Really into the cropped top trend that has been so popular as of late. Though I’ll probably never have the guts to rock one without a top underneath, I still love the look as layered like I wore here. This leather top is vintage and has been sitting in my closet for quite a while. The pants and heels are from Madewell – and I have to say I have not been able to stop perusing that site! There are so many items that I love, specifically the Camo Jacket and all the t-shirts from the brand Rxmance – a company I have loved for YEARS. What do you guys think of this look?

XO!

Finally an outfit post! I know I’ve been out of the loop for a week or so, but I’m back! Shot these shots this morning on my way out the door. I have been obsessed with neoprene material in clothing for a couple years now. I just love how structured and crisp the fabric looks. Picked this top up at asos a few months ago and I just love the bright white color and oversized, boxy fit. These Tabitha Simmons heels were a bargain find at Barneys. Purchased for a fraction of the full price, I felt like these were definitely meant to be. Don’t you just love when that happens!?

XO…

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

Decided on a skirt while stupidly listening to the weather report! A warm winter day was actually a cold one! I was definitely feeling a chill by the end of the day.

This GORGEOUS navy leather bag from Clare Vivier was a gift from my hubby for Christmas. It’s so luxurious and will definitely get a lot of use in the coming months. I am so into the navy color of the leather. It’s such a welcome change-up from black leather, but it’s just as much of a “neutral” to go with practically anything and everything. What do you guys think of the bag?

some beading and some brooding…

The title of this post says it all doesn’t it? I swear I am a happy person, it’s just with these blog photos I feel like I am not one who has mastered the effortless, unposed smile and when I attempt it – it looks rather contrived. I instead come across as brooding… hopefully my shyness in front of the camera will change as I continue with this blog.

Now… on to the outfit! This look is mostly made up of pieces I’ve had in my closet and rediscovered. I’ve actually never worn this top before, though I’ve had it for months. I got it from asos, a true gem of a shopping destination. I swear I could spend hours perusing their selections of European brands and their own unique label. Trouble! But the top is this heavy-duty wool jumper with this crazy beading detail. The jeans are Mother and are so amazing in their fit, I haven’t taken them off since I bought them a couple of weeks ago!

What do you guys think of this look?
