There is nothing I love more than leopard print. Along with my small obsession with sneakers, leopard patterns have always been a favorite of mine. These days between jobs and meetings, I have found myself running all over town. There is nothing more playful, especially here in Los Angeles than mixing a sexier piece with a pair of tennis shoes.
When I saw this A.L.C. leopard print piece, I knew I was in love. The satin bomber is so on trend, and animal prints are big for Spring as well. It screams fun, and can be worn in so many different ways depending on how playful you want to be.
I am loving crop tops right now, but I like to wear them mixed under a jacket or with something high-waisted. This adorable velvet piece from Bella goes great under this piece. I am usually a maxi skirt or jean girl, but I jumped out of my shell when I saw the color of this A.L.C. skirt. From a simple white tee to a beautiful burgundy blouse, this skirt will make a statement.
When it comes to handbags, the majority that I own are cross-body. I love being able to wear it across my body for the day, and then usually at night more loosely on my shoulder. This black studded bag from Clio has been in my rotation for weeks. The black leather is gorgeous and the studs add a little rock star quality to it.
And then there are these kicks. I have just recently seen all of the Reebok classics making a strong comeback. This Reebok x FACE Stockholm pair are insane, and were pretty much perfect with this fun look. Rose gold is huge right now, and is continuing on through the spring. Lets be real, these will be worn with everything!
It is that time of year when I have so many parties it is hard to keep track. For me, I am usually running from one party to the next, so I like to find a holiday look that works for both the day and night. This week alone, I have a work party in the day, a fun holiday cookie event in the evening, and the annual holiday walk and fireworks show in Manhattan Beach.
These pants from Lulu’s are perfect for the holidays. Not only do they scream fun with their wide legs and fun slits, the color is spot on for any celebration. Not only will they go great with a chunky sweater, but I will wear them with a black pump and a fun bodysuit for a fancier event.
Can we say that velvet is the trend of the season? I took one look at these Steve Madden boots and new that I had to have them. I have always been a fan of over the knee boots in the winter. The texture of these makes the whole look feel even more festive.
I tend to live in chunky sweaters during the winter. Every year Express has some of my favorites. I love the color of this one, and as the weather transitions it will look gorgeous with a pair of white jeans. Mixing up the light rose with the darker burgundy makes the look pop even more.
One of the best things about fall in California, is that the weather is just perfect for a fall weekend getaway up the coast. Every year we take a quick trip to Santa Barbara for a fun day of wine tasting and shopping.
I love a long maxi dress this time of year, and this one from A.L.C is just perfect. The cut out details are on trend, and the florals add a feminine touch.
SHOP THE LOOK
When I travel, I always bring a fun hat, and my favorite line right now is KIN / K. Their felt hats are a mix of modern luxury with a touch of cool girl vibes.
SHOP THE LOOK
The Funk Zone is our favorite place to go, as many wineries have tasting rooms in this one mile area. The day always begins with lunch and a coffee at The Lucky Penny. Their pizzas are amazing.
As the sun begins to set, we generally head back to my favorite hotel, The Fess Parker. It is close to downtown and easy to get around. Dinner is always the same. We love the new on trend spot The Lark, as it is trendy and cool.
When Sunday rolls around, we always take a quick trip to Montecito for shopping. One of my favorite stores in California is Jenni Kayne. After that it is time to hit the road down the coast of Malibu to stop for lunch at the Reel Inn to complete our trip.
