Minutes after these photos were taken, it started hailing! We had just finished taking two car loads over to the new apartment and were leaving when we had to run through the rain and hail. There is something magical about a clear, blue sky closing up for a downpour! Luckily, we had plans for brunch and catching up on Saturday Night Live for the rest of the afternoon. I am so in love with rainy days.

Speaking of being in love, I might be the only one, but I am in love with this shaggy carpet of a jacket. True story, I did refer to this jacket to explain what kind of area rug I would love to have in our new bedroom.

Our moving process is coming along, slowly but surely. We have almost three weeks of overlap on the two apartments, which my bank account is hating rent wise, but is actually really great regarding the physical moving. We are doing it alone, because let’s be honest, no one wants to help their friends move and we would like to stay within the good graces of our small, but amazing, group of friends. So little by little, we have been carrying boxes and bags down two flights of stairs and filling up our cars for the one mile drive over to the new apartment. We are hoping to be completely moved in at the end of next weekend. Then the dreaded unpacking begins!

So I am going to take advantage of this cooler weather here in LA and go find as many outfits as possible to add this coat too. The more people question my sanity when they see me wear it, the deeper in love I fall!

Happy Friday!

I am going into this weekend with a new apartment, new position at work, and plans to see all my favorite people!

I am going to attempt this Friday Favorites thing I used to do back in the day, but a bit differently than before. Here’s a round up of everything that entertained me this week.

Enjoy!

  • Christina Aguilera slays with a Britney Spears impersonation on The Tonight Show. The whole segment is worth watching but the Britney impression begins at 1:45. Check it out here.
  • Speaking of Christina Aguilera, Ed Sheeran proves, once again, that he is the shit by covering “Dirrty”.
  • Bill Murray is quite possibly one of the most interesting people in the world. So interesting, the only way to get a hold of him is a 1-800 number. Read about what it is like to cast Bill Murray here.
  • In fact, you should just read this entire web site full of Bill Murray run ins, here.
  • An instant camera case for smartphones. YES, PLEASE.
  • Even though I did not think this last season was the best, I will be missing Parks & Rec for these reasons, and more.
  • Sweet, sweet music to my ears. You will want to hear this Ed Sheeran and Sam Smith mash up.
  • I’ve never seen a bad installment of Jimmy Kimmels’ “Lie Witness News”. This Oscar version is hilarious!
  • Who else is excited that Kelly Clarkson finally back on the music scene?? She has been linking to new music via Twitter all week!
  • Is it considered a guilty pleasure to enjoy Teen Mom if you’re not ashamed about it? The original teen moms are back next month! Check out the new season’s trailer here.
  • If you enjoy puns and grammar, you’ll enjoy this.
  • And finally, some babies look like old men and it’s the most endearing thing ever. Add captions, and it’s the funniest thing ever.

Alright, it did not rain today, but the day I took these photos it sure did! Dare I say that it has been a bit chilly the last week or so in LA? I better not be jinxing it! I’ve been cuddled up in sweaters and blankets for the past few days, soaking in the rain and gray skies. Let’s be clear: “chilly” in LA is anything under 70. I know, we suck. To be fair, I would rather have cold weather in the winter. That makes you hate me more, right?

Besides weather, other things that are currently making me happy: work possibilites, “Spring” cleaning, and our new apartment. Yes, we found a new apartment and it is impossibly adorable! We get the keys this weekend and will have a couple of weeks for the moving process. I have been spending too much time on Pinterest for decor inspiration; We are planning on starting over and really making this place a home.

What are your favorite home decor inspiration sites?

I have some super cool news: I am now a Crossroads Trading Co blog contributor! My posts for Crossroads will differ from my posts here. While I will still be writing about fashion and lifestyle, I will be sharing my favorite finds of the week, instead of focusing on my own personal style.

This is a completely unreleated photo that conveys how excited I am to further my Crossroads Trading Co involvement!

Happy Monday!

I am still working on eating my way through the pound of chocolates from Valentine’s Day and I am so fine with that! We had a very simple date night, including dinner at one of our favorite restaurants, Mud Hen Tavern, which is owned by Top Chef Master Susan Feniger, who is such a sweetheart and often brings out the food herself and will take the time to talk to you and thank you for coming. If you’re in the Los Angeles area, please go there and order the kaya toast. There’s nothing more you will need in your life. After dinner, we went to see Meiko at Hotel Cafe in Hollywood, which is the perfect venue; very small and intimate. It’s a wonderful place to discover new music. Although it was a short show, I had not seen her perform in a few years and was very excited to see her announce the last minute show! She just released a new EP that I very much recommend if you enjoy the singer songwriter sound.

Oh the wrinkles! The dreaded wrinkles! I thought about ironing the dress before we went out for Valentine’s Day, and decided since it would wrinkle right back up the second I sat in the car, it was not worth my time. I apologize to those offended by wrinkles; I’m just lazy! they just do not bother me as much.

Speaking of the only thing needed in life: shift dresses. Give me a drapey dress, with no cling or shape, and I am a happy girl. A lazy, comfortable, happy girl!

You know when you buy a pair of pants or a dress that does not quite fit and you use them for motivation or nspiration? Not that I do that, obviously. That would be silly. But, let’s say I did. Is it a faux pas to admit it? Not that it’s true, but if it was, would it make me superficial and silly, or overzealous?

Not that it matters because these faux leather pants were definitely not that kind of purchase.

How terrible am I at trying to come across sarcastic in print? I found these babies at Crossroads in Portland, OR on the last day of our honeymoon. Did I ever mention the we drove passed a Crossroads on the way to the airport and I absolutely had I stop in, which made it necessary to run to our gate? I take my shopping seriously. Like all recycled clothing stores, there were only one pair and I was too in love to leave them behind. Luckily, since the honeymoon bloat melted off, I can now get them on!

So, the answer is superficial right?

I cannot believe I have finally bought a new purse. I cannot remember the last time I bought a new purse; I usually take old ones from my mom or sister. I needed a bigger bag and bigger it is indeed. Another confession: I wanted a larger bag partly because I wanted to be able to take my selfie stick with me everywhere. Judge away, but you will never know how handy or fun a selfie stick is unitl you use one!

I used my day off yesterday wisely by meeting the husband for a lunch date!

Speaking of dates, what is everyone’s opinion on Valentine’s Day? I’m neutral. I don’t need a big hoopla for it. I would rather be surprised with something on a “normal” day, but I am excited to dress up a little and go to dinner with my Husband!

I did it! I chopped it off!

I went to LuxeLab in Bel Air, California and the lovely Lisa cut my hair. I worked with Lisa on several ModCloth shoots and when I first starting thinking of cutting my hair, her and her twin sister, Chrissy, were one of things that helped me push myself to do it. They know my hair and I’ve followed their work on their Instagrams since I met them (Lisa here, and Chrissy here). They are the best hair and makeup team out there! I almost flew them up to Sacramento for my wedding, but they were booked already! If you are in the Los Angeles area and need a hair and makeup team, I gaurentee that you cannot go wrong with Lisa and Chrissy! Check out more of their work here!

Here are a few too many selfies of my new cut!

p.s. This hair cut and post were not sponsored at all. In fact, the girls have no idea how much praise I just threw out there.

p.p.s. Just as a reminder of my hair before if you don’t feel like going through older posts, here is a super crappy quality before photo (courtesy of my scratched up iPhone 4s camera).
