Faux Pas?

I once read that wearing the same designer from head to toe was a major fashion faux pas, but while organizing my closet this morning these three pieces all from Zara seem to work perfectly together.
Faux Pas? Not sure I really care, rules were made to be broken weren't they??

Men's Monday

So for a while know, we all know that the "Jogger" is a great way to be comfortable and put together, or comfortable and chic, how great is that! But the same holds true now for the men.
Now these are not for my Hubby at this trending moment, he is a little more basic, would I like to see him in them, Yes, but for now they are for my teenage son, who has been living in them lately, and I am happy to see out of his typical sweats and into a more polished look.
Whether it's a true sweat pant style jogger or a Chino style your guy will be sure to be living in these.

Way back in 1994 when I first started dating my husband backpacks were a huge trend, Coach was also on trend around that time. For one of my first birthday's my husband and I spent together he bought me a coach backpack, oh how I loved that backpack, which yes I still have.
So how does that saying go? What's old is new again? Yes, the backpack is new again, I love the hands free freedom of a backpack, here are a few of my favorites...

Longchamp Le Pliage Backpack                                        Tory Burch

Proenza Schouler                                        Rag & Bone Grayson Backpack

Baja Crush

Do you remember your first crush?
I vividly remember my first crush, it was 7th grade orientation, when I first saw him. Whenever I think of this crush, I always picture him in a Baja hoodie.
Maybe that's the reason I am currently crushing on this Baja Sweater from Forever 21

                                                I would pair this sweater with....

BlANK NYC shorts// Ancient Greek Estia Sandal// Phillip Lim Pashli Backpack 

I also love this Baja Sweater from Soft Joie, and this one from 360 Cashmere

Ebay Kick

So I have been on a really big Ebay kick lately. I buy so many of my Levi's on Ebay, and I have been wanting to add a pair of black 501's to my repertoire, so the scouring began, and quickly ended with a perfect pair that I scored for $6.99, yes that's right 6 dollars and .99 cents!! My intentions were to cut these 501's into shorts, and after seeing one of my favorite bloggers Man Repeller's blog on adding patches to your jeans, (link) , I planned on adding the patches to the black cutoffs,  I began searching for the perfect patches.
So the do you want the good news or the bad news or the good news?
So the bad news is, the black 501's were a perfect ankle length that I couldn't bare to cut them into shorts, the good news is I found 2 perfectly so me patches, ( I had a few more I had collected over the years), and then the other good news is that apparently I am a Levi's cutoff hoarder and I had the perfect pair in nventory to add the patches to.

Fanny Packing

First Culottes now Fanny Packs.
For some of you, these are styles that don't warrant a comeback but then there are the rest of us that embrace a good comeback.
I am going back and forth between the Rag & Bone,( I will refrain from using the term Fanny Pack and use Belt Bag) Belt Bag, and the Gucci, ( yes I know, more Gucci!!)

Rag & Bone                                                                                   Gucci

To be honest this is the one that I would love, but it doesn't seem like the money tree has started to bloom just yet

I just love Kitschy (is that even a word?) things, especially to use when entertaining. I've just come across so many kitschy things from Forever 21, who knew they even sold these things...

These glasses would be a perfect gift for my sis that lives in the Pacific Palisades, they may warrant a trip to LA just to give her these as a hostess gift

My Husband loves mugs like this one for his morning coffee, perfect Father's Day gift

I can't seem to remember thoughts or ideas anymore, so I have been using a journal to jot things down in, this one is totally perfect for me
Eccolo Write it Down Journal

Love it!

I always keep cards on hand and these are just so cute

The Hip Hop Cookbook, what a great hostess gift!!
