I was just chatting the other day with some of my coworkers talking about how when I get the urge to purchase some type of item in particular (tops, dresses, pants, bags, hats, etc) I go ALL OUT with purchasing more than one. I’m not sure if it’s my excitement from just loving some particular style of a piece but in reality it’s kind of a sad and weird obsessive behavior. Recently I was sitting down and thought, man I need some new bags, I feel like I’ve been wearing the same ones! So just like that I started jumping online looking up top handle bags. I was really inspired by the Celine Top Handle bag but alas, I’m trying to save for a house so that dream flew out the window.
Quick little outfit today that I am absolutely in love with. I got both of these pieces from Zara during the Black Friday promotion. The checkered high waisted pants are my new favorites so expect to see them in a lot of Instagram / Blog posts! I was hesitant to believe they were actually high waisted based on the website images (you can never fully trust those can you) along with Zaras reputation for mislabeling things as high waisted.
Two things that go great together, sweaters & wide leg trousers. Spent a day in the office and wanted a simple yet sophisticated look. I can definitely say this sweater is just as soft as it looks (not to mention my coworkers dog fell asleep in my arms whilst I was wearing it) and the trousers have the perfect fit that falls nicely on you and only required a slight heeled boot for myself.
Sometimes you get the perfect combination of feminine with a masculine twist. I think this paper bag waist skirt from River Island fits the bill of adding a classic color to a more modern shape. I decided to offset the more masculine elements of the skirt with a really cool off shoulder puffy sleeve striped blouse (tucked in ever so slightly). I really love how the skirt hits so high on the waist so you can easily tuck in a blouse and create a dress like silhouette.
I’m so excited to be partnering with one of my favorite brands River Island! For the longest time I was so bummed out to find such incredible pieces but realizing that they were only UK based :(. BUT lucky us, there is now a US site! *Cue applause track. I picked up this adorable tee that reads “I love you forever” in French.
I had an amazing time at NYFW this year and although I hit the end leg of the week it was still an amazing time. The second day of shows and previews I was lucky enough to share with my French Connection US family. I wore this incredible look all via French Connection! This look was the perfect outfit to wear with the incredible weather we received that day.

Thanks so much to Lulus for sending me these pieces to post!
Ok, I don’t care what anyone says but these ruffled wrap dresses are EVERYTHING. Not only are they so flattering on but they definitely can accentuate a lot of different shapes! For myself being flat chested I have some trouble with the top portion but a cute bralette quickly solves that problem. This is the perfect dress that you can wear casually, to work, or even dress up for a wedding!

Cooked up this new look (literally) on one of the hottest weeks in So Cal lately. I buckled down and finally got these amazing pants from I.AM.GIA that are the perfect mix of street style inspired with a feminine twist. They are perfectly high waisted and feature a flattering elastic hemline so you can wear them higher or lower on the leg. To create a really fun somewhat Jeremy Scott inspired look I threw on this mesh back flame crop top from Forever21.

So excited for getting back into the Fall swing of things shortly! Seeing Halloween decor popping up in stores and with plaid and camel tones peaking out of retailers it can’t some soon enough! I just received this gold ruffled satin crop top from Urban Outfitters and was excited to dress it up a bit with my Lacausa uniform trousers that hit perfectly at my waist.
Blogging definitely has it’s ups and downs. There are days where I’m so inspired and am loving what I’m wearing, and of course days where I have something in mind whether outfit based, location based or creative direction based that just doesn’t work out. Today was one of those days where I had a long day at work and had to be creative after the fact. The sun was setting (quickly) and it was one of those moments where no matter where I stood I felt like I wasn’t getting the kind of shot I was looking for.
