It wouldn’t be St. Patrick’s Day without a little green! I actually got to venture out last weekend and shoot at some new spots…this one being Venice! I’ve heard plenty of mixed things about Venice, but after exploring and finding the cutest shops, restaurants (and plenty of colorful backdrops)…I got sold on it 😉 Safe to say plenty of more shoots will be happening there haha :p But…back to St. Patty’s Day…green it is!
This look is super simple yet chic. I always love incorporating color into any look I wear, so this All For Color kimono was the perfect piece to build my look around.
Red…White + a little F R I N G E! Those are the vibes I am feeling for the upcoming Labor Day Weekend! Other than all of the great sales (which I will be sharing my favorites from of course – stay tuned :p), I love how Labor Day weekend is the last time to really stand out in your summer time favorites (although, knowing me I will still be wearing my summer favs well into fall haha). I figured prepping for the weekend is the perfect time to show my patriotic side once again! I am kinda in an ‘I Love America‘ state of mind after seeing Kid Rock over the weekend + his amazing tribute to working class America…all of the soldiers, marines and more who fought + continue to fight each and everyday to make sure we are ‘Born Free‘! ICYMI, I am a HUGE Kid Rock fan and was in love at his concert Saturday night…I was supposed to see him 4th of July weekend back in NY (before I knew I was moving) but then I moved here to LA a month before the concert + missed going 🙁 So seeing him Saturday literally made my summer <3Anyways…on a side note, I should probably get to breaking down this amazing outfit which is fully stocked on color + feminine details…just what I like! My blue pleated high low skirt is from LoveShoppingMiami.com whose website makes me instantly happy because it is filled with fun colors, prints + styles fit for any season! I paired it with a simple white crop top because I mean come on, doesn’t the skirt just speak for itself?
My fav part of this outfit is of course are these red fringe heels from AMI Clubwear…they are instantly becoming my go-to shoe for a night out because the fun fringe detail and the red hue can really spice up any look 😉 I guess you can say they are red hot haha!
Accessories I kept simple as well and went for a metallic theme…got to love a little glitz. I decided to give this silver Michael Kors watch a little love since I haven’t worn it in such a long time along with this metallic silver clutch from Carolinna Espinosa (similar styles here + here).
And it wouldn’t be a summer outfit without my mirrored Ray Ban sunnies right? hehe I’ve seriously worn these All Summer Long (like my Kid Rock reference sprinkled in there haha)
Happy Monday! I am so ready to start a fresh new week after an exhausting weekend of apartment hunting in LA. Luckily after searching high and low I have exciting news to report…I found my dream apartment!! The building and it’s ameneties are to die for and the apartment itself is pure bliss…I can’t wait to move in and start the decorating progress (which I will chronicle here on the blog of course). If you told me a year ago I would start pinning away interior design inspo and then actually use some of that inspiration to help decorate my very own apartment in Los Angeles I wouldn’t believe you…well here it is…it’s happening! Crazy I know…
Happy Thursday Lovers! I titled this post ‘Snow Flake’ because the combination of the baby blue cable knit sweater, ivory tulle skirt and metallic accessories made me instantly think of snow flake holiday decoration that is hanging in one of the windows of my house at the moment. Snow flakes, like this outfit are simple yet elegant, they glimmer at night or during the day and are always bound to make you smile 🙂 I love wearing tulle skirts because they make me feel like that little girl that wants to be a princess (hell maybe that’s still me…oops). They are always an extra special piece to wear for any occasion…especially the holiday season. At times wearing a tulle skirt can be seen as ‘too much’ but styled the right way…totally do-able!I paired this LC Lauren Conrad tulle skirt with a cable knit sweater from Old Navy. I love the touch of baby blue especially because it can even be worn well into spring when the weather is still a tad cool in the early months. While I love this one from Old Navy, I found similar ones here + here (both for under $50!).Now time to break down my metallic accessories…because every snow flake wants to shine right? 😉 My silver pumps are from Christian Siriano for Payless (now on my Poshmark here) and are no longer available but I found a similar pair from DV By Dolce Vita on sale at Macy’s here!Next up? This metallic silver zip clutch is perfect for the Holiday season because it can be worn with absolutely EVERYTHING! Metallic is always statement making and dresses up any look. This clutch is from Carolinna Espinosa (on my Poshmark here / similar Steve Madden clutch here) and is no longer available but I found a similar one from Clare V. at Neiman Marcus here.And once again…had to rock my favorite piece of candy…arm candy I mean from Caravelle NY…the best piece to match with any Holiday ensemble…On a side note, I’d like to share a little personal update from the world of Missy. My little buddy Charlie just came home last night from having emergency eye surgery at the animal hospital. I don’t know about you, but my feeling is that Charlie isn’t just our family dog, he is truly a member of our family and to go through this little hiccup during the holiday season has been stressful on all of us. So with the merriest time of year upon us, always remember to be thankful, grateful and appreciative of what you have…whether it be family, friends, health or even your pet! | Click To Shop This Look |
Happy Wednesday Loves! This look features two of my favorite fall trends…cobalt blue and metallic…what more can a fashionista ask for? The lovely team at ShopMieux sent me these Zara metallic blue platform heels which are super comfortable and the perfect night out shoe (similar from ASOS here). I figured why stop the metallic moment at my footwear…why not add a metallic bag as well like my silver clutch from Carolinna Espinosa (similar from ShopBop here…use code FRIENDS25 for 25% off your purchase!). Now that we broke the metallics down…let’s get to the rest of this Humpday ensemble 😉 My cobalt blue blouse is from LC By Lauren Conrad AND you can score it now from my closet on Poshmark for a fraction of the cost! Like I mentioned earlier, from the bag to the shoes…I am loving metallic for fall…can you blame me? Metallic accessories, in my opinion really pull the look together…they add a little sparkle and shine (as if the sleeves on this top didn’t have enough of it..) and they can match with almost anything! My black scuba skirt is from Target, but I found a similar one available now from Nordstrom here. And to stay within the blue hues…mirrored aviators, my go to accessory! A little fun fact…while shooting this look at my local Tanger Outlets (what can I say why not shop & shoot at the same time haha!) a group of guys walked by and screamed out ‘Looking Good’ as I’m sitting there pretending to be a model…my brother aka my photographer just shook his head in embarrassment…sibling love at it’s finest 🙂Shop My Look<3
