In the old red white and blue

June 7, 2016 11 Comments

After moving to San Diego a few years back, I was quickly introduced to the brunch-as-a-way-of-life culture. I should probably do a whole post on San Diego’s relationship with brunches some day but for now, I’d like to talk about the relationship between My Closet and these brunches. The mornings really are the best time to get going in a nice piece (and oh, the pictures turn out great too).

Last Sunday was one such day, and I was out in an elegant all-white outfit. This outfit is a two piece, but I decided to wear it in a way to give the appearance of a romper.  I got the top and the bottom separately from Nordstrom (again…Memorial day sale). Not only do they go well together, they also pair great with a ton of other clothing on their own. Will be putting up pictures of separate pairings soon with other pieces soon.


The sandals from Michael Kors are the perfect comfortable shoes to walk and as with most of my shoe choices, I love how the color on these contrast against the clothing. The espadrille sandals have been a personal favorite for me recently, and I can see myself using them a lot over the summer. This sandal combines it with the tie-up styles (something that’s quite in trend these days) and are super comfortable to walk in.


Also have on my go-to bag for all those times when I’m fussing over which bag to carry. Maybe its just me but I really feel it complements every combination. Sorry guys!! You will be seeing more of it


This being a pretty cold morning, I took along a denim jacket….again a safe piece that cant really go wrong. Guess that’s the theme of this post then 😀


Links to the outfits are here below (most on sale!!!):

Bottom: White Embroidered Eyelet Short from Nordstrom
Top: Crop eyelet tank from Nordstrom
Shoes: Espadrille Wedges from Michael Kors
Outerwear: Denim Jacket from Daisyshoppe
Bag: Thea Leather flat wallet crossbody from Tory Burch

Also I couldn’t resist putting up pictures of  delicious food from  Sugar and Scribe  and a gorgeous house we found on our way which almost makes you feel like you are in Santorini 🙂

    First off I want to say wonderful blog! I had a quick question that I’d like
    to ask if you do not mind. I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear
    your mind before writing. I’ve had difficulty clearing my mind in getting my
    ideas out there. I do enjoy writing however
    it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are wasted simply
    just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or tips?
