I didn’t think it would be possible to combine some of my summer favorites into fall but…I did it. I love wearing pastel hues year round (dark colors aren’t really my thing…they have their time and place don’t get me wrong but right now…I am loving some lighter colors to embrace the fall season so here we are! I am loving this dress from Red Dress boutique and ladies you must get it! It comes in a variety of colors and it fits pretty true to size – plus you can style it a variety of ways season to season.
I styled this dress with a white Gucci belt. I searched high + low for this beauty and finally scored it from MyTheresa! I discovered MyTheresa and instantly fell in love because there is FREE shipping and NO TAX since they are based in UK.
I also tied the look together with the trendy hairband of the moment…pearl ones! I stocked up on these ones from Amazon + they are great to style with any look so I bought them in every color to mix and match.
I am OBSESSED with this floral Gucci bag. I scored it on major discount and have been wearing it ever since. It’s a great size and with the pop of floral it makes it a great bag to make a statement with whatever look you are wearing. In terms of an investment, this bag is definitely worth it since it is sturdy and amazing quality!
What a week it’s been! I am currently recouping from a busy weekend + week as I am cuddled up on the couch down Nyquil trying to get over being sick from all the traveling. This sparkly look was shot over the weekend when I was in Vegas speaking at The Influencer Lab blogger conference where I was alongside other amazing boss babes sharing all about my blogging journey, career path + more. It was a surreal feeling. I sat there wanting to cry tears of joy as I looked out into the audience where my team (yes my team haha nuts right?!) was sitting and my boyfriend was standing in the back snapping pictures as I was talking away about what got me to that exact moment of speaking about my life to these aspiring influencers, marketers + more.
It was a moment I have forever dreamed of. I love sharing about how I got to where I am with others + to be able to inspire other entrepreneurs in the making makes me feel like a mini Mark Cuban (Shark Tank is my obsession hehe :p).
It’s been 7 years since I started my blog and 8 years since I began working in the digital marketing space…years later being able to share my journey with others was an amazing feeling + made me feel all sorts of sparkle from the inside out.
That brings me to the stand out look I rocked in Vegas…because you know when in Vegas you better bring on the gltiz + glam hehe 🙂
I was lusting after this dress ever since it first popped up on my IG feed a few weeks ago + while it’s a bit pricey I figured it’s Vegas, it’s my first speaking engagement, I may as well go big (otherwise go home right haha) so I invested + bought this Retrofete Gabrielle Sequin Wrap Dress. I felt like a sparkly disco ball + honestly loved it, life is definitely too short to play it safe so live it up + make a statement.
I paired this dress with sparkly pumps from Manolo Blahnik because clearly the dress wasn’t enough sparkle hehe :p I built this outfit from the shoes up. I scored these beauties on sale from Saks Off Fifth (ICYMI my post on finding designer deals for less highlights how I find great buys like these Manolos) and when I bought them months ago I knew they would be perfect for this occasion. When you feel like you look good, your confidence just exudes.
As for my bag, this was definitely a last minute buy haha While my dad was in town visiting last week we headed out the the Palm Desert Premium Outlets + I went into store after store looking at various pieces and each time I walked out of every store not loving anything…my dad even made a comment saying ‘wow I don’t think I have ever seen you come out of so many stores without buying a single thing‘. Well he must have jinxed me because then I walked into Valentino, saw this bag + died and went to heaven…BAM bag found + I had the biggest smile on the rest of the day.
It’s my first Valentino bag + it definitely doesn’t disappoint. I love the hot pink color, the convenient size + the versatile way to wear it either as a crossbody bag, shoulder bag to top handle bag…the options of how to wear it make it the best go-to bag. It was one of those bags that you see it + you just know it was meant for you 😉 Like love at first sight, bag edition haha
Besides loving my outfit, one of the best parts of this past weekend was just the feeling I had that I made it. I envisioned speaking on a panel forever + while it was a small accomplishment to some, to me it was huge + it is what gives me the drive to continue to strive for more + never settle. My new slogan…Dream It, Believe It, Achieve It ♥
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.
I don’t know about you, but I have always been one for treats over tricks hehe 😉 My idea of the perfect treat? A new outfit of course! One of my favorite treats is receiving packages from Tobi.com. They have everything I am looking for no matter what the occasion…including this tiered skater dress!
I am not one to dress up for Halloween but maybe I will go as a blogger this year haha (imagine) 😉 Whether you are trick or treating or heading to a party tonight, a LBD (especially a skater dress) is always a good idea. Simply style it with some platform heeled sandals like these beauties from Seven Dials and you are ready to go!
I love the flared sleeves on this dress + the deep v style. It is great to wear on date night or for a night out with the gals.
The cotton material is super comfy and what I love most about Tobi is that they always have the best sales, which for a girl who loves a bargain, is always a win.
Plus, online shopping to me is always a ‘treat‘ because when the order arrives at your doorstep it feels like a present haha even though you ordered it…it still is a exciting surprise when it arrives!
