Vested

Fall fashion tweed vest sweater dress and bootsI have been waiting patiently for the temperature to drop and autumn weather to arrive…until now!  With regard to fashion, autumn is my favorite season so I had to indulge by pulling out these boots and this sweater dress.  Just to remind myself how much I’m looking forward to fall fashion.

Hope you had a great week.  Happy Monday.  Be stylish and be well! xo

Grey Zone

DSC_1720_2Like an annual tradition, every winter I tell myself grey is the new black.  It’s probably my most beloved color.  It is genuinely a neutral color covering all colorless shades between black and white.  And because it is achromatic, or colorless, it pairs with ANY color.  That’s a beautiful thing!  However, in spite of it, I decided to wear this achromatic color as a monochromatic look.  This grey on grey with bold stripes and pinstripes ensemble looks casually chic together!  Lastly, for that effortless vibe, a grey slouchy beanie finishes off this monochromatic look.

DSC_1740_2DSC_1862_2DSC_1682_2DSC_1747_2DSC_1908_2DSC_1831_2I picked up these Zara shorts while in New York.  The black is available online right now.  I think this pinstripe version will be available online soon.  So check their site in the next couple of weeks.  It’s a great staple!

Neutral Ground

DSC_8031_2Amongst my list of essentials for any season is a feminine military jacket!  I like this one because it’s not overwhelmingly long for my petite frame.  It’s cinched at the waist and accentuates a feminine silhouette.  The standup collar projects a corporal vibe.  And the studs add just enough embellishment to distinguish the jacket as belonging on the streets rather than in the trenches.  The military jacket is truly utilitarian because it’s neutral color lends itself to a plethora of looks and color palettes.  Here, I’ve paired it with an entirely neutral ensemble where every article is an essential piece in my opinion!

Before NOON

DSC_5451Without stirring up venomous jealousy, I must share that autumn in Northern California is sublime utopia, if it existed.  We are still enjoying our Indian summer with warm daytime temperatures sandwiched between mild, crisp mornings and evenings.  These photos were taken in the morning when an ensemble like this is perfectly comfortable as the air is crisp.  Knee high, platform, stiletto boots before noon, you ask?!?!  Why not, I ask in return?! 😉

DSC_5588DSC_5487These Siwy, faux leather shorts were a tiny bit short, even by my standards.  So, I embellished and lengthened with a lace trim addition.  Voila!  I managed to sneak in a touch of lace AND gain a couple of inches.

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.
