calivintage + ralph lauren, day three

aaaand today marks part three of my series of outfits that i styled for ralph lauren denim & supply. i can’t explain exactly what it is (perhaps it’s the socal girl in me) that was drawn to this dress, but something about the voluminous and romantic silhouette balanced out by a dark and luxurious black fabric was calling my name. i immediately went for my dark floppy hat and matching red lipstick for a witchy vibe, and added the vintage blouse as the little touch of innocent to an otherwise dark look. once i stepped outside, i asked myself why i don’t more frequently wear these types of flowy skirts. i was prancing all over, swishing the fabric around my legs and watching it billow in the breeze. oh, and the best part is that this dress doubles as a nightgown. after we went out for lunch, i took off the belt and the high heels and plopped onto the couch for a mid-afternoon nap.

calivintage + ralph lauren, day two

calivintage + ralph lauren, day two

with the holidays upon us, things have been just a little bit crazy around here! as soon as i finish writing this post, i’m jumping in the car to make the 7 hour drive to my hometown of redlands, ca where i’ll be visiting with family and working from the los angeles office for the next couple of weeks. it’s not quite a vacation because i’ll still be working, but it will be nice to have a change of setting and to be able to see my family when i get home at the end of the day. and i’m super excited to sit around the kitchen table with my grandma, mom, aunt, and sister to make tamales for christmas! yum!

but before i head out, i wanted to share part two of my series of outfits that i styled for ralph lauren denim & supply (you can see the first look here). these photos were shot on a sunny, albeit deceptively chilly, weekend afternoon. me and the boy headed over to blue bottle cafe in the jack london area of oakland for a nice hot cup of coffee and a stroll around the neighborhood. it’s an interesting mix of old buildings, some that have fallen by the wayside, and others that have been resurrected in the form of cool restaurants and fancy lofts. i like walking around and seeing the way the area has changed even in just the past 5 years that i’ve lived here. as we strolled around talking about nothing in particular, we could see the light bouncing off the side of this old brick building from a few blocks away and knew it would be a nice spot to hang out and goof off while drinking our coffee and enjoying the last of the light on a nice weekend day.

calivintage + ralph lauren, day one

calivintage + ralph lauren, day one

today i’m excited to share a fun little series that i’ve been working on with ralph lauren denim & supply. you wouldn’t believe my excitement when they asked me if i’d be interested in styling three looks from their new collection! pretty exciting stuff! they had so much stuff to choose from, that it was actually a challenge to narrow it down to only three looks! for my first outfit, i opted to go for a very nautical look built around this pretty much perfect sailor stripe shirt. over the years, i’ve picked up a number of different striped shirts, but i’ve had a hard time finding one that fits exactly the way i want. it’s funny how such a simple item can be so difficult to find, but when i got this shirt in the mail, it was love at first sight. if you are still on the hunt for one like this, i highly recommend it.

anyway, there are a few more photos than usual because the weather was just so nice out and we were having a bit too much fun playing with the light as the sun set behind the oakland high rises near lake merritt. i love this spot because it’s such an interesting contrast between the urban setting to the west and such a lovely natural estuary to the east with pretty migratory birds floating around in the evening sky.
