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.

Miracle Lace

Professional outfit navy sweater lace pencil skirt  This might be the last of my summer look as the heat has finally given way to some milder temperature in San Francisco.  This simple outfit with a touch of lace is proof that it doesn’t need to be fancy to be chic.  Lace works miracles!

Happy Wednesday.  Be stylish and be well! xo

Mesh Accents

Cocktail dress blue with draped leather jacketSubtle and strategically placed mesh panel accents on this otherwise classic dress adds edge and flirtation.  Exactly the elements I look for in a cocktail dress.  To make the transparent mesh the focal point of this look, I kept all the accessories simple and to a minimum.

Forgive me for being MIA this past week as I attended a vision conference for continuing education and to check out all the latest and greatest in eyewear.  Hope you had a great weekend.  Happy Monday, be stylish and be well! xo

Chanel Tweed

DSC_2169I’m at the Park Hotel in the San Francisco East Bay where the French Château style architecture adds to the charm and elegance of this hotel.  Using this as my inspiration, I started this outfit with this Zara skirt.  This tweed skirt is undeniably, reminiscent of the iconic Chanel tweed.  And what better brand to epitomize Parisian fashion than Chanel?  I usually gravitate towards edgier pieces, but was drawn to this skirt  by it’s modern reiteration with its zipper details.  My natural inclination would be to dress down this skirt with a white tee and a leather jacket.  But today, I wanted to challenge myself to a look which would stretch my own personal style.  Thus, I paired it with a button down shirt instead and then added pieces with colors extrapolated from the skirt.  Lastly, to finish off my French inspired look I grabbed none other than my Chanel bag!  The pièce de résistance!
