Less Than Casual Monday

It can be difficult to jump back into work week attire on Mondays, especially if you had a lazy relaxing Sunday like I did. The southern California weather made for a tshirt and jeans kind of day which is always my fav.  Add some ankle booties, a scarf or jean jacket and the look is still appropriate for fall! I dressed mine up just a bit with a statement necklace and black denim, making it a totally versatile yet easy office –> happy hour outfit. Depending on your dress code, throw on a blazer and/or swap the shoes for a wedge version or heels and we are still in business, baby!


I love love looove this top. I found it a few months ago at Nordstrom Rack when I was searching for an interview outfit. I needed something neutral, not too casual but not too dressy and it was the winner! They had it in so many colors at the time, I wish I had snagged more! I had no idea how often I would wear it! Ok sorry enough with the !!!s but it’s true! and exciting!  Seriously though, this is the ultimate go-to top on those “so many clothes but nothing to wear days.” I’ve worn it out to dinner, paired it with boyfriend shorts and worn it on a brewery tour, tucked in to a skirt to brunch, you name it – in fact, if you have any other suggestions or want to share how you would wear it, I am all ears! Feel free to leave a comment. The label is Soprano, but I couldn’t find it anywhere online for your convenience sooo you might have to make a trip to Nordstrom Rack this weekend to see if they have any left… I know what a chore 😉



The jeans on the other hand are still easy to find even though I’ve had them for a year now.  True Religion Brand Jean’s Halle Mid Rise Super Skinny in coated black are a must have for holiday dinners etc.  The booties are Sam & Libby Molly Cap Toe Ankle Boot in putty, also available in black at none other than the one and only Target! – lifesaver to fashionable girls on a budget nationwide.


wayfarer sunnies are from a street vendor, statement necklace also a super lucky find at Nordstrom Rack


Vestal watch, Jewelmint.com cuff

This LOVE clutch lives up to its name because I love how cute and functional it is.  The front slide handle is a great alternative to a wristlet for the girl who tends to set her bag down at the bar and walk away or typically has it running onto the dance floor then suddenly it’s gone when she’s off…. if you know what I mean.  You can find it, and so many other awesome handbags at JustFab.com.


K, bye!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope you had a lovely Monday!
