Effortlessly Cool

H&M cardigan/tee/tights, DIY Levi shorts, F21 shoes/purse

I love wearing black tights underneath shorts, especially denim shorts.  I think it adds an instant "I don't care" kind of attitude.  I paired these high-waisted shorts with an oversize cardigan to play off the proportions of the fitted shorts and tee and threw on one of my bf's frayed scarf for contrast (plus warmth, it got cold when the sun set). 

I wore this little effortlessly "cool" outfit on a day-after-christmas shopping trip, which was a bad idea.  Every single store held a 50% off sale and I couldn't help but be a little curious.  Well, my curiosity cost me a pretty penny (several pretty pennies).  I can't wait to show you guys what I bought in the next few posts.

Merry Christmas... A Day Later

H&M knit cardigan and vintage jumpers

I spent the last few days entertaining friends and family and planned a play date with my furry love, Boo.  I hope you guys had the greatest Christmas ever!  I apologize for being a day late... Hope Santa brought you everything you wanted!

Denim X2

Denim shirt-vintage, BDG denim- Urban Outfitters, Wedges- Forever 21, Watch- Marc by Marc Jacobs

There is something about denim on denim that seems so casual chic to me.  I paired my analogous outfit with a pair of leopard wedges for that added pop of color. 

All my complaints about the cold weather has paid off, today LA was blessed with sunshine and clear skies.  On my day off, I met up lover boy for lunch in Santa Monica and browsed 3rd St. Promenade for some last minute stocking stuffers. Somehow, an unproductive day unintentionally became productive.  I should take more days off! 

Christmas is in THREE days!!!!

Chilly Wednesday

BDG/ military jacket/ wedge- Urban Outfitters, Headband/ tee/ cardigan/ purse/ necklace- Forever 21

It's been so cold here in LA and my idea of keeping warm is to pile on as much clothes as possible.  Sometimes it doesn't even match (HA!)  Lately, I've been pairing lots green and blue together.  You wouldn't think these two "neutrals" go so well hand in hand. 

It's funny how when you're growing up, your mom would teach you how to match your clothes; white and blue, grey and black, pink and white, and so forth...  But as you get older, you tend to break those 'old wives' rules.  Times are changing and I wouldn't want it any other way!

Festive Florals

Dress- Forever 21(old), tights- H&M, shoes- Bakers, DIY bracelets, and Marc by Marc Jacobs watch

There is something about flowers that brightens my day (or night).  Maybe its the colors, or the scents, or perhaps the way its delivered?!?  Whatever it may be, I LOVE IT! 

Loverboy and I went to his company's holiday party at The Lot in West Hollywood this past Thursday.  And it was one of the best parties I've ever been to! 

I hope you all had a great weekend.  Christmas is in 6 days!!!!  This year is just zooming by!

Photo Diary- Big Bear

Some friends and I spent the weekend at Big Bear Lake and I can't believe that a two-hour drive can take you into another world!  The mountains, streets and treetops were covered in snow, it was very magical!  What a nice way to start the holiday season.

Hope you guys are having a great weekend!  XO

Giving Thanks

 ***Holiday decorations in the Bellagio Hotel, vintage band shirt and levi's shorts, H&M knit cardigan/tights, Steve Madden booties, F21 purse/sweater/shirt, Zara leather jacket, BDG demin, and dollhouse oxford shoes

I apologize for my absence.  It's been crazy the last few weeks with me studying and taking my NAPLEX and CPJE, celebrating Thanksgiving, mini family trip, and all while working.  I got exhausted just typing my latest accomplishments.  HA! But I'm back and hopefully more consistence!

I hope you all had an amazing Thanksgiving.  My family (plus my sister's in-laws) went to Las Vegas, NV for the long weekend.  It was quite odd to not pack 5-inch stilettos and mini dresses.  I went for total comfort and I don't know if I can ever revert back to "club wear" again!
