I have absolutely no idea what Bryce and I will end up doing for Valentine's Day, but I will definitely be prepared for almost anything with this sweet little ruffle swing dress!  Although we aren't really the type to go hiking or exercise at all on holidays so I should be good to go! Haha It's been really warm here in OC the past few days and I'm enjoying the sleeveless dresses and tops and I'm definitely getting excited for Spring! It's supposed to rain here tomorrow and this weekend so I'm enjoying this while it lasts.  What are you doing and - more importantly - wearing on Valentine's Day?  I hope something fabulous and fun! XOXO

so much to be thankful for

Dress: TOPSHOP | Heels: Steve Madden | Bracelets: David Yurman & David Yurman | Earrings: Kate Spade | Clutch: Rebecca Minkoff | Sunglasses: Celine from OPTX Eyewear 

Thanksgiving is my absolute favorite holiday and while there is always so much to be thankful for every year, this year I'm especially thankful for my future niece who will be here in just a little over a month from now, as well as the health of her mama, my sister-in-law, Andrea.  We had the honor of showering her this past weekend and it was so much fun! We had it at Orange Hill Restaurant, which is known to have one of the best - if not the best - views in all of Orange County.  My niece will be named Scarlet, so naturally there were pops of red everywhere! Florals by Jenny created darling centerpieces comprised of red garden roses, spray roses, ranunculas and eucalyptus in sweet baby carriages festooned with tulle and red jewels of course! And in keeping with the theme, I found a sweet little dress from Topshop with the perfect pop of red in honor of Miss Scarlet!  It was an amazing celebration and we can't wait to meet the newest addition to our family!

heat wave

Off-The-Shoulder Mini Dress: Lucca | Booties: Jeffrey Campbell 'Cromwell' | Watch: Movado | Tote Bag: Tory Burch 'York' | Sunglasses: Celine special ordered from OPTX Eyewear

So much for crisp fall weather. Ha! The temperatures have been in the high 80s here and don't seem to have plans to cool down any time soon. The good news about that is that my summery looks are still very much in play! I just love this little off-the-shoulder number. It's light and airy and still looks great with a pair of booties (although sandals would be more comfortable in this heat!).  Are any of you still wearing any warm weather staples? XO

fall prints

Dress: Leith (40% off!) | Over-the-Knee Boots: Steve Madden | Purse: Valentino | Watch: Movado | Sunglasses: Celine special ordered from OPTX Eyewear 

I just love pairing a shift dress with over-the-knee boots - so quintessential fall! It's still in the 80's here, so a loose dress is very much welcomed, but I just can't resist bringing out my boots, heat wave and all.  This sweet printed mock neck shift dress is perfect for fall with the deep red and purple florals and a huge bonus - it's 40% off right now and down to $41! Nordstrom is having a huge fall clearance sale right now with up to 40% off select items, including this dress.  The sale ends on the 13th so be sure to pick up your fall essentials this weekend before prices go up!  

Sizing tip: The dress runs a tiny bit on the small side. I'm wearing an XS and I could stand for it to be a little bit more blousey. XOXO

Who doesn’t love a good leopard print, well, anything?! This cute little ruffled leopard blouse by Topshop is super fun and goes great with pretty much any basic in your closet.  I’m guilty of getting in a “neutrals” rut and don’t get me wrong, there’s nothing wrong with sticking with the basics, but it’s fun to add in a little pop of print.  And I know you all recognize these heels – I bought them last Spring in three colors and I’m still living in them. They’re super affordable and go with everything so I highly recommend!  I’m thinking of getting them in this gorgeous dusty rose color… what do you think? 

I hope you are all enjoying the start of the holiday season – promise me you won’t overlook Thanksgiving okay?! It feels like the forgotten holiday, with Christmas movies playing and decorations already up. While I love Christmas, Thanksgiving is actually my favorite holiday so I’m holding off on the Christmas tunes for just a litttttle bit longer. XOXO

love trumps hate

A lot has happened this week that has left half of the country in fear and sadness, and the other half jubilant.  And while many of us are still trying to come to terms with what our future looks like, the most important thing is to choose love. Help those who are less fortunate and love your neighbor as yourself.  I've always worn my heart on my sleeve and I always will. Love conquers all. Onward.

#nsale booties under $100

There are so many great staples available at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale going on right now and one of my favorite items to grab before fall hits are booties! Living in Southern California doesn't really require a huge collection of boots, but booties work great year round even when the weather is still warm. In fact, I love pairing them with dresses and shorts even more so than pants. I've rounded up my fav booties that are all UNDER $100 for you below! I already snagged a pair of the Steve Madden "Nylie" Chelsea bootie for only $72!

the perfect sweater <3

Happy #nsale Friday! I'm sure you've heard and seen by now that the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is underway for everyone!  I ordered a few things during the pre-sale and I am so excited to share them with you!! I am in love with this comfy sweater! It's perfect for summer nights because it's lightweight and works well layering with just about anything which will also make it a go-to this fall as well. It comes in seven different colors so you'll definitely find one you love! One thing to note is that it's quite oversized (I'm wearing an XS) so be sure to order your true size.  Now on to these jeans!! They are so so cute and I love the fit! In my case, they fit true to size. They're only $44 and sizes are going fast so be sure to order them before they're gone! Stay tuned for more sale outfit reviews throughout the week! XO

#nsale early access - what I bought!

It feels like Christmas in July! The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale pre-sale has begun! Nordstrom cardholders get exclusive early access in-store and online now through July 21st which is amazing because so many of the top items sell out super fast! I already took advantage of my early access and probably went a little overboard, but it only happens once a year so why not?! Check out my purchases below and be sure to head back here in the next few days to see full outfit posts in my new stuff! Have fun!! XO
