I was lucky enough to be able to travel to Paris, France this past week. Fashion capital of the world and full of beautiful architecture and history you only experience in books. While I was here for work we also had the opportunity to visit all of the best spots Paris has to offer. From the Chateau de Versailles, to the Eiffel Tower, to the Louvre and Notre Dame. It really was an incredible experience.

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.

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.
There’s nothing I enjoy more than a good set of dungarees. The best part about owning a good pair of overalls is their versatility. They really are like a pair of good jeans that you keep in your closet for any and all occasions.
Getting accustomed to this cool weather with my latest addition of coats into my wardrobe. I’m a huge fan of camel coats as the perfect everyday go-to jacket for the Winter season however I’d been lacking in one that was oversized yet still held shape.

Houndstooth &/or plaid, you had me at FALL. I’ve been loving the cold weather here in SoCal so I’m excited to add a new arsenal of coats into my wardrobe! A plaid longline coat is a fall must have and I just HAD to venture out over Black Friday weekend to grab this particular lightweight houndstooth longline coat from H&M before they all disappeared.
Feeling like I’m back to my roots with this street style inspired look. I of course am layering again, so this sheer black blouse has been in heavy rotation. I decided to go early 2000s style with a long sleeve tee layered under a fun graphic tee from Zara. While I was a big advocate for graphic tees making their way out, I’m becoming another fan of them making their way back in (things always come back faster than you think).

The art of layering is a fine one, and one that I’m constantly expanding on. I can’t get enough of this mock neck trumpet sleeve blouse from H&M that I previously wore in this post where I layered a slinky bralette on top. In this instance I’ve switched it up a bit and placed the blouse underneath the poplin shirt! I love how well these two pieces fit together and let me know this is something NOT planned.
Now that it’s November I’m so getting really excited for the coming Holidays! While the Holidays always mean busy workweeks and even busier weekends, I definitely love the feeling of begin able to plan for fun events with my family. I threw together this look the other morning and felt it was the perfect kind of look to wear to your next Holiday event!
