I was so excited to get this new full floral skirt I wore it the first day I got it!  Some blogger babes and I were headed out to a new restaurant called Faith and Flower in Downtown LA and this is the look I went with. I usually like to make every look a bit edgy and not so feminine, but this look was just too perfect to pass up and the girls loved it!  How about the embellishment on the collar and the heels?  So chic!  Shop my look below:

Finally, I can wear a pair of winter boots!  I am by no means a fan of super cold or dreary weather (reason #100 as to why I live in LA), but there’s nothing wrong with a little chill in the air and a few days this week I felt it!  It’s always fun to get into a new season because I have been stocking up on new gear and can’t wait to wear it!  Cozy sweaters, scarves and boots are exactly what this girl has been craving!  I love this simple but sophisticated look perfect for daytime or even a casual date night to the movies.  The oversized cut of the super soft sweater mixed with distressed skinny jeans and my new fashion-forward Ahnu boots is the definition of effortless chic!  Shop the look below:

Ahnu Octavia Boots, Brandy // Calypso St. Barth Venice Dropped Shoulder Cashmere Sweater // Old Navy Rockstar Distressed Jeans // Spun Scarves by Subtle Luxury Diamond Tribe Scarf // Celine Nano Luggage Bag (similar HERE and affordable version HERE) // Jennifer Fisher Mini Nail Cuff

EDITRIX PICKS: FALL BEAUTY BUYS

 

I get super dry skin in the winter, especially because Los Angeles is a very dry climate year round, so it’s important for me to switch up my skincare and beauty needs for richer, more luxurious treatments.  You also have to switch up your lipsticks for more fall colors and and foundation for something that is a bit more moisturizing.  All of these products here are my favorites right now and are perfect for the season ahead.  See below for my comments on why I love each of them and if you are in the market for some new beauty goods, click the photos above or links below to shop!  Let me know if you have a favorite I should try this fall by leaving me a comment!

Kai Bathing Bubbles (so luxurious – my favorite smell) // Chanel Hydra Beauty Creme (I used to have dry skin before using this at night) // Essie Spa Foot and Leg Cream (new from Essie and it’s perfect for dry feet and after shaving your legs) //

Jergens Natural Glow Moisturizer (now that summer is gone you need to keep your tan; if you want to splurge here is the most on the luxurious one that I also use: La Mer Gradual Tan Moisturizer) // MAC Frost Lipstick, New York Apple (I love this shade for fall – and frost is very on trend right now) // Bliss Fabulous Foaming Face Wash (doesn’t dry out your skin with winter coming) //

L’Occitane Shea Butter Hand Cream (I use this lovely cream every night before bed) // Leonor Greyl Pre-Shampoo Oil Treatment (luxurious hair treatment for dry hair – I use it year round) // Dolce and Gabbana Sheer Radiance Primer (Gives and extra bit of moisture and helps foundation glide on easily)

WARMING UP

When it’s dreary out there is no better way to brighten your day than with the perfect coral colored coat!

Can we just talk about how chic coats are these days?  Even just a few years ago I feel like there weren’t great affordable options on the market, but now I am loving the trendy and WARM pieces, including this amazing coat!  It is such a statement maker and will dress up any jeans and tee look or be a great addition to a dress with tights.  Another great thing about a boiled wool one like this, is it’s not too heavy so it would be super chic with a little fur vest over it to add one more dimension to make the ensemble even more interesting.  I would also love to see some contrasting colored scarves with this.  But if you are running to a casual date night, a look like I have on is perfect!  I always talk about faux leather jeans, but come on, they go with everything, and when it is fall/winter in LA you will see me living in these with more casual plaid button-downs!  Chic and effortless!  Shop my whole look below and check out the other fab coats at LandsEnd.com:

Aggghhh I cannot believe it has already been two years since we got married!  It feels like yesterday!

I guess time flies when you are having fun because my anniversary totally crept up on me!  My husband and I have been together for almost nine years now, which blows my mind, but we were married this exact date two years ago on a bluff overlooking the ocean in Maui.  With just 26 of our closest family and friends, it was a week I think about often and wish I could relive every year.  From the paddleboading to snorkel trip and just hanging by the pool, it was the most fabulous week and of course day of my life!

I am so grateful for everything in my life and I know I wouldn’t be where I am without my husband.  He is not only my husband, but also my best friend, confidant, travel companion and business partner – how lucky am I?!  I am not saying it has all been gum drops and lollipops, because relationships and marriages are a LOT of work, but it’s all worth it when you find someone you want to be with.  HAPPY #2 BABE!

PERFECTLY BLACK

No matter what time of year it is, leather is always a good choice.

Distressed denim, leather and chunky heels – how can you go wrong!  This is the  perfect combo for day or night and such an effortlessly chic look.  It doesn’t take a stylist to look polished when heading out, but just the investment in a few key basics you can re-wear from season to season.  Get the look below:

We are all constantly on the go, so having heels that are chic AND comfortable is a dream.  No matter where I go or travel I always want to look my best, but sometimes it is hard to do that without sacrificing comfort.  I recently found the perfect pair of shoes that I am able to shop all day in or walk all over Europe in, while still looking fashion-forward.  These new Rockport Total Motion booties with the key lock are so on trend with the pointed-toe and the heel is the perfect height while doing some site-seeing.  I literally wore them every night in Europe while exploring the cities we traveled without a single blister!  I have always been powered by exploration, even in my own town, because I love seeing and learning new things, so when I can feel and look good while doing it, I am one happy girl!

Show us how you power your day and you could win a pair of Total Motion heels or even a trip to Miami!
