I’m not here to talk about what I wore to Coachella although I secretly wish I was. I’m just here to talk about what I wore on a normal Saturday spent in Studio City, CA, going out to eat and running errands. When it comes to every day style, I’m all about comfort, flattery and simple chic looks. I’m really into being able to throw on a light, airy, pseudo crop top and then getting creative with what bottoms to pair it with, whether it be jeans, shorts or these drawstring pants pictured here.

I’ve also noticed I’ve been adding many shades of blue as I build my wardrobe. It seems to have become a staple neutral for me. I added a colorful bag with this outfit because I felt it complimented the shirt quite well. I also like incorporating pops of color into my otherwise neutral outfits. To top it off, a pair of white strappy sandals and I’m ready to face my… rather uneventful day. A good outfit can definitely put an extra pep in your step even if you have nothing to get ready for or no one to impress. Do it for yourself. And be creative with pieces that you feel comfortable in. While I love the idea of other bloggers or fashion icons inspiring you (it’s where I am always getting inspiration from) don’t feel you have to jump on board with every single trend or completely copy anyone else’s style. There are many trends out there that I feel as a fashion blogger, I am supposed to get on board with, but it’s just not me. I like to “stay in vogue” as I say, but am careful not to lose sight of what I truly want to wear, not what I think I’m supposed to wear.

A lot of the pieces in this post are many years old, but it’s working in 2015 when put together correctly. Try taking another look at your closet in a new light before feeling defeated and wishing you could go on a shopping spree. Lastly, remember that confidence is everything!

Meet the Blogger

As a twenty something transplant from the midwest to Los Angeles, I’ve spent a lot of time trying to discover myself. What makes me truly happy and excited, what are my hobbies and passions other than coming home after work, watching the Bachelor and eating a lean cuisine (there is NOTHING wrong with that by the way!)?

It occurred to me that there is one thing that I’ve always been passionate about for as long as I can remember, and that’s fashion. In my opinion, retail therapy is the best kind of therapy and perusing the “womens fashion” section of pinterest is a productive and highly enjoyable use of time.

I’ve never been able to afford high fashion, but my wardrobe never suffers. For those of you who associate the word “vogue” with expensive, high fashion… let me clear it up for you. If you aren’t rich, you can still be vogue! Vogue is not just a magazine with expensive things… it’s defined as “fashion or style at a particular time,” that’s it! So, I live in the Valley of LA, not the city, and I don’t wear heels every day…and by every day I mean hardly ever. Compared to city style, the valley has more of your every day type girl (but still very vogue!) and I think more of us can relate to that.

Enjoy!
