I am finally starting to feel like myself again after having a major allergic reaction + then being sick for what felt like forever (ugh don’t you hate when that happens…) Anyways…I am back to feeling like myself again + more motivated than ever to create some fun content! I am super pumped to head to a fun (and colorful) event tomorrow with Oh Joy to celebrate her collaboration with Erin Condren (ICYMI she makes the cutest planners that I am OBSESSED with) AND I am planning out some cute looks to shoot this weekend! While I am still deciding on what to do for Memorial Day one thing is for sure…I will be spending plenty of time poolside!
Back to reality…and this look. I have been dying to try the whole shirt dress trend and was super excited to find this piece from Eshakti. What I love about Eshakti is that they customize clothes to fit YOU! Yea…like how celebs have pieces custom made, you can too – crazy I know :p I am loving how you can put in your measurements on their site + also make tweaks to styles they have (like raise the hem line etc)…it is a new twist on shopping that I am all about!
I styled this dress with these great color block sling back heels I scored on sale from Ivanka Trump. Don’t they look just like the Chanel ones? Total ‘look for less‘ moment right here! P.S. they are also super comfortable! Score!!!
How cute is this bag? I got it from Evve Milano + am loving the fun design!
It comes with a long strap to wear as a cross body in additional to the top handle + it zips all the way around, making room for all of the essentials you need!
My sunnies are Le Specs (honestly my favorite high end looking yet affordable sunglasses brand).
I hope you all had a great weekend! Mine didn’t go exactly as planned :p I was supposed to head to Universal and instead I ended up in urgent care with my eye swollen shut, my hands beyond swollen I couldn’t grip a pen + basically the worst allergic reaction EVER. All these years I never had an allergic reaction to anything BUT apparently you can experience it at any age…the culprit? An oral acne medication…who would have thought. So I spent the weekend attempting to recover from being a lobster lol…here’s to hoping this week goes a lot smoother than this past weekend.
This look was actually shot earlier Saturday morning before my allergic attack happened haha I was enjoying the sunshine + great weather + this cute white dress from Tart Collections – it is the perfect summer staple…a little white dress!
I layered a denim jacket over it…this one is my favorite from Old Navy (on sale now).
My bag was my first ever Rodeo Drive purchase right before I moved to LA 3 years ago…it’s a Gucci soho tote (they discontinued the soho collection last year (ugh so frustrating I know) but you can find some styles still available on eBay or the Real Real etc).
My wedges are from Marc Fisher and they are super comfortable to wear all day long. Plus the tan color matches almost every outfit!
Will you be adding these pieces to your summer wardrobe?!
Temps are heating up in LA and that means…yes you guessed it, dress time! I normally live in dresses year round, but now I live in them even more so because of the warm weather. I am not one to wear sleeveless dresses without covering my arms (I guess my arms are an area I typically like to cover) but wearing a denim jacket in warm temps is not going to happen…so my solution? Styling it on your shoulders! Ok, to be honest I have seen this trend with blazers, moto jackets + more for years but felt I couldn’t pull it off…till I actually tried. Side note: Never be afraid to step outside your comfort zone when it comes to fashion, amazing things can happen that ultimately shape your personal style!
My dress is from one of my favorite online boutiques, Shop The Mint and it’s currently sold out but I linked to similar styles below (plus usually you can add items from their website to a ‘wishlist‘ and they will come back on the site for purchase relatively soon)!
My denim jacket is from Old Navy + currently On SALE! Who doesn’t love a good sale?! This jacket has lasted me years + is honestly a staple every gal should have in their closet! Dress it up or down, it is perfect for any occasion.
LA has been gloomy + rainy lately but that isn’t stopping me from wanting to bring some sunshine on with a bright look from Stay Warm In Style! First, some backstory behind this shoot. My BF + I legit drove around our new neighborhood for hours to try and find colored walls and the only one we discovered was this yellow wall haha Sooo get prepared to see tons of yellow background outfit shots on the blog :p
I always love a great off the shoulder moment so this dress was perfect because it combined my love of the cold shoulder AND fun florals for spring. Stay Warm In Style has great styles at affordable prices and the quality is amazing! I will for sure be living in this dress year round since it can be styled up or down for any occasion.
This dress retails for under $50 + the quality is great. I love the cotton material and it matches perfectly with my go-to spring accessories!
I paired it with my favorite tan espadrille wedges (that I must say are a staple this season and for seasons to come…I have had them for over a year now and love wearing them since they are so comfortable).
As for my bag…it is my newest obsession from GiGi New York. I love a great cross body bag that can hold all of my essentials + keep me styling throughout the day! It comes in various colors, so you’ll be sure to find your perfect match!
Spring is in full swing + one trend I can’t get enough of is POLKA DOTS! Ok…to be honest, I always loved polka dots…year round haha so spring is no exception! But polka dots on an off the shoulder blouse is even better. White jeans is also my signature go to for spring so pairing it with polka dots + a brightly colored pump really seals the deal!
I got this polka dot off the shoulder blouse from Mod Cloth a few months ago but I found a few similar styles below (all under $50).
I hope ya’ll had a fun weekend (especially if you were at Coachella)! My boo + I decided to hang by the pool, capture some content for the blog + do some interior decor shopping (I love when he gets just as obsessed with decor as I do haha :p).
I love a good spring look + even more so a new colorful wall! I spotted this one in Pasadena + decided it was the perfect wall to shoot this spring look in front of. I love new lightweight outerwear especially for LA spring weather since the weather has been all over the place lately. Over the weekend it was in the 80s, today the 60s and tomorrow it could be the 90s so layering easy pieces like this one from Nami Style are key!
I layered this cardigan over a simple black camisole (currently on sale from Kohls) + polka dot skater skirt. It’s great for work or play + can easily be dressed up or down with heels or flats or sandals.
I am a little behind with blogging after being swamped with event planning + work but here I am prepping for Coachella with one of my boho chic dresses paired with the cutest mini bag that is perfect to wear to any festival! Although I am not one to attend the actual festival (I am more of a party + hang by the pool gal), I always like to dress the part – I mean who doesn’t love an easy boho chic look? 😉
I love a great fit + flare dress, especially a fun printed dress like this one that is great to wear year round (not just for Coachella). The flared sleeves are an added bonus, I am all about a fun sleeve now-a-days!
I usually style one of these dresses with a lace bandeau underneath for added comfort + a little lace detail if needed (especially if it is a deep v neck cut).
This Rebecca Minkoff Mini M.A.B. tote is great for festival season since it fits all your essentials, is comfy to style + carry + matches with everything (especially when you style it with a metallic hue like this one)!
When it comes to shoes, I opted for a cute tan chunky heel bootie with peep toes. Perfect way to show off your new pedi but also keep your feet from getting dirty at the festival in flip flops or sandals (plus the chunky heel makes them very comfortable).
