My Signature Style? A LWD (little white dress)! No matter what time of year it is, you will find me in some form of white…white jeans, a white blazer, white pumps and now…a white dress! As some of you may know if you follow me on Instagram + SnapChat (MissyOnMadison), I had a little girls trip to San Diego this weekend to head to the America’s Best Racing (the horse races) at the Delmar Race Track!
Between having the gorgeous track as my photo shoot backdrop and having a fantastic tour guide (thanks Jose) show myself and my friends around the track (we even got to meet the jockeys + pet one of the horses — the highlight of the day for one of my friends hehe) it was honestly one of the best experiences I have had since moving to California<3 The best part is when America’s Best Racing originally invited me to attend the races, they reached out to me to head to the track in NY…little did they know I had up and moved to LA so it was the perfect excuse to have a weekend getaway to San Diego (which was beyond amazing…I kind of wish I was still there right now).
A girls weekend is always a great way to get away, explore a new place and have some fun…especially some fun in the sun. This past weekend, Ali and I headed to Palm Springs to embrace the ‘Coachella‘ desert vibes, soak up some sun and of course hang in the pool with our fav friends…these fun inflatables duh! I have seen every blogger post photos with the inflatable swan or donut, so I found a few more of my favorites because hey the summer is still going strong and these babies need to be added to your pool party right? 😉
While everyone loves a little getaway, I can’t always get up and leave for a vacation (joys of working full time huh :p), so instead, I choose to have the occasional mini ‘staycation‘ in the comfort of my own backyard! Nothing beats some sunshine, fresh flowers and a little rest and relaxation.
Ok, let’s be honest, one of the main reasons we all love going away (or at least why I love going away) is to return home with that refreshed and bronzed glow your skin has after a tropical getaway. Well I found a solution for that and it doesn’t involve any harsh side effects or any overexposure to the sun…it’s the Jergens® Natural Glow® Sunless Tanning Collection! I have been using them since I was in middle school, so it seemed like a natural fit to include as part of my staycation guide here on the blog!
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!
