And just like that…it’s summer time! Ok, well summer may officially start on June 20th, but the second Memorial Day Weekend passes, I am in a summer state-of-mind…which means N E W accessories to brighten up your wardrobe + really make a statement all summer long 😉 Although I am all about shopping on a budget, one item I was taught to never ever skimp out on is a quality handbag!
I got my first designer handbag when I was in the 3rd grade…a Louis Vuitton (my mama raised me with good taste…what can I say haha :p). Ever since then, I have had a long standing love affair with great quality designer bags, so when Farbod Barsum arrived in Beverly Hills, I knew I had to check him out, and a new obsession quickly began…brightly colored handbags + accessories made in the U.S. with the most exotic skins to make truly one of a kind pieces ♥ Maybe that is why the designer has so many loyal celebrity fans (Louis Roe, SJP + more)…If SJP approves of something, then you know it’s a ‘must have’ :p
The chic store located in Beverly Hills is filled with brightly colored bags, travel accessories + more that are perfect for any fashionista who wants to truly make a statement. Since moving to LA, I learned that you need to stand out. Every gal has a Chanel, a YSL etc. But I love to not follow the crowd when it comes to my handbags…go big or go home. If you are ready to invest in a stunning designer bag, why not pick a unique one that not everyone around town has…a bag speaks volumes. The right bag in a way is more than just a bag, it is an ice breaker, a conversation piece, an extension of your own personal style…Farbod Barsum understands how important great quality + design are when it comes to handbags + accessories, that’s why I am currently pinching my pennies + saving up to snag one of these beauties…I mean can you blame me? 😉

Take me to Turks…Imagine! Getting up and heading to Turks and Caicos…saying adios at the office and just getting away? Oh what a dream…for now, wearing Turquoise, dreaming of a tropical island will have to suffice :p Fun fact…I shot this colorful look (featuring my new All For Color tank) on my new street in Burbank! Perks of moving out of WeHo? Amazing places to shoot and I don’t have to worry about parking or getting a ticket! YASSS♥
With summer quickly approaching, adding more color to your wardrobe is essential (especially for me :p), I always love a Pop Of Color and luckily ‘All For Color‘ helps me get my color fix year round! I love their tops, sweaters, dresses, swimsuits + beyond…they are awesome to add color to any look♥
And the weekend is over…time to embark on a new week and hopefully that involves (plenty) of green tea, some exciting packages (I may or may not have done a little online shopping this weekend — #oops…only way to see is on SnapChat – MissyOnMadison) + getting some work done (that’s kinda required I guess huh :p). If you weren’t already aware, I am slightlyaddicted to green tea and my addiction got even worse over the weekend, when I headed to Costco and I spotted their citrus green tea which if you haven’t tried it, you are missing out because it is literally the most AMAZING green tea I have ever had (thanks mom :p)! My mom is always trying to get me to save money and be on a budget but in my mind…if it’s on sale I saved money duh hehe Well, in her never ending battle to get me to save money she suggested I try the Costco brand green tea to cut out my daily Starbucks expenditure (after doubting her, I gave in and got the tea)…best purchase I made this weekend…actually it was the best thing that happened to me this weekend…let’s just say I had the most awkward date ever and pretty much contemplated walking out on it (this was an absolute first)…but onto a lighter subject haha…my outfit 😉
I am off on a little day trip to San Francisco today! I seriously can’t wait for the time when I can actually spend some quality time in SF, but for now, a mini getaway will do (follow along on SnapChat – MissyOnMadison) 😉 While picking out what to wear today I got pre-occupied with some online shopping (because we all know how that goes haha) and I have seriously become obsessed with pineapples…all things pineapple to be exact.
I have seen pineapple tees, rompers, shoes, decor + more all over instagram and other blogs, so I felt inspired to round up some of my favorite picks because what is better than a shopping guide completely centered around pineapples 😉
The toughest thing after a nice relaxing weekend is heading back to the normal ‘rise + grind’ on a Monday. No matter how long you are working for, the struggle never gets easier and it is in fact ‘real‘ 😉 I spent this past weekend in Palm Springs (if you follow me on SnapChat you got to see my random shenanigans…and if you don’t follow me well now you should duh! — this way you don’t miss out next time hehe – MissyOnMadison). After relaxing by the pool in the middle of a 90 degree desert it kind of made me never want to leave (can you blame me?)…although I would have loved to stay forever…I had to come back to reality…LA.
