Transition Time

  






Looking back at these pictures, I think my lips look better with a bit of color on them. Even though I am on an undying quest for the perfect nude lip, a MLBB or plum lip look great on me. I look alive! In these photos, I'm wear the Anastasia Beverly Hills Lipgloss in Craft. It is essentially a stain and stayed on my lips through this shoot, lunch, and work! A bit pricey, but worth it for its longevity. I'm also rocking this $4 dress (say what?) and my favorite throwback bomber jacket. This is a quintessential San Francisco look. Clean and classy but not TOO try hard :)

The Lust List: Fall Staples

Fall Fash

The older I get, the more I enjoy Fall. I think October is becoming one of my favorite months. The weather finally starts to cool off here in the Bay Area... and that means vests and boots! I am excited to re-use a lot of great pieces I've accumulated over the years. A green military jacket, fringe booties, and chambray will be on repeat this season.

Chambray + Scallops





Good morning! I am trying to wear this scalloped mini skirt as much as possible before Labor Day. In fact, how perfect would the black version be to transition into Fall? This is a great transitional look with the chambray shirt and camel color accessories paired with a crisp white summer skirt. 

 Sorry if I am a bit squinty in these pics, I just had LASIK eye surgery and my eyes have been extra sensitive to the sun. It turned out pretty well! Procedure was about 5 minutes, and vision was clear as I walked out! If any of you have any questions, let me know! I am SO squeamish when it comes to my eyes, I didn't think I'd be able to handle it. But here I am! So feel free to e-mail or comment below.

Wear to Work: Blue Faux Wrap Dress




I will admit, this was not at the top of my list of favorite purchases from the #NSale last month, but hey, it's functional. I just feel like this look has been done before. Regardless, pairing it with my favorite accessories helped me rock it. I am in love with this Kate Spade Beau Bag- an oldie, but a goodie nonetheless! Also can't get over how comfortable and chic my heels are. The perfect height too, for when you just want a little bit of arch!

Neutrals Never Looked This Good





I can't get enough black and white! As we all know, the colors go with EVERYTHING, and in this case, there's nothing boring about the color combo! You don't need to necessarily mix crazy patterns and colors together to make a fashion statement. This structured blazer was love at first sight, and even though it's great for the office, I've worn it with a tank and cut-offs. This look is great for work and beyond! One of my favorite looks that I've styled recently, for sure.

Blue Hues








This top was super interesting to style. It was an online purchase, so I had no idea it had the ruffle detailing at the bottom hemline. It certainly makes it unique. It was too pretty to tuck in, so I've worn it with cigarette pants or a pencil skirt so it can get all the attention it deserves. I've been wearing a lot of blue lately (mainly cobalt), so this blouse was certainly welcomed into my closet. And how great are these leopard pumps? Definitely the best buy from the #NSale back in July. They are comfy, and as far as I'm concerned...leopard print is a neutral!

White + Blush









Hi there! For this outfit, I wanted an all-white dress to wear for those really humid days we've been having. Blush accessories round out the look and gold detailing. Honestly, I kept commenting how this dress looked like I was getting baptized but it was super comfortable and the fabric felt great in 85 degree heat. Comfort above all, am I right?

Maroon 5







Sometimes, it's really difficult to find the perfect tank. I have high standards when it comes to fit, material, price, and versatility. I picked up this tank in the maroon color (and another in black!) from Forever 21. It's perfect! Can't wait to transition it into Fall with cardigans and boots. Right now, it's doing it's job though beating the heat. I also loved the detailing on these navy shorts. The flowers are just too cute, am I right? Great outfit to throw on for a smoothie run!

Summertime Sadness





I've been wearing a lot of black lately- which isn't the most summer appropriate color. I think that could have something to do with these sandals I picked up. I swear I wear them daily! I bought this top from Forever 21, and unfortunately, it wrinkles easily. That's probably my biggest pet peeve when shopping for new clothes. NO WRINKLES! Also, the off-the-shoulder straps have trouble staying put. These jeans, however, seriously feel like pajamas. They are a blend between skinny jeans and boyfriends jeans- so they fit well but aren't too restrictive. The shoes, again, are new staples for me.
