I’m Plaid About You

I'm Plaid About YouHello loves! Sorry I haven’t posted anything in so long. I started a new job and my husband and I are in the process of moving into a new home.  A lot of exciting changes going on, but that’s still no excuse for not posting!  So here is a new post – finally!  My favorite season is Autumn. Growing up in Ohio I still long for the chill in the air and the changing of the leaves.  Here in Los Angeles we do cool down enough to break out the sweaters and boots, and I can head up to NorCal for a more “fall like” experience so I don’t feel like I’m missing out too much. Now, when I lived in Florida I always felt like I was missing out on the seasons! California is perfect for me. I feel I can get the best of everything here.

I bought this plaid shirt and coated- wash skinny jeans from Old Navy.  I thought pairing a plaid shirt with an edgier pair of jeans would amp up the fun factor.  And adding these stunning Simply Vera heels pulled the whole look together.  I love mixing patterns, styles and textures. Fashion is all about having fun. I hope my outfit inspires you to try different prints and textures.  It’s always fun to play dress up and see what you come up with!

Outfit: Jeans – Old Navy; Shirt – Old Navy; Heels – Kohls; Sunnies: So brand (old); Cross Body Bag – Nine West (old);  Lipstick – Maybelline Super Stay 24 color “Keep it Red

Tough Love

IMG_2484Hi, my loves!  Hope everyone had a great weekend and an amazing Cinco de Mayo!  I, for one, will find any excuse to eat Mexican food. What, you say it’s your birthday? – let’s have Mexican food! What, you got a parking ticket? – let’s have Mexican food!  You see, it’s that easy for me to turn any situation into an excuse for Mexican food. Wait… how did this post turn into talking about food? Ummm…. because I likey food… a lot. HA!  Well, I will have a recipe on my page later this week for shrimp tacos, so check that out. Now, on to the real reason for this post… My amazing outfit!

I really love love love this look!  You probably noticed from my previous posts, I am very much a girly girl. Polka dots, pink, pearls, ect. I’m oozing girliness, but every girl has that tough side and we like to show it off once in awhile. And while this outfit has more of an edge, it still showcases the fact that I am very much a woman – a sexy and confident woman. I will rock what I want, how I want. Snakeskin print heels and a jean jacket? – Sure, why not. Wear a studded bracelet on one arm and bangles on another? – Why yes, I think I will.  Fashion is all about taking chances and risks. Some pay off and some don’t. Bottom line here – If you felt amazing wearing it then that’s all that matters. And I had fun wearing this outfit!
