Since moving to LA I learned that just because the weather is warm and makes me want to wear dresses and bright colors all the time, LA natives rarely do! Isn’t it funny how NYers crave the warmth and light layers while LA natives desperately want to wear dark hues, coats and winter wear? I guess it’s like the old saying goes…you always want what you don’t have huh? 😉
I always thought wearing all black was a bit morbid but hey maybe it can be a little sexy? I am obsessed with this long sleeve criss cross top from AMI Clubwear — clearly it’s become a trend as of recent because I have been seeing tops like this all over…a few of my favorites are below!
I paired it with my favorite ‘going’ out pants…leggings haha (who said leggings can’t be sexy)! These leather leggings from Hue are great for work or play and paired with this top make for one #flawless look that’s both comfortable yet stylish!
With an all black look, the accessories really have to P O P + make a statement…these AMI Clubwear silver gladiator heels certainly do the trick! They are super comfortable (shocking I know) AND they can match with everything!! Win / Win!
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 🙂
And the weekend is over…time to embark on a new week and hopefully that involves (plenty) of green tea, some exciting packages (I may or may not have done a little online shopping this weekend — #oops…only way to see is on SnapChat – MissyOnMadison) + getting some work done (that’s kinda required I guess huh :p). If you weren’t already aware, I am slightlyaddicted to green tea and my addiction got even worse over the weekend, when I headed to Costco and I spotted their citrus green tea which if you haven’t tried it, you are missing out because it is literally the most AMAZING green tea I have ever had (thanks mom :p)! My mom is always trying to get me to save money and be on a budget but in my mind…if it’s on sale I saved money duh hehe Well, in her never ending battle to get me to save money she suggested I try the Costco brand green tea to cut out my daily Starbucks expenditure (after doubting her, I gave in and got the tea)…best purchase I made this weekend…actually it was the best thing that happened to me this weekend…let’s just say I had the most awkward date ever and pretty much contemplated walking out on it (this was an absolute first)…but onto a lighter subject haha…my outfit 😉
Happy Friday Loves! I got a special little package the other day from Lysse and I couldn’t wait to style this top…yes ladies and gents this ‘white dress’ is actually the Lysse Cold Shoulder Top with Inner Control Tank. I decided to be adventurous and order it in a larger size so I can rock it as a dress AND as a top…versatility…that’s the best thing to incorporate into your closet 🙂 My necklace is from Sparkle Republic Jewelry and I’d say it definitely sparkles 😉 One of the things I love about blogging? Getting to try out new brands and showcase them on my site! My shoes are from…drum roll please…Payless! I love nude strappy sandals! They are gorgeous for every occasion and nude elongates your legs! My neon satchel is from Steve Madden, while it’s no longer available, I found a similar one from Michael Kors! Sorry but I love my mirrored aviators…definitely wearing them year round and I’m convinced I look bad a** with them 😉 Or at least I’d like to think so! I hope you all have a fabulous weekend…I’m not quite sure what I have planned yet, but I am attending a night of comedy later tonight at my client’s bar & grill ‘Light House On The Runway‘…will you guys do me a favor? Follow Light House On The Runway on Instagram & Facebook 🙂 Greatly Appreciated! I run their social media & built their website!Shop My Look <3
Happy Friday Loves and Happy August 1st! I can’t believe it’s August already…i feel as though the summer has been flying by so fast so I need to make sure I get my fair share of neon summer looks in on the blog…including this one! A little fun fact about me…My favorite color is purple…so I absolutely love this ASOS purple cami. While this top was purchased months ago and is no longer available, I did find a very similar one from Revolve Clothing that I may actually order myself…who said you can’t have similar tops from different brands? If you find something that suits you stick with it! My light wash jeans are from Nordstrom…they have the absolute best jeans! These juniors jeans fit me great and I love how I can easily cuff them up for a casual laid back vibe!I love anything nude…yea kinda sounds a tad inappropriate but oh well, I’m referring to nude bags, shoes etc. First of nude shoes are a summer essential, especially espadrille wedges like these. They are the go to summer shoe for every fashionista. Dress them up or dress them down…they are always in style and on trend. In addition to my love for nude shoes, I also have another slight obsession…NEON! Cambridge Satchel totally got me when they unleashed all their neon satchels. Pretty, functional and adds an instant pop of color to any outfit.As if the brightness of the bag wasn’t enough, I had to add even more color with my frosted jelly link bracelet from BaubleBar and my Candles & Confetti pink and purple bangles (how gorgeous are they? The packaging was even better…they literally came with confetti!) You know it wouldn’t be a summer time fine look without my favorite mirrored aviators! (Seriously obsessed with the shot below…my brother did a fabulous job with photos this week…my prayers have been answered!)This is the perfect weekend outfit. Wear it during the day with the girls and then later at night for date night…well fitting jeans, nude wedges and a pop of color is my go to summer look 🙂 Shop My Look Below <3
