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.
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!
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.
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.

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.
I had the pleasure of being introduced to a new eco friendly clothing brand called Siizu. I love when a brand has a clear vision along with something they stand behind so working alongside Siizu to style these pieces was something I really enjoyed doing. Siizu’s philosophy is simple, they design high quality apparel made with sustainable manufacturing practices directly to the consumer at an affordable price point. Fabrics are 100% organic and eco-friendly throughout their entire line of clothing. Designers are conscious of waste and create designs and patterns to utilize an entire fabrics potential creating minimal waste.
