Taking a Moment

Blazer: Target / Top: Ross / Jeans: H&M / Shoes: Kenneth Cole Reaction / Purse: Furla

After many many weeks of constantly overbooked weekends, I decided it was high time to tackle the monstrosity that my roots had become. It wasn’t until I was leaving the salon feeling like a million bucks, that I realized how much I’d needed to just set aside some me time. It’s so easy to say yes to plans when they are all something I want to do, but I’m slowly discovering just how important it is to slow down and schedule in days where there’s either pampering to be done, or absolutely nothing at all. Consider this my own unique way of spring cleaning—cleaning up my schedule. 

Happy Monday everyone! 

Feelin’ the Green

Sweater: H&M / Dress: C/MEO Collective / Boots: Zara / Purse: Prada
Recently I’ve really leaned in to getting more use and wear out of even the simplest of items. This dress when paired with my camel coat and the same boots was perfectly elegant and chic for a date night, but wanted to make it more daytime appropriate. It’s a bit on the lower cut side, and all that white is asking for disaster when you combine it clutziness with toddler hands, so I figured why not try and cover some of it up? It completely changed the look exactly how I wanted it to and I’m happy to report that the dress is still (miraculously) white! 

Distressed, but Not Stressed

I knew as soon as I saw this dress it would be absolutely perfect for a day spent at Malibu Wines celebrating one of my favorite people. The light mesh material, beautiful floral print, and swingy tiers of ruffles made me feel like a fairy princess. We donned flower crowns, drank plenty of rosè and ate out weight in cheese. It was a perfect spring day celebrating my best friend and I look forward to many more days filled in the sun with friends (and wine)! 

Floral Fever

Jacket: H&M / Sweater: Thrifted / Pants: Thrifted / Boots: Reaction by Kenneth Cole / Purse: Prada
Not sure if it’s just the much needed break from the rain and cold, but I have fully embraced spring in full force! I’ve been reading oodles of articles on spring trends, some of which I tried out today—not sure how I feel about the tucked pants, can’t tell if it’s too parachute pantlike for my taste, but I’m enjoying getting out of my comfort zone more and more. 
Florals on the other hand are one spring trend I’ve never had a problem embracing. I’ve had these pants for years, and they still never get old! I love the combo of muted colors, and light pastels mixed in. They’re the perfect piece to transition into more outlandish floral patterns, which I fully intend to do before the season is through!

Spring Bling


Coat: H&M / Sweater: Willow & Clay / Jeans: H&M / Shoes: Circus by Sam Edelman / Clutch: Elizabeth Arden (thrifted) / Necklace: Forever 21

Though the weather is not nearly as pleasant today as it was last week (looking at you 15 minutes of torrential downpour–my shoes are still drying out), I was determined to still embrace the first day of spring in my usual fashion–on theme! We all know I love any excuse to celebrate, so I whipped out my blingiest necklace,  which felt perfect in all its florally goodness, and built my outfit from there. 

Happy first day of Spring everyone! 

A Modern Twist

Blazer: Thrifted / Top: H&M / Jeans: H&M / Shoes: Luobote / Headband: Scunci

I went on the hunt this weekend for something to wear to an upcoming 80s themed musical for a girlfriends birthday, and have not been able to stop wearing it. To keep it modern I paired it was a chiffon camisole and green slides and skinny jeans. Even though this is preppier than I’d usually go, the exaggerated shoulder pads and leather trim keep it feeling funky and playful. I didn’t expect to get so much wear out of anything I bought for this show, but that just goes to show how cyclical fashion is and how much fun it can be to play around with items your normally wouldn’t think to wear everyday.

Lovely Lilac

Coat: Scotch & Soda / Top: Gap / Jeans: H&M/ Boots: Zara

Scotch & Soda has quickly become one of my favorite brands over these last few months. Unfortunately it’s been too cold to rock any of their dresses, so when I spotted this pretty lilac number I thought it would be a perfect spring transition peace. The mustard and burgundy stripes on the collar keep it from being overly feminine and to let the coat shine through I kept the rest of the outfit simple with a white top and skinny jeans. I love how a good piece of outwear can change the simplest of outfits into something unique, special and playful. 

All Dress(ed) Up

Coat: H&M / Dress: Slate & Willow / Jeans: H&M / Boots: Circus by Sam Edelman / Purse: Souvenir from Greece

I’ve been trying to find a way to wear this dress since I rented it, but unfortunately the weather wasn’t cooperating. After almost giving up, I was scrolling through Instagram and came across one of my favorite bloggers posts, Beth Jones of B. Jones Style, and it reminded me that I’ve seen her wear countless dresses over pants or jeans. It’s something I’d never quite felt confident enough to do, but by unbuttoning the dress halfway it allowed me to dip my toes into the style, without fully committing. I love that I was able to find a way to wear this dress before returning it, and super grateful for the reminder to think outside the box. I’ll definitely be playing around with this more in the future.

Lucky Find

Coat: H&M / Sweatshirt: H&M / Jeans: H&M / Boots: Sam Edelman

Coats are one of the items that I find myself renting most often—living in LA there’s not much reason to have an extensive collection of winter coats, but that being said they’re one of my favorite articles of clothing. A good coat can elevate even the simplest of outfits, and they are one of those items that I believe are worth the investment. After it being unseasonably cold last few weeks, I decided to continue my hunt for a good camel coat—it’s a piece I’ve always wanted, but just hadn’t found one that called to me. It’s a classic piece that will never go out of style, and I was fully ready to spend a decent amount on one that would last. However, while browsing H&M a couple weeks ago I came across this beauty, on sale no less! I immediately added it to my cart (along with a few other items, shhh don’t tell) and anxiously awaited its arrival. And it did not disappoint! 

Pile It On

Coat: Forever 21 / Top: Gap / Jeans: M.i.h. jeans / Boots: Circus by Sam Edelman/  Purse: Souvenir from Greece / Necklace: Cost Plus World Market / Headband: Scunci 

When I rented these pants I had a simple, but chic formula in mind—White T-shirt tucked in, white booties, white bag, let the pants shine. What ended up happening was a lack of white shirt being available (the laundry monster has finally caught up and got the better of me), so I was forced to think outside the box I’d created for myself. What ended up happened was probably closer to a mad scramble as I tried to get ready for work, while not being late, but overall I’m quite happy with the result. It’s nothing I would have imagined or brainstormed, but that’s the beauty of this outfit— It’s wacky, fun and eclectic. And also a good reminder that sometimes planning ahead can corner creativity.
