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: 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: Plaid and Perfume

DSC_0037

Normally I’m the most girly of all girly girls but sometimes I just need a comfy top and denim type of day.  Scored this ridiculously soft Bella Dahl top at the Bloomingdale’s friends and family sale.  It’s so soft it’s like daytime appropriate pajamas!  The high side slit gives it a little more of a sexy vibe than its “I borrowed this from my boyfriend” counterparts.  If you aren’t being ironic by pairing your plaid shirt with a fluffy skirt or sparkles than distressed denim is just an easy “Do”.

This perfume bottle purse is just too fun for words.  We spotted this gem walking home from dinner one night and I had to go back and get it the next morning!  It was at one of my favorite vintage and novelty shops in San Diego called Bad Madge.  It’s a fantastic destination for unique gifts and really really cool vintage pieces.

Coronado Beach Day Look

DSCN0245Sometimes a day of relaxing on the beach with the girls is the best R & R you could ask for.  I got a really annoying sunburn a month or so ago and now I’m hyper about making sure I’m protected from the sun.  I want my super pale skin looking as young as possible for as long as possible!  Other than caking on tubes of sunscreen, I wore a UPF 50+ hat and a long maxi dress topped with a luxuriously soft white Equipment blouse.  Take that, Sunshine!

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

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!

Happy 4th of July, Lovlies!!

Right now, I’m writing this post on a ferry to Seattle to catch a late night flight home.  I’m always surprised when and where I can upload posts to my blog and all it makes me want to do is travel more.  I honestly don’t think that’s a bug that can be fixed!  I do feel better knowing we’re heading to Fiji and Australia soon but still!  Here’s to a happy, fun, and safe 4th of July to all my lovely followers!
