No, it doesn’t snow here in southern Cali but it does cool off a little for the late fall/winter. The tricky part for me has always been trying to look cute under layers of fabric. Lol.
For this link-up I asked a few bloggers to show me how they’d style a chilly date night outfit. Click their image to check out their outfit photos! They did an awesome job.
Also, let me know if you want to participate in next week’s link up! The challenge will be to create a look that’s bold & daring!

If you’ve been following LoveNiki for awhile, you know how much I love Selena Gomez. And after her attending her concert last week (thanks to the best bf ever!), I realized that we believe in and stand for a lot of the same things. I can only imagine the pressure she is under to be skinnier, sexier, and cooler but she doesn’t seem to care. She embraces who she is and encourages others to do the same.
I spotted her geek crop top on her instagram and thought she looked effortlessly cool in it. So I looked around for one but I also realized that it’s actually getting a little chilly around here so maybe a warmer option would be a good idea. Lol.
Not only was I able to find a cute geek sweater from Kiki La’Rue (find it here) I also learned what Kiki La’Rue stands for. They are a company who believe in embracing who you are. If you check out their instagram @ShopKikiLaRue you’ll see how they offer pieces for many different shapes & sizes and that their models are real women who are both diverse and beautiful.
Let me know what you think of this geek chic sweater! And I’m always looking for looks to recreate so feel free to leave links to images in the comment section!

I love Rachel Bilson a.k.a. Zoe Hart! After this week’s style thief, I knew I had to share more of her awesome looks with you. I’m positive I’ll be recreating more of her outfits on the blog in the future AND….she has inspired me to take lighten my locks with ombre highlights! I’ll post my mini hair makeover next week!
If I had a giant bank account, recreating looks would be a cake walk. But this is real life and you’ve got to work with what you’ve got!
To create this look on yourself focus more on the outfit as a whole rather than the details. You’ll need: a striped shirt, a (fedora) hat, coat/jacket/blazer, and jeans. The items don’t have to be identical just similar. And you can switch up the footwear to whatever you like. Add a heel, cute flats, or even your fav pair of boots.
And if you have a little extra cash this pay check you can always purchase the things you need :)
$19.99 Bowery supersoft striped V-neck T from The Gap
$34.80 Laid Back Blazer from Forever 21
$38 Fedora from Nordstrom
$36.80 Faux Suede Booties from Forever 21

Turkey time is almost upon us! It’s a lovely holiday that feeds the soul ….and my stuffing loving tummy. Lol. For this blog link up I asked a few fellow bloggers to share a Thanksgiving dinner outfit idea. They did a great job so be sure to stop by their blogs and check out their outfits! (Links at the end of this post)
For my outfit I wanted a somewhat dressy look but nothing overly formal. I’ll be honest, my sweater is what makes this outfit work. It adds that cozy holiday touch to a simple dress. Plus, it’s nice & warm :) You can check it out here at Kiki La’Rue or you can browse their other lovely coats HERE. I’m sure you’ll find something you like on their site!

I am so happy to share my new online boutique with you!
I’ve been wanting to open up an online shop for awhile and I get super tingly at the thought of finally having it all set up. Take a look and let me know what you think! Is there anything you’re hopping to see added to the shop soon?
I can’t wait to hear your thoughts <3
Throwing it back to last week’s adventure. Pfeiffer beach was beautiful! It lived up to and then surpassed all of my expectations. I owe you more photos of it; I’m still sorting through everything. I did find a great shot of the coast that Will took. Pretty awesome right?

Tomorrow morning we’re heading out of LA and up to Big Sur! I was blessed with a Mini Cooper Convertible for my 25th birthday last month and what’s the best way to break in a convertible? A long coastal drive through beautiful redwoods.
I still can’t believe my Nina & Tio Joe got me a car…I thought this type of stuff only happened in movies! Lol
The trip takes about five and a half hours but we’ll be making a few stops for food and… Hearst Castle!
I’ll be a M.I.A. for a few days but don’t worry, I’ll come back with lots of photos to share and hopefully more videos :)
Follow me on Instagram @MsLoveNiki and Twitter @MsLoveNiki to watch as our adventure unfolds!
Oh so lovely readers,
I need to warn you. Things will be getting a little …random….around here. Lol But it’ll be fun! Sometimes you have to just stop over-thinking everything and just do what you feel! You know what I mean? So I’m going to let my creative, random, adventure seeking self take over and just go with the flow.
And lucky for me, my boyfriend is coming along for the ride ;)
So what randomness do we have for you today? Well, check out our dramatic cooking trailer above to find out!
Lots of love,
