Things are starting to brighten up in the world! It’s PRIDE month, it’s summertime, lockdown orders are lifting, restaurants, stores etc are beginning to re-open + I’m beginning to feel a sense of normalcy again (hallelujah!) Last week was a heavy week, not going to lie. America is undergoing a lot of changes + growing pains hopefully leading to a stronger nation + unified people. Because last week was pretty emotional for us all my fiance + I decided to venture out for a little road trip + headed to Santa Barbara where we found this gorgeous photo moment!
I thought this spot was so cute to shoot this new Lovers + Friends dress I got from REVOLVE because who doesn’t love a rainbow. I also love this spot because this beautiful piece of artwork is made up of various colors, like our country. It takes different colors coming together to make up a beautiful rainbow, something we should always remember, when we come together beautiful things can form.
I paired this dress with my new RAYE wedges that are sure to become a summer staple for me because they match with every type of look + are super comfortable!
I also felt this look was the perfect time to bring out my new Louis Vuitton Escale Toiletry Pouch that sold out within days. Tie Dye is such a trend this season so I am loving this print from Louis Vuitton…how can you not!
Embracing color is something you should always do, especially this season…be BOLD, be YOU!
Fall is just around the corner + while I love stocking up on my fall favorites, I also love styling my summer picks well into fall. My current obsessions? A little leopard paired with a cropped sweater like I did here! While I wore this Pink Blush leopard skirt during the summer with camisoles or bodysuits, it is perfect to transition to fall with a chic sweater like I did here.
These pieces are great to style a variety of ways + are total fall must-haves (plus you can style them for warmer weather as well as cooler weather)
Now for the pretty little details…I have been lusting after these Hermes sandals for months now + I finally took the plunge and got them. So happy I did! They are beyond comfy, match with everything + will never go out of style.
The best part of this ensemble? The bag! I have been eyeing up this Louis Vuitton backpack for a while now so when I saw it on Bag, Borrow or Steal, I knew I had to have it! What I love about this bag is how the size is equivalent to a normal handbag but has the chic, edgy style of a backpack! Bag, Borrow or Steal gives you two options…you can BUY (they are one of my top spots to find designer bags for less that are authenticated by their team of experts + are typically in AMAZING condition) OR you can BORROW.
So here’s the scoop on how to BORROW. You just search their BORROW tab, find your dream bag whether it be for a shoot, a special occasion or just because…follow the instructions and then you can borrow 1 bag a month for a certain rate – giving you the luxury handbag experience for less with no commitment of keeping the bag you are styling (perfect for the gal that is always testing out new trends + changing up their style)!
Does this dress make me look like a flamingo? hehe :p ICYMI the latest Instagram pose that all the gals are doing is a little something called the ‘Flamingo‘ (no joke it’s a real pose see HERE hehe). Anyways between rocking this stylish flamingo print dress to rockin’ this flamingo pose, I am never wanting summer to end. Honestly this IG pose craze is pretty great since it helps make you look sleek + tall…just like a flamingo haha get it? 😉
Since summer is coming to an end I wanted to get my last licks of summer in by sharing my flamingo look. This cute dress instantly makes me want to head on vacation (in fact we are planning our next getaway now…we are thinking Hawaii! Watchya think?) This dress is actually on MEGA sale from Red Dress Boutique (one of my major favorites as you may know by now haha I do hauls of their great styles basically weekly honestly) so I highly encourage you to shop it + snag it for 50% off!
Ever have one of those really amazing hair days + just feel on top of the world? This shoot day was definitely one of them! Ever since I began my Jenny Craig journey a year ago, my confidence has been through the roof and then a good hair or makeup day is an added bonus. It is crazy to think this time last year I was 60 pounds heavier and look at me now hehe :p
For spring I have some favorites I will be wearing all season long and this yellow sweater, white skirt, white booties + bag are pretty much a major part of them! As you all know, I love a major POP of color so I began stocking up on bright neon + pastel sweaters for spring + summer, like the one I am wearing here. This one is lightweight, perfect for layering + it is great to wear over a bralette or swimsuit for upcoming festival season!
Crazy to think Easter is just a few weeks away + that means tons of floral moments, pastel pieces + a jolly attitude! One of my go to dresses for the occasion is this green floral wrap dress from Bobeau.
I love a classic wrap dress not just because of the amazing fit but because it is such a classic style that is chic + dressy for any occasion, especially holidays + family gatherings. When it comes to get togethers with family I like to dress stylish but also a bit more conservative so this Bobeau dress is going to be my go to for hiding Easter eggs + enjoying a yummy feast!
Bobeau truly has the cutest styles. I love that they are comfy + cute and also come at an affordable price point available at a bunch of retailers including my forever favorite, Nordstrom.
I styled this dress with classic white pointed toe pumps paired with one of my spring into summer staples, the white ark bag. I am linking to some of my favorites below which I highly recommend investing in.
These pieces are ones you can style various ways throughout the spring into summer + they are classics that will be in style for years to come.
