Tag Archives: what i wore
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!
Another summer look from last week (before winter decided to come back to NYC) featuring the result of my long search for a maxi dress! I wasn’t sure that a maxi length would work for a somewhat petite gal like me, but I think this one looked great on me – what do you think?
Maxi dress from Old Navy, necklace from China, sandals from Aldo.
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.
I don’t have a good full-body shot of my outfit but I really loved this look so I’m sharing this photo:
