More Black

Skirt - Goodnight Macaroon, Boots - Balenciaga)

Monochromatic black has pretty much been my uniform for the last five days. Sitting here in a black maxi dress as I type this post. I ransacked my closet earlier this week pulling out all my favorite black pieces and found this little gem from Goodnight Macaroon. I wore it with a very reliable mock neck top from American Apparel and Balenciaga fall staples. 

Enjoy your Friday!

I pulled my Balenciaga boots out of retirement yesterday. It's been almost a year since they needed a repair and I finally took them into my cobbler last week. He fixed the bottoms and polished them up and they're like brand new. Just in time for fall and fashion week. Wearing them with the most perfect vintage cashmere sweater and high-waist denim from Tory Burch's new collection. 

Happy Wednesday!

Sunset Cliffs

Multiple Bracelets - Vanessa Mooney)

I spent all day Saturday with my love soaking in mother nature at one of the best spots that San Diego has to offer, Sunset Cliffs. If you're ever in town, I highly recommend this spot for private sun bathing and hands down the best place to take in the sunset. We brought food, books, and music and camped out for a majority of the day. A very grounding experience.

Enjoy your Monday!

Velo Bag - Balenciaga, Oxfords - Loeffler Randall)

Scored the most comfy oxfords from Loeffler Randal this week. I'm a huge fan of the silver mirrored leather and the 1.5 inch platform makes them even more lovable. They're a perfect match with my cargo denim pants from Joie which are equally as comfortable. Topped off with all reliable recycled accessories.

Happy Saturday!

Looking for a back up fedora that's worthy of trading places with this one a few times per week. I've come to terms with the fact that I'm a crazy hat lady, and I feel naked at most times without anything on my head. I found an insane style from Maison Michel, but for the ticket, I might end up sleeping with it on to justify the price. Please leave me a comment if you have any other fedora suggestions. 

Enjoy your Thursday!

When I spotted this jumpsuit on Reformation, I knew immediately I just had to have it. It reminded me of the ivory jumpsuit that Veronica Corningstone wore in one of my favorite movies, Anchorman. The initial plan was to save it for fashion week, but I just couldn't help myself and wore it to work on Monday. It comes in a wonderful navy color that I'm pondering on purchasing as well. Proud owner of nineteen jumpsuits and counting. 

Happy Wednesday!

Lounged around yesterday in this cozy maxi dress from Indah. We had brunch at our favorite spot, and then headed out for paddle boarding, but we were quickly detoured due to a line of fussy customers. After that, we decided to head over to a local hotel to unwind in their hot tub and order dinner. Eating dinner whilst being massaged by powerful hot tub jets was exactly what we needed. Thinking of going back for round two tonight. 

Have a great Monday!

I've been long overdue for a sporty look, not because I don't love this trend, it's because I couldn't find the right pieces that meshed with my style. My first attempt at wearing leather track pants ended up in a total disaster. I sat down for a lunch meeting and literally blew out the waist band and then some. I'm sure you get the point. Lucky me, I was wearing a long blazer to hide the easy breezy-ness that was going down on my lower half. I decided to give it another go (and sized up) with these faux leather track pants from Lovers + Friends. I made it through my entire work day sans a blowout. Test passed.

Enjoy your weekend!

I recently teamed up with Brian Atwood to put one of their fall collection handbags to the test. I chose their Grace bag because it's the perfect size to fit all my belongings to take me from day to night. I was able to fit paperwork and gym clothes in addition to all of my other necessities. The wine croc combo is my favorite of the three that are offered in this style. And how charming is this little tassel? Icing on the cake! 

Make sure to check out Brian Atwood's facebook to find out how you can win a B Brian Atwood handbag of your own for the entire month of August via their instagram.

Happy Thursday!

I recently teamed up with Aussie jewelry designer, Samantha Wills, to put some of my favorite jewels to the test. Her pieces are brilliant because you can pile on several and still have a very cohesive look. I channeled my inner bohemian and layered them with my reliable floppy fedora and this crochet one piece that I scored in Sydney last December. Stoked to see where these jewels will go with me next. Definitely to a festival in late September!

I would like to extend a very generous voucher for you to use at Samantha Wills. That voucher code is SWLOVESNF and that's good for $40 off any purchase amount on their site through 8/31. Enjoy!

Torrey Pines

(Fedora - Lack Of Color, Sunglasses - The Row, Bikini - Wildfox Couture)

I spent Sunday enjoying beach life at Torrey Pines with my love. We forgot the most important thing to bring to the beach besides water, sunblock. Needless to say, we both started to burn after about two hours in the sun. We decided that it was more important to layer up and belt out 80's pop tracks on Pandora rather than leave this relaxing spot behind. Such a perfect day. 

Happy Monday!

Yesterday's work look wearing a new Carven sweater that I scored on sale from Forward. Layered it with a very perfect crepe skirt from Etoile Isabel Marant that I was finally able to track down after being sold out everywhere. It conveniently became available in my size on Forward when I purchased this sweater. Definitely meant to be.

Happy Tuesday!
