Weekend Wardrobe: Cool Tones

IMG_9048There is no other way to spend a casual, sunny and cool Sunday, than at brunch with friends! Since I was feeling a bit lazy from the busy weekend, I went for a more laid-back look that would also work well with the weather. This outfit embraces a casual cool vibe with the neutral colors, cuffed denim jeans, and white flowy kimono. I had to obviously top the outfit off with a few of my favorite accessories – reflective sunnies and my TanneryLA bag!

Hope everyone had a great weekend, and is refreshed for another week ahead! Cheers!

Dress It Up or Down

Most of the time, I am the person at the holiday parties that is way overdressed. I can’t help that I love clothes and dressing up! Life of an aspiring fashionista… For this year’s holiday party, I decided to mix it up a bit – dress it up on top, but dress it down on the bottom, or what my Grandma likes to call it “a fancy top with raggedy jeans!” haha. I obviously had to “shoulder” my jacket (tip: if all else fails, shoulder it), rock the shades, strap on the studded heels, and flash off my favorite Tannery LA bag to add a little bit more steeze to the outfit :)

Every year as temps start to drop, I hunt for looks that will keep me warm without compromising style. I love this look because it’s simple and perfect for day-to-night versatility! The warm knit sweater adds an element of casual comfort to an otherwise polished glam, and gets bonus points for being comfy + warm. If you’re looking for a sleeker look, opt for a leather jacket in place of the sweater! The peep-toe booties have a flair that’s flirty and fun, but switch them out for knee-high boots in cooler weather! Tie the whole look together with romantic curls and simple makeup.

Happy Sunday beauties! I had the best weekend sipping PSLs with besties and going to the farmers market and playing with puppies! It was a simple weekend of little pleasures, but those are seriously my fave! I’m anticipating a serious case of the #MONDAYBLUES mañana after this peaceful little perfect weekend.

Today’s ootd was Free People inspired but on a total Forever 21 / Target budget (WINNING!). I’m always trying to branch out and find fun bohemian pieces on a budget because I’m otherwise known to go overboard at Free People or Planet Blue << these shops are my weakness! This week, I rediscovered my love for Forever 21 & Tarjay Boutique and embraced fashion on a budget!

Weekend Wardrobe: Nordstrom, Forever 21, Neo 39

I know, I know, I am a little late with the weekend wardrobe update! Better late than never, right? On Sunday, my girlfriends and I had a celebratory brunch for a friend who is leaving for Med School!! Due to the hot summer weather, I thought I would keep it cool and classy with a flowy floral dress. I didn’t want to accessorize too much because the dress already draws so much attention with its vibrant colors. Also, I decided to go with shorter heels to give the outfit a more casual/daytime look. How are you staying cool, yet fashionable during these hot summer days? Share with us!

Greetings from beautiful Spain!! This weekend, I opted for a simple chambray / floral skirt combo. This look is super comfortable, airy, and protects your shoulders from the sun when exploring a new city! I threw on a sequined cloth necklace for a little extra glam, and put my hair in a messy braid to avoid frizz from the nearby ocean breezes. I even wore my skirt backwards (gasp) for an edgier, zipper-in-front look. Simple, fun, and perfect for travel!

If you haven’t noticed, my summer fashion obsessions are kimonos and sundresses! I have been in a very happy mood the past few days, which my outfit clearly displays. The bright colors and the prints are not only a reflection of my mood, but also of the beautiful Cali weather! Of course, I had to throw in my ‘happy’ Pharrell hat, go-to Jeffrey Campbell booties, and statement necklace to add a little kick and dimension to the outfit!

Last night was all about dinner & bar hopping with friends. To get comfortable, I ditched the heels and went with some super cute Joie sandals instead. By the end of the night, I was the last one dancing (and my feet were seriously grateful).

This week’s inspo comes from the beautiful weather we’re having in SoCal! I wanted to put together a look that was brunch appropriate and simultaneously beach-ready! Patterned stretch skirts and flowy crop tops pair super well and are both versatile and comfy! Wear your hair in a casual top knot, and you’ve perfected the look! I’m sporting this style all summer long folks!
