Pursuing OTK Boots

The beauty of being under 5' 3" is that sometimes sweaters turn into dresses and make for the perfect style to go with OTK boots.

Partnering with DSW again to share these fab pair of OTK boots:

OTK boots have come a long way over the past couple years - originally they were one size fits all with no adjustable anything (#rude), and now most have straps or elastic backs (like the pair I'm wearing) which allow for great fitting boots. Thank goodness because we can all agree that no two ankles or thighs are the same! 

A trick I've been loving lately is taking my oversized sweaters and wearing them as dresses when the weather permits (note: sometimes a little slip dress is needed) - it's a great little tease to get in a spring state of mind.  Btw, check out my most recent About.com article to see other ways to style OTK boots.

Pursuing Snow Boots

The moment you realize you're planning a weekend in Big Bear and don't own snow boots. #LAgirlproblems



Over the weekend I escaped the city for adult winter camp with Camp No Counselors (more on this amazingness soon) and was super relieved when DSW came to my shoe rescue with these adorbs snow boots:

Apparently I like my snow gear grey with big fuzzy poufs. These boots were perfectly functional and fashionable for all of our outdoor activities, one of which was tubing:

Guys, tubing is SO fun! The best part was racing down the mountain next to 5 yr. olds that were having just as good of a time. I feel like there are very few things that can make both 28 yr. olds and 5 yr. olds smile from ear to ear. Tubing = the winner!

When packing for the trip, I definitely wasn't looking to spend a million dollars on new snow boots since I've been to the snow maybe 2 times in the past 5 years.  Thank goodness DSW came through with a reasonably priced pair (under $100). Btw, they're having a crazy boot sale right now on these and so many other fab styles. 

Can't wait to share more about Camp No Counselors with you - stay tuned!

#TargetStyle: Winter White

This month is the last month of my year long #TargetStyle partnership (#tears) and if I've learned anything, it's that Target is not just a place to pick up cleaning supplies and toilet paper, but a fab stop for all things beauty and fashion.

Since I'm just returning from the snow, it's fitting that today's post is all about winter whites:


Neutrals are my jam at the moment and this look worked out perfectly for a day of meetings and dinner in downtown. Obviously in LA we can get away with open-toed heels in the middle of January but switch 'em out with nude or camel booties and the outfit will still look fab. Funny story: I stopped by my parents house on this day and the first thing my mom said was "I thought you can't wear white pants until Memorial Day" and I quickly said "Mom, you can wear what ever you want... it's fashion!" to which she responded, "You're right. I'm just going to wear whatever I feel like!" And the moral of that story is #youdoyou.

Btw, I'm mildly obsessed with this pony/braid situation. It's so easy to get caught up in a regular hair routine and this year I want to start making an effort to switch it up every once in a while. What do you think?

Fur Vesting It

Ahh a good faux fur vest, the pursuit is real...


Target does it again with this baby! After two years of pursuing a great faux fur vest, I finally stumbled on this lovely in December and it's been on heavy rotation ever since. A few tips for pursuing a great faux fur vest that doesn't look cheap:

fit: oversized is better; make sure the vest hits at or below the hip
color: natural mix of black, brown, grey, and white looks the most realistic

In a few weeks I'll be sharing a handful of ways to wear fur vests since temps look like they're not warming up any time soon!  Hope you have a great holiday weekend!
