I’m recovering from a weekend of back to back holiday parties and out of town guests, so keeping thing cozy and classic to get through some last minute shopping runs and lunch dates is definitely in order. Last night was also the longest of the year, slowly going back to longer days is definitely another reason to celebrate! Thanks for stopping by, xox Zia
Sometimes I just get bored with the same old, same old and need to switch it up…like always wearing skirts or skinny jeans so I pulled out these perfectly tailored Armani wide leg trousers that fit and flow and do all the right things… if only I were tall enough to wear them with flats, ah well I love them anyway! I’ll be spending my weekend prepping for a Holiday Cocktail party Saturday night and an unplanned slumber party as we have friends and family descend on us from all over, gotta love the holidays! Peace and Joy, Zia

I have been trying my hardest to resist buying a pair of over the knee boots, as evidenced in this post, by substituting with over the knee socks. Its not that I don’t love the trend, I really do! I have had several incarnations over the years: a flat suede pair in high school, a high heeled leather pair during my rocker mode…but I just felt that I was not going to get enough use out of them living in LA so when this look was shot I was still sticking to my guns. I have since purchased a pair of flat over then knee boots, they haven’t arrived yet but I can’t wait for them come. This week would have been perfect since its been raining quite a bit, but FedEx this time of year… it’s killing me, so I’m rocking the long socks in the meantime! Have I mentioned how happy I am to have my blog back? xxx Zia

Oh my, it has been a long while and I have missed you so! It is so good to be back after my IT team found a major issue with the blog site that required a full system reboot. I now have a lot of catching up to do with not only the holidays in full swing but also photos from my vacation and finally complete home remodel. I wanted to start things off with a festive outfit perfect for celebrating with co-workers after hours: a form fitting red wool dress with some leopard on leopard and sparkle around the decolletage make for a perfect holiday cocktail attire. I hope your holiday season has been filled with reasons to slip into something red hot! Thanks for visiting, xoxox Zia

Our weekend was exhausting! We were finally able to start piecing our home back together but we wont have time to deal with the details until we return. Thank goodness we have our trip coming up this week: Wednesday morning we leave for an 11 day cruise starting in Miami taking us through six amazing ports before sailing across the Panama Canal! My ability to post will be limited but I should be able to keep the pictures coming on Instagram.
This lace shirt has been with me for a very long time and I unearthed when I was filtering through my things for the yard sale we had this weekend. In my younger days I would wear this with nothing underneath, it was VERY risque but that was the way I did things back then! These days wearing a nude tank top underneath is the way I go and it still causes a few double takes.
Super Duper busy day today: Blog shoot, third audition this week (of course, I’m leaving town next week), wrapping up loose business ends and getting ready to leave town while my house is still in disorder! Well, if any kind of day calls for a super casual, easy outfit I’d say this one qualifies. I don’t expect my weekend will allow for any quiet time but I’ve got plenty of that coming my way next week…I do, nonetheless, wish you a wonderful and relaxing weekend ! xxx Z
This time next week I will be on a plane heading off to a great adventure through the Caribbean Sea and across the Panama Canal! We are all super excited to explore all the amazing places we will be visiting but also we just really need some relaxing time after almost three months of living through this remodel that is, yes, still in progress! It’s odd going back through my summer clothes just after I was finally able to pull out my fall things… so I’ll just have enjoy them while I can! thanks for reading, xo Zia
