As soon as I got back from Morocco, I was excited to finally be home and start wearing pieces that are more “me”… as in beanies, skinny jeans, blazers, leather jackets… you know, that Westcoast style that best defines me? Well, as I got settled into my day-to-day routines back in Los Angeles after traveling for almost two weeks, I jumped at getting dressed in what finally felt like fall in LA to hang with my parents and catch up over lunch.
Since the weather was a bit gloomy and chilly, I threw on a super minimal look that not only could transition from day-to-night, but made me feel completely cool too! One of my favorite pieces is this heather gray sweatshirt that is 100% cotton- big high-five for The Fabric of Our Lives! Cotton is one of those fibers that I really look for when purchasing certain pieces of clothing- it’s versatile, long-lasting and easy to work with.
The sweater is by far one of my favorite (and prized) items in my closet- I love dressing up the sweater with pretty fancy skirts and heels for a glam look too!
So, since I like to incorporate cotton into my looks.. I’d love to see how you incorporate cotton into your style! So make sure to go have your picture taken by the amazing Style Search Squad in a city near you or you can upload a photo to be entered everyday! I’m kinda jealous that each week you can win $1,440 just by submitting your cotton style shots online! Ah!
I’m excited to have Cotton’s Style Search Squad come to my region (West) in a couple of weeks (the first week of Decemember!) to snap some stylish Californians! I will be hanging with them so make sure to come out to have us take your photo! Remember, the grand prize for one lucky winner from each of the six regions is a dream package- $2,500 and a VIP trip to Cotton’s 24 Hour Runway Show in South Beach.. so hurry and start uploading! Good luck!

Tote: from hotel
For our second day in beautiful Oualidia, we spent the day having a marvelous lunch by the sea where we enjoyed the scenic view, cool brisk and cool water. 
We talked for hours as we enjoyed each others company and view. After lunch, we decided to take a little break and do our own thing… I took a small nap because I felt I hadn’t gotten enough
 rest since NYC. After a couple hours passed, we met up at 4pm for a boat ride! It was the cutest little ride- our guide showed us around the lagoon where we got to see the old castle of the Royals!

Definitely one of my highlights of oualidia- oh and of course all the yummy food!
