INSPIRATION

Inspired

{no need to pick between chic and edgy – a girl can have it all!}
{this look is all LA- beachy waves, sun kissed cheeks, and casual pop of color}
{effortless Parisian chic}
{Cutesy as can be}
{Curls worthy of Carrie – enough said}
{Backless. Silk. Updo. Berry Lips. Utterly Sexy}

Here are some things that are inspiring me on this gloomy SoCal day. These are images I’ve been collecting on my Pinterest (to which I am addicted!!!) What’s inspiring you today?

I’ve been stocking up on some yellow pieces recently, as seen here and here.  I love this Zara blazer because it adds the perfect pop of color without being too bright for the office.  And nothing looks crisp like black and white!

Found this quiet and secluded spot in Atwater (neighborhood in LA) by the tracks and had to stop and get some pictures.  And of course the serenity was short lived as the Amtrack came whizzing by!
Hope you had a fabulous weekend and hope your week is off to a wonderful start!

Pinks & Dots

Zara dress/ Gap trench (20% off thru 3/21, use code GAPEVENT), similar/ F21 tights/ Miu Miu heels/ MOMA necklace


How cute and girly is this dress from Zara? When I saw it, I knew it was the perfect luncheon/girls brunch/high-tea dress. I went to a charity luncheon this weekend and was so excited to wear my dress. Since it was a bit chilly, I added polka dot tights and black accessories.  I paired it my GAP trench coat, which looks so chic since it has pleating around the waist and comes in a pretty dusty rose color.  I also tried a new hair-do a la Betty Draper, but I’m not sure I was successful 😦  What do you think?

Minted

Blazer from Prague, similar/ Anthropologie tee/ Zara jeans/ Zara heels/ Marc by Marc Jacobs bag/ Bracelets from Gorjana, Alex & Ani

Last weekend, the BF and I took my cousin on a lunch date + rollerskating for her 12th birthday. I’m proud to say she’s a fan of the blog, so she helped style this outfit for me. Great stuff right? Also, what better way to celebrate the first day of spring than with a pastel palette. Happy spring!

I hope you’re having a fabulous Tuesday. As always, thanks for stopping by! xoxo

LACMA

J. Crew shirt, similar/ Leifsdottir jacket/ J Brand jeans/ F21 scarf/ Hue tights/ Theory wedges/ Marc by Marc Jacobs bag/ Gloves from Italy (via my sister!), similar

I was so excited to spend some time walking around LACMA – it’s one of my favorite things to do when the weather doesn’t cooperate (i.e. cold, gloomy, windy).  The LACMA “Rock” was on site, but covered up so I only caught a glimpse of it…

I hope you’re having a wonderful Monday!

Mixing it up

Top: J. Crew (wearing a XXS), similar here, Skirt: Zara, similar here, Belt: H&M (came with this dress), Heels: Pour la Victoire, similar here, Clutch: Marc Jacobs, Sunnies: Juicy Couture

I love mixing textures, colors, and patterns and this outfit is no exception.  Warmer weather always calls for mini skirts and I love the tweedy feel of this spring mini.  Thrown together with a messy side pony and painter tee, I was ready to laze away the day furniture shopping (which got a bit stressful after the 6th furniture shop!)
