“Currently Coveting – All things blush!”

Hi guys!  I wanted to start a new series of things that I’m “currently coveting” on my blog!  Right now, I am obsessed with anything blush!  From shoes to bags, I just can’t get enough of this color.  Definitely my favorite hue this season!  Check out my current faves below:

I now own a couple of these items.  Can you guess which ones?  Happy browsing! ❤

 

 

 

“Because pink can be edgy too.”

Oh, Pinks and blushes.  So pretty and delicate to look at.  It’s no wonder that Rose Quartz was picked as Pantone Color of the Year 2016 along with Serenity.  Yes, this color thing is an ACTUAL thing, guys.  The rose tone of my sweater looks so soft and feminine so I decided to add a little edge to it.  Want to know how to achieve this combo?  Here’s my equation: Pink + leather/camo = femme fatale.  I just love the contrast of edgy and soft for that sweet yet daring look.  Throw on some leather or even a military jacket and voila!  I love the way a good ol’ camo jacket looks against soft pinks.  I scored my camo jacket from Asos and guess what?  It’s actually a men’s jacket! Who would’ve guessed?  I love an oversized military jacket and this one goes with almost anything.  My closet would be nothing without this!

*Here’s a quick tip: don’t be afraid to browse the men’s section.  A lot of times, that’s where the goods are!  I love when its #borrowedfromtheboys *

To top it off, add some sunnies and studded boots to bring out your inner cool girl.

So guys, is it time to rethink pink? ❤

P.S. I just noticed that my purse isn’t closed in this photo.  Oops!  #nobodysperfect haha!

“Give thanks with a grateful heart.”

Happy Humpday, everyone!  Can you believe that tomorrow is Thanksgiving already? Seriously, where did the year go?!

I wanted to share a quick, little post before the Thanksgiving holiday starts.  I’m sure many of us are looking forward to the holiday weekend and spending time with our loved ones (that would be ME!).  This year, I have plenty of things to be thankful for. With all that’s happening in the world today,  I’ve learned to appreciate what I have and what God has blessed me with: the big things and the little things.  Growing up, my parents would always remind my sister and I that “there’s someone out there that is happy with less than what you have…” and it taught me how to be grateful.  Thanksgiving isn’t about the turkey and the Black Friday deals.  Spend this time with your loved ones, count your blessings, and be thankful with a grateful heart (everyday).

We are only a few days shy from December and I honestly can’t believe that it’s almost been a year since I started blogging.  Just wanted to let you guys know that I am thankful for all of you for reading my posts and for following along!  Love you guys!

Happy Thanksgiving to you and your loved ones ❤

P.S. Wearing one sweater = two looks! Enjoy!

“Cold shoulder”

Happy humpday!  Here’s another post at the beach because who doesn’t love the beach? Back to talking about #sweaterweather outfits because when that fall chill comes rolling in, we want to shimmy into something cozy.  This off the shoulder sweater is soft and feels like a big blanket on me!  Yes, it’s huge (don’t we all like the oversized look?) but anything that hangs off the shoulder is kinda sexy with a little bit of skin showing.  I wore denim cutoffs with these because it was fitting for hanging by the beach, but this can be easily worn with skinny jeans/leggings for a balanced silhouette.  My looks aren’t complete without my sunglasses, so here I’m wearing this adorable pair for a little extra flair.  Hey, that rhymes!

Cozy?  Check.  Oversize?  Check.  Comfortable?  Check.  Stylish?  Check.  This sweater is everything!

My cold shoulder never looked so good. ❤

“Hello, fall.”

Living here in California does have its perks.  Fall is in the air, but it’s not quite the time to put those summer pieces away yet.  I wanted to hang out by the beach one foggy morning and I knew that it was going to be a bit chilly.  I tried not to look like I was dressed for the polar vortex (if its 65 degrees and under, I’m freezing! haha!) so hello, chunky, oversized cardigan. 🙂  I often keep a cozy cardi in hand for those transitional weather days, especially living here in the Bay Area.

Oversized cardigans and cutoffs mesh well together, so if you want to pull out those chunkier knits at the beach, balance it out with denim cutoffs.  Shoes are optional. ❤

Create + Cultivate Los Angeles Conference

A week ago, I attended my first conference, Create + Cultivate with one of my girlfriends, Joanne  from Go fit Jo and also met up with my other blogger gal pal Chelsea from The Millenial Miss in L.A.  If you read one of my posts from this past month, I mentioned that I actually won the tickets to this conference!  Lucky me, right?!  From the vendors to the sponsors and attendees, the energy in the place was exciting and fun! The warehouse was packed with aspiring creatives who were eager to learn from a talented list of panelists, hosts and mentors.  It was a pretty long day, (8 AM – 8 PM) but it was informative and encouraging!

So, what did I learn?  Dreams don’t work unless YOU do. I learned that investing in myself and in my future requires hard work.  When I first started my blog, I didn’t realize the amount of work and time spent behind it.  I am still acquiring new things as I go! So far, it has been a little challenging trying to find balance between work and my personal life, but you know what? I am doing what I LOVE!  I also learned that building relationships and a strong community is valuable and should be mutually beneficial. They also talked about developing and creating a personal brand, but staying true and authentic to yourself at the same time.  This advice was beneficial for me because by staying true to myself, I am able to discover my purpose and capable of following through and reaching my goals with blogging. I left the conference feeling confident, ready to work and tackle on new challenges.  Today, I’d like to leave you with a positive reminder in hopes that you will utilize it one day : No matter what you do, keep it honest, simple, and most importantly, keep it YOU. ❤

GUEST POST: Camryn of “CORAL AND CHARM”

Hello sweet readers of our favorite fashion girl, Grace! I think I can take just a moment to acknowledge our mutual agreement that she’s just the cutest, right? Well, I’m more than excited to get the chance to guest post today and talk about all of the good things we love: CLOTHES.

My name is Camryn, and I blog over at Coral & Charm! I wish I could say that I also share in the warm, sunny-weather state of California, but currently I’m trying to stay bundled up against the winter of Virginia. I woke up to sunshine and slipped on these cute snakeskin flats, but my love for style got ahead of my toes inability to self-heat. I mean, fashion first though ha (half joking…). But in honesty when you find a pair of shoes like these it just becomes too much to have to wait to wear them! Right now my eyes automatically navigate to any animal print in the store, and when it’s in shoe form, I’m done. I need it.

I threw on this cozy wool sweater, jeans, and then a statement necklace to dress it up a bit. Easy to replicate and easy to repeat. Sometimes you just need simplicity, you know?

 

#XOXO

“Pass the hat”

Happy Thursday everyone!  It is almost the weekend and I am looking forward to it!  I wanted to share with you one of my favorite looks and I hope you like it.  🙂

A hat is one of my favorite accessories and I am always on a hunt for more to add to my growing collection! It is perfect when you are having a bad hair day or you simply want to take that simple outfit to the next level.  I found this gorgeous hat at Madewell and I was surprised on how it actually fit my tiny head because most hats are huge on me!  The ribbon detail adds a little character which I love!

I dressed my black lace slip (any simple LBD will do!) and warmed it up with a rich autumn hued, oversized sweater (obsessed with anything berry right now).  To anchor the look, I chose my Senso leopard booties because I love a leopard accent with anything!  It just makes any outfit perk up and to me, it’s all about having fun!

Sometimes during California winters, I just want to be able to wish the chill away, but I have grown to embrace the lower temperatures with some chic styling but keeping it cozy at the same time.  And to make my simplest looks stand out, I just top it off with a hat! ❤
