today’s closetcast: not quite casual






Sometimes all it takes is some shimmer to lift your spirits. This Madewell sequin skirt is one of them. I love sequins on things, but rather than dress them up, I find it’s more fun to incorporate them into everyday casual looks. Here I paired this skirt with a simple white tee, a “tough” army jacket, and ankle boots. Pretty basic right? Great way to start this beautiful January here in lovely Cali! XO

Hope everyone had a wonderful vacation/holiday. Now it’s back to the grind! I like to ease into it, especially with my wardrobe, so I kept it simple today with some comfortable flats and a favorite tee. It’s always nice to introduce variations of those wardrobe staples though, so I did that here with some studded loafers and a striped nautical tee. Add a layered rhinestone necklace and my look doesn’t look like an afterthought.

Here’s to a short (and quick) week back!! Thanks so much for reading!! XOXO

Happy New Year to all of my amazing and supportive readers! All of you make blogging so much fun and I look forward to your comment and likes every single day!

I thought to close out 2012 and to welcome 2013 with open arms, I would do a post of some of my favorite looks from 2012. I’m excited about the year ahead and hope all of you are looking forward to more posts from this “fashionable girl weathering daily style storms”.

Thank you again!! XOXOXO

It’s Not Unusual…

today’s closetcast: funkytown

Sported some funky pants to brighten my mood despite being a bit under the weather. I tend to get sick when the weather changes, but this time it was a doozy!

Have all of you been glued to the television watching the Hurricane Sandy footage? I cannot believe I was there a week ago! My friends out there are all safe, thank goodness. I hope that NYC and the rest of the Eastern seaboard can begin to repair and rehabilitate quickly!

Layered Up

today’s closetcast: doilies and stripes

Had a lovely weekend down in Santa Barbara, seeing old friends and making some new ones. It always goes too fast though, doesn’t it?

Layered up my look today. I’ve mentioned before how it’s a little difficult to get dressed when you live by the coast, but work in the valley – temperature differences can be huge from day to day – especially in the summer months. Either way, I’m sure I’ll be slowly disrobing as the temperature rises on this side of “the hill”.

In the meantime, I’m so close to getting 300+ followers on Facebook. With over 750 followers on WordPress, I know you guys have Facebook accounts! Check out my Facebook page for fun updates throughout the week! XO
