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

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?

Really feeling a black and white palette this morning. Don’t you just love how crisp and clean it looks? Even on a pair of sneakers, there is a certain formality to it that creates such a polished look. I am naturally drawn to these colors in silks, leathers, and mixed like that beautiful Haider Ackermann coat and those Veronika Maine pants. What do you guys think of this palette?

1. Topshop leather top; 2. Veronika Maine Dandelion pants; 3. Stephen Webster necklace; 4. Mango drop waist dress; 5. Haider Ackermann wool blend coat; 6. Saint Laurent two-tone penny loafers; 7. Givenchy Antigona bag; 8. Ganni Lavish blouse via Need Supply; 9. Nike Thea sneakers

Shoemint recently did a collaboration with blogger Jane Aldridge of Sea of Shoes and these awesome booties were the result! I swooped up on them quick – they sold out in a flash! They are a great addition to the shoes I have on constant rotation and I’m excited to incorporate them into some fall-winter looks!

The jeans are ages old, I bought them in Japan at La Foret, a 8 story one-stop shop for all Japanese brands! It’s a sort of amazing place where you can wander aimlessly and find something great at every turn.

What do you guys think of this look?
