Polka Dot Party

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?

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Recently, I talked about how 90's fashion is making a huge come back in the fashion industry and I couldn't be happier. Suits should be a staple in everyone's closet - men and women! Why? Because there's something about a great suit that can make a woman feel confident, sexy and powerful, which are all the essential things to make you feel like a complete #girlboss. I definitely recommend finding a suit that suits your style (see what I did there!?) Even if your job doesn't require you to wear a one, go and find a suit that makes you feel like a bad ass! Especially because I am a firm believer in dressing for the job/career/position you want - not the one you have. If you want the big fancy title and the corner office, look the part.  

You all know how much I love pink, so this pink suit was practically screaming my name as soon as I saw it. I loved that it hugged my curves in all the right places and it didn't make me look boxy. The open slits on the side of the pants really modernized the overall look and made it a bit more unique. I decided to pair it with a bell sleeve top, a black baker boy hat, a pair of houndstooth pumps and my classic Chanel purse. I loved how this outfit turned out, because it looked feminine and classy yet powerful - perfect for a busy day of meetings.

Are you into the suit trend right now? What are some of your fave styles?

City Stripes

I never thought that I would be able to say comfortable, stylish and premium leather in the same sentence, but my ECCO flats and little red crossbody bag were a total game changer! I wanted a look that would be perfect for strolling around the streets of Downtown LA, pretending to be a tourist, on a warm spring afternoon and as much as I love stilettos, I knew they weren't the right call. Never wanting to sacrifice fashion for function, I opted for a pair of silver pointed-toed flats by ECCO. Their shoes are crafted from fine Italian leather making them a wardrobe staple that is guaranteed to stand the test of time. I paired my flats with my red ECCO crossbody (in an equally supple, delicious, Italian leather) a denim midi skirt, a striped sweater and a feminine neck scarf for a Paris-meets-Los Angeles inspired look. Of course, any time that I'm buying new shoes or accessories, Zappos is my go-to because of their fast, free shipping and hassle free returns. Everyone knows that waiting for your new shoes to arrive in the mail is definitely the worst part of online shopping, so why not get them faster with Zappos? I know, such a no-brainer!

What's you go-to outfit when you're looking for something stylish and comfortable?

Jaquard Coat

Spring is here but our weather has been somewhat unpredictable! Usually, LA has easy breezy weather during the Spring, but lately it's been so windy, cold and grey. As much as I would love to curl up on the couch with a blanket and a side of hot cocoa I can't. So, on days where the weather's cold and gloomy, I like to add a pop of clor, like this jacquard coat! I'm completely obsessed with it. It's colorful, elegant, and effortlessly chic. I especially love that it has a metallic hue so when the sun hits it it sparkles a bit. 

I've found myself wearing this coat out more often than I'd like to admit, but trust me, it's hard not to. On days where I have meetings back-to-back or errands to run, I like to be comfortable yet put together (unfortunately, sweatpants aren't going to cut it). When I have hectic days like these, I always make sure to wear something casual, but still add a bit of glamour here and there. For this look, I decided to go back to the basics with some skinny jeans and a white satin top. I love the way gold contrasts with blue, so I went for these gorgeous bauble drop earrings, my suede booties and a glamorous gold purse. I'm obsessed with how well everything paired together without being too matchy matchy.

What clothing item are you obsessed with at the moment?
