Happy Monday gals. Soooo… you ever wake up one morning and realize you hate all your clothes and nothing fits and you can’t find your favorite dress and OMG WHY IS EVERY SHIRT I OWN BLUE I DON’T EVEN LIKE BLUE! That’s basically every Monday in my life. I used to double down on this nightmare and spend 30 minutes desperately trying to put something cute together, getting more and more frustrated as each new outfit proved a fail. But those days are long gone. I have a formula now, and because I love you so much, I’m sharing that fool-proof formula with you: Continue reading “My Go To Outfit When I Hate All My Clothes”
It seems like everyone is living their best life at Coachella right now. Me? I’m hanging on my couch with Roxie scrolling through pics of the fashion scene, trying not to eat an entire bag of chips. My salt addiction aside, the best Coachella style I’m seeing so far have one thing in common: a street style edge and tons of bright color. Bright colors! Ground-breaking for spring, amirite? If the Coachella lookbook has inspired me to do anything, it’s break out my new yellow Louboutins and take them for drinks and dinner. I got these stunners for a steal on TheRealReal, which, if you haven’t heard of yet, is the best site to get new designer items for a fraction of the price.
In other good news for you color lovers: I’ve rounded up seven other sandals that will bring that pop of Coachella bright into your life, without having to go anywhere, starting with yellow ones like mine.Yellow: These sunnies are only $59 at Nordstrom. Yes, please Continue reading “Coachella Envy + Colorful Spring Sandals”
I’m starting a new section of my blog called “Tuesday Tips”. I hope to give you simple ways to glam up your life, make your beauty routine easier or elevate your style. For my debut post, I’m highlighting something that’s always close to my heart no matter my age: RIBBONS. Not only are they so versatile, ribbons of all fabrics and colors are cheap and easy to come by (any fabric store and even Target has ribbon). So you can get saturated velvets for fall and bright cottons for spring. If I’m at a craft store, I like to buy 1-2 yards (about $1) and then cut it at home. Cut the ends on a diagonal for more polish, or leave them straight and frayed for more edge. Bonus: Ribbons also make great headbands or chokers! Continue reading “Tuesday Tip: Ribbons”
First piece of news: My insta has even more style, beauty, general antics, and pictures of my pomeranian. What’s not to love?! ❤️ If you’re in the neighborhood, check me out @thechampagnechic
If you’re in the Northeast U.S. right now you are probably getting buried under inches of snow. Stay safe and warm out there! I took the redeye to Chicago last night and it’s freezing here so I feel your pain (but no snow yet, whew). This cold weather inspired me to post about the pure joy that is finding a really warm, but also chic, coat. Like this patterned knit from H&M. And it’s on sale right now for only $50!

Hope everyone had an amazing weekend! It’s been so rainy in San Francisco so we did a lot of early spring cleaning the last few days: I was able to pull out two full bags of clothes to donate. Feel like I have more room in the closet for some new clothes… not like I need to shop any more every again. On Sunday we went on a walk through the Mission and I wore this navy midi from Vince with my favorite East Coast reppin’ tee. Continue reading “Sunday Strollin’: Pleated Midi Skirt + T-Shirt”
I know red was a huge fall trend but I’m still majorly crushing on it. Red accessories are a cheap and easy way to incorporate red into your wardrobe without committing to a wearing a red sweater all day. First and foremost…
An easy coat: I LOVE my red coat. It’s the best way to bring some pizazz (or pizzaz, get it?!) to an otherwise neutral outfit. This one from Zara is my go to for a black dress or jeans (similar options here and here):
Pizza Shirt: Uniqlo // Jeans: Madewell // Slip-Ons: Vince // Sunglasses: Westward Leaning // Necklaces: Vintage Continue reading “Wardrobe Want: Red and More Red”
If you’re like me, you spend your entire fall (and winter now that I live in California) in the same pair of low heeled black booties. Unfortunately, I am not blessed with slim, angelic ankles, so I need a pair with a really low shaft height. I️ appreciate this below-the-ankle cut because the height looks good on everyone, and hits right at or below the ankle bone, slimming the look of your leg. This means you show the perfect amount of skin with jeans and also hit low enough to wear with dresses and skirts. And a 1″ heel feels dressed up, but wearable for everyday, so it’s guaranteed to be the most versatile shoe in your wardrobe.Mine: Alexander Wang Kori Ankle, $575 (they have silver AND rose gold accent)
I️ rounded up some great options at all price points so you too can find your ride-or-die black booties.
Here’s a shot with jeans.
Show me your faves!
