Salt and Sea Urchins

October 3, 2013

On Monday, the other Jessie and I explored the Sutro Baths. It was quite fun climbing around in these ruins with the ocean roaring in the background. Such a perfect, foggy day for a little OOTD post!IMG_8864

I love this dress. No, I love, love, LOVE this dress. I found it on a rare trip inside a Forever 21 (I usually shop online. The bright lights and obnoxious music make me feel like I’m gonna have a seizure). I was looking for the “great white whale” of F21: an all cotton dress; something I can wear all year round. When I saw this, I did a double take. Not only is it 100% cotton, it’s gingham AND it has pockets! I had to restrain myself from buying it right then and there. I’m glad I had practiced patience. It went on sale a few months later. Good things come to those who wait!


I bought these socks on a whim a couple of years ago at a little boutique in the Haight. It’s funny how something you buy “just because” turns into something you wear on a regular basis. IMG_8930 Of course I’m wearing my arrow bracelet. I’m hardly ever without it. The other day I re-discovered this cute little bow bracelet from JewelMint that I was obsessed with for a hot minuet. It’s pretty stinking cute, even with the brass showing through. IMG_8955IMG_8967I got this Burning Torch jacket when I was still working for my most favorite consignment shop in the whole wide world, Urbanity. It was a little pricey at the time, but It’s become one of my wardrobe staple. Everybody needs a military style piece in their closet! This one has a little dash of sweetness to it and I love the big pocket on the back. IMG_8981IMG_9006 Those of you who are VERY detail oriented might have noticed that I chopped my mop! It’s a bit more maintenance than I’m used to (I hadn’t used a blowdryer for years), but I love it! For those of you looking for a hairdresser in the city, book my girl Meghan! She’s an all around amazing gal and a fantastic stylist to boot!IMG_9037Jess and I loved shooting with this graffiti wall! This is about as grunge as I’m ever going to get. I like how the wall seemed to give my overall look a little more edge.IMG_9044

This pose is just so Elvis. Thank you! Thank you very much!

    Can we say your whole look really brings out your lipstick? As in it lets your face be the focus and we loved that!

    Besides the story of acquiring this dress, and the fact that it looks so lovely on you.. we loved seeing you wear a parka over it! Cute look!

    Love, Wink n Pout
