Fall Favorites

Fall is my favorite fashion season for so many reasons! I love layers, leather, and dark lips. I’ve been wearing this striped sweater on repeat since I got it. It checks all the boxes – neutral colors and great for layering. If you don’t have a leather jacket, I highly recommend investing in one. Zara makes a great quality but affordable option as does Topshop. I’ll link some options at different price points below. Growing […]

Stilettos and Stripes

This outfit brings together so many things that make me happy – a great leather jacket, navy blue, a little pattern mixing, and some fierce glasses. Sometimes you just need a feel good outfit and this definitely checks that box for me. For fall, when the temperatures are volatile, it’s all about the layers. This long-sleeve shirt and jacket provide warmth in the morning and evening when it’s cooler but I paired it with open-toe […]

Sunset on Summer

Yes, I know it’s October. Tomorrow is Halloween. But it’s been awhile since I’ve written a new post. If you follow me on social media I have been posting there but I haven’t written a new blog post for a few months. These photos are from my husband’s and my 12 year anniversary weekend getaway back in September. We needed it. We have a lot of things competing for our time these days. This year […]

Spring Shoe Edit

When it finally starts to get warm here I relish the chance to pull out my espadrilles and suede styles. These are my top picks for their fresh looks for the spring season. Each of these pairs incorporates a trend while still being very versatile. The mule trend is going strong and I love these from Marc Fisher! The block heel keeps them comfy while still giving me some height ;). I also love the […]

Denim Roundup

Donning denim is always presents a fun challenge of how to make this timeless staple feel fresh. I’d have to say that I wear denim most days and sometimes it can be easy to get stuck in a rut. Below I’ve rounded up some ways to refresh your denim options – yes, even skinny jeans 😉 Like all good 90’s trends, the split hem skinny is back this season :). I love this twist on […]

The Extra Mile

As you know by now, I’m a big fan of unexpected combinations in outfits. I’m always looking for a way to put a twist on the usual take on an outfit. Here I loved the idea of trying to wear this sequined dress for an everyday look. The over-the-knee suede flat boots made it feel more casual and also added warmth for the winter. This leather jacket in theory could have been too much with […]

City Sparkles

Last week I talked about shopping local at Grace Boutique in Old Town. Since the boutique is known for its selection of dresses I decided to feature one that caught my eye. I’m not normally drawn to dresses but I had fun adding my own flair with this leather jacket. Unexpected elements are always more interesting so I like to pair something edgy with my outfits. This also gives you more mileage from a formal […]

Pieces On Repeat

I have to say this outfit is making me happy right now! It’s made up of some of my favorite layering pieces this season. The vest I’ve been wearing on repeat with outfits like this one or with some over-the-knee suede boots and a big scarf. The beanie is so warm and cosy that I often find myself throwing it on for an added pop of color. The necklace is surprisingly versatile! I love that […]

Cold Weather Valentine

It’s COLD here! Too cold for this LA girl. My one consolation? I can wear this faux fur coat and these red ankle boots. With Valentine’s Day coming up I thought it might be fun to put together an alternative V-Day look. When it’s cold the last thing you want to do is put on a dress and be freezing. I’m also not much of a dress girl even when it is warm so I […]

New Year in Neutrals

My favorite neutral color is navy. It’s actually my favorite color period but I love that it can act as a neutral. I think many of us were taught not to mix neutrals – like if you wear a brown belt you wear brown shoes. This is actually not the case as neutrals are just that – neutral. That means they get along with everyone and should be allowed to mix and mingle ;). So […]
