’60s Baby

'60s Baby

By far, ’60s-inspired looks are my favorites to do. I love the colors, the patterns, the short shift dresses, the winged eyeliner — I love it all. There’s something about the style that comes very naturally to me. This is the first of a three-part series of outfit pictures I’m doing with San Francisco-based clothing label NOOWORKS. NOOWORKS has some of the most fun, vibrant patterns. These days, I discover most new artists and brands through social media, but I literally found NOOWORKS by passing by their brick and mortar on Valencia Street in San Francisco one sunny summer two years ago. I get a little depressed when I see lots of dark, dreary colors for autumn and winter, but NOOWORKS Autumn/Winter patterns are the perfect marriage between pattern and color without being over-the-top super saturated and summery.

Let’s get some real talk done here. It’s been a minute since I’ve updated this blog. In the past, I would have scurried to throw a post up on here just for the sake of keeping this blog updated, but I much rather post less of more quality than something half-hearted and rushed. I could say I’ve been busy and launch into a long explanation and series of excuses and blah blah blah, which is all true (if you want to read the long explanation of what I’ve been doing, go here), but this blog has always been at the core of my values, and although I’m taking things slower, I’m never quitting. I’ve been overwhelmed and I’ve been inspired and I’ve been soaking up beautiful music and I’ve been writing, creating, learning, and taking care of myself (which means slowing down right now). If you want more daily check-ins, follow me on Instagram, where I post more frequently and do stories.

The banana gallery

The Banana Gallery

When I was little, I used to refer to myself to my mom in third person as “the peanut gallery.” Like, “the peanut gallery has a suggestion” when I wanted to make a suggestion or “the peanut gallery wants this,” etc. The term kind of stuck and I still refer to myself as “the peanut gallery.” I was having a *very serious* conversation with my mom that since I can’t eat peanuts (dietary intolerance) and will probably never eat peanuts for the rest of my life, I shouldn’t keep referring to myself as “the peanut gallery.” Right now I’m on a primarily fruitarian diet that consists of a lot of bananas. Hence, “the banana gallery.”

You remember when I wore Sarah Liller in an outfit post here? Today I’m wearing her jumpsuit and you bet I wore this baby on the plane when I went to Portland the week before last. My mom got herself one, too, in the color Wine. The best part about this jumpsuit is it’s not dry clean only! So many independent designers with their fancy ethically-sourced organic fabrics are dry clean only—which is all fine and well—but Sarah just makes it more convenient. 😉

People watching on the beach

People watching on the beach

I got the film photos back from my trip to Santa Cruz and wanted to share them with you guys. Although I’ve only been to Santa Cruz once and it took me 10 years of living in Northern California to make it there, it is easily one of my favorite places in the world. The relaxed, casual vibe of the beach town totally jived with my soul (totally hippie-ish way of describing it, but you know what I mean). I am so Type A and high-strung on my own, I don’t need to surround myself with a stressful environment, too.

Only the fourth picture was taken in Santa Cruz during an overcast morning, the rest were taken at Capitola Beach. There is a hotel called Capitola Venetian Hotel that has all those colorful apartments. I definitely want to go back in the wintertime to get pictures when the beach isn’t so crowded. If you live close to the beach, these pictures may look boring and typical to you. I’ve never lived super close to a beach before, so I don’t get to see scenes like these very often in real life. People watching on the beach is 100 million times better than normal people-watching because there are so many people—all different ages—doing all sorts of things: swimming, surfing, playing volleyball, building sandcastles, running, lying, cuddling, reading, drawing, and the list goes on. I could sit there all day and not talk to a single soul—just observe the movements and habits of those around me.
