There is something kind of refreshing about wearing neutrals. Since I wear color so often, I tend to forget that wearing two colors, white and beige, can make just a big enough statement as a colorful ensemble. So while visiting Downtown LA this weekend, I put on my trusty white pants, a simple beige long sleeve blouse, and my go-to heels (thank you to chunky heels for being so comfortable). This is an outfit that can be worn throughout the seasons, but wearing neutrals in fall is so crisp and classic.
Since I work full-time during the week, I definitely appreciate the weekends a little bit more. It’s my time to totally relax and get a little fresh air. One of my favorite places to visit is Fashion Island in Newport Beach. Since I live fairly close to the OC, heading out there is only a short 30 min away.
I thought I would show you what I like to wear for those “I want to look put together and cute without any effort at all look” (yes, that’s a look you guys). So here it is, black jeans, which I got from Nordstrom Rack and oh my gosh they are insanely comfortable. A classic striped long sleeve which is something I think everyone needs to have in their closet! Flats, and I am in love with these from an online boutique I discovered while assisting a stylist on a photo shoot one day. They are handmade in Mexico, and since that is where my family is from I was gravitated towards this brand (I think I am going to do a review soon). Oh and if you follow me on instagram, you’ll see that I wear this bucket bag from Target like all the time. Since I do wear it so often, I wanted to do something that would spice it up, so i just tied a blue scarf to the handle viola! Instant cuteness!
What is your “I want to look put together and cute without any effort at all look”? I would love to know!
Oh and how cute is Rocky and his new friend? There is a serious stare-down going on here! Haha

Whether you are into Fashion or not, I am sure it was hard to ignore the NYFW buzz two weeks ago! Now that MFW is underway, I thought I would share what I would have worn to NYFW! Here’s the thing, NY is known to be uncomfortably hot, yet we want to dress up in our fall favorites- so finding the balance between the two is key.
Now, not all of us can afford to wear designer duds, but that’s okay! With the help of collaborations like Altuzarra for Target, we can achieve that designer look without breaking the bank! I thought this dress fit the bill perfectly for the occasion with its crisp and clean construction, and although it is light in color and fabric, it serves as a nice transition piece from summer to fall.
I kept the shoes neutral and added a pop of pattern with my clutch. And of course, no NYWF street style pic is complete without a killer pair of shades!
If you bought anything for the Altuzarra collection, I would love to see how you styled it! #adryonthedaily in your picture or post a link to your blog down in the comments.

I have taken a MAJOR hiatus from the blog over the past month! I got a new, full-time job and went to NYC for ten days, so I’ve been pretty busy! I ALSO have a lot of exciting changes coming to the site, so stay tuned over the next few months. I will try and post as often as I can!
As for this post, I documented what I wore everyday this week. Like I have mentioned a few times before, this blog is to show you how I rotate the same pieces in my wardrobe to create new outfits. I feel like with this series, you will really get to see how I do that!
ps. Since I am revamping the site, please leave me any feedback!

Guys, my whole life has been turned totally upside down. I am MADLY ADDICTED to Gossip Girl right now. I know I am a few years too late, but I have never been one to watch too much TV. I always knew that GG was a show known for its fashion but school and my social life always kept me busy. But now, thanks to Netflix, I spend all my free time watching it and I must say that I am so inspired by Blair Waldorf’s style. She is the epitome of class, sophistication and elegance (minus her scheming). Call this a phase, but I plan on channeling my inner Blair a little more through my wardrobe. By layering this tweed blazer over a delicate white dress paired with a snake embossed heel I feel like I am getting there!
PS. Chuck Bass is my life right now… sigh…
