Halloween Festivities

Happy Halloween!! I hope everyone pulled out a costume today, even if it was just a shirt. In the mood of the Halloween spirit, I decided to share with you some festive decorations in my house and other things that remind of Halloween.

Travel Hungry

My life has been so busy, filled with so many activities and obligations. At times like this, my body is just itching to get away and relax! As traveling seems to be all I can think about, here are some cool pictures I have taken of places I've been the past two years.

Fun Friday Favorites

It finally feels like summer is gone, well sort of. This week consisted of clouds, cold weather, drizzling rain, sunshine, clear skies, sweat, just about every type of weather. As I am in the winter mood, here are some of my favorite things for this weather. :) (and I just wish weather would make make up its mind and stop going crazy!)

{nice warm Alpine Anorak ~ TOBI jacket; the fur just makes me want to snuggle up!}

{My ears are especially sensitive that if my ears are super cold, I can't stay outside, even if my body is warm. Which is why I love these UGG earmuffs!}

Rain Rain Come Today

As promised, my new favorite rain boots....

I have always been a huge fan of Hunter Rain Boots, but since California doesn't even get that much rain, I have not wanted to spend that much money on boots I won't wear that often. (although I am dying for a pair!) As an alternative, I found Keds adorable new line of short rain boots. These are so much fun because it creates the vibe of edgy sneakers!

Here are the different patterns they have as of today:

Fall Necessities

Personally, I love any change of weather or season because that means shopping! New season, new styles, new clothes needed!

  1. Leather Jacket
  2. Dark Washed Skinny Jeans
  3. Something Leopard Print!
  4. Go-To Oversized Sweater (I recommend nude color)
  5. To-the-knee or higher boots with a heal
  6. Flat Everyday Boots
  7. Knit Dress (every magazine and fashionista always says to buy one for fall but I have yet to find the perfect one)
  8. Oversized Purse (you never know when you are going to want to slip off some extra layers or put more on, being a perfect place to hide these items.)
  9. Large wrap-around knit scarf.
  10. Nice Thick Jacket/Peacoat 
  11. Rain Boots

Check in tomorrow to see my new favorite rain boots!! (trust me it will be worth it) :)

Fun Friday Favorites

Hope everyone has an amazing weekend! I will be spending mine in Los Angeles with my mom and sister! :) Here are a few things I am loving right now. 

I have been looking for a perfect staple everyday purse, and of course I find at one of my favorite stores, Tory Burch! 

Yes these are super expensive and I will probably never get them, but a girl can dream right? I can just imagine these completely so many outfits!

My friend told me about a special that Bloomingdales in Stanford Shopping Center was doing several months ago and I finally went on Sunday! Now you are all probably wondering what the special event was, well its called Bodymetrics! They scan your whole body in about five seconds and get hundreds of measurements in those few seconds (amazing I know!). After that, they show you the best type of pants for you to flatter your body type. They workers at Bloomingdales were so helpful and informative. Honestly, it was the smoothest shopping spree I have gone through for shopping for jeans.
For more information on Bodymetrics click here.

My two favorite/most flattering jeans were....

Adriano Goldschmied "The Legging" super skinny

Adriano Goldschmied "The Ballad" slim boot

I also am a huge fan of JBrand jeans but since I already had a pair, I decided to go this AGs which are super comfortable!

Watch For Me

It was only last year that I became a big fan of watches. I would either forget to put one on, hate the wear one, or simply think it was a waste because I never actually use it. But now, all of these have changed! I absolutely adore watches and I am hoping for a new one!
Here are some of my favorite watches right now:

Autumn in One

Urban Outfitters sweater, Urban Outfitters scarf, Nordstrom jeans, Steve Madden boots 

If I had to put fall into an outfit, this would be it. Big over-sized sweaters are already great for fall, but this one being orange-red colored makes it perfect. And this infinity scarf matches with just about anything!

Post Sock Bun... Perfect Curls

A sock bun has made at least a weekly appearance in my life. As I just cut my hair and I am trying to grow it out, I try to keep my hair in a ponytail or a bun, making plenty of opportunities to rock the sock bun! Sometimes however, after a long day with a sock bun, I want to put my hair down for a night out. But I don't worry about enough time to be able to straighten it or properly curl it, because it already creates perfect curls!! Here is what to do after a sock bun... 

{click here for how to do a perfect sock bun!} 

1. unroll your hair and release the sock

2. you can leave it in a perfectly curled ponytail or continue on

3. take your hair out of the ponytail and let those curl go!

4. to get rid of the crease in my hair, I like to fasten the top of my hair with something to hide it

Stripes and Bows

H&M top, Nordstrom maxi skirt

The beginning of the week consisted of extremely hot weather! High nineties! Although it started cooling off later in the week, it still inspired me to wear some yellow. Warm weather always puts me in the mood to throw in some bright yellow, which I think makes an outfit more lively.

Fun Friday Favorites

I have had a recent obsession with leopard print, as you probably have seen from this Friday and last. I actually used to be not against, but not very fond of animal prints. I would find myself naturally straying away from them, but now it is the complete opposite! I love how this jacket contains the leapard print, yet it isn't "in your face". It is subtle by using dark colors. This jacket may be going on my wish list for Christmas this year... :)

Leopard Zip Jacket

On a girlier note, this dress?? Ahhh!! Sequence! Not only does it have the ultimate girl favorite (sparkle), it also has a backless back. Together, what girl wouldn't dream of wearing this dress?

Bits and Pieces

Fall is here (even if it doesn't feel like it)! It's always a bitter sweet time for me. It's sad that summer is ending, but the fall brings a unique feel! To me, the fall means football games, coffee, hoodies, and new trends! Here a few of my favorite fall things. 

{love dark nails for the fall}

{warm coffee on cold mornings- J for Jodie}

{autumn leaves} 

{cozy sweaters}

{football candies by far my favorite sport's season}

Check in tomorrow to see my Friday Favorites!
