We went to Vegas one weekend to get out of town and escape the rain in LA, only to find that it was also raining there! Even though the weather wasn’t too great on the first day, we still enjoyed our time just relaxing at the spa, eating brunch, and then going to the Baz Show at the Palazzo. I wanted to get some pictures outside while there was a little break from the rain but we couldn’t make our way out in time and then it started raining right when we started getting some shots in! So forgive my wet outfit and hair!
I purchased these trouser pants recently for a more tailored look while also being comfy. I love these mauve pink pants because they are a little more color than I usually wear and they fit just perfectly! Topshop is a great place for petite gals because they offer shorter length bottoms, so I highly recommend!

I often find myself not enjoying a lot of the beautiful sights and attractions that LA has to offer, so I’m making it a goal to visit different spots in LA. We live in such a lively and fast paced city, but because I’ve lived here my entire life, I often take the weather, the beauty for granted. We went to visit LACMA a few weekends ago so that I could finally see that giant rock art installation called Levitated Mass in person. I really thought it was the coolest thing even though some may say it’s just a big rock sitting on a concrete canal. Yes, that’s what it is, but it’s still pretty amazing.
I wore my new off shoulder blouse from J.Crew, new shoes, and had some time to make my hair look a little nicer. One mistake though, was trying to break in my new shoes while walking around. Definitely paid for that with some cuts and blisters.

This outfit came out of pure laziness. I wanted to look slightly put together yet leisurely all at once so I paired this lovely black blouse with split sleeves with a pair of joggers. Just throw on some comfy flats or mules and you’re good to go! I love this because I’m incredibly comfy but it’s still acceptable for going about my day. I just got some shopping, brunch, and some errands done that day.

LE PAIN QUOTIDIEN
I always love coming here for brunch and wanted to dedicate an entire Foodie Friday post to this place! They have so many healthy options for when I want to have a lighter and nutritious meal, except when I decide to add on sweets and pastries. I dare you to try to NOT get any of their pastries!
My sister and I went to have brunch together and my eyes went straight to these little pancakes! They are super cute and bite sized but smothered in syrup, powdered sugar, and finished with a dollop of whipped butter. Good thing we shared it! We each also got our own dishes so I also got my veggies in! 🙂
My sister and I took our parents to the Malibu Wine Safari Tour a little while ago. We thought it would be a great family activity to do together one weekend and I’d have to say that it was a success! My parents loved the animals we got to see, the wine tastings, and the cute little vintage trailer display. It was pretty chilly that day so I was glad that I wore a sweater and boots. I saw a few girls on the tour that wore shorts and were covered in goosebumps. Super happy with my outfit decision! Just threw on a hat and some sunglasses and I was ready for the safari!

Here is an outfit comprised of things that I love. A soft button up blouse, ripped denim, and slip on mules. They make it so easy to put an outfit together and I feel like it creates such an effortless look. We went out for brunch and walked around shopping, so I didn’t really need to dress up too much and wanted to be able to walk around comfortably. These mules are one of my favorite pieces right now. They are so easy to throw on and even though they’re super comfy, I feel like they also dress up any outfit. The faux leather, the bow details, and the pointed toe really makes it feel chic and expensive (but they really weren’t. Thanks for your great shoe selection, Zara!).

LIMECRIME CASHMERE VELVETINE LIQUID MATTE LIPSTICK
I often carry this in my purse when I go out for evening events or things where I have to dress up a little more. This velvetine matte lipstick does what it says and dries matte, while also staying on for a good amount of time! That way, I don’t really have to worry about reapplying unless I eat. Sometimes, matte lip creams tend to be really drying but I like Limecrime’s formula because it’s really smooth and doesn’t dry out my lips. I also love the cool nude color on my skin tone. I’ve seen this on other skin tones and I noticed that it does translate different on other people but it still really does look good on everyone!
RIMMEL LONDON LASTING FINISH LIP BY KATE MATTE COLLECTION – 101
I am all for affordable drugstore lipsticks and this is one of my favorite pink ones. It’s matte, which is great and is a light pink. The smell is somewhat sweet and although it’s matte, I find it still very moisturizing.
MAYBELLINE COLOR SENSATIONAL LIP COLOR – TOTALLY TOFFEE
Here’s another drugstore lipstick. I got this as a gift and totally fell in love with it. It’s a warm pink/nude color that has a little shine to it. It is more moisturizing and smoother than the matte lipsticks I have and I just think it’s really pretty!
TARTE LIPSURGENCE LIP STAIN – EXPOSED
This is something I always carry in my purse. It’s almost like a tinted matte lip balm, so it has a pretty color but is also very soft and smooth. There is a minty smell to it, so if you’re not a mint fan, I wouldn’t recommend it. I really like it and it’s perfect for when I feel like my lips are too barren or even if I need a little moisture.
MAYBELLINE COLOR SENSATIONAL LIP COLOR – DARINGLY NUDE
I love how natural this looks on my skin tone and is a beautiful soft nude color. Like the other Maybelline lipstick I listed above, this one is also moisturizing and smooth.
I am all for comfortable shoes that still look chic and put together. Mules have been a go to for me lately because I hate flats that rub against the back of my ankle, so because mules are backless, they save me from blisters and cuts! Mules are like mullets for your feet! Business in the front and a party in the back! I recently purchased the ones pictured above because of the bow details from Zara (similar HERE) so you could often find me in them when the weather permits!

FEMININE AND ROMANTIC TEXTURES FOR VALENTINE’S DAY
I’ve always loved lace because there’s something so beautiful about it. It’s very feminine and adds a touch of romance to any outfit. I’m sure it’s nothing new but if you’re still trying to figure out an outfit for your Valentine’s Day date, you can’t go wrong with wearing a little bit of lace. If you find it very unoriginal, you can always go with wearing a silk lace camisole under a coat or cardigan. But if you’re not afraid of going all out, there are plenty of beautiful lace dresses that’ll do the job!
