What I Wore: Just Chillin’

Casual lookWe’re so lucky here in San Diego to be able to soak up the sun while most of the country is dealing with Arctic temperatures.  It makes me feel like I need to be outside every second to take advantage of it.  This cardigan is so flowy and fun that you don’t really need to wear much else with it.  Just a long necklace and basic brown boots with a pop of leopard print was all I did!  For just relaxing outside, it was comfortable and I felt good in it… we don’t need much else, right?

Hippy Chic Birthday Brunch

Hippy chic look

My friend recently had a Hippy Chic themed birthday brunch in Ocean Beach.  Why don’t we do themed birthday parties anymore?!  It was really fun to get dressed up with a specific idea in mind.  The birthday girl even made us all flower headbands to wear at brunch.  Let’s bring back themed parties!!  This is my take on a modern hippy look.

I’m Wearing White After Labor Day… Gasp!

White pants

I’m committing a fashion crime… and I don’t care!  That whole “No white after Labor Day” thing just seems silly!  I mean, for a lot of the world, it still feels like summer.  And for one hemisphere, summer is just getting started!  So why no white?! Let’s boycott!

Hammer Time

Me with my Sole Society HeelsRemember those gorgeous shoes Sole Society sent me to style?  Here’s the complete look!  Since the Kadene shoe has such a great mix of tough and feminine, I decided to do the same with my overall look.

I wore a pair of leopard print slouchy pants (that I like to lovingly call my “hammer pants”) and topped it off with a simple silk blouse.  To toughen up the look, I layered on a few gold chain necklaces from H&M.  Finally, I added a pop of color with my red patent leather Kate Spade dot bag and a red lip.  For those of you looking for a great red lip that actually lasts, try the YSL Glossy Stain (I’m wearing number 9).  It’s really the best ever!

These shoes are sure to be a staple in my wardrobe.  They’ll look great with jeans, skirts, dresses… you name it!

White T-Shirt And Jeans: Vol. 1

I’m a huge advocate for simplicity.  You’ll often see me in the classic white t-shirt and jeans combination (I titled this Volume 1 for a reason!) but I’ll add my style to it with some fun accessories.  Everything gets taken up a notch with leopard print heels (am I right?!) so these Calvin Kleins were perfect.  Choose a nice deep overdyed skinny jean with a little fading to keep it on the nicer side of things.  I like to reserve my light blue jeans for a boyfriend cut or shorts.  Otherwise I feel a little too… ’90s.

To top it all off, I pile on a bunch of fun jewelry!  I found this necklace at a vintage shop in Laguna Beach that has since closed down.  I was crushed to see it go!  What a gem…  Anyway, throw on a bunch of rings and that simple outfit now has some style!

One of my favorite vintage finds ever!  It makes every outfit better!
