you're a virgin who can't drive

Anyone get the reference in my post title? Shame on you if you didn't! This outfit is giving off major Clueless vibes and I love it! Truth be told the first time I watched Clueless in full was a lot later in life. I remembered my friends being hooked on it when I was a kid but I never got around to watching it (now shame on me, right?) until maybe 3-4 years ago. Now I am full fledged obsessed and I probably quote that movie way too much. So every once is a while I will take a style cue or two from the lovely ladies Cher, Dionne, and Tai.

Always a fun time hanging out with the roomie. We work so often that even though we live together, we hardly get a day off at the same time. So when we do, we try to take full advantage. Kind of funny how we unintentionally matched that day.

Well this was certainly a fun look to put together. It had been a while since I last wore my cookie monster coat, and since I'm obsessed with all things fluffy this season, I knew it was the perfect time to bring it back out of my closet again. And what better way to wear an electric blue fluffy coat than to pay homage to one of my favorite movies? Did you guys go through a Clueless phase as well? What were your favorite movies growing up?

rain or shine

The bf and I walked around dtla yesterday on a mission for cat food. It was lightly raining and we decided to try to kill two birds with one stone and do a quick shoot on the way to the pet store. Rain or shine (or extreme wind), nothing was gonna stop us.

Saw this bag at Zara the other day, and it was giving me major Falabella vibes. Knew I had to take it home with me and I'm pretty happy about that decision.

Thank you Tomtop for this army green parka, it saved my life on a windy rainy day. One of my favorite styling tricks on a cold day, is the tried and true opaque tights under denim shorts combo. It will never go out of style and you can still feel stylish even when you have to pack on the layers. And one layer was really all I needed with this jacket. It's surprisingly warm, and even though I was only wearing a thin tank top inside, I was nice and toasty. And with that, the army green parka is instantly added on my list of LA winter essentials.

dots on dots

Hey guys! The weather in LA has been very fickle lately. Last weekend it was nice and sunny so I wore this open kimono top with a cutout cami. I love how this kimono top cinches at the waist, it gives you a nice shape even though the silhouette is on the loose side. It's a pretty loud piece so I left the rest of my outfit neutral and casual.

Last weekend I met with my girl Judy to do a little cactus shopping for our apartments. I saw photos of this place floating around Instagram and knew I wanted to visit, so we stopped by one afternoon and took in all the magic that is known as Cactus Store. Not gonna lie, the place is teeny tiny but the presentation is what draws you in. There are so many interesting looking cacti and so many varieties to choose from. I love having plants all over my house and since I'm not home as often as I like, I need a sturdy plant that doesn't need too much attention from me. Cacti and succulents are the perfect plants to live in my home so whenever I get the chance, I add to my collection. If you're in the Echo Park area, I definitely recommend stopping by Cactus Store to pick up a few plants. I already want to go back next weekend for some more!
