Styling a Denim Skirt

top (similar) // skirt (on sale!) // espadrilles (go up 1/2 size) // purse // sunglasses

I'll be the first to admit that my style is based on ease and comfort. And I might be guilty of wearing jeans like it's my second skin. But figured I could step out of my usual jean pants into it's sister, the jean skirt. Guess what? It was the highlight of my outfits that week. I felt like people in the office just saw my legs for the first time because there were a heap of compliments. It's one of those pieces that has enough details and simplicity at the same time. While I decided to rewear it for the weekend with stripes (you can never go wrong with stripes, right?). For the office, I actually went more minimal and wore a simple white tee and this long cardi. In the fall, I know I'll just add some tall boots. 

Anyway, it's time to flashback to last year's look here. Funny enough, it's about denim! Clearly, we can agree denim will always be a closet staple.

Styling Gingham for Fall

jacket (size xs) // dress (size 0) // booties 

You may have remember seeing this dress before and that's because it was in this post here. When I fell for this dress, I knew we were on the cusp of entering Fall (maybe too hopeful for LA), so I gave myself a challenge. I needed to come up with several ways to style this if I am going to keep it. My closet gets filled too easily with one hit wonders and I'm waiting for the day that the boyfriend realizes when my stuff starts making it to his side of the closet. While the temperatures might not be cool enough outside for moto jackets, pairing this moto jacket and booties instantly updates this dress. And when it's really chilly, putting on some tights and a chunky scarf will make this dress work. 

Thank you for all of you linking up! It really makes us so happy to look at your posts for inspiration!

Embroidered Jean Jacket

The calendar might say September, but it sure doesn't feel like it here! LA is having a major heat wave (upwards of 100 degrees) and that was before these pictures were taken. Truth be told, I caught myself wanting to complain about it. But with everything going on in Houston, this heatwave is not that bad. Sure, it's uncomfortable. Sure, I'm sweaty and sticky. It's not pretty, but my life and home is intact. I can go on with my day-to-day schedule something easily taken for granted. Even though it's blazing outside, I still can dream about wearing this adorable jacket in the coming months rather than worrying about rebuilding my home. It's certainly changed my perspective.

Okay, and on to regular programing with last year's look. There's nothing like a good neutral look with a pop of color! Those flats need to be brought back out asap!

Thanks so much for linking up! There always is so much inspiration with your posts!
