White after Labor Day? Of course!!!!! Both my jacket and pants are from second-hand shops. YSL pants for $35 (probably one of the best purchases I have ever made).
Last week wasn’t the best, yet I’m still completely in love with life. Today is Monday, the start of a new week and hopefully better things.

It’s beginning to look (and feel) a lot like Christmas!!!!! It’s finally cold enough in LA to see my breath whenever I walk outside, Christmas decorations are up, and traffic has gotten worse… all signs that it’s holiday season. As of now I don’t have any real plans for Christmas but I am sure I will be surrounded by people I love. Make sure you guys check back this week.. I have a few holiday gift guides coming up.

Florals again!!!! You guys may or may not know… But I can’t recall a printed suit that I met and didn’t love…this one being no exception. My winter wardrobe will probably consist of more (if not only) prints and suits. I suppose I’m feeling sort of vibrant.

Since it still feels like spring here in this city of angels, so I decided to wear something floral. I made it a little more fall appropriate with a darker lip and a berry colored fedora (which is pretty much my go-to accessory this season). For me spring represents new life..and even though it’s November I feel like my ice is changing and I am growing. I worked REALLY hard last month and bought myself my first pair of REALLY expensive shoes (I feel like such an accomplished woman). I decided on the nude Pigalle because it is such a classic shoe..both in color and shape, and…. they are surprisingly comfortable. I feel like I’m going to live (and maybe die) in these shoes.
More exciting news.. I have decided to host Thanksgiving dinner at my place. This is a first for me, and I feel like it’s a huge leap from almost grown up to full fledge adult.
What new changes are you guys making this fall?

Guess who got tired of her hair and swapped her fro for braids……. yup, me.
Guess who is completely obsessed with mixing prints within the same color scheme? Yup.. me again.
I fell in lust with these pants from Zara as soon as my eyes landed on their perfect print. After trying them on… I instantly fell in love. The fabric is sooooo soft and the slim silhouette makes my legs look very long and lean (which is never a bad thing).
My incredible shoes are from Aldo. They also come in a great blue color…but I opted for the red because I ended up buying cobalt blue boots (which I will share with you guys next week).
It’s been a crazy month. My style is changing (I feel like I say this every week), and so is my life. What are some new things you are adding (or subtracting) from your life and/or your wardrobe?????

It’s FINALLY starting to cool off here in LA (I’m stoked if you couldn’t tell). Wearing denim with denim is one of my foolproof outfits. It doesn’t require much thought or effort. Add a little neck piece and some fancy shoes and you look effortlessly chic.
Yes, I’m still carrying this Phillip Lim Bag. Even though it’s yellow it has been going pretty well with every outfit. Oh..and I got an amazing new red lipstick (like I needed another). It’s by NYX from their soft matte cream line and it’s called “Monte Carlo”. The best part? It was only $5!!!!!!!
What is your foolproof outfit?

Here it is the middle of October and I am still waiting for fall to arrive. Living in LA means that fall probably will not show up until it’s winter everywhere else. Something about wearing a miniskirt with a short sleeve shirt made me feel waaaay too out of season, so I threw on these thigh high boots in an [failed] effort to channel colder weather. The lovely gals at Sucre Couture were great enough to gift me with this dope necklace and bracelet.. both of which as the perfect little bit of funk for every outfit.
Is it fall weather where you are? And if not, how are you incorporating fall trends into warm weather fashion?

Oh, the wonders you find when you actually clean out your closet. Or, in my case… when you clean out a box full of clothes. This jumpsuit was hiding in the bottom of a box filled with great things I had forgotten all about. I scored it a few years ago while trading in clothes at Buffalo Exchange.
I’ve been meaning to post these pics, but life happened… you know how that goes. Soooo expect a few posts tonight/tomorrow. I am sort of short on words, but have many pics to post so stay tuned.

I have a recent obsession.. it’s pairing T-shirts with skirts. I feel like this is the best way to dress down a fancy skirt and to dress up an old tee.. its the perfect match! It’s not quite fall weather here in LA so I’m still bearing legs and arms for now. I am anxiously awaiting fall so I can pull out the layers and the leather.
Over the weekend I was SUPER busy. I had a closet sale, but I plan on posting what didn’t sell on on Instagram so look out for that. I was also invited to speak about fashion and style at a potluck. At the potluck someone referred to me as a “guru”, as flattering as that was.. I don’t think I have earned that title yet. I am still learning and still trying to figure this whole style thing out… but I will say that I am a future guru.
