I love floral prints. They are so girly and sophisticated looking! This one by Ted Baker reminds me of a 50’s housewife, which I find to be super classy and feminine. I love this fit and flare style, plus it includes a petite bow belt to accentuate the waist. It really is the epitome of a spring/summer dress! Since it is still officially fall for exactly three more days, and it still feels like summer in Arizona with 90 degree temperatures, this dress is totally appropriate!

These royal blue Rachel Roy pumps weigh down the bright print a little too, so I think pairing them with a darker blue instead of another pastel or nude helps make the transition from the tail end of summer to the beginning of fall a bit smoother if you’re worried about it. But honestly, I don’t really even think about rules like, “No White After Labor Day” or “Only Florals in the Spring.” I just wear whatever I’m in the mood for and what the weather permits. I’m a firm believer than you can make anything work with the right accessories! After all, that is usually the deciding factor in “Who Wore It Best.” 😉

I played off of the rose gold accent on the belt and added my own to tie it all together and stuck with minimal make up to keep it fresh!

I have to profess my love for this nail polish too. It is the perfect light lavender milky purple. I like to say it’s the purple version of Mod About You by OPI, which is my favorite pink laquer! I think it matched perfectly with my Viva Glam Nicki 2 lipstick and lipglass as well. Nothing makes me happier than matching lipstick to nail polish, à la Betty Draper in Mad Men.



Wrap It With A Bow

Dress: Topshop (similar) | Shoes: Vince Camuto (similar) | Belt: Halogen (similar) Sunnies: Quay | Purse: Moyna |Bracelets: Nadri, Gifted |Earrings: Baublebar {Similar} | Lipstick: Revlon Color Burst Matte Balm in “Showy”

In my opinion, nothing beats a simple, bright pink dress. It’s versatile, like your LBD, but has so much more personality! I also love dresses with sleeves because sleeves are my fashion friend. Oh, and don’t mind my bruises. I tend to bruise easily, so sporting one somewhere on my body is basically inevitable ha!

This bow belt goes with so many things because of it’s understated simplicity. And you know I like my outfits girly so of course my closet is stocked with vast varieties of bow belts for this very purpose.

Lets talk about these sunglasses. They made by Quay which have fairly inexpensive yet still unique frames so they are easy to try out without breaking the bank!



Tribal Disco

This is sadly the very last of my California trip pictures! No more pretty beach backdrops from now on. Boooooo.

We took these on the La Jolla Beach boardwalk steps away from where my husband, our friends and I stayed, The La Jolla Shores Hotel.

I paired this tribal inspired geometric top from Free People with my Current/Elliott Tahitian blue skinny jeans. I loved how they made the blue embroidery from my blouse pop! I rolled up the bottoms of my Current/Elliot’s to show off the Steve Madden booties. I love the natural color of them, and felt they were the perfect addition to my casual ensemble and didn’t steal the attention away from my colorful top & jeans.

This will also be the last of the purple hair. I recently had it done, it had been 3 months and was long over-due, and my poor sister had to spend about 7-8 hours getting rid of the purple and helping it get back to blonde! I’m loving being bright blonde again, and don’t know what I would do without my sister/hair-stylist/friend!



Organized Chaos







I kept having this problem where no matter how hard I looked, I couldn’t find my favorite lipstick or blush for the life of me. I swore I put it in it’s usual place but it’s like once I had the desire to go and use it, it was lost to the world! Well, I decided I was sick of my cosmetics playing hide and seek with me, so I did something about it!

I purchased all of these clear acrylic cases at The Container Store, mixing and matching what worked for me with the limited space I had. This is quite probably the best organization tool I have ever come across. No joke. I always know exactly where everything is now because the clear acrylic containers let me find what I want in the matter of seconds. If your’re interested in these containers but don’t have the income, I highly suggest you start with the lipstick organizer and then expand your collection from there. Basically, the lipstick organizers are bomb and you will be hooked! Don’t blame me… or do because this, my friends, will make your life a whole lot easier.

Also, I simply had to have this mirror! The sensor is motion activated so it’s hands free all while looking simple and sleek, my favorite!



Floral & Leather

(similar) | Watch: Michael Kors | Bangle: Michael Kors | Rings: Gifted, Ariella Collection (similar) | Sunnies Pouch: Rebecca Minkoff (similar)

We took these pictures at the lovely La Jolla Shores Hotel. My husband and I stayed there with another couple a week after my sibling California trip! Two California trips in less than 2 weeks? Why not? I absolutely love California!

This floral print skirt is so good. It goes with just about everything, and I’ve worn it with just about everything. Black tops, colored tops, army boots, a leather jacket… It’s basically is a neutral in my closet. On this occasion, though, I paired it with this white faux leather Bailey 44 top and leather Dolce Vita sandals. To accessorize, I added a touch of gold toned jewelry and these beautiful Céline sunnies with the perfect pouch to protect them in made by Rebecca Minkoff!

Like I said in my previous post, beach trips just make me strictly pack bright clothing. This California trip was no different and I’m not ashamed. I think neutrals are nice, blacks are a necessity and whites are essential, but colors add personality. And I definitely am not short in that department!

Hope you enjoyed my La Jolla look!
