I feel like the past month and a half has been a whirlwind — traveling, celebrating, adjusting to the new year. After a long, mellow weekend it seems that things are finally back to normal. Normal feels good.

Today Blake and I went thrifting in the Mission — I scored a handful of amazing finds, including a heavy jacket that will be perfect for New York next month (I am going for Fashion Week!!). On our way back home, we stumbled upon this bizarre abandoned gas station. Pretty neat, eh?

Hope everyone had an amazing weekend! <3

    I loved the tiger print shoes you’re wearing. It gels amazingly with your outfit. Even your hair color seems to compliment your personality and looks. Mustard color is not appreciated very often, but this mustard color sweater looks too good. I wish I could get one for my self.

    Love the mustard sweater. Been after a scarf in that colour all winter. Still not found one. Might have to knit one myself at this rate!

    Just found your blog :)

    Love how the title and backdrop tie in so well together…and this outfit is lovely as well, as per usual! I love the contrast of the warm tones in the shoes and sweater against the silver skirt.
