Warm Hues for Winter

warmhues

Because you can’t always dress to the nines, I opt for dressed up duds with an effortless twist.  Coated denim is my go to pant, it looks dressy but its still denim.  I currently have 4 pairs of coated denim in 4 different shades.  They really go with EVERYTHING and are a great alternative to pricey leather.  I wore a basic neutral pump, and cable knit sweater in warm hues, which are sure to be a perfect fit no matter where you’re heading.  This look is standard for me running around the store helping clients or if I have a last minute meeting.  It’s put together without trying too hard.  Another great thing about neutral hues, they are understated and non threatening.  Meaning, you stick with a basic color way and you can throw in 3 or four shades without looking like you got dressed in the dark. lol.  Remember this, neutrals are like all black, its polished and perfect all year round.

#Neon Bliss in Statement Sweatshirt by Clover Canyon

San Diego really is sunshine and feelin’ fine.  I was so excited for a little cold front to come in but spoke to soon…  We got a heat wave instead. AYYYAYAI!  Thankfully fashion is ahead of the game and Resort is filtering in, one vibrant shade at a time.  I opted for a sporty look today and incorporated neon hues to compliment this feel-good weather.  Clover Canyon is notorious for their eye catching bold prints and bright colors, so I paired this statement sweatshirt with a sporty drawstring skirt and poppy pumps.  Today was really a run around errand day…  I didn’t need a huge bag just a little something for my lipgloss and credit cards.  My most recent obsession is this bossy bag that can be used as a coin purse, credit card/cash holder, etc.  I take it everywhere and stash the essentials in it.  The overzealous text leaves your girlfriends obsessed and onlookers dying to have it.

Dressed for Sweater Weather in BCBG Sweater

LA-ready for a shopping trip with the girls. I went for a casual cool style.  It was a chilly day and I had a fun lunch planned.  I’m normally anti-hats at a restaurant but thought this cute leather baseball cap was appropriate for our outside patio dining at Ivy.  

So, It’s finally sweater weather in SoCal and I couldn’t be more excited!  I love wearing a cozy oversized sweater, structured leggings and fun booties.  These Alaia boots are edgy and add excitement to an otherwise casual look.  I layered some chunky chain bracelets, grabbed my go-to sunnies and headed out.   For the best shopping in LA, check out some of my favorites; Intermix, All Saints & Kitson LA all on robertson blvd.  Hip, hot and  happening!
