If there’s anything that makes me feel a little bit tough, it’s an all-black outfit complete with aviators and a puffer vest. Done deal for a Tuesday. Have a great week!
I wore this outfit on Sunday to brunch and a photo session with some of my favorite blogger babes. We had so much fun discovering this old loading dock and messing around with our cameras. I wanted to be comfy yet chic and spent a good 15 minutes staring at my closet unsure of what to wear. Whenever i’m in this situation my default is always a dress of some kind. This old J.Crew shift has served me well through countless seasons and when paired with this equally cheery vest, it transitions perfectly into cooler weather.
Fun fact: I shrunk this dress in the dryer a few months ago. I love it so much that I opt to pair it with 100% opaque tights and boots to still be able to wear it.
I love that the inside of this hood also has contrasting stripes. Fun, but unintentional! Because I know this exact dress is so old, here are a few other options that i’m loving (and seriously considering picking up to replace this old one i’ve got).
As I mentioned yesterday, it has been raining non-stop in San Francisco, so my shoe options are limited. I’ve been reworking a bunch of older items and experimenting with pattern mixing even more. This giraffe print skirt has become a neutral in my closet because of it’s classic color palette, and this waterproof striped trench has been worth it’s cost ten times over for it’s versatility. I’m so glad I picked it up way back when.
Other amazing striped trench coats can be found here. It really is one of my most complimented wardrobe staples.
It has been pouring rain for the last 3 days in San Francisco which has resulted in my Hunter boots getting some heavy rotation, and increased layering. I love putting unexpected pieces together and adore how this faux fur vest looks with this more polished blazer. The polka dot dress adds some fun pattern mixing and the boots tone down the trendiness.
The one benefit of this weather (aside from the natural benefits, of course)? My hair adores humidity! These curls are aux-natural and i’m obsessed with the lack of heat styling that’s necessary.
My dress and faux fur vest are from last season, but shop a few of this season’s options here:
