Well hello, BeauTeas! We’re back with some brand new Tea, but this time the Tea is going to be on me! Recently, I was given the wonderful opportunity to visit sunny LA for a beauty conference. Being the style savvy women that we are here at Styled to a TEA, my initial thoughts were “omg what am I gonna wear? Beautiful palm trees with a very light breeze during the winter months, LA is known for its sunny weather, but it gets a little cool at night. I definitely took advantage of the weather.
WHAT I WORE:
My first event in la was a beautiful roof top party at the amazing omni hotel. Mellow music and rooftop fire places, this event was all that and more! The first look I went for was a color block black and white blouse from hm with a small key hole opening in the back of the shirt. I paired the blouse with pale pink skinny jeans also from H&M. I chose a really dark affordable matte lip from Ruby Kisses called Purple Affair. I’m very low key when it comes to my clothes, I love to be comfortable and classy.
The next morning I had to wear all black so instead of me choosing basic black leather leggings. I chose a pair of black leggings with suede side panels and a very flowly satin black blouse, paired with Sam & Libby open toed flats with silver details. A simple winged liner with lots of golden highlight to give me the sun kissed glow I was going for.

My last event was an award ceremony which required cocktail attire. I wore a golden silky dress that had beautiful flowing sleeves. With a little makeup, flirty lashes, and some accessories I made this dress work. I added a rose gold necklace, and went for a copper orange eye using Pink Bronze Pigment from MAC. For my shoe, I wore a very comfortable black chunky platform heel. This look was very simple and received tons of compliments!
