Red, Red and Red

Red Dress-- Free People
Booties-- &Other Stories
Lip Color-- Holliegirl 

It's almost Valentine's Day!!! Yay!! One of my favorite holidays of the year. I love having my date night with my hubby, but I love spending Valentine's with my boys too. I get them some fun goodies, like candy and treats!! Stay tuned for more Valentine's Day posts coming up on the blog.

So what is the best part of Valentine's Day? The color red of course. I love wearing red for this special day. And how cute is this red dress from Free People? I am absolutely in love with it. Free People makes the cutest dresses, and this is a perfect winter weather choice. I paired it with my everyday booties from &Other Stories. These are literally so comfortable, and I can wear them all day long.  And of course a red dress needs a bold red lip. I've shared with you before one of my favorite lip stains from my girlfriend Hollie at Holliegirl Cosmetics. This is hands down one of the best lip stains ever. You have to check it out here.

So bring out all your favorite red pieces from your closet for Valentine's Day. I promise that when you wear red, you will feel fierce and flirty. Woo hoo!! Thanks to Gabi Wells for photos. You can shop this look by clicking on the links above and Happy Reading!!!!

5 Things You Don't Know About Me

Happy Monday Friends!!! Today I wanted to do a different kind of blog post. I thought it would be fun to tell you some things about me that you may not know:

1. I am 40+ years old--  I never really share about my age but I've decided to embrace this time of my life. I started this blog to help inspire women to step outside comfort zones at any age, try a new trend and feel good about themselves. I enjoy fashion and trends of all styles!!! I want to encourage women not to think they have to wear mumu's as they get older. Hahahahah!!!

2. I'm a wife and mother-- My hubby is actually my high school boyfriend and prom date!!! And my boys are Ben, 18 years old and going to college next year (Can't believe it) and Zachary 12 years old.

3. I'm originally from LA, the Valley (yes, I'm a Valley Girl who grew up down the street from the Sherman Oaks Galleria) and currently live in Newport Beach. I absolutely love living by the beach. It's so calming and peaceful.

4. I used to be a Speech Language pathologist and had a private practice where I ran social skills groups with children with Autism. I did my fellowship at UCLA Neuropsychiatric Hospital, and specialized in children with Autism.

5. I am an only child. Since I have no siblings my girlfriends are very important to me. They are like my hand picked family.

I would love to hear fun facts about you guys!!! Thanks to Tyler Chase for this cute photo and Happy Reading!!!!

My Obsession with Blazers

Black Blazer-- Nordstrom, similar here
Faux Leather Skirt-- Leith
Top-- Lush
Booties-- Stuart Weitzman
Sunglasses- Karen Walker

I think I may have a blazer problem. I am absolutely obsessed with blazers. I have so many different versions, in all different styles and colors.  I picked up this cute velvet blazer at Nordstrom and it was only $60!!! I love the texture, the length, and the details.

I paired this blazer with an adorable faux leather skirt (which every fashion girl needs) and my favorite Stuart Weitzman sock booties. These booties literally go with everything. This is the perfect look for a night out with the girlies or a date night with your hubby.

I highly recommend you invest in a couple of different blazers with different styles and colors. You can pair them with everything-- skirts, dresses and jeans. How many blazers do you have in your closet? Thanks to Gabi Wells for photos. You can shop this look by clicking on the links above. Happy Reading!!!!

Because I'm Happy

Graphic Tee-- similar here, here
Faux Leather Jacket-- Blank NYC
Skirt-- Forever 21
Heels-- Jimmy Choo-- similar here
Sunglasses- Chloe

"Because I'm happy"....  Don't you just love that Pharell song? I love a good graphic tee, and this one with just the word happy was sooooo me. I knew when I saw it, I just had to have it.

Ever since I can remember, the word happy has been my word. My parents raised me to look at the positive in all situations and to always try to be happy. And that is how I choose to live my life, so this t-shirt is the perfect expression of my motto.

I paired this tee with a faux leather jacket, this cute full pleated skirt and my comfy heels. I think this is the cutest look and super easy to put together. Stay tuned for more looks with my happy tee. I just love it and hope it inspires you to always look on the positive side. Thanks to Gabi Wells for photos.

A Winter Duster

Duster-- Nordstrom-- similar here, here
Jeans-- Frame
Boooties--& Other Stories
Sunglasses-- Quay
Clutch-- Her Collection

Hi friends!! How is your week going? I feel like the holidays were so crazy busy, and I kept saying to myself, "January will be so much more of a relaxed schedule". But this isn't the case. January seems to be time for all of my kids' doctor and dentist appointments, and Zachary's upcoming 6th grade play-- Madagascar. So that means try outs and practices. And the list goes on and on....

And the perfect way to start January is by sharing one of my favorite pieces to wear for all of those busy days of running around town-- a great duster. A duster is such a good layering piece. I love that you can wear it over jeans and a cute tee, like I did in this post, or layer it over a fun short dress or skirt.

I love all of these colors in this duster above. It is so easy to add to an everyday look, like a white tee, some skinnies and booties. It really is that simple. I highly recommend you pick up a cute duster that you can add to all of your upcoming winter and spring looks. Thanks to Gabo Wells for photos. Ups can shop this look by clicking on the links above.
