Trend Alert: The Oversized Turtleneck Sweater

Style | February 3, 2015

The turtleneck sweater is taking over the streets of fashion…and my closet. I’ve been on the look out for quite some time now and am noticing more retailers introducing these oversized styles. Think: chunky-knitted sweater. Instantly the over-sized look adds a touch of laid-back cool to your outfit. Is it crazy that people here in Los Angeles (including myself below) are also rocking the trend? I’m seeing lighter fabric styles appropriate for the cali-weather but still – is that weird? ha In a couple of weeks when I head to NYC for fashion week, I’m hoping to rock a chunkier …

Hello sparkleeees! When I said you can style this denim button-up with anything – clearly I meant it.

Little Green Dress: Celebrity Chef Benefit Recap

Style | June 27, 2014

Happy Friday! Today I’m recapping Orange County’s Meals on Wheels Celebrity Chef benefit that I had the pleasure of recently attending and being a part of! I definitely don’t consider myself a “celebrity” so when they asked me to do this I was like, “Are you sure you’re asking the right person?” ha

My lucky partner in crime who knows how to cook up a mean dish is one of Orange County’s best, Chef Pascal Olhats. It was fun getting to compete with other celebs who you might recognize! 😉 Hope you enjoy the pics + my full head to …

Denim Skirt: GUESS (new) // Shirt: Nordstrom // Bag: Zara (shop similar here + here) // Sunglasses: Marc Jacobs // Watch: Michael Kors // Shoes: Shop Exhale (plain version)
