fast blood (18/30)
this really should be outfit 19, but since i didn't get a chance to document the one 30 for 30 outfit i wore over the weekend, i now have two outfits in my 30 for 30 vault that i can throw on the next time i have no idea what to wear.
anyway, this is what i wore today because it was supposed to be 75 degrees out today. which it was, at one point during the day. however, i had to cheat and throw on a short-sleeve cardi since i am technically not allowed to wear sleeveless things at work and i felt like it would be too warm to wear one of the long-sleeved variety in my 30.
then the fog rolled in. and boy, it rolled in fast and THICK.
cardi: moth (thrifted). top: banana republic (via crossroads). skirt: bcbg (thrifted). shoes: payless. necklace: forever 21.
yes, i was FREEZING when i was taking these, so i was super quick. (notice how the first sleeveless set was taken indoors). this is in sharp contrast to the 94-degree weather that i spent yesterday in.
i am trying to play around a little bit more in my color combinations, and i don't think i originally would have paired the orange/coral with the cherry red/hot pink, but i went for it and i kinda like it.
we spent our 4th at the alameda county fair in pleasanton, where summer actually exists. i can't remember the last time i actually was in 94-degree heat. this confirms my belief that i can never, ever live in LA again - too hot! i think the SF fog has spoiled me. anyways, despite the melting, we had a ball.
we ate deep-fried butter. i had it last year in san diego, and that one was pretty amazing, but this was of a different variety and not as good. oh well.
we then ooh-ed and aah-ed over some fireworks.
(i wish i had a tripod so i could play with long exposure, but these will do).
all in all, good day.
i've got the next 2 days off work...it's feels like i never get 2 days off in a row (unless i request them off to go somewhere) that i almost don't even know what to do with myself. i think i might need to catch up on some dexter. and sleep in until noon.
