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…

Street Chic

street chicSo no matter what, always, always, always invest in a good leather jacket.  TRUST ME!  You will have it forever.  There are some things you sometimes have to splurge on and I believe a good quality, non trendy leather jacket is the perfect investment.  So this adorable little number has style and practicality.  I would throw this on over a cute cocktail dress when heading downtown or wear it on a chilly day in san diego to go grab coffee with the girls.  I’m also loving this distressed leather jacket by Mackage (it’s on my wishlist!) Today I had a million errands to run and didn’t really feel like bumming it in my VS tee and skinnies.  So, the jacket, rose gold sunnies and ZARA camo espadrilles gave me a cute street chic look that was perfect for my busy day.leather2leather3leather casual street chicstreet chic

LA Street Style

los angeles street style

I’m fascinated by LA street style. What can I say? I love “effortless chic”!!

I make frequent buying trips to L.A. for my boutique and I find that my outfits as well as my purchases are becoming edgier and more casual.  I have often found that the looks that take the shortest amount of time, thought, and effort to put together turn out the best. It’s what LA street style is all about!

For every buying trip, I always bring my cute little notebook. It’s like an accessory in itself. It’s full of notes about the upcoming seasons’ trends and new twists on the classics.

TAKE NOTE: I’m currently obsessed with these Jbrand Photo-Ready skinnies. They are ultra-slimming and super-stretchy without losing shape. The “blacklash” wash is just perfect. I can’t wait to share more of my style notes in an upcoming post!
