Well, Valentines Day is just a couple days away and this year it falls on a Friday-yikes! That means in all likelihood you are going to have do something with your night.  Well I guess you don’t HAVE to, but why not do something?  If you have a date then lovely, but if not- I say, spend time with your friends who you probably love more than that random person you met on Tinder last month anyway (seriously though).  Have a girl’s night out and get all dressed with your best ladies OR stay in and watch movies and eat delicious homemade food.   Don’t get me wrong I am thrilled to have an amazing Valentine nowadays, but it’s taken me a really long time to find him and if I’ve learned anything in my many years of dating before Eric, it’s that if the guy is not AMAZING- it’s always more fun to have a girls night.

That being said, since a lot of us won’t be available on Friday and we have a tradition of doing a dinner around Valentines Day, my girlfriends and I are all headed out to our favorite Mexican spot tonight.  It’s BYOB and it is always an absolute blast.  As important as it is to foster a romantic relationship, I think it’s also necessary to take time to appreciate the girls in your life who are also there to make all your days brighter.

I love this floral dress from H&M for a winter date night.  It's affordable, romantic, and it just may the perfect dress for your Friday night festivities. If you follow me on Pinterest, you may have noticed that I have developed a bit of a new obsession with florals and so it probably doesn't come as much of a surprise that this is one of my favorite picks for Valentines Day. 

I hope you all have a lovely night!

Patriots Aftermath.

January 20, 2014

Los Angeles, CA


Ok well first off- I have to address the elephant in the room (would it be “elephant on the screen?”) Anyways, I’m sure the big question on all your minds right now is, of course, what my thoughts are on yesterdays Patriots game.  Am I right?  Well guys, the simple answer is, while it was certainly rough one (I’m talking ROUGH), I’m still proud of them for making it so far this year.  Oh and ya know what I also appreciated?  Even though they lost, Tom Brady still wore quite the eye-catching suit in the post-game interview. I mean, that could’ve been a really somber and depressing press conference, and maybe it was, but I was totally distracted by his fashionable attire the whole time so I couldn’t even tell you if it was or not!  All I know is that I am already looking forward to another season of Tom Brady and his post-game press conference attire.

Although they say it’s winter (and I’ve been trying my best to dress accordingly) it’s just about as wintery as a day at the beach for me today here in Southern California.  I have some family in town from back east and they have assured me that it is freezing back home and so we made sure to enjoy the long weekend over at the beach.  That’s right- I’m talking bathing suit weather.  We went for ice cream, woke up to take early morning strolls on the beach, played a few rounds of ski-ball at the arcade and- I even saw a few seals yesterday!  Having family in town is amazing and somehow, no matter how much time we spend together, it never seems to be enough.

I chose this bright and airy outfit for today’s lunch down at Enterprise Fish Co. before I have to drop my cousin at the airport.  I’ve always been too scared to wear these high-waisted flowy pants because they can be a bit unforgiving, but I figured what the heck- It’s 80 in January, I’m going to take a risk!   They’re really comfortable- it’s like wearing PJ’s- and if you pair them with some heels or booties like I did here, you can dress the outfit up a lot. 

Happy MLK Day!

California Holidays

December 14, 2013

Los Angeles, CA

ls flowy.jpg

In a couple of short days, I’ll be headed back east for a nice long holiday break and while I honestly can’t wait- I just got off the phone with my Mum who informed me that it’s currently 11 degrees and snowing at their house… What?!   Oh yeah that’s right, I guess I forgot that it’s the time of year when it snows in a good portion of the U.S.  Living in LA, you tend to forget that the seasons are changing since the weather tends to be much more mild. I think it was seventy today! 

Since I haven’t been back since early November, having spent Thanksgiving here, enjoying dinner, jacket-less, outside by the ocean in Palos Verdes, I am no doubt in for a rude awakening.  I mean, my boyfriend, who virtually complains about nothing, just asked me for long underwear for his Christmas gift (and meant it) because that’s how cold it has been in Boston!  Am I looking forward to the cold? Yes and no.  While it’s never terribly fun to walk around the city (no matter how many layers or warm coats you’ve got on) it’s a great time of year to cozy up and enjoy the fresh winter air. It also feels a lot more like Christmas with that chill in the air (let’s see how much I agree with this statement once I’m back next week).  I have to admit, it never really feels much like Christmas until I get home and so if that means I have to throw on a couple extra scarves.. so be it.  Either way, it’s what I’ve always grown up with and it’s the kind of weather that I’ve come to love as being a part of my holiday tradition. 

That being said, I’d say you California natives don’t have it too bad and might I add that I’ve always enjoyed being able to go to holiday parties (sans massive coats) here in in LA before heading home.  In fact, I’m headed to a couple holiday parties tonight and can’t wait to catch up with old friends and see everyone before this city officially shuts down for the year.  In a town where most everyone is not originally from here, you’d be amazed to know how quiet it becomes.  Everyone gets away and travels and production in the entertainment world shuts down, so the holiday parties leading up to the big hiatus are also quite a blast- everyone wants to get in their goodbyes before the new year!


Hope you’re enjoying the weekend (warm or cold) wherever you are!


This is one of many holiday party outfits I’ve worn out here this past week.  I found the dress at H&M and the booties are from Aldo.  The necklace is from That’s Mine! Boutique, an adorable online boutique based out of Maryland, where the creator, Amy, specializes in handcrafted jewelry.  If you haven’t heard of it, you should definitely check it out.  She makes everything herself so it’s all completely unique, which I love!  While most of her jewelry is a bit more colorful, I went with this silver necklace today because the design (although they are actually flowers) reminded me of snowflakes… who says you’ll never see snow in LA?
