With all of the traveling that I tend to do, it’s tough to pack “outfits,” so I usually opt for pieces that are interchangeable—hence my gravitation towards the color black. I love these neutral pieces because they can be dressed down like so, or they can each be bumped up a notch with other pieces.

You know me, I love me some army candy. For the past few years, I’ve been looking for a mens style watch—yes, I’m a little late on the trend—but I didn’t want to wear something so, well, trendy.
While I adore the cool oversized Michael Kors watches like this one and the Marc by Marc Jacobs rose gold watches like this one, I have been holding out for something that I’ve never seen on any other woman (so far).
Well, I finally got the one I’ve been holding out for from my hubby for my birthday. I love how masculine and retro this NIXON watch is and it looks great stacked with my vintage watchband bracelet that I wear almost every day. The best part is that it’s stretchy band makes it comfortable to push up on my arm when I’m busy working. You likey?

Andi (my stylin' mama) circa 1970
Growing up in the recession of the 80’s, we couldn’t afford the latest fashions, but my mom made sure to dress both herself and me in them in anyway we could—making our own clothes, reworking or embellishing thrift store finds, scouring sales and discount shops, or mixing designer pieces with some more affordable ones, we made it work.
I guess the apple didn’t fall far from the tree.
I recently found this this vintage top that we both shared when I was a kid (yes, we shared clothes). It is perfect with the wide leg Stella McCartney jeans that I recently scored from TJMaxx for $20 (yes, 20 bucks). Pair that with sensible, yet stylist platform-ish shoe, and we’re read to look like we stepped off the pages of the glossies.
