PLAID IN SAN LUIS OBISPO

January 24, 2015


Good morning, Everyone! Hope you are all enjoying your weekend! 

I wanted to say a quick hello and share a few pics Emil and I took in San Luis Obispo on the way back from San Simeon. As I have mentioned in the past, Emil and I love taking these mini driving trips along California coast line. 

Since normally,  it takes about 4 - 5 hours to get to San Simeon and I am the biggest baby in the world and become pretty restless after spending even 2 hours in the car, we always make a few stops along the way. A coffee and a quick walk in Santa Barbara, lunch in San Luis Obispo ( an incredibly charming town, by the way ) not only breaks up the monotony of driving but also gives us a chance to explore a few wonderful coastal towns. For example, this time around, we spent a few hours walking around San Luis Obispo and I have to say, it's one of my new favorite places ever! So, if you ever decide to make this trip, I definitely recommend making a stop. Oh, and you have to check out Scout Coffee on Garden Street! Best coffee I ever had, hands down! :) 

MALIBU CASUAL & PROENZA SCHOULER BUCKET BAG

Good morning, Everyone! Hope your week is going great! 

This is yet another one of my outfits comprised entirely of new and old favorites. Most you've met before, some more than others:) Yep, I'm talking about the Isabel Marant boots I've been wearing religiously. But honestly, I am obsessed!!! Not only do I love they way they look, they also happen to be really comfortable, which makes it even more difficult to wear anything else. 


RUN AWAY WITH ME

January 19, 2015


Good morning, Everyone! Hope you all had a wonderful weekend! 

Since I've been getting quite a few reader emails asking about my fitness routine, I decided to take this opportunity to talk to you a little bit about what it is that I normally do to stay in shape. 

First and foremost, I prefer to exercise outside because when it comes to working out, scenery is very important to me. Looking at the same four walls at the gym makes my workouts feel like a chore, but being outdoors, always makes working out feel fresh and new. 

PLEATED PINK

Good morning, Everyone! How is your weekend going so far? 

Ok, so I'll be the first to admit that wearing sandals smack in the middle of winter is a bit insane! In fact, when I think about January appropriate footwear, sandals are pretty much the last thing that come to mind:) Yet, I find myself in this particular dilemma every year. That very familiar place where things I feel I should be wearing in Winter and things I actually can wear, given that it's about 80 degrees outside, don't exactly match. Sure, I've been trying to keep up the pretense that it's still Winter in LA by layering and wearing boots with pretty much everything, but as temperatures continue to soar, I am faced with the inevitable. Sandal weather is here:) 

Not that I am complaining about this! I'll take all the warmth and sun I can get! Maybe I am not quite ready to give up on cozy coats, sweaters and boots just yet...


BLACK & WHITE

Good morning, Everyone! How is your week going so far? 

When it comes to little black dresses, or in this case, little black and white dresses, I always look for just a tad of drama, like an interesting shape, fabric or cute detailing. So naturally, when I spotted this number from Maje, I just couldn't resist. A perfect combination of sweet and sexy, I just love the way the super short hemline is balanced out by the delicate chiffon top! 

How about you guys, what do you look for in a  little black dress? 

CITY LIGHTS

Good morning, Everyone! How was your weekend? 

I wanted to take this opportunity to share a few pics of an amazing faux fur jacket I found on a recent trip to Zadig et Voltaire store in Malibu. I've been looking for a cute faux fur option for a while now, and from the moment I saw it, I knew I finally found the one. Warm, cozy and slightly oversized, I can't get over the gray-to-black ombre and of course the hood. Lucky for me, and I can't believe I am actually saying it, but there it is, the weather's been a bit chilly lately, which normally puts quite a bit of damper on my mood but not lately. I suppose this fuzzy wonder might have something to do with it:)! I guess it really is true what they say..."There is no bad weather, just bad clothing" :) 

PIECE DE RESISTANCE

January 11, 2015


Good morning, Everyone! Hope you are all having a wonderful weekend! 

My newest shoe obsession arrived yesterday morning and from the moment I put them on, I knew it was a match made in shoe heaven! You know me, I am all about details and this pair certainly has them in abundance. Can't really decide what it is I love the most about them, the crystal embellished back, the asymmetric toe or the way the crystal accents shimmer against the deep black suede... Most likely it's the combination of all of the above, but whatever it is, I haven't been able to take them off. So, I suppose I should warn you right now, that there is a really good chance you'll be seeing quite a bit of them on this blog. Hope you don't mind:)
