Laidback Vibes
I am so fortunate to be living in Southern California.  To be able to wake up to sunshine 350 days of the year and enjoy summer weather in the winter, definitely puts a smile to my face.  I mean, who would complain?  This outfit has been pretty much my staple for the past month.  I have been a repeat offender…#guilty.  These are all timeless and basic staples I think every girl should have in her closet.  It’s easy to mix and match with other things, dress up or down.  For a day to night look, swap your sneakers for your favorite heeled bootie and throw on a bling statement necklace and BOOM … you are ready for a night out.   Happy Thursday!

Baby It’s Cold Outside

Ah, I love shopping for baby clothes!  I always gravitated towards baby girl clothes because I thought they were so ridiculously cute.  Plus, I related to them more since I didn’t really grow up with boys.  However, now that I have a precious baby boy, shopping for boys are equally as fun and exciting.  Here’s a cute idea for cold day out for an adorable little baby boy.  I mean, how cute is this?  My son definitely has baby swag, he dresses better than his Dad… haha.  I’m finding myself shopping more for my son than myself.  When I enter a store, I head straight to the baby section.  Times have definitely changed, but I love it.  I’ll be doing more baby outfit posts in the future.  Stay tuned!

Life has totally changed ever since my awesome son came into my life.  Mommy life is dope!  I mean, I don’t get as much sleep and I’m in my PJs all day, but I wouldn’t change anything for the world.  I also have only 5 minutes to get ready to go out, so it’s been quick, easy, and simple outfits.  I’m loving this sporty look.  Sweater, midi skirt, cool sneakers, beanie, sunglasses, and of course a cool backpack instead of a diaper bag.  It’s all about being comfy now for me.  You can easily turn this outfit up with a pair of boots and a leather moto jacket, oh and don’t forget a fuchsia or bright red lipstick.

A Different Day, a Different Bootie

Booties We Do Adore

There’s no denying our love for booties! It’s the must-have staple for Fall. These booties have been in heavy rotation for me in the last month or so..…siiiike! I wish I owned all these beauties. They are so fun to dress up or dress down for any occasion. Which one is your favorite?

A Little Sequins Never Hurt Nobody

RLRB how to wear a sequins skirt day to night look

Do you have that one article of clothing that you love but feel like you can only wear it on special occasions because it’s “too fancy?”  For me, thats anything in my closet that has sequins.  Sometimes you got to just not care, think too much about it, and make that decision to rock it.  Why not?!  I mean, life’s too short to not look or feel fabulous everyday, right?!  I decided to wear this sequin skirt and dress it down with just a plain ‘ol gray tee from James Perse and black booties from Jeffery Campbell.  It’s the perfect mix of casual/cool and sparkly/fun!

Hope everyone has a fabulous week! XO

Without a doubt, I have always been a huge fan of yellow. With Fall in the air, mustard yellow is the perfect transition from Summer yellows to Fall yellows. I am also currently obsessed with distressed, ripped denim. In my opinion, the more holes, the better. Whether it be boyfriend jeans, or skinnies, there’s something about the edginess of the jeans that just makes an outfit that much cooler. Since there’s always sunshine here in SoCal, I thought this outfit is a perfect one to transition from Summer to Fall. The heat has finally subdued and I can finally wear jeans without feeling sticky. Plus, the holes in these River Island jeans give you some ventilation. There’s a bunch of cute styles at Zara too. To top off this look, I chose a bright red lipstick from NARS for a pop of color. I mean, you can never go wrong with a bold red lip.

Happy Monday!

Friday Eye Candy

Haven’t had an “Eye Candy” post in awhile.  So here ya go!

This Eye Candy edition is specifically Milan Street style. I love European style sooo much! It’s so effortlessly chic and fabulous. The messy, un-done hair paired with simple statement pieces, definitely makes European styles my favorite.

Happy Friday!
