Cable Knit Crop

photo IMG_7943_zpse99ad884.jpg

A cable knit crop sweater. Seems like an oxymoron, huh? Why would one want to own a crop sweater when its’ main purpose is to keep one warm and cozy? Let’s ponder that question, shall we?. For fashion. That’s why. 

On this particular evening I layered my cable knit crop sweater over top a stripe Anthro favorite (last seen here) for a little intrigue to an otherwise simple outfit. I could seriously live in looks like this for the next couple of months. A gal sure can try!

Let me just say that now that I’ll be experiencing the full spectrum of the seasons that I’ll have to prepare myself for what’s ahead. Holy wind in the hair, Batman! On this particular day the fella and I attended a birthday dinner for a dear friend of ours and while I was excited for the low temps I was not prepared for the gusts of wind that came along with that. I guess I’ll have to get used to that, huh? 

On another note, drawstring pants. Best invention ever! These Karen Kane pants are like a pajama-dress pant hybrid. Pure perfect that will get me through the Fall, that’s for sure!

Black and Blue

I’m not a big fan of following fashion’s ‘rules’. No white after Labor Day? Sequin and sparkles only for the evenings? Never wear black and navy together? Let’s throw these ridiculous rules out the proverbial window, shall we? That very last rule, never mixing black and navy, is just so antiquated! News flash: rules are meant to be broken, especially this one! Both colors are neutrals thus making them free game when pairing them with other colors, especially each other. 

Pro Tip: Nervous to try the trend? Try a subtle pairing of opaque black tights, a navy dress and equestrian-esque boots for chic, yet simple look perfect for Fall!

In Memory

photo IMG_7378_zpsf7d6ad63.jpg

Nothing like a t-shirt dress, a little chambray, the perfect navy blazer and classic chucks to get you through day full day of sigh seeing. While many of the items I packed were great contenders for the MVP award, I’d have to say my trusty chambray won hands down. Seriously, it was incorporated into almost all of my SF looks! Chambray everyday for the win;)

On this particular day on our trip to San Francisco we did a ton of sight seeing. One of the stops in our adventures for the day was the Ms. Doubtfire house. Both the boy and I absolutely love the movie so it was a no brainer to stop and snap some pics. Tragically the next day news broke out that the comedic genius behind the movie and many more, Robin Williams, had passed. It’s so sad to know that someone you grew up watching and admiring is no longer here. I’m happy I was able to capture a tiny bit of my childhood and will keep the memory of the visit on those steps with me.
