Skippy Says: Takesy Backsy (OOTD)

Ok, I know I just complained about how warm it is in San Francisco and how I am envious of other bloggers getting to experience Fall, but I'm going to pull a temporary takesy backsy here. Although I'm still yearning for my sweaters and boots, the warm weather meant I went to the beach this weekend. On both days. It's October 24th. That's right, suckas. 


Side note: Did you know when you google takesy backsy the first thing that pops up is a question someone posted that reads: "The contract clearly stated no takesy backsy - I do not understand the meaning of the last word. Can you help me? Thank you very much." If only that had been the final exam in my Contracts class, I would have aced it. Oh, and for all my former Contracts classmates that read my blog, "ah, well." 



  




I guess the warm weather can hang around a little longer after all...I mean, if it insists. Oh, and when I wasn't frolicking in the water? Why I was flexing my big guns for Ryan and posing in a random field of crops along highway 1 of course. Now that's what I call a good weekend.









Shop:
- Banana Republic Factory Store top (bought on sale circa 2010, no longer available. Buy similar here or here)
- BCBG outlet shorts (bought on sale for $9 circa 2009, no longer available)
- Anthropologie shoes (bought on sale, no longer available)
- Earrings (borrowed from my mom)

  4. I love clothing with a little something extra, and those belt loops are adorable! They'd make a great DIY for someone with better sewing skills than me. The beach photos are very pretty; looks like you had a lovely weekend. Enjoy the warmth while you've got it!

  23. Yup! Muir beach on saturday, and the one in half moon bay on sunday :) We did the walk from the moss beach distillery to the half moon bay brewery and then back- have you ever done it? so fun! and it's nice that there are drinks waiting for you on both ends :(

  25. i am totally jealous of that gorgeous weather! And you have amazing arms, lady-- AMAZING!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Ummm you went to the beach?? YOU WENT TO THE BEACH????????? Can you tell I am slightly envious lol! Oh we're going to be getting a healthy dose of fall and winter weather for the next 6 months. So lucky, if I could have it my way, I would want 85 degrees everyday, with sun, and no rain...EVER! Love your new header, it looks awesome!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Haha, I totally agree with Bravoe Runway's first line! And your pup is adorable!

  28. This is crazy - summer in the winter! It's been chilly here in DC so I'm not complaining. I got to break out the alpaca sweater already so that's good news. I can't believe you're at the beach. In October. Late October, actually.

    Your new layout is gorgeous! Who did your header?

  30. Thanks Laura! They really don't look like that- I was flexing as hard as humanely possible right there :)

    ReplyDelete
  31. Thanks Bessie- you made me so happy- you're the first one to notice :) Or at least comment on it....I love SF weather, but really it's very rarely like this- between 55-70 most of the year

    ReplyDelete
  32. Thanks so much! I did! I went to the beach both saturday and sunday :)

    ReplyDelete
  33. Thanks Anna!! A girl named Rach did it- I linked to her blog in my FAQ section in case you're interested in getting in touch with her :)
    And yes, it's summer in SF now. But it was freezing all summer. SF is just confused :)

    ReplyDelete
  34. Aw, that's a lot of love- thank you so much Jessica!

    ReplyDelete
  35. I'm seriously jealous of your pictures, warm weather and of course your guns!! Once again I adore your outfit. I really love the details on your shorts. Oh also, I've notice that your blog post updates aren't coming to my google reader dashboard thing...I'm not sure why that is. That's how I normally keep up to date with new blog posts.

  38. Superb! I especially love the doggy in the water - it reminds me of my beloved Myndie in the water - and they look so similar! (Myndie was a black Lab - border Collie - Cocker mix, with the same white crosslike mark on her chest!).

    ReplyDelete
  39. Thank you so much Ly! I wish I cold share some of the warm weather with you :) I have absolutely no idea why you aren't getting updates through your google reader...Can anyone tell me if they're having that problem too? I do post every day Mon-Fri just FYI :)

    ReplyDelete
  40. Thanks!! He is :) I bet it's beautiful in Boston now though- I lived there for 5 years and Fall was always my favorite time of year :)

    ReplyDelete
  41. We don't really get winter....it's kind of between 55-75 pretty much most of the year. But this summer was freezing- close to 55-60 most days, and now that's it's October it's hot.

    ReplyDelete
  42. We think he is a lab border collie mix too! We have no idea really, but that's what our best guess is :)

    ReplyDelete
  43. these are some beautiful shots, and yes, you are pretty darn lucky to still be experiencing beach weather in late october!
    love the pup - adorable!

    ReplyDelete
  44. Those beach pics are just beautiful!!! And the one of the pup sitting is just priceless!

    And I LOVE those shorts! Would have never guessed BCBG!! (You've got some good guns girl!)

    ReplyDelete
  45. Thanks Samantha! He's my cutie :) And yes, BCBG outlet for $9- I couldn't say no that that!
