OOTD: Tunic Tuesday!

31 Jul

 

Tory Burch ‘Iveta’ tunic via Nordstrom Rack, Express white skinnies, gold ring and earrings c/o Grandma’s closet.

This Tory Burch tunic was originally over $500, so when I saw it in my size at Nordstrom Rack for just $98 I knew it was the perfect investment piece. It goes perfectly with my fave white skinny jeans, and I know the sequined silk will transition easily into Fall. Even though red is my favorite color, the print is definitely loud and out of my comfort zone, but I’m liking the ikat inspired vibe. Throw in some disco music and I feel like I’ve been transported to the 1970s! In a good way, that is. What do you think? Hope your week is off to a fabulous start!

OOTD: Black and yellow, black and yellow, black and yellow, black and yellow…

24 Jul


Express cardigan (similar Banana Republic), Sugar Lips tank, Pastel yellow F21 skinnies (Only $15.80!!), Fossil belt, Kate Spade bangleMarc Jacobs watch, Sam Edelman sandals.

Post title courtesy of Wiz Khalifa himself. I’m sure this outfit was exactly what he had in my mind when he penned that catchy tune, eh? It was either going to be those lyrics or “And These Are My Banana Pants,” a logical follow-up to my ever popular outfit post These Are My Red Pants. I guess you could say I might have an obsession with colored denim. Oh well… there are worse things to be addicted to, right? Like The Bachelor shopping. Or chocolate. Wait a minute, who said those were bad things?

OOTD: These are my red pants.

12 Jul

 J. Crew Factory denim button down, Fire red skinny jeans via Nordstrom Rack (Fire’s other colors, $42, and similar red Free People, $68), vintage gold Whiting & Davis belt (similar Lilly Pulitzer, $48), monogram necklace (similar), Marc Jacobs watch, Sam Edelman Gigi Sandals in rose gold.

These are my red pants. They also happen to be my favorite pants. I paired them with a denim button down and vintage gold chain mail belt for a little twist on the red/white/blue look. In my opinion, red/denim/gold is just as patriotic and a tad more flattering for us pale folk. This is just one of those simple outfits that always looks flattering and makes me feel great. Definitely a great go-to whenever I need a confidence boost! Do you have an outfit that always makes you feel more confident than usual? How do you dress when you need to brighten your mood?

P.S. Completely coincidentally to choosing my fave outfit, it just happened to also be a great hair day. That always helps too… Funny how these things work out when you least expect it :)

OOTD: Ruffles and Bows

10 Jul


Old H&M peach top (BCBG similar), Rock & Republic skinnies via Off Saks Fifth (Levi’s similar), monogram necklace (similar), Marc Jacobs watch, black Kate Spade bangle. Not pictured: Sam Edelman Gigi Sandals.

I bought this top on a random H&M spree while I was interning in L.A. last summer, back before coral became the new peach. I absolutely adore this sweet combination of soft ruffles paired with a demure bow, and I love how well it colorblocks with black. It really makes my favorite Kate Spade bangle pop :) My hair was being very unruly so I put it up in a messy bun and showcased a new pair of pearl studs. Sweet and classy, just like I like it.

How do you like it?

P.S. Why all the “similar” clothing options? Because just like a “normal person,” when I buy clothing I like I tend to wear it for longer than just one season. Sometimes I’m unable to link to the exact product I’m wearing because it simply isn’t available anymore. But I always look for items that are not only similar, but also affordable so you can try to recreate the style for yourself. Cheers all around!

OOTD: earning my stripes

6 Jul


Joe’s Jeans via Loehmann’s,  Sugar Lips tank, Madewell cardigan (current version),  monogram necklace (similar), Marc Jacobs watch, Sam Edelman sandals.

Because of the midweek holiday, work is a bit more on the casual side this week. I absolutely adore this striped cardi, which is not only ultra soft, but the very first thing I ever purchased from Madewell when it first opened in Austin when I was in high school. I scored a great deal on these Joe’s Jeans (Women’s Petite Bootcut “The Provocateur” in Betty) at Loehmann’s when I was in L.A. last summer, and am definitely planning a trip back ASAP. For the 4th, my lovely parents flew in from Texas and are here to spend a week with me. It was a great time just spending a low key day with them :) I can’t believe I go back to school in 4 weeks– this summer is flying!! What did you do for the holiday?

P.S. The exact pair of Joe’s Jeans I’m wearing (which might actually be my favorite ever in the history of the planet in both fit and feel) is currently on sale at Nordstrom’s for under $100!! I may just have to snag another pair!!! #sorrynotsorry

OOTD: mellow yellow

3 Jul


Juicy Couture sundress, Cynthia Rowley tote, Sam Edelman sandalsKate Spade bangle,  Marc Jacobs watch.

This yellow floral sundress is the perfect distraction from a rather slow week at work! I also especially adore this gold Cynthia Rowley tote which I scored an awesome deal on at T.J. Maxx over spring break. It always makes getting ready for work exciting :) The neighbors and their kids were out on the balcony again, so I chickened out and attempted some indoor footage. Not too terrible if I do say so myself… What are you doing for the holiday week??

OOTD: Maxin’ out.

27 Jun

J. Crew outlet denim shirt (Madewell version), F21 Maxi from last season ( F21 similar), Kate Spade bangle, monogram necklace (similar), Marc Jacobs watch. Not pictured: Sam Edelman sandals.

I was having a bad hair day so I pulled it up, and then the sun was in my eyes when I was taking this picture so it looks like I’m angrily gritting my teeth. But aside from those things, it was an otherwise fabulous day! I took a lunch trip to Sephora where I went to town with my latest VIB coupon, and I downloaded instagram and foursquare last night so I’ve been hsving a ball with those. After work I met some school friends at an amazing foodie/local market restaurant called Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing in Venice. I gorged myself on avocado smoked trout, gourmet biscuits with honey butter and apricot preserves, quail with corncake, and an amazing pasta with lamb bolognese– not to mention the fabulous wine selection where I sampled a pinot grigio, rose, and gruner (which was new to me but delicious!)

How was your day?

OOTD: High-waisting time

26 Jun

 
Express cardigan (similar Banana Republic), Sugar Lips tank, BCBGeneration skirt (last season, but now they have a shorts version!), Kate Spade bangle, monogram necklace (similar), Marc Jacobs watch. Not pictured: Sam Edelman sandals.

Black on black on black… Well, more like black on black on crimson. Taking pictures of myself is still a work in progress, but I’m also learning to play with color correction and that’s going okay too :) I didn’t sleep much last night and thus was in a bit of an uncreative fashion rut when I got dressed for my internship this morning, but I think it turned out alright nonetheless! One thing I love about this outfit is the pretty cut out triangles on the bottom of the skirt. It’s the little things after all, right?

Outfit post: VIP abandoned warehouse raves.

26 Mar

As the boy and I were traipsing around downtown Austin enjoying all there was to see of the South by Southwest music/film/interactive festival, we were lucky enough to win VIP tickets to an abandoned warehouse party in the colorful neighborhood of East 5th street to see Diplo, ?uestlove, A-Track, AraabMuzik and a few other dubsteps artists! It was a great surprise and definitely one of the highlights of the week. Luckily B was kind enough to indulge me in a few outfit photos along the way :)

Sugar lips tank (similar), red Fire skinny jeans via Nordstrom Rack (Marc Jacobs makes a gorgeous version), Sam Edelman sandals, Lulu*s necklace (similar), and a vintage [thanks mom] chain and quilted purse (similar). For jewelry I opted for a sparkly gold bangle (like this affordable snag from House of Harlow) and a dainty pearl and gold ring.

How to wear mint skinny jeans! (OOTD)

20 Feb

I had the most fabulous weekend hanging out with my mom, shopping, eating, and baking. I am also so thankful that many of my friends and sisters (and mommy!) were able to come see me perform in my play. Here is what I wore to a Sunday morning brunch at my sorority house for all my sisters and our wonderful mothers :)

I may or may not be completely obsessed with these amazing mint-colored skinnies by “Wish” that I found at Nordstrom Rack (for $24!) last weekend. I paired them with a cream BCBG blouse and gold glitter Vince Camuto heels. Plus I threw on some Marc Jacobs sunnies and a Lilly Pultizer cashmere cardy for some attitude. I was a bit tired of the whole sundress thing for brunch. What’s your go to brunch outfit? How do you feel about the colored denim phase? (PS I must divulge that these same exact jeans in “watermelon” red might be on their way to me in the mail at this precise moment…)
