About a week ago, I showed you how I styled my favorite go-to skinny jeans in this post… kinda easy breezy with classic pieces like a white button up + oxfords.

For this week, I’m showing you how I styled this relaxed fit boyfriend jeans from Citizens of Humanity via Nordstrom. I always change between skinny and boyfriend because for me, they’re the most versatile kinda jeans to have. These boyfriend ones sit right on my hip so the slouchiness is extra comfy, which I love.

A little stripe top, pumps and pop of color never fails to make any boyfriend jeans look good… yes, even if your own boyfriends hates them.

Loving all the new stuff Nordstrom currently carries, with the hottest trends to carrying classic pieces too. Their denim selection however is my favorite because its a wide variety of styles and they have some of the best brands, you can’t beat that!

Don’t forget to pick up your favorite pair… especially since fall season is already here!

London with French Connection.

frenchconnectioncover

London is one of my favorite cities- the street style, the hustle & bustle, the proper way of speaking english, the double-decker buses, the bright red phone booths, fish & chips, I mean, how could it not be a favorite?

So I was excited to find out I would be traveling to London with one of my favorite brands, French Connection. I’ve always loved everything that they’ve carried from clothing, shoes to accessories and even house ware. I always end up finding the cutest pieces that are versatile yet fun, like this white sweater I got a couple of months ago.

I did a lot of sightseeing, tons of picture taking and grubbed on too much fish & chips but I felt very British by the time we had to close out our trip which was great. The most exciting part about my trip was getting to hang with the French Connection team, checking out their new fall collection and getting to attend their A/W ’14 Campaign press preview launch party! It was all sorts of fun; with the theme being magic, rabbits, and one of London’s biggest magicians, Troy Von Scheibner.

Here’s a small diary of what my trip looked with French Connection! Hope you enjoy the photos as much as I enjoyed being there!

Special thank you to French Connection for having me! xo

Gift Ideas with MK.

Since the holidays are literally around the corner, (where has time gone?) it’s time to really start thinking about gifts! As much as I love the holidays, I know it can get stressful  buying nice gifts for loved ones. The easiest thing to do is to make a list, give yourself a budget for each person and buy things you personally love.

Always splurge on the most important people- mom, dad, sister, brother. When I mean splurge, I mean like a nice watch,  a necklace they’ll be able to wear everyday, a fancy wallet (a wallet + watch says a lot about a person, so I always like to give those as gifts), just to name a few. Below are some of my picks to give as gifts.. can’t wait to start the holiday shopping!

Check out my other favorite picks over at Michael Kors… I can pretty much check off all the important women in my life from these picks! Score!

As part of their gift, I always try to give my sisters a watch every year. These are perfect as they’re classic yet feminine.
