LookBook: Plaid and Perfume

DSC_0037

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.

Celebration of Fashion Runway Show

DSC_0043

Spring has arrived in San Diego which means it’s time to roll out the new Spring/Summer trends.  Fashion Valley Mall shared some amazing new looks from retailers like Boss Hugo Boss, White House Black Market, Scotch & Soda, Anthropologie, Halston Heritage, AllSaints, Ted Baker London, Joe’s Jeans, & Macy’s.  If that lineup doesn’t get you excited, you need to check your pulse!  One of my favorite trends is the boho vibe including platform shoes, flowing maxi dresses, and fringe covered coats and bags.  If only my mom had kept her clothes from her teenage years!  I’d be right on trend!

Coronado Beach Day Look

DSCN0245Sometimes a day of relaxing on the beach with the girls is the best R & R you could ask for.  I got a really annoying sunburn a month or so ago and now I’m hyper about making sure I’m protected from the sun.  I want my super pale skin looking as young as possible for as long as possible!  Other than caking on tubes of sunscreen, I wore a UPF 50+ hat and a long maxi dress topped with a luxuriously soft white Equipment blouse.  Take that, Sunshine!

Blue Skies, White Pants

DSC_0055White pants always make me feel like I’m on vacation.  It’s what I’d wear if I were walking along some beach town, soaking up the sun, and enjoying a beautiful new destination.  So when the sun shines and we’re heading toward the water, white pants always seem to be the perfect fit for the occasion.  Even if the occasion is just lunch!

This is Day 3 of my Take One, Pass it on challenge.  My remixed item for today is pink Dolce Vita pink snake print  sandals.  Check the bottom of this post to see the 3 day Remix Roundup.

What I’m Wearing: Velvet Overalls

DSC06096

You read that right.  Today I’m wearing velvet overalls.  Like the ones we wore as kids… But velvet.  I got these babies on mega sale at ShopBop and couldn’t be happier.  I mean, just try having a bad day in overalls.  I bought these in a size larger than I normally would for comfort but pinned the front flap in a bit to give it a little more shape.  Just a small tip with wearing overalls would be to make everything else a little more ‘adult.’  Meaning, don’t wear ballet slippers or pig tails too.  Then you’ll just start looking silly.  Otherwise, have fun with it!  I was so surprised how many good comments I got while wearing these!  They might just become a staple!!

Donut Kind of Day

DSC06064

After having a cold the past few days, I just wanted to be comfortable and have a little fun.  Nothing makes a day seem a little more playful than when you’re wearing donuts on your shoes and bag!  I mean, come on!  They’re colorful, silly, and topped with sprinkles!!  Happy days are mandatory when donuts are in the picture.  That’s why so many people like to eat them in the morning… I think.  Just kidding.  But really, when I saw these babies at the Kate Spade online surprise sale, I had to scoop them up.  They’re just too cute!  I’m a total sucker during those surprise sales though.  I’ve had to stop looking when they pop up on my social media feeds.  Definitely a little dangerous for the credit card bills…

Jackets with contrasting sleeves are simply everywhere right now.  They make every outfit look like you’re an expert at that ever so chic winter layers look.  I paired this fun denim and terry cloth Gilt.com find with a few more layers.  There’s a simple white tank and a thunderbolt tunic under there too!  I can’t help but reiterate my love of vintage here (again… sorry!) by topping off this look with a pair of beat up vintage Coach boots.  They’re so deliciously soft now that I’ll wear these babies until they fall apart!
