1. When in doubt, say yes to thick-knit sweaters and high-waisted denim.


2. Pair a colorful striped skirt with a plain white v-neck tee to create a cute and casual outfit that’s perfect for spring!


3. Break all the rules this year by mixing a rainbow stripe sweater with another bold pattern, like leopard print.


4. One of the easiest ways to wear the colorful stripe trend? A vertical striped dress in a flattering fit-and-flare cut.


5. Drape a rainbow striped scarf over your neutral-colored outfit for that coveted pop of color!


6. Upgrade your jeans-and-a-tee look by opting for a colorful striped sweater instead. Half-tuck your sweater to complete this easy, chic look.

February 8th, 2018 by Jennifer Beile Why I Am (Still) Keeping Up With the Kardashians

Yes, they may have oversaturated our media and maybe they’re overrated—but millions of viewers season after season (14 seasons to be exact!) don’t lie: there is something to the Kardashians. And I am not ashamed to admit that I have been one of those people fascinated with them since their first episode aired. The Kardashians are a pop culture phenomenon, but they are also media- and business-savvy people, and I have to admire the control and success that they have had the past decade.


Kylie gave birth to Stormi on February 1st, and in true Kardashian/Jenner fashion, she announced it on one of the biggest days of the year. In some opinions, she “won” the Superbowl.  No, you don’t NEED to know anything about the newest Kardashian baby, but you can’t deny that Kylie’s secretive pregnancy and subsequent birth announcement have been intriguing at the least. Coming from a family that is known for their reality TV antics and frequent gossip magazine covers, can we at least agree it was refreshing that Kylie kept this intimate part of her life private until she felt ready to share it, in her own way?

Said Kylie: “I knew for myself I needed to prepare for this role of a lifetime in the most positive, stress-free, and healthy way I knew how. There was no gotcha moment, no big paid reveal I had planned.”

I dare you not to have all the feels while watching Kylie’s home footage compilation announcement video:

Welcome to the world, Stormi!

February 7th, 2018 by Melanie Sutrathada 6 Cold Weather Accessories to Get You to Spring

We’re in that long final pre-spring stretch, and while you may feel like your only fashion options are a down coat that closely resembles a sleeping bag or a coat that barely keeps you warm, there are still ways to brave the cold while keeping your style! Today, we’re sharing six trendy accessories that will mix things up until that glorious spring thaw.

Scroll on to see which accessories you should have on hand:


When it comes to the chilly weather, a faux fur vest will always be in style.


I can’t count how many times I’ve reached for a scarf to add that extra bit of flair to my outfit during winter. Anyone else like their scarves the same way they like their peanut butter? (…Chunky!)


While baker hats and dad hats might be trending this season, they won’t keep you as warm as a beanie can!


Don’t underestimate the power of earmuffs! Skip the plain black ones and opt for a pair with a faux fur finish to stay stylish on the go.


Pick up a sleek pair of gloves that have touchscreen capabilities, and you’ve scored yourself a win-win purchase.


Leave it to Rach Parcell, the blogger behind Pink Peonies, to make these cream white legwarmers a chic focal point of her winter outfit.

February 7th, 2018 by Mary Elizabeth OOTD: How to Wear a Cropped Sweater

Hey everyone!  Mary Elizabeth back again with an all new post featuring my ultra-coveted, I-don’t-know-what-I-ever-did-before-you Zara cropped sweater.  This top manages to be ultra flattering, super swingy and beyond comfy—a winning trifecta!

This sweater is the one you reach for again and again.  It’s perfectly neutral so you can wear it anytime, anywhere and dress it up or down. It’s perfect for everything from balmy evenings to actual winter.  It has the sweetest little scallop detail and looks fire with 501s—in a way that even your backside will thank you!  Best of all, no one knows you tried because you didn’t really.  Your sweater is just that good.

I found this little lover at the Santa Monica Crossroads, and it was love at first sight.  I’m not gonna lie; my daily wardrobe predominately consists of  black, white, grey, denim, and leopard… or as I like to call it, khaki of the jungle.  When this little baby came along, it combined all my neutral sensibilities but with a little girly flair that I love so much.

Today, I layered it over a summer-y maxi to “winterize” my dress (I’m in LA, okay!).  I threw on my Vans and beret and was out the door.  Easy peasy.
