where's the snow?

02-28-10
A.P.C. sweatshirt + skirt, Rachel Comey boots, Fjallraven backpack

Went to Japantown to get a new doll while wearing this yesterday. Were we really freaking out about the possibility of snow up until a day ago? I know something light hit Twin Peaks but it wasn't very apparent the next day; in fact, the sky was super clear from Saturday until Monday. Silly San Francisco. It's cold again now but yesterday's weather was so great that I was fine walking around in this.

Posting these pictures just made me think of these three things: 1. I look too pale since I haven't been out in the sun, 2. my hair is too crazy because I need a haircut and haven't cut it in months, and 3. man, those scars on my knee are ugly, how do I get rid of them?

Mederma for the scars! It works wonders.

Francesca said...

love your mustard skirt! and of course the booties are fantastic.

Shelby said...

you can hardly see the scars but using bio oil works really well. i love that skirt too, btw!

Jenny said...

You are so lucky you get to walk around without a jacket! Its toooo cold in London.
I like the 'crazy' look of your hair (I have a preference for 'messy' hair =P). If you can get it in the US, Bio-Oil is supoosed to be good for getting rid of scars.
Love the colour of your skirt

Annabel said...

vitamin e! anything with that in it. i used to have a huge scar like halfway down my leg that i got from a broken wire hanger and i just kind of messed around with different vitamin e products and it got way better.

ps. i love your hair. its unruly in a good way!

coca butter for scars! pregnant women use it to get rid of stretch marks

Caitlin said...

HAHA, I live in the Bay Area too, and thought it was super dramatic how the weather people were freaking out about the snow, and then.....nothing. haha the weirdest/funniest thing is that they never acknowledge that they were wrong!

Anyway end of rant. I really love the color of your skirttt!

i love the pairing that you did with the skirt and shirt. it's like dressy but the sweatshirt makes it so casual

pau said...

great combination your sweatshirt with that yellow skirt

Genevieve said...

Totally agree. Was up early on Saturday morning awaiting snow... weather.com fail ): There's supposed to be a huge rain storm blowing through the Bay Area tonight-tomorrow morning though! Love the mustard skirt (:

Hannah Percyowl said...

I think Vitamin E is the official scar-type-thing, but maybe something with aloe vera could work? Just keep you skin nice and elasticy/moisturised occasionally should help.
Love that yellow skirt, I've seen them everywhere lately >.<

Kacrates said...

back to basics <3

But yeah japantown is awesome. The one here in NY is cool as well as Koreatown.

And the knees: I got the same problem. I hear shea butter?

The Sound of Lace said...

you look great...messy hair is the best...i dont even notice the scars and pale means cancer free!!
adorable skirt!

I've been considering a Fjallraven pack but I'm still unsure whether it's worth how much it is. Do you like yours? Also where would you buy one in San Fran?

Loving the mustard yellow skirt and those shoes are really amazing!

Alexandra said...

the scars? try tanning your legs ,it might do the trick. Some friends of mine do.

I hate changing weather. I mean, one day you're out in skirts and the other you have to wear fur because it's freezing! It's the same over here,so I understand.

Oh golly, you're so adorable! I love the simple outfit. Bummer about the no snow! I guess that's SF for you!;) Hopefully you'll get some soon, though.

Even when your hair "needs a haircut" it still looks adorable!

Hello! I'm a new follower. Was glancing through blogs and the blue and mustard caught my eye - love your skirt!
Glasgow is much the same as SF at the moment. I need to carry sunglasses and a wooly hat - you just don't know what the weather's going to do!
