Must Haves for the Week

“An artist is nothing without his or her obsessions, and I have mine.” ~Andres Serrano

My weekly series is back ! My must haves of the week will continue every week again. This week’s list was definitely so much fun putting it together. Here are the must haves of the week. Hope they inspire you all !

Must Have #1: Cube Appeal’s Daily Planning Notebook

My goal for 2018 has been doing everything with meaningful intention and finding things to help stay on this track is key. When my friend over at Cube Appeal sent me the Daily Planning Notebook, I knew it was meant to be in helping me experience each moment with the purest of intentions. This will continue to be a must have that will always be in my purse !

Must Have #2: Wonder Woman

I recently just watched Wonder Woman for the first time. Let me tell you, I am truly inspired from this movie. It is all about strong women and them sticking to their convictions and beliefs as well as standing up for others. All of this is a must have !

Must Have #3: San Francisco

San Francisco has continuously been a city I like, but it has in the recent months been a city that I truly have fallen in love with. The little cities within the city ae truly spectacular and unique from one another, which is one of the reasons I have fallen in love with the city of San Francisco. From North Beach to Fisherman’s Warf to Mission District and so much more. The energy is amazing, the people are great, scenery is gorgeous and all around spectacular, always a must have !

Must Have #4: Yoga Works

In my new journey of physical and mental health being a priority, yoga has become a big part of my journey and life. I have been on a hunt for a studio that I connect with and feel at home that studio is Yoga Works in Old Town Pasadena. The teachers, fellow yogis have the best energy and I connected with them right away. My yoga journey will continue to be a priority and Yoga Works will always be a must have for me.

Must Have #5: Self Care

This not a new must have for me, but one that continues to be a high priority, self care. Whether it is a facial while burning my favorite Jax Kelly candle or a yoga class, self care is a routine I continue to love and need. Always a must have !

Yes Pleases of the Week

“Live your life as a series of obsessions.”

One of my favorite times of the week is here, my Yes Pleases. This week was another fun one to put together. Here we go to this week’s Yes Pleases !

Yes Please #1: Football Season

Football Season is back and already we are into week three. I am so excited for football to be back. I love the sport, the energy it brings, the food and of course supporting my Chicago Bears. Here’s to hoping for an awesome football season for DA Bears, always a Yes Please !

Yes Please #2: Slip On Mules

So I have been a fan of mules for awhile now and so excited to see the evolution of them. There are heels, faux fur, florals, metallics, nudes, neutrals and so many other amazing details and options. As mules continue to transform so do my outifits. I continue to say a big Yes Please to mules !

Yes Please #3: Eric & Jessie is Back on E!

Yay, Eric&Jessie is back on E! after being away for 3 years. It premiered a couple of weeks ago and episode 3 just aired. This show is happy, goofy, full of laughs and serious relationship goals. The show is a must watch and a big Yes Please !

Yes Please #4: Woven Pear Socks

Woven Pear has quickly become a part of my sock drawer ever since I picked up my first two pairs at a local boutique. They are cute, comfy and full of fabulous details (one being the cute woven pear) and love all the different choices. I recently was sent these amazing Ice Cream socks and Bison socks to feature, which is officially one of my favorite packages to get. They are another accessory that gives not only comfort, but that fun peekaboo pop to an ensemble. For me, Woven Pear is always a Yes Please !

Yes Please #5: Hask Hair Products

My hair is thick and there is a lot of it. I am always looking for great products that are paraben & sulfate free. I have fallen in love with Hask Hair ever since I first tried their shampoo, conditioner and dry shampoo (my fave). I have been wanting to try all their products for awhile so I was overjoyed when Hask Hair themselves sent me all their amazing products. I was overwhelmed with joy and excitement to try them all. Hask Hair is hair happiness for me and always a Yes Please !

Team Tee Trends Featuring Sharp Dressed Fan

To say last year when my Chicago Cubs won the World Series was amazing and historic is an understatement. This season has had a sense of up and down, but with continued excitement and fun. So with a 2 game lead in their division, they need to keep playing hard and with heart like they have been to keep that lead. A few things for them to keep their lead are to stop moving around the line up (slowly getting better with that), get the bullpen’s confidence up and get Willson Contreras off the DL, which thankfully happened yesterday before game 1 with the Mets. His energy and talent are electric and contagious. Here is to great hitting & pitching throughout the rest of the season.

September baseball is going to continue being amazing and I believe in the Cubs to keep that Central Division lead. Go Cubs Go ! One of the many things I love about baseball is the love and loyalty to one’s team. The fun comroderity and competition that comes with family and friends creates such joy and an added bonus to an already amazing game. It is one big family when it comes down to it and brings us to together.

To celebrate September baseball for my Cubs, I thought I would channel some of my favorite fashion trends of the moment. Two of my favorite things are fashion and sports. I get to combined them everyday and this series with the Mets is no different in doing that. The trends I have incorporated are a vintage graphic tee and the color of power red or Cubbie red as I like to call it.

This vintage tee has been passed around throughout my family, which of course I had to pair it with my Cubbie power red Mary Janes by Nine West along with my favorite high waisted jeans. Of course I had to add a vintage Cubs hat (thanks Dad) as well as a Cubbie power red lip ! Here is to continued ensembles with a flair for sports and fashion this September baseball season representing my favorite team 🙂

As I mentioned before what I love about baseball is that it brings us all together and this collaboration rains true to that. Sharp Dressed Fan and I have collaborated for the Cubs vs Mets series, which concludes tonight. It was fun for us both to style and represent our teams with our perspective vintage tees. Below is her chic account of styling for her New York Mets.

Sharp Dressed Fan Knows How to Represent Her New York Mets

So admittedly, my Mets aren’t doing nearly as well as the Cubbies this season, but I still love ’em! Even after living out here in California for 10+ years, I still follow the Metsies religiously, and listen to, or watch, about 95% of the games. Sundays are especially fun, as we’ve created a group of loyalists in LA , and gather to watch, and drink through, the games together. While the Yankees may claim more fans, the New Yorkers who bleed orange and blue are absolute die-hards, and even the first to form a traveling fan club (with their own apparel line!)

IMG_5272.JPG

The look I’ve put together for this Mets v. Cubs series is based on two major trends this year: the white logo tee, and the pleated midi skirt. The versatility of the tee knows no bounds, but, as it’s still a new-again trend, it can be more difficult to find a crew neck for women. My choice is actually a vintage Mets tee from the innaugural MLB Victoria’s Secret Pink line, but I’ve linked to another excellent option below in a child’s size. Don’t be afraid to try sizes outside your range – a kids L or XL makes a close match for a women’s S or M most times. My cobalt skirt was a fab clearance find at Forever21 (who can say no to a $6 skirt?!) and I’ve linked to an even lovlier one from Anthropologie, but they’re so popular at the moment, that you can find one in any price range. My gold heels can easily be swapped out for a more reasonable day-shoe, like the block heel alternatives I’ve linked to, but be creative! The best part about dressing up a tee is that there is no wrong answer, just as long as your repping your team.
