I wore this outfit on my last day in New York for fashion week. I am not sure why, but I felt really tall in this outfit. Maybe it was the comfortable yet dreamlike feel of the skirt, or these incredibly comfortable Joie heeled booties. Whatever it was, wherever the vibe came from, I felt much taller than my 5’4″ frame. Love that!

As someone who is on the short side, I always revel in the moment when I feel tall. Feeling tall does not come often, so when it does, I love it! I am quite certain I will wear this outfit a lot this fall season; after all, it makes me feel tall! I am also looking forward to wearing this sweater with jeans on casual days. I would also like to find a long sleeve top to wear with this skirt for cooler days in November and December. 

Do you have an outfit or piece of clothing which makes you feel taller?

Silver and black

The weather has warmed up a little bit here in the San Francisco Bay Area which has allowed me to dress lighter than last week and enjoy a few rays of sunshine. Over the weekend I felt like wearing silver and black when spending time with my family and enjoying holiday activities with the kids. The studded sweater I wore was warm and cozy without being too heavy, which was perfect for the sixty degree weather we enjoyed. I am very thankful I found this sweater on sale at the BCBG store at Santana Row in San Jose!

I am also in love with these silver jeans from the Gap. They are comfortable and I was able to buy them in ankle length. Since I am only 5’4″ the ankle length is perfect. When I purchase regular length jeans or pants I always have to hem them or roll them up. These jeans are an easy way to wear the metallic trend this season, and into spring 2014! I am looking forward to pairing them with other colors both casually and dressy.

Have you been wearing the metallic trend this season? If so, what is your favorite metallic hue?

Jigsaw London dress for fall

Here it is! The fabulous dress I picked out during my visit to the Jigsaw London San Francisco shop last week. I adored the entire collection in the store and wished I could bring home all three of the dresses I tried on, but this one was the winner! I wore this dress to my cousin’s wedding in Sonoma. It was perfect. The long sleeves kept the crisp, evening fog from giving me a chill and the dress was easy to dance the night away in! Love that!

The print was also a hit with my family! They loved it; and it also happens to be an exclusive print designed especially for Jigsaw London! I love exclusivity!

I love the high quality of Jigsaw London’s clothing, comfortable fabrics and flattering cuts. It is my new favorite store! What are your favorite pieces from Jigsaw London? To view the collection, please visit Jigsaw-London.com.
