Grid Lines & Houndstooth

Happy New Year! I can’t believe the holidays have already come and gone. Was Santa good to you? I hope so! With some of my Christmas money (thank you, family!) I treated myself to some new goodies.

Ever since Club Monaco re-opened their doors in San Francisco 2 months ago, I’ve been drooling over their new space (decor inspiration galore) and clothes like crazy. Hoping there would be some great steals during their after-Christmas sale, I waited patiently… and was rewarded with this top and jacket! Paired with my new favorite skirt by local designer Alyssa Nicole, this outfit was a no-brainer.

79_02_clubmonaco_nicolette_dylan_parka_alyssanicole_houndstooth_skirtI wasn’t sure if mixing the grid lines and houndstooth patterns would work together, but I really liked the way it turned out! 🙂

79_04_chanel_necklace 79_05_clubmonaco_nicolette_alyssanicole_houndstooth_skirt 79_06_colehaan_cassidy_buckle_bootiesI bought these booties on a whim back in July. I remember it clearly because my feet were tired after a whole day of shopping, and I wanted comfortable shoes to walk home in. As it turned out, I chose the best boots to buy! They are so comfortable, and I have pretty much been wearing them every day since winter started. They go with everything!
