Live In Slouchy Tank (Black) – Joah Brown | Raw Hem Distressed Boyfriend Shorts – Just USA Jeans via Lobby Lab | Ardella (black) Women’s Sandals – Sam Edelman

Quick post on this Monday. Was a busy bee this weekend with wedding activities and Free Comic Book day. Was able to grab a quick post with this amazingly soft and slinky tank from Joah Brown. Living in So-Cal I’m always on the hunt for comfy tanks that feel like nothing for those really hot days. The cut on this top is perfect, the sides are cut high and overlap and the racerback gives your shoulders some love. Definitely give these guys a look for high quality and expertly cut basics for your summer wardrobe.

Ever since overalls came back full force I have been wanting an overall (pinafore) dress to go along with it. Low and behold I couldn’t take my eyes off this linen overall dress from Forever21 when I first came across it. The curse of being a good online shopper is that your bound to run into the cutest stuff in the black hole that is F21.com. Luckily I actually stumbled across this in store unintentionally so I was able to try it on and seal the deal. Not to mention that day I received a 40% off in store one day only coupon and had to use it (side note: Forever21′s email newsletters are actually really useful and fun). This little number was perfect for the scorcher that was Tuesday in Los Angeles. For some odd reason every time I make a trip out there its on the hottest day of the month. Just my luck I suppose? I attended my first press preview on Tuesday and it was amazing. The space the PR agency rents out as their office can also be used as a live-in studio. The location is perfect (right off Hollywood Blvd) and the rooftop was the raddest spot to snap a few photos. If only my office had that kind of view!

Positives of this outfit was the linen blend fabric being so breezy, negatives, the same linen fabric wrinkles soooo easily. I’d recommend getting this one in black for that reason, you can’t really argue with the cuteness for the price.

I’m really looking forward to bigger and better things with my blog. Unfortunately working full time I have to really pick and choose what events I can attend based on, work, traffic, time off, etc. But I am so grateful for the amazing people and brands that have approached me thus far. Just know I love working with you all and most of all thank you to my supporters and readers out there who actually enjoy looking at this stuff!

Lace-Up Nautical Top – TopShop | Flared Clean Wash Jean – Forever21 | White Blazer – H&M Target | Taupe Strappy Heel – Forever21

A crowd pleaser and crowd favorite, the striped tee. This one however comes with a little twist, or should I say tie. The lace up detailing made this one a no brainer purchase (not to mention you have a little more encouragement when shopping in Vegas). I’ve noticed a depletion in the tops & blouses category in my closet, while I love the ability to throw on a t-shirt, sometimes I need something with more detail and draws more attention. This look as you guessed it was inspired by the recent 70s revamp we have seen this season! You can go ahead and say it, again with the 70s mantra? But seriously I just can’t help myself. Porter magazine also gave me some serious inspiration hence for the silk inspired neck tie (thanks sis). When your jewelry ain’t cutting it a silk printed scarf is a great alternative. Also I am still madly in love with my wide leg denim, just don’t tell my 15 year old self I went back ok?

Navigli Crop Top – CSBLA | Faux Suede Button Down A-Line Skirt – H&M (DEAL) | Ardella Sandal – Sam Edelman | Black Denim Jacket – Thrifted | Black Boater Hat – Yellow108 (Similar)

Seriously 70s vibing as of late so I had to hit up H&M to checkout their latest collection. The classic a-line skirt can be worn with just about anything and the suede and button down accents add extra texture and flair to what otherwise would be a pretty simple basic. I went for a more mod 70s approach with my look having chosen one of my favorite crop tops from CSBLA but pairing this skirt with an off shoulder long sleeve crop top is next on the list! The skirt hits the perfect spot on my waist and is a great length for crop tops when you don’t want to expose too much tummy. My favorite part of a-line skirts that are structured such as this one, is that you don’t have to worry about blustery days. There’s nothing I hate more than trying to hold down a skirt whilst carrying a ton of bags for work (they call me the bag lady).

On another big purchase note, these little Sam Edelman babies on my feet are everything I’ve wanted and more. I’m loving the laced up sandal look but wanted something a little more casual that I can wear running around on weekends or even at work (without committing to walking around all day in heels). What I loved most about these was the leg wraps and the short heel that adds a little height into the equation. I’ve already worn them with this outfit as well as with some boyfriend jeans and an oversized button up. They are completely versatile since as you know, I’m not one for having a “boho” style. Just goes to show you that you CAN make an outfit whatever you’d like, no labels need be attached.

Total Betty Denim Skirt – BlankNYC | Oversized White Button Down Shirt – H&M (Similar) | Black Boater Hat – Yellow108 (Similar) | Ankle Boots – Sam Edelman | Lucca Belted Coverup – CSBLA

Grabbed a quick shot of this look over the weekend. It’s finally been warming up so this asymmetric denim skirt from BlankNYC could come out and play. I’ve been interested in the comeback of the denim skirt but hadn’t been able to really commit to purchasing what to me was the American Eagle destroyed mini skirts that haunted me in high school (I’m sure you all agree). When I saw this particular number I knew it would fit the bill for a) uniqueness, um raw and asymmetric hem anyone? anyone? b) length, when working an office 9-5 job you have to at least TRY and maintain dress code. c) satisfied my hunger for a denim skirt, hello Canadian tux…skirt edition.

Even my fiance was doubtful of my purchasing, when noted “I think I want to get a denim skirt” his response “ew”. I guess we are all haunted by those high school Hollister days. Luckily style, as it has always been in my eyes, is completely relative to what you make of it. Pairing this skirt with an oversized button up, some black booties, my favorite flat top boater hat and some deep purple lips can really make it into something else. (no polo shirts here).

On a side note I hope I’m not boring you too much with my subtle backdrops, while it really looks good aesthetically to be honest I just don’t have the time to really location scout. I’m graced with living next to some cool industrial buildings that have some unique looking walls, not to mention around 6pm when I get home from work, the best lighting of your life.

My obsession with paper bag trousers continues with this linen khaki pair from H&M. These are so lightweight and the perfect addition to my spring wardrobe. Not to mention the color really adds something extra (getting a little tired of black, blue, white and grey only). Of course I had to pair it with my favorite CSBLA crop top to keep it simple and some heeled booties for extra leg length. I really do need more heeled sandals and boots. Definitely will be next on my list of purchases!

I’m excited to be able to wear these trousers to work with a blouse tucked in or out and about on the weekends with some fitted crop tops. These are part of H&M’s latest collection so be sure to pick up a pair before they sell out. I also picked up these amazing new sunglasses from Electric and they are the most lightweight and comfortable sunglasses I’ve had to date. Not to mention the style is something I haven’t come across yet, a mix between aviators and round sunnies. Perfect retro vibes all around.

Fashion has such a funny way of switching up as my life progresses. I’m becoming a little more conscious of my purchases now that I actually have to buy items for my apartment, upcoming wedding, dog, etc. But I definitely have my roots in an edgier style that I seem to have moved away from for awhile (doesn’t always help that I work in an office).

Oversized tees with side slits are great pieces to incorporate into your wardrobe, not to mention this olive green color really hits the spot for spring. Tunic style tops are always great to piece together with a pair of super skinny jeans or in this case, faux leather leggings. These leggings are extra special for me because they these great knee slits in them. Makes them a lot more functional for squatting or picking up things. I grabbed both of these pieces from H&M which again is a must shop store for me, its not often you can find cute work, bohemian, edgy and classic styles under one roof.

Accented the look with my favorite pointed toe chelsea boots, my black denim jacket and black boater hat. Can’t go wrong with pieces like these!

Quick post today. Just loving on this new black denim jacket I grabbed at a thrift store. I have been searching for one with the right fit, hits right at the hips, slightly oversized, yet slim fitting. Does such a jacket even exist? Well yes, yes it does when you purchase a men’s small. I kept my look super simple with distressed black denim skinny jeans (with raw hem), a white tank and my favorite Zara Chelsea boots. Lighting was also on my side. Working full time I either have mornings or evenings to shoot looks and with the days getting longer I’m actually really enjoying shooting around 6pm. Not to mention you get some cool shadow play.

Soft Button Down Shirt – Joe Fresh (On Sale) | Flared Clean Wash Jean – Forever21 | Boyfriend Blazer – H&M | Rancher Hat – Urban Outfitters (Similar) | Chelsea Ankle Boot – Zara

I’m pretty much working for the weekend as of late. I can’t tell you how excited I am for a trip this weekend! Checkout my Instagram for a peek into my much needed vacation. Felt like getting a tad dressed up today so I threw on my Forever21 wide leg denim jeans and my favorite button up by Joe Fresh. Anytime I have trouble getting dressed in the morning I always try to grab one staple and one attention grabbing piece. In this case with the slow reintroduction of wide leg denim I’d say that along with the hat are the attention grabbers while the blouse and blazer help balance everything back out.

I really recommend grabbing yourself a Joe Fresh button up blouse, these things are buttery soft and although they wrinkle with the slightest movement it’s really worth the comfort factor (I could fall asleep in this thing!) On a side note I’ve been feeling really nostalgic about my blog lately and really grateful to all of my readers, followers, and supporters throughout the years. Although fashion is my lifestyle I really am happy to have found a “hobby” with so many amazing people attached to it. – Rant done.
