Top: Old Navy/ Tank: Forever 21/ Jeans: Levi's/ Shoes: Nordstrom/ Watch: Michael Kors

I finally jumped on the polka dot trend and picked up this sheer blouse from Old Navy this past weekend. I love the detailing of this top--the smocked neckline and the ruffles down the front are simple yet it still maintains that flair of chic. I can only imagine pairing it with a sequined skirt to add that extra sparkle for a weekend dinner. Happy Friday to all!

iphone love

I am a google Android lover/user myself, but I am contemplating on switching to the iPhone just for these fabulous cases (well, and for the Instagram too). I love personalizing things (#4), and the idea of a chevron pattern with my initials just sounds like a ingenious idea in and of itself.

Sweater: Old Navy/ White Button Down: Forever 21/ Necklace: Forever 21/ Jeans: Levi's/ Shoes: DV Dolce Vita/ Rings: H&M/ Bag: Prada

One of my besties visited me from San Diego and we had the greatest weekend--we explored various neighborhoods and definitely overate, but it was well worth it. On Sunday, we ate at Farmer Brown in the Tenderloin. The bacon, biscuits, fresh yogurt, and the fried chicken were absolutely delicious. I highly recommend it. The atmosphere is definitely more hipster, but I didn't have a problem with my preppy Sunday attire, offset with my tribal-esque geometric necklace that I can't stop wearing.

The Inspiration

The Look 

Chambray Shirt: Levi's/Necklace: Forever 21/Pants: Macy's/Shoes: Elizabeth and James/Watch: Michael Kors

There is no rhyme or reason as to how I pick my outfits in the morning. Sometimes I just put something on and if I look in the mirror and think "Yup, this is it," then it's decided. I generally like to believe if you feel good in what you're wearing, then other people's opinions don't really matter. I don't know why I put this little number together, but I guess I was in a menswear inspired mood. I decided to add my fringe necklace underneath my collar for that extra flair of femininity.

The Ring

YSL arty ring

I have been wanting this ring for over a year and I can't stop searching for it on the internet. I don't know why I'm praying to the "sale" gods, hoping for a price reduction. $250 is pretty steep for a fashion jewelry piece, and I can't bring myself to take the plunge. I was reading my blogs, and found this website called La Dama, and I found the greatest thing ever--a version of the ring. Could it be?! I squealed in delight when I saw the $30 price tag and before I could blink, it happened to make its way into my virtual shopping cart. I remembered my New Year's resolution of saving money and not spending it on "unnecessary" things. I am trying to be good, so we'll see how long this resistance lasts. Happy Weekend!

Coat: Banana Republic/ Dress: Old Navy/ Boots: Nine West/ Necklace: Forever 21

I have been on the hunt for basic tights, and what better place to get them than at Nordstrom? My last pair were so old and ripped, that it was time to invest in another. It's funny how something so basic and simple inspires the way I dress. I've been wearing these boots with skinny jeans, and it was time for me to switch it up. I paired it with my basic black dress, threw on my newly acquired fringe necklace, and added my cobalt blue coat for some extra color.

Coat: Anthropologie/ Top: Forever 21/ Shorts: Levi's/ Tights: Nordstrom/ Booties: Nine West/ Wallet: Kate Spade/ Bracelet: Piperlime/ Watch: Michael Kors/ Necklace: Forever 21

As mentioned in my previous post, I received this amazing coat for Christmas. My favorite part of this coat is the unique collar; you can essentially style it any way you want. I have had these Levi's shorts for a while, and since it hasn't been too terribly cold in the city, I decided to wear it with tights and booties, and voila: shorts in the winter! The side buttons, corset detailing, and speckled fabric appearance on these shorts make it that much more special.

9. Missoni tweed coat, $1,368
10.  TIBI ball gown, $396

I spent my weekend window shopping at Neiman Marcus, and I was in love with the bright splashes of color that was showcased around the store. Even though it's January, our California weather has taken an unexpected turn and it's sunny as can be. Spring is just around the corner, and I am currently craving some chartreuse into my wardrobe; I received a beautiful chartreuse coat for Christmas, and I can't get enough. I love the mix between the yellow and green, and I can't wait to hunt for more bright pieces to spruce up my black and gray palette.

Sorry for the lack of posts, but I wanted to stray away from adding posts until my new blog redesign was complete. For the past month, I have been working with Danielle Moss, whose services I sought out when I was getting a little tired of my amateur blog template. Long gone are the days where I had to google html codes and figure out how to implement miscellaneous add-ons. For your reference, my social media buttons are now on the top right hand side of my blog. There is also a navigation bar right underneath my new banner, where you can find out my daily reads as well as find me in other social media outlets such as pinterest and chictopia. I am so excited for these new changes and hope you enjoy them too!

Boyfriend Attire

Don't you hate it when you have an outfit in mind, and in theory it seems like it would be well put together, but  upon trying it on, it's just a disaster? Well this outfit is the opposite. I know the idea of denim on denim seems like a country-western cliche, but trust me. It's so fashionable. I have discussed the denim on denim trend several times on this blog, but I simply can't get enough of it. I have gotten my boyfriend to slowly convert to Levi's--first with the jeans, then to the Chambray shirt, and recently, I purchased him a denim tie. Very bold, I know. If you're feeling a little too fashion forward in this outfit, you can break it up by wearing a nice lightweight sweater over it, to give it a more dressed up feel, without having it be so "Garth Brooks." For added color, I love the idea of having fun socks, and these Marc by Marc Jacobs ones are just the perfect touch.
