Chaos before the rain

Typical Monday yesterday starting out the day with my PR internship at Shout Public Relations in Orange County. Managed to squeeze in a few shots of my outfit for the day before running off to work at Fashion Island as a newly-promoted manager at Rebecca Taylor. Crazy and hectic Monday as usual, but I’m getting accustomed and am excited for what’s ahead!

Top-Knot Sweater Weather


This is my favorite new sweater and of course it’s Free People. They just get it right. Almost every time. I love that this sweater is enough of an outfit on its own and I can just throw my hair up in a bun, especially in this rainy weather (happens so often!) and it still looks put-together. And my new favorite pumps–leopard! Yay. Dolce Vita. Always getting it right.

A (Special) Day for Thanks


Although Christmas is my favorite holiday, Thanksgiving really kicks off the true holiday season. This year, my sister and brother-in-law are hosting our traditional Thanksgiving feast at their place in Oxnard so I’ve been here for a couple days. It’s nice to get away for a little bit and just spend some (kind of) relaxing time with family. We’re a pretty casual family when it comes to holidays, so I opted for a new TopShop t-shirt style dress since I’m not much of a pretty-dress girl anyway and a boyfriend blazer that keeps me nice and warm in the cold Oxnard weather.

This year, I’m especially thankful for my friends and family who have been there for me no matter what and thankful that I have a job and am healthy! Happy Thanksgiving everybody and remember to thankful everyday! 🙂

A Little Coat(ing)


For some unknown reason, I usually don’t like wearing or buying coats. Maybe it’s the SoCal girl in me, but this season I’ve had my eye on several coats, this one included. Love this baggy boyfriend look. Can’t wait for it to get a little chillier to pair this with a big flannel scarf.

Extremely Casual Friday

A day off of work calls for day for relax, right?  Not necessarily, most of my days off are filled with homework and errands, but it’s not an excuse to dress like a slob. It’s still totally possible to be extremely casual and put-together just to run errands and have an off-day.

Maid of Honor Duties: Bridal Shower

DSC00648Since I’m my sister’s Maid of Honor for her rapidly-approaching wedding in May, my mom and I had the task of planning and hosting her bridal shower.  It turned out beautiful and a success!

With her wedding being in the spring, her color scheme includes a lot of corals, pinks and oranges which we also used as the theme of her bridal shower.  My mom and I spent hours planning and setting up before the guests showed up for the main event, and here are some photos of the set up and the bride-to-be!

Fun & Flirty Friday

Had plans to lay poolside with my best friend and decided to wear a feminine little tunic/dress (doubled as a pool cover-up!) with my brand new distressed denim vest for a fun, flirty feel!  As much as I don’t usually wear dresses or anything extremely girly, I have been obsessed with this tunic that I decided to double as a dress for the day.  It’s so light and airy, perfect for the hot weather!

A Polished Boyfriend…Jean

Boyfriend jeans have become a staple piece in my wardrobe over the past several months and it’s almost sad how often I wear them…I love pairing a boyfriend jean with a polished pump because not only does it add a little height to me, but it makes the boyfriend jean not look as “sloppy” as it can borderline look from time to time.

Spent the day with my mom and sister apartment hunting, and I love the casual yet still a bit polished look of this boyfriend jean and a nice high heel.  Brought in the fishtail braid too because I was a little too lazy to do anything else with my hair, and hey–I love it!
