SF Outfit Day 2: The Black Turtleneck Dress and Orange Zumiez Aviators
Back at the Bridge, but Freezing My Bum Off This Time!
For my second outfit in SF, I wanted to follow a more grungy, edgy aesthetic! Although it’s not Halloween, I had to pull out the iconic orange lens aviators because I knew that they would pop with the all-black look! I got these for 13$ at Zumiez on Black Friday – definitely one of my favorite purchases that day. Honestly, although these sunnies are vibrant orange, they have gone with every outfit I’ve worn with them so far. Advice: don’t fear vibrant shades. They actually add a lot to any outfit!
In terms of the rest of the look, I chose to wear my black fitted turtleneck dress (H&M brand) with my black punk belt and fishnets to pull off the edgy/grungy aesthetic. The nice thing about simple black turtleneck dresses is that you can accessorize them to look fancy, comfy, casual, etc. I could throw on some heels, a red pea coat, and polka dotted tights with the dress and I would be ready for a more dressy occasion! For my layers, I threw on my fave H&M long grey coat. It’s super cute but not very warm, so it probably wasn’t the best choice for a coat on that specific day – but hey it looked cute for the post sooooo haha. For my shoes, I decided to wear my light grey ankle platform booties (I got these from Urban Outfitters a while back, but they are still in pretty good shape!). These are the perfect booties to walk around the city in because they are super lightweight! It’s typically difficult to find platforms that are not heavy, so if you find a pair, snatch them while you can!
Although this was one of my FAVORITE looks on the blog so far, it is probably better suited for a warmer environment. Next time I walk the Golden Gate Bridge, I think I’m gonna wear some pants and a heavy coat lol! Hope you have a great rest of your week!
