The girly girl in me quickly rejoiced when I put on this polka dotted top, ESPECIALLY, when I paired it with these white bell bottom pants. It was love at first sight! I love wearing pink, but lately, I've been on a bit of a purple kick. Not only does the color remind me of my fave flower (bougainvillea, obviously) but it's a color that makes me feel like a powerful woman. Seriously! Do you ever put something on and instantly feel like a powerful and bold woman? I know I do! This outfit is definitely one of my favorites, because I also feel like it's a great alternative for your typical business attire. It's business with a little twist.

I definitely wanted to keep this look clean and simple, so I went for these white pants. Let me just say, that bell bottoms are never going to go out of style. I swear, they're my favorite pants to wear at the moment, especially with sunny LA weather. They're easy, breezy, and effortlessly chic. I didn't want to take away from my color scheme, so I paired this outfit with a gorgeous pair of suede purple pumps and a white floral clutch. 

What color makes you feel bold? I'd love to know!

As always, thanks so much for stopping by!

Feeling Royal

Is it just me or is it hard to focus on anything but the royal wedding lately? I know it's one of those things that people are either totally obsessed with or don't follow at all, but I happen to be one of those people who are on the edge of their seat in anticipation for the big day! I buy all of the tabloid fodder pertaining to royal couple and I'm DYING to see what the future princess (probably not her actual title) will wear. To think that this American girl is going to be a PRINCESS is just the coolest thing, no? Since I'm a super fan, I had to style Icing Store's "royal engagement" inspired ring. In doing so, I thought about what I would wear on the days leading up to my own wedding, which is just a few months away and this little white dress was the first thing that came to mind. It's conservative - yet sexy, feminine, yet bold and has unique high-fashion details. Being a bride isn't always an easy task, I mean the wedding invitations alone took up about a month of my life that I'll never get back, (maybe a slight exaggeration) but shopping for bridal jewelry for you and your bridesmaids certainly is at Icing Stores. Stop by one of their stores to stock up on all of you favorite pieces for wedding season and if you're as excited as I am for the royal wedding grab their "royal engagement" ring and be GLUED to your TV screen on May 19th - I know I will be!

It sounds like a cliché, but I'm a sucker for long walks along the beach at sunset. Especially if it means I can wear a glamorous floral dress. I love wearing maxi dresses during the spring, because they're perfect for sunny days and breezy nights (just add a denim jacket!). I fell head over heels for this little number because it's pink, hugs my body in all the right places, has a fabulous cut out back and it's so feminine! I couldn't help but pair this dress with a cute woven bag, I've been obsessed with bags like these, they remind me of little picnic baskets and they're totally on trend right now. They're so versatile and go with just about everything. I paired this outfit with cute nude sandals and a pair of gold hoops. 
I'm also a huge fan of little white dresses, like the one that my blogger babe, Sydne, is wearing! Lulus has a huge selection of white dresses and I swear I want to buy Every. Single. One. 

As much as I love maxi dresses, I'm also a fan of mini dresses with lots of lace. For night outs with my fiancé, or if I have a summer wedding to attend, I love wearing something that will hug my curves and make a statement. This  blue lace dress did just that! I swear the lace pattern on this dress is even more gorgeous in person, I'm obsessed and already can't wait to wear it again. I definitely wanted this dress to be the center of attention, so I added a few simple sparkles to keep the focus on it. 

When it comes to any type of occasion, Lulus has it all! If you're looking for a dress to take on vacation, a gorgeous prom dress for that special day, or for a formal dinner you're going to, check out Lulus! 
They do a phenomenal job at keeping up with all the new trends and this spring they're all about floral, color, and maxi dresses - all of my favorite things.

What are some of your favorite spring and summer trends?

When I want to feel a little more easy breezy in the spring and summer, I can't help but to pick out a long, sheer dress. For sunny days, nothing feels better on the skin than the touch of something silky and lightweight. I've been a fan of dresses like these for as long as I can remember. They're absolutely perfect for sunny days, pair them with a cute pair of flats and you're ready to get started with your day. For this look, I didn't want to take any attention from the dress, because the print is gorgeous. However, I did match my lipstick with the pink flowers and I loved how my look turned out! I also added this chic forest green bag and some minimal earrings that I've been obsessed with.

What are your favorite dresses to wear in the spring?

Polka Dot Party

Dress: Chi Chi London via ASOS, Hat: Dynamic Asia (similar), Bag: Doris Dorethea, Shoes: Jessica Bedard

Hot spring days always call for a nice straw hat and a cute polka dot dress that makes a girl want to twirl around all day! The girly girl in me was thrilled to wear this polka dotted dress this past weekend. The weather was easy breezy and I knew it was the perfect day to wear this for a quick stroll around the park. 

I’ve always been obsessed with prints like polka dots, because they never go out of style. It’s a print that has been around for ages and there’s always a different type of style that suits each and every single personality. I, for one, LOVE huge polka dots, because they’re girly, feminine, and bold. All of my favorite things! I especially loved that this was a heart shaped dress, for sunny days in the spring, it’s always nice to show a little bit of skin and get a golden glow from the sun. 

Since I was going to be walking around the park with my fiancé, I opted for a comfy pair of baby blue loafers and my chic handbag. I loved how this look turned out, a perfect outfit for a perfect day!

Are you into polka dots as much as I am?
