And it’s Thursday…I can’t believe how quick this week has flown by already as I am writing this from sunny California! The sun is shining, the palm trees are looking as pretty as ever and I have a hectic schedule planned ahead. So far my brother and I have visited USC (which has the most GORGEOUS campus ever btw…If I wanted to put myself in debt with student loans and pursue a Masters USC would definitely be the place…just saying :p)
Anyways, I digress…this tropical spring look is currently with me in LA and I am contemplating whether to wear it tonight to the Polo Lounge in the Beverly Hills Hotel or to wear it tomorrow night to SUR (because it wouldn’t be a trip to LA without stalking Lisa Vanderpump…yup I am a Bravo addict #GuiltyAsCharged)
So yes…this happened…I finally wore a romper! First time in years wearing one, but when I spotted this floral number from Choies I knew it was meant to be! With my trip to LA just around the corner, I figured this would be the perfect outfit to pack for brunch, lunch, events or a trip to the Santa Monica pier (can you tell I have been California dreaming for a while now :p).
I have been counting down heading back to LA since my first visit last year…the sunshine, palm trees and the ability to wear shorts, skirts and dresses everyday is a little slice of heaven for me…
Bright colors always make me happy…after being sick in bed for the past two days I am finally feeling a little better (and let me tell ya I am quite the drama queen when it comes to me being sick) and am ready to get back into my groove (whatever that may be haha). Nothing is worse than being cooped up in bed on a 90 degree day (especially after such a brutal winter) but I guess my body didn’t agree with me. So naturally I would share a bright new outfit as a little ‘pick me up‘ to me and you because let’s be real by the time Wednesday rolls around everyone needs a little pep in their step to make their way to the weekend 😉
Just call them ‘Prints Charming‘ 😉 A trend I am seeing all over the place this spring is printed pants. Palazzo pants, fit and flare and joggers are all over the place and I think it’s about time I snag a pair (wouldn’t they be perfect for my trip to LA?) I think these will be added to the ‘Must Get’ list!
Any who, I only own one pair of printed joggers (which I wore back in the fall with a crop top + a boyfriend blazer) and it has been a bit of a struggle to find flattering printed pants for every shape. You don’t want a tight fit that hugs every curve unless you are in tip-top shape (which I am definitely not haha) so a jogger fit or a fit and flare style is the way to go in my opinion!
Here are a few of my favorites (and they are all under $75)…chic yet affordable!
It’s just days away…Mother’s Day! So the other day I shared a few gift ideas to make your mom smile…no matter what she is into, and today I share what to wear for Mother’s Day brunch, lunch or dinner (why Mother’s Day always centers around a springy meal I don’t know, but I do know 9 times out of 10 a white dress is appropriate!)
I just wore this white dress a week ago on the blog (#SorryNotSorry) but I honestly can’t get enough of it AND it is perfect for any spring special occasion. To really make it pop…I incorporated hints of neon because nothing brightens up a special day likes bright yellow and lime hues right?
