Packing For Paris

I’m heading to Paris in a few days and wanted to share what I’m packing!  I’ve been waiting for this trip allllll year!  It’s freeezing there – but what better excuse to pop in and out of bakeries and hotel lobbies warming up with croissants, pastries, and cocktails?! Packing For Paris I bought this teddy coat and could not believe how flattering it was on – and inexpensive.  It looks so good with a body suit underneath.  This Wolford bodysuit/turtleneck is a splurge, but worth it.  The material is so stretchy and slimming. These Aquazzura heels just went on sale – and so did this Simon Miller bag.  I’ve been wanting it in white forever, but I already have 2 of their bags so I feel like I need to switch it up haha.  If you’re looking for a new travel bag, this one has been in my wardrobe for years and is made of vegan leather.  Plus it’s under $100. I’m still blown away by this mascara and can’t believe I hadn’t tried it until this year.  Only 2 coats and you’ve got lashes for days!!!  I can’t go to Paris without my favorite perfume.  Diptyque has such beautiful shops in Paris and I am soooo excited to visit one of them and take something pretty home with me. Have a wonderful weekend and be sure to shop more of my travel must haves below!

A Winter Wrap Coat

Happy Monday! I’m selling some of my favorite gently used designer bags + shoes today on my Instagram. So be sure to check out the selection before items sell out!  A few things have actually already sold! You guys are fast! :)  I’ve been suffering from major January-itis. Anyone else?  The good thing is, I’ve been staying home, hibernating and cleaning out my closet. The bad thing is, I just feel sort of blahhhhh from eating way too much dairy, gluten, and sugar over the holidays and am having a hard time getting back in the swing of things.  Thanks in advance for your understanding as I ease back into a normal blog posting schedule! It’s a miracle I got a blog post up today haha.No, but really can you relate?!  The brain fog and lack of motivation is REAL.  Luckily, I’ve been juicing every morning which really sets the tone for my day (oh man, I sound so LA lol…). And I just booked 2 trips! One to Paris (next week wahoo!) and one to Aspen in 2 weeks which has definitely got me feeling a bit more energized again.  I’m looking forward to visiting two of my favorite cities and checking out new spots in each of them to add to my Travel App. I’ll be sharing posts throughout this month and next on how to combat those winter blues that we all experience – with comforting recipes (hello soup season!), my new favorite makeup products. (We all know how something as simple as a pretty gloss or face mask can instantly turn a day around!). Also, cute cold weather outfit ideas – which can all be found here. Mackage CoatThis taupe winter wrap coat from Mackage sold out right after I posted it on Liketoknowit a few months ago, but luckily I found it restocked online here, here, and here (oh, and here in a shorter, less expensive version!)  It’s such a gorgeous piece to have for fall, winter or spring (although I must say it’s quite a lightweight material so you would definitely need a fur vest or chunky cashmere turtleneck under it for walking around all day in the winter.)  The taupe color is beautiful and the slim cut is super flattering!  I’m wearing a size small here – and found that it runs true to size.  FYI I’m about 5’6.5″ to be exact! I paired this coat with my favorite L’Agence jeans that you may be tired of seeing me wear, but they’re not going anywhere!!!!  I adore these jeans, the high waisted cut, the ultra soft denim, the chic ripped details… so much so that I have them in 2 other washes.  L’Agence is my favorite denim company if you can’t already tell – once you try their jeans you won’t go back trust me! Shop my entire look below!  Ps if you snagged one of my designer bags from my closet sale – share a photo with me.  I want to see how you styled it. :)  And if you’re ever interested in any of my clothing items, you can always find me on Poshmark.

Currently Coveting

I haven’t done a Currently Coveting in forever and there are SO many goodies I’m eyeing right now so I wanted to share!  Many of these are on sale btw!  I just ordered these white booties for Paris and am debating whether or not this shearling jacket – which is majorly discounted – needs to come with me on my trip.  It comes in black, white and this pretty blush color.  I love any kind of bodysuit, but especially in January when I’ve eaten a few too many baked goods.  I love the way a bodysuit feels and looks – they’re so flattering and suck everything in ;) Whenever I’m experiencing the winter blues or post holiday slump – I like ordering new makeup products to give me that extra pep in my step.  I am obsessed with this light pink lipgloss. Sooooo gorgeous on, and this Bobbi Brown eyeshadow palette that has every color you’d ever want.  This dry shampoo smells INCREDIBLE and is giving my favorite R & Co dry shampoo a run for its money. I’ve been living in cozy sweaters and just ordered this one.  This Madewell beanie would look great paired with it – as well as these uber comfy sneakers.  If you’ve never tried on Allbirds – your life will forever be changed once you put your foot in them!  They are like walking on tempurpedic clouds.  I am obsessed with mine – and don’t wear socks with them.  I just slip them on and run out the door. These chunky gold hoops are so fun. One of my girlfriends has been wearing them nonstop and making me tempted to get my own!  I included a few other things I have my eye on like this Staud bag, this sherpa coat, and this fab pink number (a splurge!) below!

Ice Skating in Central Park

Happy Monday!  I’m back from a wonderful 2 week blog break that was much, much needed.  I really took the holiday to catch up on sleep, spend time with friends and family, and brainstorm for the year.  I rarely give myself time off to truly unwind and stop working so this was a real treat! I’ve been in LA for the holidays so I’ve been living in sweatpants and sweaters!  It’s true haha!  These photos from NYC last month are making me excited to travel and go somewhere cold that actually requires winter coats like this.  I’m heading to Paris in 3 weeks for a belated birthday trip and Aspen for a fun snow trip with my honey.  Expect to see lots more winter outfits like this :) This faux fur coat is such a fun piece.  I’ve been incorporating more faux fur into my wardrobe and it’s pretty incredible how similar/real the new faux pieces these days look.  I mean look at this oversized coat!  It looks like mink!  It would be so fabulous in Paris.  I added ALL of your Paris restaurant recommendations to the highlights tab on my Instagram btw – I cannot wait to eat my way through the City of Lights!  Feel free to share any other of your favorites in the comments below!
