classic + a bit on the side

Topshop blouse// Reformation coat// Madewell jeans// Zara loafers// Wildfox shades// CVS bag

Recently, I visited CVS (yes- the pharmacy!) with a friend and we both agreed that this bag (which is really a gift bag) looked similar to the Fendi monster collection. At first it was a joke, but slowly the thought of using this gift bag (with a convenient fabric lining) as a clutch grew on me. The color, too, caught my eye. A bold clutch such as this really jazzes up a classic outfit, like this black and white look I came up with. After I left my house I realized that I looked a bit pilgrim-esque, but whatever! At least I had a cute turquoise friend by my side!

Marc Jacobs outfit, Marc Jacobs  key chain, Alexander McQueen jeans, Anya Hindmarch pouch, Au Jour Le Jour sweatshirt, Marni loafers, Yazbukey t-shirt and paint clutch

My favorite trend this season, presented beautifully by Marc Jacobs, is bright and bold yet simple pieces. I'm obsessed with the graffiti boyfriend jeans- they're a definite need. I also have always admired Au Jour Le Jour's graphic and simplistic patterns and I'm a total sucker for purses that look like other objects- like the paint tube clutch and the digestives pouch!

Sydney: mesh top- flea market // undershirt- Topshop // shorts- Zara // necklace- flea market // flannel- James Perse 

Me: button down- & Other Stories // skirt- Zara // sneakers- Nike // black bracelet- Balenciaga // necklace- Topshop // bag- Stella McCartney 

Los Angeles in October usually marks the start of fall, but this year, it has only gotten hotter. Today it rose above 95 degrees! But, what people don't understand is that hot doesn't always mean summer. It is October, for crying out loud! It is not floral summer dress, sandal, jean shorts, neon top season! If it's still hot where you live, please remember that it's the time that should be sweater swather. That's why I enlisted my friend Sydney to help show how you can keep to the calendar and still keep it cool. 
Skirts, silk shorts, and dark neutrals are key.
