I had a pretty busy weekend – between last minute holiday shopping, prepping for my upcoming trip to London for Christmas (just a week and a half away!! ahh) + last but not least…I picked out my new car!!! I can’t wait to get it – such a busy month for Missy. Anyways…I wrapped all of Mike’s gifts (in Minions wrapping paper of course hehe :p) and began putting outfits together for London…more tourist shots are going to be popping up all over your Insta feed – beware haha
As I am prepping for the upcoming cold temperatures in London, I am excited about wearing my cozy coats + sweaters but I was melting in LA all weekend long. So what is the perfect piece to layer when winter in LA feels more like fall or spring? Easy…this Coalition LA vegan moto jacket.
This jacket is perfect transition temperatures like there are in LA now. Some days it is super hot + other days it is windy + breezy, so this jacket is the perfect in between!
Best part? It is VEGAN so it is PETA approved + animal friendly 🙂
Finally, a Monday I am excited about! I don’t know about you, but a three day work week sounds beyond thrilling if you ask me hehe :p I spent the weekend putting together some amazing gift guides for ya’ll – ICYMI check them out HERE + I began putting together some great looks for the holiday season! One look I shared last week is perfect for Thanksgiving with friends or family + today’s look is another great option for Thanksgiving wear as well.
I will be staying in LA for Turkey Day this year…which gives me extra time to take advantage of some great Black Friday + Cyber Monday steals + deals (which are starting even earlier this year, leaving more time to shop)! I will put together a full guide by Thursday so you can shop after your yummy feast (oh how I love turkey + stuffing).
One Black Friday / Cyber Monday sale I am excited to shop is Old Navy’s! While I am not sure of what their promo will be yet – it is always a good one year after year. Old Navy has been one of my favorite go-to stores for head to toe style at an affordable price point for years now. Whether it is their chic outerwear, on trend shoes or cozy knits + sweaters, Old Navy always has what I am looking for…including what to wear for the holiday season or how they like to call it, HoliYAYs!
One of my current favorites of the season is this fall fresh look I put together thanks to great styles at Old Navy.
I have always been ‘mad for plaid‘ so when I spotted this plaid button down top in a soft washed fabric I knew I needed it! What I love about this blouse is that you can wear it various ways. Since I decided to pair it with this suede button up skirt, I felt tying it in the front would add a little ‘somethin somethin‘ to the look 😉
I also styled it loose with a pair of jeans + heeled booties (stay tuned for that look). This skirt is something I typically wouldn’t have went for but I decided to give it a shot + I am so glad I did! It comes in maroon, navy + a camel hue – all great options for fall occasions + get-togethers.
Velvet is all the rage this season! From dresses, to bags, to blouses + even shoes…this material is my favorite since it is festive for the holidays + is so chic to style.
I’ve always felt that Old Navy had the best selection of ‘on trend’ shoes for an affordable price, and these velvet ankle strap sandals are no exception. These babies are under $35 + come in maroon, black + leopardprint. Style them with jeans, skirts, dresses + more…the best part? They are comfortable!!
Since I always like to throw in a designer bag with my look to mix + match high and low, I paired this look with my Chanel.
Let the countdown begin!Thanksgiving is just days away + that means time to come up with exciting topics to chat about at dinner with family and/or friends + most importantly what to wear! I am getting myself on track with healthy eating + portion control this season, so what better way to be mindful of what you are eating on Turkey Day than by wearing skinny jeans that will be sure to let ya know when you’ve had enough stuffing for one night hehe :p
I had to dress up the jeans with a little hint of orange because I always think ‘orange‘ when I think Thanksgiving. The perfect top? This ruffle asymmetrical sweater from Pleione. It is cozy, stylish + isn’t too dressy for a family lounge session after dinner but also isn’t too sloppy to be seated next to grandma at the dining room table haha…
These jeans are super comfy because they are a jegging like material but they also button so they give ya the warning when chowing down on delicious turkey.
If you are in a cooler place for the holidays, this top is great to layer with a faux fur vest as well! When I was in NY I always opted for a vest because…why not right? 😉
This Louis Vuitton Pouchette Metis bag is my obsession + I highly recommend it to be on your holiday wish list however tracking this beauty down is a bit of a challenge because it is currently a year long wait list for it (no joke) haha However they have similar styles available now at certain LV locations.
These nude ankle strap heels are amazing. Not only do they match with everything but they are great for dressed up or casual occasions.
My sunnies are from Diff Eyewear! I have been dying to try out their sunnies so when these beauties got sent my way I was beyond excited! These ones will be on sale for Black Friday so be sure to snag yours as a ‘gift to you‘ next weekend!
Hello NOVEMBER ♥ With Halloween over, Thanksgiving and Christmas are right around the corner! That means it’s time to begin holiday shopping + gift guides (stay tuned)! The funny thing about living in LA is that you can’t really differentiate seasons because it is always sunny + warm all the time…with that said it makes it the perfect time to style some of your summer favorites well into fall with the right shoes + accessories.
I am always one to wear white after Labor Day but especially easy pieces like this dress that can be easily transitioned by adding a floppy hat + booties! I call that a win!!
I love this dress because it is just so easy to throw on + it is comfy. Dress it up, dress it down, either way it is a piece you should add to your wardrobe. I linked to similar styles below.
A fall staple of mine has always been a great floppy hat. I have this style in maroon, black + tan and it is a great piece to incorporate into your look (especially if you are having a bad hair day hehe).
I am obsessed with these booties! They are beyond comfy and they are great for daytime wear or for a night out look since they have a mid-high heel and a peep toe style.
Fun Fact: This Louis Vuitton Speedy Bag was one of my first large designer bags I got when I was younger. The classic style will always be in trend + is a great fall handbag for work or play.
