OOTD: Stripes With a Pop of Red

Living in sunny, Southern California has been absolutely amazing. Nearly every day is gorgeous without a single cloud in the sky. The one downside? I'm so jelly of all the lovely ladies on instagram and their gorgeous coats and stunning oversized scarves. I mean, I feel left out of a whole season of shopping because it just isn't practical for my current zip code. Not that I'm complaining, I ADORE this place-- I'm just feeling some closet envy at the moment. Oh and not to mention, what do I do with all of my fab fall/winter pieces that I've accumulated from years of East Coast living? Maybe my insta closet will be making a comeback soon!

Dress: Gap, Old- Similar Here

I digress! It's finally been cool enough here to bust out this striped beauty! I got her on super duper clearance during one of my last visits to my home sweet home. This dress has literally been sitting in my closet tags attached and patiently waiting to see the light of day.

Belt:Vintage Paquette, Similar Holiday Holly Version Here

I scored this red belt at a resale shop for 5 bucks! And the shoes, I'm almost too excited to even type about them.

Kitten Heels: TJMaxx, Issac Mizrahi, Similar Slingback Style Here

The shoes were a fab find at TJMaxx and this is how it all went case you really care to know.  I was wearing my Red Sox hat with the Red socks on it and a pair of jeans-- super causal, right? Then I spotted these low heeled beauties. The popping red of the socks and the shoes and the denim-- it was just too perfect! Not only could I envision these dressed down, but also dressed up. SWOOON!

This bag is an Emma Fox, my first one EVAH was from TJMaxx-- yeah, yeah I obviously love that place. I scored a black one and this was maybe 4.5 years ago, there was hardly anything coming back on google from searching "Emma Fox"-- which was awesome because I don't like to always have what the next person does. Anyway, shortly after moving to Virginia, I was browsing around the local TJ's and low and behold there was beige & navy!! I couldn't decide-- so shamefully or would it be shamelessly?- ha! I bought both.

Handbag: TJMaxx, Emma Fox, Similar Here

Good news for you! You can buy these lush dressage style and fabulously oversized bags at Macy's and even So, happy shopping!
