Packing Light

Happy Halloween! Any fun plans this evening? Who's dressing up? I'm sure I'll throw together a last-minute costume for one party or another. 
Here's a second outfit from my trip to Arizona, and you'll probably notice I'm wearing the same leggings and boots that I was in my post from Tuesday. One of the biggest things I strive for on short trips is packing light - planning outfits with items that can be worn more than once without being obvious. Especially when you are packing a large item like over-the-knee boots, this tip comes in very handy. 

Thanks for all the sweet comments about my new hair - I cut off 7 inches, and am loving it. I also added some golden highlights, and am planning to add a few more next time. 
I love this look - it's so simple, but makes such a statement, and I felt like it was perfect for AZ. 
Have a happy and safe Halloween ladies!

Color Crush: Black

You can never have too much black. Above are a few favorites I wouldn't mind adding to my wardrobe! Happy hump day!

P.S - Check out our fall date night looks on Glamour!

Painted Desert

I decided to take a quick trip to Arizona over the weekend - trying to soak up as much sun as I can before our big move (can't believe it's almost here!). Our flight is booked, our house is empty, and we're ready to go...or as ready as we'll ever be. Just a few more events in California this week before we head to the East Coast. Here's a look I wore yesterday for an afternoon of shopping in Scottsdale.  
I've been searching for this Vince poncho for so long, and finally found my size on eBay - everywhere was sold out of a small. It's also on sale at Nordstrom (AND they just restocked the small, for much less than I paid on eBay, total bummer - but great for you!). 
I posted this bag on instagram last week, and have had a lot of people ask about it. I found it at J. Crew and couldn't believe how great it looked for the price, so I had to get it - it's the perfect size for an everyday cross-body bag. 
These boots are going to be my 'go to' pair all winter long - so in love with them. I'm off to the airport to catch my flight back to California! xx

Trip to Jacksonville

Happy Monday! I just got back from visiting my friend down in Jacksonville. After four days of cocktails, sun, and exploring the city I can hardly keep my eyes open today. Going to need A LOT of coffee.
Can't beat $2 drinks at the Lemon Bar

 Had to get chicken n waffles!
Miss you already Kendall! xo

Life in California

As my big move to NYC is approaching quickly, I can't help but think of all the things I will miss about life in California. From the beaches to the friends we've made, I'm sad to leave a lot behind, but definitely excited for new adventures in the Big Apple. I'm feeling a little down about leaving, so if anyone has any great NYC experiences, or places to go once I'm there, I'd love to hear them - it will definitely help cheer me up! ;) For now...a few of my favorite memories from our time in SoCal.
