location: downtown los angeles
Moving to downtown Los Angeles, I find myself constantly on the move and a lot of additional walking, which is great! I can walk to the grocery store (yes I never take a car), local coffee shops, restaurants, and bars. So I have had to update my sneakers a bit. I have my classic Adidas (last seen here and here), but I wanted a sleeker, more athletic look and these blush Nike's are perfect!
I am very much obsessed with light colored and neutral tennis shoes. I want them to be able to match any outfit I am wearing whether it is athletic wear to a casual day outfit. So when I found these blush Nikes, I had to have them!
product: Adorn EDP Tigers Eye Fragrance
There is just something about a fragrance that puts a pep in your step and creates an entirely new mood. I mostly gravitate towards earthy scents over florals. I am not sure why but this Urban Outfitters fragrance gives me strength and confidence.
When I smell a certain perfume, it brings me back to sweet memories. My first perfume ever was Clinique Happy that my grandmother purchased for me at the makeup counter at the mall. Ralph by Ralph Lauren makes me think of high school football Friday nights and movie dates with Patrick. Then in college I wanted a bit more daring and independent and Dot by Marc Jacobs certainly fit those specifications. Now moving into another phase in my life, I needed a new scent to accompany these sweet memories being made.
Adorn Tiger's Eye from Urban Outfitters is just that fragrance for my newlywed adventure with Patrick and a chic, young career woman. I actually wore it at our wedding so that amazing and beautiful day will always be cherished with this scent. The sandalwood and moss smell with a touch of citrus peel (or at least that's what I smell ha), is the perfect balance to provide strength and confidence. And can you not marvel at this bottle design. A classic clear rectangle shape with a gold top and the cutest little sacred stone. Supposedly the stone is supposed to channel inner strength, balance, and luck,
In order to have a longer lasting scent, I try to apply after showering since the moisture on my skin and opened pores will absorb the fragrance. I spray on my pulse points (wrists, neck, etc) to help secure the top notes to last longer. And if you are wanting a lighter scent, spray the fragrance in the air and walk right through to just sprinkle on.

My husband got us tickets this past weekend to an art exhibit featuring local artists. It was so much fun! Being on a Sunday afternoon, the event was a bit more casual than expected of a typical art exhibit or gallery so this flirty off the shoulder top was on point!
This shirt has it all! Pattern, bow, ruffle, poof sleeves, you name it! Perfect for a flirty day date or brunch with the girls! The material is lightweight and gingham always screams sunny weather so it is the perfect transition piece from Winter to Spring. The off the shoulder detail gives a little sexier appeal that is fun.
I paired it with this casual black jean and pointed toe flats (last seen here and here) which were perfect to walking to Grand Central market for some lunch afterwards! I cannot wait for truly warm weather to get here so that I can pair this top with a skirt or shorts.
