I looked at my calendar today and I could not believe it was the last day of November.  The days are just flying by.

These photos were taken by my talented photographer friend Robert Sosa.  Follow him on Instagram here.  These were shot in Sonoma about a month ago I think.  It was such a hot day...which is quite the contrast to how chilly it was today.  I miss the heat so much.

Leopard Print Coat / Wear to Work

Leopard Print Coat 1 Leopard Print coat 2 Leopard Print Coat 3 Leopard Print Coat 4 Leopard Print Coat 5 Leopard Print Coat 6 Leopard Print Coat 7 Leopard Print Coat 8 Wearing:
Bebe t shirt
Joe's Jeans
Topshop faux fur leopard print swing coat
Forever 21 choker set
Jimmy Choo pumps (low heel)
Tarte lipstick
Vintage leather purse
Tarte "Racy" Lippie Lingerie

Location: Sonoma, Ca

I've worn this outfit a couple of times already.  What I usually do during the winter if I don't have a lot of time to think about what to wear in the morning or I'm in a rush, I just wear an all black outfit and a different coat or cardigan.  I also wear different accessories.  You can put together so many different looks with just a basic black t shirt and black pants or jeans.

Also, I'm wearing a new lipstick from Tarte.  I've never worn any of their products before but I really liked this color.  And I love that they're cruelty free.  I'm slowly transitioning and making sure all of my beauty purchases are vegan.

These pictures were taken on the first day of Fall.  It's been about two months since my last post, so I thought I'd update you guys with some outfit pictures.

Until a few days, the weather here has been spring like and warm.  So for many of you this outfit will be weather inappropriate.  But for those of us here in California, it kind of isn't.

If you follow me on Instagram, you've already seen this outfit :)

Hope you're all having a lovely weekend so far <3

Forever 21 striped crop top

Keds
Urban Decay Bad Blood lipstick

Location: San Francisco, Ca

Even though I've passed through this beautiful bridge hundreds of times, I only have a few photos of myself on the vista point.  And those photos are over 10 years old.  So we took some quick photos on a foggy (and windy) afternoon.  It was a beautiful day in the city.

Have a wonderful week <3

3D Flowers / What to Wear to a Wedding

3D Floral Dress 1 3D Floral Dress 2 3D Floral Dress 3 3D Floral Dress 4 3D Floral Dress 5 3D Floral Dress 6 3D Floral Dress 7 3D Floral Dress 8 3D Floral Dress 9 Wearing:
ASOS Salon 3D Floral Pink Crop Top Midi Dress
Dolce and Gabbana almond flower sunglasses
Nine West pumps (old)
Kate Spade purse

This dress was kind of hard to photograph.  I think it was just the time of day we took the photos at.  But trust me, it looks more lovely in person.  I was absolutely smitten when I saw it on the ASOS website.  The 3D flowers are just the cutest combination with the faux crop top.

If I were in high school, I would have worn this dress to homecoming.  Afterall, homecoming is just around the corner.  To be honest I'd find any excuse just to wear this dress.  But I do think that this is the perfect dress to wear to a wedding in the spring or summer.

Ruffle Turtle Neck & Vintage Corduroy

Ruffle Turtle Neck 1 Ruffle Turtle Neck 2 Ruffle Turtle Neck 3 Ruffle Turtle Neck 4 Ruffle Turtle Neck 5 Ruffle Turtle Neck 6 Ruffle Turtle Neck 7 Ruffle Turtle Neck 8 Ruffle Turtle Neck 9 Ruffle Turtle Neck 10 Wearing:
Vintage corduroy jacket w/ ditsy floral print
ASOS turtle neck with frill neck and sleeves
Topshop skirt
Bebe pumps
Dolce and Gabbana clutch
Mac Captive lipstick

Here's another vintage piece from my mother.  There are actually pictures of her wearing this jacket in the mid 80s.  I'm not sure how old the jacket is or how long she had it for prior to the photographs.  But it gives me that late 70s, early 80s vibe.  It kind of reminds me of something a character from Stranger Things would wear.

I feel like I should have worn a different purse or clutch.  Sometimes I think an outfit is cute as is until I look back at the photos.  But this is what I actually wore that day, so whatever :)

Vintage Red Dress

Vintage Red Dress 1 Vintage Red Dress 2 Vintage Red Dress 3 Vintage Red Dress 4 Vintage Red Dress 5 Vintage Red Dress 6 Vintage Red Dress 7 Wearing:
Vintage red floral dress
Dolce and Gabbana almond flower sunglasses (tortoiseshell)
Topshop sandals
Barney's wicker bag
YSL Ultimate Beige lipstick

I wore this outfit when I went out for lunch and a leisurely stroll.  This is the first time this vintage dress has made an appearance on my blog.  I love vintage items.  Especially ones that came from my mom.  She handed this to me some years ago and I fell in love.  It's just so sweet and feminine.  And what I love even more is that there is a little bit of family history woven into it.

Hope you guys have a great weekend.  Thank you for reading :)
