Rebecca Minkoff Becky Blazer

Rebecca Minkoff Blazer c/o, Sandro Dress, Zara Pumps, Stella McCartney Bag, Damel x Gorjana Ring, Ray Ban Sunglasses, Benefit Ultra Plush Lipgloss in “”Kiss You”, Illamsqua Nail Polish in “Cameo”

One iconic piece Rebecca Minkoff is known for is her Becky Blazer. Every season she comes out with different colors and prints, but in the same classic style that we’ve all come to love and adore. It’s made of an amazing lightweight silk and has tiny shoulder pads that give a slightly exaggerated shape. It looks great over everything- jeans, dresses…you name it and is the perfect way to polish your outfit. I’m crazy about this “flax” color and love how it pulls out the blues in my dress. I’ll be paring it with a simple white tank top and jeans on the weekend or with a fitted skirt and blouse for weekday meetings.

Polka Dot Pants

Otte Sweater, Old Navy Pants, Ann Taylor Coat (30% off right now with code: FALLCHIC), Kate Spade NY Bag c/o, J.Crew Heels (old, similar style here), Coach Scarf, Illamasqua Nail Polish in “Superstition”, bareMinerals Pretty Amazing in “Ambition”

Back to San Francisco and back to fall style- I did love having a week of getting to wear real summer clothes though! These Old Navy polka dot pants were great to slip into once I got back. They’re really comfortable and the ankle length is extra flattering. I always find myself mixing polka-dots with other prints instead of solids. Like leopard, I think of them as a neutral. I also bought these cords, which are a similar style, that I know I’ll get tons of use out of. I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but Old Navy is really stepping up their t-shirt/sweatshirt game right now! I went a little crazy and picked up this, this and this. I couldn’t decide which one was my favorite and the price way just too good to not get them all! They remind me of the Zoe Karssen shirts/sweatshirts (more here) that everyone loves.

Classic White

Rebecca Minkoff Top c/o, Old Navy Shorts, 31Bits Necklace, Gucci Sunglasses, Preston & Olivia Hat

These pictures are sort of a before & after :) The first three were shot right before we boarded a boat for a sunset cruise, the next three are after 2.5 hours of wind whipping through my hair on the open sea (there was no way my hat was staying on and we weren’t allowed to wear shoes!)

I love how crisp and simple an all white outfit is, especially while on vacation or in this case, a boat. When I was browsing the Rebecca Minkoff section at Saks, I knew I had to have this white peplum top. It’s like a timeless white shirt, you can wear it year round at anytime with anything. I also really love this two-toned version, but knew I would get more use out of classic white. Rebecca Minkoff structures the cuts and seams on her tops and dresses perfectly to fit a women’s body. How gorgeous is this dress that comes in long or short sleeves and also a few different colors. I can’t get enough!

Here are some of my favorite peplum tops and dresses…
