SPRING HAVEN

BRIGHTS AND WOOD
I took these last week with my dear friend Mandy during her short visit back home. My hectic schedule has really made me appreciate the few times I have for myself and are able to spend with quality friends. Thankfully since the sun goes down much later now, it provides ample amount of time for me to come home from work and enjoy the few hours of sun left in the day before hopping on school related meetings. I love spring and summer for the benefit of our days feeling much longer. What do you love most about spring?

CASUAL EDGE

DENIM AND LEATHER
Wearing some of my favorite staple pieces in my wardrobe. An oversized racerback tank, denim jacket and of course my go-to leather pants (also worn here & here). Sometimes it amazes me how I can get so much wear and versatility from certain articles of clothing compared to other articles of clothing in my closet. While this tank top definitely aint appropriate for the workplace, the loose feel and color keeps drawing me in, transitioning it to have become one of my favorite tank tops. What are some of your favorite go-to pieces in your wardrobe?

THE HYBRID SCARF

BY POSH'MINA
I'm always trying to find new innovative ways to wear a scarf and with Spring coming in it was perfect timing that the Posh'mina got introduced into my wardrobe. While scarfs have traditionally been worn around the neck for extra layers of warmth throughout fall and winter, the Posh'mina is versatile enough to be incorporated into your wardrobe all year long. The slotted sleeves in particular make it especially convenient to wear as a wrap or cardigan if desired. Although I'm not attending Coachella this year, Coachella would have served to be the perfect occasion to wear a hybrid scarf. Tip for all you Coachella go'ers this year. ;)

DENIM OVER PEPLUM

DAY TO NIGHT WEARI've been incredibly busy these past few weeks juggling full-time work with full-time school that it's become more of a luxury to squeeze time in my schedule for a blog shoot. Thus, this Saturday was the first time in a while where I actually had 2 hours of down time during the day. Right before dinner at Absinthe, me and Jason decided to stroll around the Conservatory of Flowers to take advantage of the gorgeous weather that's been landscaping all over the bay. This outfit ended up being the perfect transition from a dinner date outfit to a nightlife festivity outfit, and this denim jacket has seemingly become my favorite "dress-me-down" piece in my closet.
