Transition an Outfit from Day to Night

Sorry for the grainy pictures ladies, these photos were taken later in the evening right before a night out! If this top and jewelry combo looks familiar it’s because it was in yesterday’s daytime peplum post. After a full day of walking around, I needed to quickly transition my outfit for night. I swapped my jeans for a mini skirt, flats for heels, tied my hair up into a low bun and put on some bright lipstick.

This is my first time wearing a garment over the waistband of this skirt (last styled here) and i’m undecided about how I feel. A few ladies complimented my look on the street but I feel as though it makes me appear a bit pouffy. Thoughts? Have you tried this look?

Also, a video hair tutorial for this look coming soon!

This weekend in SF was absolutely beautiful. The sun was shining and boyfriend and I had zero plans and tons of city to explore. I wanted to wear something that would keep me a little warmer but that definitely had major color. The last time I wore this peplum top it was with basic jeans and I am looooving how the mint color pairs with these maroon/eggplant pants from Ann Taylor.

If you haven’t picked up these pants from Ann Taylor, they are an absolute must in the pearshape world. Seriously, I have them in two colors and I am naturally not one to repeat purchase.

Stay tuned tomorrow for how I quickly turned this outfit into a nighttime ensemble with little effort!

Styling Leggings in Cold Weather

After a glorious couple of days this weekend, Sunday rolled around and it was like we were living in an entirely different city. The temperature dropped so drastically that I found myself pulling out my favorite cold weather leggings, cashmere turtlenecks and boots. I always have a tougher time styling leggings but have found that by following a simple methodology, I always look clean and put together.

1) Pick a blouse-y top. A looser fitting top will help you feel more comfortable as the leggings tend to cut into our stomach area

2) Layer. See point above. Thin layers never hurt

3) Never, ever wear ankle boots. I always opt for knee-high boots when wearing leggings and haven’t yet found a way to wear sandals or ankle boots with them. The higher line allows for the feeling of a cleaner silhouette and avoids truncating the leg line.

On an unrelated note. Welcome to the roof of my building! Our apartment specifically has access to the roof which we use often for entertaining. I hope you enjoy another peak into our place!

Officially 23!

I’m officially 23! Whoa! This past Saturday was my birthday and all I wanted this year was to be very low key with my boyfriend. We spent the weekend eating amazing food, walking around parts of the city we had never seen, visiting the Fort Mason famers market and meeting friends at Off the Grid. I couldn’t have asked for a better weekend, better weather, or a more wonderful city to spend it in.

I wore some variation of this outfit for the majority of the weekend as it was in the low 80’s most of Friday and Saturday. I’m getting more and more comfortable with pegged jeans and find them to be so versatile for Spring/Summer.

Lastly, this lipstick i’m wearing is my new obsession from NARS. The prettiest hot pink color.

Thank you all for your kind birthday wishes and for making me feel even more special!
