I'm breaking all the rules that my mom ever told me about not wearing denim with denim. Sorry, mama. Times have changed and honestly, when it comes to fashion, I'm just an advocate for self-expression - but with taste and class first and foremost.

This past Sunday was a fun-filled day. After church we found a really awesome gem in North Oakland called Tesmescal Alley. Bunch of cute shops, hipster coffee and vegan ice cream. Also, the best smelling horticultural shop ever - Crimson Hort. I absolutely love green plants and soy candles.

Afterwards, we headed over to my nephew's 2nd birthday party. Isn't he the cutest little peanut?! His favorite words are balloon, Elmo and Amen! We think he's the next "Pint-Sized Preacher."

Anyway, outfit details below...

Love,

Accessories really can make or break your outfit. I love this Spring time pouch from Rebecca Minkoff. It's such a fun shape and size. It fits everything except my phone - cards, keys, lip gloss, love notes ;) It's from last year's collection, but anything with fringe is a must this season.. like this Fallen Phone Crossbody bag

Anything embroidered is also a must right now. My belt is from Urban outfitters. Men's Prescription Glasses: Warby ParkerΒ
