OOTD: Twinning in monocrome

Accidentally twinning with my bff!

Might I add she's pregnant and STILL more fashionable than I am. Ladies (and gents) meet my BFF, Rachel aka 5oclocksunday, and her little baby girl bump! These pictures were taken as we headed out for our afternoon coffee and lunch date. It's normal to eat lunch at 4pm right? Glad I found a friend whose eating habits are as often and sporadic as my own.

Now onto the clothes! Rachel showed up in a pleated black dress from H&M and these white platform sneakers. I have a similar pair -my favorites- from Grates. Meanwhile, I am absolutely loving this flowy white top by I.Am.Gia (similar here). The movement in the arms make me smile and all I kept thinking while wearing this was, "Where's my Beyonce wind at?" I chose to pair it with a high-waisted XIX palms skirt - you may remember the brand from my last post. Finally, I had to throw in my new favorite winter trend: metallic rose gold shoes. These particular mules are from Boohoo and so affordable.  Note: I'm currently screaming #ICan'tEven! I topped the look off with my two most important coffee date accessories: Rach & the bump.

Worn two ways: Oversized Sweater

Worn two ways: Oversized Striped Sweater by The Knot Sisters

I've been following The Knot Sisters on Instagram for a while now, and have gotten their incredible clothes from various boutiques in the past. I love the brand's laid back style/aesthetic and the fact that they were founded in Orange County (basically my second home) and that their "casual cool girl" style reflects that. All that being said, when I got invited to their holiday party at their pop-up shop this winter I had to make the trip down to meet the founders in person! I dragged my sisters, Savannah LaBrant, and bestie, Rachel Richardson, with me as well.... OF COURSE! The Knot Sisters owners, Cheryl and Jamie, are incredible boss babes that have been friends for years, might I also throw in that they have amazing personal style themselves. These besties were constantly mistaken as sisters, so when they started their own business and it came time to name it, it only made sense to let people know that they were kNOT SISTERS. 

One of the favorite pieces that I took home was this striped sweater so I decided to show you how to wear it two different ways. 

Look 1: Bundled up and casual

Featured pieces: Oversized striped sweater by Knot Sisters

This second look is my slightly dressy, yet still casual, alternative. I loved pairing the sweater with a midi skirt, and dressing it down even more with a sneaker (similar item here). I have genuinely LIVED in this sweater since I got back to cold SF after my Hawaiian getaway. It's a go to piece for me currently, and I'm obessed with how cozy it is and how easy it is to style.
