There’s a new hot brand in town and they are here to stay. Australian brand I.AM.GIA is a favorite amongst celebrities like Kaia Gerber, Bella Hadid and Kourtney Kardashian. A lot of people are probably wondering what makes I.AM.GIA so special or, is I.AM.GIA the label worth the hype? I was introduced to the brand earlier this year and immediately fell in love with their Cobain pants in tan. Little did I know what a craze would be built behind it only a few months later. I grabbed a pair of the Cobain pants after some contemplation but they were only around $80 so I decided to go for it. Only about a week or so later did the pants completely SELL OUT.

You can’t deny that Teddy Bear Coats are the must have for winter. Last year there was a particular H&M teddy bear coat that everyone wanted their hands on. This year it’s shifted slightly to the oh so Instagramable and coveted I.AM.GIA teddy bear coat. Either way, these coats are cozy, trendy, and can be worn in a multitude of ways. Sitting at my desk all day at work, I like wearing comfortable coats I can move in when our office is super cold in the mornings. These kind of coats have a lot of give and make it easy to be able to type and maneuver around. Only downside is that I sometimes get too comfortable that I feel like falling asleep haha.
Le Labo Lotion & Le Labo Coffee Body Scrub
– I absolutely love this set the lotion smells unbelievable and basically seconds as a perfume. Since I’m somewhat “allergic” to aerosols it really works well for me.
I’m such a big believer in quality vs quantity. I don’t mean spending a large amount on one item but what I mean is that purchasing something meaningful, useful and thoughtful overall. I have a big and somewhat split up family so when the Holidays roll around I have a ton of gifts that I have to buy and in turn, a lot of gifts I end up receiving.
I was just chatting the other day with some of my coworkers talking about how when I get the urge to purchase some type of item in particular (tops, dresses, pants, bags, hats, etc) I go ALL OUT with purchasing more than one. I’m not sure if it’s my excitement from just loving some particular style of a piece but in reality it’s kind of a sad and weird obsessive behavior. Recently I was sitting down and thought, man I need some new bags, I feel like I’ve been wearing the same ones! So just like that I started jumping online looking up top handle bags. I was really inspired by the Celine Top Handle bag but alas, I’m trying to save for a house so that dream flew out the window.
Welcoming mixing prints with open arms! Well, in this case I mixed a bunch of different plaid, check, or houndstooth esq prints. I’m also thrilled to be a part of the Stuart Weitzman family and give these new Gigi Hadid Eyelove loafers a run! I received these mules a little while ago and I have to say even prior to taking photos of these I’ve already worn them twice. They are incredibly comfortable and look so flattering on the foot with it’s pointed toe that helps elongate the leg.
There’s always new trends coming into play whether it’s a particular print, style or brand. One thing I’m big on is mixing trends with staple wardrobe pieces, in this instance a silk blouse is something that never seems to go out of style. What I particularly like about this silk piece by Ravella is that it maintains a classic chic style with a super luxurious feel. I definitely feel sexy wearing this piece and I have to admit that after trying on multiple outfits featuring the blouse I actually couldn’t pick which outfit I liked best! The gold button detailing was another reason I really enjoyed this blouse, they add that little bit of ornate detailing that makes this the perfect staple. For this particular look, I paired the silk blouse with my navy blue culotte cords and a plaid coat.
Quick little outfit today that I am absolutely in love with. I got both of these pieces from Zara during the Black Friday promotion. The checkered high waisted pants are my new favorites so expect to see them in a lot of Instagram / Blog posts! I was hesitant to believe they were actually high waisted based on the website images (you can never fully trust those can you) along with Zaras reputation for mislabeling things as high waisted.
The Holidays are coming quick and with Thanksgiving already come and gone we are now looking forward to all of the fun December Holidays the world celebrates! For myself, Christmas is what I’ll be looking forward to next. With my family being relatively small and close in nature, I don’t have to worry too much about over dressing for the Holidays. My favorite way to dress for family Holiday gatherings is casual yet cute.

I’ll never stop loving trench coats. I purchased one a few years ago for a trip to San Francisco and I’ve learned a lot from that particular coat. What I have been quick to understand is that a lot of trench coats are built larger (for layering) so you have to understand how to wear it properly based on what your goals are. For us here in So Cal, we don’t need to layer as much so a thinner more flexible trench is something more appealing.
Two things that go great together, sweaters & wide leg trousers. Spent a day in the office and wanted a simple yet sophisticated look. I can definitely say this sweater is just as soft as it looks (not to mention my coworkers dog fell asleep in my arms whilst I was wearing it) and the trousers have the perfect fit that falls nicely on you and only required a slight heeled boot for myself.
