New York Minute: My Quick Trip to the City and What I learned at Instagram

As some of you may know from following me on instagram, I recently went to New York for a 4-day trip and spent a few hours at Facebook/Instagram HQ. I had so much fun meeting other bloggers and learning more about the platform we all use daily! I have been getting DM's nonstop since I posted my visit on my stories and wanted to condense all of my advice into a post for everyone :) First, though, a little about my look:

Cozying up to a New Season: How I'm Prepping my Wardrobe for Fall

Los Angeles isn't exactly known for cool, crisp fall weather but....it actually gets a little chilly over here sometimes.  Even though I'm not buying coats and scarves, I'll always love a good chunky knitwear piece and typically invest in one or two each season. I've been very focused on brighter colors this season. Maybe it's a reflection of my mood, but I just can't seem to bring myself to buy anything in a neutral color. I think this is because I've realized the statement pieces I wear over and over again are in bolder hues. I still think it's important to buy black basics (like these bike shorts and this bodysuit) every season, as we all typically reach for these pieces again and again. I linked some more budget friendly options below, which are especially useful if live/plan on visiting somewhere that has actual fall/winter weather!

Running Late with Net-A-Porter

My instagram bio doesn't lie, I really am always running late. I have been actively working on trying to be better for the last few months, but I think it might just be hardwired into my DNA. If you're like me, this jacket is the perfect statement piece. The colorful fringe and unique embroidered details make it the perfect colorful yet fall-appropriate wardrobe addition.

THINK PINK: My Surprising Favorite Color for Fall

It's not exactly an original statement to say your favorite color is pink, but mine definitely is. I never expected so many of my fall purchases to be pink but still feel seasonally- appropriate. I realize this could be partly due to the fact that I live in Los Angeles, but I received so many compliments  on this dress (from New Yorkers) when I was at Fashion Week.

NYFW OUTFIT DIARY: DREAM DRESS

This dress is, without doubt, one of the best things in my closet right now. I will definitely be rewearing it to a non-NYFW event in the near future.  I know the head to toe red look was most popular last fall, but I still think it works if you keep your accessories neutral.  For those of you with formal events coming up I would highly recommend anything created by the STAUD brand. Their pieces are beautiful, elegant, and (most importantly) not crazy expensive.

Band Tee Babe: My Collection of Band Tees & How to Start Your Own

I know I've posted about this before, but my band tee collection is the #1 thing I get DM's about!As I've mentioned before, I don't get them from one specific place. I'm on the hunt constantly- at home in L.A., traveling and pretty much whenever I'm online shopping.

On The Road: Recap of My Recent Travels

I recently took a road trip from Los Angeles (my home) to Portland, Oregon with my sister and had an amazing time. I can't say I ever got super dressed up (except for tea at the Rotunda, pictured above). My wardrobe mostly consisted of leggings, t-shirts, sweatshirts and the occasional pair of jeans but comfort is KEY when you're driving through the middle of nowhere for hours on end.
