There are treasures to be found right now at Madewell, The Gap and Zara. My close friend Misha came to town from Santa Barbara and her close friend from Houston, Ali, of Daughter in Law Diaries. We had lunch at True Food Kitchen and then we hit Madewell, The Gap and Zara. Here are some things we found and how to wear them.
The List of must haves:
1. The Blazer: Madewell charade blazer
This is Misha (who looks like a French goddess in this outfit and glasses!) at Madewell Santa Monica.

This is me in the sunglasses that Misha is wearing by Raen:
2. The Beaded mini skirt from Zara:
This skirt fits perfectly, it is a bit heavy but really looks great on. It looks designer and is a fair price!
3. Gap ballet flats:
These flats fit like a glove, are cut right for most feet and with the on-line discount are under $30. I have in every fun color (no neutrals; they look cheaper--if you buy a neutral or black flat make it an investment). PS--Important: Go half to a full size smaller--I had to put insoles in my 8.5's!
Here is me in the flats. These are my Valentine's Day flats!
4. Gap colorful jeans:
Love these Gap skimmer printed jeans; be sure to take a closer look--they are gorg!:

5. An affordable, buttery soft leather Gap tote: In so many great colors!
