in the night

inthenight6 inthenight7 inthenight1 inthenightBlack, white, and some gold. A color combo that never fails and is alway appropriate for a night out. I usually insert some gold with jewelry but this time my shoes and new iPhone case was just enough gold to forgo the usual jewelry. Speaking of which, my guy friends went crazy when they found out that Moschino iPhone case wasn’t a purse. Such a handy little piece. Keeps my phone safely chained next to me and doubles as a source of amusement for the dudes.

I have this horrible habit of losing my phone when I go out so this case was just the thing to start a crazy Vegas weekend celebrating some big 3-0’s.

call for comfort

call for comfortEasiest thing to pull together for an effortless vibe- button up blouse and shorts.  I was debating between boots or flats with this outfit and decided to go with the flats.  The gold cap toe gives it a more sophisticated touch and I love how it accessorizes my outfit more.  They may be flats but I feel so much more dressier in them!

I enjoyed such a delicious lunch at Farfalla with my family while I was in LA!  My go-to Italian spot whenever I’m in town.

Winter in January…

I knew that LA had amazing weather but the 80 degree weather I had during my week there was beyond awesome.  I basically got to experience summer during winter!  The trench was the perfect light piece to throw over my outfit.

Couldn’t leave LA without having a taste of this sweet pastry filled with honey, cinnamon, and peanuts.  It comes freshly made and I love that they sell it from a cart.

Pink and black has never looked so glorious together.

I used to hate bucket bags because they just seemed so old fashioned but now I can’t get enough of them! The last few months have been spent drooling over these bags and this Gucci version is just gorgeous!

This black military trench dress is just killing it. Especially paired with that newsboy cap.

Can never say no to anything fuzzy and soft. The soft grey color is so pretty! I also really like how they paired these masculine pants with such a soft color.

Cocoon coat + animal print. Give it to me now! Love the striking balance between the yellow and black.

Just another look at it.

All black and some leather. Need I say more?

So simple but so perfect! The leather cuff accents makes it even more special.

So good!

I can never say no to furs. Especially white furs for some reason. I usually see furs styled with heels but I’m loving this casual approach with loafers.

I can’t stop thinking about and staring at this marvelously simple but stunning collection! I love the bright accents of color and the leather accents that really makes the piece special. And I seriously need one of those hats. It looks amazing paired with every outfit! The hat is such a perfection.
