How To: Sweatshirt Chic

hbz-street-style-pfw-ss13-100112-203-lgn_Kenzo Sweatshirt

One of the easiest, chicest looks these days that’s not only cute, but comfortable, involves a sweatshirt. The comfy piece that you’re used to wearing on the couch, is now acceptable at work, during the day or night, and actually ENCOURAGED when brunching.

Now, what to do and how to wear the sweatshirt is where it get’s tricky. One of my favorite looks is shown above, with a flirty skirt (or skirt worn as a dress), boots, and chunky necklace. It’s flirty and fun but not overdressed. It’s great for day time and can be worn at night with tights and jacket. Not only will everyone think you’re adorable, you’ll be comfortable, all day! I’m sharing a few more looks with you below and a few pieces for you to shop the look. XO

The Edit: Fashion Finds Under $50

1 // 2 // 3 // 4 // 5 // 6 // 7 // 8  // 10

Happy Holidays, friends! I hope you all had a fantastic Christmas with family and loved ones. I spent mine in San Diego in 80 degree weather! I couldn’t believe it, but then again I could, because that’s Souther California for you.  I enjoyed it but I’ve always wanted a white snowy Christmas! Maybe one year. :)

I’ve been searching the internet high and low for some of the best deals for after Christmas. It’s the time of year where retailers literally mark everything down and try to get their season’s product to move as fast as possible. It’s THE best time to buy.

Sole Society Booties: To start, I’ve been eyeing these booties in cobalt blue for a couple months now and haven’t made the purchase. They are now marked down to $40, such a steal. I bought them in blue but they also have them in red and grey.

Lauren Conrad Tulle Maxi Skirt: I wanted this in color, but for $30 I think it’s great in black too. I’m going to add a belt and wear it with a white crew neck t-shirt with a touch of bling around my neck.

Black & White Skirt: This is another amazing find, for only $25 plus 20% off when you sign up on Facebook and share your purchase link! I saw my fellow fashion blogger wearing it a while back and it looks great on. There’s tons more from SheInside that you’ll have to check out while you’re there. Faux Furs are the must-have of the season and this one is only $40. Wear it with black leg gins, boots and a simple t-shirt. If fur is too much, this cobalt blue jacket is another fab find!

Shop the rest of the goodies below and let me know what you end up getting! Have a great day beauties. XOXO

Fall Fashion: Bold Color + Prints

DSC_1805DSC_1801DSC_1895DSC_1841

 

Photography by Soul Of Photography

Hi everyone! I’m really excited about today’s post. One, because my talented sister took them and two, I’m wearing something I usually wouldn’t pick. But I love it. In the past, I’ve gravitated to neutrals and black, which lately to me seem boring. Colors and prints are making such a statement in fashion these days, it’s been really fun, but a challenge to try to get into them. I consciously have to change my way of thinking when I shop, because I usually don’t think of RED shoes or blue booties, but it’s really amazing what bold color like that can do for your entire look.

Today, I’m wearing pieces from a store I recently discovered – Romwe. They offer free shipping, which is pretty amazing, but also they have some pieces that I haven’t seen much of. This entire outfit cost me about $100, too. The material is great and it feels really good on. The jacket is reversible and can definitely be paired with other looks.

THE LOOK

Pants – Romwe; Top – Rowme (only $19.99); Twin Sides Smooth Coat – Rowme (25% off now); Heels – c/o Sole Society; Watch – c/o old but similar La Mer Collections

Thanks for reading. Please feel free to let me know your thoughts and what you’re loving these days! XO

OUTFIT: A Dress for Summer + A Scarf for Fall

H&M  - Slip Dress - LA Street Style DSC_0279 LA Fashion Blogger DSC_0281 DSC_0285 DSC_0290 DSC_0307

Hat – Target, Dress – H&M old but love Alexander Wang’s Slip Dress for The Outnet, Scarf c/o Bri Seely, Bracelet – H&M, Booties – Pour La Victoire old but obsessed with these and totally getting them myself, Rings – Tiffany Kunz, Sunnies – Karen Walker Number One

Here in LA, we’re still a little confused – what season is it? We should be thankful, I know, but I really can’t wait for sweater weather, cozy season, sunny with a brisk air. Well, Sunday felt like summer again  (reason for my dress) while it should be fall (reason for my scarf). What temperature are you feeling? I promise we’ll on get on track soon and we’ll all be talking layers and boots, very, very soon. Until then, I hope you enjoy the post. I loved how the photos turned out, golden hour did me well. XO

{Trend Forecast SS13 | Black & White}

BLKWHITESWPBLACKANDWHITE_edited-1

After Fall’s more-is-more lavishness, designers seemed to take quite a different approach for Spring. It doesn’t get any more back-to-basics than black and white, which quickly emerged as one of the season’s big themes. To us it’s one of those trends that isn’t a trend, meaning Black and White is so classic, I’m pretty sure it’s here to stay for good. It was noticeable on the runway with eye catchers from Oscar De La Renta, Jill Sander, Jason Wu just to name a few. Shop the trend below to wear this trend before everyone else catches on to it. That is the fun thing about trends, right? The best part, these pieces will stay in your closet forever. XOSWP

{Printed Pants in Fall Leaves}

If you follow my Instagram, you probably have noticed I’m obsessed with these beautiful leaves lately! I love the seasons and it’s nice to know Los Angeles actually does have them, at least a little.

My outfit today was inspired from these lovely printed pants.  A bold pant is easy to outfit as the rest of the outfit can be pretty simple (blacks, whites, etc). These pants are one of my recent purchases from the Kelly Wearstler sample sale. If I could, I would shop all year long at sample sales, as I still can’t really believe how well I did.  I will be posting more on this to come, but be sure to sign up for Daily Candy for their daily newsletter if you haven’t. They list all the great sales in town!

For the top, I’ve always wanted to try out the the cropped look. A bandeau is a great purchase and you’ll find you use it all the time. Of course you need a jacket or cover-up to wear with it, so I threw on my employees only inspired zipper jacket!

I wouldn’t suggest wearing this out in the day, but for a night time out with your girls or a funky gallery opening, go for it! For a more causal look, this can be paired with a simple t-shirt and wedge booties.

XOXO, SWP

{Missioni at the Glendale Train Station}


I love the train station in Glendale, hidden down the street away from everything. The historic building is magical at sunset, and happens to be only 10 minutes from my place.  It’s definetly a great place for photos and beautiful at dusk.  By now you’ve seen my faux fur vest, that goes with just about anything. What’s on your wish list?
