Color Crush: The Color Yellow

Hey guys! I’m back from NYC! I’ll be sharing an outfit post from my short trip very soon as soon as I get the photos edited and ready to go! In the meantime, I decided to dedicate today’s blog post to the color yellow. Why not?! I feel like yellow is a color that seldom gets attention and people either love it or hate it. I personally  love it. Call it yellow fever if you’d like!

I went through some of my old photos inspired by my current color crush to show you guys how I’ve rocked yellow over the years. Caution: some of these photos are really old! ha!

Random fact about me: I have another beauty mark underneath my right nostril that I cover up with makeup so that the one on my left cheek stands out.

Collared sweater for fall: Check. There’s something about collars that makes me feel so sophisticated and chic. When I got this sweater from Kelly Osbourne’s new line called Stories by Kelly Osbourne, I was excited to see that the collar is detachable and included a black one too. It’s pretty genius! It’s also faux leather so it won’t wrinkle, thank God. 

Many of you guys asked me when I sneak peek’ed this pic on my IG where I found this pretty light pink wall. I was in Burbank near the Warner Brothers studio and literally drove past it and knew it would be perfect to shoot in front of. This seldom happens (bloggers you know how hard it can be to find locations) so I got lucky!

Speaking of Lucky….. this made my day! Thank you, Kelly!

Have to Have it: Fall Staples with Lucky Brand

It’s kind of sorta starting to feel like fall here in Los Angeles. The weather has been a little chilly in the evenings so it’s given me the perfect excuse to bring out my fall staples. It feels like forever ago trying to remember the last time I wore a jacket.  I almost had to Youtube ‘How-to put on a Jacket since LA weather never changes Tutorial.” I’m totally kidding but I was close.

Today I’m sharing some closet staples for fall with Lucky Brand. These pieces can be worn a million times (which I love) and even though they’re subtle pieces you’ll still stand out for fall.

#1. Military Jacket

Consider this jacket my go-to for day or night. I love all the front pocket details as well as the scrunched up stitching at the waistline to help create a feminine shape. The color is also the perfect fall/winter shade but great to wear for spring too! 

 

#2. Bold Booties

These metallic booties below are quite the eye-catcher. When I saw them I instantly knew they would match a lot of my outfits and accessorize them up at the same time. Most importantly, they’re reaaaally comfortable. #score

 

#3. Cozy Graphic Tee

Graphic tees like this one are a go-to for me all year round, but especially during the fall season. It’s the perfect time of year to layer underneath blazers/jackets/vests.

Since Lucky is running a fun campaign all about how you #StandOut, I will share my personal testimony! When it comes to my style, I try to stand out by wearing the clothes and not letting them wear me. I love when my outfits are a reflection of my personality and current mood. I look good whenI feel good. What’s your #LuckyStandOut story? Share on social and make sure to hashtag!

I’m enroute to NYC! See you in the Big Apple!

Curls for a Cure: Pink Extension Hairstyle (VIDEO)

 I don’t know if it’s because this month marked my 25th birthday or the fact that Halloween is coming up and I still haven’t found a costume, but I’ve been in the mood lately to change things up. I’ve always wanted to dye my hair a fun candy color but I’ve never found the guts to do it. In support of October being Breast Cancer Awareness month I knew now was the perfect time to go pink (via hair extensions). I teamed up with Ouidad in their Curls for a Cure program to make a bold fashion statement with their pink curl extension but more importantly, to show a visible sign of support for Breast Cancer. Cancer in general is such a nightmare that has affected so many families including my own. As a woman I think it’s especially important we stick together to help raise awareness for Breast Cancer and early detection.

I hope you enjoy the little video I created showing you a couple of fun ways I styled my pink extensions.

So cool that Ouidad will be donating 100% of the purchase price of the pink curl extensions to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation. Join the fight with Ouidad and NaturallyCurly by sharing your own story
