I always loved sweaters, but especially ruffled sweaters. There’s something whimsical and feminine about a ruffled knit that I like to pair with rips or black raw hem jeans. Need some styling tips? I also love a ruffled sweater over a maxi dress and flats. Or wide leg pants and ruffled sweater. It gives raw rips that nouveau riche. What do you think? This weekend my mom comes so it’s a happy Friday indeed! See this post on ruffles for more inspiration.

LA has been around 50 degree’s every morning, so layers are non-negotiable. Here, I wore a camisole, soft sweater, distressed black jeans, and go-to black boots. This outfit would also look good with a denim jacket or a faux fur coat. These black layers are wonderful basics for your closet!

Processed with VSCO with a6 presetThis top is making all my high school black bandana dreams come true. I like pairing it with the oh-so-stretchy black jeans. Because it’s all about blouses, prints, and movement, (aka fringe) this Fall. Love seeing all the looks and discovering so many amazing labels here at NYFW. Back in LA in 24 hrs. Happy weekend loves!

There are few things I love better than a dainty lace top and fluted sleeves. Here I paired it with black jeans to contrast the lace detail. I have a feeling you will be seeing more of this top. Happy almost weekend – I’m excited to be packing for our trip to Chicago!

If you’re looking for that one-of-a-kind vintage Chanel, look no further than Rice and Beans Vintage. What I love about this Chanel backpack, besides the fact that it is Chanel and gorgeous, is that it is hand’s free. I can carry my essentials and still have hands available for my little ones who invariably come with all those spills and hugs. A great thing to keep in mind about feature pieces …  always pair your feature piece–for me it’s my jacket with all its intricate lace–with a subdued color like black so as to keep it chic and not too loud. For instance, if this jacket was white, I would wear white jeans. It’s all about balance. And in order to let the jacket and Chanel shine, I chose my go-to nude sandals because that’s all I really needed for date night. Well, maybe a margarita or two but I wouldn’t limit that to just date night. Follow Rice and Beans Vintage on Instagram to see vintage Chanel as it arrives!
