Autumn all the time

27 Jul

Alexa Chung x Madewell Coat  |  long legged ladyWelcome to July in San Francisco, where wool coats and crop tops are totally appropriate afternoon attire.  I don’t even care that it’s so chilly and gray outside because I just got this coat and I’ve been wanting to wear it non-stop.

You can’t tell in these photos, but I’m also wearing a pair of high-waisted T by Alexander Wang sweater shorts that I found on eBay.  One of my weirder online shopping habits is to browse secondhand sites like eBay, Threadflip, etc. and look for pieces that I find interesting, but would never in a million years buy at their original price.   If I can get it for less than $40, it’s a deal.  If I don’t like something when I receive it, I just turn around and re-list.  It makes for fun little style challenges and keeps me from going on F21 or H&M binges when I want some retail therapy.  Turns out, I really love high-waisted sweater shorts.  I’ll post some better pictures of them on a day when the weather feels like cooperating.

In other news, I’m taking a project manager role at a new tech company!  I basically have everything to learn about the business, so it’s going to mean tons of research, long hours, and a lot of learning things on the fly, but that’s nothing I can’t handle.  Wish me luck!

    …meanwhile here in New York we can’t even look at coats without getting a heat stroke 😦

    This look is killer. Makes us so stoked for fall!

    Much love from Brooklyn
