Nothing quite like a little off shoulder styling when the temperature heats up a bit. I’ve been defrosting ever since Fashion Week so it was a nice surprise when I took a trip down to San Diego the other day and there was a mini warm front! I love the look of an off shoulder blouse, it just adds so much femininity to an outfit. It also is nice when it’s a bit warm out and you are transitioning from day to night.
It’s my third trip out to New York for Fashion Week and it’s becoming more comfortable each and every time. I’ll admit, I love reading bloggers accounts of the event and seeing their perspectives on everything. There are definitely those who live for Fashion Week’s and those who would rather admire from afar. I can understand both sides of it and respect the fact that it’s not for everyone. My first year was a big learning process with little to no activities lined up but gave me the opportunity to learn, network and try and understand how this whole NYFW thing worked. My second trip was a lot more activity driven but again, a big learning process when it came to networking, styling looks and understanding where to stay and how to travel and schedule shows and presentations. This third year has definitely been the most relaxed, our schedules weren’t too packed and we understood that most importantly our well being was the highest priority. Making sure we ate on time, had some down time to just relax and get caught up on work and to have some fun in between! I get major anxiety so it was important for me to feel that no matter what, we were going to have a great time, capture some amazing content and not worry too much that we hit each and every show or presentation we had lined up. Here’s a little look into how each day went plus some images of what I was wearing and most importantly a video below that captures a ton of the shows I attended! Also a big thanks to Arlo Soho for being our home away from home and providing a really great location to be able to stop into in between shows and presentations. Hope you enjoy

H&M is my one stop shop for a cool, edgy, on trend outfit in a pinch. Not only do they have reasonable prices but all of the styles bring a lot more to the table than traditional fast fashion stores. I picked up this pair of denim to help elevate my black denim assortment in my closet in partnership with H&M.
I took a really fun trip this past weekend to Las Vegas, NV and couldn’t wait to do some exploring. Luckily I brought my new Expert Booties with me from Stuart Weitzman that were a dream to cruise around in. I was happy to see that the Downtown Las Vegas area was really getting some cool upgrades while keeping it’s traditional vintage feel.
Nothing beats a clean crisp all white outfit with a little punch of color! I received this white double breasted blazer from River Island and knew immediately that I wanted to create an all white look with it. I recently got these vintage Levi’s hemmed so I couldn’t wait to style an outfit with them for the blog.
As you guys have seen, ASOS is one of my one stop shops for the coolest brands and just pieces overall. It’s a great alternative to traditional fast fashion spots because they not only house their own internal brands but also a ton of other cool up and coming designers. I remember a few years back when I was first introduced to House of Sunny I really wished they were housed at a retailer that had more reasonable US shipping rates. Low and behold only a year or so later they popped up on ASOS! I’ve been introduced to a ton of European designers I probably wouldn’t have known prior.
Quick outfit recap post today with the weather getting down to the chilly 40s in the evenings, never thought it would actually come to this! I suppose it’s a good thing though that we are finally getting to experience “winter” here in Southern California. There has been so much going on in life right now it’s kind of funny how things go. To update you all, we are currently searching for our first home to purchase!
Lavender Spring 2018 Color Trend has us all transitioning from millennial pink to another soft feminine tone that is somewhat unexpected. In the days of having super minimal colored pieces we are now stepping into a world of colored accent pieces and I am all about it. Sometimes color can be something we fear but it’s always worth a shot to me. I’ve constantly heard this time and time again “oh that looks so great on you but that wouldn’t work for me”. Now granted, sometimes that is true, not everything fits everyone the same way nor do you feel the same kind of confidence that someone else might in that same piece. What I don’t respect is when someone uses that as an excuse to not even bother trying!
As you guys have seen, I am absolutely nuts for colored sweaters and I’m expanding my collection with this green chunky knit & plaid trousers combination. I love the look of this bright green sweater alongside a print like plaid, not only because I just love plaid, but because I’ve been wearing it as a neutral lately. I had one hectic weekend running around a convention in Pasadena so it was nice to stop by Urth Caffe before the chaos ensued and snap a few photos nearby.
I always tend to have trouble finding cute dresses that I can find multi use for. Usually it has to be a plain somewhat flowy dress for me to reuse it constantly. That has completely shifted with the introduction of this striped blazer dress by Vetiver Collection. The double breasted front and mini length make this the perfect balanced piece. I also really love how the dress looks layered with a longline coat or any coat with a lapel.
