Graphic Printed Turtleneck

Turtleneck: Forever21  |  Skirt: Forever21  |  OTK Boots: JustFab (old - LOVE these)  |  Bag: Rebecca Minkoff  |  Bangles: Margaret Elizabeth & Margaret Elizabeth c/o  |  Lipstick: Covergirl Forever Fawn  |  Earrings: Tory Burch

Happy Monday!  I am really excited to share this outfit post with you guys because I think it might be one of my favorite outfits ever.  For fall, I am really loving a turtleneck paired with something high-waisted (skirt or shorts) and both of these pieces give off a really high-end vibe but they are SO affordable!  You can get both 21% off today which is even better. 

Our weekend was pretty quiet considering the holiday, but we did make it down to 4th Street Market in Santa Ana (if you are local, it's a must).  It's basically a market with delicious gourmet food and dessert stands.  I am vegan, and I get so pumped to find some of my favorite foods made vegan -- they ended up having a vegan poke bowl which used sweet potato instead of fish and made all my dreams come true!  I used to love poke and any type of sushi for that matter, so to be able to have all the flavors without the fish was really an exciting moment for me. 

Anyways, back to the fashion - I hope you love this outfit as much as I do, and thanks for stopping by!

Happy Black Friday! I hope you all had a wonderful Thankgiving yesterday! We had dinner with my family and we were so happy to have Jesse's sister in town to join us. Now on to the sales -- I find that actually most Black Friday sales online are better than the Cyber Monday sales. I've rounded up my favorites, and hope you find some good stuff!

Turtleneck Sweater Vest

Black Turtleneck: Target  |  Turtleneck Vest: Adam Lippes for Target (on sale!)  |  Leggings: Uniqlo (old - similar)  |  Booties: Just Fab (got my eye on this pair - and they're on sale!)  |  Bag: Rebecca Minkoff  |  Earrings: Gorjana  |  Lipstick: Brazen Raisen by Covergirl

Happy Thanksgiving!  I hope you all are having a nice relaxing day with family and/or friends.  One of my favorite things to wear on thanksgiving is a pair of structured leggings and an oversized sweater, like the outfit above.  I think it's the perfect marriage of comfortable, festive, and appropriate.

My sweater vest is on major sale and is such a unique piece that I'm excited to play around with.  I really want to try wearing it with a skirt and tights.  

Thanks for reading, and stay tuned tomorrow for some AMAZING online Black Friday sales!

Wednesday Wishlist

1  |  2  |  3  |  4  |  5

I've got a thing for olive green and shades of burgundy right now... (if you follow me on instagram, and saw last night's photo, you already know that).  The second I saw these amazing heels I knew I had to make an outfit around them.  The are the perfect heels for the holidays and are at the top of my wishlist right now.

Golden Holiday Party Makeup Look

Consideration was provided by Target    
I love any excuse to try out a new make-up look, and the holidays present a great opportunity to try a new look that is festive and perfect for gatherings.  Whenever I’m trying something new, or buying things for a specific look, I stick to affordable beauty products over the higher-end stuff.


Target has always been my go-to place for affordable beauty products as they typically have cheaper prices than a lot of drugstores, but I am especially impressed by their new Beauty Concierge service.

Carla, the beauty concierge at my local Target, immediately greeted me. I explained to her I wanted a “holiday” look that would work for any type of holiday party. She started with skincare. Being that she’s an esthetician, she knew her stuff.  She started rattling off all the benefits of the Neutrogena gel eye cream, and even though I couldn’t pronounce some of the stuff she was saying, I knew I needed it.


We moved to foundation, concealer, and eye primer where she helped me match my color in foundation and concealer. That was really helpful, because it’s tough to do when you’re by yourself and can’t see your face next to the bottle. She asked about my skin type and picked a foundation that would work with it. I love that it’s not super matte for the winter months where your skin can be more dry, and it’s got a great buildable coverage.


Next she led me to the new Maybelline Gilded in Gold holiday palette. This palette has pretty much everything you need, but she recommended a different eyeliner and lip color. I told her I love a cat-eye and she recommended a gel liner because you have more control, and even let me know that brush that came with it wasn’t the best. She led me to a thin angled brush that would work better for precision and I am so glad she did, as I would not have thought to do that.


She also pointed out that it would be fun and festive to put a gold liner on top of the black liner, which was such a great idea, and I absolutely love the way it turned out.


For mascara, she pointed out the new L’Oreal Voluminous Superstar mascara. She said it was the same formula as the Voluminous mascara that is highly coveted, but they’ve added the volumizing base.  She said if you layered it, you could achieve the same look as a certain designer mascara that is super expensive.


Now I consider myself to be almost an expert in make-up, but I definitely learned a lot of new things from Carla, and it was so nice to shop with someone helping who knew their stuff.  She knew a lot of dupes for high-end makeup and also a lot about skincare – and I think they go hand in hand. She was extremely helpful in helping me find affordable, good quality makeup to create my holiday look.


What do you guys think of the final look? I love the dark lip as opposed to a standard red, and the touch of gold eyeliner is so stunning, that even pictures don’t do it justice.

Grid Print Culottes

Turtle neck: Boohoo c/o  |  Culottes: Boohoo c/o  |  Bracelet: Soko x Pencils of Promise  |  Heels: JustFab (similar)  |  Bag: Gigi New York c/o  |  Lipstick: TooFaced Melted Chihuahua  |  Earrings: Tory Burch

I won't deny I was a bit skeptical about trying out the culottes trend.  I love the way they look but was afraid I would be drowning in them.  Luckily this pair from is on the shorter side so it looks really tailored and put-together, in my opinion.

We had a pretty low-key weekend.  Both J and I had a lot of work to do so we stayed home mostly to catch up on things.  Weekends are the best get things done before the buzz of the week begins.  We did get to see the movie Steve Jobs, and thought it was really well done.  Have guys seen any good movies lately?  Let me know in the comments - there's so many I want to see!

Hope you all had a fabulous weekend, and thanks for stopping by!
