Happy Friday! Wearing one of my favorite tanks that just came back in stock – the “I Only Date Super Heroes” tank top! And coincidentally enough, I’m also wearing almost all Forever 21 clothes in this post. I may not be 21 anymore, but their clothes are seriously fun and soo affordable that I’d be surprised if there are any women out there who don’t own something from that store! But buyers be warned – you definitely have to be picky about what you buy there. T-shirts and tanks, definitely. Leggings, definitely. Jackets and pants, depends on the fabric and quality. Shoes? Maybe not. Unlike many stories I hear, I personally have never had anything “fall apart” on me or get “destroyed” in the wash, but then again, I am very picky about what I buy from there, so definitely be careful! That’s why they say, “you get what you pay for”!
The weather has been very fickle in the Bay Area these days with it being sort of hot, but still windy and cold, which makes for much indecisiveness when it comes to choosing an outfit. Layers is one solution, but for today’s post, I decided to mix it up by wearing my winter boots with my summery floral dress. This high low dress is conveniently short enough in the front to just barely cover my over the knee boots and pairing it with a light jacket will help keep you balanced when the temperature changes. On top of that, I’m also wearing my winged key Harry Potter necklace that I picked up from the Whimsical Alley, which in my opinion goes perfectly with floral print. I got to check out their booth at Wondercon and can’t wait to visit the store next time I’m in the LA area! It’s a must see store for any Harry Potter fan!
It was love at first sight when I saw this skirt. Something about the old style comics with their red, yellows, blacks, and bright blues seems to never go out of style. The iconic blue eyes of the blonde haired woman who always seemed to be in a tragic state is such a familiar piece of art, which I believe is based off of Roy Lichtenstein’s art (can anyone confirm?) Regardless, I love that this skirt brings so much life and “pop” into an outfit and it’s definitely a must have for any of you comic-loving ladies out there!
I swear I’m not trying to look like a wannabe undercover agent in today’s outfit, but sometimes I just feel like wearing all black and calling it a day. I decided to fight the urge to wear all black though and threw in my skinny camo pants to mix it up. And since one might not think of camo jeans as the most professional thing for the work place, adding a blazer and some booties adds a nice balance to the outfit.
As Rob Lowe on Parks and Rec might say, “I am… literally.. ‘itching’ to get out of my winter sweaters.” I decided to take advantage of the good weather we’ve been having and finally bring out my sandals! Feeling like I was about to take a trip to the Hamptons or something, I decided to wear my striped maxi skirt with a preppy denim linen shirt. I have especially been loving this shirt for lots of layering and love that it’s so light and goes with everything. Here’s to great spring weather this weekend! Happy Friday!
I recently attended the San Jose Toy Show, which not only included tons of old and new toys, but also had a few craft booths, one of which was jewelry and other hand made goods from Raven Jade Creations. The moment I saw teeth, bones, claws, and other oddities on her jewelry stand, I was completely mesmerized. She has an amazing gift of making decayed objects look beautiful and wearable. Sure, you might need to get over the fact that you are wearing real animal bones or claws at first, but once you do, you won’t regret it.
Seeing as how spring break is right around the corner, I thought it would be appropriate to post a vacation worthy outfit. On a side note, I think spring break should be a mandatory vacation for everyone, not just people in school! But back to vacation wear… when I’m on vacation, beachy dresses, fun prints, and a casual hat are must have. I’m also a big fan of layers so a chambray shirt or loose white button up is always a good idea to bring so you can throw it on if it gets windy or chilly. And if you like to pack light like I do, being able to mix and match your pieces will go a long way. Hope everyone travels safe this month!
