A Very Casual Friday





I'm actually kind of glad it's been so cloudy (June Gloom early?) around the Bay Area because I can still use my pieces from Fall/Winter/Spring in my outfits lately. Take this parka, for example. Worn extensively during the Winter months. This is how I wore it on a cloudy day with a few rain drops to go flying. (In a helicopter!)

Wear to Work: Leopard Look




I just love love love the combination of red, black, and leopard. It's sophisticated, but it can also be SASSY! Peplum is a go-to style for me as well, and I love pairing peplum with a good quality pencil skirt.

The Hoodie Dress





How unique and comfortable is this outfit? It's a hoodie... but a dress. At first, I thought this was a big NO, but I find myself living in it lately. Not the most fashionable thing I own, but certainly functional. 

This specific one is from Target, and it looks like it is sold out... so I linked a similar one below with SEVERAL different color options!

The Perfect Jacket




So May hasn't been very warm. Like at all. It's been cloudy, drizzly, and temperatures near SF get to about 60 degrees if we're lucky. I've been mixing things in from my Spring wardrobe and winter wardrobe to deal with these breezy days. I kept this look extremely basic with leggings, a white tee, and bomber jacket. My necklace and uniquely studded flats kept the look interesting though!

Caged In





Hmm... not sure if you guys have noticed (I just picked up on it myself), but I've been wearing a lot of black/white/neutrals lately. It's just so effortless. I'm sure once June pops up, I'll probably incorporate some more color, but for now I'm really loving neutral clothing and make-up. My favorite color combo has always been black and cognac so not much has changed here.

These caged heels were a great find at Target! They have that chunky heel (which is perfect for accident prone people like me who fall all. the. time.) Plus, the shoes was a spot-on match to my favorite Tory Burch bag. These will get a lot of wear this summer, for sure.

Stripes Again




Hey everyone! I've been so busy lately with a crazy schedule, that most of the time I'm heading out the door with wet hair. Good thing it was pretty warm on this particular day so my hair dried pretty fast. I need to Pinterest some cute hair styles to try while your hair is wet because I've officially stopped blow drying my hair. It's just so damaging. If anyone has any recommendations... let me know!

I'm not sure if I've talked extensively about these Barcelona camis yet on the blog. I wear them in many of my posts and in different colors! They're from Express, and the best part is- they're reversible! 2 shirts in 1. Perfect if you're packing for a weekend trip and don't want to bring multiple tops in your carry-on.

Wear to Work: Color Blocking





How perfect is this!? I walked by some flowers that matched my outfit, so it turned out to be a sensational photo-op for the blog. I usually shy away from too much bright color mixing. However, since the pieces are pretty basic, I think this outfit worked well. It was windy this day, so excuse my hair being all over my face. 

I wanted to ask... how many of you use Ebates? If you don't, it's a pretty cool. It's kinda like a commission site. All you do is log in (free), and from there go to your favorite websites to shop. You can get up to 7% cash back just for logging in through Ebates before you do the shopping you were going to do anyway! Pretty nifty.

Draped




If I could re-name my blog, it would be called "This Is What I Wore to Chevy's Pt. 
1,2,3,4"....etc. Literally. As I sit here and upload/edit my pics, I realized these are all snaps I take on my way to Chevy's. Ha. Anyway, it was a beautiful day so I got to eat outside. Nothing like chips and salsa under the sun and with a view! This is a great laidback summer outfit. In fact, even though it's pretty basic, this is something I could potentially wear to Outsidelands or another music festival.

A Slice of Paradise





So I'd like to make a public service announcement regarding these Express camis. These 'Barcelona' camis are all REVERSIBLE... mostly one side is printed and the other is a solid color. These are perfect for vacation since you essentially get two tops in one. This one has cute little colored palm trees, and the other side is solid navy. Others are striped, have a paisley design, or polka dots. Be sure to invest in these...and Express is always having sales and these can come as cheap as $20 a pop!

Perfect Pink Sweater





One of my favorite stores is Nordstrom Rack. You can find quality, designer looks for just a fraction of the retail price. While browsing one afternoon, I came across these v-neck sweaters in a variety of colors.! I find myself grabbing one of them atleast once a week. Just tuck them into your jeans and go!

Jean Queen




Hey all! This blue on blue look is inspired by J. Lo! I've seen quite a few pictures of her wearing denim on denim. I did a few denim on denim looks over the Fall and Winter, but this particular outfit was given a summer update. Speaking of J. Lo, from time to time I use her L'Oreal Colour Riche Nude lipstick which can be found here. It's a lovely pinky nude that looks great on caramel/tan skin, and usually it's under $7!

Orange Sherbert




With baseball season in full swing, you'll probably see a lot of folks here in the Bay Area wearing their orange and black. This top (found on sale at Target...WHAT!) is a very vibrant neon orange. It's kinda like a sherbert color.  Ripped jeans and some gold sandals that perfectly matched all of my accessories rounded out the look.

Off The Shoulder

 




Hi there! Taking a moment to share an outfit with you all that I wore out and about in Walnut Creek. The weather is ALWAYS lovely there, and the people are well dressed! Since it was sunny and fairly warm, I saw a lot of people rocking their summer whites and touches of neutral. I'm always on the hunt for new restaurants in the Creek.. please leave your suggestions in the comments!

P.S.: This new lipstick is MAC Impassioned. It's a very bright watermelon pink. I also found a cheaper dupe in Revlon Matte Colorburst Balm in Unapologetic if this isn't a color you'll find yourself rocking too often. Try it!

Wear To Work: Camel Colors





I have really been drawn to neutrals lately. This is a nice, airy, silky top. It's my current favorite color, and I get to wear my favorite heels. I actually have this top in many colors, because I love it so much!
