Springing Forward

Anyone else read that this is the first official week of spring? Or, was it next week? Basically every year after DST I know that spring is upon us. A part of me is so excited to bring out my florals and sandals, but the other part of me is sad to see my ankle booties and fur collars go. I adore winter fashions (I know how funny that sounds coming from a Californian)...but out with the old and in with the new!

This weekend, I got to enjoy some sunny, yet windy weather this weekend in Huntington Beach and a couple of other fun spots in Orange County and Los Angeles. Wearing 1 shirt, I mixed and matched it with 2 pairs of bottoms, 2 pairs of shoes, and 2 purses because, like SoCal weather, I can be pretty indecisive! Hope this post will give you some ideas on different ways to style your everyday outfits for FUNction.

Style 1: Cuffed up jeans, Gold-chained sequin purse, with strappy, peeptoe sandals
STYLE 1: 
Clothing: Chiffon v-neck- Ross (on sale for $8.99!), Cuffed jeans- Vigoss denim from Loehmann's
Accessories: Antique gold chain bracelet- Urban Outfitters, Alligator (or is it Crocodile??) bangle- flea market, Key necklace- Tiffany & Co., Gold-chained sequin purse- thrifted
Shoes:  Suede, peeptoe sandals- Olsenboye Dakota
Style 2: Cuffed up jeans, metallic leather satchel, with sparkly flats


STYLE 2: 
Clothing: Chiffon v-neck- Ross (on sale for $8.99!), Cuffed jeans- Vigoss denim from Loehmann's
Accessories: Antique gold chain bracelet- Urban Outfitters, Alligator (or is it Crocodile??) bangle- flea market, Key necklace- Tiffany & Co., Metallic leather satchel- COACH Flagship Caroline dowel (70th Anniversary edition) similar here
Shoes: Sparkly flats- Steve Madden I-Dreemy in blush
Style 3: Floral shorts, Gold-chained sequin purse, with strappy, peeptoe sandals



STYLE 3: 
Clothing: Chiffon v-neck- Ross (on sale for $8.99!), Cropped tank top & shorts- CottonOn
Accessories: Antique gold chain bracelet- Urban Outfitters, Alligator (or is it Crocodile??) bangle- flea market, Key necklace- Tiffany & Co., Gold-chained sequin purse- thrifted
Shoes: Suede, peeptoe sandals- Olsenboye Dakota

I hope you enjoyed this look, and I plan on posting another "Battle of the Brands" on the sandals I wore in this post. For those of you unfamiliar with that series, "Battle of the Brands" is something I created where I write about a trend (i.e. rose gold watches or suede ankle booties) and show you where you can get the style for less, or more, depending on your budget and needs! Designers really do "battle" in a sense, for your business, hence the name. Just something for to look out for!
