look of the day

OOTD: Travel Chic (Day 1 in Madrid)

I was late getting out of my house to get to the airport. A few minutes down the road I realized I left my sunglasses. After going back to get them and heading back out, I realized I left my charger. Luckily, I made it to the airport in time. Just in time to find out that my flight to NY was delayed. It was so delayed that I almost missed my connecting flight to Spain. I literally hyperventilated, almost cried and then had to get ushered through the long ass security line and escorted to my terminal. To those of you that know me, this will come as no surprise…and almost expected.

Note: If you ever have the chance to fly Iberia, do it. I got the warmest greeting in Spanish as I walked onto the plane and I was immediately put at ease with the lounge music playing in the background. The seats were comfortable, the amenities were great and everyone looked happy…my kinda vibe.

I arrived in Madrid, Spain the next morning and met up with my girlfriend who is currently living there. I had some time to decompress at her house before changing clothes and heading out to explore the city. I threw on a pair of harem pants (designed by my beautiful friend, Tania in Los Angeles), a grey tank, leather jacket, leather hat and my chucks. Super comfy yet chic. Or maybe I should say super comfy to a point. By the end of the day, my feet were pretty cut up. Blister Nation. I actually spent the whole 2 weeks of my vacation with at least 4 band-aids on at all times. Word of advice: Chucks aren’t made for walking (not for my feet anyways). If you’re going to be spending long days walking and wandering around somewhere, then I would absolutely suggest packing or buying a pair of actual walking shoes. You probably already know this tho. I’ve never walked so much in my entire life…so, lesson learned. P.S. I’m obsessed with doors now.

Fringe Benefits

Neon fringe skirt & cream knit sweater

IMG_0963

IMG_0962This neon pink, fringe skirt is one of those things that you’re drawn to and kinda like but never buy because you have absolutely no clue how you would wear it. Well, let me help you:

1. Wear it like me – Pair it with a cream colored loose knit top and some tan platform ankle boots. Make it fun by adding a pair of blue mirror lenses. Complete the look with unwashed hair thrown up into a messy bun.
2. Wear it like a rockstar – Throw on your favorite band tee, a few silver necklaces and a leather jacket. Wear it with some badass ankle boots and finish it off with a smokey cat eye and nude lip.
3. Wear it like an Orange County girl – Choose a sexy white top that’s low cut…maybe even backless. Wear it with a gold belt and your favorite nude Louboutins. Top off the look with some gold jewelry, a Louis Vuitton bag, hair extensions and fake eyelashes.

There you have it…no excuses…buy that statement skirt.

City Of Devils

IMG_6840 IMG_6848IMG_6824IMG_6845IMG_6880IMG_6882Love them or hate them, garter leggings are a major trend right now amongst those who dare. At first, I thought they were a pretty cool concept and something different but I wasn’t entirely sure if I would wear them. I thought they were only for skinny girls with minimal curves since something this sexy could potentially look vulgar on someone with curves. Well, I’m no scaredy cat when it comes to fashion so I gave it a whirl.

I gotta say, these particular leggings are so insanely comfortable! Some styles of garter leggings are cut very high (which I don’t like on me) but this style is cut lower so there’s more coverage. To tone down the sexiness of the leggings, I paired it with a loose fitting t-shirt by Naive Nation, a lightweight faux fur coat and my new favorite platform boots.
