Red All Over

In case you can’t tell from these photos, my favorite trend right now is RED! I usually am all for the monochrome and tend toward neutrals but something about this trend is so fun. I haven’t quite made it to the all red ensemble but there are some red pants I’ve got my eye on ;). These red boots have been on repeat and will be for awhile. The pointed toe is great for elongating […]

LA Lights

  One of my favorite things about LA is all the fun places to visit. Having grown up there I have lots of great memories walking around the city and the museums are among my favorites. These lights in front of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) are an iconic LA landmark and I couldn’t resist the chance to take my non-LA native hubby there ;). These white boots have proved to be […]

Black Friday Sales Scoop

  Black Friday is here and while I’m not an advocate for overspending or fighting the crowds, there are some great deals to take advantage of from the comfort of your home. Below are some of my picks for what to pick up for those fashionable friends and family who have been lucky enough to make it on your list ;). Zara As you may have noticed Zara is one of my go-to stores for […]

Fall Favorites

Fall is my favorite fashion season for so many reasons! I love layers, leather, and dark lips. I’ve been wearing this striped sweater on repeat since I got it. It checks all the boxes – neutral colors and great for layering. If you don’t have a leather jacket, I highly recommend investing in one. Zara makes a great quality but affordable option as does Topshop. I’ll link some options at different price points below. Growing […]

Stilettos and Stripes

This outfit brings together so many things that make me happy – a great leather jacket, navy blue, a little pattern mixing, and some fierce glasses. Sometimes you just need a feel good outfit and this definitely checks that box for me. For fall, when the temperatures are volatile, it’s all about the layers. This long-sleeve shirt and jacket provide warmth in the morning and evening when it’s cooler but I paired it with open-toe […]

Sunset on Summer

Yes, I know it’s October. Tomorrow is Halloween. But it’s been awhile since I’ve written a new post. If you follow me on social media I have been posting there but I haven’t written a new blog post for a few months. These photos are from my husband’s and my 12 year anniversary weekend getaway back in September. We needed it. We have a lot of things competing for our time these days. This year […]

Review of the Summer 2017 Box of Style

Special Edition: Album Photo Shoot Part 2

My last post was part one of our photo shoot for The Asking’s new album. My hubby and I have a duo called The Asking and we’re releasing a new album! If you missed Part 1 of the photo shoot, be sure to check it out! For the second look for our album photo shoot I chose this vintage dress from Saks that my mom had from her pageant days. It has the perfect 60’s/70’s […]

Special Edition: Album Photo Shoot Part 1

Over the past few months the duo my husband and I have, The Asking, have been hard at work on a new album. It’s been difficult to juggle both the album and The House Blend so I’ve had to post less. That’s frustrating¬†for me because I love working on this blog and creating cool content! But I did have the chance to curate this beautiful photoshoot with my fabulous photographer, Amie Akers, for the album […]

Spring Shoe Edit

When it finally starts to get warm here I relish the chance to pull out my espadrilles and suede styles. These are my top picks for their fresh looks for the spring season. Each of these pairs incorporates a trend while still being very versatile. The mule trend is going strong and I love these from Marc Fisher! The block heel keeps them comfy while still giving me some height ;). I also love the […]
