Cozy in Calvin
January 13, 2017
Hello long weekend!
Most of you probably have fun weekend trips planned, but I am over here excited to cozy up and take it easy! I guess you could say I am that one friend who is the grandma of the group.
I shot this look in Utah a couple of weeks ago and unfortunately just sharing it now, but with how the weather is treating us here in LA, I think I could wear this look this weekend! It’s a been a bit chilly.
For some reason, there is nothing I love more than seeing a thin hooded sweatshirt layered with a nice long jacket. Yes, on both woman and men! I do it when I can here in LA, but when I am home in Utah, this look is my go-to! And of course, when the hair hasn’t been washed, I am all about hats! Hides the hair mess and added a great touch to the look.
Anyway, have fun this weekend everyone! Stay warm and safe

Black is the new Black

Once upon a time in a winter wonderland, there was a young woman who arose out of bed at the crack of dawn to set out on an adventure. She thought twice about making the journey, but because she is trying to work hard towards her goal, she knew that she could not go back to snuggling up in her warm bed. The sun was rising, the wind was blowing, and in her apple red jeep the temperature read TEN DEGREES. Driving for miles, her excitement to get to her destination grew and grew. She pulled up and was more than thrilled to see her brown haired beautiful friend! Her friend whipped out her camera and said “we just need to make it to the top of that little hill”, so they set on their journey. The young woman was not prepared. She instantly knew that her leather skirt, ankle booties, and a thin turtleneck were not going to play in her favor. The two made it half way up the hill, and then it happened, the young woman slipped and fell. Not only did she fall, but she was holding holding onto her brown haired friend, so her friend fell as well! They both were in trouble. After multiple falls, bare hands and knees in the snow, and no way to warm up, they finally made it to the top. Miserably cold, they tried to laugh it off, and capture the beauty of Utah’s winter mornings…
Yes. The young woman in the story is me. Yes, the brown haired beauty is Roxana. And yes, this really did happen!
Good thing these images turn out to be masterpieces! You’ll never get anything less than that with Roxanna!
Ps. No matter how many amazing pieces I may or may not have in my closet, I always end up wearing all black. It is a problem!

The Ultimate Bomber

Do you know why I love LA so much? Because there are so many creative people here! I stepped out of my comfort zone this past weekend and met up with an unbelievably creative human named Tommy. I came across his profile on Instagram and was immediately in love with the work he creates. We ended up connecting, and next thing you know, we are on a rooftop in Downtown LA picking each other’s brains and enjoying the view every way we looked!
The winter here in Los Angeles is different from the Utah winter that I am used to. I never thought that a baggy dress, knee-high booties, and some sort of statement jacket would be my “go-to” look this winter season…Some may call that boring, but hey, this look gets lots of compliments! No one hates those.
Wherever you are in the world, what’s going to be your “go-to” winter look?! Please share. I need some outfit inspo!

Mmmm mmm mmm, today’s look has got me feeling like a school girl! Well..I guess only the bottom half of my look! Today I am rocking the mini denim skirt and knee-high boots. All I need to do is throw my hair in two pig tails and…BOOM…school girl, right?! If I wanted the head to toe school girl look, I would throw on a white button up shirt, but instead, I shimmied into my favorite (and such a classic) Calvin Klein graphic tee.
For some reason, when I see a guy OR even a girl wearing anything Calvin, I am immediately obsessed with their look. Why? I don’t know. But there is something very attractive about a guy when he wears a nice crisp white Calvin tee styled nicely.
Who is with me? ow ow!
Anyway, because I am keeping this look very monochromatic and dark, I felt like it needed a slight edge. That is where my little choker comes into play. It’s not much, but it is just enough to give my Calvin look the edginess it needs!
What do you think?
Choker, or no choker?
Now, this is where I would usually throw my “add a pop of color to the lips” comment, but you all already know to do that by now. 🙂

Off the Shoulder
October 5, 2016
You guys! I am currently DYING to be living back in Utah right now! I took a quick trip back to Salt Lake City this past weekend just so I could take multiple drives through the mountains to look at all of the amazing colors. Thank goodness I took one of my BFF’s to capture the gorgeousness! I can honestly say that the scenery of these photos stole the show. 🙂
This top (which is on sale) is my first off the shoulder top. My friend Taylor rocks it ALL the time, so I decided to jump on her boat try the same thing! This shirt, like most of my clothing, is versatile. Wear it casually like I have done below. If you’re not a fan of mini skirts, wear it with some distressed overalls and tall booties! Of course, you can dress it up and wear it with dark denim and some nice pointed toe pumps! Boom. You’re ready for a night out on the town! Don’t forget to play dress up and lather yourself with some fun necklaces. That will definitely tie your look all together.
What do I love most about this look? One word. TARGET! Yep, you heard it right. Both the top and skirt are from Target! That place will eventually be the death of me…I know it. But until that happens, you can find me at Target burning a hole in my wallet.

Simple is my new thing. Nothing about a black tee, dark jeans (possibly distressed), and some pumps shouts boring to me…but for those of you who think its boring, I threw on a bomber to try to give my look a little somethin!
This shoot took place a little bit ago and for some reason I never shared! Why am I sharing it with you today?
It’s totally making me crave Utah’s Fall weather!
Thank goodness I get to hop on a plane tonight and enjoy the colorful leaves and crisp air this weekend!
Who is ready to pull out their boots and sweaters?
I know I definitely am. Well, that is, if Los Angeles will allow me to! What Fall style do you think you’ll rock the most this season?!

Swimsuit Dream with Kortni Jeane
August 3, 2016
I totally hate to say this, but swimming suit season is almost over. Where did the Summer even go? For you lucky ones who still have vacations planned, and are still looking for modest and stylish swimming suits that fit you well, (yes…those do exist) I know exactly what to tell you!
You guuuuuys! Their suits are to die for! For once I can actually walk around the beach and not worry about a dang thing. One pieces are usually not my thing, and to be honest, I rarely wear them! However, this one fits like a glove AND I don’t feel super self conscious in it!
Confident AND Comfortable?!
What more could a girl ask for?
Click the link below and check out their website! It’s adorable!
p.s. How amazing are these photos? I’m totally in love with Jordan!

If you were to ask me what my favorite article of clothing is, I would immediately say a ROMPER! Not only are they super comfortable…well…most of the time, but you also don’t have to go back and forth deciding what to pair it with! I am VERY indecisive sometimes, so trying to figure out what shirt to wear with what bottoms can sometimes take a lifetime. To save me the headaches, I wish I could wear a romper everyday! This one has become one of my faves. I love the colors and pattern, but I also love how the straps tie up on the shoulders. Something is really cute about those two bows hanging out on the shoulders. Now for the best part ever…IT’S ON SALE! Summer is not over yet…you need this statement romper for your last summer vacation! 🙂

Mini’s have never been my thing, but this one fit like a glove. From the color, to the pockets, the fit, to the detailing, I knew this skirt needed a home! Because of the skirt simplicity, pairing it with a blue and white floral patterned tank seemed like the perfect idea. I wanted to spice it up and add my own twist, so I buckled on my snake-skin heels and headed out the door. What are your favorite patterns to mix this Summer?
