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.

Last night I invited to the Juicy Couture x Kohl’s event at one of LA’s most unique homes; The Sheats Goldstein Residence. Overlooking the city lights of Los Angeles while sipping white wine, listening to tunes & mingling with some of my other fellow bloggers, I was able to experience the excitement of this pretty epic collaboration. I loved the floral wall embellished with Swarovski crystals & the cool idea of InstaPrint. InstaPrint prints Polaroid-like stickers based off a certain hashtag: #JuicyKohls. You can go on Instagram (follow me @LeFashnMonster) and search the hashtag for more images from the event.
I didn’t take an outfit post because I came straight for work (I’m a Marriage & Family Therapist) & didn’t have time to change.Read more
Okay, it’s not really the new black, but the T.V is show premiering it’s new season this week…and for that, I’m happy! I know it’s been awhile, but it’s been one roller coaster of a month. As much as I love fashion and blogging, the mental health field is where my career and future lies. I have working toward building my name in the mental health community and working through getting my intern number and bulking up on clients to get my 3,000 hours done so I can open my practice within the next two years.
Anyhow, I’ll be posting more often though. I do miss the excitement of dressing up and not wearing suits all day!
I’m not usually one to wear too much color, so going all in on one color was a risk for me! I will admit that I absolutely love this color and this style. Two piece looks I love to wear but sometimes finding pieces that just work well is hard, luckily this set from AMI CLUBWEAR came together and fit like a glove!
Alright, as much as I love the idea of ridin’ dirty on a Harley, I probably wouldn’t be able to maneuver one. I have rode on a bike, so fun! Today was casual and I really miss being casual. I’m always working so slacks and button up’s have been my uniform. Now that it’s the weekend I can play! I love these motorcycle leggings so much, I am so happy I got a chance to wear them again. I’m a sucker for a loose denim shirt and white tank. It’s so “hipster” but hipsters don’t have big blonde hair, so I can pull this off without feeling too trendy.

My birthday is tomorrow and I haven’t even thought about what to do, where to go, or anything! It’s been such a crazy month and I realize, a good movie, a glass of wine, and pajamas might just have to be the plan for my Saturday night! But that’s okay, I get to see some girlfriends for dinner tonight and I’m looking forward to it. Today I decided to wear two of my favorite things: sequins and leather. It may be a bit much, but I couldn’t even tell you how fun it was to wear this out for a day of shopping.
Happy Friday to you all!

Last night I went to a holiday party for the old boutique I used to work at and I couldn’t find a top I liked in my closet, so…I went to my mom’s closet and found this amazing sheer grommet detailed top. Naturally, it was black (I promise, some more colorful posts are coming). I loved the new leggings I got too, they have a fun motorcycle appeal to them but most of all, I just loved a reason to get dressed up. I apologize for the lack of scenery in my posts, I’ve been taking pictures quickly and haven’t had time to plan anything out, but I’m working on it :). Happy Saturday!
