Last weekend we welcomed our beautiful niece Bella Mar into the world and we couldn’t be any happier! We spent the day with our nephew Jax while we waited for Bella to be born. Michael and I had so much fun playing with kid toys, sharing goldfish and coercing him into taking his nap. (Quite tricky but we finally got him to sleep!) I cannot wait until we become parents, but in the meantime it’s very cool to have these two in our lives keeping us on our toes.

The weather in LA has been so crazy this winter! From temps in the 70’s (like this day) to non stop rain in the high 40’s! It’s been so up an down that my wardrobe choices have been all over the place. I didn’t want to over layer here with jackets and what not because I would’ve been way too hot and this vest is the perfect layer. I was initially going to wear tights with this cotton dress but with the wind I thought jeans were a safe bet. I used to wear jeans under everything in High School! I used to Sell clothes online and get pairs of jeans because I was that fascinated by the apparel. I love these Levi’s because they’re almost boyfriend jeans but tighter and add that extra casualness. This super comfy cotton dress in heather grey is under $15 and comes in 8 colors!  These heels are from Marshalls (you can find them in stores) but I couldn’t link them so I linked some similar one’s which I also love!! I’m really trying to post on my Insta Stories more consistently but I’m so new to it so I apologize in advance if you get sick of all my food pics! I have yet to enter the Snapchat world so I thought I’d start with this and see how I go. Let me know what ya’ll think or if you have any suggestions for me or things you would like to see. Happy Monday beautiful babes!

Ciao Bella’s Xx B.


Being able to share my style, travels, and beauty likes with you all makes me happy. And being happy is important. Thank you for coming along on this ride!


    • Thank You so much Darling!!!!! I just curled it all in the same direction and then brushed it out so it was bigger 🙂

  1. Love the outfit and those sweet family photos! Congrats on your new niece!

    I’ll have to try the Levi’s you have. I love the look of boyfriend jeans, but can never find any that don’t look too baggy on me. I’m a skinny jean girl, but it’s nice to be able to have a more casual option, too. Hope you have a wonderful week!
