Packing for LA

I’m back in NYC for the week before heading to LA for a few fun projects/meetings. Apparently they’re having a major heat wave (can’t believe it was 90 degrees this weekend!) so I’ll be living in light sundresses and sandals.  If I make it to Malibu, I’ll be bringing this cute beach tote with me (which would double as a great groceries/dry cleaning bag at home.)  I plan on packing this sweatshirt dress from last spring and am loving the two new colors it comes in.  These are the perfect white distressed skinny jeans and this embellished clutch is exactly what I’ve been looking for.  I can’t get enough nude lip colors and think it’s time to try lipstick instead of gloss – this one comes highly recommended.  I’ll be packing Essie’s Resort 2015 polish pack inside my Tory Burch cosmetic case this trip.  I’m leaning towards the royal blue polish color for something different!  There are a ton of great sales going on this week – Piperlime and Shopbop just marked down hundreds of styles and J.Crew is offering 25% off new items (I couldn’t resist stocking up on their classic button downs.)

    I love all these pics Kat. I’ve actually been on the hut for a beach tote, and I will definitely check this one out. I’m ready for spring, it was in the 80’s (felt like 90’s) this past weekend here in Florida. Wearing shorts and airy dresses are going to be a must because the season is going to be hot! Have a lovely day!

    xo, Maria

    It was so incredibly hot this past weekend, I wouldn’t have survived in jeans. And I’m in slightly cooler Orange County! Fortunately I think it’s suppose to cool down a little.

    Yep, it’s been crazy hot over here the past few days, but seems that the weather will cool down starting tomorrow and stay like that for 3-4 days after that.
    Welcome to LA! :)
