OOTD | New Year, Same Shoes

Happy 2016 lovelies! ¬†It’s a New Year, but the same me. ūüėú ¬†Went for a ‘kind of’ hike up Soledad Mountain in San Diego the other day. ¬†I say¬†‘kind of’ because we drove to the top, then “hiked up” the set of stairs. ūüôā teehee

New Year OOTD

It was sweater weather.  The sun was out and the sky such a vibrant blue.  The view from the top of the mountain is incredible.  You can see the whole La Jolla coast.

I wore my favorite studded booties in tan, a black and white plaid shirt, jeggings, and light grey pull-over.

I love the ribbed texture of the pull-over. The material is so soft and warm.

Jeggings and booties

In the spirit of the holidays, I went with a dark red polish.

I kept the accessories simple with a black Betsey Johnson bow ring and small black Marc Jacobs clutch.

How did you celebrate the first day of the New Year?

OOTD | Winter Blues & Plaid

Happy Saturday lovelies! ‚̧ԳŹ ¬†Hope you are having a good weekend. ¬†It’s been wintertime bootie weather here in SoCal. ¬†I recently got this long flannel plaid hoodie from the Nordstrom Rack and paired it with suede dark grey leggings and a thick navy C & C t-shirt. ¬†The back of the hoodie is long enough to cover your bum and the material is thick enough to protect you from the slight wind chill. ¬†I love the knee detail on the leggings and the metal embroidery¬†on the booties which gives this outfit¬†a more of an edgy look. ¬†Hope this outfit inspires you!


Being normal is boring.

OOTD: Endless Summer Pastels

Slightly shy of Thanksgiving, smack in the middle of November, that California endless summer, neither fall nor winter in sight.

This weekend¬†was a beautiful 85* by the beach. Days like these remind me of why I don’t miss winters in New York. ¬†Like many¬†of you can relate, I spend the majority of my week¬†stuck indoors in an office. ¬†Yes, I am by a window, but often times find myself so busy I don’t even remember to look outside. ¬†I live for the weekend. ¬†These are the¬†few days I get to relax and do whatever I want, go wherever I want, wear whatever I want. ¬†Be F R E E. ¬†So the¬†most important thing for me is to¬†spend that time outside. ¬†Especially in days like these. ¬†Where summer continues to defy fall and the ocean breeze brings about a sense of peace. ¬†That endless summer.


Palm Trees, Ocean Breeze, Salty Air, Sun Kissed Hair.  That Endless Summer, Take Me There.


Here is the outfit that I wore to catch the Newport sunset.  It felt strange picking out shorts when just days before it felt like fall was approaching.  But the weather was undeniable.  I went with pastels Рpink and lavender Рand a large statement necklace in the same color palette.

OOTD: Blue Jean Romper

Please excuse the sleepy face ūüėī but Monday’s are always a bit of a drag. ¬†Here is an OOTD from a few days ago. ¬†Fall in California usually consists of pretty consistent 75* F degree weather. ¬†I picked this blue jean romper to wear¬†out to walk along the beach on a bit of a gloomy day. ¬†This Betsey Johnson cross-body was¬†perfect for carrying snacks and essentials. ¬†(Basically anything Betsey Johnson is always perfect.) We had a nice walk, no coats required, but as the days get shorter the nights are getting colder. ¬†Hopefully it’s not too chilly wherever you are.


Positive mind. Positive vibes. Positive life.

OOTD: Peachy Pink Baby Doll Crop Top

This past weekend, a¬†childhood friend had a fairy themed first birthday party for her daughter. ¬†She asked all the girls¬†to come dressed as fairies and all the boys to dress like Peter Pan. ¬†Being that I do not own a pair of wings, I tried to improvise¬†my outfit as best as possible. ¬†I ¬†picked a peachy¬†pink baby doll crop top, which had a whimsical feel, and paired it with my favorite white jeans. For my hair, I did two braids just above my ears to hold my hair out of my face. I took¬†a¬†flower headband, folded it in half, and wove¬†it into the braid using bobby pins to secure it in place. Unfortunately, I got so wrapped up in the moment, I didn’t get a chance to take too many photos at the party; but you know how that goes. ¬†ūüėč ¬†Hope you are having a good week!
