In With The Old – Reworking Your Existing Wardrobe

Trench coat: Old, similar here, Top: Urban Outfitters, Jeans: AG, Tote: Old Navy, Shoes: TOMS, Bracelets: Madewell, Necklace: Gorjana, Lipstick: Revlon in "Mauvy Night" As a blogger, there's an ongoing obligation to create fresh and inspiring content, and when it comes to fashion blogging, that often means feeling pressured to come up with new and unique outfits to keep up with the season's latest trends. Fortunately, I enjoy the process of shopping and styling outfits for the most part, but I also appreciate a more realistic approach to fashion - one that involves reusing existing pieces that can be reworked into a variety of outfits again and again. For starters,...

Summer Send-Off

Dress (on sale!): Available here and here (I'm wearing a size 8/small), Boots: Restricted Shoes (for 25% off, use code: ADORNED25), Purse: Old Navy (on sale!), Necklace: Etsy, Rings: Etsy, Lipstick: Rituel De Fille in the shade "Bittersweet" Fall is still over a month away, yet it feels like people have already begun the countdown in anticipation for crisp days, cozy layers and pumpkin spice lattes. Personally, I've always preferred summer to fall, so I find the change in season to be bittersweet. I'm never quite ready to retire my summer wardrobe when fall creeps up, and this year is no different. I...

Bomber Jacket: Who What Wear (wearing size small), Tank: Nordstrom, Jeans: Rag & Bone, Shoes: Zara, Bracelet: Nordstrom (similar here & here), Necklace: Gorjana It's odd to think that less than a week ago I was in Thailand practically living in bathing suits, and here I am just a few days later bundled up in sweaters. It's never easy returning home after a vacation, especially when trading tropical beach days for cold weather. But arriving home to all of the festive holiday decorations has made the transition much easier. I always say winter is my least favorite season, but as soon as the holidays roll around,...

Summer Meets Fall

Black Shift Dress
Fashion
Dress: Bella Luxx, Denim jacket: Zara (Similar here & here), Boots: Sam Edelman, Purse: Old Navy (Similar here), Bracelets: Forever 21 Every so often I'll acquire a piece of clothing that causes me to so neglect the rest of my closet, that I find it difficult to remember what I wore before it came into my life. And that is exactly what happened in the case of this shift dress. I knew it would be versatile, as most black dresses are, but I never imagine I'd wear it as often as I do. LA has been uncomfortably hot these last...

Fitting For Fall

Oversized sweater
Fashion
Sweater: Express, Bralet: Eberjey, Skirt: H&M (similar here, here  and here), Boots: Express (similar here and here), Purse: Old Navy, Bracelets: Madewell, Nail Polish: Essie in "Mink Muffs" You might associate a black mini skirt with something to be worn during warmer months, but I'm using mine even though the days have started to cool down. The leather-like material helps make this one perfect for fall, and it would work just as well in the winter simply by adding a pair of tights. I used to worry that black leather would come off too edgy for day wear, but a neutral sweater instantly softens the look. Top it...
