Architectural Colors

by jennine on March 5, 2010

It’s always easy to spot San Francisco, just by the colors of the buildings. I’ll see a window in the background of an outfit shot and know that lady is in SF. Most of the streets are lined with a multitude soft earth tones and sugary pastels, that and the occasional crazy Victorian building with intricate details. Maybe that’s the explanation of how I’ve been feeling lately, environments are often the subliminal inspiration to how I dress. Perhaps the impending spring that’s just a few weeks away, and like all seasons, I get excited about the shift, particularly spring and autumn. Autumn is when I get into new boots and coats, and spring is when I get the spring fever!

Yes…this dress is a little short, in the mirror it didn’t look that short, perhaps that’s why Alicia Silverstone in Clueless always took Polaroids of her outfits. I’m still wearing the same outfit, but I put another skirt on before I left the house properly, while it’s ok for photos, I didn’t want any real life ‘Don’t Show Cha your Chocha‘ moments. Dear God.

That dress looks so familiar… I feel like I’ve owned it, but I’m not sure I did.

Either way, it looks fabulous on you. Lovely, darling!

maybe, it’s from last season’s urban outfitters… or maybe a while ago, it was on sale…

Wow, you’re really busting out the cool tights these days.

Again, San Francisco agrees with you. You look FABULOUS. Love the way you are doing your hair lately. So cute.

I love the dress, short or not.

Have a wonderful day!

So true - those dusty pastels just scream SF. And for what it’s worth, I think that hemline is perfectly acceptable!

I’ve been looking forward to seeing someone in this beautiful dress, I LOVE what you did with it!! The way you pulled it all together with neutral tones but also added the details with the tights. Gorgeous!! I too am extremely inspired by the architecture around me :) On trips I usually pack everything I own in case my instincts are wrong :)

Loving the outfit, particularly the tights/shoes-the monochromatic thing really lengthens your legs. But the best thing about these pictures is your hair! It looks fab. What did you do with it?


24 Nicole March 8, 2010 at 3:00 am

That entire outfit is amazing :)
Loving the tights!

Have a Super Stlyish Monday, from me, down here, in sunny South Africa ♥
