It may already be mid-November and on the verge of winter, but living in California, it’s just starting to feel like fall. And there’s nothing like a good sweater to kick off the drop in temperature. I’ve never been a fan of thick chunky sweaters and love that this one has a so cal surfer look and can be worn year round. This one may be a bit to “holey” to keep you truly warm in most places during the winter, but it will definitely do in California.
Sweatshirts to me have always been something super casual, something you wear when you’re at home, sick, or rushing to class. But these days, it’s so much more than that. Colored, patterned, or dressed up with a statement necklace, it can be a fun and versatile piece. This lace sweatshirt definitely brings new meaning to “casual Fridays”! Happy Friday,everyone!
The rise of geeky girl clothing has been amazing over the past ten years. What was once impossible to find your favorite TV show, movie, or video game on a girl sized shirt is now so easily available. Ashlie Eckstein saw potential in geeky girl clothing early on and spawned Her Universe, a sci-fi focused clothing brand for women. I remember my first Her Universe purchase clearly at SDCC many years ago. A cool looking Star Wars hoodie in my size?? I couldn’t believe my eyes! And to this day, that hoodie still remains one of my favorite Star Wars hoodies that I own. Since then, Her Universe has gone from just a store on the con floor to a very well known brand and today’s outfit post features one of their incredible dresses!
When people ask me about my blog, I always tell them that blogging is a “labor of love”. It’s a lot of work, little return, and you just have to do it because you love it. But once in a while, something cool happens. I’ve been a fan of Scott Campbell’s (aka Scott C’s) work for many years now and was recently given the chance to do an interview with him! I couldn’t believe my online ears and today, I’m proud to post my interview with him!
Halloween may have come and gone, but I wanted to take one last chance to post some pics a la Instagram. This year, I carved a record number of pumpkin (9 total!) and I hope that I don’t have to beat that number anytime soon. Since five of them were for a commission project, I was a bit sad I didn’t have any of my own so I decided to just do one more. One more led to another 3 and I think I’m all finally carved out. Phew! On with the pics…
The week leading up to Halloween is always a fun one – people start getting their decorations out, the pumpkin carvings start appearing in my feeds, and weekend Halloween parties pop up left and right. But for me, Halloween seemed to have lasted all month this year with my big pumpkin project, face painting at my church’s Halloween festival, and dressing up this past weekend as Wednesday Addams. I’m super excited for Halloween and even if you’re not one to dress up, maybe today’s outfit will get you in the spirit. It’s hard to be chic in orange and black, but maybe this outfit inspire some ideas. Happy Halloween everyone!
There’s nothing like a cute floral skirt to brighten up a gloomy day. The past couple days has been super foggy, cold, and well, a lot like fall weather I guess. Even though there has been an extreme lack of sun, wearing this fun floral printed skirt took my mind off of that. I especially like this one because it has a layer underneath that adds a little “poof” – a petticoat if you will. Plus the florals on black gives it a little bit of edge so that you can throw on your favorite pair of black boots.
