SHOPBOP SALE FAVORITES!
I was recently asked to do another wardrobe essentials post and I thought it would be perfect to do one focusing on Fall/Winter closet essentials. Basically creating a Fall Capsule Wardrobe that includes all the top trends and pieces you’ll need to create countless looks for the season! In my look tonight I am styling three major trends right now, can you spot them? Ok, I’ll tell you! Leopard, Cutout Sweaters and Western Wear!
These trends have transitioned from Spring/Fall and show no signs of slowing down. About this outfit specifically, a leopard midi skirt is a MUST have! I styled it with Thanksgiving dinner in mind but you could easily throw on a sweatshirt or sweater to dress it down. And do you ladies remember this insanely good cutout sweater from my Instastories? Well now it also come in this burgundy! Already in my cart.
Ok let me know what you guys think about this Fall Guide and make sure to also use it to add to your wishlist for Black Friday Sales!
Believe it or not, I used to live in Alaska so I know how important it is to stay warm but how challenging it can be to NOT look frumpy! I have rounded up the chicest coats so that you look as chic covered up as you do when warm indoors. Style Tip: Make sure your coat proportions/length are appropriate for your body! I aim for all my coats to hit me either mid thigh or right below the knee. Otherwise they just swallow you up and add weight to your figure.
I don’t know about you but I cannot get enough leopard in my closet for fall! To say I’m obsessed is an understatement! Leopard just adds chicness and so much interest to your looks!
Style Tip: Treat leopard like a neutral because it literally goes with everything!!!
Velvet is so luxurious for this time of year and it now comes in so many luxe pieces. Dresses, blazers, skirts bombers. Velvet used to be reserved for only nightime but now it easily styles during the day by just keeping things more casual pairing with sneakers, boots or leather jackets.
It’s the holidays and you need to step it up with a tuxedo blazer! I love these elevated styles dressed up or down and they are just the perfect piece for those cocktail events that you don’t have an ideal coat to top off your look when you happen to get cold I like i do, throw on the tuxedo blazer! I just bought this one and I’m obsessed with the navy twist. So updated!
The plaid blazer is not going anywhere for fall! If you’ve already picked this must have staple then for the cooler months try layering with a chic fitted turtleneck like the one I’m wearing. Or layer a hoodie sweatshirt and a maxi skirt if you feel more edgy. I also love a plaid blazer belted with a wide belt, so chic and would be perfect over one of your summer maxi dresses for an evening out.
The perfect switch for fall from your summer dresses and maxis is the sweater dress. It’s an effortless wear anywhere look. Style with OTK boots and layer a moto jacket and you’re good to go! I like to stick to grey or black so that I can wear earth tones and my blacks/greys too.
This one is kind of a no brainer but I think it’s great to invest in some hi and low price point knits. Your high will be the one’s you’ll have for a lifetime and will be SO special. This is where I invest in brands like Ganni, Acne Studios and A.L.C; these are forever knits that will look amazing season after season. I usually invest in 1-2 every year and then stock up on lower price point knits as my basic knits in core wardrobe colors. For these high street I usually stock up from MANGO (newest obsession) and H&M, you can’t beat their prices. I pick up V neck sweaters in greys, camels and rich seasonal colors that are on trend in the moment. Another must have knit is a fitted wear with everything turtleneck like the one I’m wearing in this look! So perfect and the cutout detail makes it special. This turtleneck looks chic with jeans as well as with midi skirts for chic holiday parties. LOVE!
There are so many great boot trends right now that it was hard to narrow this category down. I think the best to do is for you to decide which trend you feel most comfortable with or if you’re like me buy all 3 trends! :) The western boot is hot right now and looks great with everything but I get it, it’s not for everyone. Cone heeled boots are such a hip boot trend and really updates the block heel. OTK boots are a no brainer necessary for your closet BUT how about a thigh high boot? These look so good with skirts or skinny jeans! So modern and sleek. The last boot trend that I am loving is the biker buckle boot. These look great with feminine skirts and with jeans. These are perfect for being practical, these can easily be worn in everyday life.
An army jacket is such a great neutral jacket that looks perfect over just about anything! Seriously, try throwing one over a slip dress. Instant cool girl! Over your sweaters or tees. Wrapped around your waist over floral dresses. Toss it over your mini skirts with boots. For real, the surplus army jacket will be one piece you reach for over and over.

Ok guys, better late then never! You guys have been asking for Nordstrom Anniversary Sale content so I finally pulled it together to get it to you! Truth be told I haven't shared much from the Nordstrom Sale because there wasn't much I loved or thought was worth running to the store for! But when I took a closer look I discovered some gems I LOVE and think you will too! Pieces that are worth the investment for fall and that you won't be able to get for a better price later. The great thing about the Nordy's sale is that it's mostly exclusive fall pieces created just for Nordstrom! It is all the trends that you will see this Fall discounted to buy now and wear later! During this sale every year I focus on investment brands that normally never go on sale and of course Beauty!
Today I am styling this gorgeous Asymmetric A.L.C Sweater with these killer L'Agence coated skinny jeans! First of all A.L.C is one of my favorite brands and their knits are so gorgeous and such amazing quality. I have a couple of their sweaters and love, they're lifetime sweaters... This burnt red sweater is really specially with its dramatic bell sleeves and the unique off shoulder detail. This sweater can be worn layered with a lace bralette or even a sheer turtleneck when it get's cooler. You could also layer an oversized jean jacket and have the chic sleeves tucked out for a really modern vibe.
Now let's talk these skinnies. You girls know I love anything leather or leather look-a-like! Ha! When I saw these L'agence coated skinnies I knew I had to have them. I have other coated jeans but I really like that these are a high rise. Much more slimming them my others and I loved the raw hem. Coated skinnies are such a Fall/Winter staple.. They look great with chunky knits, with cozy coats and with OTK boots!
Both of these pieces are on sale over 30-40% off and will go back to full price this Sunday! Yes ladies, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale ENDS this SUNDAY August 5th! Like I said earlier I found a ton of great investment pieces that you should totally snatch up. Scroll down to see all my picks! Happy Shopping!
NORDSTROM ANNIVERSARY SALE PICKS!
Every single one of these beauty items are things I use and love! Actually except the Nurse Jamie, that one I just bought because i've heard great things!
My first love will always be denim! It's my most reached for item in my closet as you probably know if you've been following me for a while. Right now, I have a special addiction to Levis jeans. But not just any Levis, it's got to be that elusive vintage, perfect fitting pair! Yep you know the pair I'm talking about, the ones you see every blogger styling but when you ask where to buy they say "sorry they're vintage"! So upsetting to hit a fashion dead end! Ok so here's my secret tip to the perfect vintage Levi's, eBay! Did you know they have a huge selection of Levis?! Including these vintage Levis Shop/Redone jeans that I picked up last week for under $100! If you know denim, you know that Levis Redone jeans are SO expensive when you buy them directly, we are talking $250-375 for a pair of the super exclusive reconstructed denim. Ouch! So when I discovered that ebay has a huge selection of both vintage/used and new Levis, I felt I hit the fashion jackpot and had to share!
eBay can feel overwhelming so here are a few tips to make navigating the site and finding that perfect pair of Levis easier!
Be very specific with your search words... ie Vintage Levis, Vintage Distressed Levis, Levis Redone Jeans, Vintage Levis Size 25. You get the idea.
You can either bid on an item or if the price is right make your purchase immediately by clicking Buy It Now. I would save the items you are interested in and at the END of your search make your final decision! I made the mistake of once bidding on 3 pairs of sunglasses thinking I wouldn't win them all or that I could retract my bid later and NOPE! I own 3 new pairs of Ray Ban's Ha! :)
Negotiate your price! If the seller is open to bidding, make them and offer and you never know they might accept.
Feel free to ask for more pics or any additional questions from the seller.
Check out eBay's Daily Deals section! I've been happily surprised to find really cool stuff there. :)
Ok now it's your turn give me your tips for shopping Ebay!
Thank you eBay for sponsoring this post!

This is when I invest in luxury bags, shoes and the perfect leather jackets because these are items that generally never go on sale! I have gone through all my favorite sites and found you some killer pieces that will last you for years!
Happy shopping loves!
THE BEST SPRING SALES!!
My best girlfriend Erica has these booties and they are insane! I love ALL things Alexander Wang and these sandals are so killer. Backpacks are a major trend for summer and this Chloe one is darling! I have a similar studded bag to this and I wear it ALL the time, example here and here. Obsessed with these slides, perfect spring summer essential. This is the quintessential moto jacket! LOVE!
I have been pinning over these sandals for ever and when I saw them on sale I had to have them! They arrive today, eek! I have the black version of this bag and it is the perfect every day carry all and the color is gorge. This is the next size up from the Prada bag pictured above and would be a perfect everyday bag. This Chloe bag was on my wish list and still is in this limited edition grey color. Have I mentioned I'm obsessed with all things PVC, love these. Size up a half size.
These boots are incredible, love the studs! I have this bag and have NEVER seen it go on sale! You can see how I styled it here. This is such a great bag for resort or streetstyle and love it as a great alternative to brown for a neutral. OMG I have this one piece swimsuit and it is the most flattering ever and can be worn as a bodysuit! Remember it from my Tulum trip here?!
I LOVE Shopping from Bergdorf's because you pay no tax if you live in California and they do free shipping so your are really getting a huge discount! These boots have been on my dream list forever! How gorge is this Prada bag? I'm obsessed with white accessories and this bag is such a great piece! Everyone needs a killer pair of platforms, think for those wide legs pants that are always too long or for elegant dresses. These Jimmy Choo sandals are gorge and would make your legs look mile long! This blush moto from one of my favorite designers Nour Hammour is gorgeous! You seen me style their jackets often and i adore them all, from Paris with love. OMG these Prada Embellished kitten heels are everything and super on trend right now!
I love this stunning color Chloe Bag, I have the pink and love it! You can wear it 3 different ways! This Valentino is a major dream bag. Love these sandals, great for summer dresses. Ok, this metallic bag is a dream and will go with everything! Luxe sneakers are a real thing that makes your look so effortless and chic, these Golden Goose Sneaks will go with everything!
Hi guys! Today i want to talk to you about your Spring Must-Have List! I'm sure you are seeing certain trend popping up and thinking to yourself, what is really essential or useful for that matter. Well these are a few items that are timeless, wearable for everyone and are trending hot!
This look consists of just those spring pieces! I started the look with this killer Marissa Webb off the shoulder vest that is a modern girls option for polish and off the shoulder in these warm months. I love the versatility of this vest and plan on wearing it with a tank, tee or even turtleneck in the cooler months. I'm obsessed with all this olive/camo green so this was love at first site! Off the shoulder tops are such a perfect transition into Spring and are so flattering because they highlight the most delicate part of the body the shoulders and clavicle.
Next up a light wash pair of jeans. I picked up these Skinny High Rise Levis because I wanted a cleaner more relaxed fit of light wash from my usually distressed and skinny go to denim. I love these and have barely taken them off since they arrived. A light wash denim is a perfect pairing to all your bright summer shades and prints while still looking awesome with black and your core wardrobe colors.
Then there is the trend that keeps on giving and is going nowhere, white shoes! White shoes are essential in these vacation months but if you ask me they are a must all year! I opted for a sleek pump but these white PVC sandals are insane and already in my cart, the perfect addition right now.
Lastly but for sure not least, YOU NEED a basket resort bag! Basket, woven and resort style bags are all the rage and literally make all your looks instantly feel like spring! Just the right touch of casual vacation style from anywhere! I picked up this Staub bucket bag before I went to Tulum and I swear i have used it SO much. It looks great with dresses, denim, casual shorts and I've even worn in to the beach with just a casual tunic. It comes in a ton of colors and I also linked some more basket bags that are so cool and on my must have list!
Ok, now you are ready for spring and as always I linked everything below and also some things I've got my eye on.

LIGHT WASH DENIM
I am so excited to share this post for a couple of reasons. To start we shot this special post in our home, something that I have wanted to do for quite some time but just couldn't figure out the ideal way to do it.
The second reason is that Mother's Day is around the corner and I have found some awesome gift ideas for all the mamas in your life! So when a partnership for Mother's Day with JCPenney came along I knew that was the perfect chance to shoot at home!
Last week my baby girl Harlow and I headed to JCPenney to pick out some Mother's Day gifts for me and for the special mamas in our lives. I'll link exactly what we picked up and some other fun gift options below.
JCPenney is a one stop destination to find something special for every kind of mom! The outdoorsy mom, the mom that loves to decorate her home, the mom that loves to entertain, the athletic mama... I'm definitely the mama that likes her quiet coffee time, sleeps in late on Sundays, and likes to wear chic sleepwear while doing it! ;) .
When is comes to my sleepwear I like something that looks sophisticated and that I can mix into my already existing sleepwear. This Kimono Robe ticks those boxes for me, its bold print adds just the right amount of cool and easily layers over everything. You could even wear it over a casual tank and jeans! Ha I won't tell anyone you're wearing your jammies out. ;). Underneath I am wearing the most comfortable PJ Shorts and Top I have ever worn! I also picked up the PJ pants for when things get colder. I love that I can mix and match a variety of prints and styles from this brand. The days of ugly mismatched Tshirts to sleep are over!
I've rounded up some of my favorite JCPenney Mother's Day gifts for all your favorite mamas in your life!
And from my family to yours, happiest Mother's Day ladies! Cheers to doing it all and having the most important job we'll ever have, mamas!
GIFTS FOR MOM
One of the questions I most get asked is "What are my closet staples? "Basics that I can mix into everything?" "Can you suggest great basic pieces?" Today I'm sharing just that! The pieces that i believe you should have within your wardrobe that you can build countless outfits with. These pieces are timeless and can be found at any price point and literally are pieces you see me style daily! I have created this list for you to cherry pick what your are missing and of course given you options a every price. Let me know what you think and if you'd like me to do more posts like this in the future! Cheers love and happy Monday!
Closet Staples and Must Have Basics:
I know you're skeptical but these are an item that you can just as easily dress down with sneakers and a sweatshirt for everyday as well as upgrade to a chic cocktail hour look with pumps, a camisole and a blazer! There are awesome faux leather alternatives for a fraction of the price that look just as chic as the real deal! I own these and these and love them both! They are both on SALE and I have my normal size! If you are looking to invest I LOVE these and these! I have some similar with the zipper ankle detail that I bought at least 8 years ago and they have totally paid off and I still wear them regularly. And these from HILO the Label are the ones I am wearing in the photo above! Love the relaxed boyfriend fit!
The Perfect White Tee
You guys the options are endless with a great white T shirt! Dressed up or down, layered a peeking out under a great sweater. Under a strapless or summer dress for winter layering months! With simple denim shorts and sandals in the summer and on and on. The most important thing to look for is fit and quality of fabric. If both of these things are there the drape will be perfect an you will have and love forever. My favorite brand from Tees is Current Elliot! Their fit and quality can't be beat and every year I invest in a couple new ones and wear the hell out of them all year! My other favorites are these! They are literally the softest fabric and have the best V neckline I've found, not to mention the price is awesome! I've had my grey so long it's actually got holes but I actually love that!
A great trench coat will transition from season to season and instantly give any look a Parisian chicness that is so effortless! I love this one and this one! Over denim, leather or over a cocktail dress for when you just don't know what to top you night out look with.
I seriously wear this oversized jean jacket ALL the time as you've noticed! It's exactly what I reach for when I need to add a casualness to my looks. It seamlessly makes dress and skirt combos wearable for daytime and breaks up color.
This one essential I could not live without! I have sooo many and love them ALL! Ha! My essential is a black one, if you want to edge it ip even more go with studs that I'm obsessed with right now! If you are looking to shake things up for spring I'd suggest a white or light blush like this one! A great moto jacket instantly gives you a little boost of confidence and makes you feel a little more badass! ;)
Over the Knee Boots
Over the knee boots are such chic piece that will serve you for years. They make your legs look miles long and instantly slim your figure! You can style over skinny jeans, with mini skirts, with dresses.... Start with a black pair, you'll get the most use out of them.
Black Suede Pump
There is nothing that looks more polished, elegant and instantly chic then a great black suede pump. You can wear from office to a night out! I say this is an investment item, spend the money and you'll love the look more. I look for a heel that is further back on the shoe to create more length and slimming effect on my legs. Gianvito Rossi makes my all time favorite pumps, seriously the best!! I own 3-4 pairs. AND I found them here at a fraction of the price! I order all of mine here, free shipping and the bets price I have found! Hands down the most gorgeous pump out there! Also for a better price these are great!
The Slip Dress
I love the ease of a slip dress. There's something so confident about it and you can do so much with one. You can belt a slip dress for a more figure hugging look. You can top with a biker or jean jacket depending on if it's a night out or a day at the park. You can layer a tank, tee or even a turtleneck underneath for the cooler months. Or you can throw on some cool ripped jean underneath like you've seen me do here.
This is a must have item in my opinion because I found myself styling them with everything this last year and I don't think they are going anywhere! These are my fave and I wore them all day long during FW, super comfortable!
I love to layer all year long and tanks are the best way to do so without adding any bulk to your looks. I LOVE these and have them in every color. The neck line is super flattering an look awesome with layered jewelry. I also couldn't live without my muscle tanks that I have in every color! I wear these sooo often!
If you don't already your need to run not walk to get a great blazer! This is such a core piece of your wardrobe that will last you for years and years! They will take you from corporate job to date night to cocktails! Such an important piece to own. Currently I am loving a more relaxed boyfriend fit and this loose fit gives you so many more styling options! I would suggest to invest in a black blazer and on a plaid blazer because that is this years styling essential!
Denim, Denim, Denim!
I live for my denim and it is seriously the one item I could NEVER do without! I could go on and on about the denim styles that you need but to keep things simple I'd say you need the styles. A skinny, a slim boyfriend and a bell bottom trouser style! These styles will dress up or down and will cover ANY look you are trying to create! I love my jeans to have a detail of interest whether it be a raw hem or distressing to keep things more edgy! If I had to choose brand style in each of these categories I would say for Skinnies; my Rocket Skinnies are by far my most loved! SO flattering with their high rise and legs for days! I also love the fit of my AGolde and my Levi's for an awesome price too! For a slim boyfriend my Redone Jeans are amazing and so are these Levis and at a fraction of the price! I have also recently fallen in love with these. They are relaxed enough to pass for a boyfriend and the raw amazing hem really makes them epic! Lastly for my wide leg trouser I love these! So soft and just look soooo cool! I wear these a lot more in the summer time!
Statement Clutch or Bag
I love to add a little fun to my outfits with a great bag! There are so many unique spring bags that give a standout moment to your daytime as well as your more tailored evening looks! I'm thinking of buying this one that I have been coveting for ever. How chic with jeans and a simple Tee! I bought this one for my Tulum trip and got sooo many compliments/questions about it!
