Stacker Style: Elevating My Closet

The older I get, the more my style changes - as it should be. For the most part, I'm still very much into comfy casual. I love my sneakers, I wear white tees (like the one above) more than I care to admit, I'm happiest in athletic wear, and I love my oversized outerwear. Having said that, I'm slowly getting better at purchasing items that complement my figure. And, better yet, over the last handful of years, I've ditched fast fashion (with the occasional hiccup here and there). I've been really into Everlane, ever since trying out their clothes for the first time last year. (You've seen my love of their wide leg crop here, here and here). I was pleasantly surprised when Derrick surprised me with these Everlane Oxfords for Christmas. To tell you the truth, I never would have picked out these shoes for myself as they're a little out of my comfort zone. But, as soon as I slipped them on, I was in love. Their great quality and though they're taking some time to break in, I know they'll be a staple in my closet for years to come. I originally received this trench as a gift from Two Feathers. Originally, the trench was a bit too big for me. But, after giving it another go, I decided the oversized fit worked the right outfit. Both the trench and the oxfords are two pieces really elevating my closet right now. And, of course, you can never go wrong with a classic white tee. Right?

Food Friday: A Couple of New Kids on the Block

This Friday, I thought that I would change things up a bit and share two new spots that have recently popped up in San Francisco. If you follow me on Instagram, then you already know what's what. More the reason to hit that follow button, eh? But in all seriousness, both of these spots are affordable, fast, and easy options for filling up. Read more after the jump!

Stacker Style: Bae Love

I grew up as a Niners & Giants fan. My grandma would (and actually still does, lol) watch hours and hours of baseball - it's her favorite sport. Of course, her favorite team is the Giants, so I pledged my allegiance early on. The same goes for the Niners. My parents watched a ton of football when I was growing up. I can still hear my moms screams, cheering on the Niners whenever they were on. Like every team, our Niners have had their up and downs. These last five years have definitely been a rollercoaster for the team, but I think they're finally back on the up and up. I got this Booger Kids sweatshirt years ago, and it's one I plan to hold onto until I have kids of my own. They'll obviously be Niners and Giants fans, too, so they're about to hit the jackpot when I hand over all my "vintage" goodies.

Stacker Style: Textures and Lengths

Another winning piece from my Boxing Day haul are these sweet straight leg jeans that I scored for $30. (I'm getting really good at finding under $50 deals, can you tell?) After taking a gander at my closet and realizing that all my pants were starting to become wide leg crop clones, I decided it was time to stick a straight leg in there. Still kept the crop, because I find them much more flattering on me. I will say that the crop style isn't quite the best for this cold, wet weather we're experiencing, but I'm not above wearing chunky socks and ankle booties, so long as it means I can keep my flattering fit, ha. Thanks to Boxing Day deals, these jeans have gotten gobbled up,  but there are still a few sizes left! These heels are long gone, but I've shared a few similar styles below. The heels (at a whopping $20, y'all!) were a major score from the Zara sale. They're of course a dupe of The Row's original kitten heel, but I'm balling on a budget so the knock-offs were a-ok with me. If you are, in fact, ballin', then I've linked to the originals in a few colors, below. I decided to layer my outwear (for extra warmth) and played with length to give my all-black ensemble a little something more than meets the eye. Texture and lengths are great ways to jazz up an otherwise monotonous uniform.

Stacker Style: Does This Make Me Look Cool?

When I asked Derrick if he thought I looked cool in this outfit, he said that he couldn't tell if he was just so used to seeing me wearing this style of 'fit, or if I really did look cool. Perhaps I'm biased, but I vote for cool girl vibes, right? I got these jeans and this fleece on super duper sale this past Black Friday. Jeans were (and still are) $10 and the fleece was under $20. I got the fleece in two colors because it's just that good and warm. The jeans have made it to the top of my favorite list. They do run extremely large - I am normally a 26/27 waist and sized down to a 25, but honestly, could (and should have) gone down to a 23. Not quite sure why they run so much larger than true, but strap a belt on and you're kinda okay. The coat is an old, old one from Nordstrom - actually a gift from my mom back in like the 7th grade. I'm not joking. How's that for something old and something new? Let me remind you that I turn 30 next month, so 7th grade is feeling waaaaaay long ago.
