Five, Fringe, Three, Two, One.

Why hello there!  I feel like it’s been forever since I have posted, although it has only been one week… That’s quite a long time in the blog world!  I’m still here though, alive and kickin’ and also getting dressed!   Let me tell you a little bit about this Alli K dress!  I got it specifically for New York Fashion Week and let me tell you, it got more than it’s share of wear time.  I kept throwing it on for everything!  Too tired to get dressed?  Throw on this dress.  Going to a party?  Throw on this dress.  Just want to be comfortable?  Throw on this dress.  I’m not kidding you, I wore it on four of the seven days I was there.  I’m sure the people I kept running into were like, “Did this chick not bring any more clothes?”  I did.  I brought clothes enough for eight days even though I was only there for seven, but when something just feels right, well… You go with it.   This dress just feels right and it’s the fringe, I’m pretty sure.  Actually maybe it’s the mesh detailing along with the fringe.  OR!  Maybe it’s the mesh detailing along with the fringe, along with the fact that it’s the most fun you could pack into a little black dress.  I dunno guys, it’s just awesome, you’ll have to get one for yourself to know what I’m talking about.  Go on now, do it!  Dress: Alli K // Top: Adeline Pour Vous Vintage // Shoes:...
It’s Fall-ish! Pt. 2

It’s Fall-ish! Pt. 2

Because one day of cookies isn’t enough.   This outfit from Alli K has single handedly made me want to move to a colder climate.  Ha!  Totally kidding.  Seriously, I’m kidding.  I love me some LA sun!  This set will be perfect for LA once the “winter” hits, you know, when it gets down in the 60s & 70s.  This outfit had me from the start, in all of it’s squiggly goodness.  Plus, I am a sucker for matching sets, and even more of a sucker for matching sets that are comfortable.  This one fits the bill and as soon as the weather got down below 80 (for the short 24 hours that it did), I threw it on faster than you can say squash bottom!  I have no idea why squash bottom, it’s just the first thing that came to my mind… Anyway, it was the perfect outfit for the day paired with my trusty Hare + Hart bucket bag.  I also have it in tan and mint, seen here & here & also 1 million other places, and they have become my go-to bags for running around.  They fit everything!  And I always get so many compliments on them, and who doesn’t like that?!?   Now, go ahead, soak in the awesomeness that is me eating a Pumpkin Pie Cookie with Toasted Marshmallow Ice Cream sandwich in a killer matching set, all the while toting around my bag.  YOU ARE WELCOME.

It’s Fall-ish! Pt. 1

It’s Fall-ish! Pt. 1

Let me tell you a little story about how this post was going to be about my outfit, and this Pumpkin Pie Cookie sandwich with Toasted Marshmallow ice cream was going to be a prop… But then there ended up being way too many cute pictures of Milk Jar Cookies AND of the outfit that I had to split it into two posts!  Pretty good story right?  Too many cute pictures are never a bad thing if you ask me, and neither are too many cookies! If there is such a thing… Well my friends, let’s get down to business here, shall we?  It’s fall pretty much everywhere.  Everywhere, that is, except good ol’ Southern California.  We’re still in the 80-90 degree range over here, making getting into the fall spirit somewhat of a challenge.  What is fall without a good cozy sweater?  A slight chill in the air?  Or how about a little pumpkin flavored goodness?  No, I’m not talking about your average, everyday, run-of-the-mill pumpkin spice latte here,  I’m talkin’ about the good stuff!  Like pumpkin bread!  Or pumpkin pie! (Maybe not for another month, but still.) OR PUMPKIN COOKIES!   Despite the lingering heat, Milk Jar Cookies has found a way to bring the fall to us in a more Southern California appropriate way, through an ice cream sandwich of course!  Toasted Marshmallow ice cream sandwiched between two freshly baked Pumpkin Pie cookies? Uhmmmm… Yum!  And quite pleasant to eat in the heat.  Not bad Milk Jar Cookies, NOT BAD.   Of course, to really get into the spirit of things I had to throw on an...
Doing my hair in NYC.

Doing my hair in NYC.

Sorry, not sorry for the overload of hair whipping pictures, but FINALLY!  We’re to the hair!  It feels like I have been waiting to share this forever!  If you follow me on Instagram, or even better, on Snapchat, you have seen bits and pieces of this already.  While in New York I had the pleasure of getting my hair done by THE hair color master, Carlina Ortega at Rita Hazan Salon.  Although I was only in New York for a short week, she was able to squeeze me in and give me the rainbow-unicorn-princess hair of my dreams!  And yes, it’s totally worthy of the title I just gave it because LOOK AT IT!   Carlina used a mint green, bubblegum pink, royal blue, and a bright yellow to add some fun into my soccer-mom-haircut, plain brown hair.  She also did an allover brown to give my hair a little boost of shine.  Et voilá!  Rainbow-unicorn-princess hair!  I literally can’t help but move and shake my head whenever I look in the mirror, or when I walk by a window… or when I look into my phone camera just to see my pretty hair… Don’t tell anyone about that last one.  You would do it too, I promise you.   If you live in New York or just happen to be visiting, I very highly suggest going to see her.  That is, I highly suggest you go see her if you want to be stuck looking in a mirror because you love your hair so much.   Seriously though…  P.S. Did you happen to notice that I am wearing...
Leather Shorts + Long Legs

Leather Shorts + Long Legs

Back at the leather shorts game over here, despite feeling a bit sketched out about them in general.  How perfect are they with nude sandals though?  This outfit all started with wanting to wear this white collared top again, but this time tied up!  I knew high waisted shorts would be perfect, but denim would be too predictable.  So out came these suede babies!  Besides, I need to get some wear in with them before the actual heat starts, as leather shorts on a hot day are NOT ideal.   After loving the shorts and top together, I wanted something to really lengthen my legs.  Nude is the best way to do just that!  These sandals wouldn’t have worked with this outfit if they weren’t nude, because platforms in general don’t elongate the leg.  Throw in the nude straps though and there you have it.  Legs for days!  Well maybe that isn’t true, but they still look longer than normal.  Pop on a cute little bag, I prefer one that spices the outfit up a bit (as always).  Colored tassels?  DUH.
