My obsession with camel is on-going and I don’t think it’s going to be over anytime soon. This camel coat from Lioness has quickly become my go-to coat for almost every look (see previous post here). I wear it with my denim, with my dresses, and with my work clothes. In today’s post I paired this camel coat with my favorite gray two-piece from my online store Private Cartel (get it here). I love the pairing of neutrals together, especially camel and gray.
A gray two-piece is a sexy yet chic way to create a unique going out look. Two-piece sets are all the rage and pairing it with a cool oversized coat makes this effortless and chic. For the Fall/Winter & Spring/Summer seasons, a camel coat is a definite must have. You can get a thicker one for the cooler seasons and a loose and thin trench for the warmer seasons.
Two weeks ago I had the opportunity to shoot with Leyna of Yellow Heart Photography. Leyna is one of the most incredible natural light photographers out there and when she reached out to collaborate on a photo shoot, I couldn’t resist. With Leyna, we had a general idea of what we wanted to accomplish, but we didn’t plan too much. Together, we used what we each delivered that day, our minds. Together we did a set of seven completely different looks each with their own story. Today I have the honor of sharing one of the first looks we shot at Solstice Canyon in California. I love the idea of sequins & basics paired together. I took my favorite sequin jacket out of the closet (where it’s been sadly gathering dust) and knew I wanted to use it for this shoot. With Leyna’s vision, we created this.
The vibe of this set to me is like a glam version of boy scouts. The wooden seating, the nature, the tree trunk, it just felt perfect to be one with nature. Sequins can be tricky but when worn as a statement they add so much fun to every look. With the holiday’s coming up, a sequin jacket is a great way to add some sparkle. Shop similar jackets below
I’m not usually wearing animal-print, but when I do, it’s typically my statement piece. This leopard coat has been in my closet for years and it’s one of my favorite animal-print items I own. It’s soft, comfortable and it keeps me warm! A leopard coat is a great way to take a basic outfit up a notch. Since the leopard print is very dominant, I just wore my favorite DSTLD coated high-waist skinnies with a basic tank.
Since my leopard coat is pretty old, I can’t find it online, however, I found some similar ones (and one’s I actually like better) in the Shop The Post section at the bottom of this post.
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!).
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!
Happy post-Thanksgiving. I’m sure some of ya’ll braved the malls and some of you stayed home and shopped online.

I love this time of year, I get to get gifts for my loved ones (and myself, here and there) and the Christmas decor and music just brings me SO much joy. I can never be in a foul mood this time of year.

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
