Poncho Style

Casual autumn outfit poncho skinny black jeans and booties

Are you at all surprised I’m cozying up to this poncho?  It’s chunky, comfortable, and a fantastic layering piece.  (Not to mention on sale too!)  It’s exactly the kind of winter essential for a perfectly, nonchalant style.  If you love army green as much as I do, you’ll love this one.  And, if you are willing to make a little investment, this classic camel poncho is my ultimate favorite.

Spiked in Grey

Edgy Tweed skirt grey denim jacketSince I can recall, grey has been my black.  All fifty shades of grey!  So when I saw this studded denim jacket, I knew it’d be the perfect way to spike up my grey repertoire.  Thus, today’s neutral ensemble is a play on textures and shades of grey.

Happy Wednesday.  Hope your week is going well so far.  Be stylish and be well! xo

Akin to Lingerie

DSC_3902_2Considering my obsession for lace, it’s only natural I gravitate towards lingerie inspired clothing.  Especially, when adorned with none other than…LACE 😉  This dress is really not as daunting as ‘akin to lingerie’ may sound.  Plaid is a print I automatically associate with proper, conservatism, even religion.  Must be an association formulated by my Catholic school upbringing!  Thus, to me, the print offsets the risqué factor which comes along with lingerie inspired fashion and legitimizes it as a daytime dress.  When I bought this dress, I envisioned layering it over a black, thin, long-sleeve shirt paired with stockings or knee high boots.  Something very cozy and autumn-like.  However, with the San Francisco Indian summer still strongly upon us, I couldn’t fathom the thought of that many layers when doing this shoot.  The elimination process began and this is what I was left with.  I did add a casual jacket which would pair effortlessly with this look.  I will try to circle back to this dress during the colder months and show it styled for fall or winter.
