XOXO

I love any excuse to dress in theme, so “Galentines” is obviously no exception.

“Galentine’s” has quickly become one of my new favorite days. Not only is it a wonderful excuse to celebrate all the amazing ladies in my life, it’s a great excuse to draw out the celebration of Valentines Day. I love any excuse to celebrate love and plan on showering everyone close to me an extra large dose of it for the rest of the week, but for now I’d like to take a moment to celebrate all the women in my life who inspire me and give me the courage to keep going even when the going gets tough. You ladies know who you are!

Prepping in Pink

With Valentines Day around the corner it felt like the perfect time to whip out this playful pink coat.

Pink isn’t a color I embrace very often, but with Valentines Day around the corner it seemed like the perfect opportunity. I purchased this coat years ago on EBay and it’s still one of my favorite items. It’s feminine without being over the top, and after pulling it out today I think I’m ready to start adding to my pastel coat collection. What color should be next?

Star of the Show

Puff sleeves, playful pleats and stars galore—what’s not to love? 💫

Dress: Tara Jarmon / Boots: Circus by Sam Edelman / Purse: See by Chloe

Ever since falling in love with this Scotch & Soda dress I’ve been trying more and more long sleeve styles. It’s something that never used to be on my radar, but I immediately fell in love with all the dainty details on this Tara Jarmon dress and definitely see my star prints in my future. I love the structure of the puff sleeves and shoulders—it’s a good way to ease into the playful style without completely going all in—the last time I went all in let’s just say it’s a good thing I had a charming personality and was 4! My penchant for dainty details has faded over the years, but I’m learning to embrace it once again thanks to pieces like this one. 

Balancing Act

A little bit punk to balance out the prep 🤟🏻

If one were to describe my style I don’t think it would ever fit into a neat little box. I’m neither preppy, or completely funky, but I love finding ways to combine the two into a perfect, balanced mixture. My style changes day to day based off my mood, and that’s what makes fashion so fun!Who says ones style needs to be something that fits into a perfect box or category? People aren’t that easily explained, so why should how we dress be? 

Skirting the Issue

The thick denim material and longer length of this skirt make it perfect for our ever fluctuating temps in LA.

I rarely wear skirts when the temperature drops below 70, but after cycling through most of my pants, I wanted to shake things up. This Free People skirt was just the right solution! It’s thick material not only holds everything in place (this is what 30 looks like), it manages to keep my bottom half relatively warm when paired with booties. If you haven’t figured it out by now, I am an extreme wimp when it comes to the cold, so this skirt is magical to me. I can definitely say I’m looking forward to the ever warming temperature and am very much so looking forward to spring. I know it’s a ways off, but I’m definitely brainstorming outfits already!

Slithering Into Saturday

I can’t seem to convince myself to wear anything other than these snake print Zara boots right now.

I recognize that eventually I’ll have to wear something other than these gorgeous boots (I don’t want to wear them out too fast), but I can’t bring myself to break away from them just yet. They pair just as well with a simple cotton dress as they do with jeans, and I can’t wait to experiment more with them this weekend!

A new approach I’ve taken to shopping is making sure I can visualize multiple ways to wear something before I invest in it and when I tried these on I saw more than just a few possibilities. It’s making me invest in pieces I really want, and also has lent to me really searching for just the right thing (I was on the hunt for snake print booties for well over 3 months before settling on these), but the wait was definitely worth it!

Orange You Glad

Back to our regularly scheduled programming!

Orange is a color I tend to shy away from, but after almost non-stop rain in LA last week making it impossible for me to take outfit photos sadly, followed by a pretty bad fall (I am on the mend!), I am ecstatic to be getting back into my routine which includes work and blogging and the bright, cheerful hue felt perfect. To dress it down I paired it with my trusty H&M mom jeans and some new snake print booties I found on sale at Zara. I am super loving using animal prints as neutrals right now, and love the combo of the leopard print on the bag with the snake print of the booties combine with the orange. Lesson learned: Less is not always more!
