I am getting ready to pop some champagne, dance on some tables + SPARKLE ✨ OK…maybe not dance on tables hehe…we will be having a quiet night at home but I am for sure ready to sparkle + what better way to do that than with a chic sequin skirt!
I have been wanting to pull off a sequin skirt for years + figured NYE is the perfect time to go for it! The key with a sparkly sequin number like this one is to let it take center stage + not overdo it with the other accessories.
I paired this skirt with a simple black chiffon camisole (to not overdo it with the sparkle) + a fuzzy jacket since whether you are in LA, NY, Vegas, Miami or anywhere else, NYE tends to get chilly + I am always cold so this jacket is style while also cozy.
I went simple with my heels + bag. You can never go wrong with black pumps + a classic Chanel!
I feel every gal should invest in a classic Chanel flap bag (they retain value if you ever want to sell it) + they match with everything. I feel the same way about black pointed toe pumps. I have never put on an outfit that black pointed toe pumps couldn’t match perfectly with.
ICYMI – I am in the full on holiday spirit, so that means I am sharing looks like this one that is perfect to wear for your next Holiday event, party or gathering. I love a chic velvet skirt for the holidays because there are so many various ways to style it + it is always appropriate. While I don’t have an office holiday party to go to this year, I always struggled with trying to find a corporate appropriate holiday look that was chic + festive…this velvet skirt checks all of those boxes!
I used to think shawls were a little old fashion…but now I am all about them to class up any look + make a slightly risque look a bit more conservative depending on the occasion. I am linking to some of my favorites below (not only do they keep ya warm in the cold winter months but they also help pull your entire look together).
As for shoes, I went with these festive feather heels. I love the fluffy heel look year round, but especially during the holidays – plus when wearing open toe they keep your feet a little toasty haha 😉
I hope ya’ll had a fun weekend (especially if you were at Coachella)! My boo + I decided to hang by the pool, capture some content for the blog + do some interior decor shopping (I love when he gets just as obsessed with decor as I do haha :p).
I love a good spring look + even more so a new colorful wall! I spotted this one in Pasadena + decided it was the perfect wall to shoot this spring look in front of. I love new lightweight outerwear especially for LA spring weather since the weather has been all over the place lately. Over the weekend it was in the 80s, today the 60s and tomorrow it could be the 90s so layering easy pieces like this one from Nami Style are key!
I layered this cardigan over a simple black camisole (currently on sale from Kohls) + polka dot skater skirt. It’s great for work or play + can easily be dressed up or down with heels or flats or sandals.
Happy Monday + Happy Martin Luther King Day! I have been a little swamped catching up with work, shooting new content + then took a little trip to Palm Springs with my bestie who I haven’t seen in foreverrr…when I say forever I actually mean forever – 5 months, no biggie, guess that’s what happens when you are adults who have demanding careers with a lot of travel haha :p Anyways, before I left for my most recent trip, I was visiting my family in NY for the holidays where I of course headed into my old stomping grounds…NYC!! Oh how I missed the Big Apple…until I went over to the west side to shoot some cityscape pictures + nearly froze to death…I became a bit of a wuss when it comes to the cold – does this mean I am officially a ‘valley girl‘? haha 😉
While I was in the city I of course had to shoot some new looks — gotta get those NYC scenes in, no yellow taxi cabs in LA…Just plenty of traffic filled with Ubers :p
I got this floral bomber jacket from She In right before I left and I have pretty much made it a staple in my wardrobe ever since. Whether you dress it up for a night out with skinny jeans + pumps or keep it casual with leggings + some sweet kicks, this jacket is going to become your newest obsession…trust me.
Fun Fact: I had to practically walk in traffic to get these shots in the middle of the day in Soho…Lydia (my fav NY based photographer) is quite the trooper…let me tell ya haha 😉
Luckily I was comfortable when shooting because I am sporting Slink Jeans. They are purposely designed for gals that are curvy and want a pair of jeans that will hug every curve in a chic way. The pair I am wearing is a legging like material and they are comfy enough to spend the entire day in without feeling like your jeans are digging in to you. Slink Jeans are just easy…they fit perfectly and let me feel confident no matter what I style them with ♥
I still have a soft spot for white pointed toe pumps (while I wear these babies for pictures and they are slightly big on me, I find nothing more chic than white pumps year round)! I am contemplating investing in a pair of white Manolo’s…very Carrie Bradshaw esq…stay tuned 😉
When I headed to Palm Springs two weeks ago, one of my ‘must see‘ stops was the Cabazon Dinosaurs! Basically I am a kid at heart, so the thought of being able to take photos with a real life dino (kiddingobviously haha) was a dream come true! :p Ok, so maybe they weren’t actually alive (if they were I may be a tad more terrified + probably wouldn’t be modeling a new outfit in front of them haha) but they were pretty awesome to see and were a great place to show off some of my new pieces I will be transitioning from summer way into fall!
