Cat in the Hat
I’ve been wanting to don this cute cat ear hat for the blog since I got it for Christmas from my best friend Emily! It’s super adorable and matches a simple vintage look like the one I’m donning today =)
Cat Ear Hat was a gift | Forest Green Sweater & Camera Bag from Urban Outfitters | Mustard Blouse & Knee High Socks from American Apparel | Sam Edelman Booties from 6pm | Skirt from Nasty Gal | Sunglasses from ASOS
Rock of Ages
Faux fur coats of all different colors are my newest obsession. I wish I could bring them all on my trip since I know I’ll be freezing my butt of in Europe! Boy did I take advantage of Nasty Gal’s Cyber Monday Sale with this coat… I think it’s my favorite coat as of today! I feel like I belong in the Rock of Ages in it (in a good way, haha!) I wanted the similar pastel palette one they came out with too! What did I wear this snazzy outfit to today, you ask? To to opthamologist! Now back to packing (and sneezing because of all the dust, ugh!)

Yay my musical smiley face top from Joyrich finally came in the mail and I’m totally in love with it! I found out yesterday that the owner is not much older than I am… makes me feel like I really gotta step up my game in life! haha. I wore this to a mini get together with some of my favorite people before I say adieu to to the good ole USA for the next three months! Ahhh I’m getting so anxious for Europe!
I don’t think I realized how obsessed I’d be with my Madrid Wool Hat from Nasty Gal. I feel like I could pull of my pajamas as long as I have this hat on. Oh but I don’t want it to outshine these amazing shorts—YES that’s chain fringe, and it’s wonderful! (and maybe a little too fun to play with…) I know you’re thinking it must have cost me a fortune, but the most delightful thing is, I got them for free at the Iron Fist Sample sale while volunteering! Ahhhhh! And don’t clothes feel so much better when you haven’t paid a penny for it? I can’t thank Michelle enough for letting me volunteer! <3 The sequined-cross blouse I snagged during Cyber Monday on Nasty Gal, which is the best day invented since Christmas. Ah, deals!
What We’ve Been Waiting For
Falling asleep to the sound of rain is only my second favorite thing next to waking up to the sound of rain. It’s so soothing I never want to get up! This is the weather I’ve been waiting for! It’s like autumn never showed up and winter came in full force (well, full Los Angeles force… no snow or anything, haha) Time to pull out the chunky scarves and warm cardigans again, yay!
So my boyfriend and I have been planning our 3 month Europe trip and have a general idea of the countries we want to visit, although we are going to have to knock some out. Here’s what we’ve come up with so far: ireland > scotland > england > the netherlands > germany > czech republic > austria > hungary > switzerland > france
I’m so incredibly excited! Does anyone have any suggestions of cities we MUST see or even can skip over? Or even countries?
Back to the Start
There was a spike in temperature in LA yesterday, 81 degrees! Not horrible but enough to put on some shorts with a sweater for just-in-case. It’s been awhile since I’ve worn this beautiful knit cardigan. I love the mix of colors in it and I wish I had more items that were the colors of each of the flowers! The key to coordinating with such a colorful piece is making sure you reiterate the colors in it. In this case, I’ve got my lavender shorts, turquoise hair scarf, and orange JC Heels. If you look at each item individually, it’s interesting how your eye is drawn back to that same color back in the cardigan. O__O
The Oxblood Trend
Oxblood is the color of the season! The color is deep and rich, making any oxblood wardrobe an elegant and sexy one ;) I have yet to build up my oxblood collection but I’m itching to do so!
Late to the Party
Weekends are no longer lazy outfit days anymore since daylight savings has come around. I’m working hard to post more for you guys!
Yesterday was Tavi from “Style Rookie“‘s party for Rookie Magazine’s 1st Yearbook at Space 15 Twenty! Although it was incredibly chilly (yay for actually fall weather in LA!) today I decided to finally put on my little black dress for the party. This amazing skater dress is definitely more revealing than I’m usually comfortable with wearing but I tried it on at Topshop when I was in NY this past June and fell in love! I’ve been waiting for the right occasion to wear it (definitely not at work, haha!). Oh and notice these ombre tights? I know, they’re amazinnnggg!!! I actually had someone ask me where I got them =)
Earlier in the day my boyfriend and I went to the Stanley Kubrick exhibit at LACMA and it was absolutely amazing!! If you are a fan of Kubrick and in the LA area, I highly suggest you see it! The following is a photo of some costumes Vogue designed for Kubrick’s “2001: A Space Odyssey”. Kubrick wanted everything in his movie to be designed so that it would be plausible to exist in the time era of the movie, hence Vogue designed the costumes. Pretty amazing stuff!
Kleur was at the Rookie Event tonight as well! They do amazingggg nail designs, but alas I didn’t feel like shelling out the moolah to get my nails done. One day though, one day!!
