If there’s one item I could wear for the rest of the spring and summer season, it would be a wrap dress. They are so easy to wear, just throw one on and boom you’ve got an entire outfit. Not only that, but also they are forgiving and flattering for all body shapes and sizes. For festival season, I’ll give you all a spoiler of one of my outfits, it’s a wrap dress! (lol) I may or may not be wearing it over some shorts and a bralette… Either way, wrap dresses come in all different patterns and fabrics and they are a great option for a flattering spring look.
This past weekend, I had the most wonderful staycation at The Redondo Beach Hotel with my friend Jonilyn Brown of My Curated Closet. It was so incredible to actually explore the South Bay for a weekend! Since moving here, I haven’t been able to get out much and explore this area (most of my friends live in Santa Monica or on the East Side, so I drive over there every chance I get). We arrived on Friday night and stayed until Sunday morning, with a bunch of activities in between. Read on to see what we did!
A few weeks ago, I went to the Whimsy + Row launch party, to celebrate the launch of the new clothing line. Whimsy + Row is a local LA-based brand created by the wonderful Rachel Temko, who had a vision to create a lifestyle brand for creative, adventurous women who have an appreciation for vintage, sustainable, and exquisitely feminine pieces. I think the brand embodies just that. The new Eco Collection embodies the laid back California cool girl, with it’s sustainable fabrics and earth tones. I am personally IN LOVE with the new line and all that it stands for.
Festival season is here! I don’t know about you guys, but I am officially stoked this year. It is the first year ever that I will be headed to Coachella, for work and for the blog. I’ve been to other music fests, but not the biggest of the big. There’s a lot that goes into planning these festivities, especially what to wear. As a fashion blogger, my motto with festivals is to go big or go home. Some of my favorite festival looks last year were from bloggers who did just that: Late Afternoon, and We Wore What, two of my favs. As you can see, they were both on the practical side, however. There are definitely some things that need to be considered when choosing an outfit for a festival. Keep reading to find out what to wear to festivals!
Spring is a time of renewal. It is a time when you can reflect on your resolutions and goals from the beginning of the year and bring them back to life with a new sense of purpose. One of my goals in 2017 was to be more mindful in everyday life. I sometimes rush through my days since they are so jam-packed, but a huge part of this goal is to slow down and make the most of life and moments that matter, which can lead to greater happiness. One of the things I always seem to rush through is my makeup routine, using the same products every day to achieve the same exact look. How boring is that?! I never take the time to change up my routine and test new products. But with the start of spring, this seems like the ideal time to take a step closer to achieving this goal.
Spring is about 4 days away, but the weather in LA has got us feeling like it’s already here! I’m gearing up for long days filled with sunshine, flea markets, and beach time with a wardrobe and accessories to match. One of the most essential accessories for spring are sunglasses to protect your eyes from harsh sunlight. I’ve been looking for some really retro, big-framed statement sunglasses, and I found some great options at Zenni Optical. They have an amazing LA Collection of sunglasses complete with retro, old hollywood glam frames that I am drooling over. As you all well know by now, I love pairing different genres of style (50’s, 60’s, 70’s, 90’s) together to create a really modern look. I created three looks with Zenni’s LA Collection, below!
