We've recently had a decent amount of rain here in LA, along with some chillier temperatures.  It's not quite warm enough to wear Spring wear, but not cool enough to wear winter pieces.  What's a girl to do?  Wear tights! 

Back home in Ohio, I used to wear tights all the time in order to stay warm in those frigid temps, but when I moved to LA, I sorta forgot about my love for tights.  I grabbed a couple pairs while shopping for my trip to NYC for Fashion Week (see my Haul video here!) and I was reminded how much I love wearing them!  Tights are just a really cute way to change up a look, see this post for more inspiration

So if you're hankering for a short dress, but the weather just isn't cooperating, throw on a pair of tights!  Fleece lined tights are even available at Target!

Weekly Gorgeous Grams

I am always surprised when I go to create my Weekly Gorgeous Grams post at how many photos I posted to Instagram the week before...  It just never feels like that many until I see them all lined up lol! 

So here's my week in photos :) 

A little side braid action with a messy fishtail braid.

Super yummy lunch at Granville Kitchen: Ahi tuna sandwish and delicious sweet potato fries.

Braids, braids, and more braids!  This simple dutch braid into a bun is an easy style that perfect to be paired with just about any casual look!

It's time I come clean...  I'm addicted to Ramen.

You saw this hairstyle in last week's Gorgeous Grams post, but the tutorial for this look went live on my YouTube Channel on Friday.

I just really enjoy this look because it's me.  This is what I look like on any given day...  Comfy top (LOVE this shirt!!) and jeans!

I don't think I even need to explain this one...

My sweet girlfriend, Taylor Madu, release her first single, "You Are Life" and 100% of the sales benefit young moms and their babies.  Read more about her here.

I joined SnapChat and Vine this past week so come over and follow me! I'm AngelaLanter on all social media!  :)

Here's a little roundup of my four top looks from February!

Surprise...  More braids!  This style is a broad/fishtail combo with four braids in total.

I wore this cozy look on Monday to stay warm on a chillier LA day...  This sweater jacket is my favorite piece to wear when it's chilly outside!

It's almost Springtime, so I had some fun the other night playing around with new products and created this lavender eyeshadow look.  The best part?  Those are my REAL lashes!!  Check out my very FAVORITE mascara that I'm wearing in this photo here.


I devoured this yummy avocado toast during yesterday's lunch at Le Pain Quotidien!

Last but not least, a little snapshot of some of my new beauty goodies just waiting to be payed with.  :)

Happy Hump Day!!  Also, be sure you're following Hello Gorgeous on Bloglovin' too!
