Happy Monday, everyone!!! Today, I’m sharing an outfit that I wore to the Old Town Flea Market. In my Madewell Haul
, I picked up this black overlay midi skirt. I paired it with a pink crop top with white embroidery and a scalloped hem. The scallop detailing and the embroidery adds some texture to the outfit and the lightweight skirt with the addition of wedges adds length. By pairing a high waisted skirt with a crop top, I create the illusion of having longer legs and hide my long torso. If you like the skirt, you should hurry and buy it while it’s on sale! Right now it’s $30!

I have a love and hate relationship with the color of this skirt. The print and cut is cute but the color is actually quite unappealing. Overall it’s an ugly cute. To balance out the skirt, I decided to pair it with all black. The textured tights make the look a little more unique and help lengthen the leg when paired with almond toed heeled booties. Even though, the booties have a skinner heel, I can last a good 4 hours in these. I remember I walked around Pier 39 in these before!
For my birthday, I decided to take a trip to Southern California to do a little exploring. The Last Bookstore was a treasure trove. I could spend hours looking for books. We stayed at cute little loft in Downtown Los Angeles. I didn’t check the weather and was stuck wearing a turtleneck in 90 degree weather…
After the Last Bookstore, we made a trip to Komodo. They are known for making the phorrito, which is basically pho wrapped in a tortilla. It was surprisingly really good, and I can’t wait to try to make it myself at home. It’s been a while since I actually experimented in the kitchen.
For a night out, I picked out this hunter green slip dress from Topshop. The lace adds a delicate touch and I wore my vegan leather jacket to make it more edgy. Leather and lace is one of my favorite combinations.
Last weekend was a little departure from a carefully planned routine weekend. A weekend that I needed, to break the cycle of keeping myself locked up in my apartment. So I braved Bay Area traffic, and drove directly to Santa Maria after work.
A boat, a raft, and lots of laughs
Let’s just say that I am the opposite of a thrill seeker. I cling to my planner and plan my life for fun. So pushing myself to do slightly dangerous things takes a lot out of me. I tried rafting for the first and probably the last time. I’d rather just sit on a boat and lounge around than actually go in the in the water…
After spending Saturday at Lopez Lake, we decided to have a quick stop at the beach before I make my trek back to the Bay. Montana de Oro is secluded and serene, perfect for a picnic for two. Personally, I would pick a cute spot on the bluffs and read a book alone.
