LookBook: Crop Top on Repeat

c44This crop top is the perfect length for me.  I’m not all fit and toned in the abs area so I don’t want to show more then a little peek of my tummy.  So I needed something that basically hit right at where all my high waisted skirts and such would hit.  Bingo!  I did get a super awesome tip recently (but too late for this find) from one of my stylist buddies to look for Tall crop tops.  So that way you’re getting the extra length without the extra width.  Genius!

LookBook: The Blue Platform

c24Sometimes a shoe comes into your life and sweeps you away.  We had actually used these babies recently in a Nordstrom Fashion Show I worked and I couldn’t leave without them.  They’re definitely a show stopper!  Not to mention platforms are so in right now.  This skirt is actually shorts with heavy pleating on the front to give the illusion of a skirt.  I would never be comfortable in an actual skirt that short!  One gust of wind and you guys would all be getting a show!  No, Thank You!

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: 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!!

Nordstrom Designer Preview

IMG_20150319_192106243OMG.  The Nordstrom Designer Preview is my absolute favorite show I get to help put on every year.  Who wouldn’t want to touch all these beautiful art-like pieces of designer clothing… and get paid for it?!  Even more so, it’s inspiration for my real life looks for the coming season.  Here are my favorite outfits from the event.  P.S. – My birthday is coming up if anyone is looking for ideas. *wink wink*
