Happy Monday! Another weekend is over + time for another long week ahead (ugh especially with daylight savings…I feel like I missed more than just an extra hour of sleep…maybe more like an entire day? haha :p) Anyways…I spent the weekend shooting some spring looks + campaigns which I can’t wait to share with you guys…so let’s get it started with this casual yet well put together look for spring, shot in the gorgeous Hollywood Hills (perks of LA living)!
I usually always incorporate color into my looks, but I decided to embrace neutrals for spring with this outfit! I got this cardigan from Old Navyon clearance (luckily they are having a huge S A L E right now, with tons of cardigans on sale)!
My dress is from Threads For Thought and I love how it can either be casual for weekend adventures or it can be dressed up for the office (plus the material is super lightweight and comfy).
I based this whole outfit pretty much around this tan floppy hat from Target (hey…totally normal to base a look around an accessories or pair of shoes you are dying to wear :p)!
Sunshine + Clear Skies…perks of Winter in LA! I have gotten so accustomed to LA life that I can’t even imagine moving back to NY and dealing with the cold temps (especially after seeing all of my friends’ Facebook status talking about how many layers they need to wear just to step out the door…not to mention the blizzardwarnings, road closures and the un-glamorous digging your car out of the snow photos). Yup, I think LA is the place for me…sunshine, the ability to wear short sleeves in the winter + I get to wear white pumps like these without the fear of a slushy sidewalk ruining them :p The perks seem pretty endless…
Even in NY I was obsessed with leather leggings…especially these ones from HUE! They are sexy, comfortable and keep me just the right amount of warm for those chilly days in LA (which are rare)!
So this a a huge accomplishment for me…I am actually wearing and embracing ‘The Maxi Dress‘! I have thought for years that the maxi dress silhouette wasn’t ideal for me since I am a shorty :p FYI I am 5’4 (yes, I know heels make me look taller haha) so I was beyond thrilled when I got this Threads 4 Thought Maxi in the mail and it fit like a glove! It was a Cinderella moment…except with a dress and not shoes…who would have thought 😉Since the dress is simple and clean, I dressed it up with some awesome fall accessories because that is the perfect way to transition any summer piece into the new season (although this maxi can be worn year round :p).
I love this acid wash denim jacket (as if my love for denim jackets wasn’t already obvious) I needed a new one to add to the mix and this one from Target is perfect + has some give so you can actually stretch your arms out (a huge deal for me!) Comfort + Style = Happy Missy!
Floppy hats are my current obsession for fall so since I styled my black one a bunch of times, it was about time to pick it up in another shade…brown it is! Also from Target, $16.99 is a total must-have!
And then once again, had to transition my summer white Gucci Bag into the fall and this was the perfect outfit to do so! I am a firm believer that accessories should no longer be season bound…as in why not wear pieces you love year round? If it is styled the right way, anything is possible 😉
Happy Tuesday Loves! I’ve always dreamed of going to Palm Springs after seeing all of the great Coachella pics on instagram…fun outfits, floppy hats and plenty of florals is totally my scene, so I decided to bring Palm Springs to my little piece of paradise on Long Island…my backyard! My top is from Abercrombie…I’m assuming a clearance find because I don’t think I ever spent regular price there since i was in middle school…my mom always taught me bargains are the way to go 😉 (Similar top is available from Bloomingdales)My lovely little floppy hat (the only hat I actually own by the way) is from Target…last summer (Similar one from Back Country is available)My shoes and shorts are Old Navy finds of course! Like I said, I love a good bargain 😉 I loved the green color of these sandals…don’t they just scream summer?! Shop My Look Below <3
