Can you name that song? If you can, you’re my kind of people!  I couldn’t think of anything clever to rhyme with leather (HA, I just rhymed…), when all else fails, quote Sifl & Olly!

I’ve been on the lookout for a faux leather jacket for a while now, and for some reason I have issues buying a jacket made entirely of leather, but not leather shoes. Weirdo right here! I had been stalking this jacket on Forever 21’s site for a while (since the SF store NEVER has the same stock as online, boo!), but I was hesitant to buy since their sizing is inconsistent. Plus I didn’t want to spend $50 to get the free shipping. I finally received a free shipping code, so I went online and bought it!

I went a little “rocker” and paired this with my Taryn Rose booties, a printed tunic and polka dot Rock Star jeans from Old Navy.

Speaking of Urban Bazaar, if you are ever in San Francisco and happen to be in the Inner Sunset, you HAVE to stop here. All the products sold there are either local and/or fair trade. I always find the best gifts there and some great accessories for myself, too! The best part is the stock is always changing, so every time you go in, it’s like a new store!

Back to fashion talk! It’s been way too warm/humid this summer to really wear this jacket out. Every time I do, I get overheated and end up taking it off any way. Ugh! I can’t wait to wear it when it’s cold enough this winter.

How do you like to wear leather in the summer? Maybe it’s time to invest in a leather skirt 🙂

Hey, girl, hey! I’m back! Did you miss me??

So, where have I been, you ask? Oh, I’ve been around. Just too lazy to write anything, but I have been working on content for the site! June gifted San Francisco with some amazing weather, so I was out and about with my friend Kerry and her monkey, Sloane (by monkey, I mean the cutest 2 year old EVER!). They live near Noe Valley, so we like to take walks with Sloane and hang out in the sun whenever we had the chance.

It’s also birthday season come June/July, including mine and my husband’s birthdays! My husband and I share the same birthday, how crazy is that?! I love sharing a birthday with him, he won’t ever forget, that’s for sure! Plus, our birthday is the day before a huge national holiday AND we share it with Tom Cruise (which used to excite me more when I was younger and pre-Katie Holmes days…what happened to him?!?!).

For my birthday this year, I wanted flowers. Permanent flowers. My husband gifted me with these:

California Poppies by the awesome Katie Gray!

Two and a half hours later, voila! It was the longest I ever sat for a tattoo, and I was gritting my teeth the last hour. Meditation helped a little, but it’s hard to focus when there’s a needle on your calf! The leg takes longer to heal due to blood flow when you’re standing vertically, so I swelled up pretty badly the first week if I was on my feet too long. The night of my birthday party, I didn’t notice I had a huge cankle until I went to change for my party. I had to elevate my leg most of the night, I felt like a bad hostess, but my friends were so awesome about it!

Karl the fog comes to visit in July, so leaving the house is harder. I’ve been interviewing a lot lately, so I’ll share some of my interview outfits in upcoming posts, as well as some San Francisco “summer” outfits (aka Winter 2). I also picked up some awesome new foundation by Tarte that I will review for a Make-Up Monday post. So stay tuned folks! Ms. Jones is back!

If you’re interested in getting tattooed by the awesome artist who did mine, check out Katie Gray’s work. She’s working out of One Shot Tattoo in SF’s Inner Sunset. Katie is crazy good, she’s super versatile as well (just go check her stuff out already!).
