Today was one of those days where I had nothing to do but errands. A load of them. But that’s no reason why you have to wear sweats. (Ahem… lady at Starbucks, put on some real pants!) Listen, I am all about comfort, and I’ll rock a good sweatshirt and yoga pants now and again, but there are other options that make you feel just a tad more acceptable to the rest of society. Because, let’s be honest, you never know who you might meet while your getting gas. (Ahem..hot guy at the Chevron Station, stop smiling at me and just ask me for my number!)
So today I threw on my favorite cowboy shirt. I love the red and blue together because it always makes me look bright and fresh. I paired it with my Jolt stretch denim jeans, and a pair of moccasins my mom got me years ago. No jewelry other then my everyday watch and bracelets.
No need to take the time to wash and dry your hair. Instead, rinse your bangs, blow dry them the way you like, and throw the rest up in a cute ponytail. I kept my makeup simple and just added a little powder, blush, liner, and mascara.
Just a few extra minutes of morning prep make you feel fresh and confident all day. Find your “go-to” shirt and jeans, and rock that pony baby! You’re cute!
We all do it even if we don’t think we do. We dress to impress… other girls. Because honestly, boys don’t know the difference between skinny jeans or boot-cut pants. Shiny black leggings or matte spandex. Black close toe pumps or navy blue open toe pumps. But, other girls do and we LOVE it. And I’m gonna go ahead and say, I love looking at other girls. I want to see what everyone is wearing. Not to judge, but to get great ideas. And there are some sassy, fashionable, great women out there. Just yesterday I was having lunch with my friend and there was a super cute table of girls who were all wearing long striped skirts and light knit sweaters. I was totally inspired when I got dressed today.
I had this long stripped maxi dress that I wore all summer and this off the shoulder white sweater I got from Forever 21. Wasn’t sure it would work, but sure enough, it turned out super cute and hippie chic. It’s a great way to turn your summer clothes into an outfit you can wear all year long. I paired it with my favorite owl necklace and few other random accessories.
I had fun wearing it out too. Even got a few girls “checking me out”. So hopefully I passed along the inspiration. Keep your eyes peeled, you might get some great ideas while your getting your coffee. You’re cute!
I went to see “Being Marilyn” this weekend, and I was so inspired by Marilyn Monroes style. Specifically Michelle Williams as Marilyn. She was effortless, but also so glamorous and fabulous. Timeless, really. Marilyn Monroe was sexy, classic, and impossible NOT to look at. She possessed a passion and energy that, combined with her beauty, attracted everyone that crossed her path. And Michelle Williams embodied her so perfectly.
I am so tempted to bleach my hair white blonde and rock this style. Because, after all, living a fearless life is what it’s all about. Right? Would you rock this style? I bet you would look cute! Love you.
Oh shit… I love a good pun. Almost as much as I love going to a dinner that my ex-boyfriend is going to be at. Nope. That part was a lie. However, when this situation presents itself, it’s imperative to LOOK HOT. So last night, I had to make it happen. We were meeting a bunch of friends at a casual Brazilian restaurant in Los Feliz. So I needed something super cute but casual. Here’s what I came up with.
I’m super awkward at taking full body pictures. But, I think this outfit worked out perfectly. I went with a really feminine lace top from Nordstroms Bp. It’s sexy but conservative. Under, I wore a nude tank. Paired it with my favorite Jolt jeans from Nordstroms online, and my vintage Fry Boots.
I kept my makeup simple but pretty. I did a gold eye (True Gold - Bare Essentials) with my favorite black liner (Smashbox liquid black liner). My blush was a mix of some generic bronzer from CVS and Benefits Bella Bamba super cute pink to make me look fresh and young! My lips were put on after this picture was taken, but I went with my favorite bare essential color Kanani!
If you are in this situation, it really doesn’t matter what you wear, as long as you are beaming with confidence. It’s not gonna be easy, but remember you are fabulous. And of course, cute! Love you.
Seriously. I am currently obsessed with this nail color by Essie called “Fed Up”. Not only does the name explain my current feeling about boys, but the color is a perfect nude. Unlike most “nudes”, this one is not too pink or not too white. It’s just right. I love a short square clean nail that goes with everything!
Don’t get me wrong, bold colors are fabulous. But when you are in the mood for something simple, clean, and chic… get “Fed Up”. Sexy.
Glasses are nerdy and so damn chic. Don’t be afraid to rock the four eyes! I think when it comes to glasses, it’s worth it to spend money on frames that fit you perfectly.
These are my “L.A. Eyeworks” Frames. I love the split frame, with the tortoise on top and clear on bottom. They are the perfect balance of dorky and sleek. Who doesn’t love a cute dork? Make sure you go to a great shop that will take their time with you to help you find the perfect pair. Contacts are great, but frames are even better. You’re cute!
This is the season to buy gifts for other people. But don’t feel bad if you buy yourself a few too. As long as you are smart about what you buy, you might as well treat yourself to a little something. So, find the good knockoffs and look fabulous this holiday season!
My Anthropologie style necklace:
Found this piece at Nordstroms -BP for $20 bucks. It’s chunky, colorful, and unique. No need to spend 100+ at Anthropologie! Pair it with a white tee or with a strapless holiday dress. Love it!
My Michael Kors Watch Substitution:
I can not afford to throw down $250 for a watch right now. But I am in love with Michael Kors boyfriend gold watch. So I found this one at Nordstroms - BP for $18! I love it. It comes pretty big, so I got it sized. But it was well worth it. I get compliments on it all the time.
Anyways, I hope this inspires you to go out and find some awesome knockoffs. Because it doesn’t really matter how much you spent, it’s how you wear it. Rock your style with confidence. You’re cute!
