Red Has Always Been My Color

Everyone has a color that looks good on them right? I feel like I have many, but one of my favorites is red. I mean it is such classic color. It adds brightness to a somewhat neutral ensemble. The best part about this red sweater is the twist in the back. That little details gives this outfit so much more. I paired it with leopard print jeans, which I always say is a neutral, and finished with a tan pair of mules. I kept it simple, and sometimes that is the best option. This outfit is perfect for a casual date night, such as dinner and a movie. Shop it below.

Having A Staycation at the New Omni Louisville

A week ago I had the privilege of venturing around and staying at the new Omni Louisville (as a early birthday gift). The hotel did not disappoint. The interior design and architecture is definitely top notch. Not only are the rooms impeccable the restaurants, market, boutique, and speakeasy are a must even if you do not stay for the night. The hotel is complete with two dine-in restaurants, Neighborhood Services and Bob’s Steak and Chop House, both are well worth your time and money.  If you are just in the mood for a drink try The Library; a bar designed to look like a public library, or Pin + Proof; a speakeasy with a bowling alley (which is a lot of fun).
 Lets talk about the Fall City Market….I’m in love with this concept. It’s perfect…Heine Bros. (coffee shop for the non-locals), a wine shop, a flower shop, an actual grocery, and a couple different dining spaces to choose from. I mean you could quite easily spend a couple hours just in this space.
The Omni also has all the upscale amenities such as Mokara Spa, a state of the art gym, and a rooftop pool with a bar called The Water Company. It really has everything you need to enjoy a couple days off from the real world or host a big event, such as a wedding or conference. I am totally ready to move in. This is a possibility since they have luxury apartments (details here).
What do you wear for a staycation? Comfy casual, of course! As I did here. I took black leggings paired them with a bell sleeved sweatshirt (which are really the trend right now), and my favorite leopard print flats. What is your favorite staycation outfit? shop mine below.

Transitioning to Spring with Pattern and Color

Some days it might not feel like it, especially with this crazy snow, but the first day of Spring is literally around the corner. I am looking forward to warmer weather and bright colors as you can see from my outfit. This Spring I am all about the bold solids and leopard anything. In my book leopard will always be a neutral, and this blouse compliments almost any bold color you can find. For this outfit I paired a yellow blazer with cream and gold details, with this leopard blouse. If that was not enough pattern and color I added a pop of red with a clutch and lipstick. Finishing the look with black leggings and spiked heels. This will definitively be a go to for the warmer weather. What does you Spring outfit look like? Shop mine below.

Wifey to Be

Wifey to be….that’s me! Wedding prep is definitely underway and September will be here before you know it. Planning on doing a monthly wedding update here on the blog starting in February. So stay tuned!! Now on to this post…

Freezing temperatures and snow covered ground. Who is ready for spring? I have had my fix of the cold and I am almost ready to see it go. Although I do love cold weather clothing, this getting up and wondering if the roads are drivable is not idea. Anyway, I am loving this outfit I have on in this post. My puffy vest collection has been on full rotation during the cold months. I paired this one with leggings that have leather accents, my black wifey sweatshirt (which is most important), a leopard print scarf and tank, and ducks boots (which I am truly thankful for in this weather). What is your favorite snow day outfit? Shop mine below.

Alli Travels: Coachella

Life is always an adventure. While in the Palm Desert my boyfriend and I took a few days and drove to San Diego and LA. Well since Siri said that there would be traffic the way we planned to go, she rerouted us (as she usually doe). She took us on some back roads and we were all kinds of confused and wondering where we were. 

I am so glad that she did because we would not have gotten to see this beautiful view at Coachella Valley Vista Point.  Has this ever happened to you? Driving in the middle of nowhere and then something awesome happens? If you are ever in the Palm Desert it is worth the drive up to see. This instance reminded me that in life you have to sometimes go through the curvy back roads to get to something beautiful or to get to where you are suppose to be. Life Lessons!!

Anyway for a road trip outfit I like to be what I call the 3 C’s: casual, cute and comfy. This bodycon dress (similar here and here) with some Sperry’s (here and here) is my idea of comfortable. I paired them with my favorite sunnies (here, similar here) and leopard clutch (here). Finished it off with black dangle earrings (here), and a little arm candy (watch here, bracelet here, Fitbit here). Shop the rest of my look below. Hope you enjoy!
