    Multicolor Striped Blazer

    BLAZER: Anthropologie (still available in store)  |  JEANS: Asos  |  T-SHIRT: H&M  |  BOOTS: Circus by Sam Edelman  |  BACKPACK: Sole Society  |  NECKLACE: souvenir from Hawaii           This blazer was one of my birthday presents this year that I picked out for myself.  I’ve been wanting a striped blazer for so long.  I love the colors in this one.  It’s also really lightweight so it’s easy to wear.  I think striped blazers are really fun to style.  They can spruce up so many outfits.  I could pair this with a skirt, shorts, dress, etc.  I decided to wear it with my mom jeans because I…

    Loverbeauty Waist Trainers

    Loverbeauty Neoprene Sweat Waist Slim Shaper Shorts           Hey guys! Today I am talking about Loverbeauty waist trainers.  I know there is a time in almost every woman’s life when she can use one of these.  There are different types for different occasions.  Loverbeauty has so many options of styles and they come in different colors as well.  You may be going to some sort of event where you have to dress up and want your waist to be more smooth.  That’s what I would wear one for if I was to wear one.  They seem very convenient for the kind of dresses that are made of…

    Ruffled One-Piece

    SWIMSUIT: H&M  |  SHORTS: Zara  |  SUNGLASSES: Zero U.V.  |  EARRINGS: Kate Spade  | BEACH BAG: Bath and Body Works (gift)          I got this swimsuit about a month and a half ago from H&M.  I fell in love with the fabric and style.  I actually bought it in a small and had to return it and get an extra small.  It’s only available online, but it is so pretty.  I’ve been looking for more one-piece swimsuits because I feel like they are more comfortable than bikinis.  The only thing that kind of bothers me about this suit is that it is too high-cut, otherwise it would…

    A Day in Santa Barbara

    DRESS: See You Monday  |  BAG: T.J. Maxx (similar cute ones)   |  SANDALS: Forever 21  |  NECKLACE: Made myself, supplies from Hobby Lobby  |  HEADBAND: H&M (similar)  |  SUNGLASSES: T.J. Maxx           My husband and I took a little day trip to Santa Barbara yesterday.  It’s only an hour and a half from Los Angeles and we haven’t really spent much time there.  When we came to California on vacation several years ago we visited a beach in Santa Barbara.  I’m pretty sure that’s all I had done there.  I’ve been wanting to go back just to see the city and explore the area.  I have to…

    Day Trip to Solvang

    TOP: Lulu’s  |   SKIRT: Lulu’s  |  SANDALS: Forever 21  |  BAG: Coach  |  SUNGLASSES: T.J. Maxx            I’ve been wanting to return to Solvang since we moved to California but we haven’t really gotten around to it until now.  Last time I was there was almost 5 years ago.  It was raining and cloudy, not the best day.  It’s a little over 2 hours from Los Angeles, good for a day trip.  I love European inspired towns.  This one is Danish and every single corner of this town fits that theme.  If that’s your thing (like it is mine) you should really check it out sometime.…

    Road Trip Outfit

      TOP: H&M  |  SHORTS: Target  |  SCARF: H&M  |  CARDIGAN: Forever 21  |  SNEAKERS: Target             This past two days were spent in Big Sur.  We drove to Monterey on Friday and got back home in L.A. on Saturday.  We left at 6am Friday just to ensure we had enough time to stop at all of the fun places. We have been several times before so it was plenty of time for us.  If you have never been, I recommend spending at least 3 days on this trip, especially if you are going to stop at State Parks.  I might do another post with…

    4th of July 2020

      TOP: Freshman 1996  |  SHORTS: Target  |  NECKLACE: Shein  |  BAG: Coach  |  SNEAKERS: Target  |  SUNGLASSES: Zero UV  |  EARRINGS: Local Eclectic            I’m sure a lot of people had a bit of a strange Independence Day this year.  I did too.  I normally go to the beach or on a boat and see a big fireworks display, but not this year.  All of the beaches in Southern California were closed because of Covid.  It was a real struggle finding ways to celebrate and have fun.  Since I don’t really have friends or family in California to celebrate with it was just me, my husband, and puppy.…

    Big Bear in the Summer

    TOP: H&M (still available in stores)  |  JEANS: Asos |  BAG: Walmart  |  SUNGLASSES: Zero U.V.        This past weekend we went back to Big Bear Lake.  It’s one of those places that i’ve wanted to bring my future dog to.  Now that I have one, we can take him.  It’s a little mountain town, surrounding a lake in southern California.  We have been there twice before, once in winter and once and once in fall.  It’s nice because the weather actually changes there so if we want to remember what seasons feel like, we can go.  There are a bunch of hiking trails around the lake and in the mountains, a cute downtown with shops…

    First Day of Summer at Kenneth Hahn Park

      TOP: Thrifted (Acemi)  |  JEANS: H&M  |  SNEAKERS: Target  |  BACKPACK: Ted Baker London  |  SUNGLASSES: Zero UV (similar)           Today my husband, puppy, and I went back to the Kenneth Hahn State Recreation Area to hike some of the trails.  Last time we went there we did everything else.  Check out my first post if you want to know what else there is to do.  We thought it would be a fun thing to do on the first day of summer.  It’s not warm enough to go to the beach.  It was pretty crowded because of Father’s Day but it was still super fun.  I wore this top that I thrifted.  I picked…
