East vs. West Style: Holiday Hostess

Umm Christmas is next week, how did this happen? I'm so excited yet bummed all at the same time because I don't want it to be over! If you happen to be hosting Christmas this year or throwing a fab holiday party over the weekend then you're in luck because today we're giving you six different holiday hostess looks:

As the party hostess your outfit can go two ways: loud and fabulous (a la me this weekend) or classic perfection. For today's look I opted for classic because one can never go wrong with all black everything and a pop of metallic. Are you guys loving the midi skirt trend? I'm a big fan, especially for the holidays! Back tomorrow with a fab fab glitter romper. I promised you the holiday outfit inspo would keep on coming...

#TargetStyle: The Boo Challenge Part 2

Happy Monday! Over the weekend the BFF and I threw our 7th annual #kashlinxmas party and it was so much fun. I REALLY get into the holidays and there's nothing better than getting all of our friends together to celebrate the season. 

Back again with another Target post (last one of the year! #tears). It was so much fun challenging the BF to pick out my outfit the first time around that I brought him back to Tarjayto do it again! Getting him to Target normally is a challenge, trying to bring him during the holidays... #yikes. After ultimately choosing this look it’s pretty obvious he’s a leg man:

Yes, this is the same tunic as Friday’s post but in a different color. Like many men, the BF’s biggest outfit requirement is comfort and he chose this sweater tunic and fuzzy jacket mostly because he thought they looked snuggly and easy to move in. I have to say this jacket isn’t what I would normally reach for but it pretty much feels like a teddy bear is hugging you - I could get used to it! 


{a little Q&A with the boo}
Why did you choose these specific pieces? I thought it looked like something comfy but stylish.

What’s your favorite part about shopping with me? Seeing you put together an outfit; you just look at one thing and know exactly the next step! Yes, I totally needed your help with this.

Would you rather:
lbd or pjs? that's a trick question, it depends on the circumstances!
lipstick or lipgloss? neither - not the biggest fan of color and gloss is way too sticky.  
to dress me or let me dress myself? dress yourself - I'll leave it to the pro! 

Whether it's your bf or bff, fashion is always better with friends! Plus, it's fun to see how 
someone translates your style and adds their own aesthetic.

#TargetStyle: Flaunt it Friday

Back again with another Target collab and today it’s all about flaunting your best assets. Dressing for your body type and playing up your fave features is a sure fire way to making you feel confident and fabulous! For me it’s all about the legs, ‘bout the legs (humming Meghan Trainor’s All About the Bass in my head):

This may be a tunic but one of the perks of being 5’3” is tunics = dress! I love this outfit for everyone (even East Coasters) because you can still add tights and get a leggy, layered look! Not to mention that this faux fur is BEYOND; I received so many compliments on it the other day. #targetdoesitagain I’m already envisioning other ways to wear it! TGIF, shoe lovers. Don't forget to flaunt it this weekend!

Trench Coat Perfection

Pursuing trench coats has always been a battle for me; in LA there isn't much need for a coat so it's hard to justify spending tons of money on one. All of that changed when this lightweight trench came into my life:

I spotted it on my friend Lindsay Albanese who is a fab stylist and YouTuber. It was one of those moments when you see something on someone and instantly know you HAVE to have it (normally it happens with shoes).  What would any normal person do? Drive to Urban Outfitters on their lunch break and grab the last one in their size. Thank goodness the lightweight trench is having a moment so us Angelinos can take part in the trench coat fun!

East vs West Style: Holiday Shopping

Another week of East vs. West and today we're putting together our best holiday shopping styles. Speaking of shopping, I just did some MAJOR online gift shopping and I'm kind of proud of myself that I didn't wait until the last minute. If you're in a bind make sure to check out my "Girl on the Go" gift guide because it has some pretty fun ideas!

When it comes to shopping I have two rules: 

1) don't wear too many layers (it makes trying on clothes a sweaty serious hassle)
2) wear comfy shoes (the worst is when feet pain interrupts a good shopping sesh)

I'm really happy that tennis shoes are fashionable once more because it makes getting sh*t done that much easier. Another thought is that I'm just getting older and my tolerance for being uncomfortable is slim to none?! Anywho, these Nikes are a great one to add to your Christmas list.  (psstt..see another way to wear nike frees styled here!)

That Grown-Up Ballerina Look

Not sure about you but I always wanted to be a ballerina... I mean I was between the ages of 3 and 5 (like most of us), but by the time I was 14 and all the girls were in pointe shoes all I could do was dream. This was also the time when Center Stage came out and made being a ballerina look really cool! Of course, part of the draw of being a prima ballerina was the gorgeous tulle outfits. Thank goodness for grown-up ballerina skirts:

I just die for this skirt; it truly makes you feel special and oh-so girly! The waist band is elastic, so it fits great. One note: for us short girls it definitely hits WAY below the knee; it's almost ankle length as you can tell. Midi-skirts are super fun and a tulle one is great alternative to the typical holiday dress.

Btw, hope you all know how much I appreciate your comments on the blog and overall engagement on social media. I've been a bit crazy lately (as I'm sure you are) and haven't been able to acknowledge your sweet words like I'd like to. Just know that they don't go unnoticed. Happy Monday!
