Just Add a Hat!

Wandering In Heels Brixton HatOne of my fashion philosophies is “When in doubt, add a hat.”  When I’m dressing casual, I feel like a great hat pulls my look together.  You could wear a plain white T and jeans with a great hat and Voila!  Instant style!  This Brixton hat is my latest go to and I love it!  I kind of feel the same way about booties too.  They works with everything from skirts to jeans and are so on trend.  These ones I think I paid like $8 for on Amazon 2 or 3 years ago.  I’m such a deal hunter, paying full price actually hurts me!  Keep searching and no doubt you’ll find some really great cheapies out there!

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!

My Look for a Hot Day

Outfit of the Day

 

I don’t know about where you guys are but here in San Diego it’s still hotter than Hades! Oh and the humidity is like one million percent!  So that being said, it’s a mini skirt and tank kind of day.  I still need to bring a jacket since everyone has the A/C blasting to arctic levels so a little jean jacket is the easiest thing to throw on and stay stylish.

Orange and blue is my favorite color combo so when I picked out this skirt this morning, it was a total no brainer for me to pair it with an orange tank.  I kept accessories in the same color family too with accents of gold.  I can’t wait for it to cool down though!  I’m ready for some fall fashion!

Stay cool and Stay classy!

White T-Shirt And Jeans: Vol. 1

DSC04439

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!

Gorgeous Day for a Wander in San Diego

Town2

It’s a gorgeous day in San Diego.  Perfect for a little wander through town!  I kept it simple today since I was having a simple day out on the town.  Since I was planning on doing a bit of walking, I turned to my ultra comfortable Cole Haan with Nike Air Technology sandals.  Seriously, I could play basketball in these heels!  So a few hours of wandering and I’m blister free!  Score!  Paired a gorgeous emerald green drop sleeve top with boyfriend shorts and added some fun Samantha Wills accessories.  Voila!  Ready for the day!!
