January Summer

My Threads: Shirt: J.Crew, Skirt: H&M (similar), Pumps: Calvin Klein via Nordstrom Rack, Clutch: Coach (similar), Necklace: Francesca's, Bracelets: Forever 21 and Target, Watch: Michael Kors

Okay, so remember last week when I was complaining about the literally freezing 30 degree weather? Now it's in the high 70s here. Southern California is such a spaz. I had all these genius winter outfit ideas in my head (not actually involving clothes I own), but then 'bam!' I had to come up with a bunch of summery things instead. Because three shirts and a jacket just don't fly in January summer.

Anyway, I have a confession to make. Last week, I bought three sequined shirts. I guess I was feeling...sparkly? I might already own several striped shirts, but this one is shiny. So it's totally justified. Making excuses is the first step to recovery, right? Right. 

I hope you had a happy weekend! I managed to watch the whole first season of Girls on dvd, so obviously, my weekend was very productive. 


  1. Love this outfit! It's just so sophisticated but still super fun - love the sparkle! Haha we've been having bipolar weather here too - heatwave one day, jeans and jacket weather the next. Keeps things interesting :)

  2. Such a cute outfit! I just used the exact same coach clutch on my date Saturday night! Its my go-to any chance I get out the house!

  22. I love your outfit! Very cute. I'm dreaming of warmer days... I'm in the middle of a VERY cold winter!

  23. I really like the sparkle on that top, just the right amount. It must be hard to dress when the weather keeps going up and down in temperature. Our weather is consistent at the moment, freezing and snow haha. I really like your blog and am now following :)
