When I first started experimenting with my personal style in high school, I admit that I was a shopper who was much more focused on quantity than quality. But over the years I've come to learn that I much prefer having less pieces in my closet that each are much more well made in terms of fit, construction, and material. Nosbyn is one of the brands I have found that hits the mark on all those areas, and their minimalist aesthetic also makes for pieces that can easily become long time staples in one's closet, such as this white-button down and these light blue shorts.

I have also become a huge fan of Dagne Dover, a new handbag brand that makes bags that have a compartment inside for every possible thing you could think of! (Literally!) Their large tote which I'm wearing in this look has a compartment for your laptop and a removable pocket for your water bottle! I love that these bags still have a very designer look to them because I normally find that I have to compromise style for extreme functionality. 

With this outfit, I wanted to mix in workwear inspired pieces such as this tote bag and these pumps and create a look that looked more whimsical and fairytale-like. It was certainly a great outfit for going out for lunch at Santana Row with my boyfriend, Chris, and fellow fashion blogger, Ally Gong! It was the first time I got to meet her in person and she is super sweet, down to earth, and fun to be around. As you can see, we coordinated our outfits together with our color palette too :) Be sure to visit her blog too if you're looking for more fashion inspiration, and also if you want to find more Bay Area based bloggers to follow! x
