I am so proud to share this post! My incredible friend, Lindsay Albanese teamed up with MONROW, and created a capsule collection that is sophisticated, timeless, and CHIC! I'm fawning over every piece, but honestly, I wouldn't have expected anything less from this triple threat! Lindsay is a style expert, the savviest entrepreneur I know, and THE highly revered 'Stylist-Next-Door'. So I quickly jumped at the opportunity to order early, as once the collection is sold out it's sold out! If you know me than you know I love simplicity, my closet is mostly monochromatic (as seen here), and I choose comfort over trend. With this capsule collection though you don't have to decide on one or the other, it's the perfect medley of comfort, class, and eternal style. If I can make an outfit look elegant and trendy, than anyone can . . . and I say this as I type in sweatpants and a holey racerback 😉 I paired the Lindsay Albanese Roam Sweatshirt with an asymmetrical mini skirt, thigh high boots, and simple accessories. I love the juxtaposition between my messy high-bun and this streamlined look. I felt comfortable, sexy, and sassy! Head over to MONROW and get in on the pieces! You'll forever have something to wear to any occasion because each article can be dressed up or dressed down in an endless amount of ways! How would you wear this collection? Do you enjoy a sleek, fluid kind of look, or is comfort and casual more your speed?
Everything you need to know about having a successful launch at the Rise Festival from someone who maybe-almost-kind-of didn't have a perfect night at the coveted lantern ceremony. Could have been disastrous. It was on Miya's bucket list to cross off the Rise festival from her to do's this year, which is I believe, one of the most breath taking and spiritual events you can ever partake in. So of course I told her to count me IN! Our Rise Festival took place about 32 miles northeast of Las Vegas in the middle of the desert and was the perfect setting for what would be one of the most intense visceral experiences either one of us had ever felt! You'll see! 1. Have your tickets mailed to you - if this is an option do it. Will Call was 45 minutes away from the event and completely out of the way unless you were already staying in Vegas. It would've been MUCH easier if they'd made tickets available ON site, in alphabetical order ... ya know, the same way they distributed the lanterns and mats. LOLZ 2. Fuel up before entering the site - the location is sooo in the middle of the desert that you should enter Moapa Travel Center into your GPS as it's on the Moapa River Reservation. If you're parking in the lot instead of using the shuttle system (those never seem to be the best option for me) than you're not going to want to fill [...]
Just like that we're back from paradise and ♪♪♪ back to life, back to reality ♪♪♪ Still coming down from our island-life high, I want to share with you what our next steps for this destination wedding are and everything you need to know about the magical place Azul Beach. As you know, Joe and I are planning our destination wedding in Mexico and I Googled and researched the area and it's surrounding resorts until my lil fingers couldn't type anymore! We knew that we definitely wanted to have it at an all inclusive resort because there's just no other way to vacation IMO! Accommodations, meals, beverages, activities, all included! So we made plans to site visit the one place that really stood out to me, Azul Beach by Karisma. We stayed at this hotel as well and here's the full story 😀 THAT is what we got to wake up to every day while we were there! Those views right?! I mean, it's a real life screen saver, a personal paradise I tell ya. That's the only way to describe it. PS Joe is cinematographer/photographer of the year, it's unreal how green screened and perfect everything looks. Except it's exactly like that, everything you'd imagine it to look like once you're actually there, it is that. So first off, getting to the hotel from the airport was a breeze. You have the option to have transportation take you to and from the airport, which I highly suggest, it's so much less headache [...]
In most places around the country people are welcoming the Fall season with it's fresh crisp air, leaves turning, and cozy weather. Here in Los Angeles we got a few days of cool-er weather but no leaves turning ... hell, we got no leaves! We get the cozy weather symptoms but not the actual change in season, so wherever you are, I hope this season is a beautiful one for you! Wether you're in a colder place than L.A. or you live in a tropical place, with these Fall style inspirations you can layer them up and even dress them down. Here are my most favorite ways to style boots this Fall! From chic to casual, and somewhere in between, there's something for everyone. METALLIC MAMA! There's something magical about metallics! Corinne has these exact Wanted Angel Oxfords, in metallic silver and I swear every time she puts them on it's like the Wizard of Oz except she's the damn wizard. I love her style and 90% of what I wear or dream about wearing is inspired by my fashionista daughter. Chic, professional, and playful all in one outfit! White lacey socks, fancy pants that are high waisted and belted, a white ribboned button up, rose gold blazer, earrings to match, and a black crossbody. ALL BLACK AND COGNAC! There is a theme here 😉 Let me name something and I swear I'll name everything! So if you know me than you know that black and grey make up about 99.9% of [...]
The 90's are back in a BIG way babies! I know I've said that before in previous posts and in videos but it's true! I'm sooo excited about it that I'm dedicating an entire post to the time in fashion when parachute pants, pointy bras, and pagers were the shit! Denim on denim! Remember that one time Britney and Justin wore full out matching denim outfits to the AMAs?! Yes it was 2001 but still! Not that denim could ever be out of style, but when you see denim layered with sheer tights (minus the one pant leg rolled up), denim skirts paired with crop tops, and denim jackets complete with patches . . . you know that if they were out of style, they're back! And don't forget the overalls, just ummm not with one strap down 😉 Chokers! If I'd known that these chokers would be back I would've kept all 193 of the ones my sister and I had in high school! They were wayyy cooler than the ones you see today IMO. Now you'll find them all fabrics, all colors, and the bolo is my personal favorite. Remember the plastic tattoo chokers that we'd stretch over our heads and sport every day? Ya those! ALL the kicks! Doc Martens, Adidas, Puma, Chucks, high tops, all of 'em! The pink Docs are for Corinne because she has this exact pair and I keep telling her that she's the coolest! The Adidas came in different colors, what was your [...]
