Sunshine + Clear Skies…perks of Winter in LA! I have gotten so accustomed to LA life that I can’t even imagine moving back to NY and dealing with the cold temps (especially after seeing all of my friends’ Facebook status talking about how many layers they need to wear just to step out the door…not to mention the blizzardwarnings, road closures and the un-glamorous digging your car out of the snow photos). Yup, I think LA is the place for me…sunshine, the ability to wear short sleeves in the winter + I get to wear white pumps like these without the fear of a slushy sidewalk ruining them :p The perks seem pretty endless…
Even in NY I was obsessed with leather leggings…especially these ones from HUE! They are sexy, comfortable and keep me just the right amount of warm for those chilly days in LA (which are rare)!
Happy T B T! Clearly I am doing ‘Winter‘ cleaning when it comes to my iPhoto Library because I found this shoot from back in October and realized I had never shared it! A little winter white with my favorite skinny jeans + my favorite cozy blanket scarf (aka the most popular scarf on Pinterest)? Too goodnot to share!
What’s crazy is seeing how different I look since these were taken! Fun Fact, since October I have lost over 25 pounds…I feel like I am back to myself again after gaining 20 pounds since moving to LA (what can I say…In-N-Out is addictive :p) But I am back on track and happy to look back at these photos to see how far I’ve come 😉
My look is simple — C O Z Y to the M A X! Blanket Scarves have been my obsession since September (if you missed my post, some of my favorites are HERE) and they continue to be my easy go-to every morning! This maroon floppy hat has also been a fall into winter favorite of mine.
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…
Ok, yes…I am making a fashion ‘faux pas‘ today by wearing white in the dead of winter…especially with a light wash chambray shirt (gasp) I am getting a littlecrazy…what can I say 😉 I simply LOVE white jeans and pairing it with this light wash chambray shirt makes for the perfect combo for a Friday night. Whether it’s heading to the movies, the bar or even dinner…I love a great casual look that isn’t ‘plain’ or ‘sloppy’ looking…I call this…dressed up yet dressed down.My white jeans are from Old Navy but Charlotte Russe has great ones (which I actually ordered whilst I was writing this post haha) for under $30here. My light wash chambray shirt was an H&M clearance find forever ago (PS a little secret about this shirt…it constantly has to be steamed but I kinda refuse to do so…oops…just adds to it’s ‘casual’ vibe).So this Gucci ‘Soho Tote’ is actually my mom’s which she so kindly let’s me borrow from time to time…although I have my new Gucci ‘Soho Work Tote‘ that I’ve worn before (if you missed it I wore it here) I still have a thing for this bag as well #GucciAddict #SavingForAnother (#SorryNotSorry)!Anytime I wear white pants I feel it is almost necessary to go with a nude shoe and since we are trying to make a chambray top and white jeans a bit ‘dressy‘, why not pair the look with nude suede open toe booties like these ones from Nine West.Now don’t judge me but I actually ended up coincidentally wearing this look tonight (I am currently writing this post at 1am…and I know I will regret this in the morning but oh well) I went out, I lived a little and I worewhite…| Click To Shop My Look |
