Happy Monday!!

So just before the New Year we had the chance to go up and visit Big Bear here in California. It's such a short drive and it feels like a completely new place. It had actually snowed the day prior so all the snow was fresh and powdery. Walking on soft snow is such an awesome feeling (like popping bubble wrap-weird I know). 
















Some of my favorite backpacks are rounded up below.

Neutral Essentials For Winter

Sunday, January 15, 2017

*Click to SHOP



So lately I've been crushing on neutral layers. Light hues are so refreshing and feminine- especially when the weather can be so gloomy. I love a crisp clean feeling outfit that is easy to pair together. I especially love that all of these items will be perfect to transition into Spring.


1. Lace Up Sandals
I have these in black and I am loving them in this lighter color; it reminds me of a chai latte. The chunky heel on this shoe is my favorite because it is so comfortable and I love the casual vibes of a this heeled sandal.

2. Statement Earrings
I love this gold statement pair of stunners. It almost reminds me of feathers...even though it is all metal and jewels.

3. White Fringe Jeans
I adore white jeans- I think they are the ultimate closet staple. The fringe along this pair of jeans is just too cute and they would be perfect later for Spring as well.

4. Knit Sleeveless Sweater
This is a cute knit design that is great to layer with other pieces. In So-Cal the weather can be so finicky and layers are key.

5. Neutral Colored Leather Jacket
I think this is as essential as black leather jacket. This is also a classic silhouette that is a timeless piece to keep in your closet.

6. Printed Crossbody Handbag
I love the neutral print on this bag and the studded detailing. This is a bag that is currently on my wishlist and is making me very excited for Spring.

Winter Blues: Flowy Maxi Dress and Leather Jacket

Friday, January 13, 2017

Happy Friday!! It's finally the weekend!

So it's been raining...endlessly. And, I really wish the weather would allow for more outfits like the one I am sharing today. I am not a cold weather person. I need sunshine!

Today I am sharing a look that would be great for date night or for a Winter wedding. I searched and searched for the best jacket to wear with a formal dress...or with a formal-ish dress. I kept stumbling on cute leather jackets that add edge to any dress (and don't hide the dress like other large coats). I decided on this style leather jacket because of the cut and the detailing is more feminine compared to other moto leather jackets. That being said, I thinks it's important to invest in pieces that are outfit staples... like a classic leather jacket. They come in handy and are perfect to stay warm in the Winter (at least in So-Cal cold temps). 

Usually for Winter I avoid dresses because I hate being cold...I'm really a baby about cold weather. However, dressing up for a date night out, special occasion dinners or events does come up. Maxi dresses are my favorite during winter for two reasons: 1.They are long, thus warmer & 2.They transition so well for Spring.  I love this striped maxi dress that can easily be dressed up and down (and is under $50) and this flowy printed dress that is similar to this blue maxi dress.
