“These boots were made for walking. . .” well. . .not really. They are comfortable, for high heel boots; but they are not walking shoes, like sneakers. haha That being said, isn’t it fun to quote Nancy Sinatra lyrics now and then? I think so!

I can’t seem to get enough of this black puff sleeve top for fall. It’s turned into my workhorse top of the season. I have been pairing it with different styles of jeans, various booties, and also skirts! It’s black, so it goes with everything. It’s also comfortable, easy to wash and wear, and the puff sleeves are super trendy and fun. Love!

These cropped, wide leg jeans do extend me horizontally on camera, but I tell ya, in person-they do not! It’s so weird how some articles of clothing add weight when photographed, while others do not. I think the high waist, and cropped leg, are what make them add weight in pictures. In person, these jeans don’t do that! So, maybe I just need to stop photographing them, haha! They are super comfortable and really do look nice in person, if you are in the market for cropped, wide leg jeans! I really do recommend this pair; unless you want to snap pictures in them everyday, then maybe forgo the wide leg, cropped look for now. . .just sayin’

Feeling that 70’s vibe

wearing: large gold hoops / puff sleeve blouse (last seen here) / sunglasses / lipstick / belt / jeans / handbag / nail polish / bracelet (old, also love this one) / boots (super comfy!) /

In case you hadn’t noticed, I am obsessed with the 1970s this season. Although the fall 2019 season has trends taking inspiration from multiple decades, there is something about the 1970s which is both nostalgic and comforting; that is drawing me into any trend from the era I can find.

While cropped jeans weren’t really a thing in the 1970s, wide leg jeans were. Therefore, I feel like these jeans can cheat a little bit in a 1970s inspired look.  The fabric is also really soft; which makes these jeans super comfortable. I definitely need to wear them with a heel though, or else the wide leg and cropped silhouette easily adds weight to my 5’4″ frame.

Striped cardigan weather has arrived

wearing: pearl earrings / lipstick / sunglasses / charcoal long sleeve tee / Funky China necklace / striped cardigan sweater / nail polish / flare jeans / Chloe bag / western style boots /

Sweater weather is finally here! Yay!! I met my friend Dawn, from Fashion Should be Fun, last week for lunch, and it was cool enough to cozy up in this stripe cardigan sweater. It was so nice being able to enjoy a fall-like weather pattern while walking around downtown Los Gatos with Dawn.

I picked this sweater up back in July, and I have been patiently waiting for a day when temperatures dropped low enough to wear it. It was worth the wait! It’s not a heavy cardigan, making it perfect for fall. In the winter, it can be warmed up with thicker layers underneath. This long sleeve tee is also lightweight, so it was the perfect combination last week when temperatures were in the high 60’s and low 70’s.

This necklace deserves a shout-out too! I purchased it last spring at the Mustard Festival in Saratoga. They always have really cool, local artists and vendors at the festival. My kids love going every year. Funky China was there selling her handmade, one-of-a-kind pieces. They are made from pieces of old china; which is super cool. Definitely check our her Instagram! I get compliments and questions about it every-time I wear it. It’s a conversation starter; and it’s fun to have something one-of-a-kind!
