And I am off…to LA that is! I can’t wait to be back amongst the palm trees and in my happy place! I am staying with Kristi (a little throwback to my last year’s LA excursion) and my brother is joining me this time around to visit some of his dream schools and get the full LA experience!
When it came to packing…well there were some hiccups. First off…my luggage broke…yea I only used it for two trips and the wheel is already busted so I had to make an impromptu trip to Kohls to get a new suitcase (big enough to fit all of the neon in my closet of course hehe) Did I mention how much loveKohls yet…because I seriously do <3 They have EVERYTHING!
Anyways…after solving the luggage problem, I packed a few pairs of shorts, plenty of shoes, a few bikinis and of course sunnies!

If you ask me, it smells like spring spirit! Bright colors, warm weather with a slight breeze…I have never been happier…can’t ya tell 😉 I feel like I can finally come out of hibernation and be me again hence why I am all smiles in today’s post (plus the fact that I am only a month away from attending Lucky FABB in NYC (see my experience from last year’s conference in LA here) + heading on my trip to LA…may have something to do with that smile haha)
Anyways…you know I love any outfit that involves color, so a blue bag and blue sunnies had to complete this winter to spring transitional look…duh! I actually found this look in my archives of outfits in my iPhoto library…it’s crazy how many looks I’ve shot that haven’t been posted yet. I think I have this fear of not having enough outfit inspo to share with you guys and I would never want haha plus nothing is worse than wasting a great outfit without it being seen right? 😉
Feels like spring spirit! I was beyond thrilled at how warm NYC was yesterday…I actually got to show some leg (an appropriate amount of course…) and not have to bundle up in layers…Spring has Sprung! This look is the epitome of spring…white skinny jeans, bright colors, white pumps and a signature pair of sunnies…out with the dark hues and in with shades of light! This ensemble was shot back when I was in Florida for my Birthday a few weeks ago and I am already itching for another trip (seriously is it May yet…LA here I come)! Yesterday was a busy work day…I brought four of my blogger gal pals to Kleinfeld to have their very own Cinderella moment in honor of the movie coming to theaters Friday and let’s just say it was a magical afternoon 😉 Follow @KleinfeldBridal to find out more…but as for my outfit…well you have to read on to get your own ‘happily ever after‘ :pSpeak of color, I had to wear this blue face Michael Kors watch again for this post (yes I know I just wore it Monday#SorryNotSorry :p) When an outfit has so many different colors sometimes to pull the look together, a chic classic bag is necessary like the black quilted ‘Affair’ bag from Rebecca Minkoff here. And naturally a killer pair of sunnies (especially bright ones like these) are needed to really embrace the warmer weather and to make a statement.
I must admit I have a slightobsession with white…white jeans…white pumps#AllWhiteEverything…with a ‘Pop Of Color‘ of course 😉 Although white is a challenge to keep clean, when worn properly it is so classy, chic, fresh and clean…and it can match with so many different options and in the spring I am always wanting to mix and match!
Happy Fri-Yay! What better way to kick off the weekend than with some shopping! Well in true Missy fashion, I never pay retail for anything (you think I am kidding but I’m not…if there isn’t a sale, a promo code or a coupon, it ain’t getting purchased :p) so I had to share a shopping guide where all the items are on SALE (ends 3.7.15) + Get FREE Shipping (win/win if you ask me!). Use code BigEvent15 at checkout from ShopBop to get upwards of 25% off your entire order <3
There may still be snow on the ground, but in my mind it’s time to shop for spring + more importantly, start shopping for my upcoming trip to LA in May! All I want is colorful handbags, cute sandals and plenty of rompers and jump suits (need to feel like a true laid back Californian :p) While I shared about of my picks above, scroll down to shop + share more of my picks and be sure to comment with what pieces you are craving for spring!
This is what I am wearing to the office today…NOT! Trust me I am counting down the seconds till I could slip on some shorts and sandals once again, but for now I will have to relive some sunny moments with these photos from one of my outfit shoots in Florida (if you missed my previous Florida posts check them out here + here). The weather was perfect, not too hot…not too cold, just right…The perfect weather to mix a cropped sweater, shorts + of course sandals (how great are these white ankle strap sandals…I can’t wait to wear them all spring/summer long, PS you can get them for under $50 below)!
This white sweater was a staple of mine in Florida because it would be brisk in the morning, warm in the afternoon and then slightly cooler in the evening so this sweater came with me everywhere (a gal has to be prepared at all times :p).My accessories were staples for my trip as well. Simple white sandals can be worn with jeans, shorts, skirts or dresses, so they are a great option to bring when traveling to a warmer climate (which is pretty much anywhere other than New York #GetMeOutOfHere). My bag is from Coach a few years back but I found two similar cross body options here + here. And of course some bling is always in order…I layer this skull necklace over everything + yes, I am totally obsessed with these blue Ray Bans which were a Birthday gift from my parents right before I left for my trip.
So in actuality I am bundled up in layers…warm pants, sweaters, vests and more…pretty much yesterday’s outfit post but hey it’s fun to have a little ‘throwback‘ moment every now and then right? :p| Click To Shop + Share My Look |
