Sometimes keeping it simple is the way to go. Black skinny jeans, statement necklace, knit top and booties. I scored this top from Forever 21 last week and cannot tell you how obsessed I am with it. Definitely going to be on major rotation throughout the holiday season. Shop it below!

Outfit Post: Color Of Fall

When I think of fall, I think of rich colors like mustard, cranberry, deep maroons and dark forest greens. I love pairing these colors with cremes, nudes and camel colors. These are so timeless and definitely colors you should have in your fall wardrobe.

Now if you are anything like me, you probably still have some fall clothing {boots, jeans, bags etc.} from a few falls ago. I absolutely love mixing and matching with older pieces that I have and bringing new things into the mix. I mean when you have found your favorite booties {that may be 2 years old but still look new} don't part with them! Find new ways to style things and chances are if you are still obsessed with them, they are probably classic pieces that won't necessarily go out of style any time soon.

I scored this adorable skirt from Forever 21 last week {so dangerous having one around the corner from my work. Lets just say I sometimes skip eating lunch for....well you know} I wanted to pair it with a super bulky sweater for that juxtaposition look. I definitely am already planning other ways to style this skirt and I'm sure you will be seeing a lot of it on my IG and here on the blog.

Last week when I wore this look I had the honor of attending ASU's Business Of Fashion event where I got to be on a panel and had a little q + a session with their club members. I was up with Savannah of The Blog Issue as well as Caitlin from Dash of Darling. It was so fun meeting everyone and getting to share a little about why blogging is a huge part of my life!

Outfit Post: Fall + Fringe

As I am typing this it officially feels like fall outside. We have our sliding door open and almost all of our windows...and it is actually chilly! I wore this outfit the other day and I love that I was able to layer a light sweatshirt with this fun shaggy vest from last year. This sweatshirt is another one from People's Project LA. I just love their pieces! I hope all of you are having a great week. :)

1 Year Wedding Anniversary//

It feels like just yesterday I was planning the wedding and then saying "I do". I seriously cannot believe that it has been one whole year {on Saturday} that we have been married.

Jeff is honestly the sweetest, most romantic guy. He woke me up with roses {they were also from Stogie, he wanted to make sure I knew that} then we went and got breakfast before I went to work. We went to this bagel shop around the corner from our house that I actually went to on the day of our wedding last year. I remember waking up and literally being so nervous {not to marry Jeff, just knowing that everything we had worked so hard to plan was about to happen}. My dad and brother took me to get breakfast the morning of the wedding and Jeff ended up driving up to drop off an iced coffee a love note and pick up my ring to get cleaned. {Of course my brother went out to get everything, we didn't see each other until the first look! He thought of everything!} So that little bagel shop is super special and tasty!

After work we exchanged gifts and headed to dinner at the Capital Grille. It was DELISH! At the end of the night we had thawed out the top layer of our wedding cake to eat, which by the way tasted just like it did on the day of our wedding. So many people say that theirs was so gross but our cake lady must of known what she was doing when she wrapped ours. The technique worked!

Then {the sweetest part of the day, in my opinion} we read our vows to each other for the first time. When we were preparing our ceremony with our pastor we decided to do the traditional vows aloud and write our personal vows down and put them in a wine box. The wine box sat on the alter with a bottle of wine during the ceremony and was to be opened on our one year anniversary. To be completely honest I wasn't sure Jeff's vows were going to say but they surpassed anything I could have ever imagined. They were literally the sweetest words I have ever heard and made me feel even more blessed to have him as a husband. If any of you are getting married soon, I highly recommend this tradition. It was so special.

Well that is all I have for this sappy post. I hope you all enjoyed hearing a little about it. Cheers to one year!

Outfit Post: The Usual

This is a typical outfit you would see me in, well basically any day of the week. Wearing some type of lululemon, a graphic tee and a flannel {haha!}. It's seriously the best being able to wear this to work. I feel so comfortable and I love mixing and matching lulu into my everyday wardrobe. I sweat in it and I wear it normally too! This adorable tee is from People's Project LA. Shop their pieces {here}!

Last week I had the honor of attending and speaking at the Circles of Change {for more info go here}  Love Your Body event. I met so many amazing people including the very talented and oh so sweet owner of The Zen Bird. One thing that she said the other night that totally stuck with me is when you put one of the headbands on or catch yourself in the mirror wearing it, let it remind you to choose good thoughts. I loved what her product signifies to her and it makes it that much more meaningful to wear one. I just love her! Shop all of her headbands and find TONS of inspiration on her site {here}.

Over the weekend Jeff and I celebrated our 1st wedding anniversary! It was seriously amazing. I am going to share all about it tomorrow in the blog! I hope everyone had a great Monday :)
