Black and White Style

Tuesday, March 3, 2015

It's official! Christina from PoshPair is back as co-host of our weekly Life and Style Linkup! For her first week back, we decided on the ultra classic theme of Black and White. Check out her full post here.

I was lucky enough to shoot today's post between rainstorms this weekend, and we ended up getting a few pics before the downpour. If you live in the LA area, you know it made for a stunning sunset Sunday night. So beautiful!

This week, I chose one of my coziest cotton dresses with an intricate black lace detail at the hem. Paired with a black blazer, a loose ponytail, and some simple stud earrings I tried to keep a balance of laid back and dressy.

The bright pink heels and matching bright pink purse add in my always needed girlie touch, and really pop against these basics.

Rainy Day Style

Tuesday, February 24, 2015

Rain, rain, go away...come again another day! Just kidding, check out that luscious green grass!! California is without a doubt in need of some rainfall, but did it have to happen on the weekend? From sunny skies last week, I'm just glad it didn't happen over Valentine's Day.

You might think I'm crazy for wearing heels when it's raining, but I absolutely hate when my pants are soaked from the puddles on the sidewalk. Solution: folded cuffs and heels. As long as I have my hubby's arm to use as balance, I can avoid any embarrassing wipe-outs. ;)

For my hair, I usually "scrunch" it to get a more relaxed, wavy look. This way the rain won't ruin any curls or flat-ironed locks. Otherwise, I'll just throw it up in a messy bun.

What do you think about the rain? Love it or hate it?!

Life and Style Linkup: Vacation Style

Tuesday, February 17, 2015

This week's linkup theme is 'Vacation Style' in an attempt to cheer up all of you East coasters getting pounded with snow. Whether your planning a vacation, looking back on your favorite vacation, or just getting inspired for summer, show me your Vacay Style with this week's Life and Style Linkup.

This past weekend, Chris and I were fortunate to actually go on a vacation to celebrate our birthdays this month, and of course Valentine's Day as well. The resort was beyond beautiful, and although we were only 20 miles from our house, we felt like we had transported to the tropics!

Here are a few pictures from our trip, enjoy!

How cute is this week's featured blogger?! Her tutu is adorable, and so perfect for Valentine's Day!

Valentine's Day Style

Wednesday, February 11, 2015

With Valentine's Day just around the corner, it's time to style up your most romantic Date Night outfit! This year, I was looking for something with just the right amount of flirty and sophisticated. Once again, Lulu's delivered, with this adorable peach little number! The high neckline is ultra classy, with fun details in the ruffled hemline, and extra low cut outs at the side.

Using the light peach dress as my neutral, I was able to add in my Valentines Day signature red with this gorgeous Marc Jacobs clutch and those vibrant floral shoes. These Steve Madden pumps have the illusion of hand painted florals, which is a great statement piece to spice up your Valentine's Day ensemble.

Chris and I have a few dinner date's lined up at a beautiful resort, and you can bet this outfit is already packed and ready to go!

Life and Style Linkup: Leggings

Wednesday, February 4, 2015

Happy Wednesday!! Today's Life and Style Linkup theme is Leggings! Whether you're headed to the gym or heading to work, who doesn't love this comfy on-the-go trend?

These SpaceDye Leggings from Beyond Yoga are the most comfortable pants I have undoubtedly ever worn. If I could wear them everyday I totally would. (It is almost to that point as it is...) They are perfect for the airport, running errands, or a night out if you pair them with the right top.

I'm excited to see how you all style your leggings! Bonus points for a fun yoga pose! :)

Life and Style LInkup: Winter Free For All

Wednesday, January 14, 2015

You can't win them all! No matter how hard I try, these photos will not upload correctly! But after two weeks, life must go here they are! This week's Life and Style Linkup theme is a Winter Free For All, showcasing some of your favorite warm weather style. Hopefully you don't have the same uploading issues as I did for this linkup!

You can't miss the fact that my fuzzy white sweater is not only warm and cozy, but looks a bit like an abominable snowman. It doesn't get much more winter than that! Paired with my braided headband, a high-waisted midi skirt, and my new amazingly comfortable black booties, I am ready for a few more weeks of (California) winter.

Crystals, Leather, and Tulle

Thursday, January 8, 2015

I think it's safe to say that today's post is by far one of my absolute favorite style posts! Diamonds, tulle, and's almost too much to handle in one outfit! 

These amazingly gorgeous crystal covered shoes are what started it all! My new favorite pair of shoes (how could they not be?!), I was so excited to style them into the perfect outfit. You might recognize the silhouette of these beauties from a few posts back. And if you do, I am incredibly impressed ;) . That's because Joseph from Redo My Shoe specializes in reviving luxury shoes by straussing them with genuine Swarovski crystals. 

I could gush on and on about how much I love these shoes. Pictures don't even do them justice. The attention to detail is immaculate, leaving not one spec of shoe uncovered. These are without a doubt the fanciest item in my closet. But what girl isn't head over heals for anything with this much sparkle?! 

First came the crystals, then came the tulle. With such gorgeous shoes, I knew the skirt had to be top of line. When I came across BlissTulle, I knew right away I had found it's perfect compliment. The quality of fabric and construction is what really puts these skirts high above the rest. Chic, modern, and adorable on every level, they instantly take any occasion to the next level. With multiple styles and colors to choose from, you are sure to find the perfect tulle skirt for your birthday, bachelorette party, or any random day of the week! Because who doesn't have a great day wearing a gorgeous tulle skirt?!

Last but certainly not least is my favorite handbag company, Gigi New York. As I started compiling my outfit, I knew their leather cross-body purses would be the perfect finishing touch. This navy blue plays off the light blue in the ombre shoes, rounding out the whole outfit.

I love every detail of this outfit, I wish I could wear it everyday!! Which part is your favorite?!

Thank you all for your comments and encouraging words!!
Your support means the world to me, I love hearing from you!
