Lou & Grey 

I wanted to share my at home milk frothing process and latest obsession: at home cinnamon hemp milk cappuccinos! This is my favorite afternoon snack and is now the ONLY way I’ll take my coffee. You’ll be shocked how easy it is to froth hemp milk!

Also… I am simply loving this new sweater from Lou & Grey! Check it out in the photos below! It’s super soft and just warm enough to cuddle up in but still look put together… I’ve even worn this to work!

How to make my fave coffee ever:
1. Pour a small amount of milk (however much you would normally want in your coffee/cappuccino) into a small jar w/ lid
2. Close the lid and SHAKE! for 30 seconds
3. Place the glass jar into the microwave for 30 seconds, without the lid

That’s it! It comes out super frothy… like magic! Pour over your coffee or espresso shot, and spoon the froth onto the top to make it look extra pretty before you enjoy! I like to top mine off with some cinnamon, and if I really feel like indulging I add some stevia.

*Just a note, this tends to work best with low fat milks like 2%, almond milk, or hemp milk.

Weekend Wardrobe: Hooded Fur Coat

This weekend’s look is a little confused because, well, I was a little confused. There was finally a forecast of rainstorms and showers for soCal, which made me so happy! I love the fresh smell of a rainy weekend, and was looking forward to brunching in my warm winter ware. But try as it might to rain, the sunshine prevailed for the most part, leading to fashion improvisations on my part. I ended up with the unconventional look of sandaled feet and a fur-lined face–a look that I’ll definitely replicate going forward (no sweaty ugg feet for me, thx)! Made brunching outdoors on an overcast day super comfy and still glam. I know this isn’t a look you’re likely to see on the east coast, but it was perfect for a more chilly, still chic Cali weekend!

Shop the look:

Ran into this fabulous chica while brunching at Mattei’s. Her brunch outfit looked super comfy but also so stylish! She was celebrating her birthday and just looked so happy with her oysters and champagne and the beautiful ambience! The best part of her outfit? The striped top is actually her boyfriend’s sweater — she “made it work” because she got cold! WHHAAAAT. That’s the sign of a true fashionista… making it work, no matter the circumstances. Her pants? Fabulous, and from Splendid. Get them here or here.

It’s so appropriate that my dress is made by Staring at Stars because that’s basically all I did last weekend! I kid you not… I stared at the stars, basked in sunshine, and drank and drank wine w my bests! So much fun! I love this dress because it’s long but the slip is super short so it’s still really flirty while appearing long and proper! Downside, it’s tight and not ideal for days of drinking and eating cheese… But then again HAY! Who cares.

Ran into this girl wine tasting in central cali today and was totally taken by her cute classy getup. Her colorful kimono stands out against her all black outfit, pairing well with her big glasses for a very glam effect! Personally, I’m always about the dresses when wine tasting, but I love this take! Glam, comfortable, but still light & fun! Winning look in my book!

Sending out this inspo to all the darlings stuck in the cold this week! It’s still sunny in LA, and we wouldn’t have it any other way! With Thanksgiving around the corner, it seems like it’s only a matter of time before we stash our cut-off shorts and start nomming on the pumpkin pie. I’m lovin’ this look because it features two pieces that I knowww I’ll be wearing all winter long: body chains (YES) & kimonos (think paired over a long sleeve, under a leather jacket, or with denim tied in!).

This weekend was all about being bohemian chic. I wasn’t sure where the day would take me yesterday, so I wanted to be ready for any situation be it casual / artsy / dressy. We ended up going to a street jazz festival (artsy), followed by dinner at one of my faveee restaus (dressier), followed by game night back at home (casual). Turns out my outfit was versatile enough for all!

Since my dress has a patterned lace overlay, I decide to opt out of wearing a belt or any loud jewelry. I kept earrings and necklaces simple, then decorated my wrists with a chunky sequined cloth bracelet and a few bangles (and my Jaw Bone Up Band, obviii).

This weekend’s look:

◊ Dress – Kimchi Blue ◊
◊ Shoes – Anthropologie (forever ago!) ◊
◊ Purse – Bebe ◊
◊ Necklaces – Leola Lace ◊
◊ Cloth Bracelet – Anthropologie ◊
