Hey guys! As many of you know this past weekend was National Best Friend’s Day! In celebration, I partnered up with Evleo yesterday and took over their IG account sharing three of my favorite LA hotspots with my bestie and the perfect legging-outfits to match. I am a girl who loves my leggings that are a closet staple each and every season. Today I’m showing you how leggings can be worn for luxury purposes. Forget the gym and grocery store – we’re taking them out on the town! Hope you guys enjoy these pics + the BTS video I created for you! Make sure you stick around at the end of the post for details about an exciting (and MAJOR!) giveaway opportunity for you and YOUR BFF!
Hotspot One: Bottega Louie (Cafe)
I love Bottega Louie so much! The food is yummy, but I definitely brought Adrianna here to show her their assortment of delicious macaroons. We basically wanted to drown ourselves in them. #macaroonheaven
Why this look: Bottega Louie is a pretty nice cafe/restaurant so we decided to dress the part in our tres chic outfits and high-heels. I love the red and grey color combos together!
Hotspot Two: The Grove (Shopping)
What’s a fun day with the BFF unless there’s some shopping, right?! Of course this would be my number two fave spot. I spend a lot of time here at The Grove, which is an outdoors mall in Los Angeles. It’s a great place to come shop all the major brands and enjoy the beautiful Cali- weather in between store-hopping. Definitely add this to your list!
Why this Look: Comfort is key when you’re shopping! The last thing you want is to feel like your burned out and over the whole shopping experience. Adrianna and I are both rockin’ casual outfits and comfy shoes (a must!). We’re still keeping it fresh and exicting though with our fun-patterned leggings.
Hotspot Three: Perch (Dinner/Nightlife)
Cheers to my third and final hotspot here at Perch in Downtown LA! I recently discovered this spot – I know I’m so late, but it’s better late than never. If you’re in LA and want a delicious dinner, cocktails WITH A VIEW this is the place to add to your list. Their rooftop (and food!) is amazing – you won’t regret it.
Why this Look: You can never go wrong with a classy but sexy style for the night. I love how we’re both rockin’ a bold red lip to match our super fierce leggings. Adrianna’s snake print style totally matches her wild personality. She’s always ready for a good time!

I’m ready to kick off the weekend with my fancy but tough style. I’ve been meaning to attempt the black midi-skirt trend for a while now but never found the right top or style to wear it. Who would have thought a basic white crop top would do the trick?! I’ve learned when I’m out shopping to keep a look out for pieces like this that I can re-style over and over again. Black and white are super tight (I mean this in a BFF kind of way) making this look perfect for a cool summer night.
Have a great weekend!

Thank God (it’s almost) Friday! By the looks of it (on the outside) I’m pretty relaxed today, but on a scale of one to cray-cray my week has definitely been CRAY. I’ll update you. Between having guests in town and shooting videos and outfits daily while prepping for upcoming fun on the blog with a million phone calls and emails I have to answer in between – it’s safe to say I need a vacation. I’m excited to get away this weekend in Vegas with my girls! I won’t be getting sin city crazy because all I want to do is relax! I’m so ready to turn off my brain and just chill out and unwind! #WooWoo
Any who! Today I paired a casual top with my go-to denim skirt and gladiator sandals for a chill going out look. These pieces are all re-workable which I love. I’m also rockin’ my new jewelry that’s totally got the boho/gypsy vibe. Side note: I am kind of obsazzed with silver jewelry right now. I’m always on the hunt for more because I have so much gold that sometimes you just gotta change things up with silver. Ya know?!
See ya in Vegas this weekend! (through my insta that is!) lelelelele

Today I am sharing my thoughts on three amazing shades of Extraordinaire by Colour Riche from L’Oreal Paris. It’s like a lip stain and lip gloss all in one. The secret? It’s formulated with intense pigments and precious oils for exquisite color that’s so smooth and never sticky. Seriously, who likes sticky lips? No one. The shades I tried are all so pretty and glossy. These really create the perfect summertime pout!
1. Coral Encore – I love a peachy lip!
2. Ruby Opera- A classic red lip is a must in my book.
3. Blushing Harmony- You can’t go wrong with a nude lip.
I’m such a lipstick junkie. Which shade looks the best?!

Skirt: Nordstrom (similar one here) // Crop top: H&M (old, shop similar here, here) // Moto Jacket: Bebe // Sunglasses: Quay // Bag: Rovi Moss (shop similar here) // Converse: Shop Exhale (stud-less option) // Socks: We Love Colors (shop similar here)
It’s a raindow stripes and moto jacket kind of day. This is just one of many different ways you can style this a-mazing white leather moto jacket from Bebe. It’s that perfect shade of white that I can see myself re-styling all summer long. I’m thinking with a maxi dress next?! I’m super picky with my white jackets because sometimes white can easily look cheap. You’ll want to invest in a good one like this that doesn’t cost a fortune but is made with great quality. I decided to contrast edgy with girlie (one of my fave combos!) by combining a colorful printed skirt with casual sneakers and a jacket. I love that I found light-weight ankle socks that match the skirt perfectly. #winning It’s a small but major detail that highlights the casual vibe of this entire look.
