Balancing Act

I find myself grabbing my denim Levi’s jacket to finish off any outfit — tied around my waist, flung over my shoulders, or layered over everything.  I know you may be getting tired of it {I actually didn’t realize how often I featured it on my blog, until a few seconds ago while scrolling through past posts.  I will try to refrain from wearing it for a while} It’s just so wonderful because it can be worn in any season, for any occasion, and goes with just about everything.  I don’t think I know anyone who does not like a denim jacket and with the holidays approaching, it is the perfect gift to give.  For family, friends, or even the little ones, a jean jacket is a must have staple for anyone’s wardrobe.  Today, I balanced shorts and my desire to dress for fall by layering it over a sweater.  Simple, cozy, and put together.

Warm Layers

As of the past couple of days, the air has been so cold, crisp, and Fall like.  Every where I go, I hear the crunch of dried leaves and wind blowing them to the ground.  It is my favorite season — coffee, warm fireplaces, and cozy blankets.  Somehow the cold weather brings me so much warmth and happiness inside.  Fall means layering and more experimenting with style.  I’ve had this ruffled blouse for awhile now and only wear it during the warmer months, but I’ve been dying to find a way to transition it.  I paired it under a floral sweater and wore an updated version of the ‘Canadian Tuxedo’ {which actually happens to be one of my favorite looks — I do really love denim}  However, this trend is actually a lot harder to wear than you may think because it so easily can look like you’re trying to mimic Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake.  The key is properly mixing denim washes and breaking it up with other layers.  Finding your fall style can take practice but just play around with it and you’ll find what goes!

Sometimes I feel really lucky.  I will never count on myself to win a raffle or concert tickets, but with the experiences I’ve had and people I’ve been able to meet, I feel like I’ve won.  This past week I had the wonderful opportunity to intern and shadow Lawren Howell, a contributing editor at Vogue, and Vivian Ho.  We spent countless hours dressing and redressing models, and trying to figure out that perfect runway look for the Vogue CFDA fashion show at Chateau Marmont.  I feel like I’ve learned so much more about the fashion industry in those 5 days — whether it be about styling, the importance of being thorough by double and triple checking, or patience while trying to decode a pair of complicated Valentino gladiator sandals in under one minute.  The fashion industry is fast paced and requires you to be quick on your feet,  but I think that’s what I like most about it — at Vogue there was never a dull moment.

Simple Colors

Somehow, the summer seems like a distant memory. It’s funny how time seems to fly when you’re not paying attention.  School is in full swing, I’m already feeling like I need to catch up on homework, and my early morning effort put into my clothing decisions is at a minimum.  However, minimal and simple outfits can still be kept fashionable when put together correctly.  My brain still feels like it’s in summer mode, so bright and fun colors seemed like the only way to reminisce.  I’ve already started to think and plan for those wonderful three little months next year, when you can do anything, be anything without the constraints of class, essays, and reading holding you back. But I do love school and all the opportunities that go along with it.   I have an exciting new internship that I hope to share with you all soon.  But for now, dress like summer in bright, simple colors before the heat wave is months in the future.

Sophisticated Skinny Jeans

Denim always seems to slip its way into all of my outfits, no matter the occasion.  From classic jeans worn to class or work, to a tote or jacket, denim is here to stay.  Especially for someone younger like myself, who is just starting to enter the workforce, putting together outfits may seem difficult especially when still trying to remain youthful.  However, I have found that a dark wash, streamline pair of skinny jeans paired with a nice blouse, classy shoes, and fresh tresses is the perfect ensemble for a day in the office.  Skinny jeans can make your outfit youthful, trendy, sophisticated, and can so easily be dressed up or down.  They are a must have and absolute closet staple {I recommend a couple pairs in different washes and colors}  When it comes to buying skinny jeans, I always follow a couple rules: cut, color, and individuality.  Make sure your jeans hug you in all the right places — no pinching, squeezing, or muffin tops.  Secondly, have variety in denim color with some being more distressed than others.  Lastly, have fun with it — find jeans that speak to you and your style.  My favorite pair of skinnies are high-rise, dark green, and have a blue tuxedo stripe down the side!

Lovely Finds

Possibly my most favorite runway piece from the Milan runway shows!  Fendi sure knows how to make a stunning spring, summer sandal.  5.  A homemade, gooey cookie straight out of the oven is my treat of choice — it brings back so many childhood memories.  6.  I have always been an animal lover cats, dogs, frogs, everything.  I have to admit, besides the women’s fashion on Pinterest, the animal category is my go-to especially when I need a smile on my face.
