Sarah's Ambitions - In the Navy

Navy shirt: Express (old). Navy pants: BCBGeneration. Bag: Hamilton by Michael Kors. Glitter heels: Target. Faux leather moto: Target. Round sunglasses: Target. Wishbone necklace: c/o Rocksbox. Gem bracelet: Forever21. Men’s watch: Invicta. Floral bracelet: my wedding jewelry.

2013 is proving to be the year of the #getitgirl. All of the hard work I put in over the last few years has helped me get to where I am today, and I must admit, I’m pretty proud.

The wishbone necklace I’m wearing was a gift from Rocksbox, a really neat jewelry subscription service that lets you rock designer pieces for $19 a month, shipped right to your door. This piece has become a favorite of mine – a wishbone is symbolic of luck, but the right amount of graceful effort is what gets the prize. True #getitgirl material.

Monochrome has been my favorite trend of late, from this all-navy outfit to my last all-white ensemble to my go-to black attire. What about you? I can’t wait to share all my adventures in style over the next year.

Feeling Good

Aviator sunglasses: 1903s in black c/o Ellison Sunglass Co. // Angora sweater: Ann Taylor // Faux leather skater skirt: H&M // Faux fur vest: Rachel Zoe (last season, similar from this season here) // Black opaque tights: L’eggs via Walgreen’s (similar from ASOS here) // Black bow flats: Ivanka Trump via Nordstrom (sold out, similar here) // Bordeaux handbag: Michael Kors Astrid satchel // Gold tiered necklace: Target // Men’s watch: Invicta, borrowed from le hubs

When I discovered Ellison Sunglass Co. through The Facets Magazine, I was really moved. Not only do they have beautiful design, with every purchase of a pair of Ellison sunglasses, they cover the cost of a corrective eye surgery for someone in need. Their motto, “Look Good. Do Good.” is exactly what I love to see in fashion. Brands that find a way to give back top my list, and I couldn’t be more proud of my Ellison 1903s! Le hubs also loves them and has already borrowed them a few times. Nothing like a pair of his-and-hers sunglasses to make a relationship solid!

This #getitgirl is also feeling good about life. On a sartorial note, I have been slowly adding some spice to my wardrobe of basics, and I am loving the way my style is growing. This applies to life, too: as I grow wiser and more seasoned, that makes the sweetness that much better.

Fall 2012 Trend Seeker: Oxblood

Autumn is a season of change. In my home state, temperatures drop and daylight grows scarce enough to encourage deciduous trees to explode in a burgundy and sienna symphony. In San Francisco, we get rain, some vibrant sunsets and full poetic fashion license to express ourselves with the hottest trends and a heavy dose of individuality.

This fall, oxblood is huge, and so on point. Call it wine, burgundy, bordeaux — I’ve even heard rouge — whatever the name, this deep, dark rose color still is as sweet. The rich, enveloping undertone sets the stage for a warmly accessorized season. Try these fun pieces to add a little pop to your staples. I paired it with black and white, my go-to outfit, but some mixed prints of the same burgundy color family would make a great weekend ensemble for the bold fashionista.

No matter how you say it or style it, this color is sure to be a superb sartorial addition this season. Stock up on accessories and you can’t go wrong. They’ll pair and mix with ease!

Seaside Sunset Sparkle

Sequin sweater: H&M // White button-up: Banana Republic // Waxed denim: Target // Round sunglasses: Target // Rhinestone watch: Relic // Tan handbag: Michael Kors Hamilton // Leather wedge heels: Steve Madden

Sometimes, you just need full-frontal sequins to make the day happen. On days like that, I wear outfits like this. To make it work for the office, simple black pants (or even a pencil skirt) bring werk to work without confusing everyone who isn’t a fashion blogger.

The power of a pretty outfit is quite remarkable. A good wedge heel can lift spirits, too, and sequins can add sparkle back to the disenchanted eye. Beauty may be in the eye of the beholder, but confidence also lies within the #getitgirl who expresses herself.

Oxblood and a Feathered Mini

Oxblood handbag: Michael Kors Astrid Satchel // Faux feather mini skirt: H&M collection for Lana Del Ray // Black sheer button-up: Pleione via Nordstrom Rack (similar here from Urban Outfitters) // Black cami: Banana Republic // Faux leather moto: Target  (last year, new version here)

Round sunglasses: Target // Tiered neckace: Target // Watch: Invicta, borrowed from le hubs // Bordeaux suede flats: Ivanka Trump via Nordstrom

This outfit was all about making a statement — comfortably. Upon seeing this skirt in a press release about the Lana Del Rey Fall 2012 collection for H&M, I knew it absolutely had to be mine. I had been coveting a similar style from Kate Spade after seeing it on Blair of Atlantic-Pacific, and for $30, you know I bought this as soon as it arrived in stores! (If you go for it, too, I sized up for added length and am taking in the waist.) Paired with a POC from my go-to flats, a favorite, easy shirt and some classic accessories, I felt pretty faboosh.

The thing is, I want my clothes to look good and feel good. This outfit was simple enough to last a 12-hour day full of writing, editing, managing accounts and traipsing about on site without any issues, but I still showcased my inner fashion girl. I like to refer to this kind of outfit as a #fashiongirlsolution. On trend, on budget, on point for work.

How do you keep up your fashion game at the office? Tweet me and let me know! Let’s spread the style inspiration. I’ll share my favorites on Facebook and Pinterest!

Here’s to a great Monday, fellow fashionistas. Go get it, girls!

Shorts Chic

Faux fur vest: Rachel Zoe (last year, new version here) // Black cardigan: Express (old, new version here) // Sheer black blouse: Pleione via Nordstrom Rack (similar here) // Perfect black cami: Banana Republic // Bow belt shorts: Mimi Chica (similar here) // Espadrille wedges: Target (similar here) // Round sunglasses: Target (similar here with flair) // Gold layered necklace: H&M (last year, similar here)

Getting things done requires an outfit that can move, and being myself requires that it be chic. What better combination than a faux fur vest by one of my favorites, Rachel Zoe, and some bow-belted shorts? I have been loving an all-black combination with a little pizazz for a chic surprise; so quintessentially NY while I enjoy my CA lifestyle. Maybe someday I’ll try the big city, but for now, I’m loving my beautiful bay.
