Leather + Lace

One of my favorite new trends in fashion is lace…


Lace: it’s feminine and sweet and it’s an easy way to incorporate something delicate into your look. Lace popping up all over the internet in street style and it’s being used in completely unexpected ways. Like for example, a lace skirt with runners? Totally different and absolutely works. A lace skirt with a casual sweatshirt? Maybe my favorite so far. Check out some of my favorites on my Lace Inspiration Pinterest Board.

Sweaters + Rips

In every girl’s closet there should be a handful of cozy knit sweaters in neutrals and a variety of ripped jeans..

I’ve been in New York for the past couple days but lately back in Los Angeles I’ve been stocking up on my knits. I swear, I’d wear  cozy sweater and ripped jeans everyday if I could – it’s the simplest, chicest look and gives off a laid back “I’m not trying” vibe.

The Weekend Edit: Winter White & Silver

winter whites

I hope you’re all having an amazing weekend. It’s practically summer in LA, which I guess we sure can’t complain about, but I’m thinking winter as I’m heading out to NYC next week.

Today’s edit is perfect for winter, because I love a good winter white. I’m also becoming more and more into silver, rather than gold elements. The two together, winter white and silver, just make me over the moon.

1 // White Loose Turtle Neck Sweater – the easiest outfit this time of year is a good knit sweater, jeans (rips preferably) and a pair of cute flats. Winter white is always a chic option. I don’t think it’s necessary to pay hundreds of dollars on knits, so I’m including this amazing option for only $30. The loose turtlenecks adds an element of chic + coziness at the same time.

2 // Necklace in Crystal - I’m sure you’ve sent these necklaces everywhere but often they range in the hundreds. This one is reasonably priced.  I love the edginess of this and I love how it comes to a point at the bottom. I wear this statement necklace often, which is similar, but I really am coveting this one as well.

3 // Vita Fede Silver Bracelet – this is a great investment piece that you can throw on over a watch or layer with other bracelets. We all need a selection of great accessories because we know the low end jewelry doesn’t last.

4  // Ladies Rolex Datejust  – I love a good watch and I especially love a good men’s watch for women. The pink is super chic and perfect for Valentine’s Day! More new and used rolex options check out Swiss-Wrist.com.

5 // White Jeans with Rips – jeans are tough. Just when you feel like you have too many, you want more. Do you understand my struggle? If it were up to me, every girl would own a pair of ripped jeans in blue, white and black. They are a vital part of our closet and perfectly paired with a good knit for an easy weekend outfit. Done and done.

6 // Lunch Pail Bag – Forever21 is just on point lately. This bag is definitely a ripoff (sorry!) but for $20 I can mess with this. Coveting it in both colors to pair it with loose pants and an oversized sweater.

7 // Silver Pumps – only $32 dollars if you hurry! Wear them with any winter white look.

8 //Faux Patent Leather Flats – just purchased these yesterday and I’m in love. Only $22.90 – enjoy!

Steal vs Splurge: Over The Knee Boot

Steal vs SplurgeOver-the-knee boots are everything! They look amazing over jeans with a sweater or my favorite look: wearing them with  sweater dress. While I do adore the Stewart Weitzman boots I’m seeing on everyone, is it worth $800 dollars? I’ll let you decided. I’ve included an amazing option from Guess (on sale now) that I’m purchasing today. They have a lot of amazing markdowns right now. I love the color grey but I’m definitely in the market for a black pair, too.

Fashion Tip: if you’re going to buy over the knee boots, ensure they are form fitting to your leg and not too bunchy. That lends for a sleeker look overall.

2015: Let’s Werk

fashion-blogger-workout-wear…….NEW Workout Clothes!

Everyone’s on their fitness plan this time of year so I was excited when Sears reached out to me to partner on their amazing active-wear. Yes, we all gained a couple extra this winter, so we should take comfort in knowing that everyone’s in the same boat, BUT unfortunately we don’t. We’re our worst critics – you and I both know this. So if you don’t have motivation already, buy it, and it will come.

Workout clothes cute activewear, what to wear, fashion blogger, street style, mesh workkout wear, everlastWorking out shouldn’t be a chore; it should be something enjoyable. So start with a good outfit to make you feel great. I picked both Everlast pants and the sports bra from Sears – they have a great selection of basics. I always like to add a pop of color with my runners and mesh is my new favorite addition when finding a good workout outfit. I love that it breathes and it’s lightweight for hot days. The Everlast sports bra is super comfortable with a little extra support, which is great for us that are part of the itty bitty titty club. (Sadly, one of the first things to go when we lose weight! ugh)

I love to dance, so I’ve been starting to go to Hip-hop classes. I also love nature so hiking is my other favorite workout. Chloe and I love Runyan – great people watching. But do what feels right for you, even if it’s a walk with girlfriends. Grab a coffee and have fun walking for 45 minutes catching up about life. You’ll save the calories of happy hour and still get some good girl time in. You’ll probably forget you’re working out, too.

Oh you probably already know, I’m a sucker for a good sale. I’m not sure about you, but my shopping patterns have come in waves. I take a really good break from shopping, then I see sales like this and want to buy EVERYTHING. Danger zone.

So, this morning, I stumbled upon an amazing sale from INTERMIX… all their sale pieces are an extra 40% off. It’s a great time to buy designer pieces when they’re a marked down to this price. The thing about designer clothing is they often offer cuts/styles you can’t find everywhere, so they’ll be unique pieces if your wardrobe for time to come. I also have been really impressed by what Forever21 is putting out there lately. Like really, impressed. Their sale pieces are an extra 30% off, which makes items marked down next to nothing.

I’m including a few options that are not pictured above for you to browse them. Keep in mind that these prices don’t reflect the extra 30% off or 40% off yet. Happy shopping and enjoy your weekend. XXX

Holiday Outfit: Faux Fur

what to wear for Christmas, Faux Fur for Holiday, los Angeles Blogger, What To Wear in Los ANgeles, Winter White, Liberty Sage

If you’re stumped on what to wear to your holiday dinner or party this weekend, I have an easy fix: just add a little faux fur. I’m a HUGE fan of fur but I think it’s especially appropriate this time of year. It instantly takes your everyday dress to something a little extra special!

I love this dress by Liberty Sage. It has length so it’s perfect for work but the mesh adds texture and a complexity that your fashion friends will definitely appreciate.

If you’re needing something more, try adding some fun accessories and a bold lip. I love this color from MAC titled Candy Yum Yum. It’s bright indeed, but it’s really fun and will add a pop to your look.

I’m obsessed with this look and I’m so glad it’s finally the weather I can wear it. I’ve been wearing sweaters in 80 degree weather and let me tell you, it’s not fun. I know we should be happy but I love the seasons and fall fashion! Boots, sweaters, crisp air and warm drinks – you should all consider yourself lucky.

Oh and I have a little secret for you this post….it’s my birthday today. Any fellow Sags?! Follow me on Instagram to see how I spend my day.
