Easy Like Sunday Morning.

Easy Like Sunday Morning.

How do you like my hair?  Show stealer huh?  Just kidding, it’s a bowl cut!  You know, the haircut from the past that is definitely back to haunt us?  Just kidding (again), I sleep just fine and I’m sure you do too.  Unless you have a traumatic bowl cut experience lingering from your childhood… If that’s the case I am sorry I have hit on such a touchy subject.  If not, you should really consider getting one yourself because it’s easy like Sunday morning in a hair cut. Any way… Little black leather skirts are a wardrobe staple in my book.  Probably in everyone’s book really, because aside from a good pair of jeans, it’s one of the most versatile pieces you can own.  Throw it on with a tee shirt and a good pair of boots to dress it down, or some heels and a dainty blouse, or do it my way!  I’m all about the comfortable shoe and a good vintage button up!   I like that the top is neutral with splashes of oranges, reds, and yellows.  It was a perfect match with a basic like a leather skirt.  I pulled the red from the top through to the bottom with the dark burgundy sneakers.  I thought a black bag would be a little too predictable, so I went for a tan clutch.  Et voilá!  The perfect black leather mini skirt outfit was born!   Top: Vintage // Skirt: BB Dakota // Socks: Hue // Shoes: Matt Bernson // Bag: Marie Turnor Photography by Sarah Fernandez...
IT’S A ROBOT.

IT’S A ROBOT.

I’m really, REALLY, into knee high socks right now.  I have no idea what spurred the whole thing… possibly that it’s one of the only aspects of fall that I can actually bring into my wardrobe when it’s 85+ degrees outside.  (Are you sick of me complaining about the heat?  Cause I’m sick of it.)  Either way, I’m into the socks.   Ankle boots are a great accompaniment to such socks and then of course, the real winner here, a short little shift dress from House of Cannon. But, my friends, not just any little shift dress.  ONE WITH A ROBOT.  Yes, a robot!  In case you missed it in the pictures above, it’s a robot.  A pink one even, and I’m pretty sure nothing goes better with boots and knee highs than a shift dress with a bright pink robot on it. Honestly, nothing goes better with anything than a bright pink robot.  How many times have I said robot in this paragraph?  If you don’t get it by now, there is no hope for you.   Now that we have that cleared up, I still needed a bag.  I really liked the idea of pulling more fall into the look, while also adding a bit more interest, so I chose a bag with autumnal hues and a woven pattern.  I like this bag as a day-to-day kinda bag, but it would also be perfect as a carry on!  Multifunctional pieces are where it’s at people!   Then, to balance the whole thing out, as there was a lot of dark towards the lower half of my body,...
It’s Fall-ish! Pt. 2

It’s Fall-ish! Pt. 2

Because one day of cookies isn’t enough.   This outfit from Alli K has single handedly made me want to move to a colder climate.  Ha!  Totally kidding.  Seriously, I’m kidding.  I love me some LA sun!  This set will be perfect for LA once the “winter” hits, you know, when it gets down in the 60s & 70s.  This outfit had me from the start, in all of it’s squiggly goodness.  Plus, I am a sucker for matching sets, and even more of a sucker for matching sets that are comfortable.  This one fits the bill and as soon as the weather got down below 80 (for the short 24 hours that it did), I threw it on faster than you can say squash bottom!  I have no idea why squash bottom, it’s just the first thing that came to my mind… Anyway, it was the perfect outfit for the day paired with my trusty Hare + Hart bucket bag.  I also have it in tan and mint, seen here & here & also 1 million other places, and they have become my go-to bags for running around.  They fit everything!  And I always get so many compliments on them, and who doesn’t like that?!?   Now, go ahead, soak in the awesomeness that is me eating a Pumpkin Pie Cookie with Toasted Marshmallow Ice Cream sandwich in a killer matching set, all the while toting around my bag.  YOU ARE WELCOME.

It’s Fall-ish! Pt. 1

Let me tell you a little story about how this post was going to be about my outfit, and this Pumpkin Pie Cookie sandwich with Toasted Marshmallow ice cream was going to be a prop… But then there ended up being way too many cute pictures of Milk Jar Cookies AND of the outfit that I had to split it into two posts!  Pretty good story right?  Too many cute pictures are never a bad thing if you ask me, and neither are too many cookies! If there is such a thing… Well my friends, let’s get down to business here, shall we?  It’s fall pretty much everywhere.  Everywhere, that is, except good ol’ Southern California.  We’re still in the 80-90 degree range over here, making getting into the fall spirit somewhat of a challenge.  What is fall without a good cozy sweater?  A slight chill in the air?  Or how about a little pumpkin flavored goodness?  No, I’m not talking about your average, everyday, run-of-the-mill pumpkin spice latte here,  I’m talkin’ about the good stuff!  Like pumpkin bread!  Or pumpkin pie! (Maybe not for another month, but still.) OR PUMPKIN COOKIES!   Despite the lingering heat, Milk Jar Cookies has found a way to bring the fall to us in a more Southern California appropriate way, through an ice cream sandwich of course!  Toasted Marshmallow ice cream sandwiched between two freshly baked Pumpkin Pie cookies? Uhmmmm… Yum!  And quite pleasant to eat in the heat.  Not bad Milk Jar Cookies, NOT BAD.   Of course, to really get into the spirit of things I had to throw on an...
The sweetest things.

The sweetest things.

An embroidered denim dress with a honey bear?  Duh, I had to have it.  It’s a honey bear!  Plus some cupcakes, cookies, tiny teddy grahams…  Come on!  You’ve never seen a sweeter dress and you know it!  All of this toothache inducing goodness via Eat.Me.Do.  Could the brand name be any better?  I think not!  And to top the dress off, there are tiny little ants marching around it.  I know, you almost cried a little it’s so perfect. So, how do you do a delicious dress like this right?  You pair it with a little glitter on your shoes and one crisp, clean, Valas Los Angeles bag.  I know that you know that I love Valas, (see here, here and this really fun one here,  just to name a few), because what’s not to love?  Buttery leathers, perfect shoes, touches of gold!  But this bag… So far it takes the cake!  Craving sweets yet? I’m not normally a white purse kind of girl, but I have been lusting after this one for quite some time.  Why?  The structure of it!  It’s a little larger than most round cross body bags and the stitching on the V just gets me.  I’m learning in my old age (yes, I’m getting old & my birthday is this month and I am only getting older), that I have a thing for perfectly stitched leather.  This is something that Valas gets right every single time whether on their shoes or on their bags.  Things like this let you know a brand is paying attention.  Nothing but the best I tell ya! Now, can someone...
