Off the shoulder top Fresha SIMILAR :: Check out this $45 version! :: Jeans EXPRESS :: sandals SOLUDOS :: watch REBECCA MINKOFF

We were off to visit my aunt and didn’t plan to stop by this cute little street in Laguna Beach, but the road down was too inviting to miss. The kids wanted to stretch their legs after an hour drive from LA, and this little cove was the perfect rest stop. Never mind the fact that we parked illegally, at least it was for a short time to take in the views.

I got so many questions about this top I posted on Instagram, I thought I’d give you a couple selections below. I’m always surprised how much bang for the buck a red off the shoulder top is. It looks great with blue and white denim and even a fresh out of the shower wet braid.

Shop my faves below. How was your weekend?

5 Jeans Under $100


The best way to get out the door is have some favorite basics on hand. I’m loving the embroidered hem on these jeans, linen blend stripes and not too high block heels. And I never leave home without a large mom bag full of snacks, heels, and a small bag.

It’s been hard getting back into the saddle of my week since getting back from Chicago, school variety shows, homework and everything in between is taking up my time. One of my favorite style savers lately is a silky trench! I’m obsessed. It works out great with the chilly weather we’ve been having. Happy cloudy Wednesday from SoCal! I also talk about trenches in the Mother’s Day guide if you missed it.

Nordstrom Rack has beautiful essentials and many of my favorite brands at a discount. Think ruffles, gold earrings, flare jeans, and chic sandals. I love that this red ruffle blouse can be dressed up or down with white jeans or white pants. Options are key when my Monday often requires a blouse to transition from school drop-off to meetings to date night. Thankfully, Nordstrom Rack is a one-stop-shop for cute basics for the whole family. A friend told me about their mini Hunter boots and cute tops for my girls. So cute! See here my previous post with Nordstrom Rack. My advice is act fast to secure your size.




Thank you Nordstrom Rack for sponsoring this post!

Happy Humpday! I thought I’d share answers to some of my most asked questions:

How do I sign up for the emails for your Liketoknowit instagrams?

Go to Liketoknowit.com and sign up with your email – it takes a couple minutes and you can shop my outfit links from your email. So cool.

What sunglasses are you always wearing?

These are by Sunday Somewhere – I switch it up with my Quay which I also love.

What jeans and sandals were you wearing in yesterday’s boomerang?

sweater here (its on sale!),  jeans are by AG ex boyfriend slim, sandals are old Joie, I linked similar here.

What is your number one advice to someone starting out your blog or Instagram?

Be consistent. Find what works – study what your audience is responding to most and do more of that. There will be down days and up weeks, you just have to keep going. There are days I’m so tired the night before, but deadlines are real, even in a job that I love. The best part is its doing something I love so it never feels like a chore.

How did you grow your Instagram account?

Some big companies and accounts reposted me. It’s a great way to grow organically, which is the best way to grow.

What are you doing in Chicago next week?

I’ll be hosting an event with Tiffany & Co. May 3, email us if you want more info! mgmt@shalicenoel.com or rsvp to Tiffany@skoogproductions.com.

Hope that answered a couple of your questions, if I didn’t, what is your question?

Date night dinner plans ended up teriyaki chicken bowls a là costco. Gourmet I am not. At least I was before we had kids when I had a couple appetizer tricks up my sleeve. Alas, homemade cook, fail, but I’m winning in the shoe department. Happy Humpday!

Shopbop as you may or may not know is having their annual sale. I use it stock up on jeans, leather jackets, and cute shoes. I’m loving this one piece for Manhattan Beach days with the family, this shiny top to attend events, this leather jacket I already own and love, these jeans under $80, and these cropped jeans that feature shoes well. Also, don’t forget, its a great time to get a best friend’s Christmas gift or hubby a new leather jacket. Save up to 25% with code GOBIG17. It ends 3/4/17. What are you stocking up on?

 Hats are great to make any outfit more casual. I’m loving baseball hats on bad hair days, like today, or just to make an outfit less formal. A real quick way to make an outfit look put together and chic is a baseball cap and topcoat. Underneath I have a simple turtleneck and jeans. When I’m out running around with my boys while the girls are at school, we usually have lots of errands to run and all I need are easy separates and a chic coat. See more casual chic HERE. And here are a couple topcoats I’m loving from around the web. Happy Tuesday!

Ever since we moved to LA last January, I’ve been obsessed with old vintage cars. My favorite being the vintage Porsche 911. Amazing. I’m resolved to just stare from afar, or in this case, sit on this random orange Chevy as if it’s mine. I’m loving a pop of stripe to an overall basic outfit. If I wanted to switch it up, I’d add a black leather jacket, black boots, and a black bag. Basically, everyone needs a good striped blouse. Happy Monday!

Ramp up your basics with a camel coat (3/4 sleeve), and updated heels. I’m loving these slouchy jeans and cashmere sweater both from Vince. I tend to gravitate towards classic pieces, like a stripe top and flattering jeans, because I’ll probably wear them more than I’d like to admit, and they never go out of style. In other words, investment pieces. All of which I plan to wear for the upcoming date night over break. Can’t wait. In the meantime, read about our engagement story HERE. Merry Merry Christmas!
