School Boy Crush + VOTE, VOTE, VOTE!

Spent another day in the city, this time in the Sunset district, exploring and doing one of my favorite things -- eating. Originally, I intended to do some shoots for my blog, as I've gathered quite a few outfits I've been dying to photograph. But, the San Francisco sun finally went into hiding the one day I had off (soooooo typical, right?), so instead of settling for mediocre photos, I decided to save my outfits for the sun and spend the day chowing down. DJ took me to this delicious Pho spot (which you will see later this week or next), and a cute little ice cream shop, Polly Ann's, for some dessert, where I got a scrumptious junior sized pistachio-almond flavored ice cream. I have to take a moment to talk about how adorable this ice cream shop is. First of all, the prices are meant to tempt all the after school kids. You can get a scoop for just $2.20, they have an endless and ever-changing array of flavors, you can bring your pup and (s)he will eat free, and, if you can't decide on a flavor, you can spin the wheel and let them choose for you! I don't really know how much better it can get. Basically, I'm pretty much hoping to score a Valentine who will buy me flowers (tulips are my favorite) and bring me back to this ice cream shop for a date. Speaking of, I'm now accepting Valentine's Day offers, so holla at yo gurlll. Just kidding...kinda... unless you really want to wine and dine me, haha!



Okay guys, this little girl was sitting next to me, and her mom stepped away for a few minutes. She was staring at me with those cute little button eyes, so, naturally, I couldn't resist snapping a photo. Look at how absolutely precious she is with the ketchup on her face and her little hands holding on to that hot dog with the jaws of life. I'm pretty attached to my food too, so I can totally understand.
Tights, bag, and socks: Forever 21; Boots: Cathy Jean; Flannel Shirt: Nordstrom (Men's Department); Sweater: Random; Necklace: c/o MyNameNecklace; Photos of me by: DJ Lan; All other photos by: Chandamheer

As for my outfit, a few weeks ago, I did that thing where I like something so much, I buy them in two's or three's. Apparently, I can no longer blame that on being an Aquarius, because some funny guy named Ophiuchus decided to ruin the party for the rest of us and cause an astrological-identity meltdown for us humans. But, from what I have gathered, these new horoscopes only apply to those born after 2009, so I think my Aquarius traits are here to stay. So back to what I was saying before that lengthy digression, I bought three flannel shirts. I remember scanning through the rounders and thinking, "Man, this would look AWESOME...on me." And, since I know you are waiting for the point of this story, here it is: I bought all three in the men's department. When one of the salespeople saw one of the shirts I got, she made a point to mention that she just got the same shirt for her boyfriend, and he now "lives in it." I politely chuckled, while imagining myself all warm and toasty in my comfortable new flannel shirts. I have always been a firm believer in wearing what makes you comfortable...and warm.

In other news, I've finally created a Facebook page for my blog and a Chictopia account! Both are slightly confusing and I'm still trying to figure out the nuts and bolts. I invite you all to "like" my Facebook page, and "fan" me on Chictopia. Apparently, I need 25 people to like my page before it officially becomes a page, so if that link doesn't work, just search "pancakeSTACKER." So pretty please click that little like button for me!


FINALLY, I've decided to enter Refinery 29's Next Big Style Blogger contest



I would really, really, appreciate it if you would VOTE for my blog! All you have to do is search for my picture (Chandamheer)  and click the little red heart next to my photo! Since, I just entered, I should be found in the "most recent" category. In order to vote, you must log in with your Facebook account, and since you are already going to be logged in because you just liked my page, you don't even have to worry about it! But really, it would mean so much! Right now, the top contender already has 370 votes! Since you can only vote once, every vote counts, and I need your help. Thank you all! :)

ahhh I entered the refinery contest as well!

Buuuut do the votes really count? I thought the votes were just for support and that decisions were really made by just the editors?

Either way - good luck!

Whether or not you planned on photographing this outfit, it's super cute AND comfy-looking. I, too, wear flannels under cardigans on chilly days. The boots are a great touch!

Mmm, ice cream...

Bahaha I love how creepy you are and took a photo of someone else's child. I have that urge too - little girls are so freaking adorable, sometimes!

And I love the color of your cardigan. And hard to imagine why anyone WOULDN'T holler at you/wine&dine during Valentine's - you're such a gorgeous girl!

I know! Those flanel shirts are sooo comfy, even if bought in the mens deparment :-P who cares, I would never guess! It looks great on you.

And yeah, Chictopia is pretty confusing for me too. And yes! Asics definitely are the best running shoes ever! Ive had some knee problems with my old shoes but they were gone when I started to run with my Asics.

Im gonna like your Facebook page now ;) have a beautiful day!!

you have such a nice blog :) you sound like a lovely girl and that's what's important to me when I read blogs. The little girl = <3

And I'm definitely guilty of shopping in the men's (or even children's) department when I see something I love! it's just clothes anyway, as long as you love it and it fits, who cares? You look adorable and I'm sure you'll find a lovely valentine! :D
