I’ve been so into sportswear fashion lately, maybe it’s the old soccer player in me? If you saw my last post on minimalism, you read that I found some amazing pieces over the weekend. It’s sometimes hard to see how the fit and look of something is online, so this post will give you a better idea of some of the pieces. I’ve styled the same outfit for night which I’ll be posting later this week. :)

Hope everyone is having a great week. It’s been a busy week on my and I’m just getting around to posting these, but I’m really excited about today’s post because it’s an outfit that I feel is real representative of me. I love a little edge (like these zipper jeans) and I love to be comfortable on the weekends in booties instead of heels. I also love pieces that are a little over the top, like this textured amazing jacket. Can you believe I found it at Crossroads Trading for $11? Their buyers are really spot on and I never leave their store empty handed.
Sending you love from my couch as I catch up on this week’s bachelor. #score I’m not ashamed to admit I watch this every season! I find it so entertaining. What are your guilty pleasures? XXXX

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
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
Sundays are amazing. You can lie in bed if you want to all day or go explore your city for shopping and brunching. But one thing is key, your Sunday fit should be comfy, or it just doesn’t seem like Sunday. I decided to play around with some prints, using stripes as a center point, my new army vest and of corse, leopard!
The post is about shopping YOUR closet. Just when I feel that I desperately need to go shopping (and I know you get that same urge), I remember, there’s a few pieces in that closet of mine that are getting pretty dusty and ready for a good wear. It’s truly silly to think sometimes just how many clothes most of us really do own. I wore this dress for many occasions back in the day: church, a wedding, gradations, and today, it’s still as beautiful. It’s literally over 6 year old, which means, it’s good design. Instead of dressing it up, I paired it with a jean jacket, a bright clutch and a beautiful head crown by Eddera Paris.
Dress: Max Azaria (similar here ); Jean Jacket: CURRENT/ELLIOT similar here or cheaper here; Clutch: Macys or similar super cute and on sale here; HeadCrown: Eddera Paris or similar here; Necklaces: H&M and Kelly Wearstler
I’m sorry I haven’t been around all week, it was crazy busy with work and I am also hosting an event next Saturday in LA. It’s been taking up so much of my time, but it will well be worth it. I really can’t wait!
This post was inspired by a piece I picked up at the TopShop shopping preview at The Grove. I love the color and print of this body conscious dress. Emerald was announced as the color of the season by Pantone, so I was happy to pick up a piece to add to my wardrobe.
It is somewhat of a tight dress but it’s still conservative; long sleeve and crew neck. I definitely recommend it for all shapes and sizes – it’s a flattering piece. There are so many ways to style it but I’m always a fan of layering with vests – jean vests, fur vest, you name it. I picked up the jean vest from Loehmanns for $20 – total score since it’s Current / Elliot. My new boots were also a great purchase since it’s end of the season. I love Chloe and these are by their diffusion line, SEE by Chloe.
If you read my blog often you know I definitely do not take myself too seriously and I am really a goof! We had a little fun at the end of our shoot trying to perfect the ‘jump’ pose. HA. Sometimes you just have to be a little silly, you know?!
Wishing you all a lovely weekend. I have plans to lay on the beach with friends today and bask in the sun (yay!), then an amazing wedding event for bloggers and media at the Bel Air Bay Club, Los Angeles tomorrow. My amazing brother bought me Lakers ticket, so that will be tomorrow night – I can hardly wait! I haven’t been to a Lakers game since a little girl. Follow me on Instagram at @stylewaxpoetic or comment below so we can stay in touch. I’d love to get to know you too. XO
