Faux in February

Jacket on sale! (similar) | Brandy Melville Top | Asos Denim | NastyGal Booties (sold out, similar) | Jimmy Choo Bag | Pandora Rings

I bought this jacket for New York, and I seriously didn't expect it to get cold enough here in the bay to rock it, but it did. It's been mostly pouring but when it's not and the sky is almost clear - it's freezing! Okay, so 55 F isn't freezing, but for Cali it is.

I love, love, love this jacket. It's light but warm. The faux fur vest layer is detachable and the outer layer is so soft and breezy.

Also, great news! I'm taking my parents on a vacation and going to Hawaii (again) in 4 days! Right now it's supposed to be rainy almost the whole time we are there so lets hope the weather report is wrong!
XOXO

Nordstrom Winter Sale Favorites

Free People Dress (full blog post on this dress here

Nordstrom is having their winter sale going on so if you haven't already, it's time to snag some of those pieces you've been eyeing over the last few months! Even though it's a winter sale, they have a lot of great items on sale that are perfect for transitioning into the warmer months. I've rounded up my favorites below (and pretty much everything is under $100)! I'm especially loving these booties (they are just like the ones I currently own and go with everything), these lace-up sandals (perfect for a vacay getaway) and these gorgeous earrings. Happy shopping!

Dusty Rose

Free People Dress | Vest from Kitsch Couture (similar) | Kendall and Kylie Booties (similar) | Michael Kors Bag

My sister found this gorgeous dress for a potential tropical vacation that may or may not happen someday, so I had to borrow it for the semi-warm heat wave that briefly passed through Cali. I thought the rosy purple color was just so perfect, especially when paired with similar color family neutrals like warm and pinkish nudes. Of course it was not warm enough to don it alone so I threw on this lovely vest I've been saving.

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!

Never Mind the Bollocks

NastyGal Top, BackPack (sold out, similar here and here) and Booties | Express Denim | Quay Sunnies | Buxom Lipstick

Here are some pieces I bought for my NY trip, at least some of the warmer weather type pieces that is! Mostly I bought big coats and fancy dresses. I was even going to wear this look with a mint faux fur coat and sequin pants instead of a sequin bag - which I LOVE by the way!! NastyGal is also offering it in black too! I feel like all of a sudden I'm really into backpacks and am looking at getting a silver one on Nordstrom too. I love my new booties (been in sore need of new black booties for awhile) because they're slim around the ankle and go so perfectly under all my skinny jeans. Usually I'm struggling to decide if I should tuck in my skinny jeans or roll them up.

XOXO

10 Spring Accessories Under $100

1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 | 10

It's kind of hard to believe but winter is quickly coming to an end and spring is just around the corner (yay!). The easiest way to transition your wardrobe is to start with accessories (less overwhelming that way). I already own many of the pieces and love them. And they're all under $100! XOXO

My Valentine

NastyGal Dress | Jessica Simpson Heels (old, similar here and here
Him: Ralph Lauren Shirt and Shoes | Hollister Denim

Oh, Valentine's Day. I've always been a little skeptical about Valentine's Day, but I never could help getting caught up and hoping for a surprise each year anyways. I especially loved the excitement of getting a Valentine's Day gift from my crush in high school/college, or waiting to see what kind of goodies were going to be brought to class to be passed around when I was even younger and Valentines were mandatory.

This year, my boyfriend Davor surprised me with three dozen roses before I left for New York, which as you guys know, I did not actually end up going. So instead we were able to spend the weekend together and make some new plans! It was so fun shooting these pictures together and I'm happy to show you guys the few shots in which he wasn't cracking me up too much :) I love how he makes me laugh all the time but let's just say it's not my best angle.

I hope you all have a wonderful Valentine's Day! (And don't forget it's Taco Tuesday and Discount Tuesday at the theaters too - if I come across as high maintenance, well I'm not!)
XOXO

Feelin' February


The weather kind of warmed up - at least it appeared so since the sun finallllllyyy came out and so I had to bare my legs since they were kind of suffocating under all my layers the last week or so. (You wouldn't believe how much lotion I had to pile on.) I wore my new sweater from NastyGal on top anyways since I'm usually colder on top than the bottom.

I picked up some lemonade at my new favorite burger place, Super Duper Burger - though I gotta say their fresh strawberry shake beats the lemonade by far!

BTS: Why I Didn't Make it to NYFW F/W 2017

At the airport on our way to New York...(Outfit details: Rockland luggage (also recommend these options here and here that comes in a set of 3) | BB Dakota jacket (sold out, but similar here and here)

Yesterday my sister and I headed to the airport for New York Fashion Week (NYFW) and we were so excited! We couldn't wait to be in New York, see all the shows, and meet up with friends.

Unfortunately, we didn't end up making it. Since social media tends to only show the glamorous side of traveling, I thought I would share a behind-the-scenes look at what happened yesterday and why we weren't able to make it to NYFW.

Cozy Blue Cardigan

Outfit details; Nasty Gal cardigan (currently on sale--over half off!) | Turtleneck dress (on sale!) | Joie over-the-knee boots | Prada Bag | Sonix Shelly Phone Case (also love this pineapple one)

You can see the last remnants of my trip to Hawaii in both my phone case and my nails. I am sad to say I came home to about 2 days of cloudy weather and then nothing but incessant rain since. But there is still something I will never get tired of during winter time - cozy layers. I fell in love with this cardi from Nasty Gal as soon as I saw it online and I've already worn it so many times! This is actually the outfit I wore to pick up my boyfriend from the airport almost a month ago and I got a lot of weird stares haha... a little too dressy for the airport but who cares :P

I'm off to New York on Wednesday for NYFW and still in the process of last minute packing since I'm waiting for like half of my luggage in the mail! Wish me luck!

P.S Nasty Gal is having a huge extra 40% of sale right now and it ends at midnight so I definitely recommend checking it out!!
XOXO

Gifts for her: 
1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 | 10

Gifts for him:
1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 | 10

Can you believe it's already February?! Time is flying by! With Valentine's Day just around the corner I thought I would round up some gift ideas! If you are on a budget this year, coupons (#2 - gifts for him) are always a great gift since you can really personalize the gift and create some fun memories! The Amazon echo dot is also budget-friendly and pretty useful to have. My parents have one and they use it all the time. And of course, you can't go wrong with some flowers and chocolate!

Do you guys have any special plans for vday this year? Any other fun gift ideas I left out?
XOXO

Work Out Ready


There's something about a cute workout outfit that helps get me motivated to exercise. With my recent trip to Hawaii and upcoming beach trips, I've really been putting in the effort to make it the gym more...which also means I've been in the need for more work out clothes! I recently received my first box from the fitness clothing subscription service Ellie.com and I am loving all the goodies.

Subscription boxes are always so fun because it's like Christmas every time you receive a box. February's box included these Marika tek leggings and sports bra, Balance collection tank, Bally's foot roller and jump rope. The leggings are soo comfy...seriously my new favorite pair of leggings. And I love how the work out items match so it makes it easy to throw together.

Another amazing factor is that you get all of these things for so cheap! Only $49.95 for everything! I also got this awesome Swell water bottle, which you can snag too if you sign up today on their site! #LoveEllie #Sponsored

XOXO
