This is one of my favorite recent looks. First of all, i love these pants from Forever 21, they are Harem style and are similar cut to some of the high-street designs. They are a light and loose fabric so they are great for the hot Southern California weather and especially when transitioning from summer to fall; as we are doing now. This is a vintage Blazer also made of light linen fabric and the black and white pattern allows me to pair it with soooo many things including my colored jeans.
These shoes are old, I got them from Zara about 7 years ago !! and the reason i still have them is because of their classic shape and color. I'm a big believer of keeping shoes if you can answer yes to these following questions:
1. Are they in good physical shape (not worn out or damaged)
2. Do they have a timeless color: Black, White, Red, Brown, etc...
3. Are they a solid color (no patterns or color mixes )
4. Do they have a classy, timeless shape (non-trendy design)
My only other old pair are my cream Ann Taylor Shoes that are 11 years old !! And as you can see they follow my rules above. Here they are again:

This look is inspired by the crazy, funky outfits i saw that came out of Paris fashion-week. All the stylish show-goers get photographed more than the models that walk the runway in the actual shows !!! Its totally awesome !! anyway, i intend to add a reading list of blog i follow in the near future, so stay tuned.

(Blazer: Ann Taylor, Gray T: Mossimo, Pants: Cynthia Rowley, Shoes: Zara, Salvatore Ferragamo)
One of my favorite style inspirations are French women, they dress super simple and yet always so chic. They always wear structured clothes, you won't ever see them in a shape-less T-shirt and flip-flops. This outfit is inspired by them, as so many of my outfits are.

How awesome is this bracelet???? I fell in in love with it when i first saw it and have been wearing it obsessively ever since. I like it because it has that chic and high fashion neon color and with a classy touch of gold on the clasp and on the bow. Its something that reminds me of the juicy-couture type girly jewelry which i've always loved.
This outfit is one of my typical work-outfits....I'm a huge fan of jackets lately, i've taken all my jackets to the front of the closet so that they can be on constant rotation, and that's why i can't wait for the weather to finally cool down, so that i will actually NEED a jacket :-)
