7 Days, 7 Ways: The Boyfriend Sweater, Part 6

I recently scored a new fisheye lens for my iPhone and I have fallen in love. I take it everywhere I go and I am obsessed with landscapes using the fisheye lens. I was experimenting with my lens at the beach and it just so happened to be a beautiful day so I decided to shoot a couple of photos for the blog. This is a really casual look because it only involves two colors. You can translate it with different items of clothing, the message is the monochromatic look. (The simple white tee is an absolute staple in everybody's closet and as you can see, it's very versatile.)  At the bottom I've included one of my favorite photos that I took on the beach! xx

7 Days, 7 Ways: The Boyfriend Sweater, Part 5

Believe it or not, I used to play basketball and one of my favorite things about playing was the shoes. Everywhere you looked on the court, there were all different colored basketball shoes with personalized names, splattered paint, even little stuffed animals on them. While I stopped my career a couple of years ago, I kept my basketball shoes and they are still a staple in my closet. When I was shopping for shoes years ago, I opted for the black and white pair because I knew that they would go with everything, but sometimes I wish I had gone with a flashier pair of purple and green kicks or something that would really stand out! That said, I absolutely love my shoes and they can be worn for athletic purposes or in this case, for fashion purposes. Worn here with a basic sweater, black jeans, a simple black bag, and my boyfriend cardigan, they make this look just a bit more sporty! xx

Valentine's Day Love List


Whenever Valentine's Day approaches, we all think of pink and red roses along with heart shaped chocolate. Of course, that's the cliche gift to give and while that's totally cute and traditional too, it's also fun to mix it up while still keeping the tradition of rosy pinks, and bright reds. I have selected my personal favorites for this Valentine's Day and I think that they are all absolutely adorable picks. xx

7 Days, 7 Ways: The Boyfriend Sweater, Part 4

☆ Dress - AllSaints ☆ Boyfriend Sweater - Forever 21 ☆ Shoes - Jeffrey Campbell ☆ 

Whenever I think of the boyfriend look, I think of three words: casual, effortless, chic. When I was picking through my closet the other day, I stumbled across my absolute favorite dress (the color is so rich and the draping is stunning..) and I put it on for my birthday dinner. For us Californians, it was a bit chilly,  so I looked through my closet for about the third time in order to pick out just the right garment to wear on top. I really did not think of wearing my boyfriend sweater, but because it has been on my radar recently, I thought why not give it a go. I threw it on and low and behold it actually looked really good with my dress, and I realized that the boyfriend look does not only have to be worn with casual clothes, but can also put an unexpected twist on dressier clothes. xx
