This is probably one of my favorite looks to date. There is nothing more sleek than a solid fitting pair of black coated skinny jeans. I love wearing an all black ensemble that showcases a really great looking pair of shoes. In this case, it’s my black and white snakeskin Sam Edelman Sophie wedged sandals.

This is my first navajo printed coat and I was actually surprised by how easy it was for me to pair an outfit around it. Initially, I wasn’t so sure I could pull off a “southwestern” look – it’s a little out of my norm style wise. However, this coat from Sam Edelman has a modern fitted look that looks incredible with a pair of skinny jeans and a spread lapel that looks amazing open or buttoned up (giving it it’s wrapped look). This is truly a well thought out coat.
One of my favorite outfit combinations is black skinny jeans with a solid black top and a camel colored leather jacket. Blacks with lighter browns is a fantastic color pairing. Adding a pair of calf-haired leopard print booties ties it all in and takes it up to the next level. Simple, stylish, and oh so cool! Continue reading Fierce→
Swagger: A demeanor of confidence, coolness, style, and togetherness. Someone with Swagger gives of an ora of comfortability with his/her self. Swagger is commonly referred to as Swag or Swagga.
A couple of days ago in an elevator I was told I had swagger. This came from an older gentleman whom I’ve casually ridden the elevator with a number of times now in my office building. Apparently, I have a reputation in the building for having incredible style and confidence. This was the first I’ve heard about this and am very flattered. So I thought it would be fitting to name this post, Swagger. Especially since I was wearing this outfit on that day. Continue reading Swagger→
I love casual Fridays. My AG skinny jeans, an over-sized sweatshirt and my camel colored Muubaa leather jacket make its weekly appearance. To take it up a notch, I threw on a pair of calf-haired leopard print Sam Edelman Petty booties.
While some may think it’s absurd to own a dry clean only sweat top, I won’t bat an eye. Especially if it’s made with quality fabrics, is intentionally over-sized, and has an amazing print. In this case, that print is leopard (a personal favorite) Continue reading Panthera Pardus with Timo Weiland→
Last year I was obsessed with cobalt blue skinny jeans (click here) – this year it’s this knee length cobalt blue coat from Free People. I have quite the coat collection already but nothing in this color or length. My first thought when I put this coat on, “I must get leopard print booties”.

Over the past couple of years, my go to shoe company has been Sam Edelman. The price point is higher than say, Steve Madden or sometimes Dolce Vita but the quality and fit have always been spot on. I don’t mind paying a little more if I see the value in it. I currently own 10 pairs of Sam Edelman shoes – booties, flats and sandals. I would branch out to their heels as well but so far everything is 3 inches and above. I am a kitten heel kind of women, I walk everywhere. I don’t like to wear anything higher than 2 1/2 inches (for mobility and comfort) but I still want the sex appeal of a high heel (JCrew is my go to for kitten heels).
One of my favorite booties from Sam Edelman is the Louie, a suede ankle boot with upper ankle cuffs and tassels, and a 2 1/4 inch heel. I love the western/boho look, and they work well with skinny jeans, leggings and dresses. I am amazed with how comfortable they are to walk in for long extended periods of time, even with the 2 1/4 inch stacked heel. I’ve trekked 7+ miles in these booties many times in a day without any issues. They have a nice cushioned fabric foot bed with a fabric lining and the best part is, they run true to size.
I love these booties so much, that I own two pairs – in whiskey and taupe. These are so popular now, that I doubt they will discontinue them anytime soon. In fact they’ve been coming out with new seasonal colors. The Louie’s typically retail for $160.00 – click here for more information.
What’s your go to look? Mine is rather basic but chic and well put together – a comfy draped cardigan, skinny jeans and booties. Effortless and prefect for a spring day in Oakland and San Francisco (layers are your friend!).
