SIMPLY STRIPED. Today's outfit: my mint green graduation dress reworn as a vintage flowy A-line skirt (5/30). Because of the extra frumpy side material on the side sweater (see here), I folded it in and made a tail in the back with my hairtie. These unique basketweave nude loafers were thrifted from Scholarshop and were $10 and in a small 5.5. The insoles are coming out but JJ helped me glue them back in and they have a sharp clacking heel. Loaferrrsss ... I do love. Spent a few hours at Peet's Coffee today drinking a London Fog (steamed tea with foamed milk) and reading Sherlock Holmes. I had some serious conversations with the barista and rented Men in Black from the Redbox nearby. This is as productive as a day at home gets because recently I've been glued to my pink Nintendo DS playing Pokemon Pearl *throwback* hahaha. Many, many more outfits planned with this dress. So many outfits, so little days in the year! is how I constantly feel as my wardrobe spills and spills at the seams.
I admit this was a bit too thick to wear for a 70 degree sunny day but whenever the breeze blows in San Diego it becomes quite chilly. After searching high and low and in my 5 still-not-unpacked suitcases, I finally found my camera remote in a box with my external hard drive. When will they invent some kind of GPS for our stuff around the house? Whoever that is will become uber rich. By sticking my tripod and camera on one side of my backyard and shooting into the sunlight while standing at the other end at around 5 PM, the photos were quite washed out but Lightroom took care of everything with a few clicks. With all the bright sunlight around here and longer days, finding some consistent shade is difficult before 7 PM and I'm tired of the garage door.
Please please please visit my blog sale and RSS it for new additions! I would love it if these pieces could find new loving homes too ; ) You would be my sartorial BFF.
