Friday Chic

Sometimes it just feels awesome to throw your hair in a pony tail, slip on a sweatshirt and jet out the door! This "Friday Chic" graphic hoodie is perfect for such occasions. It's super cute and I can see it quickly becoming my Friday uniform for fall 2015.

The jeans and hoodie combo was so laid back that it felt only natural to finish it off with my black and gold backpack from Target and my beloved black lambskin Chanel espadrilles. The hoodie really says it all because this outfit, even though totally casual, is effortlessly chic. In my book it is the perfect friday outfit for fall 2015.

I was so thrilled when I finally found these black Chanel espadrilles in my size! I called just about every store in California and they were all on back order. Then I lucked out on my trip to New York last winter when I found them at Bergdorf Goodman's. There was one pair left in my size and I about jumped for joy! There's nothing quite like Chanel and these Chanel espadrilles makes me smile every time I slip them on.

I also have an unhealthy obsession with ripped jeans. I swear 90% of my jeans look like they've been through the shredder. This particular pair I scored from the Joe's Jeans outlet at the Camarillo Premium Outlets. That outlet mall is quite spectacular! We paid $5 for a coupon book which took an additional $40 off these jeans, on top of the in store discounts that already applied! I love designer jeans but I hate paying full retail... this was a win, win!

What I'm Wearing

Grey Friday Chic Hoodie Sweatshirt- Glam Envy
Ripped High-Water Jeans- Joe's Jeans
Black Lambskin Espadrilles- Chanel
Black Backpack with Gold Hardware- Target

A Fall Fashion Dream

I feel like I've fallen into a fluffy white cloud dreamland where I'm wearing a sexy, comfy & affordable fall outfit with my four-legged bestie, Lucky the Frenchie. This complete fall look can be found on AmiClubwear.com. I will put direct links at the bottom for you all!

Fall fashion is sometimes lost on Californians because we don't experience "real" seasons. I personally love the "always sunny" weather and could never imagine living anywhere else. I love to visit places with actual seasons, like New York but I appreciate being able to wear a dress in October, thank you very much! If you are somewhere in the world with typically chilly fall weather you can easily adapt this outfit to suit your needs.

This long sleeved dress is made of super soft cotton and is incredibly comfortable. Being that the material is light weight, I added a faux fur vest for additional warmth. If there is one thing I know about Fall Fashion it is: layers, layers, layers! Did I mention layers? Fall mornings and evenings are typically chilly but that midday sun can be a scorcher, which is why being able to shed or add a layer is so key.

The latest Fall Footwear Trend is cut-out boots and tall gladiator style heels that resemble cutout boots. Both styles require a nice pedicure and are bursting with major wow-factor. I've worn these beige beauties out a few times now and I'm glad that everyone else seems to love them as much as I do. I have received compliments from both men and women. What I love most about these gladiator high heels is that they are exceptionally comfortable. Beauty is pain- but not in this case.

The colors in this fall outfit are soft and muted which adds to it's elegance. Solid colors are very much on-trend lately but can sometimes feel bland. To avoid a routine solid color look there is marbling in the grey dress and faux fur vest. This slight color variation adds texture and dimension for a classy and easy-on-the-eyes finish.

What I'm Wearing

Grey Long Sleeve Dress- AmiClubwear
Faux Fur Vest- AmiClubwear
Beige Gladiator Heels- AmiClubwear

The best part about this outfit is that the entire look was just a little bit over $50! Plus each item will pair well with others and add versatility to your closet.

Kim Kardashian Pencil Skirt

This grey pencil skirt, the shining star of this outfit, has been on my fashion list for quite some time now. I literally jotted down "Kim Kardashian Pencil Skirt" on my wishlist but was having a hard time coming by it. I kept seeing pictures of Kim running around town in these long, fitted and sexy pencil skirts but I couldn't find them anywhere. Finally, I was at the mall and this ruched pencil skirt was in the window! I popped into that Charlotte Russe store so fast and frantically that the sales associate seemed taken back by my enthusiasm. I bought this perfect little pencil skirt instantly, without even trying it on. I left the mall feeling like I had just accomplished something great and I felt even better when I got home and crossed "Kim Kardashian Pencil Skirt" off of my fashion wishlist. Plus, just as I had imagined, it fit like a glove!


If there is one thing I have taken from Kim Kardashian's style it is that simplicity is elegant and timeless. I have been obsessing over all the form fitting pencil skirts and crop top outfits that Kim wears on a regular basis. This clothing combo looks fabulous on all body types and is the sophisticated type of sexy that is suitable for a wide array of age groups. As I get older I struggle with wanting to look sexy yet age appropriate. Kim Kardashian has mastered this.

Kim Kardashian has also inspired me to wear more solid colors. I feel like I've graduated from youthful or even juvenile prints to classic and chic solids. If you take notice, Kim Kardashian doesn't wear a whole lot of prints these days. She's often seen in monochrome from head to toe. While I love a monochromatic outfit, I also love color which is why I had fun with the red details in this look.

As you may know, the cause for my recent red obsession has stemmed from my beautiful new Louis Vuitton Estrella bag. It was love at first sight when I saw this cherry red beauty in the Louis Vuitton boutique. Since then, I have been collecting red shoes and clothing to match.

What I'm Wearing

Red Spaghetti Strap Top- Forever 21
Grey Kim Kardashian Pencil Skirt- Charlotte Russe
Red High Heels- AmiClubwear
Red Estrella Bag- Louis Vuitton
Red & Gold Bracelet- I'm Haute
Gold Necklace- The Icing
