Day 21, Tuesday: A list of links to your favorite posts in your archives

This was hard to narrow down, but I'd have to say:

- Monochromatic in gray is my favorite outfit post. It's the most aesthetically pleasing outfit but also the most high maintenance with the conversion of a lace dress into a top.

- PFC #11: Vacation Vogue is my favorite outfit challenge post. Now if only I take my own advice when packing for vacations.

- Speaking of vacations, my time spent in SF/Napa is my favorite travel post. Sometimes I'd re-read to drool over the amazing cuisine... but only when I'm not hungry. I hope to visit again one day!

- Shopping & Finances is my favorite serious post. The title says it all.

- My favorite photography post consists of candid outtakes. There hasn't been any more goof reels since because the self-timer on my current camera is much quicker in-between shots. That might be the only feature I miss about using a point-and-shoot.

  1. Love the linen pants -- I need a pair myself! xo

  2. I love white linen pants! I have a hard time pulling them off - mostly because I'm worried about how wrinkled they will get!

    Your outfit is so cute. :)

    Take Care

    1. I've given up caring about wrinkles. It seems like no matter what I wear, my clothes all get wrinkled after a workday, haha.

      I think the trick to photographing linen items is using backlight because the wrinkles are less noticeable ;)

    2. lol - So true. Backlight helps!

      I have an office job and I'm sitting at my desk for most of the day with minimal breaks. You would think that, since I don't move around so much, my clothes wouldn't be wrinkled by the end of the day. ;)

      Take Care!

  3. Kudos for pulling off linen pants. I donated mine since I can't stand how wrinkly it gets! I've since learned that it's something for me to admire on others, but not so much for myself.

    Btw, love the vacation in vogue and shopping & finances posts!

    1. Yep, I have to agree the key is to not care about wrinkles when wearing linen (or in my case, clothes in general) ;)

  4. I just realized that you wore these white linen pants with flat sandals. I went back a few of recent posts and looks like you've only worn them with flats. Is it because of the length or because you like them with flats? For me, I usually like my wider pants to be longer and wear them with heels (maybe cause I'm 5'3") or else I feel like my legs are cut too short.

    Reaches the Sky

    1. Yep, the length of the pants look awkward with heels. I tried it once early on and quickly dismissed the idea. If I could do it over, I'd have bought the pants in a longer length for the exact leg-lengthening reason you stated.


I'd love to hear from you. Constructive criticisms welcome!
