Yes, that is a waterfall on my skirt. And no, I didn't make this skirt from an old tapestry I found at a garage sale. I actually got it at Anthropologie - on sale of course! It's a little more than I'd usually spend on an item but I just couldn't resist the pom-poms and unique print. 

I'm completing my library-chic look with a pair of oversized frames from Firmoo. If you are looking for a pair of prescription glasses for an amazing price you need to check out Firmoo. For example, the pair I'm wearing right now is $39 and includes 1.50 index, single vision lenses! You could easily pay a couple hundred dollars for frames + lenses anywhere else. And Firmoo has TONS of options to choose from for men and women. Plus every order comes with a nice hard case, spectacle pouch, cleaning cloth and tiny screwdriver. I've gotten several pair of frames from Firmoo and I've never been disappointed. Each pair of glasses has detailed measurements which makes it easy to pick out the right size. 

If you don't need glasses to correct your vision you can get any pair as non prescription. I'm actually using these as fashion glasses! I'm always a sucker for classic black frames and I thought the wire sides were really cool. 

And the great news is you can get your first pair FREE!  Or use code "THANKS"for 20% off all frames!

I've been looking for a black jumpsuit for awhile and I was surprised to find one at Target! For only $30 I couldn't say no. It was sold out online so I went to two different Targets to find my size in store but it was totally worth it. This thing is so comfortable. This one I'm wearing is sold out online but there are a lot of other options. Express also has cute jumpsuit options. This sequin jumpsuit would be great for holiday parties!

Happy Friday! I have a crazy weekend up ahead with two clarinet concerts I have to perform in. Plus friends are visiting from out of town! So it's going to be super busy. 

When I saw this blouse at J.Crew Factory I knew I had to get it (during a good sale, of course). First of all, it's black and white; and secondly, it has this cool textured dot pattern! We had a little cool streak and I was able to take out these Rachel Roy moto jeans I picked up way back in September! Guys - it's actually been cloudy here! And I think I might have seen a raindrop - just one - but I'll take it. In other crazy news my tomato plant (that I got in March) finally started growing a tomato! In November! It's crazy!

So, my hair is getting a little out of control. I got them cut today but you'll have to deal with another outfit post of out of control hair! Anyhoo...I wore this outfit to a friend's birthday celebration in downtown LA. It's the first time I'd gone downtown to eat so I thought I'd put on my party clothes! I'm actually wearing a top and midi skirt - not a dress! I'm surprised I hadn't worn these two prints together before...they go together really well! 

And I'm loving these ShoeMint heels. I'm actually thinking about getting them in the other colors - black and nude. Despite having a 4 inch heel they are actually really comfortable. If you haven't tried ShoeMint before you should really check them out. I think this is my 5th pair and I've never paid over $50 for high quality leather shoes! (I've gotten them all on sale). And the great news is ShoeMint is no longer a membership site. That means you don't have to worry about "skipping" months or being charged if you forget.

I hope you all had a great weekend! I spent the weekend sweating in the 90 degree temps. Seriously, California, it's November! I wore this outfit last week during a cold streak when temps went down to 70. I think this blouse is perfect for fall. I love the dark floral print but it's light and breezy enough for California weather. And of course...corduroy pants. I can't wait until I can wear outfits like this every day! 

(Please excuse my bangs...I reaaalllyy need to get them cut but I'm too lazy. And I'm afraid to cut them myself!)
