Quick little OOTD for you guys. One can never have too many button up shirts. I am in love with the oversized look of this one, I’ve already worn it as a dress with one of my black lace slips underneath but I decided to pair it with some skinny ankle grazer jeans this time around. I love how sophisticated and clean it looks, probably the 2 words I’d like to describe my style with. You can’t go wrong with oversized clothing for Fall!

Dressing like I’m from New York or something. “Sweater Weather” lasted about 2 hour this morning and I enjoyed every second of it. I tend to get thrown off by the overcast mornings that turn into 80 degree afternoons. Needless to say having a long turtleneck sweater isn’t always the best choice BUT I’m contemplating pairing it with my lace slip dress for some of the warmer days. I’m really pushing for Fall to come can’t you tell?

As you know, my style is kind of all over the place, lately though I’ve been really into minimalism and athleisure styled outfits. There’s something about owning simple pieces that makes it easy to get dressed in the morning. Don’t get me wrong, I love grabbing a thrifted allover print blazer to give my outfits a little flair but it definitely can take additional thought in the “getting dressed” process. When your in a rush to get out the door in the morning (waking up is hard to do) then you are looking for the easiest way to look cute, be comfortable along with work appropriate without spending an hour sifting through clothes.
This new twisted high low skirt is the perfect addition to my wardrobe. Wear it with strappy heels, ankle boots or sneakers. This skirt literally gives me half and half of what I want, a little extra comfort in a longer length yet still keeping it feminine and sexy with the shorter half. With the skirt being fitted I paired it with a boxier top half to balance it out. Can’t forget my favorite new white sneakers either (sneakers & skirts FTW).
I have the pleasure of working alongside Harveys to show off some new and already loved) pieces coming this Fall! If you don’t already know, Harveys was found by a husband and wife duo (Dana + Melanie Harvey) whom utilized some old seatbelts and repurposed them into a fun handbag. Not only are these bags eco friendly, they are also vegan, sustainable and made in the USA. The best part of these pieces are their collect-ability with many pieces made in limited quantities (also they have an amazing collaboration with Disney!). They are making huge strides with their handbags keeping up with the latest trends while staying true to their brands mission to provide handmade bags in the USA with sustainable materials. Be on the lookout for their upcoming season where you are going to find some really amazing pieces. Stay tuned for my next blog post feature for that 😉

There’s something about a pair of trousers I just can’t get enough of. Sleek and sophisticated simplicity. The tailored fit of these pair make them so incredible, not to mention I really prefer having thin straps compared to some other rather bulky ones adds some girlish figure to a rather boyish style. I grabbed this pair from one of my favorite shops at The Lab in Costa Mesa, CA called Lobby. They have a great selection of amazing pieces that are the perfect mix of monochromatic and simplistically detailed items. I’m a huge supporter of buying simple pieces (in black and white apparently) that can be mixed and matched with your current wardrobe. I have the difficult task of buying clothing that can be worn both to work, and on the weekends so mixing crop tops with tailored trousers provides a great mix.
Always have to be looking at the big picture when you’re shopping on a budget and with a few minor dress code rules. On a side note, I apologize for the lack of detail in my photos, this weekend my parents had to borrow my Camera so I have been strictly working off of my iPhone. Hoping to get back into the game this week!
