One of the runway trends which has inspired my daily outfits is mixing decades. Designers for fall 2019 took inspiration from several decades, two of which were the 80’s and 70’s. These are two decades I am feeling right now, so my fall wardrobe has several pieces inspired by both.

This top has a very 80’s vibe with puff sleeves and a flashy animal print. I originally purchased it to wear to fashion week, but I also knew it would be fun to wear back home too. As you can see, I have already been wearing it! I paired this fun blouse with 70’s style bootcut jeans for a mixed decade look. Overall, it feels more 70’s than 80’s, but it still offers vibes from both decades.

I wore this look last week while exploring downtown Los Gatos with my Mom. Although a Bay Area native, she had never really walked around downtown Los Gatos before! So I took her for a little tour, and treated her to lunch at my favorite Thai restaurant in Silicon Valley, Golden Triangle. Aside from the fabulous interior and beautiful presentation, the food is absolutely delicious! If you are local, be sure to check it out; even my picky children love it!

It was fun showing my Mom around, especially since she has been showing me around for my whole life! It was fun to switch roles for once! I even showed her how to use my little Canon camera so she could snap these photos of my mixed decade look. I think she did pretty well for her first time!
