Happy almost weekend Chic Readers!! I’m so excited to be spending the weekend with my family down in Southern California! We’ll also be doing some very fun wedding things while there ;)!

I love neutrals that aren’t just black (even though I love black so much) and this light camel colored coat just does it for me! It’s chic and super classic which is great because I know it’ll be in my closet for many years to come!

If you’re looking for a neutral colored coat J.Crew has some really beautiful options right now. This one is very similar to mine! I also love this coat so much and think that the removable faux fur hood trim detail is genius!! I almost bought it but then decided I really didn’t need it since I have plenty of coats :). Another classic option is this pretty little number.

Love this quote that is all over Pinterest and decided to make my own picture with this now famous saying for this edition of ‘Inspired Wednesday’!

Keeping it short and sweet with some glitter nail polish (courtesy of my pinky finger), diamonds and a beautiful quote!

Stay inspired, always!!

Palm Trees

Cardigan: Philosophy/ Dress: Zara/ Tights: Merona/ Belt: Forever21/ Booties: Sam Edelman /Rings: TomTom, Vintage/ Hat: Anthropologie (last season but this one is cute too)/ Sunglasses: Celine/ Bag: Badgley Mischka/ Lips: MAC ‘Russian Red’

Sometimes on a rainy day you just need a fun outfit to make you instantly happy! This outfit is the very reason why I love fashion so much…you can wear whatever you feel like wearing and make it fun, funky, elegant, silly, chic basically whatever you want!

On a very dark and gloomy day I felt like adding some palm trees into my life/onto my body as well as a thin cheetah belt, a comfy long cashmere cardigan, some fringe booties and a cute dark green hat with cheetah trim!

I love this outfit mainly because it’s just fun! You would not believe how many people complimented me when I wore this to work which is so flattering but funny because it honestly only took me about 2 minutes to style and put on!

Oh the beauty of fun dressing/fashion/art!

Happy weekend Chic Readers!!! Hope you all had a great week and are ready to relax and kick back this weekend…and by kick back I bet that actually means holiday shopping and events for lots of you ;).

This windowpane print silk dress is one of my faves. It’s comfy, chic and versatile. In the spring I can wear it just as is and in the fall/winter I will add a pair of tights/leggings and a coat and I’m good to go! I paired it with my black and white striped heels (that I’m obsessed with) and think that the mix of prints adds interest and makes the look pretty fun!

Inspired Wednesday woo!!! If you’re a DVF lover you will be jealous of this post! So keep reading…. :)

A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of attending a talk at Google given by  Diane von Furstenberg. She’s the creator of the oh-so-famous wrap dress and a fashion/designer icon! I have a few of her dresses and love them!

The whole experience was awesome but what I enjoyed most is that she’s very intelligent, humble, eloquent and funny in real life! Plus she’s a boss! She literally built an empire by the time she was 30! #respect #inspiration

Also, she seems to be someone who doesn’t deal with BS which is refreshing. She says what she wants and tells it like it is.

She talked about her new memoir out now titled, “the Woman I Wanted to be.”  I picked up a copy and started reading it before seeing her in person and it’s good!  I was crying in the first few chapters and found her story and journey to be quite fascinating.

During her talk she shared some interesting stories, gave some life advice and answered audience asked questions.

In real life she’s very fashionable (which isn’t a surprise) but look at her legs! She was showing off her stems, and rocking it, like it was nobody’s business which I loved! I can only hope to have legs like that when I’m her age ;)!

After her talk she did a quick book signing which was pretty neat.

Keep doing your thing Diane!

Pretty Plaid

Coat: J.Crew/ Sweater: Helmut Lang/ Jeans: AG/ Bag: Chanel/ Necklace: Nordstrom/ Heels: YSL (similar here)/ Sunglasses: Celine/ Lips: YSL ’09 Rouge Laque’

Remember how I was just talking about houndstooth being classic and that plaid totally reminds me of fall & winter primarily? Well make that a navy and red plaid coat and I’m all about it! This was my favorite coat purchase from last year and I decided to pair it with my favorite bag purchase of this year, which I think is a pretty good looking combo! I’ve always loved the color red and am now really into navy (my love for it has grown in the past few years). It’s such a great neutral color without being boring. It’s definitely time to start wearing your plaid pieces…’tis the season!
