This past summer I had a job offer in China that I was seriously considering. My good friend gave me this shirt for my birthday, hoping it might sway me to stay. I had actually already made up my mind to turn down the China job. I do hella love Oakland :) and I just wasn't ready to leave it.

My Dad had a 24 hour layover in San Jose yesterday, so I drove down to meet him. It was cold and i just wanted to be casual and warm. Looking at the photos makes me think I need a new pair of jeans...a decent pair that fit well. I also want clarify that the pockets of the chambray shirt I have on under look like weird, off center nipples but are not. I have on way too many layers to have a T.H.O. problem.

Sweater: Old Navy sale $18
Jeans, Belt: Target
T-Shirt: gift
Chambray button up: GAP clearance $18
Boots: Steve Madden clearance $50


  1. i'm always trying to figure out how to make casual/comfy still look cute/stylish. usually i can only do one or the other. i think you do both fabulously with this outfit! (and i'm so glad you chose to stay in oakland...!)

  2. Thanks! Knowing I am posting what I wear on this blog totally motivated me!!! Otherwise sweatpants and mocassins would have my go to casual outfit :)
