All Black, All Day






It's either been a) cold or b) rainy... or actually, most of the time, both. It's rare that I get to wear a dress in the Bay without tights... but I did sneak one day in! This dress is super comfy, and it was perfect to head out in and grab a bowl of ramen. These boots hardly make an appearance anymore because of the rain! I am constantly checking the forecast before I head out in weather that could possibly damage my clothes/shoes! Spring couldn't come sooner.

#FFTravels: My Umbrella





Right before leaving Catalina Island, it started to rain. Nothing too heavy, and it was actually kinda fun walking along the shoreline and getting silly with my umbrella. For reference, Catalina is a small island about an hour away from Long Beach by ferry. It is quaint, friendly, and there are some stunning views and hikes. After grabbing some Mexican food, I walked the length of the main strip, then went and hopped on the ferry back toward LA!

#FFTravels: Cool in Catalina






For an overnight stay in Catalina, I didn't want to pack a lot since you have to carry your luggage onto a ferry, and then roll it a few blocks down to your hotel once you get to the island. Less was certainly better than more when dealing with this scenario. Once I arrived, the skies were clear, the sun was setting, and it was simply breathtaking on the island. 

I will say two things about Catalina: a one day visit is plenty of time, and prepare for food that isn't all that. While I loved every moment of this cute little island, there isn't a ton to do but relax, and I certainly don't recommend for kids. Sip some coffee, walk around, take some pics... oh, and enjoy the ferry ride both ways!

#FFTravels: Hollywood Swingin'








Hi everyone! It might be tough to make out, but behind me is the Hollywood sign. These pics were taken in the little strip mall on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. I had a very rare 3 days off, so I took advantage of it and took an impromptu trip to LA! It was a packed 3 days, I must say. Arrived early Saturday, went straight to Universal Studios (loved the tram ride and the Simpsons 3D), ate at Din Tai Fung, shopped at the Americana...and again, this was all just the first day! Day 2 included breakfast at Porto's Bakery (a MUST try if you're ever in Glendale!), followed by Hollywood Blvd, and then sailing to Catalina. 

Surprisingly, I didn't shop much in LA. I was too busy taking in the sights and sounds.

Galentine's Picks

Galentine's

No significant other this Valentine's Day? No problem! If anything, I miss the elementary school days when we'd send each other candygrams and hand out cards and lollipops to our peers :) Lowkey shouldn't admit this, but I continued that tradition until about 3 years ago! Here are some fun picks that you can give to your sister, mom, best friend, etc. In fact, Valentine's Day is the perfect opportunity to treat yourself!

Wear to Work: Paisley Dress








Hey all! How was your weekend? I wanted to share this shirt dress with you all. I am notorious for wearing all black or black-based outfits to work- but wanted to mix in a pattern, while still being confident and professional.

The Best Bright Blue








When it comes to coats, J. Crew is king! No one has better style selection, quality, and color picks like J. Crew & it's Factory store. Take this bright blue number- it comes with a detachable furry hood, deep pockets, and a wonderfully sturdy zipper. Usually, these coats do the talking for themselves, so I keep the rest of the outfit pretty basic, although I could wear just about anything with this royal blue coat! My tip is to NEVER pay full price on J. Crew items... deals ranging from 30-50% off occur almost daily, so you need to keep checking before you make the purchase.
