Summer Time Fine♥ With June just days away, I decided it was about time to prep for summer + get a new ‘do’! I have been so swamped with work, moving + the blog that I realized I haven’t actually pampered myself or gotten my hair done in about a year (literally since I moved here last June from NY) :p Cray Cray! Luckily I finally got the chance to get a little ‘refresh’ during Ulta Beauty’s Gorgeous Hair Event! Some new highlights, a fresh cut + a new Missy!
I headed to the Ulta Beauty right near my new apartment in Burbank to get a full day of rest, relaxation + a fresh new look! Nothing screams summer like some fresh new color! I have never been one to over-process my hair, so subtle baby highlights is what my stylist and I discussed…the perfect fit for me! They are low maintenance, don’t need a lot of upkeep + even when they grow out they look like my hair is naturally sun-kissed! Just what summer calls for! I also got some subtle layers to assist with holding curls (I love curling my hair when I have the time, but it is sometimes challenging when it comes to holding a curl…these new layers help with adding some texture to my hair to make long lasting curls possible)♥
The only way to show off a fresh summer do is with a bright new outfit! Let’s break it down — Nothing makes me happier than neon…and a cute pair of heels!
My neon pink dress was actually a clearance find at Forever 21 but I found similar options below:
I layered a white boyfriend blazer over it so it can be styled for work or play!
Peace out LA! I am off to Palm Springs for the weekend! I am super excited to get away from LA for a little girls trip and I figured what better way to prep than with a little packing guide! I am super excited for colorful swimwear, fun prints and the perfecting my tan with some new skincare + beauty gear! One of my current obsessions for getting that perfect glow is Vita Liberata! After attending a fun rooftop event at Sky Bar with their luxury tanning essentials to get that sun-kissed look, I became completely in love. Foaming mousse, powdered bronzers + more help any gal achieve the perfect look she needs for sunny days and summer nights! Here’s a few of my favorites:
Finally after months of stalking this polka dot wall on Instagram, I got to shoot in front of it! After searching geo-tags on Insta I discovered this wall is actually on the side of a yoga + wellness studio in downtown LA (totally LA right? haha) so I took a little field trip down there to shoot this pastel spring look!
As we all know, I love myself a ‘Pop Of Color‘ and this post has no shortage of color. Besides my newest backdrop obsession, I am currently loving this green shift dress with crochet detailing from Studio 15 NYC! Not only does Studio 15 have great pieces for every gal, what I love is the fact that they donate a portion of every sale to support women entrepreneurs in various countries!
I love the color of this dress and even more so, the crochet detailing! It shows off the smalls of your back which makes this dress perfect for date night in addition to work (if you layer a blazer over it of course)!
F L O W E R power! I am far from a ‘Boho Chic‘ kinda gal, but now that I am living in LA and festival season is upon us, I figured it only makes sense to share some Coachella inspired looks! I actually attended the Boohoo.com Coachella Pop-Up Shop last weekend where Bella Thorne + Mischa Barton were in attendance (oh hey there Marissa Cooper!)…safe to say my brother AKA PopCultureDiedIn2009 was beyond thrilled to get the insider scoop 😉 However I was pumped to see all the floral, fringe and boho-inspired pieces perfect to wear out in Palm Desert!
A signature piece everyone seems to be obsessing over this spring are Floral Bell Bottom Pants! I honestly can’t remember where I found these babies but I kinda love them and may bring them to Coachella with me (heck…they are totally coming haha)
I paired them with a simple white camisole (from Kohls) and layered over a chambray button down shirt (from Nordstrom Rack). While I know most boho gals will be rocking floral pants like these with a crop top…that ain’t my style. I like to show some skin, but not bare it all just yet (hey I still got time to prep for bikini season don’t I? haha)
My shoes and accessories are perfect for festival season as well! Wouldn’t be a festival without some fun neon and fringe — like these necklaces below! And platform shoes — why not right? Especially with bell bottom pants, kinda 70s vibes which I am digging 🙂
Nothing says it’s almost time for the weekend quite like a casual look shot in Venice 😉 I have been stressed beyond belief with work and apartment hunting (every one is telling me I am on the hunt way too early but hey, finding the perfect place ain’t easy!) It reminds me of one of Carrie Bradshaw’s famous lines from Sex and The City ‘In New York you’re always looking for a job, a boyfriend or an apartment‘. Well guess what…same applies to LA haha 😉 Finding the best of everything takes time (especially for me who chooses to #NeverSettle)
For example, finding the best when it comes to dating (ha)…total challenge. LA is the place of everyone trying to sound better than they are, fake careers, stories etc. An account I am completely obsessed with that sums it all up is @OverheardLA! I started following it a couple of months ago and am constantly tagging my friends in the posts…I mean legit blows The Fat Jewish out of the water (especially because the statements are so truly LA)!
Similar to dating, apartment hunting is also deceiving, confusing and occasionally disappointing. Photos online may look great…then in person, not so much haha All about timing and location, if it’s meant to be it’ll be (kinda funny how that same motto typically applies to dating right? :p) Any who…one thing I find meant to be…was scoring this Olive Green Vest from Burlington…on sale for just $15! Y A Y!
