#OOTD: My New ‘Do

DSCN0130Recently, 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!DSCN0126DSCN0134DSCN0120DSCN0127DSCN0124DSCN0131

#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.

Date Night Look

DSC_0062

I’m just going to be super honest here.  I’m a girly girl and I believe in girly looks for date night.  Skirts, heels, color, sparkles, etcetera are all things I gravitate toward.  It also must show off my girlish curves.  That’s why I added the belt to accentuate my waist.  The silk tank from my last look was the perfect piece to remix for this occasion.  Who doesn’t love the feel of silk on their skin?!  The moto jacket does help to even out all of this girly-ness by adding a little edge.  I mean, even a girly girl doesn’t want to turn out looking too innocent.  It’s date night after all!  Make sure to add a dash of sass.

3 DAY REMIX ROUNDUP

Blue Skies, White Pants

DSC_0055White pants always make me feel like I’m on vacation.  It’s what I’d wear if I were walking along some beach town, soaking up the sun, and enjoying a beautiful new destination.  So when the sun shines and we’re heading toward the water, white pants always seem to be the perfect fit for the occasion.  Even if the occasion is just lunch!

This is Day 3 of my Take One, Pass it on challenge.  My remixed item for today is pink Dolce Vita pink snake print  sandals.  Check the bottom of this post to see the 3 day Remix Roundup.

#LOTD: Casual Faux Leather Skirt

DSC06281I got a great response last time I wore this skirt but this time I wanted to make it more casual.  It’s really a very versatile skirt now that I’ve started playing with it a little more!  To sort of tone down the fanciness of the previous look, I wore a super comfortable vintage Led Zeppelin concert tee and my favorite polka dot Kate Spade for Keds pumps.  I kept the jewelry a little bit more simple by just using delicate gold pieces.  The skirt is kind of loud on it’s on so it doesn’t really require much in the way of accessorizing.  The Stella and Bow Mean Girls collection makes me giggle inside every time I look at it.  And this bracelet is actually small enough for my super tiny wrists!  Double score!

Donut Kind of Day

DSC06064

After having a cold the past few days, I just wanted to be comfortable and have a little fun.  Nothing makes a day seem a little more playful than when you’re wearing donuts on your shoes and bag!  I mean, come on!  They’re colorful, silly, and topped with sprinkles!!  Happy days are mandatory when donuts are in the picture.  That’s why so many people like to eat them in the morning… I think.  Just kidding.  But really, when I saw these babies at the Kate Spade online surprise sale, I had to scoop them up.  They’re just too cute!  I’m a total sucker during those surprise sales though.  I’ve had to stop looking when they pop up on my social media feeds.  Definitely a little dangerous for the credit card bills…

I Just Want To Be Comfy

Striped ScarfSometimes your look is literally all about comfort… with a dash of fun of course!  That’s what I was feeling with today’s outfit.  It’s a totally casual look with Kate Spade doughnut flats and a Jennafer Grace striped scarf to add a little spice.  And it wouldn’t be me without a little color so I added my Chanel long sleeve shirt I was so generously gifted a while back.

I’m so loving the cool weather finally arriving in San Diego!  Although, I know a lot of you are experiencing actual real cold so this is nothing!  In a week we will be heading to Washington for Thanksgiving and I’m crossing my fingers for a bit of snow!
