The basic black tee has been one of my wardrobe staples for as long as I can remember. Growing up in San Francisco I always kept a black tee or sweater handy to pull over a dress as soon as the fog rolled in. This trick also works well this time of year in LA as a handy way to transition a summery dress to a cute skirt.
I’m currently on the prowl for a perfect black crew-neck sweater to replace the one from Target that I’ve loved and worn for the past 5 years straight. I’ve got a few long-sleeve tee’s (all from Target) that I wear year round – here’s an example from this summer – but as temperatures drop, I really need something heavier.
As you may have noticed, I tried to do something with my hair today! This was actually supposed to be a beehive-meets-French twist but it didn’t quite work. One of my ‘girlie goals’ for this season is to learn how to do things with my hair. I put a call in to my Mom after this shoot and got some great advice so I’ll be working on that in the coming days.
Tee: Target. Dress: Clover Canyon. Heels: Target. Jewelry: a mix of thrifted, Forever 21, estate sales plus the Greek key bangle is from a trip to Mykonos in 2011 and the silver ‘wave’ bangle was bought on the beach in Cabo San Lucas in 2010 (jewelry and bags are my favorite souvenirs). Lips: Rimmel Kate Moss Matte in #111.
I’ve received so many sweet emails and comments on my Instagram account – thank you all so much! One of my favorite things about blogging is meeting and connecting with all of you xoxoxo
