As blogger, I’ve become an advocate for local businesses and have had wonderful the opportunity to work with some amazing clothing stores in the San Diego area. A long time favorite is a store called Shimmer because they have a large selection of affordable, on-trend clothing. They have three locations (Chula Vista Center, Plaza Bonita and North County Fair), but I frequent the Plaza Bonita one the most. I’m happy to say I’ve recently become a Shimmer Ambassador, which means I’ll be showcasing clothes from their store, starting with this outfit I posted on Instagram a couple of weeks ago. Since it’s finally sweater weather, I picked this cozy long cardigan along with these amazing jeans by Eunina. I know the distressed denim look is really hot right now, but I was drawn to this solid darker pair. I felt really pulled together in this outfit, and it’s definitely something I would wear to work.
Also, this is the first time I’ve worn a “bib” or dickey collar, which simply means a fake collar (think Howard Wolowitz from the Big Bang Theory). I actually really like them because I can do a layered look without the bulk. The one I’m wearing is from ASOS, but since they’re out of the black one I’m wearing in these pictures, you can find similar ones for a great price at a site called I Got Collared (I’m going to buy a few more myself).
