B+W Houndstooth Plaid

I love houndstooth. I love plaid and I love b&w together. I couldn't have been more excited to find this fabric because it has everything I love in one print!! I made this sheath dress last week and have worn it a few times and have gotten so many compliments. The fabric is light weight, drapes so nicely over the body and is comfortable to wear. I love that this print can be dressed up or down. You can wear it with pumps and a blazer to the office or with a moto jacket and booties for a casual look on the weekend (worn here - PS I had the pleasure of meeting Julia from Gal Meets Glam at the Alice + Olivia event). If anyone is interested, I am adding this dress to my Etsy store!

Striped Sweatshirt Dress

Omg this dress is so warm...I wore this in 60 degree weather and I had to take off my jacket! I've been wanting to make a sweatshirt (fabric) dress for the longest time since it's always a little chilly in SF, but never found any sweatshirt fabric with a pattern that I really liked until now. This dress is so comfy and cozy, it would be perfect for ladies that live in cooler climates.

The Good Ole Basics

When I don't know what to wear, I turn to basics that are easy to throw on and don't require ironing. Both items are under $15.
Gap Favorite long-sleeve V-neck. XSP. Comes in a few colors and tempted to pick up the coral for spring.
Old Navy Rockstar Tuxedo - Gray. 0S. Use code Save20 for an extra 20% off. Measurements: 27.5" inseam, 26.75 waist, 7" rise, 9.5" leg opening. 
I also ordered the Rockstar in Ankle-Zip Blue Ridge  (27" inseam, 26.75" waist, 7" rise, 10.5" leg opening) and French Grey (28" inseam, 27" waist, 8" rise, 9.5" leg opening). 
I returned the ankle jeans because the inseam was too short to be regular length and too long to be ankle length on me. I also thought the leg opening was also too wide. I wasn't crazy about the French Grey color (too light) in person and the inseam was a tad too long.

Pointed Toes + OOTDs

H&M Leopard Sheath Dress. (similar here).
BR Trench. (similar here). I rarely wear this jacket because of the 3/4 sleeves. I realized I have jackets/coats with the same length sleeves and I never wear them either because my arms get cold easily. Note to self, don't buy coats that do not cover my entire arm. If I have time, I might undo the coat and sew on full length sleeves!
BP Pointed Pointy Toe Flat in  Black + in Leopard. Size 5 (sized down 1/2 size). I never wear flats, because my feet are so accustomed to heels. Every time I try on flats, they just don't feel that comfortable except for these! They are so cute and I love the pointed toes too.

Here's also a few OOTD from last week via instagram (for those who don't follow me or have IG).
BR V-Neck Peplum Sweater. XSP. | Loft Pants (similar) | F21 Earrings (similar)
 F21 Jumpsuit (similar + similar in petite) | HM Jacket (similar) | F21 Necklace (similar) | Prada Havana Sunglasses (similar)
 Asos Dress (similar) | Henri Bendel bracelet | MAC - Up the Amp Lipstick
