Never be afraid to venture to other departments while shopping. Sometimes I can’t find exactly what I’m looking for, so I search the men’s or plus size section. This button down mini is a 1X and lightly sewn to fit my body better.
I am finally back in San Francisco. As much as I loved seeing my family, being in the middle of nowhere makes your brain go numb. Baker Beach is definitely a spot that I will race to on my down time.
Polka-dots have been in my wardrobe since I was a little girl. It’s a pattern that never ages, and you always look happier in them. Marketplaces, festivals, and brunches are places I would recommend wearing this cut. Keep scrolling to see more images of how I styled this dress!
Wind is either a nuisance or a welcomed addition while you are on set. During my blog photoshoots, there is only me and the photographer. We do not have help setting up the shot, and it is all organic. The wind was a bit strong, but it captured the raw beauty of this place.
An outfit that makes you feel a bit more confident is something to learn from. Find out what elements make you stand taller, and incorporate them into other outfits! For me, it has always been having extra fabric flowing behind me. I love a little pop of color. This is how I incorporated both of those styles into one outfit.
Another combination of contemporary and vintage that’s perfect for the beach. This stretch-runch top and vintage shorts are the perfect pieces to layer with a swimsuit.
Contrasting patterns are like eye-candy when it comes to outfits. It adds and eclectic and curious element to a look, and it leaves people staring (in a good way). There are some rules to follow when putting the ensemble together.
Capturing the extreme sun of August in a comfortable way is done by wearing earth tones. Black certainly does the trick, but that can be too intense. Tan and brown tones are just dark enough the keep you at a comfortable temperature and create an upscale day to night look.
When people hear the word “vintage”, there are thoughts that link to it. People often think of hipsters or old musty clothing. I wear vintage 4 out of the 7 days of the week, and most of my outfits lean toward the modern look. It’s not about the individual piece, it’s how you style it.
Wearing a head-to-toe look from your favorite brand or store always gives you an extra boost of confidence. This white ensemble is from my favorite store, Mercy Vintage in Oakland, CA.
