Hey Guys!

I missed my Monday post (sad face) – those are the toughest!  I usually take photos on Sunday and after the overly dramatical (i know this is not a word) stress I go through after taking pictures, I am super wiped and want nothing to do with editing!  I wish I was more comfortable in front of the camera because it totally blows taking photos!!!  But I have a new plan for next Monday so that I keep up with my resolution for the year!

I am loving this blue pinstripe skirt from Banana Republic and it is only $13.99 right now!  There are limited sizes so hurry!  I linked another that is just as cute, below, and here is another similar skirt that I love but Zara is not available through the widget I use, so you will only see Zara items linked in the text.  I saw it in store this weekend and it is SO cute!

I am literally bringing platforms back (yeah!).  I have had these Zara platform booties forever, I think like 2005!  I rarely wear them and I decided to bust them out and getting some wear on them.  Obviously, platforms are not a thing this season so I linked other navy blue booties that I think are amazing.  Navy blue is my favorite color but I get a little shy about wearing the color in accessories, which is total nonsense.  Sometimes I get into my little matchy-matchy bubble and forget to experiment.  Things don’t always need to match to look spectacular.

This sweater is only $12.99 but unfortunately you can only buy this color in store.  The black one linked below is definitely a must, though, and for $12.99 I would buy them both!  This is a definite wardrobe staple in black and grey that are perfect to wear alone on warmer days and light enough for layering at night time.  The stitch/weave of it gives it a really unique and interesting feel and it is SO soft!  Warren actually commented on that.  I love when I find great quality pieces like this at a great price point.

I will probably wear this whole ‘fit on date night this weekend.  It’s the perfect mix of cozy with an edge for a night out on the town in the Cali winter.  You can easily transform this into a work outfit by adding some tights and switching up the booties for a non-platform pair or a pair of pumps.  Throw on a pair of sneakers and it is the perf outfit to run errands in or take the kids to school – totally put together and effortless chic!

    Love the booties – Zara is the best. Love the blue ones you linked to as well. And I hate editing photos weather I like them or not!

    I absolutely adore this pencil skirt!! It’s so funny because I was just telling my mom yesterday that I wished I looked better in skirts because there are so many cute ones like this that I love!

    I’ve always been shy to rock the booties with anything except pants. But – you make it look so fabulous that I need to step out of my comfort zone and try it with a skirt.

      Thanks, Karen! This is exactly why I wasn’t wearing them…for like 10 years LOL. I had to step out of my comfort zone as well and now I am loving it!
