Storybook style at the Dickens Christmas Fair (and a mini themed capsule)

Last weekend I visited the Dickens Christmas Fair at the Cow Palace in Daly City (or, as their promotional materials occasionally dubs it, the Imperial Bovine Residence)! I've seen ads for it around BART for years but I always assumed it was just some indie craft fair. I finally looked it up and learned that … Continue reading Storybook style at the Dickens Christmas Fair (and a mini themed capsule)

Travel Capsule: 8 days in Washington DC and New Hampshire, October 2019

Last month my partner and I went on a trip to DC and NH. He went to college in DC and I hadn't been there before, so we did all the tourist stuff, ate a lot of great food, and met up with his old friends.

Sometimes I feel like I'm the only person who writes travel outfit posts who doesn't mindΒ  packing up without them. Got back recently (it was recent at the time I started writing this...) from a short trip to Portland, … Continue reading Travel Capsule: 5 days in Portland, Oregon Fall 2019

Outfits September 1 – September 9 2019

In order to blend in with the changing foliage, the Margaret's outer coat turns various shades of yellow, orange, and red while maintaining some green once autumn begins. Just kidding, I wear fall colors all year round πŸ˜› Also in the bay area there isn't really much fall foliage anyway 😒 Saving September 11 through … Continue reading Outfits September 1 – September 9 2019
