Cannon Beach

If you grew up in the 80’s I know you’ve seen the movie ” Goonies “.  That was one of my favorite movies of all time. I was 8 yrs old when I saw it and I wanted to be one of the Goonies.  Adventure, romance, action and cute Sean Astin.  I loved that movie.  The reason we came to Cannon Beach was because of that movie.  This beach was in the intro scene and ever since then I have always wanted to visit this place.  We had a week off last march and we did a road trip from LA to Oregon. Our last stop of our Pacific Coast road trip was this gorgeous beach.

” Ursula ” by BeMoreMedia and TravelAnneStyle

The-little-mermaid-ursula

Ursula is a part human / part octopus sea witch that, “helps,” the unfortunate merfolk achieve their goals, with her motives at the forefront.  She is Disney’s famous villain that made a deal with  Ariel; ( The Little Mermaid ) she agreed to turn her  into a human for three days.  If Ariel can receive the, “kiss of true love,” from Prince Eric before sunset on the third day, her transformation will be permanent. However, if Ariel fails, she will turn back into a mermaid and belong to Ursula forever. But there’s always a price, and in this case, Ariel will have to pay Ursula with her voice to gain her human legs.

As part of the beauty editorial series we have planned for this summer we wanted to share the second villain, Ursula.  For this photo-shoot we worked with one of the most talented and sought after dancers in LA, Ms. Carlena Britch.  She is an artist of many talents; from dance/choreography,  make up, hair, style, and nail art; she has a TON going for her!

Girl meets BOY!!!!!!

Girl Meets BOY…

I was recently at Jcrew this weekend and I saw their catalog.  They featured a ” borrow from the boys ” kind of editorial for their summer collection.  I got inspired and decided I should do one since my style really does have a dose of boyish feel to it.  So where can I steal some boy clothes?? Obviously my hubby’s closet.  For this blog I chose 4 things that is easy to borrow from your significant other.

1.  his Button Down

I paired his button up with one of my slouchy black shorts and my wedges.  I would just add a black blazer then it could be a new take on a summer suit.

Shirt: H&M

Shorts: Express

Wedge: Wythe NY

Bag: My own design  made of Nubuck leather

2. his Sweater

I paired his sweater with my silk pants  and a white tank.  It is perfect for summer nights when it gets a bit chilly.

Sweater: Jcrew

Silk Cargo: Jcrew

white tank: Madewell

3. his Shorts

This pair of shorts was purchased from the men’s section at H&M because B would not be caught wearing these itty bitty shorts.  But we can really borrow our boy’s shorts every now and then.  I love the slouchy comfy feel of it and you can pair it anything from sweaters, tanks or tees.

Shorts: H&M

Sweater: Jcrew

Sandals: Renly

4.  his Watch

This is actually the easiest thing to steal from your man and very trendy right now.  I chose his Timex for this look and I just added some bangles to add my own touch to it.

Watch: Timex

Tank: Madewell

Cargo: Jcrew

The next time you run out of outfit ideas and really have no time to go and shop,  just go straight to his closet and steal a few things.

Madewell and TravelAnneStyle.. perfect combo!!!!!

Madewell and Travelannstyle

Chambrays all you need!!!

As you reach a certain age, you tend to only have a few stores in mind when shopping… for clothes ( with shoes it’s another story ). I always seem to gravitate towards Madewell and Jcrew.  It so happens that both are actually sister stores and have the same effortlessly cool style to them.  Before Madewell, I was a Jcrew addict.  I love every single thing in that store ( after Jenna Lyons took over as Creative director ).  A mix of basics and classics which you would find a lot in my wardrobe.  But when Madewell started popping up in Baltimore, I fell in love.  The style is a bit more casual and the prices are definitely lower than Jcrew.  Ever since then I have found myself shopping there almost 90% of the time.  So, for this post, I wanted to share my most favorite piece from Madewell; their Chambray Shirts.  This should be added to the new basics, right next to our white tees.

2 CHAMBRAYS 2 WAYS!!

Lighter Hue…

chambray

Madewell Chambray

For something casual to wear for meetings, brunch with the girls or even a coffee break with your significant other.  Here I paired my chambray with a mini wool skirt, both from Madewell and with a navy oxford by Christian Louboutin ( I purchased during my trip to Paris ). I chose the ” boyish ” style shoes since the skirt is a bit short.  It balances the look so it won’t be too sexy for day to day wear.  You can also pair this with ballet flats or even low top chucks in white, then add a baseball cap.  You can play around with accessories with this look since it’s simple.

Madewell

For a easy movie date look: I paired  it with skinny jeans and a jeweled sweatshirt; both from Madewell. This is a more monochromatic look so I decided to pair it with my Missoni colorful pumps.  I chose a bigger style top for this since i’m wearing skinny jeans.  Basic rule: Loose top tighter bottom and vice versa.

Darker hue…

Chambray

Madewell Chambray and lace

Summer ready look:  I paired my darker color chambray with my lace shorts both from Madewell.  The shorts are high waisted so I decided to wear it with my bikini top just to show a little skin.  The chambray acts as a cover up.  You can wear this while walking along the boardwalk or just to chill before dipping in the pool or beach.  I chose the green suede ballet flats to match the bikini and to add a pop of color.  ( ballet flats: Madewell ).

For the office:  Instead of wearing jeans for ” casual ” Fridays at work, try a chambray instead and pair it with printed pants.  I chose nude heels ( by Christian Louboutin ) for this look to add length to my legs.

Basic Instinct with the talented MrB!!!!

Zara Black suit

  You think jeans and tee is good enough, but why just be good enough when you can be your best.  For this blog I wanted to share the dude’s side of the basics.  This will  pretty much emulate my previous Parisian Chic blog.  I picked out five top basic things a dude needs in his closet.  It’s easy and available everywhere.

The BLAZER

Blazer by Zara

Instead of light jacket try using a blazer with your tees and pair it with nice chinos, cords or even jeans.  It will keep you warm and still be in style.

The CARDIGAN

cardigan by Jcrew

JCrew Cardigan

I wanted to use a cardigan instead of a V-neck sweater.  A sweater on guys are overly used so why not stand out amongst the rest and use a navy cardigan.  It has the same effect as a sweater but a bit more edgy.  Keep the color simple and solid.  Printed cardigans kind of remind me of a grandpa.

The WHITE TEE

When you reach a certain age, it’s time to give the graphic tees a rest.  Try a simple white tee. It’s a classic and really easy to style.  Plus, it’s cheap.

The LEATHER JACKET

Zara Letterman jacket

Now this is a personal choice.  I think some guys can totally pull off the bad boy motorcycle jacket but B definitely can’t.  So, I chose this letterman jacket for him.. It fits his personality and is easy to wear.

The BLACK SUIT

This is the equivalent to a LBD for the ladies.  Every man ( I mean anyone above the age of 21 ) should have a nice fitted black suit.  It can really save the day.  It can be formal or casual.  For this, it’s pretty casual but just add a bow tie or even a skinny black tie then you can wear it to a black tie event.  The best way to stand out with a black suit is pairing it with one awesome shoes.  His favorite Dragan Mrdja blue suede shoes just pop with this outfit.

I love how guys nowadays are concerned about their own personal style. Especially here in Los Angeles.   The best designers out there are men; Valentino, Marc Jacobs, Nicolas Ghesquiere, Elie Saab and Alber Elbaz.  It’s not that difficult to add some style into your day to day outfit.   It’s as easy as switching your hoodie for a nice blazer or trench.   I hope this will inspire you guys out there.  Nothing says sexy more than a nice confident man.
