From time to time I fall into a fashion slump. I get a little lazy and laid-back with my style because San Diego is such a casual, go with the flow kinda city. After a week or two of alternating my v’neck tees w/ skinny jeans and my staple “bang around” lulu lemon gear, I park myself at the bookstore for inspiration on fashion trends. The back story of so many designers is filled with triumph, failure, success and a whole lot of trial and error. It’s the story along the way that makes the brand what it is today. Coco Chanel for instance started designing hats and to think it’s now an icon of a brand, a classic for over 100 years. Well, like Chanel, our style continues to evolve and change but what’s most important about fashion is finding out what we feel most confident and comfortable in & really tapping into what works for us.
So here I am at Warwicks bookstore in La Jolla checking out some Paris Style. Jeans are great but how can we dress em up so we don’t look so drab. I paired my faded grey J brand Jeans with an Equipment snake print cashmere sweater. Heels weren’t appropriate so I grabbed my favorite cheepy oxfords from BP at Nordstroms, they’re easy and comfy. Since I knew I’d be busy flipping through pages, I went for my Forever21 cross body faux leather satchel. I left motivated and excited. In fact, this trip to Warwicks was the inspiration behind my San Diego Fashion Week look. Stay tuned to check out what I wore and how art and architecture inspired my outfit choice.
