Great accessories can elevate any outfit instantly. So you can imagine my excitement when I found out that Kendra Scott, one of my favorite jewelry brands, was opening a store in Manhattan Beach. But not just any store, they opened a beautifully decorated accessories boutique that was perfect for an afternoon photoshoot. Jonny and I were in awe of how much natural light the store had and were amazed by the stunning photography (from their recent campaign) that adorned the walls. Whether you're looking for dainty charms or bold statement jewelry, Kendra Scott really delivers pieces that you'll want to wear time and time again. In fact, the day after this shoot, I styled the bracelets and these fabulous earrings in a completely different look. If you find yourself in the South Bay I would highly recommend popping into their shop at The Point for a visit. 

Happy for Friday! Thanks for stopping by!

Gingham In The Marina

Happy Tuesday! 
I loved sailing and strolling around the Marina so much that I think one day, I need to own a boat. The water really calms me and makes me feel at peace and I loved seeing all of the colorful buildings surrounding the dock. I styled a nautical look complete with a bell sleeve top and high-waisted white shorts. Of course, a little hat is always the perfect accessory for sunny summer days, so I went with this cute "boater style", definitely appropriate for the occasion. 

Thanks so much for visiting me!

Sweet Escape

Dress: London Times, Shoes: Shoemint (smilar Styles), Bag: Trina Turk, Earrings: H&M, Bracelets: Forever 21

 Happy Monday! 
There are few things that make me smile more than ladylike dresses, being by the water and fresh flowers, so when I get to enjoy all of those things in one day I'm over the moon. I guess this was just one of those weekends where everything went according to plan. This little London Times dress was perfect for taking in the stunning views of Palos Verdes and the sweet girls at Tangles Salon gave me a crown braid fit for a princess. If you've never been to Palos Verdes I would highly recommend taking a day trip there. You can have brunch at Terranea Resort, explore Abalone Cove, and go for a swim in the ocean. It's always one of my favorite places to sneak off for a staycation. 

I hope you had a great weekend!

You guys know how much I love matching sets so this little yellow two piece was total no brainer. I paired it with striped pumps, (because I LOVE print mixing) a chic fedora, and the perfect little cross body bag. If you're as obsessed with Sole Society as I am then you don't want to miss their event that I'm hosting this Saturday, 4/23 at Santa Monica Place Mall from 1-4! They will be giving out sweet treats from Tutti Frutti, 15% off all shoes and accessories and complimentary mani's with any purchase over $70! Grab your girlfriends and come join me for a fun afternoon of shopping and girl talk. I hope to see you there!

Vertical Dressing

Happy Monday loves! 
I was obsessed with these pants from the moment that I saw them on the Ann Taylor site. The vertical stripes made me feel so tall and since I'm 5ft. 4in., looking taller is always a good thing. I made my outfit a bit more feminine by adding in a ruffled crop top and a ladylike pink bag. I hope you had a great weekend!

Sporty Chic

Sweatshirt: Gap Factory, Jeans: One Teaspoon, Shirt: Heavenly Couture, Necklace: Forever 21, Rings: Kendra Scott, Watch: Michael Kors, Shoes: Charlotte Russe (similar) Look 2- Sweatshirt: Gap Factory, Jeans: Wet Seal, Shirt: Gap (similar), Shoes: Love Culture (similar), Bag: Henri Bendel (similar)

It's rare when style and comfort merge seamlessly into one look. But in today's post, I'm sharing two easy ways to do just that. I've partnered with Gap Factory to share how I incorporate comfy wardrobe staples like hoodies and sweatshirts into my everyday looks. Sure, wearing a hoodie out in public sounds like something you would only do on the way to the gym, but it doesn't have to be that way. I paired my striped sweater with distressed denim, strappy sandals and bold red lipstick for a look that was casual yet glamorous. Okay, maybe you're more of the preppy type, just layer a button down under your favorite pullover for a look that is chic and warm. Whether you're heading to brunch with girlfriends, or over to the mall for some shopping, these sporty-chic looks would be perfect for the occasion. 

Which outfit is more your style? 

Thanks so much for reading!
