“The Toron” sandwich from Baco Mercat which consists of oxtail hash, cheddar tater, and horseradish was sinfully delicious; like no joke it was foodgasmic. I flat out said “this is greasy but in the best way possible!” 0_o.

Well this cupcake store was right across the street so I couldn’t resist. My favorite is the lemon flavor cupcake and the banana walnut is super yummy too!

I’ve been spending quite a bit of time filming and editing but I am enjoying my time out here in L.A.! This post is definitely more of a food post so if you’re looking for more outfits and fashion inspiration definitely check out my latest video!

 

Red Rock Canyon

Hi everyone! I just got back from a trip to Las Vegas with my family. Oddly enough the only times i’ve been out here is with my family. This was my first time visiting this beautiful scenic route out at Red Rock Canyon. Despite the temperature reaching record highs we managed to get some shots. It was hard to choose which ones as my sister Sadie did such a great job with this impromptu shoot. :) Hope you enjoy the images!

Parish Dinner and Outfit

IMG_8493mini

Recently I dined out with some girlfriends at a restaurant called Parish to celebrate a birthday. It is quite dark inside this historical space but fortunately we sat right by a large window. I appreciate amazing natural lighting too much to not have taken advantage of it! Everything looks mouth-wateringly delicious doesn’t it?? :)

I rarely crave fried chicken (ironic since i’m down here in the south) but seriously if you order anything from here–get the fried chicken! It has the right amount of breading and crisp with a light sweetness that just leaves you wanting more!

Onto the outfit! I knew the restaurant had more of a casual yet trendy ambience so I decided to dress up my day wear a little for our girls’ evening out. I switched out my day bag for this cute little Forever 21 chevron clutch. Then I threw on my Zara red sandal heels (still loving these too much) and a punch-y lip color. All quick little changes were made along with some quick photos taken by my sister 10-15 minutes right before reservation time! :)

I’ve loved this floral romper since last summer and i’m still wearing it and styling it in different ways. It was really warm out that day but I wanted an extra cover up and layering piece. The light chambray vest has been perfect over tanks and such and suits my more casual style.

Moss Meets Neon

I have to admit this outfit didn’t come “naturally” to me even though it kind of exudes a nature-like and earthy vibe doesn’t it? Ok sorry but if we are going to be friends you’re going to have to put up with my lame jokes 😛

Many days I question and struggle with what I want to wear. This one was a result of dumping another outfit that I felt was too try-hard for the mood I was in that day.

Christine_04-16-2013_023

I told myself to dial it down and go with something casual; more effortless. The last missing component was of course: SHOES! Why else do we girls always feel like we need a billion shoes?

Even if in your mind you may think “nope that is just a strange pairing”, try it anyways! Many pairs of shoes later, I slipped on the neon sandals and smiled with content :)

Spring Pastels & Floral

Florals, pastels, and just girly colors in general never fail to make me feel a bit more feminine. I was inspired by the blooming flowers and beautiful oncoming warm Spring weather that day.

I even threw on my Smiley earrings because beautiful weather and sunshine just makes me so happy! :)

Logging Back In :)

Hey guys! Guess who is blogging again? 😉 I’ve been wanting to get this baby back up to speed since the beginning of the year! One of my dreams was to have my own style diary so you can expect to see more outfit posts on here as well as the occasional beauty and lifestyle posts. :)

These images were shot on a warm beautiful day as Spring was quickly approaching. I of course have to thank my boyfriend Matt for having the patience with the shoots we’ve done so far considering he is primarily a food photographer. ^^

Please feel free to share your thoughts! I always love hearing from you. <3

This sleeveless high-low dress had been sitting in my closet unworn for far too long. I found myself enjoying the dress much more as a skirt so I decided to contrast the delicate flowy material of the dress with the faux leather top.
