How to Accessorize for New Year's Eve

Don't we all want to look glamorous when kissing the old year good bye and welcoming the new year? New Year's eve parties are about dressing up and looking like a million bucks, but that doesn't necessarily mean you have to spend a ton of money because you can jazz up your look with gorgeous accessories! 

When planning my NYE outfits I always tend to add sparkly and metallic like these gorgeous pieces from Morana. Morana is an online shop with gorgeous fashion jewelry and accessories that are great for all occasions. I broke it down to my two favorite looks: gold and silver tones!

Goal Setting Giveaway (valued over $75!)

 One of my favorite parts of the New Year is goal setting and starting a year fresh and reinvigorated!

As I purchased my goal setting supplies for the upcoming year, I decided to buy some additional items to create this adorable giveaway for one of you!

Festive Casual

My Cyber Monday purchases finally arrived! Yup, a couple of weeks later but that's the price to pay for a darn good deal. Among my purchases, a festive plaid scarf that had been on my shopping list all season. I feel like it is a piece I can put away with the Christmas decor and pull it out every year thereafter and it will still be in style. This outfit is perfect for a casual Christmas eve with the family...

Working out with Superdry

With the new year just a couple of weeks away, why not get a head start on that fitness resolution in style? Today I'm sharing with you one of my fave brands to wear during my new go-to  Fall work out- evening jogs. I've recently discovered Superdry's sportswear collection, composed of really cool and fashionable attire to break a sweat in. The Superdry gym running zip hoodie has been a savior for me when I go running in this cold San Diego weather because it's thick, has a warm later inside and a warm hoodie (I literally wear the hoodie over my head as I run and it keeps me from freezing my ears off).

Houndstooth Cape-Poncho

My love for capes and ponchos continue and this time with a piece that is a hybrid of both- this Houndstooth assymetric coat from SheIn. The material is so thick and cozy, at less than $25 it's a steal (I would just recommend to size down).

For all of the Holiday parties I have on the calendar, this look is perfect for the office holiday party, mainly because it's a conservative/covered up look. As I mentioned before, the red lip adds an instant touch of festivity to a look- so have that a red lip on-hand ladies! Hope you are all enjoying this Holiday season!

Chic Holiday Shopping Outfit ft. The Headquarters

The Holiday season is here and although the Christmas shopping can be overwhelming there is a silver lining: a cute shopping outfit and Christmas Décor. As I mentioned in this post, The Headquarters is such a cool place where you can shop, dine, and be surrounded with beautiful scenery! I’m not only talking about the bay just a few steps away, but also the awesome décor to get you in the Christmas spirit.

Xmas Tree Shopping & Cyber Monday Guide!

The husband and I officially kicked off our Christmas 2015 season by picking up our Christmas Tree yesterday! I can't believe this big year for us is coming to an end! We had been doing errands earlier in the day so comfort was a must, however it was super easy to add a festive touch with rep lipstick and a plaid scarf!

Thanksgiving Outfit ft. The Headquarters

With Thanksgiving just a few days away, today's post brings you 1. a cozy outfit idea, and 2. for all of you San Diego locals or future visitors, a cool place in San Diego where you can both sight-see and shop!

Planning my Thanksgiving outfit involves preparation for staying stylish and comfortable while my belly is expanding from all that food (afterall, I have three family dinners to go to). Even though I'm wearing skinny jeans, they are almost jegging style with some stretch to it. Worse comes to worse, if the top button need be unbuttoned, the awesome tunic and vest will hide all of that *wua ha ha*

Fall Babydoll

Today is a quick little outfit I put together on Saturday to attend a blogger pampering session at Aveda (thanks to Jenna from Lucky Little Mustardseed) and then to a friend's baby shower. I love that I could wear the outfit to both totally different events since it was comfy and perfect for Fall. Plus, I can't rave enough about these booties!

Pastel Moto Jacket

Now that the weather in San Diego has committed to Fall, I can talk freely about Fall outerwear (yippee!) As seen in my recent blog posts, I have been cozying up to ponchos, faux fur and trench coats but today I’m finally rocking the oh so cool moto jacket. This one in particular from the LC LaurenConrad Runway collection (which I was so impressed by) is a “dusty rose” color which gives that girly meets edgy vibe. Today I’m more on the casual side (with the mandatory red cup), but I can see this jacket bringing a dash of edge to some of the more feminine dresses in my closet.

Over the Top Statement Necklace

To say this is a statement necklace is an understatement! It is one of many from the Happiness Boutique, a shop full of great accessories to up your accessory game. You can layer it on pretty much anything, from a basic tee to a cocktail dress, it elevates a basic look to another level! Case and point this ensemble: it gave an otherwise basics look the perfect edge to have cocktails with girlfriends! Cheers! (& cheers to two more days left in this workweek!)

Fall Layers over Plaid

I can't believe it's November already! To celebrate I'm doing my favorite Fall task: layering! Nothing like Fall layering to bring patterns and rich textures to life. I loved Karina Dresses so much (previously spoke about how comfy it is on my figure here) that I got it in this cool plaid pattern for Fall/Winter, yep, still on that yo-yo diet so this fits perfectly. The faux fur vest is such a comfy touch, it just made me feel so cozy!

Poncho Fever

I have been feverishly looking for a nice poncho (hence the title), and finally got my hands on this cozy gray beauty from SheIn ! Part of my poncho checklist was that 1. It looked chic (vs. matronly), 2. It was comfortable and 3. It was not an overwhelming piece (vs. looking like I tossed on a blanket). I also feel like I lucked out with this chunky turtle neck poncho, a 2 in 1!

Obsessed with the Vest

Yes the vest has returned for its third time (first seen here, then here) and that only goes to show how versatile it is! This time I layered over a plain white tee and my "knight" skinny jeans from Cabi to (again) give it that sleek feel. This was also the perfect opportunity to bring in the statement necklace, that also made its debut last post. If ever you feel like your outfit is lacking a lil somethin' somethin' add a statement necklace it takes the outfit up a notch. Not convinced? Envision my outfit without it = plain Jane *sad face* Hope you all have a terrific weekend!

Midi Two in One

When the heat strikes again, you have to make the best of it and say- bonus Summer! To attend a fashion event in the heat I turned to this very comfy dress that looks like it's two pieces. Since it was very basic I decided to toss on a statement necklace and the striped clutch to give it some pizzazz.

Boho Vibes

Every Fall season, I don a boho inspired outfit to officially welcome Fall with open arms (as seen here and here). Who would have thought that just three pieces (the felt fedora hat, the flowy printed dress, the fringe boots) could instantly make me feel like Fall fashion's bff? And can we take a moment to acknowledge my new fringe boots? After drooling over 9 pairs, as previously shared with y'all here, these were the winners. Warning: you will definitely see these in heavy rotation!

Chic Mate!

There is something sleek about a black and white combo especially when it involves a good windowpane/grid pattern! I typically add in a pop of color to my black and white ensembles, but this one felt like it should stay in the colorless realm. PS. I'm addicted to long-line vests, if all else fails or if you have any doubt about your outfit, a vest is like a chic hall pass! I highly recommend having one on hand.

Fringe-tastic Heels

If there is one trend that has called my name (and the name of countless fashionistas on Instagram) it is fringe! Fringe is everywhere, from coats to skirts to my favorite... shoes! In the search for the perfect fringe booties I found these fringe-tastic heels that I wish I could have added to my cart without hesitation, but of course the budget prevails! The upside is that I can share these fab finds with y'all so I have linked all of these beauties below! Let me know which ones are your faves in the comment section!

San Diego Fall?

It is officially Fall, however (huge however) our San Diego weather still hits 80 degrees! Over the weekend I said "if I can't beat it, I'll join it!" The husband and I decided to dine by the bay at the newly opened Coasterra Restaurant with beautiful views of the city - a reminder of how beautiful San Diego is. Their food was amazing! It's Mexican cuisine which I can be particular about since I grew up eating it, but I can definitely put my stamp of approval on theirs.

Fall Staples Ensemble

What happens when you put a bunch of Fall Staples together? Well in my case, you get this ensemble! Each piece on its own has been in heavy rotation lately (and don't be surprised if you see them pop up in future outfits). The "Casablanca" trench needs no introduction as it recently made its debut here, as well as the structuted clutch (seen here and here), but hold up... these leopard pumps I'm bringing in from 2 years ago which is a true definition of a timeless Fall staple.

Furry Furry Fall

Make no mistake about it, it is still H-O-T here in San Diego, but I wanted to sacrifice my comfort in the name of Fall fashion in today's post because I really wanted to start showcasing some amazing Fall finds.

Let's start with this "furry furry jacket" from Cabi that aside from being cute, is in a cropped shape that won't make you look bulky (aka like a walking fur ball) which tends to be my issue with furry/faux fur pieces. I paired it with these skinny jeans, also from Cabi, that I stamp with my approval because they are amazingly comfortable (strechy denim). I have started to collect Cabi denim (now on my third pair) and I can't rave about them enough - the quality, shape, and style of their pieces are just superb. Hope you like it!!

Professional Attire

The title alone may sound boring but professional attire does not have to be! Professional attire and/or that job interview outfit may vary depending on what industry you are in, but if you are like me, working in a professional environment, conservative is key. Again, conservative doesn't have to be boring, instead it can be classy and timeless.

In that Polka Dot Dress

I love me a stretchy dress when my yo-yo weight kicks in *cough* I've been on an eating rampage since our wedding. This Karina Dress hit the mark on comfort with its stretchy yet flattering material, plus it was perfect for traveling since it doesn't wrinkle! I wore this while out of town for a fancy dinner and loved that I could indulge in some good food and wine without having to feel like a stuffed chicken. I keep telling myself I'm going to work out and then I walk outside into this killer heat and say, eh, maybe when it cools down?

Transitioning in Olive

I can always count on certain colors to reach for when Fall is around the corner and currently I'm coveting this tone of olive green in an updated form like this trench dress from Shein. It's sleek and flowy and perfect for the odd 80 degree San Diego weather we are currently experiencing! Once it actually starts feeling like Fall, I also envision this piece layered over a turtle neck and even skinny jeans. Hope you like it!

Fall Trends with Neiman Marcus

As much as I'm sad that Summer is on its last leg, talking about Fall Trends is a mandatory fashionista discussion and what better way to start this discussion than by recapping the Fall Trend Report from Neiman Marcus?! I had the opportunity to preview their Fall 2015 Trends during their blogger luncheon in the Fashion Valley store, where we were treated to two of my favorites: fashion and food. See what I wore for the luncheon HERE!

NM Fashion Valley's own Style Advisor, Alex Yáñezbroke down the trend report for us with a fashion show of his beautiful styled interpretations. Here are my favorites and the ones that I see myself adopting.

Chic In-vested

One of my favorite seasonal presentations occurred yesterday, the Neiman Marcus Trend Report for the upcoming season, Fall 2015. I know it's hard to start thinking about Fall, especially as I hear my AC running, but that's part of the fashion game - always keeping an eye of what is coming next! 

To be in the "Fall" mentality for the presentation (without burning up, of course), I wore this monochromatic outfit. I was craving structure (vs. flowy) and loved how the outfit came together when I layered a structured vest and clean lined clutch. You can easily convert this to an office look by switching out the shoes to some profesh pumps.

As always, I will fill you in on the latest trends in an upcoming blog post (unless you already saw the live footage on my Snapchat under 'lilbitsofpau'). I'll be breaking down the trends straight from Neiman Marcus' style Advisor! Update: The blog post is now live HERE!

Striped Blazer

After a few sleepless nights in Vegas wearing dresses and swimwear, jeans were a must for this day of meeting with our wedding cake lady! This navy striped blazer from SheIn was the perfect way to jazz up the outfit and also kept me comfy (as I still recover- shh!). I'll be recapping whatever I remember from  my bachelorette party, or as my bridesmaids named it #Pauchelorette but in the meantime a few pics have surfaced on my Instagram here!

Staying Cool

San Diego fashion blogger, san diego style bloggers, white airy top, pink blush, how to wear a white top with jeans
Lately I have been gravitating to pairing airy tops with anything I wear because of this very unpredictable San Diego weather! Let me tell you how unpredictable, this past Saturday the sun was out blazing at about 80 degrees so I thought it was the perfect opportunity to work on my tan. I put my tanning oil on, my bikini and headed out to our community pool down the street. Not even 5 minutes after I had laid out, clouds rolled in and started raining! #tanningfail It turned out to be a full on storm 10 minutes later- like really?!

Anywho, back to this airy top from Pink Blush it has cool geometric shapes that give it some pizzaz, giving any outfit that effortless stylish feel. When I saw this top I saw many outfit opportunities- with jean shorts, with a skirt, but ultimately I went with my favorite... jeans!

Floral and Flattering Maxi

Maxi dresses are my favorite on those "I'm too lazy to make an ensemble" days, when I compromise how flattering clothes look on me, however this maxi dress from Pink Blush worked its magic- it is as flattering as it is comfortable! To top it off, this same dress comes in an array of fashionable patterns and prints, from tribal to damask print, to other prints that may fit your style. What I also like about this maxi dress is that it is a statement in itself and doesn't require much accessorizing. I ended up wearing this dress to my friend Patty's garden party and it was a total hit!

My Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Picks

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is a big deal not only for us usual shopaholics, but for savvy shoppers due to the highly discounted prices on amazing brand name items. Typically when prices are slashed by this much, it is because the items are on their way out (from previous seasons), but with the Nordstrom Anniversary sale, it's the other way around. For a limited time you can shop Pre-Fall 2015 products both in store and online at highly discounted prices. These are items that are totally on or ahead of trend, and will go back to full price when the sale is over on August 2nd (which will be a sad day). It's time to nab any items that you may have been eye'ing, like this Michael Kors watch that is down to $166 from $250, or this adorable Kate Spade Crossbody now $98 from $150. You'll notice that my picks are pieces that can live in your closet for many years, (hello, I still have my MK watch after 4 years!) and beauty items I have been coveting for a long time.

Early Access for Nordstrom Rewards Members is right now until July 16th, and on July 17th the sale will open up to the public. If you're a Nordstrom credit card or debit card holder, you get first dibs on a lot of brand name items that are sure to sell out! Obviously you can open a card now, but I would only recommend that if it's in your budget ;) (the financial analyst in me feels the need to say that).

If you're not a Nordstrom card holder here's a sneak peek of all my faves- make sure to get your hands on them on July 17- August 2nd!

Relaxed Trench

The struggle for a work-life and wedding planning balance is real y'all! Last week, I felt the stress on my body, my heart would pump faster at certain points of the day and I even ranted on snapchat (username: lilbitsofpau ... heaayy!).

After working on my day off, I decided that things needed to change in my life, if not now then in baby steps. First step of my strategy was to not open my work laptop for a day, so on Fourth of July I didn't turn it on, I enjoyed the day with family and friends, watched the fireworks as if it were the first time in my life AND ate without restrictions (since I've been on wedding diet more).

You might be wondering what my whole shpeal has to do with this outfit, well....

American Woman

With 4th of July just a couple of days away,  I had to add a touch of red, white and blue to my casual look. Mission accomplished by this cool patriotic jelt belt from Shimmer which is made of 100% recycled material and its elasticity is a great fit. Oddly enough, we had some torrential rain as I was shooting the outfit, so it literally rained on my outfit parade, but the vision of a 4th of July BBQ with a cold glass of wine kept me smiling (and hiding for cover). 

I have also included additional 4th of July outfit ideas at the end of this post if you're interested. Have a terrific and safe weekend if you are here in the U.S.!!

Pastel Summer

I know that pastels are usually reserved for Summer, but I was feeling extra pastel inspired this weekend when I received a gorgeous (and delicious) box of macarons all the way from Macaron Cafe in New York City! Macaron Cafe ships nationwide so if you're craving these goodies you can place an order and get them delivered to your doorstep like I did!

If you are that brave soul following me on Snapchat (under username 'lilbitsofpau'- yes shameless plug) then you know I was working on my closet-room this weekend. Well, I found this and other pieces of clothes stashed in my closet and I had forgotten to share it! Arg! It only motivated me more to keep cleaning, purging and organizing, although sometimes it feels like a never ending battle!
