Concrete Jungle - Styling a Varsity Jacket!

I knew that I wanted a bomber jacket or varsity jacket as soon as I saw Eva Chen sporting one on her Instagram at the Warby Parker x Elle Ping Pong tourney. Now I just want my last name on the back with an upside down cross or something super edgy like that (sarcasm...sort of).
When I saw this jacket on Missguided, it had to be mine. But as soon as I received it I was at a loss on how to style it! I immediately hit the hashtags, but I still wanted to be true to my personal style...I knew I could rock a button down underneath and go for a dapper darling look, but it wasn't quite right. Seeing that this romper was such a big hit at LuckyFABB I figured it might work. I tried these items on together and it was a perfect match. This thick chain necklace was the perfect edgy and urban piece to tie the whole look together, now all I needed was all white Vans Skate-Hi's. 
My boyfriend has a very similar jacket, maybe if I can convince him I can do a his and her's post! We tend to unintentionally match all of the time anyways....

Over y'all

overall style
 Photos by Scott Borrero
Overalls, so practical it's a wonder they ever went out of style! This weekend I found out that they're perfect for biking around the city,  I finally could ride freely without a purse or backpack holding me back! The pockets released me from the chain of my purse. Down the hills I sped, care free and feeling like a child again. Whoever thought adulthood just meant the burden of a bag! Or maybe I am just more of a tomboy beneath the surface than I ever thought...

My first time on TV - Repping LE TOTE!

san francisco style blog

Last week I was whisked away to Atlanta, Georgia to be on the CBS46 morning show! It was such an experience both good and bad. Being in the south made me miss home very much...I haven't seen my parents in over a year! Being so close yet so far was pretty difficult for me! So I got as much sweet tea in as possible, okay I'm joking, but I really did drink a lot of sweet tea. Which I then regretted later as I got food poisoning on the plane ride home. Right after I left my phone in a cab!

Here's what I wore on my big debut, plus my makeup, and the video clip from the show! I feel so awkward posting a selfie on here but I guess I already lost all respect when I asked a stranger to take the photo above. Oh the woes of being a fashion blogger.
I was worried about wearing a crop top on the news, but paired with a high rise midi skirt from LE TOTE, I felt like it was both playful but professional. The pointed pumps really sealed the deal taking this look from youthful to refined! Couldn't forget a shade of coral lipstick either, it's just perfect for Spring!

How To Wear Tropical Prints for Spring!

I am just about dying to move to LA just so I can wear boho clothes and dresses all of the time. I miss being able so show some skin! Plus we all know I need the color. Here's a look featuring more pieces from the Vanessa Mooney sample sale and a perfectly printed Crossroads Trading Co dress! 
The trick to tropical prints this season and for Spring '14 is keep it simple. Wear nude sandals, stacked bracelets,  and layered necklaces for a tropi-cool look. When I saw this dress I knew I had to have it, not only does it tickle my tropical fancy, the print is simple enough that it doesn't overwhelm the senses. Trust me, if you've been following my blog since my summers spent in Florida, you know my obsession with anything Hawaiian print - this dress is just the grown up version of Florida me.

Feeling Boho in Los Angeles - Feat. Vanessa Mooney and GypsyWarrior

festival style

This is so belated - I mean so belated. But per usual everything was so crazy busy in the LT office this week. I was sent to Atlanta to talk about LE TOTE on TV...get ready for my outfit post from that - as soon as I retrieve the photos from my lost iPhone :/
Here's a bohemian look that I wore in LA a couple of weeks ago. I was channeling my inner Coachella festival style, because if you can't be there, why not pretend? I stopped by the Vanessa Mooney and For Love and Lemons sample sale and snagged some amazing VM pieces featured in this look! I was sadly too late for the For Love and Lemons clothes, it was all purchased, there was apparently a line around the block when the sale first started!

#EffingObsessing Emoji Loafers, Fun Hats, and Current/Elliott Overalls

I'm sorry I've been away all week! Excuses are lame but it's been busy, we were shooting LE TOTE's newest lookbook and I was in LA for LuckyFABB. Here's what's been on my mind the past few days...

Oh  my god - but seriously shoes!

These emoji loafers from modaoperandi.com would go perfectly in my collection along side my Y.R.U FUQ loafers. Plus a pair of knee high heeled gladiator sandals? Can anyone say Summer? I have a serious obsession with shoes lately, it's like my twenties turned me into a serial Carrie Bradshaw.  Check my favorites out - these are only a few!

Hot shoe trends

Three utterly perfect overall outfits! 

Someone help me...I need all of these pieces, stat. 

After attending LuckyFABB and seeing two ladies rocking their oversized overalls I was absolutely inspired. I know this trend well but seeing how flawlessly these girls pulled it off made me go mad with excitement. Plus my second obsession with hats pairs nicely with the other killer shoes in this Polyvore board. The BCBG Kitty Straw Hat and the Orlando Palacios' Navy Chapeau (inspired by Natalie Suarez from Natalie Off Duty) are my favs. Like I seriously effing need them.

#EffingObsessing White Hair, Boho Style, Hats, and more!

 I'm obsessing over some things, my desktop is overflowing, my boyfriends inbox is full of stupid crap like, "What do you think of white hair, what if I got this tattoo, oh my god look at these hats, can we take photos this weekend...and this list goes on. It's a wonder he's still dating me. So instead of continuing to bother him I want to know what you think!
