Blanket Scarf!(Under $25)

11 Nov

If you buy only one scarf this Fall/Winter…..let it be an oversized plaid blanket scarf. The print is bold enough to add a nice pop of color to any outfit without being overbearing. Blanket scarves can be worn in various ways with t-shirts, tucked into coats or over even a dress. They’re cozy and so quintessentially Fall.

Modcloth has the perfect plaid scarf and it comes in different colors. Priced at $24.99, it’s a great way to update your cold weather wardrobe without breaking the bank!

Have a great weekend,

XO- Journey

Aspen Trip!

11 Jan

Happy Monday everyone! I got such an overwhelming response to my Aspen pictures that I’m going to share some more here. It was the first trip to Aspen for my wife and I but definitely not our last. I feel like the way we planned it was perfect. We landed in Denver and rented a car and drove to Aspen, which is one of the most beautiful stretches of snow capped mountains I’ve ever seen. The drive took 3.5 hours but flew by as we got lost in all the scenery. Once we arrived in Aspen we stayed 4 days which is a nice amount of time to see the sights and partake in activities. I really loved ice skating but the ultimate bucket list check off was snowmobiling deep into the Aspen mountains for hours. We even saw moose!!!!! As usual, we ate our way through the town- Aspen is known for their strong culinary game and  were not let down once. Everything we ate was amazing! And as far as scenery goes, everywhere we looked was straight off of a post card. It was breathtaking to say the least.

I keep getting asked “Is aspen expensive?” Expensive would be an understatement! It is off the charts crazy expensive from the hotels, to activities, to shopping, to dining. When places are this astronomical in price, a once in a lifetime visit will usually suffice, but there was something so magical about Aspen that I will go back and overspend, because frankly, it was worth it! I suggest everybody visit this gem during the winter months!

Fall Trends Part 1! Pop Of Print!

1 Sep

Happy 1st of September everybody!!!!!! September, for most fashionistas is synonymous with Fall fashion!!!!!!!  I get so excited when September rolls around every year (although I live in Sunny southern California and it’s usually STILL Summer weather around this time) There are SO many fabulous Fall trends that I can’t wait to rock!! I will be sharing them all with you in my Fall trends series starting today with POP- pop of print!  You all have heard me talk about how much I love a POC- pop of color in an outfit, well I also love a pop of print!!!!! In the fall, I especially love a pop of animal print rrrrrrrrrrrrrr!    I am an animal print lover but I never over do it, there  is a thin line between chic and TACKY, so don’t go too crazy with it.

*If you prefer more animal print, like a dress or a jacket, try to go solid on everything else to keep the balance in your look!

Phillip Lim For Target LookBook!!!!!!!

14 Aug

Unless you’ve been living under a fashion rock, you KNOW about the upcoming Phillip Lim and Target collaboration (If not, click HERE for more info)  you must check out the pictures below. Target unveiled the lookbook for the collection and I’m sharing my FAVORITES with you!  Like I mentioned in my previous post about this collection, I am ALL ABOUT the accessories!  The scarves and bags are pretty amazing and there is an almost identical version of the Pashli bag for $35!!!!!!

I get sooooo excited about these designer collaborations because it’s really a great way for the everyday fashionista to get her hands on designer pieces, and it brings  high-end designers into every home.  I hear different opinions on this topic sometimes and thought I’d share my opinion.  I hold a firm the belief that it’s great all the way around from designer to consumer.  Of course nothing in these collaborations is “handmade” or made with the best material money can buy, but sometimes it’s NOT about spending the most money!  True fashion lovers know that at the end of the day, fashion is about design and ideas- a particular designer’s artistic spin on a piece of clothing or an accessory.  We pay to wear this art and to make personal statements with it! These collaborations use affordable and more accessible materials and mass produce the pieces to come down to a low price point, but other than that you are STILL purchasing a piece of the designer’s art -in this case Phillip Lim spent months brainstorming and sketching this collection-and that my friends IS FASHION!!!!!! As a lover of high- end and low-end fashion, I feel that mixing is the best way to go! I never buy a piece simply because of the designer label and never pass up a piece simply because of the non designer label! Basically, I will wear Louboutins with a Forever21 dress!!!!!  In other words- if I love it, I buy it and you should too!

Don’t forget to mark your calendars!!!!!!! September 15th!
