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!!

Fashion Week San Diego: Day 3

FWSD

 

San Diego Fashion week continues with another fashion show for emerging designers to win the votes of the viewers.  The audience got to see some amazing work tonight.  There was everything from edgy swimwear, to bright floral swimwear, to amazing hats!

The Rancho Coastal Humane Society also did a doggy fashion show!  If you ever wondered what a warehouse of collective swooning sounded like, you would have heard it during when the first pooch entered the runway.  These cuties will have no problem finding homes!  I got a great seat tonight (and my camera decided to start functioning again) so I was able to get some fun shots of the show.  Here are some of my favorites!

Have an Awesome Day!

Awesome day

Today is awesome.  Why, you ask?  Well other than my super “Awesome” Topshop sweater, it just is!  So I felt like wearing hot read lipstick for no reason other than it felt like a red lipstick kind of day!  Do we really need a better reason?!

Have an awesome day!!

My Birthday Suit

Birthday Jumpsuit

Not that birthday suit!  My jumpsuit!  For my birthday dinner, I got spoiled with a beautiful sunset at Bertrand at Mr. A’s in San Diego.  We sipped delicious wine on the patio while watching the city lights flicker on and the planes fly in right at our eye level.  It’s one of my favorite places in San Diego for a view of the harbor, downtown, and the sunset.  The happy hour patio menu is really reasonably priced too!  My mom and I came here once and shared ahi sliders, truffle fries, and 3 glasses of wine for only $36!  Anyways, back to my birthday jumpsuit…

I really love a good menswear inspired look.  So I went to with a Ted Baker jumpsuit with shorts and a faux wrap front.  Every outfit needs the perfect pair of shoes so these gorgeous cutout oxford heels from the Sole Society Julianne Hough Collection were the best bet.  They’re so unique and surprisingly comfortable.  I’ll be wearing these straight through the holidays with dresses, trousers, and more!  Not to mention, my complement-o-meter was going through the roof on these gorgeous heels!  Doesn’t every girl love that?  Top off your menswear looks with an ultra feminine piece of jewelry and you’re good to go!  All in all, it was a gorgeous evening and a wonderful addition to my already great birthday.
