Winter weather got ya down? Even though it has been a bit chilly here in LA, winter blues aren’t keeping me down. Instead of wearing neutral colors + always dressing cozy, I love adding a bit of chic to my winter wardrobe, especially with a great Pop Of Color like this one! 2019 is gearing up to be a busy year with business, the blog + travel so I am investing in multipurpose pieces that stand out + help me feel beautiful + confident. Funny to think a few years ago I would avoid maxi dresses like the plague (I always felt I was short + they would make me look stocky) but when I found this cobalt blue beauty it was love at first try on 😉 hehe Safe to say I will be wearing this beauty all season long + well into the spring.
I absolutely love this dress + while I got it at Rainbow Shops, I found a bunch of similar styles at varying price points below. Cobalt blue has always been a favorite color of mine. When I look at blue it just makes me happy + it really pops when you wear it!
I kept my shoes + bag simple since the dress really steals the show. You can’t go wrong with simple black ankle strap heels (definitely a pair of heels every gal should have in their wardrobe) + a classic black Gucci bag. This Gucci mini bag is great for night events, date night etc – it is convenient in size + has room for all your essentials.
I hope ya’ll had a great weekend! ICYMI – I did a fun shopping guide post yesterday rounding up some of my favorite sunnies to rock year round (the best trends, various price points + more). I also spent the weekend shooting some new looks I will be rocking well into fall…like this bright number from Simply Be! Pairing yellow + black gave me instant bumble bee vibes, and honestly? I am ALL about it!
I always love a fun pop of color so when I found this dress retailing for under $60 I knew I had to have it. First off, it fits like a glove + the color makes it a great statement look for any occasion. Whether you are heading out for date night or you are off to some back to back meetings, this dress is a great way to brighten up your wardrobe!
I paired it with a Gucci belt to add a little dimension + show off my waist. This Gucci belt was a great investment I made recently since it matches with everything, is affordable when it comes to designer accessories + it is high quality leather.
My bag is my go-to classic Chanel. I bought it in Paris and haven’t found it in the US but linked to a similar style here.
I love this bag + this was well worth the investment. You will never regret a Chanel. They retain value + are always in style.
When it comes to my heels, black ankle strap heels are a must-have for every gal’s wardrobe. Style them up or down, either way, they are a signature piece for everyone.
Love my hair? It’s thanks to my new amazing hair extensions from Hair Dreams! I am working on a full post all about them, so stay tuned ;p
I hope ya’ll had a great weekend! My boo + I had a busy weekend shooting new looks + fun content for the blog, along with a little date night trip to the movies to see The Equalizer – which was AMAZING btw! Pretty convinced Denzel can do no wrong :p hehe
One of the things I love about summer is wearing light colors + layers. This Simply Be white eyelet dress combines my love for both. For some reason when I see a white eyelet dress, I instantly think Sunday brunch or a trip to the horse races or a trip to a polo match, very ‘sophisticated chic’. With that vision in mind, I had to pair this dress with simple black accessories. If you ask me, black + white is always a good idea…
I love this eyelet dress because it is chic enough for the office or a special occasion, but it also keeps you cool in the warm summer temps (especially in LA it has been like 100 degrees)!
It is one of my favorite dresses I have scored on Simply Be because it looks so expensive but retails for under $60! It also fits true to size which is always a plus.
You can never go wrong with a little black heel! These Steve Madden black ankle strap heels are one of my current go-to’s because they match with everything + with the chunky heel, are comfortable as well!
You can also never go wrong with a classic Chanel. When in doubt, add Chanel hehe 😉
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.
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 😉
