I think sometimes people forget or don’t realize how much work can go into a blog post. Usually if your someone living in the city you constantly have a great backdrop whether its marble buildings in a financial district or dirty alleyways in the middle of downtown there is always something that can help your outfits live. Being from Orange County it’s a little more difficult to be as creative as you’d like to be (aside from beach photos of course). Fortunately my fiance and I ran across this little deserted bar and it was might I say the perfect backdrop to my edgy urban cowboy look I had going on.

I have a weakness for lace up pants (as some of you might know from my very early on blog posts with my Zara waxed denim favorites, which btw I found after having lost them for most of the year) so when I saw this camel colored pair from H&M I had to grab them. I had been trying to figure out how to style my latest raw hem denim tank I grabbed from BooHoo and if you’ve been following me, you probably realize I’m a big fan of raw hem denim. Actually if you Google “Raw Hem Denim” and check the images, more likely than not one of my photos will pop up. I gravitated towards this top for the overkill of raw hems, plus it has just right amount of cropped action for me to feel comfortable pairing with high waist trousers or low waist skinny jeans (in this case). I will say that this probably was the worst day to wear pants, once I stepped outside and realized it was 90 degrees out I knew I made a mistake. But hey, do it for fashion right?

On a side note, as a lover of online shopping and getting a bargain I’m always on the hunt for coupon codes or other opportunities for me to save online. Case in point, the top I’m wearing in this post I got for an amazing 30% off! Unlike in store sales, most of the time you can find better deals online (although you’ll have to pay for shipping and wait for your goods). Groupon is a great resource for saving because you won’t need to save anything upfront. All coupons are 100% free to use with over 70,000 coupons from more than 9,000 stores, and they are consistently adding new ones daily. Many of these promo codes are unique to Groupon and you don’t need to be a member to use them!

On my recent trip to San Francisco my cousin took me over to Hayes St. to explore a bit (with what short time I had) and one of the stores she insisted on visiting was Azalea – a small boutique with some big brands and character. I instantly fell in love with their boutique so you can imagine my surprise when I was provided the opportunity to collaborate! First thing that caught my eye was this plaid oversized shirt with a deep v-neck cut. It’s one of the perfect pieces to tuck into a pair of skinny jeans, especially since the blouse is more of a tunic, you get a lot of length on the back while letting it billow in the front. Pair it with a cute bralette and you’re just about ready. Clearly I have an thing for oversized blouses but with my affinity for everything neutral I have been dying to add some color into my wardrobe and the stripes on the plaid are exactly what I was looking for.

I got a ton of compliments on this look, the simplicity of having a dressy blouse with some ripped skinnies and converse that makes a real easy look. Also I finally am changing up my sunglass game with these Karen Walkers thanks to Ditto. For a low monthly rate you can update your sunglass game as often as you like! They have a ton of great designer pairs to choose from and if you use code: UNCONSCIOUSSTYLE you can get your first month FREE.

Trend Alert: Structured Strapless Pieces

Structured Strapless Pieces

So I’ve never been a huge fan of tube tops, to me it says something of Miami in the early 2000s. However a recent update to the piece we all once knew has made me go strapless. By utilizing structured fabrics and creating clean cut lines this once casual weekend top has transformed into a classic work week piece. One of my favorite looks is pairing the strapless piece with high waisted ankle grazing trousers in a fun print or bold color. Throw on a pair of flats and you have the perfect balance of skin on top and a more professional feel on the bottom. If you’re looking to go out after work, throw on some pointed toe pumps and a leather jacket to complete the look. I never knew I’d be such a huge fan of the trend but I must say to everyone that you should at least try and embrace it once, you won’t regret it!
