Pretty in Pink: Wedding Season Fashion

Dress: Topshop *On sale!* // Shoes: Charles Jourdan // Earrings in PINK: Bauble Bar // Clutch in BLACK: Nordstrom (not pictured but cute to go with!)

‘Tis the season for weddings and there isn’t anything better than celebrating a forever love over a glass of bubbly. I had the most wonderful time celebrating a friend’s marriage in sunny Orange County, California. My dear friend has nothing short of great taste, so I knew it would be stunning. The venue was at the Monarch Beach Resort and if you ever have a chance to stay there, I would highly recommend. Ocean views and amazing hotel amenities? For those who are stuck in this chilly Spring gloom, I will leave it at that.

My favorite color has always been pink and I love that it is a popular color. I hopped around Nordstrom and luckily found most of my outfit in one place except my shoes from Nordstrom Rack (Nordies clearly has my heart…). I kept it simple finding a pair of tassel earrings I could wear with a messy up-do, and black heels to compliment the black bow in the back of my dress. The up-do was in part that I didn’t want to overheat in the sunshine and I wanted to show off the cute little bow. To top it all off, I was feeling fabulous with my lashes done by Amazing Lash Studio Chicago in Streeterville. I love this dress so much I might sport it for the Kentucky Derby with a black hat and black gloves… thoughts on it being cute or more so aspiring to be Audrey Hepburn? 😉

I hope you get to go to a wedding and celebrate love soon, too! ❤

XO.

4 Days Until Christmas: Finding The Perfect Christmas Outfit

White Christmas Outfit

Now I noticed after taking a second look at my closet, that I am partial to black, grey, and white and I need a little bit more of pa-zazz *insert jazz hands here* when it comes to my wardrobe color ensemble. Being home in California for the week, it is my new mission to get some bright colors to get me through this dreary winter as the  worst is yet to come. White and grey colors are always a great color though to wear for special occasions, and since I’ll be in California for Christmas, why not bring my own winter wonderland home with me?! I loved the Gossip Girl Blair Waldorf feel I got with the ruffles around the neckline of this sweater dress, and it’s still comfortable and classy. I wore black tights and my thigh high boots to give it a little more edge, and of course a headband for when I am outside and it is cold!

What color are you planning on wearing for Christmas?! I have recently become a huge fan of the dresses and sweaters at Chichwish.com and Forever 21 has so many simple V-neck sweaters in  different colors I want one of each! To me, the outfit above screams Blair Waldorf painting the town red on Christmas Day, and I low key love it. If weather permits and I won’t overheat, I am definitely going to show off this dress and be festive at minimum! Happy Holidays.

XO.

Wang Gang

One of my many daily activities involves stalking the Alexander Wang website for new pieces to lust after. Shockingly, Wang actually has some great sales quite often and it’s not hard to find a piece you can make a staple in your everyday wardrobe. Personally, I scooped up the scuba dress in oatmeal. Perfect for right now with tights and ankle boots, and I can easily transition it into spring with a wind-breaker and a bright pair of flats. Here are my top five picks currently marked down on the Wang site as we speak (hint, one is only $50…)

All, Wang.
