Happy Monday ♥ I am definitely having a case of the Monday Blues today…I spent this past weekend in Palm Springs to kick off my birthday week (I can’t believe I am turning 25 on Friday…a quarter of a century old…it’s all down hill from here right? :p) JK…have to look at the bright side, with older age comes wisdom, better style + class and elegance that takes years to achieve.
Anyways…while I am still 24, I love to sport casual cozy looks like this one with my winter signature essentials…a blanket scarf + OTK boots! I love when comfort + style intersect and with these boots and this scarf, that’s exactly what happens!
Don’t you just love when sunshine is beaming down on you and you are warm and toasty in your outfit? I sure do!
Happy Tuesday Loves! ♥ Sorry I’ve been MIA recently…between work + trying to get back my pep in my step from a little funk I’ve been in, I needed some time to myself and that meant a little break from blogging. Sometimes checking out + taking a little time to re-evaluate and compose yourself is totally necessary. Now I feel refreshed + better than ever! I am in the process of teaching myself how to use all of the amazing features Lightroom has to offer (this is definitely an on-going project…there is simply so much to learn) plus testing out some fun presets from Dreamy Presets (I mean how could they not be awesome when they were created by a blogger?!).
Anyways…now that I am feeling like myself again, time to break down this great fall look that I have already been living in this season. Ever since moving to LA, I have begun a love affair with Uniqlo. It’s my current go-to for simple pieces that can be dressed up or down AND the best part is that they are great quality but for an affordable price…that is my absolute FAVORITE!
One of my favorite pieces from them is this chiffon bell sleeve blouse (I love it so much I got it in multiple colors, no joke…when you find something you love…buy it in bulk…that’s my new motto haha :p)
I paired it with a great pair of medium wash skinny jeans from Target. They have really been stepping up their denim game + their styles fit me perfectly! The best part? Target.com often times has online exclusive promos for clothing + accessories…meaning you will rarelypay full price for them 😉
My newest fall shoe + accessory obsessions are right here! I have always loved bags from GiGi NY, so when they let me pick a piece from their fall line to style for the season, I got so excited! What I love about GiGi NY (other than their amazing bags) is the fact that they are headquartered + manufactured on my hometown on Long Island! Every time I wear one of their bags it reminds me of home 🙂 Sounds corny, but I love supporting brands originating from where I am from + the fact that they support me + my dreams! GiGi NY’s team always makes me smile ♥
In addition to finding the perfect fall bag, I found a great pair of shoes that I have been styling with jeans, dresses + beyond. I love a good peep toe shoe, and these tan booties are comfortable enough to wear to the office then out to happy hour without a simple complaint!
Happy Friday! I am excited for another great weekend ahead! I will be getting some good R+R plus I am hosting a fun fashion event at Marmi Shoes in El Segundo! If you are in the area you should totally pop by this Saturday from 4:30-6! Details at the bottom of this post!
Anyways, one thing I love about the weekends is catching up on the rest and ‘me‘ time I so desperately crave during the week. This is my casual gear…and here is my new favorite tea (in case you weren’t aware, I am a total tea lover)! Since moving to LA I have been slacking on the whole health + fitness game and consequently I gained a few pounds and need to get back to feeling good and fit again…so doing the 14 day Your Tea ‘Tiny Tea Tox’ was a great way to kick start a new healthy life style!The tea tastes amazing + it makes you feel full — pretty much amazing<3 You can drink it hot or cold (I drink it iced because I just can’t dig hot drinks for some reason haha) and you simply drink it 30 minutes before breakfast, 30 min before lunch + 30 min before dinner (3 times a day).
After trying it for the 14 day period I felt great and started shedding some water weight (woohoo!)Of course with having tea everyday, I needed some cute mugs to drink from so here are a few of my current favorites! Clearly ‘I Woke Up Like This‘ is my fav :p
So here is the info on the event I will be hosting tomorrow! If you are in the LA / Cali area stop by and say Hi!
I never was one for Boho Chic style to be completely honest. I find myself to be more of a preppy girly girl or ‘Charlotte York’ inspired sophisticate…but when in LA, it is practically mandatory to have one or two ‘go to‘ Boho Chic ensembles and this happens to be one of them 😉 When the temperature heats up and exploring begins…desert vibes and ‘golden hour’ (referring to the best time to take outdoor photos) make great times for new outfit inspo (who would have thought I would enjoy boho style past Coachella haha :p)
