That 70's Outfit

That 70's Outfit

I don't always model, but when I do it's usually for my friend Sara Freitag. When she put together this styled shoot for a fashion decade project I ended up realizing I have a whole lot of 70's inspired clothing (and a whole lot of Madewell) in my wardrobe, so this shoot is turning into a series. More to come, but here's the first set!

In Spades

I've been in need of a new purse for a long while, and had my eyes on this (new with tags) Kate Spade beauty on Poshmark for some time. When I noticed someone else trying to make a move on it, I realized I would be super bummed if I missed out on it, especially at such a great price (half off!). So I quickly made an offer and snatched it up. Happily, my offer was accepted. I waited with anticipation, and as per my usual behavior, obsessively package tracked until the purse was delivered. Much to my delight, it was even prettier in person that in the photos I saw prior to purchasing. 

If you've never heard of Poshmark, it could replace your Pinterest addiction. You can sell and make money from clothes that are just gathering dust in your closet, while also shopping for new and gently used items at prices up to 70% off retail. If you're interested in joining use my code, PGGRF when you sign up to receive $5 off your first purchase!

Falling

I think the weather heard my pleas. This week it's finally cooled down a bit, and you can feel an underlying chill to the air. So I'm taking what I can get, and getting on that layering game.

My style isn't very girly at all, so to downplay and balance out the lace peplum top, I chose a military inspired jacket. I'm always hesitant to purchase something when it first becomes a trend, because I don't want to waste money on something that will be out of fashion a year later. However, this style has consistently been around for the past few years, and really seems to have become a fashion staple. It's super easy to wear, and pretty much goes with everything. So if you don't have one of these jackets yet, I highly recommend investing in one you love.

Endless Summer

Endless Summer

The title of this post is no joke. Here in San Diego (and the rest of Southern California), the weather is uncharacteristically humid, and characteristically hot for mid-October.

Every year I seem to forget that the heat lasts through the final week of this month, until I'm in the thick of it. The only place to escape nasty heat in San Diego is usually the beach, because you can just hang in the water all day. But this late in the year, the water's just a little too cold for that; so we just get to sweat it out. 

All the gorgeous sweaters and cozy clothing, coupled with fall candles, and everyone who is not located in SoCal's fall Instagrams don't help my pining for real seasons either. Then, to top it all off, it's been super gray and foggy and somehow managed to not even cool down at all. Don't mind me staying inside all day and pretending it's cold enough outside to justify my sock wearing. A girl's got to be allowed to at least pretend there's such a thing as autumn in Southern California.

Enough season-wishing though. When you're tired of wearing your summer wardrobe because you've been wearing it for the past five-and-a-half months, but you still can't layer, or even imagine justifying purchasing that gorgeous sweater you're eyeing, what do you wear? This!
