I’ll never stop loving trench coats. I purchased one a few years ago for a trip to San Francisco and I’ve learned a lot from that particular coat. What I have been quick to understand is that a lot of trench coats are built larger (for layering) so you have to understand how to wear it properly based on what your goals are. For us here in So Cal, we don’t need to layer as much so a thinner more flexible trench is something more appealing.
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.

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.
There’s something about a huge oversized sweater that I’m just instantly drawn to. I’ve also been notorious for wanting to wear them during blazing hot Summer months. This oversized cropped sweater is something out of a dream, oversized sleeves with a cropped bottom and you’re ready to go. I decided to pair this cropped sweater with a bralette (since it obviously rides up all over the place) and specifically a Calvin Klein one to give that sporty edge.
I’ve recently been attracted to matching denim sets but haven’t found the exact matching pair (it’s a lot harder than it looks). While this isn’t exactly a set, I was able to find two perfectly paired pieces with the same color stitching to create my own! The white denim jacket is from Urban Outfitters as part of their new BDG Denim launch. I decided to add some color into the mix with a vintage inspired Tommy Hilfiger tee (from Urban as well) and my favorite, and I mean FAVORITE clear strappy heeled mules from Zara.
Happy almost 2017! I’ve been reflecting a lot during the Holidays as well as stressing. A New Year always feels good, refreshing, and a great time to get a new start however the end of a year can seem overwhelming, stressful, and seems like time is running out to get everything you need finished. I’ve been blogging since 2012 and it’s been a whirlwind. This year I saw real growth on all fronts of my blog plus, I achieved my major 2016 goals, attending Fashion Week and traveling more. With trips to San Francisco, New York, Florida, and Big Bear, it really was a year to look back on with pride.
Staying cozy this past weekend in Big Bear with a few favs from Urban Outfitters. I decided to take a mini getaway with my husband and into some cooler weather. This was actually my first trip up to the mountains and I have to say it was incredible. Cool mountain air and relaxation was exactly what I needed.

Went for a real 90s inspired look for thrifting this past Sunday out in LA. I purchased this black cami crop top from Urban Outfitters and haven’t looked back! This piece is perfect to pair with skirts (as seen here) as well as high waisted denim or trousers.
Finally took the plunge and purchased this button down corduroy skirt in black from Urban Outfitters. It’s been a great piece to pair with sweaters, button ups and some off shoulder tops. Transitioning from day to night is made real easy with this little number. Today I paired it with one of my favorite new pieces, this soft mock neck sweater that tucks perfectly into the slight high waist of the skirt. This is one of the greatest pieces you can purchase as a staple in your wardrobe. You can make it more modern or keep it classic with the 70s vibe.
I also have been wearing these heeled mules by Shelley’s London with my everyday wardrobe. They are exactly what I look for in everyday heels, not too high and they are also slimming on your leg. It’s finally getting a little chillier here in So Cal so I’m very excited to pair this skirt with some of my tights and knee high boots for evenings out!
Summer is just about over and I can feel Fall creeping in. Especially in retailers. I’m a huge fan of purple/plum tones for fall, and for some odd reason I’m transitioning into color as fall approaches, sorry about it summer. I grabbed this windowpane tunic cross front top from Urban Outfitters and it lays perfect on the body. It also adds some class to any of your high waisted pieces whether they be skirts, trousers or shorts. Now while I mention I’m adding “color” into my wardrobe please note I’m still leaning towards the darker colors but hey its a step in the right direction. I paired the blouse with my latest addition to my skirt collection (slowly growing) this little envelope style wool mini skirt from Aritzia. Let me tell you, during my short visit to San Francisco I was shocked, nay, amazed to find an actual brick and mortar Aritzia store so of course I had to buy a few things…
You might say this outfit looks a little uniform like but what better way to welcome everyone back to the school months of fall than with ankle socks and loafers?
