Hello 2 0 1 6! It’s the first Monday of the New Year…the beginning of a new chapter, a new work week + a chance to make some New Year’s Resolutions happen (my entire list of resolutions are coming to the blog this week :p)! To start things off, one of my New Year’s Resolutions is to try more trends I would normally steer clear of…case in point, the cape / poncho trend. I never knew if I could pull it off but wearing a blanket as a sweater seems to make perfect sense to me 😉 This is one trend I am fully supportive of for the winter (especially winters here in LA that aren’t nearly as bad as they are in NY).In addition to my new Ponchoobsession, I am still a huge fan of blanket scarves…they make for the perfect ‘warm + cozy‘ outfit! Pair a chic floppy hat with both of these winter must haves and you got yourself the ideal ‘winter casual‘ look! Boo Yah! 😉
I always love a statement bag, this Vera Bradley leopard satchel does just the trick…great quality, perfect size for work or play + adds a little extra ‘something‘ to any outfit!
As for boots…I fell head-over-heels for these OTK taupe suede boots. Match with anything and they are comfortable…what more can a gal ask for 😉
One New Year’s Resolution down…only about a million more to go haha Stay Tuned…
Happy Monday! I finally got to shoot some new looks this weekend and I am super excited to embrace more winter vibes (although it was 75 degrees here in LA when I shot them haha). What I love about winter in LA is that since it’s still warm I can basically wear my NY fall favorites for an LA winter…win/win! Another thing I love about winter in LA? Gorgeous sunsets and backdrops like this one up in the Hollywood Hills (and there is no snow for me to slip on in my OTK boots :p).So let’s break down this pretty look (which I am completelyobsessed with btw). My basic tee is from Sea Of Pearls, based in LA…their tees are super soft, comfy and I l o v e them<3 I layered over it this black sleeveless blazer (such a popular trend for 2015 — still can’t believe the year is almost coming to a close). I of course had to wear a white skirt because I love transitioning my summer favorites into year round staples :p #SorryNotSorry
My new obsession? These Le Specs sunnies (from SunglassesShop) are super fun and unique. I am loving the shape along with the mirrored lenses <3 They are a great trade off from my usual Ray Bans.
My gorgeous new bling is from one of my fav LA babes..Marrin Costello! Her designs are chic, stylish and also add that boho flair suiting for any Cali gal 😉 You can see more of my favorites from her here!
