Weekend Wardrobe: Cool Tones

IMG_9048There is no other way to spend a casual, sunny and cool Sunday, than at brunch with friends! Since I was feeling a bit lazy from the busy weekend, I went for a more laid-back look that would also work well with the weather. This outfit embraces a casual cool vibe with the neutral colors, cuffed denim jeans, and white flowy kimono. I had to obviously top the outfit off with a few of my favorite accessories – reflective sunnies and my TanneryLA bag!

Hope everyone had a great weekend, and is refreshed for another week ahead! Cheers!

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.

IMG_8627This is my attempt to try to stay cool, yet edgy chic, while existing in Los Angeles. Also, the front tuck – business in the front, party in the back – is one of my favorite ways to style a top and pants together. It is a way to define your waist, without making it the focal point. To add, the shorts used to be pants, but I decided to cut them because I couldn’t find black cutoffs that I liked…DIY fact.

Shaggy Moth Cardigan

I got this shaggy cardigan vest from Moth! Anthropologie carries lots of their looks, and I’m super into it. I love this shaggy vest because it’s so fun and artsy and totally makes an LBD that much more fashionable! If you look closely, the cardigan literally looks like a shaggy rug (which is why I’m obsessed with it, obviously). Plus, the back drapes open and is super fun and flirty for wearing with jeans and nothing but a bandeau!

Weekend Wardrobe: Black & Lace

Happy daylight savings weekend! I’m so excited for the time change – now daylight will last longer, meaning after work hikes and dinners served outside on my sunny patio! This weekend’s look is perfect for those long sunny days that turn into night. Black mini + detailed blouse, and you’re good to go!

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!

Recently, I have been steadily increasing the amount of sporty I incorporate into my outfits. Adidas and Nike are my sportswear brands of choice, because I love how their pieces are so versatile and timeless. Whether it is pairing Nike shoes with ripped jeans and a tee, or a black/white Adidas tee with a blazer, there are a plenty of ways to be stylish, yet comfy and sporty!

My most recent purchase was my Adidas crewneck, and boy, am I OBSESSED! I wish I could wear it everyday… (“Lizzie McGuire, you’re an outfitter repeater!” – Hope you’ve seen the movie, otherwise, this is awkward). Due to the abnormal gloomy LA day, I paired the crewneck up with leggings, and Classic Adidas (obvi!).

I am curious to see how much I will spend on sportswear by the end of the year…

Yikes!

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.
