We Got It Goin' On


ModCloth Dress / Ebay T-shirt 

Last night my best friend Edwin and I went to our first Backstreet Boys concert, after being fans since elementary school. It was amazing. They were on point with the harmonies and choreography. I enjoyed most of their new songs, as well as their acoustic set.  Don't ask me who my favorite is, I've never been able to decide.

For my outfit, I followed Jessica of What I Wore's lead and paired this bold stripe dress from ModCloth with a old concert T I found on Ebay.  I love seeing my favorite straight-sized blogger wearing the same dresses I've chosen.  I call the t-shirt "old" since it's from the 1998 tour and I don't think 15 years old qualifies as "vintage". I'm not that old yet. For accessories I took my color cues from the shirt and went with a red lip and nails, white pearl studs and bracelet, and black shades.

Today I'm linked up with Monday Mingle & Visible Monday! Check 'em out.

Beach Days

 ASOS Dress / Target Shades

Last week, I spent a few days in Southern California with my cousin visiting from New Zealand. We went to Ocean Beach in San Diego and Venice Beach. I restrained myself and only brought one swimsuit and one pair of sunglasses, but mixed it up with different accessories (my new Ben Sherman men's hat) and cover ups (like this lightweight printed dress).

Au Cinéma

 Old Navy Blouse / ASOS Skirt / Sam Edleman for American Eagle Sandals / H&M Clutch

Today I went to the Crest Theatre in Sacramento for the last night of the Sacramento French Film Festival. It was still in the triple digits when we left the house, so out of survival instinct I opted for a light jersey top and skirt with metallic accessories.

Wedding Guest Ideas

I didn't get any wedding invites this season, but the Prop 8 ruling in California has got me thinking of what I'll where when Edwin gets married someday. Here's the highlights of my online window shopping.

Take Me Out to the Ballgame

ModCloth Skirt / Old Navy Fan T-Shirt / Urban Outfitters Sunglasses  

As a family of Yankee fans living in Northern California, once a year we head down to Oakland when our team's in town. I love of course love a  jersey or team t-shirt, but I also love mixing in other pieces to pull together a whole ensemble in team colors. I've been wearing a lot of high waisted printed skirts recently, and I decided to pair this polka dotted one with a logo T for the contrast of sporty and cutesy.

Master of Style

ModCloth Dress / Prabal Gurung for Target Wedges / Old Navy Sunglasses

Today I earned my Masters of Arts in Education, and that meant another graduation ceremony. And you know me, I love any occasion to put special outfit together. I went with the stripe and floral dress from ModCloth, I'm really enjoying their increased plus size offerings recently. As for shoes, these Prabal Gurung for Target wedges were of course affordable and comfortable enough for the standing around waiting and steady enough to take me across the stage without wobbling like some of the girls in their sky high pumps.
