Birthday Bae

10/27‚Ķ.The best day of the year (to me ūüėä)¬† So here we are in October in LA and its peaking at above 85 degrees.¬† Talk about a good birthday gift.¬† Over the weeks leading up to my special day, I went over a number of things that I could do and just settled on the fact that I wanted to have loads of fun.¬† So my first trip for this fun adventure began by making it to the infamous Paul Smith ‚ÄúPink Wall‚ÄĚ on Melrose for photo ops.¬† I finally made it!!!¬† Yay.¬† For my day birthday fit, I decided to work with what I had in my closet.¬† It was such nice weather so I went with a black cropped top, my favorite ripped jeans from Zara and an all-black suede Steve Madden mule.¬† If you don‚Äôt know by now, I love me a nice mule.¬† I gave so many retro chic 90s vibes with this look.¬† I recently cut my hair so that added a different element to this vibe too of course. Although it is definitely fall, LA allows you to dress for the weather not season.

Afterwards, I went for margaritas at Velvet Margarita and decided to give Halloween Horror Nights a try for the evening.  I’m not one that desires to be scared but I went for it and had such a wonderful time.  Of course, a night in a theme park required a quick wardrobe change but overall this birthday was one of the best.  Doing something that was actually fun (including an impromptu photo shoot lol) First birthday in LA in the books!  Check out the great birthday shots I was able to get.

LA Edition: Part 2

image

To continue with my LA edition, I wanted to share yet another casual look fitting for Cali. ¬†It was so easy to pack for this trip! ¬†For starters, you eliminate packing a huge coat. ¬†Also you’d probably only wear a pair of sneakers and need a casual shoe or booties for the nightlife. ¬†On this particular day, the high expected was around 70 during the day and low 60s towards the night hours. ¬†This was perfect flannel weather to me. ¬†I decided to wear a blue and black plaid flannel along with a gray sweater cardigan on top of it, both from Old Navy. ¬†The cardigan was light enough to not get too warm throughout the day but heavy enough for the cool breeze expected at night. ¬†This paired nicely with a normal washed denim boyfriend jean with the small cuffs, also from Old Navy. ¬†If you cannot tell by now, Old Navy is one of my go to’s. ¬†Especially since it’s close by my job :-). ¬†There’s literally a sale everyday so how could you not indulge? ¬†To add to my casual look, I wore my favorites again; NMDs by Adidas. ¬†These have to be some of the most comfortable sneakers I’ve ever owned (I probably told you guys this before too). ¬†I think I mastered the chill, laid back look for my day in LA, not forgetting my sunnies and Prince pin. ¬†Check out more pics below and be sure to follow along my LA journey.

Greene St Vibes

imageLiving in New York, you come to learn that dressing comfortably is key. ¬†I eyed this t-shirt dress from H&M for awhile and finally decided to just grab a small and see how it fitted later. ¬†To my surprise, this dress fit perfectly! ¬†A great investment for the summer and definitely worth the $14.99. ¬†I paired it with a quilted rose gold patterned ‘Van-like’slip on shoe from Steve Madden. ¬†These shoes are pretty comfy as well. ¬†Pairing these with all black seemed to highlight the shoe more in my perspective and went well with this street comfy style. ¬†I was Soho ready with this look. ¬†Check out more pics below.
