What’s Up Autumn?

Don’t these pants just scream Fall? My sister Annie got them for me from a thrift store in San Fran. They have no tag and look very handmade which is even cooler in my book.  I am loving trousers right now and feel very anxious for Fall to get here so I can bust them out.

Weekend Uniform

Good Morning loves!

I hope you all had a nice weekend. Dapper Fellow and my parents were out of town so I took advantage of my alone time to get a bunch of stuff done. I had a pretty girly Sunday filled with shopping and pampering and feel so prepped and ready for the week! Today’s look is a weekend go-to of mine. The weather has been up and down so layers are a must. I also can’t seem to take off my Gap distressed boyfriend/skinnies lately. halogen cashmere gap boyfriend jeans tracy reese bag stripped equipment blouse

Su Vino, Me Vino

TGIF!!! What a week it has been. I am so exhausted, but also grateful at the same time. We had a record breaking day at work yesterday! Waaaa who!!!! Also, my best friend from LA is coming into town tonight and I can’t wait for some quality BZ time! :) Today’s look is from last weekend when I went wine tasting at Su Vino in Scottsdale.  Stay tuned for Savory Sunday’s where I will share more about this little local gem. :)

Fur Cape Type of Day

Good Morning Loves!

I know we are only in the first week of 2013, but this year has started off so great.  Each year I feel like my resolutions goals are more focused and more attainable and that feels so good.  Dapper Fellow and I have quite the lineup for fun events and trips planned.   So many blessings to be thankful for and so many awesome memories to look forward to!

Today’s outfit is centered around this amaze cape/fur number that my AMAZING sister Norma gave me for Christmas. It is so cozy and perfect for winter days! I realize fur may be something that is a little much for some, but this piece is perfect for that exact person. Subtle and warm, but fashionable! It is perfect for weekend wear!

Oversized Sweater Obsession

I seriously wish I was able to wear more sweaters, hoodies, coats, hats, scarfs and gloves!! But then I remember that snow would be involved and suddenly 80 during the winter never looked so good. :) I got this blanket sweater when I was living in Vancouver for college.  Perfect for this brisk early morning.  Believe it or not I have worn this as a dress before, paired with booties.  I know that may sound silly, but hey! A girl’s gotta get wear outta her sweaters in the desert!

Bell Bottoms Up

Happy Halloween Loves!

I hope you are all being festive, dressing up, and gearing up for candy overhaul.  The 70’s to me were huge in fashion.  Often, I unintentionally find myself channeling an  androgynous look from the 70’s.  (She this one.)  When I purchased these pants I didn’t think I had shoes that were high enough for them.  It turns out I don’t really, but I really like that about them. I paired them with a tan bootie wedge from UO that I got last year.  I am currently crushing on tans, browns, chocolates so much right now.  I decided to mix and match neutrals on top to allow the main focus to be my ballerina tip toe effect.

AVC Jean Advice: It is good to have at least one pair of pants that are longer legged and have a wider bottom flare it really elongates the leg and creates a nice slimming effect.

70’s Inspired

The 70’s may be my favorite decade. The carefree, hippie mentality off LOVING all seems so simple, yet decades later we still struggle with judgement, hostility, closed mindedness and bitterness.  I really feel the way that people dressed in the 70’s is completely on trend to today August 15th 2012.  The bell-bottom jeans, platform shoes, crop tops, cut off shorts, flowy off the shoulder blouses, tie dyed items, fitted blazers, leotards and we cannot forget the innovation of the “wrap dress” by one of my favorite designers Diane von Furstenberg.  Yes it’s true, the 70’s have to be my favorite decade.  :)  These high waisted shorts were pants that I cut and have perfectly frayed over the years.  Levi’s are so classic America.  It took a long time for me to find a pair that fit right, but they have easily become such a summer go-to for me.

Denim Shift Dress

There are a few pieces that are essential in a woman’s wardrobe and a denim shift dress is one of them.  I can’t tell you how much use I have gotten out of this bad boy over the course of it’s year living in my closet.  It is perfect by itself with sandals, with a vest, with boots, with a sweater over it, the list goes on.  I am a huge fan of denim in all forms and find it to be a great staple item in my closet.
