Being A Madden Girl

It's that time of year again to bring out your favorite sweaters, beanies, and fur vests and cuddle up by the fire because Fall (and soon Winter) is amongst us! Ok... wait, well that may be true for the rest of this entire world, yet it seems to be that here in Los Angeles, that's not exactly all what it's cracked up to be. While everyone looks to us LA'ers as probably the luckiest bunch with a climate that at most would involve a light cardigan if anything due to this extreme heatwave we've been in for the past year, I am now only dreaming of the days where we're able to have some type of Fall or Winter and wear some of our favorite warm attire. Luckily though, I've been seeing a subtle climate shift here in LA where do I dare say I've been feeling a little... chilly... the past few days? Therefore, I've instantly gone full speed to (what should be) a Fall / Winter and am not turning back before the weather decides to change its mind!

And lucky for me, the cutest winter line by Madden Girl just came out at Kohl's with all you can dream of and more in the world of coats, fur jackets, vests, beanies, cold weather inspired boots, and the list goes on. So in today's post I've taken it upon myself to redefine what Fall and Winter is for us LA'ers and mix and match my two favorite elements and seasons into one to create our type of LA Fall / Winter ensembles. Rompers and sneakers to get you around easily throughout the day and this amazing fur jacket to add that Fall / Winter allure for these moments where I've been feeling that subtle brisk air. Hey you know what, maybe not having a full-fledged seasons isn't so bad after all!

Check out this cute little video I made below showing what it means to me to be a Madden Girl (and I also give you a sneak peak of the other looks from the line coming soon to the blog!)

Fashionable Winter Clothes

A few weeks back I headed to one of my favorite places and one of my favorite times of the year-- Park City and Sundance. There were a lot of hurdles in my way en route to Park City as I missed my connecting flight to Salt Lake and was stranded in a few airports for a few hours. But as can be predicted, my most stressful and pressing issue of all was... what was I going to wear? Not equipped with my typical savvy winter attire this time as we had been cruising  in a summerlike winter in LA for quite some months now, I was luckily able to pull some things together like today's post which was definitely one of my favorite winter outfits of the week. Pairing a long skirt in the snow which I had never done (obviously with tights underneath), a cute bow turban headband, and the ultimate sweater with a F on it making me feel like a fashion Superman, I became my own fashion superhero, fighting the challenges and battles of winter gear and ensembles-- one day at a time.

PUMA Giveaway

PUMA Sneakers I kicked off yesterday with my season of giving by doing a Jake Miller giveaway so I thought... why let the fun stop there? As a huge sneaker fanatic, when I saw that PUMA was doing an exclusive capsule collection with Rime, I almost fell over in excitement over these super swagged out shoes. So many ways in which these gold sneaker wedges could be played and worn, I decided to opt out of my typical beanie look with these kicks and instead went for a dress and simple gold details-- showing you just how versatile any shoes and look can be. And my favorite way to share my love for things is to be able to share in the excitement with you guys!
