‎♡ My New Approach to What I Wear in 2018 ‎♡

Oy! I don’t know about you but today is the Mondayest Tuesday ever. However, I’ve been excited for this post for quite some time.

It’s no secret I shop a lot {a lot a lot a lotttttttt} at Brandy Melville.

It’s my favourite store to stock up on basics, knits, & sweats… not to mention, it’s a quick hop, skip & a jump away from my apartment.

I’ve noticed lately I’ve been getting a ton of graphics from there too. Like this shirt here & here – I love it because, well, it’s a shark holding a beer and I love the bar full of fish {& joke that the tall bartender is actually Erik} but if you google the place… it’s fake.

That said, it sure makes for a cute photo!

About a year ago, Erik & I went to Jenner to revisit Timber Cove after it’s renovation. While in Jenner, we popped by the Jenner Inn for a drink since it’s one of my fave bars there and I bought a sweatshirt on my way out. See me in it here & here.

Well- that sweatshirt slowly became one of my favourite things in my closet. It was a fun memory with Erik at that bar in one of my favourite places & fits perfectly… not to mention the seal is adorable!

In fact, I told Erik that this was something you would 100% see at Brandy.

As we roadtripped back to San Francisco, we stopped by some of the most random but fun places in Bodega Bay – including a super cute Salt Water Taffy place called Patrick’s. Everywhere, I got a shirt.

I realized I was buying things so similar to what I was already buying but now everything had a special memory or place tied to it.

I told Erik that that will be my new MO for this year, style wise.

If it’s not a black mockneck, then I want it to be a place that I went to with Erik, or my girl friends, or my family – you name it.

It’s been a fun way to truly personalize items & even better? With each wash, it gets softer & softer & lends the vintage “lived in” feel & look.

So from travel, to restaurants, to concerts, to the random moments – if they’re selling something to wear, I’m buying it!

Here, I’m wearing the long sleeved tee from Jenner Inn with pants from the Reformation {sold out – similar}, Pixie jacket from i.am.gia {cannot recc this jacket ENOUGH – in fact, it merits it’s own post so I’ll do that soon. do note it runs HUGE so size down, I’m wearing XS}, sunglasses from Spitfire {sold out – similar}, & brand new Superga’s – not pictured but I’m obsessed with them!

It may not be haute couture, but it’s a fun way to wear your memories!

Wellllll that’s all I got for today. Let me know your thoughts on this! It’s def a different approach to what is in my closet, but I’ve been loving it lately & even better to support the places that bring Erik & I so much joy!

Okay talk soon!!

PS – these pics were taken after I got my hair cut – I hope you like the length, I am in LOVE with the result!

  • OMG OK IF YOU GO ANYWHERE IN AUSTIN FOR A GLASS GO HERE {ESP THIS MONTH}: @junesallday 💘
🌸
Here’s why: For November, they are celebrating Japan and it’s so dope. The drink menu is styled like a manga comic, & they have some of the coolest sakes I’ve ever had. Even though I’m just drinking wine here {@royaltokaji the oddity dry furmint if we’re being a specific, #hipster I know - dope winelist, you will love, get something craycray}, but after this glass I had this one sake that blew me away... you might have seen it in my stories: basically “rosé sake” and it was one of the coolest things I’ve ever drank... and I’ve drank lots of things in this life of mine lol 😇
🌸
Anyways, it was called AMABUKI GIN NO KIRENAI JUNMAI • @amabukishuzo_official. In the glass, it was PINK, and tasted slightly sweet & fruity. It got its colour from using ancient black rice. If you see this, you have to get it and shoot me a DM while you’re at it so I can have some sake fomo 😅🍶✨

Kinda half clueless half gossip girl, right? ⚜️ #slsatx #90sstyle #retrovintage #thedriskill #austintexas
