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

My Sunday Style

IMG_1798Hello, darlings! Hope you are having a beautiful Sunday.  Just a quick post on today’s outfit.  I always reach for something yellow when I want to feel extra cheerful and sunshiny.  Yellow is a happy color. I paired a yellow polka dot cardigan with denim polka dot skinnies.  Usually you don’t want to wear the same pattern from head to toe, but this combo actually works well together! I added a vintage locket (with a modern spin), pearl stud earrings, and of course, my staple piece – my vintage bulova watch. I wore my blue canvas shoes (since I was going to be walking a lot) and not only are they super comfy, but they are super cute!  To complete my vintage style I wore an oversized pair of sunnies.

My Sunday style – Cardigan: Forever 21 (on clearance); white cami: Target (you can get it here); skinnies: Forever 21 (you can get it here); canvas shoes: Target (you can get it here); Locket: Out of the Blue (you can check out her jewelry here). watch: vintage bulova; pearl earrings: Kohl’s (old); sunnies: Big Lots (Seriously! You can get them here.  Cheap, but cute).
