Salt and Sea Urchins

On Monday, the other Jessie and I explored the Sutro Baths. It was quite fun climbing around in these ruins with the ocean roaring in the background. Such a perfect, foggy day for a little OOTD post!IMG_8864

I love this dress. No, I love, love, LOVE this dress. I found it on a rare trip inside a Forever 21 (I usually shop online. The bright lights and obnoxious music make me feel like I’m gonna have a seizure). I was looking for the “great white whale” of F21: an all cotton dress; something I can wear all year round. When I saw this, I did a double take. Not only is it 100% cotton, it’s gingham AND it has pockets! I had to restrain myself from buying it right then and there. I’m glad I had practiced patience. It went on sale a few months later. Good things come to those who wait!

I bought these socks on a whim a couple of years ago at a little boutique in the Haight. It’s funny how something you buy “just because” turns into something you wear on a regular basis. IMG_8930 Of course I’m wearing my arrow bracelet. I’m hardly ever without it. The other day I re-discovered this cute little bow bracelet from JewelMint that I was obsessed with for a hot minuet. It’s pretty stinking cute, even with the brass showing through. IMG_8955IMG_8967I got this Burning Torch jacket when I was still working for my most favorite consignment shop in the whole wide world, Urbanity. It was a little pricey at the time, but It’s become one of my wardrobe staple. Everybody needs a military style piece in their closet! This one has a little dash of sweetness to it and I love the big pocket on the back. IMG_8981IMG_9006 Those of you who are VERY detail oriented might have noticed that I chopped my mop! It’s a bit more maintenance than I’m used to (I hadn’t used a blowdryer for years), but I love it! For those of you looking for a hairdresser in the city, book my girl Meghan! She’s an all around amazing gal and a fantastic stylist to boot!IMG_9037Jess and I loved shooting with this graffiti wall! This is about as grunge as I’m ever going to get. I like how the wall seemed to give my overall look a little more edge.IMG_9044

This pose is just so Elvis. Thank you! Thank you very much!
