I got a few days away last week to attend a friend's retirement party. She retired at age 60 after 35 years on the same job (working for the county in insect abatement). They have a surplus of wild boars in the county so that's what we ate -- it was a delicious BBQ.*
Pictures 1/2 -- What I wore to the retirement party and later on at the Valley Fair Mall in San Jose to make some NAS returns. This is pretty much a repeat of one of my favorite outfits.
Pictures 3/4 -- What I'm wearing today. Normally I don't post outfits like these but since it cleared of smoke this afternoon, I was excited to get outside and take some selfies!
Thanks for looking, commenting and most of all -- many thanks to all of you who have offered so much support on my Fire thread in the off topic section.
1/2 -- Jeans Free People, Top Helmut by Helmut Lang, Booties Rag & Bone, Jacket Zara from last summer. All via Shopbop except jacket.
3/4 -- Jeans True Religion (from their store, purchased last summer), tee and belt from H&M, fringe clutch from Tylie Malibu via Amazon.
*Wild Boar details:
For those interested, William Randolph Hearst imported wild Russian boars in the 1920s for his zoo. Some of them escaped and mated with equally rogue, escaped domesticated pigs. The result is a creature weighing 300-400 lbs who is quite destructive to local crops -- the Salinas Valley is a very important agricultural center. I think the hunters had a depredation permit to get these.
