lovers + friends




Fur outerwear has been a go-to of mine lately since the El Nino rain hasn't been living up to its threats but the chill is still happening. This teddy bear madness is thanks to Lovers + Friends and is just amazing. Completely cozy and soft, it definitely has a lux feel that I like dressing down with Lovers + Friends ripped denim - which is the perfect pair of jeans. I love the fit and all the ripped little details.

over the knee boots


My over-the-knee boots or otk boots obsession is real. I've wanting to style them with any and every outfit possible since it has a put-together vibe given the right combo. I like dressed down looks to balance out the vibe.

T3 twirl convertible curling iron



If there's a hair tool that I depend on consistently, it would be the T3 styling wand. Complete with Tourmaline Single Pass technology and hands down the best curling iron to create curls or waves. I love this particular curling iron because it has interchangeable barrels. I use a 1.25 inch barrel to create my curls but there's other barrel sizes including a 1-inch and a 1 1/4 - 3/4 tapered barrel for beachy waves. 

To create my curls, I first spray my hair with a wax spray. It holds better than hairspray. Then I start on my left side with 1-inch locks and curl clockwise, careful to evenly space my hair on the barrel so the curls have a nice spiral. I have a lot of hair so I separate my layers to curl. Once I finish the left side, I do the same on the right side except I curl counterclockwise. 

The best part about the T3 - my hair is even better the second day after the curls loosen up. I usually just touch up the front pieces.

cottonhood


The weather is currently on the chilly side which is perfect for layering pieces like this hoodie from Cottonhood with my fav leather jacket. It's a nice and cozy casual look only made more perfect with the jeweled bandana scarf from Julia Vaughn. This season definitely has be layering outerwear and adding scarves to every outfit.

silk coat


My coat collection is just getting better and better, particularly the grey section. I love this lightweight grey number from Silk NY. It's made for slightly chilly winter days in California especially when paired with a scarf and this scarf from Spratters & Jayne is the perfect chunky creation. It's handmade and and super plush. Makes me want to get cozy all day. 



Outfit: Silk NY coat | Spratters & Jayne scarf | Alexander Wang prisma bag | Isabel Marant boots | Zara pants 



















ayr | turtleneck


Lately I'm obsessed with wearing turtlenecks. They are suddenly so chic again like this one from AYR.  Navy and super soft, it's perfect for wintery outfits of leather pants and coats. Basically, my uniform. AYR has all sorts of cozy sweaters and turtlenecks that my wardrobe needs to get through this El Nino season.

I've also pulled out the knee-high boots and have basically been living in them which makes me want over -the-knee boots. 


Outfit: AYR turtleneck | BlankNYC pants | Cmeo coat | GM2NY clutch | Crimson Kingdom bangle

stylestalker | spotlight coat


My love for gridlines is real. This is my second coat with gridline patterns but they are so different! Seriously! I love this Stylestalker version with slightly thicker lines for a stronger vibe. I love how it looks with all black everything or in this case, mixed with some denim.
