Pajama Chic

Pants: Boom Boom Jeans c/o WWDMAGIC // Top & Leather Jacket: Asos (Similar) // Shoes: Dolce Vita via TJMaxx // Clutch: Vintage // Necklace: Target 





When people ask me to describe my style, minimal is never usually on that list. I love crazy prints, bright colors and pretty much anything over the top with a little funk. On this day, I decided to keep things super simple with the exception of the pops of color to really go for the minimal and chic "pajama" look.

What's better than wearing an outfit that feels like pjs to the office? Nothing. ;-)

Happy Tuesday, peeps!

Black and White

Dress, Blazer & Belt: Target // Bag: Cabrelli via WWDMAGIC // Shoes: Asos // Earrings: Rocks Box // Lipstick: Nyx Cosmetics





Life works in crazy ways. I was in LA for work one minute, and the next I was flying across the country to be with my family. I won't get into it on this post, but this past week has been so emotionally and physically exhausting that I just have to keep a smile on my face and stay positive. Smiles are always better with a little red lipstick, too don't ya think? 

I hope you are all having a great week!

Woohoo- finally a new outfit post here on the blog! I have been swamped with work and planning my trip to Bali and Thailand but I finally am feeling a little caught up, meaning more posts- yay! 

I'm super excited to start sharing all of my goodies that I was gifted from WWDMAGIC last month, so keep an eye out for a dedicated haul post in addition to pieces popping up in my outfits. This outfit I am wearing a few of my favorite items- this Jaleh Clothing blazer, ZAD tassel necklace and Mellow World crossbody bag. The blazer is comfortable, soft, chic with a touch of edge that I adore, the necklace is so fun for a subtle pop of color, and the bag I have been wearing non-stop--it's SO perfect to grab and go on the weekends! 

Hope everyone is having a great start to the week!

Asymmetrical

 Skirt, Leather Jacket & Booties: Asos // Top: Express // Bag: Alexander Wang via Poshmark // Lipstick: Nyx Cosmetics // Necklace: Poshmark 




Lately, I have been gravitating wearing more skirts then pants. I keep finding these super fun gems (mostly on Asos) so I just can't resist! This asymmetrical skirt caught my eye and I love the colorblocking- it will be great for summer for a night out on the town all the way through fall with a cozy sweater. 

On another note-- I'm going to Bali and Thailand in May! I haven't taken a big trip like this probably since high school, so it is MUCH needed. More on this soon, but if you have any recommendations for
either place I would love hear!

WWDMAGIC Recap


I am so sorry for making you wait for this update, I have been really sick this past week-ugh! I had the absolute best time ever at WWDMAGIC and have you all to thank! I felt right at home in my element and it's an opportunity that I will never forget...I really hope I can go again next season (fingers crossed!). There were so many highlights of the trip that I thought it would be fun to share my top ten moments/ discoveries with you...even though there were more like 100 top moments.


10. PJ Salvage Pajama Party: Night one was filled with wine, adorable PJ Salvage pjs, and lots of Beyonce. It was the perfect way to kick of our week in Vegas together. It couldn't have been better planned that I happen to be wearing my pug tank top that day--too perfect with my pug pjs!

9. Fashion First Aid: Because WWDMAGIC was the size of a football field, I knew I would need lots of essentials to help with staying comfortable. Cue- The Fashion First Aid Kit filled with band-aids, double sided tape, a portable pocket for business cards AND MORE, this kit was so handy! Other items I brought that helped save me: Mophie Case, Julep Blister Stick, and my DIY'ed embossed business cards!

8. Beacher's Madhouse: What's Vegas without a fun night out on the town? All the WWDMAGIC bloggers got dolled up for a wild night at Beacher's Madhouse at the MGM Grand which was seriously SO fun! Dancing teddy bears, freak show skits, and dancing on tables? Yes, please! I highly recommend a night at Beachers if you haven't been!


7. Outerwear heaven: One of the panels I spoke on was what upcoming winter trends will be hot for 2014. I instantly was drawn to all different kinds of statement coats from pastels and plaids to furs and leather! I became overly obsessed with this cotton candy style coat from Glamorous- isn't it fun?!



6. Lulumari: You all know I have a thing for bold and bright colors, so the moment I walked up to the Lulumari booth it was like the color G-ds had opened this booth up just for me. From the pops of neons to their amazing wall of bold statement necklace, Lulumari was definitely a favorite!



5. Metallics trending: One of my favorite trends that kept popping up were metallics! From this fierce Poppy Lux asymmetrical silver skirt, to Melie Bianco's wall of metallic purses, this is one trend that I am SO on board with.



4. Accessories Galore: I. love. accessories! I say it time and time again, but you can wear something as simple as bf jeans, ballet flats and a blazer...but once you add the most amazing accessories it really completes a look. I think speaking on the Accessories Trend Panel was my favorite because I got to showcase items that reflect my personal style- like this holographic neon clutch, gorgeous Lulumari statement necklace, and fun ombre sunglasses from West Coast Eyewear!




3. #SWAG: Considering I had to buy an extra duffel bag (in addition to the empty one I brought flat in my suitcase) it's safe to say we got hooked up! Thank you to all the brands who gifted everything a fashion lover could dream of! I can't wait to share everything I got with you soon!

2. Speaking on panels: I've done public speaking gigs before (Hey, PoshFest Emcee!), but being able to share my own experiences on social media, trends, and blogging really was an amazing experience. Thank you to everyone who came by the Social House to listen to what we had to say!


1. Meeting new people: By far my favorite part of WWDMAGIC was meeting the other official bloggers who are all gems! My roomie Kaelah is such a sweetheart, all the gals at StyleSmith took such great care of us, and it was an honor to meet and connect with all the brands and designers!



Stay tuned for more updates from WWDMAGIC soon! Thanks again to everyone who made this possible! XO!

Blurred Lines


Skirt: Asos // Heels: Sam Edelman via Nordstrom // T-shirt: Target // Varsity Jacket & Hanger necklace: Forever 21 // Bag: Galian NY // Pave Necklace: Gorjana Griffin // Lipstick: Bare Minerals







Hi, friends! I am finally home after a long 6 days in Las Vegas and I had the BEST time ever! I can't wait to share about my time at WWDMAGIC so definitely stay tuned for posts on my trip. 

I wore this outfit before I left and I love the mix of the casual varsity jacket paired with the sassy midi skirt and heels. I scored these Sam Edelman pumps for under $20 and am obsessed with them- the ankle straps are sexay! Also, isn't this skirt so fun? I love the large 'blurred lines' grid print and the sheer panel at the bottom really makes it unique. 

Lastly, congratulations to Nicole of Manners & Moxie for winning my Smart Couture necklace giveaway! Thanks to everyone who entered, there will definitely be more giveaways coming soon to the blog. Yay!
