Living in a D R E A M…because this coat is beyond warm + fuzzy so it feels like I am living on cloud nine ♥
Funny enough it has been pretty chilly in LA so I have been getting a lot of use out of this coat that I originally got to wear in London when visiting my boo. I thought it was marshmallow chic haha or a teddy bear coat but instead my bf named me WAMPA because of it. I had absolutely no clue what the hell a wampa was (apparently a Star Wars reference) but because of this coat my new nickname was born so now my bf calls me wampa (even if I am not wearing this oversized fuzzy coat) haha :p
I am obsessed with this coat (and apparently so is everyone else) because I have been seeing fuzzy teddy bear coats everywhere! They aren’t just stylish but also quite warm + cozy.
What accessory pulls every outfit together? SUNNIES! I have been wearing these Diff Eyewear sunnies left + right (I just can’t get enough of them). What I love about Diff Eyewear is their endless selection as well as their charitable initiatives – shopping + feeling good about it is something I am a big fan of 🙂
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 🙂
Today I am…sittin’ pretty (on the blog here at least). Currently I am wrapped in a towel sitting on my bed watching re-runs of ‘Girlfriends’ Guide To Divorce’ (best show ever btw! current obsession) and relaxing after my return to the Big Apple today for my first day at my new job…which I LOVE! It’s crazy how sometimes things just fall perfectly into place…when you feel like you truly belong somewhere and your voice is heard…it’s a great feeling let me tell ya and if you haven’t experienced it yet, don’t worry one day you will.
I kept being anti-winter and anti NYC weather for the longest time but with looks like this, I can begin to embrace a little cold here and there 😉 Typically when I begin to put a look together I base it around one key piece…today’s would clearly be this great shearling vest that I got at a local boutique by me but I found similar options here, here + here. I LOVE a great vest and this shearling one keeps me warm and cozy…win/win!I really wanted the vest to take center stage so I paired it with a simplewhite cable knit sweater and black ripped jeans (both are winter staples in my book)! I always think Old Navy has the best cable knit sweaters but maybe that’s because I love a great bargain as well 😉 And my favorite part…bag and shoes! I am OBSESSED with these leopard ankle strap sandals that I snagged for…$7 at DSW! Yes, you heard me…$7! While they are no longer available I found you guys options here + here (all affordable, don’t you worry)!As you all know…I love Rebecca Minkoff and her fabulous ‘Affair’ bag available with free shipping from Zappos here. And even in the winter months I still need my mirrored aviators…they just add a little ‘pop’ to any look don’t ya think?Alright I think that’s all for now folks…I am half asleep and need some rest to get ready for another busy day in NYC!
