I hope ya’ll are having a fun weekend so far! I kicked mine off yesterday with the Beachwaver team in Huntington Beach for the US Open of Surfing + it was a BLAST! First off I LOVE the Beachwaver, so to meet the team was amazing + then it was my first time to Huntington Beach, let alone to a surfing competition, safe to say it was a pretty fun Fri-yay! The rest of my weekend is going to be spent shooting content – life of a blogger haha :p But to kick off the weekend I wanted to share one of my favorite summer looks as of late, this Palm Print Dress from Kas New York!
I LIVE for a brightly colored dress with a fun print + this Kas New York dress fits the bill perfectly! I love the palm leaf print + tropical vibe, it’s the ultimate summer dress. While I dressed it up here with heels, I wear it all the time with sandals…whether it’s to the beach or brunch, this dress is perfect to where anytime, anywhere!
My go to shoes for summer have been these white ankle strap heels. They are classy, sassy + match with everything…plus these ones are pretty comfortable.
The Cult Gaia Ark Bag has been a hot trend for a second year in a row now so I had to get one. Honestly this bag has so much room + adds a vacation feel to any look.
I hope ya’ll had a great weekend! My boyfriend + I spent it relaxing, playing some of our favorite board games + catching up on one of our favorite shows, Impractical Jokers (if you haven’t watched it yet, I highly suggest you do, it is hilarious!) I was also doing a lot of research this weekend on what type of content ya’ll are into + I saw Tips, Tutorials + How To’s were amongst the top views recently so I am planning some exciting content in the coming weeks that will be more of just that! Stay tuned :p
Meanwhile, let’s get back to today’s post, this cute Tart Collection’s dress which is perfect for work or play!
I am truly loving this dress! I love the fun print along with the halter style. I feel the halter style looks flattering on almost everyone if you ask me! This dress is also super comfortable :p
I styled this dress with my favorite GiGi New York crossbody bag. What I love about this bag is that it fits all of my essentials + looks good! The quality is amazing too!
My shoes are one of my favorite’s…the white ankle strap heel trend matches with almost everything + they are super comfortable + make your legs look sexy 😉 Who doesn’t love that…am I right?!
I hope your week is off to a great start! I am prepping for a busy weekend ahead filled with photoshoots (and my first ever video shoot – eek I am super excited but also nervous hehe :p). The blog is growing more + more day by day which is amazing! I get to work with killer brands + create fun content for all of you! If you are new here or are still simply learning more about me, my style is filled with fun ‘Pops Of Color’ + girly accents. Whether it’s a flirty skirt like I am wearing here or a sassy dress, the girlier the better!
This rings true for today’s outfit. The unicorn trend is all over the place lately and when I saw this colorful fringe cardigan from Olive and Pepper, I knew I NEEDED it! It’s fun, sassy + is great to style with a plain white tee + a pair of jeans, or with a skater skirt + heels like you see here.
Versatile pieces that can make a statement + be styled multiple ways are always a WIN in my book. Another WIN about this cardigan? It’s price! It retails for just $48– I mean you can’t beat that!!
Here I styled the cardigan with a basic white chiffon camisole + one of my favorite pink skater skirts. I live for skater skirts because they are great for work or play and are flattering on almost every body type!
Both of these pieces are essential for every gal’s wardrobe…sometimes building your closet is all about stocking up on basics you can mix + match.
My heels are another basic I think every gal should stock up on since they are so versatile for any occasion. I love a classic white ankle strap heel…they make your foot look great, show off that new pedicure + are simple and sexy.
My bag is also from Olive and Pepper. It’s an instant summer hit that everyone is wearing! Plus it looks like the Cult Gaia bag for a fraction of the cost!
I hope ya’ll are off to a great week! I am a busy bee with meetings, work + planning this weekend’s content shoot – blogging is a 24/7 business, the amount of work that goes into maintaining a blog, shooting content, editing, writing + finding the perfect spots to shot AND looks is exhausting! I am beyond thankful my boyfriend is supportive + plays photographer (although I bribe him with beer and philly cheesesteaks…his favorite hehe :p)
One of the things that makes blogging worth while is sharing fun + affordable looks with you all! Everything I am wearing in this post retails for under $250 – isn’t that the best?!
My dress is from one of my favorite boutiques, ShopTheMint.com! They have the cutest styles at affordable prices, now that is something I can get behind! From little dresses like this one to heels to accessories to monogram pieces to activewear, outerwear, sweaters + more…they literally have it ALL!
They are sold out of this dress but I linked to some similar styles here + here.
My shoes + bag are total summer staples.
This GiGi New York crossbody bag comes in a variety of colors + retails for just $225. It is genuine leather, lasts a lifetime + goes with every look for any occasion.
These white ankle strap heels are a total MUST for summer. Whether you are heading to the office, a summer wedding, date night or more, they go with EVERYTHING + are super sleek and stylish!
Happy M O N D A Y loves ♥ I hope you all had a great weekend! I finally got to catch up with my bestie who I haven’t seen in forever + naturally what did we choose to do? Take outfit pictures lol…We get a bit crazy on Sundays, what can I say hehe 😉 Isn’t it funny the things you choose to do with your bestie? For some reason Samie + I find it fun to either A) Relax in Palm Springs (which is where we are off to this weekend to celebrate her birthday!) or B) Take outfit pictures, occasionally another option happens C) Outfit pictures in Palm Springs haha A combination of both!
Whether it’s exploring new walls in DTLA or heading out to Palm Springs for a colorful door crawl, Samie + I bond over outfits, photography + our obsession for getting that perfect ‘money shot’ (which in our world means, the pic you will post on Instagram haha). Yesterday was one of those outfit filled days + that’s when I got to sport my new floral kimono from Tobi.com!
This lightweight kimono is perfect to layer over a chiffon camisole to beat the summer heat in LA! Whether you are heading to brunch with girlfriends, dinner with your boo or even the office, this floral kimono instantly adds a little extra something to an ordinary outfit. I opted to pair this kimono with a blush camisole + white skinny jeans for Sunday Funday brunch with Samie.
You can snag this kimono now from Tobi.com for 50% Off!! You know I LOVE a good sale + lucky for me, Tobi has great deals all the time…meaning I can snag stylish pieces at an affordable price point!
I love this little Louis Vuitton Toiletry Pouch but to wear as a clutch! It fits all my essentials + matches with everything, making it a great bag to wear for any occasion.
I also have a slight obsession with ankle strap heels, so it comes as no surprise that I have them in white (I also have them in nude, black, leopard print, pink, yellow + green haha) :p
