This dress by For Love & Lemons, with its bright color, fun print and lines.

These shoes, by Stella McCartney intrigued me. I saw them on actress Emily Ratajkowski and had to have them. I have to say that I love them more and more and find myself constantly putting an outfit together with them in mind.

These shoes also give this look the perfect mixture of cute & girly with a bit of edginess. It can be fun to pair unexpected pieces together. My Celine bag completed this look.

game day style

» October 11, 2015








Tee: Junkfood | Denim: AG | Flannel: Brandy Melville (similar)| Bag: Givenchy | Shoes: Converse | Sunglasses: Ray Bans

Whether you’re at the stadium, a sports bar or at a friend’s to watch the game, you want to be causal but still cute on game day, right?

Junk food makes the cutest team tees and sweaters like the Niner one I’m wearing here.
Sorry to those who are non-Niner fans! I’m Bay Area born and raised so naturally, the 49ers have always been my team :)

Converse are my game day go-to as a classic and comfy sneaker and still very cute. I always love throwing a flannel over my waist, like this one from Brandy Melville, just in case it gets cold later on. That way I don’t have to lug around a jacket! I also like to pair my outfit with some ripped denim, like my favorites here by AG, for a not so basic look.
Luckily, I can fit all of my game day essentials in this Givenchy bag ;)

So which team are you rooting for?

Though I absolutely love dressing up, sometimes I simply feel my best in a pair of great fitting denim and a tee.

These Levi’s from Le Tote couldn’t fit more perfectly and are so comfortable too, that I even wear them for road trips (#lifeunlimited)!

My top is by Sol Angeles. I love the fit and feel of this sweater. Sol Angeles is one of my favorite brands for classic tees and sweaters. Their pieces are so effortless and very Californian.

These booties from Club Monaco are my current go-to, especially with any denim.

Inside out Halloween Costume idea

» October 8, 2015







26-inside-out-reviewIf you’re not familiar with the Disney Pixar movie Inside Out, it is a must see, no matter your age!

I fell in love with the heartwarming film, so this Halloween, I decided to collaborate with Fashion by Ally and Design by Brianna ( squad goals! ;) ) to create DIY for inside out. I dressed as one of its characters called Disgust. This is a super fun and easy DIY costume, as I put it together here.

The signature purple scarf I’m wearing is from Nordstrom Rack and I cut it smaller to tie around my neck. I lucked out and picked up the dress from the Topshop/Trend section at Nordstrom.
I was able to find the green tights, belt and wig from a local Halloween costume shop.

Of course, purple shoes would have more in character, but I was not able to find any, so I sported my Vince boots instead. I’m also wearing my Gucci cross-body to add a bit of chic to this costume.

Happy Halloween from Inside out!

Dress: French Connection | Shoes: Stuart Weitzman (lookalike steal) | Bag: Saint Laurent (lookalike steal) | Lip color: Sephora  cream lip stain “Marvelous Mauve”

With wedding season very much in full force as we make our way into fall, it is time to rethink the little black dress for your wedding guest attire.

Long ago are the days when wearing black to a wedding was a “no-no”. Now, black is quite possibly the chicest shade to don, especially when the big day occurs during the autumn and winter months or is an evening affair.

This gorgeous black lace dress by French Connection couldn’t be more perfect or romantic for such an event. Add Stuart Weitzman heels and YSL bag and you’ve got a very timeless and chic look.

This dress does run a little small, as many French Connection pieces do, and if you’re familiar with the brand, you’ll know that it will fit very nicely in all of the right places. This black lace number is ultra flattering and I’ll definitely be wearing it for upcoming holiday parties as well.
