It’s mid-November, which means it’s officially acceptable to celebrate all things holiday!! Even though, let’s be honest, I started celebrating the holidays November 1st (Yes, my holiday playlist has been playing non-stop on my iTunes).
So, to officially kick off the holiday season, Fashion Island had its annual Christmas Tree Lighting on Friday and Saturday!! I got to go on Saturday and had a blast! The event is hosted by the Disneyland Resort and features songs and dancing from your favorite Disney characters, Minnie, Mickey, Goofy and Donald Duck as well as some very festive cast members.

Yesterday morning, we left Naples to head to the an area along the coast of Italy known as Cinque Terre. This is the name given to five villages that are nestled in the cliffs along the sea. It took 8 hours, 3 trains rides, running through a train station, and lugging our suitcases up and down stairs. Halfway through the trip, I wondered to myself is this all worth it? And then I saw it: the breathtaking views of the most beautiful pace I had ever seen.
Today, my sister and I visited the ruins of the hidden city of Pompeii. I love history and love visiting historical sites like Pompeii.
Pompeii was a bustling city that existed up until 79 A.D when Mount Vesuvius erupted and the city was covered in about 20 feet of ash. The city was pretty well preserved and a good portion of the city is still undiscovered and archeologists are still digging. My sister and I really enjoyed seeing the city and all the buildings, homes, and artwork. It really felt like we were stepping back in time.
After 24 hours of traveling, my family and I finally arrived yesterday to the beautiful town of Napoli in the South of Italy. And, while yesterday was technically our first day in Naples, we mostly just ate and slept, which means that today was our first real day!!
In the morning, we checked out some stores and did some shopping, then we took a tour of the city and got to see how truly beautiful this little city by the sea really is (not to mention how AMAZING the food is!!) Check out all the pictures from my first day in Napoli below!!
I’m leaving today for a family vaca in the beautiful land of Italia!! I’ll still be posting, but I will probably be posting more about the vacation than fashion law stories. So be prepared to see lots of posts about pasta, pizza, bread, beautiful men and women, and pretty clothes!!

Coachella is NEXT WEEK!!!! This my first year going to Coachella and I am sooo excited!! Not gonna lie I’m partially excited because of all the great potential outfits!! I feel like music festivals allow people to tap into the hippie/free spirit/woodstock side of themselves and let that person be free for 3 days in the California desert in cut off shorts, crop tops, bandeaus, and flowy dresses. Its also incredibly hot so that might have a little something to do with the minimal amount of clothes on people.
Last week over spring break, I hit up Forever21 and H&M with my friend, Roya, on the hunt for some cute but inexpensive shorts, tanks, bandeaus, dresses and skirts that will be perfectly festival chic. We found some gems and you’ll have to wait and see what I wear!! But, while I was perusing the racks and looking online for inspiration, I found so many different pieces and looks that could cover not one, not two, but several Coachella weekends. And, so below is only but a sliver of my dream Coachella wardrobe. Enjoy!!
