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.

Green Flash Concert Series – Marc Broussard

DSCN0143 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.  DSCN0199DSCN0203DSCN0191DSCN0184DSCN0224stilettos

#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

Up In The Air

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.

#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.

Salon on 30th Hair Show

DSC_0322

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!

How to Wear a Statement Necklace

DSC_0239One thing I love about summer is it really motivates me to get out and explore my own city.  It’s silly how often we just go to the places we know and love without checking out what else is available!  One weekend a bit ago, we went for a nice drive around the Ocean Beach, Pacific Beach, and Bird Rock area.  We so wanted to go to Belmont Park but gave up after driving around a few square blocks for a half hour and unsuccessfully finding parking.  It was one of the first weekends of summer so I guess I can’t be too annoyed.

We ended up in the gorgeous Bird Rock area for brunch and a little beach exploring.  These photos were taken along the cliffs just between Bird Rock and La Jolla.  It’s definitely a great place to pack a picnic and chill to the sound of the waves.

I wore this amazing statement necklace that Tyler brought home for me after a trip with his family.  He picked it out all by himself!  Aren’t you impressed?!  I sure am.  It’s so perfectly me!  I don’t believe you have to wear statement necklaces against boring neutral palettes so I picked out a shirt that was full of similar colors instead.
