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 past week has been absolutely gorgeous and summery in New York! This is one of my many spring outfits of the week, and almost every piece was thrifted!
Yellow tank top from Ardene, vintage grey pleated skirt from Goodwill, vintage jacket from Buffalo Exchange, black flats by Rocket Dog from Clothing Xchange in Nashville, sunglasses from Payless.
Starting to feel like spring!
Floral dress by Moon Collection from Lulu’s, grey tights from H&M, black flats by Rocket Dog and black boyfriend blazer thrifted from Clothing Xchange in Nashville, free sunglasses from a campus event.
Sundressed up for an afternoon at the park :)
Floral dress from Lulu’s, flip flops and sunglasses from Payless, bag from China.
Oh boo. It’s snowing again. Just when I thought that spring was coming when the snow from the previous snowfall had melted. Campus turned into a horrible slushy mess. Why an Ivy League institution has such terrible drainage I will never understand. Sigh. While I’m hating on Columbia, let me just rant about the rodent issue too. My suite has mice. We’ve known that we had mice since first semester, and so far we’ve had 4 mice:
So as if that wasn’t bad enough, lo and behold, we get a RAT this week. In the bathroom. A huge living rat. And we called housing and some sketchy dude comes with a club and beats the poor creature to death while I listened to its squeals of death (my room is right across from the bathroom). And after he leaves, we find rat blood left on the bathroom floor. Ewww. So we call again to get it cleaned up. Why does nobody at this bloody school give a crap about disease carrying pests like these running around where its students sleep? Seriously! If anyone reading this is considering coming to Columbia, don’t live in the LLC until they renovate majorly or at the very least fix all the holes in the walls. And do pick a high floor.
On a completely different note, I can’t keep up drawing my daily post-its anymore :( So here are the last handful I’ve done:
To end on a happier note, I’m going to share one of my best recent purchases. I know that these Chanel half-tint sunglasses are like last last season, but I love them so much:
But of course, Chanel isn’t exactly budget friendly, so imagine my joy when I found these much more affordable replica!
Now if only the weather would cooperate.
