Feelin’ Lucky? Well you should because A) It’s FRIDAY + 2) Tomorrow is St Patrick’s Day!
ICYMI I am Irish so I am naturallylucky – JK I wish it was that easy haha but one thing I do feel on St Patrick’s Day is GREEN! I love a good pop of color any day of the week so why not embrace a little green to celebrate. Whether you are heading to a local parade or just going to the bar with friends, feel a little lucky with a pop of green!
Well I have to admit, I am feeling a little lucky now-a-days because this weekend my boyfriend and I are moving in to a new place! We are super excited and I for one cannot wait to furnish and decorate the entire place from top to bottom (it will be #instaworthy…shhh don’t tell the bf haha :p) A new town, a new space + a clean place to come up with more creative content?! What is better than that? hehe And maybe we will have a drink to celebrate who knows 😉
Any excuse to wear color…I take it! This green dress was a clearance find from Nordstrom Rack (I actually scored it for just $5!!) but I linked to some similar styles below.
I paired it a faux leather moto jacket (making this look perfect for an outdoor parade or a night out at the bar). My current favorite is this style from ASOS.
Not ready to sport a bright colorful dress? How about adding a ‘Pop Of Color‘ to your look with a great pair of shoes + bag?
Here are some of my favorite green accessories at various price points ♥
I hope ya’ll had a great weekend! I am prepping for another crazy week filled with work, events, shoots + prepping to move. Yup, Missy is moving and I can’t wait!! I spent the weekend furniture shopping and designing my perfect home office space and living space with my boo. We are moving into a new place + that means plenty of decor + interior design content to come (because who doesn’t obsess over HGTV specials + dream of designing their home that way? Am I right?! :p)
We move in in the next few weeks so it’s a lot of picking styles, laying out the space + envisioning what it’ll be like to live there. I for one can’t wait for a bigger place because my apartment is a bit cramped so we are moving a little ways from LA where there is more space + less congestion…I may be a city girl but honestly as I have gotten older, I much prefer a quiet, humble abode. Anyways, to take my mind off the hectic moving plans (and little boxing up my three closets worth of clothes haha) I am taking a look back at one of my casual easy looks I wore in Paris over the fall that is a perfect spring transition look!
Looking back at these photos has me dreaming of my next trip to Paris. I honestly loved this city (mainly due to it’s beauty + duty free shopping) hehe but also because it’s a place wear casual chic is the style of choice. I lived in easy dresses + cardigans when I was there in the fall, and this look was one of my favorites.
Old Navy is my go-to when it comes to fit & flare dress options. Whether you like a v-neck, square shape or round neck, they have different silhouettes, colors + designs that fit your look + taste. In my opinion you can never go wrong with a simply black fit & flare like this one, so I tend to pack this with me on every trip since you can dress it up or down depending on the occasion! Best part? 90% of the time they are ON SALE from Old Navy (especially online, they have discounts daily)!
I am also loving a great duster cardigan like this one to style with a dress, jeans or even shorts + a blouse. It is easy to layer over + looks a little dressier than your average sweater cardigan.
This Louis Vuitton Pouchette Metis is now my everyday go-to bag. It fits everything + was the most convenient bag to wear around Paris while exploring. I added a little puff keychain just because I always love a little ‘Pop Of Color‘ hehe :p
My shoes are currently under $50 from GUESS and they are the perfect spring shoe with their cork design + comfy heel!
An easy spring look with just three pieces? Count me in!
ICYMI – a NEWinstagram worthy experience has come to LA…Candytopia! Think Museum Of Ice Cream except dedicated to all things CANDY. From life-size art made out of everything from Twizzlers to gum drops to jelly beans + more to a pool filled with marshmallows to fun photo moment backdrops perfect for your insta feed, Candytopia has got it ALL! See some of my favorite photo opps below, along with details on the outfit I wore!
So I totally didn’t do this fun room justice because I am way too serious to do silly poses where it looks like you are falling down into a hole…the room was specifically designed for that but instead I stuck with the traditional blogger pose in front of a colored wall haha!!
What is better than living on a cloud? I LOVED this backdrop for a few reasons…OK maybe just one…it matches my Instagram feed perfectly haha!! (and my outfit :p)
If you are thinking of heading to Candytopia I highly suggest you purchase your tickets ahead of time online to reserve your spot, if you can try to go during the week during the day so you aren’t rushed during your photo opps AND be prepared to snack on tons of candy!!
P.S. I highly suggest you bring your camera, iPhone works great as well but there isn’t natural light so you may want to play with lighting settings on a DSLR for the best photo quality for posting 🙂
Living in a D R E A M…because this coat is beyond warm + fuzzy so it feels like I am living on cloud nine ♥
Funny enough it has been pretty chilly in LA so I have been getting a lot of use out of this coat that I originally got to wear in London when visiting my boo. I thought it was marshmallow chic haha or a teddy bear coat but instead my bf named me WAMPA because of it. I had absolutely no clue what the hell a wampa was (apparently a Star Wars reference) but because of this coat my new nickname was born so now my bf calls me wampa (even if I am not wearing this oversized fuzzy coat) haha :p
I am obsessed with this coat (and apparently so is everyone else) because I have been seeing fuzzy teddy bear coats everywhere! They aren’t just stylish but also quite warm + cozy.
What accessory pulls every outfit together? SUNNIES! I have been wearing these Diff Eyewear sunnies left + right (I just can’t get enough of them). What I love about Diff Eyewear is their endless selection as well as their charitable initiatives – shopping + feeling good about it is something I am a big fan of 🙂
I hope you are all getting some much needed rest + relaxation (and maybe a little sun depending where you are)! I am still in a vacay state-of-mind so I wanted to share a fun summer getaway inspired look to warm things up (it was actually pretty damn cold in LA yesterday + it made me desperately want to fly back to Florida haha). The best part about vacations (other than the fact you are on vacation) is all of the cute tropical inspired looks you can create.
I for one was all about straw accessories while away + still am…they are super cute + easy to style on vacation without worrying about getting them dirty with sand etc. Check out the full look below ♥
I lived in this chambray dress while in Florida. It’s super comfy + chambray is great for warm climates + matches with everything while away.
I linked to some of my favorite chambray dress options below!
As for my accessories – straw all the way! This floppy hat + tote have been my obsession…how can they not be? You look at them + just think vacation!
My wedges are an older style from Tory Burch (no longer available) but I linked to some similar new styles for the season below.
Valentine’s Day may be over but…love is still in the air if you ask me♥ I found this shoot I did at the ‘Love Wall’ in Culver City a year ago + decided it was about time to post it…ya know because why not 😉 That’s the part I love about living in LA, there are so many fun walls all over the city just waiting for the perfect insta snap to be taken in front of! Hey…it’s a blogger’s paradise! This wall was crazy busy the weeks leading up to Valentine’s Day for obvious reasons but what I also found was cute was that it wasn’t just bloggers taking photos. It was couples taking engagement photos, little kids having their parents take their photos making silly faces etc. It’s kinda cute how a colorful wall can bring joy to so many different people of all different walks of life…the love wall…spreads…L O V E!
Now back to my look…since yesterday’s post was a date night look in front of the Love Wall, I wanted to share a dress casual look for work today…you know, switch things up!
Valentine’s Day is just a day away and that means finding that last minute outfit! Luckily I rounded up a few of my go-to little red dresses for the special night all available in store + online (with an in store pickup option). I for one am super excited for V-Day since this past weekend was my anniversary + I spent it sick as a dog in bed sooo I am looking forward to a romantic date night with my boo. After an amazing week at Universal + Disney, I ended the trip on a real high note with a lovely ear infection + horrible cold…yea talk about fun :p I guess life couldn’t be all fun + games huh? haha Anyways…to distract myself from this terrible cold, I am dreaming of the perfect date night look.
ICYMI – I rounded up some of my favorite looks for the day of love a little earlier in the month here. I think I am going to go for a little red dress like this one just to stay festive for the occasion hehe :p
It wouldn’t be Valentine’s Day in LA without taking photos in front of the ‘Love Wall‘ in Culver City…There was a legit line to take photos in front of this wall (and we shot this towards the end of January) haha but hey in such an insta-friendly town what do you expect 😉
I paired this red fit & flare with black ankle strap heeled sandals + my favorite Gucci mini bag which is perfect for date night. It has enough room for all of your essentials + is easy to wear for dinner + even dancing afterwards (if you are into that sort of thing)…my babe + I aren’t big dancers haha so we will just stick with the dinner 😉
Funny enough I will be celebrating Valentine’s Day not on V-Day. While I love the occasion, when you go out on V Day I find menus to be changed, restaurants to be crowded + overall less romantic. So my honey + I are opting for celebrating Valentine’s Day over the weekend instead so we can actually order what we like off the menu AND can avoid crowds! Now that sounds like the perfect plan to me 😉
