Golden Girl

Hat – Nordstrom / Dress – Aritzia / Duster – Azalea

When I stumbled across the most perfect duster earlier this year, I was determined to find a way to wear it with everything. This was a tough buy for me though. I worried that having a sweater like this would continuously make me feel shorter than I was. I struggled wondering if it was worth the purchase and how I might wear it with dresses, jackets, and jeans. Ultimately, that hassle that I worried about was actually non-existent because it was such a good buy. I’ve worn it with many pieces from my closet at this point, but this is actually one of my favorite outfit pairings for when I’m caught in a pickle and feel like I have “nothing to wear.” It’s my favorite because this dress is already the number one piece I throw on for those cases and this sweater is an easy toss on right after that. I love the contrast of the shorter little black dress with the long duster and I’m following my usual pattern of sticking to one color mainly and adding in the gray duster to piece it all together.

Nordstrom’s 27/7 Curbside Pickup for the Holidays

Holiday shopping with Nordstrom just got a little bit easier! This holiday season, the retailer is offering up 24/7 curbside pickup at select stores for more convenience. We all know how much of a pain it is to go shopping during the holidays – to deal with crowds and the parking. Personally, I’d be worried about going in stores for fear of buying more than I had intended!

10 Nordstrom locations are offering this feature up in the week leading up to Christmas. How does it work?

Nordstrom customers who have placed a Buy Online & Pickup In-Store order can call or text their respective store’s Curbside Pickup phone number just 10 minutes before arriving, at which point a Nordstrom employee will meet customers with their merchandise.

I repeat. This is 24/7.

The retailer’s 24/7 Curbside Pickup will run from Dec. 16-24 at the following Nordstrom locations: Nordstrom Downtown Seattle (Seattle, WA), Nordstrom Bellevue Square (Bellevue, WA), Nordstrom Michigan Avenue (Chicago, IL), Nordstrom Oakbrook Center (Oak Brook, IL), Nordstrom NorthPark Center (Dallas, TX), Nordstrom Tysons Corner Center (Mclean, VA), Nordstrom The Westchester (White Plains, NY), Nordstrom South Coast Plaza (Costa Mesa, CA), Nordstrom Fashion Valley (San Diego, CA) and Nordstrom Valley Fair (San Jose, CA).

Hold On To Your Hat

Hat – Nordstrom / Sweater – Madewell / Denim – Levi’s / Shoes – Vince Camuto

Doesn’t this outfit look like it belongs in a modern day western? White with black (or in this case dark grey for the denim) is my favorite color combo because of how versatile it is. I definitely didn’t need the hat for this occasion, but sometimes when you’re feeling a little too plain, it helps to add something extra. Jimmy and I took some great shots back when we were in our old neighborhood. I’ll miss all the brick!

Daytime Glam

Top – Urban Outfitters / Skirt – Nordstrom / Heels – Vince Camuto

With any kind of formal wear, you always run the risk of never being quite sure if you’re going to have another occasion to wear it again. That’s what this skirt was for me. Last December, I purchased it as part of my holiday party ensemble and as much as I loved it, I knew I was buying it with the chance of it being a one-time wear. One day this past spring, I decided that I was just going to go for it. I perused through all my tops and blouses trying to find a fit when I landed on this faux-lace Urban Outfitters tee that I had bought early on in college. Since the band on the skirt is elastic, tucking the entire top in pulled the outfit together and emphasized my waist. I paired this all with my favorite Vince Camuto heels. I will admit, I was pretty nervous to be wearing this to work for the fear of people asking me “what I was dressed up for?” but it never came. It’s scary when you think you’ve overdressed for an event or an occasion, but if you can have fun with it and own it, it honestly doesn’t matter.

The Closet: July 2017

 

Warehouse Ditsy Floral Ruffle Hem Midi Dress$105 – $42

The five pieces that stole my heart for July and the last five we’ll see before we head into a dreamy fall! I’ve got one more wedding this month so clearly, I’ve had wedding guest dresses on my mind and a lusting for some items from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale which I stayed very very far away from.

Spring Style with Tobi

Dress – Tobi / Hat – Nordstrom / Booties – Vince Camuto

There is so much to look forward to when it comes to spring style. I’ll admit that every year, I am eagerly anticipating which trends will be on the rise and how I can incorporate them into my wardrobe, but this year I did things a bit differently. I wanted an opportunity to branch out of my usual habit and instead embrace spring trends in a way that I haven’t ever done before. Instead of the predictable floral, I chose a print. Instead of an off-the-shoulder top, I chose a white lace-up crop top. They weren’t my typical “safe” choices and that’s ok! I had a lot of fun styling these two very different pieces with my own closet and collaborating with Tobi.

What I love about the brand is that I’m always able to find exactly what I’m looking for – whether it’s finding the next in-season item or finding my perfect “going out” dress like I’ve done in the past for birthdays and my girlfriends’ bachelorette parties. There are always many options to choose from and colors so sometimes the decision is easy…or equally challenging. If you’re a first time shopper with Tobi, be sure to take advantage of their “50% off your first order!” Is there a better way to get acquainted with a brand?

Black, White, and Witchy

Hat – Nordstrom / Sweater – Madewell / Dress – Aritzia

For my body type, normally this outfit wouldn’t be considered the most flattering, but I think I’ve now reached this point in my life with my style that I will still wear what I want to wear regardless of the fact. Generally, for those that are more petite, anything close to a maxi (ish) dress can be a little hard to pull off, but you all know how much I love pairing my white and black pieces. The Aritzia dress is one that I typically wear during the summer and has an open back, but since it was fall, I decided to throw a sweater on top of it and add the hat to give it more dimension. This felt like a very natural and comfortable look for me. I wore this to the office, but I could see myself wearing this for a coffee date or even a day of errands.

Saucy in Santa Cruz

Top – Brandy Melville / Shorts – Aritzia / Sunglasses – Kate Spade / Scarf – Forever 21 / Booties – Munro (Nordstrom)

Who dis?! We find out that we’re spending a day in Santa Cruz and of course we turned this into a whole outfit thing. In case any of you are wondering, Santa Cruz doesn’t exactly fit that bohemian vibe that we’re attempting here, but that didn’t matter to us, clearly. Over the summer, some of the employees at work wanted to treat our interns out to a fun afternoon in Santa Cruz. I hadn’t been back since winter 2012 so I was pretty excited to spend a hot summer day there. And okay, it’s no Disney Land, but the rides aren’t bad. More importantly, have we mentioned how much we LOVE Skeeball?!

I wasn’t planning on beaching while in Santa Cruz, but this was the perfect outfit for everything else we did that day. Aside from the fact… that we had to take our scarf off during the rollercoaster and my booties got sand in them. Other than that – 100%! I actually haven’t worn this scarf since I had been back in Seattle and even then I had just worn it pretty simply around my neck. Draping it like this was more fun!

The Every Girl

Sweater and Shorts – Brandy Melville / Booties – Munro (Nordstrom)

When I was younger, I was very proud to be a girly girl. I liked wearing dresses and skirts and not getting dirty. I didn’t care if I could hang with the boys because I had my girls. However, as we’ve aged and we’ve experienced a little bit more life, our views have sort of shifted. I’m still wearing dresses and skirts, but we don’t mind if there’s an edge to us. See how these are booties and not your predictable wedges? This isn’t the greatest example, but even as I get older, I’m trying to see how I can incorporate more masculine items into my wardrobe or even my home. Yes, someday I will have to share a home with my husband and it’d be nice if it were a reflection of the both of us. :) Also, you may not know this unless you follow me on Instagram, but I also love shopping at men’s boutiques. There aren’t always items tailored to me, but I like styling my guy friends and picking out things for them and getting inspiration from other products.

Blondie

Top – Brandy Melville / Shorts – Aritzia / Booties – Munro via Nordstrom / Scarf – J. Crew

Someone once commented that they thought the backdrop that I selected for this photo was really tacky. I actually love it! It’s outside of a movie theater and it’s a little bit different, but it’s so fun. I had just gotten back from Seattle after dyeing my hair even more blonde; we almost didn’t recognize ourselves. Seriously, who is this girl? It’s funny to see how my style has evolved over the last 3 years since moving to California because this isn’t normally an outfit we’d wear in Seattle – not even if we were just visiting. I don’t know if it was the outfit itself or moreso the blonde hair, but we felt confident. It’s 6 months later and after returning back home to Seattle again, we decided not to color our hair. We’re actually letting it grow out so that we can get the blonde out for good, but I’ll always appreciate this time in my life – in my 20’s where we just wanted to try something new. I don’t know how and I can’t put it into words, but this blonde hair changed me in the last 6 months.

Our Favorite Looks of 2016

Tank top – Abercrombie & Fitch / Chambray shirt – Madewell / Skirt – Brandy Melville

It’s way more fun to share your 12 favorite outfits from the year instead of the ones that just flopped, right?! We don’t always get it right, but luckily the shame of an outfit gone wrong usually only lasts a day. #blessed that my coworkers are always there to give me that immediate feedback. On the upside, I love the outfits that I’ve selected as my favorites for the year. We love that some of these outfits are ones that we’ve worn more than once and have recycled with other items from our closet to make them more versatile. And if there’s one thing that we appreciate more this year in these outfits than the ones we ended up hating – it’s that “less really is more.” Thanks Ma.

Hot Hot Summer

Hat – Nordstrom / Top – Urban Outfitters / Shorts – Aritiza / Sneakers – Converse

When it’s summer in the Bay Area, walk breaks from work are absolutely necessary. Even with so few pieces, we were melting in this heat. I don’t particularly love this look at all, but I was in love with this tank top when I discovered it one day after popping into Urban Outfitters. As a coincidence though, this shade of pink and black were my two favorite colors in middle school so this is somewhat nostalgic. I don’t actually think that the hat and the Converse sneakers are a good match, but we tried!

Watermelon Colored Walls

Shorts – Forever21 / Top – Brandy Melville / Hat – Nordstrom / Birkenstocks

We will probably never ever wear this outfit again. Every now and then I’ll pull something out of my closet to create an experimental outfit or to try and wear a piece that we can photograph with. That piece happened to be these shorts. They’re just made out of cloth really and are a black base with an off-white floral pattern over it. I wanted so badly to make these work, but I remember feeling pretty uncomfortable in these on my shopping trip. There’s nothing wrong with them! I’ve just sort of outgrown this look. In a previous time, I would’ve rocked these without any problem. In 2016, I’m just an awkward turtle.

How to Ring in 2017 or More Importantly… What You’ll Wear

Rachel Zoe satin-trimmed corded lace jumpsuit$495 $347

We always write this post a little bit late don’t we? Last year, I wrote it the day after Christmas and today I’m starting it at the end of Christmas Day. The reason why is usually because we don’t have time or we put off doing it, but my rationale is that New Years plans always happen last minute! Unless you’ve planned a trip around it or have some kind of occasion, most people have no idea what they’re doing for New Year’s Eve – myself included. Every. Single. Year. Last year, I ended up going out on Capitol Hill with my cousins and having a pretty entertaining night, but this year? We’re still not sure. I brought my trusty long-sleeved Aritiza dress back home with me though for this specific outing. You know… just in case! I’m sharing with you all some of my favorite looks to end the year, but it’s likely you may not be able to purchase these and get them delivered on time so look to these as inspiration instead!
