Plaid, Leather & Bows

Sweater: J Crew, Shirt: ASOS (similar here), Skirt: Trendy Blendy c/o,  Earrings: H&M, Bracelet: Gifted, Watch: Michael Kors via Nordstrom, Ring: Gifted, Shoes: Prada, Bag: Prada
For today's look I layered a plaid button down top under a jeweled neck sweater. I love how the feminine neckline was juxtaposed by the edginess of the leather skirt. I finished off the look with sparkly silver accessories, bow pumps, and a black tote. These bow pumps were a Christmas present and I was so excited (for Santa) to score them at a deep, deep discount! I just love a good bargain! 

I hope you had a great weekend!

To The Max

For today's look I layered an leather jacket over a black and white printed maxi. Maxi skirts and dresses are a favorite of mine because they are comfortable and they can be easily be dressed up with high heels and a clutch for a night on the town or dressed down with flip flops and a beach tote for a leisurely day of strolling. I decided to go for a casual-glam look pairing my patent leather pumps with a cobalt blue tote and a chic statement necklace. We are so lucky to be experiencing the most beautiful weather here in LA, it certainly doesn't feel like the end of December!

I hope you have lovely day! Thank you for stopping by!

Full Skirted Tulle

Sweater: Liz Claiborne (vintage), Skirt: Space 46 Boutique c/o, Earrings: Via Image Boutique, Bracelet: Ann Taylor, Clutch: Charlotte Russe c/o, Cell Phone Case: Cellairis c/o, Shoes: Manolo Blahnik

Happy Monday everyone!
 I must admit, I have been excited to feature this dreamy Space 46 Boutique skirt from the day that I received it. The full skirt, layers of tulle, and midi length make it an instant favorite in my closet. Truth be told, I think my other skirts are jealous. I put a casual spin on things by pairing this pretty little number with an embellished sweater, statement earrings, a striped clutch, and lime green pumps for a pop of color. Also, I know it sounds crazy, but a pretty cell phone case is an absolute must! As much time as we spend on these devices we might as well make them a part of our outfit. Since it's the holiday season I decided to incorporate a sparkly silver Cellairis case into my look. 

Be sure to check back on Wednesday (yes, Christmas!) to see how I dress this skirt up for the perfect party look!

Golden Foliage

Coat: Charlotte Russe c/o (similar in charcoal here), Shirt: Old Navy (similar here), Sweater: J Crew Factory, Jeans: Forever 21, Bag: Charlotte Russe, Earrings: H&M, Necklace: Mark Girl c/o, Watch: La Mer Collections c/o, Shoes: Charlotte Russe c/o

I've learned over the years that I'm not the most practical dresser. I typically wear super high heels and crazy full skirts but sometimes, on extremely rare occasions, I dress down. Today, was one of those days. I layered a plaid button down under a sweater and topped it off with a crisp white coat, simple gold accessories, and a cobalt blue bag. Instead of reaching for my go-to pointed toe pumps I went with comfy ankle boots. It's nice to dress down, but I definitely won't be making it a habit.

I hope you've enjoyed a wonderful weekend!

Dressed Up Leather

Jacket: Alexander McQueen via Intermix (similar here), Dress: Tibi (old) similar here, Necklace: Charlotte Russe c/o (also loving this option), Earrings: H&M, Bracelets: Sole Society & Gifted, Bag: Gucci, Sunglasses: D&G via Smart Buy Glasses c/o, Shoes: Steve Madden c/o similar here

Happy Friday everyone!
Just a quick post today wearing a simple look complete with my new leather jacket that I picked up for a total steal at Intermix. Remind me never to go into a store like that when they're having a major sale. I paired it with a simple shift dress, a silver spiked necklace and strappy pumps.

I hope you have a great weekend!

Fall Minimalism

Faux Fur Vest: Apt. 9 (thrifted), Shirt: Baukjen c/o, Skirt: Forever 21 (old) similar here, Necklace: Mark Girl "Power of Change" Necklace c/o, Earrings: H&M, Watch: Anne Klein, Hat: Downtown Style c/o, Rings: Cache & Gifted, Shoes: Charlotte Russe (also loving this pair) c/o, Bag: Prada

A few weeks ago I spent the day strolling Manhattan Beach with one of my blogger friends Melanee. We shot each others outfit pictures and somehow this one slipped through the cracks. As much as I love prints and patterns, some days call for more of a minimalistic approach. For this look, I kept things simple pairing a plain white button down shirt (that I've been wearing on repeat) with a faux fur vest, a leather mini, and strappy sandals. I love playing with different textures and leather and fur are definitely two of my favorites.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

A Touch of Tweed

Jacket: J crew, Dress: Ann Taylor, Shirt: Baukjen c/o, Sunglasses: Heavenly Couture Boutique, Watch: La Mer Collections c/o Bollare PR, Rings: Cache & Gifted, Bracelet: Ann Taylor (also loving this option), Bag: TJ Maxx, Shoes: Love Culture (similar here)

A little yellow dress and a touch of tweed for today's look. I  layered a white button down shirt under my shift dress to put more of a fall spin on it. I then topped it off with a blue tweed jacket, a studded clutch, and sparkly accessories. I decided to take a break from my fall color palette today to play with spring colors. A girl can dream.
