Photography by Christine Choi

It happens almost everyday. Sitting in front of my closet, not having a clue what to wear. When I was younger I liked to believe that the more clothes I had the easier the process would get, but believe it or not…it doesn’t. In fact it gets a bit more complicated the more you accumulate. I’ve gotten into the habit of  creating  a style cheat sheet or what I call my “Chic Sheet “. Will be sharing this “Chic Sheet” with you later on this week, in hopes that getting dressed every morning will be a little more painless for you!

 Although I would like to take credit for all the looks I’ve styled, I have to admit that they are usually derived from some sort of inspiration. I’m the master when it comes to  recreating outfits that I discover thru different magazines & blogs.  I usually cut them out or simply pin them onto my Pinterest board for future outfit inspiration when needed. So as of lately there has been an endless amount of chunky knits + plaid accent inspiration on my pinterest board / “Chic Sheet”.  I’ve been wearing this thick  knit sweater (now on sale) in multiple different ways, but this was my favorite combination out of them all- with a plaid scarf + pinstriped boyfriend jeans.

Shot this the other day with Christine in downtown LA at a new delicious eatery we discovered! Will be sharing the rest of the post with you tomorrow for another Chic Eats!  Happy Monday !

You look great in these pants!

I am loving your plaid scarf! :) It’s a great, casual look


Erica M ( January 14, 2014 at 5:29 PM )

Such a basic outfit, but the accessories really amp up the chic factor! Love the scarf especially ❤


Helena ( January 14, 2014 at 12:41 AM )

I love that scarf. This is such a cute and comfy outfit.

I can understand how it’ll be more difficult to coordinate outfits if you have more items since
you tend to forget some of the things you already own. :)
It’s a challenge, but a good one to overcome.

Great outfit as always, and Christine Choi is such an amazng photographer!

Hmmm interesting way to look at it, Chriselle! I guess it would be harder to pair things up together when you have more to look at in the closet. I’m looking forward to your chic sheet!

Happy Monday! I love the second shot! Teeheehee.

Christine Choi ( January 13, 2014 at 2:35 PM )

    Haha! I love them all Christine! Thanks for these great photos!

    Chriselle ( January 13, 2014 at 2:37 PM )

You’re so inspiring! xx


Kristina Wilde ( January 13, 2014 at 1:33 PM )

    Thank you Kristina! Your comments and support inspire me to do what I do!

    Chriselle ( January 13, 2014 at 2:38 PM )

Love it Chriselle! I can completely relate to how you feel, having a full closet but when it comes to going out, sometimes I have no clue what I should wear. Love the outfit you’re wearing in this post. Casual chic!

    Alina, I’m glad someone else is on the same page as me! It helps to have a “Chic sheet” Can’t wait to share it with you! Thanks for commenting!

    Chriselle ( January 13, 2014 at 2:41 PM )

This looks is everything! Beautiful. I love the subtle mixture of prints and textures.

MBelle ( January 13, 2014 at 12:44 PM )

the second photo is stunning. beautiful look. so much talent! x

Lenna Fox ( January 13, 2014 at 11:29 AM )

Nice look and scarf

Inna ( January 13, 2014 at 11:05 AM )

I have to agree with you that the more clothes you have the more complicated it gets. My closet is full of clothes that I am not even able to stuff any new stuff. Once a year I try to clean it out by donating. Cant wait to see what the new chic eats!


H.A.F. Addict by Laurina W ( January 13, 2014 at 11:00 AM )

    What a great idea Laurina! I try to do the same as well but sometimes its hard to let them go!! Thanks for the tip and for commenting!

    Chriselle ( January 13, 2014 at 3:00 PM )

I just love it! You make my day because actually I didn’t know what to wear, but now I have an idea. You should talk about how can we edit our clothes and have many different outfit without having a bunch of clothes like key pieces etc…

Liz ( January 13, 2014 at 10:36 AM )

    Liz! I’m so glad you like it! And love your idea <3

    Chriselle ( January 13, 2014 at 3:00 PM )

Love comfy chic!

Love love love this outfit! The sunglasses look awesome with your short hair and the photos are just wonderful! I can’t wait to see your post on your “chic sheet”! I actually posted a lipstick guide on my blog this morning, and I see it as a cheat sheet for those days where I can’t figure which color I want to wear!

I’m chuckling to myself as this is completely relatable! I’ve been known to say I’ve got nothing to wear.
And received glaring stare backs, lol! This is a great everyday wear!
