All Frills Cozy Ruffled Sweater – Akira | Cropped Knit Dungarees – Zara | Casse Studded Wooden Heel Boot – Jessica Buurman | Mini Bucket Bag – Hieleven | Gucci Logo Belt – Gucci
Went for a full blown knit look this past weekend with this cool weather front that came into Southern California. I was out in Pasadena this past weekend working a convention for my day job. If you aren’t familiar with it, IMATS is a makeup trade show and let me tell you that it’s INSANE. Insanely busy, yet fun and rewarding. The convention is also in Pasadena so there was opportunity to explore when we were allotted some time. I threw together this look after receiving this amazing ruffled sleeve sweater from Akira. I had been meaning to bring out this knit jumpsuit for another look but hadn’t found the perfect blouse to pair it with. I love how the textures in the sweater help this look POP and not to mention the entire look is knit, so it was super warm and comfortable. I also have been wearing these block heel boots constantly so adding those details made this look complete, oh and of course a little Gucci belt action. I really love Pasadena, it’s the perfect small downtown area with good shopping, food and coffee which is my ideal vacation spot.
Double Breasted Striped Blazer – H&M | Striped Pant – H&M | Bad Habits Tee – TopShop | Lace Up Mid Pointed Toe Ankle Boot – ASOS
Suiting up today in this matching suit set from H&M! My awesome sister got this for me this year for Christmas and I’ve been itching to wear it since! I also recently updated my hair with a little bang action. It definitely had me feeling refreshed and new for the year! It also prompted me to wear this outfit immediately afterwards.
Happy almost 2017! I’ve been reflecting a lot during the Holidays as well as stressing. A New Year always feels good, refreshing, and a great time to get a new start however the end of a year can seem overwhelming, stressful, and seems like time is running out to get everything you need finished. I’ve been blogging since 2012 and it’s been a whirlwind. This year I saw real growth on all fronts of my blog plus, I achieved my major 2016 goals, attending Fashion Week and traveling more. With trips to San Francisco, New York, Florida, and Big Bear, it really was a year to look back on with pride.
Silk V-Neck Slip Dress – Grana | Mesh Shirt – Zara | Lace Up Point Mid Heeled Ankle boot – ASOS | Faux Fur Teddy Bear Jacket – H&M | Gucci Logo Belt – Neiman Marcus | Elise Ring Tote Bag – Jessica Buurman
Holiday’s aren’t over quite yet! I’m bringing a few different New Years inspirational looks as we head into 2017. Grana as I’ve mentioned before is one of my favorite clothing brands, their simplistic take on wardrobe essentials with optimal quality is something everyone should take into their wardrobe. I’ve paired one of their stunning silk slip dresses in red with a mesh long sleeve tee and some killer patent leather lace up mid heeled ankle boots.
Getting in the Holiday spirit with pops of red silk thanks to Grana. My favorite go-to for basics, their silk collection has got me on one. I’ve already featured one of their silk slip dresses and fell in love. I’ve been absolutely drawn to red lately with accessories and clothing pieces so when this deep red camisole came into my life I knew I had to style it for the Holidays!
I’ve been on the hunt for a great cropped hoodie to add to my athleisure line of my closet and low and behold my amazing friend Susan at Corinne Collection came out with the softest and cutest one yet! I love the unique neckline on top of the olive tones which are a HUGE color for me this winter!
Checking in with more Holiday attire featuring this gorgeous emerald green lace up velvet bodysuit. I decided to throw on a pair of high waisted wide leg trousers for a nice balance and a look you can wear to an office party event or to your Holiday family dinner. I really love having a comfortable yet edgy look that really plays into the roots of my style.
Seeing stars with this Holiday inspired look! Also feeling slightly like Coraline for those who know, you know. I absolutely have fallen in love with Pure Cashmere, an incredible brand found on Blancsom that has incredibly soft lightweight cashmere sweaters and coats that are so easy to wear with everything in my wardrobe.
Who else is guilty of last minute Holiday shopping? I definitely am. With so many other things going on in life, it can be difficult to grab everything you need. When in doubt however, there’s always Amazon Prime! While Amazon can be a black hole of literally any and EVERYTHING, I’ve curated a few favorites for those picky shoppers you might experience. A mix of high and low end pieces that are a great generic gift for your loved ones!
I had a very peaceful weekend up in Big Bear with my husband with amazing accommodations by the Noon Lodge at Mallard Bay. I was immediately drawn to this lodge after countless hours of searching travel sites I found this quaint and cute little lodge.
