LookBook: Simplicity

chelshoot2-35Sometimes a little simplicity can go a long way.  Not every outfit needs to be full of color and patterns.  A simple look like this relies on the fit of the clothing to make it chic.  I also matched my bag to my shoes to make the look appear more intentional and not just grab-and-go.

These jewels are rentals from my Rocksbox subscription.  If you want to borrow your own, give it a try for a month free by heading to Rocksbox.com  and use my code ‘wanderinginheelsxoxo’ at checkout.

LookBook: Seattle Shenanigans

DSCN2267We recently flew to Seattle to celebrate a very exciting graduation for my man’s sister.  She graduated from Commercial Dive school!  How crazy cool is that?!  For the big event, I went classic chic with a knee length skirt and sweater.  It was a little colder than I thought it would be so ended up wearing this faux leather jacket basically the whole day.  I got a gross bug bite on the side of my toe that was really bothered by my Charlotte Olympia kitty shoes I was planning to wear so I wore my sandals all day.  Even in the rain!  I guess I am a California girl so we can get away with things like that… *wink wink*

LookBook: The Bucket Hat

chelshoot2-19I love this hat so much.  It makes me feel like a modern Downton Abby character.  Now all I need is a snooty accent!  Just kidding.  With all that in mind, it just made so much sense that we would shoot this look at the trolly station.  We even had a photo bomb from a guy passing by!  Check my Facebook or Instagram for that pic.

LookBook: Spring Transition

chelshoot2-4In San Diego, transitioning from winter to spring isn’t as extreme as most places (I’m looking at you, New York!) but there are a few things I look forward to still.  I move my heavier coats into the garage and dig through my shorts to remind myself and my white legs what I own.  I’ve come to embrace my paleness and don’t bother with sunless tanners anymore.  I get tempted by the latest greatest sunless tanners on the market but I’ve never found one that looks quite right.  Oh well!!  I’m still taking these pale legs out!  My favorite way to transition into spring/summer is to wear shorts with a sweater or jacket.  It’s a comfy easy way to layer for the cool evenings.

P.S.- I found this rad Chanel bag at a consignment store here in San Diego.  I basically fell on the floor when I found it.  My momma taught me never to pay full price for anything (not that buying a Chanel 2.55 full price was ever an option)!  Try checking out online consigners like Shop-Hers or TheRealReal to score your designer deal.

Definitely one of my favorite jobs is when I get to assist with styling runway shows.  These photos are from the Beauty Trend Show at Nordstrom Fashion Valley.  This event is particularly fun because we get to go a little wild with print on print action and lots of bold colors.  The hardest part of the job is trying to not come home with every single thing (and the 6am call time)!  I’ve provided links for some of the items under the photos for your shopping pleasure!

Lust List: Aurelia Probiotic Skincare Miracle Cleanser

DSC_0034No highlighter necessary!  With that “glow from within” look all the rage right now, skip the makeup and get the real thing!  This cleanser has quickly become my favorite step in my cleansing routine.  Its probiotic and peptide technologies lift away all the grime from the day while moisturizing your skin and protecting it from premature aging.  To use, you simply apply to dry skin, massage, and use the provided ridiculously soft bamboo muslin to remove.  Before using this product, I usually start with a cleansing oil to get all my makeup off then move on to the Aurelia Probiotic Skincare Miracle Cleanser to feed my skin.  The herbal smell of chamomile, eucalyptus, rosemary, and bergamot is simply heavenly too!  I highly recommend giving this cleanser a try!  Try the Aurelia Probiotic Skincare collection here!

This is not a sponsored post.  I just like to share great finds with my readers.  Enjoy!stilettos
