My OOTD! It was sooo so cold I actually have a second long sleeved tight sweater on under this one, which made me so toasty. Today was my long monday, I have senior seminar monday nights. Senior sem is so long, and so annoying, and I need to ace it to graduate which makes my mondays hell. But thank god it’s almost over (to college students: yes, it ends eventually)

Top: Homme Femme LA

Bottoms: Gap (They’re “Waxed” so they look leathery and they’re warmer!)

Sneakers: Air Jordan Steel 10’s

Bracelets: BCBG, Urban Outfitters

Necklace: H&M

And I felt a little cold coming on this morning, so I threw on a beanie (from Forever 21) which always makes me feel a little warmer.

If you guys haven’t noticed by now, I love making comfort look fashionable. Like is it so hard for designers to put more elastic and pockets into things? But I had my second to last long monday today, so excited that classes are almost over!

Top: Madewell

Undershirt: Victoria’s Secret, Pink

Pants: Free People

Shoes: Urban Outfitters

Watch: Urban Outfitters

And I had no time for my hair today, so I just did a high pony tail and voila!


urban oasis.

Perhaps we really REALLY miss Palm Springs and we’re channeling some of that amazing ambiance right here in the heart of Orange County.  Located right across the street from South Coast Plaza is a lovely tranquil sculpture garden by Isamu Noguchi that we highly recommend you visit.  Perhaps after your credit cards needs a breather from all that shopping?

This week we’re showing off the BEAUTIFUL design of a couple of our favorite new finds in this urban oasis.  First up is quite possibly the coolest backpack we’ve seen in some time by Band of Players.  The rectangular design, navy leather and silver accents make this a modern, fresh choice for the of-the-moment bag.

Now we know what you’re thinking: “Leather for Spring??”  And we say: “YESSS!”  Gone are the days of strict fashion rules you must adhere to lest you fall prey to the fashion police.  Your favorite textiles are viable year round given the right cut and styling.  Here Amen Couture has made a brown leather pleated skirt that is as amazing to touch as it is to see.  (Look at it twirl!)

And if you’re jonesing for Palm Springs like us… make sure to get your tickets for Coachella on sale now!
