion; I just love boots, jackets and coats, scarves, and sweaters. So hopefully I will be doing more outfit posts soon!
This outfit ended up being unintentionally a little Robin Hood, a little school teacher.
White collared shirt from Charlotte Russe, camel hair sweater dress thrifted in Montreal, black tights from Calvin Klein, brown belt thrifted from Goodwill, boots from Payless.
I’d also like to show off my newest nail look:
I call this look 1001 Caribbean Nights, because I realized afterwards that it reminded me of a shimmering ocean under a night sky. I’m totally new to nail art, but I’m starting to get into it more. It’s so much fun treating your nails as little canvases where you can unleash your creativity!
First outfit post in a long time!!
Mint polka dot dress and white lace cami from China, black tights from eBay, black ankle boots from Modcloth.
A gorgeous day in New York, matched with an equally bright and cheerful outfit!
Graphic tee from China, hand-me-down black shorts, hot pink tights from Betsy Johnson, black boots from Modcloth.
New posts 2 days in a row?! You know it’s midterm season when I start doing things like this to procrastinate.
White lace cami from China, grey sweater from Delia’s gotten from a clothing swap, pleated plaid skirt from a second hand store, black wool tights, black boots from Modcloth, and heart-shaped pocket watch necklace from Disney.
I got these boots from the massive sale at Modcloth a few weeks ago for only like 13 bucks, so worth it!
Stripes and floral tiered dress, dark gray cardigan, black wool tights, brown motorcycle boots from Charlotte Russe, white flower earrings, and heart-shaped pocket watch necklace from Disney.
Drink something hot on this snowy day! Stay warm everyone :)
