ICMYI – Festival Season shopping is in full swing with Coachella just weeks away so I wanted to share one of my favorite trends I LOVE wearing out in Palm Desert and that is…yup, you guessed it – PALM TREES + PALM PRINT! I mean seriously, who doesn’t love palm print for summer anyway but when in Palm Springs, I think palm trees + palm print on your clothing is kinda a requirement, no? :p
Whether you are heading to the festival, lounging by the pool or off to some parties (or hey maybe you are just chillin’ at home + love some desert vibes)…these picks are perfect to keep you cool + stylish in the desert heat all weekend long!
With spring just around the corner, I am beginning to stock up on some of my favorite trends of the season…starting with my newest obsessionMULES!
I was hesitant about the whole walking around in slippers trend when I first saw everyone in LA rocking the Gucci Princetown Mules with the fur, but eventually I came around and found some mules that fit my style + are easy to wear whether it is for work or play! Whether you are all about neutrals, or like a pop of color or to shine with some metallic (or even some quirky messaging), spring 2018 is the season of the mule so it’s time to embrace it and stock up on your favorite styles!
Rounding up my favorite mules below based on price point (because you can embrace this trend on ANY budget)
I am all about testing out a trend at an entry level budget so I found that Target, Macy’s + DSW had some killer options when it comes to mules that won’t break the bank (plus since mules get worn out easily, it isn’t as devastating when you start seeing wear on them haha)
MEDIUM || $50 – $150
For medium range options I found a pretty amazing selection from Zappos + Nordstrom – all range from greta quality brands that won’t break the bank!
HIGH || $150+
High end options ranging from Gucci to Chiara Ferragni to Tod’s + more I found at Saks, Bergdorf Goodman + Neiman Marcus (what I love about these options are that they are pretty unique from store to store + have such intricate detailing that will set you apart from the crowd if you are willing to make the investment)
I am finally flying back from sunny filled Florida this weekend after a lovely two week vacation…much needed after being long distance with my boo for months! We celebrated our anniversary, my birthday and Valentine’s Day at Disney, Universal + at the beach…what more can a gal ask for?! #ThisIsMyHappyPlace
I am already plotting my next trip + I for sure want to make it another sunny paradise…so I decided to round up my favorite essentials for a beach getaway. Whether it’s a weekend trip or longer vacay, these accessories + must-haves will get you through your sunny trip in style!
Here’s my favorites across the board:
I am LOVING this ‘Life’s a Beach‘ hat from The Mint Julep! It was the perfect way to protect my skin from too much sun exposure + it is honestly the cutest for flatlaying on the beach haha :p P.S. they have TONS of fun floppy hat options with different sayings!
Tory Burch has always been my go-to when it comes to sandals. They are great quality, comfy + I tend to opt for a metallic hue that matches with every look + accentuates your tan on the beach 😉
I have been loving these fun sunnies from Diff Eyewear! They always have great sales, even better styles + I don’t stress about them getting scratched or anything at the beach because they have an affordable price point (as opposed to RayBans :p).
SWIMWEAR + COVERUPS
I had no clue Vera Bradley had such great swimwear + coverups till recently + now I am officially in love. They have great prints, cuts + styles that are easy to wear + comfy too!
Mike + I are off to Disney World in Orlando today (our flight is later on tonight) so I spent last night packing my life into 2 suitcases haha(see more on my instastories – MissyOnMadison)! We are celebrating my birthday which is just days away + our anniversary and what better place to do that than at the most magical place on earth – DISNEY! I have been such a Disney (and Universal fan) ever since I was a kid. My family used to go all the time + we went to all of the parks + would have breakfast + dinner with our favorite characters. Although I am turning 26 (crazy how fast time is passing by) I am still such a kid at ♥ so that’s why I am sharing some of my favorite Disney pieces to rock at the park or just in general!
I actually found this Mickey + Minnie tee for just $5 (YES just $5) at Walmart! It comes in a variety of sizes + is perfect if you are trying to dress for the occasion on a budget 🙂
These sneakers aren’t Disney related haha BUT they make for a comfy shoe to wear to the park + cost under $40!!! I was going to splurge on a bag too but this time didn’t but I am obsessed with all of these accessories below.
SHOES, BAGS + JEWELS
Now for the fun part…my Minnie Mouse Ears! Ok so Mike thinks I am crazy, but how adorable are these customized Minnie Ears I scored for under $40 on Etsy! I wanted to be prepared + save money before going to the park and discovered Etsy is filled with TONS of customized Minnie Ears.
Are you a Disney lover like me?
Comment below + let me know! (hehe rhymed unintentionally :p)
Valentine’s Day is just a few weeks away + one of the things I love most about Valentine’s Day is surprising my boo with some sweet + sexy lingerie. I’ve always struggled to find pretty lingerie that I feel comfortable in but also sexy enough that Mike will like…but I found it…Seven ‘Til Midnight! Their lingerie is affordable, great quality + comes in a range of sizes from regular to plus size. Whether you are searching for a sexy lace bodysuit to wear with a nice skirt or jeans for date night dinner or a sexy robe or outfit to surprise your special someone with, Seven ‘Til Midnight has something for every gal.
Lingerie makes me feel sexy + confident and that’s something that I know my partner loves, it’s funny how a little lingerie can do that isn’t it? Whether you prefer to go risque or just simple + sweet, lingerie is a way for women to express themselves + share their personal style in the bedroom just like they do in every day life ♥
Ready to find the lingerie that makes you feel sexy in your skin?
Well…almost that is hehe Valentine’s Day is quickly approaching + whether you will be celebrating with your boo, hanging with friends or simply giving yourself some much needed self love, a great way to get in a romantic state-of-mind is with a new look featuring the signature colors of Valentine’s Day…RED + PINK ♥
While I love all of the flowers + chocolate, I definitely don’t love the crowds at all the restaurants and bars on Valentine’s Day, so this year Mike + I are celebrating Valentine’s Day early while we are on vacation in Florida BUT I will for sure be treating myself to some of the pieces below to wear for the romantic evening. Even if you don’t have a date for Valentine’s Day, one of the funnest things to do is plan a girls night with your crew – anyone heading to happy hour followed by the new Fifty Shades? I kinda am excited to do that as well haha :p
I spent the weekend snuggled up in bed watching the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade + scouring the web for the best Black Friday + Cyber Monday sales I can shop now (since I am home alone in LA…why not shop, right? :p) From great deals on tech at Target to fine jewelry at Macy’s to handbags at Saks to clothing at Old Navy + Nordstrom and more…there are TONS of Black Friday + Cyber Monday sales shoppable NOW! Shop them + some of my favorite buys below!
