Catch the Breeze Top & Skirt Set – ChicWish | Crystal Nicki Sunnies – Triwa | Tan Suede Flats – Zara (Similar)

Two pieces are now holding an incredibly close place to my heart. Aside from the fact that this Gingham two-piece set is adorable together, these two can also easily be worn as separates. Again, more bang for your buck.

Striped Jumpsuit

Stripe Wide Leg Jumper – Akira | Round metal sunglasses – Ray Ban | Case of the Ex Wide Choker – LaModa

Living for beach nights such as this, especially in such a beachy little number that is this white striped wide-leg jumpsuit from Akira. The pants on these things though, it’s hard to explain and near harder to picture but the legs on this are almost individually wrapped! They elongate the leg so much and when the right breeze hits or if you’re strutting your stuff, a little leg action is sure to happen. This is really versatile piece which is why I’m such a fan, it’s great for those warm So Cal nights when you’re heading out to dinner (in my case with the hubby) and just adding on a cute strappy heel. Or it’s something perfect for your next summer vacay when you’re headed to an evening dinner by the water and under the stars. This really makes me want to head back to Mexico where we traveled for our honey moon!

Camel T-Shirt Dress – Forever21 | Open Front Textured Coat – Forever21 (On Sale!) | Lilly Ankle Strap Heel – Simmi Shoes | Lock Saddle Bag – Forever21

In love with my latest addition to my family of heels, these Simmi Shoes strappy sandals. They are the perfect piece to transition from day to night. Throw them on with a pair of distressed boyfriend jeans and a cute blouse for the perfect daytime look OR create an evening look (like above) with a camel t-shirt dress and overcoat with a crossbody bag.

The Shirt Dress

My latest fashion obsession is the shirt dress maxi. Something about it’s lightweight cotton with the not so flirty hemline makes me think a little less risky business and a whole lot more class. Whether it’s short, quarter, or long sleeve you just can’t go wrong with something as easy to throw on as this. A summer staple for the masses.

Shop some of my favorites as seen above:

Zara Camel Coat

Finally purchased this coat I had been lusting over for the past 2 months. Unfortunately they ran out of an XS so I opted for the small. At the end of the day it worked out better since I intend on wearing a lot of sweaters underneath it and I’m usually a fan of being able to bend my arms completely. Camel accents black and white so perfectly so I knew it would go well with my current wardrobe. Zara has such an amazing assortment of coats for a reasonable price and since H&M sold out of the few I had been interested in purchasing I’m glad I could finally snag this one for a mere $80.

On a side note if you are looking to invest in a coat and aren’t able to splurge I would recommend checking your local GoodWill or other second hand clothing store nearby. You can find really high quality coats for around $20! While thrifting isn’t for everyone, designer wool coats will last a long time and you can barely tell they were ever worn. Why not reuse if you can right?

American Gold

Finally back on my blog game. It’s been incredibly crazy with the Holiday’s and end of the year shenanigans at work. A few weeks back I took a trip to LA for the Spanish Moss warehouse/sample sale. I am pleased to announce I picked up this little fringy number after pulling a ton of other items which ended up being no-go’s.

I usually don’t frequent sample sales just because I don’t live in the LA area but this one was relatively mellow. At one point however another girl was giving me the evil eye because she had the same exact dress on hold which had mysteriously gone missing. After 3 times of explaining that this was not her dress (mine is missing the top button) she backed down…a bit.

I paired this dress with a recent thrifted coat purchase. I stepped into my local Goodwill looking for a 70s style furry coat and low and behold this baby just happened to cross my path. Although the fabric is a little cheesy and it sheds (a lot), it was still worth it. All I need is a pair bell bottoms and I’ll be the spitting image of Jackie from that 70s show!

Time for Tartan

Time for Tartan

I have a mean case of Tartan on the mind. These pieces are such great essentials for winter and fall. If I could buy the middle look in time for Thanksgiving I definitely would but alas, I think time has been cut too short for this one. I’ll hopefully find a different alternative but I believe I will be sporting as similar a skirt as I can find and pairing it with a nice warm sweater.

What will you be wearing this Thanksgiving?

Winter Wonderland

Winter Wonderland

I’m really getting into the fall mood lately. I just purchased this MinkPink Zippora Jumper (shown above) and I can’t wait for the air to feel crisp again. Currently I am lusting over tan and dusty pink over coats and baby blue fuzzy sweaters. Who would have thought baby blue would be such a fall color but it makes me even more excited for winter to come. I am also thinking of getting a sherpa lined moto jacket in the near future. My favorite piece I own is my H&M leather jacket but I would love to have one more winter appropriate.

For those of you who don’t use Polyvore I would highly recommend it. If you are like me and cruise around online sites getting inspiration or window shopping it helps to get all of your ideas down onto something legible. PLus it makes it easy to share with others :)
