What to Wear to Meet His Family

What to Wear to Meet His Family

So, the holidays are upon us, which means you may be preparing to meet your boyfriend’s family for the very first time. While this can be a pretty scary moment, if you are prepared, and dressed appropriately, you will do just fine! I think the most important place to start, when trying to decide on the perfect outfit, would be to ask yourself, and him, a handful of questions to get an idea of how his family is. -Questions to Consider- Is his family traditional? Or more easy going? Will it be a big, fancy dinner? Or a more casual one? Since I am not sure exactly where your boyfriend’s family lies with the above, I went ahead and created one outfit that could work for both styles, simply swap out the OTK boots for some heels, to create a dressier look instead. -Some universal things to remember- Never show too much skin. Keep your…
The Bernardo Winery in San Diego

The Bernardo Winery in San Diego

While living in Rancho Bernardo for the past year, I discovered the cutest local winery I wanted to share with you all today. For anyone who loves exploring San Diego, and it's hidden treasures, The Bernardo Winery is definitely a great place to check out! Not only do they have their very own vineyard, they also have restaurants, a cafe, gift shops, wine tasting, live music and even a small farmer's market every Friday. The actual property is, of course, beautiful, covered with plush trees, relaxing lawn areas and an overall cutesy vintage farm decor. I don't drink wine, but, for those of you that do... they have a $10 wine tasting which allows you to pick five different wines from their list, and with each selection you get a complimentary chocolate that goes with your selected wine. Overall, The Bernardo Winery is a super cute place for small weddings, anniversaries, intimate celebrations or just a…
Leopard Smoking Slippers by Naughty Monkey

Leopard Smoking Slippers by Naughty Monkey

Every so often, I come across a shoe at work that I instantly fall in love with, and this Media Mash Up, hot pink and leopard smoking slipper by Naughty Monkey is most definitely one of them. Not only is this slipper super comfortable and cute, you can do so much with it! I pair these slippers with all black for a quick but stylish office look, and then when I want a more playful outfit, I wear these with a pop of pink. How cute is the beaded detailing paired with the leopard pony fur? Love, love, love. Since these are a leather style, they will stretch out after a wear or two. I am between an 8.5 and a 9 and the 8.5 fits like a glove.

How to Wear Leopard Pumps from Day to Date!

How to Wear Leopard Pumps from Day to Date!

I recently did a style segment for work- the topic? How to take leopard pumps from day to date. I wanted to put together outfits that girls could actually piece together with items they may already own, because, let's be real- who has the time or money to go and shop for all of these outfits they see online? While sometimes it is fun to shop for new things, it's also nice to be able to recycle the items you already own, into new looks! Leopard print will always be one of my favorite prints, and will definitely be a big trend for the Fall & Winter this year, so, here is how to wear leopard pumps from day to date! ✦ Day Outfit Details ✦ To pull off such a wild heel during the day, and possibly to the office, I thought it was best to pair them with simple pieces. A clean…

Leyla Milani Clip-In Hair Extensions

Every so often I get in these super glamorous moods, in which I crave big, volumous hair and over the top make up. Today, I was in one of those moods, so, I decided to wear my Leyla Milani clip-in hair extensions and dust off my smokey eye make up skills. Part of my job is taking cute, creative photos of the new Naughty Monkey shoe arrivals, giving me the perfect excuse to really glam myself up for the day. These Leyla Milani clip-in hair extensions really are great for days like today, where quick, glamourous hair is needed. These are 20 inch long extensions and come with 7 pieces of hair in each package. 24 inch clip-in extensions are also available.

Celine 41023/S Sunglasses

Celine 41023/S Sunglasses

Sorry for my usual disappearing act, but I've been busy livin'. I also haven't really been updating because my camera broke, and well, I'm waiting for it to be repaired. I did, however, swoop myself up a new pair of sunglasses I can share with you all. For the most part, I love cheap sunglasses because, let's be real, it's way too easy to drop them, scratch them, lose them etc... but, every once in a while, I find a pair that are worth the money. For me, these Celine 41023/S sunglasses were it. I first tried these on at Nordstrom in San Francisco, and after leaving them behind in the store that day, I ran back the very next day to get them. This style sat a little big on my face, which is odd because I have a wide face, however, Nordstrom was able to heat them up…

Nike Free Inneva Woven SP

If there is one thing I am a sucker for, it's sneakers. I prefer sneakers over heels any day, so, when I came across these new Nike Free Inneva Woven SP sneakers, in two colors, you better believe I had to have both. Two of my favorite things, the color pink, and Nike, together in one fabulous new sneaker? Must add to cart. The best thing about my love affair with sneakers is, it's totally acceptable to wear them with just about anything these days. Toss these beauties on with your favorite boyfriend jeans, a crop top sweater, and skip around town in your new found sporty style.
