Embroidery & Stripes in Morro Bay

A few weekends ago, we took a trip to the Central Coast. On the way to our destination, we stopped in Morro Bay, a fun place to explore.

How to Incorporate Trends into Your Wardrobe


It was a nice day but rather cool in the morning. I decided to wear my embroidered jeans, a striped tee and a greenish jacket. I realized that I had incorporated several trends into my outfit. I only buy trendy items if I like them and they fit into my existing wardrobe. Stripes are always on trend in my book, and the long sleeve striped tee is several years old. Since stripes are a trend right now, it’s a great time to stock up on some new striped items because there are many striped pieces to choose from. 

The embroidered jeans really spoke to me. While most of my wardrobe is pretty muted, I do enjoy owning and wearing a few statement pieces, and the jeans make just enough of a statement. And while the green denim jacket isn’t close to greenery - the Pantone color of the year - I was recently surprised when I realized how many green items I actually have in my closet; I don’t think of myself as a “green” person.

  9. Wow! What a gorgeous bay! I love your embroidered jeans. What trends am I embracing this year? Embroidery for sure. Bomber Jackets. Blush accessories. And the Chloe shoes everyone is wearing (except I bought the Steve Madden knock offs).

    1. I just got a warmer bomber jacket for my trip to visit my parents as I have hardly any "in between jackets" since we don't need them much in California... And I realized that I really like it! Blush accessories are a favorite of mine, too.

  10. Love the pastel green of your jacket, and your embroidered jeans are so fun! :) I'm on a no shop so I'm missing out on buying all the cute embroidered pieces you see around which is a shame. Luckily I have a couple pieces in my wardrobe so I can enjoy them.

    And to me, stripes will always be a classic!

    Hope you are having a really good week so far.

  14. Thanks for joining the Top of the World Style linkup party. These embroidered jeans are quite wearable the way you styled them. Well done.

  15. I really like those jeans Andrea. And here I thought the jacket would be an army type color. But it isn't at all. It is a very soft and pretty pastel green. Very feminine in a casual sort of way. As for your question, I don't even know what is on trend right now... shiplap? That's pretty close to stripes, right?

    1. Thanks, Mary! And, yes, shiplap is a stripe... ;-)

  16. Although you look lovely in it, I am not embracing embroidery. Too much of a link to boho and I discovered I am definitely not boho. There are more trends at this moment I shy away from. Like cropped flared trousers.

    1. Embroidery definitely has a Boho vibe, but I like a little Boho. I recently bought a Boho top and am now questioning it as it may be a bit too Boho for me...

      I didn't like flared cropped trousers at all when they first appeared, but they are really growing on me at the moment...
