Sometimes a shoe comes into your life and sweeps you away. We had actually used these babies recently in a Nordstrom Fashion Show I worked and I couldn’t leave without them. They’re definitely a show stopper! Not to mention platforms are so in right now. This skirt is actually shorts with heavy pleating on the front to give the illusion of a skirt. I would never be comfortable in an actual skirt that short! One gust of wind and you guys would all be getting a show! No, Thank You!
I’m not sure why but I love food shaped/printed clothing and accessories. They just make me happy in the silliest way possible! This watermelon clutch is no different. It’s essentially the easiest conversation starter too!! I originally thought pairing it with this raspberry print dress would be too much but… whatever! Summers call for flowy silk dresses. I love how light this dress feels! It’s going to be an easy choice for the upcoming super hot San Diego days. Gladiator sandals are really ‘in’ right now and I like the subtlety of these ones. They’re kind of a pain in the buns to get in and out of since there is no zipper and I have to relace them every time. Ah the things we do for fashion.
Sometimes 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.

We 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*
I 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.
Recently I had an interview for a very cool position. I’m not going to jinx it by giving away any details just yet but cross your fingers for me! The position is more on the creative side of things so I wanted to show my personally a bit but still be first interview professional. Now I’m a very girly girl most of the time so this rose print pencil skirt fit the bill perfectly. The peter pan collar makes the otherwise plain silk blouse much more interesting. And the pointed toe basic black pump make this staple shoe modern. I felt like I could take on the world! Wish me luck!!
Normally I’m the most girly of all girly girls but sometimes I just need a comfy top and denim type of day. Scored this ridiculously soft Bella Dahl top at the Bloomingdale’s friends and family sale. It’s so soft it’s like daytime appropriate pajamas! The high side slit gives it a little more of a sexy vibe than its “I borrowed this from my boyfriend” counterparts. If you aren’t being ironic by pairing your plaid shirt with a fluffy skirt or sparkles than distressed denim is just an easy “Do”.
This perfume bottle purse is just too fun for words. We spotted this gem walking home from dinner one night and I had to go back and get it the next morning! It was at one of my favorite vintage and novelty shops in San Diego called Bad Madge. It’s a fantastic destination for unique gifts and really really cool vintage pieces.
