Took these photos up the block from my parents’ house in Orange County, where we were able to catch last few minutes of sunlight. You may have noticed me tweeting about these Michael Kors boots a couple weeks back, so you can imagine my excitement when Blake surprised me with them for Christmas! Whatta guy…he always gets it right.

Hope whatever holidays you celebrate have been happy! ♥

Mish Mash

22 Dec

Just a little mash up of things that I like. You know, Lola, Blake, shoes, wine…

I will admit it, I have become a bit of an instagram junkie. Follow along for updates and snapshots from my daily grind.

Confession: I copied my girls Liz and Blair with this roundup idea. What can I say? It’s a cute one!

Snapped these photos at the airport after a quick trip to LA this past weekend. Blake and I have been a couple of busy bees lately, so we made do with our concrete surroundings.

This vintage pleated skirt kind of reminds me of Christmas. Sure, it makes me feel a tad matronly (hence the neon bra/see-thru shirt combo for balance), but still I was compelled to pull it out of hibernation.

A few days of normalcy until the holiday travel begins — first stop Las Vegas followed by Xmas at home with our families in SoCal. Then back to NYC in early January…can’t wait!

This past Tuesday I had the pleasure of co-hosting Shop It To Me’s #TreatYourself brunch in NYC with the lovely Christine of Court + Hudson and Helena of Brooklyn Blonde! It was a fun-filled morning of mimosas, massages and mingling at Joy Cioci’s gorgeous studio in SoHo. LOVE her designs, can you believe that neon green laser cut leather dress?!

Made new friends and caught up with old ones (like Christina pictured above!). If only I had an excuse to indulge like this every Tuesday.  OH, and not only did I get to celebrate Treat Yourself Tuesday w/ the brunch, but I also curated my very own Pop-Up shop for SITM as well…click here to check out my picks.

Enjoyed a low-key weekend in prep for what’s likely to be an exciting, whirlwind week. First stop is NYC tomorrow for a Shop It To Me event (more to come on that)…so stoked to be heading to my most favorite city!!

Picked up three versions of this long-sleeve tee from Zara this week…they are cheap and perfect for layering. While mint and mustard sounds like a repulsive culinary combo, it kind of works when it comes to color blocking, no?

Ventured over to Haight-Ashbury this weekend to check out the DNA pop-up, STOREFRONT. Such rad jewelry and cool, carefully-curated vintage. They’ll have different vendors each weekend in December, so I’m excited to see what gems they bring in next! Y’all should check it out.

I guess I was sort of channeling my inner hippie chick with this look (Haight St. adventures have a way of doing that). I must confess…I have always and will always be a BIG fan of bellbottoms.

DNA is so kindly offering OTR readers 30% their entire online store, now – 12/27. Just enter code ONTHERACKS11 at checkout! Score.
