Foxy Fox


(This is what you get for trying to get something done with cats around.) 

This dress is making me so excited for spring to come.  Basically anything Stone Cold Fox makes me long for summer.  Or just a trip to Cali.

Dandelion Daze

Vintage Sweater / Miss Wu Dress by Jason Wu
I'm finally posting these photos from warmer days, surrounded by dandelions, and feeling jealous of my warm self.  Now it's already time to start looking forward to spring.  I want to be back out 
biking and having picnics, floating in green fields and soaking up the sun.

Party Season

Sandro Dress / 14th & Union Shoes / J.Crew Earings / Topshop and H&M Rings

It's nearing the end of the holidays, which means the end of holiday parties.  The time to break out all your best pretty dresses and smart suits.  I'm looking forward to the last big party of the year.  New 
Years Eve.  Sure, NYE usually never lives up to the enormous expectation put on it, but at least the dressing up part always kills it.  Nothing is "too much" on NYE.  I love wearing my sparkliest dress and
not being even close to the sparkliest person at the party.  NYE is a time to be extra daring with your wardrobe and while I have no idea what I'm going to wear, I look forward to the possibilities.

Varsity

Rag and Bone Sweater / Remain Skirt
For my first post back after an incredibly long hiatus I am happy to be featuring the best sweater 
I have ever known.  Oversized, baggy, and warm with just a little bit of sexy in a deep V.  Plus 
it's preppy in the best way.  The sweater I've been living in all season.

Huntington

Topshop Jumpsuit / Club Monaco Blazer / RACHEL Rachel Roy Shoes 
Visiting the Huntington Library and Botanical Gardens was one of the highlights of my recent trip to LA.  I could have spent all day there.  Each garden was a complete experience and amazing in its own way.  As I was about to go through the Japanese garden for a second time it began to rain and was forced to leave.  I wore my favorite Topshop jumpsuit which may just be the most comfortable thing I own.  It's amazing.  I pack it for almost every trip for that reason.  Also, it doesn't wrinkle.  Incredible piece.

Geo Sands

Michael Michael Kors Dress / Report Sandals / H&M Clutch
I still remember the day this dress caught eye in the store.  I immediately knew I was leaving with it.  I love the 70s vibe and the colors are amazing.  It was perfect for a warm, but windy day at the beach and farmers market.  Long sleeved dresses get me almost every time.

LA Sky

Made for Macy's Sweater / Astr Skirt / T by Alexander Wang Shirt / H&M Bag / Zara Shoes
After an entire year I'm finally back in LA.  I couldn't be happier.  After going for the first time last year was completely in love with the laid back city.  I'm already trying to plan when I can come back.
I'm just as psyched about these Zara boots I just got.  I feel like I've been waiting years for the perfect black ankle books and finally found them.  I've been wearing this pair with everything since I got them.  I love the ankle strap and cut out and the chunky heel.  It gives the shoe weight without being bulky.  I could talk about these boots all day.  Wearing these boots around LA is my dream day.

Captiva

Zara Dress / Target Earrings
This Zara dress is one of my favorite purchases of the year.  I love how romantic it is.  It's also really easy and actually quite different than anything I own.  I got it right before it got cold, so I've worn it mostly layered under huge long sweaters.  It was nice to just throw it on without any hassle.  Like about half of my other Zara purchases I bought it out of necessity.  While walking around in New York it started raining and the clothes I was wearing were way too wet so I decided I'd just pick something new up.  Same story goes for some of my favorite loafers I got after my shoes were completely soaked though when puddles were unavoidable.  In any situation like this my first thought is to run to Zara.  I'm always afraid I'll hate the purchases later and that I was just convinced I loved them because I also needed them, but the opposite always tends to happen.  Maybe it's because I feel indebted to them because they save me from being cold and wet.  Or Zara just rules and I can always find something there I love, I just need a good excuse to spend money.

Tropica

Nanette Lepore Swim Suit
Sanibel Island is one of my favorite places.  I have so many good memories there.  It is so quaint and relaxing without the crazy beach atmosphere so many places tend to have.  Bonus that it was actually hot out when I was there last.  Gave me a chance to sport my new bathing suit.  I always come back to one pieces.  I love the look of them.
