my essentials

It's about time I share my favorite items in my closet to close out 2011!

From left to right: 

Basic Zara Linen T-Shirt: by far the easiest go to in my closet. They look way nicer on than any cotton t-shirt, yet are just as comfortable. LOVE.

BDG Denim Button-Down: I love this because I wear it both buttoned up as a shirt or over a tank or shirt as a jacket. Perfect weight especially with the mild weather in LA. (link is similar version)

Vince High-Low Sweater: I cannot tell you how much I wear this friends know I basically live in this. I throw it over anything. It's a large so it's oversized which I love, but because it's a nice sweater I still look put together no matter what I'm wearing it with. 

Zara Leopard Scarf: This scarf rivals my vince sweater in the amount of use it has gotten. I've even worn it as a top. It adds a lot to a simple outfit and when I don't feel like picking out an outfit I usually throw this over anything. If you don't own a leopard scarf yet I suggest adding one to your closet. 

Jeffrey Campbell "Rouges" Bootie:  Easy bootie to throw on with any outfit. Looks great with skinnies or even shorts so I can wear them year round. Love that all the hardware is gold too!

Sam Edelman Gold "Gigi" Sandal: The most comfortable sandal I've owned for the price. The gold is a perfect color and dresses up any casual outfit. Totally worth the price. 

Citizens of Humanity Denim : literally the most comfortable, live-in jeans I've ever owned. If you get them, size down because they do stretch!

Citizens of Humanity Black "Avedon" Jean: my go to, especially for going out at night when it's freezing outside! Also, a much more put-together option compared to black leggings.

Viktor and Rolf Flowerbomb Perfume: my favorite go-to perfume. I am so picky when it comes to perfumes and I never get sick of this scent. Absolute perfection.

Michael Kors Gold Watch: I like that this watch isn't too big and isn't flashy. Simple and refined. I never used to wear a watch before this one but I love how it adds to an outfit, especially layered with some bangles.

Max & Chloe Monogram Necklace: I wear this everyday and never take it off. Easy to layer with and looks great with a bunch of bangles on because it is so simple. 

Hope you enjoyed this past year and have an amazing 2012!!!

free people holiday lookbook

Some of my favorite looks from their current lookbook... 

I always love their styling and it's definitely putting me in the holiday spirit!


total steal: balenciaga cutout boots

I recently stumbled upon these Jeffrey Campbell cutout boots on the Nasty Gal website that look almost identical to the Balenciaga ones from earlier this summer. 

At 165$ compared to over 1,000$ that the Balenciaga boots cost I'm definitely not complaining :)

pick of the day: stripes

The perfect striped rugby sweater from UO to get you through winter. I love black and camel together.

classically refined, yet the texture makes it fun


Monday, November 28, 2011

pick of the day: sequins

These Zara shorts are a total staple especially with it being christmas party season and new years coming up soon!
 I also recently purchased these and couldn't be more excited to wear them :)

I'm thinking casually with a Chaser t-shirt and my moto boots or dressed up with tights, black heels, blazer and a chunky necklace

I know I am doing these posts backwards but I totally forgot to post pictures from thanksgiving!

hope you all had a wonderful day!

I was at my aunt's house in Palm Springs and of course knowing her it was going to be absolutely gorgeous. 

If only I could live in this house year round :)

the living room that opens up to the pool, love how light this room always is

of course the infamous cheese plate...always delicious

gorgeous centerpieces...the colors we're perfect for thanksgiving!

the table all set :)

bella...the most precious and delvish puppy ever

the most amazing albino peacock she has on display...breathtaking

my place setting at the table!


black friday steals!

Since I was celebrating Thanksgiving this year at my aunt's house in Palm Springs the only stores close by on black friday was the Desert Hills Outlet Mall. Although I normally avoid outlets since I get insanely overwhelmed, this year my sister and mom dragged me there where we found some really great clothes! I found most of the steals at the Neimans outlet store that was brand new, J. crew and the BCBG outlet which always has great stuff. Since everything was already marked down, and then an extra 30-40% off of that price I got most of my stuff for about a quarter of the original price!! 

I hope you all found good deals on black friday too!! 

let me know which stores I must check out next year!
