Fall(ing) In Love With Plaid

IMG_2797

First things first, please excuse my major stank face in all of these pictures! Despite my nasty facial expressions I swear to god Uncle Karl that my love for plaid is real + happening on a major scale for fall. From outerwear to underwear I can’t wait to style plaid from head-to-toe!

Nurse Kat

IMG_2261A trip to LA calls for a white midi dress…right? Regardless of the season I feel like white always works in LA. This dress was quite the conversation starter yesterday due to the fact that it could easily be mistaken for a lab coat/nurse uniform. Lucky for me I wore this dress to dinner with old friends where the jokes did not stop!
Now no look is complete in my book without my signature Karen Walker Betsy sunglasses in CRAZY tortoise. While this style is discontinued, she is still producing very similar styles in CRAZY tortoise + they are on sale thanks to the one and only Shopbop sale!

This Is How I ‘Dress Normal’

IMG_2209A couple of years ago a co-worker told me that I dressed like it was Halloween everyday. I am pretty sure it was a dig, but I took it as a compliment. I have never been one to ‘Dress Normal,’ so I found it quite entertaining that just a couple months after I left Gap they launched the ‘Dress Normal’ campaign.
This look is nearly all Gap, even the baby Lil Wayne tee + I am pretty sure this is not where they were going with the ‘Dress Normal’ campaign! I do have to give to Gap though. I am a huge fan of these destroyed skinny jeans from the new collection + can not get enough of Banana’s new D’Orsay pump. What do you think of the new campaign? Will you be ‘normal’ this fall?

Fall Fashion Fuss

IMG_1477While the weather in San Francisco is forever unpredictable, the past couple weeks have been unreal. Indian summer is in full effect + Fall Fashion is not an option.
Yesterday I decided to at least embrace a fall color palette…and white denim shorts. My new ‘Stan Smith‘ kicks had just arrived + I was dying to style them. My recent career change has lead to an easy breezy walking commute. Benji + I meet Ash a couple blocks down the street and then walk along the Bay. It is about a 30 minute walk + the perfect start to my day. The new walk deserves new shoes, right?

Basic

IMG_1472

According to Buzzfeed there are 17 Fall Activities All Basic Girls Love + I am thankful to report that I will not be participating in any of them. Lucky for me my cinnamon allergy eliminates most pumpkin eating activities + my other allergy to bullshit eliminates the rest. 
For Fall I plan on keeping it simple with this little black dress, peep-toe booties + my favorite duffel from Clare V. This Fall I will be launching a new business + doing my best to avoid being basic.
