My Intentions For 2016 & This School Girl Look

school 5

Throw on a mini skirt and a pair of high boots because… we’ve just completed the first full work week of 2016! I never did a post on my resolutions for this year for several reasons. First, I don’t like to call them resolutions – instead, I prefer to call them intentions. Resolutions implies that you and I have problems we need to fix. Whereas, intentions set a vibe for the year.

Last year – the intentions I set were personal growth and travel. I can honestly say that last year, I fulfilled my intentions more than I could have even imagined. I went to San Francisco several times along with New York and Palm Springs. I visited New Orleans for the first time, which was a real treat for me. I had the chance to explore Santorini, Mykonos, and Athens, Greece; Istanbul and Kusadasi, Turkey; the Amalfi Coast in Italy (Positano, Sorrento, Pompeii;) and Rome and Tuscany, Italy.  read more

Winter Pastels

WORK 2

Why not wear pastels in the winter? At least that’s my motto this season. I usually go for black when it comes to the holidays, but recently I’ve been having a bit more fun with fashion and with dressing, in general.  I have been challenging myself to think of more creative ways to wear my closet, and I’m loving the pay off. This is a great outfit for inspiration if you are heading straight from work to a holiday party.

I found this red leather pencil skirt at the Melrose Flea Market years ago, and believe it or not I’ve never worn it until now. I styled it with this festive blue, printed pussy bow blouse – an absolute favorite style of mine! The print on the blouse is super cute and reminds me of Christmas light strands, making it perfect for a holiday cocktail party. I love a sneaky, cheeky nod to the season 🙂 read more

Purse Poms

GRAY 1

OK, let’s talk about purse pom poms. When I first saw this trend with the Fendi bag poms, I thought it was so silly. I also thought, there is no way I would get behind adding on a furry keychain to my purse. Well, per the usual, I thought wrong. Look at me now, just a few months later and I, too, am sporting a furry bag pom pom. And quite frankly, I love it. For some reason it makes me feel like my outfit is more complete. I decided to go with a fuzzy burgundy guy, and I think it looks great with this little Alexander Wang bag. I also like wearing it with my larger Proenza bag too! read more

Metallic Stripes + Colorful Fur

STRIPES 2

I couldn’t help but feel cool in this outfit. There’s just something about a touch of (faux) fur that makes you feel like a badass. I’ve never been a bohemian dresser, but I do adore the ’70s and everything that decade has to offer for inspiration. For this look, I was channeling one of my favorites, Jane Birkin.

I have been wanting to try out metallic knits — I’ve seen them all over the place and I was eager to try and style one myself. I went with an overall ’70s vibe, so I decided to tuck my metallic stripe turtleneck into high waisted jeans. The rich colors in the top paired perfectly with my luxe purple fur vest, but it was too cold to wear the vest alone, so I layered a blazer on top. This is one of my go-to styling tricks! read more

LEVI 3

Why is everything better when it has your initials on it? I have towels… laptop cases… and now, a denim jacket! I first spotted a monogrammed Levi’s jacket on my co-worker, Meg Cuna, and she was kind enough to hook me up with her friend at Levi’s so I could get my own! I haven’t taken this baby off since — I absolutely love it. 

Here I went a little less expected, and used the jacket to dress down a fancier look. I started off with a gray turtleneck and tucked it into a high waisted, black pencil skirt with an insanely cool fringe hem. Something about a fringe skirt always gets me excited, and I’ve found myself reaching for them more and more often. Since I was at work and needed to be comfortable, I went with low rise ankle booties and my Levi’s topper; but, for the party after work, I switched out my boots for a sexier high heel. Like what you see? You can shop my (almost) exact outfit below. read more
