Monday Madness

Happy Monday babes! If you’re a frequent on Pinterest then I am sure you have seen the e-card that reads: “We may feel dressed up, but secretly every woman knows maxi skirts are really just crotchless yoga pants.” This could not be more accurate; whenever I am feeling lazy, but know that I really should look like I put in at least some effort, I go for my maxi skirts. Luckily, retailers like Pink…

Crocodile Sunset

You guys, I can’t tell you how much I LOVE Forever 21. Seriously though, this entireoutfit is from there! And in my opinion, you would never guess. The trick to making inexpensive pieces look timeless is searching for the hidden gems that support the statement “less is more.” These shorts are so simple – just black and white with an awesome print – and this shirt is literally one of the most…

Citrus & Skirts

I have a recent obsession with neon colors, so you can imagine how fond of this outfit I am. The bright top is such a fun twist on the usual business outfit. Also, how perfect is this Forever 21 necklace? It’s definitely one of those pieces that looks more expensive than it is…which is my favorite!

Also…today is the LAST day to enter into the Anthro gift card giveaway! Go to this postto enter!…

In My Corner

If you don’t follow me on Instagram, then chances are you have no idea that the next chapter in my story is leading me up to Los Angeles to take the next step in my career in the fashion industry. I am so excited for this leap of faith, and I truly believe that I am making a hardbut correct step in the right direction. Seeing as this is the last weekend I will be considered a San Diego resident,…

Anthropologie Giveaway

Happy Friday, loves!!

We’ve all had that moment when we walk through Anthropologie’s beautifully adorned doors, get hit with that invigorating Volcano candle smell, and see that one piece that we CANNOT live without. Fast forward through the falling-in-love stage we go through in the dressing room, and you end up at the part where you painfully glance at the tag and realize it’s well into the “if…

Tulle-ing like Carrie

It’s probably no surprise that one of my style icons is one of the women credited to revolutionizing what’s considered “normal” everyday attire. The forever coveted Carrie Bradshaw (or the widely admired, less fictional, SJP; whichever you prefer). She will forever be known as the sassy single lady painting the streets of NYC with glitter and glam, breaking the hearts of many, and rocking…

Perfect Persimmon

I’ve been known to put pink + red together on occasion (here & here), but I must say, this is by far my favorite rendition to date. I’ve had a recent fixation to midi skirts as of late; particularly really bright ones, like this one. They say that fashion repeats itself, and it is evident that the skirt pendulum is rapidly moving towards things of the past. Midi skirts are sweeping hemlines…

Skorts & Stripes

If you happened to be blogger-obsessed last summer, or just happened to hit the mall once or twice, then you saw when the widely-adopted Zara Skort (& modified versions) hit blogs, and racks, everywhere. I myself indulged in this trend, and originally demonstrated my appreciation for this piece in a blog post, here.

Fast forward to this summer; the skort is a trend that has not showed any signs…

Rompin’ Around

Rompin’ Around

With the summer temperatures heating up, it’s hard to wear anything but a bathing suit around the house. Since life usually requires we leave the house more often than we prefer to on our lazy, hot days…summer staples that are effortless + weightless become a necessity. Queue: Palm Print Romper from Blush Boutique. Um, hello?!?! Cutest, sassiest, {lightweight} romper I’ve ever owned. Not only are…

Grey’s Autonomy + {Discount Code}

Grey’s Autonomy + {Discount Code}

I have always been a fan of challenging what’s socially acceptable in terms of fashion. My philosophy has always been, “the more nervous I am to wear it in public, the more sure I am that it’s a good idea.” This outfit redefines every outfit I’ve ever left the house in (even those gauchos in 8th grade). What’s even better, is that aside from the brilliant, slightly obnoxious green skirt, this…

Shoelery: {Clip & Adorn} + Giveaway

Shoelery: {Clip & Adorn} + Giveaway

I’ve recently come to terms with the fact that I am a shoe addict, in its truest form. If I see a pair of shoes I love, 99% of the time I purchase them; that leftover 1% of the time consists of me using my “best judgement” to save the money…then purchasing them online when payday comes. (In my defense, I bargain-hunt my socks off until I find the best deal possible; I also stick to my coveted…

Newport Beach Tunic + White Plum Giveaway {2}

Newport Beach Tunic + White Plum Giveaway {2}

Tunics are a tough style to master; if you’re like me (short-ish), then they’re somewhere between almost-long-enough to be a dress (if you don’t move your arms at all), but not-quite-short-enough to look cute as a tunic (#ShortGirlProblems anyone?). All issues aside, I knew I had to have this Newport Beach Tunic when I saw it on White Plum‘s website. Partly because Newport Beach is probably among…
