(Nicholas shirt, H&M shorts, Steve Madden shoes, Proenza Schouler bag)
Call me a creature of habit but I always go back to wearing a black and white combination. It just always feels so clean, chic and sophisticated. It also allows you to play with shapes while still remaining understated. I’m usually one to highlight my waist but today it was all about the shoulders and I love this off the shoulder top by Nicholas the label. It has a clean modern feel with its bell sleeves & button back & looked perfect draped slightly over-sized over my black mini curlottes/shorts. Shop my look below:
It was one of those outfits that was one of those spare of the moment things. I was cold so I bought a hoodie! It was more for function than anything else. It was also one of those days that the cool fog of San Francisco brought some unwanted frizz to my usual straighter mane so I wasn’t feeling primped or at my best. Certainly wasn’t feeling up to doing a photo shoot for my blog! But, my husband (bless him) kept snapping away against my wishes. Maybe it was the light, the scenery or the ‘spare of the moment’ outfit but once I viewed these snaps I actually liked them. Maybe sometimes when you plan less or out of your hair comfort zone could be the time when you are at your best. Something to think about.
Well, its no joke. I’m totally into this Fringe trend. Last week it was all about the fringe skirt and today it’s all about the jacket. And, boy I love this jacket!! My simple grey tee and jeans combo took on a new life/energy/edge with each and every single step. You got to love an item when it redefines your basics! My golden oldie fringe bag of almost the same grey hue felt undeniably right to match. I was swinging all over Chapel street.
This jacket is part of the H&M ‘Divided’ collection out now in stores nationally. I’m thrilled to collaborate with H&M to show this collection and will be showing more story’s from this range later this week. Stay tuned. x
I like to keep things simple so my take on the fringe skirt is to highlight exactly what it is. To complicate such a beautiful thing would subtract from the very essence & spirit of it, right? Today a white shirt felt like the perfect compliment. A clean, classic, non-distracting item letting you focus on the star of the show… THE FRINGE SKIRT..
Was thrilled when H&M approached me on collaborating with them in showing their new ‘Divided Collection’. I had so many cool items to choose from (I was like a kid in a candy store) but what I was obsessed with most was this fringe skirt. I first saw someone sport one on the Satorialist & then various versions started popping up on my Instagram feed. I had to have one & so in love with this suede version! Out in H&M stores nationally from July 27th so be quick.
It was one of those days where I didn’t think I could get a blog post up! All the odds were against me…it was raining, dull, freezing, too late in the day & my shirt was crushed from the jacket I had on previously (oopsies). But as usual my perseverance to get a blog post done was strong & I had on my first double denim outfit so it had to be achieved no matter what. It would be a shame if I couldn’t share my ripped/tucked/rolled getup despite the conditions! I was frozen to say the least. Funny how what you love to do most could also be your greatest source of pain. But in the end I got there somehow.
