Gangsta Rap Made Me Do It

Yup - totally bought this. My favorite rap song is by Juvenile after all! You can find the gangsta muscle tee here for $15.99.

Went for a seaside dinner recently and put together this little number. I’m loving easy t-shirt dresses right now, especially ones with stripes. I found this one at Target during a would-be quick trip. Let’s be real - can you really even make a speedy trip to Target?

Rainy-Day Duds

This was a recent nighttime outfit on a rainy day, which also coincided with National Sushi Day (had no idea). Weirdly enough, I actually ate at a sushi restaurant and wondered why it was so packed.

I combined some of my favorite things for this getup - distressed jeans (I seriously have an out-of-control obsession), lace-up heels, a muscle tee and casual blazer. I’m constantly cold so it’s a great option for the always-freezing movie theaters.

Back to Reality - California Vacay Aftermath

I’m still trying to adjust to the three-hour difference in the time zones, but my California vacation was divine. I loved my week away and missing the Cali weather already! I was downloading the pictures and thought I would show you a few from the trip. If you ever want to plan a trip to the Napa Valley area, definitely feel free to ask me anything!

I love shift dresses, tunics…pretty anything that channels that I-just-threw-this-on look while managing to look uber chic. I wore this neutral ZARA tunic for a night out. Our outdoor cat - Oliver - seemed to be giving me rubs of approval. What can I say? He has good taste!
