Versatile Pieces with Macy's INC {VIDEO}


The second video from our Macy’s shoot is done! In the vid we share how to take key pieces from Macy's INC line and transition them from different day to evening events. Check it out:

I'm such a fan of buying a few statement pieces and working them with everything in your wardrobe. Like I've said before, a shoe change always does the trick (wink wink)!

How amazing do Hallie, Tammy, and Channing look? I'm seriously missing them and NYC.

Happy Weekend!

Last Minute Gift: Hot Chocolate & Bailey's Jar

I totally failed with gift guides this season  - where does the time go?! Two nights ago as I was frantically checking people off my list, I remembered a DIY gift that I pinned a few months back: hot chocolate & bailey's mason jars! They're super cute and unique, especially for co-workers or neighbors. I bought almost everything from Target and made a dozen in about 20 minutes:


 {what you need}
- mason jars
- hot chocolate powder
- marshmallows
- mini baileys or kahlua bottles (purchased at BevMo)
- raffia or ribbon

 BevMo actually had a limited supply of baileys so I opted to do a few kahlua bottle pairings. Yesterday I took them to work and they were a huge hit! Who doesn't love hot chocolate with a bit of alchy?

Happy gifting!

The Perfect Coat {Video}

I'm so excited to share the first of two videos I shot during my 24hr NYC trip! We all know that it's important to find the perfect coat and that's exactly what we did with  Macy's:


The coat I'm wearing is from Steve Madden and has a detachable faux fur collar; perfect to transition from NY back to LA.  I had such a blast shooting with Hallie, Tammy, and Channing and I love that we all have different takes on the perfect winter coat! What do you think?

Studs + Faux Fur

My go-to travel outfit has kind of become my default casual weekend outfit. Not sure if that's a good thing but it's definitely comfy! When I grabbed this chambray shirt on a recent Macy's trip, the first words out of my sister's mouth were, "you already have a chambray shirt."  Let's get one thing straight, one can never have too many chambray shirts or pairs of leggings! Am I right or am I right? 



To winterize the look I spiced it up with a cozy fur vest and close-toed studded flats:

Studs are SO hot right now and shoes are a great way to bring the detail in to your winter wardrobe. With studs the key is less is more. I would opt for only one studded accessory or piece per outfit; something that's versatile and can be paired with tons of things in your wardrobe. Brown leather flats go with everything! Besides these fun flats, I'm loving all the studded booties and heels out there right now.

This faux fur vest, with it's sweater knit back, is PERFECT for Cali weather and my petite frame. It keeps me just warm enough for our 60 degree winters and doesn't make me look like a ball of fur.  Speaking of perfection, there are no words for my love of chambray but I think that's pretty obvious!

Wax Coated

Umm... is it me or is Christmas pretty much here? Yikes, I'm not ready! Sunday I spent the day doing a little Christmas shopping and wore wax coated J. Brands that I scooped up from Macy's. I actually have them in nude (remember this post?) and knew I needed a black pair for winter. Shh... I'm kind of obsessed with them. Wax coated denim keeps things interesting without being as showy as colored or patterned styles. 

Of course it wouldn't be a Holiday look without a little bit of sparkle. Talk about a comfy, chic AND festive shopping outfit:

For big shopping trip it's all about easy flats and layering pieces + denim that allows you to move. I always wear slip-on flats when I'm planning to be within 10 ft of a mall. Let's be honest, you've got to have easy access to trying on all the shoes in the shoe departments (wink wink).

For me, wax coated denim sits right between basic blue jeans and leather pants. They're uber stylish and versatile and not as much of a commitment as leather pants.  The J. Brand Skinnies can easily be transformed into a night out look with a pair of fierce heels. Have you jumped on the wax coated train? Do tell!
