.Friday Favs.

Happy Black Friday everyone! I hope your belly's are nice and full and you had an amazing Thanksgiving with your friends and family! Mine was perfect, we spent the first half of the day with Tyler's family and the second half with mine. By the end of the night we could barely move, that's the sign of a great Thanksgiving:) I thought this week, I would try something different and do a little recap on some odds and ends that I've been loving lately. Truth be told, I have been extremely sick so we didn't get a chance to take any pictures this week! I'm finally starting to feel human again, thank god! I hope you enjoy :)

A couple weeks ago Tyler & I stayed down in Coronado with my family for an event. I was really excited because we were going to have breakfast at my favorite place, The Hotel Del Coronado. If you've never been you have to check it out! It's the most magical hotel I've ever been in. I can't even put into words how much I love it :) Every year they release a collectible Christmas ornament. We decided to start a new tradition & picked up our first one! I can't wait to put it on the tree.

The other day when we getting ready to go out I started playing around with my jewelry and fell completely in the love with this combination! My favorite part is the Venus FlyTrap necklace from Jcrew doubled as an adorable bracelet!

Well, once again I was at Target browsing the isles, when I cam across this little gem. They got me with the cute packaging. Why is everything cuter when it's miniature?! Anyways, it's not the most moisturizing but I've quickly fallen in love . It takes me back, because I always used vaseline as lip gloss when I was little and the slight rose smell is lovely. For $1.99 you should totally go pick it up!

I don't know about you, but as soon as it gets anywhere close to the holidays I bust out Home Alone 1 & 2! On Wednesday night we watched Home Alone 2, started our Christmas decorating, and cooked/baked for Thanksgiving. It was one of those perfect cozy nights :)

Lastly, I want to talk about my everyday favorite, Tyler! I have to give him a shout out because he has been such an amazing boyfriend this week while I've been sick. I feel blessed that I get to spend everyday with him :)

XOXO, Kayla

.Business Casual.

Dress, Forever 21(no longer online) Similar// Blazer, Nordstrom (old) Similar// Boots, Steve Madden// Knee Highs, Forever 21// Sunnies, Gucci (REALLY old) Almost Identical // Watch, Kate Spade// Necklaces, Jcrew & Bauble Bar//Bracelets, Jcrew (sold out) Similar & Forever21

My day job is accounting for a construction company, which typically means sitting at a desk for eight hours a day! In order to make it through the day when I am shopping I look for pieces that are cute, professional and most of all comfortable. I've found over the years that dresses are the best answer. They look great with cardigans, vests or blazers depending on how I feel that day. Today I choose to style one of my favorite dresses (yes, leopard again) with a boyfriend blazer, knee highs and boots. If I am being honest, I would probably swap the knee highs out with tights for the office. All around comfortable, classy and if the boyfriend calls to meet up for happy hour I can go straight from work without thinking twice. This outfit is a winner in my book!

Jeans, Target// Blouse, Similar// Vest, Old Navy// Shoes, (Aldo, not online) Similar// Necklaces, Jcrew & Similar// Watch, Kate Spade// Sunnies, Anthro

I am such a huge sucker for anything that's covered in polka dots. I've been noticing lately when I go shopping I somehow end up with a dressing room full of dots! I love the ladylike feel they give your outfit. I can't even begin to describe to you the pure joy I felt when I found these pants in Target. I felt like I had hit the wardrobe jackpot! I'm pretty sure I did a happy dance in the dressing room & ran to the cash register. They go with just about anything and I have to stop myself from wearing them everyday. They're also great quality and extremely comfortable. For just $22.99 you can't go wrong! I suggest you go to your nearest Target and pick these babies up :)

.Rain Boots & Bunnies.

Sweater, (Old, Forever 21) Similar// Dress worn as Skirt (Forever 21), Loving this one// Rain Boots, TJ Maxx (not online) Similar // Purse, Forever 21 (last fall) Similar// Sunnies, Ray-Ban// Watch, Kate Spade// Bracelets, Hendri Bendel & Jcrew (sold out) Similar

One of the pros of living in sunny San Diego, the amazing weather. One of the downfalls, I hardly get to wear my winter clothes. I know I really shouldn't complain about year round sun & temps that rarely drop below 75, but this girl LOVES sweater weather!! I love nothing more than scarves, gloves and most of all rain boots! So when the weather man mentioned that we would be getting a little rain this weekend, I ran to my closet & pulled out my favorite rain boots. These are probably my favorite TJ Maxx find, ever. I was also excited to get out my favorite bunny sweater! I think it was the perfect outfit for a crisp fall day!

XOXO, Kayla

Pants, H&M (not online)Similar// Chambray, Old Navy (on sale!)// Heels, Similar// Necklaces, Bauble Bar & Jcrew (old) love this// Watch, Kate Spade// Bracelets, Forever 21 & Jcrew, (sold out) Similar

I honestly can't remember a time in my life when I wasn't obsessed with leopard print. I have my mom to blame for this, my brother and I used to joke that we think she wanted to be an actual leopard, ha. So naturally when I was in H&M a couple weeks back and spotted these pants I knew I had to try them on. They are like a little piece of heaven! They feel like you are wearing your PJ's, which I don't know about you, but I LOVE! They also go with just about anything! They can be dressed up for a night out on the town or toned down with a cute V neck or sweater for work.

I choose to style them today with my beloved chambray button up, lots & lots of jewels & my first red cup of the season! I love this look in particular because I can wear it the office all day and then head to happy hour without having to go home. These pants are going to be on heavy rotation and I have a feeling you'll be seeing them again!

XOXO, Kayla

.Fall Floral.

Blouse, Target //Skirt (REALLY old) Similar// Necklace, Similar // Booties, (On sale online!) Target// Sunnies, Anthro// Purse (Last Christmas), Similar// Watch, Kate Spade// Bracelets, Jcrew & Forever 21

Last week when I was doing my daily weekly Target run, I came across this blouse. I immediately fell in love and knew I had to have it! I threw it in my cart and ran to the dressing room. The rich colors and peplum had me thinking it would be the perfect addition to my fall wardrobe. The $14.99 price tag convinced me! I want to let you in on a little secret, it's from the girls department! Can you believe it?! I learned this trick from some of my girlfriends. They are making clothes so much bigger these days & the price point is about half what you would pay in the women's section. I recommend next time you're shopping to take a look!

XOXO, Kayla
