Bridal Shower part 2- Girlfriends + Gifts

I was highly convinced that emotions wouldn’t hit me until I walked down the aisle. BUT as soon as I walked into a room filled with my family, sister, & of course my girlfriends that I love most …I immediately started tearing up. It’s moments like these that remind me of how blessed I am. My girlfriends showered me with lots & lots of gifts, but most importantly  words of encouragement for the next chapter in my life…..

Recently I got back from NYC where my best friends hosted my bachelorette party! Now let me tell you… 8 girls runnin’ wild in NYC was quite THE adventure! a big thank you to my sister Janey & Linette for planning this unforgettable weekend! Also a BIG BIG BIG thank you to EVENTI hotel for hosting my bachelorette party, and allowing 8 crazy California gals live it up! All joking aside.. Eventi had to be one of my favorite boutique hotels i’ve stayed at in NYC. Amazing service,  lovely staff, great decor, and not to mention the beds were beyond fluffy & comfy! If you’re planning on visiting the city anytime soon…I definitely recommend on checking them out!

So blessed to have spent the weekend with the most amazing girlfriends in my favorite city! I’m already missing NY already….Thank God i’ll be hopping back on a plane in 2weeks back to NYC!

A Nylon Night

 

First- Let me apologize in advance in the not so perfect picture quality.The other night the bestie, Michelle Phan, & I attended the Nylon x Coach dinner to celebrate the Lily Collins cover. Coach gifted us with possibly the cutest crossbody bag ever  (will be posting up pix soon). Wanted to share with you guys the outfits that Michelle & I Wore! Michelle wore this beautiful grecian ASOS gown but we toughened it up by adding a leather jacket & a pair of black booties (seriously can never go wrong with pairing flowy romantic pieces with a structured leather piece.) I’m wearing possibly the cutest chiffon/lace dress by Dolce & Gabbana but paired it with this bad ass boxy tiger print jacket. Similar to  a leather jacket you can never go wrong with animal print accents whether it be a jacket like i’m wearing or this beautiful Mcqueen clutch of Michelles!

HAPPY FRIDAY!! Hope you have an impossibly amazing weekend!

Lay & Mix it up!

I’ve always loved the idea of layering but living in southern California  i’m always limited to so many layers I can wear! (2 days ago it was in the 80′s in LA….seriously hottest winter ever!!!) I created this tutorial for all of you who love that layered look but cant {physically} afford to unless ur willing to risk a heatstroke! haha. Also I just got back from my travels in asia where it was freeeeeeeeeeeezzzzzing and I {finally} got the chance to play with all those layers (and btw lived in my UNIQLO heat tech leggings there). So no matter what side of the world you are at or what climate temperature you may be experiencing I hope you can find a little LAY & MIX inspo here!
