Double D

Outfit Details:
Denim shirt: a gift from a friend
Jeans: Levi's
Shoes: High top Converse

Here I am rockin' double Ds and by that I mean denim on denim. It's a pretty simple look, just make sure that the denim being used is of two different washes (stone wash isn't an option either). Of course I had to sport my American flag kicks to complete the outfit. For a look that's been lovingly deemed a "Canadian Tuxedo" wearing denim from head to toe seems like a pretty American thing to me!


In other news...
A few weeks ago I went with Grant down to San Diego so that he could get his cast off. It was a pretty dreary day (cold and rainy) but we had some time to kill before we had dinner in University Heights so we traipsed over to Balboa Park to poke around and see what fun we could have. Luckily we were able to check out the Natural History Museum--I don't know about you guys but I love natural history museums! I have a huge soft spot for fossils, minerals, and ancient topography so all was right up my alley.

Oh and I totally was NOT dressed to impress. When it's cold and rainy the last thing I want to be is cold and rained on. So no impractical footwear or flimsy dresses for this girl. I always have such a hard time believing that people "aren't cold" when it's legitimately cold outside. So when I see girls walking around beach communities when it's windy and drizzling wearing cut off denim shorts, a crop top, and heels I can't help but roll my eyes. Hard.  But i'm just a grandma masquerading as a 22 year old so what do I know?

Afterwards we had Ethiopian food for the first time! It was so good! Anyone else try Ethiopian food and did you like it? We stuck to the vegetable dishes and they did not disappoint. Have you tried a new food recently? Tell me about it!

  4. Fun/funny pictures! I like the idea of pairing a coloured denim with a classic blue jean shirt, I'll have to try it soon.

  5. i LOVE your american outfit!! its so cute!!! those shoes are awesome too ps i wish i could pull off those but i look like a freak in sneakers :/ you however, look adorable <3

    the nail polish i used is sally hansen's insta dry in snappy sorbet and presto pink (my brother recently told me that color combo is like dunkin donuts but what does he know...i was thinking more spring-like!). this polish is so quick and easy, plus it lasts a while -- i would recommend using them! i do my own nails (and i am actually kind of a freak and will re do them if there are anyyyy chips) so quick and long lasting is key! anddd they have a million colors to choose from! :) sorry for the rant!! xo

  10. I love, love, loveee Ethiopian food! Unfortunately, my boyfriend is not fond of the injera, so that basically means he doesn't enjoy the cuisine since you eat it with everything. But I absolutely love it. My neighborhood is super diverse, so there's tons of Ethiopian restaurants to try. If you and your boyfriend ever come to SD for the zoo or something, I recommend Asmara and Red Sea. If you want a nice atmosphere, Muzita Abyssinian Bistro is great, although its pricier. Great, now I'm craving! haha

  13. I too am a grandma, in the body of a 27-year-old. I am always cold, love butterscotch candy, and take great pleasure in my extensive cardigan collection.

  15. I could never understand why those were called Canadian tuxedos, since it's kind of the epitome of the American look I think. Although I'm sure there're a few cowboys in Alberta rocking it too!

    I was at the Natural History Museum here last week. Awesome except that it was the school break and there were about a million children: I wanted to aim some sneaky kicks around me.

    Ethiopian food is awesome!

  16. "I can't help but roll my eyes" - I know what You are talking about. I work in school as You remember so I have a lots of examples. Many girls looks like it is spring. But it's still big fros outside.

    And what about food? I am a big fun of indian recently. Today I have chickien curry for dinner. :)

  17. I love natural history museums :) It reminds me so much of school trips

    I am pretty reckless wearing skirts and dresses in cold weather but I shudder a little when I see girls do it without the obligatory 37 pairs of tights and cosy cardigan :D

  20. Omg I freaking LOVE Ethiopian food! So delicious. :) I think this is the first time I've seen another blogger who appreciates it as well. Yay!

    I love your tennies in the first outfit. SO CUTE! And I really like your boyfriend's outfit from the museum day. He's a sharp dresser!

    I hope you're having a great weekend. xoxo

  24. "A grandma masquerading as a 22 year old"..lol. I recently told my friends that I am basically a granny! Haven't tried out Ethiopian food yet but I am eager to.

  25. Aww, I should've recognized that shark from anywhere. Of course you went to the Natural History Museum! I'm sorry for not reading the post.. sometimes I like jumping straight to the food pictures... I am guilty. But I'm so glad you went to that Ethiopian restaurant! The name is pretty hard to remember.. I always have to look it up on Yelp before I go.

    It really bums me out that my boyfriend doesn't enjoy Ethiopian food. None of my friends seem to love it as much as I do.

    In response to your question, I actually graduated from UCSD last June!

  26. That museum is so fun! I love natural history museums too. I like all the animals there. One time I saw some scorpions doing it there.

    Please tell me dad about the rule about denim-on-denim! His denim jacket might have been the worst thing to happen to our family, fashionably speaking!

  27. Thank you for stopping at my family restaurant. It is true our prices are a bit higher but my mom (her recipe and is in charge in the kitchen) expects that we use organic, natural fed and locally grown ingredients to make dishes that are reminiscent of the old country.

    Hope to see you soon.

    ps..Love your blog...it is fun
