spanx faux leather leggings

If you are not from California, you might not know that there is a small beef between Southern California, and Northern California. I don’t get it. I never have. I am an Oakland (Northern) California girl all day, but I love me some SoCal. They have better beaches, and weather (and men) #sorrynotsorry. And for all reasons listed, I headed to Malibu recently for a change of scenery.

 I’ll let the photos speak for themselves (with the help of a couple of captions).

(wearing zara camel coat, leopard sweater from nordstorm (VERY SIMILAR), sunnies from nordstrom, SPANX FAUX LEATHER LEGGINGS, ADIDAS NEO CLOUDFOAM)

STAY AT THE SURFRIDER MALIBU

The rooms are nice (and pricey) but the best part is the rooftop lounge.

EAT AT MALIBU FARM
 And get the cauliflower pizza (i added sausage) and frozen rose a.k.a f'rose.

Eatin' crab out in Malibu at Nobu. Thank you Drake for the excellent recommendation!

GO TO ROSENTHAL WINERY 

I can't speak to the actual wine but the photo ops outside alone  are worth a visit

And speaking of photo ops...
There are plenty in this beautiful beach side town. I'll be back. 

But in the meantime, I’m headed up, up and away again this week to a place that requires a passport, and barely has WiFi. Who wants to take a wild guess where I’ll be?

BIG BIRDIE

 
I don't know if this is something I'd wear in my real life, but I was going to the Museum of Ice cream (which is very pink) and I needed something that wouldn't clash, but would also stand out. Insert grey Big Bird bomber here. What do you guys think? Should this be a one time wear (it was very inexpensive) or can I get away with it IRL?

wearing: FLUFFY FUR COAT $32, top from nordstrom, banana jeans, CHARLES DAVID CHIEF MOTO BOOTIES (HIGH TOP VERSION), shinola watch (VERY SIMILAR)

BLACK + WHITE + COCKTAIL

I hate shopping. Yep, you read that correctly. I HATE SHOPPING. Especially in a store, and especially when I'm shopping for something specific.  It's a totally different story if I get an email that says "Take an extra 30% off" and I click through and I buy a random sweater. That, I quite enjoy. 
But when I find out that I am going to a gala in less than 2 weeks, I don't want to have to go shopping for a dress because of course with my luck, I won't find one. 
Lucky for me I have a closet full of things just sitting there waiting for the perfect occasion to make their debut. And the occasion for this half-cape black and white cocktail dress was the 100 BLACK MEN Gala. So the lesson is, when people tell you don't buy it if you don't need it, don't listen. Because you'll be struggling and stressing trying to find the right dress or right top or right shoes, when you could be stress free in 6 months or 12 months shopping in your own closet. 
Now if you can't afford it, please don't buy it—that's a whole 'nother story :) Otherwise, happy shopping!

wearing: dress from bloomingdales by halo (GOOD OPTIONSIMILAR), chirsitain louboutin heels, aldo bag, DAVID YURMAN OVAL LINK BRACELET, shinola watch (SIMILAR)
