Black Leather Jacket + Destroyed Denim

Jacket: All Saints {obsessed} | Tank: Free People {currently price matched & only $14} | Jeans: Zara {super similar HERE} | Shoes: Christian Louboutin | Handbag: Valentino {also love THIS} | Sunglasses: Cèline | Lips: NARS 'Barbara'

What can I say, when I become obsessed with something, I realllllly obsess over it.  After looking for the perfect leather jacket over the past couple of months, I came across two that I couldn't live without.  (So dramatic, I know. :)  However, one was neutral and THIS one is black, so that worked out perfectly!  I wanted to wait to purchase it until I was in CA, so I could really see the detail and try it on.  I love the quilted pattern on the shoulders, it reminds me of a really badass, vintage motorcycle jacket and I love that.  Definitely another investment, staple piece added to my closet that I couldn't be more excited about!

Happy Memorial Day, loves!  I'm so thankful for everything that today represents.  There's nothing more heroic than the selfless, amazing men & women who sacrifice their lives each and every day for ours.  

Greater love has no one than this, that he lay his life down for his friends. - John 15:13

Also, today is my little brother and sister in laws ONE year anniversary and I couldn't be more proud of them!  Happy Anniversary Jamie & Kell - we love you!!

Thanks so much for stopping by, xx.

My LA Leather Jacket


Photos by: Arielle Levy Photo

Jacket: IRO {also love THIS for less than $100} | Tank: UO {closet staple + only $29} | Jeans: AG | Shoes: Valentino | Handbag: Louis Vuitton 'Pochette' {similar HERE} | Bralette: Anine Bing |  Sunglasses: Ray Ban | Earrings: Chanel | Watch: MK | Bracelets:  David Yurman {onetwothreefour} | Rings: David Yurman {onetwo} | Lips: MAC 'Stripdown' + YSL 'Blankety'

When I was in LA a couple of months ago for the first time, I kept asking my girlfriends who live there what to wear out to dinner, shopping, etc.  Their response was always "this is LA so literally anything goes...BUT, everyone has a leather jacket".  At the time, I didn't really have one that I loved,  so before I came back this week, I invested in this beaut.  (Obviously not only for LA, but it was a  pretty great excuse!)  I love the neutral color and the fit is so perfect.  I love to invest in classic, timeless outerwear that I know I'll enjoy for years to come.  My Burberry Trench, J.Crew Coats, Cashmere Cardigans and now this, make for perfect closet staples!  I also became a tad majorly obsessed with a black All Saints jacket I found while I was in San Diego and HAD to have it.  So needless to say my leather jacket game is strong right now! :)

I made it home early yesterday morning and spent the day catching up on sleep and unpacking.  Then, my family came over for dinner {mexican} and it was so nice to feel back to normal.  I'm so excited about the long weekend, too!  What are y'all's plans for Memorial Day?  We're spending the day in Asheville tomorrow and then having a cookout by the pool with our family + friends on Monday!  Three day weekends are seriously the best!

Denim + Stripes | San Diego, CA


Dress: Lovers + Friends {also love THIS + really want THIS} | Jacket: J.Crew {on sale & perfect for layering!} | Shoes: Valentino | Handbag: Chanel {super similar HERE} | Sunglasses: Cèline | Watch: MK | Bracelets:  David Yurman {onetwothreefour} | Rings: David Yurman {onetwo} | Lips: MAC 'Stripdown' + YSL 'Blankety'

There's nothing I love more than an effortless, casual look for running around town.  And since I'm such a fan of stripes (especially when they're black + white), I had to have this dress!  I thought it would be perfect for the weather we were having in San Diego, since it was in the mid 70's all week and this dress has a thicker, sweater like fabric to it.  (There are so many great similar options right now too, and I linked a couple of my favorites above!)  All in all a super easy look to throw on that still looks chic and put together! #winning

I'm writing this post from the plane and heading home tonight!  I jumped on a red eye out of San Diego and I'm literally about to close my laptop and pass. out.  We had the most amazing week, but now it's time to catch up on some sleep before the weekend!!

I hope you're all having a great week and thanks so much for stopping by! xx.

The Beverly Hills Hotel | Los Angeles, CA

 Top: Keepsake {obsessed, wearing an xs} | Jeans: J Brand | Handbag: Valentino {similar HERE} | Shoes: Chanel {similar HERE} | Earrings: Chanel | Watch: MK | Bracelets:  David Yurman {onetwothreefour} | Rings: David Yurman {onetwo} | Lips: MAC 'Stripdown' + YSL 'Blankety'

Happy Monday, lovelies - 

Let me just start by saying, what. a. weekend.  We had the BEST time in LA and brunching at The Beverly Hills Hotel on Saturday was by far my favorite.  It literally made all of my blush pink dreams come true!!  Everything is pink, palm print and black + white striped and it's just beyond beautiful.   I love the nostalgia of it all too - the old bars inside, knowing that Marilyn Monroe lived there, and seeing a celeb or too brunching beside you is just literally the coolest thing to me.  

I wanted to wear a super feminine outfit to match the pretty decor so lace, ruffles and blush pink seemed super appropriate.  (Not that that's a huge stray from my daily look anyway, ha)  Oh, and remember that time I said I wanted this bag for my birthday?  Well, I couldn't wait another second, it's too beautiful.  Definitely my new favorite!

We're headed to Disney Land today and I couldn't be more excited!  I've never been (I went to Disney World as a child, but never Disney Land), so I can't even wait.  I'll be on the hunt for Ariel and Jasmine immediately.  :)

I hope you all have a great day and thanks so much for stopping by! xx.

My Favorite Blush Dress EVER | Charleston, SC

Dress: Tularosa {top version here + here} | Handbag: Chanel {dupe here} | Shoes: Schutz {the perfect neutral} | Sunglasses: Ray Ban | Hat: Nordstrom {also love this feminine style} | Earrings: Nordstrom | Watch: MK | Bracelets:  David Yurman {onetwothreefour} | Rings: David Yurman {onetwo} | Lips: MAC 'Stripdown' + YSL 'Blankety'

This dress encompasses all of my favorite things: blush, lace, scallops and a feminine fit.  (I styled it when I was in CA, here)  Also, I obviously cannot get enough of this hat!  It has been such a staple for me already and I know I'll get so much use out of it over the next few months, too.  I changed into this look for dinner in Charleston at one of our favorite places and it was so perfect (+ comfortable) for the occasion.  I've always been a dress girl, but in my opinion, this one takes the cake!  Definitely one of my favorite dresses of all time.

I hope you're all having a great week so far!  McKenna and I are having so much fun here in San Diego - beautiful weather, good food, red wine, and as always, constantly laughing.  We're heading to LA today for the weekend and I'm so excited!  There's nothing better than spending time with good friends...and shopping on Rodeo!

Thanks so much for stopping by, xx.
