The first few days back at the office after a long holiday weekend are always tough…that’s why I had to take a mini blog break the past few days since I needed to A) Open all of my Black Friday + Cyber Monday packages (which was a TON) hehe + B) Catch up on some sweat sessions after a turkey filled weekend! Funny enough, it doesn’t feel like winter time here in LA…it was actually like 85 degrees on Thanksgiving + I have been melting ever since. So what is a gal to do when she wants to rock some of her favorite cozy fall styles without the bitter cold weather? Style them with a skirt, duh!
Tobi.com has become my go-to for key pieces to add to your wardrobe over the past few months. From cozy sweaters like this cowl neck one to nude booties I will be rocking all season long…Tobi has everything I need to transition from fall to winter + any temperatures (from warm LA to cold London…these pieces will be life savers).
If you ask me, a cozy cowl neck sweater is always a good idea. Whether you style it with jeans, leggings or a skirt like I did here, they are bound to keep you looking chic while keeping you warm + toasty as well.
I opted to style it with a faux leather skirt since LA is too warm for pants at the moment haha So a skirt it is!
P.S. this outfit is great for family gatherings as well!
My sunnies are from Diff Eyewear – I am truly obsessed with their sunnies because they look like Raybans but at half the price! Plus, they work with a bunch of influencers + celebrities to create capsule collections that are too stylish to pass up. These ones come in various colors and are under $100!
Happy New Year! I can’t believe it’s officially 2017 + this is my first blog post of the new year – woohoo! I spent the holidays in NY with my family, but now I am back in sunny California – just where I like to be 😉 (me and snow don’t mix very well anymore haha) One of the perks of living in LA is how close I am to the beach! Seriously, who doesn’t love being just minutes away from some of the nicest beaches in the country?
One of my New Year’s Resolutions is to embrace being me + always say ‘yes‘ to adventures! What better way to start off the new year than with flaunting my shape in stunning Malibu wearing new swimwear from Coco Reef Swimwear. I love how Coco Reef’s pieces really help you embrace your figure and perfectly ‘suit’ every woman’s body type – a perk for this gal who has a difficult time finding swimwear since I always need a larger top but a smaller bottom (mix + match anyone?)
One of my favorite suits from them is this bikini set! I love the flowy ruffle top with a mesh overlay (for those days when you want to head to the beach but maybe are feeling a little bloated or just want a chic conservative look :p). I love how feminine this top is (considering I am such a girly girl after all haha) + I paired it with their Classic Skinny Dip Bikini Bottom. Coco Reef has bottoms that are ideal for mixing and matching for every bottom type – whether you want to have a little more coverage or you are looking for a more ‘cheeky’ look haha their bottoms are the best!
I have never been one for one-pieces till I wore this one from Coco Reef! It has a tummy control feature to help accentuate your figure + #FlauntYourShape ♥ Their one-pieces are honestly my favorite…the fact that I can slip into one and feel confident no matter where I am heading (even in superficial LA…models make it hard for us average folk haha :p) is always a perk!
