Outfit log: Solid Tops with Patterned Skirts

Hmmm... what ever could these two outfits have in common?

In both looks I matched my top with the background color of the print of the skirt. Easy peasy.

My repetitive stress wrist injury is flaring up, so I'm keeping it short and sweet today. Hoping to be back with something more exciting tomorrow :)

Outfit log: Sweater Vest over Tunic

I have a deep and well-documented love of tunics, friends. They are the perfect top over jeans, and are made even snazzier with a vest. Oh, you want evidence? I'll give you evidence!

Right??? This outfit was perfect for casual Thursday (since tomorrow is a holiday) at the office. Also I wore leopard print two days in a row. Someone's feeling sassy!

Outfit log: Mom Style and Pink Leopard

I may have mentioned this before, but I got started taking outfit photos to keep in touch with my mom... by way of sharing our daily ensembles. And we still do virtually every day almost four years later! Since she's two hours ahead in Illinois, often her outfit will greet me when I wake up and check my phone, and this morning was no different.

Today, she fought the snow-covered ground where she lives with this magnificient hot pink blazer that she thrifted for a hell of a bargain! Mom taught me all I know about finding good clothes for good deals, so a big shout out to her :)

Inspired by that jacket's hot hue, I wore pink today too.

Mom also influenced my die-hard love of leopard print. So, this outfit's for you, mamacita! Love you! (And come to Oakland for some sunshine!)

Outfit log: Gray on Gray and Polka Dot Tights

Apparently Gracey and I were on the same wavelength this morning, as we both donned monochromatic matchy matchy looks.

Hers is much more colorful than mine, but I do love gray on gray! And polka dot tights.

Outfit log: Sweater and Midi

So after trying the bangs out flat and then more bouncy, I went for "curly," though they ended up more swoopy. I think I'll like 'em better curly when they're longer.

In other extremely interesting news, this was my outfit yesterday! Normally I'd don the getup with boots, but decided to go crazy and mix things up by wearing my new favorite shoes.

Outfit log: Bangin' Weekend

Still working on the bangs/curly hair look. I like them better today, which I believe is a result of just blow drying them and NOT using a flat iron on them. Though they look shorter. Ohhhh hair. There's just always so much to discuss!

Weekend Wear
Dance-posing (it's a thing) is a glorious side-benefit of taking my photos at home.

Also, I wore this today! To brunch with my pal Erika followed by a cleansing sage burning at Lake Merritt, which we were reclaiming (don't ask). It was great though :)

Hope y'all are having a bomb ass weekend!
