Outfit of the Day: Sept 23, 2019

All black was my go-to for the past year. But it never really suited me as much as earthy tones does. So in the next few upcoming OOTDs I’m bringin’ it back. For now, enjoy an all black ensemble.

I also realized it’s much easier (obviously) to take my outfit photos when he’s napping.

Outfit details:
Tank: Old Navy (they seem to bring this one back every year). I bought it in a size large and wore it while pregnant. Now I use
Leggings: prAna. These have lasted me 3+ years. I wear them at least 2-3 days a week, wash them in hot. Slapp’em in the dryer. Wash them in cold. Doesn’t matter, they don’t shrink, they don’t pill. They were a PR sample years back, but such a good piece. In fact, all my prAna clothes (which were mostly all PR sent/gifted) are fantastic quality that wash even better and still look brand new for years to come.
Shoes: Vince
Bag: Neiman Marcus

Outfit of the Day: Sept 20, 2019

Didn’t think that you’d hear from me again this quick – didja!!

So I found a good way to take self-timershots without a proper tripod and without having my phone dropping onto concrete.

My camera is seriously inside of a shoe, and that shoe is laying on the stroller. Lol. Hey, whatever works. Bebs was down for his nap and I had the stroller out, so I decided to see how it worked for me. And worked it did.

Although this is an incredibly basic outfit, it’s what I’ve been reaching for, and pretty much my daily “uniform”. Fall is coming up and I’m looking forward to start layering more.

Are you guys interested in all the OOTDs, or more of the layering ones. Cause I mean jeans and a tee guys, you can’t get any simpler than that.

Anyway, this is what I wore literally today. Thought I’d share. I’m using my Google pixel to take these shots and often I have “motion” turned on, which means it takes a variety of shots all within probably a half second, so I can save any of the shots in the motion – you know in case I blink, or if I’m squinting hard into the sun. I can omit those. However with those, if it’s not the original, and if it’s part of the motion, it’s like taking a still from a video, the quality isn’t great. But, I mean, it’s only an OOTD not like I’m taking super fantastic product shots here or anything. So I’ll let it go.

Outfit details
Crewneck tee: Target (in stores now!)
Jeans: Articles of Society  (they’re always on sale with the Nordstrom Anniversary sales)
Belt: Decades old from American Eagle
Shoes: Johnston & Murphy (seen here, and here)
Bag: My goodie bag from Neiman Marcus that I got here.

Weird blooper that I sometimes may not include. My keys bulging out of my arse pocket, and me thinkin’ a good ol’ hair flick would look cool. It did not. ha!!!

Up-close shot because this one was too cute not to share. He honestly just squat down behind my shoes, wouldn’t move, and kept saying “CHEESE!”. Sidenote, I need to clean the shoes obviously – but if you’re not aware you can easily clean sneakers with imitation (or the real thing…) Magic Eraser things! Just google melamine sponges. Or pick’em up at the dollar store.

So, there ya have it. Enjoy your weekend folks.

California has not changed me

As you read this, I’m either on an airplane or stuck in Chicago airport for 7 hours while I wait for another leg of my flight back to California.

I thought it was only appropriate to show an outfit of the day where I hung out with my new blogger bud Megan. She was also living in California but moved back to Toronto just a few short days ago. So sad I won’t be seeing her pretty face on the regular anymore. But I remember this day back in late April, one of our last few visits with each other.

You’ll notice an iced coffee in my hands for some of the photos – which I might add was the blandest wateriest iced coffee I’ve spent my money on. I’ll be talking about that spot on the blog at another point and time. Anyhoodle. Back to the blog post, it’s supposed to be all fashiony and such. I think this was somewhere in the Mission district of San Francisco. Either way, it was hot, it was fun, and I was awkward. You’ll see after the mirror selfies in this bathroom in San Francisco which has terrific selfie lighting. Just sayin.

Outfit details will be listed at the bottom of the post. Hint, everything is under $20.

Do yo like the shirt I’m wearing? I call it my zoo-keeper shirt. I kinda feel like one, wearing it. All rustic and worn-in looking, and it has that general feel to it with the green. AM I RIGHT?

San-Francisco-ootd

Awkward-dances-in-SFDon’t worry, California hasn’t changed me. I’m still doing the awkward dances in the street trying to shake my wiggles out and decide on how to post for the next picture. As soon as I saw this picture, I laughed so much I had to ask Megan if my mascara was running. I also may have let out a snort-laugh while I was at it. You know I’m laughing hard then. I immediately sent the picture to my husband and he wrote back “are you sitting on an invisible bench?” Cracked me right up.

Laughing-in-SFThen I started laughing again. Not knowing what to do with my body. I can be so awkward. :) But it’s all in good fun. We had a fantastic time laughing and carrying on trying to take some of the photos.

And to finish off the set, a few serious ones and a blooper of me putting my sunnies back on my shirt.
