Three Christmas Event Outfits

It’s the most wonderful (and busy!) time of the year! And a majority of the time, that business sets in weeks before Christmas. Office parties, family get-together, lunches, etc.-  it always seems like there are more events than days during the holiday season!

Which all comes down to one question every time- what to wear?! Some events are more casual with your girls or family, while others require a little more glitz and glam. No matter where you’re headed these last few weeks of December, these three looks will definitely work! 

Brunch with the girls

 If you’re meeting up with the girls to clink mimosa glasses and exchange little gift, this cozy-cute look is perfect. The oversized sweater is so soft and cozy, and I love the little scallop detail at the bottom!

Family Gathering

 Christmas Eve is usually a low-key event in terms of dress for my family, so I’m always going for casual festive in my outfit choices. This look is perfect because it uses pieces you probably already have and looks pulled together.

Fall Transition

Happy happy Monday!

I am so excited for fall to hurry up and get here. Seeing my favorite bloggers + stores starting to bring out the fall trends has me dying for the weather to drop 25 degrees.

Unfortunately, we’re in that weird time of the year here in California where it’s cool and breezy up until about noon, and then it warms up in the afternoon.

So today I’m sharing my favorite transitional piece- long sleeved rompers!

They’re perfect for this time of year because they’re super versatile and such an easy look to throw together. They can be dressed up with wedges or booties and a statement necklace or dressed down with a pair of flats and scarves.

Rompers are also insanely comfy, so you won’t feel uncomfortable hot when the day heats up. I also love to throw a chunky cardigan over my romper in the morning- so cozy! I prefer my rompers that have sleeves because I find them to be more comfortable and if it’s not cold enough to require a full cardigan, the sleeve provides some coverage.

Target Fall Staples

Happy Labor Day!

Fall is approaching, but it definitely doesn’t feel like it in California yet- boo! Regardless, I’m slowly starting to build up my fall wardrobe staples.

These are simple but necessary pieces for the fall that I’ve needed to re-stock for a while. I love having fun, stylish statement pieces for fall (hello chunky sweaters + chic boots!), but it’s also good to have solid staple pieces that can be mixed with anything. We made a trip to Target this weekend to look at things for Carl, but of course we left with a few pieces for me as well! ;)

Black Jeans
  Even though we all practically live in leggings during the cooler months, it’s always good to have a solid pair of structured black jeans. They can help dress and outfit and are perfect for shorter sweaters! Mine were getting worn out so it was definitely time for a new pair and Target is currently having a sale on denim!

2017 Fall Trends

I know it’s still summer (especially here in California) but I cannot tell you guys how impatiently I’m waiting for fall to come. The seasonal drinks, holidays, decor- I am 100% here for it all. But above all that, I love love love fall fashion and I’m so excited for this year’s trends.

I’ve spent the last 4 years in the Midwest during the fall, which is definitely different that California fall. But I think that these three trends are extremely doable no matter which coast you’re on!

Statement Sleeve
This is probably my absolute favorite trend of the moment and one that will probably pop up a lot on the blog. A fun statement sleeve instantly elevates any outfit in my opinion and I love that you can get them in such a variety- off the shoulder, with cut outs or a dramatic high collar.

DIY Iced Coffee

I don’t know about you guys, but I feel like I need a coffee IV in my body for 24/7 caffeine absorption. <- not at all dramatic.

One of my favorite things about the summer is iced coffee. To be honest, I live in Southern California sooooo iced coffee is almost a year-round necessity.

I can’t even tell you how much $$ I have spent at Starbucks over the years. I’d tried to make my own iced coffee the classic newbie way- making a cup of hot coffee and adding creamer and ice cubes in it. I’m sure you can guess how well that turned out- watery, bland and undrinkable.

So today I’m sharing my go-to easy iced coffee recipe!

Once you prep, it’s the easiest, quickest drink to make before you run out the door. And even the prep is simple, honestly. So let’s get  into it!
