City Sneaks

T-Shirt: Lucky, Leather Jacket: H&M Icons Collection (old), Distressed denim shorts: Forever 21 (old), Sneakers: Ross (℅), Accessories: Aldo's sunglasses, SF Giants baseball cap via Lids, Lionette necklace, Lionette bracelet, 3.1 Phillip Lim Pashli

San Francisco is synonymous with so much - food, site seeing, history, architecture and even its grand hills. While I'm not afraid to wear various styles of heels, I normally kick it with some good ol' sneakers; especially when I'm walking around this city. 

I snagged this pair from Ross recently and it's been a very welcome addition. I love the throw-back style and above all else, I love the comfort. I can wear them all day and not feel like I need a break. Pretty important in this hilly city of ours. 

Well, I love them so much I decided to show off my shoes on Ross's promotion on Facebook. Oh, you know how I love to enter contests (swoon!) and if you show off your shoes, you can win a $500, $300 or $100 Ross gift card. You can vote for me (please!) and/or submit your own shoe selfie! Good luck!

I had a combination of work, chores and errands this weekend but, everything ended on a high note. We even tackled that hideous pile of laundry I referred to earlier (you'd be proud...staying up until 2am just doing laundry. Crazy. Party. Animals). Finishing what you need to do on a major to-do list is a wonderful feeling isn't it? With so much going on externally, I kept everything simple with my outfit so I could maintain focus on my goals. It worked. The result is serenity.

C'est La Vie

 T-Shirt: Gap, Faux leather pants: Forever 21, Jacket: Zara, Sneakers: Keds, Accessories: H&M hat, via Gilt necklace, Thrifted Coach Willis

Have you ever reached the end of your clothing cycle because the laundry is piled up and while you still have clothes and plenty of options you just feel like nothing is left? Oy. It feels so consumerist of me yet, it's a feeling that's there. This outfit pretty much sums up my life in a nutshell. Mixed up with spurts of surprise. As the saying goes, c'est la vie.

In case it was not already obvious, I have a bit of nerd in me. Since I don't work or live near the tech world that is so often associated with the Bay Area (Silicon Valley) when I get to visit a place like Facebook, I get star-struck. I once visited Google a while ago but, I don't think it counts when it's not posted to Instagram does it?

Wednesday Whim - Tiny Tattoos

Tattoos are a very personal statement. They are subjective in beauty. After all, they are permanent. But, they can be bold and artistic or small and intimate depending on the person. In this particular photo series titled, Tiny Tattoos, Seattle, Washington-based photographer, Austin Tott, captures people's small ink against a related backdrop (e.g. quotes in the midst of books, a bicycle in front of an urban environment or an umbrella among rain clouds).  With such simple tattoos, Austin Tott captures a beautiful story in one photograph. Though the hand-drawn tattoo is tiny, the grand scale of the arm and backdrop creates a unique perspective.

Personally, I have an affinity for tattoos. While I don't have one (yet) I find them alluring in nature and love to learn why people get the styles they do.
