tobi maxi skirt

This sneaker kick has me revisiting style combinations that I swore by as a teenager. Sounds super weird but I actually never wore jeans in high school. But I did wear a lot of long skirts with bomber jackets so basically this outfit. So excited to find this maxi skirt on Tobi - slightly draped with high slit. The long lean lines combined with a puffy bomber jacket makes for perfect contrast.

na-kd fashion dress + windsor smith sneakers

The perfect fitted dress but not too fitted. I love this jersey dress from Na-kd with it's sporty flair and simple silhouette. Basically, the perfect everyday dress especially when styled with sneakers.

suited up

Shorts and blazer is a pretty common combination for me. It just works so well together - especially with an oversized blazer and sneakers. This blazer is from Zara and has many appearances here on the blog and on instagram. Even after a few months, I've still obsessed with it and thankful I bought two of them. You know, just in case...

styling sneakers 101 with windsor smith

In case you haven't noticed, I've been obsessed with sneakers lately. It reminds me of my high school days when I was wearing sneakers non-stop with long skirts, bomber jackets, mini skirts and oh yes, my middle school uniform. A skort and polo shirt. 

It feels refreshing with all of my outfits to dress them down - with a minimalist factor, of course. One of my favorite ways to style sneakers is with dresses - as seen in outfits 1 and 3. Dresses are usually too "girly" for me so with sneakers, it's just right. It works with flowy dresses or fitted ones. Tones down the girly and the sexy to just plain cool. 

I'm also a fan of blazer dressing - no surprise there. And I've always previously paired blazers with booties or heels (though never pumps) but now, sneakers just make it feel more effortless and relaxed - which is exactly what I am craving lately.

art dept + windsor smith

I've been collecting dresses like I have never before lately and this one is one of my new faves. From Art Dept clothing, the asymmetrical hemline is nothing new but the way this one drapes, I'm sold. I love how effortless this dress feels - especially with high top sneakers. Adding on a chunky crystal necklace keeps it perfectly balanced in my book.

transitioning with coats and shorts

One of my favorite outfit silhouettes - coats with shorts. I love taking advantage of Cali's mild weather (when it feels like being mild) and wearing this combo - it's quite perfect for transition season. It's warm but not too warm. And with sneakers - this comes together quite perfect.

Anyway, I love easy going outfits - this one made effortless with this two-tiered top from Elliatt and these amazing platform sneakers from Axel Arigato.

elliatt | rip tide top

I always love the idea of pairing something girly with boyfriend jeans for balance. In this case, this neoprene top from Elliatt. It's sweet flared out silhouette just works so well with the loose vibes of the jeans. Add on a bomber jacket and it's the perfect combo of girly, boyfriend and effortless.
