My Moto

The other day, in an attempt to make small talk with me, my fiance's friend asked me what my alltime favorite piece of clothing was (that I currently own.) I actually stared into my closet, trying to answer his question. I felt stupid that I had no immediate response. Today, I figured it out. It's definitely my cropped moto jacket! I always wear it, it's my "go to" for every outfit. 

On a side note.. how cute is this polka dot wall?!!

Blogger problems..

I'm constantly stressing about my blog content. I have not been posting enough and I know it. I know that if I want this blog to grow, I have to invest in it much more than I have been. I know that I have to work much harder at this, but why is it that I have not been doing so?! I truly get in my own way! I procrastinate so much. Most importantly though, I must find ways to feel less limited and more motivated. Recently, a fellow blogger DM'd me on Instagram and we grabbed coffee and got some great photos! It got me thinking about what is holding me back. I often don't have someone to help me capture my ootds and this is a big issue for me. This was a great way to help one another create as well as build good friendships. While my friends are amazing, they are not quite as passionate in fashion as I. I've decided to get a blogger girl gang of my own started. I think it would be so much fun! XO

NASTY #ootd

I love this skirt. I love that it's leather, I love it's zippers and of course, I love that it's mini! I bought it awhile back and haven't worn it as much as I thought I would. Well now it's on heavy rotation, and I wear it with all types of tees and even with sneeks. What a great buy! Ever since the nasty gal melrose store has opened, every time I pop in, I always end up buying something. I guess it's true #nastygalsdoitbetter !!! XO

Commando

The second I put this dress on, I realized that even wearing nude underwear wasn't gonna cut it. My fiance suggested I just go commando.  So I went for it, and although it feels liberating, it may not be the best idea for some outfits and by "outfiits," I mean dresses. I always envision the tabloid image of Britney Spears' vagina slip as she is getting out of a car. Also, in the 100 degree LA heat, this may not have been a good idea. I was excessively sweating and without underwear I was even more subconscious of possible disasters. Needless to say, I don't go commando very often and although I loved this outfit, it wasn't the perfect moment to wear it and perhaps I should invest in some spanx for it haha. XO

I basically live in this Moto jacket. I wear it almost everyday, it's my most fav thing right now. A great Motorcycle jacket is a must, it adds a certain edginess to any outfit. I particularly love that this one is a crop. It isn't heavy and is great for the CALI weather. Surprisingly, a classic black leather jacket can be very versatile. I wear mine for daytime looks as well as night time ones. For more inspo on how to sport a Moto jacket, check out my Pinterest boards! Gotta love the Pinterest, it always helps inspire me to wear things differently than I normally would. Anyways, here is a capture of me casually walking around melrose.. Isn't this kitty cat wall the cutest!!! XO

Shirt Dress

I've been obsessed with these heels since Valentine's day. I just think they are the cutest! I love the pop of color they add.  Here is a quick snap of yesterday's outfit. It was so hot in LA, that this white shirt dress seemed like the perfect ootd. It's hard to want to wear anything really, I just want to lay at the beach all day! I have a major travel bug right now. I'm seriously craving a vacation somewhere beachy! What about you guys, where do you want to travel next? XO

Oh please BE MINE

Just thinking about Valentine's Day has got me lusting for all things hearts, red, pink, and lovely! Customarily, your supposed to be looking for gifts for your partner... oopsy


(Note: You can click on the photos for links and be a shopaholic like me. )



Gosh, these sandals have been on my wishlist for quite some time now. They are just too cute! A good pair of flats is a must, because lets be honest who roams the city in their heels all day? Gotta take care of those feet, and why not give them some love with these bad boys hahaha.

I don't own a pair of pink heels. These would be perfect don't you think? Pink is like one of my fav colors; I'm so confused as to why I don't already own a pair. These are so affordable and really classic. For some reason, I feel like they give off a Sarah Jessica Parker vibe.





A red dress seems like appropriate attire for Valentines day. I love these two picks so much. They exude sexy and are both the perfect pop of red! I actually tried the strapless ForLoveandLemons dress on in black and fell in love with it, but now that I see it in red, it's got me thinking I wanna be the lady in red. I also think red works better on brunettes. 


I threw a white dress in the mix because who wants to be basic and like everyone else. This dainty little number is so girly and feminine, and is perfect for a little Vday outing. Pair it with those pink heels and you've got magic! 

Red nail polish is a staple and go big or go home, right?  I'm so curious about Christian Louboutin's nail polish line. Is it worth the  $ ???


Can't do Valentine's day without a little lingerie. If you don't already own a naughty number, there are probably many other options that would suit the occasion better, but this  seemed so cutesy to me and I just love it!

Well there you have it, a  list of wants  that I LOVE.  I hope your Valentine spoils you, and if he doesn't why not spoil yourself... YOU DESERVE IT!

Pleather Please

I was super anxious for the end of January to arrive. I took a trip to VEGAS!!! It was not only Super Bowl weekend but it was also (the boyfriend) Gabriel's 30th Birthday. He chose Vegas for the sports and the gambling. Yes, Vegas is great for that, but I love the idea that it's Sin City. I can win money, eat at expensive restaurants, stay at a schnazy hotel, all the while looking fabulous. The dressing up aspect is the fun part to me. I can't wait to fill you in on all the Vegas outfit deets! I literally just got back from Vegas and although I'm exhausted, I'm still on Vegas time. I'm wide awake and doing a lot of thinking about all the posts I'd like to do this month. In the meantime, here is a casual look from last week that I neglected to post. This almost head to toe pleather look was perfect for the gloomy LA weather last week. XO

#SundayVibes

I know it's officially monday now but can we talk sunday hahaha... Sunday's outfit came together so quickly. I woke up knowing exactly what I wanted to wear. I love it when that happens; sometimes it's nice not having to change a million times before finally achieving a look that you love. Following suit with the last post, I opted for a collared white blouse today. The high waisted shorts worked out perfectly for the 80 degree weather, and the leather crop jacket has been my go-to since I purchased it. I thought the handbag's pop of color was a perfect touch to the monochrome look. The amazing cherry red handbag was gifted to me for Christmas by my lovely boyfriend. I love it so much! I seriously felt like a bad ass in this outfit. It's crazy how an outfit can boost your confidence and make you feel great. XO
