Things are starting to brighten up in the world! It’s PRIDE month, it’s summertime, lockdown orders are lifting, restaurants, stores etc are beginning to re-open + I’m beginning to feel a sense of normalcy again (hallelujah!) Last week was a heavy week, not going to lie. America is undergoing a lot of changes + growing pains hopefully leading to a stronger nation + unified people. Because last week was pretty emotional for us all my fiance + I decided to venture out for a little road trip + headed to Santa Barbara where we found this gorgeous photo moment!
I thought this spot was so cute to shoot this new Lovers + Friends dress I got from REVOLVE because who doesn’t love a rainbow. I also love this spot because this beautiful piece of artwork is made up of various colors, like our country. It takes different colors coming together to make up a beautiful rainbow, something we should always remember, when we come together beautiful things can form.
I paired this dress with my new RAYE wedges that are sure to become a summer staple for me because they match with every type of look + are super comfortable!
I also felt this look was the perfect time to bring out my new Louis Vuitton Escale Toiletry Pouch that sold out within days. Tie Dye is such a trend this season so I am loving this print from Louis Vuitton…how can you not!
Embracing color is something you should always do, especially this season…be BOLD, be YOU!
It’s not very often you get to match one of your childhood favorite summer treats but today I get to! When I was a kiddo I loved the summer time because we would stock up on all the best ice cream + popsicles. My favorite? Rocket Pops! Not only are these red, white + blue treats perfect to kick off 4th of July festivities, they are beyond tasty with their mix of lemon lime, cherry + blueberry flavors. Naturally when I discovered this fun rocket pop inspired bag from Shop Harvey’s I knew I needed it + knew it was perfect for the upcoming July 4th holiday!
While this look may be a tad bit dressy for your average backyard BBQ, I am a firm believer in go big or go home haha And there is no such thing as ‘too dressy’. The perfect outfit is the one you feel most confident in, and that is this patriotic look for me!
This Rocket Pop inspired bag is the perfect handbag for the 4th of July. It has room for your phone, keys and all your other firework watching essentials. I love the material (it’s made from recycled seat belts, how cool right?!) + I am obsessed with the bright + bold look.
I built my outfit around this bag so I styled it with a chic white wrap dress from SHEIN. They honestly have the best dresses at great prices, that’s a combination you just can’t beat! I am linking to a few of my favorites below!
My shoes are also perfect for the 4th (and anytime in between) because they add a bold pop of color to any ensemble + they are also super comfortable!
Investing in some bright + colorful heels is always a good idea because they can be so versatile to style with various looks year round. Pair these beauties with dresses, skirts, white jeans, black slacks + so much more for work or play!
A little fun fact, my BF thought shooting with an actual Rocket Pop would make the photos more fun (which it definitely did!) BUT it was melting down my hand the entire time 😛 haha The things we go through for the perfect photos…can you see it melting in my hand?
I don’t know about you but when I think of Easter, I instantly think of pastel colored Easter Eggs. Whether it’s decorating them, or hiding them, or having them as decor in your Easter basket, who doesn’t love some pastel eggs, am I right?! Well since Easter is around the corner I figured I’d style a look inspired by my favorite eggs…because why not, life’s too short to not stand out like a rainbow!
First off let me just say, I am LOVINGthis sweater. I have accumulated a plethora of rainbow sweaters as of late + this one is a favorite because of it’s pastel hues making it perfect for Easter + spring in general!
I styled it with a baby blue skater skirt – I have been stocking up on this style of skirt for under $20 from Amazon (it is so flattering + comes in a variety of different colors – like over 20+ to be exact). Skater skirts are great to pair with just about anything for a fun, flirty look!
White pumps are a signature shoe every lady should have! They are a chic classic you can never go wrong with + will last you for years to come, linking to some of my favorites along with my favorite Gucci bag below (similar styles as mine here is no longer available).
For spring I have some favorites I will be wearing all season long and this yellow sweater, white skirt, white booties + bag are pretty much a major part of them! As you all know, I love a major POP of color so I began stocking up on bright neon + pastel sweaters for spring + summer, like the one I am wearing here. This one is lightweight, perfect for layering + it is great to wear over a bralette or swimsuit for upcoming festival season!
I have been living in stripes lately, especially rainbow stripes. They are the perfect style to make a statement with this spring! Whether you are looking for the perfect skirt to wear to the office or for a night out with the gals, a striped skirt like this one can be styled so many ways + makes for a must-have piece to add to your wardrobe.
I scored this striped skirt from the Who What Wear collection at Target. It is no longer available but I am linking to some similar styles below.
I paired it with a simple black bodysuit since the rainbow stripes are the main statement piece of the ensemble. Investing in a chic black bodysuit is always a good idea since you can style it so many ways with various outfits.
I haven’t worn these gray suede pumps in ages but they are slowly becoming a favorite of mine again. They are a great alternative to simple black ones + they are a refreshing neutral to style in your spring wardrobe. Linking to some of my favorites below along with my favorite ‘Pop Of Color‘ this red Gucci bag.
