With winter quickly approaching, I decided to go through my closet and pick out some of my essential pieces to wear this season. Being from San Francisco, we pretty much experience the cool temperatures year around so it is no surprise that most of my closet is made up of coats and light jackets (perfect for layering). I have been seeing a lot of jewel tones in magazines and was pleased to see that I already have a few items that fit the trend. One of my absolute favorites is my blue scarf. I wear it all the time for its versatility and for the colorful impact it gives to any outfit. Seeing my things laid out actually makes me a little bit excited for the fog.
Ok, so this is officially my first outfit post. Posing for the camera was a little awkward but I’m sure I’ll get the hang of it over time. I must have taken over fifty pictures (most of which I immediately deleted). It is not as easy as it seems. I only hope that one day I can have images as amazing as those taken by some of my favorite bloggers (Emily from Cupcakes and Cashmere, Jessica from What I Wore, and Kelly from the Glamourai). In fact the only easy part to this process was picking out the outfit. I’ve been looking for a striped skirt for a while and finally found this one at Forever 21. Bright colors make me happy so I decided to incorporate them into the rest of the outfit being that the skirt was black and white. I can’t wait to wear the skirt again in the spring with a denim jacket, fedora and cute strappy sandals.
