Cali Bound!

IMG_0927blog 13blog 14blog 15blog11

Hi all, Happy Easter!

So, as some of you may already know, Wayne and I have birthday’s just NINE days apart! And each year we like to do a little getaway as our “birthday presents” to one another, since traveling and experiencing new places is our favorite thing to do together!

Tonight, we’re off to San Francisco and I couldn’t be more excited! We’re headed to a nine day “Cali Roadtrip,” just Wayne and I!

We’re site seeing in San Fran, drinking vino through Napa Valley, driving down the PCH and cannot wait to see Big Sur (addicted to “Big Little Lies” with Reese!), partying with amazing friends in Venice Beach / Malibu and then finishing the trip in Downtown LA! My love for California grows each and every time I visit, now just need to convince Wayne to move!!! ūüôā

I frequently get questions on what I wear on long flights, so I’ve linked my favorite travel outfit staples below! ¬†I think when you’re traveling it’s very important to have key pieces which are comfortable, layered and still fashionable!

Sweatshirt: H&M Ruffle Sweatshirt ($9.99!!!!! Trust Me you with thank me!!!)

Leggings:¬†Express Leather Scuba Leggings¬†(they stretch¬†and they’re comfy, all while giving your ‘athleisure’ look some edge!)

Jacket: Blank NYC Suede Moto Jacket (I always travel with layers, because I’m ALWAYS freezing or having a heatstroke!) ALSO: 30% OFF with code: FRIENDS¬†

Loafers: Steve Madden Jill Loafer (best Gucci Dupe I’ve seen!!!!) I can’t find the floral embroidered online with the faux fur, I just purchased them in store at Lord & Taylor for 30% OFF! Also, L&T is having their Friends & Family sale now through Tuesday, April 18, 2017. ¬† You get 30% almost everything, and 10% off cosmetics and fragrance with code: FRIENDS.¬†

Sunnies: Marc Jacobs 58mm Aviator Sunnies (30% off with code: FRIENDS)

Eye Mask: Sephora Collection Pearl Eye Mask РPerfecting & Brightening (These are heavenly, only $5, and no need to rinse afterwards. Just rub in circular motion under your eyes the remaining serum!)

Handbag: Celine Mini Luggage Black Tote (the greatest Christmas present I’ve ever received, thank you Wayne! :)) Of course you need a large tote to carry all your travel essentials!

Face Hydration: Evian mineral Water Face Spray – I love having something in my bag once I get off the flight to give my face a fresh glow! I use this throughout the day, everyday!!

See you all when I return, I’ll be posting some really good content for Spring and Summer fashion!

Xx, Creme

Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween, to all my readers! This weekend, my friends and I went upstate to New Paltz, NY, to pack in as many “fall” activities you can in a weekend! The weather was absolutely perfect – a perfect crisp fall weekend and unbeatable fall foliage.

We went apple and pumpkin picking at Dubois Farms in Highland, NY before venturing off to some local vineyards.

My first outfit of the weekend was spent for apple and pumpkin picking, and I have to admit I didn’t really pack appropriately when it came to my footwear. ¬†For some reason, I wasn’t thinking we would be walking around in dirt and mud, so I packed my suede block heeled booties; luckily, we didn’t run into too much mud!

Love the casual feel of my outfit, the long-line hooded sweater was purchased last week from, you’ll never guess where… Forever 21… for under $23!! Great find, and the long sweaters are very “in” this season, my wardrobe feels like I time hopped back to middle school with the chokers, long sweaters, flared jeans, etc.

My blockheel suede booties, were also a crazy deal, for ONLY$28 and they’re super comfy! Lulus.com has unbelievable deals on gorgeous boots!

Tee: N-sale purchase; Lush Deep-V Neck Tee

Malibu Magic!

So, many of you have asked where you can get this L’atiste Odyssey floral maxi, that I wore to Nobu Malibu, which I am head over heels about both! Everything at Nobu exceeded all expectations I had for this establishment:¬†the food was amazing, the service was great and you truly cannot beat the view!

This dress I am wearing a small, it’s true to size (it would look a little better if my tata’s were a little larger, but hey, what can ya do?!) ¬† It was a little long on me, but with my favorite Steve Madden Melina heeled booties, it just grazes the floor. ¬†This dress is so perfect for fall and spring. ¬†It wraps and leaves little to the imagination with the low plunge neckline and open slit in the front. ¬†When I saw this at the most adorable boutique in Charleston, SC, I knew I had to have it.

Similar dress style here

Sunnies: Dolce & Gabbana 

Clutch: Similar, here, here

Necklaces: Diamond Pendant, Pearl Choker

Lips: SALE! Bonton has 10% off all cosmetics and fragrances including my favorite,¬†Clinique Long Last Soft Matte Lipstick in “Suede”¬†SHOPPING CODE: OCTFF25F016, FREE SHIPPING CODE: FREESHIP75

Nails: Essie ‘Perfectly Picked’ (my newest favorite polish!) It’s the perfect neutral for any season!!
