I’m On A Boat!

So, it’s been a while since I devoted an entire Saturday to drinking, and a little over a week ago we had the pleasure (no really, it was a ton of fun) of cramming two birthdays into one day, both in completely different areas of Los Angeles. Well, one of those happened to be a daytime booze cruise celebrating the birth and general awesomeness of my good friend Raechel! What do you get when you combine 60 people, an open bar, and a party yacht in Marina Del Rey? A DAMN GOOD TIME. Oh, and quite possibly a hangover before 8pm. I’m not a heavy drinker by any means, and Lord knows I’m not 21 anymore! So this was quite the feat. Or “defeat”, however you want to refer to it.

Regardless of how badly I should have napped before heading off to Birthday #2 in Hollywood, Birthday #1 was an awesome time with an amazing group of friends, most of whom it’s been too long since I’ve seen. And when you’re on a boat, it’s only natural to implement a nautical theme. In fact, the invitation read “Dressing in Nautical Attire Encouraged, and Drinking Like A Sailor Required.” Umm…done and done. By everyone…

I had a lot of fun going through my closet and picking something out to wear. I love a good theme, it always adds an extra element of challenge into getting ready! Everything I selected was something I already had on hand, and I think it hit the sailor vibe quite well without overdoing it. I chose to pair my high waisted red midi skirt from ASOS, a basic white crop, and my trusty navy and white nautical sweater for when it cooled down a bit after dark. It was gorgeous boat weather, hitting near 80 degrees in the sunshine, so this combination was perfect! And let’s be honest, how cute are my friends?!? This crew knows how to have a good time and there’s no one I would have rather spent my afternoon with! Cheers to Raechel, and Cheers to an amazing group of people just lovin’ life on a Saturday! :)

…And a Happy New Year!

IMG_1071IMG_1051IMG_1085IMG_1076IMG_1114IMG_1135IMG_1101IMG_1147IMG_1142

So my New Year’s resolution of posting more things to the blog in a timely fashion is obviously off to a great start. So incase anyone still cares about the holidays now that were a third of the way through January, here is what I wore this year on New Years Eve! Probably the only reason I’m even posting it at this point is because this is an outfit that could be worn any time of the year, not just for holiday celebration.

Am I the only one getting old enough to feel like every year having two holidays within a week of each other is overwhelming? I always travel for Christmas, making my grand return to LA a couple days before the new year usually. This year for Christmas, I had a jam-packed schedule at home with family events with a boyfriend in tow, not to mention some airport drama on the way home…so by the time we got home the last thing I wanted to start thinking about was what to do on NYE.

It’s always fun to have a reason to get dressed up and sparkly, but honestly, as I get older I realize that all I REALLY need to kick off the new year is time spent with good friends. So this year, we made our final plans about 7pm the night of, winged it at a bar in West Hollywood with some great friends, and it was awesome. I was toying back and forth between this outfit and another dress, and ultimately wanted to get some use out of this awesome multi-colored sequin top from H&M’s 2014 Holiday collection. Paired with one of my many skater skirts for some girly flare, and my newest black shoe obsession, the Joe’s Jeans “Ali” pump, I was set for some West Hollywood action to ring in the new year.
