styling session - denim skirt

happy thursday friends!!! 

this week has felt soooo long and it’s been so exhausting! The babies are both going through a kinda challenging phase - - definitely testing my patience so most days i have so little energy to get anything done but I’m trying to stay on track and I think finally getting a new styling session helps!

So here it is - DENIM SKIRT

I love denim skirts... I think they weren’t so popular a few years ago but they definitely made a comeback in the last couple years and I am glad they did! I am definitely not a fan of the really tight, low-rise short denim skirts from back in the day, but this one I am styling is perfect! it doesn’t have a tight fit, they are high rise and the length is perfect! i love the raw hem plus it’s super affordable and great quality! I am wearing a size 0 for reference, so I would recommend sizing down and I am also wearing the light wash but I will also link the darker wash! 

{ outfit 1 }

wearing a small in the top & my usual size 8 in the leopard slides - both run true to size, my top is on sale for under $30 and comes in five colors! this bag has been my go-to since i got it when i am not using my diaper bag, crossbody strap so easy to use and its the perfect size, under $70 and comes in two other colors - this one is labeled as light grey but it looks more like tan/taupe color, very pretty for spring


{ outfit 2 }

wearing a small in the top and sized up 1/2 size in the sandals


{ outfit 3 }

wearing a small in the tee & i always size up 1/2 a size in vans


{ outfit 4 }

wearing a small in the sweater blazer, comes in 8 colors & i sized up 1/2 a size in these mules, also come in black and white - they go with everything and the heel height is perfect!


check out my instatories to see these outfits in action and for more detail 

have a beautiful day!

madewell try-on session

happy happy 

F R I D A Y !!!!!

yay! its friday..hello weekend! it will be one of my last free weekends because i will be back to work next week and will be working most saturdays since it works best with our schedules.. oh how different our lives will be when i am back at work.. luckily i only work twice a week. we will survive haha!

anyway, onto more exciting things! i have been going to madewell a lot lately because i am in love with their spring arrivals! like seriously SO SO CUTE! i have always loved madewell but for some reason i don't tend to shop there during the fall/winter as much because i just feel like i won't wear those items as much living in san diego. but their spring and summer pieces are my faaaave!! mostly because i can wear a lot of it pretty much year round here and they are just so cute, casual and effortless. i am obsessed. so i tried on some things when i was there last a few days ago and i wish i had tried on way more but as always i took forever trying on the things i did try on so i had little time to get more pieces to try! i know, i need to work on talking less and moving quicker haha! anyways, tell me your faves in the comments! the videos with sizing info are in my instastories, so click HERE to get to my insta!




















thank you so much for stopping by! and if you haven't done so already don't forget to follow me on INSTAGRAM and LIKETOKNOW.IT so you don't miss a post! also feel free to DM me or leave a comment if you have any questions on anything!

BEST dress EVER !!


we made it through another week.. and OMG it felt like such a blur and i have no idea why. i just kept feeling like it was monday over and over it defintiely felt like a long week. not even sure exactly what i did.. the days just mush together.. don't know whether its because i have pregnancy brain or what. its crazy. i feel like there was so much going on this week but at the same time i'm thinking to myself, sheesh did i even completely get anything done on my to do list this week?! definitely didn't get as many blog posts up for you guys like i had planned (oops) and this one is kinda late but ya know, do what you can right? i've been wanting to share these looks with you because i am seriosuly obsessed with this dress.. so lets stop the nonsense rambling and get to it! ha! 

ok so this is seriously the BEST DRESS EVERRRRRRR! and if you don't like this dress, i really need to know why because it is literally the most universally flattering dress ever. looks amazing on all body types, its obviously non-maternity but it looks so cute on us preggers, i cannot get enough. i feel like i need all of the colors! its perfect to dress down but totally works dressed up too and it is great transitional piece for fall, so i thought it would be fun to style the dress three ways for fall! get excited!! 

|| LOOK ONE ||

this look is perfect for the beginning of fall, especailly where i live and it takes a looooong time for temps to actually drop and feel like fall. like always i kept the look pretty simple, but added this lightweight leopard scarf - i don't know about you but i CANNOT get enough of leopard print for fall, i have always loved leopard print so i am so happy its hottttt right now for fall! anywho added the scarf and threw on some classic brown booties to complete this look. this outfit is perfect for a semi-warm fall day, no exactly cool enough for a jacket or sweater. when it does get cooler, just thrown on a chunky cardi or a classic moto style leather jacket and you're good to go! 

|| outfit details ||

dress || scarf, another option here || booties (last year), other great pairs here, here and here

|| SHOP look ONE ||


|| LOOK TWO ||

you know i had to have an outfit that's super casual and perfect for every day and this is it! super comfortable and easy for running errands and going about your normal day. denim jackets are so easy to throw on duing the day when its cooler, add a cool baseball cap, especially on those days we may have waited too long to wash our hair (HEHE) and my favorite sneakers -- comfortable yet stylish. you can also add a chunky scarf for when its much cooler and bam, done! easy peasy! 

|| outfit details || 

dress || denim jacket, other options here and here || hat, also here || sneakers, also love these and these

|| SHOP look TWO ||



the ultimate fall look! i mean nothing to me screams fall than a long cardi, OTK boots and a wool fedora hat, i mean right?!? just like the other outfits throw on a blanket scarf or cute infitiny scarf and you'd be set for those chilly crisp fall days! i love this outfit because i feel like its appropriate to wear during the day -- lunch or brunch with the girlfriends, weekend day visit to a winery -- but also works great for night -- date night with your special someone or drinks with the ladies -- such a versatile outfit, versatile dress! i'm all about the versatility.. and did i mention its also super comfortable and flattering!! hahaha 

|| outfit details ||

dress || cardigan, also love this and this || OTK boots (last year), similar herehere and here || hat, similar here, here and here 

|| SHOP look THREE ||


so which outfit was your favorite?

also if you ever recreate any of my looks please, please DM me a pic on instagram - @SASSANDSUN !! i would love to see and share! 

have an amazing friday and CHEERS to the WEEKEND!!

happy MONDAY everyone!

hope everyone had a fun relaxing weekend! i have been so exhausted and uncomrtable lately thanks to my growing baby bump, so i took the weekend to relax with the family and watch all my blogger babes killin it at NYFW! i am a little jelly i couldn't go again this year! i'm really hoping for next year! anywho i have another blog post sharing a fall staple styled different ways! the...


i don't know about you but i love leopard and i especially love leopard booties for fall. i definitely consider leopard a neutral color - black, browns, tan, nudes - i know it's a print and can be kinda 'loud' for some, but it really is a neutral and i think pairs well with so many, so don't be scared to try it out! i definitely think its a fun neutral that adds a nice pop and edge to any outfit - - especially for me, since i love simple classic looks, the leopard really finishes off my outfits! 



|| LOOK ONE ||

as always you know i have to an easy casual look - - and yes i am in stripes again and wearing my favorite cardi! this outfit is perfect for transitioning into fall, and you can add mre layers as the weather gets cooler. i kept this outfit super easy and simple and kept the color scheme the same even though i mixed stripes and leopard. i feel like mixing patterns doesn't seem so 'out there' or 'loud' when you stay with neutral colors, like black and tan. i love this combo and the leopard booties totally tie the outfit together, making an easy and everyday outfit a little extra. beacuse don't we like to be extra every once and while. 

|| outfit details ||

cardigan || striped tee, other good options here, here and here || jeans 

|| SHOP look ONE ||


|| LOOK TWO ||

this is probably one of my favorite type of outfits that i don't wear often enough, annnd its perfect for the beginning of fall, especially here in san diego -- it takes forever for it to get real sweater weather so i love pairing a chunky knit with cutoffs. i also rarely ever wear hats but i secretly love them so i thought adding it to this outfit would add a nice side of flair along with the leopard booties -- super cute outfit with some fall vibes. 

|| outfit details ||

sweater (old), similar options here, here, here and here || denim cutoffs, similar here and here || hat, other options here and here 

|| SHOP look TWO ||



ok i always want to be a 'cool mom' -- this outfit gives me all the cool vibes, right? haha i felt pretty cool. you know i love my leather and suede moto jackets, so i thought that would be perfect over a band tee and black denim mini. band tees are all the rage right now and i'm not a huge band fanatic or anything but i think band tees, they totally give off some cool vibes. the black denim mini is also super cute and can see myself totally wearing this in the cooler months with some black tights and booties or knee high boots. totally loving this look! 

|| outfit details ||

suede moto jacket (last year), similar here, here, here  and here || band tee || denim mini 

|| SHOP look THREE ||


which outfit is your favorite? and are you excited for fall and leopard? because i am wanting everything leopard for fall!! hehe

hope you guys have an amazing monday! cheers to a new week!

totally WANTABLE


omg yay its Friday! and I am actually off this entire weekend and i am so excited for all day pool days with my little fam! its been pretty hot here, we've got a little heat wave going on -- definitely not as hot as some of you, but wayyyy hotter than we're used to haha! let me just say having aheat wave, being pregnant and chasing around a toddler has got me pretty exhausted. as much as i love summer, especially with a little one, i am so ready for cooler temps! what about you?? 


{ outfit one: white button down from WANTABLE }

anywho, i'm baaaack on here with a quick blog post because i want to share my latest goodies from my WANTABLE box this month! if you haven't seen on MY INSTAGRAM, WANTABLE is a styling services for all you busy people on-the-go annnnd its also for people who want to maybe even try a compeltely different style but don't know where to start, the style editors got your back! sometimes its nice to have someone else dig through inventory and shop for you, takes some of the guesswork out of figuring out what you want! i've seen and tried other styling services but was never really impressed... WANTABLE boxes are aways full of amazing brands, quality pieces, and they actually pay attention to my style because i get items i actually want to keep! 

{ outfit two: entire outfit (minus sandals) from WANTABLE

this month, i defintely wanted to keep it all, but a few pieces really stood out to me as staples for my closet -- especailly this white button down top -- first of all, i like anything white, besides black, white is my favorite color to wear, and i love wearing it all year round! secondly, this top is easy, breezy and gauzy, perfect for the warmer temps now, but also great for transitioning into fall because of its texture. i love that you can layer this top or wear it on its own, wear with jeans or denim cutoffs or even over a fitted midi dress -- i am OBSESSED with it! so i thought it would be fun to style it in three simple ways -- no fuss, easy breezy, casual looks for mommying around!

hope everyone has a beautiful friday and an amazing weekend!!

black + camel {part one}

happy FRIDAY friends !!!

woohoo! we made it through yet another week.. i seriously cannot believe how fast october has flown by! we are in the last week and it is still freakin hot in san diego -- luckily it has cooled down some -- talking high 80s low 90s, better than 100 degrees it was earlier in the week.

literally, baby C and i were melting. it was no fun going out in that heat but we were also going a little stir crazy staying inside all day. needless to say, baby C and i are both missing our afternoon strolls around the neighborhood and playing at the park. can't wait for cooler fall days -- praying that the weather changes very soon and stays! 

in other news, you are all probably sick of me complaining {so sorry, can't help it} but any other mamas out there feeling like me or having a little bit of a rough time with their littles, please say hey! wow! this month has been S T R U G G L E city for me and baby c. she has not been sleeping well, so granted neither have i. luckily i have an AHHHHMAZING hubby and baby daddy he usually gets up with her after i feed her early in the morning if she won't go back to sleep, and lets me snooze for a few more hours. but man! she still wakes up super early and sometimes wakes up one to two times a night. after my cry for help on instagram earlier in the week -- i'm now convinced it definitely started as a sleep regression we were not able to get out of and BAM now she's teething. i defnitely think her top two teeth are coming in soon and that has been bothering her lately. she can be super needy and clingy.. and lets just say i am not coping well at all. so any mamas out there that can relate, would love to hear how you cope with so many sleepless nights, interrupted sleep, fussy, teething baby? i'm losing my mind haha

anywho, enough of that! right? i need more positivity in my mind -- i've also started BBG again so i'll try to keep you updated on that -- just finished my first week and whoa its a killer but so good! i'm hoping this kinda helps me with everything else thats going on and i also wouldn't hate having me pre-pregnancy body back! haha! its so hard sometimes to find balance with work, family, relationships, babies, yourself, working out, etc etc so i'm trying to slowly get back on track and figure out a little more me time because i think that will help my situation a little bit so we will see how that goes! anyone do BBG?? let me know! 

{ what i'm wearing }

sweater blazer || faux leather leggings || black tee || suede flats || leopard clutch

okie dokie now the real good stuff haha MY FAVORITE COLOR COMBO for fall -- B L A C K  +  C A M E L !!! i don't know what it is about this color combo its so damn good -- neutral, simple and super chic. there are so many ways to achieve this color combo and i love wearing all black and throwing on one or two pieces that are in the camel color family. this time i opted for this new camel sweater blazer i got recently with camel suede pointed toe flats. if you know me, you know how obsessed i am with mules, so these flats kinda remind me of mules and they add a nice classic vibe to my outfit. back to this camel sweater blazer -- it is such a perfect piece to add to your fall wardrobe! because it is sweater material, its soft and easy to throw over anything and its not too dressy to wear everyday but not super casual either if you feel like dressing it up. its the perfect length, not too long, covers the bum -- literally PERFECT! so as much as like classic looks, i had to spice up the all black ensemble by wearing faux leather leggings because why not?! i love mixing textures in the fall so i really love the sweater blazer against the leather leggings. and leather leggings are a must for fall -- this pair is super comfortable and easy to wear with ANYTHING! it would look so good with a chunky knit and OTK boots, or wanna a more sassy sexy vibe, opt for a pretty blouse and some leopard high heel pumps -- you know how much i love leopard! and of course i tied in this perfect color combo with this perfect leopard foldover clutch! i mean this clutch will be my sidekick all fall long -- haha when i don't have the baby with me that is! but it fits everything i need and has a pretty gold chain strap if you wanna wear it crossbody style! 

{ GET my LOOK }


hope everyone has a fabulous friday and an amazinf weekend! we have no plans this weekend so we'll see what we end up doing.. what are your plans for the weekend?

keepin' it casual

happy H U M P day babes !!!

i feel like today should be friday for some reason.. i have no idea why i don't usally feel like this but for some reason the week seems to be draaaaggggin and i'm not exactly sure why. maybe its just my mom brain and for some odd reason i can't keep my days in order and i just have friday on the brain. haha. 

okie dokie so i'm gonna keep this short and sweet because i'm exhausted #momlife! this is has been my go-to outfit lately -- just switching out my sweaters and cardigans haha -- waiting for the temps to drop much more so i can stay in my sweaters all day.. and you need a chenille sweater in your life! this exact one is out of stock but i found a very very  similar one in four different colors -- and i want them all!! 

{ what i'm wearing }

cardigan || tank, another great option here || jeans, also here and similar (cheaper) option here || mules

baby C always comes on my shoots with me these days! she’s always laughing and getting excited when she sees me walking around haha! she's always such a good girl!

we are still going through a bit of a sleep regression and I feel guilty for saying this but it’s driving me crazy! i feel like a completely different person - - around her i’m good and she always makes me smile but when i’m by myself or with my hubby sometimes i just lose it. they say it gets easier but i am having a hard time seeing the light, being more positive.. i know it’s kinda terrible.. but i don’t do well with lack of sleep - - my mind and my body just feel off.. any mamas that can relate? would love some tips ❤️

have a fabulous day!

OMG happy OCTOBER !!! I know I am a few days late but I've been moving pretty slowly lately with a baby and all.. plus she's moving all over the place and going through a sleep regression so its been a little challenging trying to get anything done.. so here I am finally.. I know I've been MIA again.. trying to get back into a regular schedule so bear with me! 

anywho, since it is now october and fall is officially here -- although the weather in san diego would suggest it is most definitely NOT fall yet -- but i have to share my most favorite fall must-haves with you! there are no huge surprises here, you've probabaly seen this stuff everywhere already but i have to share what i love to wear during the fall and pretty much the winter too! i have to say, fall is my favorite season -- at first i wasn't so sure what my favorite season was but for sure after the last couple weeks craving some crisp cool air and sweater weather, i have to say i absolutely love fall! i love the cooler weather (when san diego weather decides to cooperate haha ), i love pumpkin anything for the most part -- little pumpkins are so cute to decorate the house with, the pumpkin patch is fun to visit and of course pumpkin pie..i am also eating a pumpkin cereal bar as i write this haha; i love candles (and yes, while i burn candles all the time it just seems like a fall thing and they have such amazing scents in the fall), i love oversized cozy sweaters, booties and OTK boots, giant blanket scarves -- so many wonderful things for fall! haha. so lets just go ahead and get started with my must-haves!

{ C O Z Y  S W E A T E R S }

ok so let's start with the most common wardrobe staple for fall - sweaters! i love sweaters i just love feeling comfy and cozy and cute and sweaters just do that for me. there are so many fabulous sweaters -- different textures and styles -- and i of course want all the super soft ones! and you can always dress up or dress down a sweater -- i love to wear them super simple and easy with leggings or jeans with either a pair of flat mules or cute sneakers, but sweaters are also great with midi skirts and booties or block heel mules! and besides pull over sweaters, i also love cardigans! they are perfect transitional piece from summer to fall because its always starts off cool in the morning, gets warm in the middle of the day and by evening its chilly again, so cardigans are perfect because you can layer them and take them off no problem! i also love that you can drape oversized cardigans over your shoulders or ahve them fall off your shoulders for a cute yet sassy look! see, sweaters are perfect! so i will share all the sweaters and cardigans i just got or am absolutely loving right now!


{ M U L E S }

another fall favorite of mine are mules or are they called slides or loafers -- not sure exactly which term haha but you'll see below what i'm talking about.. i love mules because they are super comfortable and easy to wear with just about anything! i love them with skirts or jeans or leggins or even dresses. they are literally perfect when i don't want to wear high heels or casual sneakers but i still want to be comfortable and slightly dressed up. and there are so many to choose from with different textures and prints! they just give any outifit a cool chic vibe, ya feel me? check out some really amazing ones below!




{ B L A N K E T  S C A R V E S }

ok so as i continue writing this, i am starting to think these are all pretty obvious choices for fall -- but hey i can't help it if this are great classic pieces that keep coming back season after season. also the last few months i have been trying to go back to my roots haha and by that i mean keep things simple and basic but not so basic if you know what i mean -- i'm not gonna lie i love trendy pieces but i'm starting to get sick of chasing trends so im trying to just keep it simple and neutral (for the most part) and just share the things i absolutely love, even if it means i might be a little repetetive. but hey you can mix simple easy pieces with a lot of different options making every outfit slightly different -- so yes blanket scarves were a must-have for me last year but i still love them -- there are always new colors and patterns out there and i love wearing a white tee and skinny jeans with flats, so throw on a huge plaid blanket scarf or one with stripes and bam your basic look is not so basic, ya feel me? haha check out some of my picks this season below! 


{ L E A T H E R  J A C K E T S }

do i even need to explain?! i mean, right?!?! leather jackets will NEVER go out of style -- as long as you pick classic styles and fit -- like the moto jacket. I mean this style has been around for forever and i am not mad about it one bit -- i probably have like six or seven leather moto-style jackets, why because they are so damn good! haha. there are different kinds of leather and they can have slightly different fit, either way they are super cool and perfect for your fall wardrobe. but of course there are other fabulous leather jacket styles you can rock all fall and winter long! i love to wear it leather jackets with literally ANYTHING -- sweats, joggers, leggings, skirts, dresses, shorts, pajamas... haha ANYTHING! you just can't go wrong.. outfit missing soemthing? throw a leather jacket over your shoulders, voila! your outifit is instantly perfect! oh, and if you;re against leather, no worries boo, there are AMAZING faux leather jackets too! check out some amazing options below! 


{ B O O T S / B O O T I E S }

this one is kinda like the leather jacket -- EVERY year we all wear boots, whether that's a bootie, over the knee, boots, tall boots or thigh high boots -- we will never stop wearing boots for fall and winter. they're cute, some can be edgy, and they keep our little toes warm when its cold out. i always say "i'm not buying boots this year" because i have a lot of boots, but every year there are always a few that are slightly different than what i have and i just can't say no. haha! i would love to hear from someone that actually hates wearing boots in the fall?? please tell me why! in the meantime, check out some amazing boots and booties to take you from now until winter! 



what are some of your fall must-haves?? anything you absolutely have to have every fall? would love to hear in the comments below!
