camel coat

One of my favorite colors to wear (aside from black) is camel. I love how it softens up any look and really goes with everything. There is also something sexy and sophisticated about a camel colored coat. The way it looks, the way it makes you feel…a camel coat is a must-have in every woman’s closet (you can see my past love for camel here).

Today’s post is about my new favorite camel colored coat. Here’s something amazing about it too, it was under $120! You can shop similar coats below (they’re too good to pass up!).

holiday trench dress

I love the holidays, and dressing for them can be a challenge. One of my favorite trends this holiday season is wearing a trench as a dress. This kind of look could be pulled off for all occasions, however, depending on the style and length, it could look too sexy or frumpy–so be sure to choose a trench coat that has a light fabric. This one from DailyLook is amazing (get it here). It’s lightweight and has a very cool sheen to it, it looks metallic (and it’s under $80). I added a pair of super fun stone earrings and a just to really make it festive and “bling-bling” (I can’t believe I just said that), I wore these adorable and comfortable heels from Shoedazzle. To top it all off, I created a bold lip with L’OREAL Colour Riche in “British Red”.

I’ll have a lot of holiday looks coming to the blog this month, so stay tuned! I’ll cover sequins, to feathers, to winter whites…

Holiday trends for 2014 are so fun, so please comment below if there is something you would like to see me try out!

I’m totally blasting Christmas music right now…I am 100% in the christmas spirit!

Happy Monday! I hope you all got to check out my Cyber Monday guide (if not, check it out here). I know I did a lot of holiday shopping myself. I’m one of those people who handles the holidays early so I can avoid the anxiety that tends to come along as Christmas comes closer and closer.

I hope you guys had a lovely weekend and getting back into the grind hasn’t been too painful. Today’s post is super fun. Last week I shot with 1015 store in Downtown L.A and got to parade around the streets in some pretty fun outfits. This is one of them!

Thanksgiving

Happy post-Thanksgiving! I hope you all had a lovely time with your loved ones. My father and I had a very low key Thanksgiving (my mother is currently in Turkey doing charity work). We went to IHOP for breakfast! I love that place because it reminds me of my childhood. My father used to drive me to school and 2-3 times a week we would stop for breakfast there and I would always get my silver dollar pancakes, eggs sunny side up and chocolate milk. My father, being a health nut, always asked for easy chocolate so I would not be fueled up on excess sugars. Now that I think about it, I have one cavity, so I’m thankful to him for being so aware.

Also, THANK YOU! I am thankful for my virtual family. You all make me so happy & push to me to do better all the time. I can’t thank you enough. Without you, I wouldn’t still be blogging and having the opportunity to talk to you all.  The skirt I’m wearing is from my online store; Private Cartel and this weekend only everything is 15% off plus FREE SHIPPING. Be sure to check it out! Use the promo code THANKS :)

Today’s post is quick but I spent Monday shooting for a fun online store in Downtown L.A! I will post those images once they’re ready. But in the meantime, this is what I wore prior to the shoot.

Shoedazzle x St. Judes

A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to attend high tea at The London Hotel in West Hollywood for an event hosted by Ashley Tisdale supporting cancer research for St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital. The event was sponsored by Shoedazzle and it was such a pleasure to be able to spend the time for a good cause. Aside from blogging, I also am a Marriage & Family Therapy Intern and see clients, mainly children & adolescents , so children have a very special place in my heart.

For the event, I naturally wore these amazing silver pointed toe pumps (they’re called the “Beatrice”) from Shoedazzle. They are so chic and look very expensive, but most of all, they were extremely comfortable.
