OOTD: Velvet is back!

Velvet has made a comeback, and I couldn’t be happier. Bring back corduroy too and I’m set for life.

Thought I’d feature an outfit of the day because I haven’t posted one of those in ages. It was one of those rainy, semi-chilly days here in California where I did nothing but sit with a friend over coffee, and watch the grey clouds roll in. It definitely beats those Canadian winters, that’s for sure. But I can’t seem to break the chill in my bones lately (I’m constantly cold!), so a warm cuppa was definitely needed this day, and maybe a pair of socks ;)

[Items featured]
Zara Jeans | Suzy Shier faux leather jacket | Dior nail polish
Target sweater | Brooks Imperial sneakers
Fossil Saddle Bag (no longer available, but: similar)

Aren’t my shoes just rad though? I love ’em. Thanks for sending me a pair, Brooks!

Cozy fireside outfit

cozy-fireside-outfitAll I want is to be warm. That’s not much to ask, ha!

My ideal night in would be curling up with a hot drink and cozying up to my husband with all the blankets layered on top of me. He emits quite a bit of heat, so perhaps I don’t need that many blankets.

Because I don’t have a full-time job right now, I often don’t put much effort into my outfits anymore. I remember that I used to pick out my entire weeks outfits on Sunday nights. Shoes, socks, undies, and bras included. Now I occasionally wear the same outfit two days in a row, because no one saw me. Hahaha, man what happened to me. Hey, I miss doing OOTDs on the blog. I think I’ve said that every time I post one, though too.

Let’s get to a cozy fireside outfit.walking

Jacket| Uniqlo ultra light down

Disclaimer: Please don’t feel overwhelmed and think that I expect you guys to make purchases when I feature brands and link them (no affiliate links this time), I understand that consumerism is at an all time high and many people (including myself) feel like everyone and everything is posting about what you should buy, what you need next, etc. This is a fun post in collaboration with a clothing brand that sent me some cute clothes that I wouldn’t otherwise be able to afford.

OOTD: Coffee dates

OOTD-Coffee

Drinking-CoffeeEvery few weeks or so, a couple of us local Bay Area Bloggers get together for coffee.

hot-coffeeVero’s Coffee was the spot where the four of us met up this time. We explored downtown San Jose together, snapping OOTD pictures too.

holding-pursesI can’t wait for the next one! It was a fun afternoon filled with tons of laughter, and public changing of outfits.

blue-wallI wasn’t exactly sure how to pose for OOTD shots since I usually have only 2 or 3 to choose from when I do them myself with a self-timer. But I had a mini-lesson on how to pose my body and angle it for the camera. Thanks for all the tips Elisabeth! :)
