I always like to keep a positive outlook + bright perspective even when things are tough. While there is a lot of social unrest, COVID is making a second wave and things are all up in the air right now, one thing that keeps me happy and positive is dressing good which makes me feel good and almost always that includes a cute dress, a great pair of shoes + a little POP of color in the form of a fun accessory. That’s exactly why I love this look, it’s my instant ray of sunshine because when you look good you feel good (even if it is just to head to the grocery store or the post office hehe :p)
I am loving this white eyelet dress from Lovers + Friends via REVOLVE. The back ties up and the puff sleeves are a perfect summer accent. This dress is great for brunch with friends, date night + more so it is instantly becoming a summer fashion statement. I’m a firm believer every gal needs a little white dress.
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?
Summer is in full swing + that means time to stock up on some cute new pieces! My go to boutique? Pink Lily! They have such great styles at affordable prices from pretty dresses to the perfect 4th of July gear to great swimwear + more. I’m rounding up some of my fav picks below so you can stock up on your summer must-haves (ya’ll will LOVE these I promise ya)!
I hope ya’ll had a great weekend! My BF + I spent it shooting outfits in Burbank, followed by a fun car show. ICYMI, I am a major classic car fan, so anytime there is an opportunity to see a car show, I am down! I love nostalgia, thinking of an easier time when we weren’t glued to our funs + instead were living in the moment, another thing that gives me nostalgia? Vintage inspired fashion, like this Venus yellow polka dot dress! When I laid eyes on this dress, I instantly thought 50s housewife or time to go watch the horse race hehe :p Either way, it’s definitely not typical LA + that is why I love it so much!
When I spotted this dress, I instantly fell in love. It is just so bold, bright + fun! The halter style with midi length makes it the perfect classy dress for any occasion. I recently discovered Venus.com + realized they truly have the BEST dresses, and if you know me, you know I love a good dress.
I styled this dress with another fun find from Venus, this Sunshine + Chill Floppy Hat. It’s the ultimate vacation hat, I mean, Sunshine + Chill? What’s more vacay ready than that haha!
My bag + shoes are the perfect summer accessories. This white Cult Gaia bag is the ‘IT’ item of the season, making it one of my current favorites. As for my shoes, well I am a firm believer that every gal should own at least one pair of white pointed toe pumps (I own three hehe :p)
For summer, I always find white accessories to be the way to go…maybe I just have a white obsession but I love the clean, crisp look of white heels or bags.
This week has been an absolute whirlwind. From busy days at work, to playing hostess to my brother who is in town visiting to working on blog content…there simply aren’t enough hours in the day to get everything done! This weekend is BeautyCon and I am super excited to see all of my favorite brands AND get tips from my fav beauty Youtubers on how they get their makeup looking flawless. With BeautyCon being the IT event of the weekend, that means I need to pick the perfect look + I think I found it from Habitual!
For some reason this look reminded me of the 2000’s. Maybe it’s the denim skirt (I haven’t worn a denim skirt in forever) haha but when I put this look together I instantly had Britney Spears and Paris Hilton come to mind :p
This skirt from Habitual is super fun for summer with it’s pleated, asymmetrical design and I paired it with this mesh button down blouse, also from Habitual (I think the mesh is a fun twist on a traditional button down style). This shirt is great for date night with high waisted pants, a skirt or even cut off shorts. The skirt is ideal to pair with a crop top, fun button down like this one or even a body suit – honestly I am feeling club vibes (wouldn’t Paris totally wear this to Le Deux? haha I think so)
My heels are my new favorites for summer from AMI Clubwear. How cute is this teal color to add a Pop Of Color to any look?! They retail for under $20 here.
This bag is great for everyday errands or heading to dinner etc from GiGi New York! The fun tassel adds a little flare to it + the zip pockets and size make it ideal to fit all of your much needed essentials. I love this style of bag for everyday wear.
