Beatnik Vibes

beatnik vibes...

I'm always one to experiment with fashion. Fashion isn't fun if you don't take a few risks. That's why I couldn't say no to this sweater.  I love the dramatic sleeves, that it's cropped and has a turtle neck, pretty much I love everything about this sweater. When it came to putting this look together, I instantly thought of pairing the sweater with my high-waisted trousers. I love the combination and pairing these retro sunglasses was the perfect touch. The overall look had a modern beatnik vibe.

Oversized Sweater

Over-sized Sweater...

The holiday season is upon us. It's that time to bring out the shimmer and sparkle, Start wearing reds, greens, fur, and dresses. Honestly, I'm not quite their yet.  This chilly weather has me thinking only two things; keeping cozy and warm. Nothing is cozier like shimmying into a over-sized sweater. I'm so cozy in this sweater, it fells like I have a blanket wrapped around me.

When putting this look together I wanted to stick to a neutral palette. Keeping with my cozy and comfortable vibes, I finished this look with black high-waisted jeans and a pair of booties. I'll get over my holiday slump and pull out all my sparkle pieces out of my closet for the holidays. But for now I'm cozy and comfortable in my blanket, I mean my sweater.

Sometimes , I like to challenge myself to step out of my wearing black all the time comfort zone. That's why I was so excited when I found this pretty floral print skater skirt. Seriously, how cute is the Lauren Conrad collection at Kohls? Skater skirts are universally flattering on every single body type. They are comfortable and easy to wear. You can dress them up or down.  I wanted to show you 3 different ways to wear the same skater skirt for fall.

1. Layer, Layer, & Layer

​Chilly weather Alert! Add that extra layer on top of your outfit.  Layer a sweater on top of your button down shirt and a moto jacket on top of that. Finish the look with sexy over-the-knee boots for more warmth.

2. Mix Patterns

Time to mix it up. Mixing patterns can be tricky. You don't want to look like you got dressed in the dark. A good style tip: Mix patterns with the same color palette or mix neutrals patterns like: leopard and white and black stripes. Mixing similar patterns work too!

3.  Add a little Sparkle*

Dress up your outfit with some sparkle: Rhinestones, glitter, pretty much anything that sparkles. Pair a top that sparkles with your skirt and it instantly takes it to the next level. This look would be good for the holidays.

Marciano Fall Launch

Marciano Fall Launch…

Yesterday I attended the launch of the Marciano Fall Collection at The Americana in Glendale.  The event had music, sweet treats, wine, and a gorgeous new collection.  The sweets were yummy and super cute, they matched the color palette of the fall collection.

I loved the collection. Usually, I see brands use a darker color palette for fall, I liked that Marciano had pops of colors like bright pinks and blues. I also saw a lot of whites. I fell in lust with this faux leather fringe skirt and this lovely blanket coat.

I recently found my dream jacket and at a steal! It’s a classic moto jacket from the MNG by Mango collection at JCPenny. I was anxious to wear it, so this event was a perfect opportunity. Paired with a sheer top and faux leather joggers I felt chic and cool. I finished the look with a cross over clutch and nude stacked-heel hybrids which are perfect for transitioning into fall.
