this is what i wore yesterday:
cardi: forever 21, top: thrifted, skrit: h&m, tights + boots: target. belt: thrifted
yes, that is laundry hanging on a clothesline that you see in the background. my landlady apparently was drying her sheets and blankets when i went out to the backyard to take my outfit photos, and i liked how they looked so i just went ahead and used them as a background. don't judge me. i'm just glad that she didn't come outside while i was taking the photos, because that would've just been awkward. super awkward. just sayin'.
so i got this top at out the closet for half off and it ended up being less than $3. out of the thrift stores that i stop into, i tend to find the best deals at out the closet. i love this city because it has so many thrift stores in general, but i have the best luck at out the closet. the cardi is a yellow one that i FINALLY hunted down after looking for one forever! i wear it, like, all the time now. don't judge me. the skirt was pretty cheap from h&m, and is super soft and comfy.
i was hoping to go another day without having to wear tights, but when i was getting dressed for work in the morning it was super cold. pfffft. they lied to me - AGAIN!
anyways. this is what i wore today:
cardi: express. dress: esley (via ebay). boots: target. necklace: forever 21 .
my boss thought that i had a date today because i came to work "dressed up." nope, this is my lazy outfit. well, actually i noticed that i have been wearing a dress or skirt to work every day for almost a week.
besides, it actually was super warm today. i wore the boots instead of flats because when i checked weather.com to see how warm it was at the moment right before i left the house, they said it was 61 degrees. i went outside, and nope, it was not 61 degrees. THEY LIED TO ME AGAIN! it's kind of like a bad boyfriend that i keep turning to. anyways. today was one of those rare san francisco days when it was actually HOT (but by hot, i mean it was in the mid 70s or so). it's funny because i grew up in LA and mid 70s was actually "nice" (conversely, i thought 65 was "cold." don't judge). now the SF fog has skewed my thinking and i think mid 70s is HOT. i don't know how i'll ever survive 100 degree summers in so-cal again. good thing i don't plan on moving back - ever, if i can avoid it.
i actually took this photos on campus today. i didn't even have class today. i had to pick a secluded spot so i wouldn't get strange looks as i was taking these shots. i think i succeeded.
i got this dress on ebay. i have been finding some cute stuff on there sometimes - for pretty cheap! when i saw this dress - i love the colors, and the wrap detail of the top half - i knew i had to have it. it was something like $15 - score!
also, i know that i tend to wear the same three, very flat, shoes like 90% of the time. this is because my job requires me to stay on my feet all day (and i can't wear open-toed shoes). i have found that i have exactly three pairs of shoes that allows me to do this comfortably. if i have a shorter shift, i will sometimes branch out. i think i need to go shoe shopping. for more comfy, cute shoes!
in other news - i realized that i turn 26 in exactly a month from today. yikes. this year has just gone by waaaaay too fast!!
