Everyday, My Style

Locals Only!

Hello Venice Beach vibes. Once in awhile I come across an outfit that is so me I want to dance around for days. As most of you know, I am not a big dress and skirt girl, and when it comes to going out at night, I live in cool pants and tees. Every so often a piece comes my way that stops me in my tracks, and that my friends, are these A.L.C. shorts from Shopbop. I know some people may ask why, but in person they are just oh so cool. They’re chic, yet comfy, cool girl and beach girl at the same time. In the winter I will throw on a fun sweater and my little booties and make them a bit more edgy.

Tesi tee from ALC

There is never anything wrong with a simple white tee, and I have way too many. I find at night, that they end up looking so easy and chic with just about anything. This tee is also from A.L.C. and it hangs just perfectly. It is a tad more on the expensive side, but I find that the investment is well worth it.

Johnston shorts from ALC

Two of my favorite go to lines here in Cali are Sundry and Soludos. Sundry makes the most fun bits and pieces with the cutest sayings on them, hence my favorite so far “locals only”. If you haven’t worn a pair of Soludos espadrilles yet you are missing out. They too have so many fun designs to just kick up a vacation outfit anytime.

Locals Only Zip Pouch

There is a lot of color and print here, so I simply just added a few of my favorite stackable bracelets from Gorjana. I cannot wait to wear this look over and over, as the whole vibe screams Cali to me, and I couldn’t be more excited!

Cali Dreaming in denim

Well, the weather is finally turning and the heat is rising here in NYC. I am lusting after a trip to the beach, and it looks like June may be the time to head back to Cali for a visit. One of my favorite t-shirt lines is Sundry Clothing. They always have the cutest tees that scream happiness on them. When I found this one, I immediately knew I needed to buy it. I love the ringer collar, as it certainly gives it a great 70’s vibe.

Not only that, but these  jeans from 7 for all Mankind are kind of off the charts. I am super into anything high-waisted this season, and the slits at the leg are fun and definitely set them apart from any pair that I have. If you are looking for something different this season, these are certainly it. I simply paired them with my favorite Vans sneakers for a full Cali look.

 

I usually don’t wear a ton of red, but when I find it in an accessory I certainly will go for it. This cross body bag from Topshop is affordable and the perfect pop of color this outfit needed. The size is great too, it is just big enough to hold everything I need for a night out. I am also into layering as many bangles and bracelets as I can these days. A simple rule of thumb, more is better, and you can mix them anyway that you like.

There is no shortage of great denim for Spring, and some of my favorite jeans are below! Make sure you add a white pair this season!

Good vibes for the holiday madness
Everyday, My Style

Good Vibes for the holiday madness!

Wow, I can’t believe that this is the final stretch of holiday madness. Not only have I yet to finish my shopping, my entire extended family is here in Las Vegas. Part of our tradition is to bake homemade Croatian nut bread, attend a UNLV basketball game, and head to our favorite family run Italian restaurant. On top of that, we also host an annual Christmas Eve party, so it is basically a week of craziness.

Sundry holiday sweater

When I saw this Sundry sweater from Hiptique, I knew I had to have it. Not only is it soft and comfy, it is definitely getting me through this week. Their sweaters, also found at Nordstrom are always among my favorite. I will mix it up with my boyfriend jeans and some sneakers in the next few weeks.

Cat eye frames

Also, when I travel, I seem to lose my sunglasses all over the place. One of my favorite finds over the years is the B.P. line from Nordstrom. They always have several shapes, and if you can believe they are only $12.00. How cute are these cat eye frames.

white handbags

Lately, I have also been crushing on white handbags. I found this one at Zara, and again, it was under $50.00. I love to invest in one or two a year, and then for more trendy pieces I usually try and find ones that will not break the bank.

cropped checked crepe tapered pants

Hello pants! Elizabeth and James is one of my favorite clothing lines, and their attention to detail is what always causes me to purchase pieces. These may be one of my favorite finds this season from Neiman Marcus. The ruffle detailing on the top is so fun, and they will be just as great in the Spring with a white tank and sandals.

Sam Edelman boots

Also when running around all week, if I am not in my sneakers, then I certainly will be wearing my favorite comfortable booties from Sam Edelman. They make this boot every season, and once they are worn in you can wear them for days on end. Just saying, we all need a pair like this while rushing around in the holiday madness!
