 Today I am teaming up with Velvet Heart to share a casual look that can easily transition into Fall. As much as I try to fight it, summer is slowly coming to an end. And even though it is still hot outside, Fall fashion is slowly creeping in. Don't get me wrong, I love Summer (mainly the idea of summer vaca mode haha) but I love prefer Fall fashion. I am currently in love with this rich brick color! It is definitely a must have in your wardrobe. I am also crushing on dark plums, and fuchsia colors. I feel like these are the perfect colors to transition from Summer to Fall. 

I personally can't wait for temperatures to fall so I can start layering again!Layers and boots! Boots are my favorite type of shoe! So naturally they are slowly but surely making their way back into my daily outfits. Fall I'm ready for you!

This week has really gone by in a blink of an eye. Just yesterday it was August 1st... and now it's mid August. Seriously, can someone press pause!? I don't know know about everyone else, but I never want summer to end. And all this Fall fashion talk has me in shock of how time really does fly by!!

To stay in a summery mood, today I am sharing a look that is inspired by those hot summer days. I say this all the time, but it's true, rompers are the comfiest and easiest thing to wear.  I particularly love this romper because of the small Pom Pom detail ! Cuteness !! I like to have solid colored pieces like this in my closet because they are so easy to mix and match with other accessories.  As much as I like a great print, I always find my self reaching for solid colored pieces. It makes it so much easier to coordinate an outfit when I am wearing other statement pieces, like a bag or jewelry.

Another great thing about this romper, it is from White Plum.... And there is still time to enter the giveaway to win a $75 store credit to spend on anything your heart desires... Keep reading below to enter!

Stripes Everywhere: Stripped dress and stripped tote

Thursday, August 7, 2014

Dress- Gap | Bag- Kate Space via eBags c/o | Necklaces- Express (similar tassel necklaces here ); 
Kate Spade (similar idea here) | Sunnies- Prada | Wedges- DV by Dolce Vita ( similar here, love these nude ones! ) | Watch- Movado | Bracelet- Itchelita Jewelry c/o | 

Happy Thursday everyone! 

Today I wanted to share a dressier look featuring this beautiful striped tote from eBags online. At first I was concerned that the pattern in the bag would make it harder to wear. However, that is not the case! I have always gravitated toward solid colored bag, but now I know how versatile a great print can be!

I wore this bag all last weekend on a short trip to San Diego-It was so versatile! I wore this with every outift! Wore it to the baseball game, to explore the city, on a whale watching excursion and to dinner! The size was perfect to carry all my necessities: camera, snacks, sunnies, light sweater etc. I love how this bag transitions effortlessly for day to night out! ( This was the day version, just in case you missed it) We celebrated my dad's big "5-0" birthday, so naturally there was a birthday dinner to celebrate. I ended up wearing this stripped outfit for our evening out. It was so much fun!!

Monday Must: Shop

Monday, August 4, 2014





Nude// (top to bottom): Sandals // Wedges // Espadrilles // Flats //
Black// (top to bottom): Pumps // Sandals // Sandals // Espadrilles //
Leopard// (top to bottom): Pumps// Sandals// Sneakers // Espadrilles //


My basic shoe staples come in the three basic neutral colors: nude, black and of course leopard ( I a firm believer that leopard is a neutral). Basically, I am sharing this post because I realized I did not have simple strappy black sandals or neutral pumps. So these are a couple shoes I felt every girl needs NOW! 

I always look for interesting styles and colors, but lets be honest, a classic silhouette and neutral color is always a necessity. A couple silhouettes I feel are the most versatile are: 1. Classic pumps 2. Strappy Sandals 3. Flats (sneakers, espadrilles, etc.) Above are some of my favorite styles (which vary in prices, psst the majority are on sale!) 



Hope you like it! Love it!

Striped Summer Tote

Thursday, July 31, 2014


Top- Pim+ Larkin | Jeans- Joe's Jeans | Shoes- Converse | Bag- Kate Spade eBags c/o | Sunnies- Marc by Marc Jacobs | Necklaces- Purple Peridot c/o , Accessory Concierge c/o | Watch- Michael Kors | Bracelets- Itchelita Jewelry c/o |

Today I am teaming up with eBags to show you how to wear the perfect summer tote! Big bags have always been my personal favorite... they fit just about everything. I think it has a lot to do with my overpacking problem... I always like to be "prepared", so I take lots of things with me everywhere I go. When it comes to finding a handbag, I like to choose bags I know have enough room for me to carry all my necessities. For summer I fell in love with striped tote. The color is amazing and stripes are one of my favorite prints ! 

Today I wanted to share how I would wear my bag with a casual outfit. I find I get the most use of my totes when I have to go shopping or when I am traveling. (Oh also, for casual flower stops when I walk around with beautiful flowers in my bag .... haha, everyone does this right?!!) A personal peeve of mine is using plastic bags ( usually Target, or grocery stores). I hate, hate, HATE when cashiers give me a plastic bag when all I bought was a nail polish or shampoo...I feel it is such a waste to use plastic bags in those situations because I am going to throw the bag away anyways. This is when the big bag comes in. When ever I make a Target stop, I throw all my goodies in my tote and I am good to go. Functionality meets beautiful bag, check!
