Luna Park

Top: Sanctuary | Shrots: Zara | Heels: Cole Haan | Jewelery: gorjana

A new day, a little more of the same thing...sorry! I am seriously obsessed with this chambray shirt and it looks so good with white that I couldn't help but pair it up with these shorts & heels I brought with me. I promise, I'll come up with a different color combo tomorrow :)

Been having a great time catching up with friends and family while I've been here but I think I need a vacation from my vacation - I've been working, setting up & taking meetings & running from one family gathering to the next since the minute I landed...I'm not complaining, I swear! I love it here!

Hope you're having an awesome week!

Sydney Stunner

Tank: Forever21 | Shorts: Only Hearts (old, love these printed styles here, here & here) | Shoes: Soludos | Jacket: Zara | Jewelry: Forever21 & gorjana

I. Can't. Get. Enough. Of. This. Heat. 

Ok, so it's slightly humid which means my hair has no idea what to do with itself and it just fros every which way but I'm totally ok with that right now... I mean, I'm in Sydney! :)

Stumbled upon this amazing hideaway with possibly one of the best views of the harbour I have ever seen. After that, my dad took me to a little cove tucked away near Balmoural - had I known we were going to the beach, I would've worn my suit! 

Anywho, I'm having so much fun playing with patterns and trying out new Summer outfits before the season hits at home. I love how the stripes in my shorts played with the ikat pattern of my fave Soludos - definitely not going to be shy about pattern playing when I get home! 

I hope you guys are all having an amazing week!

Down Under

Shirt: Sanctuary (similar style here) |  Skirt: Free People (old, similar style here)  | Sandals: Elizabeth & James (super old, but still my fave!)  | Bag: Deux Lux | Jewelry: gorjana (here, here & here)

If you've been following me on Instagram, you know that I am currently in the land Down Under! I couldn't be happier to be in one of my fave cities - the weather is amaze (it's the end of Summer), I get to visit my extended family & I've got a few appointments with some of my favorite Aussie brands! 

Just a quickie today but stay tuned for more & if you want even more up-to-date photos, follow me on Instagram :)

Top: H&M (old, love these basic striped tops here, here & here) | Jeans: 7 For All Mankind (about 7 years old // love these updated styles here, here & here) | Heels: Via Spiga | Bag: Deux Lux | Bangles: gorjana

It's pretty safe to say that I am the newest NBA fan - live basketball games are way too fun! If you follow me on Instagram, you know that my boyfriends surprised me with V Day tickets to the Clippers v Lakers game last night and we definitely had a hell of a time! 

I decided to keep my outfit casual but couldn't resist heels - I mean, it was Valentine's Day after all! As I mentioned earlier in the week, my go-to skinny jeans haven't really been doing it for me lately and I've found myself reaching into the deepest, darkest parts of my closet for my high school / college years denim. I've totally lost weight since then and the way my old skinnies/straight leg denim fit me now is just perfect - a little baggy but in just the right areas. Throw a cuff into the mix and you've got a whole new pair of that's love! 

What did you do to celebrate Valentine's Day?!

Cheers to the weekend!

V Day

Jacket: Zara (similar style here) | Tee: Fluxus (in Veridian & Sky) | Leggings: LNA | Shoes: 80%20 | Jewelry: gorjana 

Happy Valentine's Day, Love Muffins! 

I'll keep it short & sweet today.. I hope you're all enjoying yourselves - whether you're celebrating V Day with a loved one, some girlfriends or no one in particular, I wish you all love & happiness today! 

You guys are all my Valentine's today!

Red Heart

Button Up: Banana Republic (old, love these V Day-esque styles here, here & here) | Jeans: Rich & Skinny | Heels: Cole Haan | Bag: Deux Lux | Ring & Bracelets: gorjana

With Valentine's Day just around the corner, I thought it only appropriate to get in the romantic spirit! Well, what better way than playing with stripes & a monochromatic look - just two of my fave trends. Seriously, I have been eating stripes up lately - big ones, small ones, horizontal & vertical ones! I love how you can easily take any outfit from sweet to edgy with a different stripe - pretty powerful stuff! :)

Anyway, my boyfriend totally spoiled  me by giving me my Valentine's Day gift early...he totally surprised me with tickets to the LA Clippers v Lakers game tomorrow night (After I picked my jaw up off the floor,  he totally deserved a big hug & kiss for that one!) Um, so excited! I've never been to a basketball game and in true style blogger fashion, I don't know what to wear! Any suggestions?

Chunky & Worn In

Sweater: H&M | Jeans: 7 For All Mankind (um, like 7 years old! Newer styles here, here & here)  | Heels: Joe's Jeans | Rings: gorjana & 4th & Bleecker x Luv AJ | Bracelets: gorjana

I'm baaaack! I just want to apologize for my lack of posting lately - I've been so busy and the boy has been in and out of town so I've had no one to take my photos :( When you're family is calling asking if you're ok because you haven't posted in a while, you know it's bad...oops! 

Anywho, I'm pretty sure I've been wearing a variation of this outfit for 3 days - I can't get enough! When the weather is cold and dreary like it has been here in So Cal, I automatically reach for a chunky sweater & my usual skinny jeans. Well, I've been attracted to so many different silhouettes lately that my skinny jeans just aren't cutting it anymore. 

I've been digging through my closet, especially my jean collection, to find some old school styles and these O L D 7s were just what the doctor ordered. I really wish I had some more delicate heels to pair with this outfit but my trusty wedges did the trick just fine - these were what I was really thinking of balancing out the whole outfit, especially since the top is so chunk city!

I hope you guys are off to an amazing week and enjoying & being inspired by all the NYFW photos circling the web - I know I am!

Wednesday Wishin'

1. Peplum Top // Three Floor
2. Trousers // Charlotte Ronson
3. Stud Cuff // CC Skye
4. Clutch // House of Harlow 1960
5. Pumps // Alice + Olivia

Even though we're barely into February, I've got warmer weather & longer days on my mind. Thankfully, a 2 week trip to Australia in a couple of weeks will help satisfy this craving - seriously can't wait to see my fam down under & spend some time traveling with my Dad!

Anywho, I am absolutely obsessed with a slouchy printed pant - comfy, relaxed but still totally chic! Reach for a more structured top, a classic pump and some fun accessories and you're good to go - to the office or drinks. 

Best part about this whole look? Each piece is currently on S A L E over on Shopbop - yes, you heard me! Go get your shop on!

Oldie But Goodie

Tee: Fluxus (in black & sky) | Jeans: Rich & Skinny (old - some moto styles I'm loving & on S A L E here, here & here) | Booties: Zara | Clutch: Clare Vivier | Necklace: Forever21 | Rings: gorjana & Luv AJ x 4th & Bleecker

Fun fact about me - I have way too many pairs of jeans that sometimes I forget what I own. So, when I rediscovered these super old school Rich & Skinny's circa 2008, I was pleasantly surprised that 1. They still fit (!) and 2. They were back in style. 

I am obsessed with all things moto so I love the pockets on these bad boys. It was only natural for me to reach for my leopard booties - I'm a sucker for a green & leopard combo - a white tee & some statement jewels for a quick bite & cocktail last Friday! 

Have an awesome day, lovebugs!
