Beijos Favorite Cozy Sweaters for the Fall Season

We had a looooong Indian summer down in Southern California, but the weather has finally changed.  I mean, it’s still in the 80’s this week, but it’s definitely colder in the mornings and evenings, ha!  But I’ve been busting out my sweater collection and I ain’t mad about it.  There’s just something about getting cozy during these colder seasons and sweaters are all about that.  I teamed up with Knot Sisters again for my favorite sweaters for the Fall Season and I’m sharing them today!  Check out these three looks, from dressy to casual, with their amazing sweaters this season.

This first look is very fun!  I have been seriously living in this long sweater since I got it.  The color is so pretty and goes with so much, and I love how I can throw it on over anything!  I get so many compliments on this sweater too!  For this look I paired it with a denim skirt, t-shirt, tights and booties.  I threw on a beanie as well to complete the entire look, and of course I’m always wearing my favorite sunnies.  This outfit is a little unexpected, and that’s why I love it for Fall!

Next up is this super pretty white Carlson sweater that is ultra cozy.  I love the fresh color and can picture wearing this well into Spring.  Since it’s such a neutral color I could have a little more fun with what to pair it with.  I am loving my new olive green pants, and these boots are a few years old but I found a similar pair here.  This hat gives it a little boho touch too…

Last up is a dressy take on the sweater, with a sweater dress!  This is such a fun option for holiday parties coming up.  One, the color is amazing!  Two, it’s super comfy!  And three, the possibilities are endless for what you can do with it!  Adding in fun accessories, dressing it up or down.  I wore my black tights, booties and added in this super cute clutch that is also perfect for the holidays as well.  I also threw in a cute black leather jacket to jazz it up a bit…

And there you have it!  You can shop more below… All of our favorite cozy sweaters for the Fall season in one place!

On the Hunt for our Favorite Fall Kimonos

Kimonos are one of our favorite items in our closets over at Beijos.  One, they’re easy to throw on and jazz up an outfit.  Two, if you’re feeling kinda yucky they cover a lot of territory, ya dig?  And Three, you can use them in so many ways – with jeans, shorts, a dress, a swimsuit… The options are endless!

I decided to head over to one of my favorite shops, Prism Boutique in Long Beach, to see what they had to offer.  They are the best in boho style and of course a kimono is just that.  I was on the hunt for a new Fall kimono and they didn’t disappoint with their selection.  With small business Saturday coming up next weekend I definitely want to support my local business owners, and Prism is one of them!

Keep scrolling to see my two favorites from their store, and you can see many more options on the site!  Also, more of my picks at the end of this post….

Novella Royale, another local brand which we highlighted a few months ago, has one of my favorite kimonos around.  It’s called the Jane robe and comes in so many different amazing prints.  I especially loved this one because the pretty green color just pops and can work year round.  Being a green eyed gal, I can’t resist a good green anyways, it just speaks to me!!

 I also found the basic white tank by Lacausa and the adorable hat by Brixton while I was shopping… Damn this place is bad for my budget!

My second pick is by the dreamy brand that is Jen’s Pirate Booty.  This is a kimono they do in cream all the time, but I thought this burnt orange color was just so perfect for Fall.  The lace detailing is so so gorgeous, you have to see and feel it in person to appreciate it.  Since this is so darn pretty, I wanted to make it a little rough…

To make it more edgy and less boho, I paired it with some ripped denim and a rocker tee from Midnight Rider!  And how amazing is that bag?!  I think I may need to go back for that one….  A little guest appearance by someone in the last shot too!

Where are you shopping for small business Saturday?!  And how do you wear kimonos?!  Please share below!  I’d love to hear your favorite shops to support and your style tips!

A Boho and Sparkly Friendsgiving for the Girls

Oh, you thought we were done with Thanksgiving posts?!  Boy were you wrong, we’re just starting!  Yesterday’s Friendsgiving was for the adults, today’s is for the little ladies!  I designed and styled this boho sparkly Friendsgiving with the help of a few of my talented friends like Wild Child Party and Blot & Dot.  I had my adorable god daughter Edie as inspiration of course, and let her enjoy with a few buddies!  Keep scrolling to see all of the pretty photos by Meredith of Zoom Theory and see more on 100LayerCakelet today

Let’s start with the invite, because, well, I always do!  I sent Cindy from Blot & Dot my mood board for this shoot and she just nailed it!  I love the copper she used on the invite and how it pairs well with the Erika tabletop collection from Harlow & Grey.  And how cute is little Parker showing it off?!

Let’s start with that balloon installation… I know, I know, it’s kind of becoming a thing with us, but I just can’t resist!  Wild Child Party is just so fun to work with and their balloon installations just make a party!  And when you mix in pampas grass, one of my absolute favorites, it takes it next level!

When I saw this collection from Harlow & Grey, I knew I wanted to make something pretty with it.  A girly friends giving was just the fit.  Here Come the Blooms played off of the pinks and the copper with the florals and they complimented the setting perfectly!  Blot & Dot did the abstract shaped place cards, and we even added more macrame with mini pieces made by Robyn Parker.

Ahhhhh, that pampas!

And the Fall leaves!!!  I love this time of year!

Now, on to the cutest little girlies!!!  These girls are decked out in cute outfits from Sweet Threads, mainly Paush Mini – an in house brand that we can’t get enough of!  Hey Girl!  I’m Thankful!  And like most best girlfriends, we’re all thankful for cute clothes, duh!  Check out all of their cute outfits, seriously I die and want to be them…

You can find Mikaela’s pretty dress here

Freyja’s adorable jumpsuit here…  Which may be my favorite!

Little Parker’s cute romper here

This little jumpsuit is by Harlow & Jade, comes in mommy sizes too… I may have to invest!! But I think it’s probably cutest on Miss River….

And last but not least is Edie’s stunner of a dress here

These girls had such a fun time playing dress up and just being girls together!  Can I do this with my friends?!  Jeez!

Now, you know I didn’t forget about the desserts!  And these are next level, specifically that stunner of a cake!  Beverly’s Bakery created something so beautiful, we really didn’t want to touch it!  But of course, we did!  And the cookies were adorable with our copper and navy detail continued and wording like “friends” and “thankful”.  Needless to say, the girls went nuts!

These cuties are just too much, and it got a little chilly, so obviously they needed their furs…

I need a beret in my life, but will never look nearly this cute!

And that’s a wrap! So much fun with these little ladies!!

A Modern & Simple California Outdoor Friendsgiving

One of the best things about living in California is the fact that we get to be outside all year round. Including the special days like Thanksgiving and Christmas! Often times you can find us barbecuing on these holidays! Each year my friends and I like to get together and have a Friendsgiving, it’s such a great kick off to the holiday season. This year we took advantage of the great weather and my friend Kevy’s newly renovated backyard! It was the perfect setting to gather us all and enjoy some delicious food and drinks.

This dinner is also featured on Style Me Pretty Living today!

Miss Multee created the gorgeous invite, her hand writing is beyond beautiful and set the tone for the evening perfectly.

The night started with the cheese board of all cheese boards from Colette’s Catering.  That is a great way to start a party if you ask me!  One Hope wine helped us pair each course with the perfect wine as well.  Wine and cheese, that makes everyone happy!

For the details we turned to Olive & Blooms for florals and again Miss Multee for menus and place cards. We used the colors of the tabletop and added in some deep berries and copper to finish it off. The beautiful florals lined the table and really brought a fall feel to the event, with a fresh and modern take. And everybody kept talking about the beautiful hand written menus, they were an ombre gold to copper that perfectly shined all night.

All of the pretty pillows and cozy blankets are from The Garage Collective, a local shop in Laguna Beach.  They have an amazing collection of home goods that I want through-out my entire house!

One of the things we don’t like about these get togethers is the clean up. I came across L’Entramise, a beautiful disposable line that was perfect for our table setting. Their pieces have a sleek and pretty look and are so well crafted. The best part was at the end of the night we could just toss everything away and not worry about the dishes!

Now, let’s party!!!  Pop some bottles!!

Love these girls!!  Friend time doesn’t happen nearly as much as I wish it did, but when it does it’s always fun!

Our friends at Colette’s Catering designed a menu with a modern take on Thanksgiving dinner. We had a delicious salad, roasted veggies and squab instead of turkey. They also put together a delicious dessert that had us all happy at the end of the. night.

Each year at this time I get a bit sentimental, it means another year is coming to an end. But ending it with great friends is always a good idea, and that’s why Friendsgiving is so special.


Hope you’re enjoying the holidays with your friends as well!
