I wore this outfit yesterday to run up to 18th and Broadway to preview the new ED by Ellen (as in Ellen DeGeneres!) spring ’16 home and ready to wear collection. My favorite pieces were the gorgeous dark gray dinner plates, the indigo throw pillows and the marble cheese board, which aren’t available quite yet, but when they are I will be sure to share them with you! Afterward, I met up with a client for a quick chat about a new dress she is planning on wearing to an upcoming family event, before running home to meet up with Krystal to do some outfit shooting.
Originally I had on little ankle booties, but at the ED by Ellen preview, they were kind enough to gift me these gorgeous gray felt pumps, which I am obsessed with, so of course I wanted to wear them immediately. They are super comfortable too!
Can we also discuss this burgundy leather jacket? I spotted it at a Forever 21 preview last week and fell in love with it. It’s quite a bold shade but really pretty so I wanted to play off the richness of the color by pairing it with a scarf that had complimentary colors. It comes with a removable faux fur collar, which is the same color as the jacket. In this instance, I removed it, although I may wear the two together, but I actually think it will look really cool draped over a classic black overcoat for a dramatic touch.
Anyway, as you all know, this kind of outfit is my go-to look because it’s so easy to throw on and still feel put together. So with that said, I’m thinking about creating some collages recreating this type of outfit for you guys but in different color ways so you can also easily get the look! Would you guys be into that type of post? Let me know in the comments below!
Side note: I found this button down at Forever 21, but the only issue when shopping in the store versus online is sometimes I can’t find what I bought to share with you all! I have been searching and searching on the website but can’t seem to locate this top. So instead, I picked a bunch of similar styles that I like so hopefully you can recreate this outfit if you like it!
Happy Wednesday! Welcome back to The Weekly Edit. This series focuses on my favorite sites, highlighting my favorite pieces, and will change and rotate every Wednesday with different styles and price points, so hopefully there will be something for everyone. Happy shopping! xoxo
Today’s outfit is all about this colorful and fun skirt that I picked up at Forever 21. It actually comes with a matching crop top, which I love wearing together as well, but for this look I decided on a black tank instead. I love a summery floral pattern and this high-waisted skirt is cheerful and really comfortable.
I have been playing around with wearing crop tops lately and fitted skirts, but I still feel sort of self conscious when showing too much of my body (that’s just me!) so I opted for a flowy vest to throw on over the top to add a bit of coverage. I also feel like it helps tie the look together.
Today’s post features a fairly simple look I wore out to lunch with my Dad the other day. I created this outfit around these leather pants, which are my absolute favorite (I scored them 40 percent off at Nordstrom over Christmas!) and paired them with a striped turtleneck from Forever 21, my Everlane navy leather loafers and a bright red lip, courtesy of L’Oreal Paris’ long lasting lip color in Infallible Red.
It was a typical Seattle spring day, so I wore a mid-weight light wool overcoat from Zara over the top of the outfit along with my J.Crew inifinty scarf, just in case it got a little chilly.

Happy Sunday! So as many of you know, I’ve been working on a styling challenge with Forever 21 and was asked to create three looks to illustrate different parts of my day to day. I decided to share a few aspects of my work life – you can see the other two looks here and here – and for my third and final look, I chose to share what I would when I’m out and about attending evening press events and launch parties.
I like to dress up a bit more when attending these types of events and I loved this dress the minute I spotted it. But the thing is, I’ve never been very comfortable wearing a body con dress without some sort of jacket or blazer over the top, so in an attempt to feel more comfy, I paired it with a more casual camo shirt-jacket to take it down a notch. Plus it gave me a chance to have a little fun with pattern play!
