Paris in The Spring: Floral Ruffle Dress

Friday, May 5, 2017

Floral Ruffle Dress | Sam Edelman Paloma Over the Knee Boots | Le Spec Savanna Sunglasses | Handbag (smilar here)| Tory Burch Cuff Bracelet | Christian Paul Watch | 

Happy weekend everyone.  

Today I wanted to share the look I wore when we visited Paris last month. It took a bit for me to get the blog post together, but I just had to share because I am so obsessed with this dress! 

When we were there, it was a bit cold. So this long sleeve dress and over the knee boots were perfect. I also fell in love with all the ruffles and the cute floral print. It's funny how things become memories- and everytime I look at this dress in my closet I remember all the shennaningans of this Spring day in Paris.

We actually stumbled across this spot and decided to take pictures here. This park was a few minute walk from where we were staying and way the most 

Later this week I'll be sharing a full recap of our trip. 











Hope you like it, love it!

Pink Crochet Peplum Top

Monday, May 1, 2017

 Top- SheIn c/o | Jeans- Express | Shoes- Vince (similar here) | Handbag- Tory Burch | Watch- Christian Paul |

Happy May!

Can you believe how fast this year has gone by?! I feel like it was just New Years. Time flies when you are having fun- I guess (and even if you are not). Therefore, it is best to just enjoy it anyways. 

Today I wanted to share this cute little top- I am in love with it! This is the prettiest shade of pink and the crochet and lace on this is beautiful. AND, it is under $50! Also it has sheer cut outs, but it covers in the right areas to wear a bra. I don't know about you, but I love the clothing with unique cutouts or low backs, but it makes it impossible to wear bras. I always end up wearing a sticky bra- but they aren't my favorite. With this top I can wear a regular strapless bra- win!

Our Visit to Florence

Sunday, April 30, 2017

 Sweater- Wildfox Couture | Jeans- Current Elliot | Shoes- Tory Burch | Handbag- Tory Burch | Necklace- Gorjana

So, I've been dying to share this post... mainly because Florence is my favorite city!

This past month has been a little bit of a scramble, but I'm finally getting some blog posts together to share a couple of my favorite snaps from our recent travels.

I actually studied abroad in Florence when I was a freshman in college, and visiting again brought back so many good memories. Walking through the cobble stone streets in Florence is a little bit majical. There is so much history there, and the beauty is on every street. I've always dreamed of living there- like permanently. Maybe one day I'll have the courage to.

This time I was able to go with my sister- so it was extra special. I took her to all my favorite spots, one of which was Piazza Michelangelo. The views from there are the best in the city! It is definitly a difficult hike up, but it is so worth it. We also got to pop some bubbly up there- we bought some small bottles of proseco from a food cart. It was the perfect way to hang out up there and enjoy the Florence views!
















Hope you like it , love it!

How to feel happy : Spring Dress Edition

Monday, April 17, 2017

Dress- Banana Republic c/o | Heels- Vince Camuto | Necklae- Gorjana c/o | Bag- Henri Bendel c/o

Happy Friday Loves!

So Spring is in the air.... this is by far my favoirte times of year (weather wise) in SoCal.

Today I am teaming up with Banana Republic for the "What Moves Us" campaing. So I wanted to share "How to be happy". Yeah, I know what you are thinking...and maybe you are rolling your eyes. But, today I wanted to share how I found I can turn my mood around. 

It sounds crazy silly I know, but I have litterally typed this into my google search bar. There are just some days that are not all sunshine. For me I have found that just doing the simplest of things can help brighten my mood or just simply make me feel motivated to get out and get going. 

For one, getting out of the uber casual clothing, like leggings, is key. Comfort is great but sometimes it can consume you and make you feel a little lazier. So my first tip is to get dressed. And, maybe on a Tuesday afternoon a dress isn't the answer, but even jeans and a nice blouse can make you feel more put together and happier. However, on the weekends you bet I will pull out a bright dress, like this cute orange one, and go out for dinner. I mean, why not?! We should celebrate everyday and make the most of it- so being overdressed should not be what is holding you back. YES, kick your heel up! Get motivated and get happy. 

Another tip, is to put it simply...retail therapy. I mean it is cheaper than real therapy. But in all seriousness, just get out of the house and go shopping (or even window shopping). Honestly, just walking around and breathing a different kind of air will change your perspective. And, ya never know; you may find that what ever stressed you out before isn't even that big a deal anyways. I acutally even like to go to the grocery store, get some yummy snacks and some flowers. That way I have something nice to look at (which brightens the mood of my place), and something that makes my tummy happy ( #win).  

So there ya have it. I am sharing the most inovative ideas on how to get happy. I know I shocked ya with the complexity of these, lol. Even though they seem like vein ideas, they are really just simple ideas that can easily and quickly be achieved. It is a lot harder and time consuming to fix lifes problems. However, chaninging your perspective can be easier than ya think. 

So what moves you? Do you have any little pick me ups you swear by? Let me know!

Cheers loves!!
