I’ve always been really reluctant to wear chunky sweaters. Maybe because they conjure up memories of being a kid stuck in a big uncomfortable wool sweater and not being able to move or maybe because they always seemed itchy. But with the Bay Area recently being in a state of “extreme cold”, I finally decided to give it a go. Granted, this is not the warmest sweater (yeah, I don’t think having a sweater with lots of holes will do you much good), but layered with a thermal, it’s been keeping me cozy, warm, and open to more chunky sweater possibilities! Stay warm – and cozy!
I love a good holiday party, especially if that means feeling festive and getting dressed up. This year I decided to forego the sequins and gold and go with a simpler black and white look. As I chose the pieces for this outfit, I started to realize that my outfit began to look more and more like an outfit from the ’50s or ’60s – the sheer boxy top, vintage glam jewelry, and especially the back seam tights. You can rarely go wrong with fashion from the ’50s and ’60s and hopefully this outfit will remain as timeless as the pieces are. Happy Holidays and thanks for reading!
When it comes to casual Fridays and “ready for the weekend” outfits, the chambray shirt is one of my go-to pieces. It’s effortless, chic, and as you can tell by many of my posts, it’s quite versatile! And recently, I’ve acquired another essential addition to my wardrobe – Tom’s crochet wedges. Just like their popular basic slip-on, they are equality comfortable and stylish. These are definitely my go-to wedge for summer (or what’s left of it!). Anyhow, have a great weekend and thanks for reading!
Today’s post is brought to you by the color grey. I love grey clothing. Grey makes me feel like I’m in an old sweatshirt, curled up under a soft blanket on a rainy day. This grey hi-low dress has the most casual and simple color, but definitely not a simple cut. With a piece like this, there are so many ways to wear it – belted or loose, boots or heels, leggings or maybe even shorts! And the perfect accessory with a grey dress? How about this amazing grey polyhedron ring by Seedling Design? It’s super mathematical!
Happy Friday! Wearing one of my favorite tanks that just came back in stock – the “I Only Date Super Heroes” tank top! And coincidentally enough, I’m also wearing almost all Forever 21 clothes in this post. I may not be 21 anymore, but their clothes are seriously fun and soo affordable that I’d be surprised if there are any women out there who don’t own something from that store! But buyers be warned – you definitely have to be picky about what you buy there. T-shirts and tanks, definitely. Leggings, definitely. Jackets and pants, depends on the fabric and quality. Shoes? Maybe not. Unlike many stories I hear, I personally have never had anything “fall apart” on me or get “destroyed” in the wash, but then again, I am very picky about what I buy from there, so definitely be careful! That’s why they say, “you get what you pay for”!
The weather has been very fickle in the Bay Area these days with it being sort of hot, but still windy and cold, which makes for much indecisiveness when it comes to choosing an outfit. Layers is one solution, but for today’s post, I decided to mix it up by wearing my winter boots with my summery floral dress. This high low dress is conveniently short enough in the front to just barely cover my over the knee boots and pairing it with a light jacket will help keep you balanced when the temperature changes. On top of that, I’m also wearing my winged key Harry Potter necklace that I picked up from the Whimsical Alley, which in my opinion goes perfectly with floral print. I got to check out their booth at Wondercon and can’t wait to visit the store next time I’m in the LA area! It’s a must see store for any Harry Potter fan!
It was love at first sight when I saw this skirt. Something about the old style comics with their red, yellows, blacks, and bright blues seems to never go out of style. The iconic blue eyes of the blonde haired woman who always seemed to be in a tragic state is such a familiar piece of art, which I believe is based off of Roy Lichtenstein’s art (can anyone confirm?) Regardless, I love that this skirt brings so much life and “pop” into an outfit and it’s definitely a must have for any of you comic-loving ladies out there!
