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!
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!

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!

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.
This weekend was crazy busy and filled with art & theater! (So busy that I forgot my camera — tears! — so you’ll have to bare with my iphone quality pics above!!) Inspired by Fall, I wore a flowy tunic dress with shoulder cut-outs and accent sleeves. I love the coral color because it pairs well with neutral makeup and the soft browns of my shoes / bag. Even though my dress is a solid color, I felt that the flowy sleeves were statement pieces themselves, and opted out of much jewelry! I kept the bling to my rose gold rings and the gold chain of my purse. In these pics, I’m sporting strappy sandals, but switched those out for dark tan heels at night!

Happy Sunday beauties! I had the best weekend sipping PSLs with besties and going to the farmers market and playing with puppies! It was a simple weekend of little pleasures, but those are seriously my fave! I’m anticipating a serious case of the #MONDAYBLUES mañana after this peaceful little perfect weekend.
Today’s ootd was Free People inspired but on a total Forever 21 / Target budget (WINNING!). I’m always trying to branch out and find fun bohemian pieces on a budget because I’m otherwise known to go overboard at Free People or Planet Blue << these shops are my weakness! This week, I rediscovered my love for Forever 21 & Tarjay Boutique and embraced fashion on a budget!

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:

◊ Necklaces – Leola Lace ◊
◊ Cloth Bracelet – Anthropologie ◊
Maxi dresses are my go-to outfits! They are so comfortable, easy to wear, and can easily be dressed up or down. Today, I rocked my new printed maxi with my cheetah clogs – going for a print on print look. Since, my outfit was so loud, I toned down my accessories by wearing a simple gold necklace.
