Weekend Business

Levis skinny jeans | H&M blazer | Urban Outfitters chain belt | Rovimoss bag | Zara heels

It's finally the hot southern California weather that I wait for every year. (It's also Zara sale season time!) I love a good blazer that works seamlessly with dress pants for work and dresses up a pair of jeans and tank on the weekends. They're not as easy to find as you would think... and any method of somehow meshing my work clothes with my play clothes is a triple plus.

Another Year

Adidas sweater | Zara skort | Jeffrey Campbell ankle boots | Rebecca Minkoff nylon bag | Chilli Bean sunglasses

This last year... has been eventful. So many things to be grateful for. Although I'm not entirely titillated to be another year older, I'm definitely excited for what's to come. Spent the weekend in a fairly easy-going fashion: Went to the opening weekend at my fave - Annenberg Space for Photography - where I was re-acquainted with what "passion" means, stumbled across Clover which offers Health-Ade kombucha on draft (Saturday's flavor was pomegranate), and happily walked around as much as possible in my new Jeffrey Campbell ankle boots - totally heel obsessed.
A big hug and sloppy air kiss for all the birthday wishes...

A Weekend Away

Philosophy toiletries | Nike tennis shoes | Chili Bean sunglasses

Last weekend, I headed over to Palm Springs for a little last minute r&r. After a slightly rainy drive, I was giddily with Philosophy toiletries at our cute little hotel. After checking my trusty weather app, which showed an average of about 85 degrees, we decided we wouldn't be needing any sweaters on our morning hike up in the San Jacinto mountains. As we were waiting to get in the cable cars at the Tramway, I noticed signs that said "42degrees" and "no snow." Wasn't that obvious? Didn't make sense, until I realized how high up we would be going. Luckily, it wasn't tooooo bad, and I did bring a long sleeve with me, (which was actually supposed to be more for sun protection) considering we actually saw some snow up there! (Stripes are definitely not flattering sometimes). Spent the rest of the weekend soaking in the mineral spring water, to absorb as much goodness as possible... and promised myself I have to come back again soon.

Easing Into Summer

American Eagle boyfriend shorts | Zara boxy shirt | Sam Edelman heels | Karen Walker sunglasses

Just when I was easing into my summer wardrobe... the gloom sets in. Shorts were totally necessary this past weekend, only to realize how badly my legs are in need of a tan. I never actually thought I would say that...considering I'm usually the "tan" one of the group. Opting for comfort coming out of a long week, I dressed up my boyfriend shorts with a boxy buttoned shirt from Zara and a newfound obsession with lucite clear heels... and got some sun, and escaped some shadows.

DKNY blazer vest | Free People wrap skort | Chili Beans sunglasses | Jeffrey Campbell heels

There's always something to be grateful for. My sis is in town for Easter... and the weather looks like it'll be the epitome of a southern California day.
Wearing an easy knit Free People skort, which feels like lounging at home-wear but looks like something a lot more edgy. Paired with the perfect sleeveless blazer to keep it looking sharp...equipped with single button and side pockets.

American Eagle jacket | Gap white top | Alice & Olivia leather mini skirt | Chili Beans sunglasses

I've been gravitating towards camo prints and greens...in the midst of shopping for "Vegas appropriate" outfits... whatever that really means anymore. After a weekend of nonstop dancing and buffet binges, and Bieber's 21st birthday (haha!), this week is dull in comparison. I had to turn up the excitement with some leather. This leather mini skirt was so completely simple and perfect. I had already imagined it paired with buttoned shirts, oversized sweaters, and of course, white t-shirts. With this lightweight camouflage jacket, it gave off a slight military vibe that just had to be topped off with ankle boots. And what usually is just a parking lot of random helium tanks (???) suddenly became the serendipitous backdrop.

The Day is Long

Urban Outfitters Mouchette top | Out From Under ribbed flared pants | Gilly Hicks cardigan | Chili Beans sunnies

In my head, only a few weeks had gone by since my last post. It's crazy how time creeps up on your life. But I'm back. My hair has grown too fast for my liking, the bf has settled into his new place, and I've probably gotten a little too accustomed to wearing these lounge-y pants for those cold weekend mornings, and planning the rest of my outfits around them. Now that it's officially spring (?), it appears that's clearly about to change. Now it's just waiting for packages from borderline guilty binge online shopping...
