One of my favorite pants to sport to work and on the weekends is this J.Crew navy patterned pair. It has a clean, tailored fit that works well with pumps or flats. And, it has an elastic waist! Can’t beat that. For a business casual look, I pair it with a solid silk tank or short sleeve blouse and high heeled pumps. For a more casual look, I pair it with a grey v-neck tee or a longer tunic tank, and espadrilles or metallic sandals. Then, I pile on a bunch of long layered necklaces!

The weather has been dreary lately, so it’s back to jeans and long pants. Boo. Today I layered by black and white text tee from J.Crew with denim and a black blazer from Zara. And topped it off with a pop of suede red pumps. It just made the whole work day more fun!

It feels like Summer in California already! I’ve stored away all my boots and winter scarves, and brought out all my spring dresses and lightweight pants. My closet is usually full of color, but I’ve been gravitating towards lots of black and white prints lately. Here is a new top I just purchased from J.Crew Factory, paired with some boyfriend jeans and black pumps.
One of my favorite things is the world is vintage Chanel jewelry… When I wear the couple vintage Chanel pieces that I own, I often find myself planning the entire outfit around the jewelry! This is just one of those examples – I paired my earrings with a long sleeve leopard dress and burgundy pumps. Feel free to add the black tights, scarf, and layers of sweaters and coats in colder weather.

I love putting outfits together in the morning when I get dressed, but it’s much easier if I’m inspired by the pieces I have hanging in the closet. Sometimes it takes some extra inspiration to bring new life to an existing wardrobe or to help you switch up your regular outfit routine! So I thought that it would be fun to start documenting some of my favorite outfits from my closet, with the hope of helping inspire someone else out there…

Need some arm candy inspiration? Here are six days of ideas for layering bracelets! Depending on my outfit & mood, I love to layer them on. Some of these I’ve picked up at jewelry shows, a couple are from my Mint & Bloom shop, and the others are J.Crew.

Happy Halloween everyone! The kids had their Halloween parade today and we were lucky to just miss the rain….. it started pouring shortly thereafter. We need the rain in California + me and my boots are ready.
