more bounce in california

This past weekend was just delightful, I tell ya. Friday afternoon I flew out to LA to see my sweet, beautiful galpal Hannah who's in school at USC. Hours later, the rest of the sweet ladies arrived and our fabulous girl's weekend commenced! One In & Out burger, day trip to Venice Beach, wine and tapas bar and an ATO registered later (and the massive bruise to prove it!) and we were immersed in all that Los Angeles night life had to offer. I am IN LOVE with the LA experience and found it rather (and somewhat surprisingly) difficult to leave. So blessed to have had spent time in such a wonderful city with such sweet friends!

banded python

Leopard dominated last year, and while it still retains a strong presence on the retail floor this winter, it's python and snakeskin's time to shine! Each season almost always has an animal, floral, or patterned print accompanying the dominating color story and this season, the slithering reptile is taking the stage. My personal preference leans toward the more natural-toned skins as opposed to the neon greens and bright blue hues. Don't get me wrong, I'm certainly a girl who loves a pop of color...but when that pop of color involves a very unnatural looking, somewhat unsightly animal skin- I draw the line. A natural-toned python print is so fun to layer and play around with other textures like the black leather and suede contrasts pictured here!

taken by tacori

I have been truly taken by all of the fine jewels over at Tacori for some time now, so when I saw that M Loves M was doing a Tacori giveaway I downright almost passed the flip out. To say this ring is absolutely gorg is, well, an absolute understatement. We're looking at rose gold+smokey quartz+diamonds...are you kidding? Entering was a no brainer and you can be a part of the fun too! Simply visit M Loves M and follow suit. Here's to diamonds, fabulous baubles from Tacori, and a little luck...

friday lull

One T-DAP, flu shot and stress fracture later, needless to say I have been less than myself this week. This is one of those Fridays that I need for the sake of my mind and my body. Not to mention the fact that this walking boot on my left foot had left me less than fashionable and utterly more clumsy than usual, bleh. Here's to a weekend full of de-stressing and recovery for all!

subtle transition

subtle transition

As Halloween falls further and further behind us, we are that much farther into the Fall season while fast approaching the Winter season and all that it entails, including the much anticipated holidays! If you meander by any retail store this time of year, they're always jumping the gun and putting together countless faux Christmas trees and holiday garland. For most, the sight of such actions is enough to make you cringe so I thought it a fun idea to hunt down a color scheme that would make the transition into the holiday season a little easier and a lot more subtle. It didn't take long to stumble upon the Winter-Holiday nail polish collection by OPI's Burlesque theme and I was immediately inspired! The dusty rose and army green shades with a dash of gold sequined glamour is the perfect way to prep your holiday style while not losing touch with the earthy, rich-spice tones of color hot this fall! Thoughts?
