70's

Winterspring!

Dang I am behind on posting! I have been posting to my Facebook page: www.facebook.com/whyilikerainbows but I really need to catch up here. So with that in mind here are my latest winter-spring wears! During my monthlong travels in January and February I picked up a couple new outfits in Boston- it was so fun to shop with my dear old friend Trianis from college, and we happened upon a wicked Anthro sale that we couldn't pass up! Also... I cut my hair even shorter! Laugh In the spirit of lightening the load overall the hair had to go too. Shortest it's even been and I'm honestly loving it!

rule breakin'.

Recent outfits... and white jeans after Labor Day! It has been a quick and colorful summer! Many things I did not get to wear. My daily Tim Gunn calendar says I should get rid of the summer clothes I didn't wear... hmmm I will at least consider a few things Tim Happy

Also, holy hair growth! Chopping my hair has given it new life and it has been growing like a weed! Had to chop again yesterday.

throwback thursday.

Since it's Thursday, I thought I would share some vintage items I've worn this past week: blue skirt, in heavy rotation at the moment, amazing vintage geometric blouse borrowed from my sweet gal pal Allison, and The Cure tee shirt I've had since 7th grade... Laugh

Can we talk about outfit perfection here for Carly Simon's album cover No Secrets? My color palette and 70's vibe to a T... down to the blue suede clogs!

70's green bell bottoms.

Look at my Godmother and Godsister in the late 70s... Wow do I love those green bell bottoms! Wish she still had them Happy They are so my color!

San Fran vintage style.

Just got back from an inspiring trip to the Bay area, my favorite, and couldn't let a trip pass me by without a little style digging while there... I had some amazing vintage Levi's finds in the Mission district by the pound... all high waisted in their 70's glory! My body was so meant to thrive in another decade Happy When I reside somewhere with less amazing wardrobe options, it's so easy for me to slip into dressing like an Old Navy drone... no offense ON because I do find many cute things there... but I when I visit places like SF, I remember how I really want to represent my best self via what I wear, and know I need to work harder to cultivate that, even if it means shopping only when traveling!

color girl.

In the spirit of expanding on the rainbow theme, another reason I love it so is because I love color.

Over the past few years my appreciation of color, style and aesthetics, and sharing this with the world through what I wear has blossomed, and it has become something easy and enjoyable for me to do. I am a novice now, but I'm sure I'll get more polished - in the meantime, it's just fun! A few recent fall outfits:
