Professional with a Twist

Jeans: Forever 21 // Top & Blazer: Target // Shoes: Asos // Flower Pin: H&M // Watch: Michael Kors

Hi friends! It most definitely has been a whirl wind of a week traveling, and I just want to thank you all for baring with me when I go off on these week long hiatus' from blogging. As much as I always say I will make time, between the jet lag, and back to back work events, it never seems to happen. So again, I am sorry and I appreciate you all understanding and coming back! :-)

Here's my take on a professional look... with a twist of course!. I am pretty obsessed with this peplum top and paired with the bright blazer and cap-toe pumps makes for an easy breezy week day look. Also, I have been trying my hand on the center part with my hair. I kind of like it for summer because it gives off that more beachy laid back look--what do you guys think of the center part?

Lastly, myself and nine other ladies gave our fashion blogging tips over on my dear friend, Mollie's blog- go check it out!

Neons, Stripes, & Sequins

Jeans and Necklace: Poshmark // Tee: Old Navy // Blazer: Target // Bracelet: HRH Collection // Earrings: Ann Taylor // Shoes: Prabal Gurung for Target // Sunglasses: Ray-Ban

While in LA last week, I didn't get to do much shopping due to my luggage practically exceeding the 50 pound limit on the first leg of the trip- yes I am that much of an over packer. But my sister and I did get to quickly pop into Old Navy while having lunch at the 3rd Street Promenade in Santa Monica, and I must say Old Navy, is doin' it well. I easily could have scooped up multiple pairs of bright and printed jeans, pretty dresses, and t-shirts galore, but I managed to keep things to a minimum and went with this striped, sequin, neon tee-love love. I can see this being styled so many different ways for the warmer months to come!

Happy Thursday!

Which AG look did I pick? 

As my Los Angeles trip came and went over a week ago, I finally wanted to share a some highlights from the LuckyFABB conference held at the SLS Beverly Hills! 

1. Speakers & Panels: There is so much valuable information to pick up from a blogger and brand perspective, so getting to hear what people like Drew Barrymore, Kelly Osbourne, and Emily Schuman speak- is so priceless! Common thread throughout all speakers- Being true to yourself, and finding your voice! 
2. Networking: While I love hearing the speakers at these conferences, I think my favorite part is getting to see my blogging bffs, and meeting my social media pals in real life. I am so lucky to be apart of such an inspirational group of strong women and putting us all in a room together is not only fun, but empowering! 
3. Brand experiences: In between panels, brands like Tacori, AG Jeans, and JustFab invited guests to learn more about their brand, enter in fun contests, etc. And while I never win anything...like ever-I actually won an Instagram contest from AG and got to select one of three, head-to-toe looks from them--can you guess which look I picked? (photo above)

Some other highlights of the trip were getting to meet Betsey Johnson on more than one occasion, having a fun happy hour with some amazing Poshmarker's, and overall getting inspired to stay true to my voice and to who I am-holler!

Safari Chic

 Pants: Target // Shirt: Nordstrom // Shoes: Charlotte Russe // Jacket: American Rag // Bag: Alexander Wang via Poshmark 

I know, I know, where are the springy colors in this look? While I definitely missed having at least one pop of color, I really liked how this outfit came together. I do have to mention though, that I wore this to the orthodontists office to get my Invisalign removed, and I definitely got a few stares--I guess they don't see fashion bloggers everyday. 

Also, I want to start sharing outtakes again with you because some are just too funny. Starting with this one where I almost got blown away by the wind--reminding me of the famous (or infamous?) words of an Atlanta housewife, I'm feeling "Gone with the wind, fabulous". Yeah, I said it. 

I'll be posting a LuckyFABB recap soon too, so stay tuned!  Happy Hump day!

Spring on the Mind

Skirt and Earrings: Target // Shoes: Prabal Gurung for Target // Chambray top: TJ Maxx // Bag: Alexander Wang via Poshmark // Bangles: Forever 21 & Blue Vanilla // Lipstick: Wet n Wild // Ring: Gorjana

Dear Mr. Sunshine, 

I am anxiously awaiting your steady warmth so I can wear skirts, dresses and shorts without any tights like I did in this outfit. My wardrobe is just full of bright colors, and prints that want to come out and play with you. And I'm sorry, but Mr. Rain...he's just not my type, I get more of the friend vibe.
 Loving and missing you always.

 Your favorite California gal, 


P to the S! Hopefully this love letter is answered, as I leave for LA tomorrow! I'll be at the LuckyFABB conference, so if you are going please let me know!
