Happy Tuesday! Another crazy week ahead (when will it slow down? who knows :p)…I have been swamped with work + prepping to head home to NYC this week for the Holidays! Although I am excited about seeing my family, friends + most of all…my dogs hehe I am not looking forward to the freezing temperatures – ugh :/ Anyways, thinking of those cold NYC winter days has me cherishing the much less cold LA ones haha One of the reasons I love LA is that I can mix my favorite spring/summer pieces with my fall/winter essentials.
Take this look for example, mixing this cozy pink coat from SheIn with my favorite (as you may know by now, I have a slight obsession with white skinny jeans) white jeans! White jeans were my signature wear for summer (actually pretty much year round haha) + this coat is the perfect size + style for cooler temps in LA without a snowstorm haha (no parka needed here :p)
Feelin’ Fringy…and feeling ready for the weekend! Work has been cray cray (running all the social channels + planning upcoming videos is a lot of work…exciting but work haha :p) In case you haven’t been in the loop, in addition to managing all of the BH Cosmetics social media, I took on directing + planning the YouTube videos as well…getting my feet wet in the video world is a ton of fun and is kinda giving me the itch to want to focus more on YouTube videos myself…what do you think? Should MissyOnMadison head to YouTube (although I already have a channel, I would love to get on there and doing videos on a consistent basis)! We shall see what happens♥ BUT exciting news, this is the first outfit post shot in Burbank…my new HOME town! woohoo!
Till I decide to step up my YouTube game, let’s break down this look the old fashion way 😉
Some new S U M M E R accessories are here to play! I LOVE Nicole Lee USA bags! Made in LA, colorful, fun prints + patterns…what more can a gal need? :p This Dream Flower Tote is great to wear for work or play.
My fringe heels are from AMI Clubwear and are perfect for jeans, a skirt, a dress…just about anything! The taupe color and the low heel are ideal for everyday wear and are perfect for the office to happy hour.
Yay for Fri-Y A Y! It’s crazy to think that the Holiday’s are right around the corner and that calls for tons of dresses, glitz + glam. Now while I am in full support of glitter, sparkle and a chic LBD…why not try a new look this season? Maybe a little fringe paired with some leather? Edgy Holiday…here it is!The whole look is based around this Coffee Shop Coats fringe leather jacket. Nothing screams edgy like leather and fringe, this jacket is perfect for a night out, weekend errands and even your upcoming parties! Why not add a little extra sass to the ordinarily boring Holiday dresses, jumpsuits and looks…Fringe is in, give it a whirl! Traditionally leather jackets are paired with skinny jeans or a casual look and adding heels dresses the look up.
Let’s break down the accessories. Ok…so mirrored Ray Bans aren’t necessarily ‘Holiday Party‘ attire (I mean you will be inside for some egg nog + yummy aux devoirs) but they make you feel cool, calm and collected on the way to the party.
My Rebecca Minkoff Affair bag is great for Holiday parties (and beyond). The quilted design is dressy and it has a ton of room for all of your party essentials (extra hairspray, lip gloss, back up phone charger etc.).
As for my shoes…well these are bound to make a statement at any party. The fringe detail and the sandal design adds flair and shows off your pedi for any occasion! Here are a few of my favorites:
It’s F R I – Y A Y and that means an end to a short work week! Double Y A Y! Another thing I often find myself saying ‘Y A Y’ about everyday? The fact that living in LA means I get to be surrounded by gorgeous Palm Trees everyday. Call it dorky, but I guess being an East Coast native, seeing palm trees all the time excites me considering they are non-existent in NY. Hey NYC may be having NYFW but it is missing sunshine, great weather and these colorful beauties!The day before I left NY to road trip to LA, I did a little last minute shopping at Kohls (because while my dad was yelling for me to get all of my belongings together my mom found some coupons that I simply ‘had‘ to use :p I guess I didn’t think I would ever shop at Kohls again — little did I know there is one literally 10 minutes from my office haha #Addict)
Anyway, this Palm Print top was that last minute impulse buy I had to buy because I felt like it signified Cali and my exciting move from the East Coast. I feel like a lot of my clothes have a sentimental value, but this top, I will always remember being purchased the day before I moved 🙂
Red…White + a little F R I N G E! Those are the vibes I am feeling for the upcoming Labor Day Weekend! Other than all of the great sales (which I will be sharing my favorites from of course – stay tuned :p), I love how Labor Day weekend is the last time to really stand out in your summer time favorites (although, knowing me I will still be wearing my summer favs well into fall haha). I figured prepping for the weekend is the perfect time to show my patriotic side once again! I am kinda in an ‘I Love America‘ state of mind after seeing Kid Rock over the weekend + his amazing tribute to working class America…all of the soldiers, marines and more who fought + continue to fight each and everyday to make sure we are ‘Born Free‘! ICYMI, I am a HUGE Kid Rock fan and was in love at his concert Saturday night…I was supposed to see him 4th of July weekend back in NY (before I knew I was moving) but then I moved here to LA a month before the concert + missed going 🙁 So seeing him Saturday literally made my summer <3Anyways…on a side note, I should probably get to breaking down this amazing outfit which is fully stocked on color + feminine details…just what I like! My blue pleated high low skirt is from LoveShoppingMiami.com whose website makes me instantly happy because it is filled with fun colors, prints + styles fit for any season! I paired it with a simple white crop top because I mean come on, doesn’t the skirt just speak for itself?
My fav part of this outfit is of course are these red fringe heels from AMI Clubwear…they are instantly becoming my go-to shoe for a night out because the fun fringe detail and the red hue can really spice up any look 😉 I guess you can say they are red hot haha!
Accessories I kept simple as well and went for a metallic theme…got to love a little glitz. I decided to give this silver Michael Kors watch a little love since I haven’t worn it in such a long time along with this metallic silver clutch from Carolinna Espinosa (similar styles here + here).
And it wouldn’t be a summer outfit without my mirrored Ray Ban sunnies right? hehe I’ve seriously worn these All Summer Long (like my Kid Rock reference sprinkled in there haha)
