weekend randoms.

just a few randoms on this wednesday...
had an awesome weekend of running, food, and friends.

after our usual saturday morning classes and errands, we grabbed some icees and headed to one of my favorite parks. i was a little bummed to see that the grass and hedges were so overgrown that it blocked some of the amazing views that this park has to offer...but it was still nice and we were able to shoot a few pics for this week's east vs west. the rest of the day was spent resting and hydrating.

sunday was race day (recap to follow), and while i normally rest and do absolutely nothing after my races, i ended up having a busy but equally relaxing day. i had lunch by the beach with a friend followed by a pumpkin carving/birthday party. it's always nice to catch up with friends over food and drinks.

pumpkins carved by the kids.
can you guess which one belonged to the mini-he?

hint: it's not orange.


east vs west style. beauty.

time flies when you're having fun! it's the final week of this [fall 2014] east vs west series, and we're signing off with beauty. your lips and nails are the finishing touches to your outfit. there are four key colors that carry me throughout the fall season...a nude, a pink, a classic red, and a dark shade like plum or black. 

LAQA & Co. has me covered with their lip pencils and nail polishes. their fat lip pencils have great pigmentation and never need sharpening (bonus!), while their nail polishes pack a punch of color in just one coat.

i hope that you enjoyed this fall edition of our east vs west series. what was your favorite trend?

as always, a huge thanks to our amazing sponsors.

a little sparkle never hurts either...loving this ring set from INPINK and the sparkly clutch from Lulu's.
l to r: lambchop, nookie, ring of fire, plonk
lambchop and nookie are the perfect shades of bright pink, ring of fire is a bright red, and plonk is a beautiful deep reddish-brown.

a week of high-waisted shorts. cardigan.

finishing off this week of high-waisted shorts with a look i love. again, playing with the short and long proportions, a simple white tank tucked into high waisted shorts is topped with a statement red plaid blanket cardigan that is oh-so-fall. the black and silver accessories adds a bit of edge to the outfit.

hope you enjoyed this 'week of'...
did you have a favorite look?

a few tips for wearing high-waisted shorts:
- keep them looser and longer (i like at least a 2.5" inseam)
- when tucking in shirts, layer a longer piece over it to balance the short torso
- shorter the shorts, lower the heels
