Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving! I have a lot to be thankful for on this day, looking back at my past year! It's been a great ride and I thank you if you have been following or even reading my blog! I talked with my mom on the phone (in Boston) and they got a heavy snow storm, and she was telling me how they had to clean up all the snow. And I was bundled up in my bed in LA with the expected high to be 84 today... haha! Since it is so nice out, this special occasion calls for a cute skirt and some heeled sandals! I love the pale pink color of the skirt from Charlotte Russe paired with black highlight pieces! Simple black tank top was $1.90 from Forever 21! Can you believe it?

I recently bought the purse by Franco Sarto form Marshall's for only $20! I was looking for a small black crossover body purse since my favorite one had the strap snap, and this was perfect! It's small, fashionable, and it has a built in wallet so I can put all my cards and cash! My iPhone 6 fits perfectly as well! Only downside is I can't fit a lot into it.

These are some of my favorite photos. Let me know what you think of this outfit!

Casual Thanksgiving Warmth

What to wear this week to the various holiday get togethers you may have?
Never fear, here are some comfortable but still stylish outfits! I'm loving chunky sweaters and flowy peplum tops with dark jeans or leggings! And I'm in love with smokey eye makeup with some dramatic red or coral/orange lipstick this season!

Coral and boots - perfect for LA "fall"

What's a girl to wear when it's still 60-70 in Los Angeles during the day but the temperatures drop to a chilly 55 in the evening? Being in lab all day, you lose track of the weather until I am ready to leave to go home for the evening. It might be warm on my walk to work but then when I leave I realize that the sun went down and it is chilly! Time to put my fall wardrobe to work, with the addition of almost knee-high boots to keep extra warm and a cardigan to cover up! I am in love with this coral top I received as a gift from my aunt in Cyprus from Debenhams. It is the perfect color and I love the print!

Fashion event in DTLA

FINALLY have my laptop back up and running after being out of commission for 3 months! Now back to more regular posting :)

I was recently invited to a Fashion event at a chic little boutique in downtown LA called 71Stanton. Hosted by FabCounsel and Sazan Barzani, we had a night of drinks, snacks, shopping, and a fashion show, styled by Sazan and modeled by some really awesome fashion bloggers! 
I left work "early" (5pm) to drive downtown and I was so happy I did! I had such a fun time!
The night started with some networking, socializing, and champagne. After the ice was broken and chatting with some friendly faces, a fashion show started, where fashion bloggers Mel from, Ruby from, and Rachael from showcased some amazing fashions using staple pieces from 71Stanton's AW 2015 collection! I loved them all! Everything looked so comfortable and so easy to style. Sazan did a great job styling pieces together! I had such a great time, I will definitely be back to add some pieces from the boutique to my closet! Here are some snap shots of the event and some of the outfits!

White skirt?! Oh my!

Today I am leaving work at a reasonable time (5 pm, which is rather early for me even though I was at work at 8am) to attend a fashion/blogger event in downtown LA! Figuring I wouldn't have much time to get home and change before having to leave, I adapted my outfit to be work appropriate! I recently bought this textured white bouncy skirt that I have been trying to wear, that I matched with a black tank top, black leggings, and my favorite pair of black boots! Not pictured here, but I am wearing a black and gold necklace! Pretty cute outfit if I may say, and easy to transition for work and events!
The boots are comfortable enough to wear while running around in lab (really, I'm not making this up!), and the leggings just complete the look!

It's also a little risky wearing a white skirt, since I tend to spill things on myself, but I managed to walk to work with my coffee in hand and not drip any on my white skirt (for once)!

Fall in LA - deep purple/Berry

My best friend from home came to visit me in LA after I went home for her sister's wedding! So of course we had to do some sight seeing and head over to Hollywood boulevard to the walk of fame! 
After being on the east coast where the temperatures were cooler and fall was in full bloom, I had to break out my boots I bought while at home and this really cute deep purple/berry dress I bought from H&M for not too much!  I am loving this color for the fall, it's so lovely! 
It is actually getting a little cooler in LA right now which is perfect! Although I would like to wear some cute jackets and sweaters as well...
I added a sparkly headband placed on top of my head for a boho chic feel, what do you think???
