As part of my Valentine's Day gift, B took me to the Getty Villa - a gorgeous museum set into the hills on the PHC. Looking out over the ocean, the Getty Villa features exhibits from Roman and Greek history; but the true beauty is the museum itself. With herb gardens, koi ponds, and fountains at every corner, it is more than just a museum. Honestly, this is the perfect date spot! If you ever find yourself in the area, I would definitely check it out - you do need tickets (they are free online) but parking is only $15!
Giving an old piece new life is one of the best ways to add character to your closet. For me, "grandpa sweaters" are definitely my fashion guilty pleasure - talk about Breakfast Club vibes. Paired with your favorite jeans and closed toe heels, this look is fool proof. (& comfy)
All The Details:
Top: St. Croix
Shoes: Karen Scott
Bracelets: Tiffany & Co. and Divinity LA
In honor of making it halfway through the week, I wanted to share this super easy look with you all! I am in love with this hat (Brixton) that I found on sale in the men's department of Urban Outfitters, along with their Urban Renewal button down. I love the tie-dye/distressed feel of this top - it definitely helps soften the look. (And of course I couldn't leave out the gold-studded, leather bag)
All The Details:
Bottom: 7 For All Mankind
Shoes: Nine West
Button-Up: Urban Renewal (Urban Outfitters)
Bag: Under One Sky
Hat: Brixton (Urban Outfitters)
Happy Valentine's Day lovelies! With B being stationed in 29 Palms, I won't be spending Valentine's Day with him, but that's not stopping me from eating a whole box of chocolates and waiting for the weekend to catch Fifty Shades Darker - wishing you the best V-Day!
Lately my mind has been in a whirlwind, and sometimes it's hard to get a grasp on everything that is going on. Hiking is my one outlet where I get to completely clear my mind and refresh. Solstice Canyon has been my go-to trail since I first moved to California, and continues to be my favorite adventure spot. Here's a glimpse of B and I's latest expedition!
"KARMA" Charm Choker, Tribal Woven Bracelet/Anklet & Gold Feather Ring - The Karma Jungle
The Crisis Classroom is a charity focused on providing education and resources to refugees; it is also the featured charity of The Karma Jungle (from now until March 2017). This inspirational (and trendy) jewelry company uses their "charity line" as a way to connect their customers to some of the most beneficial charities. (All profits from this line are donated!) With strong bohemian inspiration and beautiful morals, The Karma Jungle is definitely a brand I look forward to keeping around my jewelry box!

I've recently been putting extra time into creating new features for the blog, but I HAD to take a moment to share my latest and greatest accessory finds with you all. My first love is this luggage-inspired, jeweled purse (ALDO). It is so unique and actually offers a lot of space. I also wanted to share these oxford inspired shoes (Shellys London). With a timeless silhouette, the Emmas are definitely an effortless statement piece!. (Out of all of my shoes, I get stopped the most for these cuties)
Hope ya'll have a great Monday!
All The Details:
Top: American Rag
Bottoms: American Eagle
Shoes: Shellys London
Bracelet: Tiffany & Co.
Some of my favorite pieces are from the men's department, and stealing looks from B is nothing new. There is no shame in expanding your wardrobe by sneaking some of your man's favorites! Once I fell in love with his (Wilson's Leather) hat, I just couldn't help myself! I paired it with a 70s - inspired kimono and long sleeved knit body con dress to add some femininity to a rather masculine accessory!
What I Am Wearing:
Kimono: Forever XII
Shoes: Style & Co.
What He Is Wearing:
Hat: Wilson's Leather
Garnier Fructis Straightening Mist and Anti-Frizz Oil: My flat iron is my best friend so it is really important for me to counteract the heat. I use the oil on damp hair (prior to blow drying) and the straightening mist before applying any direct heat. I definitely notice a softer and smoother texture when I use these products and advise them for anyone who might have dryer ends.
Frutique Coconut Water Face Wash: This is my favorite new product! This is the perfect wash for anyone with sensitive or combination skin. Using the miraculous gifts of coconut water, Frutique hydrates and exfoliates - I have never used such a gentle face wash. Definitely a must-have!
Bath & Body Works Foaming Sugar Scrub: What I love about this body scrub is that it is affordable, accessible and comes in a huge variety of scents! (I personally love Love & Sunshine) This scrub is an intense exfoliant, but leaves my skin softer than it has ever been!
Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara: If you have not tried this mascara yet - it will only take one try to fall in love! It is my go-to makeup product, and I love that it doesn't dry too rigid, but still gives me the thickness and volume my lashes need.
