PaleOMG Fashion While on Book Tour
Happy Friday!! Have you missed Fashion Fridays as much as I have? I haven’t been able to share any outfits with you guys recently since I’ve been on the road for book tour, so prepare yourself for a photo dump. I have FIFTEEN outfits for you guys. Wtf. Most of them are book tour outfits, but some are just outfits I’ve been wearing in whatever city I end up in. I seriously don’t know where I am right now. Somewhere in Texas.
Last week I seemed to have a couple people unhappy about the price of an item I shared. But I don’t want anyone to be unhappy. Happy people don’t shoot their husbands…they just don’t. Anyone know what movie that’s from? Anyone?? Anywho, I wanted to make sure that everyone is happy, so I’m including a lot of the prices when explaining my outfits, so you’ll know exactly how cheap I find some of my stuff! But I also give you some options such as Splurge & Save items! Just want to make sure all of you are happy, whether you are splurgers (that sounds weird) or savers. Ok, prepare yourself. 15 outfits to go.
Hey, that’s me! Just preparing for a flight to San Diego. 20 days on the road meant two suitcases, a backpack and a purse. I think I did pretty good packing wise.
This dress was for our San Diego signing. I ended up having to get ready in the car. Which meant I had to put on a sticky bra in the back seat, then a dress, then tease my hair in the reflection of the window. Not my best act. But I loved the dress! Especially because it was only $48!
After a signing in SD, I hung around Orange County, did a little shopping and ate the best salad of my life. These shorts come in a two piece set, that I actually wore at a past book signing, but they are perfect to wear just by themselves. They are probably the only shorts I like enough and feel comfortable enough in to wear throughout an entire day. And the set is only $15, so you’re literally getting an awesome pair of shorts for $7.50. Just FYI, I bought a small in both the top and bottom, so they run a little big.
Our next signing was in Manhattan Beach and I was so pumped to pull this skirt out once from deep inside my closet. I mean, where the hell else am I going to wear a skirt that short? Not just going to the grocery. No. This skirt is a couple years old so I linked one that’s $45 and is a little longer and faux leather which would be great for fall!
This dress was for our San Jose stop. I got it because I just loved the little cut outs on the side that just gave it a little more attitude. And it was only $20 so I said eff it. I paired it with a necklace I bought while on my last book tour for my Chicago book signing! I freaking adorable this necklace! Why don’t we have Zara in Colorado?!
After finishing up our signing in San Jose, we hopped in the car to drive to San Francisco. Which meant I wore my favorite shirt dress to stay comfortable during the ride. This jacket is one of my favorites to wear in fall and I’m pumped I found a jacket for $40 that’s super similar since I found this one last year!
I’m totally bummed I can’t find this top OR this amazing necklace for you guys. Because I absolutely cannot get enough of either of them. But I can tell you that I found both at Coco Rose in Orange, CA. That boutique was so beautiful! I wore this outfit at our San Francisco signing then had some dirty martinis on the top floor of the Marriott Marquis. I wish you could have been there to witness these tipsy pictures. Hence why my head is cut off.
After peacing out of SF, we got to Portland and immediately through some clothes on so we could meet up with our friend Kyra for dinner at Andina. I hadn’t washed my hair since a workout that morning, so I threw it in a bun, threw on my favorite jeans, a top that’s only $30, and added heels so it looked like I tried. Boom.
This outfit was for our Portland book signing at Kyra’s Bake Shop. I had been wanting to wear this top and these heels together for a while and thought Portland would be perfect since it might be cooler than anywhere else we were going. This top would be so fun for fall AND it’s only $16! PS – get these shoes, they are so awesome!
This dress I actually found while I was on the road. When Vanessa and I were wandering around San Jose, looking for something to do, we wasted time in the mall at Zara. I love Zara so dang much, as you’ll see from this post. I found this dress and fell in love with it at first sight. And it was only $60! I decided to wear it in Portland when I was on KATU Portland TV. When I walked in, they said that they were surprised I was cooking in this dress, that most chefs weren’t dressed up like me. Welllll, I’m not a chef nor is that my style to not dress up to a TV event. I wanted to prance around in this dress all day long, especially when I was on TV.
After a busy couple days in Portland, we ended our last night at Departure for some of the best food I’ve ever tasted. Man, I love that place so dang much. Nothing has compared since. Since I was running out of outfits to wear, I just threw on my new favorite 3/4 sleeve fall shirt (only $20) and dressed it up with my new favorite heels. Any outfit is dressed up if you add heels, right? Right.
After driving from Portland to Seattle and taking far too long to get there because of the size of my bladder, we rushed to get ready so that we could ship clothes back home, grab a quick bite to eat and still make it to our signing. This outfit was so fall. Which was perfect for Seattle since it was FREEZING that night after the signing. So glad to have one long sleeve top on the tour, which was only $18!
After only spending one night in Seattle, we left for Chicago. And then I got to Chicago and remembered I hadn’t packed anything to wear for Chicago. Luckily, I found a cute boutique name Akira, down the street from our Airbnb that had every piece of this outfit. And the staff was incredibly friendly too!! Loved that place.
Chicago exploring the city kind of day outfit. I just recently got these booties and they will be my new favorite go-to shoes for fall. I mean fringe, come on. The more fringe, the better.
This last outfit was from our signing in Austin last night. It has lace, leather, and a low back. Which means you need it. I got it at Zara and wore it that night! I will probably wear it again with some black leggings and black booties during holiday season!
Thanks for Fashion Fridaying with me today! Only two more book signing to go then I’m back home to my doggy, my guy, and my Colorado fall weather!
