Rains Jacket – $125
Don’t worry, we’re still trying to enjoy as much of the summer as we can and for those that live in San Francisco, you know it isn’t very long. The changing of the seasons is always so exciting for me though! I’m very fortunate that I’ve lived in areas that experience all four of them. Imagine if you had to wear the same wardrobe year round? The swapping in and out is really the best part, wouldn’t you agree?
If I could shop at one place for the rest of my life, it would be Aritzia. I have a good relationship with the retailer and even more so with the ladies down at The Valley Fair shopping mall! S/O to the ones that always bring me the best pieces that I always end up buying. <3
As we head into fall, I’m already thinking about how to revamp my wardrobe especially one that is appropriate for the girl now living back in the city again. Here are my favorite picks, but don’t be alarmed – some of them aren’t just “fall” specific.

Wilfred Rosa Dress – $55
What’s Christmas without a little after Christmas Day shopping?! Aritzia was holding their annual Boxing Day sale and of course we couldn’t pass this opportunity up. This time around, I thought I was going to be leaving with a turtleneck of some kind (dress or sweater) and something velvety, but instead I left with a sleeveless dress that I could wear layered during the cold months and well into the spring/summer and a dress that had been sold out for a few weeks and then brought back! When you put on this sweater dress, it’s like wearing pajamas and the coziest thing you’ve ever put on. And because I never feel like I have enough sweaters…we bought one more cardigan to add to the closet.

Jimmy Choo – Lilyth 120 – $665
Being 25 has changed me. I know so because this year I asked Kevin for very practical gifts that I actually need including luggage with wheels for my travels and a new laptop sleeve because I’ve spilt too many liquids on my old one. I also need a pair of earbuds to replace my old ones. Next year, I’ll be asking for a new vacuum, cushions, sheets, and aromatherapy sticks. Who are we kidding? We’ll take those now! Actually this year’s Christmas wish list is probably the most diverse that I’ve created so let’s just enjoy this alright?

Talulah Manhattan Pant – $65
I paid a visit to my favorite retailer, Aritzia, a few weeks ago and I was surprised to see that their store was stocked front to back with the most beautiful and stunning velvety pieces. I wasn’t a 90’s child that wore a lot of velvet back in the day. I might have owned one piece of clothing in the fabric and I can for sure say that it wasn’t a favorite because it’s completely not memorable to me today. I had my reservations at first, but as I started making my way through the store, my hesitation turned into curiosity and then very quickly to lust for this very soft and romantic piece of fabric. Are any of you excited to be wearing velvet in 2016?! Maybe you just need a little push… here are 5 pieces from Aritzia to get you started:

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.
