Weekends Are For Traveling

When life gets stressful and a little too pushy, take a mini-vacay.

The month of November challenges me to stay mindful of everything I am thankful for.  This week I am thankful for the constant beauty surrounding me, my amazing friends and family, and God’s grace.

What are you thankful for?

Yes we can, Halloween edition.

Like every other fashion enthusiast on this planet, I love a good Halloween costume.  However, this year was a little tricky.  Drowning in work projects and busy schedules, I just couldn’t find the time to DIY my life away.  So after a few nights spent searching hashtags, my wardrobe and Pinterest, I came up with this.

Rosie the Riveter…. Beyonce style 😉

You can never go wrong with an iconic costume idea.  And although, I didn’t have time to create a perfect backdrop – I took advantage of chalkboard paint.

What were you for Halloween?

Weekend vibes

I’ll admit it.  I’m a sucker for a comfortable weekend outfit.

After a long week at work, I am constantly digging through my closet for the effortlessly comfy pieces.  Since it’s still pretty warm in Arizona, a kimono is my go-to-gal.  They are lightweight and the perfect third piece ( I firmly believe in the third piece rule.  ALWAYS wear a third piece, guys).

Fall means football

Fall means two things for me…. Fashion and Football. I am so blessed to live with one of my best friends (in a super cute condo, might I add) AND support our boyfriends together at our Alma Mater-Arizona State University, Go Devils.

As much as I love my girly little numbers I’m a sucker for a sporty (and sassy) look!  After 3 long seasons, Erin and I have pretty much mastered this style…

Here are my favorite basics for every season, paired with my customized jersey (obvs) ….

1.  Water is a MUST & totally fashionable in my book.  These games last almost 4 hours, and the $9 soft drinks start to get old (well expensive) after a while.

2.  Scarves are lifesavers when it starts to cool down –  if you’re worried about how to style it, I would suggest an infinity scarf (thank me later).

3.  Converse are comfy and classic.  End of story.

4.  I live and breathe a good cross-body, and the Marc by Marc Jacobs “Natasha” is heaven.  Just enough space and sass, all in one.

5.  Theres nothing, I repeat NOTHING I hate more than freezing on cold bleachers.  Keep your long locks warm with an oversized beanie.

6.  I will profess my love for Paige Denim sometime in the near future, but the “Verdugo” ankle skinny is my jam.

Happy football season, lovelies 🙂

Fall has arrived… sort of.

Besides the fact that I live in a city that decides to be well over 100 degrees for 5 months out of the year, my closet is SO ready for Fall. Waking up to a timeline of all things New York Fashion Week – for the last couple of days – has left me dreaming of chunky knits, boots and scarves – until I realize I’m in Arizona where the fall weather won’t exist until mid-October.  So in lieu of dark denim and leather jackets I have accepted that I will just have to live with embracing a fall color palette instead.

Typically, I’m all about the neutrals (black, grey, white). So I try to step outside of my comfort zones with colors that compliment my skin complexion. Hues of green have always done it for me, and why not spice it up with an accent color pump?

Don’t let the weather stop you from doing your thang.
