bag | Free People
Hello hello! What is taupe exactly? (pronounced “tope”) Is it gray or is it beige? I’m sure many of you could care less, but as an interior decorator, it’s pretty crucial to know the difference. If I could define it, I’d say it would be the love child of gray and beige, think elephant colored.
I’ve been on the hunt for a good work bag and finally stumbled across this taupe Free People cross body. It fits my daily work paraphernalia perfectly without being overly bulky. Yep, I’m that girl at work who carries her life in her bag, ain’t nothing wrong with being prepared! And on top of it being both chic and functional, it was less than $100! The quality and the price tag just made it that much better.
So I guess we’re just skipping Spring this year and starting Summer early, about 3 months early. The recent rise in temp has put in me in a casual state of mind, and I’ve been reaching for my boyfriend jeans. So in an attempt to make my outfit more work appropriate, I added this jacket with leather taupe paneling. For added taupe continuity, I threw on my metallic heels. Have a great weekend! :)

Hello hello! It's barely February, and the weather is already heating up! I guess Mr. Groundhog's weather forecast means nothing in SoCal. I've still got so many winter outfits I want to share with you, but I have to admit that the weather has been too nice to disagree with. This past weekend was especially nice since I spent a lot of time outside in the sun with my boyfriend's new lab puppy. :) Seriously the most adorable pup ever... can't even handle. But we took a quick break from little Duke to snap some pics. I'm sure you've noticed by now my fur obsession, but this is something completely different. This is shag.
With the impending retreat of winter, comes the sad day when I have to put my furs away. But not quite yet! It still gets a little chilly at night, so I mixed what could easily be a summer look with this shaggy white jacket. Now that I look back at it, the outfit does remind me a little of Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman. (Let's just say it's my interpretation.) It's basically loungewear I dressed up with a statement necklace and pair of thigh highs, so it was extremely comfortable but a fun #OOTN for barhopping. Sometimes it's better to be underdressed, but with a twist.

Hello hello! So which is it? Plaid or tartan? I honestly can't tell. All I know is that I love this print in the colder months and that I've found a fun new way to wear it. This top is so incredibly soft and so comfortable, I've been trying to find any occasion to wear it. The length is a little tricky, but the slits on the side keep it from looking too baggy and hobo-chic. I paired it with skinny jeans and a structured jacket to balance out the bagginess of it. Now it's time to find a new way to wear it unbuttoned! :)

Hello hello! I’ve recently been obsessed with this speckled gray coat I got on sale from Zara. There really isn't much of a need for one out here in SoCal, but this one is light enough to wear without overheating. I kept the look simple in my choices of pieces, and left the details in the textures like the jacquard tee. I kept the speckled theme with my current favorite booties! They've got a chunky heel make them so easy to wear. To add more texture, I topped off the look with a fun snake skin print clutch!

coat Asos / sweater Vince Camuto / leggings Topshop / booties Vince Camuto
Hello hello! Took a little walk on the wild side for Day 2 with this fab faux fur leopard coat. I didn’t have too much time to catch the light today, but downtown Denver has twinkle lights everywhere and it was too beautiful not to share. This coat was seriously a lifesaver on this trip. If you follow me on Instagram, you’ve definitely noticed. It’s a bit of a standout piece, but I was so excited for chance to actually wear it in some cold winter weather! If you don’t already own one, I suggest investing in one, or a faux fur coat at least. As long as you don’t overdo it, it adds instant glam and warmth to any outfit.
