Top - Vintage (soooo similar on sale at Zara right now), Fuchsia maxi skirt - Gap, White Blazer - Zara, Shoes - Jeffrey Campbell, Necklace - House of Harlow 1960, Sunglasses - Chloe "2145", Bag - Vintage

Another recent outfit with one of my beloved maxis (this one also from Gap). I feel like my style is becoming sleeker...but really, who can tell at this point?

One thing I do love about this blog is going back and seeing all the outfits I wore over the last year or so. Some I loved then and still love now, some I was loved them and don't love now. Regardless, it's me. And it's fun watching things change.

088: Half of My Gap Maxi Skirt Collection

Top - Vintage, Cobalt Maxi - Gap, Belt - secondhand, Python/mesh heels - Adrienne Vittadini, Bag - Vintage from a flea market in Rome, Sunglasses - Ray-Ban

I was feeling two animals at once when I came up with this outfit - hence combining leopard print and my python heels (both of which I should really wear more often). This skirt is a maxi and it just has the most unflattering gathers around the hips, so I hiked it up, tucked in the extra fabric, and belted it to create a defined waistline. The purse is one of the spoils from my trip to Italy. A perfect doctor style in a perfect luggage brown in nearly perfect condition, I am absolutely in love with it.

What I'd Like to Be Wearing: Can't Wait For Fall

in the fall



Proenza Schouler sweater / 3.1 Phillip Lim , $865 / Zara jump suit / Hansel from Basel woolen socks / STELLA McCARTNEY platform heel booties / Illesteva tortoiseshell glasses / NARS Cosmetics long wearing lipstick / Laka white nail polish, $16

I enjoy summer as a season, but when it comes  to dressing, I, like many others, prefer fall to warmer months. The layering and boot options allow for so much more creativity!

087: Summer Standard

Top - Forever 21, Sunglasses - Ray-Ban Clubmasters, Sandals - Charlotte Russe, Palazzo Pants - Thrifted, Earrings - street vendor in Spain, Bag - Roots

It's been really warm here in California lately...so warm that I can't bare the thought of wearing anything but a light cotton blouse and a pair of pretty-ly printed palazzo pants. I have a number of them (and a number of white blouses), and basically, I just keep wearing this same outfit over and over and over again...

What I'd Like to Be Wearing: White Hot

white summer

Topshop sequined top / Alexander Wang leather sandals / Chanel 100 leather handbag / Eddie Borgo earrings, $295 / Kate Spade iPhone Case  / Illesteva cateye sunglasses / Bobbi Brown Cosmetics matte finish lipstick / Laka white nail polish, $17

Today I feel like wearing a lot of white. Doorknocker earrings completely necessary, but I really am that girl.
