Pink Trench + Stripes

Thursday, October 20, 2016

 Like everyone else I'm obsessed with Fall; cozy fires, changing leaves, pumpkin pie (my fave) and of course Fall attire, but I also love that year round we can get away with wearing just about anything living in San Diego.  Case in point, I'm wearing a halter dress, open toed strappy heels and when that chill kicks in I just toss on a light trench, did I mention it's almost November and we're still in the high 80's.  Today is actually suppose to get up to 96*  I mean, what?!  I'm about to hide in the shade and pretend it's in the low 50's!  
So more than likely I'll be carrying this trench around until the sun goes down but of course I had to show you the full effect of this outfit!  
I've noticed when people typically reach for a trench coat they stick to a neutral tone, which is great and goes with everything, but why not step outside the box and reach for a color that's still very chic, girly and Fall appropriate.  And don't worry if pink isn't your color, this trench also comes in black!  

On to the rest of my OOTD!  I've been loving halter tops lately, as you can see here, and couldn't pass up this striped little number for a date night out with Rick.  He's a sucker for my curves and this shows off the right amount!  :)  I also added my pink strappy heels (that are on major sale) to compliment the trench and before leaving the house I always add a little VIBRANCE to my hair to maintain that healthy shine!

Are you a fan of the trench coat?!  Do you want to see how I'd style the black trench?  Let me know!!  xo Vanessa

I Don't Give a Chic

Monday, October 17, 2016

I don't give a chic...about Monday's!  Ok so that may not be entirely true, but it certainly gets your attention.  Just like this adorable I Don't Give a Chic Tee!  I actually don't mind Monday's.  It's the day you're supposed to reset and get back on track from all the things you messed up on over the weekend.  LOL  This past weekend was another busy one.  Between surprising my fiance with tickets to the home opener of the Gulls hockey game Friday night, and a trip out to Palm Springs we managed to find some time to go costume shopping!  Halloween is special to me because it happens to be my baby sisters birthday, which that explains a lot....haha sorry sis!  So for my family we always go all out because we're celebrating two occasions!  For this reason I've always LOVED dressing up and it just so happens that Rick and I have an event to attend in addition to my family's party, so I decided on two different costumes, because why not!!  I can't wait to show you guys what they are!!  Any guesses?  What are you planning on dressing up as?

As for today's OOTD.  At the recent FWSD event I got to meet the amazing designer behind Killem With Chic, and she sent me a couple of her chicy tees so of course I had to share them with you!  1.  These tees are incredibly soft and fit amazing well.  I'm super picky with t-shirts and this is a winner!  2.  They all have catchy phrases you can't help but laugh or smile at!  

Since I like to dress down while out running errands this was the perfect jeans and tee look.  I added a burgundy faux leather jacket for some color and a pair of flat over the knee boots for an added touch of chic and of course I always finish out my hair routine with VIBRANCE!

I hope you had a wonderful weekend as well!  xo Vanessa

Sweater Weather

Thursday, October 13, 2016

It's starting to feel like Fall in these parts of San Diego...about freaking time too!  I'm all for Summer but come on it's hard to go to the pumpkin patch when it's 90* outside.   I have so many blanket scarves, jackets and boots that are begging to be worn and today it finally dipped into the 60's (that's cold around here, haha) so that calls for sweaters and boots.  

While it's still a little warm during the day a sleeveless sweater is just what the weather ordered.  I actually bought this sleeveless turtleneck sweater back when Nordstrom was having their anniversary sale (they have black and white available if olive is not for you) but I will say this color is great on darker skin tones.  The top itself is really comfortable and lightweight but still gives you the warmth you need!  I added a pair of leggings, and while I don't condone these as pants, IF you're wearing a top that's long enough to cover your booty you're good to go!  I couldn't leave the house and wander the streets without wearing my new favorite SPY sunnies.  These are also perfect for days where you don't feel like putting on makeup and you have to run to the store.  Glasses on and it covers the dark circles.  Life saver!  LOL
I also really love these Tommy Hilfiger boots which are really quite comfortable, I actually have them in two colors ;)

What types of Fall looks are you looking forward to wearing or is there an outfit or style you'd like me to put together?!  I'm here for you!!  xo Vanessa
