I love spring!  It’s a time of renewal and freshness and possibilities.  The colors, the smells and the crisp air turning warm are all signs of spring.  I personally love pastels and florals which are a sure sign of spring but I love the earthy-ness that is spring as well.  I chose to use these colors to convey that spring is more than just flowers and baby blue.  This is my definition of a laid back outfit; which in my case means causal, cute and trendy. I am all about the mix and match looks lately. In this outfit I’mmixing up the textures (knit cargo and lace) a bit to give this cutesy look a little edge.  Because I love them so, I’ve added one of my go to vintage Dooney and Bourke purses; similar vintage bags can be found on eBay, the link can be found below.

Sweater Layers 12.15.14

I can’t really complain about the cold here is San Diego, but as we start to go into our 3 weeks of “winter”, it’s time to layer up! The best thing about sweater layers is how comfortable you’ll be (not to mention how stylish this trend is). So let me show you how I layer it up!

Sass in a Red Midi Skirt 11.24.14

No big deal or anything, I just wear skirts all year round. I guess Fall in San Diego makes that easy. Sadly this look is not easy to mimic, but I promise the similar pieces (the red midi skirt is my favorite) linked below are just as cute and stylish! PS this is another one of my vintage Dooney and Bourkes which I found on eBay; there is also a link below in case you want to see what vintage goods you can find.stripes4 stripes12stripes10stripes9stripes8stripes5stripes2 stripes3TOP: Forever 21 (similar)
