Ferry Building Style...

About this Post: Happy Friday! We all made it! If you’re looking for a fun fall activity this Saturday, head on over to the San Francisco Ferry Building for fresh flowers, fresh coffee, and all sorts of goodies! Here are a few photos from this past weekend. Nils, Una and I went and picked out a variety of fruits and flowers. What are some fun activities you’ve done to celebrate fall?

Outfit: Most of this outfit is from Ann Taylor Factory store. I recently went to the Factory/Outlet stores in San Leandro. Nils and I popped in a bunch of the stores, one being Ann Taylor. When I walked in, all the clothing just immediately felt like my style. In fact Nils even said, “Uh Oh” because he knew that I was going to have a hard time leaving empty handed.

Well, I think I did pretty well at picking out a couple pieces. I chose this fall cardigan and literally haven’t been able to take it off. I’ll throw it on over my workout clothes when I go to pilates, or just over a basic T-shirt and jeans like this outfit. I decided to wear a fun pair of mules to the Ferry Building to dress the look up a little too. I hope you like it as much as I do!

 

Cotton Striped Pullover Sweater...

Happy Monday!  I know... I already did a post about this sweater. But I feel like it didn’t do it justice because I have literally been wearing non stop this fall. It’s super cute, comfy, and chic. It has the prettiest colors and holds it shape when wearing it. Just look at it! This time, however, I styled it a little differently. Here’s why.

The Bay Area’s weather is so unpredictable in October. Some days it can be blazing hot, while other days can be super cold. This very thing happened to me the other day. I woke up and checked the weather report. It said it would be cold and windy. So I chose this sweater, of course, a pair of black jeans and sneakers. Of course as the day went on, I started to get really overheated because the sun decided to sun that day after all. So I went home and exchanged my heat absorbing pants for for my favorite denim skirt. This way I could keep wearing this sweater, while staying cool. You get the best of both worlds.

Hope you have a great week!

How To Style Thrifted Clothing...

Happy Friday! I’ve been super super SUPER excited and giddy to share this post with you. Hopefully you saw the video of Sophia and I going to Thrift Town. We found some amazing things at amazing prices. The thing I was looking forward to most, however, was styling the pieces into my day to day outfits. So, I picked three of my favorite things I found and styled them here. 

I know they are primarily all black or darker outfits, but that’s just my style. Haha. My absolute FAVORITE find was the polka dot shirt. It’s something that I wouldn’t necessarily buy at full price because I liked the idea of it when I saw it more than the shirt itself I guess. As soon as I brought it home, I started styling it and wearing it with everything! My favorite thing to wear it with are these red shoes!

The second thing I got was this Men’s striped T-shirt. I thought it would be super cute to throw on for a casual outfit. I would wear this to study at a cafe or to class. I think it’s super cute!

Lastly, I got this pencil skirt and blazer. I was hesitant to buy both because they are more business wear. But since they were super cheap, I decided to get them and figure out how to style them. I’m still a little unsure where I would wear this out to… Probably a little fancier cafe like Ártis… We’ll see. I’m super excited to try wearing them!

Lastly, this blazer was only $2! I took the shoulder pads out because it was a little bulky. But in the end, it turned out super cute. I’m excited to wear it with this skirt or even style it down with my favorite pair of jeans and white sneakers. 

Tell me what YOUR favorite thrifted item I found is. Would you wear any of these?
Thanks for stopping by!
