Fall Transition

Summer is gone but the sun is still out and the heat is real ( at least in LA) and meanwhile my fall wardrobe is dying to make an appearance! Until we get the complete fall weather, I thought it’d be cool to show how I transition seasons by incorporating summer and fall all in the same mix! I bought this lightweight pastel leather jacket because let’s face it, pastels in the fall are everything. It’s the perfect pop of color to add in with the fall tones! Lightweight culottes are also a favorite. In Los Angeles it’s still hot with a slight breeze, so culottes are perfect for the transition. Zara has so many options of prints, colors and styles that...

East Asian Florals

I'll admit, I'm a sucker for trends and right now East Asian floral prints have arrived. Being heavy into trends brings on its own set of problems beyond just having to keep up. When "special sizing" is needed some times we get left behind however, I had to learn how to shop for specific shoes. Nudes are always amazing because they match with almost everything and when you're keeping up with clothing trends, they make it super easy to pair. Below are two links I found on Nordstrom.com (they're on sale!!!) of similar heels and I kept in mind those of us who prefer extra height and those who don't! Being trendy takes a little more effort for some of us but...
