Day of the Dead

If you follow my instagram or twitter, you may have bore witness to my vacation in February. Ross and I flew to LA, spent a few days seeing the sites, then drove to San Diego. From there, we made our way to Kauai. It was, in a word, fantastic. Excellent vacation. In any case, I knew I wanted to splurge a little on something in LA. It’s not every day that I find myself in Southern California, so I figured I’d indulge in something I wouldn’t typically spend a lot of money on. You know, like a bejeweled day of the dead sweatshirt.IMG_7180

I spent far too much on this ridiculous thing, but when in Rome I guess? I kind of love it.

Skinny jeans: Urban Outfitters:
Sweatshirt: via Kitson
Dark green leather jacket: L.L. Bean Signature
Black quilted purse: vintage, thrifted
Silver sandals: Jeffrey Campbell

The other downright ridiculous element of this outfit was a steal. Jeffrey Campbell wood sandals found at… wait for it… MARDENS! For non-Mainers, Mardens is a haven of ridiculously cheap surplus goods. These babies were $11. I’m in love.


Sometimes you’re just in the mood for stone encrusted skull faces and silver wood heels. Well, at least I am. Have you made any treat yo’ self purchases lately?

About sweetersalt

Salt = sodium = bad. Sweet = calories = bad. Well, isn't that just a bleak outlook. I firmly believe that without salt and without sweet we all just live in a world of lettuce. Plain lettuce. Fun? No. This blog is about life. Namely, my life. But, not that specific. I myself am simply not that interesting. I live an ordinary life, work an ordinary job and do ordinary things. But... life is all about experiencing that feeling you get when you really, really like something. If you don't feel a little warm in your heart when you walk into a farmer's market or try on a piece of beautiful clothing that fits you perfectly (that just so happens to be a great deal!) then you should probably keep on a' movin' from my little plot of internet. Sweeter salt is my metaphor for the good things in life, sprinkled over everything in moderation. Banana? Kinda boring. Banana smoothie - yum! White tank top? Yawn. Statement necklace layered over said tank - now we're talking! I live in Portland, Maine. I love cooking, eating out, riding my bike and approachable fashion. This blog does not chronicle my every waking moment. This is because you will probably not be entertained by the 10th day in a row that I eat the exact same salad for lunch. It does chronicle a healthy, active, fun-filled, colorful lifestyle, in Portland and beyond. It also covers dogs. Cute ones mostly.
