A "Perfect" Look

I dont know about you guys, but this week has been super busy.  I've been running around trying to get everything tackled on my to do list. The problem is I have too much on there and noone except myself is pressuring me to get any of it done. 

Apparently, I'm a perfectionist. Who knew? I am not one to be overly organized, or return calls or emails in a timely manner so it makes no sense. I'm so not the stereotypical type A at all, but I do place a lot of importance on certain things and I seem to fixate on them so much more than necessary.  

I happen to like that I'm type A about fashion though. Even though it's far from the most important thing in life, it makes me feel in control and accomplished when I put together a look I love. The above board is one of those:)

Tassle Necklaces and L.A. Fall Fashion

Just a quick post of a recent favorite necklace of mine. The necklace contains that kind of stone that just slightly takes on the color of the outfit you happen to be wearing. It also has some spiritually healing uses if your into that sort of thing.

It is made of moonstone which " is a stone of perceiving beyond the veil" (source). Which basically means it helps one to see past 
face value. I think we all could use a bit of help in that department sometimes:)

I'm all for a multi-tasking necklace:)

Cozy Fall Weekend and 30% off Friends and Family Sale

Fall weekends are the BEST! I love the chill in the air and the feeling of being cozy in my warm sweater and boots. We have a lot planned this fall and this weekend is no exception. 

I'm planning on making these pumpkin pancakes...

We are planning to spend one day at Disneyland with our little boy. I've heard its a beautiful time of year to go, the crowds are a bit lighter and just walking through the park seeing all the fall decor is fun.

And, I'm planning on spending one lazy morning taking advantage of the Kate Spade Friends and Family Sale. It's 30% off EVERYTHING including this Bow Sweater which is seriously  calling my name. Enter F14FFUS at checkout. 

Enjoy your weekend everyone!

Black White and a Drop of Pink

Pants (Rag & Bone)//Tank (Current Elliot)//Bag (Gucci)//Bracelet (Mimi Jay)// Necklace (Mimi Jay)

Wearing pink is not always something I'm comfortable with...but I'm finding that pink accessories or rose gold jewelry helps sweeten up an edgier outfit for day time wear. 

I'm also experimenting with more delicate jewelry...
I'm finding that layering delicate necklaces is a great way to accessorise or I wear one sweet necklace alone when wearing an outfit that requires little jewelry. Both the Necklace and the Bracelet are my designs.

Wish Listed: Fall transition Pieces/Fall Fashion Trends

Greetings fellow shoppers!  I've been super busy creating my newest jewelry line lately as well as keeping up with all my etsy creations, but I have not lost my need to just veg out in front of the computer and cyber shop. 

I put the little monkey (my sweet 2 year old boy) to bed, and I let my brain kind of go into a no think zone while I stare at images of beautiful things. Some people have tv shows, some people drink to excess. I am addicted to fashion porn. So I leave you with my current lusts above: Pieces that transition well into Falls crispy, finicky weather that is warm during the day and quite chilly at night. How great would that jacket be worn over the maroon jumpsuit?

Layering a Top over a Tank Dress : Fall Clothing Ideas

Top C Wonder//Necklace Mimi Jay//Dress Three Dots//Booties (Similar)//Bag Gucci

Today I took a boring old sleeveless dress and threw this shirt from C Wonder over it for a more fall feeling look. I'm so ready for fall pumpkins, and apples, and turkeys and all the wonderful smells of Fall. I can't wait for it to get cold. Although its nice and breezy out, its not quite crisp yet. 

My sweet baby boy is in school half days now, so I've been busy with my jewelry line, driving to the diamond district, and I'm not gonna lie, I've been busy doing random little things I used to take for granted, like going to the bookstore or enjoying a few moments of silence (I actually downloaded a meditation app called "Simply Being" that is pretty awesome). I've done it twice at 10 minute intervals and it seems to clear my head and give me some much needed energy.

California Mom Style

I recently found out that the seniors citizens in our area of L.A, call the young moms "Lululemons."  Personally I think its kind of cute. And also fitting. They describe the Lululemon as the mom who drives around town in her Range Rover, or similar car, busying themselves with pick ups and drop offs, while in their Lululemon type workout clothes all day, everyday.  While I give them credit for being witty and cute, a lot of moms seem to dress in all types of clothes. They just have days when they fit the Lululemon category.  

Regardless, it inspired me to put together a post on what a Lululemon wants because I'm certain Lululemons are widespread across the country:)

1. Cool WorkouPants 2. To sleep in (obviously) and I love this Sleep In Print 3. A cool chunky Watch 4. A Veggie Spiral Slicer (because Lululemons are healthy and would want to make spaghetti out of zucchini) 5. A trendy roomy tote 6. A Necklace with their children's initials on it 7. Comfy sneakers that are retro and hip 

What do you guys think? Is this the new "mom uniform" in your area or would you say its just the new "laid back uniform of the decade", (regardless of whether or not someone is a mom)?

Fall Fashion Trend Tips: 2014

Metallics: Dress//Shoes
Plaids: Top//Shoes
Leathers: Dress//Shoes
Folk Inspired: Jacket//Shoes

If you only buy a few things this fall, consider one of these four trends that were seen all over the runways. I love how some of these trends are things we already have in our closet: 

Folk inspired is really just some springy or bohemian pieces mixed with heavier fabrics and colors for the new season. 
Metallic was already big in the summer. I love the metallic trend and metallic clothes:)
Plaids, well you may have some plaid if you saved some pieces from 1994 (the era of the movie Clueless). 
And everyone should have at least one great leather or faux leather piece to mix in with whatever season we are in.

Florals and Spikes and Sleepless Nights

Necklace (Mimi Jay)//Top (Similar)//Pants//Shoes//Bag

Red has really been my go to color lately. These Shoes and this Necklace are constantly in rotation. I love when I wear the hell out of something and really feel like I got my moneys worth. I'm trying to buy less and focus on mixing things up more. I used to mix things up so much more before I had a child, and I used to have so much fun getting dressed. 

Now, I only have fun getting dressed when I actually have the time to do it and when I'm not exhausted, which is rare...between my dog, my 2 year old and my husband, I'm getting woken up a few times a night. I think they collaborated and decided to do this on rotation. Toddler takes the 2 am shift, husband takes the 4 am shift (he gets up and fiddles with his phone or messes with the air conditioning) and the dog licks my face around 6am or pushes his paws into my back. 

PS, I'm thinking of coming up with a fall fashion trend tips list...will keep you posted!
