This. Sweater. It has literally been on my body morning, noon and night since I got it. The way this came to be is actually even better. StyleMint sent me an email a few weeks ago saying I had credits that were going to expire. Having never shopped any of the Mint brands I perused the website and decided to take a chance on this sweater, something I wouldn’t have normally spent my money on. Seriously, it has proven to be the most versatile thing in my wardrobe. I wear it on weekends over baggy t-shirts, for work over skinny jeans with boots and a nice top, or for nights out under a tighter-fitting blouse.

I was originally hesitant about the extreme drape but find that when belted it has a cool, casual vibe. Even when left open I love to wear tighter fitting stuff and let the sweater just be a baggy top, almost like an overcoat.

I know that not everyone is into buying from the Mint brands so here are some others that look very similar. P.S. yes, i’m wearing sandals in February. San Francisco loves me. Thank you weather gods!

J.Crew Fluted Skirt and Mixed Winter Prints

J.Crew T-shirt, Scarf (similar), Skirt and Boots (this year’s)

So I have a J.Crew addiction. Sue me. Also, Cesar loves this outfit. #Winner. But in all seriousness, I didn’t notice how much this skirt highlights my recent pooch as it does in these photos. In real life I feel much more comfortable wearing tops that tuck into this skirt but these pictures make me look preggo (not preggo, for reference). Regardless, I really like this outfit and appreciate the European feel it has.

Each of these pieces have been true workhorses for me since purchased. This skirt has been styled countless ways and this scarf makes the perfect pattern mix basic. J.Crew boots have also surprised me. While not the most comfortable shoes for long-time wear, they are sleek and serve the purpose for nights out and work days.

What are your thoughts on this skirt? Does anyone else own it?

All Black Sunday

Andrew Marc Jacket (shop more recent versions below), J.Crew shell, Pixie pants, Boots. Ray Ban sunglasses, Louis Vuitton Speedy

I wore this outfit to a party at a coworker’s house on Sunday and felt pretty great. I wanted to be comfortable but still look chic and my go-to to accomplish this is always all black. My pixie pants served me well and these boots are just comfortable enough for all-day wear while still looking put together.

In other news, Cesar and I had an amazing Valentine’s Day. He sent me gorgeous red tulips and cooked me a steak dinner. We capped off the evening binge watching House of Cards. Ob. Sessed.

My jacket from Andrew Marc above is one of the most versatile items in my wardrobe. It happens to be from 2 seasons ago but here are a few updated options i’m loving:

Cold Weather Layering

Club Monaco vest (shop similar options below), Custom jacket from Hong Kong (details here), Madewell dress (shop similar styles below), SPANX tights, Hunter Huntress boots

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.
