 Shorts: Nordstrom // Sweater: Goodwill // Loafers: Poshmark app // Necklace and Sunglasses: Forever21

If you follow me on any social media platforms, you will recognize this outfit from yesterdays New York Times feature, which was so exciting for me being a new blogger and all...so YAY to that!

For this outfit, I tried my hand at a menswear inspired look because it isn't really my style, but I think I will try it more often because I love how this turned out! I call this my "grandpa" sweater, because I actually got it at Goodwill and I just imagine a grandpa reading his newspaper, drinking coffee wearing it- ha! But I love how it worked with my houndstooth print shorts and new loafers!

What is your favorite way to rock a menswear inspired outfit?

Blacks and Blues

Dress: Marshall's // Boots: Guess // Jacket: Target // Necklace and stud bracelet: Poshmark app // Sunglasses: Forever21

Hi loves!
I hope everyone enjoyed their weekends- I sure did! Friday night I went into San Francisco to meet with my friend for drinks and tapas which were amazingggg- if you haven't been to Esperpento in the Mission, I highly recommend it! We ordered some wine and a few plates to share and everything was so flavorful- needless to say we were happy girls! And the rest of the weekend was pretty mellow, filled with a tiny bit of shopping, getting organized, and doing a mountain of laundry.

These pics were taken last week in front of our favorite blue wall across the street from work- isn't the color amazing? Carlina, Maria and myself are so lucky to have a great neighborhood with so many unique backdrops for our photos, but for some reason this blue wall always prevails.

Anyhow, just a simple outfit of leggings, a leopard chiffon dress, some Poshmark accessories, and my fave denim shearling jacket for a nice sunny day. :-) Here's to a great week!

Geek Chic

 Glasses: Republic \\ Top: H&M \\ Blazer: Marshall's \\ Jeans: Macy's \\  Flats: Nordstrom Rack \\ Necklace: Forever21 \\ Bag: Target

One thing I was asked a bunch yesterday was whether or not my glasses were real- and to set the record straight- they are! I usually stay away from such large frames because I am practically legally blind (UGH), which causes these to look extra thick and bottle cap-ish. But I knew I wanted something uber obnoxious and geeky so I went for it, and happen to be in love with them- thickness and all. :-)

I kept the outfit fairly simple with skinny jeans, a fun printed top, blazer and bold necklace to compliment the geek-chic factor with my main accessory of my glasses.

And that's all for today friends- hope you have a lovely day!

Sweater: Old Navy Shoes: Old Navy ($7!) Jeans: Joe's Watch: Michael Kors

I warned you all that I love a good deal, and these shoes were just that! I got these sparkletastic pumps at Old Navy over the weekend for just $7.00- can you believe that?! Needless to say I was a happy girl and couldn't wait to wear them with my also new and $7.00 sweater- Score! 

Is anyone else noticing Old Navy stepping up their style game?

Manic Monday

Top: Target Vest: Old Navy Pin: Vintage Shoes: LYLIF Necklace: Forever 21 Bag: Nordstrom

After the ::tear:: loss of the Niners on Sunday, it didn't make my Monday morning very cheery for me, however I made up for my sadness by piling on accessories to this otherwise casual outfit. Yup, my fave fringed bag, jewelry of chains, friendship bracelets, a turquoise globe ring and even a sparkly little pin to adorn my vest somehow turned my frown upside down!

Here's to a great week!

Casual Friday

Top: Poshmark app Jeans: Joe's (Found for -$10!) Denim Jacket: Target 
Shoes: Jeffrey Campbell (Found for $30!) Sock's: Marshall's Hat: Forever21

As I was getting dressed yesterday, I knew I wanted to wear my new Jeffrey Campbell flats for a comfy Friday outfit. I also just received this FAB vintage top in the mail that I scored on the Poshmark iPhone app, and with the addition of black skinnies. straw hat, and glittery socks this outfit easily came together.

Now, onto an obsession of mine- Poshmark...if you aren't familiar with Poshmark, you need to be! It is the most amazing free iPhone app where you can list pieces of clothing, shoes or accessories that are sitting in your closet not getting any love, snap a photo, list your price and BAM- it is that easy. Seriously! Not only can you list pieces you don't want for some extra cash, you can purchase items from other users that range from accessories, and shoes, to gorgeous designer bags! So, have you downloaded the app yet? :-)

I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend so far- I sure am! Is anyone else suuper insanely excited for the 49er game tomorrow? GO NINERS!!! We need this win, it has been too long since a Super Bowl for us!

Man Repeller

Coat: Asos Top: H&M Pants: Nordstrom Last Chance Shoes: Via Spiga (Found at Last Chance-only $40.00!!) Bangles: Forever21

Found this fuzzy purple coat on Asos and it was one of those things I just had to have...needless to say my boyfriend isn't a fan. You can't win them all though right? My shoes on the other hand are a winner, and I don't know if I love the style more, or the fact I found these babies in perfect condition for $40.00- score! One thing you will learn very quickly about myself is I LOVE a good bargain. 

Happy Thursday!
