Happy Monday Ya’ll!! I decided to put on a slight southern accent this morning apparently haha I have been in a silly mood lately don’t ask haha :p Time to kick off another busy week with Pops Of Color, good vibes + hopefully some warmer weather. Although LA is usually warm, this past week it has been really chilly…making me not a happy camper ugh. Since spring is in full swing I decided to mix some of my spring into summer pieces with some of my winter essentials (being jeans instead of shorts of course).
Last spring pom pom sandals were the biggest hit + apparently they are here to stay…something I am VERY happy about! I love sandals period because any excuse I have to show off a good pedicure is fine by me, but to add some cute flair in the form of colorful pom poms and tassels makes them even better!
Clearly I am really happy about the week ahead haha Pictures can be deceiving…I am really so sleepy and must admit I slept in till 2 in the afternoon yesterday :p oops #SorryNotSorry
One of my favorite brands of sunnies is Le Specs. I love their edgy designs at an affordable price point, these Noir style ones have been a staple of mine ever since I got them. I am also linking below to some pom pom sandals I am crushing on + then my Louis Vuitton Speedy 30 Bag.
Score these and you will be ready for summer in no time!!
Living in LA, it is practically mandatory to do a photo shoot in front of the ever so famous ‘Pink Wall‘ on Melrose (it’s on the side of the Paul Smith store). The morning I shot there, there were tons of bloggers there (even one gal shooting a music video haha). I naturally loved the backdrop because as you all know, I L O V E a good pop of color 😉 I kept my outfit pretty simple since I had such a colorful setting and a bright cobalt blue bag (seriously obsessed with this bag — I wear it all the time). My chiffon camisole is on sale now at Kohls and it is the perfect piece to layer under a blazer, sweater, cardigan or denim jacket.
I also love a chic blazer — especially this white one. Everyone wears black blazers, but a white one adds a little extra something to any look. As for my jeans, simple skinny jeans, cuffed at the bottom — I love showing a little ankle (plus I am short haha so these fit me great — short gals rejoice).
My shoes are from Carolinna Espinosa and are no longer available, but I linked to a similar style here. And my satchel is from Kenneth Cole (also no longer available — similar here).
Oh yea…my signature Ray Bans had to make an appearance duh :p
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.
