I created a perfectly balanced spring street style look with my beloved leopard wedges, well-loved Hudson jeans, delicate silk blouse, and pearl earrings.

Sweater Dress + My Love of Shoes

Sometimes an outfit just needs some simple, layered clothes and fun shoes.  I am a shoe person, what can I say.  After coming to the realization a couple years back that my wardrobe consists mainly of solid clothes and a wide variety of funky shoes, I’ve tried to branch out — buying striped shirts, printed pants, and pattern skirts.  However, time after time I find myself subconsciously throwing on the same ensemble.  It has become a pattern of simplicity with my feet doing all the talking.  Every time I walk into a department store, I locate the shoes first thing.  Maybe because I always thought my feet were my worst feature {making shoes the perfect distraction} or maybe it is just wired into my brain, but one thing is for sure, I will never get tired of finding that perfect one-of-a-kind shoe!

These photos were taken moments before a torrential rain storm struck the Central Coast of California {and I am not being one bit dramatic} I layered a sweater dress under a suede, moto jacket and paired them perfectly with funky patterned shoes, of course!

Rainy Day Neutrals

DSC_5849

There is something so lovely about the rain — the sound of rain drops hitting windows, the overcast sky, and the promise of a bright rainbow peaking through the clouds.  But I think most of all, it is the thought of being cozy {with layers, boots, and a hot latté in hand} There is something so comforting, yet spontaneous about the rain.  It comes unexpectedly, yet leaves without a warning.  I’m usually one who wants to brighten up gloomy, rainy days by wearing colored rain boots and accessories, however today I felt like blending in to the moody atmosphere.  I layered tone on tone neutrals, with scuffed up black boots, and just a touch of blue peaking out from under my monochromatic ensemble.  It does not rain too much in California {especially Los Angeles} but when it does, I like to cherish every drop, splash, and puddle.

Frame Game

One of the things I love about blogging is taking a risk with the unexpected.  I am your guinea pig, but I am happy to do it!  For the past couple years, optics have been transformed into a fashion statement.  Frames have become bolder and reflect the wearers personality and character.  Thick black wayfarers seem hipster, while sleek cat eyes a little more retro.  There is so much personality with this one little functional accessory.  Working on your frame game has become a thing.

I don’t have bad vision by any means, but after spending long amounts of time reading and staring at a screen, my eyes become tired.  This was the perfect excuse to get some glasses for reading {and wearing out and about on occasion} I originally chose tortoise, rectangular frames that were great and could go with everything — they are timeless, but not exactly trendy or fashionable. However, a couple weeks ago I stumbled upon these beauties {the color is what got me} When thick frames started to become a trend, they were mainly in darker colors, but with spring and summer coming along, dark can be a little too heavy and harsh. Opt for a lighter or even clear frame, like mine.  They are fun and bring so much brightness to your face!

Leopard + Leather

For a day of thrift and antique shopping, being comfy is key.  I paired a soft leopard print sweater with a matching camel colored hat, comfy loafers, and threw on my leather vest for added complexity.  Unfortunately, the weather got the best of me so I had to change out of my ripped boyfriend jean shorts for my sister’s Citizens of Humanity jeans.  However, the upside of my outfit change resulted in finding a new favorite denim designer.  I’ve never had a pair of Citizens of Humanity jeans before or tried them on for that matter, but I slid them on and they fit like a glove.  If you are on the search for a new pair of jeans, I recommend giving CoH a try!

It feels like yesterday that it was December, we were secretly awaiting the proposal of my sister and her now fiance, and all the merry festivities of the season.   But somehow January is almost behind us and we are becoming naturals when it comes to wedding dress shopping.  This weekend was so wonderful — from experiencing our first dress store in Santa Barbara and a weekend escape at Mr. C hotel, to really great food and company. It is such a foreign thought to me — being constrained to one outfit, one dress, that everyone is going to remember on your wedding day.  How do you pick one perfect dress out of thousands? Luckily for me that day is in the far future, but for my sister it seems like trying on a bunch of dresses is the way to go.  She found that she loved unexpected ones, while not liking the ones she thought she would love — it is a silly and at times annoying game we all have to play.  However for me this weekend, shopping came in the form of a blue leather vest, sweater, and a funky cheetah print sweatshirt!

Snow Style

Take me back to these mountains, with my friends, laughter, and adventure.  I’ve been back to school for a week now and I still am thinking about last week’s trip to Vail, Colorado.   It’s so hard to get back to reality after so much fun and excitement.  It was my best friends 21st birthday last week and little did she know, I was going to accompany her on that very special day!  I had so much fun celebrating, attempting skiing for the first time, and experiencing a new environment.  Even though we missed the snow fall by a day, I am so thankful for everything.  Vail is one of my new favorite places — it is so beautiful and the fur coats are out of this world.  Traveling is about making memories and that is just what we did!
