I love my jeans but there’s nothing as comfortable as my jeggings! They’re stretchable, lightweight, and great for staying cool during the summer. Jeggings normally fit your body like a glove and will accentuate every single little bumps. It doesn’t matter if you’re a size XS or XL, there are some things better left to the imagination. So to avoid the world from knowing I have butt dimples seeing unnecessary things, I like to pick a longer or over-sized top to give the jeggings a more refined look. :)

I wore this outfit when I was running around last week but threw on the shiny metallic Jimmy Choos and added the bold necklace for some extra sparkle for the evening. Since I’m on the go a lot, it’s important that I can find pieces that can easily transition me from day to night. Go here, for more denimocracy or here to purchase the pants!

Jersey Girl on Valentine’s Day


This is an amazing comfortable jersey maxi skirt that I spotted on a trip to Target to check out the Prabal Gurung collection. I love how it hugs the hips and flares out at the bottom, accentuating your curves yet still flow and move with so much ease.

I actually came for these neon green beauties but if you have been to Target, you’d know that you never really leave with just one thing…

I hope you are having a lovely day today and that someone special has put a big smile on your face. If they didn’t, just punch them in the stomach when they walk by. :)

I really can’t believe how fast this year is flying by. It’s already mid February, and you know what that means. No, not the NBA All Stars! It’s Valentine’s Day! I don’t technically celebrate because I feel like it’s such a commercial gimmick to put pressure on both men and women and I don’t like how it singled out individuals who doesn’t have a significant other…so I never really expect Nate to waste money on flowers that are doubled the price or dinner that tripled. Instead, I prefer a nice quiet evening at home with a yummy home cook meal. Usually I don’t like to share my kitchen, but tonight we’ll cook together. Well, I’ll be cooking while he gets in the way and makes a mess. :)

Whatever you do and whoever you love, celebrate love in any form it comes! Enjoy it and celebrate it every day of the year!

The Crop & The Print





After trimming my bangs, for some reason the ombre highlights became very noticeable. I really love the subtle highlights so I can’t wait to get a toner touch up this weekend to darken the brightness.

One of my beloved items that I wear with almost everything high waisted these days is this crop top. Although it’s a plain basic crop, it can look totally chic when paired with fun prints and vibrant colors. Speaking of prints, I’m on a leopard high this week. It’s a neutral that’s bold, sexy, daring and a total pick-me-up whenever I want to make a little statement.

Hope you’re having a fab Wednesday so far!

Nate and I spent last weekend in Carmel to unwind, check out some local shops, did a little wine tasting, dine at some of our favorite restaurants when he first moved out here from New York and we even tried to take a walk on the beach. Yeah, the latter was bad idea. It was very cold! Even though the sun was gorgeously shining, the temperature was nowhere near warm and I can feel the chilly breeze furiously blowing against my leggings. Luckily I was layered on top with a thermal tee, a chambray top and knit wool sweater that kept me pretty cozy for most of the day…

This weekend we’ll be staying in Vegas for business but I’m very excited to check out the shops and eat my heart out at all of our favorite restaurants. We typically like to stay on the strip but if you’re ever going on a busy weekend and want to stay in Vegas on a budget, two of my favorite off the strip hotels (but very close by) are the Orleans Casino Hotel and the Platinum Hotel & Suites which is a gorgeous boutique hotel with suites from 950 to 2,200 sq feet for a fraction of the price compared to most hotels on the strip.

I hope whatever you decide to do this weekend, you’re spending it with someone you love. Have a warm and wonderful long weekend!
