Marks The Spot

Take a walk on the wild side…literally! This looks is not for the faint as these printed pants are the complete opposite of discreet. They actually combine two of my favorite things. The first is the most obvious and that is the leopard print. I am a proud member of the “Leopard is a neutral” club and I pay my dues every month. The second is that these are from NYDJ, which if you read my denim favorites post, they are listed right on the top. So in conclusion, these were made for me.

I think that what I love most about these printed pants is that they are super versatile. Even though it’s a very busy print, you can still rock it with a sleek blazer as I’ve done, an edgy moto jacket and booties, and also a sexy top for a night out. As you can see here, I let my Elomi bra peek through the tank top to show a bit of the lace. With lace camis being so on trend, I though that I could make my own version. Needless to say, these pants can be worn for many occasions and they will fit right in.

Since my style tends to lean more on the simpler side, this ruched blazer and tank top were perfect pairings. In my opinions, blazers can go with just about anything under the sun so there’s no surprise. Also, pumps are my faves and these beige suede pumps brought out the color of the pants so well. Overall, this look is bold and daring yet still sophisticated…just like I like it!

Sweater Weather

November 29, 2018


Fall is on its way out and Winter is on its way in. It’s definitely getting chilly here in Los Angeles so sweater weather is in full effect. Although Southern Cali doesn’t have true Winters, hence this off the shoulder sweater, I’m still trying to rock Winter style, the LA way. Check out below for my round up of sweaters (including this one) that you can rock for the upcoming season. Stay warm out there!

I’m just coming to the end of my travels up to the Bay Area. I got to spend a few up in Napa for the first time and had a great time. As always, I wanted to share my experiences and give you all of the details about my travels. So without further adieu, let’s get into it!

Where I Stayed

Napa is marked with many luxury options for lodging. There are actually several different areas within Napa Valley that you can stay, each with their own unique offerings. I narrowed my search down to either staying in downtown Napa or a neighboring town called Yountville. From what I gathered, Yountville is where many of the wineries are with some hotels having views of the vineyards. It also seemed to be more laid back and on the quieter side. Downtown Napa was said to be more happening, being closer to “nightlife” (and I use that term very loosely), as well as tasting rooms and restaurants. Since it was my first time, I decided to go with the latter option to be in the heart of Napa.

After reviewing many different locations, I decided to book a room at the Archer Hotel. I cannot say enough about this hotel. It is beautifully designed and decorated, centrally located, and has great customer service.

When I envisioned a place to stay in Napa, I thought of a cozy, yet modern room with a fireplace to sip wine and unwind at night. This had all of that and more. Everything from the dreamy canopy bed, to the oversized balcony, to the huge soaking tub just fit what I was looking for perfectly.

Business as Usual

November 15, 2018


If you didn’t know already, you may know now that I have a slight obsession with blazers. They are one of the most versatile items of clothing that you can have in your closet. You can dress them up, you can dress them down and anything in between. Long gone are the days that blazers are reserved just for the office or the board room. Now, with updated, modern styles, rich colors and fun embellishments, blazers have become the go-to piece for everyone.

This double breasted blazer from Lane Bryant is no different. It screams sophisticated chic with this sleek design. The blazer is made out of ponte material which I personally love. Ponte allows the jacket to stretch and breathe so that it’s not restricting and has optimal comfort. Plus, I feel that it makes the garment much more approachable in that it will be easier to style with a wide variety of looks.

Aside from the blazer, this essential cami and denim are from Lane Bryant as well.  These are two staples that should be in every woman’s wardrobe. I cannot tell you how many tank tops and camis I have because they are always needed. I also make sure that I have a variety for different pairings. It also goes without saying that you need a great pair of skinny jeans. These are perfect because they are simple and have a dark wash which means that they can be styled with just about anything under the sun.

These items together were a match made in heaven. This look is so easy to replicate yet looks so polished and refined. Be sure to check out the outfit details below and shop Lane Bryant’s newest arrivals!
