City of Champions

Here's another late blog post since I was saving this outfit to wear for a night out. It's one of those that never made an appearance when I first wore it because I suddenly was too cold, lazy or decided I just wasn't in the mood. Oftentimes, I will try to capture it through a crappy iPhone camera but of course that never does it any justice (no matter how hard I try to manipulate it through filters and photo apps). I really don't know where I got the idea that the moment an outfit has been photographed, it would be a sin to repeat it and it would be daring to wear it again the very next day. I saw a someecard that read, "I have an irrational fear of wasting a good outfit on an insignificant day" and to some degree I relate. At 29, I definitely feel more secure not to care or have the need for someone to acknowledge my style. But occasionally I'll feel this simply for the effort I put in, especially since neither of those are a part of my routine anymore. When I have my hair done, a full face of makeup on and to catch me wearing eyeshadow and lashes- shows real dedication on my end; so to do all that and not go out feels pretty pointless. Anyway, I'm glad I waited to take a better picture even though I looked silly hiking in heels. The weather was so nice up Marin Headlands and the Golden Gate Bridge made a perfect background. It's Super bowl Sunday and because San Francisco is dominating in sports, I couldn't be more proud to be from the Bay Area. Go Niners!
