The more I look at these photos, the more witchy my outfit looks. This black maxi dress with swiss dots lace panels and a fishtail hem is an old favorite of mine. This time I paired it with a hooded knit top that is more like a cape because there aren't really sleeves but ties around in the back instead, a fedora hat, and these gorgeous studded sandals. I finished the look with some amazing jewelry... an eland horn cuff by Psyche Jewelry and a stack of mesh classic and mesh color block bracelets by Holst + Lee. On a different note, I am so glad we spring forwarded today! Now, I have more light to take photos with!
Denim on denim with a splash of pastel makes the perfect transitioning-into-Spring look! I don't typically wear alot of denim, but when I do, I like to make it a little more feminine. I am wearing a swiss dots chambray shirt paired with my favorite high rise Levi's that have a subtle ombre wash. I soften up this denim on denim look by adding some pastels into the mix with a mint bouclé cocoon coat, blush crossbody bag, and strappy studded heels.
I can't believe it is March already! Here is a simple casual look from the weekend, I actually wore this for a walk on the wharf and to grocery shopping. Yes, I am one of those people who feel the need to wear makeup and have a decent outfit at all times, even if it's just picking up some milk and eggs from the store! Silly, I know. Anyways, one can never go wrong with some chunky knit and leather pants! I also love my new perforated flats from Sole Society, the black trimmed details make them extra sleek!
It is time to bring out all the florals because spring is just around the corner! I adore this playsuit from Ark, the long sleeves are especially perfect during this transitional season and not to mention the sugar plum color is simply gorgeous! I paired it with my new custom made (makes me feel fancy) wide brim fedora hat by Katarina Hats. This hat... where do I even begin? I knew I wanted a light gray hat but I didn't care for a typical black ribbon band, so I asked for dark gray. Katarina suggested a light beige band instead and I absolutely love how it turned out! It is beautifully constructed and of the greatest quality. I couldn't ask for a better hat! I kept the rest of the accessories neutral with a taupe lambskin clutch with lovely little silver stars by Lauren Merkin and these suede flats by Sole Society that have adorable bows on the back!
By the way, in case you are wondering, I am holding my hat in most of these shots because it was super windy and it kept wanting to fly away!
I sure love to sport some bold red lips but I don't typically wear a red piece of garment. These pants, however, changed my mind. They are perfectly high waisted, comfortably silky, and totally versatile. If these pants were black, my outfit would be boring; but because they are red, my outfit becomes much more exciting. I paired them with a mixed stripes top, a peplum blazer, and classic black pumps. I dressed up the look a bit with this stunning necklace from Lulu Frost's new Neon Baroque collection and a gorgeous two tone leather clutch by Lauren Merkin. This look definitely drew some attention in this casual beach town of Santa Cruz, but hey who cares?
