Happy Wednesday, friends! It's sunny and beautiful outside, y'all! Praise Jesus, haha. :) Today's outfit is so emblematic of my style and aesthetic: color, pattern, and the menswear vibe.

On "You're Beautiful" — This is such a beautiful song (no pun intended). I remember being smitten with it back in middle school (am I aging myself??). I love its simplicity and the emotion it provokes. I'd love to hear what you think!

LuckyFABB West/LA Fun




Happy Monday, loves! After a busy week, I'm back to bring you a recap of my wonderful trip to Los Angeles! I had the pleasure of attending Lucky Magazine's West-Coast FABB conference (I attended the New York conference back in October). This was my first time in LA, so I made the most of the trip! Check out some of my favorite moments below:

The Fashionesta Lucky FABB Lucky Magazine Eva Chen Nasty Gal Sophia Amoruso Aimee Song Karolina Kurkova Nicole Richie Coco Rocha
On day one, I had the pleasure of seeing/meeting/hearing from some of the fashion industry's biggest names (top left: Lucky Editor-in-Chief Eva Chen with NastyGal founder Sophia Amoruso; top right: celebrity stylist Heidi Bivens, Song of Style blogger Aimee Song, model Karolina Kurkova, and Chen; bottom left: Chen and Nicole Richie; bottom right: Chen and model Coco Rocha).

In-N-Out Burger Santa Monica
After the program ended, I met up with an LA-based friend and we hit the town! I had In-N-Out for the first time (sorry, LA, Five Guys is better), walked the beautiful Santa Monica pier, and enjoyed the gorgeous weather, as it was still coat-and-scarf weather in NYC.

I had a fabulous time on the West Coast and I look forward to more California adventures in the future!

Check out today's song here

Hi, loves! I realize that it's been a little while since you've seen me dressed up, so here's an outfit that I recently wore to the office. Have I ever mentioned that bordeaux/oxblood/berry is one of my absolute favorite hues? The shade of this dress, alone, made it a must-buy. Throw in that leather collar detail and, as you can see, I'm hooked!

On today's song: By now, I'm sure you're all familiar with my undying love for Ryan Tedder and OneRepublic (if not, see here and here). Their songwriting and musicality are exquisite, and I am such a fan of Ryan's voice. This particular track tugs on my heartstrings, though, because I am a sucker for a well-executed love song. Enjoy. :)

By the way, I'm heading out to LA today for this weekend's LuckyFABB West festivities! Be sure to follow along with my adventures on Instagram and Twitter @theFashionesta, using #TheFashionestaLA.
