Destroyed Denim

Hinge Army Jacket (runs big, get a size down and it will still be baggy), J.Brand Destroyed DenimH&M Sleeveless Blouse (sold out online, similar here and here)Rag & Bone Harrow BootiesRebecca Minkoff Quilted Crossbody BagPrada Cat Eye Sunglasses,Banana Republic Bracelet (similar), Hermes H Bracelet, J.Crew B&W Bangle, Gorjana Super Star Necklace

After seeing my buddy Natalie rocking these J Brand destroyed jeans I promptly added them to my shopping basket. They're sort of everything I love in a jean- dark, skinny and destroyed. I'm also partial to J Brand because of how they fit me. So ya, it was sort of a no-brainer to order them and when they arrived, I was really excited.

You know I love me an all black look so I paired them with a sleeveless black blouse and black booties. I'm also addicted to this army jacket (pretty much haven't worn any other jackets since I got it) so it was a natural fit. Casual and put together with an edge, just the way I like it.

Indian Summer in San Francisco

Prada Cat Eye Sunglasses, Helmut Lang Sweatshirt Jacket, Velvet Racerback Tank (old but similar on sale here), 
Abercrombie & Fitch Shorts (I cut these from an old pair of jeans, similar styles on sale here and here), 
Steve Madden Booties (old but two options under $150 here and here),

Ah yes, it's another Indian Summer in San Francisco- it's 80 degrees in October. I'm not complaining, I love summer! Just like last year, I'm loving rocking cutoffs and booties for the warmer temps on the weekends. This is a look I wore this weekend to check out the Blue Angels airshow. It was a little cool in the shade so I grabbed my new Helmut Lang sweater jacket (last seen here) and called it a day. Bring on the warm weather SF!

Everlasting Love

A few weeks ago, I shared my everlasting love for New Balance trainers. I gathered some of my favorite styles and showed how some fab ladies were rocking them. Well, what sort of blogger would I be if I didn't show you how I styled them too?

The perk of shooting with a friend- lots of laughs!

My favorite way to rock the New Balance trainers is with jeans and a t-shirt. But of course it's not that simple. Choose the wrong jeans and t-shirt and things can get reallll frumpy real quick. The key is sleek skinny jeans and a more polished t-shirt. To class things up even more, add a classic jacket or coat, like this Burberry trench. The look ends up being effortlessly polished, not to mention incredibly comfortable.

Ray Ban Aviators, Burberry Trench (major steal here), Madewell Pocket Tee, BDG Denim (similar here),
New Balance Classic Trainers, Prada Bag, Adriana Orsini Earrings, HRH Bracelet (similar here, here and here)

So what do you think of the trainer trend? Will you be rocking it this fall?

Leopard and Lavender

Ray Ban Aviators, JCrew Blouse, Madewell Skinny Coated Moto JeansSteven Leopard Flats,
Prada Bag,
Banana Republic (similar and on sale!) and Hermes Bracelets

When my leopard flats went kaput around this time last year, I was devasted. Okay, that may be a little dramatic, but for a girl who wears a LOT of black and white, my leopard flats were my saving grace for a pop of pattern and fun. I'd been on the hunt for a replacement pair, even did a post on the matter, but nothing was knocking my socks off. Luckily my perseverance paid off and, after almost a year of searching, these Steven leopard flats came home with me.


Now, just to really go wild, I paired my new leopard flats with this lavender blouse from J.Crew. As I just mentioned, my comfort zone is black and white, but when I saw this blouse, I knew it needed to be mine. The color was just too pretty to pass up!
