Simple dresses and obnoxiously large jewelry is where it’s at. I got both of these pieces from ASOS which is one of my go-to’s for my staple pieces like tees, dresses, and jeans. I noticed something was missing from my dress collection (which has recently become smaller), a simple dress that can be thrown on under my assortment of jackets, can be paired with cute tights or socks and can be worn with my knee high boots. The button detailing down the front also gives it some extra flair that I haven’t found in many skater dresses.
Now let’s talk about this necklace, I can’t wait to throw this on with all of my oversized tees and distressed shorts this summer. I’ve never been a huge jewelry girl, normally sticking to staple pieces like my ring collection and a basic short chained necklace however I really like the idea of spicing up a somewhat plain jane outfit with something so drastic as this necklace. If you are looking to rework your wardrobe adding some statement jewelry pieces are a fun, simple, and cheap way to do it. Happy Monday friends!

There’s something about a simple striped tee that I can’t seem to get over. Unfortunately I was being extremely pick with my choice. For one, I wanted it to be a good price and secondly I wanted it to be a super soft boyfriend fit. After a few weeks of searching I finally stumbled upon this beauty from Brandy Melville which never seems to let me down with basics. I also resurrected these MIA fringe sandals that I couldn’t resist bringing out on this sunny day in So Cal.

A little blog post during a day out for errands and some delicious Crepes. Paired a really old piece with some of my new favorites. My sisters gifted me this corduroy pale pink button up from Madewell a few years back for Christmas and I finally have brought it back to life. I suppose moving into a new apartment has led to me re-discovering a ton of my old clothes and falling in love with them all over again (a very refreshing feeling). This H&M sweater has really been one of my favorite new pieces, everyone should commit to at least one cable knit sweater in their life. Perhaps I was channeling a little bit of Audrey Hepburn this afternoon but hey, I’m not complaining!

I’m in love with these jeans from ASOS. After seeing them on The Native Fox I really loved the fit and color. I’m always hesitant to buy jeans online since I’m not always aware of my sizing (especially UK sizing) but I gave it my best effort and ended up with the perfect soft pair of denim that hugs you in all the right places. Kept it simple with a black tank and my green army button up. Perfect outfit for spiced iced chais, pastries, and a perfect view of the ocean.

I’m so glad overalls have come back into trend, I have had the most difficult time trying to thrift a pair that 1) fit me 2) had the correct wash and 3) wasn’t overtaken by Winnie the Pooh patches. Luckily I stumbled upon PacSuns blowout sale which had these Bullhead denim dungarees on mega sale. I love the dark wash and the baggy bottom half. I’ve really been into this outdoors/workwear look in my outfits. I’m not sure if it’s the new hair or my Timberlands (which I have an unhealthy obsession with) turning me towards this new style…but it’s probably both. Happy Monday!

Lush desert landscapes, color pops of lush green foliage, cascading palm trees rustling with the dry breeze; this is the picturesque scene of what I have come to love about Palm Springs, CA. While I haven’t been for years, I still manage to get that old Hollywood glamour vibe from the surrounding deserted car washes, theaters, and restaurants every time I can visit. These inspirational landmarks have inspired a new collection of eyeglasses & sunglasses by Warby Parker.
There are four frames within the collection that took over a year to design and construct with no two frames exactly the same. I have to say my favorite pair would have to be the Duckworth Painted Desert eyeglass frames. The woodworked texture is phenomenal and the round shape is something I am becoming more and more accustomed to when looking for new eyewear. The Wheeler sunnies in Revolver Black remind me of a smaller version of Celine’s with it’s overly thick black frames. I have been lusting for a pair similar to that of Celine but without the Celine price tag attached and these are the perfect compromise.
What I love most about Warby Parker is their at-home try-on functionality. You can pick 5 pairs of eyeglasses or sunglasses to try on at home 100% free for 5 days! I have always been hesitant to purchase any type of eyewear online without trying on something similar beforehand and Warby’s at-home try-on eliminates all risk. Not to mention the price of frames INCLUDES your prescription lenses. I know, I was just as shocked to find that out as well! Kudos must also go out to their online marketing approach. Their simplistic design almost makes you want to purchase something outright, by far the best website I have yet to visit for trendy eyewear at reasonable prices. For those of you who (like me) want to make your eyewear selection as large as your overflowing shoe collection this is the way to go.
View some additional shots from the Warby Parker Palm Canyon Collection below and be sure to visit their website here for more information! I will be sending off for my 5 day try-ons ASAP.
Had the perfect weather on Saturday for big coats and little skirts. I have gradually been transitioning my closet into basic pieces that will stand the test of time. After going through a ton of old clothes from high school/college I have realized that just because you have space for things doesn’t always mean you should keep them. Decided to play down the shortness of the skirt with a baggy t-shirt and keep my legs looking lengthy with these heeled boots. My name is Stephanie and I have a Zara addiction.

So as you might have already guessed…I chopped off all my hair! I feel lucky to be one of those individuals who isn’t super attached to my hair. I’m constantly bored with my cuts so going short just seemed the right move, it’s a vicious cycle. Either way I really like it and hopefully it will reflect well in my style.
Just a quick post today, I received this jacket for Christmas after almost making the purchase a few months back but turning back on it. So glad my mom kept it in mind for me! I am obsessed with leather jackets and the green just really seems to pop for fall/winter. What you can’t see in this picture is the back of the jacket which sits higher up on your back and crosses over. Will definitely be posting more of this jacket when the time comes considering we were losing light quickly today! I also grabbed these boots from Zara with the gift card Nick got me for Christmas. Although they are a size too big they are incredibly comfortable and hits in the perfect spot to wear with mini dresses this spring!

I finally found the perfect lingerie style dress at H&M right before Christmas and just had to have it. What you can’t see is the lace accents on the top of the dress but I wanted to show it’s versatility with layering. I threw on my UNIF shredded shredded sweater over it and voila, you have some edgy fun.
I also found this amazing lightweight speckled blazer at the thrift store during my last visit. I must say for $10 it doesn’t disappoint.

I wanted to share with you guys a little NYE inspiration since I know it is quickly approaching for all of us. Now normally we all run to sparkly skirts, dresses, or even cropped tops but for myself I thought hey why not change it up. I bought this flirty little romper a few months back and of course I haven’t had anywhere to wear it. So to give it more of a Hollywood Glam look I threw on my faux fur collar (which by the way was an amazing investment) and a little brown belt.
Of course I also had to add a little something black so I paired the romper with some black accessories. The main one being this chic Oil Slick Envelope Clutch by Winky Designs. What I love most about the clutch is that it includes a really thin chain that allows you to make it into a cross body. If you’re like me, you won’t be able to keep a purse under your arm or in your hands for an entire night.
