Meet My Friends Carrie & Aria

Welcome Back to the good ole south!
My travels on the west coast were fabulous but unfortunately they have come to an end. So back to reality I go. I will have some post up soon sharing with you my adventures & some outfits I wore along the way. Until then some southern shots will have to do.

I love today's outfit for 3 main reasons: 
1- The pants are from Free People & they have all of there ankle cropped colored jeans on sale for $39!
2 - The shirt is also from FP & Aria wore this on Pretty Little Liars, which I am obsessed with.
3 - I love any excuse to wear these shoes, I call them my Carrie Bradshaw shoes because they remind me of the ones she wore in the opening scene of the second movie.

STEAL - Animal Style

I love that animal tees & sweaters are so in style right now.
Here Kate Bosworth is rocking a Burberry owl sweater that costs
a pretty penny. So I want to rock my own furry creature sweater
but on a much more affordable level. So look at this steal I found.

Get your animal gear on!

Anniversary & A Surprise!

Today is my 4 year anniversary of marriage to my best friend & the greatest husband a

Umami Burger Thru My Iphone

An adult cream soda. Yum!
 Cheese filled tater tots
Love the black ceiling with chandeliers! Makes eating
hamburgers even classier
Burgers are tastier when you are eating with these 2 beauties
The sauces are just as good as the burgers! 
Umami sauce, garlic aioli  & jalapeno ranch
 The Umami Burger! Shitake mushroom, carmelized onions, roasted tomato, 
parmesan crisp & umami ketchup.
Umami margarita & an adult shirley temple.

There is so much yummy food here in LA! I don't even know where to begin. 
Umami was so tasty, I ate every bite. Plus throw in the swanky atmosphere & the decor 
of big red swivel thrones as seats & chandeliers on the ceiling & you seal the deal for me.
 If you live in the area or are visiting you should definitely visit it, there are a few different locations.

Eat a tasty burger & enjoy your day!

STEAL! Cap Toe Is In

AMAZING!! (imagine me singing that because that is what just happened!)
Love these shoes for 3 reasons:
1 - Cap toed anything is super hot right now!
2 - This is a sexy shoe that is work or play appropriate.
3 - They are from ASOS so it means they are a steal

Black & Chambray = My Happy Place

Hello Tuesday! Day 2 in L.A. & I am sure it will be a day full of adventure.
Yesterday was a jam-packed day that was complete with a 6 1/2 tour from the
amazing James C. We hit up a little shopping, a lot of coffee & some of the big
LA tourist spots (Griffith Observatory, Old LA Zoo, Warner Bros. Lots, and more).
Pictures to come soon :)

Shoes - Madden Girl
Chambray Shirt - Forever 21 (similar)
Purse - Nordstrom Rack
Dress - Free People

So there are a few trends happening in this post.
1 - Chambray shirt (we talked about it here ) is probably the biggest go-to item of the year!
 It can be dressed up or down & goes with practically everything.
2 - Shirt buttoned all the way up. This is a big trend right now, in menswear as well, and
I am not the biggest fan of it but with certain ensembles it works beautifully
3 - Polka Dots! They are one of the "it" patterns of the season & they add a feminine
  touch to any outfit.

Have you tried any of these trends? Do they work for you?
Have a great day! Enjoy every minute of it :)
