Happy New Year

Wednesday, December 31, 2014

Happy New Year everyone! 

Being honest, this last year was a bit of a rough one for me and my family.... not the whole year but it sure seemed like an emotional roller coaster. Don't get me wrong, the year had plenty of great moments that I am so thankful for!

I'm very excited to begin a fresh start on the new year. I feel like 2015 has big things in store! So stay tuned :)

Thanks so much for reading and sticking by me through this last year.

Hope you all have a safe and fun New Years! 


Snow Day

Monday, December 29, 2014

Get the look:
Knit Sweater // Scarf // Leggings // Puffy Jacket // Boots (old, new version here) // Gloves (loving this color!) // Beanie

Hope everyone had a wonderful holiday!!

On Christmas night, we flew out to Bend, OR for a nice little snowy getaway with some family at Sun River Resort. Its been such great vacay.... sitting around the lodge by the giant fireplaces, sipping snugglers (hot chocolate with peppermint schnapps), walking to the village in the snow.... its just awesome! 

The other great part about being in the mountains is bundling up in fun cold weather clothes. Like these killer boots from Sorel..... They are so cute and really comfy with plenty of traction when walking around town in the snow. I mean, come on, how much cuter can a water-proof boot be!? 

Guys, New Years is only a few days away... Are you ready? What are you guys planning? I would love to hear your plans or traditions so leave your comments below.

The hubby and I will be attending a black tie wedding for NYE.... I'm super excited to get all fancied up for the evening. I decided to rent a dress from Rent the Runway, which is such an awesome site! Have any of you tried this site? Its perfect for an occasion like this, where I need a formal dress just for one night but don't want to buy one for hundreds of dollars..... enter Rent the Runway! :)


Oxfords & Oxblood

Get the look:
Oxblood Sweater (similar here) // LBD (love this one) // Black & White Oxfords (loving these just as much, if not more!)

Oxblood and Oxfords.....

2 major fall trends that I'm obsessing over! 

Every time I've been out online shopping... lets be real, I'm a big online shopper, or at least browser. Then I head to the store, once I find something that interests me online, to touch, feel, try on, buy, etc..... I seem to gravitate towards everything Oxblood or Maroon. I just can't seem to get enough of it, pants, sweaters, shoes, scarfs... you name it, I probably want it in oxblood. So this over sized cozy sweater was a must for me this year.

And these shoes..... swoon!

I just love the whole black and white thing.... well just black and white in general! Those 2 colors make a large amount of my closet... #truth. And then there's the whole Oxford style, love. I love wearing them with a simple rest of your look.... think jeans and a tee with these puppies as your statement piece. Throw in a structure bag and your set!


TomBoy Chic

Friday, December 12, 2014

Get the look: 
Leather Jacket //  Pants // Beanie // Boots

Happy friday loves!

Ok, lets talk about this look.... this jacket is to die! Every girl needs a great leather jacket hang in in their closet and this one is a serious score at under $100. The leather is so soft and the cut is feminine yet edgy. It also has a bit of padding in the shoulders (hello 80's!) which I am loving!

I paired my stunner of a jacket with high waisted black skinnies and a simple white tee. Throw in some gorg boots (remember these bad boys!?) and a fun beanie to complete this tomboy chic look. 

And on a side note, how awesome is the VW bus!? The hubby and I bought it several years ago and finally have it up and running. It's so fun to take out for a drive along the coast and head down to the beach for the day and camp out.

We have been talking about painting it but can't decide what color.... What do you guys think? I would to hear from your suggestions. :)


Road Trip Casual

Tuesday, December 9, 2014

Get the look: 
Flannel (old but similar here) // Tee (similar here and here) // Birks

Hey y'all!! 

Oh man, has life been crazy these past few months.... but making it thru the craziness and back to the blog!

This look is one from when the hubby and I road tripped it up to Paso for a friends wedding. We took the coast route, which was so fun, stopping along the way to get some incredible photos. Its seriously so gorgeous up there! 

Anyways, I don't know about you guys, but when I'm on a road trip, I want to be comfy while sitting in the car for hours but I also don't want to be in frumpy old sweats cause we like to stop and explore along the way. So comfy but "presentable in public" is a must for me. Enter this look.... the most comfy sandals ever, (you guys know how I love my birks!), oversized tee, and a flannel of course...ya know, in case it gets chilly. 

Done and Done!


Trend to Try: Co-Ordinates

Tuesday, August 26, 2014

1. Floral Stripe Set // 2. Top/Bottom // 3. Top/Bottom // 4. Top/Bottom

A trend I have been dying to try is co-ordinates. They have been popping up in whole sections on a bunch of the online sites I stock daily (yea, its a problem!). 

This summer I have been a big fan of the crop top paired with a high waist so taking that trend and matching the top and bottom in the same print is a no brainer, must try for me. 

Plus how can you resist all the adorable, fun prints out there these days!?

Is this a trend you will try?


Instant Outfit: High Waists and Cropped Tops

Tuesday, August 12, 2014

I have been LOVING all the high waisted trouser pants out there this summer..... especially paired with a fun crop top! This look has been my jam for several reasons. 

1) Simplicity- Its 2 easy to wear pieces that look totally polished and seriously well thought out when put together, even though it probably only took you 10 seconds to throw on. 

2) Comfort- The wide leg fit of the pants make this look super comfy and not too hot for the summer time sun.

3) Hello sexy! Even though my first 2 reasons were simple and comfy, make no mistake, this outfit has plenty of sexy.... The hint of skin is just enough without being too showy. I personally think its much sexier to leave a little to the imagination rather than lettin' it all out there, no!?

4) Day to Night- An outfit you can wear to out and about shopping/lunching during the day but also wear for date night that evening!? Sign me up! I love an outfit that can transition from day to night with just a switch of the shoes or some jewelry.

Anyone else loving' this look?? I'd love to hear how all of you are wearing this trend, so please share!

Maxi dresses.

I love 'em.... I'll just throw that one out there!

And this one, swoon! And for $25, double swoon..... I felt like I should put on a big floral crown and be sitting on a funky blanket next to an eclectic tee pee.... Hmm, photoshoot idea!? I think YES! 

OR like I should be wondering around the Greek Islands. :)...... my dream trip!

This little number was a super steal from this random little shop I found a few weeks back. And for $25 bucks, it was a no brainer. Similar versions of this dress are selling like hot cakes for close to $110 ( similar version found here). 

I personally like the $25 price tag better.... just saying! :)


Casual Friday

Friday, July 25, 2014

Happy Friday loves!!!!

Today I'm sharing a look I wore last week while wandering around downtown San Juan Capistrano. Which, btw, has so many amaze new places!! Great new restaurants, and a couple new wine bars. Sign me up!!!

Ok back to the outfit.
I am loving stripes and casual dresses these days so this dress screamed "buy me!" when I saw it.... and at $25 I couldn't resist!

The fabric is so comfy and soft, and the faux leather sleeve detail gives it a 'lil somethaaang extra :)
Keep it casual with some cute sneakers (all stars are my FAV) or cute it up with some fun wedge sandals..... Perfect for whatever mood you may be in.

Hope you all have a fabulous weekend!
