Joggers All The Time


Even though I feel like Los Angeles has a lot of bloggers I actually don't know that many. But a week or two ago I met up with Adri from Adri Lately! It's always fun to meet someone that you've been following for awhile in person. And Adri is so sweet and fun that our late lunch date flew by! Then we went and took some outfit pics! We didn't take any photos together but I swear that I actually met up with her! haha...

I actually think I've worn this outfit before on the blog but it's one of my favorite outfits to wear so why not show it twice? It's super comfortable and I love the print and colors. It's just such an easy outfit to throw together. Get a pair of printed pants, throw on a linen tee and you're good to go. I think this was the start of the heat wave in LA. It was super hot so I'm glad I wore light, loose clothing. 

If you don't own a pair of joggers you need to go and get a pair! They are my go-to item to throw on when I want to be comfortable yet still presentable. Here are some of my favorites:

Demi Moon

I don't know if you've heard but there's been a heat wave here in Southern California for the past couple of days. It's been at least 100 degrees everyday. I'm all ready to wear my fall clothes and then we get the hottest weather we've had all summer! 

So I basically only feel like wearing a tank top and denim shorts. But if I do have to get dressed I try to stick with light colors and my linen tees. I took some inspiration from Northern Style Exposure for this outfit. This outfit is so neutral that you can really have fun with the shoes and jewelry if you want. I decided to keep it all neutral and went for my silver perforated loafers - but my leopard heels/flats look just as good! 

And to complete the look I'm wearing the Demi Moon from the InfinEight Etsy shop! Mima runs this shop from Canada and specializes in organic/geometric jewelry. This fun, print necklace is new to her collection! I love that it's neutral enough to wear with almost any outfit and has a three inch extender chain so you can adjust the length and layer with other necklaces.

Or if the moon is not your thing, maybe you'd like the Blue Skies Pendant Necklace
What I like about these pieces is that they look like an abstract print from far away but when you get closer you can see it's a a moon or sky design.

InfinEight has a lot of different different necklace designs in the shop. My favorite are the geometric pendants made out of wood or brass. There are also pure silver pendants in fun, whimsical designs.

Nautical Nautical-5 Nautical-3 Nautical-4 I'm so jealous of everyone I'm seeing in blogland and on instagram wearing their fall scarves and jackets! It feels like summer is in full swing here in SoCal. It's been 95-100 degrees the last couple of days. I'd really like to be layering right now but it look like I'll have to keep wearing tank tops (with a denim jacket for air conditioned rooms!). The good thing is all the summer clothes are on sale now!

Speaking of fall - don't forget to vote for my Fall Fashion look for the Beverly Center Style Challenge! I'm just sad I won't be able to wear it for awhile because it's too darn hot for leather jackets! You can get more details and see my full outfit here. Thanks!

I'm excited to introduce you to Laura from A Touch of Tartan today! You can see she has a great sense of style but what I really like about her blog is her "Copy that Look" series where she takes celebrity outfits and recreates them for way less! She's here to tell you more about herself and her blog!

"My name is Laura and I'm a lawyer by day, blogger by night and a mummy to my Chow Chow, Yogi. I am in my twenties and blog from Glasgow, Scotland. If I had to describe my style I would call it casual smart and my favourite outfit colours would have to be black and red. 

I started A Touch of Tartan a couple of years ago and since then the blog has gone under a complete makeover and a name change. 

A Touch of Tartan is a lifestyle blog focusing on budget friendly fashion and beauty - we can't all afford to spend over £100 for each item in our wardrobe, after all. Posts mainly consist of individual looks, latest news/trends and wishlists and my "Copy that Look" series. The "Copy that Look" series takes celebrity outfits and re-creates them as closely as possible but without breaking the bank. I also take emails from readers if they are trying to re-create a look or find a celebrity item."

Make sure to stop by A Touch of Tartan and say hi! And follow Laura on Bloglovin // Facebook // Twitter // Instagram // Pinterest.

Happy Friday! I wore this all grey outfit to a girls night out date. Even though this outfit seems kind of dressy with the jeweled top and skirt it was actually reaallly comfortable. 

I added some color with my red lip. I'm wearing a color from Julep - a subscription box nail/beauty service. For $20 a month you can get a box of nail and/or beauty products that are tailored to your style. Or you can skip the month and not be charged. I actually forgot to skip this month and got a surprise in the mail the other day! (Thank goodness it's only $20) But I was pleasantly surprised. I actually love this lipstick. It lasted through dinner and it glides on smooth. I've found a bunch of great nail/beauty products from Julep. My favorites from Julep are:

Vanish Cuticle Softener and Remover: This stuff is amazing! It makes it so easy to clean up my cuticles and also removes some leftover nail color.
Blank Canvas Mattifying Face Primer: This helps my makeup go on smooth and last. Also helps absorb oil!
BareFace Cleansing Oil: You guys - this stuff is amazing! This cleanser gets rid of everything - including mascara/eyeliner. I've never used a cleanser that works as well. You have to be careful with oils though. Make sure your skin doesn't react badly to the rosehip seed oil. 

You can buy these products without being a member - it just makes the price a little higher. You should check out their site though. They have a lot of interesting products and more than just nail polish!

Even though everyone is talking about fall and layering and boots and sweaters - it's still really hot here! At least in California. So as much as I'd like to wear jackets and pants that's just not realistic right now.  My tank tops and skirts will have to stay out a little longer. 

I wore this outfit to a friend's bachelorette party to a winery. I wanted to feel girly so I wore my midi skirt with this floral tank and added this fun necklace. I just realized this necklace has not been worn as much as it should have this summer. I feel like it pretty much goes with anything because of all the colors in it. It's nice to have a statement necklace that's so versatile. 

And don't forget to vote for my outfit for the Beverly Center Style Challenge! You could win a $500 gift card as well! A BIG thanks to everyone whose already voted. It means a lot!
