Hi there! 

Happy New Year! We rang in the New Year 2019 and I’m so grateful for what this year will bring and all that happened in 2018 for me... it was truly a monumental year and I never say that. There’s more details as to why that was on my saved story on my Instagram profile!

Above is the look I wore to a fun New Years party in Los Angeles (my new home)! It’s still so strange to say that he he. But even if we are no longer in the holidays we can still sparkle for a night out, so I wanted to feature this look now available at Topshop. The top is Topshop (psst the petite one is on sale)! And the pants are Nordstrom (Blank NYC jeans but I don’t think this specific pair is still available). My booties are H&M and the little marching clutch is Tory Burch (but the clutch isn’t very recent unfortunately). 

Have a fabulous night out! You don’t need the holidays to step out and have some fun. I love making future plans by buying tickets ahead of time and knowing I have that night out to look forward to. I have musical and concert tickets coming up that I’m so excited to go to!

Hi there! 

This week is devoted to the classic Rock & Roll band tee. I worked with designer Tasch on this post. I just love her stuff since she repurposes a classic band tee. In this look she has added holes and burnt others into the oversized black Nirvana tee I’m wearing. I styled it with my Blank NYC vegan leather leggings, H&M metallic ankle booties and Bebe leather moto jacket, finishing it off with my new YSL medium Kate purse in all black. 

I love the way a band tee can add edge to any outfit, and since this t-shirt is oversized I wanted to pair it with a legging and jacket and add an ankle boot. The all black edge gets funky with a metallic boot which is a huge trend at the moment. This classic yet edgy look is timeless. 

Hope you are having a groovy weekend! 

Xo,
