Hallelujah the temperatures are finally dropping in LA! Still not enough for jackets yet, but totally perfect for sweaters. This lightweight slouchy sweater from Brandy Melville is perfect for transitional weather. I love the super low V neck, unbuttoned and paired with a silk triangle bra brings just enough sex appeal to an outfit without being vulgar. The new hair is making me want to add hints of 70's vibes to every outfit I wear. Today it's the flared jeans, one of my favorite jean silhouettes this season. If there is one thing you need to get for a wardrobe update, it is the flared jeans. I've been wearing them with tops I've worn a bunch of times before and it always gives the outfit an updated look, the telltale sign of a really good investment piece.

Suede is a favorite of mine for the upcoming season, especially in this buttery camel color. I purchased this topshop pinafore the other day thinking it would look pretty rad layered over a fitted turtleneck in the winter, but also knowing that it could very well work for the 90 degree weather we are currently experiencing. It's a great transitional piece, giving you the feeling of fall while still keeping you cool. I doubled up on the suede by pairing it with my little suede necktie and kept the rest of the outfit minimal and bare. I call it minimal 70's, great for when you want to experiment with the 70's trend without straying too far from your comfort zone. Oh, also I forgot to mention in my last post that I gave my hair a little update. Sal from Ramirez Tran Salon totally transformed my hair to a modern 70's shag. I've never been so happy with a haircut before in my life. LA peeps, I definitely recommend going to Sal for a new look in the upcoming season. If you're hesitant about 70's inspired clothing this season, try a 70's inspired hairdo! It's another great way to experiment with the biggest trend of 2015.

Wearing all black to a college graduation as if I was going to a funeral. Classic Yuka. It's true what they say, when in doubt, wear all black. I wore this outfit last week when my sister graduated nursing school. Although it is a colorless outfit, I still kept it interesting by adding fun accessories. These Zara flats are the newest addition to my shoe collection. Obsessed with these at the moment so be prepared to see a lot of these babies in the next few months. They literally go with everything! Congrats to my baby sis for her accomplishment. Feeling like a super proud big sis right now. =)
