Red, Red, Red!

Tuesday, May 28, 2013

While browsing the Net-A-Porter sale this afternoon, a few things became very apparent to me. One being, that there are an abundance of red shoes that are on sale that are insanely awesome. The other being, (I'm embarrassed to admit this) that I do not own a pair of red shoes. I did own a pair from Zara, but the heel broke off a few months back. My first instinct is always classic when it comes to shoes, and unfortunately, the pumps and boots from Saint Laurent are the only two in this bunch that are not on sale. Next in line would be the Alexander Wang sandals, but guess what? I had them in my cart, and poof! just like that, someone beat me to the punch. I always snooze and lose. 

Happy Wednesday!

I'd been saving this white two-piece look for months, and I was feeling matchy-matchy last night, so I took advantage of the mood and warmth, and went with it. However, the temperature dropped and I froze towards the end of the evening, and forgot to bring my jacket. Total Jen move. Luckily, my boyfriend acted as my jacket the entire walk home. On a side note, I have the matching skirt to this top as well. Saving it for something special just not quite sure what yet. 

Happy almost Sunday!

I've officially been in flats for three days straight, and my toes are thanking me for taking my SL boots out of the line-up this week. They're gorgeous, but they hurt like a son of a gun. No new shiny toys today. Everything that I'm wearing has been recycled through the blog a few times. You might actually see me in this blazer again next week, because I'm planning on pairing it with my red shorts from Bec & Bridge. At last, I will be able to wear the matchy-matchy red suit that I've talked about in at least five different posts, but who's counting? 

Happy Friday!

Super casual errand running meeting kind of Tuesday. Wow, that was a tongue twister. I managed to make two meetings and get three inches of my hair lopped off before noon. I wore my favorite destroyed IRO tee which I wore a few posts back, and these new camo shorts from Guess. Topped those off with my old reliable chuck t's and my favorite cross body bag. Which reminds me! I receive a lot of mail in regards to the strap that I use for my Balenciaga city bag. It's actually a longer strap from a velo bag. They should really start selling the longer strap as an option. 

Happy Wednesday! 

Puerto Rico Photo Diary

Monday, May 20, 2013

Last month, I had the amazing opportunity of traveling with the Juicy Couture team to Rincon, Puerto Rico, to capture the behind the scenes of their Juicy Summer Escape campaign whilst enjoying my own personal weekend escape. In just two days, I learned to surf, did a little beach yoga, and was immediately initiated into the Juicy Couture family as if they were my own. It also didn't hurt that we were accompanied by a top notch production team, and the most gorgeous subject matter, model LouLou Robert. My Rincon trip and the Juicy team will always hold a dear place in my heart. I hope you enjoy my captures on the magical island of Rincon, Puerto Rico. Additionally, if you would like to view the entire campaign, you can do so here.

Statement Sunglasses

Saturday, May 18, 2013

I've been dreaming about these vintage Chanel sunnies ever since I saw them on the likes of Rihanna and Mary-Kate Olsen a few years back. I even watched a pair on eBay that ended for way north of four grand which is crazy to me for a pair of sunnies, but a girl can dream, right? If I were ever to get my hands on a pair, I'd style them simply with a tee and denim as shown above. Wildfox makes a fun alternative for much less. Maybe I'll them a go. 

Hope you're having a rad weekend!

I recently teamed up with Nordstrom by putting together a look from their newly revamped Savvy department. From my in store shopping experience, the prices are definitely more accessible, making Savvy a more affordable option for on trend pieces. They've also added a few of their own in house brands, Leith and Tildon, which I'm wearing above. Great news if you're a fan of mixing highs and (high quality) lows like myself!

Happy Wednesday! 

Shirt Dress

Schlepped around to meetings in this comfy shirt dress and my beloved Saint Laurent boots today. Switched out my boots for chucks directly after the meetings. Ended the day with my favorite Mexican spot downtown, La Puerta. Meanest bean and cheese burrito on the planet, and I even have leftovers for lunch tomorrow! 

Hope your week's off to a rad start! 

All Black

(Sunglasses - Ray-Ban, Top - Lovers + Friends, Bag - Yves Saint Laurent, Belt - Isabel Marant, Denim - Genetic, Boots - Saint Laurent)

Not very spring appropriate, but I've been craving all black ensembles lately. I blame it on the California "May Gray" weather that we've been experiencing. I wore two black newbies yesterday, this killer stud top from Lovers + Friends (convincing myself that I need it in white now) and this pair of genetic denim that is easily becoming my new favorite. My new Saint Laurent boots have been conveniently glue to my feet since they arrived on Friday. Best boot purchase, ever! 

Happy Sunday!

My Saint Laurent dream boots arrived today! They're a great classic that'll definitely give my much loved Louboutin pigalle pumps a break every now and again. There are so many other SL styles that I'm coveting right now. They pretty much take the cake in shoes when it comes classic silhouettes this season. I wore them with all recycled pieces with the exception of this new destroyed tee from IRO.

Happy weekend! 

Statement Accessories

Wednesday, May 8, 2013

I was browsing on Farfetch over this past weekend, and stumbled across these Saint Laurent boots that I have been lusting over for months. They had one size 40 in smooth leather for a fraction of what they are going for on competitive sites. I purchased them and this insanely awesome Iro dress that was also too good to pass up. When they arrive, I'm hoping to reproduce the look above, as I have all similar pieces minus the belt. All of my belts are pretty bland, so a red statement belt in definitely next on my list. I'm on lockdown for thirty days — hopefully my size is still available then! 

Happy Thursday!

Flats - Charles Philip)

Charles Phlip definitely knows how to make a fabulous pair of shoes. They're comfortable yet still super stylish, making this designer my new favorite when it comes to flats. I schlepped around in this comfy ensemble for a little errand running on Saturday. Oh, to live in denim, button-ups, and flats — that would be a comfortable life. Maybe a little monotonous, boring, but nonetheless, always classic and comfortable. On a different note, I managed to sleep more this weekend than I have in the previous nine days combined. Now that's a lot of catching up. I love my sleep! 

Have a wonderful week!
