Heavy Metal Jacket

A leather jacket is a true closet staple. Unfortunately for me, I lost mine last spring so I have been on the hunt for a new one. After months of searching with no real luck, I stumbled into Zara where I found exactly what I didn’t know I was looking for.

 

This season I’m trying a new bold look in a metallic silver leather jacket! Truly obsessed!

Long legs ahead: A Jean Story

At 5’11” I’ll be honest, it is a challenge to find a good pair of jeans. My requirements are simple, fits the waist so you can’t tell I just a massive lunch, long enough so my ankles don’t show when I walk and comes in a medium or dark wash. I don’t think I’m asking for much, but unfortunately this is one tall order to fill – pun intended.

In order to still manage winter seasons without freezing my stems off I now look towards Zara to help a girl out. Recently I discovered my new jean obsession – the ‘Essential Fit’ flared skinny jeans – while browsing the local mall. These jeans give me that oh so cool 70’s boho style, the length actually is long enough and best part is…they were only $30!

Style of the Day: Pop of Color in the Office

Have you ever been told you’re an Autumn, Spring, or maybe a Winter? Well if you haven’t don’t worry, but for a lot to us we may be guilty of filling out those quizzes in the back of a Cosmopolitan just waiting to find out what color we truly are.

I have been told I’m a Summer and all that black and grey I wear does nothing for me. In fact they told me to get rid of black all together! Ugh have you seen my closet – it’s 60% black and 30% grey…I am not about to give up my favorite color and start my wardrobe over, though she may have a point. We shouldn’t be afraid to go outside our comfort zone and try new colors or prints. Fashion is about having fun with your style and taking risks. So in tribute to my Summery completion here is my pop of color I tried on for work today.

Style of the Day: Casual Fridays

It’s Friday! My favorite day of theweek for so many wonderful reasons. Today as a special treat for a long week in the office, I went out to Coup Des Tartes from some French desserts with the bestie.

It was all about being casual today with my boyfriend button down and black skinny jeans from Zara. 

   
     

Style of the Day: Grey in the City

Hey Guys!

I’m in the New York City for the weekend to visit my Dad at a conference. I can’t wait to write more about the trip, but here is the start with outfit featuring different shades of grey.

This was the theatre night where my mom and I attended Peter Pan. Well interesting side note-Obama was at the play across the street and the play couldn’t even start until he was settled in his theatre! Crazy right? 

So after all the secret service commotion and flying fairies, we headed to the cafe at Rockafeller Center for my Ada’s company happy hour. We had such a fabulous time taking advantage of the company’s open bar and buffet that we weren’t ready to end our night. So what do you do after some wine and tapas? Obviously you go to the top of the tallest building that’s closest to walk to.

This grand idea led us to The Top of the Rock. If you haven’t gone before I really do recommend it. The views were gorgeous especially at sunset when the golden hues dripped along the skyscrapers until finally little flicker of lights began to come on from inside the windows. It was truly a perfect first day in the city.

   

  
       

   
 

Style of the Day: The Teddy Bear Coat

is it too early to wear coats?! Okay absolutely yes it is let’s be  real-I live in the desert. However, when the Nordstrom sale starts how could I resist buying my new winter wear with those discounts?!

I found a coat so fitting to my style it was truly a furrtuitious find! (Get it?) As you know by reading my bio or just by guessing by the name of the blog, I love bears! My nickname is Sarah Bear and my brothers just call me Bear. 

So this coat is by Kenneth Cole and called ‘The Teddy Bear’. It’s cozy, comfy, and streetstyle chic. Check it out!  

 

Style of the Day: Black Calvins

Don’t you hate it when you’re in a rush to leave the house for work, but it feels like you have nothing to wear? I feel like this happens to me every week! One way to combat this is to have key staples in your closest ready to go. 

I ran into this problem once again this week, but luckily my black Calvin Klein dress had just come back from the dry cleaners. You can never go wrong with a black dress and especially not a classic work dress. I just added some loafers and I was out the door in no time!
