How do you take a basic all black outfit to the next level? Easy! Find a piece that stands out against the rest. Look for pieces that are classic and can be worn in a variety of different pieces.

Let's talk about this vest. This is the perfect vest for all seasons. Not only can we dress it up, we can always dress it down. I paired it with a basic all black outfit because I knew black would really make the color pop. Another great thing about this vest is that it is a great transition piece. It will be "summer" here in Southern California for quite some time, so this is the perfect piece to start wearing when the weather cools down. Not to mention it is chic AF!! I've already planned on wearing it to work and out on the weekends...on the weekends I think I'll pair it with a pair of jeans and a t-shirt or a tank top.

Sometimes just by adding one simple piece to a basic outfit changes the entire feel and look you're going for. Don't be afraid to try something new or something that's slightly different than what you normally wear to change things up.

Fall Transition Dress

Sunday, August 12, 2018

Dress: c/o West47th (Use Code Glamazon10 for 10% off) // Sandals: Sam Edelman//
Watch: Michael Kors//Earrings: Banana Republic//Bracelets: Old

If you live anywhere on the west coast you are probably thinking the same thing I'm thinking, "When will this heat wave be over?!" Personally, I'm waiting for this heatwave to be over so I can pull out all of my fall clothes. I am so ready to cozy up in my apartment with a blanket. I am completely over walking in, turning on the AC or sitting in front of a fan. I'll be honest and say Los Angeles doesn't really have a fall season let alone any other season besides hot and hotter but I would like to think that I could change my wardrobe to a different set of colors...at least. For fall I like to pull clothes that have darker more muted colors. Although the weather may still be warm I'd at least like to feel like I am in the fall season just by changing my color scheme a little bit.

So let's take this dress for example. It's perfect for fall season because the color scheme is right on point! It's perfect for Los Angeles fall season because its off the shoulder! It's perfect for me because the dress is completely fun and flirty!

If I'm not able to fully transition into fall season by wearing sweaters and long jackets, then I will definitely be looking for pieces that fit into my idea of what the fall color palette should be. I found my first front runner!

Re-Purposed in Red

Thursday, August 9, 2018

Dress: c/o Nina Cheyenne//Visor: H&M//Sneakers: Old (similar here and here

What do you do when you have a dress that's perfect for going out but you want to wear it for something else?

This is often a problem I run into! I have plenty of dresses in my wardrobe, for work and for going out but not very many casual dresses. So I need to find a way to re-purpose my dressier dresses and the dresses that are more suited for the club. You know, what we call the "Freak Em' Dress" or what my neighbor calls the "Go Get Em' Dress"!

So take this stress from Nina Cheyenne, it's perfect for going out for a night on the town with the girls. It's been so hot lately in L.A. so I'm usually at home in the evening sitting underneath a fan or in front of the air condition. Going out just hasn't been top priority. I still want to look cute when I go out during the day, or meet my friends for lunch, so in this instance I traded a pair of heels for a pair of slide on sneakers and put a visor on. That simple! I still feel sexy and chic but without all of the effort of getting super dressed up to go out on the town. Plus, it was super easy to throw on. Nothing beats pulling on a dress over your head, sliding on shoes, and running out the door! 

I definitely plan on re-purposing this dress for a night on the town but for now this is going to be my new day time weekend dress!
