Around Town: Griffith Observatory

griffith-park-viewgriffith-observatorygriffith-park-observatory

Hi guys, so I’ve been thinking about how many of my readers I left here on the wordpress community when I became self-hosted. It’s one of those blogging lessons no one really mentions!

I decided to try and post more often on this site so that I can reconnect with you. And if you ever want to see more of what I’m sharing, you can head over to my main blog LoveNiki.com

Lately I’ve been a busy little bride to be! Luckily, there was time a few weekends ago to visit the Griffith Observatory. And when I say “there was time”, I actually mean that a photography client requested the location for their family photos so we were able to go.

You can see the whole city from up there. The air is crisp, the sun is warm, and it’s a great spot for everything from working out to catching up on your reading. Both of which I’m incredibly behind on!

So how is your blog coming along? Have you made any big changes lately? Leave me links in the comments so I can stop by & check our your little home on the internet!

Love,

Niki

Two Looks One Sweater!

If you’re not already on a budget, I’m sure you will be after Christmas! Lol. And that’s all the more reason you’ll need to focus on making the most of what you have.
Re-styling things from your wardrobe is the quickest and simplest way to save money without having to compromise style and I do it ALL THE TIME!

Visit my main blog LoveNiki.com to keep up with my style adventures! I’m so bummed that the WordPress staff still hasn’t moved over any of my followers…I miss u guys! So come by my new home and say hi :)

Thanksgiving Blog Link Up!

SweaterTurkey 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!

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?

Forest hikeSaturday we took a little trip to the apple orchards in Oak Glen. There weren’t many apples but there was a corn maze and a pumpkin patch! The weather was perfect, a little chilly in the shade and a little warm in the sun. I’m already looking forward to going back next year!

What did you do this weekend?

OOTD: Fall in California

fall outfit

It’s cold, it’s hot, it’s raining, and now it’s sunny. That’s just how it is in Cali hence the sweater, shorts and boots combo. On the one hand I like the amount of warm sunshine but it’d be nice to have real seasons. Lol. Maybe things will cool down by Thanksgiving. *Fingers Crossed*

Party Dress

Blue DressNot every girl is going to be is going to headed to a costume party this year. Some of us will do the ‘too-cool-for-dressing-up’ party thing and the rest of us will probably stay home. I’m actually planning a sugar packed fun movie night with my boyfriend to celebrate Halloween. But does that mean us non-costume people are stuck wearing something boring? Umm….no. Lol.

If anything, I think we have a perfect excuse to wear something more daring. Halloween practically begs you to be bold and edgy, doesn’t it?

I found this tight blue dress at a yardsale for only $3! And last time I wore it I put tights underneath. But this is Halloween… that means a little leg & some knee high boot action is totally appropriate. haha

OOTD: Factory Worker

casual outfitMy hotel room was hit at 2a.m. this morning. In the downpour of bullets I was only to grab one of my bags before escaping through the fire escape. Luckily, I made it out alive but I’ve got very few weapons and ammunition. Not to mention that there are only a few things in my bag to build a disguise with.

I’m going to enter the factory at midday while everyone is at lunch. This is the only time the guards place their guns back in their holsters. They’re plump men who like to use both hands to devour their meals.
