Ever since I was a little girl I always loved getting dressed up, taking pictures + dreaming of a fabulous NYC adventure. While I live in LA now a few things still remain the same, I love taking pictures, I love dressing up AND I still love going back to NYC to shoot my Carrie Bradshaw esq moments. This Carrie moment was shot at the New York Public Library, a library so beautiful it actually makes me want to read haha :p
Anytime I want to live my best Carrie Bradshaw life I include a tulle skirt. For some reason a tulle skirt just makes me feel like Carrie so I stocked up and ordered this skirt from Amazon in EVERY color it comes in…I’ve styled it so many ways for so many different occasions but this shoot is by far one of my favorites.
I paired this tulle skirt with an off the shoulder bodysuit, another key item in my wardrobe that I have in every color because when I find something I love, I buy it in every color!
I love bodysuits because they suck everything in and are super flattering when paired with the right pieces, for me it is A Line fit + flare skirts.
I love adding some nice accessories to the look so I paired the look with one of my signature Gucci belts. I love this belt so much that I bought it in every color it comes in to match every ensemble.
For shoes I paired the look with pumps that make a statement, cobalt blue pumps! I wear these all the time because they just brighten up any look.
I don’t know about you but anytime I can wear some blue it’s a good day! I love a bold blue number no matter what the occasion…so it only made sense to style an all blue ensemble for the perfect winter into spring look. It has been quite chilly in LA leaving me bundling up so this look is perfect for just that!!
I paired it with my go to faux leather leggings (these are a total must have in my opinion) that are perfect for day time at the office or date night paired with a cute crop top etc.
Since I have been extra cold lately I had to layer a chic cobalt blue coat over this ensemble. I linked to a few of my favorites below…you can never go wrong with a little POP of blue.
A blue coat wasn’t enough blue for me so here comes some more with my shoes + bag!
Investing in some cobalt blue pumps + a cobalt blue bag are perfect for your wardrobe. I style them all the time for work with an all black outfit or during the spring with some white etc to make a colorful statement while still looking chic.
This week has been an absolute whirlwind. From busy days at work, to playing hostess to my brother who is in town visiting to working on blog content…there simply aren’t enough hours in the day to get everything done! This weekend is BeautyCon and I am super excited to see all of my favorite brands AND get tips from my fav beauty Youtubers on how they get their makeup looking flawless. With BeautyCon being the IT event of the weekend, that means I need to pick the perfect look + I think I found it from Habitual!
For some reason this look reminded me of the 2000’s. Maybe it’s the denim skirt (I haven’t worn a denim skirt in forever) haha but when I put this look together I instantly had Britney Spears and Paris Hilton come to mind :p
This skirt from Habitual is super fun for summer with it’s pleated, asymmetrical design and I paired it with this mesh button down blouse, also from Habitual (I think the mesh is a fun twist on a traditional button down style). This shirt is great for date night with high waisted pants, a skirt or even cut off shorts. The skirt is ideal to pair with a crop top, fun button down like this one or even a body suit – honestly I am feeling club vibes (wouldn’t Paris totally wear this to Le Deux? haha I think so)
My heels are my new favorites for summer from AMI Clubwear. How cute is this teal color to add a Pop Of Color to any look?! They retail for under $20 here.
This bag is great for everyday errands or heading to dinner etc from GiGi New York! The fun tassel adds a little flare to it + the zip pockets and size make it ideal to fit all of your much needed essentials. I love this style of bag for everyday wear.
Winter in LA is definitely not nearly as bad as winter in NYC. While in NYC the snow falling looks like something out of a movie, the freezing temps are not something I am about haha That’s why being back in LA makes me one happy gal. One thing I do miss about NYC however is being able to appropriately dress in winter clothes without looking like a looney toon in LA :p
I don’t know about you, but the more pops of color I can add to any look the better! I can’t get enough of my favorite hue – cobalt blue. From cobalt blue pumps, to a cobalt blue bag to this cobalt blue coat…I may or may not have a slight obsession with this bold color?
In LA, I never get to wear heavy winter coats or cozy plaid scarves…which in a way is good for me since I am 24 going on 60 with how quickly I get overheated haha but I do miss it. I love being matchy matchy! Since cobalt blue is such a bold color, I usually pair blue with white to keep things simple and not too over the top.
What’s great about these bold blue pieces + white ones is that separately they can all be mixed and matched to create multiple looks!
Cobalt blue accessories + shoes are great for work or play. I love wearing them to the office to add ‘Pops Of Color‘ to my everyday look and bring some life back into the work place 😉 Because hey why not right?
Happy Tuesday everyone! After a long holiday weekend (which was much needed in my opinion :p), I am happy to be back to the normal grind + hustle! I have been pretty swamped focusing on building up my social consulting business + designing a new site for it (stay tuned…I am perfecting the design hehe), being a boss lady ain’t easy…let me tell ya haha However, one of my highlights of the long Labor Day Weekend (other than the amazing sales) was being able to meet up with some of my blogger friends – I have been out of commission for a little bit since I’ve been drowning in work + the blog, but heading to a comedy show + some brunch was the perfect way to catch up with some of my favorite gals!
Now we all know the saying goes ‘No White After Labor Day‘. Well I made it pretty obvious last week that I fully intend on wearing white wayyyy after Labor Day…especially white skinny jeans! I linked to some of my favorite pairs HERE (all affordable btw :p)!
This outfit is one of those moments that I feel white jeans simply dress a look up making it perfect for work or play. I would totally wear this look to the office — comfy jeans, a chic cold shoulder top (this one is from Make Me Chic + is under $20!!) and a bag + shoes sure to make a statement…what’s better than that?!
