20 Sep Central Coastside Vibes
My husband and I are creatures of habit. Every year, we go to Pismo Beach for our anniversary, stay at the same motel, eat the same treats (Old West cinnamon rolls FTW) and leave with too many records and knick knacks from antique stores. It’s a no-frills, stress free vacay and we love it. But really my favorite part is packing my fanciest shit to remind this man why he chose this crazy bitch in the first place.
I’d say the letters across my belly are indeed an accurate account of how well I packed, don’t you? But also, here’s my butt:
And this was just day one. That night, we did our usual dinner at the homey country western establishment, F. McLintocks. So I also packed my finest shit-kickers.
Actually, them’s my only shit-kickers. This combo is an oldie and a goodie and that Southwest print dress from Forever 21 has been with me many moons. I also averted a small crisis when I found I forgot my go-to berry red lipstick at home. Before a complete meltdown ensued, I remembered how fucking pigmented my Morphe eyeshadows are and mixed one with just a touch of Burt’s Bees for an instant lipstain that made me feel like a makeup miracle worker.
But our final night at my favorite place in San Luis Obispo, The Madonna Inn, was also my favorite outfit. And a big part of that was because it was a new style, from a new brand, and I DID NOT prepare a trial run. As lazy as I say I am, I sure do love a fashion challenge. But I gotta say, I think it was lit.
Literally. A sunset shoot perfectly captured this gorgeous GCGme jumpsuit in burnt orange. Paired with my blue boots and a major necklace, I think I managed to edge it up to my liking. That alone was my biggest challenge.
The second biggest was getting hubs to stop freaking out about us being late for our resie and just take one more damn picture please thanks.
Worth it. This piece continued to kill long after the sun went down.
And that lipstick got compliments all damn night, which is pretty amazing considering where I was staying. The central coast is NOT the bay. People can be very conservative. But clearly some of them are wonderful freaks like moi.
