A for Effort

Didn't really have any plans to dress up for Halloween. Never really been a big costume dresser. The most I'd probably go for is a look or an outfit.

Gap Kids sweater, Gap skirt, H&M collar necklace,
Aerosole boots (Winners)

Did I get the school girl look right, at least? The funny thing is I'd wear this outfit any given time. HAH!

And since it's Halloween after all...

Not too much candies around work, fortunately hehe... And there goes another Halloween...

I guess once you go stripes, kinda' hard to swipe. The habit, that is... womp, womp...

Gap top, BDG jeggings (UO), Aldo boots

So, that's 3 days of stripes, in a row, not counting the weekend. Ok, how can that be in a row if it skipped days? *scratch head* Ok, kinda'... Plenty more of stripes to go thru, if I so wish/want... We'll see...

... gotta show the elbow patch, no?

Been raining all day, then it just stopped, thankfully. Guess its' nothing compared to what people are going thru in the east coast. People stay safe, I hope...

More (Shades of) Grey and Black

First saw the word "greysessed" on Twitter, and of course, this is all thanks to the popularity of a certain book (wink-wink, nudge-nudge). I kinda like the word now since I do like the color. Hah!

Nevada top (Sears), infinity scarf (Winners),
Gap leggings, Born boots (Winners)

So there I was Friday, having overslept and running a tad late, and all I wanted was to get thru the day and be comfy. And appropriate for the weather we're having too, I thought.

I've worn this top a couple of times now. As much as I love its shape, it's kinda' tricky in my eyes. I can easily see it heading into preggy-looking territory. O well...

Black and (Shades of) Grey

Cannot get any more basic than that, eh?

Gap jacket, H&M shirt & belt, Della Spiga pants (Costco), Geox flats

Thought I'd add a bit of dimension to it with the stripes... pffft... Well the pinstripes goes up and down, and the white stripes goes sideways. I say good enough.

Oh, and let's not forget the touch of red, right?

Joe Fresh, H&M

That was me yesterday.Got home late last night, thanks to a special screening of a movie. So I overslept this morning. But who cares. Loved the movie! That's all I can say...

Wide Calves and Flowers

Here's another dress that was bought near the end of summer. Seems a waste if I had to wait til next summer, no? You know what I mean...

RW&Co dress (recent purch), Nicole Miller cardi,
H&M knee-high socks, Aerosole boots (Winners) 

I gotta admit this wasn't the boots I was intending to wear. However, with the woolen socks and all (by all, I mean my wide calves hehe), the black boots I was planning to wear didn't quite work out. I even tried a second pair. But alas, no. Hence, the brown boots.

... love the bow detail:p

I suppose I'd take the wide calves. It's a reminder of the amount of walking I do. Yes, I'm just saying that to make myself feel a lil better...

Here Comes the Rain Again

... falling on my head like a memory, falling on my head like a new emotion...

BR top, infinity scarf & Tommy Hilfiger booties (Winners),
Gap skinny jeans

So totally uninspired today. Actually, scratch that. I did have several outfits in mind, too many actually, that I got stumped. Then factor in the rain. The result? This. Bah! Hate when that happens.

Hubs thinks I'm a brat because I complain that I have too many choices sometimes. HAH! Maybe I am? Nah! I don't think so... hehe...

Single-Digit High

Today I had to leave quite early as I had an errand to do before work. I was out the door by 7. Yes, that's early, no?

BR sweater, 7 for All Mankind jeans (HR Last Call),
Aerosole boots (Winners)

And boy, was it nippy! So nippy that I realize, alas, it's time to take out the winter stuff... *sigh*...

Old Navy coat

Seriously cannot wait for DST to end. Not only because we're gaining an hour but I want to see more light in the morning. It was almost eerie walking this morning, with barely a soul walking around. Guess it's the same feeling when you're walking around at 3 in the morning. I almost felt like I should apologize 'cause it almost felt like the walk of shame, from a night of partying, ahem, so I heard...

Before the Leaves Fall

Did my volunteer yesterday, which meant I needed to dress business. Business-like, anyways. Better than I would for work, anyways. Which goes to show, again, what we get away with at work. Hah!

jacket (old), BR dress (pre-loved), Aerosole boots (Winners)

I realized this dress is not made for cooler weather (but what dress is? o yeah, sweater dress, I guess, duh!), but hey, I figured I could still make it work with boots.

The weather is changing, that's for sure. Air getting nippier and nippier by the day, for starter... le sigh...

Milk Chocolate, Dark Chocolate, Chocolate with Hot Chili...

For a short work week, it felt like I did so much. Yet, I have very little to show for, considering all that effort. What's up with that?!

Gap jacket & skinny cord, INC top, H&M scarf,
Tommy Hilfiger boots (Winners)

One good thing about it is that I did have some time to see people I've been wanting to see for a while now.

And now here I am, and it's Saturday. Ahhh, weekend...

A Touch of Red

I'm actually away from the office Wednesday and Thursday. No, I'm not off work (I wish!). On some kind of course, so I guess it's almost like off work hehe...

AE chambray shirt, H&M belt (recent purch), Joe Fresh cuff,
Liz Claiborne skirt (Sears, recent purch), Aerosole boots (Winners)

Not really a skirt person at work but I do try every now and then. How can you go wrong with a black skirt after all, eh?

(customary hand in pockets shot:p)

It's got pockets too, so bonus!

On to more learning...

Rockstar Jeans

So I finally succumbed to the hype about the Old Navy Rockstar jeans. What? Is it just me? Was there no hype? I thought there was. No? hehe

Nicole Miller cardi, Gap shirt, H&M scarf,
Old Navy Rockstar skinny jeans, Payless booties

Now I can see why, hype or not. I love how this jeans fit me! And comfy at that!

It's not super skinny since I did go a size up, which seems to be the recommendation out there. I probably didn't have to, I realize, after wearing it, but hey, at least I know now for next time (what next time??).

Thought the color was appropriate too for the weather we're having. What's that got to do with the jeans itself? Nothing. Just saying...

Color Me Red

Woke up this morning and they say it was gonna rain all day. So what did I decide to wear? Why a dress of course.

Old Navy dress (recent purch), cardi (old),
NIcole Miller legging (Costco), belt & Tommy Hilfiger booties (Winners)

Got this dress end of last month when it was clearly no longer dress season, but it just doesn't feel right to wait for next summer to wear it. I love the color and the scant flowers. I had to wear it now... hehe...

Now I just have to come up with more ways to wear this dress in the colder season...

A New and Old Fave

Another short work week for me, thank god! Woke up leisurely this morning, looked out the window and it was raining. Now, it's officially fall. What's fall in this city without rain after all!

H&M scarf, cardi (old), Paris shirt (Fairweather),
Gap skinny cords, Jessica flats (Sears)

Found a new fave cold season accessory in this tube scarf that I purchased a few weeks ago, and obviously was only able to wear just recently. I can probably wear it all day, especially once the temp gets cooler. And I love, love this shirt. As always, it reminds me of a fave trip and city, and the cotton is so soft, I could be lounging in it all day. And yes, I did wear it to work hehe...

Zara trench

It's definitely coat season now... *sigh*...

When You Live in a Coastal City

I may have mentioned this already in the past but I just find it really interesting how mercurial the weather is in this part of town due to the city's topography and location.

H&M scarf (recent purch), Gap button-down shirt, 
AE jeggings, Old Navy flats

Stepped out for work, and it was tad on the cool side. Just a tad.

Gap trench coat, Aldo purse

Arrived at the office, a different office, on the other side of (one of) the bridge, and it was chilly. Even too chilly for my trench. And kinda' spitting too. What's up with that!

Joe Fresh cuff, BR bracelet, gift

Apparently, crossing the bridge is all it takes to feel the difference in weather/temperature. So it seems. To me, anyway.

Tuesday, 9 October 2012


Not feeling any colors this morning while getting ready.

Zara jacket (old), Black Rainn top (Winners),
7 for All Mankind jeans (HR Last Call), Jessica flats (Sears)

Not even sure if all the textures and shades in this outfit go together. But you think I cared? Is it bad that I didn't, even if it didn't? Huh?

If it didn't, at least it was comfy for what it's worth. Ah, comfort, the go-to lame excuse... Meh!

Then Comes the Jacket

This time of the year is always a layering game in my head. Like how long can I hold off wearing a jacket as another layer? And not just a jean jacket...

BR shirt, Rudsak belt & CK jeans (Winners, old), Old Navy flats

This is what's good, I think, about this time of the year. Although it's starting to get chilly, for sure, it's still not that chilly, thank god.

Stella Starr faux leather jacket (Winners)

Definitely makes for a lovely Thanksgiving.

And speaking of Thanksgiving, looking forward to a tryptophan-induced meal hehe...

Then Comes the Richer Color

Boy am I glad it's Friday!

BR jean jacket & men's belt, AE button-down, Gap skinny jeans,
 Clarks flats (The Bay), scarf (gift)

It's been a long week for sure. Some major change at work, emails were flying back and forth like cray cray most of the week. BUT the good thing is it's a long weekend, yay Thanksgiving!

(love the plum-y color of these jeans)

AND on top of that, I have 2 short work weeks to look forward to after. See, it's not even Thanksgiving yet and I have something to be thankful for already. Actually, I'm always thankful, or I try to be anyways...

TGIF! (See, there's another one HAH!)

Then Come the Boots

Didn't think I'd be hauling out the boots this early in the season, but I guess I just did.

Gap dress, AE belt, H&M scarf, Aerosole boots (Winners)

But at least I'm still not wearing tights or leggings, so I suppose that makes it a tad better. Just a tad. It is still early Fall, right?

Gap jacket

I feel like I'm going to some square dance (do people still do that?). And I also just realized my (arm) accessories are missing in this pic. Must really not rush sometimes. Not that the pix are any better when I'm not rushing...


Tuesday, 2 October 2012

Then Come the Light Layers

Today was definitely chilly. Fall is officially here.

Old Navy shirtdress & flats, BR belt (Outlet), Gap skinny cord

I'm feeling Fall too hence the earth colors. Well, counting the minerals as well if we're talking about my somewhat shiny shoes too.

More layers were added as I stepped out when I realized it was cooler than I thought. Well, a denim jacket and a scarf. I say that's still light layering.

Which turned out to be not enough, eeeep.. O well... hehe...

Not Another Stripes

Why, yes, it is! HAH!

Nevada striped (shark-bite style) shirt (Sears, recent purch),
AE jeggings, Old Navy flats

What can I say, can't resist, ok?

Well, I wanted to be comfortable as well when met up with friends Saturday night.

Stripes, check. Comfortable, check. End of statement.
