Ok so apparently...I no longer know how to smile in photos??  Whenever I take blog photos, I try to do a slight smile, but then when I see the photos I look like this.  I think when Whit and I got to take photos together, it felt more natural...we are usually laughing anyway!  Now that she has been super busy working (although we are going to finally hang out again this weekend!!!), we have been taking more photos separately.  Smiling just feels so unnatural when you are taking photos alone :/

INSPO // Gingham


Click image to go to source.

Since we have been wearing and style-stalking gingham so much lately (as you can see from recent posts), we thought we might as well do a whole inspo/shopping post.  There are so many ways to wear it....skirt, crop top, playsuit...it all looks cute!

I have been aware of Filson for a while because my brother Tyler is a devotee (he cannot say enough about their canvas bags and backpacks). I was not aware they had a women's clothing line that launched in 2016.

Filson is a very function-driven brand, making all-weather, quality pieces (I mean...they were founded in 1897 as a "complete outfitter for miners, prospectors,  and lumbermen").  You can definitely see their roots in the styles they offer.  Oh...also, they offer a Filson LIFETIME guarantee, so you can feel confident about your purchase.

I selected the Libby Bomber  because bombers are timeless (or at the very least they always come back into style). It is a lighter jacket that is perfect for spring/summer over a top, but is also roomy enough to fit a sweater underneath for chillier months. But honestly, one of the main reasons I really like this jacket...it has SO many pockets. It is a big pet peeve of mine (and most women) that women's clothes often have tiny or non-functional pockets.  This jacket has two front button-closure pockets (as you can see), and behind those are hand pockets (with a liner to keep your hands warm!) and INSIDE the jacket there is another zip pocket.  I have worn this jacket out and FORGONE A PURSE. Incredible. It was nice to experience some male fashion privilege.

INSPO // Ruffles

{Click photos to go to source.}

Ruffles are still going strong, and we are here for it.  Ruffles just feel so airy for summer and can add some ~flair~ without adding weight.

See how we wear ruffles:
Cold Shoulder
Flutter Sleeves
Ruffled Lace
Wine Country Getaway
Denim Ruffles

We are in a gingham mood...two posts in a row! I like how Whit's post and mine are only a week apart, but you can see how much the weather has changed.  We've been enjoying a warm patch the past weekend and I have been enjoying being able to skip the jacket (although I have been itching to break out my own Filson jacket...stay tuned).

Ever since picking up rock climbing, I've become quite a dirtbag.  I gravitate toward clothing that is outdoorsy and comfortable.  The problem is that I usually end up looking like I'm going on a hike even when I'm not.  That's why I'm loving this Filson jacket.  While it can work for the outdoors, it works just as well when I'm walking around the city.  My favorite part about it is that it's water repellent.  It's perfect for foggy/rainy San Francisco. I feel invincible!

Vivace Microneedling Experience with Blackhawk Plastic Surgery

Photos by Rene
Note: I received Vivace Microneedling courtesy of Blackhawk Plastic Surgery. All opinions are my own.

As I have mentioned before, I have long struggled with my skin. You can read about my journey to clear-ish skin here.  Now that my skin is mostly under control, I am more focused on my acne scarring.  To be fair, I got away fairly easy...I don't have deep pitting, but I do have some texture on my cheeks as a reminder of my former acne. After a skincare consultation with a very knowledgeable nurse at Blackhawk Plastic Surgery, she suggested Vivace Microneedling to help with the scarring. Because my texture is fairly mild, microneedling is a gentler alternative to laser resurfacing.  

Click through to get the nitty-gritty on the procedure...and to see some not-too-flattering-but-very-informative-photos on how it works and the results!
