I’m absolutely getting the biggest FOMO right now with everyone out at Paris Fashion Week so the best way for me to cope with it is dressing the part! I’ve partnered up with River Island once again to create this look! I’m loving their studio plaid wrap tie waist blazer based on the intricate detailing it has on the sleeves and on the back of the jacket which has these gorgeous clips lining the entire back.

I am loving this summer weather and my hair that is getting blonder by the minute! I received this amazing off shoulder blouse from Posh Square and I’m seriously obsessed. It’s lightweight, soft, and has some tie detailing on the sleeves that really pulls everything together.

Ankle Flattering Shoes

Ankle Flattering Shoes

You know you’ve grown up in style when you finally purchase more than one pair of shoes per season (previously limited to: one pair of sandals for summer, one pair of boots for winter/fall, and a pair of torn to shreds tennis shoes). I have accumulated quite the collection of footwear over the past few months and I must say I now feel closer to Carrie Bradshaw than ever before. Something I’ve found a real passion for is finding shoes that flatter my ankles. (I really do have a strange concept of areas on my body I find flattering). There’s something about slenderizing them that makes them look great in #fwis or #sotd photos. All of my Instagram friends can understand.

Shoes with a nice dip beneath the ankle, pointed toe, and a tighter fit to them look great with minis & cropped skinnies. On the flip side adding a little strappy goodness to your ankles doesn’t kill their vibe either (if your as obsessed with the Isabel Marant sandals above as I am). Happy shopping!

Very much inspired by the 70s as of late. Here are a few items that are a must have for me.

Bandit Brand – If you want some iconic 70s inspired tees that give you a mix of rock n’roll and a western outlaw look no further. Their lace tanks are perfect to pair with some high waisted denim and booties.

Mattise Footwear – The Keegan bootie is the perfect neutral for your bell bottoms any day of the week. Looking like you stepped off of a dude ranch in style.

Spell – An incredible assortment of feminine, bohemian, free spirited clothing that keeps you on your toes. They have the kind of designs that would look good on or off.

Ripped Knees

I’m in love with these jeans from ASOS. After seeing them on The Native Fox I really loved the fit and color. I’m always hesitant to buy jeans online since I’m not always aware of my sizing (especially UK sizing) but I gave it my best effort and ended up with the perfect soft pair of denim that hugs you in all the right places. Kept it simple with a black tank and my green army button up. Perfect outfit for spiced iced chais, pastries, and a perfect view of the ocean.

So as you might have already guessed…I chopped off all my hair! I feel lucky to be one of those individuals who isn’t super attached to my hair. I’m constantly bored with my cuts so going short just seemed the right move, it’s a vicious cycle. Either way I really like it and hopefully it will reflect well in my style.

Just a quick post today, I received this jacket for Christmas after almost making the purchase a few months back but turning back on it. So glad my mom kept it in mind for me! I am obsessed with leather jackets and the green just really seems to pop for fall/winter. What you can’t see in this picture is the back of the jacket which sits higher up on your back and crosses over. Will definitely be posting more of this jacket when the time comes considering we were losing light quickly today! I also grabbed these boots from Zara with the gift card Nick got me for Christmas. Although they are a size too big they are incredibly comfortable and hits in the perfect spot to wear with mini dresses this spring!

80s Denim Jacket

I have been searching for the perfect oversized denim jacket for this coming fall. As much as I love the clean cut men’s wear monochrome madness that my style spews at times, nothing will ever drive me away from my casual oversized throwback clothing or as Nick like’s to call it “Classic Stephanie Outfits”. Instead of spending all weekend lounging around watching football I got us out of the house for once to visit the Rose Bowl Swap Meet. It was just as awesome as I remembered (I got my prom dress there), definitely should have worn boots or tennis shoes however because my feet were aching. I picked up this jacket along with some garlic fries that just about stuck with me until this morning. I would highly recommend going, whether you are looking to spice up your home decor, pick up some thrifted clothing items or just to laugh at all the wacky knick knacks people have accumulated over the years you won’t be disappointed with the selection.

Parking is FREE but get there earlier (right at 9 should be good) because the lots fill up fast. Cost of regular admission is $8.00 after 9 am and be sure to have PLENTY of cash which was one of the mistakes I made. Happy hunting!

I’ve been very intrigued by the “sporty” fashion trend I seem to be finding in stores like TopShop and online at NastyGal. Might explain my strange attraction to mesh jerseys lately. Almost unknown to my subconscious I put this outfit together before heading to the office. While I traded out this American Apparel wind breaker for a blazer later in the day it really helped pull the whole sports inspired look together. Not to mention my absolute favorite riding pants I purchased from TopShop. I not only can get away with wearing these at work but they are the most comfortable high waisted pants I have ever worn. The white stripes on the side give this look exactly what it needs, that 80s sport vibe.

Minnie Mouse snapback was also placed in for some additional fun :)
