Yay, it's the weekend and we survived the big storm in California!! Today I have teamed up with Piperlime to bring you some of my favorite pieces from their fall collection. If your not familiar with Piperlime, it is an online women's apparel and accessories brand offering a variety of different products, labels, and price points to fit anyones closet. I fell in love with their cross front dress which was short in the front and long in the back, almost like a mullet dress. The print is even prettier in person and it definitely needed a belt because it didn't lay as nicely as it did on the model. So, I added my thick belt from the Altuzarra for Target collection which helped give my body shape in this flowy dress. It was warm the day I shot this look so the jacket was not used very much. To the jacket's credit it is definitely a perfect little black jacket for fall because it is light weight but keeps you nice and warm, plus you have all these little zippers and compartments to keep everything you need handy. BTW everything I'm wearing from Piperlime is currently 30% to 50% off.

Today's outfit is all about my new camel colored boots from Zara. I can't even tell you how obsessed I am with these boots!! I have literally been planning my outfits around these gorgeous boots. Some of the many reasons I love these boots are because they are super stylish, the color is very "on trend" and goes with virtually everything, they are the most comfortable heel boots I own, they are made out of great quality material which means they will last me a very long time, and they match my hermes inspired bag perfectly. I am literally wearing these boots as I write this post and I just love them! I bought them on black friday when Zara had 30% off everything in the store and I am kicking myself for not buying the black ones too but they are so amazing I am willing to shell out full price for them. So, the black ones are on there way. I know I sound crazy but I love fashion and when I find something as spectacular as this I have to share it with all of you. I paired the boots with my usual go to skort and an oversized sweater I bought from H&M three or four years ago. Hope everyone has a great weekend and don't forget to follow me on instagram @TrueHonestFashion !!

P.S. Good news, I just received my save the dates for the wedding in the mail and they are perfect. I will share them on the blog in a week or two, once all of our guests have received theirs!

This past weekend was so much fun. Four of us threw my best friend a baby shower and it turned out so perfect. It was great catching up with old friends and meeting new ones. You could feel all the love in the room and I'm so excited to be Aunty Shirley very soon, not by blood but relation (Jay Z voice).

I shot this outfit a few weekends ago but I haven't had a chance to post it until now. I've been a busy busy bee from helping plan the baby shower to planning my wedding and working a semi full time job. I struggle to find the balance but I promise I will find it, and when I do I will share the secret with all of you. Now, lets talk about my unhealthy addiction to this white skort. Its one of the most used pieces in my closet because it so comfortable and white goes with every color under the sun. I decided to pair it with this beautiful feminine top from the LC Lauren Conrad collection at Kohls. Since it's fall I threw on a trench coat which has been on repeat this whole season. I live for a good flowy trench coat! Tan pumps completed this soft look for a brunch date with my honey at our favorite spot, Claire's at the Museum.

I hope everyone had a great weekend filled with lots of love and positive vibes! Let's keep the good vibes going through the work week!!

Hey loves!! I have decided to start a new category on the blog, where I can share some great Behind the Glamour details with all of you. I have been asked countless times from readers and friends what camera and lens I use to take most of the pictures on the blog. I personally fell in love with the Sony line because it was much lighter and more compact than Nikon or Canon. My first camera was a SONY NEX 5N with the kit lens. I was satisfied with the kit lens but I always craved more and I wanted better quality pictures so my fiance asked his best friend, who is a professional photographer, and he recommended the Sony 50mm f/1.8 lens for a more blurred background. Needless to say, we purchased the lens and it has been our go to lense for the past year. Unfortunately back in September my SONY NEX 5N pooped out. It wouldn't turn on and it would freeze all the time. It was becoming very temperamental which was no good for the blog. I went to my local camera shop and they said they would be able to fix it for $200 + but they couldn't guarantee a price until they actually opened the camera. I didn't want to spend that kind of money on a old camera that could break down again and again so I decided to buy a new camera. Everywhere I went everyone highly recommended the SONY ALPHA A6000 because the lenses I had from my previous camera were compatible with the new camera. I purchased the SONY ALPHA A6000 - Body Only. This is the camera I have been using for the past 4 months and it has been a great upgrade from NEX 5N. I would recommend both the cameras because they both produce great quality pictures and are easy to use. With these cameras I would highly recommend getting a 2 or 3 year warranty plan because they are very expensive cameras to fix. 

The holidays are approaching quickly and this camera would make a great christmas gift for anyone who is looking to take up photography as a hobby. I hope this post helped you out and if you have anymore questions for me just leave them down below in the comments section and I will respond as soon as I can.

Shirley  

Random fact, this will be my 98th post on the blog. Pretty exciting!! 2 more until 100 :)

This is the best value for the SONY ALPHA A6000 and the 50mm f/1.8 lens (Currently $697.99

I am so behind on posts because I was working very hard towards a promotion at work that I finally received yesterday!! I am very happy and ready to take on more responsibility! Shirley in charge! LOL.

I wore this outfit two weekends ago and let me just tell you those heels & that bag were the star of the show. A lot of people would walk by and stare at my heels, I don't know if they loved them or they thought I was absolutely crazy but I didn't care because I love them. Remember, always dress for yourself because you will never be able to please the world! I've worn that fringe bag on repeat for the last 3 weeks because its black and it goes with everything I wear. I love the details on this bag like the long shoulder strap and the overload of fringe everywhere. It's definitely one of my favorite go to bags for everyday wear. I kept the rest of the outfit very simple with an over sized jean top from Joe Fresh, who is quickly becoming one of my favorite designers at JCPenney along with MNG by Mango. The jeggings I'm wearing are from Levis which is carried at JCPenney too. All this great stuff under one roof! I am a Levis girl for life!! 

I took a few snap shots of my visit to the most amazing dessert location in LA, Bottega Louise!! If your ever in town or your in town and you've never been there you must go and try the fresh macaroons and the beignets filled with nutella. Ahhhhh they just make my mouth water and my heart melt!! I'm a sweets girl all the way! If I don't post anything before the holidays, Happy thanksgiving!! XOXO

Love,
Shirley
