Happy Tuesday ♥ So it may be a H E A T wave in LA LA Land (like seriously it is pretty much over 100 degrees everyday…ugh) but that doesn’t mean I can’t share this little look I shot back in the spring (you know before LA turned into a hot inferno haha). I continued my long lost love affair with Wild Blue Denim by styling their tunic with my favorite distressed skinny jeans. Honestly guys, their jeans fit like a glove. I am all about the jegging like material that hugs my curves + feels beyond comfortable…these jeans are always a win/win!
Keep scrollin’ to see a few more reasons as to why I L O V E this look…
This look is simply cute + comfy. It’s great for work or play and honestly the top hides any and everything (currently I am styling it with shorts to beat the heat).
What is special about this outfit is I am sporting the first ever designer bag I bought when I was 14…a DIOR!
I had saved up all of my money from scooping popcorn at the local movie theater to buy this baby right before I began freshman year of high school. While most girls were rocking Coach, I opted for Dior. I guess you can say my mama raised me with some expensive taste hehe 😉
Happy Friday! I am excited for another great weekend ahead! I will be getting some good R+R plus I am hosting a fun fashion event at Marmi Shoes in El Segundo! If you are in the area you should totally pop by this Saturday from 4:30-6! Details at the bottom of this post!
Anyways, one thing I love about the weekends is catching up on the rest and ‘me‘ time I so desperately crave during the week. This is my casual gear…and here is my new favorite tea (in case you weren’t aware, I am a total tea lover)! Since moving to LA I have been slacking on the whole health + fitness game and consequently I gained a few pounds and need to get back to feeling good and fit again…so doing the 14 day Your Tea ‘Tiny Tea Tox’ was a great way to kick start a new healthy life style!The tea tastes amazing + it makes you feel full — pretty much amazing<3 You can drink it hot or cold (I drink it iced because I just can’t dig hot drinks for some reason haha) and you simply drink it 30 minutes before breakfast, 30 min before lunch + 30 min before dinner (3 times a day).
After trying it for the 14 day period I felt great and started shedding some water weight (woohoo!)Of course with having tea everyday, I needed some cute mugs to drink from so here are a few of my current favorites! Clearly ‘I Woke Up Like This‘ is my fav :p
So here is the info on the event I will be hosting tomorrow! If you are in the LA / Cali area stop by and say Hi!
The toughest thing after a nice relaxing weekend is heading back to the normal ‘rise + grind’ on a Monday. No matter how long you are working for, the struggle never gets easier and it is in fact ‘real‘ 😉 I spent this past weekend in Palm Springs (if you follow me on SnapChat you got to see my random shenanigans…and if you don’t follow me well now you should duh! — this way you don’t miss out next time hehe – MissyOnMadison). After relaxing by the pool in the middle of a 90 degree desert it kind of made me never want to leave (can you blame me?)…although I would have loved to stay forever…I had to come back to reality…LA.
So I may have titled this post ‘Black Florals‘, but after scrolling through all of the shots of me in this post I may as well name it ‘hair grab‘ since that seems to have become one of my ‘go-to’ poses while shooting new looks :p I am not quite sure how I always end up posing the same way (especially when whoever is shooting tells me to act ‘natural‘…my version of natural is being posed I suppose haha) but as I keep going through my iPhoto library I tend to see a ton of ‘hair grabbing / flipping’ shots #LongHairDontCare!
The past few weeks have been a little hectic for me which has in turn given me less time to blog, but rest assured once I am settled in to my new apartment with my little work area (complete with an instagramworthy set up of course :p) I will be back on track and writing tons more content (hopefully…fingers crossed haha)
