Hello friends! I apologize for my delay in posting these past two weeks. Things have been slightly crazy around here. First, we moved into our apartment two weeks earlier than expected which meant we were living on only an air mattress for a few days. Then, the baby and I had a small scare and I ended up in the hospital for a few days. Thankfully, everything is fine now but I have doctor’s orders to slow down. Which means only one small trip out of the house a day.
While my outfits most recently have consisted of Lululemon and sneakers, not extremely fashionable. I have been busy buying (mostly on-line) items for our new home. Above is how our dining room is starting to come together. We ended up with an oval table vs. rectangle because of the shape of the room. I am still looking for a rug but plan to use most of our artwork from our travels to brighten up the space. What do you think so far?
Happy November! Can’t believe I am 33 weeks pregnant today and we will meet our little man next month! Crazy how time flies.
Since we landed in SF on Oct 2nd I think I have seen close to 30 different apartments if not more. At first, I would wear cute little ballet flats or booties to hike up the hills and stairs at each apartment. However, I’ve now come up with the perfect uniform for apartment hunting, converse sneakers, skinny jeans and an oversized sweater. Add a topknot to my head and I look like I’m on repeat everyday of the week. I’m pretty sure the hotel staff (where we are currently living) thinks I don’t change my outfits and I am OK with that.
What is your fall uniform? Hope your having a great week!
It’s everyones favorite time of year, Shopbop Friends & Family where everything is 25% off at my favorite on-line retailer. Above are a few items that are on my wish list. A comfy poncho to cover my growing belly and stylish flats because wearing heels has become of a bit of a challenge.
Are you partaking in Shopbop’s Friends & Family? Happy Hump Day!
I have a confession, we only took outfit photos one of the seven days we spent traveling from Dubai to San Francisco. I was a bad fashion blogger. In all honesty, I was just exhausted (moving half way around the world at seven months pregnant can do that to you) and barely had the energy to go explore let alone take photos. So please enjoy these photos of NYC and just imagine me wearing a similar outfit in Paris and in DC.
Hope everyone had a great weekend!
We made it safely to San Francisco a little over a week ago. It’s taken me almost a week to recover from all the traveling, while also looking for our new home. A big thank you to all of my wonderful friends who guest posted while we were making our way from Dubai to San Francisco.
While the trip was exhausting for LJF and myself, it was somewhat difficult on little Harley. Seeing as he had never spent anytime outside of Dubai (minus his birth in Hungry and shipment to Dubai at a very early age), experiencing Paris, NYC, Washington DC and now San Francisco in a two week time span, has been a bit of a culture shock. However, he’s taken it in strides and is adjusting to his new city. Below are some of my favorite photos of Harley traveling with us. Make sure to follow all of our adventures on instagram @amyfohr.
After almost a week of traveling, LJF, Harley and I have landed in San Francisco. We have already started to look for apartments and thankfully Target is only a short drive away. Outfit posting will resume on Monday, till then make sure to follow our adventures on Instagram @amyfohr. Thanks for reading and have a great weekend!
Today, Sheree from Its Not That Deep is guest posting for me. I’ve always loved Sheree’s style and think that she pulls together effortless looks. Only fitting that her post today is about how to achieve the effortless look. Make sure to stop by her blog and check it out. Thanks so much for helping out today Sheree!
Greetings everyone! Today I have the fantastic Alyssa from The Glossy Life guest posting. I’ve been a major fan to Alyssa and her blog for sometime but only recently connected when I asked for her help with guest posting. Make sure to stop by her blog and check out the fabulous recipes, style ideas and her daily musings. Thanks so much Alyssa for helping me out today!
Hi Leopard and Lillies readers! I’m Alyssa from The Glossy Life, and I’m thrilled that Amy asked me to take over for a day while she’s making the major (and exciting!) move to California.
One of the many things I admire about Amy (along with her impeccable fashion sense, of course) is how effortless and stylish she makes traveling look. I don’t know about you guys, but I tend to be a bit of a hot mess when I travel–and not in a good way. We’re talking hair all over the place, a less-than-flattering outfit and a mismatched luggage set. I decided to take a cue from Amy’s effortless ease and post about my ideal travel essentials–everything from a cozy, comfy and versatile outfit, to in-flight entertainment (you HAVE to board the Scandal train if you haven’t already), to quick beauty fixes (love Miranda Kerr’s new line, Kora) and of course, a little treat for Harley the pup (who at this point has a better passport than I do!). What are your stylish musts while traveling?
Sweater, Topshop | Boyfriend jeans, J Brand | Floral scarf, Joules Bloomfield | Ankle booties, Kork-Ease | Leopard satchel, Elizabeth and James | Passport case, Kate Spade | Josie Maran Argan Infinity Cream | KORA Organics Balancing Rose Mist | Brain on Fire, by Susannah Cahalan | Scandal, Season 2
Thanks again, Amy for letting me post–and safe travels the rest of the way!
Today Ashley is guest posting for me. Ashley works as a stylist in LA and I absolutely adore everything she wears. With both of us now living in the same state perhaps we might be able to meet IRL. Make sure to stop by her blog and check out more of her amazing style! Thanks so much Ashley for helping out this week!
Hi Leopard and Lilies readers my name is Ashley and I write the blog Ash ‘n’ Fashn. I am so happy to be filling in for Amy while she prepares for her move back to the states and jets all around the world… are you as jealous as I am?
I thought I’d share a few of my favorite recent looks. I’m a wardrobe stylist in for an entertainment news show in LA so a typical day for me can be anything from working on a live TV set, doing pulls at showrooms or trying to stay out late at an event (a struggle since I’m a total homebody).
When I’m on set I like to be comfortable and what’s more comfort chic right now than boyfriend jeans?! Now my rule of thumb when wearing looser pants is to not wear a flat shoe, however since I’m standing for hours at a time I like to go with a lower wedge.
I love to visit showrooms, it’s like shopping for free… of course it’s only borrowing, but still it’s so much fun! Again I like to be comfortable but I also want to show off my own personal style. I had so much fun wearing this graphic printed sheer tank, infamous Zara skort and sneaker wedges. A true LA look.
For a daytime event I like to go a little feminine. The lace dress made me feel like I was ready for a tea party – which I LOVED. It’s so fun to play dress up!
Now for events at night, it’s a whole different ballgame. You can really have fun with style and pretty much anything goes. Since this maxi skirt had two slits I decided to pair it with a simple tank. I felt like it was subtle, yet sexy.
Thanks for reading and thanks so much for having me Amy!
Greetings everyone! LJF, Harley and I safely landed in America last Thursday. We’ve spent the last few days in NYC visiting with friends before we make the journey to the west coast. (follow along our trip with me on instagram @amyfohr)
Today, my blog friend Jenn from The Stylish Housewife is guest posting. I’ve been a fan to Jenn’s blog long before I started a blog. She’s been a fantastic blog buddy and I look forward to meeting her IRL now that we will both be in the same state. Thanks so much Jenn for guest posting for me today! Make sure to stop by her blog and check it out.
Hi guys! I am Jenn from The Stylish Housewife and I am thrilled to be guest posting for Amy today! I can’t remember how we found each other on the blogoshere but I DO remember falling in love with the LWD in one of her first posts! And we’ve been blogging buddies ever since. Hoping we finally get to meet IRL at LuckyFabb West now that she will be on the west coast!
Today I thought I would share my favorite trend for Fall…faux leather! When I bought these shorts last year, I had no idea that they would be such a staple in my closet. In fact, I love them so much that I just bought them in cognac too! They are perfect for our mild CA Fall weather and will look super cute in Winter with some fun tights! To see more of my fave leather pieces, visit my blog.
