There's just something about wearing a cape that makes me feel so fabulous and this jacket/dress situation was certainly no exception. I fell in love with the clean lines as soon as I put it on. I styled it with a matching navy blue gold button skirt, a leopard tote and nude pumps for a look that was equal parts business and pleasure. 

Do you love capes as much as I do?

This look is winter on the top and summer on the bottom. Only in Southern California could you get away with such a thing in the middle of January! I paired a comfy poncho with distressed denim, a white t shirt, a silver choker and strappy pink sandals for a look that was casual yet put together.

If you follow my Instagram, you already know that I've been on a total faux fur binge lately. I just can't help it. This luxe fabric not only keeps you really warm, but it also just makes every outfit look instantly more luxurious. I'm totally obsessed. I paired my grey jacket with a nude body con and studded pumps. 

I hope you had a great week.

Happy New Year!
When the temperature drops, it can sometimes be a struggle to style outfits that are warm and stylish. Last week, I was in New York City and I couldn't help but notice that during this time of year function wins over fashion and most people walk around looking like eskimos in puffer coats that cover their bodies from head to toe. Luckily, southern California's "cold" temperatures still lend itself to styling fun outfits. One thing that I've learned is that layers are your friend and playing with different fabrics and textures is an easy way to make your functional look a bit more fashionable. 

For today's post, I paired a flowing maxi (dress worn as a) skirt with strappy sandals, a white turtleneck and a matching white pea coat. To put an east coast friendly spin on this outfit you could swap out the sandals for black over the knee boots and layer 2 (or even 3!) pairs of sheer or opaque nylons underneath for extra warmth. You can also layer a tank or an extra turtleneck under your top, depending on how cold it is.

How To Add Volume To Flat Hair

When it comes to adding volume to three-day-old, lifeless hair. I always rely on one product for instant results - dry shampoo! Dove's Detox and Purify Dry Shampoo has become an instant favorite because it adds bounce without leaving behind build-up or a watery finish, and it smells like a dream! Today, I'm sharing my 5 easy steps to take your hair from flat to fabulous. Step 1: Brush out all the knots in your hair and section it off into one inch pieces at and around the crown. Step 2: Spray Dove's Dry Shampoo at the root of each section and let dry for 1-2 minutes. Step 3: Massage roots until powder is no longer visible. Step 4: Tease hair using a backcombing technique all around the roots and crown (where dry shampoo was sprayed). Step 5. Curl hair in small/medium sections using a one or two inch wand. And there you have it, instantly glamorous hair! So next time you're thinking of washing your hair I challenge you to skip a wash and try out Dove's Detox and Purify Dry Shampoo instead. Be sure to let me know how this technique worked for you!
