Turtlenecks 4eva

Choker – Urban Outfitters / Turtleneck + Jacket – Aritzia / Denim – Forever21

If you would have told a younger me that in my late 20’s I’d be wearing a turtleneck, I would have probably laughed in your face. As cozy as they are, I never felt like I belonged in them. That was until… I met the one that I would fall in love with. So I’m pretty fortunate that since I’ve been living in California, I’ve gotten to know these girls at the Aritzia in Valley Fair quite well. Every few months or so when I need to revamp my wardrobe or shop for a special occasion, they are there for me. In fact, they’ve gotten to know my style so well these days that when I come in, they bring me pieces that they already know I’m going to like into the dressing room and more often then not, they end up being right! For example, this very sleek and chic turtleneck. It’s not your standard because it’s thin and sheer – two words you don’t normally use to describe turtlenecks. I also loved how this photographed. The sunlight makes it look so shiny! To elevate the classic look a little bit with the turtleneck tucked into denim, I added the choker and threw my hair back into a ponytail.

She Wore What: Pippa Middleton’s Wedding Day

It happened! Pippa Middleton is a married lady and the bride wore a couture Giles Deacon gown for her special day. I’m in love with this – the high neck, allover lace, and overall silhouette. This is such a modern take on classic and elegance. Pippa and Kate are two sisters with very good taste. As you may remember, after Kate wore her long-sleeved Alexander McQueen wedding dress, it became the next IT dress of wedding seasons for the next year. I definitely expect the same trend to follow with Pippa’s wedding style as well.

When You’re Northwest

Jacket + Leggings  – Aritzia / Hoodie – American Apparel (RIP) / Sneakers – Nike

While most locals would say that gloomy days in the Bay Area are in the worst, I kind of welcome it! It reminds me of home and instead of feeling unbearably hot all day, I can layer up and stay cozy all day long. This outfit that I wore this day was so completely Northwest of me and we didn’t hate it. I bought this American Apparel hoodie back when I was in high school and still wear it to this day. I’m also never going to let this jacket go. You’ve all seen this a million times.

Celebs @ Dior’s Cruise 2018 Show

Demi Moore

I missed a moment in fashion this week when celebrities and models attended the Western-inspired show presented by Dior’s 2018 Cruise collection. Everyone was dressed to the nines so we had to make this a post of its own instead of just featuring one person for a Snaps for a Snapshot. When you can’t pick just one – choose them all. Everyone wore Dior.

Parking Lot Green Dreams

Top – Aritzia / Sweater – Oak + Fort / Pants – Uniqlo

When all else fails, I know I can always rely on my Uniqlo jeggings (I know – hard to believe, right?) a solid top and a cardigan to throw on top of it. This is MY version of a jeans and a t-shirt look. This cardigan is made out of the fabric that reminds me of towels and bathrobes, but it’s the most cozy. I love getting wrapped up in this and to make things even better, it’s also perfectly oversized. When I was working in Mountain View, I just about exhausted every location on Castro Street to photograph with so this was one of the last shoots that we did. Don’t let the pretty greenery fool you. I’m totally in a parking lot… for a place I don’t even know.

Half-Tuck

Turtleneck and Skirt – Aritzia / Socks – Uniqlo / Boots – J. Crew / Bracelet – Madewell

I just realized that very recently I wrote on Yow Yow! about power outfits and clearly when I wrote that post, I forgot about this one. This Aritzia get-up is one of my all time favorites and mostly because it’s an outfit that I would have normally never gravitated towards. I had been seeing these two separate pieces from Aritzia pop up everywhere – in my emails, on their website, on display in their stores. Each time, I never had a desire to try them on or make a purchase. It was like the universe was trying to tell me something else though. Finally one day, I gave in. I used to think turtlenecks were old school and also, why would I have wanted a turtleneck that isn’t super thick and as sheer as this one? Turns out, it’s one of the most comfortable things I own. It’s actually really nice to not have it be very thick because it means I don’t get stuffy in the sweater. It’s also loose fitting enough to wear untucked or tucked into this perfect suede skirt. I didn’t want to purchase the skirt because I was afraid of not knowing how to take care of it. I also worried that it wouldn’t be as versatile, but it turns out even if it isn’t – it goes well with this turtleneck completely so that’s enough for me. The rest of the photos in this series make my laugh. The bracelet shot below makes it look like I think it’s a watch when it’s not. Also, we may have gone a little overboard on the editing in the last photo, but I like that my hair is the color of FALL and my surroundings.

Jennifer Behr’s Headpieces

You never forget the first wedding feature that you fell in love with. I was still in high school when I stumbled across Style Me Pretty for the first time, but it would be a few years later – in my senior year of college to be exact – that I would come across a feature that I would always remember and compare every wedding to. The bride wore a Johanna Johnson dress and a matching sparkling headpiece that I still envision in my dreams today. This was back in 2012, but even then, I was very confident that I might have a dress like Annie’s by Australian designer Johanna Johnson on my special day, but even more confident that I would have a similar headpiece. Even before seeing this wedding feature, wearing something on my head throughout my time of growing up has always been my thing. As a kid, I had headbands in every color. My mom got me into these. And in middle school? I would buy the thinner ones made of elastic or fabric from Wet Seal or Claire’s. And in college, I acquired so many tees from student events that I would cut a layer from the bottom of the shirts all the way around to wear a makeshift DIY headband across my forehead. So it’s settled. It is what it is and after seeing Jennifer Behr’s latest collection for fall, I can’t seem to stop thinking about how wonderful these would be.

Take Me to the Farm!

Scarf and Leggings – Aritzia / Vest – Uniqlo / Mittens – Urban Outfitters / Boots – Hunter

Well what do you know, a Christmas time post in the month of May! We’re behind on outfit posts as usual, but it has always been a tradition to share my moments at the Christmas Tree Farm and this year is no different. I think these outfit posts are always a little bit funny because I end up bringing out the pieces that I rarely wear on the daily – like these BEAR mittens for example. Also, matching my outfit is not a priority hence this get up. It’s not about being stylish (well, it’s a little bit about being stylish) but it’s about being comfortable and having the appropriate attire to cut down a tree  watch Eric cut down the tree.

2017 Met Gala Red Carpet

I wanted so badly to get home early Monday evening so that I could have this post ready in time for Tuesday morning as a recap, but of course, we stayed at work a little bit later that night. The good thing about writing this post now though is that I feel like I’m not under a time crunch and I can really take my time with it.

Bee Shaffer is not exactly “in” the fashion world, but her mother is Anna Wintour and every year she continues to stun. This was one of my favorite looks from the evening. Here she is wearing Alexander McQueen with her fiance Francesco Carrozzini. #powercouple
