A rare occasion in weather change in SoCal makes a great occasion to change up your outfit. Anyone who has shopped with me knows that I am a smart bargain shopper. The other day I was running some errands with my boyfriend and we stopped in Target (which is torturous for me because I always end up coming out with a ton of stuff I don’t need). However, I came across this amazing faux leather grey jacket on clearance for – get this – twelve dollars. Obviously I bought it and just told my boyfriend “I’ll just save it for next season”. Little did I know, the very next day it was overcast and raining. For some reason I was in the mood to wear knee highs ( it could have been the fact that I was watching clips from Clueless the night before) so I paired them with a faux leather skirt. The burgundy plaid crop top perfectly ties in with the patten leather Mary Jane’s. My new grey jacket gives the school girl look a little bit more of an edge, and the white faux fur scarf gives it a sense of warmth on a cool day. The Michael Kors jet set backpack is the perfect accessory to complete the outfit. This ready-to-wear look is great for that rare overcast day.
I spent the day yesterday running around the valley with my boyfriend checking out new neighborhoods and new prospects for his Real Estate company. Everyone in southern California knows the iconic Bobs Big Boy, or even if you don’t live in southern California you probably have at least seen Austin Powers. The Bobs closest to my home is in Toluca Lake, but my boyfriend mentions to me “did you know the Bobs in Sun Valley has a bar?” Immediately I’m like, say what? So we head over there for lunch and an afternoon beer. I like to switch up my style day to day, sometimes dressing more menswear and others dressing more feminine. I paired the polka dot skirt (which I also featured in the fall) with a light blue cotton button up to add a more professional on the go approach. The neon pink Enzo Angiolini pumps give this look a pop of color and a little edge ( I mean, who wants to wear black pumps and be boring, right?) My hair is ridiculously long so I chose to wear a high pony tail to keep this look from becoming too busy. If you have short hair, I would say it wouldn’t be a problem. This is the perfect look for a professional on the go.
