To say I’m in love with Marc Broussard would be a gross understatement. I’ve been attending his Southern California concerts religiously since I saw him open for Gavin DeGraw back in the day. His Louisiana swagger and rusty voice makes me weak in the knees! I was so happy to hear some of his oldie-but-goodies for a little trip down memory lane. The location at the Birch Aquarium was outstanding! Simply the most beautiful location that I’ve ever attended a concert. Just the view alone makes me want to go to the rest of the Green Flash Concert Series.
On my days off work, I love hanging with my flowers in my little garden. Since I’m just renting and want to take my flowers with me when it’s time to go, it has turned into my little potted piece of paradise. I’ve been getting lots of bug visitors lately though. Viva spider season! I saw this green one catch a fly and a bee out of mid air! Freaky much? Um, Yes!
Here’s a little sampling of some of the flowers I’m growing currently.
Recently, I went to see my new hair artist (because that’s the only way to describe her hair cutting skills) Candice from Goldline Salon in South Park, San Diego. I wanted to mix things up but not go toooooo awfully crazy. I’m ecstatic with the results! It frames my face exactly the way I was hoping! I think my hair is now a perfect accessory for my summer look.
High waisted flowy shorts are a perfect piece for any summer style (also worn before as a transitional piece). Of course, I love to have some sort of sassy accessory, done here with a fun little toucan purse. My favorite part about it is that its beak is the handle! How hilarious is that?! You just can’t help but get comments about it!
Fashion is so much more than just clothes. It’s accessories, handbags, shoes, and even luggage. That’s what I had the pleasure of experiencing at the first Fashion Week San Diego Viva la V series featuring Stefan McKellar at the La Valencia Hotel in La Jolla. His luxury luggage is so wonderfully full of detail that it is a perfect blend of the past and present. It evokes memories of vintage train cases while remaining very of-the-moment. It’s classy tough girl chic at it’s ultimate finest. This is the type of luggage that is not to be checked but carried with pride through the airport to your next adventure.
I am so very much looking forward to seeing more at Fashion Week San Diego this year (Sept. 29th-Oct. 5th 2014). Purchase your tickets to the show now! See you there!
My look to this day time fashion event was a simple and classic sleeveless sweater dress by Kate Spade. I love dresses you can either dress up or down depending on the event. Expect to see this one a lot over the holidays when I’m dashing from party to party!
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.
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.

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!
