This weekend was rather exciting as I can officially say that I am a graduate student! I had my first day of class this Friday and am happy to say have enjoyed the whole day spent on Saturday reading and doing my assignments. I can’t wait to continue on in this adventure. Graduate school is huge and always has been a dream. I am going to get my M.A in Marriage & Family Therapy. Did you go to graduate school? If so…please leave comments on your experiences and/or tips! Would love to hear them!
This outfit was what I wore for a lunch meeting this weekend. I purchased this sequin sleeve blazer a month or so ago and was very excited to wear it. It’s such a statement piece that I kept the rest of my outfit very simple.
There is something about sequins that just make me feel instantly better. For a meeting (fashion-based), I wore this gold sequined jacket that I had bought nearly three years ago. I kept the rest of my outfit very simple; total black. I did add some red lipstick to give my look a little va-va-voom. I also put my hair in a knot-bun, something I’m not usually one to sport. I’m all curls or straight hair, so testing new ways to “update” my hair is always fun!
I’ve been lusting over so many items from Sway Chic this month that I thought I’d take the time to share. Sway is an affordable and ultra stylish clothing boutique based in Berkley, CA and has expanded to six other locations across California. If you haven’t heard of them, now you have. Their selection online is impeccable, and I hope to travel to their Pasadena store soon! I first need t start saving my pennies!
These are my top picks of items I feel I need. Yes, need. Need and want. The BOLD number are my “I can’t live without”.
Who says you can’t wear white after Labor day? I think that winter whites are lovely…hence my outfit below. I love to wear all white during the winter with neutrals but since it’s been in the 70’s this week in Los Angeles, I felt I might as well start working my Spring wardrobe. I have had this hot pink blazer from Zara for ages and worn it a few times already, but it’s been sitting in my closet the past four months. I can’t say how happy I am to bring it out. Also, this is the first time I have worn my “Lila” color-block pumps from Sole Society. If you don’t know, I’m a Fashion Insider this January and I couldn’t be happier. You can view my looks here, or go onto the Sole Society webpage & see which shoes are my favorite.
Anyhow, this post is probably one of my favorites. I wore my white denim, a white basic t-shirt, & my hot pink blazer. The pink adds a nice pop of color and shoes really give it something extra special. The combination of purple and pink is one of my favorites. Although purple and pink can appear to be a very teenage color combo, this is how I put the two colors together to create a mature yet playful look.

Hello my loves! From now on when I wear an item more than 3 times I will be doing a poll to find out which look is your favorite based on that one item. This time I wore these ShoeMint Blush Suede “Edith” platform three times. Each look was unique with kept with the color scheme; blush tones. For the same shoe, that’s not sold out online, these Steve Madden “Viktoree” are available.

Thanks for voting! You will definitely be seeing more of the shoe too!
My love for sequins I’m sure is very well known. I think a little sparkle can be chic, especially if done right. Today’s outfit was before a late lunch/early dinner. I was wearing this outfit during the day with black ballet flats before I switched to my blush suede pumps from ShoeMint.
I wore these heels because I love the “school girl” vibe they bring to my outfit. A t-shirt & sequin skirt can be very fun for a casual day out (at least in my world!). I love how casual this look can be with ballet flats, or amped up for night with heels.
I hope you enjoy this outfit post!
