#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.

Lust List Gift Guide: Teen Edition

The holidays are quickly approaching!  I know it seems early to be thinking about gifts but I like to shop early so I get better more thoughtful gifts without spending a fortune (i.e. – no last minute gift cards).  Each week I’m putting together a list of items for different people in our lives.  This week I’ll start with the teen ladies.  This girl is a budding fashionista with bold taste all her own.  Here are a few ideas she will love!

Teen Gift Guide

1) Diane von Furstenburg Animal Print Ear Buds – $25

2) A spa day for a teen facial.  Teaching good skin care techniques at a young age is important, especially for teens when acne can become an issue and they start wearing makeup.  A facial at your local spa is a fun way to spend time together and is a great unique gift!

My Look for a Hot Day

Outfit of the Day

 

I don’t know about where you guys are but here in San Diego it’s still hotter than Hades! Oh and the humidity is like one million percent!  So that being said, it’s a mini skirt and tank kind of day.  I still need to bring a jacket since everyone has the A/C blasting to arctic levels so a little jean jacket is the easiest thing to throw on and stay stylish.

Orange and blue is my favorite color combo so when I picked out this skirt this morning, it was a total no brainer for me to pair it with an orange tank.  I kept accessories in the same color family too with accents of gold.  I can’t wait for it to cool down though!  I’m ready for some fall fashion!

Stay cool and Stay classy!

How to Update Your Fall Wardrobe and NOT Break The Bank

There is a special place in my heart for Fall Fashion.  I love the colors, the cuts, layers, layers, and more layers!!  I just can’t get enough!  But that being said, I can’t buy every single piece every year or my credit card would burst into flames!  Here are my tips to bring some of the trends for this fall into your wardrobe without having to spend a fortune.

TRY A STATEMENT COAT:

Statement coats in bold prints, angular cuts, loud colors, and mixed fabrics are all over the runway for fall.  But a statement coat is just that… a statement.  And do you really want to shell out a lot of money to make the same statement for all of fall??  Not me!  I’ll be picking up some budget coats to stay on trend but when I’m done with that statement, I won’t have major buyer’s remorse.  Try some of these budget friendly options.

ADD SOME COBALT BLUE INTO THE MIX:

Cobalt is a hot hue this fall on everything from coats, to dresses, to shoes.  You don’t need to spend tons of money on this trend to be stylish.  Try adding just a couple of items for a pop of color to add to your current wardrobe.  Luckily, this color matches with so many other colors that are most likely already in your closet.  Try mixing it with orange, yellow, white, black, grey, or burgundy!

A LITTLE LEATHER, PLEASE!

This fall, leather comes in every shape and form.  Lucky for us, faux leather has come a long way and is surprisingly, well… leather-like!  Picking up some faux leather is a lot more budget friendly than the real alternative and a lot more animal friendly too!  Try a quilted variety for a great on trend look.

Perfume: The Ultimate Accessory

Jo Malone red Roses

“A woman’s perfume tells more about her than her handwriting.” – Christian Dior

I used to be the type of girl who didn’t like perfume.  It’s such a personal thing and  I never found one I could identify with.  My fear with perfume was that I’d choose one that people associated with someone else or that they didn’t like.  I used to know a girl in college who wore the same perfume as my grandma!  It was something that was really hard for me to get past!

My reservations with perfume melted away with my first test of Jo Malone’s Red Roses Cologne.  It actually smells like a gorgeous fresh bouquet of roses.  I have yet to meet anybody that doesn’t like the smell of roses!  Now I’ve become the girl that uses perfume as the ultimate accessory.  One spritz before walking out the door and my look is complete.

“A woman who doesn’t wear perfume has no future.” – Coco Chanel
