POSTCARDS FROM PARADISE :: PART 2

February 5, 2016


Though my Virgin Islands tan hasn't faded quite yet, I already miss our sun-filled adventures... Seven straight days of nothing but tanning, swimming, lounging around and relaxing:)

And since I am feeling particularly nostalgic today, I decided to share a few more images of our Caribbean adventures! Hope you enjoy!:)


BIKER BLUES

February 3, 2016


Cobalt and stripes... always a winning combination for me:) Cheery and bright, I often opt for this pairing when I style my casual outfits to make them a bit more striking and interesting. Though normally, I prefer to wear cobalt and stripes with darker denim like navy or even black, for today's look I went with something a bit lighter. Aside from the fact that I am utterly obsessed with these Citizens of Humanity jeans because they are a perfect hybrid between boyfriend and slim fit, I rather like the way cobalt and lighter denim blue complement each other for a slightly more casual, not-so-very-nautical vibe:)

SAINT LAURENT

February 1, 2016


I've been obsessively wearing leather pants and boots lately. Well..., really it's these particular boots and pants that I've been keeping on heavy rotation for the past few weeks. Suppose I'm going through one of my edgier, tailored phases and this combo seems to be the winning pairing at the moment. So, I'm just rolling with it!:) 

CAPED CRUSADER

January 30, 2016


Good morning and happy Saturday, Everyone! Hope you're all enjoying your weekend! I just wanted to say a quick hello and share a few images of my latest obsessions, starting with the uber cozy Club Monaco poncho I've added to my outwear collection recently. Chic, yet very warm and comfy, what I love about this piece the most is the fact that I can wear it in a multitude of ways. Today I opted to pair it with slouchy jeans and ankle boots, but it would look just as great with flared jeans or knee-high boots for example. Basically, the possibilities are endless, and of course you know how much I love that!:)


SANDAL STAPLES :: A FEW MARC FISHER LTD FAVORITES

January 27, 2016


If you read my blog on regular basis, you probably know what a huge shoeaholic I truly am! And so, when Marc Fisher LTD reached out with an opportunity to style a few of my favorite sandal styles, I simply couldn't resist!:) 

When it comes to my favorite shoe styles in general, drama and details is what I tend to go for the most. Even when it comes to everyday and casual, plain is not my game:)! And so, since details are so important to me and lace-up is one of the biggest trends of SS16, for this particular post, I opted to style 3 different lace-up style sandals ranging from casual to dressy. Why lace-up you ask? Well, aside from being incredibly versatile, what I like about lace-up details the most is the fact that they add that perfect touch of drama to both casual and dressy sandals. A little sexy, a little girly, they have this great ability to transform even the simplest of styles into statement making heels.


CAMEL COATED

January 25, 2016



As far as I'm concerned, accessories make or break an outfit... Ok, maybe not break but they definitely make outfits a little more interesting:)! Take today's look for example, a classic camel and black combo gets a touch of drama thanks to a pair of studded booties and a bright red bandana. Sure, I could have gone with a neutral-hued scarf like brown, cream or gray for example, but I rather like that unexpected pop of red precisely because it takes this look away from the neutral territory and makes it a bit more special:) What do you guys think? 

BLACK & WHITE

January 23, 2016

After living in LA for more than 10 years, when it comes to weather, the one thing I still find difficult to adjust to is how quickly it changes. Just when you get used to wearing sweaters and coats, it plays a trick on you and sends one of those super warm days your way. Not that I mind the warmth and sunshine! Yet, trying to dress in a weather-appropriate manner can get a little tricky.
