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 :)

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!

This Week’s Look:
◊ Skirt – Forever 21 ◊
◊ Top – Forever 21 ◊
◊ Necklace – Jasper Plum ◊
◊ Shoes – Target ◊
◊ Sunnies – Target ◊

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!

This week’s look:

◊ Shoes – Jeffrey Campbell ◊
◊ Necklace – Forever 21 ◊
◊ Hat – Target ◊
◊ Dress – Target ◊
◊ Kimono – Nordstroms Rack ◊
