Winds of Change

I love windy days in Sacramento. The rushing air seems to promise better (or wetter) things to come.

Kimono jacket, thrifted. Skirt, Bass (thrifted). Tights, B. Ella. Boots, Miz Mooz. Sunglasses, Target. Necklace, vintage. Bag, thrifted.

My new favorite photo spot is Parking Lot B in the Vic Fazio Yolo Wildlife Area. The view of Sacramento across the marsh is especially beautiful when the clouds are blowing across the sky.

Walk It

My recent running injuries may have been one of the best things to happen to my style and health. They forced me to buy, and wear, more sensible shoes. When I’m wearing a low, chunky heel, I don’t dread the walk from my car to a salon. My 30 lb bag seems to weigh only 20. Inventorying a color bar isn’t a torture session. I think I’ll make a habit of purchasing shoes I can walk in.

Vest, AC-3998 (cut from a thrifted jacket). Dress, Cut 25 (consignment). Boots, Steve Madden. Sunglasses, Target. Bag, thrifted.

On my (very comfortable) walk down K street, I took a picture of the "Kay" sign.

Sharp Dressed Woman

I spent a ridiculous amount on this blazer. Thankfully, I’m aggressively lowering the cost per wear. It now costs me $61.80 each wear.

Blazer, James Jeans. Dress, Parker. Tights, Miss Sixty. Boots, Lauren Ralph Lauren. Sunglasses, Target. Necklace, Express. Bag, thrifted.

By popular request (Sheila and Lorena), here is a cat, Roy, for today’s 365:

Washed Suede Skirt

I took your advice and washed this suede skirt in my machine, on gentle, with cold water and Woolite. I hung it to dry. (Drying took three days!) It’s a little stiffer than it used to be, but otherwise unharmed. And the food stains are gone. Success!

Sweater, thrifted. Shirt, Christopher & Banks (thrifted). Skirt, Ann Taylor (thrifted). Tights, gift. Boots, Sofft (consignment). Sunglasses, Girlprops. Earrings, street fair. Bag, Nicole Lee.

And, a backlog of 365 photos:
