With a new year in full swing we are all sharing our New Year’s Resolutions to kick off a successful + prosperous 2020! One of the biggest resolutions we all make every year? Get healthy, get fit, loose weight + feel good! Easy right? Well while these goals tend to fall off after a few weeks into a new year, I am determined to keep mine going well past January + I want you to too!
Whether you are vowing to be zen with some yoga, get outdoors for a hike, cook up some new healthy meals or simply hit the gym, I am rounding up some key essentials to help you get off to a healthy + fit start in the new year!
2019 is coming to a close and I am ready for a bright + successful 2020 ahead! This year has been a whirlwind with gaining new clients, turning my independent consulting into a full blown agency + getting the opportunity to work with some of my biggest dream brands I could have only dreamed of! 2019 has been a pretty solid year so my New Year’s Resolution is to continue to grow, flourish + enter 2020 with a bright outlook filled with joy, pops of color + plenty of fun!
One of my favorite parts of 2019 was my ability to grow my business, travel + produce amazing events for my clients. This photoshoot was from my fall trip to NYC to produce an editor event for one of my beauty clients. Being able to head back to my home where my career started at the beginning of the decade + this time producing an event for a client I have through my own agency was beyond exciting. 10 years ago I was simply working in house for brands starting my career before even starting my blog…and here we are 10 years later…strutting through NYC looking Fly AF.
Now let’s break down this bold + colorful look…I fully plan on embracing more color in 2020 + you should too! Especially a bright color like yellow that just radiates good vibes + energy.
I am currently loving this Yellow L’Academie Blazer via REVOLVE. The material is amazing quality + I love the bright, bold color. It is a great piece to pair for work or play + adds a chic Pop Of Color to any look. I decided to pair it here in a casual chic way with my go-to skinny jeans from Blue Age Denim…these jeans fit me like a glove because the length is perfect for me without any alterations needed. Also loving this lace trim camisole from SHEIN – it comes in a variety of colors + it is a must-have for every gal’s wardrobe.
This YSL bag is one of my favorites…I love a good cobalt blue bag + when I spotted this beauty I knew I needed to have it! It’s the perfect hue to standout with any outfit. As for shoes I opted for these chic + comfortable white Marc Fischer ankle booties…I can wear these all day without any issues…now that makes a shoe a shoe!
Christmas is just 2 days away + that means NYE is around the corner! While we aren’t going out or partying hard, we are going to ring in the new year in style at home with family + friends which is excuse enough for me to dress up and stand out with a little sparkle + shine….so where is a gal to go to find the best pieces to show up to the NYE party in style? REVOLVE of course!
I jumped on the ‘micro‘ bag trend (sorry not sorry) + while I saw tons of cute styles out there I fell in LOVE with this Tory Burch style because it reminded me of a mini Birkin Bag (forever dreaming of Hermes so this is my next best option till I score one!) It comes in a variety of colors so you can rock the micro trend with any look!
This silver metallic sparkle dress is from Lovers + Friends via REVOLVE. I love the wrap style and tie waist…it’s super flattering and comfortable + is so girly + fun for any NYE party. It’s great for a night out or even a night in for a party with friends + family.
I styled this dress with a classic White Chanel Bag – perfect winter accessory + my new Manolo Blahnik Hangisi Pumps. I have been eyeing up these Manolo pumps ever since I Mr. Big proposed to Carrie with them in the Sex and The City movie. They have been my dream shoe + when I was able to score them 25% off during Friends + Family at Neiman Marcus I almost died…my inner Carrie is coming to life!
Are ya’ll ready to ring in the New Year in style?!
Are ya’ll ready to ring in the new year?! Crazy to think 2019 is coming to a close in just a week or so and a new exciting 2020 is ahead! While I love reflecting back on the year that’s passed, nothing excites me quite looking ahead to the future and especially dressing up for the occasion!
Whether you are watching the ball drop at a friend’s house, spending time with family or heading out to a party or club, one thing is for sure…NYE is time to bring on the sequins, metallic + SHINE! With that said I wanted to share two NYE festive looks perfect for you to ring in the new year!
Outfit 1 is this chic silver metallic midi skirt that is perfect to wear year round styled with a simple sequin top (hey sequins can be simple at times haha :p) This skirt is such a favorite of mine because it’s feminine, fun + flattering. Style it a variety of ways from pairing it with a sweater to a camisole and blazer to a normal top…this NYE look can easily transition well into the new year.
These pumps are a current favorite of mine…I love Manolo’s + these sparkly Manolo Blahnik pumps are perfect for making a statement on NYE! These pumps I also wear year round with jeans, leather pants + more because who doesn’t like to shine year round? My bag is my classic Chanel + a total must have when it comes to investing in designer handbags.
Now fo my second metallic look…I am loving this simple sequin cocktail dress perfect for the club paired with a shaggy fuzzy jacket to stay warm no matter where you are!
This sequin mini dress is from Amazon + retails for under $30 and is perfect for the club, party or any NYE occasion. It comes in a variety of colors + fits true to size.
I paired it with a shaggy coat like this one because it adds a little extra warmth without forgoing on style! I own this coat in a few different colors because I love it so much.
The metallic hues are perfect for NYE + are sure to make you stand out! I paired it with my go-to going out bag, my Chanel + then paired with these sparkly gold heels from Red Dress Boutique.
These heels come in a variety of colors from black, nude + silver to gold that are perfect for any festive occasion. Best part? They are super comfortable for all night wear because of the chunky heel!
Oh how time flies…I can’t believe Christmas is just a week away! Decorations are up, presents are wrapped, groceries have been bought + I am ready for a relaxing and festive week with family to lead into an exciting 2020.!
Whether you are keeping the holidays low key or going all out, this is one of my favorite times of year to reflect on everything that happened over the past year and think ahead to what will make the next year to come even better.
One of my favorite parts of the holiday season is the festive apparel…green and red will forever be my favorite holiday color scheme + every time I put it on I instantly feel holiday cheer!
It’s funny usually the holidays seem more magical and festive when you are a kid as opposed to being an adult but over the past few years, the holidays have always been magical for my boyfriend and I. We are super into decorating, venturing out to see local Christmas lights + shows, seeing Disneyland decorated for the holidays + watching every holiday cooking show Hulu has to offer haha :p
One of the parts I love most about the holidays is the time to be close to family and enjoy traditions. Something I learned over the years is that those moments occasionally change as you enter different stages of your life. The holidays with my family were nice but the holidays with my boyfriend are even more joyous and we create our own traditions that we can’t wait to pass down to our family one day…crazy to think but it’s what makes the holidays even more exciting!
Are you excited for the upcoming holidays? What are your Christmas traditions?
