I always feel so awkward wearing hats but I can’t deny that they are the ultimate weapon in covering up a horrid bedhead.  I woke up on this particular morning and the back of my head was a rat’s nest (don’t ever go to sleep with wet hair).  Perfect time to whip out my new hat that I bought a couple of months back.  I was so inspired by Gucci’s Pre-Fall collection and had to own a leather newsboy cap.  This version may not be the leather cap I seek but for someone who doesn’t wear hats often, good enough.

Word of advice, don’t wear hats anywhere near your guy friends + alcohol!  When they’ve drunk enough, that hat will be the hot item of the table.  They will be giggling and trying to stick their big heads into your cute little hat.  Boys. -_-

suit up

A little tribute to one of my favorite shows, How I Met Your Mother.  Sad that it finally came to an end but if I learned one thing from Barney, it’s to always suit up.  I chose to go a comfortable route with the suit and wore a thin silk cami instead of a button up.  I could have just done a plain white tank but I thought the silk cami gave a slightly more polished vibe.

at a corner

jtownsf jtownsf1 jtownsf4I picked up this jacket for about $10 at a thrift store and it’s always my go-to whenever I want to throw on something light.  My mom says it would have been prettier in an army green color but I’m pretty satisfied with this boring brown color too.  I love the idea of it being this dusty boring brown thing that I just grab for errands or whatever else.  It’s probably spawned from my ghetto habit of wearing the same things over and over again on those days when I rarely ever leave the house for anything besides simple errands and late night burritos.

spring trench

burberry12 burberry4 burberry8Found the perfect lightweight trench for spring, and it’s black.  Best trench ever.  I can’t stop admiring the studded detail around the wrist and how the cut just falls long enough to perfectly cover my shorts.  I think the shorter length of this (and of course the black color) makes it the perfect throw on piece to wear over anything.  And not to mention how black ankle boots may just be its soul mate.

the layered white shirt

borrowed borrowed1 borrowed4 borrowed3Lately, I’ve been infatuated with the bustier over white shirt look.  I’ve always been partial to it but could never find the perfect lace or leather bustier.  I might not be looking hard enough since I keep seeing great versions all over Instagram.  Since I haven’t quite found the one for me yet, I switched things up a bit and layered the white shirt with a bustier dress instead.

P.S. How gorgeous are these heels?  My sister recently went on a shoe binge and these are the results.  I had to steal them for a bit.  Can’t resist such gorgeous things!
