American Girl

COVER

I was really digging this outfit today.  I was having a TOTAL fat day, (we all have them and HATE them) ugh!  So, I went for a loose dress to try to hide my belly.  Ok, whatever, I felt comfortable so thats all I cared about.  Sometimes it’s not always about what’s most flattering, but what makes you feel comfortable that day.  So, I went with it.  It was a chilly La Jolla afternoon but the sun was out.   I felt it was only appropriate to wear this dress as I was running out of time to wear the last of my fall finds.  BTW, I can’t believe fall is already behind us.  Like, where the heck did the year go??  Anyways, I wanted to wear cute sneakers with this dress for a skater girl look but went with these Steve Madden booties to stick with a fall feel.  My inexpensive saddle bag paired perfectly with the leather detailing in the dress and my booties.  My ombre sunnies completed my look as I said farewell to fall…

Welcome to the Jungle in Clover Canyon Amazon Skirt

THE CHAMPAGNE BLONDE 2014 SPRING CLOVER CANYON

Welcome home to me!  After an AMAZING, but cold trip to Europe, I couldn’t wait to rock a warm weather look.  I picked the most tropical/jungle style I could find in my crazy closet. Which brings me to another point, WOW has Fashion transformed over the last 30 years, especially for women.  I love that I can wear this over-the-top Clover Canyon Amazon skirt paired with an oversized sweater, bold pumps and be ready for a full days work.  As I have said before, my style is very different from most.  When it comes to dressing up, there’s just one thing I’m not willing to compromise, my comfort.  Sorry babes, I refuse to obide by the old saying “pain is beauty”.  F* that.  So, today I had a hip hugging skirt on and a fitted tank was definitely not in the cards, so I grabbed a comfy oversized sweater to give my style a more laid back feel.  Because I’m in an industry where image can make or break your business, I opted for a classic Chanel pump to clarify my otherwise confusing look.  I was ready for a client filled day while not compromising my comfort.  San Diego, I missed you so! <3 <3 <3

Eyes (and Heart-Shaped Sunnies) on Me with Black Pencil Skirt

EYES-ON-ME

Sometimes fashion needs to be cray cray and today was most definitely one of those days.  I had back to back meetings with reps for potential new lines to carry at the boutique.  I had to go for something funky, yet business appropriate.  I started with my pencil.  I’ve said it before and I’ll preach it again, buy a staple black pencil skirt.  PLEASE!!!!  We ALL benefit from every girl having the perfect tailored, go-to, black skirt.  It’s chic, easy and effortless.  Ok, done yelling at you!  I wore my favorite knit skirt with a cheeky graphic tee.  Right now, women’s suiting is going from a more structured style to a more flirty flare.  I picked up on the bright red shade and went for a loud and proud bag.  To bring the look to a more conservative side, I wore my tuxedo pumps to polish my look.  If you are going to go for more edge, always bring a tasteful jacket. (Just in case.)  On a different note, I can not wait to show you guys what new lines are in store for 2014! Thank god for fashion!  Wouldn’t life be boring without it?

Spotted in Parker Skirt and Wedge Sneakers

SPOTTED

Tom-Boy doesn’t always have to be over sized tees, relaxed jeans and sneaks.  This time I felt the need to switch up the tom-boy trend.  I paired this adorable flared Parker skirt with a grunge denim jacket and wedge sneaks.  I was on a sweet tooth hunt for some tasty strawberries… I needed a break from a busy day working on the blog and styling meetings.  For those girls wanting to wear something comfy but can’t compromise your small stature, opt for a cute pair of wedge sneakers.  I wear these babies with everything.  They’re not as boring as your converse and have a super cute look once you get over the love/hate relationship.  I would normally rock these with a solid leather skirt, white tee and cool jacket but went for the sporty style instead.  High-waisted skirts need balance, especially when you have a bold print.  I toned it down with a silk loose cami and denim/ sweater jacket.  I felt flirty and fun… and thankfully found that delicious box of chocolate covered strawberries I was looking for. mmmm. yummy. Go for it, indulge.
