Happy NYE! What a year it has been in 2018 with so many wonderful things happening. I for one cannot wait to celebrate not only all that I have accomplished personally and as a family, but how far the blog has come this year. It has truly been a fun ride, and I think it is important to celebrate all the little things from 2018. And what better way to celebrate than in faux fur for the new year?!
I don't know about you but it is always hard for me to decide what to do for New Years Eve. There are always so many options: rooftop bar, 20's themed party, or ringing in the new year with a limited time brew from a local brewery. Either way, if you are like me you probably decide where to go last minute. This simple fitted black mini dress from H&M is perfect for any choice you choose for NYE. It can be dressed up or down or even combined with a few accessories for a themed party. I also always hate spending tons of money for a NYE outfit and this one is a steal! You can even re-wear it for a bachelorette party or night at the bar.
No matter what, for some reason it always ends up being super chilly on NYE. Yes even in Los Angeles. That's why I love this faux fur coat. It keeps me super warm for any occasion and just adds that much more glam to this simple NYE mini dress. And throw on a pair of RAYE furry heels and it will make you feel like Sarah Jessica Parker all night ready to take on the town! What are your plans for NYE?? Comment below!
It is becoming more and more a thing to wear your active wear clothes outside of the gym. With the sneaker trend being so big now, its perfectly acceptable and encouraged to rock your leggings, sweatshirts, and sneakers. I love throwing on comfortable athleisure wear for errands or just exploring downtown. Read along to find my tips on how to transition your outfit from workout class to lunch date or a run to target.
With athleisurewear, I think the most important thing is layering. Layer a jacket, pullover, or sweater over your normal leggings and tank to give that extra added chicness to your look. My C-clique sheer pull over that I found at a vintage store in Paris is the perfect piece to help bring my boring sports bra and leggings to a new level. I also encourage to mix up different materials. The key to chic activewear is to mix some of your standard pieces with different materials and everyday clothing. I love how the sheer material gives a bit of feminine vibes to this look. And lastly, it is important to have clean, quality pieces. Do not pull out old, sweat stained workout wear or ratty sneakers. Make sure that your pieces look nice and are quality material. This will really set the tone.
Western inspired pieces has been a big trend pushing its way into fall and winter styles this season. I am not a go all out western style kind of gal but I am loving the subtle details of adding buckles, suede, and fringe to westernize a look. I chose these simple western black booties and they seem to give my fall and winter wardrobe a classic tough without going full on cowgirl.
What better way to be western chic than in the middle of the desert in Joshua Tree. We spent Thanksgiving this year in Joshua Tree (see post here), and it was the perfect inspiration for this look. I chose this Max Studio mock neck sweater in a soft, tan color. It is probably one of the softest sweaters I currently own! It also has the cutest little tie detail on the sides. I paired it with my go-to black jeans from Gap with a raw/fringe hem on the bottom. The fringe hem plays up with the rustic, western Miss Selfridge boots. It has a leather to suede detailing with the cutest little buckle on the side. Very subtle western and can be paired with almost any everyday outfit.
