BIG NIGHT, LITTLE PRICE TAGS

Hollywood, CA

A few weeks ago, I had the opportunity to see the legendary, Sarah Brightman, perform at the Kodiak Theater. I’ve loved her classic songs for years, and so it was amazing to finally see her live. Between her voice and the sparkling Swarovski collection that she wore throughout the performance, it was truly a stunning evening. And now through 4/13, take 20% off Sarah’s Signature Swarovski Collection. Shop here!

So what does a girl wear to a fancy night out at the Kodiak Theater? An $89 ensemble that passes for $890. From the shoes to the earrings, this entire look was only $89! Sometimes a sucker for higher price tags, these pieces prove that I don’t have to overspend to feel and look my best. Oh and this dress from Chicwish is made out of a material that’s so comfy, it almost feels like pj’s! While the cutouts keep it feeling dressed up, it’s really just an easy throw-on-and-go number. I wear lots (and lots!) of dresses, but this one might just be the most flattering one that I own at the moment. Perfect for all things fancy, I can’t wait to find a reason to wear this outfit again.

GETTING WILD(ER)

Mar Vista, CA

Animal prints have been a thing for a while now. But I have never really been big into wearing them. No matter how many spots I'd see in fashion magazines, I never felt myself when I tried them on. But lately, with all the exotic options available, there are animal-printed styles that even I can pull off. Whether it's a leopard print jacket or python boots, these newer, more muted options are perfect for the more timid print-wearers out there (like me!)

This peachy zebra and leopard print dress from Nordstrom is a perfect example. It makes a statement without screaming at you. I love it paired with a leather jacket for some added edge and it would also be cute with a denim coat for spring. This animal-print purchase was one of my firsts, but I have a feeling it won't be my last.

OJAI ESCAPE

Ojai, CA

Last month, my Mum came out and visited from New Hampshire. I took her to Ojai for a belated Mother’s Day gift, and though we were only in town for a night, we had the best time. We explored the eclectic little shops (Fig is my favorite), went wine tasting at Ojai Valley Winery, and had the prettiest dinner on the lawn at Ojai Valley Inn. Only an hour and a half outside of LA, Ojai is quickly becoming my new favorite escape spot. More specifically, the Inn is truly an oasis unlike any hotel I’ve stayed at in years. From the views to the magical little lanterns in the trees, I haven’t felt that relaxed in a while.

On our way to dinner, my Mum snapped a few photos of me in this striped maxi dress. It’s so comfy yet the deep v neckline gives it a dressier feel. Because we wanted to do a bit of exploring and walking around the grounds, I wore my new Vionic wedge sandals. Made for comfort, I definitely need to invest in a few more pairs of these for my upcoming summer travel plans.
