Boots + Street Art + Perrier

Lately, I’ve been inspired to push myself to be more creative. Creativity is something different for each person: to some it’s drawing, maybe to others it’s when they sing or others it’s their street art. I’m not a professional in any of those, but more and more I’ve been feeling myself want to be more and more creative. At this current time, my main outlet of creative expression is through clothes and photography, which is why I started and love Style Wax Poetic so much.

Which brings me to why I was particularly excited when I was approached to work on Perrier’s new campaign, Street Art By Perrier. They’ve worked with artists for 150 years and they, too, are inspired by artists and creativity around the world. If you watch Perrier’s new video you’ll see.

There are amazing artists and street art to be inspired by in Los Angeles; one of my favorite places to explore lately is on La Brea. From street art, to retail stores and one of my favorite coffee shops Graffiti, you can spend a day just walking and getting inspired. I also love that the district is known for streetwear, which is partly what inspired this look. There’s nothing like a little Perrier to keep you company on your stroll. These little cans are super chic, too.

This look to me is amazing because it’s comfortable. I’m looking the streetwear feel the boots add to any overly girly outfit. I love the unexpected, which is why I usually throw off all my outfits to have something a little different than the typical: a leather jacket instead of a blazer, a bootie instead of traditional heel or a pop of lip without my entire face being done up. They’re also adding that cool-girl chic thing that’s so LA right now.

Lace + Cozy Knits + Over-The-Knee Socks

Lace, Streetystyle, fall trends< fashion blogger

I came across this look on Pinterest and I was instantly in love. You might have seen me post this look on Instagram, but I wanted to also show you how to achieve with just a few simple purchases.

Over-the-knee socks are such a thing right now and a great look for winter. If you don’t own a pair of over-the-knee boots yet, the socks will help achieve the same look. They definitely go best with a skirt, topped with a sweater or jacket with some length. They also come in handy when lounging around the house with a oversized sweatshirt, coffee and movie in bed. Can you tell I’m in fall weekend mode?

Floral Chic

Floral dress, women's fashion, los Angeles blogger, street style, la street styleThere will always be a little edge in me. I’ll never be the girl who wears pearls everyday or is always dolled up perfectly every time you see her.  My hair gets messy after a few hours, my red lipstick sometimes gets on my teeth and my nails, that’s a never ending struggle. It’s life and I am SO okay with that. I actually think I love myself even more for that.

Floral dress, street style, women's fashion, what to wearI love this dress but not just on its own. It needs something – a leather jacket, a jean jacket, something to tie it in all together. My leather jacket is old but I still LOVE it. I get so many compliments and it’s actually just from Forever21 – crazy, right.? I don’t shop there a lot because of some of the company’s morals, but every once and a while I will grab a piece if I know it’s worth it. Like this moto leather jacket…looks pretty amazing. I do think a good leather jacket is something to invest in but if you’re not there yet, it;s OK, there are some really fantastic options. I’m also coveted this vegan one from Urban Outfitters.

I’m so happy it’s Friday and I’m looking forward to a relaxing weekend! I’m hoping to take a road trip on Sunday to find some fall leaves. Think of me if you’re somewhere with changing leaves and seasons, I miss that!

The Edit | Fall Favorites

Hey loves! I hope you enjoyed an amazing weekend and a safe Halloween. I had a relaxing weekend in San Diego visiting family and thoroughly enjoyed the weather FINALLY cooling down in Southern California. Needless to say, all it took was one day of rain and brisk air to get me craving big chunky knits, over-the-knee boots and new fall pieces. This week’s edit reflects everything I’m craving right color wise: clean simple lines like whites and greys, with mauve accents. Knits are EVERYTHING to me right now and I picked up a few pieces I can’t wait to show you in outfit posts this upcoming week. FALL FASHION is probably my favorite season – what about you?!

I’d love to know what you’re lusting after this season. Comment below or let’s chat about it on Instagram.

The Look: Leather Skirt & A Sweater

Chunky knits and leather skirtThis look is a look is a classic and a look every girl should adopt. It’s simple, chic and will be a win every time. It’s great for fall and we can actually even pull this off in the warmer weather in LA, too. Neither the sweater, or the leather skirt, will be going out of style soon so both are great investment pieces. I’m including some options below for you to browse.

Monthly Beauty Buys

BestBeautyProductsFall

There are so many products on the market and new products coming out, it’s hard to know what to buy! Does it really work? Is it worth the cost? What’s the latest products? This new series will break it down for you.

1. Ole Henriksen Ultimate Lift Eye Gel – Ole Henriksen Ultimate Lift Eye Gel refreshes and invigorates the delicate eye area for a renewed appearance. I have to say, I was gifted this to try but I will definitely be purchasing it again as I was blown away by the results. The product has aloe vera, which moisturizes and heals, and a calendula extract which softens the skin. Cucumber essence tightens pores and decongests to reduce puffiness. Eyebright extract works to constrict capillaries to brighten around the eye area while hyaluronic acid binds moisture to the skin for an instant plumping effect. I felt it working and I really think I’ve noticed a firmness. Cost $40. Rating = 10. SWP APPROVED

2. Essie Foot Scrub – Essie is the champion of nail polish, it would only make sense that they put out a full scrub, moisturizer, and oil to prepare your hands and feet before polishing. Straight from the salon, the essie spa pedicure line is designed as a hydra-resurfacing system to deliver exfoliation and moisturization for optimal results. Wash away dead skin cells and rough patches to reveal softer skin and the scent is really amazing! Rating = 9. SWP APPROVED

3. Olay Regenerist Luminous Tone Perfecting Cream – Olay Regenerist Luminous Tone Perfecting Cream is a lightly-scented, fast-absorbing moisturizer that hydrates your skin. They say over 8 weeks, its formula with a brightening complex fades the look of dark spots, age spots, sun spots and discoloration – evening your overall skin tone. I haven’t had it that long, but it does feel really nice on my skin and feels like it would smoothen out everything. Rating = 8. Cost-effective. SWP APPROVED

4. Deborah Lipman – Lately, I’m obsessed with darker nail polish because it goes with everything, especially the latest fall colors. I’m also completely against buying cheap nail polish – there’s a reason it’s only $3, it doesn’t really work – so Deborah’s line is always a good choice. SWP APPROVED

5. Supermodel Body’ Slimmer Shimmer Shape, Hydrate & Glow – Last week, I celebrated the launch of Charlotte Tilbury into Nordstrom. We walked away with a few of her products and I’ve been complete impressed. For one, the package is gorgeous! For two, they work, but some of the prices are a little steeper than most lines. This body glow was amazing, though. I love the tube squeeze and roll process so you don’t need to get your hands completely dirty. It feels really nice too! It will cost you around $65 but if you’ll use it a lot (summer dresses, the beach, pool parties, etc) than I’d say it’s definitely worth it! Rating = 9. Cost 65. SWP APPROVED

Online Sales: Oh yes, Thank You Columbus

Skirt-Street-style

Hello everyone! I have been meaning to catch up with you all week. I hope you’re all enjoying your Columbus day and hopefully had an amazing weekend! I was in SD and ended up getting injured in my alumni soccer game, so please excuse the long absence. (Many people are surprised that I played college soccer: quite the dicotomy: soccer and fashion, but it’s something that I’ll never forget :))

Anyways, back to fashion! When I shop for sales on days like these (Labor Day, Black Friday, etc), I look for pieces that I’ve been lusting over that are really expensive and marked down, therefore a really great time to buy, OR some basics that are so cheap you can’t resist. In this case, it’s the later. Forever 21 is having 50% off already marked own items, which as you can imagine, makes these pieces next to nothing! I picked out some of my favorites below – the prices you see will be an extra 50% off at checkout when you enter TAKE50. Enjoy and let me know what you find! XX
