In Stripes

Some days, you just want a no fuss, no brainer outfit. Something just to get you out of the door quickly, while still looking put together. Knowing your closet and having your no nonsense essential clothing items help on days when you're feeling a little stumped with what to wear.

A striped tee is a staple in my closet. I really like this James Perse shirt that I found at my Nordstrom Rack because of the deep V-neckline. It's even cuter when worn with a lace bralette (this one is super cute too) underneath just slightly peeking through.

I've paired my V-neck shirt (I also like this shirt) with a moto faux leather skirt to for an edgy look. In this outfit, I love how the skirt plays as the feminine touch to a slightly tomboy-ish outfit.

And with the latest sneaker trend still going on strong, I'm staring to dig out more of my sneakers out of their boxes and incorporate them with more of my outfits. I'm really liking the whole very feminine and flirty while still being comfortable and a bit boy-ish look. It's really all about how you mix and match your pieces together. So, why not have it work for your comfort.

Side note, I recently just discovered the amazing selection of Dogeared necklaces available at Nordstrom Rack! I have a few dainty necklaces from the brand, and I'm really excited to find that they're over 50% off retail at Nordstrom Rack. I usually wear them alone, but I also like layering them together. Below are some of my favorites:

Black and Tan

Forever 21 muscle tee / Suede shorts / Birkenstocks sandals / Wildfox sunglasses / Urban Outfitters bralette / Dogeared necklace 1 and necklace 2

This has been my summer uniform last summer (you know, since it's technically fall now). Shirt + shorts + Birkenstocks = out the door. Since this past summer was probably the hottest I've ever experienced, wearing a loosely fit muscle tee was the least scandalous way for me to almost not wear anything. It's drapey and it has plenty of arm room (more airflow coming in). It's also a cute way to show off my bralette.

Silk Tee and Laced Skirt

I'm currently in the process of cleaning out my closet, and I'm also rediscovering certain pieces that I haven't worn in a while as go through it. This shirt might look familiar to you since I've worn it in this post, and this skirt was featured on this post.

What I've also been wearing frequently lately are my old sneakers. For some reason, wearing sneakers reminds me of high school since that's all I would wear at the time. I mean can you just imagine walking to your next class in heels? Not that practical. I still had some of my old sneaker collection at my parents' house, so I decided to bring those back in the rotation as well.

Do you have any old clothing items that's making a come back in your wardrobe?

Jersey Dress

Forever 21 shirt dress / denim jacket / Birkenstocks sandals / Celine Nano bag (similar) / Dogeared necklace

The official first day of Autumn doesn't begin until a week from today, but it's starting to get nippy already! I'm slowly starting to take out my light-weight jackets to keep me warm.

I'm still very much into dresses these days, and I've been some what living in this jersey shirt dress lately. I quickly realized how versatile this dress has been and not to mention uber comfortable. They almost feel like pajamas to me. That just seems like a super win to me.

'Cause you make me feel like...

Concert season is officially over for me this year. For every concert I've been to, I normally buy a shirt to remember the night. I've previously featured a different Bruno Mars concert tee before on my blog, and this shirt was from the second time I saw him live.  I decided to cut this one up to give it a more edgy vibe.

My concert outfit would usually consist of something similar to this. I used to wear heels (yes, crazy, I know) to these events until I realized that it's not really the most practical or comfortable (duh). After one painful night of wearing heels for hours, I decided to just with wear flats or sneakers especially since I spend most of my time on my feet, dancing.

Suede Shorts

August has officially passed, and fall is around the corner. One of the pieces in my closet that will transition in the fall are these suede shorts that I bought for Coachella earlier this year. Since LA doesn't really get fall season like the east coast does, wearing these shorts won't be an issue.

As I browse around the mall or look around online, I noticed that anything suede goes for this fall season. So I'm glad that these shorts will make through another season.
