Silver Lake Slink

Spent the past Sunday in mellow Silver Lake and I felt very out of place, but it was a good experience still. Went for a very casual look, but it seemed I should’ve dressed even more casual than I thought. Went with a fun, way less-expensive Givenchy knock-off tank and some skinnies and sunnies for the typical California casual look.

A Little Coat(ing)

FullSizeRender

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.

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!

Big ‘Ol Flannel

P1050053Can’t ever get enough of flannels!  I went back and forth with myself for awhile before buying this extremely oversized flannel, but I’m glad I did.  A no-fail way to make any outfit look not sloppy–a pair of heels.  With the size of this flannel, it can easily become sloppy but as long as the rest of the outfit is clean, the flannel acts as a great statement piece.

Winter Tropicana

P1050021I love every single piece of this outfit.  Oh.  So.  Much.  This little bit of warm weather we’re getting in February calls for a fun little tropical-inspired top from TopShop that I’ve been obsessed with ever since I saw it.  Pair it with a liquid legging and a neutral wedge lets the shirt be the focal point, and I love it all!

Pretty Valentine

Happy Valentine’s Day!  It’s a day for love and it does not mean that you must have a significant other to partake in Valentine’s Day festivities.  For the past couple of years, I’ve celebrated Valentine’s Day by getting my mom flowers to remind her I love her, and I have a significant other.  Remind your loved ones that they’re on your mind, even if I do believe that they should be reminded everyday, not just on V-Day.

Anyway, whether or not you’ll be spending the night in or out, a pretty floral with a mini skirt + a great basic black heel will never do you wrong for a lovely little holiday like this one.  Borrowed this skirt from one of my best friends and haven’t given it back yet…whoops, that’s because I love it!

A New Semester

Along with a new home came a new school, too!  Summer has come to an end and it’s back to school for most of us.  I’m getting a fresh start at the California State University at Long Beach and I’m so excited!  Here’s to a new semester and a great post to start it off with!  Can’t wait for the adventures that are still to come.

Classics

Nothing says classic better than black and white…and red, too! Everyone who’s seen these pants immediately think they look a little cow-like, but how amazing are they on? When I can’t think of anything to wear, I go for the classic black and white…it just always works. Add a pop of red whether it be a blazer or a red lip, and you’re set to go!
