Having A Cargo Moment

Hello loves!!

I'm sorry for the lack of posting the past few weeks, but life has kept me very busy! I am currently working a full-time marketing job, part-time at Free People, and trying to balance everything else in between. Sometimes I just can't find the time to get my pictures taken (or to write down my thoughts), but I ALWAYS have new pieces to share with everyone! Speaking of new pieces...

I know this season is ALL about velvet, which clearly is right up my alley... but I have also found myself having a major cargo moment lately. I have always wanted a nice cargo jacket (which I finally invested in this year), but I found this cargo vest/dress at Topshop and I am loving it. I have worn it several times as a long vest over black skinny jeans and booties, but I also love it zipped all the way up as a dress. The look is a little but edgy for my style, so I played it down with the other pieces.

I jumped at the chance to show off this amazing suede, fringe clutch (with a detachable cross-body strap) and my Urban Outfitters little black booties were the perfect finish. I know it's crazy to be wearing this in December, but up until recently it has still been really nice out here in San Diego! It actually just started to cool down, so you can expect some more layers in my next post :)

Spell Daze

Hello readers!

I know Winter is approaching, but it's still dress weather here in San Diego so I had to share another one with you guys! I just ordered this dress by Spell Designs via Free People and I am so obsessed. Of course the print is amazing (because it's Spell), and the colors are so vibrant it makes it such a unique piece. I eyed this baby online before finally pulling the trigger, and it's perfect. I love how cute and casual the dress can be with some velvet booties, and I also can't wait to throw on some heels and wear this to a Holiday party!

My Velvet Dream Come True

Happy November lovelies!!

I couldn't be more happy with all of the velvet out this season. Clearly I love the material, and I always have my eye out for new velvet pieces to add to my closet. I am definitely one for some retro velvet bell bottoms or dainty velvet tops, but this velvet mini from Free People takes the cake.

 I just recently bought this slip and I've already worn it a few different ways. It's the perfect date night dress, paired with little black booties and a colored lip, and I love it here with some mules and a denim jacket. Either way, the dress makes a statement. The bright colors made it fun to pull in a long blue necklace, and the sheer material was perfect over a nude slip.

London Town

Happy Friday!!

This week has been crazy busy, and this weekend will be the same, but I wanted to share a few of my London photos and talk about the amazing trip I had. Mostly about the shopping of course... So if any of you find yourselves in London soon, I hope this gives you some ideas!

I am lucky enough to have traveled to Europe several times before, so this trip was actually my third time in London. I had not been to Europe until college when I studied abroad. I lived in Northern Italy for 4 months and I traveled to many other countries on the weekends. This is when the travel bug bit me and I became obsessed with seeing new places and exploring new cultures. Traveling truly does make you realize what a small space you occupy in the world and how many new places there are to explore. Last summer I headed back to Europe and took a road trip around the Continent for 5 weeks. This experience was one I will never be able to beat. I filled a huge photo album with pictures from this trip and I find myself going through it every few months and having the biggest smile on my face. How lucky am I to have had such am amazing experience (not to mention I shared it with one of my best friends).

Now back to my London trip...I had an opportunity to take this trip and I took it in a heart beat. I have so much love for this city and all of its treasures. The nice thing is that at this point I had already done almost all of the touristy things in the city, so I was able to really play the trip by ear. I didn't make too many plans before I left and when I got there I grabbed a map and just went for it. Sometimes that is the best way to travel!

One day I made my way to Oxford St. (a very popular shopping street) where I spent hours in Topshop, Zara, and a few smaller stores. I HIGHLY recommend checking out the Topshop on Oxford St. if you're ever in the city! I also did some shopping along King's Road in South Kensington, which is a super cool area to explore. The neighborhoods around the street are really nice, and the street has some great shopping! Of course I found the Free People pop up shop (which is by far the cutest store I have ever seen), and I also found the biggest Anthro ever!! Both of those streets were amazing, and there were also some really cute shops in Shoreditch where I was staying, but my favorite shopping by far was in Camden.

Camden Town is filled with all kinds of markets. There are many souvenir shops, shops with insane store fronts, and a huge market area filled with leather, jewelry, and vintage goodies. I actually spent two days in this market. I found the most beautiful jewelry, a leather bag, new leather boots, and some awesome gifts for my boyfriend. By these markets there are also a ton of food booths with food from all over. I loved this area and could spend days shopping around here. This place is a MUST SEE!!

Besides all of this amazing shopping, I had a great time eating some English food, drinking cider, and the exploring the famous Harry Potter studios!!

I hope you enjoy a few of the pictures I included from these adventures, and if any of you get a chance to see this amazing city, do it do it do it!!

Fall Finds


Hello loves!!

The last few weeks have been so insanely busy for me and I have had no time to share some of my new pieces, but I am definitely going to get back to my regular blogging schedule asap. Since last time I posted I accepted a new job, went to London for a week long trip, and returned to San Diego and worked a week at the new job. The new job is a full-time marketing position at an awesome company right on the beach, and it has been so exciting to jump into my career. But, don't worry, I didn't leave my Free People job. I couldn't say goodbye to such an amazing company (and amazing girls), so I will still be working there on nights and weekends! I know...having two jobs (and blogging) will keep me super busy, but I think it will also keep me productive! Well, enough about the job stuff.. Let's talk about my trip to London and all of the shopping I did...

I will be posting later this week with some photos from my trip and I will discuss some of my favorite shopping spots in the city, but for now let's focus on this little corduroy dress that I am obsessing over... Of course I spent hours shopping around in the Topshop on Oxford Street in London (those of you who have been there know exactly how insane this store is). I know we have Topshop in America too, but the stores in the UK have so much more product (plus dj's, a restaurant, and the entire shoe line, all inside the store). I found this little dress and I knew I had to have it. I LOVE this deep red color for fall, and I am also a sucker for corduroy. I paired the dress with a simple little white tee, the cutest leather neck-tie from a local brand, and my black Urban booties. I can't wait to layer a chunky sweater over this dress, or pair it with a long sleeve blouse and some tall boots. Bring it on, fall!

Graphic Tee Goodness

Hello everyone!!

I'm sorry this month has been lighter on posts, I have been so busy and am not finding as much time for pictures lately. I have been able to keep my Instagram up to date with various style posts, but the blog has been more difficult to keep up. However, I definitely will be picking up the pace in the next few weeks because I already have so many fall looks to share with you all.

I am a sucker for a good graphic tee. I love the vintage look of this "The Who" tee. I searched for the tee at several Urban Outfitters locations before finally just ordering it online. I knew I wanted to pair it with a high waisted skirt, and this corduroy one was perfect. I love the tucked in look so that the details of the skirt can still be seen, and I threw on some gold jewelry to add some interest. Add some booties and you got yourself an edgy, stylist summer look, and when it cools down a cargo jacket will be the perfect addition to the outfit.

Seattle Style

Hello readers! 

Just wanted to share a few pictures (as promised) from my Seattle trip. The scenery was so beautiful, full of luscious green nature and blue skies. The weekend was filled with farmers market goodies, exploring every part of the city, and boating around Lake Washington. It was so nice to be able to wear a sweater and pants around and feel like fall is actually upon us. We also went to a music festival in the city one day and got to see The Weeknd perform (along with a few others)! This was my second time visiting this lovely city (and my best friend who lives there) and I will definitely be back for more. If any of you have the chance to visit I highly recommend it!
