Unlike the cold weather on the East Coast, the West Coast climate has been mostly sunny, with a high of 72 degrees (on a good day). As sad as it may sound and as much as I love the warm California weather, it rarely feels like we experience a true winter. The past few days have been much more brisk than the usual temperature. Mornings start out cold, but as the day continues the warm weather always evolves. Fortunately, I have been able to throw on skirts and dresses without having to wear leggings underneath. Normally I am drawn to solid colored bottoms, but back in November I bought this flirty, light weight, bow printed skirt at Forever21. The feminine detail on this shift skirt compelled me to throw it in the bag. The gloomy weather and gray skies that lingered throughout the day yesterday enticed me to add a pop of color to my outfit by throwing on my favorite cobalt blue coat from SheInside.
Broadly speaking, my weekday attire involves jeans and some sort of loose T-shirt, but last week I decided that I wanted to step it up a notch. I combined three of my favorite items all into one outfit. I purchased this stripe shirt about 6 months ago at Zara and I have worn it numerous times. This lightweight casual tee can be worn during any season which I love. Usually, I’m not a big fan of leather skirts, but this one from SheInside has quickly entered my rotation for bottom favorites. Since this flirty skirt is a basic black hue, it offers so much flexibility and it is the perfect transition piece from day wear to evening flare!

I used to be that person who when shopping would purchase the most extravagant items that I would only be able to be wear once or twice in a lifetime. These days, I look for staple pieces that can be used to build an outfit rather than make or complete an outfit. You can never have too many t-shirts in your closet but sometimes it’s difficult to find the perfect flattering tee. I recently discovered Everlane and instantly fell in love with their simple tees. Usually the typical cotton tee only looks crisp and clean during the first wear. The combination of Rayon and Polyester fabrics in the Everlane Tee, help to keep its original shape without shrinking or looking old and worn-out. Unlike most brand name labels, that have a tendency to mark up a simple t-shirt making it virtually impossible to afford, the Everlane shirts are affordable. The Tee prices range anywhere from $15.00-$25.00 each. This brand has quickly become one of my favorite places to shop for quality basics at a reasonable price!
