Plaid & Leather

Well hello there, remember me? I know, I know, what is consistency right? I’m working on, things have been a bit crazy, and well… let’s just say my mojo is low. I’ve been lacking the motivation to not only blog, but to REALLY get dressed. Jeans and a black tank have been my go-to. I forgot how much of an attitude adjustment can be made when you decide to just get dressed, even if it’s to go to the local grocery store. That’s exactly what happened with this outfit. (minus the store lol)
Do you ever have those items that you’ve harbored forever but never really figure out how to wear? Yeah, that’s exactly what this leather is for me. I found it about 3 years ago at a thrift store for $9, if I remember correctly. Now, why I chose to wear it on a 98 degree weather kind of day, let’s just say i’m a true fire sign. (Aries) Although the day ended up scorching (and I ended up changing into a jean mini), I needed my cute little plaid jacket while out & about earlier that morning. I snagged this cutie from leftovers of a clothing swap hosted by a friend of mine. 

You know me, “one man’s trash is another man’s treasure.”

California Winter


Coat – Styles For Less | Sweater – Thrifted | Jeans & Boots – Forever 21| Jewelry (except Quartz necklace) – Claire’s

To my delight, I can say that California is actually experiencing what most of you call a “Winter”, or something like it. There’s been no abundance of rain or snow but we are experiencing pretty chilly weather. Chilly for us Californians that is… Luckily for me, living in North Carolina for 6 years or so, made me pretty unbiased to the California weather. Even though you can experience every type of weather imaginable in a weeks span while living in NC, you can’t but help to love & appreciate the fact that you actually have seasons.
I based my outfit around this white & black men’s sweater I bought while you guessed it…. Thrifting! I only paid a good $2.99 for it & couldn’t wait to wash & wear. I even felt a little girly & decided to stack  on some accessories
Stay on the lookout, because I will be uploading YouTube videos & writing more posts on many the thrifted look books I have for you.
Until next look!
