Fall In Ivory

Its official! Fall is here and I know many of you are excited to be bringing out your boots, knits, and pants. Although here in L.A. it never really gets too cold, we still indulge in fall/winter fashion by wearing those items with other lighter items. 

I've been meaning to post this dress for a bit, but I really wanted to pair it with these combat boots and knit socks. So I had to wait for the temperatures to drop a little. One of the reasons I found this dress so appealing is the way it gracefully drapes down my body. The cut is absolutely complementing to the figure. Other key notes about this dress are the small details, like the bustier like top, and sweet lace. I'll have one in every color please!?

In all its subtle beauty ivory is one of my favorite colors, however, alone it can be a little dull. To add color I accessorized with silver and aqua tones, and as a final touch a daisy crown.

Hope you all are off to a great start this October. Being that it is my favorite month of the year, I'm already reaping the benefits of the good autumn vibes, and I wish the same for all of you. Here's to a great month! Cheers!

About A Girl

Some say no pain, no gain, and those were my exact thoughts during this shoot. As I mentioned in my last post I recently had surgery on my right foot, and the healing process hasn't exactly been a cakewalk. Since I'm a bit of a rebel I've been going against the grain and have been more active than I should be... which is still not a lot of activity (thumbs down). With that being said here's a little rebellious post for your enjoyment :).

As I was running simple errands around town I wore a spruced up tank look. Nirvana is one of my favorite bands so naturally I have one of their band shirts (a few actually), and although I have been doing the grunge look a lot lately, I kind of wanted to change it up a bit with a delicate floral skirt. I swear, Kimchi Blue has some of the prettiest pieces, and this skirt is one of them. The pretty doesn't only stop at the rose print, check out the lace trim. So oh la la! 

Ouch! Here you can see how my poor right foot has been mashed up by my boot (don't you worry, I'm totally ok)… but any who, I really wanted you guys to see how amazing these hide sandals look together. So I slipped the right one on for a sec so I can display the full ensemble. 

Enjoy the last weekend of the month guys and dolls! Cheers!

Draped in Pearls

Happy Friday! Today I'm going to share a few easy and quick ideas to glam up a simple outfit. So for this look I chose a pair of wide legged trousers with black suspenders. I purchased these pants with the suspenders already attached, but you can easily accomplish this by clipping on any suspenders of your choice. Easy peasy!

If you don't already own one, I highly recommend investing in a black bralette like the one seen here. There are a variety of ways to wear them! They look super hot under sheer tops. They're great for tops that are too low and loose around the breasts (like some tank tops), and if you're up for it, you can even wear it as top like I did, adding edge to this look.    

I found that this outfit made me feel a little 1940's mobsterish, which wasn't what I was going for. The first thing that came to mind was adding a feminine touch, and pearls did just the trick. Buuuut, I kinda draped my self in all the pearls in my jewelry box. I've always wanted to, and thought this was a great opportunity to since I was lacking some glam. 

In case you didn't notice my right foot is a little camera shy on this post. Why you ask??.. Well, I recently under went a corrective surgery last week (bummer!), and despite the pesky pain and inability to stand on my poor foot (and ugly boot I have to wear), I'm delighted to still be able to deliver this post to you guys. I love sharing with you all, and I didn't want this healing process to stop me from doing so. Hope you all enjoyed this quick how to. Have an amazing weekend. Cheers!

Valley Girl Grunge

Did that really just happen? Are we officially in fall? As much as I'm going to miss summer, I do look forward to fall fashion. Im sure a lot of you can relate. Some of my favorite things about fall style are all the awesome mellow tones that embody the season. Here you can see me wearing my favorite flannel with some of those fall tones that I missed during the summer. Don't get me wrong, I love bright colors, but boy does it feel good to wear a lbd and not feel out of season.  This little mesh number was perfect for the dry heat we are still experiencing.

My college semester just started and that means a lot of commuting through campus via walking. At the end of the day my feet were happy I chose these platform sneakers to get around. Plus, hello their velvet! I get super stoked over velvet.

So its been one year since I started this blog and I want to thank everyone that has been following and supporting thus far. It means so much to me that each and every one of you have found my blog helpful in any way or form. Blogging has allowed me to meet some amazing people and has taken me to amazing places. Thank you for staying tuned and I look forward to another year of sharing this passion of mine. As always,

Hey there! Hope everyone is having a happy Tuesday so far… but on another note, let me take you back to this weekend. Last Sunday was a great warm day for a party at the park where my very good friend was celebrating her b-day and also saying farewell to L.A., and soon saying hello to her new home in San Francisco. I wore these playful daisy shorts, and crochet bustier because, well.. something told me there was going to be a water balloon fight…ahheemm. ;)

I mainly wanted to wear summer friendly fabrics to stay comfy but I couldn't resist wearing this vegan leather fringe vest. I'm seriously trying hard not to wear it out, but its kind of hard when it looks so awesome there hanging in my closet! Its just so versatile. Here it added a perfect edge that tied in the texture and color of this look.

You know me, chunky gold accessories are my weakness. Can you blame me? :o

I love everything about these booties. On top of being super cute, they are also comfy. I can walk in these for hours.

As I mentioned earlier, my bff is leaving and I am so proud of her accomplishments and her amazing move to bigger and better things. Although I am sad I won't have her as close, since she is one of my most trusted friends, I can't wait to see her blossom out there. My little wildflower Liz, this post is for you. May love, happiness, and success always be by your side. Cheers!

Boho LBD

This California heat has got us all looking for some shade, so I went miniature golfing with my husband and son at this cool little man made oasis. It was only ideal to wear a loose fit lbd with breathable fabric. If this dress had another inch of fabric I think I would've melted! OK, maybe I'm exaggerating, but it is super hot.

Some of the elements that attracted me to this dress were the knitted patterns on the collar and bottom hem. Lbds' can sometimes be a little plain, and it's details such as these that give you a little more to work with when attempting this look. 

 Stay hydrated everyone, its a hot one. Cheers!

Spiced White T

While running some errands around Hollywood I wore this little bright ensemble. Since it was the middle of the week I decided to wear a plain white t-shirt, but I didn't want to feel dull so I slipped in to this vibrant mini skirt by Shrinking Violet, to spice things up. I really appreciate the subtleness of a white tee, it's like having a plain canvas just waiting to be splashed with color.  

Pops of color were a re-occurring theme with this outfit. I enjoyed playing with the different hues on the skirt and matching them with my shoes, purse, and accessories. 

Hope everyone is enjoying their summer. Stay cool, it's a hot one! Cheers!
