IG Roundup!

Happy Halloween everyone! My sister and I just got back from Portland a few days ago and now we are in L.A for a fun holiday shoot with Bebe! Portland was absolutely beautiful and I can't wait to share some more photos from our trip. Since we have some work to catch up and I have a shoot tomorrow we unfortunately didn't get to do anything for Halloween today. But we did make it to Venice Beach for a little bit after we landed. I'll be sharing some BTS of the Bebe shoot while I'm on set tomorrow so be sure to follow along on my IG stories! XOXO

Black Lace Dress

 Outfit Details: Marks & Spencer Dress and Heels

I love a good I just couldn't resist this gorgeous lace dress from Marks & Spencer. The lace detailing and cut add the perfect amount of glamour and put a nice twist on your basic black dress. I like to stick to closed-toed shoes for classic looks so I thought these Marks & Spencer strap heels paired perfectly with the outfit (especially with the unique buckle straps!). This dress is so perfect for a date night, dinner event or all the holiday parties coming up. And the best part is you can make this look (not including the bag) for just around $100! XOXO

Cozy Chic

Outfit details: Express Sweater and Jeans

If you follow me on Instagram, you've probably seen that I'm currently in Portland and the autumn colors are in full peak right now! The colors are so vivid, it's just too beautiful. In addition to their beautiful fall foliage, Portland is famous for their amazing eats so of course we had to explore downtown for brunch! My sister and I met up with our cousin who lives in Portland and he took us to St. Honore Boulangerie and everything was amazing!! It's also around the corner from Dragonfly--only the cutest coffee shop ever! I am definitely loving Portland so far!

Easy Fall Look

This post is sponsored by Zappos!
Kensie Anorak | Brandy Melville Top | Joes Jeans | Steve Madden Bryrony Heels and Bag | Peggy Li Necklace

Today I have a casual look featuring some of my favorite 2016 fall trends! Did you know that taupe suede is just possibly the new nude for fall? At least, it is for me since it goes with everything! I actually just found both these gorgeous lace up heels and Joe's Jeans Wasteland Ankle in Jerri on Zappos just a few days before we shot this. I can always rely on Steve Madden to come out with the cutest shoes every season. And I simply LOVE Zappos since they can offer free shipping both ways so if you change your mind (any time, any day, for a full year), you can easily send them back! But of course I was happy with both my items :)

One of the reasons I always go back to Joe's Jeans is because of their wash! The fit is always on point (they work on so many different body shapes too) but I really adore the gorgeous blue shades of their denim. I used to paint a lot and the color of these actually remind me of a really rich blue I used to paint ocean scenes, called pthalo blue. 

What are your favorite fall trends?

Allure's 2016 Best of Beauty Favorites

I recently had the opportunity to host Allure's Best of Beauty celebration launch at the San Francisco Bloomingdales where I had the chance to meet a bunch of my readers and pass out awesome goody bags! It was SO great meeting and chatting with each and every one of you who came out to the event!

While we were there, I got to pick out some of Allure's Best of Beauty products so I could share my favorite ones. I'm first off so enamored with Lancome's Ultra Cushion Foundation - it goes on so light but the coverage is incredible, and it makes your skin look perfect in a second! As for the Laura Mercier Eye Color in Tuxedo, it goes on very smooth and opaque. As you've probably noticed by now, I love to wear dark eyeshadow so this color was perfect for me. The Nars body glow smells like heaven - I think it would go best on tan skin but even if you're not (like me) then it will make your skin so subtly glow-y and beautiful. I'll have to wait until I get my fake nails off to wear the polish again but I have been really craving red nails lately. And the Dior lipstick in Rose Basier is just the perfect candy pink! I love how emollient this lipstick is and it really fills in lips so easily. Also on the list (but now shown) is the Shiseido Ibuki sleeping mask that I just discussed on my blog here as well as the T3 Whirl Trio that I did a hair tutorial with here! I just love the quality of these products!!

After being wow-ed by these few, I'm definitely going out to check out some of the others listed in the Allure magazine!! And in case you didn't grab the October issue, you can check out all the winners on Allure's online boutique here!

Little Gold Dress

I don't have many photos today but I just wanted to show you all this gorgeous little gold slip dress I found on Amazon! You really can find everything there. I love that it comes with a matching choker piece! The material is soft and easy to move around in. I wore it out for a dinner date, but it would be perfect for many more occasions. I'm personally loving the slip trend but they are best worn with a sweater or jacket to dress it down so it doesn't look like you are walking around in your loungewear. But then again, the PJ look is also in trend! :)

Denim Details

California is back to it's sunny weather after a weekend of rain! The temperature is warming up again so I paired my turtleneck with some shorts and added a pop of denim to match my denim CLUSE watch. I love how classic denim is so it's perfect to have a denim watch! My favorite is the rose gold with the white dial since it contrasts so nicely with the blue, but I'm also eyeing this black and denim watch since these watches are just so perfect for Fall and Winter!

Boost Your Skin Regimen with Shiseido

Like many girls at a young age, I remember sneaking into my parents bathroom and playing with my mother's makeup. Amongst her mascara and lipstick (which was used to draw on the walls and couches multiple times-sorry mom!) she always had her collection of Shiseido products in her vanity, just as her mother did. Shiseido has been used in my family for generations, so as a longtime Shiseido enthusiast I was so excited when I was asked to partner with them on IBUKI, their skincare line designed specifically to address the unique skincare concerns of the millennials.

The Perfect Everyday Over-The-Knee Boots

Madewell Skirt (similar on sale) | Gucci Bag | Charles David Boots | Top (similar top part of the F21 F&F sale)

I am so happy California is finally getting rain! We've been in a really bad drought the past few years so we really, really need lots of rain this season. It was actually raining while we shot this so we had to be fast because my hair gets messed up from the moisture in the air!

I just picked up this Madewell skirt when I went shopping last week and I am in love with how perfect it is for Fall and Winter! I paired it with my new Charles David boots and added a pop of color with my Gucci bag. In case you missed it, Macy's is having their big (annual? semi-annual?) shoe sale where you get 40% if you buy 3 pairs or more, or 30% if you buy 2 pairs. Because I have petite calves I have a really hard time finding over-the-knee boots that will fit me, so after trying on like 10 different pairs I finally found the perfect flat pair! If I don't wear them with jeans or leggings underneath I wear them with these thicker pair of HUE knee-high socks to really make it snug. And it's great because it has a tie at the top so it helps keep them up. These shoes do run big and I am wearing a 7.5 (I usually wear 8-8.5). With the 40% they come out to just under $100 which is a total steal! I also ordered these Steve Madden over-the-knee heeled boots which also fit amazing! (P. S the sale ends tonight--along with the Forever 21 friends and family sale!)

I even found the perfect pair of flat over-the-knee boots for all my petite ladies out there and they come out to just under $100 with the 40% off! Use the promo code GREAT for the discount.

How to Style a Cardigan Two Ways

Cardigan | Bodysuit | Jeans | Bag | Flats

I stopped by Madewell the other day and couldn't believe how soft their sweaters were... and I honestly wanted to grab every single one they had! This particular cardigan stood out to me with it's versatility and so when Blovlovin' asked me to curate their shop, I thought it would be perfect to show you guys how you can wear a cardigan both casually and a little dressed up.

Comfydent Moments Part 3

With our evenings quickly cooling down I think it's safe to say that sweater weather is finally upon us! (Although with our warmer California weather, we can sometimes still get away with still wearing shorts :P ) I love sweater weather and the feeling of being warm and cozy. I was doing some shopping and running errands all day yesterday so I kept my look cool and comfy with my Hanes Comfortflex Fit Bra, Hanes Cool Comfort Panties and Hanes ComfortSoft Sweatshirt. It's always so important to dress smart from top to bottom to keep you comfydent all day long. And I just love how this pink sweater and adds a nice pop of color!

Have a wonderful weekend! XOXO

Fall Sweater Dress

Dress and Purse from Ross

Fall is here and what better way to start the season than with a beautiful burnt orange sweater dress. This dress is seriously SO 90's and so on-trend, I love it. I considered wearing it with a cool waist belt but felt the silhouette worked as is. I paired it with this suede crossbody purse I found at Ross and a few statement jewelry pieces to really complement the dress. And can you believe both the dress and bag were under $20 a piece? I always love a good Ross find! XOXO

Blush Dress

Outfit Details: Charlotte Russe Dress and Heels | Peggy Li Earrings | Brighton Collectibles Cuff

Happy Monday! How is it October?! I don't know where the time goes! I'm so excited for fall and winter though. It's such a great time of the year :) I'll be styling lots of fall outfits soon but here is a date night look I wore this weekend. I love the cut-out V neckline and the blush color of this dress. I paired it with a few accessories, but nothing too flashy since I wanted to keep the look elegant. XOXO
