Do you ever have those shoes that you wear so much they literally break in half or get huge holes? These are quickly becoming one of them! Hopefully I can find a similar pair soon...
I knew I loved these tights the moment I tried them on. It's not as blistering cold in Northern California during January as it is on the East Coast, so I'm really glad I can wear these even in the winter. To stay warm, I made sure to pair the outfit with a turtle neck and bring an extra cardigan with me. The tights and the skirt are newer pieces, so I've linked them down below. Thanks for reading and I would love for you to leave a comment! :)
As you can see from my latest posts, I have been loving how quirky socks add a unique touch to an outfit because it's a great example of how fashion can show your personality. This 20 year old plaid coat is vintage from my mom's closet. It was quite questionable when it had shoulder pads in it, but after I cut them out, I loved it! The silhouette of the boyfriend cut jacket paired with a button up really reminded me of how I dressed in high school... I guess some things never change.
Shirt: From Korea
Socks: From Korea
Fall is here so it's time to whip out the sock collection! I love how they add an undeniably stylish touch to black booties.
I picked up these quirky pairs from my summer travels in Korea. To my family, visiting relatives in Asia means stocking up on socks. These ones were only $1 each! My favorite is the socks of bunnies putting on socks.
If you're short on sock inspo, try some from the boy's closet. Their length is usually great for peeking right above the booties.
A nice white set of socks works wonders, too. I paired these with brogues and like how the Calvin Klein logo aligns above the heel.
And you can't go wrong with some snuggly socks. I hit up H&M (left) and Forever21 (right) for some affordable AF pairs.

Muralists are the most inspiring type of artist, IMO. Their work is eye-catching, controversial, and unapologetic. Each city has its own distinctive style of murals, which is a direct result of laws governing graffiti and art in public spaces. For example, in Barcelona, a city ironically famous for its reverence of art, graffiti is frequently washed off walls since it could potentially send the wrong message to tourists.
I found these amazing murals in Clarion Alley of San Francisco. It’s literally an alleyway stretching a few blocks, where artists have free range to express their ideas. I love how they use an age-old craft to assess modern day issues.
Until next time, SF.
