Lady Like

Sweater c/o Awear, Skirt TopShop, Belt Forever 21(no longer online but love this heart one), Heels Moschino, Purse Miu Miu, Sunglasses Dior, Nails c/o Kate Spade NY

I bought this skirt at TopShop because it reminded me of this Elizabeth and James skirt (now on sale) that I wanted really bad, but was out of my price range. I love the fullness of the skirt and how lady like I feel when I put it on. I felt it only necessary to add some pink and tiny gold bows (on my belt and on my heels) for that extra girly charm.

How-To: Top Knot

Step 1: Part hair down the middle and gather at base of neck
Step 2: Pull hair into a high ponytail, leaving the part
Step 3: Hold base of ponytail with one hand a twist the ponytail with the other hand

Step 4: Once the ponytail is twisted, start to wrap around into a bun
Step 5. Secure with a hair tie

Step 6. Pull a few loose hairs down for a laid-back look

I wear my hair like this multiple times throughout the week when I’m
too lazy to do anything else. It’s quick, simple and easy and can be
worn up high or at the base of the neck as well.

Fall Colors

Blouse Madewell, Shorts UO, Scarf c/o Awear, Sunglasses Ray Ban, Purse c/o Rebecca Minkoff, Cuff H&M, Heels Banana Republic

Yesterday was one of warmest, prettiest days in SF. It felt weird bringing shorts back out in October, but I paired them with some of my favorite fall colors. Thomas and I started out our day by heading to the bookstore where I picked up “The Paris Wife” to read in my spare time. What are some books you’re reading?
