If you follow me on social media, you will know that I got my hair done this past weekend!  I was very excited to go out and take some photos.  I think I am going to write a post about my hair this week… stay tuned!  Now, I have to tell you, it is VERY difficult for me to not wear all black outfits all.the.time.  I tried my best with this photoshoot, which is where the grey skinny jeans comes in.  I wanted so badly to pair this navy blouse with some black skinnies but nope… couldn’t do it.  It’s Spring and everyone is wearing light colored bottoms.  Of course, this wouldn’t be me if I couldn’t have a bit of black in my outfit.  That’s where the black Alexander Wang shoes I told you about a few posts ago comes in.  Funny thing is that I couldn’t find anything to wear with them before and now I have everything to wear with them!

When I was looking for the bottom half of my outfit, I also realized that I do not own a pair of white jeans.  That would have been the PERFECT combination for this sunny Spring outfit.  Navy top, white bottoms and some nude colored shoes.  I will have to be on the lookout for the perfect pair.  If you have a great pair of skinny white jeans that you love, leave me a comment below and tell me where you got them!  I have a tendency to not wear much white.  I am not that clumsy of a person, but if I am wearing white – you can bet I will spill something on it… hence, the all black all the time.

Now on to my navy blouse.  I love that it’s flowy, hangs a bit lower in the back, and has slits on the sides.  It’s the perfect top to throw on and go off to work or dinner.   Only bad thing is that it wrinkles very easily, so I have to make sure that I iron it before I wear it and that I am careful when I sit in a car or chair.  I got it at Madewell on sale a few months ago so I have to say it was a pretty great find.  They had a 30% off their Spring essentials this weekend.  I hope you were able to score a deal at one of my favorite stores!

Hope everyone had a great weekend.  I got to get my hair done, hung out with friends, and saw my family.  I have to say it was a pretty good one!  Until next time…

I’m currently up in Oakland/Berkeley for work, but luckily I had this post ready!  As much of a scaredy cat I am about being in a place I am not familiar with (weird since I have been traveling for work for the last 3 years) and homeless people … I am starting to enjoy traveling and exploring different places.  I will definitely have to come back up with my camera to take some photos … it’s beautiful up here!!!

On to my outfit – did a photo shoot with my good friend Crystal (from Stylis Events).  She has some skills with the camera and was able to take some pretty great shots. I learned a few things about changing the settings on my camera that I didn’t know how to use before.  It was a very educational day!  We decided to go to the San Gabriel Mission and made it just in time for “magic hour.” For those of you who don’t know what that is, it’s the few hours right before sundown.  That’s when the lighting outside is just perfect!

My sweater is actually a long tunic that came with a slip underneath it to wear as a dress.  It was quite a find at the Johnny Was store since much of what they have is very boho chic.  I removed the slip and threw on some jeans for a great date night outfit.  I just got some new nude Tory Burch flats and wanted to try them out too.  You can spot them in a few of the photos. Ever since I discovered nude flats go with pretty much EVERYTHING – all black, brown, jeans, every color of the rainbow – I have been obsessed in finding nude shoes.  I scored these nude jeweled flats at the Nordstrom Rack at a pretty awesome price that I couldn’t pass up!

If there’s one thing you got from this post, it’s go out and buy yourself some nude shoes!  Oh and magic hour is the best for selfies….

Sunday Sunset

I had to work this holiday weekend.  When I left the work event, the sun was starting to set and it was so beautiful.  The light that was caught in the pictures is unbelievable – no filter could ever recreate it.

Top: Madewell (Similar) | Pants: Anthropologie (Similar) | Shoes: Kate Spade | Handbag: Chanel | Sunglasses: Bottega Veneta | Watch: Michael Kors | Bracelet: David Yurman

This is my usual work attire – black skinny ankle work pants and a blouse.  I’m a Southern California girl at heart.  I don’t like to layer and feel constricted so I’m enjoying the warm weather right now.  I love this blouse I got from Madewell.  I can wear it for work or with some ripped jeans for date night.  The back is a little longer than the front which is probably what drew me to this blouse to begin with.  I feel like I hardly ever wear any tops that just go straight across on the bottom anymore.  When I’m out of the office at work events, I’m usually talking to a lot of students and hate leaving my handbag sitting around unattended or weighing me down.  The Chanel Wallet on a Chain (or any crossbody for that matter) works because I almost forget it’s there, yet it holds everything I need.  Plus, since it has that gold chain on the strap it adds something to my outfit, I don’t need to wear a necklace – two birds, one stone.

Hope everyone had a wonderful President’s Day/Valentine’s Day weekend!

All Black

So I guess this will be my first official post!  Today was beautiful in Southern California!  The sun was shining and there was not a cloud in the sky.  I went to do my first photoshoot for this blog.  I needed an “About Me” photo so off we went.  Turned out to be more of an #ootd photoshoot but that’s okay.  Practice makes perfect right?
