maniere de voir


Leathery jacket and pants can easily be an everyday occurrence for me. My suit if you will so naturally Maniere De Voir was needed in my monochrome wardrobe. Leathery goodness mixed with neoprene, laced up elements or reptilian textures - how can I say no? The details are just too good. Not sure what I am loving the most - the double collar action on the neoprene/leather jacket, the snake panels on the sleeves of the side slit tee or the tie-side pants. Pretty sure its a three-way tie, hence the outfit.

lulu*s | slit me up top




I'm a firm believer in having some solid staples in your wardrobe like this easy breezy tee from Lulu*s. Relaxed fit with some peek-a-boo side slits works day or night, dressed up or down. And of course the side slits make tees feel fresh and new again - why haven't we done this before? I foresee a reoccurring theme coming...

lulu*s | cropped sweater

I'm currently really loving this super cozy sweater from Lulu*s. Cropped and fuzzy, it layers perfectly over a camisole for these "chilly" LA days. The neckline comes up just high enough without entering turtleneck territory. Works so well with my crop versus long proportion. Finished off with some ripped jeans and we're talking about winter uniforms here.

currently craving: modern classic

This could easily be my everyday uniform. Jeans, tee, blazer, boots and just the right amount of accessories. Sounds all simple enough but course each piece has just a little something. Ripped jeans, sheer panel tee, croc bag, leather blazer, grommet ankle boots and a little shiny.

pinstripe & cutout shoulders


I admit this winter I've been on a slight coat rampage. I've had a handful of plaid coats and now I've added a pinstripe number form Yesstyle to the mix. Grey, striped and absolutely perfect, it's completely made for my monochrome wardrobe. This could possibly be the start of my revival love for pinstripes... 

Also currently in love with this cutout shoulder top from Asilio. So easy to dress up or down, the flower trim detail has a nice touch. It's been awhile since I've had a top with cutout shoulders which just felt fresh again. I've been gravitating toward this top anytime I don't know what to wear - or really I just want to wear it all the time.
