Floral Affair.

FLORALAFFAIR1

This pretty little flowy floral dress was the right item to make me feel pretty. Who says you can’t wear floral print during the holidays? The key to that is to add fun details to make it have a “festive” feel. Instead of over-the-knee boots, I opted for a cool pair of metallic oxfords for an unexpected touch. A cozy beanie added that fall/wintery vibe too!

So many flowy dresses to choose from during the holidays so I make sure to stick to brands that I love like Free People at Nordstrom. From high end bags to more inexpensive ones, or from accessories to home goods, I know I can always rely on nordstrom to find exactly what I’m looking for.

I love this dress and already have3 other ways I can wear it: long cardigan and over-the-knee boots, denim jacket paired with all-star converse high top in black,  or a fedora hat and suede brown booties! So versatile!

Don’t be afraid to mix things up by adding some metallic- it gives it that extra pop!

These metallic shoes are so different for me, but I loved that I got out of my comfort zone  for this purchase!

I love that the weather in LA dropped drastically because now that means I can finally wear big, cozy, oversized cardigans, wrap my neck with scarves and wear all types of boots.

I’ve been on the hunt for oversized cardigans like this amazing chunky Free People one I picked up at Nordstrom to get me through the fall and holiday season. Since the weather in LA doesn’t really require us to wear big coats/jackets because it’s not that cold (thank goodness!!), having the right turtle neck sweaters and oversized cardigans is definitely key to stay warm. I love that I can find so many options and brands I love like Free People at Nordstrom to help with all my fashion needs.

A one-stop shop to pick up all my favorite brands is important to me because one thing I don’t have is time. Having everything I’m looking for and love under one umbrella is a life & time saver!

Are you guys all about big oversized cardigans? If so, how do you style them? Share!

I love the oversized cardi paired with the over-the-knee-boots. It gives it such a eye-catching look!

Wrap around a scarf a bunch of times for a cozier look.

Tuck in your tee so that it looks a bit more polished plus so that proportions balance off each other.

Such staple boots! Never been too much of a over-the-knee fan, but these were too good to be passed up. They’re beyond comfortable and they look great with dresses/skirts! They come in various colors which makes it fun!

Spring in Winter.

One of my absolute favorite things I like to do is visit the flower market once (or even twice) a week to pick up fresh flowers. I like to go early in the morning, around 7-7:30 am, to beat the crowd around 10 but really to get the best flowers.

The L.A. flower district in downtown is the best place to get flowers at such an inexpensive price plus it’s such a treat being surrounded by so many pretty little flowers… it’s always an instagram moment for me! It might be a little overwhelming when you first visit because there’s dozens & dozens of vendors but if you go often, like I do, you’ll quickly learn who the best vendors are. Trust, you won’t be disappointed.

Tips (to visiting the flower district/market)

  • Arrive early (anywhere between 7:00-8:30am). You’ll avoid big crowds, not finding parking and best of all, you’ll get first dibs on picking the freshest flowers!
  • Have a checklist of the flowers you’re looking for. Otherwise, you’ll waste time going around in circles.
  • Have cash. Most of these vendors only take cash so come cash ready. Don’t fret, there’s usually an ATM machine outside but I wouldn’t rely on them as they often are out of service. So come prepared with cash.
  • Wear flat shoes. Try avoiding wearing heels as the floors tend to be slippery because it’s wet. You don’t want to slip and fall.
  • Lastly, bring a little cart with wheels (if you’re buying a lot of flowers) or a bag like the one I’m wearing in this post, a tote bag works too. This will come in handy to put the flowers in. Before I learned to bring a bag, I used to go without one and boy did I struggle. I would buy between 3-5 bundles of flowers and would have to carry them in my hand making it hard to check out anything else.
  • One last tip…. take photos! They make the prettiest photos!

Making flower arrangements is definitely one of my hobbies. It helps me feel inspired and keeps me calm if I’m feeling stressed out. I’m really considering opening a cute little flower shop in the future… I’m dreaming BIG!
