Boyfriend Blazer x Oliver Peoples

The Boyfriend Blazer, adding to my collection of boyfriend things without the actual boyfriend part. Pair this blazer with a pretty blouse or a band tee when you're feeing too cool for school. Needless to say, I love its versatility. It's a sharp jacket that can look sleek and chic or cool and casual. 

While on the journey of making more and spending less, I decided to spend less on my eyeballs. I've gotten use to wearing daily contact lenses, which can really rack up a bill. And so I delve into the world of eyeglasses. Oliver Peoples was an easy decision. I love their branding, and the quality of their acetate frames are unparalleled. They plastic simply looks more dense and shinier than others. Clear frames are heavily trending and a fun way to change up your look, while saving monies!

Borrowed From The Boys

Jeans: Diesel (also worn here), Boxer Briefs: Versace-inspired from some Asian store, Hat: Cheap Monday (also worn here), Watch: Michael Kors, Shoes: BCBG |  Photos by David Soloman

It's warming up in San Francisco and God knows I love a crop top! For this look, I'm borrowing from the boys and rocking boyfriend jeans, "Versace" boxer briefs and a menswear-inspired watch. It's ironic how boyfriends hate boyfriend jeans. I find it a little sexist. Not everything a woman wears must be form-fitting! These jeans make me feel like a baddie and that's why I love them! I threw on a leather hat, adding another sporty element to this look and finished with white pumps for a chic little twist. It's a casual outfit, but sexy enough for a night out if you're brave enough to nix the standard clubwear dress. Certain clothes can make you feel different ways, may it be girly, professional or badass. Give this look a shot and see how it makes you feel!

For this shoot, I linked up with David Soloman, an amazing Nigerian photographer who was here on a business trip. One fun thing about fashion blogging is that every day is different and you never know who you're going to meet. For me, it's always enriching to get a glimpse of life through someone else's perspective. Beauty is all around us but happiness comes from within. In the words of Joan Crawford, "I have always known what I wanted and that was beauty... in every form." I'll leave you guys with that. Thanks for reading, guys, and Happy Monday!

A Classic Look: Black and White

Cold and gloomy weather can make this girl feel downright dreary, but winter days are slightly brighter in this stunning overcoat. Double-breasted lapels, padded shoulders and 100% cashmere—isn’t she just darling! With such an elegant structure, she can be worn over a night out with the girls, or over a pair of Levi’s and a white boyfriend tee while running errands during the day. For my outfit, I went with the classic black and white, with a pop of color on my handbag. Words can’t describe how much I adore this handbag. My philosophy: If I’m going to splurge on a purse, it should be anything but boring! Its shape is so modern yet classic. I love the playful color-blocking going on. Cream and orange pair beautifully, with contrasting black accents to make a statement. Looks so chic with super pointy white pumps! Enjoy your weekend, and thanks so much for reading!
