Winning in Winter White

winter white target outfitToday's post is all about using winter white products as a base and creating a few different looks using other pieces from my existing closet. Partnering up with Target, today I've chosen to showcase these adorable white skinny jeans & white sweater and accessorize in different ways. For the first look, I wanted to go for a laid back casual daytime look and sticking to the all white theme and adding a bit of color with my sunglasses.

The second look is one that I would wear out and about meeting up with girlfriends for a lunch date or something of the sort. In San Diego, the weather is always amazing so I'm rocking my sandals year round. winter white target outfit gold details
Look no. 3 is all about glomming it up a bit with my favorite gold accents like these beautiful gold pumps & clutch. It's amazing what a few pieces can do to an outfit, right?! So many times we leave most of our closet unexplored and forget that there are tons of ways to wear every piece of clothing we have! Ladies it's time to update your existing looks by incorporating easy updates like I've done above!

BTW- I have been partnering up with Cosmic Cart which lets you buy items from multiple retailers without having to leave my site. When you see the Cosmic Cart icon in the photos, click it to shop the look!

Happy Monday everyone! A good camel coat is so essential to have in your closet -- this has become one of my absolute favs. It's a sweater jacket but looks just like a long coat! I love it & hope you do too! I've been struggling with a pretty bad migraine today so I apologize this is short, must go try to sleep it off! Love you all =)

Ballerina Bun



ballerina-bun

A ballerina bun hairstyle might look complicated, but it's actually pretty simple to achieve. As long as your hair is long enough to pull into a ponytail, making a bun is very easy. Hope you enjoy!

STEP 1: Apply Suave Suave Professionals Natural Infusion Awapuhi Strengthening Light Leave-In Cream. This will help to smooth the look and help for easier styling and pull hair into a high ponytail.

STEP 2:  Twist remaining hair loosely and wrap around the base of the ponytail. Secure with bobby pins.

Gift Ideas for the Dog Lover


It's no secret I'm mildly obsessed with my dog and when it comes to him, I spoil him rotten. I know I'm not the only animal lover who does these things and trust me, anyone who knows me knows I love him more than anything SO a little gift for the fur baby goes a long way ;) Here are few of my favorite picks thanks to my curated Yahoo Style gift guide for dog lovers. Check out the full gift guide here, and be sure to check out the Yahoo Style site for other great gift ideas!


I groom my pup a lot and it's so essential to have a good pair of grooming tools! Love these!


If you're like me then you frequently wonder what the heck the world looks like to your dog and what he does when you're not around. This is definitely what I need.. Don't judge me ;)

I love plaid for myself, so why not get it for my little baby?! Love this and that the proceeds go to charitable animal organizations!
