Today’s look takes me back to my visit to Japan in winter 2010. Shopping there was insanely crowded and I quickly noticed that girls there easily sacrificed warmth in the name of fashion. Even though I wore layers upon layers under my extremely puffy down North Face jacket, I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw girls wearing floral mini skirts, tights, some faux leather boots, and fur hooded parkas, all in 30-40 degree weather. Even though I loved the look, I knew I would never be able to pull it off until I came back to good old “60 degree winter” in the Bay Area. I think I will always be inspired by Japanese fashion, but only if I get to stay warm!
Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! Time for food, family, and fun! Growing up, I was always taught to dress a little nicer for family get togethers, which meant lots of holiday sweaters and dresses. This idea can definitely get a little mundane so why not forgo your typical Thanksgiving outfit for some lace and velvet? Velvet has always reminded me of the holiday season and I am loving these edgy velvet skinny pants. These pants may not give you the stretch you need for Thanksgiving dinner, but hopefully an extra long top will take care of that. ;) Happy Turkey Day!
I’ve been in a pretty casual wearing mood lately, which might have to do with the cold weather or being sick for two weeks. Either way, oversized sweaters seem to be my go-to piece these days. Paired with skinny jeans, a skirt, or even leggings, these “boyfriend” sweaters make a great comfortable and loose piece that you can throw on over virtually anything. Let’s just hope this “boyfriend” is a good one!
It may already be mid-November and on the verge of winter, but living in California, it’s just starting to feel like fall. And there’s nothing like a good sweater to kick off the drop in temperature. I’ve never been a fan of thick chunky sweaters and love that this one has a so cal surfer look and can be worn year round. This one may be a bit to “holey” to keep you truly warm in most places during the winter, but it will definitely do in California.
Sweatshirts to me have always been something super casual, something you wear when you’re at home, sick, or rushing to class. But these days, it’s so much more than that. Colored, patterned, or dressed up with a statement necklace, it can be a fun and versatile piece. This lace sweatshirt definitely brings new meaning to “casual Fridays”! Happy Friday,everyone!
The week leading up to Halloween is always a fun one – people start getting their decorations out, the pumpkin carvings start appearing in my feeds, and weekend Halloween parties pop up left and right. But for me, Halloween seemed to have lasted all month this year with my big pumpkin project, face painting at my church’s Halloween festival, and dressing up this past weekend as Wednesday Addams. I’m super excited for Halloween and even if you’re not one to dress up, maybe today’s outfit will get you in the spirit. It’s hard to be chic in orange and black, but maybe this outfit inspire some ideas. Happy Halloween everyone!
There’s nothing like a cute floral skirt to brighten up a gloomy day. The past couple days has been super foggy, cold, and well, a lot like fall weather I guess. Even though there has been an extreme lack of sun, wearing this fun floral printed skirt took my mind off of that. I especially like this one because it has a layer underneath that adds a little “poof” – a petticoat if you will. Plus the florals on black gives it a little bit of edge so that you can throw on your favorite pair of black boots.
