Hi, loves! I've been really experimenting with my looks lately. This one is one of my recent favs. It's perfect for the weather right now -- I felt cute and chic and was still warm with the sweater and boots. I am very big on "comfy and cute" looks. I do a ton of running around, so it is very important for me to feel comfortable all day. I love the combination of the materials in this look. I got the items awhile ago, but I found very similar items for you guys to recreate! xo
Hi, guys! Sooo, I really wanted to have this post up before the long weekend, buuut clearly that didn't happen. It was a very busy week for me and this weekend flew by with friends and family. Sorrrrryyyy, lovies! I am excited to share this look with you all though. I love it so much because it is extremely versatile -- I could wear it to run errands and transition into a girls' night out or date night with only a switch of my shoes and purse. Hollaaa. I hope you guys enjoy! xoxo
Hi, dolls! My outfits are starting to transition and I'm getting ready for fall, but it is still summer here in LA. It's probably even hotter now than the beginning of summer. It's been darker and more gloomy but hot and humid -- my outfits have been loose and airy. This outfit was so comfortable and cutesy I almost wanted to wear it two days in a row! (...just kidding .... kinda :P) I'm shooting new looks for you all this weekend, so stay tuned! xoxo

Hey, everyone! I have recently REALLY fell in love with ripped jeans. I've worn them here and there, but lately I have really found them to be a perfect summer (and summer evening) piece. Living in LA, you can also get away with wearing them all year round without freezing, but especially during summer they have become my go-to. There are so many styles in jeans, as you all know, so of course there are plenty of styles to meet everyone's needs in ripped jeans as well.
Pacsun is having a sale on jeans right now, so take advantage! I went today and they have a coupon that they hand you in the store for $10 off all jeans and they have another deal going on for 2 pairs of jeans for $69. They also have 20% off the entire site! Check it out! They have a good variety of ripped jeans for men and women! hollaaa. (CLICK PHOTO FOR DIRECT LINK.)
I know men tend to have a limited selection on items, so here are some options just for you, fellas! (CLICK PHOTO FOR DIRECT LINK.)
There are so many options for you all ... too many to display. Some other great places to find ripped jeans are Nordstrom, Urban Outfitters, Macy's, and Zara. I am a big fan of all of those places.
Hope this was helpful! xo

It's that time of the year again! It's cold, it's rainy, it's sweater weather! Some people think sweaters are for "old people and grandparents." For us fashion addicts, that's laughable. There are multiple ways to wear sweaters! In California, where we wear Uggs with shorts and tank tops, sweaters are worn all year round actually. Let's take a look at some ways you can wear your sweater.
My Top Picks (Click photo to get your very own!)
The nice thing about sweaters is they go with pretty much everything! You can dress them up and down, which makes them very important pieces in your wardrobe! It's like winning the lottery when you have a article of clothing that serves multiple purposes! Okay, well maybe not like winning the lottery exactly, but it's pretty close! ;)
Fashion is what you buy. Style is what you do with it.
I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday! I last spoke about holiday wear and exampled some looks.
This year I went with a nude palette with some contrasting fabrics. I'm all about detail. When you have a piece that makes a statement on its own, everything else can be simple and clean looking. Let your statement pieces take center stage!
I wanted to wear something that was fun and flirty but still modest and classy. The meshed long sleeves in this dress gave me just that! An open neck is so beautiful and the nude colored top gave me that look I was going for! Lace is definitely a favorite of mine. If done nicely, it can be very sexy and still modest and classy. I fell in love with this dress as soon as I tried it on. I debated between nude and black heels. I really wanted to keep the look soft, so I went with the nude heels to keep the attention on the dress instead of my shoes.
There were two looks within my family that really stood out to me. I think these two definitely won "best dressed" this year in my book. Allow me to show them off.
This look on my little cousin (20 years old) is flawless. She too stuck with a soft nude palette. One thing I love about this look is that it's age appropriate. High waisted bottoms and crop tops are very in right now. She played around with the 80's style while still keeping it modest. The elastic in the skirt still shows off her petite frame without giving everything away. Similar to my dress, she has contrasting fabrics. Both items are simple, but the change in fabric from the top to the skirt make the whole outfit stand out. Instead of high stilettos or platform heels, she wore wedges keeping the look young and playful. I think that was a perfect choice for this look!
My second best dressed goes to my mom (43 years old). Moms want to look good too! The key to dressing as a mom (or any older woman) is to dress age appropriate. Be beautiful not a "MILF." I loved what my mom chose to wear! Like my mom, a lot of women want to be dressed but don't necessarily have the desire to do a lot to get there. Understandable. A romper is PERFECT! It's easy, simple, and stands out! The tighter middle still allowed my moms curves to be displayed and the flow of the rest made sure people knew that she didn't have to show it all off. The V-cut was just the right length to give an open neck without being too revealing. Throw on some heels and you're good to go! I'm so proud of my mom's sense of style and beauty!
I hope you enjoyed getting dressed for the holidays this year!
