Full Skirt in Balboa Park

A date night in Balboa Park is nothing short of perfect and on this night I wore my favorite skirt from Anthropologie. Now on to my babbling on about the way we dress (or not...)

I am always intrigued to talk to other ladies about their personal style. I have friends who exclaim that they rarely ever get dressed up or do much with their makeup and I have friends who still love to experiment with style and trying new looks. I don't think there is anything wrong with either way of life, different things are important to different people, but it does open up the dialog in such an appearance obsessed society.

My personal philosophy is that I would rather be done up. (You can never be over-dressed or over-educated right?) I like to look nice for myself (and my husband) and truly care about what look I am putting out into the world. Don't get me wrong, there are times that I am in my sweatpants with my hair in a messy bun and no makeup and it is FANTASTIC, for a little while. I do not think I would feel very good if this was my look everyday though. I secretly wish this was the 1940s (as far as dress only) and people still got dressed up to travel, visit with friends, go shopping, and to dine out. It's kind of disappointing to go out to eat and everyone is in jeans and flip flops :(. Maybe that's just me, I like to be entertained by fashion and I love to see you all in your killer outfits.

What do you think? What is your style philosophy? 


  1. Oh I like trying new looks but I'm usually a classic girl... think Kate Middleton... you look lovely and the photography is amazing...

    1. I love Kate's style, thank you Hope!

  2. I continue to be stunned by your photography skills Amber, get it girl! You look gorgeous and this skirt is such a fun piece. I'm so with you on wishing it were the type of environment where people still got dressed up to grocery shop and hop a train into the city (however, there are some days that I like to bum around)!

    1. Thank you Chelsea, what a nice compliment! Everyone deserves to bum around from time to time!
