The Key to my Heart

Hello lovies, I'm sorry I've been away longer than I anticipated, but after getting back from Michigan on Tuesday I came down with a nasty cold that I am still battling. So as I sit here surrounded by tissues, cough drops and a nice hot mug of green tea, I will update you on some basics and hopefully be up on my feet and sharing my style again soon.
First of all, I am leaving a week from tomorrow for San Franciso where I will be for the next six weeks. Hurrah! As excited as I am, I'm a little stressed...okay maybe a lot. My To Do list is page after page, and with so many people to see, places to be, and goodbyes to say before the "Big Day", the task of packing for a month and a half is increasingly daunting.
However, even with the craziness and head cold I did squeeze in time to shop and came across the book Style by Lauren Conrad.
If you haven't looked at this book, you should. I've read the first bit and it already has helped me with two realizations. 1) I should start buying more versatile pieces to maximize possible ensemble combinations. 2) Packing will be made easier with said versatile pieces.
The first chapter focuses in key pieces and after some thinking I narrowed down to a few key things that I absolutely need for San Francisco.
The first:
My anchor cardigan from Urban Outfitters.

I literally pair this with everything. It's comfy and light enough for warmer days, but also has long sleeves for cool evening. And it goes with everything without being bland or boring.

Second comes my Franco Sarto pump sandals

They're surprisingly comfy and have a great pattern to them. I wear them with nearly everything and of my collection, they rank first when it comes to likelihood of being able to wear them walking the streets of SF without feeling like my feet may fall off.

My Urban Outfitters long white skirt

SO comfy. I wear it all the time and it looks great with simple tshirts as well as structured blazers, in addition to being a neutral color, making it so I can wear it anytime....admittedly it's hard not to wear it twice a week. It will also be nice to wear a feminine skirt during some of the colder days of SF weather since the skirt is long and has thick fabric.

My oversized white button up

Stolen from my moms closet and far to big for me, this shirt is perfect for belting and pairing with anything from skirts to denim for a classic look. It's easy and simple and timeless.

Also while shopping today I snagged some totally adorable espadrille wedges from Aldo that I've been dying for since they're so summery (and will complete a boho look I'm working on for y'all)

Much love, hoping to be back to normal soon!
As always, keep it classy and may the prada be with you!
