LookBook: Spring Transition

chelshoot2-4In San Diego, transitioning from winter to spring isn’t as extreme as most places (I’m looking at you, New York!) but there are a few things I look forward to still.  I move my heavier coats into the garage and dig through my shorts to remind myself and my white legs what I own.  I’ve come to embrace my paleness and don’t bother with sunless tanners anymore.  I get tempted by the latest greatest sunless tanners on the market but I’ve never found one that looks quite right.  Oh well!!  I’m still taking these pale legs out!  My favorite way to transition into spring/summer is to wear shorts with a sweater or jacket.  It’s a comfy easy way to layer for the cool evenings.

P.S.- I found this rad Chanel bag at a consignment store here in San Diego.  I basically fell on the floor when I found it.  My momma taught me never to pay full price for anything (not that buying a Chanel 2.55 full price was ever an option)!  Try checking out online consigners like Shop-Hers or TheRealReal to score your designer deal.

Denim Jacket Remix

DSC_0066It’s finally that delightful time of year that’s full of warm days and cool nights.  That means layers are essential.  For today’s Take One, Pass It On Challenge item, I’m remixing my Burberry denim jacket to be more of an accessory by tying it around my waist.  It’s part of the look but also practical when the temperatures start to dip.

Unexpected Casual Look

DSC_0171It’s Day Two of my self-imposed Take One, Pass It On Challenge.  I decided that I’d start out by remixing the blouse I wore in yesterday’s look.  Today, I paired it with a beaded Zara skirt for a casual yet chic look.  I don’t know why but I never wear this skirt for nights out on the town.  I mean, it’s a beaded mini skirt so you’d think that’s what it was meant to do!  It’s my fancy beaded day skirt!  It’s unexpected but still totally appropriate for a day time look.  Just add some funky earrings, like these vintage telephone ones, and your look is done!

I’m having fun with this challenge so far!  I spend most the previous day thinking about what I’ll do tomorrow.  Two looks down, 28 more to go!  Wish me luck!

Pants On Repeat

DSC05861I warned you I’d be wearing these pants a lot this winter.  Even though every time I put them on, my boyfriend teases me with things like “You’re wearing your pajamas outside again?”  But when pants like this are sitting in my closet, I’m wearing them!  Pajama look or not!  hehehe.  I try to make it less bedroom looking by piling on lots of jewelry.  Stacks of bracelets glam up everything!

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!

Happy First Day of Fall!

Fall Fashion

 

It’s officially the first day of fall!!  Yes!!  While I wait for it to cool down to full on fall weather, I’ll be slowly transitioning in my cold weather wardrobe.  To do that, I’ll be wearing things like a sweater and shorts (today!), knee high boots and a tank, etc.  You’ll see!  I’m just happy it’s FALL!!!

Done with Summer

Last days of Summer

 

I’m crossing my fingers that this will be my last summer weather post.  It’s so toasty warm here still that my sweaters haven’t awoken from their hibernation boxes quite yet. However, there is still hope!  Tonight was the first night that there was actually a chill in the air!  So I might be just about ready to be done with summer and dressing for fall.  So excited!!  In the mean time, I’m still all about color… not that you couldn’t tell!
