Pop of red

One thing I will not be hanging in my closet much this spring is a red blazer. I’m obsessed would be a little modest. Even my 10 year old sees me in it and says, mom you look good in red, lol! This red trend or blazer, the latter of which is SUPER flattering, is not going anywhere.

Next, we have ribbon jeans by McGuire I’m loving because they’re super flattering and distressed! I styled them with red wrap heels and a plain white tee every stylish girl needs a couple of these. Especially as a mom, I have So many white tees. Styling tip? Buy them in bulk!

Red and camel are one of my favorite color combinations. Reid’s aunt gave me a vintage camel coat and I couldn’t get enough. This combination is so classic and camel seems to highlight most colors like red.  Notably so, this sweater is under $40, so don’t feel badly about this impulse purchase. I don’t think I’m the only one who is having the hardest time not buying all the sweaters. I wish my girls would wear them because they look so cute on them with leggings. As I write, I’m wearing one and sweating, ha. Gotta love SoCal Winters. Since red sweaters are so essential and you probably own or should own at least one this holiday season, I rounded up 5 red sweaters under $168.

Happy  Weekend!

H&M is killing the sweater game, and if you’re not convinced, just peak at their new arrivals are you’re sure to fill your cart with goodies. As I write, I have 6 items in my cart, ha!  The hardest decision may be what color to get – I mean I almost ordered 3 red sweaters in as different knit, crazy! However you cannot ignore the fun price point – mostly under $25 and a couple mohair or cashmere under $100. That’s good because my kids Christmas lists have about three Lego sets each – that’s 12 Lego sets total, so I’m good with $20 sweaters and splurging on the boots. How about you?

Happy Humpday!

Red gets a bad rep for being too bold or even dramatic, but it’s actually one of my favorite colors to wear. We’re seeing it everywhere this fall, so even if you’re not a fan (yet), I wanted to share a few ways to style the color. Enter: My Style Red Series!


To kick things off, I wanted to talk about using red as a pop of color. Especially if the color feels too loud to you, there’s no better way to incorporate than with minimal styling tricks at a minimal price tag. It’s such a fun color to use as a statement piece, and I’ve always loved a good red shoe, bag or pair of killer earrings. Plus, you don’t need to spend a lot to get the effect.


Any neutral will work as your base for pops of red, but camel is less contrast than say red and black or white. Think gray, camel, brown, taupe, etc. as amazing colors to mix with – or even a floral print. I’m super into this chic camel dress – it’s not only flattering, but I like the juxtaposition of the neck coverage while it hugs the body (in all the right places, I promise!).


Since the dress is so neutral, I threw on these cool statement earrings, with equally as cool red booties. The combo is unexpected but complimentary at the same time – and perfect for any holiday parties this year. You don’t have to wear red everywhere to get the effect of the color – choose one or two places to add the pop and you’re good. Anything more, and things will look too matchy-matchy.

Feeling ready to add that pop of red now?

Happy Monday! We just got back from a whirlwind weekend in Carlsbad enjoying all the kid-friendly things to do there. I’d be very tempted to move there if it wasn’t so far from work in West Hollywood. As an on-the-go mom, I rely heavily on casual pieces that can go with everything. Unless it’s date night or an event for work, you can find me in everyday pieces that I can throw on and off as I head to a meeting, a school event, whatever. My hair and makeup is usually pretty minimal too, if I’ve done anything at all.


But just because I live in basics doesn’t mean I like to look or feel blah. I’m actually pretty picky about the casual basics that I buy, and always look for a detail that makes the piece stand out or look special. Or by adding a fun lipstick, usually in the form of a red.


Unique details, bright lips, or a pair of bold earrings are easy ways to take jeans and a cashmere hoodie to the next level – see these photos for proof. This cashmere sweater keeps this outfit chill, but how fun is the red stitching detail? Red always stands out to me, so it’s a detail that I look for when shopping for elevated basics.


A mixed pop of red on my ears and lips and the outfit instantly looks more put together than jeans, a bare face and a hoodie, right? All it takes is keeping an eye out for elevated basics and a bold swipe on your lips. Something even us moms have time for (usually!). Happy Monday!

I’m not sure what I love more, long summer nights sipping wine on the porch or awesome bodysuits I can’t stop wearing Monday through Saturday. I’ve been wearing this ruffled one so much so, its embarrassing. Even hubby made a comment! It’s chic with jeans, a skirt or pleated pants. Here, I’m wearing it with a linen trench, distressed jeans and fall’s must-have red boots. I’m linking some of my favorites below. Hope you have a lovely Monday!


A bodysuit is a summer must-have that easily transitions to fall. And did I mention a bodysuit with an interesting back is even better? Here are some of my favorites:


Red boots are fall’s stunner, get them before they sell out during NYFW. I love them with denim or a punch of color paired with a monochromatic look:


I love a lightweight trench for layering casual or dressy looks. It’s an easy way to look “pulled together” without trying too hard.


What are some of your favorite layers?

I’m loving polka dots lately! I can’t seem to get enough. From socks to tops, this print is crazy versatile and this skirt is no exception. I may change it up this weekend for our froyo date night by pairing this skirt with a denim shirt, white tee (on sale) or this unexpected $24 blouse. Happy weekend!
