This past weekend, on Saturday the 23rd to be exact, it was Alex and I's "official" 1 year (marriage) anniversary. I had no idea where he was taking me- he just told me to pack and I'd figure out the rest later. Well, of course, I was completely surprised when we arrived to the airport and headed first class (surprise #1!) to San Francisco. It's somewhere we had always wanted to go and everything there was beyond amazing. We explored the city Saturday & part of Sunday before heading back to Arizona- it was perfect. Here is a peek at our random adventure.

I'm not one to really care for other's opinions, and I let my wardrobe speak for itself. I was attracted to this Nasty Gal x Lazy Oaf dress when I was browsing Nasty Gal's site for the perfect birthday dress. This is a bit (lot!) different than a lot of what I have worn before, and it would get people talking more since I stepped across the border into Mexicali to go clubbing for my special night. I didn't want to take it off.
What do you think of outspoken outfits such as this?

Before I get to the story of this past weekend (one for the books!), here is a look I put together the weekend before. This outfit is one of my favorites because it's playful, yet very chic looking. You could always substitute the chunky heels I wore for some super cute flats, sneakers, or even wedges! The shoes are key- they're the essential that can take you from day to night in a snap!
How would you switch the outfit up?

I am not one to usually stray away from trying to combine my outfits completely, and this is one of those times. This Forever 21 top complemented these pants perfectly, and if I had a boring office job (no offense to anyone who does), I would totally wear rock it there.

I have to admit, this skirt has been hanging in my closet for about two years. I'm not sure if it was because I had nothing to wear it with, or I chose to not wear it at all. I recently purchased this Forever 21 knit sweater, and I thought it was a beautiful match; the colors and the fall vibes blended perfectly. The purse was bought from a local thrift store, and it has been one of my favorites ever since. It has such a cool vintage vibe- I couldn't resist! This is truly a combination that I will surely wear over and over again!

Working in a fashion-related environment can make me feel very pressured- pressured to purchase everything I see in magazines or pressured to look like celebrities. When this daisy crop sweater arrived on my desk, I was overjoyed. For some reason it felt like a crucial staple piece that absolutely had to be in my wardrobe, and now I'm glad it is. Have you started to notice this daisy trend in the fashion world? What do you think of it?

The first time I laid eyes on this Nasty Gal Fuse Shag Jacket from their Fall 2012 collection, I knew it was designed for me. Anyone that has known me since high school knows I was the girl to stand out, wearing bright colors and mixing pieces of clothing together that other girls would not. After deciding it was much too expensive for me, I decided to forget about it, cried a little on the inside, and moved on (SO dramatic right?). A few months later, it went on sale. SALE. A word we all love! I couldn't resist, and when it finally arrived, I proudly hung it at the front of my clothing rack. It's not yet cold enough to wear it (plus, everyone will think I look like Big Bird from Sesame Street), but it's me. I like to get people talkin'.

Days are shorter, nights get longer. I am in love with the fact that I can get home from work and it is already dark. It sounds weird, since most people would love just the opposite. Choosing outfits has become much easier- quite a fast process. Growing up in a cooler environment made me an expert in layering since I was in elementary school. Wherever you spend your winters, it can never be too cold to put in some stylish effort. I knew I wanted to wear this jacket I received from my then-boyfriend (now husband), but with something different, so I chose a simple, short dress and knee-high socks to balance my body temperature (can you believe Arizona is still in the 80's?!). How do you like this outfit twist?
