Fall Fashion: Cardi Cool

The Champagne Blonde does Cardi Cool in free people, jbrand, and forever 21

Feels like Fall and I couldn’t be happier. (I love fall fashion!) Today I had a million errands to run.  I’m heading to South America next week for a month and needed to get my affairs in order! Yikes, being a business owner and trying to go on vacation for a weekend is hard enough let alone leaving for a month! Ayayai!! Being the OCD person that I am, I had back to back meetings and silly annoying things I needed to get done before I left.  I grabbed my favorite oversized Free People card and this cute forever21 fedora and headed out.  San Diego fall probably feels like summer to most but today had a little bit of a breeze and I thought a fitted tank, my J brand photo ready jeans and this cardigan were the perfect fit for my day.

I love adding a pop of color in an all black outfit.  It adds a bit of pizzaz.  Instead of warm boots I wore my Zara lace up pumps.  They are a comfortable shoe for popping from place to place. I needed a bag where everything from my cell phone to credit cards were easily accessible.  The bigger the bag I carry the more of a black hole it becomes! To top off this look I grabbed my hamsa bracelets and headed out.

OBSESSED: Lanvin Script Jewelry

I’ve been so OBSESSED with Lanvin script “love”, “happy” and “cool” jewelry for fall/winter 2013. So when I found “Happy” and “Love” Necklace look-a-likes when I was in NYC for Fashion Week I was so… well, “happy”! I got so many compliments when I was sporting the haute accessory with my Donna Mizani romper (full look here).

FYI: Stay tuned for an amaze giveaway Monday, plus I’m revealing a new project I’ve been working on! Can’t wait!!

Fall Fashion: Cozy Chic

Fall is probably my favorite season.  I love that there is so much versatility with fall fashion.  Some of my most coveted looks are oversized sweaters mixed with skinny jeans and biker boots.  Another favorite look, black sheer tights, a cute cocktail dress, ankle booties and a faux fur jacket.  The sky’s the limit when it comes to San Diego style in the fall.

Today actually got a little chilly.  There were blue skies but a cold front coming in.  This oversized dolman sweater had me at hello.  I’m so absolutely in love with this style.  It’s one of those you can’t go wrong, throw it on and go, look cute without trying… You get my drift.  I always pay attention to detail when it comes to finding the perfect sweater.  The cable knit  and cowl neck add a rich look without an over the top price tag.  I think the heather grey color is a great alternative to the traditional safe black.  Since it has been too hot for leather I wore my wax coated denim and grabbed my forever21 cross body bag.  I’m an advocate for mixing your highs and lows so my finishing touch was my lace Louboutin booties.  These shoes have been an all-time fave!  The glitter cheetah mixed with the subtle lace and patent leather left my look polished and pretty.
