Jacket: Marissa Webb (lookalike steal), Denim: Frame, Blouse: A.L.C, Bag: Givenchy, Shoes: Christian Louboutin (lookalike steal)

Just two more days until I arrive in New York!

I fell in love with this Marissa Webb jacket from Intermix right when I spotted it. The back detail is so cute! I cannot wait to see the Marissa Web fall/winter ’16 collection at NYFW this week.

Underneath, I’m wearing a blouse by ALC. Frame denim is definitely a favorite and I always get so many compliments in particular when I’m wearing these distressed black denim. They of course look great with a pair of Christian Louboutins as well :). My Givenchy has been my go-to bag lately, it’s such a complimentary shade for just about any look.

While I am so looking forward to being a part of all of the events and excitement in New York, I’m dreading the frosty temps! Something tells me that packing light will be nearly impossible this trip!

Romper: Karina Grimaldi, Jacket: Pam & Gela (Flaunt Boutique), Shoes: Dolce vita, Sunglasses: Dior

Happy Monday! How crazy is it that spring is almost upon us? I feel like we were just celebrating Christmas!

I am more than ready for longer, sunnier days filled with floral prints and rompers, like the one I’m wearing here. This romper is one of my favorite pieces by Karina Grimaldi this spring.

I am so excited to be hosting the spring preview of some of my favorite lines at Flaunt Boutique in Danville this Wednesday from 5-8pm.
At the event, I’ll be offering one on one fashion tips and presenting Flaunt’s spring arrivals.
Also, you’ll enjoy 20% off of any purchase made on Wednesday evening.

I am looking forward to spring mingling with everyone!

What’s in My Bag?

Without a bag on my side, I feel naked, as many women do. I couldn’t imagine not having my essentials handy. I try to keep my bags as clutter-free as possible, making the items I really need easy to find.

In my Givenchy bag, I’ve got my
Kate Spade Planner: Sometimes it’s just easier to jot down what I need to remember and have it laid out in front of me.
Chanel Wallet: So necessary in keeping all of my cards organized.
Celine Sunglasses: You never know when you might need them, which is quite often for me.
Club Monaco Hat: It’s nice to be able to throw on a hat if the weather or my hair changes, or to simply change up my look.
– Mints: Who doesn’t need a breath freshener from time to time?
YSL Lip Stain: My go-to lip color
Amore Pacific moisturizer: Keeping skin hydrated is so important, especially during the winter.
Fashionborn Business Cards: Always a good idea to carry a few with you.

And in my LV makeup bag with my must-haves:
Mac Studio Fix Powder
Laura Mercier Mascara
Tocca Perfume
Mac Makeup Remover Wipes
– Marc Jacobs Mini Lip Sticks (Limited Edition)

When I’m asked, “What outfit do you feel most confident or sexiest in?” this look would be it.

A chic leather jacket with a perfect fit and a pair of my favorite denim, like this pair by Rag & Bone, and heels (can’t go wrong with a pair of Christian Louboutins, like these So Kate heels in nude) is the perfect recipe for comfort and confidence.

This leather jacket by Iro is my absolute favorite. It was such a splurge, but as a big fan of leather, I am so grateful that I did because it completes so many different outfits. I have my eye on the black one so it is definitely time to save up again!

Another staple in my closet is the perfect white blouse. You can never go wrong with a crisp white button down and denim! It is such a classic and timeless look. This Nili Lotsn white button down from Intermix was a really great find! Add a pair of killer shades like these So Real Dior and the right bag to accent the look, like this one my Chloe Drew bag and you’re ready to take on anything!

I wore this outfit running around San Francisco yesterday! One of my appointments on Saturday was a very much needed hair appointment for a Kerstaste treatment on my hair. It generally lasts 4-6 weeks and helps seal and repair your split ends. I highly recommend Sarah at Zindagi Salon in San Francisco. My hair needs a lot of TLC after bleaching it so much! After this treatment, my hair feels like silk :)

When I want to dress up an oversized sweater, like this cozy grey one from Aritzia, I’ll pair it with leather leggings, like my favorite ones I’ve got on here by Rag & Bone and a scarf, as I did here with this one from Club Monaco. My go-to shades at the moment are Dior’s So Real sunglasses.

Zara has an awesome collection right now and I fell in love when I saw these lace up flats, especially in this gorgeous hue.
