FALL BRIGHTS

Why do I call San Francisco home? We’re kindred, that’s why. We value niceties, but appreciate the quirks just as much. Some people say fall, San Francisco says summer. Some people say crazy, San Francisco says spirited. We like to go against the grain. We do it our way and we look good doing it. When the Poshmark blogger gals decided to go for a fall brights themed photo shoot, I was perplexed at how to put my mark on the challenge. Most of my wardrobe is on the neutral side, plus I’m still getting used to the layered, foggy and pedestrian place that is the City by the Bay.

Topshop saved the day as I found plenty a bright item that called to me. But orange floral print shorts? In fall? Absolutely. They reeled me in and I was powerless to resist. I love me some retro inspired prints, which harken to my days of being a Roxy fanatic – and yes, I still use my baby blue floral print suitcase when I travel.

So the Poshmark ladies met up in our fair city on a trademark gray day to shoot with the delightful and talented Erica Garlieb. The shoot was recently featured on Racked SF, and I was thrilled to be included in such a fabulous round-up. Each of my fellow bloggers has such a unique point of view, which I love. It’s one of the reasons I love being a part of this team: the celebration of personal style and the evolving closet. When you buy and sell on the app, you get to love new things and let your pre-loved pieces shine on someone else.

I’m not sure when and if these shorts will hit my virtual closet (because I am utterly enamored at present), but my sweater, chambray shirt and some jewels we PoshFinds. My necklace is also from the lovely SF-based Sweet and Spark.

Some days, when you’re busy taking over the world, you just have to keep it simple. And a pop of leopard and pink lipstick never hurts.

LAYERS ON LAYERS

This skirt had me debating in the dressing room. It was fun and different, but was it me? Could I pull off a flared neoprene skirt? The constant decisions and second guessing are what keep me from loving shopping. I really shouldn’t doubt myself, though, because I L-O-V-E this skirt. I wore it to kick off the 10 Days of Fall #PoshStyle Instagram Challenge. (Are you joining in the fun? You could win big!) While it may not exactly feel like summer has left the building, it does make me excited for a new season of style. Excited enough that you may just find me shopping (and quieting my inner doubt) again sometime soon.

THIS IS 30

I didn’t put together a 30 Before 30 List even though it is practically some blogger right of passage. My take on this popular concept? It’s just a way to lessen the blow of removing the word “twentysomething” from your social media bios. The challenge of entering our 30s is to find a new way to describe our fun-loving, semi-responsible selves.

Instead, I find myself glad to drop that descriptor since this “new me” is decidedly not ambiguous as it would suggest. I’m even more comfortable challenging the notions that don’t quite seem right and putting my signature sassy spin on common convention. That is why, upon turning 30, I donned a short skirt and zebra print. Age ain’t nothing but a number and youth is fleeting. But sass? It’s forever.
