Don’t Forget Your Green…

March 11, 2014

Outfit Floral

This post is somewhat of a joke, because my plan was to put a cute green outfit together for any St. Patty’s Day celebrations… unfortunately this plan backfired when I realized the only green I have in my closet is one green work dress and some green aviators.  Guess we know what color I should try to venture into more in 2014?


Hopefully this military jacket safely passes for a green?  Anyway, with this spring like weather this past weekend, I was ready to break out some fun floral shorts for brunch with J.   IMG_8105 Florals are fun, but bright pink shorts can be a little overwhelming – here are 3 of my starter tips for incorporating florals into your wardrobe:

  1. Pair with masculine items – i.e. a military jacket, chambray shirt… I’ve even paired with a button up and blazer for a more dressed up look.
  2. Don’t shy from (1-2) fun accessories – I incorporated simple glitter sandals and a fun color bag… an accessory or two adds a fun element, just be cautious of overdoing it, so your outfit doesn’t look costumey.
  3. Have fun! I love wearing things that make me happy… nothing makes you feel better than sitting on cute little pink flowers… so what are you waiting for?!

Summer Lovin’

January 28, 2014


I never thought I would be posting a summer dress in the middle of January, but this California weather is a little out of control.  During our visit to SLO this past week we were blessed with 80 degree weather, and it was nice to break out some of our summer gear (despite my white legs and toes that haven’t seen the sun in a few months…).

Shake Your Tail Feather

January 14, 2014

Green Shift Outfit

I love unexpected details… and this dress, while assuming from the front has a fun surprise once you turn around.

Peacock Feather Dress

I love dresses that easily transition… this is a great one no matter the season – pair with tights/boots, sandals and a pony tail, or even tucked into a pencil skirt and heels for work.

I also cannot say enough about this GiGi New York bag (and no, I am not getting paid to say that – sadly). It is super rare that I invest in a purse that I haven’t had on my wishlist for years, but this was an impulse buy that DEFINITELY worked out.  The color is so perfect my fall/winter wardrobe… and if you are into navys, olives, cream, white, browns and eggplants, I HIGHLY recommend a purse this color in your repertoire.

Bedazzled Blazer

Jeans and Bedazzled Blazer Blazer, J.Crew Tank (old), J.Crew Jeans, Sam Edelman Wedges, Louis Vuitton Speedy

Louis Vuitton and JCrew Jeans I always love a little glitter, glitz and glam and this blazer does the trick!  Perfect to elevate a simple lunch date outfit.

Bedazzled Blazer I also am a big fan of a suede black shoe, and these Sam Edelmans fit the bill.  Although they are from a couple seasons ago, these, these and these are good substitutes! Walk Away JCrew Jeans

While the blog this week is focusing on health, resolutions and new beginnings – I wanted to share one of my changes.  A hair cut!  I pretty much have had the same hair my whole life, but I love a little change every now and then (no matter how small).  My mom (and lifelong hairdresser), added a ton of layers, and while my new do my not be apparent to everyone, it is amazing how much of a difference it has made to me!  Have you or are you making any physical changes going into 2014?


Cozy Casual

December 24, 2013

Reading Navy Gray Outfit With the holiday season in full swing – hello?! it’s Christmas Eve, I’m fully embracing relax mode… but with the hours until present opening, I still have a few errands to run (and a few more hours to put in at the office), and what better way with a cozy and casual outfit?!

JCrew Baubles

As I’ve said time and time again, the J.Crew Minnie Pant are my new obsession.  They are super comfortable and I love that they can transition in and out of the office.

I also got turned back onto Old Navy as of late and really love their soft tees and fun sweatshirts.  I have a few of their graphic ones, but am loving this jeweled one (which I scored for $10!!!).

Paired with some relaxed sneakers and off I go!
