I don’t know about you, but I have a serious case of the Mondays! After clearing out a full inbox, I am finally feeling a little relieved. Honestly, nothing stresses me out more than an inbox filled with emails. If I see a notification, I must check it…my BF definitely thinks I am a nut but hey…I don’t ever want to leave an e-mail unanswered hehe :p
My boo + I laid low this past weekend since this weekend we are heading to VEGAS! I am super excited to celebrate my boo’s bday in Sin City. While we aren’t big gamblers by any means (we both would rather gamble with our money in the stock market than at the Blackjack table haha :p) we are super excited to explore, relax + live it up! I surprised him with a fun car tour featuring one of his favorite car guys he likes to watch so I am ready to rev up + see what bad ass cars we will get to check out over the weekend!
What I love about fall is how easy it is to transition your favorite summer pieces for cooler weather. This pink pleated midi skirt was on repeat for me this summer – styled with a crop top or body suit, so I styled it for fall with a chambray button down blouse that I tied for a feminine look!
I love this look for fall since it is fun, flirty + great for hanging with friends or date night. I also plan on styling this midi skirt with a chunky sweat for winter with ankle boots!
I love being a little ‘matchy matchy‘ so a pink skirt plus pink heels = perfection!
I feel like every gal needs a cute pair of pink heels to dress up any look. Pair them with jeans, dresses, skirts + even more…they are bound to make a statement.
My bag was a graduation gift to myself when I graduated high school – the Louis Vuitton Speedy. This bag is an oldie but still a goodie.
Another busy week is in full swing – naturally I am bracing myself by relaxing and watching Vanderpump Rules…my secret (well now not so secret) addiction :p Sometimes when things get hectic, it’s important to take a deep breath, take a moment + take care of yourself (one of my goals / things I have learned since turning 25 last month…#HelloMarch)! Anyways…one of the things that always makes me happy is sharing some new outfits with you all and today’s look is no exception.
I headed to shoot this look at the ever so famous ‘Pink Wall‘ (which has become a well known phrase across the country BTW…I use the term ‘pink wall’ when referring to an insta-worthy spot for marketing initiatives haha). Usually there is a line and a wait to shoot in front of this famous wall on Melrose (in fact…there are now signs + security trying to stop people from shooting in front of it period during the day).
I decided to shoot a little chambray number that is perfect for winter into spring in LA!
These tan peep toe booties are a staple for spring (that will also last ya till the fall). They are comfortable because of the chunky heel and they match with absolutely everything!! That’s why I love neutral colors.
And I am on the move! Today I am off to Florida and I couldn’t be more excited! A few months ago Nordstrom + Live Nation had a huge sweepstakes to promote the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale (aka my favorite sale of the year) + who would have thunk it…I W O N 🙂
So what did I win you may ask? Two tickets for me and a guest to any Live Nation show in the country + a weekend getaway to see it — So, I decided why not go somewhere fun! Universal Orlando! My dad is flying and meeting me in Orlando so we can head to Universal Studios (I haven’t been since I was a child :p) + we are going to see Amy Schumer + Aziz Ansari in Tampa!
Another fun thing I wanted to share in today’s post? (Besides this casual OOTD)…Since this weekend is going to be the first time I am seeing my dad since our road trip here from NY, I wanted to finally share some of the photos from the journey!
I seriously can’t wait to see my dad! I am a total daddy’s girl and after dropping him at LAX once we arrived in LA I cried…for a while (hey maybe I am slightly overly emotional but this is my first time on my own). I am super excited about seeing him and even more excited about creating some new memories — I mean we are going to Universal and I need to see the Minions (fun fact…I am o b s e s s e d with those little guys haha!)
Happy Monday Ya’ll! Sorry if I haven’t been writing as much the past two weeks but between my trip to LA a week ago and a newrevelation that just came about, I have been overwhelmed, swamped and just needed a moment to breathe (you know you have totally had those kind of weeks :p).
Now that I got that out of the way, I wanted to pre-warn ya that today’s outfit post is far from typical. I won’t just be talking about what I am wearing because honestly the news I have to share is WAY more exciting…
I am going to be completely honest…I never was one for the whole ‘preppy‘ look. I attempted the whole Lacoste phase when I was middle school and wasn’t sure i could truly pull off a polo, but when I saw gals rocking a chambray button down under a sweater I said to myself ‘Let’s give it a shot‘ and I am kinda glad I did 😉
Because the whole denim and sweater look wasn’t preppy enough, I had to wear white jeans (yes I LOVE white jeans year round cc: ‘Feels Like Winter‘), add black patent leather flats and of course…a dash of neon (my satchel is available in my Poshmark closet here). Let’s break it down…this black + white striped sweater has become a favorite of mine (stay tuned to see how else I style it). It’s warm, cozy and black and white stripes are just begging to be paired with white jeans…right? 😉
I’m thinking I have to bring these white jeans with me to Florida in a few days and maybe this chambray button down too (ugh I am creating outfits in my head as I am typing #BloggerProblems)
