Continuing with my holiday inspired outfits! Usually around the holidays, I'm all about shiny, sparkly, brocade, etc.....and really this skirt is perfect! I love the asymmetrical hem and the intertwined peacock colors. The skirt is such a stand-out piece that I thought it would be best to keep the rest of the outfit black to make it really pop! I really never wear that much jewelry, but I'm always about pieces that make a statement, like this black pearl necklace. It's actually one extremely long necklace that I randomly twisted around a couple of times to form knots and such. I think it keeps them from looking too perfect and stuffy!

Hey everyone! I hope you all survived Thanksgiving and Black Friday and what not! This is what I decided to wear for my Thanksgiving celebration. I was feeling a little Blair Waldorf inspired and VERY festive. Can you tell?
Even though it's still quite warm in OC, it's cool enough to start incorporating scarves. I'm completely in love with this Emma scarf from a new LA based online store, From Dylan. It's extremely soft and i love the houndstooth print, which also comes in yellow and coral! I literally just want one of every scarf on the website now that the chilly weather is kicking in! Definitely check them out while you're doing all your online Christmas shopping!

Can we just talk about how much I adore this dress? I got this Lovers and Friends "Cutting Corners" dress sometime during Summer and have been enamored with it ever since. Dressed up or down, this dress is such a head turner, with its perfectly placed cut-outs, striking red color (my favorite!), and the fact that it's perfectly twirl-worthy. I took this dress with me on my trip to Paris during July (picture post to come?) and now every time I put it on, I'm reminded of frolicking around the cafe lined streets of Paris....Can someone send me back please?
Talking about coffee, if you follow me on Instagram, you'll know how much of a coffee addict I am. My absolute favorite place to get coffee these days is Portola Coffee Lab in Costa Mesa. It's so rare to actually find a place where you can sit down and enjoy a cup of good coffee...that's actually in a ceramic cup! If you're ever in the area, I definitely recommend checking it out!

Happy Monday Everyone!
I actually don't wear a lot of black normally as I'm really all about that color, but sometimes it's nice to mix it up for a change. I absolutely adore this top from Club Monaco (last seen here)! I love how the purple velvet polka dots add texture and dimension to an otherwise simple blouse.
Even though it's still warm enough to wear shorts here in Southern California, I've started adding richer colors and heavier textures into my wardrobe that are more Fall/Winter-like. For this time of year, I absolutely adore jewel tones and more chunky textures like tweed and some distressed denim.
What are your favorite trends for Fall?

The perfect bikini.
I've been a big fan of Triangl swimwear for a long time now, so you can imagine how thrilled I was to get one of my own! I chose to get the classic Chloe bikini in "Indiana Ice." The bikini is made of neoprene (a.k.a. wetsuit material) and is a lot more comfortable than I expected it to be. But lets talk about fit--when I was ordering my suit, I was really worried about how the sizing would turn out. Generally I'm always an XS in everything, but after using the live chat feature on the Triangl site and looking at the size chart, I opted for an XS on the bottom and a Small in the top. It fit perfectly!
Needless to say, I'm in love with Triangl! Now I just need one in every color! :)
