Outfit Notes: My choker necklace was a Labor Day Sale purchase from Express. It sold out that weekend (so hopefully some of you got it when I first posted it!) and unfortunately they haven't re-stocked it. But I just purchased the similar option I linked above for myself since it has a bit more silver in it than this one. And in general I'm liking choker necklaces as a fun way to update a look/add a trend without breaking the bank, so I'm excited to add another to my collection.

Outfit Notes: I wore this to a RewardStyle Blogger Dinner on Monday night, and if there's any time to dress up and wear your trendiest pieces, it's a fashion blogger event! For me, my trendiest piece is this cold shoulder + bell sleeve top! It's one of my favorite purchases this fall and now on sale for under $30! For size reference, normally I wear an XS in Express tops and I am wearing a 0 in this. (I'm not used to numerical sizing for tops so I got lucky when this worked out.) I also dusted off my favorite (albeit very uncomfortable) Zara heels for this, and sadly I cannot find anything remotely similar to these!

Outfit Notes: This is my only pair of High Waisted jeans from Express, and earlier this week I had a question about how they compare to Mid-Rise jeans. For me, Mid-Rise jeans hit just under my belly button. High Waisted Jeans are about 2 inches higher and cover my belly button.

Outfit Notes: This is the outfit I wore to the Air Show I mentioned in Wednesday's Post. It was a hot day and I knew I'd be doing a lot of walking so comfort was key! I was also lucky to catch the fine print in the event promotional materials about only clear (NFL Stadium Approved) bags allowed through security at this event on a military base. The one I ordered was just the right size for my essentials, and I loved the front pouch for quick access to my phone. The crossbody style was also very convenient so I had free hands to hold my phone, food, etc.

Favorite Blog Question this Week:
By "favorite" question, I really just mean it was an easy one for me to answer! I wanted to post it here in case anyone else may have the same question. Earlier this week, Lauren wrote this comment on one of my posts, "Can I ask if you use some sort of sunless tanning as part of your beauty routine?"
100% yes. I use sunless tanner daily, year round. In San Diego you never know when it's going to be 85° in in January and you need to wear shorts, so I just prefer to keep my "glow" ready year round. In a nutshell I use Jergens Natural Glow most days, with some Norvell Foam about once a week when I really want to boost my color. I gave the full scoop on favorite Sunless Tanning products and techniques in this post.
Favorite Style Challenge: Wear What Where
If you follow me on Instagram, you might have noticed that throughout the month of September I used #septemberwearwhatwhere on some of my outfits. That's my way of indicating that I was playing along with the Wear What Where Instagram Style Challenge and using those prompts as a sstarting point for creating an outfit. For example with this outfit the prompt was "Berry Ready for Fall" so I wore a berry-colored top. It comes in handy as a starting point for putting together an outfit on those days when I'm not feeling especially inspired.
That said, I'm excited to be co-hosting October Wear What Where starting tomorrow! If you need outfit inspiration feel free to join us by using the prompts below to inspire your outfits, and use #octoberwearwhere if you post them on Instagram. And if you want to win some great prizes for your participation please check out this Instagram post for details!
I have a feeling on October 11 it might be a little difficult to narrow down what to wear!
