Skippy Says: Deep Thoughts (OOTD)

I decided to change up my usual routine yesterday and spent the day getting some work done in one of my favorite San Francisco cafes, Simple Pleasures. The one not-so-pleasant thing about that cafe is the ridiculously claustrophobically small bathroom. Combine that with my pea-sized bladder and you've got a recipe for a minor panic attack about every hour or so. At least there's stuff graffitied all over the wall that I try to distract myself with so I don't hyperventilate so hard that I end up passing out and falling into the toilet. Today's favorite was someone that wrote "acting tough is the result of fear," with "fear" crossed out and replaced by "beer."







- Modcloth dress (bought on sale during the last 70% off cabin fever sale circa 2010 or early 2011? No longer available)
- Banana Republic lace shirt (bought on sale- no longer available online but I've still seen it in several stores. Buy similar here or here)
- Anthropologie booties (bought on sale circa 2010, no longer available)
- Huge diamond grid tights in brown (buy here)
- Treasure Island flea market earrings

  2. Adore your lace shirt. Lace makes me feel so feminine. Also enjoy seeing pictures of the bridge too since I've never been to San Francisco.

  25. This is such a pretty outfit - love that wine colored body-con dress! And like your new blog header too! That's so fun!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Why do all SF cafes have super small bathrooms?? I have never been to Simple Pleasures but need to check it out - looking good as always!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Aw, you should come back and visit! Especially since you had a good trip the first time :)

    ReplyDelete
  28. Thanks Katherine! Maybe because real estate is so expensive? I'm not sure but I don't like it :) Simple Pleasures is in the Richmond district so it's kind of a trek, but they often have live music and are just a great little neighborhood cafe

  29. Love the new header Skippy! Great dress! Love the details on the side of the dress and the wine color. :D
