Week of Outfits: Priscilla Vega

Priscilla Vega is a publicist for female entrepreneurs, and she also likes wearing women-owned brands, like Rachel Pally, Ixchel Triangle and Gjenmi. “I’m often wearing jeans and a tee, plus something extra, like a hat or dangly earrings. I call it my ‘flair!'” She lives with her husband and two kids in Monrovia, California. Here are five looks she wore in a week…

Week of Outfits: Priscilla Vega

Top: Everlane. Shorts: Vintage. Necklaces: Maya Brenner x Midland and Able. Bag: Ixchel Triangle. Shoes: Everlane.

“This is my go-to outfit for work lunches and meetings. The shorts are a vintage find from Encourage Vintage. In high school, I just wore the same clothes that my friends wore from Hollister at the mall. But then in college, my roommate walked into our dorm on the first day barefoot, wearing skorts and a T-shirt with no bra. I had come from a military town and wore sports bras every day. She was fascinating to me. I was like, oooooh, you can have FUN with what you’re wearing! She never brushed her hair, she would just come out of the shower and twirl it. She introduced me to thrift store style.”

Week of Outfits: Priscilla Vega

Top: Similar. Jeans: Madewell. Necklaces: Maya Brenner x Midland and Able.

“These pants are technically cropped, but because I’m five feet, cropped pants — even petites — fit me regularly. In the summer, we’ll go to local beaches and park our Airstream at a campsite or RV park. My husband grew up as a Boy Scout, but I had never camped. He really, really wanted to raise the kids camping, so our compromise was the Airstream. My friends say I can’t call it camping, but it’s legit camping! We cook outside, and the kids are outside… I take pride. I’m scared of bears and in a tent, you might as well be sleeping under a sheet.”

Week of Outfits: Priscilla Vega

Dress: Rachel Pally. Shoes: Beeks.

“I mostly wear neutrals, but when I saw this red dress on Instagram, I decided to go for it. It’s perfect for date nights. My husband loves it, Ina loves it, even Ozzy. Ozzy is two and takes a literal approach — if I wear a red dress, he says I look like a strawberry. Ina is six and if she likes something, she will say, ‘Oh, Mom, that’s so FASHION.’ Now I’ve started saying it, too.”

Week of Outfits: Priscilla Vega

Necklaces: Maya Brenner x Midland (similar) and Able. Bracelets: Starling x Baby Boy Bakery collaboration. Rings: Gjenmi, Gjenmi and Starling.

“I used to work for government and non-profit organizations, and the work focused on causes that mattered to me. I left that career path once I became a mother for the flexibility to manage my own schedule. This resist necklace is a daily reminder that no matter the work I’m doing, my voice still matters. I’m no longer writing stories about space exploration or the water crisis in California, but as a publicist, I empower women to take risks and fight for what they believe in. As a mother to a daughter and son, I feel that looking in the mirror every morning with this simple word on my neck is the best way to start the day.”

Week of Outfits: Priscilla Vega

Shirt: vintage from @micknmarianne, similar. Jeans: J.Crew. Bracelets: Starling x Baby Boy Bakery collaboration.

“This summer, we took a family trip to Montana and we loved it. We saw grizzly bears, bald eagles, bison, elk and moose! Here, I’m wearing denim on denim because I like the cowgirl look. I’ve also never painted my nails a color or worn color on my lips. I love a red lip on other people, but it just doesn’t feel like me — I talk a lot with my hands and if they were a color I’d be endlessly distracted. Instead, I’ll do a lip gloss — Fat and the Moon makes a great cheek and lip tint, and Milk makes wonderful vegan lip stains.”

Week of Outfits: Priscilla Vega

Top: Everlane. Pants: Everlane. Hat: Brookes Boswell. Bracelets: Starling x Baby Boy Bakery collaboration. Rings: Gjenmi, Gjenmi and Starling. Clogs: Bryr.

“I love Everlane because they offer some petite sizing. So do Madewell, Anthropologie and J.Crew. I also like shopping vintage on Instagram — noisaf, micknmarianne, encourage — because it seems like back in the day, they made more petites. I also just got a new bra from a brand called Cuup — it feels like a bralette but has underwire support. it’s amazing. it’s sheer and super light, it doesn’t dig in, even the underwire isn’t thick. it feels like the find of the year.”

Thank you so much, Priscilla!

P.S. More women share their weeks of outfits, including a Texas mother of two, a New York model, and a Seattle security consultant.

  1. Born and raised in Monrovia and never would have thought that it would be mentioned in Cup of Jo!

  2. Hannah Avery says...

    I love that red dress!!!

  3. Rae says...

    Such a knockout. Such great style!

  4. Jessie says...

    Hi Priscilla on your denim on denim outfit where did you get the shoes you are wearing. They look so comfortable and cute.

    • Hi! My shoes are handmade in Mexico from Ricardo Medina. You can order directly from them online :)

    • Jessie says...

      Thank you Priscilla!

  5. Ohhh man. This is some serious style goals. Comfortable, casual yet still refined and beautiful. The dream! Also that resist necklace is just the best. Love her story!

  6. Asia says...

    Oh my gosh, I feel like I’ve met my style icon. And it’s fun because I already wear or know about a lot of these brands! Pinning everything!

    • Ahhhhh!!! Style Icon is such an enormously wonderful compliment!
      Thank you thank you.

  7. Colleen says...

    I love her casual style. And I had to read the first part twice, because I also live in little Monrovia, and I wasn’t sure I read it right. Hit me up for a playdate, Priscilla! Ha!

    • Say what?! Let’s for sure meet up! I know exactly 1 person in town because I never get out and when I’m out I’m head down with the kids so I never meet anyone!

    • Kelly says...

      I grew up in Pasadena/Monrovia until I was nearly 10 years old! (Now nearing 30). My family moved to the east coast the summer in between 3rd and 4th grade. Granted, I’m sure the 90s don’t compare to now at all, but I remember it as such a wonderful place to grow up and live. :)

  8. Tari says...

    She is beautiful, and I love that she is into thrifting! Just ordered her Everlane sandals.

    • Thank you so much! You are going to LOVE the sandals!!

  9. Rachel says...

    I just tried Cuup too and am loving them! So light and soft but still supportive, even for DDDs! They also make ethical working conditions and sustainability a priority!

    • Amy says...

      Did you have any sizing issues? I know my bra size for ONE brand, and I’m so afraid to guess at others! It seems like nothing is consistent across brands 😂

    • Such a great find, right?! I just also ordered some underwear! I’m sure I’ll love them too :)

    • Rachel says...

      Re: Amy, I just used the measuring guide on their website and it worked out! But they also have free exchanges and returns. I definitely don’t find things to be consistent across brands but I have found that usually if you use one’s specific measurement chart it’s much more likely to end up in your favor.

  10. sarah morabito says...

    Gahhhh! I just adore her even MORE after this post. Such a beautiful person inside and out – I’ve thoroughly enjoyed following her on instagram for the last few years.

  11. Joanie M says...

    Ixchel Triangle is owned by a former student of mine! It’s so great to see them here ☺️ I carry one of their bags to work every day – the quality is awesome and their artists and makers are treated great. Definitely a worthwhile purchase!

    • Joanna Goddard says...

      so good to hear!

    • Hi Sarah! I’ve enjoyed following you over the years too :) maybe one day we’ll meet IRL!!

      xx

    • Amen!! Love my Ixchel bag and supporting the incredible women behind the brand!

  12. Nina says...

    I love her style. AND I agree she IS camping. a silly question but does it bug anyone else to wear more than one necklace? I love the look but I hate the tangle!

    • Elena says...

      @nina, 1. lay both necklaces on a flat surface. Make sure they are facing the same direction (I.e. pendant facing down or up).
      2. Take the clasp from one necklace and attach it to the jump ring of the other necklace.
      3. Now take your REALLY long necklace, make sure you have the pendants facing the correct way, wrap it twice around your neck and attach both ends together. Adjust length and done. :)

      They won’t tangle. You can do up to three like this. It does not work for all necklaces: the clasps need to be on the same side or you need to be able to slide the pendant off to get the clasp on the side you need it to be. Once you do it, you’ll get it, and it’s a game changer.

    • Elena’s comment just blew my mind! That’s genius! Mine tangle all the time but I just shake them to untangle and boom 💥

  13. megs283 says...

    ok, Priscilla is just SUPER cool. I love her style. She has one of those faces that just seems so friendly! And…I’ve never camped, but always thought RVing would be fun. Thank you for featuring her!!

    Jo, could you do an article on how to become an RVer? Especially with little kids? Maybe you could feature people with different careers/flexibility and from different regions of the US?

    • Oh yes!! An RV feature would be so fun! The industry is booming right now and there are so many amazing families doing it full-time, part-time and on-the-weekend time :)

  14. I love the simplicity here! I love fashion posts where I can draw from my own wardrobe to emulate what she’s wearing rather than having to buy it all. Plus, THRIFT STYLE IS THE BEST!

  15. Kristian Olson says...

    I love her style so much! And YAY for going to Montana! It is lovely (been though it’s been unseasonably rainy) and yes, a healthy wariness of bears is probably a good thing.

    • Sasha L says...

      It’s the rainiest summer ever here in Montana. Oh well, at least it’s not snow, or smoke. Last two summers were terrible for wild fires.

  16. Thank you for featuring a fellow short-short. I’m 5’1″ and I find shopping so hard, unless I want to wear Ann Taylor Loft and Banana Republic all day long (which I don’t). I am totally checking out all these brands, and I had NO idea vintage clothes came in petite. My sizing is absolutely what keeps me from being adventurous when it comes to clothes because I just don’t have the time to seek out new brands that actually fit.

    • Deirdre Araujo says...

      My daughter is the same size – this will make all the difference!

  17. Kamina says...

    Ahhhhh Priscilla you’re speaking my style language! Neutrals, neutrals, neutrals and a red dress! PREACH!!

    Lol at “that’s so fashion”…I have a (half) brother who’s 18 years younger than me. When he was about 4 he was with me on a shopping trip and he pulled out a dress from the rack and went “oohhh, look at the STUNNING PIECE!” I nearly died laughing. His mother works in fashion.

    • Joanna Goddard says...

      hahahah that is so cute!!! after i went to the salon, toby once asked me if i had gotten “a delicious haircut.” i was like, yes, toby, i did. :)

  18. Julie says...

    This is lovely. Thank you! I have been looking for a dress like the red one. Are you wearing the Cuup bra with that? I’m struggling to find dresses I like that are comfortable bra friendly. Or maybe I just need to channel your college roommate and ditch the bra. I just don’t know if I am that brave post-breastfeeding!

    • I am wearing the cuup bra with this dress :) it’s the deep plunge style!

  19. Claire says...

    Loved this one for so many reasons! It was so inspiring to read about Priscilla’s decision to start a business in order to have the flexibility to manage her own schedule. Even though I don’t yet have kids myself, this is something I’ve been thinking a lot about recently. Priscilla’s business sounds amazing and high-powered, but I’ve also been thinking about whether it’s OK to take a small step back–even at this early stage in my career–to focus more on life and relationships. Would the CoJ team consider doing a post on balancing career and family? And/or on women who have chosen alternative career paths?

    • Emma says...

      Yes, please please please do a post on this!

    • Abigail says...

      Yes! After taking care of a terminally ill husband and losing him when I was 38, I worked full-time, as I had been during his illness, and then walked away from my job and sold my house a year after his death. I traveled and bunked with my parents, and I re-entered full-time, 9-5 work six months ago. Even after a six month break, I’m still uneasy with full-time traditional work, but I haven’t a clue how to approach a different way of life.

    • Claire says...

      Thank you, Fernanda! :)

      Abigail, that is so, so hard–I’m so sorry for your loss. Sending hugs your way. You sound like an incredibly brave person, and I’m sure you will find a path forward that brings you healing and fulfillment. Wishing you all the very best!

  20. Megan Ritchey says...

    Oh, she is just the cutest. Love her style.

  21. Lizzie says...

    All due respect to your advisor, but as I see it, not only was his comment inconsiderate, it was wrong. Often have I observed (with fascination) the commanding presence that a petite woman can project. Ihave reflected on how a person’s small size seemed to, well, heighten the effect. (I’m 5’10” myself. ) Just as someone tall can still come across as halting and uncertain, a tiny woman can convey tremendous personal power. Being unexpectedly small can even contribute to the whole thrilling effect. For example, think of, well- pretty much every rock star ever! (Prince, Gaga, Madonna, Jagger…)

    • Sonja says...

      Thank you so much, Lizzie! I love this way of looking at it, and I’m going to remember this when I’m discouraged :)

    • Nina says...

      I’m not sure what you mean? I don’t see any advisor mentioned in the article. that being said I find it almost like mansplaining from men toward a woman – for a woman who is 5 10 to say how short women should feel. I’m sure it was intended to be empowering but it discounts a short person’s experience with being demeaned, and talked down to, and treated like a child.

    • Joanna Goddard says...

      nina, she was referencing a comment below. hope that helps!

  22. Oh I love this! Especially ordering from female owned businesses.
    And I recently got the same advice re big earrings/flare with everyday outfits to beat the “I work at home and I feel like a frumpy mom when I go out Look”, from my dear friend Sol. (Who owns her own handmade jewelry company in Queens! “Sol Proaño” )

    • Hi Gaia! I can’t wait to check out Sol’s shop! Always on the hunt for some fresh flair :) And thank you so much for reading and commenting with such a thoughtful response. I always strive the perfect balance between “I work from home so I have to be comfortable BUT also I gotta look presentable at pickup” vibe :)

    • Marisa says...

      Just checked out her site– the jewelry is beautiful!!!

  23. Sonja says...

    Thank you so much for featuring a petite woman!! I’m sure you’ve featured petite women before, but this post especially was meaningful to me right now. Maybe because recently I had an older/male (respected and trusted) advisor basically say to me, “No one will ever view you as an Executive Director (which is what I am) because you’re petite.” (I’m 5’1” and look young for my age). And it has been so hard for those words to not feel stinging and limiting.
    So seeing this post of a beautiful, confident, petite woman has helped me choose to not let others’ words limit my potential.
    Thank you :)

    • Molly says...

      Oh my gosh, Sonja! I am so frustrated on your behalf. That was an incredibly rude thing to tell you, & I don’t believe it for a second! I’m also pretty short (5’2”) and I hate when people use my height (which I cannot control) over my abilities. Let’s hold our heads high & use our confidence to be just as in charge as anyone else!

    • Liz says...

      WHAT AN ASS. We just have to keep proving people like that wrong.
      I am also petite (5′, small frame, young face) and really connected with her! I’m cheering for you to keep on crushing it.

    • valine says...

      that advisor is deameaning and wrong. you shine like a diamond sonja don’t let those guys bring ya down at work!!!!!!

    • Christie says...

      Fellow petite woman in senior management here! (also 5’1)

      A comment like the one your advisor made should be dismissed immediately as completely idiotic. It’s amazing to me how some men don’t even hear how stupid comments like that sound. Your height or size has less than nothing to do with your ability to lead.
      Disappointing that it was made by someone you trust, but his comment has more to do with his own beliefs than what anyone else thinks.

      You keep doing you! X.

    • Hi Sonja, I’m so sorry you’ve experienced this in the workplace. I’ve found that my favorite older/male respected and trusted advisors actually were the ones that encouraged me to continue to strive for all the things I want in life. I’ve most definitely experienced the ones who have felt threatened and pushed me down and in those situations I moved on quickly. Honestly, feel free to reach out anytime if you need a cheerleader :)

    • Sarz says...

      Sonja, thank you for your words! 4’11” lady with a child-like build, here. I’m glad I wasn’t the only one personally emboldened by Priscilla’s images and words. It still feels as though cuteness is a hindrance to being taken seriously, but perhaps it’s up to us to change the narrative. Much respect, my tiny, powerful sisters.

    • Rachael says...

      @Sarz “my tiny, powerful sisters” – I love that so much!!! Growing up, I shed so many tears over my height (and that I hit puberty late) – now, I take great pride in being small and mighty. I wouldn’t take an extra few inches even if it was on offer – I’m me, and that’s plenty :)

    • Sonja says...

      Wow everyone, thank you SO much for your support!! Imagining all of you amazing petite women paving the way for me is an incredible confidence boost. Anytime I feel discouraged about my height, I’m going to come back and read these comments. :)
      Priscilla – thank you for your kind comment and again for the lovely post!

    • Nina says...

      I’m sorry that happened. I am short and overweight. Once I lost weight and a friend’s father said: Now you look like a real attorney.

      That really hurt my feelings. Like I can’t be fat and REAL?!!!

    • Claire says...

      Good grief. All due respect to your relationship w/ this respected and trusted advisor, but that is a whole lot of hooey. It makes me remember how, in a previous life, I had the great privilege of meeting several times with Michelle Lujan Grisham, when she was a US Representative. She is now the current governor of the state of New Mexico. She is very petite, extremely intelligent, principled, and quite a powerful presence. When she enters a room everybody in it snaps to attention. Size, I think, becomes irrelevant when you know who you are and what you’re about.

  24. Cynthia says...

    I like that they camp with an Airstream. They’re an American icon. We have a camper at a permanent site on the Chesapeake Bay in Virginia. We have tent camped, and we had a pop-up camper when our girls were young. They loved it, especially flambeing marshmallows. Of course, I ate all the burnt ones.

    • Oh Cynthia, your memories sound golden! Thank you for sharing! I also eat all the burnt marshmallows ;)

  25. AH says...

    This is so timely! I was debating buying the Everlane sandals she’s wearing today and I kept humming and hawing…and then I logged on to COJ and saw her wearing them. Immediately ordered!

    • YES! It was meant to be! Everlane is the best and these shoes feel like I’m wearing a super comfy summer sandal! You will not be disappointed ;)

  26. Liz says...

    Love her style! Especially the monotone! I also will only airstream “camp”. Thanks for sharing!

    • Hahaha! Let’s Airstream “camp” caravan!!!!

  27. Bec says...

    Gosh she is cute! Love her style and her message. I’m feeling inspired to “shop” my closet and also ya know…”resist”! Keep fighting for good causes :)

    • Thank you thank you thank you!!!! Super happy this resonated with you and thank you so much for the sweet words!!

  28. Megan Lec says...

    Love this look and her thoughts on showing her kids what she stands for in little ways each day. Need that RESIST necklace in my life, can someone get that link back up and working or is it sold out?

    • Maureen says...

      Hi Megan,

      The necklace sold out very quickly, but we found a similar one here! http://tidd.ly/b5e8b724

    • Everybody needs a RESIST necklace in their lives ;) Your so sweet to acknowledge the way I try to show my kids what I stand for. I try to give them tiny little nuggets of wisdom each day hoping it will all turn into some magical explosion of happiness.

  29. Jenna says...

    Airstream camping is camping!! Love your easy style and welcoming smile!

    • YES girl!! You get me!!! Airstream campers unite!!!

  30. Beautiful post! The whole thing feels warm and cheerful.

    • I’m so so glad this resonated with you. Warm and cheerful is the ultimate compliment.

  31. Robin says...

    Thank you so much for sharing, Priscilla! Beautiful.
    The link to the resist necklace is not working for me, unfortunately.

  32. Kristin says...

    Love the all white look with nude clogs! Chic.

    • Liz says...

      Me too!!

    • Monica says...

      Thank you, thank you for featuring a petite woman. I am 5ft tall and struggle to find clothes that fit. Priscilla, you are beautiful and inspiring.

    • Thank you!! White on white is a bit risky with a crazy toddler that rather enjoys slinging food but every once in a while I get a toddler break and bust out all the white! My clogs are blush but depending on the lighting, they look nude, which technically makes them magic clogs :)

  33. Jessica says...

    This is so exciting! I used to work with Priscilla and always loved her style and energy when she would come to our office for meetings. And I cannot believe how grown-up the little ones have gotten!

    • HEY JESSICA!!!! I miss dropping into the office and seeing your smiling face. Aren’t the kids giant?! Thank you for commenting and please don’t be a stranger! Let’s meet up soon :)

  34. Em says...

    It is so refreshing to hear about another mom (and a really cool one!) who left a “regular” job–even one she loved–to start something new because she wanted the flexibility and family time. I needed to read this today. Thank you!

    • Hey Em! I hear you. It’s often not talked about taking risks for bigger risks even if it seems like a safe bet. I struggled a lot with this transition and even fell back into the corporate world before coming back to trying to figure out the flex schedule. It took many years of finding what worked for me and I honestly still struggle with it but I keep going with the optimism that I’m going with my gut. So happy my story helped you today.

    • Em says...

      Oh my goodness, you wrote me? Touched! I am leaving my “regular” job of the past decade at the end of next week to start freelancing and having more time with my daughter. It seems so “not feminist” to say that, but your piece really helped me realize I can own that, and it IS feminist to do this! Thank you. :)

  35. My heart is soaring! What an incredible opportunity to share some of my fave brands for petites and a tremendous honor to be on Cup of Jo! Thanks again, Joanna! May flair forever live on!!

    xx

    • Priscila says...

      Oh my gosh my name is also Priscila Vega!!! And I love style too!!! This is just too much! 😳😳😳😳 (I spell with one L though)

    • Priscila with one “L”! Let’s be friends!!!!

    • Priscila Vega says...

      LET’S! I ❤️’d your post on FB yesterday 😊

  36. Katie says...

    Can we be friends please?!

    • Oh hell yeah we can be!!! I will never turn down a request to be a friend with a fellow Cup of Jo reader. Hit me up girlfriend!

  37. Alyssa says...

    Would love a Beauty Uniform from her! She’s adorable. And yay for petite women. I’m 5’2″ but was blessed with a huge chest. So that makes for challenging times buying clothes, especially dresses and formal attire.

    • Rachael says...

      Saaame – trying to find pieces for a short torso, that don’t require industrial-strength safety pins to stay closed, can be…trying!

    • Laura D. says...

      Same here! I would love suggestions for where to find dresses for short, busty ladies.

    • MS says...

      Same, same! Fellow short lady (5’2) with a large chest. I’d love suggestions on where to find professional clothing that fits a large bust! Perhaps, a future article, Cup of Jo team? :)

  38. Sasha L says...

    I love every single outfit!! So fun. That red dress is just so beautiful and the last outfit is just summery perfection.

    Priscilla, I’m so glad you loved Montana!! I hope you got some good weather. It’s been unseasonable cool and rainy here this summer so far. Just starting to really feel like summer. You must have visited Glacier or Yellowstone? We saw a grizzly bear on a camping trip over 4th of July- so incredibly exciting.

    • Hi hi hi! I love that you live in Montana. I want to be friends with everyone that lives there. We had the most incredible time and while the mornings were misty and we did catch a couple days of rain, mostly everything cleared up by afternoon and we got to enjoy it fully!!

  39. Calla says...

    Thanks for sharing, I love her style! It’s always nice to get new brand recommendations as sometimes I get really stuck in a rut.

    Just a quick warning about cuup- I ordered some bras from them to try and while I love the bras themselves they have been really difficult in working with to get my money back on bras I returned. I ended up having to contest the charge through my credit card company. Just something to consider if you decide to try them

    • Hi Calla,
      We truly apologize for the confusion and inconveniences! Our support team is sending you an email right now with an update on your return status. We’re definitely here to help and assure you that it’s all being taken care of!

      Best,
      CUUP Team

    • Hi! Thank you so much for the sweet words about my style! I also get stuck in a rut and I’m a bit of a creature of habit when it comes to all the things I LOVE. So happy I could send some new recommendations your way. I’m also really happy to hear that you love your cuup bras .They feel like such a dream. I only ordered one and kept the one I ordered so I didn’t get a chance to experience the customer service side of things but I hope they will help resolve your issue soon and you’ll ultimately be super happy :) Customer service means everything to me too!

  40. Lauren E. says...

    Her haaaaaaair! All the heart eyes. I love this one.

    • Ahhhhh! Thank you!!! My hair was actually pitch black (my natural color) as of last December but then in January I decided to start inching my way to lighter locks. Its taken 7 months of hard work to get here but it feels soooo good! I’m so glad you love it!!

  41. Lindsay says...

    Basically, this is exactly how I want to be. I need that dress….

    • The dress sets the standard! I feel so so good in this dress! You need this dress ;)

  42. liz says...

    Just an fyi – think to noihsaf you included is not their vintage account! That is: @noihsaf.vintage

    • Joanna Goddard says...

      fixing now, thank you!

    • oh hey Noihsaf Vintage friend! Isn’t it the best! I have to hold back from so many purchases but I love love this find!

  43. mm says...

    Love every look!

    • THANK YOU!!! My favorite thing about this looks is also that they’re interchangeable. I often wear the linen cream top with the white pants and the white t-shirt with the denim. It’s all so fun to mix up monotone pieces.

  44. Holly says...

    Everlane offers petite sizing?

    • Joanna Goddard says...

      Thanks for your note! They offer XXS and 00 in most styles and in some pant styles like this one they offer a “short” option: http://bit.ly/2lzaCKD

  45. amy says...

    her pink clogs are the perfect color pink. thank you for this post!

    • I’ve been swooning over these clogs for over a year. I finally took the plunge and bought them! The founder of this company wears this exact pair all the time so naturally she liked to tease me ;)

  46. Julie says...

    She’s so gorgeous. I love those everland shoes and I might have to find the “resist” necklace.

    • Thank you so much Julie! The Everlane shoes feel like the shoe of the season! I wear them often even with jeans and a plain tee. And the resist necklace is one of my most cherished pieces of jewelry. It feels timeless and I hope to pass it on :)

  47. Lisa says...

    The denim outfit is goals.

    • You and Joanna both love this outfit! I also love it too but now I’m thinking I should probably keep it on the weekly rotation. Denim Tuesday?

  48. Jenna says...

    Monrovia is a small town outside Pasadena? I have been there. It’s right in metropolitain LA. The metro even goes there.

      i love monrovia! i wouldn’t say it’s typical LA, but an extension of it. it does have a smaller town feel even if it’s connection via metro.

    • Yes, it is a small town outside of Pasadena! I work in Pasadena and live in Azusa (another small town) and drive through Monrovia every day. :) It’s still LA County of course, and yes, the Gold Line goes through a lot of these small towns that all run together. I guess “small town” means different things to people from different regions of the country. For us Angelenos, Monrovia counts as a small town. :)

      For those of us that grew up there, Monrovia is absolutely a small town outside Pasadena. It has a giant “M” painted on the Foothills that is lit up when the football team plays a home game (so you know to attend), and when we win, the “V” part is lit up. Can you get more small town than that? It is truly the Gem of the Foothills in all its hot and smoggy glory. Go Wildcats!!

      PS – Priscilla and her kids are darling!!

  49. Yay, Priscilla! I met her at a Create Dinners event last year. I love her style, and also repping the small-town-outside-of-Pasadena life, haha! And an Airstream is TOTALLY camping!

    • oh haaaaay!!! Create Dinners was seriously one of the most magical events I’ve ever been to! I’ve been itching to get to another! Hopefully I’ll get to see you soon! And yes, thank you for supporting my Airstream-is-camping campaign ;)

    Priscilla and I are the exact same height, so it was really nice to get a sense of her style – I can definitely relate with the cropped pants! There aren’t a lot of stores with petite options near me (in fact, they keep getting even more reduced!), so I’m looking forward to checking out Priscilla’s online recommendations. Love her “flair”!

    • Hi 5’0 sister!!
      I know you know what I mean when I say I can’t go to a store and get a pair of jeans and wear them out that night! I mean, we can ROCK the rolled up skinny jean look but a boot cut flare….forget it! So glad that fad is gone anyway ;) Feel free to reach out anytime for my fave shorty spots!

    Oh wow, Priscilla is so lovely! She sounds so aware of and true to herself – it’s so motivating. And those KIDS – nonstop cute! I love how I swoon over every post in this series and more often than not, when I see someone’s style that feels most like my own, I realize I already own 90% of the pieces I love on the person profiled. Talk about motivation to shop my own closet – thank you, CoJ team!

    • Joanna Goddard says...

      yes, her kids are so delicious!

    • Elisabeth says...

      I had the same experience, Sheri. I was envying Priscilla’s sense of style and then went, “Wait…I have a lot of similar pieces…” Her week of outfits was both inspirational and validating of my own instincts.

    • Hi Sheri!
      The fact that you called me “lovely” which is basically my favorite word ever and then went on to talk about being aware and expressing my true self AND THEN commented on my cute kids! That basically makes you a WINNER! (Don’t tell everybody else ;) because I don’t like to play favorites) but thank you thank you for the sweetest words!! And also, super exciting that you already own all these pieces! Let’s be forever twinsies!!

  52. Marisa says...

    Wow! She is stunning!!!!!!!!!

    • THANK YOU!!!!!!!

    Your killing it, Emilia Clarke doppelgänger. Loving the inspiration for monotone with flair.

    • Hold up! This comment straight up made me flick my hair!
      I literally walked straight to my husband who is a huge Emilia Clarke fan and said, oh guess what….one of my comments said I was basically Emilia Clarke…(with an added flick of the hair and a wink). So thank you very much for that moment!!!

  54. I love how laidback but elegant her style is! Those Everlane sandals in the first photo are right up my alley!

    • Thank you so very much! The Everlane sandals are so comfortable and chic. I promise you will love them :)
