As promised, I decided to take a step towards the softer side with my button down Soprano skirt. This time, I topped off the look with a Press Fashions knit, BC kitten heels, and Urban Expressions mini envelope clutch, (“Lucy” style in Pastel Pink).

As a 90’s child I lived through the Spice Girls whirlwind and will be a fan for the rest of my days. I owned the movie and the entire Barbie set. I typically relate to Posh Spice most, but I’m currently channeling Baby Spice with this look.
I’ve been eyeing this skirt style for a while now, but was reluctant to purchase the common colors provided at most stores- camel or denim. I have olive undertones and I’m pretty light skinned so camel isn’t quite right on me. I’m definitely open to purchasing a denim style, but wanted to recreate the look with a more neutral suede color. Blush has been my go-to this season and is easily one of my new favorite colors. I came across this cutie at the Grand Re-Opening of the Haight Street Ambiance and snatched it without hesitation.
This time I topped off the look with a black turtleneck and over the knee boots, but will be featuring this button down skirt with lighter Spring colors next.
As the weather warms up it has become increasingly difficult to incorporate turtlenecks into my Spring wardrobe. I was excited to see this turtleneck tank in the store in order to prevent sacrificing my favorite cut for the season. The deep, open, V on this top exudes sex appeal by revealing cleavage and the band across my neck juxtaposes an added mystery. I topped off the look with destroyed boyfriend jeans by Oneteaspoon and a blush leather bomber by BBDakota.
Contrary to it’s appearance this is not a matching set. Each item is from a different store! The cropped tank and mid-length maxi skirt are versatile- capable of being dressed up or down because the fabrics are casual, but darker colors automatically appear dressier. This leather jacket by H&M takes this combination up a notch, perfect for a weekend date night or a night on the town with the girls.
When I met up with photographer, Marvin Gomez, he had a specific vision; which included a fierce leather jacket. So of course I brought nearly every leather jacket I own. I took the plunge on purchasing this bomber a few years back when I first discovered I liked (and could wear) this shade of pink. Recently, I found this long sleeve crop from Brandy Melville and am excited to wear it as much as the weather permits. It’s easy to wear with high waisted leggings, as well as dress pants, or denim. I topped off the look withTimberlands I’ve had since 7th grade! Although blush is considered a delicate color, it’s safe to say this look is blushing with attitude.
I have been a fan of blush for as long as I can remember… whether it’s on my cheeks or in my closet. This season I wanted to add a tan or camel colored lapel coat to my wardrobe, however as I have olive undertones it is not an easy task. Many times I will fall in love with a tan or camel coat, but it doesn’t look quite right, especially without makeup. Since my main goal was to have a coat that would be versatile I chose an alternative neutral that better suits my coloring. This coat is from shein.com and was only about $35!
