bandana neckerchief smokey the bear red denim jacket ootd whatiwore2day

I wore a bandana around my neck all summer, folded into a triangle to protect my nape from the high altitude sun. When I was hot, I would wet it in a stream or with my water bottle and use the magic of evaporation to cool me down. The Clothes Horse inspired me to wear […]

This striped tunic came from a clothing swap at the Mockbee (in Cincinnati) in 2011. I used to be really into clothing swaps – online, at events, and with my friends.

Charlotte the FBI Agent

Did you know that ferrets are illegal in California? Or that stray, neighborhood cats are returned* to their place of origin after the shelter spays/neuters, vaccinates, and microchips them? Or that releasing your unwanted chicken into an existing, feral flock usually results in them being pecked to death? I suppose I didn’t need to know […]

Winter Chambray

I’m experimenting with making a lightweight chambray dress work for winter. Today, I layered it with a flannel and thick sweater on top and tights and boots on bottom.

Historic Folsom

In my downtime, I’m researching photo locations for sessions with clients. Today, I visited Historic Folsom. Other than the river and maybe the train station, it isn’t a great spot to shoot portraits. But I enjoyed the sunshine, the scenery, and a porter at the Folsom Hotel bar. Jacket, Jessica Simpson (thrifted). Skirt, Flying Tomato […]

olive perforated sweater buddhist outfit ootd whatiwore2day

I’ve never been to a Buddhist temple or even a meditation group, so I was stumped on what to wear to the grand opening of the Sacramento Dharma Center. Would I have to take my shoes off? Would I be sitting on the ground? On a cushion? Or would there be prolonged standing? Is exposed […]
