Club Monaco - I literally want EVERYTHING in this store. Sadly, it's a little out of my price range.

Sooo...I guess you can tell that I didn't get an outfit photo in yesterday. I'm still working on getting motivated about my blog. But I'm hoping a little site update will get me excited again. I'm making the switch to wordpress.org (yikes!). I just decided that after a couple years of blogging I need to finally own my content. So I'm hoping the transition is smooth! 

Now onto Flashback Fashion Fridays! This is probably the only co-ord set that I own. I love that the top and skirt are different but still similar enough to wear together. A lot of times I wear them separately though. See more of this look here!

Ruffle Tank + Denim

Denim on Denim, Ruffle Tank, Lace Up Flats
Leather Clutch, W&G clutch, Light Wash Denim Jacket
Leather Clutch, Walter and George
Walter and George Clutch, Ripped Skinny Jeans, Denim Jacket
Nude Lace Up Flats, Gap Lace Up Flats
Drop Waist Ruffle Tank, Layered Spring Outfit

Well, the weather is hitting almost 90 degrees here in LA and while I appreciate warmer weather this just seem a little too warm for February. In my head I'm thinking about layers, boots and sweaters but then I walk outside and it feels like summer. It makes it really hard to put together a summer outfit when I'm still in the winter mood. 

So I decided to take one of my winter outfits and make it warm weather appropriate. All I did was take off the sweater and switch out my tote bag for a clutch (and add a denim jacket for air conditioned rooms). It's amazing how switching out one or two items in an outfit can make it look a lot different. 

Outfit Details:
H&M Denim Jacket (old)(similar)
Ruffle Tank via Nordstrom (comes in more colors!)
Gap Lace Up Flats (very similar)
Loft Sunglasses
Gorjana Earrings

Stop and smell the ROSES


I'm not a big fan of Valentine's Day. Bright red and pink decorations, heart shapes everywhere - it's just not my thing. I'm also not a huge fan of sweets (gasp!) so all of the chocolates and sugar just don't do it for me. But one thing I can get behind is flowers and Valentine's Day reminds me of one of my favorite beauty scents - ROSES! 

I feel like it all started with this Thayers Rose Petal Witch Hazel toner. It's one of my favorite beauty products and I use it everyday after washing my face because it gets rid of excess dirt and makeup. I love the light scent and it's very hydrating. Sometimes I don't even need to apply moisturizer afterwards. 

My other favorites include the Rosebud Salve - you can use it on hands, lips and nails! - And this Crabtree & Evelyn hand lotion

I'm a big fan of L'Occitane lotions and scents so I'd love to try the roll-on rose fragrance. Diptyque candles always smell amazing so I'd love to add this one to my collection. 

And an interesting product I found out about this year is the H2rOse Beverage. Rose water is great for the skin but it also has benefits for the body as well. It helps purify the body and contains essential vitamins. I got a bottle at a Simply Stylist event and I was super intrigued! It comes in 4 different flavors too!

Black and White Loafers

Everlane Loafer, Boyfriend Jeans
Boyfriend Cardigan, Everlane Outfit, Black and White Loafers
Everlane Silk Top, Grey Boyfriend Cardigan
Everlane, Ripped Boyfriend Jeans, Black SIlk Tank
Shein Sunglasses, Gorjana Ear Climbers

I don't know if you guys know this about me but I'm a huge fan of Everlane. I pretty much want everything on their site! My latest addition are these black and white modern point loafers. They sold out really fast but I put myself on the waitlist and around Christmas time they came back in stock in my size! Score! I also love the modern loafers and I think my next purchase will be these in black patent leather. I talked about closet staples and quality over quantity in my last post and I feel like these loafers fit in that category. 

I think this might be my last "cold weather" outfit for awhile. The weather here in SoCal is going back into the 80's the next week or two. I can't say I'm happy about that. I really love fall/winter layers and I'm not ready to say goodbye to them yet!

Outfit Details:
Loft Cardigan (similar)
Madewell Bag via eBay

Camel Blazer

Camel Blazer, Regent Blazer, Menswear Inspired Outfit
J.Crew Camel Blazer, Steve Madden Booties
Skinny Ankle Jeans, Jackson and Hyde Clutch, Tan Booties
J.Crew Blazer, BR Jeans, Cowhide Clutch
Gorjana Ear Climbers, SIlk Neck Scarf

I've had this J.Crew blazer on my wish list for forever! I love blazers because they can be dressed up or down and make any outfit look pulled together. I've had my eye on the Regent Blazer because of the cut and gorgeous camel color. I just always hesitated because of the price - I hardly ever spend $200 of a piece of clothing! But over the Christmas holiday I got it on sale and decided to take the plunge. I know I'll get a ton of use out of it so I feel like that justifies the price. 

I'm trying to transition my closet from a lot of cheap fast fashion pieces to a few high quality items that can be remixed. I would rather spend a little more on classic pieces that last for years instead of buying a lot of inexpensive trendy items that I only keep for a season. This blazer is the start of that transition! 

Outfit Details:
J.Crew Regent Blazer (select colors on sale!)
H&M Pocket Square (as necktie)



Now onto Flashback Fashion Fridays! Here's a look from last February. It's my take on a Valentine's Day inspired outfit. I don't really like bright reds and pinks but I can totally rock blush and lace details. I might have to pull this outfit out again this year!
