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?

Denim on Denim Look

Main Denim on Denim image

I love a good denim on denim look. It’s totally comfortable and really easy to pull off!  How I like to wear denim on denim is to choose one dark version and one lighter version.  With all that denim going on, I feel a little like I could be working on a ranch as a chic cowgirl!  So to glamour it up a little bit, I wear it with some sparkly vintage crystal earrings and a necklace from my grandma.  I’m also wearing a lacy bandeau underneath so I unbuttoned the top an extra button.  Of course I like to top it off with some amazing shiny red heels and lips!  Can you tell I’m into red at the moment?

Tip:  Wear the darker version where you are largest for a slimming effect.  I wear mine on the bottom since I am quite “hippy.”

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!

Red is the New Black

red is the new black outfit

I’m in Washington to visit family and it’s gorgeous here!  These blue flowers in my boyfriend’s mom’s yard are so unique and amazing that I absolutely had to take pictures in front of them!  For my outfit today, red is my inspiration color.  Red is all over the runways for Fall this year and I’m so excited about  it!  I absolutely love it.  To make this look really pop, I paired my red silk blouse and suede booties with a pair of white jeans.

One tip for suede shoes and white jeans is to do a color test first to make sure you don’t rub off color onto your jeans!  Just take the edge of your shoe and gently rub the inside of your waist band (there’s usually a few layers of fabric there so it won’t show through).  If it rubs off, it’s not a match!
