Hello Lovelies! Since the weather out there is getting frightful, I thought today would be perfect for a little Throwback Thursday to our travels in South Africa and walks on the beach, when there was sun on my face and sand beneath my feet. :) Yes.. would definitely be there instead right now. Or anywhere that has a beach. With sun. Sign me up!! We have so many memories of time spent by the ocean as kids, it’s like there is a lifetime full of special moments in the memory bank. But there’s nothing like making new memories and finding those unique moments in every new day. I absolutely love this look – so casual and easy-going. Simply take a cute top (that could be either dressed up or down), and throw on your favorite pair of jeans for a stroll along the beach. In the summertime, these classic leather Tory Burch sandals are a definite staple in my wardrobe. They go with everything, and are super comfy to walk in! After the sun sets, it gets quite cool by the water. So I always have a cozy knit sweater handy for just such an occasion. What are some of your favorite memories that you’ve made this year? Xo

Check out the video of our afternoon at the beach here!

Hello, Lovelies! Hope you are all having the best week! Today on the blog is one of my new favorites… this cozy white knit sweater. There are a few must-haves that I keep in my closet as winter is creeping up on us! When it’s cold outside, I love cozying up in a cozy knit sweater. It is definitely a cool weather staple every fashion girl needs and I keeps on high rotation. Whether it’s at home snuggled under a blanker, at the office, or while out making the most of the weather outside, it fits any winter occasion. For today I styled it as a casual look, with a colorful scarf, a chunky trooper jacket and my favorite Nike sneakers. Always such a good feeling to enjoy every bit of the season before the snow hits. Then it will be a whole new world of snow out there! What are some of your cold-weather fashion staples? Xo

Hello, lovelies! As you may know by now, brunch is one of my favorite meal times… ever! :D For my hubby’s birthday, we tried out the brunch at Charbar, down by the river. Their menu is always so unique, and they offer delicious Phil & Sebastian coffees too! For breaky Linda and I opted for the crushed whole avocado on toasted sourdough with fried eggs, and of course, added bacon! My Hubby had the village breakfast with beef chorizo, bacon, eggs, and sourdough. We were also completely spoiled with a little sweet starter, on the house! We got to try to deep-fried french toast bites with dulce de leche caramel dipping sauce… YUM! :) Definitely a must-try when you stop in for brunch at Charbar. What are some of your favorite brunch spots in the city? Xo

Hello, Lovelies! Happy Monday to you all. Today on the blog is a fun, free-spirited look captured before the greens of summer were completely gone, but fall was definitely in the air. I love a simple, all-white look. There’s just something about it that makes for a fresh feel, reminiscent of summer. Yet, I find this breezy head-to-toe all-white look is perfect for the fall season. A great way to make this monochromatic look more exciting is to add in a few different textures. Like this knit-cardigan and the distressed look of the denim. The different fabrics add that extra something to spice up the look. Plus, what is better than throwing in a nude heel to smooth out the look while still keeping it uniform? Now accessories give you a whole other way to play with the style and round off the all-white look with a pop of color. Let the white attire be your backdrop on which to play, and find ways to “create art” with your accessories. Add a dainty piece, like a simple pendant necklace, for an understated look that lets you be the focal point. Finally, play around some more with the textures in the accessories as well! This rose gold mesh watch strap and snakeskin green purse makes for the perfect additions, truly capturing fall time in the forest. What are some of your favorite ways to pull off an all-white look?

Hello, my lovelies! It’s already Friday, and I am actually really excited for this weekend. We get to attend the Jaguar Art of Performance Tour event! Absolutely love the Jaguar F-Type these days, so I am definitely looking forward to the event. As a little inspiration for the event, I put together this cozy, sporty fall look. With the weather being not that cold, but not too hot either, it is perfect for a cute puffy vest! It just keeps you nice and warm in the chilly air. I paired it with a black long-sleeve, a cozy scarf, and a comfy pair of stretch skinny jeans. Of course, I also strapped on my favorite Medium Rose Gold watch (read more about it here)! To keep the look sporty, I also threw on these super comfy Nike sneakers, which I have been my go-to white sneaks this summer. I just love how putting together a few key staple items can create such a vibrant fall look to keep you cozy, comfy, and warm! Hope you all have a lovely weekend Xo
