Wearing: Kendra Scott earrings / Chanel spring lipstick / Gap turtleneck / denim jumper c/o eShakti (sold out, visit eShakti.com for more options) / faux shearling jacket (on major sale!!) / JW Anderson handbag / Kendra Scott ring / Kendra Scott nail polish / Gucci spring slides

Jumpers were a huge trend on the runways of New York Fashion Week. In addition to being a hot runway trend, fashion insiders were already wearing the trend on the streets of New York Fashion Week in September. This my friends, is a trend you cannot ignore.

When eShakti approached me to test out one of their custom fit dresses, I jumped at the chance. They have this fabulous denim jumper as part of their dress collection; and it is ideal for transitioning from winter into spring. Not to mention, it is a denim jumper which combines two hot spring trends; denim and jumpers. Love that!

There is something about a jumper which reminds me of my childhood. I went to Catholic school for a few years and we had to wear jumpers. In addition to my school uniform, jumpers were a popular fashion trend in the 1980’s, and well into the early 1990’s when jumpers transformed from thick strapped dresses over blouses into spaghetti strapped dresses over tee shirts. But there is something more grown-up about the trend this time around.

This time, the jumper trend does not have rules. You can wear anything underneath any sized strappy dress and it is “street style” approved. I love this denim jumper by eShakti since it combines the denim trend, the jumper trend, and a custom fit which is fabulous for shorter gals like me.

When you order from eShakti, they ask you where you want the dress to hit you on your leg, how tall you are, and for any modifications. For this denim jumper, the length could be maxi, midi, or mini. I chose above the knee. They also ask how tall you are, so this helps ensure the hemline hits in the right place. Works like a charm!

I wasn’t thinking about what I planned to wear underneath this jumper when I ordered it. When worn over a turtleneck, as in this post, the dress is a bit snug. Worn alone, which I plan to do in warmer months, it fits perfectly. If you plan to layer a form fitting jumper, or any jumper for that matter, order one size up to leave room for what you plan to wear underneath.

This isn’t the first time I have ordered from eShakti. I have a fun pink skirt from them I ordered a few years ago. The quality is quite good for the pricing. The fabric holds up after being washed, and the stitching stays in place. I am pleased with how well their clothing is made.

My denim jumper is sold out, but there are plenty more jumpers, including denim jumpers, in stock from eShakti. For more customizable clothing options, visit eShakti.com.

Happy winter! Now that Christmas is over, we can all think about shopping for ourselves again; not that some of us didn’t already do that between Thanksgiving and Christmas. Yes, I am guilty!

I wanted to let you know about Daniel Wellington watches, and how fabulous they are as a gift to ourselves! If you follow me on Instagram, you may have noticed a few posts by me, of this fabulous classic black Daniel Wellington watch. It is a great gift to give to someone, but even better gift to give to ourselves!

The watch has a chic silhouette, and the watch face is easy to read. I love the rose gold paired with black my watch. Rose gold is the “IT” metallic hue right now, yet it is still classic; making this watch both fashionable and timeless. Love that!

As you can see, I have been wearing it quite often. This is my current go-to outfit. The over-sized sweater paired with my Pierce bag is not only cozy, but extremely comfortable. Love that! The Daniel Wellington watch just makes it all the more perfect for daily wear.

If you are seeking the perfect gift for yourself after the holidays, or a fabulous new watch for the new year, then definitely check out Daniel Wellington watches! I have teamed up with Daniel Wellington, so if you visit DanielWellington.com, you can save an additional 15% off your purchase using coupon code BAYAREA. They carry both men’s and women’s watches, so there is something for everyone!

Also, if you have been wondering how to style an oversize sweater this winter season, they look great with flare jeans, skinny jeans, leggings, or over a pencil skirt with boots. If you want to pair it with a pencil skirt, look for a pencil skirt which hits at the knees, or just below the knees.

I wore my oversize sweater with flare jeans, and my Daniel Wellington watch to meet my friend Laura from Have Need Want for brunch earlier this month. We took a walk on a path which ran along the water in Capitola. It was so quaint and relaxing! You can see the scenery in the photos above, isn’t it pretty!

Cozy sweater dress

Wearing: Kendra Scott earrings (new for winter-love them!) / MAC Lipstick / Kenzo sweater dress / coat (old, also love this one under $300) / nail polish c/o Essie Party on a Platform / JW Anderson bag / gold sculptured ring / booties (old, also love this pair under $200)

Cool, fall weather is finally here! To sweeten the fall-weather pot, we actually had rain over the weekend! Yes! Rain! We need it soooooo bad! In order to stay cozy, yet still look dressed up enough for church during this cold, rainy weather, I wore this Kenzo striped sweater dress on Sunday.

When I first spotted this sweater dress last August, I knew I had to have it. It cost a little bit more then I normally like to spend on clothing, but I am so glad I splurged. This sweater dress is soft, cozy, and comfortable. The comfort level is out of this world! With the addition of my favorite coat from last year, I was ready for anything the sky tossed at me. Or should I say dumped? It was raining cats and dogs on Sunday!

After church, we stopped in at Rosie McCann’s on Santana Row for brunch. It was so yummy! My daughters enjoyed a chicken sandwich, which they LOVED, and my son ate chocolate chip pancakes from the kids menu. He said they were “amazing!” My husband I ate omelettes, which were delicious! If you are local to the San Francisco Bay Area, definitely check out Rosie McCann’s in San Jose, at Santana Row.

I am looking forward to wearing this cozy sweater dress over, and over again this fall season; as well as the upcoming winter season! Have you splurged recently on an item, and found it was worth every penny? If so, please share in the comments below!
