What I Wish I Were Wearing

Some mornings I feel like a fraud. I like to write here about fashion and beauty, and then I go out of the house looking like a hot mess. When I have nowhere in particular to be, I like to wear ripped jeans and fleece or a sweat-xedo (a terry take on the traditional tux). Living in a very casual neighborhood in San Francisco just feeds this tendency. I was actually feeling bad for my poor husband because by the time he gets home from work, I have usually showered and put on pajamas. That is one of marriage's slippery slopes.

Yesterday, I had the day off (the SF Giants apparently won the World Series or something, and therefore we must all stop what we're doing and celebrate...), and I was about to go out and work at a coffee shop in leggings and a sweatshirt. As I was lacing up my sneakers, I thought to myself, Girl, you are writing about what to wear, and look at yourself! Put on some real pants...with a zipper and a button. Come on now.

Today, I wish I were rocking anything Olivia Palermo would rock. Someday I'll look like her when I go out. (A girl can dream, right?)

By the way, this image comes to you straight from Olivia Palermo's own Pinterest pinboard, which she named "Me." How do you know you've made it? That's it right there. She has even commented "Wow" on a picture of herself.
