To celebrate Nicole by Nicole Miller's 10 year anniversary I have partnered with JCPenney to style this casual fall look. Over the years, Nicole by Nicole Millers's line has evolved from girl next door chic to being a one stop shop for any girl on the go, no matter what her style preference is. What I love most about the collection today is the juxtaposition between feminine and edgy. The bright colors, graphic prints and form-fitting silhouettes are feminine while the leather detailing and bold use of metallic hardware make things just a bit more edgy. My outfit is a perfect example! Since the weather is still super hot in LA, I paired leggings with faux leather detailing and a silky purple blouse. I added in a structured black shoulder bag with gold hardware and matching gold pumps. I love that this is casual enough for a weekend look or easily dressed up with a tailored blazer for a day at the office!
A big thank you to Nicole by Nocole Miller for partnering with me on this post and to JCPenney!

I found this gorgeous dress on ASOS and the beautiful blue roses grabbed my attention instantly. It's just so beautiful, elegant and perfect for summer. I paired it with white pumps and a pink and gold bag. I am unappoligetically obsessed with full skirts. Sorry guys!
Are there trends that you're obsessed with!?
Thanks so much for visiting me! I hope your week is going great so far!

It doesn't get more classic than a form-fitting pencil skirt. This used to be my go-to when I worked in an office but these days, I don't wear pencil skirts nearly enough. I always love the way I feel in them though. The way they hug a womans body to create the ultimate ladylike silhouette. I paired this mustard skirt with a black off the shoulder top to keep my look modern and on-trend for summer.
Are you a fan of this sleek style too? Thanks so much for visiting!

Images Taken At Opus Hotel
As if two post are really enough to recap my Vancouver adventure. Bare with me as I try my best. Part two of my Vancouver trip consisted of exploring Whistler's stunning mountain tops, meandering around the quaint neighborhood of Yaletown, an evening boat ride through Olympic Village and moving over a few blocks to the charming Opus Hotel. They go by the slogan "Uniquely Stylish, Always Fresh". Opus Hotel is uniquely stylish, indeed. From the colorful rooms, to the retro candies that they leave on your pillow, Opus has thought of every. last. detail. When Enocha and I arrived to our room, we were delighted to find airheads on our pillows. "Airheads!? Do they even make those anymore?" The answer is yes and we savored every last bite. When we told the hotel what and amazing idea it was they said that they wanted candy that made people feel nostalgic. Mission accomplished. As I munched on my sugar taffy, I thought of the fondest childhood memories and waltzed around my room with glee. This is just one of many details that sets Opus apart from other hotels. However, another detail, not to be missed, are the heated floors. I know this seems like an unnecessary luxury, but you'll have to tell that to my weary toes as they step out of the shower in wee hours of the morning. It is pure bliss. The room and bathroom give you the ultimate vacation experience, but should you decide that you need to venture out for food or libations, the Opus Bar is a happening place to be. Whether it's for evening cocktails or coffee and a (mouthwateringly good) donut in the AM you won't be sad that you did.
This hotel wouldn't just be one that I recommend, it is one that I encourage. Go to Opus to explore Vancouver and to release your inner child. Relax, unwind and send your mind on the ultimate vacation. You won't regret it.
I hope you enjoyed this travel post!
