This weekend was beautiful! Full of bike riding, farmers market browsing, and long talks with my love while sipping coffee and listening to the waves crash. We’ve had a long couple of weeks with the move and everything, so this small amount of alone time was much needed!

On this particular day throwing on a shirt dress, mules, and a hat was easiest, not to mention super comfy! Oooh and lets not forget about my newest obsession, my Coach Dinky Crossbody!! You can shop this look below …

I’m beyond excited to announce my newest collaboration with COACH 1941!! For years I’ve been a fan of their classic style and this 2017 Pre-Spring Collection definitely does not disappoint! The newest addition to my designer bag collection is the adorable Coach Dinky Cross body. Genuine glove-tanned leather makes this cutie feel completely luxurious while remaining versatile in use. If you’ve been following for a while you know that I have a thing for smelling new handbags, and not really to my surprise this one smells uh-mazing!

As soon as I opened the stunning COACH packaging I instantly thought of all the ways this cutie and I would be spending time together. I picture us shopping in downtown San Diego, I’ve dreamt of us strolling the local farmers markets together, even the occasional bike ride by the beach, and night out on the town. Lol sounds silly but yea, kinda true!

Today was cloudy and cold 😦 However, with tons of rain in our forecast (like seriously, 6 days straight) I had to get to the beach to smell the ocean one last time for the week. Maybe that’s weird to some, but I moved to San Diego for a reason, ok maybe for a couple of reasons, but one huge reason was to have the ability to visit the ocean as often as I like ❤

This for real, may be the softest cardigan I’ve ever owned!! I’m absolutely IN LOVE with it. Not just a little bit in love with it, like a lot in love with it. I tend to gravitate to cozy cardigans that end up being my ‘everyday, around the house, uniform’ and this sweater is just that! I almost feel as though I should apologize in advance for all the times you’ll be seeing me where it 🙂

Today’s post is short, but sweet! I spent some time in Venice Beach today with my honey, strolling around and people watching. Temps were in the high 60’s, perfect for wearing a light sweater and jeans. I bought these loafers yesterday because I just love the burgundy and mules are always super comfortable to me.

It’s still sometimes crazy to me that I now live only two hours from here! L.A. makes for the perfect weekend getaway! I consider myself a lucky girl, in more ways than one ❤ 🙂

Say Hello To Sexy Legs.

I first want to start out by saying I was not asked to write a review of this product here on Live By Ronni. Only to try it out and post on Insta ONLY if I liked it. Well, I f’ing LOVE it!! So much so,  that I feel compelled to tell EVERYONE I know about it and this includes you!

I’ve used many “self tanners” over the years and have yet to find anything that comes close to Say Hello To Sexy Legs. This uh-mazing product is the bomb, let me tell you why …

First of all, they clearly say on the packaging that this is NOT a self tanner and I have to say I agree! All the self tanners I’ve ever applied, expensive and inexpensive always take forever to dry. For me, this is a big deal. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve put a self tanner on that advertised a short drying time, never true! There always seems to be a left over sticky feel, literally taking hours to dry and if I choose to apply at night to save time in the morning, I usually wake up to weird lines and creases in random places, probably due to the position I slept. Say Hello To Sexy Legs advertises 3-5 minutes to dry and they mean it! The product, a Tinted Glow Gel, not really a lotion, foam, or spray, goes on smooth, absorbs quick, and dries FAST! I LOVE IT!! It’s a one time use and easily washes off your hands leaving no traces of any color.Oh and speaking the color, it’s perfect! Because it’s not a self tanner and only a tinted gel, it works with any skin tone which really eleviates the risks of buying the wrong tone. I also want to add that I have sensitive skin. As part of prep before I apply self tanners I always shave and exfoliate. It never fails that once I apply the ST I always breakout, leaving ugly red bumps and causing the dark lotion to settle on hair follicles, not a cute look. This is sooooo not the case when Say Hello To Sexy Legs was applied. The outcome was perfection.

Ok so, that’s all the technicals about the product that I’m impressed with, lets talk a little about the appearance. Besides it being shipped and arriving in record timing, the packaging is absolutely adorable, and to me, that matters! My absolute favorite part about this product is the Leg Highlighter! I love pretty much any bronzer and/or highlighter and having one specifically for your legs is awesome!! Especially this highlighter! It’s creamy and almost a pinkish sparkle, it’s beautiful. Once you’re done highlighting your legs you HAVE to use the contour stick. It’s perfect for contouring your calve and thigh muscles. My legs have never looked more amazing!

If you’re like me and love to keep a glowing tan through these cold winter months you have to try Say Hello To Sexy Legs!! Currently being sold in Sephora 🙂

Happy Monday! Today I wanted to share a few of my favorite neutrals as we begin our transition into fall. Coming from the Mid West, this year it feels a bit different for me since I’m now living in year round perfect weather (don’t be jelly ;). And although I know the chilliness is coming, I just can’t quit my current, favorite, color palette! So I’ll be doing my best to work it into my fall wardrobe whenever I can. I’m big on restyling pieces that will follow throughout the seasons and what I love about light neutrals is that you can do just that!! Blush and burgundy are my fav for fall right now (no surprise), even though blush is usually thought of for spring and even summer. I also love a soft, monochromatic palette with a destroyed denim thrown in for a pop of edginess. I’m currently loving …

#Currently Coveting

It’s that time of the year again! Actually, my favorite time of year, when the warm days have finally come to stay for a while, the trees and flowers are blooming again, and there’s a fresh smell of spring in the short distance. This, to me, is heaven. If you’re new to my blog you must know this about me, I HATE winter. I hate being cold. I can handle a few days here and there but to live in it 6 months out of the year, for me, is pure misery!

Oh and did I mention, my birthday’s in April?! So naturally I’m a spring chic. And since we’re on the topic of my birthday I’m now compelled to share with you a few things I’m currently coveting for this spring. Feel free to use this as a shopping guide, honey! (I know you’ll be reading this) xo …

Ok so, I was (this) close to purchasing an adorable blush Topshop jumpsuit from Nordstrom last season and have no idea why I didn’t, I’ve been kicking myself every since! I’m not the only one who does that, right? Anyway, it’s been on my mind. And even though I’m not seeing the one I long for from Topshop, I think this one is pretty cute too …

I’ve also been dying for this hat. You’ve seen it, we’ve all seen it, this hat was everywhere last summer! I picture myself laying on the beach or lounging by the pool wearing this and of course “wishing you were here” …

This is another one of those “I’ve tried them on a million times but always end up buying a  different pair” (or two pairs considering how pricey they are) situations. While I almost always tend to go for a less expensive pair, sometimes you just want to treat yourself to some luxury and these sunnies are all that and more …

Dior Reflective Mirror Aviator Sunglasses

Ok, these gladiator sandals are just a must. Last summer I wore my brown leather gladiators all the time, literally all the time, even getting a “what are those” while bike riding in Pacific Beach, CA (epic moment btw lol). I have them in black as well but damn, I need some gold. I love statement pieces and these sandals never fail …

So, last but not least and my most favorite of all, is this gorgeous handbag by Tory Burch. As soon as I seen it, I was in L.O.V.E. Like I can’t even explain it any other way than I have to have this bag and when I seen she also made a matching dress, the game was over! This is from Tory’s 2015 Resort Collection and although it may be last season (which I never care about) it’s definitely top on my list of spring must haves …
