a certain romance

TGIF! Another week has gone and another weekend is among us! I don’t know about you but I can’t even remember what I’ve done all week. It’s been crazy, but I can’t complain. Juggling blogging, my internship as a Marriage & Family Therapist and starting my own business (check out the progress here), the weekend is something I look forward to. Although I still work, I allot time for myself on the weekend to avoid burn out. Burn out is one of the worst things we can to do to ourselves. No matter what, make time for YOU.

Today’s outfit post is back to the basics: total black. The weather (it’s 90 degrees still) is not exactly Fall fashion friendly here in Los Angeles, but thankfully there is air conditioning which allows me to pull of some Fall trends. Today’s trend is the oversized coat. What I love about this coat is not only it’s versatility but the patent sleeves. It gives it an edgy touch yet the cut and length keep is classic.

modern metallics

Today I wanted to discuss my love for one of Fall’s biggest trends, Metallic. Metallic can be incorporated into your wardrobe as a statement piece or an everyday piece. Of course metallic doesn’t always mean super shiny, super bold and super obvious. There are so many great pieces that have hints of metallic so if you’re not ready to take the plunge, you don’t have to!

crying lightning

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christma—wait…wrong song. Sure it’s just the first day of October but the Holidays are slowly sneaking up on us. I’m very excited about Halloween (I’m debating on being Mugatu from Zoolander or Jigsaw from Saw. I mean, it’s never too early to think about these things right? Oh, and pumpkin pie season is literally just around the corner…I’ll just stop rambling now. Ahhhh, I’m so excited for the Holidays!!! Who’s with me?

Today’s post is both work & date night friendly. Switch out the jacket for a blazer and you can re-wear this outfit, or take it a bit more professional the same day. This outfit was for a dinner date with a girlfriend & I just simply love the denim/leopard/red combination. It’s Fall, it’s clean, and it’s stylish. I know I’m usually all black, but people change…right? :)

Style Crush: Amal Alamuddin

Well, technically, Amal Clooney (still getting used to that!). Since I first saw images of this woman with womanizer George Clooney I was instantly intrigued. She was classy, educated, and successful. She projects confidence and doesn’t sell her body for attention. I have mad respect for this woman and as I’ve followed her through the media, I’ve seen her ever-evolving style. I.Am.Obsessed!

Amal’s style is classic and extremely chic. If I could (believe me, I would) rock almost everything I’ve seen her in. Her wedding style has been so on point, I am left speechless after every photo I see her. This woman truly has it all: brains, success, beauty, confidence, and Mr. George Clooney.

This Giambattista Valli dress went from runway to the streets of Italy. I need this dress in my life, however, I’m pretty sure it’s going to be sold out world-wide. Thanks Amal (it’s okay, my wallet forgives you).

you’re so dark

It’s Monday! Yes, I’m actually really happy about it. This weekend was beyond perfect. I’ve been overworked the past few weeks & just needed some “I don’t want to use my brain” time. Saturday night I was able to play an array of classic arcade games. Sunday, I went to the Los Angeles County Fair. Oh. My. God. I ate almost everything in sight and went on all the rides (I got dizzy a lot but it was totally worth it!). It felt so good to just be carefree and enjoy the moment. I really must say, a proper day off really is the best medicine.

Anyhow, today’s outfit is what I wore to work. It’s finally Fall so I tried to captured the Fall with the photography. I’m a sucker for leather pants, and this deep oxblood color is a great statement piece. I paired these pants with a black & white striped blouse to give it some edge but still keep it professional. What are your thoughts on leather pants?

Hope you all have a fantastic week!photo 1-9 Read more

R U Mine?

Happy Friday!

I hope you all had an amazing week. I’m currently struggling to type as I went a little heavy at the gym the past three days. My arms feel like JELLO but I’m pushing through! Thank you Crossfit Array, for torturing me yet keeping me tone (such a love-hate relationship).

One of my favorite “fashion” quotes is “I’ll stop wearing black when they make a darker color”. I mean, black is black. It’s easy, chic, and did I mention easy? Today’s look is a total black look with hardware. Basically, a very “me” outfit. Whats your go-to color?

brick by brick

Annnnnd, it’s Monday. But let’s remember that Monday’s don’t always be so bad. For one, it’s a new week which means you can re-do last week, sort of. I feel like Monday’s allow me to just tackle the week in new ways and they motivate me to push myself to be more productive than last week. Am I weird? Probably. A positive mind can make the most “meh” days a little better. Just try it…shake off the Monday blues and go “YAY! It’s Monday”…

If you find yourself bored at work, be sure to check out the new “SHOP” section on the bog. There you will find pieces you’ve seen on me as well as some affordable and chic pieces I’ve found.

Aside from that, I’ll be hosting a giveaway on the blog featuring the denim & leather clutch in today’s post! Stay tuned for details :)
