This cardigan has already turned into my workhorse sweater for this holiday season. I love the festive vibe of the fair isle pattern. It has a wintery, snow look to it; and since it is a combination of neutral hues, it is easy to create multiple outfits around it. You can see my holiday capsule wardrobe here.

I wore this outfit the other day when my kids had a teacher-in-service day. I took them out for brunch, and then we walked around downtown Campbell and looked at the boutiques. It was a great outfit for feeling the holiday spirit, while still offering a little fall vibe.

Puff sleeves and cropped wide leg jeans for fall 2019

“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’

Have you tried the wide leg, cropped pant trend this fall season? If so, what do you think?

Sweater weather and fabulous boots

Hello sweater weather! It’s finally cooled off here in the San Francisco Bay Area, and it feels so good! I love getting cozy in a soft sweater, and wearing a fabulous pair of boots.

These boots are soooo amazing! Of course, as I write this, I realize you can’t really see them. They are hidden by my bootcut jeans. What you can see is the stamped croc pattern which is golden on black leather. It’s about as fabulous as stamped croc can get; at least in my closet! What you cannot see is the top of the booties which offer a western style, cowgirl boot top. They are wide, curved and amazing. You can see them online here. Next time I will make sure I wear them with a skirt, and take a close-up photo of the boots to show you!

This is a great, late fall look for cool, casual days. If the morning fog burns off, and temperatures rise, the sweater can easily come off. It’s all about layers this time of year! It can be fifty degrees one day, then eighty degrees the next. The weather is always confusing itself during the fall season!
