Finding Inspiration at Fashion Island

fashion island backgroundOn the occasional Saturday my husband and I will make a little trip down to Fashion Island in Newport Beach because well, we just love Fashion Island.  An Orange County shopping attraction, Fashion Island has beautiful architecture, is close to the ocean and just oozes with an upscale, beachy vibe.

I know a lot of fashionistas love to rock the ever-so popular moto jacket however, my style is not so much rocker but more understated and classic.  I’ve had this simple and fitted leather jacket by Guess for more than a decade and I still love it.

Nothing says fall more than a great scarf.  The one I’m wearing is an infinity scarf from Nordstrom and it’s 100% silk.  I love how soft and luxe it feels and I especially appreciate the muted colors so that I can wear it with virtually anything.

A great pair of booties are a fall/winter must-have.  The ones I have on are the Challenge Booties by Seychelles and I absolutely love them!  They are so simple in design yet so incredibly comfortable and chic.  I particularly like the shape of these booties.  The tip is subtly squared off; not too pointy and not too round.  Believe it or not, there aren’t many booties with this shape! Love!

The best part of my Fashion Island outing? Meeting one of my style and fashion inspirations, Chriselle Lim! She was so incredibly sweet and gracious and looked amazing despite the fact that she will be giving birth in just a few months!
