A Few Reasons Why

Just because its wintertime, doesn’t mean you can’t look cute. Sometimes it’s easier to throw on some sweatpants and t-shirt because let’s face it, when it’s cold and dreary outside, all you want is to feel comfortable and warm. But that is possible, all it takes is a little bit of planning. What motivates you to look your best everyday? Comment below, I would love to hear about it. I know I have a much better day when I am put together and wearing something cute. So grab your favorite knee high boots and a warm sweater dress like this one from Fashion Nova, and begin your day of right.

A few reasons why it’s important to dress nice…

1. Life is short. Looking your best =feeling your best and that goes for anyone. Taking care of yourself means you love yourself, and that’s extremely important. No one will take better care of YOU, than YOU.

2. Fashion is a chance to express your inner beauty. Why hold yourself back? Show the world what you have to offer.

3. You ARE beautiful. Why conceal it?

4. You never know who you will run into. I’m not saying you have to wear your fanciest dress, or have a pound of makeup on your face, a cute outfit and put together hair is always pleasant. Be yourself and follow your own standards.

Here are a few reasons I’m obsessed-with this dress. First of all its very form fitting which I prefer when choosing clothing. The fabric is stretchy and non constricting which is great, I feel like I am wearing a second skin. The color is light and easy to accessorize. And lastly the dress is extremely soft. I feel wintertime is a season where wearing soft, comfortable clothes is key. I hate waking up and having to overthink what I will wear that day. So having a few warm dresses makes my life much simpler.

My boots are from Nordstrom Rack. I really love wearing knee high boots because I can combine them with dresses, jeans or shorts. These are by Kenneth Cole and I love the slits at the back giving it an edge. Usually whenever I buy knee highs, I always have a problem with the tops sliding down. But these are excellent in staying up on my thighs.

Since the weather has been on and off here in LA, one day its cold and the next extremely warm, I try and purchase clothing that can be used for a variety of seasons, and in case it is cold, you can always throw on a jacket and you’ll be good to go.

Winter Look

Happy December!

Who else loves this time of the year? The weather is finally crisp and cool, the leaves are changing color, and now is the perfect time for hot chocolate and holiday shopping. With that being said, it is officially Sweater Weather. My current favorite are the cowl neck sweaters and here is why…

1. They cover my neck completely so I don’t need to wear a scarf, although scarves are probably my favorite accessory so I don’t mind it at all.

2. They are thick and warm, without the constricted feeling as turtlenecks tend to do.

3. You can pair them up with almost anything, whether you are wearing jeans or a miniskirt, you will look put together while staying warm at the same time.

This particular cowl neck is currently my favorite. It is super soft and does not have the scratchy feeling some sweaters have. But what I love the most about it, is the slit in the back and the ribbons 🎀 lacing the sweater together in the back. It gives the look a bit more dimension and femininity. The color is a light grey with black ribbons in the back. I combined the sweater with a pair of dark wash jeans and booties for a casual look.

Summer-Sault Into Fall

Summer may be over, but it is still extremely warm here in Southern California. The only down side of living here is not being able to experience all four seasons. But the bright side is that the closer we get to winter time, the cooler the weather especially in the evenings. I can finally pull out my warm clothes, I have been dying to wear this warm overall dress which I purchased a few years ago in a small boutique store. I have seen similar styles in stores like Forever 21 and H&M as well. This dress is comfortable and casual yet still looks put together. I decided to wear it two different ways because it’s not overly heavy to wear during the warmer months. The first look I paired a pair of suede brown Vince Camuto lace-up sandals which I purchased at Nordstrom. The dress didn’t come with a belt, but I loved the cinched look at the waist so I added a belt that I previously owned. It is a very simple brown belt. My necklace is a choker like design made in a deep purple and green color glass from H&M. I thought it tied the look together very well.

Hello everyone,

Today I wanted to share with you my favorite go to outfit for a casual day. We all know jeans are super versatile and fun, my favorite are these from Cotton On. They are extremely comfortable and form fitting, with  various kinds of styles. I combined them with this cute top from Forever 21 and a pair of white Stan Smiths. I love this outfit because I can still look put together and comfortable while running errands with minimum effort.

Don’t Be Afraid, Be Bold

 When I saw this fiery, floral crop top I just knew I had to have it. Bold and beautiful, this shirt is the perfect statement piece. Worn together with a pair of my favorite jeans and my Sam Edelman sandals I feel chic with a touch of bohemian vibes.

The jeans I am currently wearing are from the store Cotton On. I am obsessed with their bottoms because they are very form fitting. Sometimes it is hard find a pair of jeans that flatter my shape. (Jean shopping is definitely a bit stressful sometimes ;)).

My shoes are a pair of dark orange Sam Edelman sandals which I purchased at Nordstrom Rack. I love detailing, whether it is on shoes or clothes and the diamond-shaped silver pins immediately drew my attention. The fact that they are super soft and comfortable to walk in sealed the deal. They were mine for the taking.  On my wrist I am wearing an assortment of multi-colored bangles. I purchased these at Forever 21. The choker around my neck is a dark brown and was purchased at h&m.

I added a thin gold chain around my waist to give my waist a bit of glitz.

Why Every Woman Should Own a Bodysuit

Bodysuits have become a necessity. A versatile item that can be mixed and matched, dressed up or down. 

Here are 3 reasons bodysuits are worth the investment. 

  1. Convenience: A bodysuit can dressed up or down. Wear with a pair of jeans and sandals when going out for lunch as I am here or dress it up with a skirt and pumps for a night out on the town.

2. Sleek and Classy Look: Isn’t it frustrating when you try to maintain a sleek look but your shirt bulges at the waist giving your outfit an unflattering bulky appearance. I love not having to pull my shirt down every five minutes. Put it on, secure the bottom and you are done for the rest of the evening. No need to adjust anything.

3. They aren’t going anywhere anytime soon: Face it, A-line figure looks are always in.  This look is versatile enough to wear anywhere, whether in your home town or if you go traveling out of the country. The best part is, bodysuits do not take much room in your suitcase, because it is so easy to roll them up without the fear of wrinkles.

Oh My, Lace

This season has definitely been on the wet side, and although I love rain, I have been missing the warm sunny days characteristic of California. Somehow I feel most productive when the sun is shining and the birds are singing. Amid that, I miss wearing summer dresses. Having purchased this particular dress (Crisscross-Back Hollow Out Lace Up Dress) a few months ago, I have been dying to wear it out. And finally the day came. It was in the high seventies and I told myself, today is the day.

I purchased this dress on a website called Romwe.com and although I am usually very skeptical about buying clothing online, (I like to try it on first and make sure it fits), I decided to give it a go. To my delight, all the items I purchased were perfect. Not only were they inexpensive, this dress was only US $16.41, but they arrived fairly quickly, within a month. This dress is on the shorter side, but very comfortable with a back zipper and halter spaghetti straps that tie together mid back. The fabric is made out of cotton blends, therefore perfect for warm, summer days.

What caught my attention about this dress was the detailing. The section at the waist is embroidered with pink flowers circling the waist. Along the front and the back of the dress the flowers are intricately woven on, portraying a very soft and feminine look. The dress is a pastel pink and I wasn’t sure if it would stay warm for the duration of the day, so I layered it with my washed out YMI denim jacket. For shoes, I wore a pair of grey suede Via Spiga sandals (www.viaspiga.com).  I decided to keep it simple with accessories, wearing a pair of golden hoop earrings with pastel beads attached to them, and a light-colored bracelet, both of which I purchased at Claire’s (www.claires.com), an accessory store usually found in shopping malls here in California.

I highly recommend Romwe.com for cute, well made pieces. Let me know what favorite online stores you have in the comments below! I would love to chat. Have a lovely weekend! XOXOXOXOXOXO
