Happy Friday! We made it ya'll. Another week in the bag. Do you have a costume yet? Me either. 

My plan today consists of finally getting to visit my dad, willingly letting someone shoot three needles in my ear (aka getting more ear piercings), and packing for a fun little weekend getaway to Palm Springs. 

But I'm not going to lie to you lovely people. My current mind set is very out of sorts. Things are tense in certain personal aspects of my life and I feel more unorganized than ever which I blame partially on my mid-renovated apartment. It really is true that if your work/living space isn't in tact, the domino effect is quite severe. 

So, I'm trying to keep my chin up, hoping for the best, and praying some much needed retail therapy out in Palm Springs is what the doctor would have likely ordered. 

See you on the other side babes. And I would love for you to follow me along this weekend on Instagram! Should be cute n stuff xx

Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic with Sole Society

This past Saturday I was lucky enough to attend my first Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic here in Los Angeles with Sole Society. I've always wanted to go because it involves everything I love- cocktails, getting dressed up, and spending the day outside. It's a win for everyone. 

Before the festivities began, myself and the rest of the Sole Society crew got dolled up at the Pali House in Santa Monica. It was fun to see how each of the girls styled our different Sole Society and 1State pieces. I went for my usual little black boots, black faux leather skirt, gold charms, and my new weakness which is handbags of the red variety.

As expected, the day was amazing! I love meeting and getting to know new ladies. It's always such a pleasure to be surrounded by inspiring, hard working women that are so beautiful inside and out. 

We spent most of the day frolicking the fields, admiring the surroundings, and making sure our glasses were always topped off. You really can't beat California in October, hashtag spoiled. 

It's safe to say that this will definitely become a yearly tradition. Maybe next year I'll be less distracted enough to join in on the divot stomping. 

A huge thank you to Sole Society and Rewardstyle for having me!

October Trend: Louise et Cie

My trend for this month features a new hobby of mine: matching my bag to my shoes. Groundbreaking? Hardly. But it's something I never cared about before but suddenly can't get enough of. 

The main reason why I love to be matchy-matchy is because it is the easiest way to instantly tie any outfit together. Here I paired my Louise et Cie heels and bag with black, cropped trousers and a cream sweater. 

Louise et Cie has the most amazing color palette for fall filled with perfect shades of black, gray, brown, and nudes. For someone that wears color sparingly, having so many choices within the limited color scheme I prefer is quite the treat. 

So when there are those days when you're feeling tired, and can barely muster the brain power to put an outfit together, I highly suggest following suit. People will be none the wiser!

Thank you Louise et Cie for sponsoring this post.

One Year Anniversary: Full-Time Influencer

Life has been busy as of late. This could be the part where I complain about the lack of sleep, constant stream of stress, and suddenly reverting back to a teenager with all these damn pimples- but, it's not. It's the part where I say Happy Anniversary Little Black Boots! And even with all the above mentioned, the past year has been full of growths and strides for me both personally and professionally. 

In October of 2015 I decided to trade in my full-time job for full-time blogging. It was very fitting (and definitely not planned) that this also is the month when I launched Little Black Boots back in 2012. My move from part-time to full-time felt very right at the time and I am happy to say I never once looked back. Blogging as my profession? Crazy. If you told me back when I was sitting in class at SDSU that this is what I would be doing, I would have absolutely given you some serious side-eye...and also probably skipped all those 9am classes.

When I started in 2012 it was purely a creative outlet. I loved the idea of being a part of a community of like-minded people who enjoyed sharing their thoughts/opinions/outlook of the fashion world. Just normal, every day people with a new platform to get across their ideas. Sign me up!

In 2013 I moved to LA from Orange County to start a new chapter and it was also when I really put in an effort towards Little Black Boots. It has been quite the windy, unpredictable journey since. I found my footing, many MANY stumbles later.

With that said, I don't have it all figured out. I am still learning and finding my way every single day. Thinking you're done trying to improve yourself is fatal after all. 

I could literally go on for days. Reflection has that effect on people. But I will end this with a huge thank you for following along my journey. Especially to those who have been with me from day one. I can never say thank you enough. I really do have the most loving, supportive internet friends a girl could ask for. 


Express: Engagement Party Outfit

Wedding season has arrived. I’ve been to one majorly beautiful nuptial this summer and I have two more in the next couple months. I personally love celebrating love. But with love comes the question- what do I wear?!

This month, I have partnered with Express to help discuss what to wear not to the actual wedding but to an event equally as fun- the engagement party! I had so much fun shooting with my girl Jessi Malay (ugh, such a babe) in our outfits of choice. We clearly were on the same page because you can never go wrong with an all black ensemble! 

The rules here change a bit. Weddings range from causal to formal but usually tend to lean towards the formal side. When it comes to an engagement party think more in terms of something you could also translate to a chic night out. My mantra is: mix casual and semi-formal. Bonus is you can definitely repeat these pieces again with different outfits (I'm looking at you bridesmaids dress I wore ONCE). 

The main item to my look is this black maxi dress from Express. I love maxi dresses because they can be dressed up or down to compliment the occasion. You could stop here and look like a million bucks but layering this season will be BIG so I wanted to add more to my look. I paired the maxi with an off shoulder choker top and bag with pom pom details (similar here and here).

Other layering ideas to pair with a simple maxi include:


Dress: Express
Top: Express
Shoes: Express

Thank you Express for partnering with me on this post.
