in the shade

{Sweet Pea dress, Old Navy vest, Steve Madden booties, Rebecca Minkoff bag}

Sometimes less is more, in this case it was a hot day, hence I was wearing less (crazy) than usual on our unseasonably warm, for the Bay Area, fall day. But because looks can be deceiving my friends, sunny California ain't sunny or warm no more- and I must disclose these pics were from a weeks back- when I could actually feel my toes in open toe sandals!  But nowadays even though it feels like Winter, don't get it twisted, it's still very much fall...brrrr, at least on Dec 21st there will be excuse for the chill! So with credit card in hand, I went a shoppin' at the nearby outdoor mall, and tried to get my tan as well! Oh sunny fall days how I miss thee.

Now for some appropriate "winter" dressing, check out little old me, featured this week in the NY Times Style Section!!!! I'm sporting a gorgeously colored royal purple velvet number, check it here!

go big, or go home

{Hollister cardigan, H&M pants, Apt. 9 shirt, Zara shoes, Jewelmint necklace, Ann Taylor cuff, & F21 ring}

So these pictures may be a little obnoxious of me, buuuuut I love the combo of all the textures, colors, and pretty much the overall concept of a crazy kinda seasonal outfit like this one! What can I say,  I have been obsessed with cozy knits, red hues, and these stacked heels- obvi, a fave of mine! If I could wear this outfit everyday for a month I would- it's quintessentially me! The all the way buttoned up silk top, the buttery (p)leather pants, cap toe kicks and jewelry to the max- like the saying goes: go big or go home, right?!
