The Not-So-Parisian Look From Paris

It's been a minute since I've actually written a blog post so first, a quick life update. If you don't usually follow me on social media, I decided to take the last month off of my regularly scheduled life to travel the world. In the past few weeks I've been to Dubai, France, Amsterdam, Ireland, and Iceland. Also, I flew over the North Pole, which doesn't count, but was a highlight for me seeing the icebergs, even if it was from an airplane window. If you follow me on IG stories you may have seen this, butttt if you're not following me on Instagram you can find that here.

So, you see, I had the option of spending some of my time away in my hotel room writing blogs and editing, or actually seeing this place we call planet earth. I chose the latter, and I'm feeling so refreshed and like I have a really good idea of what it is exactly I'm doing here now. I'm so excited to share some of the content we created while we were away.  Thank you all who DO follow me on social media that have reached out and/or stayed patient while I went rogue and posted nothing related to style and instead posted photos of antelopes, food, and churches. I love you.

I'll be sharing tons more stories, travel tips, and photos from the trip but for now let's get to today's post, shall we?! One of the best things about traveling to me is actually observing other cultures and seeing things that are so different about L.A., which I call home. While Paris is a large city like L.A., I found it pretty much nothing like California at all, and that includes the fashion. Let's just say I got A LOT of looks in the outfit I'm wearing here. Obviously, I didn't give 2 f*cks, but it was pretty funny to see how many French women were ogling my tights as I walked past them. Mix fishnets with a pink furry coat, floral midi dress, and combat boots, and I kinda sorta stuck out like a sore thumb.

So, WHY isn't this look Parisian? Well for many of the reasons above. Parisians tend to opt for understated, minimal, conservative style. Best way to tell a woman is French is by her no fuss hair and makeup paired with an almost entirely all-black ensemble. They're also all thin, smoke cigarettes, and drink red wine at 2 pm on a Tuesday. Chic? Oui. Colorful? Non. 

I'm sorry to all of the beautiful French people who I offended with my tights and love for faux fur. Check out the full look that mon amour, Brian Gove, shot on our second day in Paris. Again, LOTS more updates from abroad and otherwise coming very soon, I won't abandon you all again anytime soon :) Thank you again for all of the continued support, it means so much to me.

24 Hours in New York City
The Style Sauce 24 Hours in New York Style blog

What would you do if you had 24 hours in New York? Well, that recently happened to me, and it just so happened to be my birthday that day, too. Being a person born two days after Christmas isn't always the most fun, but it does have it's perks. Perks include: everything being decked out and festive, fun Christmas/ New Years things to do, and snow. The cons include places like Bryant park ice skating rink being SUPER packed, everyone traveling/ being out of town, and snow. I put snow as a pro and a con because while I love it, not everyone does. So here's what we did given those points. Come along on a day in New York with me!

To start, we decided we wanted to explore a new part of the city I hadn't seen before, so we headed to Brooklyn. The day started with a coffee from Sweat Shop, the cutest little coffee shop a stone's throw from the main drag in Williamsburg.

I decided to wear all pink on my birthday, because it's my favorite color right now and I'm really into monochrome dressing at the moment! Why wouldn't you wear all pink when given the choice, am I right? I actually wasn't cold during the day at all with a beanie and second layer under the sweater, and over the knee boots are surprisingly practical for walking around the city and keeping your legs warm. A backpack is a great way to carry more stuff than a cross body will hold while still being portable and chic.

After coffee I changed into jeans and a long camel coat, because this California girl was getting COLD. Our friends Cole and Caroline then took us over to Dumbo, which was another first for me. If you've never been, for sure go to this area to check out the views!

We also stopped into a few shops, one of them was an awesome vintage store where I swooped a 1970's silk scarf and tried on these 80's french sunglasses.

After we explored Dumbo, we headed to Manhattan for some more site seeing and dinner. First we (attempted) Bryant Park for outdoor ice skating, but it was wayyyy too busy. We had to settle for sipping on a whisky on their patio while watching the ice skaters instead of participating, which was obviously totally fine.

After taking in the ice skaters at Bryant Park it was time for dinner, and we headed for Bill's Townhouse, an upscale French style dining experience I will NEVER forget. To say our meal was decadent would be an understatement. We were truly spoiled and everything was absolutely incredible. We noshed on everything from oysters to lobster and steak. SO GOOD! I can't wait to go back.

The rest of the evening consisted of bouncing around some of New York's awesome bars and enjoying the evening with friends, much of which is a little fuzzy and I don't have the greatest pics of, ha! That being said, I could not have asked for a better day in New York, and can't wait to be back! All in all, it was a great success. We ate, we drank, we shopped, and it was perfect. 

What are some of your favorite things to do in the Big Apple? I'd love to hear for my next trip!

Palm Springs Diary: August 2016
the style sauce palm desert fashion blog free people

Palm Springs is always one of my favorite places. I love getting away to the desert for no reason at all to unwind and get some sun. I usually avoid the desert in the Summer because of the beating heat, but my sister has never been there so we decided to go for a weekend a couple weeks back. 

I stayed at The Ace Hotel and Swim Club , like almost always, which is great for just relaxing. It was nice to shoot some pics, sip on cocktails, swim, and bask in the 108 degree rays. 

What to wear in the desert? Well, when it's this hot, the answer is not much. It was mostly bikinis and minimal dresses/ skirt and top combos that won't stick to you. At night temperatures dip but it's still 90 so need for any heavy layers or anything, ha. Whatever isn't fussy or  does not require too much thought is usually the best. 

Shop some of my favorites looks below for a weekend in the desert!

Since I've been traveling, like, a TON, one of my favorite essential is these Sudio Wireless Headphones - the Iphone 7 came out today and as all of you know, it does NOT have a headphone jack. Fortunately, these beautifully designed Swedish earbuds from Sudio are bluetooth only and come with a great leather pouch to match . They're only around $110 dollars  - but you can shop them with code THESTYLESAUCE for 15% off. I have the Vasa Bla model and LOVE them- the quality is excellent and I love how pretty they look in my ears. They've been great travel companions.

What are some of your favorite things to do and places to stay when in Palm Springs? Would love to hear your recommendations for next time I decide to visit the desert.
