Weekend Recap: Desert Relaxation

Hi friends! Sorry I have been MIA for the past week. I went to visit my parents in Arizona for a much needed long weekend. It was so nice to just stay in pajamas, hang with my family, play with the pups, and just r-e-l-a-x. 

Highlights from the weekend were: 
1. Major family time- With a pretty aggressive travel schedule beginning for work, I was so thrilled to unplug and spend time with my parents and grandparents. Sitting around the heat lamps at night, going out to delicious meals, and just laying in bed together was pure bliss. Oh yeah, I even gave my mom a Poshmark tutorial and got her first few listings up, I think she's officially addicted.

2. Memory Lane- Going through childhood arts & crafts, old photos, and toys was so fun. I'm so grateful to have parents who have held onto such great memories for so long! They even had a bag full of greeting cards from the time I was born, to the time I was bat-mitzvah'ed--13 years of cards?! Yup. I can't wait to show my children these things, and do the same for them. 

3. Shopping- Some of you may have seen my tweets, but I scored some MAJOR bargains while in Arizona. About ten pairs of shoes, two winter coats, and a slew of other goodies all for about $200-#winning.

I ended my trip by driving my old SUV back up to San Francisco. Yes, 12 hours, 760 miles, and a whole lot of music. It wasn't the most enjoyable of days, but I am glad to be back home safely and with Tula....for now. Heading to Seattle Thursday! NBD. ;-)

Purple, Python & Faux Fur

 Jeans: Marshall's // Blouse & Vest: TJ Maxx // Earrings: Nordstrom // Shoes: Asos // Bag: Michael Kos via Poshmark

Hope you all enjoyed your weekend! I was able to just relax, run errands, and most importantly watch my 49er's WIN! I can't explain to you how stoked I am to have my team in the Superbowl! AH!

I wore this outfit a couple weeks back, and although boho is not usually my go-to style, I love how this came out. There is just something about tonal looks that I am currently loving (as seen here and here). 

Happy Monday!

Happy Birthday Fashionablee Me

Skirt: H&M // Sweater: Forever 21 // Shoes: Aldo // Necklace: DIY // Watch: Michael Kors

Today marks a very special day for Fashionablee Me! It's our very first Blog Birthday (and a little visit from Tula)! I can't believe a year has passed, as it seems like just yesterday I was taking outfit photos on my iPhone and created Fashionablee Me's first post. I feel like I have learned so much, and come a long way in one year, and I know this is just the beginning. Blogging is everything I have wanted: being able to express and evolve my personal style, meeting some amazing bloggers who I now call my friends, really challenging myself to get out there, and so much more.

I am so happy to have you all on this journey with me, and I am beyond excited for what the next year has in store for me (and what I have in store for you!).

Thank you so much for always supporting me! Pop champagne!

Happy Friday, and Go Niners!! ;-)

Winter Mint

Jeans: TJ Maxx  // Sweater & Earrings: Vintage from my mom // Shoes: Target // Bangles: J.Crew via Poshmark // Ring: Chloe Rose Boutique // Scarf: Asos

First off, I want to welcome my new Prada sunnies to my little fashion family. I scored these babies for a ridiculous price on Poshmark, and am completely obsessed. Secondly, for the amount of colored skinny jeans I own, I even surprised myself that I didn't own a mint pair. So on my last TJ Maxx trip, I saw this perfectly mint cropped pair, didn't even try them on, and the rest is history. I actually wish I found this style in a few other colors because I love the fit! I paired them with my coziest of sweaters, simple nude pumps, and a fun hairstyle, which had me feeling minty fresh on a cold (California) winter day. 

P.S! I've always told myself I would want to do hair tutorials(to start), and since I've been getting a lot of comments on my hair lately, I think this weekend I may try to do one, so stay tuned! :-D

Neon On Neon

Striped blouse: Goodwill // Sweater & Earrings: Forever 21 // Shoes: Marshall's // Bag: Rebecca Minkoff // Sunglasses: Ray-Ban // Rings: Asos // Lipstick: Wet n Wild

Just my kind of outfit: neon on neon, on neon. :-) It probably doesn't come as a surprise that I instantly fell in love with this comfy sweater. Not only is the color perfection, but the black paneling adds a fun detail and I knew it would add just the right amount of brightness I needed for a cold winter day. And if the sweater and tote wasn't enough, I added yet another pop with some fun pink lipstick and a little sparkle at my feet. 

 I hope this outfit helps brighten your Monday! <3

Velvet Crush

Shirt: K-mart // Blazer: Topshop // Shoes: Asos // Necklace: Poshmark // Bag: Rebecca Minkoff // Stone Ring: Chloe Rose Boutique // Watch: Michael Kors

For the winter I am totally crushing on velvet. It brings a rich, luxurious vibe to a look and is perfect for adding texture to an otherwise simple outfit like this.  Paired with my new cap-toe heels that I have been on the hunt for for-ev-er, leopard clutch and a few sparkling accessories- I am definitely feeling winter-chic. Next on my list: velvet blazer.

Are you loving velvet? If so, how are you wearing it?

My Must-Have Boots

Jeans: Forever 21 // Chambray top and Vest: Marshall's // Boots and Bag: Poshmark // Assorted Bracelets: Tj Maxx, Forever 21, H&M

Do you ever see a certain style of something and you just won't stop until you find something similar to satisfy your need? That is exactly what happened with these boots. After seeing this fly lady rock her Freebird boots, my search had begun, my Poshmark search that is! Realizing that these aren't exactly my style, I knew I wanted a more affordable option to act as a trendy piece vs. an investment piece...and it didn't hurt that I had Poshmark credit burning a hole in my virtual pocket. Lucky enough for me I came across these babies at only $30.00 and instantly hit the "buy now" button, and the rest is history. 

What was your last must-have now, won't stop until I get it, piece?

Happy Friday! <3
