Look :: When all else fails, wear what you know

Outfit details: Shorts, shoes - AT. Necklace - Francesca's Collections. Tank, blazer - Bebe. Watch - Michael Kors / for sale in my shop here.

I haven't felt inspired by my wardrobe lately. Perhaps it's because my closet is full of summertime duds and I'm yearning for autumn fabrics, but the weather is still upwards of 80-degrees here. I suppose I'm stuck in limbo between seasons, and I'm not sure what to put on.

I was experiencing this dilemma the other night when I finally gave up, grabbed my favorite shorts and blazer, and left before I could change my mind. I wanted to wear something new and different, but nothing was speaking to me -- I had been trying on items for almost an hour. Usually I am not that high-maintenance, but when I am, I know it's time to wear what I already know looks and feels good.

That night, I saw a comedy show at UCB then hung out at the after-party until wee morning hours. Pictured are Brendon Small and my friends Bryn and Michael. I have nothing to say about that last photo except... Happy Halloween?

As for today, I'll be working on this beautiful mess. I moved everything I own into my bedroom to make space for the living-room-roommate! I actually love re-organizing my stuff (it's fun for me) but I just need to make myself get started. Wish me luck!


  1. Really cute outfit....and you guys surely look like yall had some laughs

    Xoxoxo http//

  2. I too an having a brain freeze on my outfit making lately. Good idea, go with what I know works!
    I have the looks in mind, but when i put them together, they seem too contrived or something.
    LOVE the black and whites!!!!!
    Also, maybe i'll peek in your closet for inspiration!

  3. LOVE the outfit as always!!! I had to finally cave in and get a blazer the other day...-Jessica

    P.S. I love your blog and enjoy reading it! =)

  4. I feel ya!! It's still in the 80s - 90s here, and it's killing me. You look adorable, though. I love that mirror behind you!!

  5. I am having the same issue in terms of dressing myself...... I stand and stare blankly at my closet for what seems like forever!

    I am always a fan of a blazer.... almost always looks good!

  6. Totally agree! If it ain't broke, don't fix it!

  10. You're welcome to come reorganize my stuff! HA! Love dressed up shorts look!

  11. I know what you mean. When you know what looks good on you, it’s ok to go back to what you know because you don’t have to think about it. And you look fantastic Stephanie!


  12. You are such a complete babe.
    Come be my flatmate and we can share clothes and be constantly inspired? x

  13. Wow, you look gorgeous here. Clearly your instincts were correct on this one- I looove the shorts/blazer combo. And I'm about to do another room organization as well- just have to start somewhere...

  14. Hi Stephanie! Thrilled to have found your blog through Nakate. :-) I've lived in (Upper) Michigan AND California...I love that we have that in common! :-)
