Fashion Friday – Fall, Finally!

It’s finally Fall in San Diego!!  We’ve had colder weather in the evenings, with rain some mornings, and sunshine in the afternoons.  Navigating these temperature changes throughout the day means wearing layers…and apparently mixed prints.  There will be a time during the day when I’m out in direct sunlight, and a striped tank with jeans will do.  But from the morning when I don’t need my coat, to the evening when I’m out at the soccer field and NEED it, I’ll know that I’m prepared for the day.  And when I say “NEED” it’s because it’s below 65 degrees.  I know, it’s just one of those problems about living in Southern California, we freeze at higher temperatures.  Oh, and yes, my jeans are pegged…a little throwback from my youth.  The mixed prints are just a fun way to add some personal style!  Have a fabulous weekend!!

Fashion Friday – The Midi Boot

My favorite look from Isabel Marant Winter 2015 Collection

Fall is here, and it’s time to bring out the boots!  Remember the mid-calf boot trend?  Well, it’s back.  But it’s been renamed as the Midi Boot.  This particular boot has been the toughest for me to style, even back in the 90’s.  So, I’ve combed through images and pinned them as reference for when I get stuck or need inspiration: here.

I’ve also added some articles, since I’m no expert.

I enjoy following the history of fashion, and re-inventing the wardrobe I have with pieces I love.  I went for a vintage take on this Midi Boot Trend.

Fashion Friday – White After Labor Day

White After Labor Day

Yep, I’m a rebel.  I’m wearing white after Labor Day.  But, if you haven’t noticed…I’m not the only one.  Why not continue to enjoy the extended summer weather and reflect its light in your attire?  I jumped at the chance to wear my new favorite top that I scored on clearance at Nordstrom Rack.  When I saw the airy flow of this blouse, I just knew that it was coming home with me.  And then I saw the flight of the beautiful birds as its pattern; I instantly fell in love!  Would you believe this was under $30?  I know, white after Labor Day approved!!  But for the skeptics, I added a bit of season transition into my outfit with suede booties to complete the look.

Fashion Friday – Little White Dress

Little White Dress

The summer months bring out the dresses, and in particular the Little White Dress.  As with the staple Little Black Dress, it also can easily be dressed up or dressed down for whatever the occasion.  This is where your style personality can shine!  Add leather, denim, jewels, flats or heels, your canvas is set for you to make this look your own.

White Maxi Skirt

In my case, I do not own a white dress, but I do have a white maxi skirt!  Because I love getting the maximum usage out of my wardrobe, I thought to turn the skirt into a dress.  Add a denim vest, cinch in the waist with a rope belt, and complete the look with a comfortable pair of stylish wedges!  The creative options are endless when it comes to a Little White Dress!
