Cable Knit & Statement Boots

Cable Knit & Statement Boots

Happy New Year! Welcome to my blog... 4.0? I can't actually remember how many incarnations my blog has gone through. The last one lasted about 15 months and as the first order of business of 2019 (I'm talking literally 5 minutes after the ball drop), I spontaneously decided to change everything up. I felt inspired from meeting and shooting with the talented and adorable Gabby in Orange, CA. I forgot how fun it can be to create. I feel excited again. For the shoot I wore a UO mock neck cable knit in two different outfits. The older I get,…

Fall Blues

Fall Blues

It's been a while! Recently I have been going through some life changes and adapting to them is taking all the energy that I have. I’ve been trying to do more and think less. I’m learning that instead of doing things when I feel like them, I should just go ahead and start doing things that I know to be good for me. One of these tasks is of course blogging. The creation of every single blog post on here has brought me joy. So I put on a new navy blue blouse that I got from a Free People sale,…

Timeless Polka Dots

Timeless Polka Dots

There is no doubt that polka dots is one of the trends that has stood the test of time, and it's definitely not going out of style any time soon. I can prove its timelessness because in this post, I'm sharing two polka dot dresses that I purchased ten years apart. Yep you read that right! The first one is a Betsy Johnson dress that my family got me in a vintage shop when we traveled to Japan in the summer of 2008. I adored it, but always thought that I needed a special occasion to dust it off. So…

Outfits (& Musings) of the Week

Outfits (& Musings) of the Week

Last week I took on the "ambitious" project of taking and outfit of the day every day. Even though outfits are not the most consequential subject in the grand scheme of things, committing to doing anything can be difficult, so I'm proud of myself for actually going through with it. Here are my outfits and a little snippet of each of my day:  Monday - Coral Floral I've featured this exact outfit before in this post and I still adore it (shop the shoes here)! Mondays are gloomy so I wanted to tackle it with some color that hopefully brightened…

Two Affordable Dresses

Two Affordable Dresses

It officially feels like summer! One of my favorite things about summer is definitely the ability to throw on a dress and just head out into the sunshine. While I've always been a believer in investing in high quality pieces of clothing, it is definitely not practical to never indulge in some fun fast fashion pieces like these two affordable, yet completely adorable dresses I'm featuring here. I'm not a big fan of Forever 21 and H&M, two of the most affordable and trendy brands out there, but one store that's totally underrated (in my opinion) is Target! Every time…

A Desert Getaway at Holiday House

A Desert Getaway at Holiday House

I hate being in the heat, but love a good California desert getaway for some reason. On my first vacation on my job, I went to Palm Springs. During this long weekend, we spontaneously booked a night at Holiday House, a boutique hotel at the center of town, and it was such a great little break. We stayed in their smallest room type - "Good" - but it was still spacious with a comfy king sized bed. From clean white tiles to a mini Jeff Koons, the room has really tasteful and modern decor. Toiletries? No other than one of…
