Lunch at Balboa Park

Balboa Park

My mom came down to visit me in San Diego so we decided to spend an afternoon at Balboa Park.  It was an amazingly gorgeous day spent wandering around the botanical gardens and lunching at El Prado.  Check out some of these beautiful photos taken by my beautiful mommy.

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!

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.
