My friend Jamie and I are heading to Los Altos tonight to attend this fun spring art and fashion event. If you are in the area you need to stop by to check it out! If you can’t make it I am hoping to be able to share some pictures on Instagram to make sure to stay connected!

It’s Fall, my favorite season for fashion. I think it is the most comfortable season and the easiest time of year to get dressed. Even here in California where the weather never gets too cold the mornings are crisp and the leaves are changing color. I love wearing boots, sweaters, and rich color and today I wanted to share fun fashion pieces that I am either wearing right now or wish I owned so I could wear them right now.
My brown boots and dark skinny jeans are a staple with chunky sweaters. I also have a go-to pair of boot cut jeans to wear with flats and tops. If it is really chilly at night and I need a wool coat I grab my purple jcrew double cloth coat that I bought I clearance last year.
What are your favorite pieces this fall? Do you have a similar style?
Looking at the title you might be expecting me to show off fancy closet organizing tools and custom cabinets but not today. Not in my closet. My closet it actually pretty basic, just a straight bar with a shelf above. It is the 4th closet I have had to move into over the last 6 years and it seems to work for me just fine. I spent an hour sorting through my closet and following my organizing rules on Sunday for my seasonal purge so I snapped some pictures to give you an inside look.
My mom took me to all of her favorite shops on Hilton Head Island when I was a visiting over Easter. One of her favorite stores carries a brand called Fresh Produce, my mom loves it because everything is so cute and comfy. Coincidentally Fresh Produce just contacted me and asked me if I would be interested in reviewing one of their products, of course I said yes!
I wanted to show you the top but Harper kept trying to jump in the pictures, ha! Here is more of a candid shot but you can see that I paired the top with my boyfriend jeans, I rolled them up a bit and added my silver J.Crew sandals for some sparkle. I have also been wearing this top with my black yoga pants, it is perfect for running errands and for layering for my evening walks with the dog.
I really love the pockets, they give it more of a comfy casual feel.
Thank you for letting me review your product Fresh Produce! I hope you all like their stuff as much as I do, now is the time to stock up on comfy clothes for Spring and Summer!
I met my friend Roberta for our annual shopping trip yesterday and I was really disappointed with what is in stores right now. All I want is comfortable, cute clothes that are versatile from season to season. I decided to hit the drawing board…i.e. Polyvore to create a fashion board based on what I want to wear now. Check it out and let me know what you think of what is in stores right now, are you as disappointed as me?
A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to guest blog over on my friend Lauren’s blog, The Big Blonde Hair Blog. Her blog is based on the fashions of the Bravo’s Real Housewives, she shares the secrets behind what they wear on and off the show and how you can replicate their looks for less. She heard that I was a fan of Gossip Girl and thought it would be fun to switch things up and guest blog about the fashions seen on the popular CW show.
Gossip Girl is one of my guilty pleasures each and every Monday. It is one of those no-brainer shows that is fun to watch and just unwind when reality television has worn me out. Don’t get me wrong, I love the reality shows but sometimes I find myself worrying about the characters and stressing out for them. For instance, when the New Jersey Housewives were having problems with Danielle last season I found myself commenting on Caroline Manzo’s facebook page as if we were friends in real life! My husband always has to remind me that the housewives are not my real friends and that the shows are taped in advance so their problems have hopefully been worked out, ha!
With Gossip Girl I know I am always in for some fresh drama, great fashion, and cute boys (even though I am 30 and married I can still admit that Chase Crawford is a hottie). Today I wanted to share some fashion inspiration based on the two main female characters, Serena and Blair. Serena is played by Blake Lively who has legs for days and perfect hair and Blair is played by Leighton Meester who has the cutest classic figure. Each character has flawless style of their own, Serena has a very trendy yet glamorous style while Blair’s is more classic and refined. I find myself wishing I owned pieces from both of their wardrobes because I typically love classic style but from time to time accessorize with trendy items like hats and fun patterns.
Serena’s character is a socialite who spends most of her days lunching with friends and her nights at fundraisers and cocktail parties. Her daytime staples include leggings, floral mini skirts and bright colored short shorts, tanks, and blazers. She also loves over sized handbags and jewelry along with scarves and hats. For evening events she is usually wearing a backless or asymmetrical gown or a glittery cocktail dress. Here is an inspiration board I created based on her style. If you would like to recreate her look on your own I would suggest shopping at Forever 21, Vince, Nordstrom, Ralph Lauren, or Gucci.
Blair’s is busy planning her wedding this season (we’ll see if that actually happens). Her style is much more classic, very much inspired by Jackie O or Audrey Hepburn. She is typically styled in floral or geometric tops and skirts or sheath dresses during the day. I find it strange that she rarely wears pants, I could never live without my jeans! At the evening events she attends she is always styled in the most amazing gowns in pretty jewel tones likes emerald or sapphire. Here as an inspiration board created based on her looks. If you love her style and would like to recreate it yourself I would suggest shopping at Kate Spade, Nordstrom, Moschino, or Ann Taylor.
