WHAT I WORE: When In Doubt, Fade to Black

Happy Wednesday!!!

I feel like this has been the longest week ever but it's only Wednesday...I need another vacay, lol! Anyway, over the weekend I faded to black from head to toe....literally. My friend darkened my hair and I'm totally loving my locks a little more now. I'm also super obsessed with black tops, pants, skirts and dresses especially leather anything this season because it's always appropriate for any occasion, when in doubt fade to black, you can NEVER go wrong! Friday night I spent some time with one of my closest friends and decided to throw on my leather since it was freezing out, of course I had to jazz it up with my new headband (don't mind my crop leather---*summer time sadness*). Get the deets on What I Wore below:

WHAT I WORE: Pave Bunny Ears Headband by BCBG/ Tuxedo jacket (old) from Urban Outfitters/Leather crop top (old) by BCBG/Leather Play Off Pants by Sorella Boutique/ Glitter Pigalle Heels by Christian Louboutin (similar found here)

SHOEGASM: So Kate Specchio Leather Pumps by Christian Louboutin

Anyone who knows me, KNOWS how much gold I like! I wear my gold rings and bracelets all the time so it's only fitting that I have a huge crush on these So Kate Speechio Pumps by Christian Louboutin, I mean have you seen them? My first pair of gold heels were Jimmy Choo and as much as I love them, I want another pair with a higher heel so this is totally PERFECT for me. Of course, I already have several outfits planned for these babies. Check out my shoe crush below:

Fashion Killa also known as Rita Ora rocked these babies first and I was smitten kitten! For $625 and 4½" inches (115mm) of metallic love, is it worth the splurge? *Decisions*

TRENDSPOTTING TUESDAY: Reversible Denim Jeans!

Any denim fans out there?! Well the trend of denim-on-denim is far from over, yes you heard it here first so keep those denim shirts in the closet and bring out those denim jeans as well. A far more trendy and economical trend is underway and I'll be the first to tell you that I'm in love with it. The reversible denim jeans are here for the Fall/Winter.
via: DenimTherapy
I first spotted this trend over the summer in Target and was blown away that I could get double the usage out of my jeans so when I went to LA last week and found myself in the Kardashian's store Dash on Melrose and I gravitated to the Bleulab Reversible Collection! I tried on two pairs of the denim jeans but just wasn't willing to pay $200 for a pair at the moment, maybe next month. Jean shopping is exhausting, I hate trying on clothes...but when it comes to jeans I put my pride aside and go to the dressing room. I'll try to go shopping for the perfect skinny reversible denim this weekend, stay tuned lol! Meanwhile, check out a few celebrities embracing the reversible denim trend below:

Jean shopping anyone?!

WHAT I WORE: Los Angeles Street Chic

After a great weekend in San Diego, I made my way to my absolute favorite place in the world...LOS ANGELES! Anyone who knows me knows how much I love California so I had to get my full experience since I spent most of my time in San Diego. The first stop was to popular and famed IN-N-OUT Burger for a quick bite to eat after a 2 hour drive.

You know I had to jazz up this $6 combo meal with some champagne...I know I know, I'm too much! LOL. Just know that Beyoncé did it first and I did it second ; )

WHAT I WORE: Dress (gifted)/Metal cuff heels by BEBE/Clutch by Forever21/Gold hoops by Belle Noel/Bracelet from H&M/
My first night out in LA was sooo much fun! One of my BFFs live there so getting a chance to hang with him & other friends is always a good time.
WHAT I WORE: Leather crop top from ZARA/High-waist jeans from Urban Outfitters/Metal cuff heels from BEBE/Earrings (gifted)/
My second night out was full of handsomeness (I know that's not a word I got to dine a super cute restaurant then parlay in this really chic backyard garden area with my college friend/ex-roomie. The weather was PERFECT & of course with a cocktail and great company I was a very happy girl. Always good seeing old friends!!

WHAT I WORE: Hat (old) from Forever21/T-Shirt from ZARA/Blazer from Urban Outfitters/Jeans by Rag&Bone/Bag by Gucci/Heels by ZARA
I HATE flying but since I like to travel I know that it's necessary so I suck it up and act like a big girl lol. I mask my fear of flying by putting on some heels & a fierce lip as if I'll be meeting my girls or my future husband for a casual cocktail after I get off of the plane, corny I know but it works for me. I was always told by my parents to dress up when it comes to travelling (I get it from my mamma) as you never know where you would be going right after you get off the plane or who you may see. I'm all about travelling in style especially when going to international airports and especially because a SINGLE girl can never tell who she may run my advice to women is to dress up a little (be comfortable of course) as you never know who may be watching or where your fabulous outfit will take you....Take it from me, the airport is the great place to meet people :)

WHAT I WORE: Where In The World Is Carmen Sandiego?

I'm bacccccck from a very much needed vacay to my favorite coast, the west coast that it is! After being furloughed two weeks ago, I definitely needed a little time away from the city so the timing was PERFECT. I spent Columbus weekend in San Diego with my girlfriends before making my way to Los Angeles. I haven't been to San Diego in years, so I was super happy to explore this beautiful city. We took a ferry to Coronado Island to eat, drink and just be....Check out my weekend below:

(L: Me, Ericia & Regina riding the Ferry)


I'm so obsessed with the beach and ocean...didn't want to LEAVE!

Biking in heels...YES, know me!  

WHAT I WORE: White Blouse from H&M/Distressed denim from H&M/ Heels by Jimmy Choo/Aviator sunnies by Jimmy Choo/Hoop earrings by Belle Noel/Bike borrowed from San Diego :)

Switched up my usual cocktail for a Coronita...#HappyHour

As usual my Sunday tradition of brunch was in full effect! Me & the girls dined outside at Cafe Chloe in the Gaslamp meal wasn't the greatest but the Pomegranate Mimosa was amazinnn.  

Before we left San Diego, we wanted to see the beach one more time before heading back to LA. It's something about the ocean that calms me and makes me feel at peace, I guess it's the Aquarius in me..
WHAT I WORE: Blush Pink Sequin top by BCBG (old)/ Reversable denim jeans from Target/Nude "Lance" shoes by Jimmy Choo/Earrings from BEBE/ Sunnies from H&M
I'm super happy that today is my official first day back to work...the furlough is OVER!! Stay tuned to my Los Angeles "What I Wore" looks. I hope everyone is enjoying their week, can you believe Halloween is in two weeks?! I'm freaking out...Who will I be? *ponders*

This was such an intense scene....I've watched this part at least 5 times!! #AddictedToScandal

Feeling artsy and inspired!!

Oops did I say that out loud?!

This week is really flying by and when I say flying, I mean it's time for my annual escape away. With the holiday weekend right around the corner and much packing, primping and prioritizing happening, I need time to prepare my life so that means a short break from blogging. No worries, I'll be back next week in full bloom, post-holiday weekend madness with lots to share. And if you want to "Keep Up With Schuntel" follow my instagram: @ms_schuntel :)
