Can ya'll believe Christmas is about 10 days away!?
 
I'm soooo excited, Christmas is my absolute favorite !  The magic for me, is in everything that goes along with planning for it. However, there is still lots to do (surprise, I procrastinate on everything).  With the countdown to Christmas the pressure is really on to get everything done. First on my list this week, is finishing some gift shopping and baking.....a full belly always makes me more prepared to take on any task.
 
Today's outfit is a cute twist on the "Christmas sweater" thing.  I always look out for unique prints and this year these tiny reindeer just stole my heart. Can you hear those sleigh bells jingling... ring-ting-tingling too.....
 
Christmas sweater... check!
 
Have you finished your holiday shopping!?

Red Plaid Means Holidays

Top- Velvet Heart c/o | Skirt - old (similar here ) | Hat- H&M (identical here) | Boots- ShoeMint (old, similar here) | Necklace - Accessory Concierge c/o | Watch- Michael Kors | Ring- ILY Couture |
 
Red plaid can only mean one thing.... the Holidays. I am still in shock that it is now December. However, I am eagerly awaiting the arrival of Christmas and the New Year.
 
I love love LOVE the holiday season because of all the wonderful things that come along with it... the food, holiday music, holiday smells, fuzzy socks, the weather, holiday movies, extra shopping, wrapping paper, and all the decorative lights. The list could really go on forever.
 
This last month of the year is pure bliss... and comes and goes so quickly ( as all great things do). It is so hard to truly enjoy a moment with life happening at full speed. The few days left of the year I plan to do all Holiday things...drink all the seasonal coffee drink at Starbucks, listen to the holiday songs radio station, get a real Christmas tree, make cookies, make pie, make more cookies and relax with a cup of hot chocolate. (Oh look another list of things to do, I guess I like making lists this time of year).
 
I hope your season is full of Jolly and Merry !

So you thought life was hard...and then from the heavens a beautiful print that is so easy to wear. (Haha, but seriously how cute is this matching print!?) Sometimes match matchy outfits just make sense- No fuss. Same colors, same print... yes! I like when getting dressed is easy... less thinking... umm yes I like that. I am completely obsessed with the combo... I mean can you ever go wrong with black and white?   
 
If you haven't checked out JUNIEblake, you really must stop, drop, and roll on over there- Now! I love their modest fashion forward clothing, it just makes sense for my everyday. Modest clothing is multi-functional... it can be worn to work, dressed up to go out, or worn with layers for a casual look.
 
JUNIEblake is so awesome, that they are offering my readers a 10% off discount. Use code  <SOTO245678> at check... and treat your self!!

Mermaid Halloween

Thursday, October 30, 2014



It's that time of year again. When leaves start to change color and slowly start to fall. When days blur into short memories of holiday plans. When the air is filled with smells of delicious food. And all you feel is anticipation for all the beautiful festivities to come...
 
This month has been the beginning of my favorite time of year... the holidays. And it culminates with my favorite Holiday. Halloween is like the first kickoff of a football game- it sets all the excitement in motion.
 
I particularly love all the creativity that comes along with planning for this day. I almost always make my costume, I just love to have my own unique version of a typical character.

This year I am teaming up with Shabby Apple to share a simple way to create a costume by getting a little creative. When I saw this skirt I instantly thought fish scales... so mermaid was obviously going to be my calling. To make the costume more "mermaid-y" I made a DIY headband (because let's be honest... what's a mermaid without seashells). The headband was a fun project my sister and I created a couple days ago. We glued shells on a mesh fabric, added pearls, rhinestones, topped it off with  a glitter top coat and set the headpiece on a stretchy headband. And Viola! Halloween Ready-To-Wear!

Are you dressing up this year?!

Happy Halloween everyone! Be safe and have lots of fun!!

Chambray Love

Friday, October 17, 2014


Top- Loft (on Sale!) | Pants- old, similar here, love these | Heels- Shoe Dazzle | Necklace- Purple Peridot c/o | Watch- Michael Kors | Bag- Rebecca Minkoff |
 
Happy Friday everyone! I am so excited it finally the feakin' weekend!!
 
I am so excited the holiday season is upon us! I love the feeling of the holidays...I love decorating, baking, and enjoying all the little things that come with the holiday season. This year I am determined to make the most of it, so I plan on taking advantage of all things holiday. So this weekend I will be peeping for Halloween: making pumpkin pie, costume shopping, and watching Halloween-y movies. TGIF!
 
Today I am sharing a look that has one of my latest obsessions- this tiny heart print Chambrays. Chambrays tops are a must in everyone's closet, they are my absolute favorite! Denim in general is so effortless to wear. It pretty much goes with everything! As of lately, I have really gravitated towed the Chambrays tops, tops with trim, different washes, or some with prints (like this one). Since it is still relatively warm in SoCal I like that Chambrays tops can be the perfect transitional piece for Fall weather. The past few days have cooled down some, so I was able to wear my leather Skinnies and this top. I can't wait, however, to wear this under sweaters and to finally be able to layer layer layer!

Everyday Pink

Wednesday, October 15, 2014

Top-Velvet Heart c/o | Jeans - Paige Denim  | Flats- DV by Dolce Vita (old, similar here) | Necklace- Bip and Bop c/o | Bracelets- Itchelita Jewelry c/o | Watch- Michael Kors |
 
Happy Wednesday everyone!
 
Today I am sharing my everyday go-to look. When I am running from one place to another I like to be comfortable. So ripped jeans and a comfy top is the perfect combo for me.This outfit is really how I look most days, I wear lots of color and carry a large tote to carry all my junk to get me through the day.
 
 I am particularly in love with this top because of the beautiful dusty pink color. This shade of pink is the perfect transition from summer brights to warm fall tones! The dusty color is almost like a neutral pink ( if that can even be possible, pink as a neutral?). I have worn this shirt so much since I have gotten it, I think its appropriate for everything! Call me crazy but to make it work appropriate I paired it with a black pencil skirt and black flats.... and bamm! From day to work in 2.5 seconds!
