top: unsure resale from Crossroads
skirt: Anthro clearance
moccasins: Target
necklace: gift and Unpossible Cuts
My aim when getting dressed on the weekend is to wear things that I can not wear to school. Saturday and Sunday are when I bust out the short skirts. And sheer tops apparently. Man, I really went for it in this outfit. Lace top and short skirt. Scandalous!
 Obviously, it is not the weekend right now. I wore this two weeks back. Not having a camera, working, and my commute are the trifecta conspiring to keep me from blogging. But I win this round, all because I am too busy (lazy) to post photos on days that start with S.

brutal honesty


jacket: Banana Republic resale
top: JCrew
skirt: Target
wedges: Dolce vita for target
sunglasses: Walgreens

Today I forgot my makeup, which I normally put at stop lights and in the parking lot once I get to school. You gotta love kids for their honesty. I now know, under no uncertain terms, that I look like hell without makeup. I got comments all day long about how tired I look or why did I look so different today. By the end of the day, I retreated into sunglasses and swore to never forget my makeup again.

PTA meeting tonight. At school for more than 12 hours. Enough said. Good night.

Also, these awful grainy photos are really pushing me towards getting a camera b/c the camera phone isn't cutting it!

bang bang

dress: Vintage
belt: H&M
cardigan: Target
 platforms: Jeffery Campbell
necklace: gift

Here it is! The new hair :) I have been wanting to go back to more blunt bangs for a while now. Cut my hair short a few years ago and as I have been growing it out, I grew my bangs out. I have been waiting for my hair to get long so I could cut them. I am happy with how it turned out. I needed a change and I am finding that it is changing how my clothes look on me. I pass my reflection and wonder, "who is that, with the bangs?" I am not quite used to this new look yet but I do like it.

EBEW Coral Pants

cords: J Crew
button down:Target
top: Noble U
oxfords; Frye resale
necklace: Crossroads
blazer: from Dillards forever ago

Everybody Everywear: Colored Pants. The timing on this could not have been better. Considering my self-proclaimed preference for skirts and dresses, I have been liking pants more and more lately. Heck, I just doubled my jeans collections this weekend when I bought two pairs of jeans resale at Crossroads. So, I was excited to wear these coral cords for EBEW. So impractical. So pretty. So fun. They are coral!!! I was attempting to tone them down with something neutral or plain on top but that obviously didn't happen. I was not feeling low key. I have been doing a lot of layering lately, which tells me I am ready for cooler temperatures. Luckily, in the bay area all I have to wait for is nightfall and BAM! cool weather. Sometimes I love it, sometimes I hate it.

I seem incapable of anything beyond halting, incoherent rambling this evening. Sorry :)

view from the bumper

skirt: Pins and Needles resale
button up: GAP
sequin tank: JCrew clearance
wedges: Lela Rose for Payless clearance
necklace: Unpossible Cuts
bag: Let Them Eat Cake from Sway
sunglasses: Walgreens

I broke my camera! My camera that I just got this January! Ugh! The tripod tipped over and the camera hit right on the extended lens. A totally random thing. I am careful with my camera and didn't realize the tripod was unbalanced. The lens didn't crack or anything. It wouldn't go back in at first so I messed with it...trying to straighten it out. That worked for a couple weeks but now it has gone in and won't come back out.
It's just a little canon powershot, nothing fancy. Most of what I read online says fixing it will cost more than it is worth. So now I have to decided if I want to suck it up and get a new camera.

That explains the crappy photos lately. I have had to use my phone and get creative with propping it up. Today I discovered that, in good light, the bumper of my car makes a perfect stand.

Check out my new shoes. I have been coveting these since I saw them on Kendi's blog but $60 is way too much to spend on shoes from Payless. Saturday I hit the jackpot because this entire line by Lela Rose was on massive clearance at the Westfield Payless. Woo freakin hoo!

wine stain

 dress: H&M
cardigan: Banana Republic resale
flats: Target
necklace: Unpossible Cuts
purse: gift from Jaynet :)

Napa wine tasting at V.Satui. I was the driver and I managed to spill wine on my dress within seconds of sitting down on our lovely little picnic blanket. I have always belted this dress since it is quite full because of all the layers. I felt kind of like I was wearing a tent. And that if the breeze picked up this dress would fly up over my head. Luckily that did not happen. However, I am pretty sure I repeatedly flashed the world every time I got on or off our blanket.

pinafores are tough right?


 dress: Forever 21 cearance
tights: GAP sale
wedges: Forever 21
jacket: resale
necklace:Unpossible Cuts


Not sure where this outfit came from since I spent the day in my classroom getting ready for week two. I went to get dressed and my mind said, "pinafore and leather jacket please" so I complied. That being said I love this mix of tough and sweet. Like me :)  Okay, I wish I were tough. Really this is me trying to pretend like I'm tough. Did it work? Just say yes.

I have been obsessed with this bird love shadowbox necklace for a while now but had to promise not to wear it on the blog until they released it on their etsy site. Well, it's up, so get one while the getting is good!

getting it right


 dress: New Bohemia
blouse: Target
wedges: Dolce Vita for Target
pirate bunny pin: Unpossible Cuts

I didn't get to post this yesterday because I was far too busy sneezing my brains out. Yuck! I have loved this dress despite never really like the ways I have worn it. I think I have been trying too hard to frump it up or toughen up the overwhelming amount of pink polka dots. This is the first time that I have liked an outfit with this dress. Hooray!
Oh, and I am wearing my new bunny pin to death. Love it, love it, love it!

sick chic

When you are on the last possible day you can go without washing your hair...this happens

I am so behind on posts! I had a busy weekend and I have trouble posting on Saturday and Sunday anyways. So hold tight while I get caught up.

Been feeling sick so today I went for something easy and comfortable. Long floral dress, flats. This dress was a resale steal from Crossroads. I can't wait for winter so I can layer it up with a scarf and some tall boots!
