Happy Monday Loves ♥ I hope you all had a great weekend – mine was filled with outfit shoots, long chats with my boo who is off in London (ICYMI my bf is working abroad for a while which is why I get to go to London next month to see him) + micro blading! Yes..I took the plunge and got my eyebrows micro bladed + it was AMAZING (more on that to come tomorrow). Anyways, before my micro blading appointment I did a little weekend shopping at a great local shop called Soto Boutique! That is where I snagged the dress I am wearing in this post (which for sure is coming in my suitcase to London btw haha).
I am a valley girl (meaning I live in Burbank – which I LOVE so the fact that Soto has boutiques in Sherman Oaks, Woodland Hills + Westlake makes shopping super easy and convenient). I tend to spend a lot of time in a store when I go shopping, I load up the dressing room + always try to pick pieces I can mix and match and wear over and over again – Soto is a great place to do that because they have everything from casual pieces to more formal pieces so you can snag an entire wardrobe in just one trip!
I love flowy dresses so when I spotted this beauty I knew it would be the perfect summer into fall transition piece. Soto Boutique is currently stocked up for fall so you can snag your back to school staples or your fall layers without dealing with crowds + long lines 😉 Oh how I love shopping local haha so much more relaxing than heading to The Grove or Beverly Center.
These shoes are my summer staple + honestly are great to even wear into the fall and beyond. This GiGi New York clutch is currently on sale AND it comes with a leather cross body strap as well so the bag can be worn multiple ways 🙂
Happy F R I Y A Y loves ♥ I am beyond happy that it is the weekend – I don’t know about you, but this week has been a long one and the weekend can’t come soon enough! What will I be up to? Shooting outfits at some new colorful walls in LA of course with my bestie 🙂
What can I say, when life gives you a colorful wall…shoot photos in front of it 😉 hehe This look was shot at one of my favorite colorful walls in DTLA! Polka dots in bright, bold colors? Count me IN! With a colorful backdrop comes a rather neutral look like this one featuring my new plunge style dress from Tobi!
This white dress is a bit sexy + sweet, with the plunge top + flowy bottom, it makes for the perfect date night dress (I will for sure be packing this for when I visit my boo in London next month)!
I layered it with this tan trench coat from AMI Clubwear. Now this coat is DEFINITELY coming with me to London since who knows what the weather will be like + it is such an easy to layer piece for day time trips, dinner + beyond 🙂
My heels are one of my favorite parts of this outfit…just look at the pearl detailing – honestly I can’t get over them!
Not only are they chic for a nighttime affair but they are comfortable too so they are the perfect shoe to wear to dress up any look (even jeans and a cute top during the day).
My bag is one of my signature go-to’s from Louis Vuitton. You can never go wrong with a little LV!
Happy M O N D A Y loves ♥ I hope you all had a great weekend! I finally got to catch up with my bestie who I haven’t seen in forever + naturally what did we choose to do? Take outfit pictures lol…We get a bit crazy on Sundays, what can I say hehe 😉 Isn’t it funny the things you choose to do with your bestie? For some reason Samie + I find it fun to either A) Relax in Palm Springs (which is where we are off to this weekend to celebrate her birthday!) or B) Take outfit pictures, occasionally another option happens C) Outfit pictures in Palm Springs haha A combination of both!
Whether it’s exploring new walls in DTLA or heading out to Palm Springs for a colorful door crawl, Samie + I bond over outfits, photography + our obsession for getting that perfect ‘money shot’ (which in our world means, the pic you will post on Instagram haha). Yesterday was one of those outfit filled days + that’s when I got to sport my new floral kimono from Tobi.com!
This lightweight kimono is perfect to layer over a chiffon camisole to beat the summer heat in LA! Whether you are heading to brunch with girlfriends, dinner with your boo or even the office, this floral kimono instantly adds a little extra something to an ordinary outfit. I opted to pair this kimono with a blush camisole + white skinny jeans for Sunday Funday brunch with Samie.
You can snag this kimono now from Tobi.com for 50% Off!! You know I LOVE a good sale + lucky for me, Tobi has great deals all the time…meaning I can snag stylish pieces at an affordable price point!
I love this little Louis Vuitton Toiletry Pouch but to wear as a clutch! It fits all my essentials + matches with everything, making it a great bag to wear for any occasion.
I also have a slight obsession with ankle strap heels, so it comes as no surprise that I have them in white (I also have them in nude, black, leopard print, pink, yellow + green haha) :p
Happy Tuesday ♥ So it may be a H E A T wave in LA LA Land (like seriously it is pretty much over 100 degrees everyday…ugh) but that doesn’t mean I can’t share this little look I shot back in the spring (you know before LA turned into a hot inferno haha). I continued my long lost love affair with Wild Blue Denim by styling their tunic with my favorite distressed skinny jeans. Honestly guys, their jeans fit like a glove. I am all about the jegging like material that hugs my curves + feels beyond comfortable…these jeans are always a win/win!
Keep scrollin’ to see a few more reasons as to why I L O V E this look…
This look is simply cute + comfy. It’s great for work or play and honestly the top hides any and everything (currently I am styling it with shorts to beat the heat).
What is special about this outfit is I am sporting the first ever designer bag I bought when I was 14…a DIOR!
I had saved up all of my money from scooping popcorn at the local movie theater to buy this baby right before I began freshman year of high school. While most girls were rocking Coach, I opted for Dior. I guess you can say my mama raised me with some expensive taste hehe 😉
Happy Humpday ♥ Ugh the struggle is seriously real today…after a 4 day holiday weekend the last thing I want to do is head back to the office but the show must go on, right? :p All I want to do is head back to the beach, have some BBQ + relax…but I guess this is what adulting is like haha So…I decided in order to cheer myself up I would take advantage of some of the 4th of July Sales I rounded up on the blog yesterday! What cheers ya up better than shopping, am I right? 😉
Since I am dreaming of another relaxing weekend, I am throwing it back to this floral look I wore at one of my favorite desert hot spots to relax at…the La Quinta Resort + Spa in Palm Springs! Palm Springs is one of my favorite places to go to, even in this hot summer desert heat, it is my little piece of paradise what can I say. Since it is way over 100 degrees there now, a kimono is the go to piece to wear when heading out at night after a super hot day.
I love a great floral piece…especially a kimono cardigan like this one. It is great to style with shorts, jeans, a dress or a skirt…very versatile for any occasion. I am linking to some of my favorites below.
Anytime I am in the desert I bring every pair of denim shorts I own along with chiffon lightweight camisoles that can be styled up or down depending on the occasion.
Happy Monday Loves + Happy Summer! ♥ I have been busy getting myself into a new fitness + healthy living routine…talk about a challenge but I am doing it. From finding a new gym to literally gutting my kitchen of all junk food, I am ready to finally get that ‘summer bod‘ back on track (better late than never…right? :p) Anyways, that’s why I haven’t been blogging as much since I am trying to jump into my new lifestyle which with work takes a little bit of a time commitment #TheStruggleIsReal…honestly, there just aren’t enough hours in the day! But…something there is most certainly time for? A new summer look that combines some of my favorite trends of the season – Off The Shoulder Tops + Platform Wedges!
This look is one of my favorites as of late…it’s comfy, casual + is great for those business casual days at the office or just for hanging with friends or date night. My top is from Wild Blue Denim but is no longer available so I linked to some similar styles below 🙂 I paired it with a bandage skirt since I feel like I haven’t worn one in a while and figure why not right? 😉
Happy Wednesday Babes! Sorry for being MIA but I was swamped this past few days because my dad was in town from New York! He visited me for Father’s Day and in one jam packed weekend we headed to Palm Springs, Santa Barbara, Beverly Hills, Weho, Hollywood + more. From heading to the Petersen Automotive Museum to check out some sweet rides to visiting the desert + stopping along at local stops, this weekend was filled with tons of adventure!
Anyways…now that I cleared up why I’ve been MIA the past few days, back to this gorgeous outfit that combines my two favorite things: a classic look + P O P s of color! From the cobalt blue pencil skirt to a chic white boyfriend blazer + white heels, this look is great for date night, the office, happy hour + beyond (and with affordable prices…this outfit is a MUST).
I scored this skirt + body suit from this new site called ‘Jewel Toned‘ that has the best shapewear for work + play.
This skirt has lace trim, a great fit + is only $38! The bodysuit that is great for hitting the club (not that I really hit the club ever haha) or just any occasion is only $61 (it also has adjustable straps to get the perfect fit).
