Easy Chic

Faux fur: H&M. Aviators: 1903s c/o Ellison Sunglass Co. Black jacket: Springfield (purchased in Spain, Spring 2009). Sheer black button-up: Pleione via Nordstrom Rack. Camisole: Banana Republic. Bootcut denim: Gap Long & Lean. Bordeaux handbag: Astrid Satchel by Michael Kors. Black pumps: Steve Madden. Men’s watch: Invicta, borrowed from le hubs.

This outfit was very quick to assemble and get out the door. We had places to be and people to see without time to get ready — which is why I love stocking up on go-to pieces like these that don’t require much strategizing in case of emergency.

P.S. A smile is always in season and is the easiest accessory 😉


Dashing Florals

Floral scarf: H&M (last year) // White boyfriend button-up: Gap // Black lacy shorts: BCBG Max Azria (similar here) // Oversize black jacket: Springfield (purchased in Spain, Spring 2009) // Red suede bow flats: Ivanka Trump // Black patent shoulder bag: Coach (old) // Round sunglasses: Target // Gold and silver watch: Invicta, borrowed from le hubs (similar, smaller version here)

Lately, my life has been all go, go, go, which is just fine for this #getitgirl. I’ve been so busy with my new job that I haven’t been home in time at night to snap outfit photos before dark, and on the weekends, sleep has been my top priority (followed closely by watching Psych on Netflix with le hubs and our snugglepups).

This outfit is my perfect run-out-the-door kind of look for a busy Sunday afternoon. A simple black and white combination (don’t even feign surprise) with a dash of floral and pop of red, and we were in business.

Le hubs and I drove to San Francisco, where I bought my first bit of Chanel, a bottle of Dragon nail polish. We then drove down the peninsula and found the sunshine and a new hairstylist who tamed my tresses five minutes after we took these photos. (TGFY — thank goodness for Yelp!) A quick mani/pedi, plenty of puppy snuggles and a slice of Domino’s new gluten-free pizza later, le hubs and I called it a weekend.

The little things always end up really being the big things. Enjoying these moments with my little Cali family may seem like the norm, but it’s what I love most. And a quick swish of a scarf takes but a moment, but really makes the outfit.

Parallels in life and fashion — my work here is done.
