LookBook: Tutti Frutti

c12I’m not sure why but I love food shaped/printed clothing and accessories.  They just make me happy in the silliest way possible!  This watermelon clutch is no different.  It’s essentially the easiest conversation starter too!!  I originally thought pairing it with this raspberry print dress would be too much but… whatever!  Summers call for flowy silk dresses.  I love how light this dress feels!  It’s going to be an easy choice for the upcoming super hot San Diego days.  Gladiator sandals are really ‘in’ right now and I like the subtlety of these ones.  They’re kind of a pain in the buns to get in and out of since there is no zipper and I have to relace them every time.  Ah the things we do for fashion.

LookBook: Simplicity

chelshoot2-35Sometimes a little simplicity can go a long way.  Not every outfit needs to be full of color and patterns.  A simple look like this relies on the fit of the clothing to make it chic.  I also matched my bag to my shoes to make the look appear more intentional and not just grab-and-go.

LookBook: Seattle Shenanigans

DSCN2267We recently flew to Seattle to celebrate a very exciting graduation for my man’s sister.  She graduated from Commercial Dive school!  How crazy cool is that?!  For the big event, I went classic chic with a knee length skirt and sweater.  It was a little colder than I thought it would be so ended up wearing this faux leather jacket basically the whole day.  I got a gross bug bite on the side of my toe that was really bothered by my Charlotte Olympia kitty shoes I was planning to wear so I wore my sandals all day.  Even in the rain!  I guess I am a California girl so we can get away with things like that… *wink wink*

LookBook: The Bucket Hat

chelshoot2-19I love this hat so much.  It makes me feel like a modern Downton Abby character.  Now all I need is a snooty accent!  Just kidding.  With all that in mind, it just made so much sense that we would shoot this look at the trolly station.  We even had a photo bomb from a guy passing by!  Check my Facebook or Instagram for that pic.

LookBook: Coming Up Roses

chelsrose3Recently I had an interview for a very cool position.  I’m not going to jinx it by giving away any details just yet but cross your fingers for me!  The position is more on the creative side of things so I wanted to show my personally a bit but still be first interview professional.  Now I’m a very girly girl most of the time so this rose print pencil skirt fit the bill perfectly.  The peter pan collar makes the otherwise plain silk blouse much more interesting.  And the pointed toe basic black pump make this staple shoe modern.  I felt like I could take on the world!  Wish me luck!!

LookBook: Mini Road Trip

DSC_0068Sometimes one night away is all you need to hit the refresh button.  With Fashion Week San Diego’s Spring Showcase as our excuse, we set out on a mini road trip to Harrah’s Casino for the night.  Along the way, we stopped for a bit of wine tasting (my favorite thing!) and strolled along these beautiful orange groves.  The trees were blooming and the scent was divine!  The air smelled like warm honey and fresh squeezed orange juice so strong it was shocking.

2 Weddings, 2 Weeks, 2 Continents

Garden Party Formal

Ahhhh wedding season.  The time when every weekend is packed full of love and festivities.  Personally, I love going to weddings!  Everyone is so happy and dressed in their best.  Two sets of our close friends tied the knot over a 2 week period.  We started off with the first wedding in Los Angeles, then we headed on to Australia for the second (with a little personal vaca over in Fiji).  It  feels so good to be wandering again!  I’m super excited to share some photos of our adventures with you shortly!

This photo is from the first wedding at Calamigos Ranch in Malibu.  It was ‘Garden Party Formal’ so I wore a chic Kate Spade fit and flare dress in a fun bright color.
