Yuma // OOTD

I often find myself wearing variations of a single outfit over & over & over again. There's no shame in finding a combination or a garment that you really like & wearing the heck out of it. 

Jacket: Foxcroft Collection* // Dress: Cotton On (similar) // Shoes: Guess (similar) // Purse: Betsey Johnson (similar) // Leggings: Forever 21 (exact)

Fred & I ventured to Yuma, Arizona for a weekend getaway. It was stimulating to leave San Diego County for a couple days & spend time in a different state. I must admit I pretty much wore one outfit for two, maybe two & a half days. My motto is if it doesn't stink or there's not a stain it's good to wear again. That's socially acceptable, right?


Foxcroft Collection* sent this Solid Tencel® Long Sleeve Jacket a few months ago, but due to the chilly winter temperatures I hadn't had a chance to rock it. Since the winter days in Yuma were actually quite enjoyable, around 65° F, I layered up & sported this outfit. 


We grabbed a coffee & scone at North End Coffeehouse before heading back to San Diego. The door & brick wall were too cute & practically screamed "this is perfect for an outfit shoot." I wasn't prepared for an OOTD post, in fact I was wearing no makeup whatsoever, so I hope you enjoy my naked face.


My shoes were dusty from exploring & I'm chill with that. I'm a blogger, social media professional, & digital influencer but I'm not perfect. I have pimples. I have stretch marks. I have chipped nail polish. But most of all, I am human.


I'm just going to put that out there. I want to say publicly that I'm not always put together. I don't always have a flawless Snapchat filter to enhance my face. I'm a traveler, a writer, a tea lover.  So here I am as I am. Hope you like it. :]

  5. I actually love it when I can wear a piece over and over but with varying ways to style it. You know how have a good piece of clothing if you can wear it in more ways than one!

  7. I wear my jackets a few days in a row if it doesn't smell, no stains. So that's perfecting normal for sure. It looks like you had a great time in AZ!

  19. Exactly, & it's great for travel too since you don't want to lug around 50 giant suitcases. Versatility is key. :]
