Styling the Golden Globes + Sneaker Talk

It is amazing how things can change so quickly — one day average, the next day beyond imagination.  This past Friday, January 8th to be exact, I received an email on my way to the hairdresser.  An email from a lady I’ve never met, but with a very intriguing subject line: Golden Globes Intern.  Needing two red stoplights time to reply {and control my excitement}, I was set to intern under stylist Kate Young and Caroline DeJean.  It was an amazing experience.  There are so many truly talented and genuine people that I’ve been so lucky enough to meet.  It’s a new year, and I already have the Golden Globes under my belt.

Side note: I was so excited to embrace the comfy sneaker/slip-on trend and purchased a classic leather pair of Vans late Friday evening — knowing they would be the perfect thing to wear for my busy day helping style for the Globes. Ironically the “comfy” sneakers turned into major blisters. Buyers beware.

Winter’s Best: Over-the-Knee Boots

ootd, fashion, street style, fall style, skinny jeans, over the knee boots,Winter is here! Can we all please get a cheers (and a clink of hot cocoa!) Most of you, me included, are probably out finishing holiday shopping and trying to get all the last little goodies on our shopping lists.  I always have such a hard time shopping — not that I can’t find anything for my friends and loved ones, but because I like to shop around first.  I like seeing what’s out there and being confident that it is the perfect gift.  When looking for gifts my motto is to find something they love but wouldn’t normally buy for themselves on an average day.  I’m not going to reveal any of my fabulous finds incase any of the lovely recipients are reading, but I recommend to shop local, find novel gifts, and always try to avoid the lines!

On a side note — if you are shopping for any fashion girls, over-the-knee boots are having a major moment (and they are oh, so practical for chilly days!)

My Fall Go-To: Rich Hues and Heeled Booties

This past weekend I went home for about a millisecond, where I was reminded what a chilly fall day feels like. Living in Los Angeles, I don’t even bother looking at the weather app on my phone anymore.  I’ve come to expect sunny days with a high between 70-80 degrees and if in the rare case of rain, I would probably find out on social media before the thought of what to wear enters my mind.  As a result of my incompetencies with packing (I always pack an excessive amount of everything that I don’t want to wear) I resorted to wearing my sister’s clothes.  I ended up pulling a simple cashmere sweater, zippered pants in a luxurious rich green hue, and let my favorite accessories do the talking.  This has become my fall go-to outfit as of late — it is simple, chic, yet sophisticated all at the same time, not to mention very comfortable.  I recently found these low heeled booties and I’m in love — they make the hugest difference in any outfit and bonus, they give you a few extra inches!  I know I am going to get lots of use out of these suede beauties. What are you wearing this fall?

A Functional Outfit for the Girl on the Go in 3 Easy Steps

ootd, fashion, street style, tote bag, scarf, fall style, skinny jeans, booties, layered jewelry, casual ootd, fall bootiesThere’s more to life then Lululemon leggings and Nike sneakers for the busy girl on the go with this easy, yet functional outfit.  I’ve been on the run so much lately — class one moment, then off to my internship, work, and life the next.  It has been a whirlwind and from personal experience, I know that it is easy to fall into the rhythm of only wanting to wear athletic clothes.  They are so appealing — like a pair of pajamas that is decent enough for public exposure.  But after a great deal of trial and error, I’ve found the perfect outfit for the girl on the go, from clothes and shoes to even accessories and jewelry.

1. First and foremost, get an overly comfortable pair of skinny jeans (and yes, I advocate a splurge if necessary).  Make sure they have enough stretch that you can comfortably move and bend your legs in all directions, without having them be a rebirth of the infamous jeggings from the mid 2000’s.

2. Pair your skinny jeans with stylish tanks and tees preferably in a soft jersey — try to veer away from the spaghetti strap and try a sleeveless turtleneck, like I am wearing!

3. Now the best part — accessories! For shoes find a very comfortable pair of fall booties because you never know where your feet will be taking you that day.  Find a bag that is actually big enough to fit everything that you could possibly need in a day.  Mine is huge but in a wonderful Mary Poppins type way. Have fun with your accessories — tie a scarf around your bag, which can double as a warming shall and layer on delicate jewelry that won’t get in the way of any demanding tasks.

Finally an outfit that keep up with a busy lifestyle!

Bright Poppy Red

If you were to ask me the color of the season, I would say bright poppy red.  After scrolling through images of our favorite style influencers, there was not a shortage of red. This eye popping color is showing up in everything, from full ensembles to minute details, and all the accessories and lipsticks in  between.  Look for reds that are a little brighter than our favorite childhood Crayola crayon with a touch of a deep orange hue.  This color looks exceptionally great paired with navy blues and bright whites. How will you be wearing poppy red this fall?
