Happy Hump Day all! I have been looking for more colorful backgrounds for my outfit posts and came across this yellow brick wall. I think burgundy actually blends in quite nicely, yes? Although harem pants are not always flattering for petite girls, I still love them. The right pair will give you the perfect hour-glass … Continue reading

I ventured out to San Juan Capistrano this past weekend for brunch (separate post on brunch to come). This missionary town is full of character and remnants of the old California. It’s quite a drive south but definitely worth a half-day trip. For all the shabby/rustic chic lovers out there, this place is picture perfect. … Continue reading

Happy Tuesday all! Quick outfit post from this past weekend…enjoy! I used to be a big Gilt fan and would literally count down for their big sales. However, more often than not, I did not like my purchases and with Gilt’s less than optimal return policy (not to mention they charge for shipping!), I ended … Continue reading

TGIF everyone!!! Back to back post this week…another lazy/casual look from last weekend. Enjoy! Feeling rather patriotic for brunch…wearing maroon, white and blue!

“coffee break”

“coffee break”

I work right across the street from an outdoor shopping area by the beach. The close proximity to prime retail real estate often results in impromptu “coffee breaks” that leads to running into either JCREW, Club Monaco, or Zara for a quick retail fix. Last Wednesday, I walked out to “refill my Starbucks coffee” and … Continue reading
