I saw someone wearing this yellow skirt at the flea market and I of course fell in love… I wasn’t sure where she got it so I randomly checked forever 21. Of all places, they had it.. and for $22, what a steal. It’s obviously my new favorite skirt 😉
Nicholas got me this necklace for Christmas. Love it.
We tried walking to capture how flowy the skirt was..just combined the pics to make a gif which is kind of fun! (made with makeagif.com
Blouse: Forever 21
Shoes: Nine West from DSW

Today I’m currently loving colorblock items. Is this a recent new trend? because I feel like I’m seeing colorblock everywhere! Well, either way I am a big fan. Love the simple yet bold color statements of these pieces. Anyone else into colorblock?
Also noticed and happened to find tons of yellow
Did anyone catch the Golden Globe Award’s last night? Did a post about the fashion last year so thought I’d do another post this year with some of my personal faves 😉
It’s crazy that a whole year has passed, it feels like just yesterday I posted
about the fashion from the 2011 golden globe awards. Well this year I think this nude color still seems to be in – it is so classic, I don’t think it will ever get old! I thought Madonna looked gorgeous and the top of her blouse during her presentation was so pretty. The bottom of the dress is whatever. I do love the dress of Andrea Riseborough (not sure who she is but she is with Madonna) and
Zooey is so cute, she shouldn’t be on the worst dress list but I think she made it to a few. Not such a fan of any of these dresses. Natalie Portman’s looks like something my friend wore to prom back in 2001. I think some people liked Heidi but I just think it’s so plain, not golden globe fabulous.. What did you think of the fashion this year?
I’m headed to Altitude Summit
next week in Salt Lake City and have been pondering what to wear for the conference. It’s a fun event filled with bloggers and creatives from all over, and you know everyone will be dressed in their most fabulous wears. I used to really be into what I wore in high school, it was all stuff from abercrombie & fitch and hollister, heh. I don’t think anthropologie existed then, at least, not to my knowledge. But considering when my family members see me and sometimes say “what are you wearing?” or “you look like a bum” I may not have the best fashion cred anymore. I just wear what I like. Not sure if it’s in or out.
Well, here are some of my favorite “if I had an unlimited wallet” picks of my ideal wears. We’ll see what I actually come up with to wear 😉
Any recommendations on what to wear?
I came home with these pants the other week and Nick wasn’t crazy about the color. They’re yellow, my favorite. I guess they look sort of orange in the photos. What do you think of the pants? Sure, they’re bright, but I like them 😉 It was hot over the weekend, but it’s starting to cool down now so time to pull out the sweaters + coats.
My latest favorite necklace – a globe watch!
Globes, love. Functional? Even better 😉
This bag has a little lock and key, love! It’s all in the little details.
Before I loved yellow, I liked green. I am really loving pleated skirts and this vintage carpet bag I got from etsy, don’t you love etsy? There are so many fabulous things on there. Anyway, I was looking at my hair and I feel like it’s already a lot longer than even this photo
back from August, may need a trim or something! Hope you enjoy today’s outfit post!

We’re still having nice sunny weather. Sunday was a lovely day for the flea market so we headed out. They actually said there was supposed to be tons of rain over the weekend – I was super excited! But it didn’t happen. Sometimes I’m not sure about weather forecasts. I really wouldn’t mind if orange county started getting some winter-like weather. Even clouds would be nice 😉 What is the weather like where you live? Well all that to say, I haven’t packed up my skirts and summer shoes yet.
I decided to add my outfit color combo’s for each week. Hopefully it will serve as a little color inspiration for you!
Speaking of the flea market – I found a pair of swedish hasbeens on Sunday for only $22! That’s right. I was so excited. Does anyone own a pair? I heard about them from Ruby. They’re pretty rough condition but I don’t think I’ll ever be able to afford a pair on my own, so I’ll take what I can get 😉 If this weather keeps up, they’ll probably make it into an outfit post in the coming weeks. In the mean time, I will dream about these beauties.
Hope you enjoyed today’s outfit!
I totally want them in yellow! haha)

Back to weekly outfit posts! How is the weather where you live? It’s still sunny around here, I’m trying to wear dresses as long as I can (I love dresses!) but it’s starting to cool down. Maybe I’ll just keep wearing dresses through the winter, because winter here is still 70’s
I do hope the rain comes, it seems like it rains less and less each year.
mustard mustard mustard, I will never tire of you!
Shoes & Belt: Thrifted in Stockton
* Okay, these shoes are actually a half size too big, but they were only $4 – couldn’t pass them up!
Harmonica Necklace: Made by me
* Harmonica really plays, how fun is that? Would be so cool to actually learn to play a song 😉
Today I’m all about polka dots and flowers. I’ve always liked floral things, but have never really been into polka dots much. I like them a lot now! They’re sort of timeless, you can’t really go wrong with polka dots. What sort of patterns are you into lately?
Necklace: Made by me 😉
Today my entire outfit is thrifted! Well, except the watch. I wish I knew the brand of the skirt + top, but the tags were cut off when I found them at Crossroads
. Do you have a buy/sell/trade
store near you? I first found out about buy/sell/trade when I was in college and lived 30 seconds away from a buffalo exchange
. You can take your clothes and either sell them or get credit – so whenever I do a closet purge, I take the clothes over and get trade credit. It’s a pretty fabulous exchange.
This outfit features some of my favorites! My favorite watch, which is a Harry Potter watch 😉 found on ebay… and my favorite map bag, found while thrifting in SLC at Alt Summit back in January. I had always wanted a map bag, and there it was on the rack for $3 bucks! Thanks Utah!
Harry Potter Watch: ebay
Bag: Thrifted from Salt Lake City, Utah, $3
