The Christmas Shorts…

photo 3

Merry Christmas, everyone!  I wish I had a great story about these shorts, like maybe that they’re vintage Missoni, passed down from generation to generation, and I wear them every Christmas or something.  Nope.  Not the case.  They’re Trina Turk, and I simply found them on sale at Nordstrom, and decided they were the coolest dressy shorts I’d ever seen, and I had to have them.  The waistband and front pocket lining is a faux-leather embossed chevron print, too.   Such a gorgeous detail!  And they’re still a pretty great Missoni knock-off, don’t you think?

I paired them with the Jimmy Choo OTK ‘Gypsy’ boots (last seen here), but I’m already dreaming of pairing them with my Kiki ballet flats from J.Crew for a more conservative work look, and then also with my super rad Acne Pistol ankle boots, for an edgier look.  Both with and without black tights…

The shorts are on sale now… try them out with your wardrobe, you won’t be sorry!

Sunny Monday

Yesterday was such a crazy weather day — 81 degrees in December!  No need for a sweater or jacket, it was pure bliss.  Christmas is right around the corner, hope you are all getting your shopping done!  This comfy outfit got me through the day, with easy-to-slip-on-and-off Rag & Bone Harrow booties, and my new favorite Chanel aviators (last seen here).  And of course, some plaid, since it’s everywhere right now!

Happy Holidays!

En-trenched in the holiday spirit

Today is a fun-filled day of holiday shopping, and I have to admit, I’m feeling lazy, so I used the oldest trick in the book: throw on a classic khaki belted trench, and you have instant chic!

This one is a little bit shorter in length, a little flirtier, belted nice and tight to create that ladylike flare.  I also can’t stop wearing these fab Jean-Michel Cazabat pumps, they are a ridiculously gorgeous Marant knockoff, and yet strangely comfortable.  You will be seeing these beauties quite often 😉

Wishing you all luck as you conquer the crowds this weekend to get your shopping done, too!

Yup. Valentino.

photo-2I’ve had a pair of Valentino Rockstud kitten heels for awhile now, the black patent with nude leather trim, you know the ones?  But I was craving another pair.  Something more fun, more edgy.  I saw the leopard rockstuds on presale at Saks, and I waited patiently for them to arrive… six months later.  It was torture!

But now I’m having so much fun pairing them with just about everything… skirts, skinnies, leather, denim, etc.

This is also the first photo “shoot” with my best friend of 15 years, when I was visiting her for Thanksgiving and just knew I had to start this fashion blog.  She told me to stop dreaming, go put on one of my outfit obsessions, and to get my fanny outside so we could start documenting it and making it a reality!

And she was right.  She always is.  Cynthia is an amazing attorney, but she also makes a pretty freakin’ amazing fashion photographer, don’t you think?!?!

There is no one like your bestie to tell you to “suck it in, your stomach looks weird”.  And it’s not even offensive… it’s the person who knows you best, and wants you to look and feel your best 🙂

So, I hope you like the little journey we took in these gorgeous Valentinos… there is more to come!  Stay tuned!
