Up In The Air

image

Man, I am so not a fan of flying.  I love travel, experiencing new places and cultures, and sampling my way through new foods but I just don’t like the act of travel.  So I distract myself by taking pictures, reading magazines, and catching up on shows like Game of Thrones and The Sopranos that I’ve downloaded.  These pics are from my last flight to Washington for a bit of crabbing and 4th of July festivities.

#MyVegasStyle: Pool Look

DSC_0059

I’ve had the pleasure of visiting Las Vegas many times throughout my life.  I’ve gotten to do the girls trips, the family trips, and the ultra romantic trips.  That’s the beauty of this desert destination.  There is truly something for everyone!  That’s why I felt totally qualified to do a few style postings about how I would style a trip to the Aria Las Vegas for the lovely people of Vegas.com.  This hotel is absolutely stunning and a premier Vegas destination, so how could I pass up something like that?

Of course, whenever I visit, I start my days at the pool so that’s where we will start my styling posts (even though I’m in San Diego for the pics).  To me, Vegas is all about glitz and glamour all day and all night.  So don’t be afraid to add some fun accessories!  Of course, you’ll need your beach bag for tons of sunscreen, magazines, and a bit of cash for a poolside beverage.  Go for some short shorts and nude sandals for a great leg lengthening effect.  Just be careful with your shoe choice.  Don’t be the girl at the pool at noon in stilettos.

Salon on 30th Hair Show

DSC_0322

Remember that super fun event I posted about forever ago?  It was so awesome!  I got to be a hair model for my stylist Beth Chambers at Salon on 30th.  She went with a kind of 60′s retro vibe so I wore my fun Kate Spade New York flowy shift dress to match the feel of my new ‘do.  I can never get my hair to curl quite like this on my own but it was perfect for a girl’s night out!

Crabbing in Washington

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAWho says a fashionista can’t fish?  It cracks me up every time to think I have a clamming and crabbing license in Washington.  It just doesn’t sound like something I would do and actually enjoy!  Dropping our 4 pots into the water on opening day was so exciting!  We were at a friend’s cabin watching them pull up their pots full of crab and dreaming of what we would catch in the following hours.  All in all we ended up with about 13 keeper crabs and 4 or 5 starfish that were fun to take pictures with but promptly returned to their ocean home.

While waiting for our pots to “soak”, we picked up some oysters off the beach and I got to learn to shuck them!  It’s easier then I thought it would be actually!  And super tasty!

Happy 4th of July, Lovlies!!

Right now, I’m writing this post on a ferry to Seattle to catch a late night flight home.  I’m always surprised when and where I can upload posts to my blog and all it makes me want to do is travel more.  I honestly don’t think that’s a bug that can be fixed!  I do feel better knowing we’re heading to Fiji and Australia soon but still!  Here’s to a happy, fun, and safe 4th of July to all my lovely followers!

How to Wear a Statement Necklace

DSC_0239One thing I love about summer is it really motivates me to get out and explore my own city.  It’s silly how often we just go to the places we know and love without checking out what else is available!  One weekend a bit ago, we went for a nice drive around the Ocean Beach, Pacific Beach, and Bird Rock area.  We so wanted to go to Belmont Park but gave up after driving around a few square blocks for a half hour and unsuccessfully finding parking.  It was one of the first weekends of summer so I guess I can’t be too annoyed.

We ended up in the gorgeous Bird Rock area for brunch and a little beach exploring.  These photos were taken along the cliffs just between Bird Rock and La Jolla.  It’s definitely a great place to pack a picnic and chill to the sound of the waves.

I wore this amazing statement necklace that Tyler brought home for me after a trip with his family.  He picked it out all by himself!  Aren’t you impressed?!  I sure am.  It’s so perfectly me!  I don’t believe you have to wear statement necklaces against boring neutral palettes so I picked out a shirt that was full of similar colors instead.

Chanel Fashion Show

image

Sometimes I just feel like the luckiest girl in the world.  I love all of my jobs and that is truly a special thing.  Recently, I helped backstage at a Chanel fashion show for Nordstrom.  It was so fun to see all these beautiful clothes up close and personal.  The detail is really astounding!

The theme of Chanel’s collection is Cowboys and Indians.  Think fringe, ponchos, and desert colors.  My favorite pieces were the knee high cap toe boots (one the right side model) and the star sweater.  The little sheriff buttons make me so giddy!!
