Orange Melange


Out of all the scarfs I own, by far this one is my favorite. Today's outfit was created around this scarf. The temperature is getting cooler and the goal was to go with a cozy, comfy, and warm look. This outfit was perfect for today's weather. I also love the melange of colors and how it brightens the look. Plus, it's Halloween, so these colors are just spooktacular!

Fall for Tights


I am so glad it's a new week. My weekend consisted of writing papers and studying for my final exam. I am so glad that's over with! 

One thing I love about the fall is wearing tights, the sweaters, the leg-warmers, and boots. These mustard color tights are a must for the fall. The nude dress with this pop-of-color makes the look so much more fun!

Repeat


 I have no shame in wearing pieces more than once.  I don't know about you but I need to control my shopping addiction before I go broke. With that being said, I will have to work with what I have. I love this skirt from Forever 21 and how I can come up with different styles for appropriate settings. I think this look is just right for tonight.

Horses and Bayonets

If you saw yesterday's presidential debate, you know exactly what I'm talking about. I was astonished on how quickly a statement regarding "horses and bayonets" could be a trending topic. This morning I was going over on what I was going to wear, and I came across this top with horses. I couldn't help but laugh sarcastically. You know that kind of laugh when you are like, "ja ja" but not really laugh? Yeah, I totally did that. Don't judge me. Lol.

I saw the horses and immediately thought about yesterday's debate, lol. So, in honor of the horses, here it is!

Autumn Leaves Over Me

Hello there! I can't believe I am saying this but I started my Monday with positive vibes. I know many of us despise the first day of the week, but If I start the week with happy thoughts it may last me the whole week? I doubt it but it doesn't hurt to try. Now, enough about Monday's and let's talk about my outfit.


I've been on instagram a lot lately and I've been inspired by the beautiful pictures of the autumn leaves. The changing of leaves from green to yellow, red, brown, and orange reminds us of all the good things the Lord has blessed us with. The color of this scarf reminds me of the autumn leaves. The mustard color, burgundy, and brown has autumn written all over it. The weather is still on the cool side, so a simple scarf makes the look just right.

One of those YOLO moments


Have you ever just randomly decided, "You know what, I am tired of the same routine, and I deserve a mini vacation." Well, that's what the hubby and I did the last two days. My husband is the type of person to analyze a plan before executing a decision (he still has the military mentality...shhh don't tell him I told you ;)  but if we went through that whole process, we would've never done anything. So, I told him, "YOLO babe!" lol he looked at me like I had issues but agreed with the plan. These past few weeks have been stressful for me and we needed some alone time, so this mini trip was a must. 


I've never been to Universal Studios and what a perfect time to go and enjoy the Halloween horror nights. By the way, if you are a Walking Dead fan, you must go through the Walking Dead Terror Tram and the Walking Dead - Dead Inside. These walkers look so real! Scary, but so much fun! I had a blast.


My look for the day was all about comfort. A lot of walking! 
Top: H&M, Pants: Cotton On, Shoes: Toms, Purse: Payless


The Walking Dead for sure was the scariest! 


Look who I found. 


Universal Studios, City Walk 


uff, almost popped in my pants! LOL I kid, I kid ;)


One of the places I was told to visit was the Farmers Market at the Grove. I heard about it through some coworkers of mine and decided to check it out. I absolutely loved it! One thing you don't know about me is that I love history. I was intrigued on how the farmers market came about and how it transitioned through the years. I am not going to bore you to death but if you are interested you could read a little more about it on here

My favorite part was visiting the small shops and the smell of fresh barbecue ribs roasting. Yum! A variety of goodies! such as, fruits, candy, foods, and pastries. It was like food heaven for me. I ate so much and did not feel one bit guilty.

For those who love seafood, plenty of seafood options to choose from. 


I had a pizza and a glass of wine. It was delicious! 





Hope you are having a great weekend so far!

ShopRuche

A Ruchette

 
 
Dress: Shopruche, Shoes: Shopruche, Vest: Shopruche, Purse: Sammydress, Earrings: Piperlime
 
 
You may ask yourself, what is a Ruchette? Well, a Ruchette is a person who shops at Ruche and who loves the modern/vintage style. That would be me! everytime I visit their site, I want to buy everything on there. I could only imagine if my closet was filled with all their pieces. I think I would be set for a year and not have to worry about what outfits to put together. Their clothes are of good quality and will last you awhile. No joke.
 
This faux fur vest is currently on my wishlist. I love it because It's so versatile, and I can pair it up with couple of looks. This dress caught my attention as well and decided to put all these pieces together. Cute fall look! Do you agree?
 
Hope you have a good one!

A Statement Piece


I've been wanting to wear these corduroy burgundy pants for the longest now but because the cold weather in California wants to keep playing "peekaboo" I have to work with what I have. Today was the perfect day to wear them; not too hot and not too cold, just right! I purchased this statement necklace around the same time I bought these pants and I just love how both go well together. I look at my outfit, and I see fall written all over it.

Hart of Dixie: Zoe Hart's Style


I still remember the first day Hart of Dixie aired on TV. I fell in love with the show from the get-go. A city girl living in the south who is misunderstood because of her stylish wardrobe. If you haven't watched it, you must! It's a really good show. Zoe Hart, which is played by Rachel Bilson has great sense of style. Her feminine, modern/chic, and edgy looks is what inspire girls like myself to come up with great outfit ideas. I am not going to lie, that's one of the reasons why I watch the show.  I can only imagine how her closet looks. Below are some of my favorite looks from her.


I am a fan of stripes and print blouses, so of course this look is one of my favorites.  The simple lace detail on the bottom trim of the shorts makes the look chic and sexy. I put together a similar look. 

Top: Shopbop, Shorts: Miss Selfridge, Purse: River Island, Shoes: Sole Struck


This dress is so cute! Love these colors for fall and the small yellow purse gives it a great touch. I would wear this with some tights and booties. 


The leopard top, leather pants, and burgundy blazer makes the whole look chic. Another similar look below.
