Happy Monday everyone! Finally after a long weekend in bed and a marathon of Law and Order SVU, I am recovering from being sick + off to work. I feel like I have so much to catch up on…does that ever happen to you after being sick? Feeling like you are so behind and need to get back on track? Well it’s time to start the week fresh and get to it 😉 Besides being sick all weekend, something else was happening here in LA…a total heatwave! It may be October but it feels far from it in Cali (yesterday when I was shooting pictures it was over 90 degrees) so my work attire? A short suit…like this one 😉
A trend I have been loving for fall is the sleeveless blazer. It’s the perfect choice for those hot LA days when you want to just wear shorts and a tee to the office but need to dress things up just a bit. I paired this sleeveless blazer with chiffon high waisted shorts + added a simple white v neck blouse. What I love about this look is it’s office appropriate P L U S it is great to wear straight from work to happy hour! 2 in 1 is so much fun :p
The perfect way to dress up a black and white look is with some prints + bright colors. I love these leopard ankle strap heels because they add a little extra ‘spice‘ to any look. For that extra ‘pop of color‘ I wore my trustee neon cambridge satchel.
I’ve always had a thing for monograms, so I was thrilled when ShopPrimaDonna.com sent me this ‘M‘ necklace. I think it’s such a classic piece and love wearing it to work…it’s an easy go-to necklace in the morning and matches perfectly with any look.
It’s weird to experience fall here in LA…leaves are on the ground but the weather just doesn’t match. Sometimes I miss NY and the season changes but I am sure when it hits winter and I am still able to enjoy sunshine and beach weather I will l o v e it! Can’t wait to see 🙂
Why blend in when you were born to stand out? Well for the purposes of this post, I am choosing to blend in 😉 It’s rare that your dress perfectly matches your surroundings, and when it happens you know you have to snap some photos! This Shabby Apple dress has become my summer time go-to because it’s easy, comfy and stands out in it’s own unique way…pair it with different accessories to dress it up or down and it’s a piece that can be worn all summer long.
It’s finally coming together…the apartment that is 😉 Slowly but surely furniture is arriving, things are being assembled and my stress is easing…now I am slowly getting back into my blogging routine (I felt like I have been MIA lately and have so many things to shoot which luckily my awesome roommate, Ali will help me with this weekend – stay tuned and follow along on Periscope *new app obsession + SnapChat —MissyOnMadison).
I figured I would A) Share this look I had shot back in Long Island before I moved (a little TBT if you will) + B) Share a little about what is happening with me now!
Happy Weekend Lovers! Time for another Weekend Wish List / Holiday Gift Guide! Every fashionista loves a little bling at any age and rather than going with the signature birth stone or initial or monogram…why not think a little outside the box and buy something a little spiritual yet personal at the same time…their zodiac sign! Even if someone doesn’t believe in horoscopes, I find it’s always an interesting little treat to see what someones zodiac sign says about them. Whether you check updates about your sign religiously or if you just simply know the basics about your sign, a chic necklace, ring or bracelet is an easy go to for the holiday season when it comes to gift giving. If you are looking to make the gift a little more special, why not find some interesting information about the person who you are gifting’s sign. Most book stores have some facts about every sign or you can even google and type up or hand write on some nice stationary a little about that particular sign. Sky’s the limit 😉
