Steamroller.

Hi everyone! It's new blog post time!  I'll admit I'm a little early as I had planned on updating about once a week, but I had a bunch of free time this afternoon/evening (and the weekend is looking pretty jam packed), so I decided to take my chances on a second post. :)

Today proved to be a scorcher (at least for my Bay Area blood), and as soon as I got home from work I changed into my go-to comfy outfit for a warm day.  Those who know me know that I am addicted to my husband's Adict's t-shirt (no pun intended.. I swear) that I stole-to-own from him about 5 years ago. It's absolutely perfect and comfy as hell and I mean I just.. I would wear it everyday if I could.  I paired it with high wasted shorts and creepers because, that's what I do.  I was having a particularly annoying hair day so I decided to cover it up with my A's hat. Aaaannd then I decided to have my hubby snap a few shots of me on the rooftop of our apartment complex. I apologize in advance for the amateur shots (get yer mind outta the gutter!), we're new at this, but we'll get better.. I hope... I promise!


(I always carry a flannel or hoodie with me wherever I go, because as soon as the sun goes down, so does the warm weather. Also, I'm not as mean as I look)










Details:




There you have it, my favorite casual summer outfit (at least for right now).  Of course I always switch up accessories or details or whatever to add variation to the basic image but you get the idea. :)

Thank you so much for reading and for all of your interest, support and encouragement in this new project/journey of mine.  Expressing myself creatively is extremely important to me, and getting dressed is my engine in doing so.  I am not trying to pretend to be a size 0 fashion princess (I mean, obviously, have you seen my sweet a$$?), I'm just a regular chick living in urban territory, loving life, and learning to love myself.

Love to you all. =^.^=

Begin Again.

Hi everyone!  Susanna here, with my very first post for my brand new personal style blog, lovingly called "Susannicorn", because I truly believe I am part unicorn. :) I used to have a blog that I updated sort of regularly some years ago, but it was kind of all over the place and ultimately I felt stagnant as far as material and what I was trying to achieve for an overall concept/theme.  So I backed out of the blogging world for awhile, but knew I would come back when the timing was right.  That time is now.  I am still trying to iron out all of the kinks and details here and there, so bear with me as this new development blossoms.  

Introduction aside, let's get to it: Summer.  My favorite season, and my favorite time of year to get dressed.  

Pictured below are a couple of summer outfits I've put together, with the first picture being an outfit I wore today:

(You can't really tell from the image, but the top is a bit sheer, so the bra peeking through adds a little youknowwhat to the whole deal.)

Details:



Back to black, and my current favorite pair of shorts (and my all time favorite shoe, always and forever: the Dr. Marten). While I adore pastels (obviously), my favorite color to wear is black, and while black is tricky for summer, I figured out a way to make it work.  I'm super proud of the two images below because I actually managed to get a full on outfit post for this look.. I'm still figuring out camera angles and lighting and whatnot, but the hope for the future is to get more photos of myself where I'm actually wearing the stuff.  Give me time, it'll happen. ;)



Was playing around with filters for this next shot:



Aaannnd, my first post is complete! Thanks to all who took the time to read, and to all who might be interested in following me through this new endeavor of mine.  Personal style has always been a huge part of my life from the time I was a little girl.  I love expressing myself through my wardrobe, hair, makeup, whatever, and I love when other people do too.  It's nothing to be ashamed of, only celebrated.  Be yourself, and the rest will follow (or free your mind, that works too).
