What I Wore: Car Shopping

IMG_8034

This kind of thing doesn’t exactly come around often so I felt that I had to dress appropriately. My car was nearing 16 years old this year and I’ve been saving to get a new car for about a year now. The straw that broke the camel’s back was a few weeks ago when I got home from work. I came home just fine and wanted to drop a few things off at home before running out for a few errands. A couple of minutes later I walked out ready to go, got in the car, and it wouldn’t start. That was about 3 weeks ago. It still won’t start. My family could use the car for my brother that just turned 16 so it all kind of led me to buying a new car.

So I bought a new car.

A brand new car.

And I’m thrilled about it! I’ve been loving how it drives and how comfortable it feels. The heated seats were just the cherry on top. Enjoy! 🙂

What I Wore: Rain, Rain Go Away

IMG_7981

Just kidding. Please stay. I love rain more than any Californian should. I even wish for it sometimes. Well, a lot of the time. See being in California we get a lot of sunshine and thats awesome but sometimes I want a stormy day with pouring rain and thunder and dark, ominous clouds and hot chocolate and cuddles on the couch. You get the idea. Rain just makes me happy. I get giddy like a 3 year old and stare out the window up into the sky as if its the first time I’ve ever witnessed those little drops falling from the sky. Something about it is so soothing yet wildly exciting, especially when thunder really roars through the sky. I’ve lived in places were stuff like this exists and I will tell you I miss it from time to time.

That being said, I’ll be the first to admit that I definitely don’t want it every day. A few days a month would be perfect. Please and thank you. Girlfriend needs a reason to wear cute rainboots, you know what I’m sayin? (and maybe a reason to justify buying a third pair…)

What I Wore: Sunshine on a Cloudy Day

Last week Benjamin and I finally had a day off together. It feels like its been weeks, which it has, since our work schedules don’t exactly coincide. I used to work weekends, he doesn’t. So we hadn’t had a day together in a while. We had grand plans of hanging pictures in the apartment, going on a run, and running errands. But after a lazy morning, which was awesome by the way, we ended up spending the afternoon at Nordstrom Rack. Which was TOTALLY not my doing in the slightest bit. Ok, yeah, it was. (Sorry Ben!) But, not to worry. It is a thing of the past now because I’ve just started my newly promoted position!!! I’m absolutely thrilled about it!

Anyways, the outfit. To me this feels like a fresh twist on classic pieces.  You should know that I am obsessed with the color yellow. I know its not for everyone but I just can’t help but be happy when I’m basically wearing sunshine. Actually this whole outfit is full of favorites. Stripes = favorite. J.Crew cardigans? Can’t go wrong. Top it off with the comfiest ballet flats and dainty necklace. Enjoy the look!

What I Wore: Pockets

IMG_3405

I had intentions of photographing this outfit of mine after I got home from work one night but was promptly greeted by a thick layer of fog the minute I stepped out the door. In an effort to be a good boyfriend Benjamin took the pictures anyways and after a few shots we realized the moisture in the air was reflecting with the flash to create this “bubble-ish” effect on all of the photos. I didn’t hate it so we continued and ended up with these cool shots. I actually kind of like them. And I actually kind of love this outfit. Like, a lot. The necklace is a favorite and has been on repeat since the day I got it. And can we talk about pockets?! Hello, amazing skirt. Can every dress/skirt please have pockets? Note to self: Sew pockets into everything. In fact, self, sew things just with the intent of making something with pockets.

What I Wore: A Celebration Lunch

Around here we celebrated Benjamin’s swearing in for quite some time. A few weeks ago my grandma, mom, Benjamin and I went out to lunch. We introduced Ben to one of our favorite hidden lunch spots. We enjoyed a delicious lunch (I got truffle mac and cheese) and walked around the area for a few hours. I’m hoping that Benjamin’s parents can come visit us because I’d love to take them there. Here’s what I wore:
