Fashion Resolution: A Capsule Wardrobe

Happy Friday!  And happy first pay day of the year for some of us!  Speaking of pay day...this year, I'm trying not to shop so much!  To achieve this, I'm focusing on cleaning up my style and buying minimalist, staple pieces to form a capsule wardrobe.  I always wear neutrals and almost never wear prints. Boring I know, but when something works for you, you stick with it!

What are your wardrobe staples? Share some picks with me.  Do you have any closet goals for the new year?

Hi Everyone!

It's been super warm in Southern CA lately, so all i've been wearing are sandals and sundresses. Asos had a great sale recently so I picked up a few.  Here's my latest look and thanks for waiting as I get back into blogging after my hiatus.  You guys mean so much to me!

My dress is from Asos (on sale for $20!), my earrings are from j.crew (similar) and my shoes are the "Rosanna" sandal by Steve Madden from Nordstrom.  On my lips I'm wearing Nars Lipstick in Damage.


Hope you all have a lovely weekend!  I'm off to Europe tomorrow so follow me on instagram to keep up with my adventures!  I can't wait to share it all with you <3

Hi hunnies,

This past weekend I took a break from bar studying to brunch at The District by Hannah An in LA.  It was so yummy and I'm planning to re-create some of the food I had in a later post. Anyways, I was super excited to actually get dressed and put makeup on because (TMI!), right now I don't shower or wear anything but sweats.  I know, I know, bar prep is super glam.  Lucky you though, you get to see me look like a real human ;) For my friends who see me otherwise, thanks for loving me anyways <3

This is my "I am so happy it's sunny and we're drinking guava mimosas and I see the food coming" smile.  Just so you know how happy food and sunshine makes me.

I'm wearing a striped linen shirt from J. Crew Factory (on sale for $24.50!), a skinny leather belt by J. Crew (similar here), 7 for All Mankind Jeans, and wedges from Seychelles (similar here). Excuse my Asian glow.  These were taken post-mimosa.  Pro Tip: remember to take Pepcid-AC and you won't turn red when you drink.   I forgot mine.  Oops.

My sunnies are from Nordstrom's BP department.  They're sold out but these ones are really cute!  (I may have just picked them because they're named "Ipso Facto" and I'm a HUGE law nerd right now.  Sorry...) I'm wearing a bracelet by Tory Burch.  My bag is "Celine influenced" and a similar one can be found here

I hope y'all are having a good week and that you get to go to brunch this weekend! Talk to me on twitter or instagram, or even e-mail me!  Hearing from all of you makes my day and let's be real, I'm in need of some serious social contact here in my study cave.  Love you!
