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!

Christmas 2k14

Had such a great couple days spending time with family and friends celebrating the best season of the year! Love this simple casual outfit for Christmas Day at my brother’s.

Doubled Jacket

My gosh, the fall semester is finally over and I’ve about just relaxed for this past week due to being burnt out on final schoolwork. Cannot WAIT until graduation in May! But now that I’m on winter break, I must and will try to post more consistently!

I’ve had this grey jacket for probably about five years and haven’t worn it in just about that long. I’m usually not a jacket type of person, but lately I’ve really come to terms with what a jacket does for an outfit. Decided to take this one out from the back of my closet and rediscovered why I bought it in the first place! It was an easy pull-together for a casual daytime outfit and a perfect jacket to keep me cute and warm for a night out.

Top-Knot Sweater Weather

P1050588

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

P1050586

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! 🙂

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.

This week, I started a new adventure at Rebecca Taylor at Fashion Island! It was a successful one, I might add. I still feel uncomfortable and awkward, but that’s all a part of change. I think something great will come of this! A little perk of the job is getting an allowance to spend on pretty clothes to wear to work. So here’s a little peak of my favorite outfit thus far compliments of Rebecca Taylor. So excited for what’s to come!

These silk draw-string pants are amazingly comfortable and versatile. Definitely will be wearing these to death! I’ve become obsessed with them. And I’m so excited to have rediscovered the Tiffany & Co. initial necklace my sister got for me for one of my birthdays. Always been one of my favorites and now that I can really only sport dainty little things to work, it’s perfect for the job.

Went to the Packing District this week with my sister to try some new places to eat for Dining With Dre. Opted for a more casual outfit since the Packing House is definitely a casual place, but still a bit trendier than most cafeterias. Kept cool in a simple tank and a flannel worn as a skirt (inspired by my bff, Naazak) for the warm summer evening. Definitely want to go back to explore and try more places! Dining With Dre: Packing House review is coming this week!
