Recent Purchases Try On

12.08.2017


Happy Friday loves! We got our first snow today and I couldn't be more excited!! We don't usually get snow this early, it usually comes (if at all) after December. So I finally had a chance to try on my black Friday purchases and take pictures for you guys! 

ugg naiyah boot black outfit
First up are these UGG boots. I need a warm pair of boots to wear with leggings and casual outfits and these fit the bill perfectly. They are a little different from other UGGs because they have a slimmer design and look less bulky which I love. I got them in the mail on Wednesday and I've been wearing them every day because they are just so comfy!! I also picked up this to go with them. As for fit, I went up a half size because some reviews said they ran narrow.

7 for all mankind ankle skinny jean review
Move over AG leggings jeans, 7FAM is my new favorite! I love a super fitted jean that is still stretchy and comfortable yet keeps its shape all day. These have all that and more. The distressing and wash are perfect and have quickly turned these into my everyday jeans. These fit true to size.

bloomingdales aqua cashmere sweater review
AQUA cashmere sweater (25% off with code FRIENDS)
If you're looking for some super soft and good quality cashmere sweaters try one of these! I loved the Black Friday price (under $60!) but wouldn't mind paying full price now that I've tried them. I bought mine in the heather brown color and it is a gorgeous neutral. It's super warm and a great layering piece. I got mine in size S and find the length to be perfect for leggings. THESE are my favorite leggings (Wearing them in the last photo!).

hudson nico skinny jeans review
These jeans fit like a glove and I think they might be the most comfortable pair of jeans I've ever tried on! There's just one thing about them that is stopping me from ripping the tags off and keeping them... The knee rips. They hit me below the knees and I think it's a bit unflattering and looks weird. But maybe it's just me. Other than that they're amazing! For now, they'll just sit in my closet while I decide if I should keep or return. These fit true to size. 

cream faux fur jacket outfit
 RUE21 faux fur jacket (similar here or here)
I didn't buy these last two items during the Black Friday sales but I figured I would show you guys anyways. This jacket is super soft and was under $35. I haven't worn it out yet but I know I'll be super warm whenever I decide to.

boucle sweater with leggings and ugg boots
 RUE21 boucle sweater (similar here)
Love love love this sweater! It's so cozy and the kind of sweater you just want to wear all day long. The length works great with leggings - these are my favorite.

How to Style White Jeans in Winter

12.04.2017



BP sweater (similar) | MADEWELL faux fur vest (similar here or here) | RUE21 jeans (similar) | FOREVER 21 otk boots (similar) | FOSSIL watch | PIECES OF ME bracelet (use code NGONZALEZ for 10% off) | WESTWARD \ LEANING sunglasses 

Hey loves! White jeans are a spring and summer staple for me but I love wearing them year round. I think they're especially great in winter when we tend to reach for darker colors more often. They brighten up a dark winter outfit so well. I have 3 tips to help you style your white jeans this winter.

1. Add some faux fur! If you've been reading my blog for a while you know I love faux fur, especially the vest I'm wearing. I got so much wear out of it last year that I ordered another vest this year (I'll show it to you guys later this week!). A little faux fur is a perfect way to add some texture and warmth to your winter looks. I bought mine from Madewell but this one or this one are super similar and both under $100.

2. Wear over the knee boots. In my last post (You can find it here.) I talked about how otk boots are a must-have for winter. If you don't already own a pair, trust me, you need them! They are so versatile and you can rock them even if you're only 5'2 like me. They go so well with white jeans whether you choose to go with classic black or opt for a lighter shade like taupe or grey. I love how Caitlin of Southern Curls and Pearls styled hers here. One tip I have for those of you with smaller legs is to look for a pair that's adjustable around the thigh. That way you can adjust the tightness & they're not constantly falling down your legs. This pair from Asos is super similar and is adjustable around the thigh (& they just went on sale!).

3. Layer up! When wearing your white jeans in winter you'll want to go for a layered look to add warmth and keep things interesting. Pick your softest cashmere sweater and then your warmest coat. Add a chunky beanie, and your favorite blanket scarf and you're done. You turned your summer staple into a winter favorite! If you still haven't found a good pair of white jeans, try these. They're marked down a good bit and Hudson jeans are super comfortable and stretchy.

There you have it. I hope you enjoyed my 3 tips on how to style your white jeans into winter!

Talk to you guys soon. xx

Winter isn't officially here but December is and in my mind, that means the beginning of winter... Which means we'll be layered in our favorite cold weather accessories for the next few months. So I wanted to share 2 of my favorites that I'll be wearing on repeat this season.

First up is my black suede over the knee boots. These are surprisingly versatile! You can wear this style of boot with everything from jeans to dresses and you can dress them down (like I have) or up for a night out. There are so many options out there for OTK boots. I love this pair for a good budget-friendly option or this one. Or if you're willing to splurge this pair is a favorite of many! If you're not too sure about the style then you can buy a more affordable version just to see how it would fit in with your wardrobe and the amount of wear you'd get. Mine were under $50 and I've worn them SO much over the last year that I'm considering this pair or these.

The second must-have accessory is a plaid scarf. You guys know I love scarves! It instantly adds a cozy holiday feel to any winter outfit. For me, it adds the perfect pop of color because I live in neutrals. You can find a plaid scarf just about anywhere or you might already own one. I love this buffalo plaid one or this one (The boucle knit makes it extra cozy!) is super similar to mine. For more inspiration on how to style plaid scarves this winter check my Pinterest!

Happy Friday guys! xx

What I Bought From the Sales

11.25.2017

what i bought during black friday sales

There were so many great Black Friday sales and some of them are still going on through the weekend. I made a big list (and still updating it!) of all the best sales yesterday - you can find it here. I'm always curious what people are buying either for themselves or others on Black Friday so here's what I bought so far. Leave me a comment letting me know one thing you bought yourself during the sales!

 GRANA silk cami - I love these silk camis!! I own two of them already and wear them all the time. I did a review on them here.
AQUA cashmere sweater (This one is on sale for cheaper!) I wanted a neutral color that wasn't black, cream or grey and this one is the perfect in between!
UGG boots (really LOVE this pair!) My feet are always cold and I think these will be great for everyday use this winter. They're slimmer than your typical UGG boot and I love that.
GRANA silk cami - Red is the perfect color for the holidays and like I said earlier, I love these silk camis!
7 FAM jeans - I live in jeans and I'm always looking for my new favorite. I love the rips and wash on this pair. 
 HUDSON jeans - Another pair of jeans because they were $89!!

Thanks for reading and have a great weekend!! Xx

Good morning guys! If you haven't started your holiday shopping now is the time! Most stores have been rolling out their Black Friday sales since Monday (H&M has had a different sale every day!). This year there's no specific item that I really want so I've just been keeping my eye out on the sales for something good. One of the best sales right now is at Levi's. They have 40% off EVERYTHING - including SALE items (plus free shipping). It doesn't get any better than that. The sizes in the good washes always sell out fast so stop what you're doing and get yourself a pair (or two). I recently purchased one of their jeans in the 501 skinny fit and I'm obsessed! They fit like a boyfriend jean on me and I love it. The wash and the rips are perfection too! Shop all 501 skinny jeans here. The ones I'm wearing in the pictures are in the wash old hangouts. Get them, you'll love them! I gathered up some of my favorites down below. 
I will keep you guys updated on any other good sales. I'm thinking about doing a roundup of all the best sales on Friday. Let me know if that's something you guys would be interested in. Or maybe a roundup of everything I'm buying. Anyways, besides scoring all the best deals I hope you all have a wonderful time with your family and friends!! Happy Thanksgiving! xx

P.S. If you are buying anything from the Levi's website make sure to sign up for Ebates to get even more savings! Right now they have 11.5% cash back. You can sign up here.   

The Leggings Every Girl Needs

Leggings are my top pick when I want to dress comfortably. They fit like a glove and don't restrict my movement like some jeans tend to do. One style of leggings that I always have in my closet are faux leather. They're the best of the best in my opinion! They dress up your outfits like no other leggings yet you get all the comfort you love. My favorite pair is the Spanx leather legging. The fit is amazing and super flattering - no bagginess and they don't stretch out. (I'm hoping they go on sale for black Friday so I can snatch up another pair!) My other go-to (and more affordable option) for faux leather leggings is H&M. They always have some, especially around this time of the year. This is the pair I usually go for but is currently sold out in most sizes, however, this pair is still in stock in all sizes and is just $35! 

Are you a fan of leather leggings as well? Let me know! xx

Wishlist // What's in My Shopping Cart

11.17.2017



I've been wanting to play around more with different eyeshadow looks but I don't own many eye brushes. In fact, I have one round fluffy brush that I bought from Target years ago and that's what I use practically every time I wear eyeshadow. The set is under $40 and from what I've read about Sigma, their brushes are amazing quality and will last for many years!

I've been loving my Samsung note 8! The pen is AMAZING! Seriously, I could probably do an entire post on it haha! Now that I have a Samsung I can finally get cute cases and I'm obsessed with the waterfall cases from case mate! Before when I had my nexus and pixel phones I had to settle for not so cute cases and was always jealous of all the options available for iphones haha. The karat series from case mate is also gorgeous.

I included these beauties in my Luxe Beauty Gift Guide post I did last week. And now they've made it into my shopping cart ha! I did my research on the sizes of the products included and they're far from teeny tiny samples, more like travel size and a couple of them are actually full size. They're all brands I've never tried before so I'm really excited to get my hands on this set!

I picked up a cashmere scarf from Zara a few months ago and it's the softest thing ever! It makes me wish I had it in a sweater version. The only thing is that cashmere can get kinda pricey but I found this one on sale right now for under $100 and it comes in tons of colors! It's a turtleneck and is fitted so it's a great layering piece under winter coats!

When I'm shopping I instantly gravitate towards chunky sweaters! They just make me so happy and I feel so cozy when I wear them. I've been looking for a cable knit sweater and this pink one from Vila is gorgeous! It's in my cart but I'm going to wait to see what kind of deals come around for black Friday!

 Yes, another product from last weeks gift guide! This candle gift set is honestly such a good value that I couldn't pass it up. It's a great gift for anyone on your list who has never tried Diptyque. Now I'll be able to sample them before dropping a pretty penny on the full sized candle!

short rain boots
My closet has been missing a good classic pair of rain boots but not for too much longer because I just ordered these! If you live in a snowy or rainy climate these will be a staple for you. They're short and come in either glossy or matte black to easily go with your winter outfits. I first came across these on Nordstrom's website but found them cheaper (under $40) here. So I had to order them right away!

My Favorite Hat

It's safe to say I'm  o b s e s s e d  with this hat. It goes so well with many of my daily outfits that sometimes I wear it too much... I mean last week I wore it 4 days straight (I wish I was kidding) ha! Mine is from h&m and if you can find it, I would highly suggest you pick one up for yourself! Since I've been getting so much wear out of this one, now I'm contemplating getting another one, specifically this one. I first saw it on Julie from Sincerely Jules and I instantly fell in love with it. It's just a beautiful hat. There's just one problem: the price. If I converted it over to US dollars correctly it would be a little over $100. That's a lot of money for just a hat but the color and everything about it is just gorgeous. I can't decide. What do you guys think?

I hope you all have a wonderful Monday! xx
