Hi guys! Super quick post today- just wanted to do a round up of all my favorite cozy sweaters and liquid leggings as that has so been my uniform these past couple of weeks in these super cold temps! I just find this combo to be so comfy, but still so chic. Plus when the weather acts up (rain or snow) these are so fab as they kinda almost repel the water (versus soggy jeans!) The ones I am wearing in the pic from instagram are these (also shown below).

Hope you are all having a good week so far! Mine is fab as I am feeling all sorts of motivated and energized for some reason. Happy Tuesday!

HAPPY FRIDAY!! WOOHOO, so glad it’s the weekend! I have been keeping way busy this week and am looking forward to sleeping in tomorrow! I am off to shoot some looks today down in San Diego, which I am tre excited about!

Today I am all about this amazing Topshop faux fur leopard bomber and my obsession with brooches. Let’s start with this amazing cozy jacket. I found this fabness by accident when I was out holiday shopping early in December. I couldn’t not have it (right?!) It’s just perfectly oversized and the mix colors is SO fun. I love to wear it with a simple tee + denim or a black sweater + a blue jean skirt as it’s a total pop of fun.

For this look, I paired it with this simple tan sweater and super fun black denim mini (here too) (I wear this thing allll the time!!) Since the bomber is so full of personality I kept these other pieces really minimal.

To spice up the look a tad, I pinned my Chanel brooch (vintage here and here) onto the pocket of my skirt. I do not even know what sparked this newfound self made trend, but I have been doing it nonstop! I just think it’s such a fun way to give your look a little oomph! I have been really into layering many on the lapel of my coats or boring sweaters. Embellishing DIY if you will!

Since it’s pretty chilly out, had to go with my Stuart Weitzman otk boots to keep warm. If you are still pondering these, just go for it! They are so worth it. For sunnies, I was feeling these newish (another current obsession) ray-bans. The gold GG on this Gucci crossbody seemed to be the last perfect pop of fun for this already super loud and wild look! (my circle ring)

Well I hope you all have a really great Friday! So crazy to think it’s already the middle of January! I am so excited to go to some yummy dinners and relax some this weekend. Hope you all do too!

Happy Thursday, friends! How are you guys? I am fab even though it has been a total and complete rainy mess here all week! If you know me, I DO NOT do rain. I am the biggest baby about it as it does nothing but ruin a good outfit and my hair (haha, so dramatic!) It’s supposed to clear out by tomorrow thank goodness!    

Today I am discussing my current love for all things high neck, high waisted and modern plaid. Three totally unrelated trends that I paired together in this look! Let’s start with this keyhole blouse (also here) from Tularosa. How fun? In these colder months when I am forced to wear jeans (I am such a dress, shorts + skirt girl), I am all about a feminine and cute top. The high neck trend is so fab because it’s easy to pull off + I think it really exudes some chicness. Most versions that are out right now have a fun keyhole (like this one) or plunge a bit, so it keeps it spicy!

I wear these high waisted Paige skinnies atleast once a week. They are beyond comfy and I love the distressing on the knees. I love wearing a simple bodysuit or tee with these, but also love love going with a really fun blouse (like this one) for a night out. Since it’s totally cold out, I had to grab a jacket to finish off this look. I have been so into bigger check detailing lately as it’s such a modern version of plaid.  This Astr coat (also here) is a dream! It’s snuggly and warm and just the perfect pop of fun for any look. Plus, you cannot beat the fact that it’s camel and black (another one of my favorite trends right now). And as far as normal coats go, it’s priced pretty well at $168. I pinned on my Chanel brooch to the pocket to add a touch of fun (here and here are some vintage versions)

For shoes, these velvet Joie booties have been on heavy rotation lately as they are just so fun. They hit right at the ankle, which I love. For bag, I kept it simple with my quilted Chanel and my oversized Karen Walkers seemed the perfect way to finish off this fun look. (my circle ring)

Don’t be afraid to try out a fun high neck top- I promise anyone can wear it and it always looks fab! Here are some other similar tops, denim and jackets that I am loving:

Hope you guys are all having a good week so far! And if you live in SoCal (or really anywhere in America) I hope you are staying warm and safe! One more day till the weekend! Woohoo!

Hey hey it’s Friday!! Woohoo, we survived the first week back to reality (barely!) So I was trying to be so good and not drink all week (after the holiday madness), but ended up dinnering with some girls I love and had some wine last night…oops! But in all honesty, instead of going all health crazed like everyone else in January, I am just trying to live life to the fullest!

Today is all about mixing navy and grey (and of course having a pop of fun with these most fabulous sparkly boots). I have always had a thing for the color navy as I think its a great change up from boring black. I love mixing it with black actually, but I also really loving combing it with grey tones. They just work really well together and have just the right amount of contrast. This moto, from BCBGeneration, is super luxe and so fun to pair with a tee/jeans, over a dress to edge it up or over a sweater/leggings. The navy gives it a more feminine feel which I love.

For this look, I paired it with this gorgeous floral blouse from We are Kindred. I am love love the ruffle detailing on this top! So super feminine. You could wear this with a fun silver or navy pleated maxi skirt or a tan corduroy mini. I just loved how the colors popped with the navy suede. For denim, I went with these from Paige as I love the cropped + frayed hemline.

Since the jeans are clearly made to show off shoes, I had to step up my game and went with these totally fabulous and amazing Saint Laurent booties. Ahhh you guys!! I am OBSESSED with these and honestly wear them all the time. When I first bought them my husband actually commented on how ridiculous they were and how I would so never wear them…well to his surprise (and honestly mine!) I have worn them probably 20 times since getting them! With jean skirts, with leggings, with tights and jean shorts and I even wore them on NYE with a star adorned mini dress + liquid leggings (it was raining or I would have obvie gone bare legged!) They are basically sold out, but there are so many similar options that I linked below. I promise if you get a pair you wont be disappointed in the wearability!

For sunnies, I had to go with these from Miu Miu as they are perfectly grey and have another touch of sparkle. For bag, my small sac de jour from Saint Laurent was the perfect option. I just love this look as I feel like its so easy and wearable. To me, nothing beats a super feminine top, some great denim, a little pop of fun and an edgy jacket.

Here are some more navy jackets (and one grey because its super fab!) and metallic booties:

Wishing you all the most fab first weekend in the new year! I hope it’s filled with fun and lots of living in the moment! We have a standard date night tonight at Bandera and then a double dater at a yummy Mexican spot tomorrow.

Happy shopping and weekend, xo, Caro

Hi guys! Happy Wednesday! Anyone else TOTALLY struggling to get back in the groove of life post holidays? I swear my brain turned to total mush over the break. My birthday/NYE was a complete dream of a night with my college besties, but it was also the icing on the cake as far as being in total vacay mode. January is such a good time to reflect and reset, so I am going to try to get on that stat!!  

Today is all about my current love for anything (and everything) with stars as well as anything (and everything) furry. Two huge trends right now that I decided to combine in one look! This starry button down from Equipment has been on heavy rotation lately as it’s just so cute and such a great, classic fit. I love the mini white stars (it comes in a white with black stars variation too) as they are just a perfect little pop of fun. I was at South Coast yesterday and saw literally 5 versions of this same shirt from different brands, so I will link those below as they are all different price points.

Now onto this fun and super cozy furry jacket. This one is by Free People and is sadly sold out everywhere, but here and here are two super similar options. (Sidenote: I hate when items I fall in love with sell out before I even get to blog about them, but this one came out before the holidays so I think that killed it’s availability) I am so all about this fun burgundy color! I adore that you can wear it with black and brown and that it looks super good with both! Obviously this furry jacket thing is a big trend right now, but I really think it will stick around for a bit and I think it’s a great way to stay warm and look stylish.

I paired these two fun pieces with my other most favorite item in closet right now, a denim skirt. You guys, I cannot stop wearing them!! This one in particular (that I have so already worn in a post (obsessed)) from Grlfrnd Denim is seriously just perfection!! The fit is kinda A-line which I love and it’s just a really great color/shape/style. There are so many others out right now, so I will include them in my links below. You can add tights for cooler days or pair them with boots like I did. I went with these from Stuart Weitzman, but any otk boot would look fab!

For sunnies I went with these new faves from Rayban. Totally have a major moment over this super round style! I don’t know what it is, but I am in love! For bag, my GG chain wallet was the simple + perfect option. If you are eyeing any of the marmont collection, I highly suggest this fun size as it’s so easy for daytime running around or a night out. It has a built in wallet, which I love! Last but not least, here is my super super fun leopard strap watch. I wear this with everything and love that it’s like a fun bracelet & a watch in one!

Here are some more starry tops and fun denim skirts:

I hope you are all having a good week and are having an easier time getting back in your groove than I am! Happy shopping!
