Be prepared

That feeling when you just want to stylishly layer fall pieces but can't because this weather is just all over the place...#icant. What's a girl to do? Well, you just gotta be prepared for anything and cross your fingers! What started of as a boho look ended up kinda edgy.  I decided to break out my fun polka dot jeans and of course gravitated towards another favorite floral kimono of mine. I'm all about casual outfits so this look was the perfect ensemble to ring in the weekend!

Home Decor: French Country Vintage Style


The anticipation of waiting on whether or not we are going to be home owners is very stressful. So while we wait patiently, all we can do is envision how we would like our home to look like by perusing through pictures for inspiration. I am so glad the hubby and I agree on decorating the home using vintage pieces, however, the bad part (for him) is that I'm leaning toward a french vintage country style. I need to make sure I find a balance and not make it too girly and still incorporate my style without having it look like a hot mess. I can see pink peonies all around the home and vintage bottles as accent pieces, not to mention distressed shutters as wall accents. I'm so ready to start!

Blazing Through Fall

  When I think of blazers I think of a day in the office due to the collar and sophisticated button down. Recently, designer trends have changed the way blazers were supposed to be worn by adding different flares that bring casual and femininity to the look. I've had this blazer in my closet for quite a while and I think it's time I put it to use. My love for graphic tee's is still going strong and thought it'd be perfect to pair it with a fun plaid blazer instead of my other obsession - kimonos. While I'm at it, I added layers of statement necklaces to dress it up just a tad bit but still keep the look casual. It's always fun to get out of your comfort zone!!

Eclectic

If you follow me, you know I have a soft spot for boho styles. I can't help but gravitate toward staples that scream comfort!...and in Cali, comfort is the norm. The eclectic style makes me feel happy and free - I can't get enough of it! This long knit crochet vest is the perfect addition to my fall wardrobe. With temperatures constantly changing, I know it's one piece I can wear that'll satisfy colder and warm conditions. With this look, I went with my birthday dress I wore here and of course, my favorite oxblood booties for a more casual vibe. Last but not least, one of my favorite berry lipsticks to seal the deal!

Fall Fashion: Graphic Tee

Everyone knows that one of California's advantages is the weather. No matter what season we're in, you can get away with wearing anything.  I came across this baseball graphic tee at Shimmer and I knew it would be a perfect addition to my fall collection. When a top can be dressed up or down, It's definitely a PLUS in my book and this does just that. Whether you pair it with a casual look like this or dress it up with a pencil skirt and heels, this staple can be used many ways. Since mornings can be a little chilly around this time of year, I decided to carry around a plaid shirt for those very moments.

Now an update on the house! Things are going very well with our house buying process. I can't wait to share more details of our new home with you all but I want to make sure everything goes smoothly before confirming it's officially ours. I've been non-stop perusing through Pinterest for home decor ideas and boy do I feel overwhelmed! It's so much fun...and addicting! Make sure you follow me on Facebook or Instagram to keep up with my new journey! xo.

Floral & Dark Jegging

Back in the day I used to think that too much denim was extremely old school, and that it brought me back to my parents' old days. This is what I love about fashion, you can go back to the fashion history books and see what worked then, and what twist I can put on them now. With confidence and creativity, you can make anything trendy.  With that being said, I decided to take a risk and bodly wear this combination by wearing a lighter chambray shirt and a good pair of dark jeggings. To add contrast, I decided on a floral belt that stood out and complimented the overall look perfectly. I'm sure you'll start seeing similar looks this fall!

Fall Style: Oxblood Scallop Skirt

I guess San Diego didn't get the memo that Summer has ended so my desire to layer will have to wait. But for now, wearing fall colors will suffice. A blouse such as this one could be paired in many ways, whether you wear it with skinny jeans shown here or a pretty skirt such as the one I'm wearing, the styling options are endless!
