Happy Monday! This is a recap on yesterday, a busy Sunday to be in the city. It was commotion with the Do Over, Dunk Exchange, Soma StrEats, and of course, the Niners game. These heels were a serious steal I found for a whopping $23. Can I get a hell yeah for heels I can walk all day and night in? Well, I wanted to break these babies in so why not look like “that one girl” wearing heels to a food truck event to watch the game. It went so well with the tee. AND WHAT? It’s that Sunday spirit.

Just a quick little hash-tag outfit of the day post. Ive been trying to squeeze as much time with my BFF before she leaves me for.. kinda, forever! It’s bizarre to fathom the idea of a long distance relationship, haha. Lesbihonest, when it comes to speaking about friendships, especially at a best friend level, does it not equate and automatically rank the BFF at par to a BF? Acronym overload. That aside, I’m pleased and zealous for all that she’ll pursue. Definitely motivation and a driver to push myself out of my comfort zone. Current thought bubbles are forming with brainstorms and re-evaluations in the works! Like a pop of color, my thoughts will often times be candid and random so bare with me. In due time, like my red striped shirt I tied on my waist, it’ll come in handy *tongue out emoji*

how to: keep it short and sweet

Let’s keep this short, pun intended. I love rocking shorts but being in SF, unless you’re ballsy and can brave the cold weather which I can’t, shorts just pile up in the dark corners of my closet. However; perfectly and magically with the welcome to summer, my shorts and legs finally get to see some sunlight! We were encouraged to wear our shorts to work so hey, don’t mind if I do. Especially with the weather being absolutely amazing… if only for two days.
Thought I’d share a few tips on

HOW TO WEAR SHORTS TO WORK:

DO’S:
STILL DRESS LIKE YOU’RE GOING TO WORK. Rocking a blazer or good silk blouse with shorts are always a win!

CONSERVE YOUR TOP HALF – Keep the focus on one body part at a time. In this case, it’ll be your lovely legs.

WEAR APPROPRIATE SHORTS – In a conservative place, shorts are already walking a fine line so opt for shorts that don’t cling too much on your derriere. Denim can work sometimes, but if you’re not sure, sticking to dress shorts is a safe bet.

DON’TS:
WEAR THOSE DENIM, BOOTY CUT OFFS – Please.Don’t wear any type of booty shorts to work in general!

OVERLY SEX IT UP – You’re already strutting those sexy legs so it’s not necessary to wear a strapless top or a low cut shirt. Remember that you’re at work not dressing for a night out.
(If you must, cause you’re heading to Happy Hour or dinner after: keep it classy by covering up with a blazer or cardigan and de-clothe after work)

BEND AND SNAP (Legally Blonde reference. If you don’t know, watch: here) – I know, I know.. It’s hard to resist when you accidently drop a pen but best to keep your bum in your shorts during work hours. Unless you’re trying to snag that hot coworker, that’s all on you.


This may be new for you or this may be all things you may already know. If so, take it as a good reminder. Either way, keep it short and sweet!

stop and smell the roses

Am I allowed to hashtag late-post and sorry for the delay on here? Oh well, here it is: #latepost #sorryfornotpostinganythingsooner. Yes, I did the extremely long hashtag. They tend to be a pet peeve for some and hilarious for others. I personally view it as a mini challenge deciphering, especially when the letters jumbo and I completely misinterpret the words; it’s similar to the old lady vs young lady illusion. Remember when it was only called the pound sign? Believe me when I say I was mind boggled when introduced the name, “hashtag”. In my silly mind, I thought, “So.. does that mean if you ever called a business and was prompted to ‘press pound’, it’ll now be … (I’m not even gonna finish my sentence because you can only guess where it’s going). Shut up, if you think it’s stupid and high five, if you agree because that seriously went through my mind, even if for a few seconds. Enough on the hash tagging craze.

Last week was busy busy and this was an outfit from a few weeks back. It’s so hard to just stop and smell the roses and when I do, I completely indulge and ‘lax out to the max. At this point, I’m still re-evaluating my time and figuring out a good balance. A part of that time, I’ve made a promise to make more time for this! So look forward to the posts upcoming; I have some super easy and helpful tips I can’t wait to share! May it pertain to food (yum), health (woohoo!), fashion (hello…) or just random rumbo-jumbo (might happen)! Stay tuned!

This weekend was jam packed with the sun reeling in plenty of good fun with my favorite peeps. Brunch and BBQs to the amazing XX concert; I was in constant movement. Today being the very last day that SFMOMA would be opened, the girls and I paid a visit and got inspired by all the great artwork. Truly a beautiful venue. It’ll be interesting to see the new changes made when they re-open three years from now. With the bi-polar weather that is SF, dressing requires layers on layers on layers. Though it was still gorgeous out, it wasn’t long before it got windy so the bare legs needed some warmth. Thinking ahead, these thigh high socks came to my rescue this afternoon so I was a-okay.

Hope everyone else enjoyed their weekend!
