Distressed Denim

I am the type of person that enjoys change — changing seasons, styles, environments.  The unknown and unending anticipation, always evokes a sense of excitement for me.  This past weekend I’ve been very busy moving back down to Los Angeles for school, so unfortunately my time dedicated to blogging has been cut short.  I am slowly acclimating to my new surrounds and trying to find my daily routine.  This Fall heat wave took me by surprise despite the changing colors and leaves falling to the ground.  For the upcoming season, I think I have found my go-to ‘casual chic uniform’  consisting of ripped jeans {though they may be swapped out for shorts if the heat continues} a silk blouse, and natural hued accessories!  Finding the perfect pair of worn out boyfriend jeans has always been a struggle for me — too ripped, too baggy, wrong cut — until recently  when my mom decided to abandon her favorite pair of old Hudson jeans.  Naturally distressed denim, soft to the touch, and fitted in all the right places, these turned out to be just what I was needing.

NYFW: Hints of Lemon

lemon yellow, nyfw 2015, spring trendsEvery year when the shows come around I find so much excitement scrolling through the runway looks and watching, then re-watching all the videos.  I guess you could say trend spotting is one of my favorite pass times.  This year I was overjoyed when my favorite color {a light, yet neon-esque lemon color} was spotted on the runway multiple times. Yellow is probably one of the harder colors to wear but it always seems to make any look so happy and sunny.  Some of my favorite hints of lemon  that showed up during NYFW were at Nanette Lepore, DvF, and Carolina Herrera.

Contrasting Colors

Even on days when I only feel like wearing sweats and my hair pulled back in a pony {sans make up} I still try to wear something that looks halfway presentable.  I think that is the problem with most of us — it’s not that we don’t have cute clothes to wear or personal style, it’s just that we get lazy.  But because of the wise words of Coco Chanel and selectivity in the closet, I now have a couple go-to looks that are put together and make a statement, but with out trying to hard.  One of the most effortless ways to make a statement is with contrasting colors.  Color blocking is so fashionable and can easily still make you feel like you just rolled out of bed in your pajamas.  Find soft jeans in bright hues, a plush white tee, bold accessories, and you’ve got yourself a stylish ensemble.

“I don’t understand how a women can leave the house without fixing herself up a little, if only out of politeness.  And then you never know, maybe that’s the day she has a date with destiny.   And it is best to be as pretty as possible for destiny.” – Coco Chanel

Transitioning to Fall

fall fashion, fashion, fall trends, fall transition, fall transitional fashion, style, fashion blogger, cashmere dress, layering, fall layersEverything around me seems to be slowly transitioning to fall — leaves are turning red and orange, canned pumpkin and Halloween decorations lining store shelves, school bells ringing, and new fall fashion trends. Fall is my favorite season but for us Callifornians, it’s not quite cold all day long {sorry for always seeming to talk about the weather} so in order to feel festive while not being sweltering, I went with a cashmere dress, button up sleeveless blouse, short booties, and a maintence free ponytail. This hairstyle feels so middle school to me {probably because my hair was in a pony everyday from 6th to 8th grade until I thankfully learned about hair products} However, it can be super clean and chic with straighten hair while controlling fly-a-ways on a windy day.  Suede western booties {look out for them in your local Skechers store this September), rose gold aviators, and an edgy studded bag creates an eclectic, perfectly ‘fall transitional’ look that somehow seems to go!

Happy NYFW and come back for another daily dose of fashion.

Summer Style

I had a wonderful and very back-to-school appropriate outfit all planned and ready to go, until summer decided to finally act like summer with an incredibly hot forecast — if only there was a slight breeze! So instead I took a very minimal approach with detailed shorts, a light silk tank top, strappy sandals, and my favorite bag {Sorry if you are getting tired of my Marc, but I’m sure not! It just seems to go with just about everything} Don’t get me wrong, I do love summer, but I always feel like I am trying to find a balance between staying cool and hiding myself from the sun.  The heat and harmful rays irritate my skin causing sunburn, heat rash, and unseen skin damage.  However after a short trip to Sephora, I found the perfect antidote.  I highly recommend Clarins sunscreen – it is so lightweight, non greasy, and perfect for everyday wear.  Now I feel like I can embrace summer {at least the few weeks we have left} and this beautiful sunshine with bare shoulders and summer style!

Back-to-School Style

It is that time again — it comes and goes every year with mixed emotions.  No matter if you are in middle school or college, we all experience the same thing.  It is the time when we are excited to see friends and go back-to-school shopping yet not actually do any homework, we have no idea what to expect or how big our course load will be, and we can’t figure out if we should be wearing shorts or layer jackets and scarves {at least this seems to always happen to me}  But somehow the perks always seem to out way all the hours of reading, late night studying, and endless amounts of coffee.  I love seeing the smiles of old friends, hearing about summer adventures, and of course the clothes! Something about needing a new cute outfit each day {not that summer months are any different but I do find myself being a bit more laze} excites me! For me class doesn’t start for another month, but the back-to-school shopping and outfit combination juices are flowing! Especially during the beginning months of school, it is that awkward time of the year with cooler mornings which turn into scorching hot days.  In order to be prepared for all climate changes, today I paired a comfy striped dress with a jean jacket {a BTS staple} with edgy biker boots and a jeweled headband.  This is a great BTS outfit template because you can easily mix and match with a different dress or boots.  I would describe my back-to-school style as ‘casual chic yet comfy with a little edge’.  How would you describe your BTS style?
