My California Casual Spring Style #FossilStyle

Outfit of the days are one of my favourite things to post on my blog, yet they’re far and few between lately.

I’m forever browsing the Forever 21 store at my local mall, and recently picked up a denim top. I already have one that I bought a few years ago at Target but only had worn it a handful of times. Now, comparing the two together — the one from Forever 21, has a more laidback look to it. Like you’re not trying so hard. Brown stitching, a softer material, and not as heavy to wear in this California weather.

So, thought I’d pull together this afford outfit and show you what I’m wearing, head-to-toe.

Outfit deets:
RayBans | Forever 21 top | Fossil Maya Hobo
Target denim | Faux suede slip-ons | Moto 360 watch (similar)
Etsy gold rings | Gold bracelet from my parents 10+ years ago

While I’m not used to carrying a larger bag on me anymore (I always seem to panic and lose items in the dark abyss of my purse), I’ve been wearing this one when I want to head out with my pals and I need to cart around a lot of stuff. For instance, blog photos…and I require an outfit change. It’ll all fit in this bag, ha!

Thanks for Fossil for sending over this sweet purse. It’s the Maya Hobo in the Marine shade, and available online. Yay!

Posin’ with my lunch. One of the biggest, and also one of the most expensive salads I’ve ever eaten. But it was good. And it had kale in it! You bet I ate every bite of it (because it was $$$ lol).

My wardrobe isn’t the most expensive one out there, but I thought you guys would be interested in some of my latest purchases (and PR samples: the Fossil purse). By the way, totally don’t own that keepcup in the photo above. I finally saw one at a store in Santa Cruz, and snapped a pic with it. Is that weird?

I love my pink slip-on’s so much I bought two pairs of them, heehee!

Disclaimer: If ya didn’t catch it already from all my mentions above, Fossil sent me the Maya Hobo for review.

Modeling my coworkers Fossil purchases

I took my co-workers newest Fossil purchases that she bought from the Toronto Premium Outlet Mall just off the 401, and took some photos of me modeling it. Haha!! It never gets old, seeing everyone’s new Fossil goodies.Fossil leather bag

Love the slouchy-ness of it. I can never seem to pick a favorite colour when it comes to Fossil leathers. I seem to appreciate the colour of every one I see. I mean look at that buttery yellow handbag. You can just tell how soft it is, by looking at how it falls when it’s on my shoulder. I don’t know the name of this purse because I have never seen it in stores, nor do I know if they even still sell it in the stores in other colours. 

My co-worker also snagged this soft genuine leather iPad case for forty bucks! fancy fossil caseipad case by fossilI haven’t made it out to the outlets yet because anytime I drive past them, the highway exit is just backed up forever from people trying to get in and shop. Seems like there’s a lot gems to be found.

What do you carry in your bag at all times? Mine is my iPad, my new Michael Kors wallet (I bought it at the outlets in the USA) and my cell. Everything else is interchangeable.

Fossil wearing Floral for Fall

I’ve been really into internet radio stations lately. More along the lines of indie rock that has nice mellow flow to it. Kno’ what I mean? A feel good kind of music. The other day, I tweeted out that I was listening to indie rock on Grooveshark.

The other stations I really love to listen to (which are more house music) or kinda loud are audioboxlive, protonradio.

But you know what? This coffee shop indie reminds me of the music they play (or should play) in the Fossil store. Kinda relaxing, but kinda indie and fun. Calls to everyone whether their age be young or old. Don’t you think it suits the Fossil theme?

Music brings back so many memories. I’m sure you all can relate. For instance, I really enjoy music from Louie Armstrong, Fats Domino, , Ella Fitzgerald and all those oldies. It brings me back to when I discovered them as a preteen. I had a periwinkle colored bedroom and drawings of Louie on my wall that I did when I was in Art School.

Jumping all over the place here with my blog post, but since I was talking about Fossil two paragraphs ago, I may as well keep going. My boss recently bought a Fossil purse but not from the flag store itself. She got it from The Bay so you probably won’t be able to get one of these again.sharis fossil 3

She also bought the same wallet I have, but hers is in brown. It’s crazy soft. Softest leather you’ll feel. Touch it through the screen, that’s how smooth and buttery it is. Trust me. K maybe the leather’s more smoother.sharis fossil 2

The color of the purse is a beautiful tomato red color. Perfect rusty red for Fall. sharis fossil 1

Here’s the other side of ‘er. It looks small in these pictures but the purse itself is bigger than my Fossil explorer crossbody. sharis fossil 4

Fossil shared their fresh floral prints on their blog the other day. Fossil Floral Fall. That’s what I’m calling it. Blue dress is A-1 in my books. The boots to go with it? I need those. I thought they stopped selling footwear? Anyone know for certain? Either way I have a pair of new booties I got from Target the other week. Similar style, which I’m digging.

The girl in the green dress reminds me of a brunette Julia Styles. Agree? Circle Yes/No for your answer please. Why did she pop into my head? Probably because I”m on the 5th season of Dexter (NO SPOILERS!) and she’s one of the main characters during that season.

Are you a fan of floral print?

Do you own anything from Fossil?

Are you ready for Fall?
