What to Wear

I've been having trouble posting. I want so desperately to take cute outfit pics and dress up to go out, but it's just not gonna happen. Every time I put something on that I think will look cute and flattering, I end up looking like a potato. I'll schedule to shoot and then cancel because I'm too tired and have zero energy to do my hair and makeup. Ok Ok.. by now your probably like WHA? Well Guys, I'm pregnant! I haven't made a formal announcement on my social media yet, but I have so much to say about getting dressed while being pregnant. What a pain! You thought you didn't have clothes to wear before, well when your pregnant it's a million times more complicated than that. I'm so excited to be pregnant but the maternity clothing available is truly horrendous. Maternity clothing is actually really pricey for being so ugly. Women still buy it though, out of necessity. I purchased my first maternity clothing the other day and although I wasn't thrilled with the stuff, I figured I could add my personal touch to the otherwise simple pieces. I'm hoping when I actually have a bump, it will get a little easier because I'll look pregnant and wont be so subconscious about looking like I'm just overweight. For now it's anything flowy and oversized! Here is an outfit that I recently posted on my IG a few weeks ago (still in my first trimester,) when I wasn't really showing much but was very bloated and fatigued haha.

HUDSON Jeans for the Win

These HUDSON jeans are my new favorite jeans. They are so comfortable and I love the wash. It is great for daytime and nighttime wear. You may have noticed that I have been wearing a lot of Topshop high waisted jeans in my recent posts. They became my staple as I stirred away from G Star jeans and the super low rise. The Topshop jeans are affordable and super cute. I highly recommend them! However I was on a quest for a new nice pair of designer jeans and I have succeeded.

Rain Rain... I love you, but go away!

What is the deal with the LA weather? My wardrobe is so confused right now... Over the past few weeks, I've been trying to wear my coats and sweaters, but I'm finding that I don't really have that many. I guess living in LA my entire life, didn't really prepare me very well for a down pour of rain and high winds. I actually don't own any water proof shoes, nor do I own any rain coats. I also came to the realization that I need to upgrade my cheapy umbrella asap! For now I've been living in this Zara coat!!! I basically have been wearing it with everything! I'm really happy with it because weather I'm wearing a light top or a bulky sweater, it layers quite nicely!

Netflix and Chill

There is so much to do in LA. I need to start getting out and taking walks. Just walking around my neighborhood, I discovered some tree lined streets that are full of beautiful palm trees! Instead of getting out however, I'm becoming a coach potato. I've been binge watching so much tv lately. I think in an attempt to stop shopping and spending money, I've been distracting myself with movies and television. We spend way too much on our cable and yet there is never anything to watch. I think Netflix and chill is seriously my life right now.  I started watching Stranger Things awhile back, and since then have become hooked on Netflix. I also recently finished watching The OA, which was incredible. They have been killing it with the shows! I really like that I can just watch everything without waiting for a new episode, but that can also be the death of me. Currently I'm watching GLITCH; add it to your queue it's super interesting, haha. If you have any suggestions of TV shows or rather free LA activities, I'm missing out on, leave it in the comments! xo

Whatever

This whatever bomber is on heavy rotation. I'm trying to buy less and less trendy items and more staple classic pieces, but this bomber definitely snuck in there. At least it's black and pretty much goes with everything... I just couldn't resist sportin the motto.  Whatever has certainly been my mood lately.

Feelin Like A Champ

It's been so chilly in LA. I mean, I've never taken sweater weather so seriously before. As you know, I'm a sucker for baby pink or blush tones, so naturally this sweater was a perfect choice. I purchased it online as a Hanukkah gift to myself. I bought it in size XS and honestly it fits rather large on me. Even though I was disappointed in the fit, I still liked it enough to keep. I think mainly the sleeves bother me. This outfit turned out super sporty, which is not normally my look. It was ultra comfy to wear and I think I may opt for looks like this more often.

Classic Denim Jacket

In LA it's hard to say what exactly can be considered fall weather, since it pretty much is always sunny and warm. Still, It is starting to feel a bit like fall! It's been cooler in the evening and I've been bringing a light jacket with me everywhere.  A classic denim jacket is just the perfect choice. I've been wearing my denim jacket with just about everything lately. I bought mine awhile back at  Forever21 and it's lasted me well, forever! You can't go wrong with denim in my opinion and it seems that denim jackets are starting to make a comeback too.

Seven Magic Mountains

Driving to and from vegas can be a pain, but now there is something cool to see along the way. I must admit I haven't driven to vegas in quite some time, flying is definitely the way to go. I just don't see the appeal of the dreaded hungover drive home, so anytime I can, I fly. Don't get me wrong road trips can be fun and there are plenty of cool spots to visit on the way to Vegas and just a short drive from it. This last time I went, we drove and so I made sure visiting this art installation was on the agenda. Seven Magic Mountains is a colorful sight in the desert. Ugo Rondinone's large scale art installation is super insta worthy. I loved it!

Summer Mode

I think ZARA is my favorite store. As of lately, I've been basically just living in their clothes. I recently purchased this beautiful skirt. I don't own anything like it, but now I want a million of them. It's so comfortable, super flirty and perfect for the summer. I loved that this particular one had pockets!  Although the last few days haven't been really sunny, summer is just around the corner and everyone is getting ready! The only thing I've prepared is my clothing haha. I should of already been working on my beach body, but sadly I have not. My bachelorette trip to Cabo is just around the corner, so I need to step it up. 

P.S. Isn't my nephew the cutest!!

Shopaholic

Hey Guys! I've been so busy moving, planning a wedding, and celebrating my bday (posts about all this to come) that I've neglected to blog my outfits. In all honesty, I have been avoiding the malls in an attempt to save money. It is very hard for me not to shop. If I'm not out shopping, I'm online shopping. Even though I rarely purchase clothing online, because I fear that it wont fit the way I wish it to, I still buy. I'm the girl that has too much clothes and yet has nothing to wear! I've browsed many online shops over the last few days and have set my eye on quite a few things. In the meantime, I guess I should blog the outfits I do have.. So my tan lines are cray, but this off the shoulder is awesome. ; )
