If you follow on me on Instagram (@spotted.chic), you already know that I had a major hair cut and I dyed my hair to something that’s not super natural, so this is my last post with my “old” hair. Before I got my hair revamped, I went to Berkeley to hang out with my friend and we had a pamper day. I wanted to keep my look casual and comfortable, so keep reading if you want to see my go-to comfy, but still presentable outfit. Continue Reading
Since it’s technically not winter for a few more weeks, I’m not retiring my bright clothes just yet. Fall this year has been a roller coaster of emotions as some days are absolutely beautiful and others are so frigid, I can’t leave the house without two jackets! Thankfully, when Dylan came to visit last month, the weather was gorgeous and we were able to wonder around Palo Alto. Also, this year, I’m excited to announce that I will be doing a version of Blogmas on Spotted.Chic! Continue reading for all the exciting details! Continue Reading
It happens to all of us. Whether it’s a kink in your hair or general bed head, we all have bad hair days. You wake up in the morning and it looks like The Night at the Museum happened in your hair. If you don’t have time in the morning to tame the wild beast, the next best option is to mask its existence with a hat. Continue Reading
The day Houston hit the low 70’s, I immediately unpacked all my sweaters, scarves, and boots. I was prepared to layer sweater upon sweater before I realized that I was in Houston and the most layers I would be wearing was a maximum of four.
As a person who is very indecisive, layering is my jam – I can wear all my favorite clothes at once. I think part of the key to layering is mixing and matching different textures and prints. The goal is to not look like the Michelin man.
Jacket – Bernard Lafond // Sweater – Topshop // Pants- J Brand // Boots – Steve Madden // Scarf – French Connection // Sunglasses – Ray-Ban // Purse – Proenza Schouler // Eyeshadow – Nars in Brousse // Blush – Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in Exposed // Lipstick – Tom Ford in Black Orchid
Chunky sweaters are your best friends for the winter. They are warm, come in a variety of designs, like this geometric one from Topshop, and most importantly, comfortable as hell. It’s like, am I wearing something or am I still encompassed in my goose down comforter? You decide. Since wearing oversized clothes can engulf your body, wearing some skinny leather pants will not only give your shape back, but you’ll also look like a BAMF. And with these Steven Madden boots, WHOO, you will wreck shit up.
Once, you have your shape back, you want to immediately cover it with a big oversized jacket. The jacket is key because it gives you an unexpected entrance. You look like hobo when you enter a room, but when you take it off, BAM, all eyes will be on you.
Now, it’s time for the add-ons. During the colder, windier months, your neck is left quite vulnerable. The easy answer, a circle scarf. No need to worry about arranging your scarf, all you have to do is wrap it a couple times around your neck and you’re good to go.
For makeup, I would go easy on the eyes and cheeks and really focus on the lips. Dark, vampy lips are all the rage and since you’re eyes are covered by sunglasses, a bold lip will add just the right amount of pazzazz.
