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...
Doing Plaid in NYC

Doing Plaid in NYC

Whew!  It’s been a hot second since I’ve posted!  Never fear my friends, I am back and better than ever!  After a big move (big meaning big pain in the butt, not big as in far), and traveling clear over to NYC to attend Fashion Week, I was pooped to say the least!  If I’m being honest with you, I’m still pooped.  Who knew Fashion Week would be SO exhausting?  Especially right after the most draining move I have ever made! Alright I know, poor me.  I’m done. I’m done!  New York really was so much fun and I met some awesome people, including the lovely Karina that just so happened to take these pictures.  (Love you Karina!!!!)  You will hear more about the others I met later this week, but for now here’s one of my favorite outfits from NYFW.  Easy breezy, just the way I like it!  I wonder if you went back through all of my posts how many times I have said that… But it’s true!  I like my outfits to be no fuss and this one fits the bill EXACTLY.   A dress to slip over your head? Check.  A vest to throw on over dress to make it look like you care? Check.  Comfy slides? Check.  Cutest little bag for the essentials? Check!  This outfit wins, therefore I win.  Thanks BNKR and Uber for giving me such an easy outfit and equally as easy way of getting around the Big Apple!  Vest: The Fifth via BNKR // Dress: The Fifth via BNKR // Bag: Hare + Hart // Shoes: Matt Bernson // Sunglasses: Poppy...

Structures.

We had our five minutes of winter here in Los Angeles, and I must say, it was nice.  I like sweaters every once in a while, but sweater weather is about as cold as I can stand which is why I live where I live!  Now it’s back into the 70s, which is just the way I like it.  For the rest of the country, here’s a little chilly weather outfit inspiration! Big sweaters over dresses with different shapes or textures are definitely a cold weather staple for me.  This Echo + Air dress was more than perfect for this because the skirt on it has such an eye grabbing shape.  This combo is perfect for Southern California dwelling me for when the sun decides to come out and I need to take the sweater off.  Versatility is key here people! Plus, wearing a dress under adds a layer underneath if you need to safeguard your skin from the itchiness of your sweater. Doesn’t it seem all the best ones itch?  Yes, they do, but you must do it anyway! To dress up the look a bit, I added in the structured Mox by Vere Verto (which you saw in Let Me Count the Ways as a hip pack), and these very structured oxfords.  I love adding in contrasting accessories to take the outfit to a different level, here it’s the draping of the dress and the oversize fit of the sweater against the clean cut lines of the bag and shoes.  Do you notice this kind of thing in your outfits too?  Am I maybe just crazy?  Hmmm….. Either...
