Cozy Sweater

 Tunic dress: H&M, Sweater: Vintage, Boots: H&M (similar), Accessories: Karen Walker sunglasses, H&M necklace, Forever 21 bag

The days are definitely feeling like fall and my wardrobe has finally caught up. Recently, I've been obsessed with cozy sweaters. Especially longer length ones. I feel all snuggled up wearing them and they are definitely great options to wear with dresses.

A Gal & Her Team

 Shirt: H&M Kids, Tank: Target, Skirt: American Apparel, Sneakers: Nike Free 5.0, Accessories: SF Giants hat via Lids, Karen Walker sunglasses (25% with code family25), Clare Vivier foldover clutch (25% with code family25)

Throughout the blog, I've had a soft spot for my home team (from their ups and their downs and their opening season). Through thick and thin, we've been through it together. It sounds so funny / weird doesn't it? To advocate a team so much so that you feel emotions as they go through wins and suffer through losses? 

But, the emotions are real
. And we're back in that critical time where a win means everything (and there's even a little compassion there for my unhappy husband whose team didn't get this far). It means the team I've been rooting for will advance to the ultimate game of the season. The World Series. Baseball is a classic, American sport and you either love or you hate to watch it. When you love it, you remember everything about it. When the big games happen, you can recall where you were when you watched a specific play and who you were with. It's an interesting memory game. So, I'm going to appreciate this time of the year and I'm likely going to remember the specific details that a person otherwise forgets. 

And, thanks for letting me explore my other passion a little more on this blog. Because I'm all about the home team right now.

Wednesday Whim - Reflection

The wonders of installation art is the ability to create something that wasn't there before in a place that doesn't typically serve as an art venue. As part of this year's DUMBO Arts Festival, Brooklyn-based sculptor Tom Fruin installed his plexiglass house (Kolonihavehus) in Brooklyn Bridge Park. 

The house/art (called Reflection) was lit from the inside and even served as a temporary home for Copenhagen-based performance group, CoreAct, who performed their act during the day. Reflection was a "poetic interpretation concerning our daily choices, or lack of choices, and their consequences to our common future." As DUMBO Arts Festival described it, CoreAct

portray(ed) everyday dilemmas and lifestyle paradoxes in a subtle manner. They have the lost the ability to meaningfully discriminate, and are trapped in a long chain of procrastination, mirroring our current social patterns.
The plexiglass house is no longer up for viewing but, we can all ponder on what this installation meant to viewers. As we move through this fast-paced lifestyle of ours where information (factual or not) is just at our fingertips, we can relate to the loss of making informed decisions in favor of making popular (and sometimes easier) decisions at some point in our lives.

Fleet Week(end)

 Dress: H&M, Denim jacket: H&M, Boots: Ross (c/o), Accessories: Aldo's sunglasses, Baggu canvas duck bag, Alexis Bittar bracelets

San Francisco wrapped up Fleet Week this past weekend. While I didn't do a lot of the activities that revolved around Fleet Week, I did end up seeing the Blue Angel air show on Sunday. Seeing that show made me feel like a kid again. At one point, they flew so low that I could distinctly read the words on the plane as they passed by. So. Amazing.

Weekend Vibes

 Camo jacket: Ross (c/o but similar), Shirt: H&M, Scallop hem skirt: Forever 21, Sandals: Gap, Accessories: Karen Walker sunglasses, Thrifted Coach Willis

It feels like ages have passed since SF had its fling with Indian Summer (it's only been days). The nights have since chilled and nightfall comes earlier and earlier every evening. 

Although I never  felt I got into all my summer attire thoroughly enough this year, I am now ready to embrace fall. Wearing cozy sweaters, boots and proper jackets are all things I'm anxious to throw on. But, until then, memories of my weekend vibes and that good ol' Indian Summer will do.
