Wilfred Teigen Dress$85 $80

I was invited to shop the MAJOR sale early at Aritzia last week, but unfortunately just couldn’t make it out to their store to try on all the goodies. Instead, I waited until it was open to the public and to my surprise they still had all of the things I wanted in all of the sizes that I was looking for. I would’ve been crushed if I had missed the sale because half of my wardrobe comes from them. This sale was so important to me that I went straight there after hopping off the plane from my trip in San Diego.

I actually own the dress (top) in burgundy, but accidentally shrunk it once to a length that is barely cutting it. I decided this time to purchase it in black and in xsmall (one size larger than my original) just to have that extra baggy look. Also, I’ve been wanting this skort forever and while it’s not a huge cut from the original price, it seemed like a good enough excuse to take the plunge and buy it.

Work From SF

Dress – Aritzia / Denim shirt – Madewell / Black boots – borrowed from mom years ago!

The other day we had the opportunity to work from the city instead of our office in South Bay – an opportunity I always take when I have the chance! It’s actually such a great perk from the company because we get to rent an Airbnb for the day, have breakfast and lunch and then celebrate with drinks after. We were all working pretty diligently in The Mission that day, but Alberto and I snuck out for a mini photo break to capture our latest OOTD.

Greenery

Knit sweater – Brandy Melville / Black leggings – Aritizia

I was told this week that it was going to be pretty rainy so I bundled up and the sun came out! Usually in Seattle when the weather forecast says that it’s going to rain, it ends up being a torrential downpour. Luckily for me, I’ve gotten used to wearing layers and even wearing this outfit on a warm day wasn’t the worst thing in the world. Leah and I have been searching for better backdrops in the neighborhood and we didn’t have to walk too far to find this gem!

I Got Hops

Chambray shirt – Madewell / Skirt – H&M / Scarf – Aritzia / Booties – Munro via Nordstrom

It turned out to be pretty gray today so we bundled up! This is actually kind of a drastic change from the all white outfit I wore just a couple of days ago when it was completely sunny. We decided to have a little bit more fun with this post though so Leah captured a photograph of me getting some air! Surprisingly, we only needed just 4 takes to get this! Having grown up in Seattle, I never really realized how much of a damper (pun intended) the weather can have on our overall health and wellbeing. Even though it rained just a little bit today, I found myself feeling more tired and at one point even a little sick. Turns out a few of my co-workers shared the same sentiments as well. Maybe it’s all in my head or maybe it’s just what the weather does to us all. Whatever the case, I’m really glad I got to feel like I was skipping ahead to fall today!

Top – Aritzia / Belt – Madewell / Skirt – Urban Outfitters / Wedges – DV by Dolce Vita

We rarely ever do OOTD posts and when we did do them, I was wearing a space helmet! RIP Space Girl and Space Street Style. I still get super self-conscious when we do photos like this these days, but it totally helps to have great co-workers who also double up as photographers! Caught: a laughing me in the wild with the new S’mores Frappuccino from Starbucks (more on that later!) I actually bought this skirt almost immediately after I came out of my SoulCycle workout on Monday night since Urban Outfitters was next door. And because I deserved it after that session! It was between this and a white lace romper, but this one is much more versatile and a perfect fit with the rest of my wardrobe. I was also hesitant to be wearing an all white outfit since I’d never done it before, but have always wanted to and a little hint of gold goes a long way.

Azure Skies Dactyl Tank – $35

While running errands yesterday, I stopped by the mall to make an exchange on a swimsuit piece that I had recently purchased. I had been getting emails from Aritzia that they were having a huge spring sale so I figured while I was at the mall, I might as well pop in. To my disappointment, it seems like the sale was only online, but that didn’t stop me from perusing the rest of the entire store where every piece was originally priced.

I told myself – I’m just browsing. My wallet is staying in my purse and I’m not going to take it out. There’s no harm in looking. This was very similar to the lie that I used to tell my grandparents when I was a kid and they took me to the grocery store and I told them that I only wanted to “look” at the candy aisle, but promised not to ask for anything. They always caved, of course. And naturally, I did too and purchased this adorable pastel colored and polka dotted tank. I almost walked right past it, but it was sort of… twinkling at me on the corner rack. It looked great with my new Uniqlo jeggings that I have been obsessed with and it’s a perfect wear for both spring and summer. I feel like every summer is a summer devoted to stripes, but I’m really looking forward to bringing back the polka dots and hopefully soon I’ll show you all some of my favorite polka dotted picks for the season!

Proud Owner: Birthday Edition

Wilfred Free Yasmin Dress

I’ve been doing such a good job lately of saving my moneys and it’s something that I’m actually really proud of. Other than purchases made on a gift card, I haven’t bought any new clothes for myself in what feels like two months. Turns out that I never really needed to anyways. However, with my birthday just around the corner, I thought I deserved some new pieces and was pretty excited to splurge a bit on things that I knew I would love. This year, I decided that I wanted two dresses – one to wear the night I celebrate my birthday and another one to wear to work on the day of my birthday! Both dresses are from Aritzia and I adore them for very different reasons.

I have a long sleeved sweater dress similar to the one above, but I didn’t feel like it would be casual enough to wear out – plus I don’t want to wear long sleeves out. I decided to opt for this more laid back look with a sexy back cutout. I think it’s kind of fun! I’m really excited to not only wear this dress for my birthday, but for other occasions too. If this dress looks familiar, it’s because you’ve probably seen it during a “Closet” post that I’ve done.

The dress below is just really pretty and quirky. I really liked the print and the black and white is very versatile. I tried this dress in an electric blue too which would be great if I were headed to a tropical island, but I didn’t find it to be as wearable as this one.

Valentine’s Day Dresses For Your Perfect Evening

Happy February! Ever since I moved to California, I think I’ve loved February much more than when I lived in Seattle because unlike Seattle, February here kind of is like a little bit of a colder summer. There’s not much difference. Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and I usually love asking all of my couple friends what they have planned. Some get to be very elaborate while others barely celebrate the holiday  or doing something really easy by telling one another what they want and getting exactly that. I haven’t celebrated Valentine’s Day that much, but if I had to pick an ideal date, it would just be dinner, dessert, and drinks! Last year, I was treated out to dinner and drinks at a nearby wine bar and that was just enough for me. It’s amazing how much pressure there can be on one holiday – gifts, plans, expectations, and lastly – what to wear! Red and pink are usual go-to’s, but I really love when people toss in blue and that’s why I’m highlighting this dress above from Urban Outfitters. Need more inspiration? Click the cut!

What I Wore to Ring in 2015

[Sunday Best Sexton Dress]

I got a little too excited about New Year’s Eve tonight and what I’d be wearing that I pulled on my outffit right out of the shower. I still have a few errands to run, but I’m thinking about just pulling a sweater over this so that I can continue wearing it. Does that sound like an acceptable idea? I recently purchased this dress along with many other pieces from the Aritzia sale and instantly knew that it was going to be New Year’s Eve worthy. While it’s a little bit of a sexy dress, there are plenty of opportunities to dress it down. It also flares out at the bottom so it doesn’t cling to your body like it looks like it would in this photo above. I’ve also been itching to own a little velvet in my collection recently, but could never opt for anything that was all velvet so the dainty velvet floral on this is just perfect.

I’m pairing this with a minimalistic gold bar necklace, my Catbird ring and my new stack ring from Madewell along with my newest Vince Camuto black heels. More pictures later, we promise!

How to Ring in 2015 Right

Yumi Kim Beaded Elsa Dress – $300

TBH, we could’ve started this post a lot sooner, but lately I’ve been less than a planner than I’ve ever been in my life. You would think that I would have already planned out what I was going to do for New Years Eve already because normally that would’ve been decided weeks ago, but in fact, it’s still up in the air. It’s actually between seeing a DJ set in SF by Mayer Hawthorne or … you know…going to Vegas. So there’s that. Whatever the case – wherever I end up – having an outfit to wear on New Year’s Eve is something that I don’t skimp on. It’s actually one of my favorite holidays to dress up for (even though I don’t care about New Year’s Eve) because it’s the one time where you can look very sparkly and girly and what girl doesn’t love doing that for a night? So sorry for the late notice on this. If you see something you like just bite the bullet and purchase immediately so that it makes it in time for your big event!

Warning: We’ve got feels for the little black dress ahead!

Wilfred Diamond Mosaic Blanket – $85

I never thought I would cave in and buy an oversized scarf, but I totally did. It was kind of an accident, really. Back in October, I had purchased an Aritizia beanie that I loved, but thought I had lost. On the eve of Black Friday, I decided I couldn’t live without it and purchased a replacement only to discover a couple days later that the lost beanie was just sitting in with all of my other hats. So I returned the second beanie hoping to exchange it for something just as great. I found this scarf which was the price of the beanie…and then some. I’ve been feeling a little bit self-conscious that it’s just too overwhelming for me, but I’m still deciding to completely own it anyways. Sometimes I wrap it once while throwing the rest over my shoulder and sometimes I wear it as a shawl like a grandmother. Does it even matter how I wear it? It’s warm and getting me through this winter! It comes in a few different colors, but I love this red and blue one. Tommy says it makes me look very patriotic. Yay.

Beanie – Wilfred // Coat – Topshop by Nordstrom // Leggings – Aritzia // Boots – Hunter // Scarf – borrowed from Mom

Remember the days when I was just too self-conscious to be posting photos of my outfit that we used a space helmet to make things a little bit easier? I’ve learned that when you’re traveling for work, it’s importnat to set aside time for yourself on your trips where you do things that are just for you. Taking advantage of being home in Seattle very recently, I decided to take a trip with my family up to Vancouver so that we could do a little eating and a whole lot of shopping. This was something that Kevin and I used to do when we were younger – taking day trips up to visit our favorite boutiques. Naturally, it was pouring and made for the most unpleasant experience. Shopping in the rain is the worst, but I’m glad I was able to return home with a few new pieces that I love.

Earlier this week, I donned a black knitted hat with my outfit that hugged the back of my head perfectly. Granted, this is the first time of the fall season that I’ve worn a hat so I shouldn’t be surprised by the reactions I received by my co-workers, but I totally was.

“Oh hey! Hat!”

“Whoa, you look good today.”

“You should wear hats more.”

So I got to thinking – what other hats could I branch out into. I’ve always wanted to own a beanie, but I felt kind of weird about it because I had side bangs and trying to manage them under a hat was a little bit tricky. I saw this one by Wilfred at Arizia this past weekend in Vancouver and while it was a price that I would not normally pay for a hat, I knew I was going to get a lot of use of it. It started with me wearing it right out of the store and the rest of my day trip.

Aritzia Fall 2014 Lookbook

TNA

I was having dinner with my dad earlier this week on the outdoor patio of Cascal when I noticed two things – the winds were picking up and the outdoor overhead heaters were turned on. Surely, that’s a sign that fall is on its way and we no longer will be in the sweltering heat. As much as I love the summer, I am very excited for fall. the cozy knit oversized sweaters, dresses with tights, and of course the pumpkin spice lattes that debut this coming Monday. Aritzia is one of my favorite retailers and I constantly live in their pieces no matter what season it is. Here is just a taste of what they are offering for the fall and we can’t wait.
