Beach Daze

Leopard Cardigan: Forever 21 - Romper: Forever 21 similar Here - Shoes: Forever 21 - Hat: Nordstrom - Swimsuit: Victoria's Secret

With Kannon's new obsession with the beach, I have a feeling we will be spending the majority of our free time in the sand. I forgot how much I loved the beach until the past couple of weeks. We are beyond lucky to live in Southern California where we can go to the beach in January. Sorry for all of you who are experiencing a blizzard at the moment, I'm sending warm vibes your way :) On another note, this leopard cardigan was one of the pieces I got on my Forever 21 haul & it has quickly become a go-to in my closet. I wore it to the beach & then dressed it up a bit another day for a girls lunch (stay tuned for that look coming to the blog soon!). Thank goodness that leopard is neutral right? Also, these espadrilles are definitely going to be my favorite Spring/Summer shoes. I own them in black & stripes & they are under $16!!!! If I were you, I would hurry & snag a pair before they are gone because these babies are going to go fast!

Hilarious story real fast... We picked up some burritos before we got to the beach & Kannon & I were down by the water while Adam was eating real fast when we turn around & see Adam running towards us.. With 20 birds attacking him!!! He literally was sprinting around (slipping in the sand :)) trying to get rid of the birds but they were adamant about getting his burrito, so he finally had to just throw his burrito in the sand to get rid of them! It was honestly one of the funniest things I have ever seen & Kannon still laughs about it. He goes up to Adam & says, "Daddy, caw caw" (while flapping his wings) & just cracks up! I wish so badly that we captured the birds attacking him on camera. It will be a story that gets talked about for years.

Piperlime Sale

You guys know I can't resist a great sale.. & the one going on at Piperlime is no exception. I was gutted to hear that they are closing their doors (& site) but I'm taking full advantage of the sales going on before that actually happens! If I were you, I wouldn't miss out on this one or you just might regret it.

Menswear Inspired

Long Cardigan: c/o Asos(On Sale!) - Stripe Tee Shirt: Zara similar Here - Jeans: Forever 21($24!!) - Necklace: c/o Purpose Jewelry - Hat: Topshop - Gold Cuff: c/o Gorjana - Loafers: Forever 21($24! & in 3 colors!) - Backpack: c/o Sorial similar Here

Sometimes Forever 21 can be hit or miss for me. The other day? Definitely a hit! These loafers & boyfriend jeans are both under $25 & how can you resist that? I'm seriously debating purchasing the loafers in rose gold & silver, they are that good. I've made it a goal to start mixing older pieces with newer pieces so that I'm using all of the pieces in my wardrobe more often. This look was perfect for a gloomy day in LA. Comfy & cozy will always be winning in my book! Now, if you're a bargain shopper like me, head on over & purchase these jeans & loafers. You can thank me later :)

I have always loved denim. Jeans & a tee shirt is my go-to & probably always will be. I love the simplicity & I love that you can wear denim pieces over & over without them being overused. I used to be anti denim on denim but can't seem to get enough of the combination these days. These jeans & this denim top are both so comfortable that I can't seem to get enough of them! & in case you haven't noticed, these booties are on constant repeat. It might become a problem.

Cream of the Crop

Sweater: Asos - Jeans: c/o DSTLD - Booties: Chloe - Bag: c/o GiGi NY - Sunglasses: c/o Zero UV - Earrings & Bracelet: c/o Kanupriya Necklace: c/o Joyiia

Let's just get right into it.. These booties guys!!! I have had my eye on these for so long & when I found them on sale, I literally couldn't resist. You guys know that I don't normally purchase very expensive things.. I think these booties & my Chanel bag are the only two high end accessories in my closet but man were they both worth the splurge! On another note, I have been wearing this bag daily since I got it & I'm so happy that it goes well with my booties because I think they will both be on repeat for a long time.

We spent this past weekend down in Del Mar, CA for a wedding & it was the perfect getaway. I'm going to be real with you guys for a minute. This year has not started off that great. Nothing terrible has happened but it almost feels like nothing is going our way. I'm not trying to complain to you guys but sometimes I just feel like I need to be honest with you all & explain why I've been a bit MIA this month. We're in the process of getting things together to move & our car got towed while we were out of town for a week & just dumb little things have been getting me a bit frustrated with life. I honestly think they are all just trials for me to realize how great life truly is. I sometimes have to be reminded that life isn't about the material things & sometimes things won't go the way we want them to. But when it all comes down to it, my life is in God's hands & I'm so thankful for the wonderful people I am blessed with. I go to sleep every night next to Kannon & Adam & I realize again & again how blessed I am & how happy I am just to have them in my life. Sometimes we just need little reminders to remind us that through all the stresses of this crazy life we are all living, we all have things to be thankful for. Enough of my rambling though! I love you guys for following along & I love the friendships I've been able to make through my blog. I hope you know I'm thankful for all of you as well & I hope you will stick around for awhile :)

This grey oversized sweater has been on repeat lately. You all know my obsession with comfy oversized sweaters & scarves, I just can't get enough of them. It's been rainy & gloomy here in LA this past weekend & so I wanted to bundle up with still looking put together. This sweater is such a steal at $41 too! I love when I love a piece of clothing & it's super reasonably priced too, it just makes me a happy girl. These jeans are my favorites, I have them in both grey & denim because they are perfectly distressed. If you read my post about my top 10 wardrobe essentials here, you know what I'm talking about :) I hope you all had a fabulous weekend. Ours was spent hanging out with friends, celebrating one of my best friends birthdays & taking care of our little babe who has had the worst cough for the past week. Hoping you all are staying healthy!!
