Hello! How was your weekend? Mine was unexpected yet surprisingly very enlightening. But more on that later 😉 Here are a few flat lays from last week’s looks with more and more wardrobe recycling. Enjoy!
Anyone read or watched the movie, “Holes,” by Louis Sachar? It was one of my favorite books growing up and, when creating this flat lay, I remembered the dangerous yellow spotted lizards from this blazer and leopard print top combination…hence the title. Hah.
If there’s one thing I should have brought, it’s a basic black skirt. How can you forget a must-have piece like that? I did, but fortunately, I had one of my LBDs and layered this top over it (thankfully it’s a bit billowy) for the illusion of a skirt. Bam!
Side note: On this day I commuted to the office. I haven’t commuted since my SoFA Philippines days. Got a little nostalgic. Just a little.

Yes, one of the first flat lays with denim. Crazy. Although it’s technically fall, when you’re in sunny California, wearing bright pink doesn’t matter. And when you’re here for just another few weeks, you’re going to get out as much as you can from it!
With a top that has a print you want as the focal point, you can reflect the rest of your pieces from it. As simply shown, I took the pinky-purple from the flowers and highlighted them even more with a pink cardigan. A plain, solid cardigan can go a long way to bring an entire outfit together.

Just like “Pretty in Pink,” watch out for your statement prints and in this case, it’s the pants. To contain its wild print I wore this top which is not only really fun with its details, but the fact it’s just plain and black has allowed it to be worn with so many other looks because it pulls and draws everything in while adding a little flair.

Until next time!
