Geometrix

Being all of 5’4 and a bit petite, I usually write-off jumpsuits and maxi dresses completely for fear of swimming in layers of fabric. But, as with anything, finding the right fit for your body type is key.

I found this incredible jumpsuit on a day shopping around San Francisco with my mom while she was in town visiting. We had been popping in and out of some of my favorite boutiques in the city (will do a post on these soon!), and I was striking out while she was hitting it out of the park finding some stunning pieces (think white summer silk capelets!). I had all but given up when I stumbled upon this jumpsuit and the fit was nearly perfect. With the addition of a structured belt to give some shape, and a tapered heel (my trick to not tripping over the wide legs), the jumpsuit has now become a staple.

While this is an ideal outfit for a big event or a night out, sometimes a fresh haircut is all the inspiration you need to get a little bit more dressed up for a beautiful day exploring around San Francisco!

Sometimes the greatest classics are those hidden deep within your closet. For me this New Year is about reinvigorating those rarely seen staples with a touch of something new. It’s easy to limit ourselves to a short rotation of our latest sartorial infatuation leaving out timeless pieces. So, I’m always excited at the rediscovery of an old favorite like these red plaid pants. Paired with leather OTK boots and a white silk blouse, it’s the perfect look for bustling around the city. Or, dress them up with a rich, deep scarlet lace blouse like this one and black lace up heels like these for a beautiful Valentine’s Day look.

While it doesn’t quite feel like a true October yet here (hello 7 straight 90 degree days), my brain has already made the mental shift towards Fall. Call me basic, but I truly believe October is one of the most cherished months of the year. We trade in our swim suits, and subsequent Summer diets, for cozy, enveloping layers, flopping fedoras, and tall boots meant for traipsing through pumpkin patches with pumpkin spiced lattes firmly fixated to hands. It’s a time for wrapping up in one of Fall’s chicly fringed coats to tailgate and cheer on your favorite football team to victory. And for those with an aversion to color, it’s one of the only times of the year you can get away with wearing head-to-toe black in favor of the Halloween month, or just to match a Monday mood. 

So in honor of this serendipitous month, here are my top picks for an expertly-styled October. Please enjoy the crisp Fall air and cozying up in these beautiful pieces. Here in California, we will be shielding ourselves from the heat wave indoors with apple pie-scented candles, air conditioner blasting, and that DirecTV fake fireplace scene “crackling” in the background. 

Handbag Organization

Though I usually carry the same purse and workbag for a good 4 month stretch, I often like to trade out different styles of carryall clutches. Between work, travel, and splitting time amongst 2 different cities, it’s easy for my favorite YSL highlighter, coveted eos balm, or one and only Sharpie pen to get lost in the deep abyss that is my handbag. So, to quickly and easily shift between bags and keep my favorite items organized within one convenient spot, I’ve been collecting my fair share of clutches. Here are fun 5 clutches to help you stay organized and add some variety to the everyday bag. 

Winter Uniform

We all have “those” jeans or boots that we put on by default and, no matter what, they always feel right. With this mild winter (in Oklahoma it’s called Spring), skinny black jeans and light-weight knitted sweaters have been my winter uniform. My favorite part about these jeans is the coating that mimics the leather pant trend right now, while still allowing you to make sudden movements without embarrassingly compromising seams. Wrap up in a beautiful coat (like this one), pile on the statement jewelry, and no one will ever know you’re on day 6 of your “winter uniform.”
