Closet Wish List: Club Monaco Renay Pant

Club Monaco Renay Pant

During a recent shopping trip with my favorite gal, Luci, I popped into Club Monaco and tried on these gorgeous Renay pants. Available in quite a few colors, they fit similar to my J.Crew cafe capri’s and might be a good work alternative. Have any of you tried on these babies? I might just have to give them a go!

Mixing Animal Prints & Larger Than Life Hair

Hello lion hair, Batman! My hair is getting seriously thick and curly. I’m secretly obsessed with it but boyfriend thinks it’s time for a trim. In other news, this is so the traditional SF evening outfit. Read: it’s freezing and i’m wearing cashmere in July.

Even though it’s freezing out at nights, I try and keep things a little interesting by mixing animal print patterns (always in the same color family) and wearing my favorite designer flats.

Oh, and how amazing is this tassel! I finally dressed up my keys (mainly so my boyfriend would stop mixing ours up) and ordered this keychain from Etsy.

Thanks so much for reading! And if anyone knows of any amazing hairdressers to tame this mane in the SF Bay Area, please comment below!

Denim on Denim on Denim

Gap jacket (ancient, similar here), J.Crew chambray, Paige jeans, Ann Taylor flats, H&M necklace (old, similar), Prada sunglasses

Denim on denim… on denim! Crazy, I know. I had an urge a few weeks back to wear all of these pieces and decided to make a few tweaks in order to wear them together, in a flattering way. I opted for straight leg jeans (in lieu of skinny or flare) to keep proportions even on the botton and buttoned the two front buttons of the jacket for shape.

Apologies for wearing these sunglasses in literally every post. I’m so obsessed! They are so perfect worn with everything that I can’t seem to let them go.

For added interest with this outfit I rolled my sleeves and added a bold gold necklace to draw the eye upward. I opted for basic makeup but a bold lip to keep the attention up top.

In other news, i’m thinking of selling a few pieces from my wardrobe including these flats. Would anyone be interested in purchasing? I want to gauge what you all think before I post them on Pose or sell them here. Let me know in the comments below!

Flattering Workout Clothing

Under Armour top (similar) and pants (similar), New Balance shoes, Prada sunglasses

With the warm weather approaching, I have been doing my best to workout more. I love short skirts and arm-bearing tops during Summer months and I always feel better in both when i’ve at least been working out. I absolutely hate looking gross and disheveled at the gym, or worse, pregnant in a huge shirt, so I take some care in choosing what I wear. Most importantly, my pants have to have a few basic features to help my bottom half look as flattering as possible.

I opt for bottoms with some detail (fun colors, etc) and tops that have a built in sports bra for extra support, and side color blocking to slim. I’m not too particular about the sleeve length but for those that are, this and this are great basics.

However, my single important requirement is a thick waistband. Nothing bothers me more than a thin waistband digging into my love handles or making my belly pour over when doing sit ups. A thick waistband sucks everything in and also helps with the lovehandle situation.

What are your “requirements” when looking for great workout clothing?
