Happy Thursday Babes! I have been super busy lately between getting everything ready for my upcoming trip to London + working on an exciting top secret project (don’t worry, I will reveal it soon hehe) my blog time has been slacking but I am getting back at it! I can’t believe summer is coming to a close – living in LA it makes it hard to realize a transition in seasons sometimes since the weather doesn’t change like good ‘ole NYC…what can I say, sometimes I miss the big apple! Luckily, today’s post reminds me a little of NYC because I am rocking a chic printed wrap dress from Leota New York! For some reason a classic wrap dress + pointed toe pumps is so ‘New York‘ to me. Maybe it reminds me of my corporate office days + being in the epicenter of the fashion world but I personally will always love playing dress up no matter what the occasion.
This Leota New York dress is beyond comfy + it is beyond flattering on various body types. It is fun, flirty yet professional + chic. Whether you are heading to the boardroom or a nice dinner, this dress paired with the perfect bag + heels is a total ‘must-have‘!
What I love about wrap dresses is how flattering they are. I have been up and down with my weight lately so the fact that it is tight on top and flows out makes it the perfect dress to ‘hide’ anything you may not want to accentuate 😉
The red in the dress was picked up with my red satchel from Miss Locker Bags (it retails for under $100 on Amazon). This bag I wore all over NYC as it has just the right amount of room to fit all of my essentials from my keys, to lipstick, to sunnies + more.
Classic white pumps are always a no brainer. I mean what is more chic than this?
Happy Friday! I wish I was more upbeat about the weekend but I am sitting home sick (ugh). I got the flu shot the other day and within 24 hours I am sick…this happens without fail every year…when will they come up with a shot that doesn’t make me sick after getting it jeez :p And I am sure all the traveling and airport waiting areas didn’t help either…On a brighter note, sick days = Law and Order SVU + Chicken Noodle Soup…I guess things can be worse right? (plus I am finally catching up on blogging which I feel like I’ve been slacking on the past two weeks — ever get that feeling? Where everything is happening all at once and you just need a little break?) 🙂This outfit is perfect to wear to work this fall and is a little flashback from my NYC days! It was shot just days before I got the news that I would be moving to LA (crazy to think I have been here since June now) and totally forgot about it :p Shabby Apple always has chic pieces that are great for work or play but this midi skirt is perfect office attire if you ask me — not too much leg…just the right amount 😉
I paired the midi skirt with this chambray button down shirt for a little retro vibe…I feel like a button down shirt tied like this is so cute (and just a tad sexy) reminds me of a pin-up girl what can I say. And of course these white pumps made a transition into fall because why not 😛
It wouldn’t be a ‘Missy’esq outfit without a bright red bag and this one did just the trick! And my signature black sunnies are a ‘must’ for the fall season. Plus I needed something to brighten my mood after this long exhausting week!
After being in Cali for a little over 2 months now, I have officially found one of my favorite spots…Malibu 😉 Naturally I would have champagne wishes + caviar dreams about one of the most expensive areas of Cali haha So while I may not be able to afford living there just yet (trust me, the second I do…Madison Malibu will be finding me my dream home :p I hope you guys are as obsessed with MDLA as I am because I new season is just around the corner and my boo thang Madison is making an appearance a few times throughout the season!) Anyways I digress…I popped over to Malibu with Ali to shoot this head to toe affordable look where each piece retails for $80 or under! Ummm AMAZING right?
I can’t believe it is 4th Of July weekend already! I am happily writing this post by the pool at my apartment building since I have the day off today (so thrilling!) and this is actually a little bit of a flashback to LI while also sharing some July 4th style! I realized as I was editing these photos that A) These were shot in March (guess I was feeling patriotic vibes early haha) + B) All of these photos had what appears to be a blue filter over them…I am thinking my brother was having some mechanical difficulties with the camera that day but nonetheless they came out pretty sweet!
“In New York you are always looking for a job, a boyfriend or an apartment” said the ever so fabulous Carrie Bradshaw. Now while I would like to think I have a little ‘Carrie’ in me, that quote from SATC is a little different for me…replace ‘job‘ with a new pair of shoes + replace ‘apartment‘ with a great place to shoot an outfit post 😉 (we can keep the search for a boyfriend for now haha). So when I got this black tulle skirt from Bliss Tulle in the mail, I knew it was meant to be shot at one of Carrie’s favorite spots…the New York Public Library! Any opportunity I get to channel SJP I do it!
Today’s post isn’t just about my love for Carrie Bradshaw, I am sharing a great NEW giveaway with you all to get you the perfect ‘Pop Of Color’ for spring 😉 You can Enter To Win the red satchel I am wearing! Perfect way to prep for spring weather huh? <3
