Upcoming Fashion Gala: Heels2Heal ft. Nicole Miller

On Saturday, November 8th, 2014, San Diego will have one of its most fashionable nights with a Gala for a great cause! "Heels2Heal" will bring a taste of Fashion Week to San Diego with a runway show by renowned New York City designer Nicole Miller who will be at the event showcasing her Spring 2015 collection.

The event will be held in a gorgeous private estate in La Jolla, accompanied by San Diego's finest food and music. There will be a silent auction and a highly anticipated live auction featuring exclusive international getaways and adventures!

The money raised at this year's event will help San Diego Youth Services provide direct and emotional assistance to improve the lives of homeless, runaway, abused and at risk children. This organization is very near and dear to me as my future mother-in-law Laura is a Community Outreach Specialist and my future sister-in-law Jess is a Prevention Specialist with the school based suicide prevention program called "HERE now". Both are extremely passionate about what they do, and listening to their stories over the years exemplifies how amazing this organization is in aiding our community.

Purchase your tickets to the "Heel2Heel" event here

If you are unable to attend or are not in the San Diego area, a "would like to donate" option is available. Every dollar is greatly appreciated as it counts towards the future of our youth in need!!

Wondering what to wear? Cocktail to Formal attire is recommended. Here are some ideas ft. Nicole Miller:

When I (and my poor feet) need to take a break from heels, it doesn't necessarily mean it's also a break from fashion. As recently as New York Fashion Week, world-renowned fashionistas were spotted wearing sneakers, I'll give you a moment to gasp- yes sneakers! Although I wouldn't necessarily wear sneakers to fashion week, it did inspire me to incorporate sneakers into my outfits. 

When I received this cool athlethic, yet chic "Dash" jacket from CAbi, I instantly knew that this would be the perfect time to bring in my new hot pink kicks for an all over athletic chic vibe.

Fall Tribal

A recent cool-off here in San Diego finally allowed me to play with some Fall pieces I have been anxiously waiting to wear and coincidentally they all went together like puzzle pieces! Obviously, it wasn't rocket science since most of the pieces are black, but I do love that they all have a tribal slash boho vibe to it, down to the Naughty Monkey booties with cute cutout details

Since metallic tattoos were oh so popular during Summer (paired with bikinis and what not) I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to show that these Dream Tats can transition into Fall by replacing actual jewelry!

Houndstooth for H&M Opening

Happy Friday!!! Can you tell I'm excited? Yesterday, I had the honor yet again to be a Style Consultant and host a twitter giveaway at the Grand Opening of the H&M located inside the new Outlets at the Border! To host my duties, I picked out this dress their location and added the H&M signature color red as a pop of color against the dress. **Update: Sadly, I dropped my camera right before these pictures were taken, hence the blurryness *sad face*! Upon realizing it, I had to run to Best Buy to get a new lense and I was back in business!**

I'm still riding off of that high from participating in last week's amazing H&M Opening at Parkway Plaza (read my recap here), and I'm so excited to announce that H&M is opening another store in our lovely city!

Join me this Thursday October 23, 2014 at the grand opening of H&M in the Outlets at the Border located in San Ysidro! The doors to the store open at 10am, but as I learned in my previous H&M opening experience, most of the fun happens beforehand!

Embellished Sweatshirt

Last week was full of work deadlines, my H&M event, topped with big life decisions like bridesmaids cards and house hunting, so when it came time to dress up for our SD Style Bloggers' Meet Up on Saturday this embellished cropped pullover from H&M was the perfect item for a tired gal like me because it made me feel both chic and comfortable!

Fall Black & White + H&M Opening Pics!

My black and white obsession continues well into Fall and yesterday while shopping at the new H&M in Parkway Plaza, I gravitated towards all of their black and white pieces! For my opening day look I opted for something more casual to be out there talking to the crowd and walking around the store (details of that below).

Join me at H&M's Opening in Parkway Plaza this Thursday!

Being a huge fan of H&M, I can remember a time a few years ago when I had to drive up to my "nearest" location in Los Angeles to stock up on those great essential and cool pieces that H&M offers.

Fast forward to present day, California has become one of H&M's strongest markets causing beautiful H&M locations to sprout all over San Diego and lucky for us, a new 20,000 square foot H&M location will open this Thursday October 16, 2014 at noon at Parkway Plaza and YOU are invited to join me at the opening day festivities that will be filled with lots of prizes!

Leopard Jacket

We can't discuss Fall without talking about leopard, the print that is synonymous with the season. Well for us leopard lovers, CAbi took it to the next level by making this all leopard "Estate Jacket" in a classic swing collar silhouette.

I incorporated this beauty in this Fall uniform of sorts and folded back the collar for a more laid back look. I can't wait to layer this coat over a simple LBD as this jacket brings the chicness to any outfit!

Little Heatwave Dress

Just when I thought Fall was here, our Summer in San Diego was unofficially extended with this heatwave! We had beach weather (can't complain) over the weekend with the temp hitting about 80 degrees and sunshine in full effect. 

When it came time to dress up to attend the #HHM Latina panel at Macy's, I couldn't even fathom wearing jeans, so I opted for this lightweight, mixed print shift dress and semi-glammed it up with these gold heels. Lightweight printed dresses are good to have on hand when the weather throws you a heatwave curve ball!

Cozy Knit Sweater

As I think of what every woman needs this Fall and Winter (an elegant coat, faux fur vest, hat) I get excited when I think about the comfiest piece on the list- a cozy knit sweater. It evokes that feeling of Fall, making me want to curl up with a cup of pumpkin spice latte.

Well, this "Joy Sweater" from CAbi is not only comfy and gorgeous, but it's long (for those days when you want to pair with leggings), it has pockets (because we all love pockets) and the stitching is superb all around the trim. This piece along with the other Fall items I've been showcasing will definitely be in heavy rotation this season and so will those darn lattes!
