All Mixed Up

IMG_0757 IMG_0758 IMG_0759 IMG_0760 IMG_0763 IMG_0765 IMG_0768

Top: Anthro | Necklace: LOFT | Cords: Citizens | Cardi: Juicy Couture
Boots: Vince Camuto

I’ve got stripes in all different directions in this outfit! And when I put it together, I was trying to push my color boundaries and pair something other than neutral with my cords, but of course, I end up being totally matchy matchy no matter what I do :)  I have been so bad at posting lately, but now that I’m back from vacation, over the cold and it’s daylight savings, I am out of excuses!

Costa Rica Part III

IMG_0451IMG_0438

Not a bad backdrop, eh? The beaches in Costa Rica are incredible.
I wore this on our way out to an early dinner in Tamarindo, where we had the pleasure of watching the sunset with our toes in the sand and a glass of sangria in hand.
I can’t wait to go back. Until then…

Costa Rica Part II

IMG_0431 IMG_0435 IMG_0429

This tank was another find by a Costa Rican designer… it’s super light weight, oversized and breezy which is the perfect thing to throw in such hot temperatures. Costa Rica is super casual, and most people are in flip flops, sundresses or shorts and tank tops.

Costa Rica Part I

IMG_0408 IMG_0413 IMG_0414 IMG_0418 IMG_0416

Ahhh… Costa Rica. What a wonderful place with super nice people, monkeys in the trees, perfect weather and beautiful sites. I have a tradition that wherever I travel, I find something unique to the area. It bring me joy to wear it and think of that trip. This tank dress was one of the few things I found that was designed and made locally. Unfortunately, the label was not sewn into the garment, it was attached with a safety-pin, and so I (oops) tossed it and have no idea who designed it. This dress was perfect for the hot weather, it is effortless and breezy and comfortable.
If only I didn’t have to wait a few months to wear it again…

Think Mink

IMG_0054IMG_0058

Jacket: Kenneth Cole | Sweater: H&M | Jeans: Citizens | Boots: Ralph Lauren
Scarf: Gift (similar) | Bag: Cynthia Vincent

Is that knit scarf made to look like a mink stole? Why yes, yes it is. I would like you to meet the best gift ever, from my dear friend Cynthia Pastor Designs. She is the queen of one of a kind finds and this was no exception. We spent the day shopping the unique thrift shops in Long Beach and I found some great stuff I can’t wait to show you.

Hope everyone had a lovely weekend.
