Back to Basics

I’ve been in sort of a fashion rut lately. I know I’ve mentioned Poshmark before, but I seriously went through my closet a couple of months ago and did a MAJOR sweeping of items to get rid of. As a result, I feel like I don’t have much left to wear. As a result of that result, I’ve been wearing a lot of basics lately, and I’m not mad about it.

And while I went back to basics, I also went back to dark with my hair. The ombre was fun for awhile, but I feel more me now. Additionally, I am obsessed with these booties. I love them so much, I immediately ordered the black pair as well. Here in San Francisco, it’s hard to choose footwear because you never know when you’ll be walking long distances, and the hilly sidewalks aren’t very heel-friendly. These boots are perfect though because the chunky heel makes them comfortable and walkable. Take that, SF hills. Just kidding; respect the earth and all that junk.

I actually wore this outfit a few weeks ago to see the movie Begin Again. Can I just say that I absolutely adored that movie?! I mean, it’s not the best film I’ve ever seen, but it was so darn cute and it left me optimistic at the end. I seriously just felt so warm and fuzzy and uplifted while watching. It’s been awhile since I’ve had a movie going experience like that. I highly recommend.

Now these shoes. I love them. I’m still riding aboard the d’Orsay Express (clearly), but I love that these silver shoes give a bit of sparkle pop to an otherwise dark outfit. Oh, and shout out to the city of San Francisco for always providing me with an amazing background, no matter where I am. And, of course, these two “ferns.”
