The Proms and Madison

So, I've posted a bit more photos than I usually like to, but I couldn't resist. The London skyline was looking beautiful and the city was so alive! My lovely boyfriend surprised me with a trip to the BBC Proms! We went to Prom 4 and it was fantastic! I always feel so luxuriously listening to classical music. First we went to dinner at the the rooftop bar and restaurant Madison! It was so, so, soooo delicious!
Hope you enjoy!

What I wore:
Ice blue Zara blouse
White Zara pants
and nude wedges

Al Fresco Birthday Fun!

It's been a lovely birthday weekend filled with friends and fun! Harry and I have been just about everywhere this week and there will be many more posts to come! We had a lovely garden party with the most fabulous dessert spread. I was amazed! Almond biscotti cookies, lemon tart, peaches in champagne and a lovely cheese spread. I wore a floral print shirt from Zara and just a casual pair of white skinny jeans, simple but classy! Hope you enjoy the photos!

Vacation in Los Angeles: The Getty Villa

     I am finally back from my two week vacation in Los Angeles. It was so much fun, but too busy to post. So now that I have the time I will do a mini Los Angeles vacation series including my sister's Bat Mitzvah and my graduation! 
     These photos were taken at the Getty Villa (not to be confused with the Getty Center). The once home of oil mogul Paul Getty was commissioned by Getty himself to be modeled after the Villa de Papiri in Naples, in order to house his growing antiquities collection! To be quite honest we didn't even go into the museum, the grounds and gardens were so luscious we had plenty to amuse ourselves with! I would highly recommend taking a visit here and having a light lunch at the villa!
     As there is always marine layer in Santa Monica (my home!) and Malibu I wore statement print pants in a more subdued color, a white tee and a white blazer. Just to jazz it up a bit I wore a rhinestone  necklace. I always wanted trousers like these, but was too scared, but hopefully I have pulled it off!? 
P.S. Sorry for the audio guide in my hand we were taking a tour of the gardens!

Pants- Primark
Tee- Zara
Blazer- H&M (seriously the best blazer out there!)

Busy, Busy!

I have been so incredibly busy lately. Decorating the new flat has taken all of my energy and time, but we did sneak away for champagne lunch at Yo Sushi! So delicious!

What I wore, but you can't really see: Sea foam green, front racerback crop top from Zara and dark denim skinny jeans from Forever21. My new lipstick? Vicious Violet from Barry M.! So obsessed!

The Hunter

       I am obsessed with the style that comes from the British countryside, so anything that includes hunting, horse riding (ie hunting jackets, equestrian boots, jodhpur leggings and plaids!), so its obvious why I would love this jacket. It is a truly elegant twist on the hunting/army jacket favorite. Although every online blogger loves the army jacket with the leather sleeves, it is getting a bit overplayed, which is why this cream, tweed sleeved twist is a style must! I paired it with leggings and my riding wellies, that I always talk about, and a cream plaid scarf. Warm and cozy!

New Buys!

Since its been finals, it's been a bit tough finding time to do some outfit posts, so I thought I'd do a post on some of my recent purchases! The first piece is the Michael Kors Camille crystal encrusted bracelet. watch. It was in my last two posts and is a great statement piece! Although, very pricey its so stylish and clean. Despite its excessive bling it can indeed by dressed up and dressed down!

My second purchase are these super chic stilettos from Forever21. I call them my airport shoes, because they remind me of the super glamorous stilts that everyone seems to be rocking to the airport. As a frequent flyer, I don't personally understand the desire to wear painful shoes to somewhere you most probably will end up walking a mile, lugging around an obese tote bag (us shopaholics can not help but overpack), but I have to admit it looks gorgeous! These shoes are bang on trend with the metal detailing and ever so chic with the thin flat straps, which are popping up in every store, but my favorite part was the price!

Summer Simplicity

     The weather is fine and the sun is shinning in LA. So, I thought I'd take advantage of the summer fun, before I'm off to London at the end of March! I was so excited to find these shorts at Zara this weekend, I just had to have them. I think cut off, black, denim shorts are an essential! But, my favorite part about this outfit is the gold accents in the watch and shoes! You probably can't tell from any of my posts yet, but I love BLACK & GOLD.

Emerald - Pantone color of 2013!


As I have recently fallen in love with emerald and it has been chosen as Pantone 2013 color of the year, I thought I would do a post. I love the color emerald because it oozes glamour! I saw this shirt a while ago at Zara when it first came out and had to have it then and there! Its great because its so versatile- dress it up down, autumn, winter, summer, it doesn't matter! Usually I wear this shirt with my everyday uniform- leggings, silk blouse, and riding boots, but I love dressing it up!

One of my other favorite parts about this look is the make-up! I was inspired by this look, which I adore, !!! Also, I did nails to match by OPI called An Affair in Red.

Thanks for looking and thanks for all the amazing people who help to make this blog possible! I promise to post more often from now on!
