Paperless Post Christmas Cards

8:21:00 PM Andrea Ryan 2 Comments

          This year was the first year my fianc√© and I sent Christmas cards.  We used an alternative method to traditional cards.  We sent digital cards from Paperless Post.  This is the card that we sent.  I thought it was super cute because I love gingerbread houses.  Paperless Post has all sorts of invitations and card options.  I thought about doing new years cards but fell in love with the cute little gingerbread house.  They also work with a bunch of other companies that I love to create pretty designs, like Kate Spade and Grey Malin.  Check out the site for the next time you need to send a card.  It saves a stamp and trip to the mailbox.  ūüėÄ

First California Christmas

SWEATER: H&M (available in store)  |  JEANS: Forever 21  |  SUNGLASSES: Zero UV  |  BOOTS: Rue 21
          Merry Christmas!!  This year was my first warm Christmas ever.  It was super strange but the weather was perfect.  I wore my new winter sweater with this pretty embellished deer.  I love how the antlers are sprinkled with pearls and rhinestones.  The pom pom nose is also adorable.  I LOVE Christmas sweaters so much because they are just so festive.  I found this beauty at H&M, in store.  It is still available, just not online.  Today we opened presents, stopped by the beach, went for a little walk, ate dinner (lobster), and played Eddies new games.  We also did some other things but mostly normal Christmas stuff.  Hope everybody had a good holiday!

Styling a Beret

9:54:00 PM Andrea Ryan 5 Comments

BERET: H&M (similar) (another cute one)  |  SWEATER: H&M  |  BOOTS: Primark  |  NECKLACE: Forever 21
          I've always loved berets and have always wanted one with a pompom on top.  I remember wearing a cream colored one to school all the time when I was younger.  I found this beautiful one at H&M.  I just think it is the perfect color combo.  I wish it was a bit smaller because it is a little too big for my head.  A YouTuber that I watch bought the same one and reminded me that it looks like something Jenny Humphrey (from Gossip Girl) would wear. 
          The way I style berets is with an outfit that looks pretty feminine and winter-y.  It's hard to wear them in southern California but i'm just going to do it anyway.  I think it's a bit difficult to style them with hairstyles as well. I like to wear my hair in some sort of style, other than just down.  I think it makes it look a bit cuter and just a little bit better.  I like to wear braids or partially up.  Here is a post from last year where I styled one with two braids.  I think they look best on your head when they are placed back a little more and a bit off center.

Victoria Beach in Floral

          This past week one of my sisters visited me in California.  We did some fun things, including going to one of my favorite beaches.  This beach is Victoria Beach, in Laguna.  It's so pretty and has this old "pirate tower".  We also did a whale watching boat tour, where we saw hundreds of dolphins.  I have a video on my Instagram page!  It was incredible.  I plan on going again in a few months when it is more into whale season.  The weather was really nice that day so I wore this sheer floral top.  I found it in the sale section at Target.  I think it is so pretty.  I styled it with a nude cami underneath.  I wanted to layer it with a cardigan but it got too hot out.

Plaid Paper Bag Waist Pants

PANTS: H&M  |  TOP: Meijer  |  BOOTS: Primark  |  SUNGLASSES: T.J. Maxx  |  NECKLACE: Forever 21 
These pants were one of my many clearance finds that I bought with my birthday money.  Most of the other items that I have been blogging about were as well.  They are from H&M and were only $7! My blog should really be about finding the best clearance clothes because that's how I normally shop.  Probably half of everything I buy is from the clearance sections.    Anyway, I really like this outfit for fall.  I like it paired with this horn necklace.  I feel like it just completes the outfit.  These photos were taken at Crystal Cove State Park.

Casual Warm Weather Outfit

T-SHIRT: Topshop  |  SHORTS: Anthropologie  |  SANDALS: Report  |  SUNGLASSES: T.J. Maxx
          I had decided that I wasn't going to upload this post because the outfit doesn't seem fitting for the season.  It's weird wearing shorts and a tee in the late fall.  I felt like a lot of people wouldn't be able to relate and therefore wouldn't be interested.  I decided to upload it anyway because it's my real outfit and I really like these shorts.  I'm not crazy about the combo, but individually I love them.  I might blog about these items again in the future, styled in a different way.

FYY IPad Pro Case for Christmas

9:17:00 PM Andrea Ryan 2 Comments

          If you are in need of some holiday gift ideas I will be posting a gift guide, but in the meantime these FYY iPad Pro 11 inch cases would make the perfect gift to anyone.  You can find them at FYY store, online.  I think it would make a great gift for those people that are very difficult to shop for, such as your father or other family members.  I always find it hard to shop for my dad.  These come in three colors; red, black, and brown.  They are made of genuine leather, so they are built to last.  They would make a very practical gift.  The red one is my personal favorite because it reminds me of the fall and winter time.  Black would probably be the safest bet if it's for a gift, though.  FYY also sells tech cases for other products.  Check them out and be sure to stop by the FYY Facebook page.

Gingham Peplum

          Almost all of these items are new (from my birthday).  I paired them together because they are all black and white.  I love the gingham checker print mixed with the black and white speckled cardigan.  I wore my new black jeans with the outfit.  They are from H&M and honestly I regret buying them.  H&M jeans never fit me properly.  They are too tight in the thighs and too loose around the ankles.  Don't you hate when you try something on and you think it fits?  Then you get home and after wearing it a couple of times you decide it doesn't.  It's too late to return them.  I bought them because I normally get my black jeans from Forever 21 because they fit perfectly but they only last like 8 months.  I wanted to see if they would last longer from another store.  On the positive side, I do love this gingham peplum top!

Thanksgiving Outfit 2018

DRESS:H&M (available in store)  |  BOOTS:Primark  |  SUNGLASSES: T.J. Maxx
          Happy Thanksgiving! This year I spent the holiday with my fianc√©.  We went to the beach for a bit and took a walk on a trail.  Then we came home and cooked dinner.  After the amazing feast (lol) we watched Incredibles 2.  It was an excellent Thanksgiving.  
          This is the outfit that I chose to wear.  I wanted to dress up a bit this year to make it feel more special.  I always enjoy dressing up.  I'm wearing this plum lace dress.  It's a bit too big for me but I love the style.  It's just a really cute dress for fall.  Hopefully everybody had a good holiday!

White Cotton Blouse for Fall

TOP: Topshop  |  JEANS: Asos  |  BACKPACK: Sole Society  |  SNEAKERS: Target
          This outfit combo came together last minute after I finally got my Topshop order in the mail.  I bought a bunch of clothing from Topshop for my birthday and it took two weeks to come in.  I have never had a clothing order take that long to ship? Anyway, I got this top and I think it is beautiful.  It has some floral embroidery and lace paneling.  I also got this backpack for my birthday.  It's from my fianc√©.  I needed a new backpack to hold my camera when I go out for the day.  This one is so pretty because it's gold.  My only other one has Mickey ears on it, which is cute but not appropriate for every outfit.  These photos were taken at a park near my apartment called El Dorado Park.  We hadn't had a chance to check it out since moving to California so we finally went today.  It's really nice and has so much to do!

Stripes in Newport

          I recently got this top and sandals with some of my birthday money (gift money).  I've had my eye on these sandals for several months.  I think they are so cute.  It's a bit of a shame that the weather is cooling down but I think I can still get away with wearing them longer because I live in Southern California.  Maybe I will just put them away till next summer.  I wore them to Newport Beach today.  We spent the day there exploring the area.  We hadn't been there since moving here, and wanted to see what the ocean front was like.  This is what I wore.
