Soho is one of my favorite places to stop by when in New York City! There are so many of my favorite online shops as actual retail fronts here so it makes for an exciting trip for me! Not to mention there are incredible restaurants and cute street corners to match. This is a place where I could see myself spending a lot of time if I was a resident.
Quick photo recap of one of my days in New York this past week. I went out for a work trip last week and slipped in a few explorations of the city while I was there! It’s always a great time when I visit the city and this time we stayed in lower Manhattan at the Standard East Village which was the perfect spot for great restaurants and shopping.
Adding in a little bit of a statement skirt into my latest look with this patchwork suede mini from BB Dakota. I know patchwork skirts aren’t anything new, but when they are done so right like it is here, I couldn’t help but feel drawn to styling it. I have recently been binging Friends with my husband before bed and we also visited the Warner Bros studio tour where we got to actually sit on the set!
Hey guys! I’ve been in love with statement ruffle blouses as of lately so I was excited to find this gem at H&M the other day! Luckily as I mentioned before, my sister works there so we did a little trade for makeup and this blouse was all mine! I love the subtle pattern and cut that makes this piece so unique yet able to be paired with a ton of different bottoms.

So excited to be partnering with Lulus with this super fun casual look! Thanks so much for providing these pieces! I have been wanting a great pair of skinny black overalls and when I saw these ones I knew I had to have them. They are so comfortable and really flattering on. I know I can keep these in rotation by pairing them with more statement blouses.

Ok guys, it’s been awhile since I’ve really just posted some straight forward outfit shots of me on the daily. When you get to a certain point in blogging it’s so exciting to be collaborating with brands and beginning to make your hobby feel like it could be turned into a real business! On the flip side, it also means adding on more responsibility to what was once something you just enjoyed doing.
The most perfect sweater has now come into my life. This Apres-Ski Sweater from Solo Six is something out of a 70s or 80s dream. The cut and coloring is something that I was immediately drawn to and couldn’t wait to style! Has me kind of feeling like I should be an extra in Stranger Things or something #amiright??

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.

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.
