 Top Knot Obsazzed

If there’s one look I’ve been rockin’ on repeat lately it’s got to be the half-down top knot hairstyle! I wish I could take all the credit for this hairstyle, but it’s actually been worn by many celebs including Whitney Port, Arianna Grande, Sienna Miller and more. It’s a go-to for me when I want to spice up my outfit with some extra added edge. It’s also been great on those bad hair days – I simply tie it up in a messy knot and instantly feel like my hair went from EEEEK to chic! ;)

I created this video because so many of you have been asking me recently how I mastered this hairstyle. It’s sooooo easy. Watch and see..

Happy Tuesday loves! I quickly want to share this outfit I posted on my Instagram today. I am so obsessed with this printed dress from Plenty by Tracy Reese at Nordstrom. I am even more obsessed with the fit – super comfy and relaxed. I dressed it up with some chunky heels and added a fringe bag and hat to compliment the bohemian look but you can of course pair yours with fall boots or sandals for a more casual/chill style.

I am working on getting a video out to you guys tomorrow (fingers crossed)! Hopefully my computer doesn’t act all cray-cray on me during the editing process.

Chat soon! xx

Cue The Nanny theme song. Today I am the lady in red in this chic little outfit I wore last week to the taping of The Talk (which airs today)! I’m so excited that I got to attend the show with Dove and peep a cameo during their stylish beauty segment with Mark Townsend. You can tune in to see the episode today at 1pm PST! Now, let me go back to confessing my love for the color red. It’s the hottest color trend you can rock this season from beauty to bags and obviously apparel. I love the fit of this bohemian style dress. It’s super loose and comfy. It was the perfect day-time outfit that still made me feel sexy and feminine at the same time.

I’ve got a busy day/week ahead! Hope you all have a great rest of your Monday and let me know what you think about this look!

P.S Don’t forget to watch The Talk today!

Hey cuties! Today I’m rounding up some of my favorite finds during the month of September. As we’re heading into a new month in less than a week, I’m excited to bring these goodies along for the ride. Check it out!

1. Name Bracelet: This custom-made name bracelet was sent to me by the sister design duo called Les Dieux. They are currently working on getting a site up so keep a look out if you want to create your own custom name bracelet!

2. Goldbarr: I just recently discovered this line and I am so obsazzzzzed with their jewelry! It’s perfect for any of my fellow boho-gypsy queens out there. Goldbarr

3. Temporary hair dye: I’m so nervous to try this out but I’ve been wanting to do a fun color that washes out in 2-3 washes! It’s on my bucket list. It’s cool that it won’t damage or permanently streak your hair. You only live once right? Garnier

4. Lip gloss junkie: There’s no such thing as having too many lip glosses especially if they come in pretty colors like these! I’m super stoked to try these True Lipz glosses. They’re super hydrating and come in like a bazillion shades.

6. Dove’s Dry Oil collection: No joke, this is the best serum I’ve ever used. And the cheapest! I swapped out my entire shampoo/conditioner/serum regimen for Dove’s Dry Oil collection and my hair has never looked (or smelled!) better. It’s selling out fast in stores so I recommend buying online. Shop Shampoo, Conditioner, Serum

7. NYX All Over Balm: I love coconut oil so when I saw that NYX created a product in the form of an all over balm… I had to have it. So excited to try it out! Shop

Runway to Realway: Mixing Prints with JCPenney

nicole miller spring summer 2015, new york fashion week, best style, runway show, mixing prints, fall trends 2014

Although the madness of New York Fashion Week has officially ended, the trends are still the talk of the internet town. It’s pretty cool that even though the shows are forecasting the trends for spring/summer, you can still take a lot of the runway inspiration and incorporate it into your style now. One of these hot trends I kept seeing on repeat: mixed prints. At the Nicole Miller show I couldn’t help but admire all of the gorgeous models walking down the runway in bold colors and unique prints. I obviously took some mental notes and me being the gal who loves to chase style on a budget, I decided to re-create this trend from the runway to the realway with JCPenney. Read on to learn more..

My #JCPStyle

I took inspiration from Nicole Miller’s SS15 Runway Show to create this feminine-chic fall look. First, who said you can’t wear white after labor day?  Second, who said you can’t mix polar opposite prints? Silly rules. If there’s one thing I remember the most about Nicole Miller’s SS15 show it’s definitely all the black and white stripes and patterned skirts that came down the runway. This embroidered skirt from Mango x JC Penney instantly caught my eye. It reminds me of something similar I saw – except this one is 10 times cheaper (duh). You can pair it with a chic white top like I did for a sophisticated look or rock it with a graphic tee for a more casual approach. I searched everywhere on JCP’s site for this skirt, but I think it’s only available in select stores right now. Same with the top! :/ I literally just got it the other day though so check your local store and see! :) I threw on my black and white striped clutch and fun heels to help curate the ultimate mix-match!

It’s such a great feeling to know that you don’t have to spend a million bucks to chase a-list trends. I love how JCPenney lays everything out in their stores so that you can go in and find exactly what you need. It’s seriously the best feeling walking out of a store knowing you got what you wanted and didn’t have to break the bank. Woo!

 Have a great day!
