the holiday air

By November 30, 2012 Style

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas…at least in my apartment. The tree(s) are up, along with some ornaments and lights – although there’s many more of each to come. Nightly lit Christmas-tree candles + frequent holiday-esque cocktails (my current go-to is a red wine + sparkling cider + splash of vodka + fresh cranberries + basil cocktail) + the most fancy looking boxed wine I’ve ever found, sets the scene for impromptu holiday parties all season long.

oh i love this: party wear

{1. topshop sequin peplum top  2. deborah lippman glitter polish  3. kate spade sequin skirt  4. topshop dress 5. funtasma glitter flats  6. dorothy perkins faux fur coat  7. diamante box clutch  8. j crew glitter belt

Tis the season for sparkle, sequins, shine, and glitt-ah. While warm weather warms my heart, over-the-top dressing does just as much. Layers of clothing, cold weather accessories, and a sort of more-is-more dressing philosophy is almost necessary to stay warm during chilly days. I like to be comfortable but dressed up most days – this rings true year-round, but with the holiday season in the air no excuse is a perfect excuse to get extra gussied up. Here’s my current lust list of perfectly appropriate {anytime} attire right now.

to and from

By November 27, 2012 Style


I am excited to be part of the premiere issue of To and From, a digital magazine of which this entire first issue is devoted to gift guides for every person you could possibly have to buy for this holiday season. Alongside some of my favorite bloggers, I curated a personal gift guide – this one specifically for the girly girl in your life {it’s always easiest to buy for someone that likes the same things you do, no?} The guide also includes ideas for everything from what to buy for the foodie, the parents, the boy…all those hard-to-buy-for’s. You’ll want to take some time enjoying every page – it’s full of beautiful things!

giving thanks {it’s the little things}

By November 24, 2012 Style

I spent Thanksgiving unplugged from the phone + laptop and enjoyed a day revolved around family and food. While it’s always a good time to stop, reflect, and give gratitude for the the big things in life you are thankful for {loved ones, health, home, job} I wanted to also give thanks to the little things in life that don’t always get much attention.

So – in addition to those biggies I am ever so thankful for, this year, I’m also giving thanks for some of the smaller ones…thank you fur vests {what did I ever wear before?} nail polish {haven’t seen my fingers without in years}, sequins {because.}, chocolate milk {always comforting}, my neighborhood {I adore the shops, restaurants, neighbors}, avocados {I’m a guac snob who prefers my own to anyone elses}, pink pants {these are my favorite}, polka dots {on everything}, the song ‘Just Like Heaven’ by the Cure {which will forever remind me of the first fashion show I ever went to in NYC}, thank you glasses {giving me a break from contacts}, tights {in every color and print}, Kai fragrance {the smell has always taken me back to a small shop I visited in Huntington Beach while living in LA}, crunchy almond butter {eat it like ice cream}, my camera {that allows me to capture great moments + lovely things}, and thank you {for reading this little Thanksgiving post + blog…it means the world that you take the time to visit}.
