The Styles of Sundance

Queens of Park City: MJ & GG from Shahs of Sunset, owned the winter chic look with these amazing fur vests and jackets, and even throwing in some cute boots and heeled booties into the mix

The night before heading to Utah, I probably sat and stared at my closest for a good two hours before finally starting to put together the things I would actually be packing. At that moment, I wish I had a go-to guide of what people actually wore at Sundance. You have to look cute, but you have to stay warm, you want to be dressed up, but want to stay casual, and all in all you ultimately don't want to repeat the same thing every day. All I had were a few pictures of me from the year before which didn't help me out too much. I wanted to see other people's styles, other people's outfits, and how others pulled off this theme of winter fab. So that's what I decided to do this year, showcasing in this post some of my ultimate favorite outfits I came across this past week. And hopefully this will prevent you in the future from sitting and staring at your closet for a good two hours before actually packing.

Just Neon: I spotted one of my all-time favorite bloggers Jared Eng from Just Jared, sporting this amazing highlighter neon green sweater from a mile away, kinda being completely jealous I didn't own it myself. And then seeing those amazing cheetah sneakers in the mix? This outfit is to die for

Ultimate Hipsters: The casual beanie, glasses, white jeans and combat looking shoes helps allow Andrew and Dillon to remain completely hipster in the snow

Iconic Snow Bunny: When I think of winter outfits-- a beanie, puffy jacket, and winter boots with fur come into the mind; this outfit completely fulfills every hope I would have for doing this look right

Casual Scarfing: This outfit first grabbed my attention because of the amazing yet simple scarf that tied the whole look together. While many were huddling up in their thick, woven scarves, this loose cross one paired up with a super cute petticoat and oversized sunglasses definitely put other outfits to shame

Winter Swag: New Era beanie, pullover sweater, white pants and killer snow boots-- Carlon Jeffery from Disney's A.N.T. Farm knows how to teach everyone about how that winter swag is supposed to go

Hint of Patterns: Adding a hint of a pattern like these super cute flower pants with your winter coat and boots helps you stand out from the crowd and add a little flare and personal style to your ensemble

Runway Perfection: These boys totally stole my heart as two of my favorite outfits I came across this week; the double wrapped hanging scarf and beanie or winter jacket and sweater looks seemed as they could've been easily styled in a magazine

Comfy Casual: This outfit was so simple, yet so cute. The jeans, long sleeve shirt, and amazing boots that tied the whole look together brought me back to a hint of an LA touch

Corduroy and Sweaters: This picture doesn't do these pants justice! The blue corduroy pants with this amazing winter-themed hoodie zip up could not make for the more perfect outfit for the snow

Let It Snow

Some people are in Big Bear, some people are in Vegas, and others are just appreciating not having to go to work thanks to this MLK Weekend. But I on the other hand am currently writing to you from the place where all that are involved in movie, film, and entertainment congregate to at the end of January... Park City, Utah. Starting Friday marked the beginning of the Sundance Film Festival where the itineraries have been endless with everything from movie screenings to your left, skiing/snowboarding sessions to your right, and DJ/ musical performances all through the night. I traded in my sandals and shorts with our finally sunny 85 degree LA weather for snow boots and thermals for a casual 25 degree weather. From snow hats to snow boots to winter jackets to winter scarves, everyone here has been killing it with their winter chic styles and successfully remaining warm but cute as we all try to adjust to the very not so LA weather. Stay tuned this week as I'll be bringing to you all of the amazing styles and fashion of Sundance.

Close To Home

One doesn't have to search too far to find some inspiration. And that's exactly what has happened with my friend, who also duels as my neighbor, Erica. I've been fawning over Erica's sense of style and fashion for over 8 years now... from one house away. While her style is never filled with overpowering colors or crazy glitter and sequins galore, Erica's outfits are always loud with a sense of style that's one step ahead of the curve. Today's outfit fits perfectly with LA's sudden chilly weather, wearing the perfect winter-esque warm oversized coat. Unlike me who's in fear of patterns, Erica loves choosing clothes with super fun designs like the ones displayed on her coat. While Erica's favorite go-to stores are the typical Zara, Urban Outfitters and Brandy Melville, what's different and unique about her style is that she loves to mix and match the regular with the unregular-- like choosing this Forever 21 jacket and pairing it with Jonak shoes that you can only find in Europe. The secret ingredient to finalizing any of Erica's looks are the accessories that standout and make the outfit; simple yet stylish jewlery like this double-face watch is the secret ammo Erica uses to make her outfits go from ordinary to extraordinary. The next time you're looking for a little fashion inspiration, don't try to look so hard, it may be right under your nose (or in this case, a house a way).
