Perfectly Imperfect…that’s me! I have been stressed beyond belief the past couple of weeks between transitioning to a new apartment and town, to deciding to expand my career goals to find my ‘perfect’ fit, to exploring all LA has to offer by playing tour guide to my friend visiting from NY, my schedule has been insane and I am happy to finally have a second to relax and just breathe. Sometimes it’s hard when you are constantly moving to just take a moment to collect your thoughts and focus…I was in desperate need of a moment to myself and am so thrilled to finally have it haha After having a ‘mini breakdown’ with my friend on the way to see James Cordon (which we were later turned away from because they were ‘at capacity’ ugh so annoying) she stressed an important point to me…everyone gets overwhelmed, everyone needs to freak out, cry, break down + breathe for a second…I try so hard to keep everything together and looking pristine from the outside because who wants to seem weak and vulnerable right? My fear of looking like a failure in turn is driving my nuts…yup after a heart to heart with my LI sister from another mister (shout out to my little Santa — yup her name is Santa like Santa Claus…she’s just as jolly too haha :p) it hit me that it’s ok to ask for help, it’s ok to freak out and everyone needs a good cry ♥ Now that I let it all out, it’s back to get myself back on track…sometimes venting and letting out what’s bugging you helps…or at least it’s been a huge help to me. I need to start a new cooking + fitness routine (I was totally neglecting that the past couple of months since I was beyond swamped at work). I actually am slowly but surely learning how to be domestic in my new apartment and am beyond thrilled to have my peaceful, humble abode that is all mine♥ Living alone is a dream (although my friend has been staying with me the past 2 weeks haha helping me settle in). I love having my own space + the ability to have peace and quiet to focus on my career goals and my blog which I have been slacking on lately, not gunna even try to lie :p
My outfit is perfectly imperfect…much like me at the moment. It’s simple, casual + is a mix of trends. I LOVE plaid year round, but especially for summer even though it occasionally comes off looking like a picnic table cloth haha! I paired it with simple white shorts…my go-to pick for summer (pretty much an essential for every gal TBH).
Since I am always on the go, I tend to love larger bags and this Vera Bradley cross body satchel is great for that! It can be worn as a shoulder bag or as a satchel and has room for my Macbook Air, makeup, snacks (even a back up pair of shoes)!
My booties are from Go Jane and while this style is no longer available, I found a similar style from them (here) that hits the summer booties trend right on the head!
Take me to Turks…Imagine! Getting up and heading to Turks and Caicos…saying adios at the office and just getting away? Oh what a dream…for now, wearing Turquoise, dreaming of a tropical island will have to suffice :p Fun fact…I shot this colorful look (featuring my new All For Color tank) on my new street in Burbank! Perks of moving out of WeHo? Amazing places to shoot and I don’t have to worry about parking or getting a ticket! YASSS♥
With summer quickly approaching, adding more color to your wardrobe is essential (especially for me :p), I always love a Pop Of Color and luckily ‘All For Color‘ helps me get my color fix year round! I love their tops, sweaters, dresses, swimsuits + beyond…they are awesome to add color to any look♥
Happy Monday! Time for another hectic work week (ugh). Between moving, taking on even more responsibilities at work + trying to keep up with my blog, my head has been S P I N N I N G (if only that translated to my legs so I can physically be doing a Soul Cycle class as I am mentally haha :p). For the first time ever, I am actually having a hard time balancing personal + work life. It’s tough trying to excel at work while also kicking a*s at everything else (insert monkey covering it’s eyes emoji haha), I need a break…a getaway…something♥ Anyways, enough of me b*tching about my current work load haha…off to something a bit more enjoyable to discuss…this outfit!
My new sunnies (yes I am actually switching it up #ProudMoment) are from Nectar Sunglasses. They are cute, affordable + I never have to worry about if god forbid I loose them because at $20 I can always buy another pair if need be 😉 I am also loving this gold lariat necklace…perfect to wear to work, or with a cute date night outfit etc.
So this dress is a little risque…making it perfect for date night or girls night 😉 This white low cut dress reminds me of something J.Lo would wear to the Grammy’s (hey if Jenny from the Block would rock it, so can I, right?)! It’s from AMI Clubwear and retails for under $20…perfect for a Bachelorette party, white party or any kind of party for that matter haha!
I layered a chic moto jacket over it so the dress wasn’t ‘too revealing‘…I mean it’s still revealing but you catch my drift :p
My lace up heels are from De Blossom Collection and I LOVE them♥ They are super comfortable in addition to sexy…the ideal shoe to add some flavor to any look! (Nothing makes me happier than comfort + style being combined into one awesome pair of heels)!
