Pardon the picture overload. I had a full out photo shoot while waiting to get into the UNCORKED! WINE FESTIVAL, and it was well worth the 45+ min wait. I highly recommend it for Bay Area peeps. Unlimited wine tasting for 5 hours...yes ma'am!

On to the outfit...I got these oversized sunnies from TJ Maxx for 6 bucks. I wasn't sure about them because this is not a shape I would typically go for, but for $6, I figured I'd give it a shot, and I'm glad I did. I really like them. What do you think? Is this shape ok for my face?

I also scored these velvety loafers for dirt cheap from the DSW clearance rack, and I have been wearing them like crazy. Somehow fuchsia suddenly goes with everything in my closet.

And last but not least, THE PANTS. O, the pants!! Words can not express how much I love these GAP PRINTED SKINNY MINI KHAKIS (and not just b/c my nickname is skinny mini). I'm slowly collecting them in every single print. 

P.S. There's still a little time to enter my iPod GIVEAWAY!

This is not a look I would typically post on the blog, but I had my camera and a photographer for the day, so I figured why not. Besides, if you happen to run into me on the streets on a lazy Saturday morning or afternoon, this is what you'd see. So why not share it, right? 

P.S. I have 3 pairs of Sperry's and they are BY FAR the most comfortable shoes I own. 

wearing: j crew shirt (love this TEACH FOR AMERICA TEE),  joe's jeans, sperry fisherman shoes, nasty gal horizontal cross necklace (SIMILAR), tom's sunglasses c/o (VERY SIMILAR)

worn to: the farmer's market, brunch and sip beer at THE LAKE

To belt or not to belt? That is the question. What do you think, is this dress better belted or not? If you follow me on INSTAGRAM then you likely already saw the picture of how I actually wore it. 

wearing: ali ro dress (love THIS one), prada heels (sold out but THESE!!!!), thrifted belt, nordstrom necklace
worn to: drinks and lounging at PRESS CLUB
