What I wore:
Tee: ModCloth
Pants: Vintage/Thrifted
Heels c/o Lulu's
Gold cuff & chain bracelet: Thrifted
Earrings: Sarah Safevi (c/o 2011)
Evil eye bracelet c/o Lulu's

I wore this to get back to work

To my surprise, I didn't do too much shopping in San Francisco (remember I went there? Yeah, me neither). Besides picking up a few special things for Chris from Unionmade, these extremely loud pants were one of two thrifted items I brought back for myself. I didn't even really plan to thrift while I was there, mostly due to a warning of bedbugs from a friend who lives in the city. Just the thought of bedbugs is enough to scare me off, but while out and about with a free Saturday in SF, I found myself quickly browsing the racks of a thrift on Valencia street. And these bright beauties were just sitting there at the end of a rack, in what I presumed to be my size. Four bucks later, they were mine. And I have no regrets.

In other news, happy September! Here's hoping it's a little more low-key than August.

I never turn a loud pant print down! My friends and I call these Kenya pants- nicknamed after a volunteer trip to Kenya. These are all kinds of awesome.

Omfg these pants. They're so so good. You look amazing! :')

I thrifted a sort of similar pair with a loud, blue floral print, but I haven't quite figured out how to rock them yet. They're hilarious and so comfy, so I'm determined to make 'em werk!

Awesome pants! I love bold pieces like that. Talk of bed bugs would definitely sketch me out...haha.

those pants are pretty awesome - the pattern is so funky! For $4, those are a pretty awesome score! Oh goodness, I don't even want to think about bedbugs. *shiver*
