Happy Monday! Back to the daily grind…Kinda wishing I can stay in bed today but gotta do what ya gotta do 😉 I spent my weekend furniture shopping for my new apartment (I found the P E R F E C T mirror for morning SnapChat selfies :p (If you don’t follow me on SnapChat you totally should — MissyOnMadison)
One thing I love about working in LA, is that work wear style is super casual…so lace up flats and animal print = Y E S! I love a LBD like this one because it can be dressed up or down…so for a casual work day, I wear a denim jacket or cardigan with it and for dinner I wear a blazer over it.
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…
All Wrapped Up…kinda like a Christmas present right? 😉 What can I say…I am the gift that keeps on giving haha (jk that’s just what my family says about me when I drive them all crazy…only a few days away from heading to NY to see them + Charlie — literally can’t wait to cuddle with him for an entire week!) Anyways, back to the whole ‘wrap‘ idea…I was never one for wrap dresses (although I do love DVF, wrap dresses being her signature) but after slipping into this one (similar)…I have officially fallen in love!
On a side note, I realized I keep doing the same pose every time I shoot new outfits (#oops)…Maybe it’s just my ‘natural’ instinct to play with my hair, I don’t know, but maybe this can be one of my New Year’s Resolutions…switch up poses when shooting blog pictures 😉 Totally normal right? Haha
Another New Year’s Resolution? Wear more Wrap Dresses! Duh! Here are a few of my favorites:
Maroon aka my new favorite color for fall (besides blue…pretty apparent with how often I wear it :p). Since Thanksgiving is this week, it’s about time I take a break from my love of neon and embrace the darker hues…along with that, embrace booties, sweaters (like this cozy Uniqlo one) + floppy hats. So what’s my ‘statement‘ item in this festive look (totally holiday dinner appropriate)…this fab Vera Bradley leopard satchel.My booties are from NYLA, but I found a similar pair on sale from Kohls (+ even more on sale during Black Friday sales) here! These are great to wear to Thanksgiving dinner (or if you are like my friends, Thanksgiving Eve…girl’s night out what what!)
Fun prints are always ‘in‘ no matter what the season…this leopard satchel from Vera Bradley is the perfect fall handbag and will make a statement at your Thanksgiving gathering! Plus it comes in a variety of prints and colors!
Happy M o n d a y! I hope you all had a great weekend, I know I sure did! I actually hung out by my office on Saturday in El Segundo when I visited The Point, this awesome outdoor mall that is filled with great stores, one of which is Marmi Shoes, where I got these adorablegray pumps (perfect for fall)!
The event was an after party for a huge charity fashion show The Point was hostessing which Marmi participated in, the store was even giving 10% of the proceeds to charity as well (Shop for a cause? Yup I am in :p). It was a lot of fun and I am pretty obsessed with a bunch of their shoes + handbags for fall <3 Like the booties I am wearing above…how cute are they? 🙂Now let’s break down the outfit I wore to the event — My outfit is the perfect look for an ‘LA’ fall, you know since the weather here is far from cold :p I L O V E this pink moto jacket from Kohls (on sale now)…it’s lightweight so it is a great transition piece for season to season and for cool LA nights. I paired it with this polka dot skirt (I love a great print) and this white crop top.I love to mix prints so polka dots + leopard print seemed like a perfect match to me! This Vera Bradley satchel is going to be my signature all season long!
