Alright, Alright, Alright Black & White | T-Shirt Dress + Ankle-Strap Sandals

Thursday, September 21, 2017


Happy Friday Eve! We've nearly made it to the weekend now, people. This was one of those weeks when I swore that it was Wednesday every day. I also knocked a ceramic bowl out of our cabinet, caught it as it was breaking into a million pieces, and I cut up my hand real bad. (Please do yourself a favor and watch this video right this moment if you don't understand the last part about cutting up my hand real bad.) (If you did get that reference, email me and let's be best friends.)

Do you realize what tomorrow is? Yes, it's Friday. But it's also September 22nd... which means FALL! The season that we all can't stop talking about will finally be upon us! Sadly, even though this is the last official day of summer it's supposed to be in the 80s here next week. That means still no boots and scarves for me :( If you're lucky enough to have autumnal temps in your town, ENJOY! If you're like me and have no clue when it's going to cool off... well, hold on to hope. It's all we've got at times like these.

Hello There Fine Fall-ow | Sweatshirt + Cutoffs + Sneakers

Monday, September 18, 2017


Hey, how's it going in your neck of the woods? Things here in SoCal are still pretty warm. We are just waiting on those fall feelings to hit our fine city. During the days in San Diego it is still hot'ish, but thankfully this weekend the morning chills finally began! Falling asleep and waking up to fresh autumn air coming through the windows is what sweet dreams are made of after all, right? Matt and I even got our new backyard setup all ready to go last night for the first fire of the season and it was gloriously kinda-but-not-really-chilly out. (Side note: whilst getting the firepit prepared we found not one, but two BLACK WIDOWS. Not cool, nature. Very scary, in fact.)

I know at this point you're probably tired of seeing these dang denim shorts. Trust me, I am too. I just want to put them in storage and bust out my fall clothes. But alas, at least the biggest heat waves should be over so we can wear sweaters with our summer clothing and pretend, eh?

Fall Fashion Items I Can't Wait To Wear

Friday, September 15, 2017


I know, I know. You're probably already sick of hearing about fall and it hasn't even officially arrived yet. Therefore, let me apologize in advance because I am far from being over it. I can't help myself every year when September rolls around. The first leaves changing color, the chilly mornings that remind me to stop wearing shorts to sleep and change to cozy leggings, the most delicious hot foods, the beginning of the best holidays of the entire year... and, of course, the deepest and least superficial of all - THE CLOTHES! All my favorite pieces of clothing get taken out of storage and hung back up in my closet, and my heart swells with excitement. Ah, yes. Fall fashion... let me count the ways I love you - literally. Below are 7 of my favorite autumnal outfits and accessories that I am ready to bust out as soon as it drops below 70 degrees. 🍃 🍁 🍂

1. Scarves

Infinity scarves, chunky scarves, and blanket scarves... oh my!

I haven't worn an actual winter coat that's meant to withstand 25-degree temps in years; however, my heavier jackets that I wear November - February suffice as "coats" in my mind.

Obsessing over autumn may make one "unoriginal" in some grumpy peoples' minds but honestly, I do not care in the slightest. It is the best time of the year, and I won't ever stop celebrating its arrival. FALL FOREVER!

Are you over fall already or are you onboard the autumn loving bandwagon?

Wearing White After Labor Day | Sleeveless Blouse + Ripped Hem Jeans + Leopard Flats

Tuesday, September 12, 2017


Hey there! Is it fall yet in your parts? It's still pretty warm in San Diego, hence why I am still wearing sleeveless blouses such as the one in today's post. I am definitely ready to trade in shorts and sandals for sweaters and boots, but that most likely isn't going to happen here for a few more weeks. Oh well, patience is a virtue and all that. Plus, once the temperature does finally drop it'll make it that much sweeter!




White lace sleeveless blouse: Old Navy

GUESS light wash ripped hem straight leg jeans (also seen here, here & here): Macy's
These are pants I've had for years that are meant to be worn as cuffed boyfriend jeans, but I simply unrolled them, and VOILA - they are "on-trend" (blech, that term is cringe-worthy) frayed hem jeans!

Leopard print d'Orsay flats (also seen here, here & here): American Eagle


Urban Expressions vegan turquoise weaved crossbody bag (also seen here, here & here): DSW



Gold hoop earrings: c/o Happiness Boutique
See another of my favorite pair of earrings from Happiness Boutique here.
(And remember: LunaVida readers get 10% off through 9/15 with promo code "lunavidablog" for orders over 19 euros!)

Gold cuff bracelet (also seen here): Old Navy

Gold stretch bracelet (also seen here, here & here): Target



How do you feel about wearing white after Labor Day? It seems like no one cares whether you do nowadays, which is good for me because this lady loves white year-round!

I Avoca-Do | Vegan Love Apparel Tank + Denim Shorts + Sneakers

Friday, September 8, 2017


Happiest of Fridays to you! Do you have any fun weekend plans? I think I'm going to persuade Matt that we need to make a trip to Cinnaholic down in Pacific Beach. They have vegan cinnamon rolls. (Aaand, just like that, my mouth is watering only thinking about them.) So yeah, that is going to happen with our without Matt (not that it'll take anything to convince him, let's be honest). And speaking of vegan, in today's post I am featuring one of my new favorite vegan brands, Vegan Love Apparel. Both tank tops featured below are from them, and they are both (vegan) butter-y soft and light. I can't get enough of them - plus, most importantly, they are 100% animal cruelty-free and eco-responsible! Now that is what I'm talkin' about!
