Move over spicy red dress dancer emoji!
This outfit was really made for this weird California weather slump between spring and summer (we call this the June Gloom) when the temps drop and the sun likes to play shy. But the shoulders can still make an appearance and a sliver of skin peaks out between boots and a skirt, all while staying protected from unpredictable gusts of cool wind. Sydney doesn't do cold very well!

Funny story about this skirt y'all. I pulled it off the clearance rack at Marshall's and thought to myself "wow, I think I could make a profit reselling this thing on eBay!" Yeah, well...I listed it and started to get some offers when I made the mistake of trying it on. From that point on, it was mine. Post deleted. The moral of this story? Don't source items to resell that are in your size!
These beautiful Stuart Weitzman suede goodies were a birthday gift from my mom and have an awesome story but you will have to be patient because I will be sharing all about them next week!! For now, just ogle. *insert heart eyes emoji*
This BR top is an old familiar tune, 50% off clearance with additional BR CC rewards. Saved around $60 off retail! I really can not get enough of off the shoulder tops! The shoulders are such an elegant part of the body and they are meant to be shown off!
You have definitely seen this bag around, particularly here. It is a classic staple that goes with everything and just refuses to quit! Even when I twirl and spin. ;)
Thank you so much for reading!
Make sure to check back on Monday and I will dish all the details on my beautiful birthday boots and how they were only 1/4 of the retail price!
