TOP: J.CREW (similar HERE) // JEANS: MADEWELL // SHOES: BY FAR // JEAN JACKET: CURRENT ELLIOT // BAG: CHLOE

I am a huge fan of jean jackets because they are pieces that can go from casual to trendy, depending on how you pair and wear them. This look is on the casual side, but I wanted to feel like I tried a litttttle bit, so threw on these By Far wrap around heeled loafers, and opted for this Current Elliot short sleeved jean jacket instead of a traditional one. 

I have been wearing this jean jacket allll the time lately and have gotten tons of compliments on it. It's kinda boxy which I like, because it gives the look a more street style feel, as it's less tailored and feminine. I also love this jacket with a long sleeved black turtleneck underneath to add a little dimension and to spice it up! What might otherwise be a more refined look, turns into a funkier and relaxed take on the typical fitted turtleneck and skinnies. I like to mix it up!

I also wanted to introduce you guys (if you haven't already fallen in love and stocked their instagram) to my favorite shoe label right now, By Far . Their shoes are perfect (and comfortable might I add)! The gorgeous shape of their boots, mules, slingbacks, and sandals are totally unique and honestly the best I have seen for these styles. They are definitely investment pieces, but I scored mine on Moda Operandi (they no longer have them) for just over $150, so you just have to keep your eyes peeled if youre looking for a deal (and honesly arent we all?!)! 

Check them out as well as some other cool jean jacket looks I am loving right now from designer to super affordable, shown below! And as always, let me know what you think and if you love these styles. I love your feedback ladies!

Can we please take a second to discuss how unreal this pink faux J. Crew jacket is?! 

OMG.  I am so in love with it. It's totally loud and verrrrry warm, some (my husband) might say it's unnecessarily warm for Los Angeles weather...but like, what if you go to NYC? London? Utah to ski? Whistler?

Right? Duh, come on, it's totally necessary! Haha okay, so to be perfectly honest, I would not seek out a thick, expensive jacket unless I felt like it was necessary for where I lived. BUT, (MAJOR BUT) I spotted this heaven-sent piece at Crossroads trading co. (more on my fave. consignment stores HERE) FOR $40!! So obviously I had to have it. Plus, I usually only buy once I have sold some stuff, so most of the time, I am trading clothes for clothes. WIN WIN!

I know it's not fair and I am sorry about that.  But, I searched and some are being sold on eBay and the like! GO! NOW!!  (similar here and here)

I wore this look to a Christmas dinner party and loved it, especially with these gorgeous and fun Marc Fisher Heels in this pretty pale pink and ornate pattern. I especially love the medium height block heel. Perfect for a tall girl that still likes the feeling of some lift, because... I just can't limit myself to kitten heels! I got them at Nordstrom Rack for a killer deal during the holidays and have been wearing them non stop.

If you love this look too, you can shop my entire outfit below in the " Shop the Post " section!

Thrift Find: My New Emerald Green Robe (that I'm dying over)

emeraldgreenrobe1.jpg

If you guys follow me on Instagram, you know I love a good thrift find and I am constantly on the hunt. I started thrift and consignment shopping when I was in college, because well, I was broke and wasn't given a huge monthly stipend like some of my friends that came from money (which I am so grateful for and would never do it differently because it made me stick to a budget and appreciate the value of a dollar).  

I always loved fashion and have had a strong sense of personal style since I was young, but in order to look the way I wanted to in college, I had to thrift and consignment shop to find my clothes. I fell in LOVE! If you search long enough, there are amazing finds out there, it just takes patience! I love stores like Crossroads and Wasteland, but there are second hand stores all over the place. You just gotta give them a try and see if they carry current and quality items.

Over the years as our careers have become more stable and have allowed more flexibility financially, I am able to buy some things that are more of an investment. I will never give up thrifting though, its just a smart way to shop. FOR INSTANCE, I found this robe that is currently full priced on Revolve with the tags on! 

I am in love with the color, pattern, and feel of this  robe by L'academie (that also comes in a floral pattern).I wish I could find you guys the same deal on this robe that I got, but you know how thrifting goes! Luck of the draw): but I'm secretly happy about it! haha #sorrynotsorry. 

I love this casual look and am in love with these AGOLDE jeans. They are perfect dressed up or down. They are California casual at its best, and that's my absolute favorite way to dress...of course mixed with something eclectic. I love this look and highly recommend getting this robe if you like the robe or kimono look! Its amazing. Details and more pics below!

RETAIL SCORE #2: Vintage Palm Frond Dolce and Gabana

HI Ladies and happy Friday!

I wanted to share this look with you because I got this top Dolce and Gabana top for a steal! I am an avid vintage/consignment shopper and love to find a good deal. I was at Crossroads in West Hollywood and stumbled upon this super retro palm frond printed silk button up by D&G and had to have it.  It was only $60! If you're into fun printed tops, check some more out here and here.  I paired it with my favorite jeans of the moment by Reformation here and slingbacks I turned into mules by cutting off the strap, that I got from Shopbop. Similar here for a great price!

What are your favorite spots to get a deal? Let me know in the comments below!
