When you can’t decide what to wear, just put these items together. Done.
Cropped Top, wide leg pant, Chelsea boot
Turtleneck, straight leg, loafer
Oversized sweater, pleated skirt, and sneakers
Cardigan, jeans, and mules
Blazer, tee, ankle pants, and oxfords
And if you’re feeling a little schlumpy, just throw a trench over it and let it do the style work.

Part of the October Chic Challenge on The Daily Conossiour blog is to curate your sleepwear. This is a great idea. I’m always updating my closet, but my jammie drawer sadly goes by the way side.
I said goodbye to sloppy t-shirts and holey jammie bottoms, and I added a lavender sachet to the drawer. I won’t be looking like these ladies to the left, but my sleep drawer feels new and improved. Curiously while cleaning out this drawer, I found a sundress from probably 10 years ago, a bathing suit coverup I had completely forgotten about, and a few other random items.
My sleepwear drawer now consists of:
- 3 sleep shorts
- 1 pair long jammie pants. (I prefer short, but if it does get cold or the mosquitos start attacking, long pants come in handy.)
- 3 sleep tee’s. I used to wear cute graphic tee’s, but mens white undershirts are better quality.
- 1 largely oversized button down shirt (my current fave)
- 1 short nightie
- 1 long white cotton nightgown.

Here are my 5 Fall additions to my wardrobe this year.
This HM dress. It’s a bit longer on me and falls really nicely. I can wear it now or with a cardigan when/if it gets chilly this year.
I bought this basic black sweatshirt slightly cropped from Zara. I foresee multiple uses for this item.
These two oversized tops from Cos. The blue blouse and heavy material t-shirt style top will both look great with skinnies or leggings. You can’t see in the pic, but the white top has a flattering square structure sewn into it.
Also Cos, this emerald green cashmere scarf is gorgeous, but because the last few years have not been cold here, I opted for this waffle textured, cobalt blue one.
Lastly, I’m eyeing this Everlane plaid coat. I don’t need it, but…..
I love it.

Yes, it’s possible to have two loves at once. Here are mine and I’ve been torn.
Ateliers-Auguste Monceau bag
Or the Sezane Farrow bag
Which one did I choose???….the Monceau bag
and I’m so happy! It’s a classic silhouette, not too big/not too small size, inside pockets, and beautiful leather. Loving this bag for life.
BTW: I had some shipping issues receiving this bag and the company stepped right in and took care of it for me. Great customer service.

I was wearing my mom’s heart necklace the other day and found myself touching it between my fingers often throughout the day. I didn’t realize wearing it would keep my mother’s memory in the forefront of my mind.
I started thinking about the other pieces of jewelry I kept for their memory.
My pearl earrings. These are my everyday earrings and I’ve had them since I was around 19-20 years old. They’re not too small or too big. In fact, I drew a circle for my mom to indicate the size of pearl earring I would like for Christmas. After Christmas, my mother told me she held on to that scrap of paper with the circle on it. She took it with her to different stores to be sure she bought the exact size I wanted.
My friendship bracelet. A year or so after high school graduation, I took my first road trip with friends to Calabasas County to see the Grateful Dead. It was only a few hours away from my hometown, but I could feel my world beginning to get bigger.
My breast cancer awareness bracelet. My ex mother in law gave me a breast cancer awareness bracelet when she found out my best friend of decades was diagnosed. It was so thoughtful of her and I appreciated the sentiment so much. However, whenever I see this bracelet in my jewelry box or wear it, it’s my best friend that I think of.
What’s your sentimental piece of jewelry?

What makes slouchy chic?
A bold lip color and statement necklace.
A California cool attitude.
Maintaining an “I’m not trying at all” vibe.
Pulling it all together with a pair of trendy glasses.
Being an Olsen twin.
