Embracing the new year with a hot cup o’ joe + a cozy look. It’s back to the grind + I am invigorated + ready to kick ass in 2019! I have to be honest, 2018 was pretty freaking amazing up until NYE (let’s just say I got not so great news just hours before ringing in the new year while I was in bed sick ugh) but luckily my boo, always thinking positively got me excited for a new year, a new chapter + a new me!!
I am not one for New Year’s resolutions but I do have a few:
1. Kick ass in business
2. Continue to grow the blog
3. Travel more
5. Continue to loose weight (thanks to Jenny Craig)
6. Think positive + exude happiness, as my boo likes to say…You get what you give and in 2019 I am giving all good vibes in hopes of receiving the same back!
And of course…share more of my favorite outfits, products, tips + tricks…starting with this chic winter look!
My goal for winter is to share more warm weather looks. Since I am in LA I tend to rock dresses + comfy clothes year round + I realized in order to relate to everyone else in the world, I need to go back to my NY routes + share some chilly weather ensembles.
Happy Monday! It’s back to the daily grind and I am already exhausted just thinking about it! ICYMI, something exciting happened on Friday — I got the keys to my brand NEW apartment♥ Ahhh! I finally feel like I’ve made it on my own — I have went from living back home in NY with my family, to moving to LA + having a roommate to now getting a place that is truly my own! That means a sh*t ton of decorating + shopping posts will be happening (my mom + dad have already picked out a ton of stuff for me prior to me even getting the keys haha…safe to say they are just as excited as I am!)Anyways…back to this spring look…denim on denim. I love oversized button downs — especially chambray ones like this one because they match with anything and are super comfortable (my go-to for a casual look)! I paired it with these white distressed skinny jeans — perfect for spring and summer!
F L O W E R power! I am far from a ‘Boho Chic‘ kinda gal, but now that I am living in LA and festival season is upon us, I figured it only makes sense to share some Coachella inspired looks! I actually attended the Boohoo.com Coachella Pop-Up Shop last weekend where Bella Thorne + Mischa Barton were in attendance (oh hey there Marissa Cooper!)…safe to say my brother AKA PopCultureDiedIn2009 was beyond thrilled to get the insider scoop 😉 However I was pumped to see all the floral, fringe and boho-inspired pieces perfect to wear out in Palm Desert!
A signature piece everyone seems to be obsessing over this spring are Floral Bell Bottom Pants! I honestly can’t remember where I found these babies but I kinda love them and may bring them to Coachella with me (heck…they are totally coming haha)
I paired them with a simple white camisole (from Kohls) and layered over a chambray button down shirt (from Nordstrom Rack). While I know most boho gals will be rocking floral pants like these with a crop top…that ain’t my style. I like to show some skin, but not bare it all just yet (hey I still got time to prep for bikini season don’t I? haha)
My shoes and accessories are perfect for festival season as well! Wouldn’t be a festival without some fun neon and fringe — like these necklaces below! And platform shoes — why not right? Especially with bell bottom pants, kinda 70s vibes which I am digging 🙂
Happy Monday + Hello November! Crazy to think it is already November and the holiday season is upon us…it definitely feels weird not having the season change here in LA, I was sweating over the weekend while everyone in NY was bundling up in scarves and sweaters…perks of LA living 😉
Since I am not completely ready for sweater weather just yet, a little denim on denim action is the way to go :pThis button front denim skirt has been all over instagram, so I figured I may as well give it a go for an all denim look. I tucked in a white tank and layered a chambray button down shirt over it. Denim pieces are great to mix and match and they can be worn for work or play (this is a great casual look for work).
For my ‘Pop Of Color‘ I went for red (getting in that holiday spirit early :p). These red lace up flats are perfect for fall and add some color to any outfit. This pair from ASOS is similar, the ones I am wearing are from TopShop but are currently sold out.
Happy Friday! I wish I was more upbeat about the weekend but I am sitting home sick (ugh). I got the flu shot the other day and within 24 hours I am sick…this happens without fail every year…when will they come up with a shot that doesn’t make me sick after getting it jeez :p And I am sure all the traveling and airport waiting areas didn’t help either…On a brighter note, sick days = Law and Order SVU + Chicken Noodle Soup…I guess things can be worse right? (plus I am finally catching up on blogging which I feel like I’ve been slacking on the past two weeks — ever get that feeling? Where everything is happening all at once and you just need a little break?) 🙂This outfit is perfect to wear to work this fall and is a little flashback from my NYC days! It was shot just days before I got the news that I would be moving to LA (crazy to think I have been here since June now) and totally forgot about it :p Shabby Apple always has chic pieces that are great for work or play but this midi skirt is perfect office attire if you ask me — not too much leg…just the right amount 😉
I paired the midi skirt with this chambray button down shirt for a little retro vibe…I feel like a button down shirt tied like this is so cute (and just a tad sexy) reminds me of a pin-up girl what can I say. And of course these white pumps made a transition into fall because why not 😛
It wouldn’t be a ‘Missy’esq outfit without a bright red bag and this one did just the trick! And my signature black sunnies are a ‘must’ for the fall season. Plus I needed something to brighten my mood after this long exhausting week!
